"Progressive" cartoonists Ted Rall and Jeff Danziger mocked President Bush's National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, who is black, with caricatures of her as a "House Nigga" (Rall) and a thick-lipped, bare-footed Prissy character from "Gone With the Wind" (Danziger). A writer for the militant open-borders publication La Voz de Aztlan assailed conservative author Linda Chavez and me as sellouts and complained: "Both are married to Jews, both are Republicans and both are being utilized to attack Mexicans and Mexican-Americans."
"Being utilized" is a constant theme of liberal critics who refuse to tolerate minority conservative dissenters. You want to know how much uglier it will get? Here's a sample of the hate mail that arrives in my e-mailbox every day -- and these predated the Williams/Department of Education fiasco:
-- "Say, how does it feel to be a paid prostitute for the republicans? Go get some more collagen injected in your lips, it makes you look more the part."
-- "michelle how does it feel to whore yourself for the republican party .it must be tough to look yourself in the mirror."
-- "You are a vile, disgusting tramp that has sold her sole to the white dogs (not all whites are dogs though) and cast your lot with the House Niggers."
-- "How much does the GOP pay you to be their propaganda whore?"
As a result of the Williams/Department of Education payoff, the rhetoric against the rest of us will get even nastier. In the name of "minority outreach," the Republican education bureaucrats who cooked up their pathetic scheme with Williams have done more damage to our credibility than all the unhinged liberal cartoonists and race-baiters and grievance-mongers could ever hope to do.
Thanks for nothing.
