While reading Prager’s piece I learned something new. It appears that while the CBC is free to lob charges of race-based discrimination at anything that moves, especially if it is white or tea-based, they are free from this judgment themselves.
A black member of Congress whose district is largely non-black can be a member of the CBC, but a non-black congressman whose district is largely black cannot be a member. Democratic Rep Steven Cohen, whose Tennessee district is largely black, applied for membership in the CBC and was turned down for one reason: He is white. (Source: World Net Daily)
I find this hypocrisy very telling. On the one hand, we have prime examples of heated un-civil rhetoric, maybe even race-based; being tossed about by members of Congress and hardly anyone calls them on carpet for their language and statements. But a group that is opposed to the liberal waste and spending in DC is smeared with unproven accusations of racism and it continues to be a false talking point for the left to this day.
