Colin Powell: My Party is full of Racists. So Powell IS a Democrat?

This is the Republican who endorsed Barack Obama twice and publicly stated he voted for him twice. No Republican would vote for the policies of Barack Obama and the Modern Democrat Party.

powell_endorsementMy party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people — not all of them, but most of them — who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that’s despicable.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday and had some strong words for his fellow GOP members: “The Republican party needs to take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country has changed.” Powell criticized the GOP of today for everything from their views on climate change to taxes. Most importantly? The party has a “dark vein of intolerance” running through it and “if they don’t change” along with America’s changing demographics, “they are going to be in trouble.”

    On Oct 26 2012, a video was posted with Retired Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson saying these words …” My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people — not all of them, but most of them — who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, ….”  So why does it appear now they are being attributed to Colin Powell???
