The Media Protects another Racist Democrat

By Onan Coca   / 27 May 2014   / 0 Comments   

Ellen Birnbaum (D-Great Neck, NY) is a long-time Democrat operative and a Representative to the New York state Legislature. Birnbaum recently made some statements that we can’t help but play the “If a Republican would have said that…” game with.

Here’s what Birnbaum said.

According to people with whom Birnbaum spoke, and who overheard her, she said: "Why would anyone want to go there? It's a bad neighborhood . . . It's a ghetto, and it's full of those black people." Those present said Birnbaum then leaned in and said, in a lowered voice, "Come on, who from the rest of town is going to go there? After all, mostly black people live there. All they want to do is play basketball."

end racismBirnbaum is resisting calls for her resignation and says that she simply wants to get back to work for her community.

The greater story here is that no one in the main stream media seems to have picked up on this story. In fact, this latest example of Democrat racism is just another in a long series of recent abuses. Just two weeks ago we brought to light four other instances of overtly racist words/actions from national Democrats that have happened in just the last month! This makes case #5… and none of them have gotten any national attention.


Why not?

I personally believe it just doesn’t fit the media narrative on racism. Which is why when some small town Republican mayor says something that can be construed as racist, it’s huge news, but the same comments from a Democrat seems to get papered over. When a Republican does it, the media acts as though it’s simply confirmation of what they’ve always believed. When a Democrat does it, it’s an outlier… even if there are five outliers in less than a month.

Birnbaum’s rhetoric is disgusting and wrong. She should be run out of office and the media should be the ones leading the charge. Sadly, with a few minor exceptions that doesn’t seem to be happening.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
