This what happens if you're a minority and you go against those who supposedly are "for" minorities

This has been a frequent charge against black Republicans since black Democrats became the powers that be in the black community. And while I can't say for sure where this irrationality comes from it exists and all be it the only way I know about this is second hand. Besides as I've stated in an earlier post to attack blac Republicans or conservatives is just another way to continue the divide amongst African-Americans and there is absolutely no need for it. All because blacks seem to have so much to lose right now.

Now this story and I depart from my black theme for a post. From Rush Limbaugh a story regarding a gay Republican by the name Arthur Finklestien, who just so happens to be a GOP operative who has launched a campaign against Hillary Clinton. The only purpose was to defeat Hillary Clinton when she is up for re-election next year. That being said this is where the first black president comes into play.

Now to be honest, I watched Meet the Press a few years ago when under his breath, Julian Bond made a rather disparaging remark about Rep. JC Watts. I actually caught apart of it, with him saying "Hut-Hut-Hut". This was an attack or an insult or something meant to hurt. Congressman Watts chastised the NAACP chairman for that foolishness. There was no need for that. If there wasn't an honest moment on Sunday morning TV that was it right there. In the raw.

In any case Bill Clinton made a statement about Mr. Finklestien's activism in the New York Daily News. Here's a quote...

"... He went to Massachusetts and married his longtime male partner and then he comes back here and announces this," Clinton said at a Harlem news conference.

"I thought, one of two things. Either this guy believes his party is not serious, and is totally Machiavellian in his position, or there's some sort of self-loathing there. I was more sad for him."

Of course the article alludes to John Kerry's statement about Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter during a debate last year. Apparently Clinton's comments regarding Finklestein was connected to that moment.

How can a gay man possibly be against liberals? How can a black man possibly be against Democrats? How can they be against people and a party who are inclusive and tolerant and understanding? Where did this lousy distinction come from? How are Republicans not inclusive, tolerant, and understanding?

Eventually I post it, but I've ran into articles talking about why the left hypes itself up in that fashion. But for not I want you the reader to let this nonsense sink in. I know many of you may know what's up. But let me clarify here, this is a gay man who went to Massachusettes to get married to his partner, but he's a Republican, and now he's a self-loathing and self-hating. I just must say if anyone should be dumb enough to make this statement they really need to look in a mirror.
