The above title pretty-much says it all, but what a load of crap this guy can spin. The Democrats are hypocrites for being against the Dubai deal because being against the Dubai deal is racist. Better yet: what Krauthammer is really saying is that it’s racist to oppose the Dubai deal, and that’s OK for Republicans, but not for Democrats:
Democrats loudly denounce any thought of racial profiling. But when that same Arab, attired in business suit and MBA, and with a good record running ports in 15 countries, buys P&O, Democrats howl at the very idea of allowing Arabs to run our ports. (Republicans are howling too, but they don’t grandstand on the issue of racial profiling.)
Don’t miss the full glory of this statement: because the Republicans have never had enough cultural intonation to be against racial profiling, Democrats are just awful Cadilac Liberals opposing the down-trodden Arab.
And PS: the DP World top brass are almost exclusively American, with the possible exception of the CEO. . . and even he has a University of Arizona, Tucson degree.
