Listen here as Laura dissects the progressive politics of General Powell and interviews Newt Gingrich.

The video of Colin Powell on “Meet the Press” is at The Blaze.

…“There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities.”

While not mentioning former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin or former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu by name, Powell referenced past comments from each about Obama as evidence of racism in the party…

So, John Sununu has no right to his opinion after the first Presidential debate?

“What people saw last night, I think, was a president who revealed his incompetence — how lazy and detached he is and how he has absolutely no idea how serious the economy problems of the country are and how he has failed to even begin address them,” Sununu said.

Perhaps the General has been reading “Rules for Radicals”? Or does he actually agree with Democrat Vice President Joe Biden who proclaimed to a crowd of predominately black voters in Virginia, “They’re [Romney/Ryan] gonna put y’all back in chains”?

The First Amendment apparently doesn’t apply to you, so just sit down and shut up, mmmkay?

UpdateThe Liberal Segregation of The South

Do you ever notice all the racist crap in the country comes from those oh so tolerant and inclusive “progressives” while they insist conservatives are racist? Ask Mia Love, Herman Cain, Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, or Marco Rubio, just to name a few conservative republicans of-color who have been the targets of racist liberal BS, in the political arena and in the media. And the democrat party just cannot seem to move into the 21st Century….

Update 2Powell: GOP ‘Looks Down on Minorities’

…[Powell’s reply to David Gregory was]  a typical leftist talking point. The Republican Party has not moved to the right. In fact, it has moved in rather extreme ways to the left, given its spending record and establishment opposition to the Tea Party. Ronald Reagan was significantly more conservative than George W. Bush. But this was prelude to Powell’s real agenda: labeling Republicans closet bigots…

…As for the birthers, nobody in the mainstream of the Republican Party has ever given credibility to them. Only in Colin Powell’s opportunistic mind is the GOP linked with birtherism.

What’s more, Powell is the last person on earth who should be making this claim. He says that he voted for President Obama twice because he’s a moderate Republican whose party has left him. That’s nonsense. In 2008, Republicans ran the most moderate Republican in history in Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). And Powell voted against him. Why? Let Powell, circa 2009, explain:

And I spoke at length with John McCain about his campaign and I watched Mr. Obama and his campaign. And at the end, I cannot say I was totally colorblind. But at the end, I convinced myself, based on the facts as I saw it, that he was the better choice for this time in our nation’s history.

It is Colin Powell and his perspective that are underlaced with a vein of intolerance. Powell should know better than anyone that the GOP has no such vein – after all, the GOP discussed the possibility of him running for president on its ticket for years. No, this is about liberal bullying and thuggery – claiming that anyone who opposes leftist policies does so out of racism rather than political differences. And it’s vile.

Read the entire excellent article by Ben Shapiro.

Maybe you could if you weren’t so busy lying and covering things up.

Update 3: Whereas I think it’s lazy to use the term ‘racist’

Heh!
