Boxer is Bonkers
Posted by Cornell Insider Staff on July 18, 2009
Here is the now famous video of the head of the Black Chamber of Commerce accusing California Senator Barbara Boxer of making unnecessary racial comparisons. Watch the whole thing:
When I watched this the first time, I really thought that the gentlemen was making a big fuss about nothing. So what? If he came to debate an issue related to the Black Chamber of Commerce, what’s wrong with Boxer citing the NAACP in the context of the discussion?
It turns out that the committee was there to discuss the energy bill going through Congress. The gentleman was there to argue that the bill would not create California jobs, and Boxer basically started citing different black organizations that disagreed with his point. It would be the same situation if I came to Congress to testify on global warming and was presented a list of prominent Russian scientists who disagreed with my claim. What was Boxer trying to get at here?
