Blacklash released in paperback as Dr. Ben Carson attacked by Johns Hopkins leftists.

If America were a bus, Deneen Borelli would be the new Rosa Parks.

Borelli is the very model of a human being, an African American and a woman who is just plain tired up to here at all of the back of the bus treatment dished by liberals — black and white alike — to conservatives who happen to be black.

Ms. Borelli has in a figurative sense, as Rosa Parks did in the original and literal sense, sat down in a seat reserved for liberals at the front of the American bus. She won’t get up, she isn’t moving and she most assuredly doesn’t care that liberals don’t like the fact.

And most assuredly, they don’t.

In her autobiography, My Story, Parks wrote this of her famous refusal to give up her seat to a white rider because of her race:

People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.

Tired of giving in.

It is a perfect description of Deneeen Borelli and her refusal to give up her seat on the American bus to those who, like the racist Montgomery bus driver of so long ago demanded of Rosa Parks:

“Well, if you don’t stand up, I’m going to have to call the police and have you arrested.”

Today, Rosa Parks wouldn’t be arrested. In the 21st century Rosa Parks would be threatened and then smeared from one end of the Internet to the other.

Which is precisely what has happened to Borelli.

Borelli opens her book Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation, just re-released in paperback form, noting exactly the kinds of things that are said about her in liberal land.

A warning here: the following quotes are directly from Borelli herself, the raw language used about her printed verbatim in the opening of her book.

One of the first links that comes up when you Google my name is an article entitled the “Black Tea-Bagging: ‘Nigger’ Deneen Borelli Please!”

Note that it seems the author believed it was not good enough to just identify me as black — I am a black and a nigger. The black is to let you know my skin color because apparently that will tell you something relevant about me. The second part, the nigger part, is to underscore the author’s belief that I am something less than a white person. Not an American, not a freethinker, but subhuman: a nigger, because my racial and ethnic ancestry is broadly associated with slavery, degradation, and abusive treatment.
