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

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.
