Skip to comments.On being labeled as 'racist'
Posted on 07/15/2010 3:33:06 AM PDT by Scanian
A clear pattern of behavior has emerged over the last 16 months. According to liberals, if you disagree with their thinking, and if you disagree with the Obama administration, you are not only wrong, you are a racist.
The latest strike by the left comes from the NAACP, which has resolved that the tea party movement is inherently racist. At its most simple, this is a direct attack on the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.
The NAACP has long history of liberalism and racism.
If you are a conservative including a conservative African-American there is no room for you at the NAACP. If you have opinions that differ from the NAACP and the liberal establishment, and if you are African-American, you are an Uncle Tom, a negro, not black enough and against our people.
In other words, the NAACP fancies itself the thought police for millions of black Americans. Disagree with them and you will be ostracized and attacked. You will be subjected to public humiliation and racist commentary from NAACP leadership. The message is clear: Tow the line or pay the price.
But the NAACP does not stand alone in this regard. The left has a long history of using the race card. It has been pulled on people across the political spectrum.
President Bill Clinton was smeared as a racist by the Obama campaign when Hillary Clinton was running for president. It seems that anyone who disagrees with the far left, socialist policies of Barack Obama and the current administration is subject to the heavy hand of the race card.

I was called a racist when I voiced my intent to vote for McCain. A guy I know who actually is a racist and had previously used the quote “the blacks will take care of the Jews” called me a racist! It was his intent to vote for 0bama. I was floored that this guy who actually said racist things and who I really did not like called me a racist!
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....
"Security" patrols stationed at polling places in Philly:

If you disagree with the Obama and other progressive liberals you have been proved sane.
The reace card thing has been turned into a joke.
The naacp is a joke.
The word “racist” no longer has any meaning, especially when actual racism perpetrated by liberal blacks continues to become more well known to people.
Let ‘em play it, then watch what happens the day government isn’t there to back their thuggish behavior up with the law.
But it does have a soft spot for whitey child molesters.
No amount of money could change that freak from what he was.
Reading this it the story just struck me about J. Edgar Steele recently “disappeared” by big bro, and who is the the author of a book titled “Defensive Racism”....Steele has been for years labled a “racist”....
Related? Who knows....
Considering the scum that’s calling folks racist, I’m proud to be called a racist !
Of course it only works as long as whites play the game. Otherwise they can manipulate us anywhere they want too.
Racist a generic word that has no real meaning other than ‘bad person’.
Racist a generic word that has no real meaning other than bad person
bad white person.
“You’re a racist!!”
“And your point is...?”
I am sooooo tired of “racism”, teacher’s “contract talks”, the fight against obesity, the “war on drugs”, diversity education; I have been listening to this crap my whole life-literally-and as soon as I hear it, I STOP listening because it just means that whoever is talking has stopped using their own brain.
Uh oh, a rational article by someone not wearing knee pads for Obama.
The politico is doomed!!!!!
And your point is...?
I'd go with "So how much money do you want this time?"
Today, the label “racist” is applied to anyone who disagrees in any way with any liberal non-white or non-male (please note, that term is more inclusive than “female”), or with any policy advocated by any liberal (white males included, if there are any) that purports to serve the interests of non-whites and non-males.
As such it has lost its meaning, and we should stop fearing it.
Indeed, the act of applying the label has become the equivalent of shouting “I am a liberal statist!,” and serves the useful purpose of exposing liberal statists.
Never appear to agree with a liberal's taunt. Never.
Instead: counterattack immediately.
Do not pause to deny or even acknowledge the charge
Do not reflexively urinate over yourself in submission
Instead say: "You're a disgusting race-baiter. Martin Luther King would have spat in your eye. You racist piece of filth."
These people do not deserve your civility. They hate you. Counterattack!
When the Jerimiah Wright stuff came out about Obama, I think the Left gnashed their teeth.
When you stir crap. it really begins to stink
It is obvious that cries of racism are used to inflame the black voters to encourage them to vote against “Whitey” aka the Republican Party. It is a tool for the Democrats and they use it constantly.
We should take it with a grain of salt.
The left has failed to realize that the Race Card doesn’t work anymore.
Source: TIME Magazine:
"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
My advice is not to take it at all. Any persons or organizations that use the race card are filthy race-baiters. Do not be courteous or nuanced to these people.
Instead, shove their racist lies up their asses. Do it right away.
Racist, anti-semite, islamaphobe, “denier” of whatever. Disagree with the conclusions of any self annointed victim class and you’re vunerable to such condemnations. Fortuneately such currencys effectiveness has fallen into the league of Zimbabwe notes.
Meanwhile, THEY are the racists! See my earlier post on Obama's "Black Liberation Theology". He says in one of his books that he drew lots of inspiration from BLT.
Sorry but it is you that is playing their game. By embracing the word you give power to it. The power that is keeping the right constantly on their heels. The power that manipulates the right to jump when they say jump. This crap has been going on since day one with the Tea Party. We are still dancing to their tune and look how much time, energy, waste and backing up goes into it. A word BTW that has no real meaning except evil white guy. By owning the word it loses all its power. Ever notice the left pays no mind whatsoever to being labeled as such? Ever noticed in spite of race and race issues there are hundreds/thousands of race groups, laws and policies? How can that be? Only because the whole race game has but one purpose and it is working as intended because the right in general and whites specifically continue to play the game.
I work at a university. You ought to hear the BS that goes on here.
You can’t walk in a hall or turn a corner without listening to some a^% hat (professor OR student) babbling on about ‘racism’ they have experienced or that ‘racists’ are everywhere, racism, racism etc.
Professors in America were bought and paid for long ago and this misfortune is mirrored in the perfect lack of imagination, academic curiosity or political resourcefulness demonstrated by young people.
The most depressing part about this is that students, who know absolutely NOTHING else, have THIS reactionary and groundless Liberal ‘catechism’ down pat. Professors criminal and intellectual malfeasance guarantees that students are directly and summarily defrauded of their right to consider ALL and EVERYTHING fully and without bias. If students could do as well remembering their coursework or as successfully commit their lessons to rote, they’d be doing something. In the mean time they walk around just like mindless little programmed automatons!! Academic rigor is incidental to Liberalism in this place.
It is my belief that wholesome, valid and time abiding personal core convictions are closely tied to (impossible without) education and experience. On their own, young people cannot possibly possess much less produce such extreme and biased opinions. It follows then, that a students education is incomplete and his/her experience is limited .so guess where their biased and extremist views came from!!!
If the state of public education has not interfered with your digestion yet, you have a stronger stomach than I do.
when my hubby took courses to become certified for management - he had to take a course on racial oppression where they taught him that every white guy looking to be “the boss” - like him - were the cause of all evil in the world.
He called it “jumping through hoops”.
You show up to class - you do your best not to piss off the lib prof. - and then they give you a piece of paper declaring you “educated”.
By correctly labeling the left as racists, we are playing their game?
The word 'racist' does mean something. That's why it has power. The left are terrified that we might correctly ascribe to them, so they continually bombard us with it in a classic display of projection.
Do not be afraid to use the word immediately and without compunction on race-baiters. Anyone who calls you a racist for no reason is a racist. They are using race in a toxic and hateful way. That's racism..
Rebuke them, accuse them, shove their hateful race-baiting up their asses.
But for the love of all that is good: do NOT demurely accept without protesting whatever name the left gives you. That is very close to being cooperation with evil.
crap smells better than that..
