Democrats always try and make Republicans look racist, but perhaps they should look in the mirror.
However, Florida Democratic Party Chairman Stephen Bittel recently made a racist remark and was let off the hook for it.
On Saturday, Bittell hosted a fundraiser where he decided to skip over State Senator Oscar Braynon of Miami Gardens and Representative Janet Cruz of Tampa in order to introduce former Vice President Joe Biden.
Both Braynon and Cruz are both African-American and complained that Bittel skipped over them because of race.
Bittel later responded, calling them “children” and “these black lawmakers.”
“They’re like children, these black lawmakers. They just don’t get it,” Bittel reportedly said. Bittel also claimed that Braynon was acting like “a 3-year-old” when he complained about being skipped over.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The Miami Herald noted that while several lawmakers were outraged over these remarks, Bittel isn’t going to lose his job — at least for now.
So a Democrat makes a racist statemnt, and is rewarded by being allowed to keep his job. If a Republican said anything like this, the liberal media would undoubtedly be in an uproar, demanding his immediate dismissal.
Politico noted that Bittel didn’t make it any better by claiming the African-American lawmakers were “playing the race card,” but he eventually did apologize for his remark.
Surprise, surprise. When the Democrats act racist, they try and hide the story or call it a simple misunderstanding, but when it happens to a Republican, they demand an immediate resignation.
