Following a series of race card claims by the political arm of the black liberal establishment, The Washington Post has adopted the same false narrative in defense of UN Ambassador Susan Rice.
Rice is being criticized by conservatives because her television interviews prior to the presidential election misled the American people on the cause of the Benghazi tragedy.
In the November 22 editorial, The Washington Post concludes that race was a motivating factor in a letter from 97 Republican members of the House of Representatives to President Obama urging him not to nominate Rice for Secretary of State.
“Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can’t know their hearts. What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy.”
In addition to The Washington Post, Black Entertainment Television’s website posted an aggressively worded commentary, “If Republicans Declare War on Susan Rice, They’ll Have It,” that will help maintain the gap between blacks and Republicans.
The Susan Rice controversy is a classic example of how progressives use the race card as a grand distraction to try to thwart an investigation of the Benghazi attacks and alienate the black community from the GOP.
