It’s the oldest play in the Democrat handbook. Any time they feel threatened by an opponent, they fall back on the old reliable “you are a racist” routine. They never have evidence; every time they level the charge it is a flat-out lie. They can’t prove racism, but they know they don’t even have to try. Just the accusation is enough to turn low-information dumb-bots against their Republican opponents.
Isn’t it odd, then, that one of the left’s very own “totally-in-the-tank” newspapers, the Denver Post, has no shame for their public naked discrimination against African-American candidates for office in Colorado?
Derrick Wilburn is vice chair of the Colorado Republican Party, and an African-American. He won his post in March of 2015, and after a year and a half of being “the invisible man” to the Denver Post, he finally popped a vessel.
In an op-ed in the Colorado Springs Gazette, Wilburn wrote:
The Denver Post is the largest newspaper in our state. I was elected to my current position as state GOP vice chairman in March 2015. A black American elected in a landslide by a 98 percent white constituency. Not once in the year and a half I’ve held this office has the Post contacted me for a story, sought me for a quote, placed my picture in their pages or so much as bothered to ask a question. I’m the sitting party vice chair, and as far as the Post is concerned, I don’t exist.
And Wilburn is not the only freeze-out victim.
Darryl Glenn is as solid a candidate for US Senate as you will find anywhere. 21 years of military service. Budget and management guru. Attorney. PTA president. Church leader. Champion weight-lifter. Proud parent. African-American. So how is it the Denver Post completely ignores his stellar candidacy, save for occasionally trashing his integrity because he doesn’t believe in murdering babies?
Colorado should also be extremely proud of Casper Stockham, candidate for US House District 1. 14 years of military service. Business management expert. Author, speaker and radio host. Devout Christian. Common sensible and down-to-earth. African American. Nothing from the Denver Post about Stockham except crickets chirping.
Whenever somebody on the right side of the political fence criticizes Barack Obama’s abject policy failures, they are vilified as racists. Obama’s followers believe their man is so perfect that only a racist could utter a discouraging word. But the same standard doesn’t apply to Colorado’s own Wilburn, Glenn, or Stockham. Because they are conservatives, and the left has no tolerance for African-Americans who stray off the Democrat plantation.
And the Post apparently has no tolerance for readers who object to their duplicity, either. When blogger Pete Boddie from Littleton questioned Denver Post lead writer Joey Bunch about his paper’s treatment of African-American candidates, he got this terse reply: “drop dead”. Doesn’t look like you are ready for that Pulitzer this year, Joey.
Meanwhile the Post’s circulation tumbles like an April avalanche in Aspen, and all the hard-left editors at the few papers still clinging to life around our once-great nation slap each other on the back, never wondering why the public doesn’t trust them any more.

When the change was made uptown and the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the city, all the little pretties raise their hands
I’m gonna sit back right easy and laugh
When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half
With the Tenth Avenue freeze-out
