Ahhh, Racism. If you’re a Progressive/Liberal/Democrat, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Throughout the election, many media figures (I’m talking to you, MSNBC) constantly heard alleged racist ‘dog whistles’ coming from the Republicans. These claims were specious and inflammatory, yet no one else in the Main Stream Media called them out for it. Why not?
It’s because by and large, the Left has a fixation about race. And pretty much by definition, if you are totally fixated on race …you’re the racist.
Racism is one of the seven terms that the Progressives use, constantly, to stigmatize Conservatives and/or Republicans. The other six are Sexist, Intolerant, Xenophobic, Homophobic, Islamophobic, and Bigoted. Dennis Prager even coined the acronym ‘SIX HIRB’ to make them easy to remember.
But racism is their favorite. Even when race isn’t an essential part of the discussion, WHAM, they bring it up. Why?
I’ll let Zo explain in his most recent video:
Martin Luther King famously said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
For King’s dream to ever happen, we as a nation will first have to stop noticing or caring what someone’s skin color even is. And the first step toward THAT is for folks like Rob Parker to cease asking questions as transparently stupid as, “Is Robert Griffin III a brother…?”
However, I don’t want him fired; that won’t solve anything. Heck, the last thing we need is another entry to our ever-growing List of Politically Correct Speech.
No, the issue to be concerned with is why would he make such a statement in the first place? Why was it so important to him? What difference does it make to anyone that RGIII’s fiancée is white, black, or whatever? I mean, really, who cares?
C’mon, you know the answer to THAT one.
When you have NO logical argument or fact-based rebuttal, you hurl ad hominem attacks at the other person. THIS is why Liberals are so gifted at the “SIX HIRB” routine.
Don’t like President Obama’s policies? RACIST!
Support the Protection of Marriage Act? HOMOPHOBE!
Support LEGAL immigration only? XENOPHOBE!
Need I continue? These people are a joke to everyone but themselves. Including the academic putzes at far too many of our institutions of higher learning.
BTW: RG3 can only be a true black man if he dates a black woman. C’mon…YOU know that! Remember what the Rev. Jackson said about Mr. Obama?
Yes, as a matter of fact, I do.
Case in point.
Racism will only continue to be a problem if (a) people of different skin colors continue to allow themselves to be victimized by their skin color, & (b) Race-baiting, …TRUE race-baiting…, is allowed to continue.
And as we saw in the recent election, the race-baiting is coming from one side of the aisle ONLY.
If I can’t criticize you, insult you or disagree with you because our skin colors are different, then any possible discourse is hopeless.
I don’t agree with a whole swath of people who are white…and THAT’s not racism. Why is it any different with someone who happens to be black?
See??!! You’re trying to make a logical argument out of it in a thinly veiled attempt to disguise your SIX HIRB tendencies! (Insert sarcasm HERE).
It’s all a part of the Left’s “Systemic Victimization” created to isolate voting blocs of the disenfranchised. Most of whom probably never knew THEY had been a victim all of their lives until some Lefty came along and told them they were.
I have to tell you though, that the whole “seven terms” and “happens to be black” comments took me back to my favorite comedian of all time: George Carlin…..
How true. Now I don’t doubt that there are some conservatives who are racist, but racism is institutionalized on the left.
Just ask Stacey Dash when she announced she was supporting Romney, or Michelle Malkin when she objected to “The Game’s” album cover…or Tim Scott who gets called a “token” in the New York Times.
All GREAT examples, CTX. And goodness knows there are hundreds more.
Racism is a central tenet of the Leftist’s worldview.
It’s like the old saying: “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”.
Yep, they are always hearing whistles everywhere….LOL.
I’m beginning to think it’s a medical condition…?
Liberals Only, Whistle Listening, Immensely Foolish Epidemic, or as we like to call it……..
Oh, I’m gonna have to put that into a post SOMEwhere!!!
Well done, sir!
I’d like to thank Mom, and of course, The Academy……
No doubt about it. I bet Obama hears Republican’s dog whistles in sea shells in Hawaii. I always get a kick that Dems are the kings and queens of using dog whistles and euphemisms. They say Republican they mean racist, or old white bigot guy. They say education they mean Teacher unions. They say fact when they mean lie or theory. Its all code, there is probably a manual somewhere.
Alright you two! JTR! Bullright! Quit baiting me! It’s all contained in a manual for Lefties called: Liberals Invent Everything Syndrome, or, if you prefer LIES……
Technically, it’s not ‘baiting’ if the fish keeps jumping into your boat…
LOVE that acronym !!!!!
If one is not a Democrat – progressive, then they are an illegitimate black. Voting “D” legitimizes one’s race and entitles you to see and use race or racism everywhere. If not ….you are an uncle Tom and disgrace to your race,and an uneducated slave.
Completely true, BR. You can see a VERY partial list from CTX in the comments above.
Clarence Thomas is a CLASSIC example, by the way. He’d be the poster child for the Left if he was, you know, …from the Left,
But, a black Conservative as a Supreme Court justice?
Doesn’t count; worse than evil; lower than scum.
Yeah, THAT seems objective and logical to me.
I forgot, if you happen to be a black conservative you are not allowed to opine on the subject of race, racism. You are a de facto genetic defect.If you are black Democrat, you are entitled to a seat in Congress, or an affirmative action presidency, and therefore entitled to reelection. Especially if you were impeached as a judge, a communist or rapist — those are bonus points. And its all in the Constitution.
Heck, EVERYTHING is in the Constitution…that the Left WANTS to be in there.
Other stuff, like that pesky 2nd Amendment?
Nah. That was just something dreamed up by stupid, racist, old, rich, white guys who hated women, blacks, …and now children.
It is often said that the Left sees the Constitution as a ‘Living Document’. That’s wrong.
They actually see it as a Wipe/Erase board, and they have the only set of markers.
