This is racist, that is racist and you’re a racist! Not a supporter of President Obama? Racist. Republican? Racist. Founding Fathers? American values? ‘Birther’? Libertarian? Racist. Think Obama plays enough golf to qualify for the PGA? Racist. Wait…what? Seriously?
Seriously. MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell said that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was racist because he suggested President Obama should try for the PGA since he played so much golf. Apparently, in ‘Republican Code’, that meant McConnell was trying to associate Obama with Tiger Woods and ‘that lifestyle’! Where do they come up with this garbage? In another instance, MSNBC host Chris ‘I felt this thrill going up my leg’ Matthews claimed that using the word ‘Chicago’ was racist! There’s also ‘code words’ like “food stamp president”, “Closed borders” and “poor work ethic”. Remember the accusations of racism when Attorney General Eric Holder was asked about Fast and Furious?
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Cynthia Tucker wrote, “There isn’t a political strategist, political scientist or political journalist who doesn’t know that ‘welfare’ is code for ‘poor black people.'” Where do these outlandish claims come from? Groups like the Obama Campaign and Obama’s ‘Truth Team’ know these techniques work in their favor. Liberals are using race as a dividing point more often than ever in recent history. For people who actually face racism in their lives, there is nothing more polarizing. What better way to ensure the support of minorities?
