Left Concludes: We're All Racists
Fox ^ | September 17, 2009 | By Greg Gutfeld

Posted on 09/17/2009 8:54:00 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

Now, you know a word has lost all meaning when Jimmy Carter finally gets around to saying it.

America's angriest has-been just had to weigh in on the Joe Wilson affair, linking it to inherent racism, following in the wispy footsteps of every bitter lefty blogger.

FORMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.

Carter, who I'm now convinced is really Maureen Dowd in a fright mask, seems unaware that even the White House doesn't see the racism he sees. This is what the Gibbenator had to say:

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Well, let's take a look at what former President Carter said. The answer that I'm going to give is the same answer that I gave on Sunday, when I was asked this question. The president does not believe that that criticism comes based on the color of his skin.

Instead of enjoying his golden years doing acrostics, while waiting for "Judging Judy" to come on, President Peanut feels compelled to remind us all why he sucked as a leader: He's just a bitter man who always saw America as part of the problem, never the solution. So even when America elects a black man as president, the act only masks a more sinister urge.

“The president does not believe that that criticism comes based on the color of his skin”

Rather, he thinks it is based on half of his skin.

I know I am a racist, but. . . .

I think former Pres. Carter is seeing a lot of racism, but I think I can help him out:

Mr. Carter, STEP AWAY FROM THE MIRROR!!!

Well, I looked it up on Dictionary.com and it seems they've changed the definition of racism:

rac⋅ism   /ˈreɪsɪzəm/ [rey-siz-uhm]
–noun
1. a belief that limited government is best, esp. federal government.
2. opposition to collectivist takeovers of major segments of the private sector (auto manufacture, banking, insurance, healthcare, graft).

Syn: self-reliance
Ant: statism

So, yes, call me a racist, please.

How does Jimmy explain that Obama was elected president in the first place?

I know lots has happened since the election. But, if America is so racist and bigoted and all that, then how in the sam hill did someone of Obama’s ethnic/racial background get elected president?

There was a time when the election of a black president was unthinkable, but obviously that time has passed.

So then, does Jimmy think that all the criticism directed at him is because he is a southerner? Or a peanut farmer warehouse dude?

Do any Democrats think that criticism coming their way is due to their liberal/radical policies? Do they just take for granted that everyone wants liberalism?

Did Jimmy come up with this racist line because he can’t think of any other possible explanation?

Control the conversation, control the culture.

Just like disagreement with homosexuality became “homophobia” to try to shut people up.

Now they are using “racist” to control the conversation.

Don’t let them.

If you work for a living and hate paying taxes, you might be a racist;

If you hate big government, you might be a racist;

If you think religion should play a large part in peoples’ lives, you might be a racist;

If you want to get through life on your own steam, and without help from the government, you might be a racist;

If you like NASCAR, you might be a racist;

If you have a big, flat screen TV, you might be a racist;

If you think a 55MPH speed limit if just a target of opportunity, you might be a racist;

If you think the family is essential to a stable society and a strong nation, you might be a racist;

If you only vote once for your candidate of choice, you might be a racist;

If you think that abortion is a sin against God, you might be a racist;

If you think Mr. Obama is a socialist, well obviously, you might be a racist.

Phew!

Because America is racist.
Would Mr. Obama had been nominated/elected President if he was white?
Perhaps not the brand of 'racism' we're used to seeing ('Mississippi Burning', 'To Kill a Mockingbird', etc) - but voting for someone, or against someone, strictly based on skin color is racism... And yes, the only qualification that Mr. Obama brought to the job was his skin coloring... That and a top-notch ability to read from a teleprompter.

So who is going to be our spokesperson and tell Carter to shut up and stop keeping old divisions alive? Where are Boehner, McConnell, Romney, Huckabee, et al? Some major figure ought to set the record straight and tell off Carter.

"Left Concludes: We're All Racists"

Folks, most of the leftists who spread BS like this don't really believe it themselves. They just try to get millions of mindless idiots to believe it. The truth doesn't matter to them. It's pure propaganda meant to undermine us.

I cannot STAND someone projecting their stuff onto me and then accusing me of it. Projection, pure and simple. Carter needs psychological help, as usual.

This is all part and parcel of turning this country fascist, imo.

Are we becoming a fascist nation?

Organized Propaganda:

a) The creation of social mythology that venerates (creates saints of) one element of society while concurrently vilifying (dehumanizing) another element of the population through misinformation, misdirection and the obscuring of factual matter through removal, destruction or social humiliation, (name-calling, false accusations, belittling and threats).

b) The squelching of public debate not agreeing with the popular agenda via slander, libel, threats, theft, destruction, historical revisionism and social humiliation.  Journalists in particular are terrorized if they attempt to publish stories contrary to the agenda.

“I am sorry Sir but your race card has been declined.”

The way Carter and other scum are playing the race card is like that kids' game of 52 pickup.

Anyone remember that immature game?

Is this true? Racist, a communist word. Because if it is I will not use such a word. Maybe I'll use he's preaching racism or he's preaching racialism -- but I don't want to adopt too much commie terminology if I don't have to.

Racism has now been re-defined by the left. It is now a political tool to describe someone who disagrees with your politics. It no longer has nothing to do with skin color IMO. The more it is used in that manner, the more the charges prove false and empty, it no longer has the same effect of causing shame - it now gets lost in the the noise of the shrill Left.

It eventually becomes a joke tag line like "Disagree and your worse than Hitler."

The recent Newsweek cover story, “Is Your Baby Racist?” explains the situation well. Even Caucasian babies, who have not yet been socialized by their parents and other white institutions to be racist, are racist. Racism is an inescapable genetic consequence of being Caucasian.

For those of you who remember your Baltimore Catechism, racism is to Caucasians what Catholics believe Original Sin is to all human beings. Caucasian-Americans have but one way to overcome their racism. They must repent of racism and submit to the authority of their omnipotent State-God. But repentance first requires acknowledgment that all Caucasians are racists.

Thus, the post-modern definition of a racist is a Caucasian person who 1) does not acknowledge that all whites are racists, 2) does not repent for being the contemptible racist human being that he or she is, AND 3) does not submit and support an omnipotent State-God to make redress for the evil of the Caucasian race. Once one understands this definition of "racist", it's obvious that criticism of Barack Obama's hopes and plans for change can only be explained by racism. Critics either don't understand that they are racist, or knowingly celebrate their racism, or refuse to make amends for their racism by embracing "hope and change". Under this definition, it is clearly impossible for a person of color to be racist.

There was a study about this many years ago.

Babies are not racist but when they see a face in a different color than the one they are accostomed to seeing, they may all get scared.They begin to perceive strangers.

This happens at about 6 months, if I remember correctly.

Even black babies react this way.
