All is fair in love, war and kicking hypocritical liberal ass! ……………………………… ……………………………………. ……………………………… ……….. …………………………………………
The litany of liberal Democrats who slammed President Donald Trump as a “racist” for a speech he delivered during a campaign-style rally Saturday evening in Pennsylvania might want to check themselves before they wreck themselves.
I’ll explain why in a second, but first let’s take a look at what the president said that drew the left’s ire:
“Maxine Waters, a very low IQ individual, ever see her? You ever seen her? ‘We will impeach him! We will impeach the president!’ But he hasn’t done anything wrong. ‘It doesn’t matter, we will impeach him!’ She’s a low IQ individual. You can’t help it. She really is.”
Though that sounds about right to me, leftists responded as follows, according to The Daily Wire:
“He has been name-calling. He’s been saying all kinds of things. And I certainly expected him to come out with some racist remarks about me. So, he did exactly what I expected him do,” Waters said on MSNBC, playing the victim.
Former Obama speechwriter John Favreau posted a now-viral tweet stating the same: criticism of Waters’ intelligence (or lack thereof) is “racist.” Period.
Here’s Favreau’s tweet:
The President went to Pennsylvania, singled out a black Congresswoman from California, and called her stupid.
That’s not race-baiting. That’s racist.

And here are a bunch of additional tweets collated by Donn:
Just to be clear on what happened just now:
Trump said he won 52% of women, but he was apparently referring to *white* women…
…and then he described Maxine Waters as a "very low IQ individual."

Another attack on a black woman – Trump just called Maxine Waters "a very low IQ individual."
Seems like Trump is afraid of strong black women brave enough to call out his bullshit!

Trump made an incredibly racist crack about Maxine Waters needing to take an IQ test tonight at the Gridiron and it has barely even registered a mention in coverage of the event. An appalling moment that I can’t believe isn’t everyone’s lead takeaway.

Even Fox News host Juan Williams got in on the action:

As noted by Streiff of Redstate, however, “If calling Maxine Waters ‘low IQ’ is racist, then what is the left’s treatment of Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson?”
Regarding black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ mistreatment by liberals, even pesky ol’ Juan Williams took note of it during the judge’s confirmation hearings way back in 1991:
To listen to or read some news reports on Thomas over the past month is to discover a monster of a man, totally unlike the human being full of sincerity, confusion, and struggles whom I saw as a reporter who watched him for some 10 years. He has been conveniently transformed into a monster about whom it is fair to say anything, to whom it is fair to do anything. President Bush may be packing the court with conservatives, but that is another argument, larger than Clarence Thomas. In pursuit of abuses by a conservative president the liberals have become the abusive monsters.
Sen. Charles E. Grassley said on the Senate floor Tuesday that the smears heaped on Thomas amounted to the “worse treatment of a nominee I’ve seen in 11 years in the Senate.” Sen. Dennis DeConcini said it “is inconceivable, it is unfair and I can’t imagine anything more unfair to the man.” And Sen. Orrin G. Hatch described the entire week’s performance as a “last-ditch attempt to smear the judge.”
Sadly, that’s right.
When Thomas’ dropped his memoir, “My Grandfather’s Son,” about two decades later, the liberal smear campaign against him began anew, with liberals accusing him of being “incompetent” and “not qualified.” One liberal commentator for The Washington Post even reportedly suggested “[t]hat the only reason he was appointed is that he’s black.”
Black retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, the current secretary of Housing and Urban Development, has faced the exact same sort of smears, with liberals calling him an “Uncle Tom” and a “token candidate” — and even suggesting he might be a druggie:
Ben Carson has the best mushrooms

I'm sure glad Ben Carson fired those staffers who advised him to look incredibly stoned during the last debate. Look out, field.
— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) December 31, 2015
Isn’t that the same Favreau who made an issue out of Trump calling Waters a “a very low IQ individual?” Yes, I believe it is!
“Think what you will about Carson, but you don’t get to be a neurosurgeon by being dumb and isn’t accusing him of drug use — at least I think that’s the implication — racist? Or as racist as whacking Waters over being a moron?” noted Streiff.
I’m admittedly not that particularly bothered by smears because this is politics, after all. What does exasperate me is when leftist hypocrites lodge false accusations of racism and bigotry.
Look, if President Donald Trump is a racist for calling Maxine Waters “a very low IQ individual” as per her continually idiotic rhetoric and behavior, then leftists like Favreau, among others, are practically members of the Ku Klux Klan given their never-ending smears of any and all black conservatives, including Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson!
