Well yesterday Daniel Burke’s article in the Washington Post titled, “Will Mormons’ racial history be a problem for Mitt Romney?” tried to tarnish Romney with the brush of past discrimination in the Mormon priesthood. Burke states that “Until 1978, the LDS church banned men of African descent from its priesthood.” But ifthe actions of others in a group you belong to reflect on you then should Obama be tainted with the racial bigotry of the Democratic Party. For none other than Bull Connor was a Democrat and the history of many elected Democratic who were historically significant racists is well documented and was tolerated by their party. Bull Connor was also a member of the Democratic National Committee. That’s the governing board of the national Democratic Party, the one currently chaired by Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Not sure if Mr.Burke’s guilt by association would have painted President Kennedy as anti-women’s rights given that the Catholic Church won’t allow women in the priesthood. But my guess is Mr. Burke and the Washington Post would find an excuse to hold a different standard for Democrats.
Anyway, this is clearly the angel the progressive Main Stream Media will work in the months ahead. Get ready for Obama surrogates like Chris Matthews to push this theme. Come to think of it Mr. Burke, isn’t Chris Matthews one of those anti-women Catholics?
