Atrocious People, Part II: Harry Reid Thinks Pandering To Political Correctness Is More Important Than Upholding Honesty And Integrity

This is Harry Reid, but I just can't stand looking at the man any more, so I put a bag over his head....

This is Harry Reid, but I just can’t stand looking at the man any more, so I put a bag over his head….

[It’s Atrocious People Day at Ethics Alarms, and no Atrocious People Day would be complete without Harry Reid.]

“I find it stunning that the National Football League is more concerned about how much air is in a football than with a racist franchise name that denigrates Native Americans across the country,” Senator Harry Reid said on the floor of the Senate.

Well, of course he does! After all, Harry thinks that cheating is great, if it works! He justified falsely accusing Mitt Romney of not paying taxes, confident in the laziness and gullibility of the American voter. “Why, he’s the Senate Majority Leader, Mildred! He wouldn’t lie to us!” And, as Harry pointed out, it worked—Romney lost, so Harry did the right thing. No wonder Reid doesn’t see why the NFL would care about Tom Brady pressuring low-level employees so they would help him cheat by secretly make the footballs easier for him to throw in a play-off game—after all, it worked! He won! Brady lied about it? So what? Reid approves of that, too. The statement above is a typical Reid lie: the NFL showed that it was concerned about cheating, lying, sportsmanship and integrity, not “the air in a football.”

But for the lawful owner of a business to be able to keep its 80 year old name that an entire city has cheered, worn on jerseys and caps, and made part of its culture, even though professional political correctness profiteers claimed to be grievously offended by the name because they wanted to be? That, to Harry Reid, is outrageous.*

What isn’t outrageous to Harry—just fair-minded, ethical Americans who understand such concepts as why it is wrong for the government to chill individual rights and the dangers of abuse of power by elected official—-is a U.S. Senator using his high office to attack and harass private citizens who are doing noting illegal, and only doing wrong according to Harry Reid’s Bizarro World values.

Yes, his victims include the Koch brothers.

I’ve noted this before, but it continues to give me nightmares: Imagine…This vile, warped, cynical, disgrace of a public servant has been employing those same un-American, corrupting values to steer public policy in this country for decades, and has been one of the three most powerful and influential leaders of the Democratic Party since 2007. How much better might this nation be had he chosen a profession more appropriate to his character…like, say, mob hit man?

Reid is beneath contempt. Anyone who still voted for him after he revealed his Stygian values through  his words and deeds is complicit in the ethics rot he has inflicted on our government and our culture, and the party that has allowed someone so irredeemable to steer its path and the nation’s legislative agenda has a lot of explaining to do.

Oh, wait—Harry has his  party’s defense gift-wrapped, and stamped with the approval and motto of Machiavelli, Stalin, Al Capone, the Clintons  and the New England Patriots.

“The ends justify the means.”

 * I fervently wish that a sincere, political correctness-addled African-American groups would begin agitating for the NAACP to remove “colored people” from its name on the grounds that the term is offensive to blacks.

  1. “* I fervently wish that a sincere, political correctness-addled African-American groups would begin agitating for the NAACP to remove “colored people” from its name on the grounds that the term is offensive to blacks.”

    Me to, then they could change ‘colored people’ to ‘African Americans’ and be NAAAA

    • Except that Sen. Geary had the good taste to hide being a complete prick on the theory that Nevadans wouldn’t vote for him if he made his true character apparent. Harry proved that Geary’s opinion of his electorate was far too high.

  2. “* I fervently wish that a sincere, political correctness-addled African-American groups would begin agitating for the NAACP to remove “colored people” from its name on the grounds that the term is offensive to blacks.”

    I think this whole thing is just a problem of cultural misunderstanding and insensitivity to whites. I mean, when a school named their team the “Fighting Whites” (also called the Fighting Whities), white people didn’t protest, didn’t threaten lawsuits, didn’t firebomb, and didn’t shoot any of the people involved. Instead, the team became so popular that their T-shirt sales allowed them to donate at least $180,000 to minority scholarships. This shows that these team names are not borne of hatred and disgust and the people that think so just need to embrace diversity and take some sensitivity training. ;’)

    • That’s the first I heard of that one, Michael. Maybe the entire college should adopt it! That would throw Hickenlooper for a loop. Maybe Harry Reed, too. What does it say for the Senate Democrats that they’ve been willingly led by men like Ted Kennedy and Harry Reed; back to back. Evil leadership on one side of the aisle and bumbling wimps on the other.
