Colin Powell comes out to poke his finger in the eye of Republicans, again. The one-time Republican favorite for president charged the Republican party with intolerance.
He offered no real proof, or substance, just leveled the charge. Yet I never hear him accuse the Democrats of anything, but particularly on race matters. Of course he knows how the game is played by now: he says it, then thousands of Democrats cite Powell as an authority to attack Republicans. It comes off as just a political hatchet job. Is he still claiming to be a Republican, I really wonder why? I guess it lends a layer of legitimacy to his attacks.
“I still see it. I still see it in the Republican Party and I still see it in other parts of our country. You don’t have to be a Republican to be touched by this dark vein,”
See the story if you are up for seeing his rationale, or lack thereof, in Washington Times.
Saying nothing of the dark vein of racist, anti-Israel politics from the Democrats.
