Eyeless in Gaza or Clueless in Texas? I Report, You Decide!

In a conversation regarding a photo of the founder of the Texas Tea party holding up a sign with blatant racist references, a man who bitterly denied ever seeing anything racist in the tea party, I added: 

Susan, what constantly amazes me is how totally tone deaf Republicans are. They say the most blatantly egregious and racist things, and then are genuinely offended when someone calls them on it. They say that we are playing the race card when we point out their shocking behavior.

Well, as the Bible doesn't say, “None (are) so blind as those that will not see.” 

   --  Matthew Henry (1662-1714).  English Presbyterian minister and writer, used in his Commentary on the Whole Bible (1708).  Contrary to common belief, this is not a quote from the Bible. It was probably inspired by Bible verses, possibly Matthew 13:13 (“Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing see not…”) or Jeremiah 5:21 (“Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not…”).
