NPR: Romney a George Wallace ‘White Supremacist,’ GOP Women are ‘Battered’

Unfortunately, hate is the main selling point on the National Public Radio distributed Smiley & West radio show and last week we got a big dollop of bile spewed against Republicans in general and GOP nominee Mitt Romney in particular.

The October 26 episode featured host Cornel West, a long-time radical lefty from Princeton, and substituting for West’s co-host Tavis Smiley was Julianne Malveaux, a woman well-known for spewing racist, hate at every opportunity.

Naturally, Malveaux felt that the only reason anyone would vote against Barack Obama is because they are sheet-wearing racists. When West asked why the election was so close, Malveaux said, “the underlying fact is in my opinion is racism.”

Curiously, Malveaux didn’t try to explain how, if all whites are racists, Obama was elected in the first place, nor did she explain how Mr. Obama got the biggest white vote of any Democrat presidential candidate since the early 1960s. But, there you have it.

Granted, Malveaux isn’t the only one to throw a preemptive race card at the 2012 election. Only two days after Malveaux spewed her hatred, Andrew Sullivan similarly claimed that those voting for Romney are only doing so because they are racists.

What we are seeing here is the creation of the coming explanation of why Obama will have lost the 2012 election. Haters like Sullivan, Cornel West, and Malveaux are warming up the excuse that the only reason Obama might lose is because the nation is suddenly, once again filled with abject racists.

As to Malveaux, she has made many other hateful comments over the years. Just a few years ago, in 2010, Malveaux wrote an op ed for USA Today noting how she hates the Fourth of July. Then, back in 2007, Malveaux said that the wrongly accused students at Duke university were “hooligans” that “do not deserve an apology” even though they were proven innocent of the charges of rape leveled against them. And, further back, in 1994, Malveaux announced that she hoped U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas would die of heart disease.

But that wasn’t the only nonsense disgorged by Malveaux during the show. She also claimed that Republican women suffer “battered women syndrome.”

“One of the statistics that frightened me was that a number of white women after the first debate because they felt that Romney was strong and Obama was weak. So, I mean I’m out of order her, but I’m saying, do these women engage in battered women syndrome? Do you want a bully in your face? This man (Romney) who’s pushing his finger and acting like you know Robo-Man, is that what you prefer?”

It gets worse. As Tim Graham notes, Bell Hooks, another guest of the show, upped the ante on hate.

Hooks is also pretty well known for having built a career spewing her hate of whites as often as possible. As her book Killing Rage begins, for instance, she wrote that she was “sitting beside an anonymous white male” that she longed to murder. Hooks was also one of those many leftists that claimed it was the U.S. that was the real terrorist nation in the aftermath of 9/11.

So, on the show, feminist Hooks one-upped Malveaux saying that Romney is a “white supremacist.” About Romney, Hooks said, “Well did you think we would ever live to see a white man running on a white supremacist ticket for Presidency?”

Cornel West went on to compare Romney to 1960′s segregationist George Wallace.

This is, of course, utter hogwash. But this is consistently what passes for “intellectual” discussion on Smiley & West.

Remember, folks. This is the sort of garbage that our tax dollars go to support on National Public Radio.

    Take away Malveaux’s race card and you’ll leave her speechless. It’s really not that surprising. When you’ve got nothing of intellectual worth – use the ever dependable race card and guilt trip.

    Another example showing that hate and divisiveness are liberal “values.”

  • Jwb10001

    Oh Carl, I’d like to introduce you to a few real racists.

  • RichFader

    Shame on you, Julianne! Now Bill Clinton’s going to die of heart disease from eating all those battered women.

      That’s just wrong. Funny as hell, but wrong.

    Sigh, time for another Teabagger reading comprehension lesson.

    The fact that the election is close because of racism doesn’t mean that “all whites are racists”.

    What are you, Todd? 5 years old?

    And you don’t deny that some of the anti-Obama vote is racist, do you?

    So only 3 or 4% of racists would be enough to make the election close.

    “if all whites are racists,” is a strawman argument, thrown up by people who defend racism in America. It’s a false argument meant to cover up the fact that in a close race like this, it only takes a few percentage points of racist voters to make the election close.

    The radio hosts are right. Racism could cause Obama to lose the election.

    Simple facts — over the heads of simple people who love racism more than America.

      Maybe we could have a decent discussion on racism if the left didnt overplay the race card every chance they got. Most racists in my experience have been democrat voters and quite a few were family members of mine.

      So if voting against Obama, because he’s black, is racist, why is it OK to vote against Romney ’cause he’s white perfectly fine?

      When faced with the true face of racism Carl doubles down. If Obama was white with his record he’d be down 10 points and would be lucky to get 80% of the African American vote. The race card is played out it’s done. It’s been over played to the point where it’s meaningless.

    bell hooks spells her name without capital letters. Some postmodern gesture of defiance of the patriarchy, I think.

      I’ve been seeing that in comments and other places for decades now. Not sure whether it’s a case of “I’m too important to pay attention to your silly rules” or “I’m not important enough to warrant capitalizing my name” or “I’m trying hard to be different and distinctive” – but it’s an indication to me that if you’re doing it, I don’t have to pay much attention to anything you’ve got to say when you’re spouting your opinion…

      • Commander_Chico_Cognoscente

        The flip side of it is capitalizing Improper Nouns, like ve vere Germans.

        • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

          That’s almost preferable. At least it’s slightly amusing, while the other is just… pitiable.

          “Dang, you’re so broke you can’t even afford capital letters! Oh, man!”

    Let’s take a poll on what day we see the first prominent “…..worse than W. Bush!!” rage on the Net or in the punditry. I start the bidding with November 21st.
