MSNBC: Saying 'golf' and 'Chicago' is racist
Examiner.com ^ | 8/30/12

Posted on 08/31/2012 10:26:53 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

On Wednesday, hosts at MSNBC informed America that the words "golf" and "Chicago" are racist, especially if they are used while speaking of Barack Obama. Newsbusters' Rusty Weiss reported early Thursday morning that while covering the GOP convention, Chris Matthews "came to the conclusion that reminding people of the President's roots in Chicago politics is racist." The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson set the tone of the exchange. "It's all part of this Barack Obama as 'other' sort of blanket campaign that has been waged by the Republican Party for some time now.

Does anyone suspect Tingles Matthews and the rest of the MSNBC crew are closet racists themselves? Methinks they protest too much.

“...the words “golf” and “Chicago” are racist.”

I haven't received the latest list yet - how about “shoe”, “megaphone”, and “grunties”?

Excuse me, but you failed to insert the “P” PMSNBC.
A great gift in my life is that I have never seen the network.
I only hear about it and their Marxist clowns

Due to these sensativities, I have been trying to remember never to use Chica-- and instead use the term "Chicongo".

Senator McConnell’s speech was little noticed among all the others, but apparently sent MSNBC into orbit.

These people are certifiable.

Saying MSNBC is the sign of a moron. Calling it MSLSD is a sign of brilliance.

“For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour,” Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said. Naturally, O'Donnell saw racism in the remark. “Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama,” he said.

This is..."ridiculous" is too soft a word. I can't come up with a word to describe how absurd this is.


Here's that "racist" McConnell pictured with his wife.

The more they saturate the airwaves and print-ink trying to label everything the Repubs do as "racist", the more they dilute their message. People will say, and are beginning to say, "enough!".

I say let them continue to squawk their accusations. By election day a lot of people are going to vote for Romney while muttering "Call me racist, will you!"

You can add “Chair” to the list of “GOP Racist Code Words” so you all know what this means, Pee Wee Herman must be a member of the KKK he had chair as his secret word almost every episode of Pee Wee’s Playhouse
The left has become so laughable now its actually quite funny. They know they are going to lose badly its just so beyond pathetic now

Anyone remember this?

This is exactly what they're doing now. The meme is "All Republicans are RACIST!"

Watch the Sheep respond, the same way they did to Sarah. "Democrats GOO-ooo-ood, Republicans BAA-AAA-AAAAD!"

Watch as they must step it up at every opportunity because the old lines are stale and not working.
I just cannot imagine what's next, but whatever it is they will certainly be vulgar about it.
Vulgarity is all they have left to top this one.

Pass the popcorn.

That's basically what they're charging him with. Old big-style, big-city machine of 50 years ago."

“They keep saying Chicago, by the way, you noticed?” he asked.

Well Chicago is well known for its big-city machine politics as is evidenced by the last three Mayors of Chicago that were sent to prison (not to mention the mayor of East Chicago).

And to expand the on the Chicago culture of corruption we could mention that in Illinois at least 79 elected officials have been convicted of wrongdoing since 1972.

“Well, there’s a lot of black people in Chicago,” said New York Magazine's John Heileman.

Well Chicago is a major city in the United States and one could safely say that there are a lot of black people in every major city in the United States. So what is your point? If I say Boston is that also racist? Hey there are a lot of Irish there besides blacks and a lot of people have problems with the Irish (there Catholic ya know)!

The real obvious point being made has nothing to do with race. The point is that Obama is the product of Chicago’s political machine. The Chicago political machine has a long history of political palm greasing going back well of a century.

Obama’s administration has a lot of obvious political palm greasing going on. Need I even say Solindra?

If speaking the truth is now to be labeled “Racist” then there is no hope for Democracy in the United States because the truth will no longer be honored or respected.

I wonder what actual racist think of all this. They need to keep up with all the code languages that politicians are trying to whistle blow to them. “Hey vote for me, instead of that Chicago golfer... No....why did you vote for Obama!! Didn’t you realize he’s black! Maybe my hint that he’s a Chicago golfer went over your head”

During WW2, Frank Capra did the “Why We Fight” series. In it-maybe the first episode- there was a clip of a radio tower with “lies, lies, lies” coming from it. If anyone can send me a still from that, I’d be much obliged.

I got my conservative speech decoder ring from Chris Matthews, but I don’t understand what “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine” means. “Republicans are Racist,” I guess.

This is why we need a comedy show as good and popular as John Stewart. The best way to combat this type of ridiculousness is to make fun of it relentlessly. Could you imagine the kind of “word association” game one could do on such a show to turn some of the most innocent words into a racist code word? The more indirect the association, the funnier the bit. It would be really funny to go 6 words away from the word at hand before hitting on the “racist” overtone, wouldn’t it?

Besides lilCrissy, they have the madCow, and the notSharpTON. It's a real freak show on that network.
