Colin Powell – backstabber.

Powell’s accusation [that there is a “dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the Republican Party on race”] is ridiculous on its face. Part of the Republican Party’s problem today is that the party’s leadership, if that’s the right word, is even quicker to grovel on matters of race than Democrats are, almost always at the expense of the Americans who might actually consider voting for them. The quickest way to reduce a typical Republican pol to a quivering jelly is to whisper “racist” in his ear.

Powell’s ongoing ingratitude illustrates another aspect of the pointlessness of Republican “outreach” to most minorities. Not only does the pandering alienate possible supporters, but the pandered-to, even when as lavishly preferred and honored as Powell has been, are almost never grateful. In Powell’s case, the pandered-to diversity paladin is not only ungrateful, he’s a back-stabber to boot.

Oh frikking woof. We should be used to frikking back stabbers by now. We seem to be, or we would have done what needs doing by now.

Treason was of paramount interest to medieval English kings. Not a few notables got their ears clipped or worse when they opposed the king. We can all appreciate that not all government authority is justly exercised but nowadays opposition to the nation, regardless of how treacherous and malign, doesn't cause even a blip of excitement in the ruling class.

If the nation is under traditionalist rule, I mean to say. If you so much as look sideways at the leftist monstrosities that are Sweden or Britain, then it's lobotomies, probes, and the chemicals for you.
