Hysterical lefties claim Susan Rice is a casualty of sexism, racism
— mifa randolph (@mifarandolph) December 13, 2012
As Twitchy reported, Susan Rice has apparently withdrawn her name from consideration for Secretary of State. Despite the litany of legitimate reasons Republicans and conservatives had to oppose her nomination, lefty pearl-clutchers are seizing on sexism and racism as the cause for her withdrawal:
Disappointed Amb. Rice, such a well qualified woman of color, would be denied a fair shot @ Sec State based on unfounded political attacks.

The boys network is alive and well. The war on qualified women continues here in Washington, DC. I am not going to stand down.

Looks like the intersection of racism and sexism to me. #Rice.

There is a major theme in the attacks against Rice, the President, and holder.#Racism

Lets pretend Ambassador Rice isn’t facing racism and sexism. Partisanship issues alone. I’m so sick.

I feel bad for America that 2 racist white congressmen can vilify an accomplished public servant, Susan Rice, & stampede the public process

Unbelievable. Is it so beyond liberal comprehension that Rice buckled because of her enormous baggage and shameful conduct with regard to Benghazi, or that she is falling on her sword for The One? If these race-mongerers would stop foaming at the mouth long enough to take off their gender and race goggles and have a look at reality, they might realize just how asinine their outrage truly is.
Perhaps ask about Condi & Colin P RT @buzzfeedandrew: Michael Eric Dyson saying on MSNBC that opposition to Susan Rice was because of racism
— Matt Mackowiak (@MattMackowiak) December 13, 2012
I’m sure Susan Rice’s withdrawal was due to racism because the GOP would never confirm a black woman Secretary of State named Rice.
— Rick Moore (@RickMoore) December 13, 2012
ICYMI: Remember when Republicans accused the 13 Dems who opposed Condi Rice of racism? Yeah, me neither.

Liberals: Blacks can be scrutinized because of their RECORD, not skin color. I know it’s hard for you to grasp, but you’ll get it eventually

That is genuine colorblindness. Accountability is empowering. And until the Left figures that out, we’d better get used to identity politics.
