The Dems willingness to play the race card is getting so absurd that at least one demanded that Romney and Republicans cancel the debate in Myrtle Beach this Monday:
South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Dick Harpootlian insinuated that Republican presidential candidates are campaigning on racist platforms, and indicted Mitt Romney with being too "meek" to take positions on racial issues, saying that he should also condemn the upcoming Republican debate, scheduled for Martin Luther King, Jr. DayDemocrats see Ku Klux Klan ghosts hiding around every corner. But if history is any guide, it's their fellow Democrats wearing the white sheets (PBS: "the Klan quickly became a terrorist organization in service of the Democratic Party.")
"The Republicans are scheduling their debate [for] Monday, Martin Luther King Day, without any regard, whatsoever, [for] the civil rights issues that this state has faced," said Harpootlian during an appearance on Al Sharpton's Politics Nation. "Where's Mitt Romney on all this . . . where is he on these racial issues?" he asked later in the show.
Following that line of attack, he argued that Romney should condemn the debate. "[Romney should say] 'no, I don't want to have a debate on Martin Luther King's birthday, that's a day we need to celebrate a great American leader,'" Harpootlian said.
Racism and the race card are alive and well in their birthplace: The Democrat Party!
