• Surprise: DNC Won’t Denounce Race-baiting For Votes

    Last week North Carolina congressional candidate Alma Adams called Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan’s opponent Thom Tillis an “Uncle Tom.”

    Even worse is the pro-Harry Reid Super PAC run by former Reid aides that is running a radio ad in North Carolina that blames GOP Senate candidate Thom Tillis for “the shooting death of Trayvon Martin,” the Florida teenager who was shot and killed in 2012.

    And today a senior Democratic National Committee official repeatedly refused to admit that the Democrats’ use of the race card is beyond despicable.

    MSNBC, of all places, grilled Mo Elleithee, the DNC’s communications director, about a Georgia Democratic Party flyer that warns voters there will be “another Ferguson” if they fail to vote next Tuesday.  “Is using the issue of race like that, to drive turnout — is that appropriate?” MSNBC host Craig Melvin asked.

    The DNC spokesmen spewed some line about “outreach in the African-American community,” before Melvin pressed him to answer the question directly.

    Elleithee responded “do I think it’s appropriate to constantly remind people how important it is to vote, how important it is to make your voice heard, how important it is to remain engaged?”

    “But can you not do that without trotting out the images of dead black teenagers?” Melvin asked.

    Our national nightmare will be over when voters head to the polls in five days.
