Malkin: the Liberal Racists' 'Uncle Tom' Card

By Michelle Malkin

Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He's a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He's also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism.

On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court's decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures. Winkler fumed: "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas."

This Ivy League-trained public official and attorney relied on smug bigotry to make his case against a Supreme Court justice who happens to be black. "Uncle Thomas" wasn't a typo. Denigration was the goal, not an accident. It was a knowing, deliberate smear.

After being called out by conservative social media users for his cheap attack on Clarence Thomas, Winkler then revealed his true color: yellow. He deleted the tweet (captured for posterity at my Twitter curation site, and pleaded ignorance.

"I did not understand 'Uncle Tom' as a racist term, and there seems to be some debate about it. I do apologize for it, however," he sniveled. "I didn't think it was offensive to suggest that Justice Thomas should be even more concerned about racial discrimination than colleagues," he protested.

Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color. Accusing a non-white conservative of collectivist race traitorism. Employing one of the most infamous, overused epithets against minority conservatives in the Democratic lexicon. "Apologizing," but disclaiming responsibility. Sorry ... that he got caught.

Just another day at the left-wing racist office.

Rabid liberal elitists expect and demand that we swallow their left-wing political orthodoxy whole and never question. When we don't yield, their racist and sexist diatribes against us are unmatched. My IQ, free will, skin color, eye shape, name, authenticity and integrity have been routinely ridiculed or questioned for more than two decades because I happen to be an unapologetic brown female free-market conservative. My Twitter account biography jokingly includes the moniker "Oriental Auntie-Tom" -- just one of thousands of slurs hurled at me by libs allergic to diversity of thought -- for a reason. It's a way to hold up an unflinching mirror at the holier-than-thou NoH8 haters and laugh.

We conservatives "of color" are way past anger about the Uncle Tom/Aunt Tomasina attacks. We're reviled by the left for our "betrayal" of our supposed tribes -- accused of being Uncle Toms, Aunt Tomasinas, House Niggas, puppets of the White Man, Oreos, Sambos, lawn jockeys, coconuts, bananas, sellouts and whores. This is how the left's racial and ethnic tribalists have always rolled. But their insults are not bullets. They are badges of honor. The Uncle Tom card has been played out.

Of course Winkler didn't think it was offensive. Smarty-pants liberal racists never think they're being racist. In their own sanctimonious minds, progressives of pallor can never be guilty of bigotry toward minority conservatives. Ignorance is strength. Slurs are compliments. Intolerance is tolerance.

And when all else fails, left-wing prejudice is always just a well-intended joke. (PBS commentator Julianne Malveaux's death wish for Justice Thomas set the standard: "I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. ... He is an absolutely reprehensible person.")

Back in her day, before the advent of democratizing social media, Malveaux and her elitist PBS friends could get away with such vile bile. But liberal crabs in the bucket, viciously trying to drag dissenters "of color" down, can no longer engage in hit-and-run with impunity. Conservatives on Twitter have changed the dynamic in an underappreciated, revolutionary way. The pushback against liberal political bigotry is bigger, stronger and swifter than it's ever been.

You can delete, but you cannot hide.

    If the Liberal shoe was on the other foot like Paula Deen, he would be forced by the Porgressive Politcal Thought Police who care nothing of our Constitutional Rights to free speech, to Publicly humiliate himself and pay the required blackmail donation to a rainbow coalition type organization of Judas Jesse Jacksons before being allowed to ever again make an honest living. Paula Deen unlike this slime ball coward had the courage to admit she like every human being on the American planet actually did use the “N” word, like you have, I have Obama has and Bush has because some words just best describe the behavior people engage in which by their action defines who and what they are. All the respect for Black American adults who behave like adults, and all free speech “N” wording to those who act like one, and when they get elected to the highest office of the land by their actions, laziness, misspent vacations of stolen tax dollars, bribed politicians, murdered Ambassadors set back the cause of Black freedom, manhood and equality another 250 years, and our God given American rights to free speech as well.

    With this Supreme Court vote the Liberal oppression screw of our Freedoms, equality and free speech has finally turned, and now let us see if the cowards who can only compete in society with last minute rule changes, bought judges, juducial nullification and silencing of our truths can actually live up to their promise of equality and ability to survive and thrive on a political playing field now leveled with no special exceptions for minorities who claim to be equal, but only with special privileges and rules to tie the hands of others behind their backs to sway the odds of life in their government bought and paid for favor, bought and paid for with other people’s money of course. Welcome back America to the real world where you are now judged by what you do, not which Judge you can buy off to cover the multitude of your social failures and sins.

      inluminatuo, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who immediately saw the correlation between this article and what has recently transpired with Ms. Deen. It is typical of the libtards to publicly cry “foul” whenever someone outside of their political bandwagon utters one of their “forbidden” words or phrases, while at the same time reserving the exclusive use of those same words and phrases for themselves. This is just another example of racism today. It not only exists – it is growing by leaps and bounds. Ms. Deen was supposedly fired because of something she said some 30 odd years ago. Children of that generation, who grew up in roughly the same geographic region, heard their grandparents and possibly even their parents, use that term in every day conversation, as it was an accepted “norm”. Most of us no longer use that term because those same parents and grandparents raised us to be courteous and polite, so we don’t deliberately try to offend others by our verbage. But the real crux of the issue is not what Ms. Deen said some 30 years ago. She has been publicly humiliated and given the media-equivalent of a tar and feathering – not because of what she said, but because of what she represents: a personal style and type of cooking that is the diametric opposite to what Ms. Osama and her “foodie police” deem as “correct”. Therefore, she had to go – not quietly, but as a “lesson” to the rest of us less we step out of line from their political bandwagon – much the same way that some people used to be publicly humiliated and in some cases executed just because of the color of their skin. Make no mistake – I would never make light of what transpired back then. It was wrong and abhorrent and every other bad name you can think of to call it. However, what has happened to Ms. Deen is just the tip of the iceberg – a warning shot across the bow. We conservatives had better watch our step or else the Osama crowd is coming for us and they intend to take our jobs, our homes, our families and above all else, our faith and our freedom. If there were any justice, Mr. Winkler would be fired from his job for his offensive verbage; however, as a state legislator, he is paid by some of those same taxpayers who he probably offended. What better occupation could he have from which to launch his verbal SCUDs?

