Shhh! Don’t confuse Reid with history while he’s playing the race card!

It was the GOP that fought slavery and the Democrat Party that battled to preserve it.

It’s the Democrat Party, not the GOP, that boasts an ex-Klansman among its senior leaders.

But don’t confuse Harry Reid with history while he invokes slavery to lambaste the GOP for opposing the government-run health care takeover.

Details? Bah!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took his GOP-blasting rhetoric to a new level Monday, comparing Republicans who oppose health care reform to lawmakers who clung to the institution of slavery more than a century ago.

The Nevada Democrat, in a sweeping set of accusations on the Senate floor, also compared health care foes to those who opposed women’s suffrage and the civil rights movement — even though it was Sen. Strom Thurmond, then a Democrat, who unsuccessfully tried to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and it was Republicans who led the charge against slavery.

Senate Republicans on Monday called Reid’s comments “offensive” and “unbelievable.”

Not unbelievable, of course. The Left has been playing the race card on Demcare from the start. Jesse Jackson. Jimmy Carter. Harry Reid.

Conservative producer/director Ray Griggs takes the smear meme head on:

Crying “RAAAAAACIST:” Always the first and last refuge of left-wing scoundrels.

Reap what you sow, Harry. The latest from Nevada:

Not great news for Harry Reid: A majority of Nevadans now disapprove of Democrats’ plans for healthcare reform, according to a Las Vegas Journal-Review poll.

Fifty-three percent of those polled say they do not support reform legislation, wich 39% in favor. In October, 49% opposed it and 40% favored it.

I’m sure Nevadans appreciate being likened to slavemasters, too.
