Accused of unmasking names in government surveillance and lying about it, Susan Rice plays race victim and persecuted woman.
When Susan Rice plays race and gender victim to get out from under her abuse of authority, one has to wonder if she isn’t revealing her sense of entitlement. Does she think that being African American and Female give her the right to break the rules, lie, and use government power for partisan purposes? Given the double standard operating in how Republicans and Democrats are treated, such thinking might explain a lot.
Fox News reports, “Susan Rice suggests race, gender bias linked to ‘unmasking’ backlash.”
In an interview with journalist Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine, Rice reportedly questioned the criticism she’s faced dating back to the Benghazi controversy.
“Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” she asked.
Tomasky noted in the piece that Carney “isn’t an African-American woman, of course” and apparently asked Rice whether that is the key factor. Rice, in response, left the door open:
“I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.”
