This is classic because the Democrats expect all minority persons to "fall in line" in regards to the Party line. If they do not, typically they are maligned and besmirched... one only need recall the Left's tolerance (quoting a poster at Politico, "mkat33"):
Enjoy... I did:
when the left attacked Clarence Thomas, why wasn't that about race? When the left attacked Alberto Gonzales, why wasn't that about race? When the left attacked Sarah Palin, why wasn't that about gender? You may think that those on the right are the haters, but I guarantee you'll never see a "Sonia Sotomayor is a C***" t-shirt. Sure, the Democrats have a bigger tent, but that's only to allow them to fit the hordes of intolerant stooges that blindly follow the left's politics of hate.
UPDATE: Harry Alford goes there on John Ziegler's radio show today. Alford blasts Barbara Boxer for the way she treated him during a Senate committee hearing, calling her a racist and accusing her of treating him "like an ignorant jigaboo up there."
