MSM’s Favorite ‘Republican’: GOP Still Looks Down on Minorities

The mainstream media loves having the Republican Party’s resident Democrat Colin Powell on as a guest, because he says everything they love to hear. Powell didn’t disappoint this morning:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday and had some strong words for his fellow GOP members: “The Republican party needs to take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed.” Powell criticized the GOP of today for everything from their views on climate change to taxes. Most importantly? The party has a “dark vein of intolerance” running through it and “if they don’t change” along with America’s changing demographics, “they are going to be in trouble.”

Host David Gregory asked Powell why he was still a Republican and he noted that it was the way he was “raised,” but that “the Republican party right now is having an identity problem.”

The GOP “still looks down on minorities,” Powell said. He slammed Sarah Palin‘s “shuck and jive” comments from last year about President Obama and criticized Republican’s use of the word “lazy” to describe the president.

The GOP only represents the far right-wing of the political spectrum? The Republican presidential nominee was the man the left credits with providing the model and inspiration for Obamacare, for cryin’ out loud!

Has Powell forgotten the vile, demeaning and hateful things the left called him (as well as Condi Rice) when he served under Bush? If Powell wants to see a party looking down on minorities, he should take notice of how the left treats minorities who dare stray from the Democrat plantation.

The MSM doesn’t need Cialis as long as they have “Republicans” like this to interview (all real Republicans endorsed Obama, didn’t they?):
