Team Obama Uses "Racism" Claim To Intimidate (You Can't Spell "Hate" Without T, E and A)
Boston Herald ^ | March 25, 2010 | Michael Graham

Posted on 03/25/2010 2:26:46 AM PDT by suspects

You can’t spell “hate” without “T,” “E” and “A.”

This has been the media meme on the Tea Party movement from the beginning. Since the day of Rick Santelli’s cable-TV rant in support of capitalism, the default assumption of the left has been that Americans who show up to protest the Obama administration are all just one pillow case and pair of scissors away from joining the Klan.

If it were merely poor reporting, that would be bad enough. But the cry of racism is being used against these concerned citizens, not because it’s true, but because it’s an effective way to intimidate and marginalize President Barack Obama’s political opponents.

The more time Obamacare defenders spend shouting “bigot,” the less time they have to spend trying to explain the unworkable math of their new bureaucratic boondoggle.

Which is why the O-bots of MSNBC have made a cottage industry out of stereotyping protesters as, to quote one of the network’s frequent guests, Janeane Garofalo, “white supremacists” and “teabagging rednecks.” And the media’s current obsession with allegations - most uncorroborated - that an idiot or two shouted a racial slur during last weekend’s protests of the Obamacare vote is straight from their playbook.

Is it possible that among the tens of thousands of protesters, someone did something stupid and offensive? Of course. What does that prove about the 60 percent of all Americans who share the Tea Partiers’ opposition to Obamacare?

If every Obamacare opponent is going to be held responsible for the ignorant rantings of a single lunatic, does that mean Obama supporters are responsible for Keith Olbermann?

Liberal elites angered by the mere existence of the Tea Party movement...

With all due respect, and its because I want to believe it too, are these guys truly fools? There are certain things that reporters on all of the networkds love to cover regardless of their purported leanings. They love to cover poor people of color being picked on by white people/conservatives/racists/clingers. Last evening on Fox, it was report after report on how these poor democrat congresstrash have had their windows broken, profane threats on their answering machines, the whole 9 yards. I didn't bother to try to endure O'Reilly because I knew he was going to be sure to condone the right.

The question that I keep asking myself is, are these people truly of the right. Perhaps a few are or think they are, but, could they also be people of the left who have been ordered or encouraged to make outrageous calls, comments, etc.? We're pretty certain that nobody spit upon or said racist comments directed at the poor africanhyphenamerican congresstrash who purposely walked thru the tea party crowd gathered there. Who doesn't think that those trash have secured, reserved, private parking so that they don't have to mingle with the peasants?

I think all this crap is an organized effort by the left to discredit us. I don't think they are as foolish as we would like them to be. A journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step, and they have been on that path for decades now refining their approach.

Interesting that there is supposed to be accountability for this alleged hate speech, but if one tries to hold Obama accountable for association of 20 years with Rev. Wright’s hate speech, then you are just being narrow minded or silly or even hateful yourself. This goes way, way, way beyond a double standard. They have to decide...accountability for associations or not. Pick one or the other. Can’t have it both ways.

....so Biden say’s he was told by Odumbo that Odumbo wanted to get a t-shirt made with BFD on it (big f****** deal) but didn’t have the time.
Since were playing political Wheel of Fortune and selecting letters this story seems like it is true.

They can call me a racist till hell freezes over. Doesnt faze me a bit.

I judge each man by his own merits, no matter what color he is, and I judge Obama as a racist, Muslim ,America hating ,Homo loving ,creature working for the devil ,to destroy America. And doing a good job of it.

My p[roblem is that: I am not sure Obama is incompetent.

I believe he is very competent.

He is getting the job done. He just got the United States House of Representatives and The Senate to help him destroy us. Is that incompetence? If he wishes to destroy America , he is doing a great job, and I believe that is his goal.

Now he wants to give away our nuclear umbrella, give amnesty to illegals, refuse to drill our own oil, make us subservient to the UN, take away our arms, cater to Palestine, drop Israel, place a cap on our energy sources, and he is getting it done.

Where is the incompetence?

They’ll stop doing it when it stops “working”.

We’ve trained them to have the race on a hair trigger
by allowing the accusation of racism to make us back down

from our ideological position.

And yet the Klan is the current President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate...in the line of succession for the presidency.

I find it continually amusing the bewilderment of Big Media about the motives of the Tea Party activists. “What do they want?” these morons ask each other. The answer is a smaller, constitutionally-minded government, but that response seems to perplex the presstitutes and the fraudcasters. Why, they must be all racists who hate a black president they nod to themselves over the fumes of the crack pipe. They, like Thomas (What’s The Matter With Kansas?) Frank simply can’t understand why average citizens don’t want a leviathan-nanny state.