    Welcome Mr. Winkler to the democrat party. Where you can spout your bigotry and hate and never be held accountable. You should do well and I’m sure we will see much more of you in the future as you climb the ranks of scum within your own party.Once again, Welcome home !

    When all the smear efforts were being thrown at Clarence Thomas, I was curious as to whether he was as incompetent and stupid as Democrats were claiming, so I read his first major majority decision. It was well reasoned and well expressed, basically what one would hope for in a SC justice.

    What I do find disturbing about recent appointments to the SC is that they have been made for ideological considerations rather than proven judicial excellence.

    Being a leftist has “evolved” to mean that you never have to take personal responsibility for specious attacks on your political enemies..because you are just unable to win a relevant philosophical debate with facts. “They (leftists) do not argue, because they cannot win an argument. Logic and rationality are foreign languages to them. They try to throw their opposition off-balance by deliberately engineering a ‘crisis,’ then demanding conservatives respond to it — with the ‘solution’ they supported all along.” – Interview with Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports, Dec. 16, 2010.

    Ryan Winkler’s racist attack on Justice Clarence Thomas represents just one more classic example of the Left’s modus operandi. Although the NAACP and other liberals have been pushing nebulous “hate speech” legislation for years, they never intended that such legislation apply to them. They only wanted to be able to label conservative speech, and assign “hidden meanings” to pictures or “code words” therein. They wanted to make it possible for left-wing groups to make outrageous, politically-motivated accusations about “code words,” and then express phony outrage at these perceived “insults” to their race or political sensibilities (real or contrived) and make them prosecutable.

    And, you’re correct, Michelle. Rep. Winkler is only “sorry” that he was quickly “called out,” and that his rhetoric was labeled as what it clearly was, in your words, “plantation progressivism.”

    Well Mr. Winkler… to quote that late great conservative patriot (and I do mean PATRIOT) Mr. Fred Rodgers…..”can you say..HISSY-FIT… sure, sure you can”. It’s stunning how these “regressive” libs completely melt down and lose control of all the deceitful, misleading lies they spew forth pretending to be so anti-racist when they begin to loose the uneven playing field they so lovingly enjoyed all these years.
    I have to admit… I’m starting be become entertained watching all this regressive liberalism implode. Oh…and ..I believe you Mr. Winkler…you ARE sorry.

    I like Michelle Malkin a lot and agree with her on, pretty much, everything. I understand her anger, as it obviously comes out in her writing and TV commentary. However, I wish she would rein in her use of inflammatory descriptions and name calling. It makes her legitimate and well researched information come across as argumentative diatribe. I would want nothing better than to have liberals read her articles and glean some good honest information from there. As it is right now, I see only those of us on the conservative side actually willing to read her research in its entirety.

    Mr. Winkler only said what most Black people in the USA think about Clarence Thomas.

    The only people that hate Black more than Clarence Thomas are the Grand Wizard of the KKK, the GOP right-wingers and the the Teabaggers.

    Black people stopped looking to Clarence Thomas for help years ago. He benefitted from the same progarams that he is trying to destroy. He likes being the “only chip” in the cookie and will do anything he can possibly do to keep it that way.

      Zelda your absolutely racist comment is stunning in the amount of racist hatred that you were able to pack into three short paragraphs. Sadly, there are many more racists such as you out there, in all shades of skin color, from the very lightest to the very darkest. Better rid yourself of the hatred in your own heart, before sitting in judgement of others.

    Zelda, why is it that certain (black?)liberals like yourself feel “entitled” to receive “help” from every other person of color, even those who have essentially become successful on their own merits, and so appeciate the advantages of a basically level playing field and the equal OPPORTUNITY to achieve (with hard work), but do not not necessarily believe in a guaranteed equality of outcome?

    It’s the classic “crab mentality” — that which occurs when a person of color becomes very successful on their own (outside sports), and especially if they develop a conservative philosophy along the way. Look at the disgraceful treatment by you and the black community towards Justice Thomas, Col. Allen West, A. J. Watts, Condelezza Rice and a number of other prominent black conservatives. You’re all in favor of “diversity,” except in political philosophy. Unless you’re out there “organizing” for more welfare entitlements and racial preferences, you are immediately vilified and labeled with racist terminology (“Uncle Tom,” “oreo” and even “porch” or “house n-word”). And the black community then tries to grab onto him or her and pull that person back into the “crab bucket.” It is not only the black liberals, but also the white liberal “elites” who wish to keep their power and influence by promoting “victim” status for a large voting bloc of blacks in perpetuity, keeping them on the massa’s “plantation,” and never requiring them to take any personal responsibility for their own situation.
