Liberal Racism:Donny Deutsch Smears FL Republican Senate Candidate Marco Rubio With Racially Charged Attack, “He’s a ‘Coconut”
So it’s the Republican and Tea Party members that are racists, eh?
While appearing on the Joy Behar Show, MSNBC and CNBC contributor Donny Deutsch used racially charged language calling Republican senatorial candidate Marco Rubio as a “coconut.”
Just a quick FYI and primer from Michelle Malkin for those of you unfamiliar with the “coconut” insult:
If you are a conservative with Latino/Pacific Islander/Filipino heritage, you’re a coconut (brown on the outside, white on the inside).
From News Busuters, the definition of what a coconut is as defines by others in the know.
… both the New York Times and Urban Dictionary define as a “person who is tan on the outside” and “white on the inside.” Rubio is the son of Cuban exiles.
Deutsch employed the derogatory term while hitting politicians with no experience. He noted the success of such candidates and derided, “…You almost need that blank piece of paper. That’s the new model. Like, you know, this coconut Rubio down in Florida.”
UPDATE: 2010-02-23 18:20 Deutsch responded on his Twitter page: “I said ‘coconut’ meaning simple, goofy, bananas…wasn’t even aware it could be a racially charged word.”
Just like a typical liberal to call others racist when they might need to take a good look in the mirror. Just before acting like a racist, Deutsch accused others of being the very same.
Ironically, just seconds after calling Rubio a coconut, Deutsch lashed out against tea partiers, slamming them as racist: “No, they’re angry- they’re basically- their argument is- and I think there’s a lot of racism underneath it- is- ‘He, they, are taking your civil liberties away. They’re stomping on the Constitution. They’re telling us how many bullets we can have in our guns.’”
Just more typical nonsense from the do as we say, forget what we do liberals. Imagine, just imagine if a Republican made such a comment. The LEFT just cannot stand that Conservative Mark Rubio is destroying RINO Charlie Christ in the polls for the Republican Primary for US Senator in Florida.
