Grasping a straws and closing a loop
“Condoleezza Rice, the most senior black woman in the Bush administration, has levelled a charge of racism against critics of the US drive to bring Western freedoms to the Middle East.”
That’s the grasping at straws part.
But wait. There’s more.
Did this former Chevron (San Francisco) employee got this new rhetorical tactic from San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, who has managed to turn every scandal there into an issue of race?
SF Election fraud? White people don’t want blacks to have an expensive, disruptive, mafia owned football stadium in their overtaxed, under served neighborhood.
Off duty cops robbing and beating citizens? White people who complain don’t want a black police chief to succeed.
Rice has a lot of deep official SF connections besides Chevron: Charles Schwab, San Francisco Symphony Board of Governors, Transamerica Corporation, KQED.
Trivia question: What mayor of a major west coast city claimed just hours after 9-11 that he’d been warned not to fly the week of 9-11 by what he described as his ‘airport security.’ None other than Willie Brown!
Think about it. Where else on earth would Brown get the message not to fly on a particular day? The airport says there was no advisory in place.
Note that when asked, Brown clammed up as to the source. Why?
Turns out my hunch ain’t a news flash. Just the sussing out of a significant, but very obscure piece of 9-11 trivia.
On May 17, 2002, Pacifica Radio reported that Rice was the source of the call to Brown. See side bar: http://www.fpp.co.uk/online/02/05/Bush_knew2.html
So in case you missed it:
THE ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT FOR NATIONAL SECURITY AFFAIRS CONDOLEEZZA RICE CALLED A FRIEND THE DAY BEFORE SEPTEMBER 11TH AND TOLD HIM TO STAY OUT OF THE AIR THAT WEEK
San Francisco historians take note. The city elite found yet another way to be involved first hand in the reaming of the Republic.
