this is what passes for intelligent life on the planet liberalism

I'm well aware that modern liberalism is a philosophy and a pseudo-religion built on fantasy and fiction. I know that people who are infected with the disease of liberalism are incapable of discerning right from wrong and truth from lies. I know all that. Sometimes, though, I will read or hear something from a modern liberaliar that is so far removed from reality that it amazes me, even though I know what liberals are like.

The above link is a perfect example.

Marie Cocco-Puffs is an astonishingly empty-headed liberal columnist for The Washington Post. This particular piece talks about how Republicans are racist because all of the GOP presidential candidates are white men, while the Democrats are the party of love and tolerance because their list of candidates includes one black, one woman, and one Hispanic. The teacher in me is compelled to offer a lesson here on truth, justice, and the American Way, with a little history thrown in.

Today's lesson begins in the pre-Civil War days when slavery was legal. The Republican Party was born in 1854. It was a pretty diverse group, containing men who had previously been Whigs, Anti-Slavery Democrats, Free-Soilers, Know-Nothings, and Abolitionists. One issue kept them united--they were opposed to slavery. The Democrats of the day supported slavery and opposed equality for blacks. Their hatred of the new Republicans grew to such a point that they started to refer to their members as "Black Republicans." The Democrats called them that because Republicans favored equality for blacks. Of course, in 1860 it was Abraham Lincoln, the Republican candidate for president, who won the election. He was also the president who freed the slaves. The subsequent "Civil War Amendments" to the Constitution were passed as a result of Republican perseverance against strong Democrat opposition.

Throughout the decades following the Civil War, the Republican Party continued to fight for equal rights for blacks, while the Democrats continued to fight for a return to the 1830's. Did you know that, in the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 percent of the votes. Compare that to the majority of Republicans, who voted in favor of civil rights legislation in over 96% of the votes (see and

Did you know that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would not have passed had it not been for the tireless work of GOP Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen? Read about him at There wasn't enough support among the majority Democrat Party to get the bill passed, so Dirksen worked himself almost to death to get the law passed. Once again, the Republican Party sought equality at the same time the Democrats were yearning for a return to 1830.

Today's Democrats are no different. Hillary adopts a ridiculous old-timey "colored girl" accent when she talks to black audiences. Doe she think that blacks won't be able to understand her if she speaks normally? That's pretty racist!

Barak Hussein Obama announced his candidacy, and immediately the Democrat establishment criticized him for not being "black enough." The Los Angeles Times called him "The Magic Negro." Good grief! It doesn't get any more racist than that!

Of course, Joe Biden is the model of tolerance. Who could forget his infamous Dunkin' Donut comment?
"In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian-Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking."

How about Chris Dodd? This is the guy who stood up on the floor of the U.S. Senate and proclaimed that Robert Byrd, former member of the KKK, was a great leader, and that he would have made a fime American leader during the Civil War. A former member of the KKK, who dropped the N-word bomb on national TV in 2001 and who filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would have been a great Civil War-era leader?

Whenever a Republican president attempts to appoint a so-called minority to the federal juduciary, the Democrats can always be counted on to block that nomination. Who can forget the Democrat hatred directed towards Clarence Thomas, Janice Rogers Brown, and Miguel Estrada? Ted "The Swim Coach" Kennedy called these fine people "Neanderthals."

Maria Cocco-Puffs, blissfully ignorant of American history and the truth about Democrat racism, concluded her piece in this way:

Bill Clinton pledged to build a "bridge to the 21st Century,'' a slogan so trite as to invite ridicule. Now Republicans offer a scarier path. Theirs is a road back to the 19th.

She is tragically misinformed.
