Amazing news today that a schizo moonbat has started blabbering to reporters at a civil rights march. Who was the moonbat? One Harry Belafonte:
Atlanta (CNSNews.com) – Celebrity activist Harry Belafonte referred to prominent African-American officials in the Bush administration as “black tyrants” at a weekend march, and he also compared the administration to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
Belafonte, a featured speaker at Saturday’s march in Atlanta commemorating the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, previously ignited a political controversy in 2002 when he likened then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to a “house slave.”
At Saturday’s civil rights march, Belafonte said the Bush administration has been “rather dismal” for the lives of black Americans. The march, which featured prominent civil rights groups and labor union representatives, was intended to drum up support for extending and strengthening the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Belafonte used a Hitler analogy when asked about what impact prominent blacks such as former Secretary of State Powell and current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had on the Bush administration’s relations with minorities.
“Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich. Color does not necessarily denote quality, content or value,” Belafonte said in an exclusive interview with Cybercast News Service.
“[If] a black is a tyrant, he is first and foremost a tyrant, then he incidentally is black. Bush is a tyrant and if he gathers around him black tyrants, they all have to be treated as they are being treated,” he added. See Video
When asked specifically who was a “black tyrant” in the Bush administration, Belafonte responded to this reporter, “You.” When this reporter noted that he was a Caucasian and attempted to ask another question, Belafonte abruptly ended the interview by saying, “That’s it.”
Whoa, this guy is one smart cookie huh? Hitler had Jews high up in their hierarchy of the Third Reich? WTF is he smoking.
This is one guy who just hates…and I mean hates any black person who isn’t a leftwing moonbat. It’s no longer that they are uncle tom’s but now they are nazi’s to this jerkoff. Which party has now become the party of intolerance?
Moonbat Central talks a bit about this wacko’s recent history:
Belafonte showed no reluctance to share the stage with tyrants in Castro?s Cuba. At a June 2000 rally in Havana honoring the American Soviet spies Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, observers reported Belfonte shedding tears as he condemned America?s racist history. Speakers extolled Cuba “as an example of keeping the principles the Rosenbergs fought and died for alive.”
Ken over at The Poliburo Diktat summarized what Harry has become:
Harry Belafonte can run around calling Colin Powell and Condi Rice ?house slaves? and ?tyrants,? but people seem afraid to call the man what he is: an over-rated, sanctimonious prick who at some point got the idea that he was an intellectual and a statesman. Where he got the idea he was anything more than an aging actor is beyond me.
He also goes on to detail a encounter he had with Harry:
I had the distinct honor of seeing Belafonte treat reporters like this first hand at a fundraising event for the Apollo earlier this summer. I was loitering with the rest of the media at the red carpet. Belafonte deigned to deal with the first reporter? someone from BET. Then he talked to the second, but was clearly miffed that she was from BET as well and was therefore wasting his time. (?Why can?t these troublesome people get on the same page,? his attitude seemed to say.)
But his true colors, as they were, came out when the fellow from the New York Times, the only white guy in the line, tried to ask him a question.
Belafonte looked down his nose, looked at the guy like he was a turd on the bottom of a new shoe, and said, ?And who are you??
The reporter explained and Belfonte gave him another smirk, seemed like he was going to walk away, and then launched into what seemed to be a long, off-the-top-of-his-head lecture?and that?s what it was?about the black community. He didn?t say anything insulting in that particular spiel but it was clear that he was lecturing the dim-witted racist white boy.
Who really is the racist here?
Dane over at Dane Bramage has a few words about this idiot:
Liberal black leadership suffers the same disease as all liberal leadership in this country. They come out against everything and they don’t stand for anything. They called on us as blacks to improve ourselves, to make the best of every opportunity. They made sacrifices so that we could have some opportunities that we may not have gotten otherwise. So what happens when black achieve and accel? They are tyrants. The U.S.’s first African American Secretary of State is a tyrant because he was appointed by a Republican.
The day just got even better at this star studded event with the likes of a daytime Judge wannabe who went on another tirade:
Atlanta (CNSNews.com) – A featured speaker at Saturday’s civil rights march in Atlanta said the Bush administration and Republican Party leaders are “thieves” who “need to be locked up” for stealing the past two presidential elections and presiding over federal budget deficits and the war in Iraq.
“They all need to be locked up because they are all criminals and they are all thieves,” said Judge Greg Mathis, the star of the syndicated television program “The Judge Mathis Show.”
…The march was sponsored by the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and included leaders from the National Urban League, The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the NAACP, and the AFL-CIO.
…”[The] Supreme Court was an accomplice to the biggest election crime in history in 2000. And I call it a crime because indeed that is exactly what it was,” he said to applause.
The Bush administration was equated with past policies of slavery and segregation and labeled “the enemy of our (black America’s) progress” by Mathis.
“They shot and missed when they enslaved, segregated and oppressed our people. They shot and missed when they stole the past two presidential elections. They shot and missed when they denied our right to vote,” Mathis said.
Of course you can’t have a moonbat party without inviting Nancy Pelosi:
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California appeared at the march and noted that minorities may not have had full voting rights in the last two presidential elections.
“Some changes have to be made so we don’t have a repeat of 2000 and 2004 where there was intimidation and discrepancies at the polls,” Pelosi told Cybercast News Service during the voting rights march.
“In the state of Ohio, where they had fewer voting booths and long lines in minority neighborhoods and no lines and many voting booths in white neighborhoods, that the balance is not what it should have been,” she added.
Or her favorite slumber party pals, Barbara Lee & Maxine Waters:
U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) echoed the accusation of many at the march that Bush was an illegitimate president.
“The last two elections were stolen. They were stolen and so we will not rest until we reclaim our democracy and this is what today is all about,” Lee told the crowd gathered.
Lee also called the war in Iraq “unnecessary, immoral and illegal” and added “our nation was lied to in order to justify this invasion and occupation.”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made it clear who the marchers were directing their anger at on Saturday.
“We are here to take on President Bush, [Vice President] Dick Cheney. We are here to take on [House Majority Leader] Tom DeLay. We are here to take on the new appointee to the Supreme Court, John Roberts,” Waters said from the podium to cheers from the crowd.
Then Charles Rangel had to chime in of course:
The Bush administration was also targeted by Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), who declared that the president’s “record against human rights, civil rights, economic rights, is absolutely terrible.”
But the funniest thing about this event….Bush has said he supports the full reauthorization of the bill. Guess they didn’t get the letter…..
Another bit that was funny was the ongoing “the election was stolen…voter intimidation…blah blah blah” statements. Funny how the American Center for Voting Rights report showed a ton of intimidation on the Democrat’s side, not much on the Republican’s side. Hmmm, surprise surprise:

How you lib’s can look up to the likes of these and still look at yourself in the mirror every morning is beyond me.
