Gross. Colin Powell Says GOP “Has Dark Vein of Intolerance” (Video)

For some odd reason “Republican” Colin Powell supported the most radical far left president in history in 2012. Now he’s lashing out at Republicans who oppose Obama.

Republican Colin Powell told “Meet the Press” today that the GOP has a “dark vein of intolerance.” As an example he pointed out that former Governor John Sununu called Obama lazy. He also attacked Sarah Palin.

The Politico reported:

While continuing to identify as a Republican, former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday criticized the GOP for a series of racist attacks against President Barack Obama.

“There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities.”

Powell, who endorsed Obama, pointed to a number of statements that were directed at Obama as evidence that there is still racism within the party.

“When I see a former governor say that the president is ‘shuckin’ and jivin’.’ That’s a racial-era slave term,” Powell said, referring to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin using the term to describe Obama’s response to the attacks in Libya.

Powell also pointed to former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, who was an aggressive surrogate for Mitt Romney, for calling Obama “lazy” after the first debate during the campaign.

For the record… New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney have both used the term “shuck and jive” but were given a pass by the liberal media.

More… Barack Obama thinks he’s lazy too.

    Other that slapping the name ‘Republican’ on himself, what Republican values does Powell actually have?

  • Sam Stone

    The TRUE racists like Powell see race in everything. Skin color before color of character.

  • bigkahuna

    What a scumbag. He had massive republican support after gulf war and beyond, So have Bobby Jindel, Sen. Scott, Alan West, and other black conservatives.

    He however claims to be republican yet supports a black candidate soley because his skin color because there is no way a republican can call himself one and vote for that waste of sperm Obama. He attacks republicans but you never hear him attack dummasscrats.

    He is the racist. I am sick of morons telling us we are racist for using words. I say actions are racists…kinda like 95% support by the black community of a president who screws them daily and “enslaves them in welfare and unemployment and debt burdens on their kids and grandkids and never hold him accountable for his actions or innaction or lies or failures or anything for that matter.

    Screw you Colinoscopy


    Powell is a Republican like Reagan was a Communist.

    What really frustrates me is the total lack of historical perspective a General has about his own country. He is a politician and not a soldier.

    I caught part of Powell’s Beat the Press interview this morning. Most everything out of his mouth came from the Media Matters’ list of talking points. The only part of the discussion during which he strayed from the Demonrat script was when the interviewing libtard asked him if invading Iraq was a mistake and Powell, for the bazillionth time, told of how the decision was based upon CIA intel provided, that congress overwhelmingly voted for war and that President and Commander In Chief George W Bush relayed the order to the military. The rest of what I heard him say could have come from the mouth of any Washington Demonrat.

    Correction: He supported the most radical far left BLACK president.

  • OxyCon

    If Powell were a Republican President, he would get a real lesson in racism from the Liberals who would attack him as an Uncle Tom sellout.

  • DecentAmerican

    Shuck and jive? That was also the name if a popular song a few years ago from Gap commercials. This is a classic racist liberal tactic…..have no logical defense, cry racism.

    So racist Powell,many comments on the racist liberal attacks on Cain and West and Clarence Thomas? Or how about the Dem founded KKK? Or how about YOU and Rice being the first black Secs of State in history, selected by REPUB Presidents?

    Show some gratitude. You racist liberal moron. It always goes to show you, you develop a liberal mindset like POWELL, and you become a racist.

  • DecentAmerican

    And…. “lazy”… what other word are we supposed to use to describe someone who rather play golf than do his job? That’s not “tired”…that’s lazy! Kindly tell us, racist liberals, what words are we allowed to use?

    Stupid racist liberals…..their true colors always show.

  • Gravelyvoice Jim

    We have to wonder when high-minded liberals will start to call out Obama’s major financial backers for committing racist “crimes”. Romney saying “shuckin’ and jivin'” pales in comparison to the racist, misogynist lyrics of Obama’s favorite fundraiser – the the hip-hopping, gangsta’-rapping, thug wannabe Jay-Z who have turned the beautiful soul and R&B love sonnets from Mowtown in the 60s and 70s into vulgar, degrading minstrel shows of filth.

    Here’s Jay-Z’s degrading cover of the Four Tops beautiful hit love song “Ain’t No Woman”


    When will Powell denounce this garbage?

    One has to wonder: Did Obama and his daughters “shuck and jive” to this racist minstrel show tune during Jay-Z’s fundraising gala for his campaign last year?

    Maybe we should all forward this song to David “High Capacity Mag” Gregory as an example of what kind of music Obama’s SUPPORTERS really DO “shuck and jive” to.

  • jorgen

    Yeah, there might be a slight bias against RINOs who voted for Obama.

  • Big Al

    How can he still call himself a republican. In 2008 the party nominated just the kind of moderately inclined republican he purports to want, a bonafide war hero to boot, and Powell turned his back on him purely because of race. Disgraceful. This man should be called out for using the republican label, which he only uses to increase his own marketability.

  • AnnaS

    He still calls himself a Republican so Democrats can say–“Look at Powell, he is a Republican and believes the right way.” He is doing it on purpose!

  • Patty

    Says GOP? OMG, this man makes me sick. And DARK VEIN, OH DEAR!!!


    Colin Powell is A Racist. Yah, I Said It.

    So, Colin Powell proved today he’s a racist…by endorsing a candidate for president just because of that person’s skin color.

    Powell backed Obama in 2008, but prior to today he could have just claimed he was caught up in all that hysteria of “The Hopeychange Fad” that swept the nation four years ago and rendered even adult males like him nothing more than pre-teen girls squealing with hormonal delight at a New Kids on the Block concert while clutching their Cabbage Patch Kids and Beanie Babies for dear life (because they will be worth so much to collectors some day!).

    Powell said in his 2012 endorsement that he backs Obama because Bathhouse Barry “didn’t get us into any new wars recently”, but that completely forgets about the overthrow of Quadaffi in Libya and what’s happening in Syria now as well.

    Then, Powell went on to say that Obama should remain president because, uh, well, uhhm, er…”there hasn’t been a terrorist attack or anything lately, I guess”. Which, of course, completely forgets about the rape and murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other deaths at our consulate in Benghazi.

    Ed Morrissey at HotAir thinks the reason Powell behaves this way is because he’s still smarting that he ruined his reputation and humiliated himself with that UN performance (which really did make him a laughing stock)…so to get back at the GOP he does things like this. I like Morrissey but disagree with him here because I think he’s purposefully not stating the obvious: which is that Colin Powell is a racist.

    it’s hilarious to me that he gave up the chance to be the first black President when he could have run in 1996 and he probably would have beaten Bill Clinton because black Democrats would have indeed crossed the aisle and voted for him out of race-pride. I think Powell will always resent his timidity and decision not to enter that race; to this day he blames his wife Alma, saying she and his children urged him not to run for President because he just couldn’t handle the job and wouldn’t do well in a campaign. I think little baby Colin was just too afraid of embarrassing himself in a national campaign and didn’t want to risk doing anything to make himself a laughingstock…like what he did at the UN seven years later.


    There’s this thing that happens in our culture where just because someone served in the military we feel a duty to handle that person with kid gloves forever………….[……….]
