    Saturday Night Card Game (Pick a race card)(Reader Poll)

    Saturday Night Card Game (Pick a race card)(Reader Poll)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

    Tonight is the first Saturday Night Card Game Readers’ Choice Award, you choose the person who played the race card the best (or should it be “worst”?) this week.

    The nominees are:

    1.  Morgan Freeman, for his performance on the Piers Morgan show, where he delivered the following lines with a straight face:

    “The tea partiers who are controlling the Republican party … their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here.”

    2.  Jonathan Bryant, the Texas high school government teacher who called local Tea Party leader George Rodriguez a “Nazi” for opposing the Dream Act.  (Maybe he just should have said Rodriguez doesn’t “have a heart”)

    “So you would have students in this room deported?” asked the teacher.

    The panelist replied, “Yes, I would if they were illegal. You bet.”

    Rodriguez also told the teacher if the person is here illegally, they are breaking the law.

    “You know what I would have? I would have you teach more balanced – conservative,” added Rodriguez.

    After those remarks is when the teacher made the Nazi comment saying, “You can just say what you are – a Nazi.”

    3.  Emmy Host Jane Lynch

    “Yesterday my daughter had a tea party with her little friends and it was so cute. They complained about taxes, called Obama a communist and wondered how the Latina kid got in.”

    Poll will be open until 7 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, September 25.

    I hate hating Morgan Freeman. He always seemed so warm and compassionate, I really did not think he had this kind of bitterness inside of him.

    These racist flinging people probably think that the tea party supports Herman Cain because he is black. I hate to tell them, that is the only reason Obama has support, that and the average intelligence in this country is not very high. Herman Cain’s biggest problem might be that he is too smart to be president. The left just can’t comprehend that there really are intelligent black people that base their ideology on rational analytical thought rather than bleeding hearts, bitterness, and class warfare.

    More slander against tea party philosophy. Hey Morgan, Do you not recall the effort by Democrats in 2004 to make Bush a one-term president?d And, was all that unfounded unbridled unrelenting hate and vitriol directed at Bush and Cheney by the left because they are white? Dang, I liked Morgan Freeman too.

    Another illusion shot to sh. I’ve really admired Morgan Freeman as an actor and thought he was an intelligent guy.

    I have been disappointed by many of the Black men I respected. It turns out they are racist. Opposition to a black leader is seen as opposition to blacks as a group rather than that person’s ideas or character. Racism “Whites are causing problems” is rampant among the Black community (eg NAAACP, Black Panthers, Black Causcus) and is not recognized as such.

    Once I would have supported Colin Powell for President had he chosen to enter the race; Now I suspect that Obama’s race might have been a factor in his decision to endorse Obama. Mr. Freeman had my respect until now; I had thought him a bit more thoughtful and perceptive than he appears to be here.

    I am disappointed that race is even thought to play a role let alone constantly harping on it when it should be fairly obvious that it is irrelevant to the issues at hand.

    Okay, I know I’m veering off topic… “Herman Cain handily wins Florida GOP straw poll” — and check out the videos too: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/09/herman-cain-wins-florida-straw-poll-rick-perry-romney-.html
