Well, well, well…so Harry ‘The Old School Marm’ Reid thinks that Republican Senators are acting like the slaveholding Senators in the years before The Civil War:

…Reid argued that Republicans are using the same stalling tactics employed in the pre-Civil War era.

“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all the Republicans can come up with is, ‘slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ If you think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,” Reid said Monday. “When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said ‘slow down, it’s too early, things aren’t bad enough.'”

Yea…why not throw in the suffrage and civil rights while you’re at it:

He continued: “When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted they simply, slow down, there will be a better day to do that, today isn’t quite right.

“When this body was on the verge of guaranteeing equal civil rights to everyone regardless of the color of their skin, some senators resorted to the same filibuster threats that we hear today.”

As for the last charge, Fox News [thank God for them] reminds us:

The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.

Richard, over at Three Beers Later, has a list of Democrat ‘accomplishments’ on the race issue.  Here are two of them [tip of the fedora to Paco]:

Democrats created the Klan.

Democrats created Jim Crow.

Perhaps William Jacobson had the best comment:

Sometimes the foolishness speaks for itself….

Trouble is, Prof., there are enough foolish folks out there to believe what Thin Reid says without questioning it.

Paco certainly wins the award for best Blog Post Title on this one:

Harry Reid Soars to the Heights of Outrageousness on Gossamer Wings of Imbecility

Clifton takes this incident and goes on to make a more general [and spot-on] observation:

I have noticed and I am sure you have too, that many on the left love to compare every issue to the worst possible examples in history. For example, any recession under a Republican administration is likened to the Great Depression or any war under a Republican administration is always like Viet Nam. Why do they do this and who actually buys into these over the top comparisons away?

I may have an answer: the Left believes in very unpopular things.  They know this, but they also believe that the reason this is so is that most people are unenlightened ignoramuses who cling to bad ideas [like freedom and religion].  The Left believes it has found THE ANSWER to bringing about the immanentizing of the eschaton [heaven on Earth].  Trouble is, no one likes their solutions once they understand them.  Therefore, the Left must practice The Big Lie.  They feel they are compelled, being surrounded by so many morons, to deceive the masses for their own good.  Because, let’s not forget, they have THE ANSWER.  A component of The Big Lie is The Big Deception:

The Left also practices a variation of The Big Lie that I like to call The Big Deception which involves a Big Deflection away from the reality of the situation.  None of their policies or actions can survive direct questioning, so the Leftists must turn the tables on the questioners and make it seem as though the inquisitors have bad or evil intentions. Overtime and after constant and unrelenting hectoring, the Left’s way of thinking triumphs.  They successfully infect enough people so that this diseased mode of thinking becomes chronic, deep-rooted, instinctual.  If the Devil’s greatest triumph was that he convinced people he did not exist, the Left’s greatest triumph has been to convince people that the Leftist way of thinking is normal.  It is not.  It is a perversion of reason and a horribly mutant form of logic. It is antithetical to human life.  Nothing but decay and destruction are left [pun intended] in it’s wake.

Therefore, in this case, those who aren’t raaaaacists are repeatedly denounced as raaaaacists.

Stacy McCain weighs in:

There are five A’s in RAAAAACIST. For some reason, Michelle Malkin misspells (or miscounts) the word:

Crying “RAAAAAACIST:” Always the first and last refuge of left-wing scoundrels.

Maybe Harry Reid is angry

because Bob Byrd has gone wobbly on health care?

The question with Reid is, which came first, the scoundrel or the left-wing?…
