Former RNC Chair Michael Steele was furious when a member of the CPAC leadership admitted the truth while on stage, that Steele was only promoted to RNC Chair because he…
The establishment left put a Republican label on Michael Steele and then said, “go reel them in,” with RINOs helping him to become the chairman of the Republican Party from 2009 to 2011. There are reasons why he only served one term and was replaced by Reince Priebus. In addition to his caustic personality, his racism and RINO credentials figured prominently in that result.
Steele has since gone on to become the token “Republican” on many MSNBC panels and elsewhere, taking the Democrat position in manners that would make even John McCain or Jeff Flake proud. Unlike the two disgraceful Senators, Steele’s got that ever-handy race card to lay down whenever it suits him.
He played it again on Saturday after one of the CPAC leaders at this year’s convention spoke the uncomfortable truth. Ian Walters, of the American Conservative Union, which hosts of the annual CPAC convention, told those attending a dinner Friday night, “We elected Mike Steele as chairman because he was a black guy. That was the wrong thing to do.” Walters is also a black guy.
Steele chose, in true Democrat or RINO fashion, to immediately jump on and distort the comment into something it was not, claiming racism. If anything, it was an indictment of the racism, that, in affirmative action style, elevated the unqualified Steele because he is black. It was racist to promote an otherwise unqualified Steele based upon his skin color, in an effort to attempt to court black membership into the GOP. [[VIDEO BELOW]]
So Walters was actually speaking out against racism. But the black supremacists on the left don’t care about facts or reality. They view things from the perspective of how much feigned outrage will benefit them, how they can distort the truth in order to create or capitalize on an opportunity.
While some might expect a top Republican to hold a private conversation regarding the comments with Matt Schlapp, the ACU chairman. But one can’t generate political opportunities and pretend to be wronged nearly as well without an audience to invite to share your outrage. Steele extended just such an invitation to “the black community” on Saturday’s “Steele & Ungar” program on SiriusXM.”
Both were engaged in a discussion in which Schlapp dismissed the comment by Walters, saying, “Those words that tumbled out of [Ian’s] mouth, I believed were unfortunate words.” Reaching for the race card and laying it down in front of Schlapp, Steele said, “It’s not ‘unfortunate. It is stupid to sit there and say that we elected a black man chairman of the party, and that was a mistake. Do you know how that sounds to the black community?”
He certainly knows how you’re spinning it, having been embarrassed for the truth being told, Steele. Do you know how your idiotic furor sounds in the white community? It sounds exactly like what it is, a distortion of the facts for political and personal reasons. It helps to remind white people and all Republicans how nice it is to have your face, along with your mouth, in the rear view mirror.
Walters didn’t say it was wrong to elect a black guy, just that it was wrong to elect Steele with that as his only “qualification.” Steele instead chose to go all “Al Sharpton” on Schlapp, saying, “I’ve spent 41 years in this party, and for him to stand on that stage and denigrate my service to this party, and for you as a friend to sit there and go, ‘Well, you have been critical of this party …’ There is only one word I can say, and I can’t say it on this air.”
How odd, that’s one of the many words that can’t be used on-air to describe Steele. Schlapp never did deny the truth. Steele played his race card and still had a losing hand. He’ll play it again though. Surely Jake Tapper will have him on on Sunday to discuss how racist Republicans are, and how unappreciative of the “great work” Steele has done for the country over those 41 years of getting paid more than he’s worth to do a job.
