Racist “progressives” attack Mitch McConnell’s wife

Font Size:

Everybody knows Republicans are all racists, and racists are all Republicans. That’s why it’s okay to attack Republicans based on their race.

WFPL in Louisville, KY:

A Democratic group is under sharp criticism for controversial online messages about Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife.

For months, the liberal super PAC Progress Kentucky has attacked McConnell and held demonstrations at his offices and home.

Recently, the group turned its attention to McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, with a focus on her race.

In a Feb. 14 Twitter message, Progress says: “This woman has the ear of (Sen. McConnell)—she’s his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!”

I guess it’s okay to make racial slurs against someone who looks like this:

See, it’s not racist as long as you say it about someone who doesn’t toe the liberal-leftist line. It’s only racist when bad people do it, and liberals are good people by definition. Whoops, sorry, I mean “progressives.” Because what could a better measure of progress than making dire warnings of the “yellow peril”?

Oh, and this isn’t misogynist either. It’s not part of a “War on Women” or anything like that. But that’s her own fault for not becoming a Democrat.
