Congressional Black Caucus Discovers Entire English Language is a Racist Code Word
Front Page Magazine ^ | November 23, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 11/23/2012 10:48:52 PM PST by Olog-hai

Responding to Republican criticism of UN Ambassador Susan Rice for claiming that the Benghazi attack on the US mission and annex there had been caused by a photo of a stuffed teddy bear named Mohammed, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus and Chairwoman of the House Subcommittee on 40 Acres, an Obamaphone and a Mule denounced any attacks on Rice as “horridly and unspeakably racist.”

While Fudge could not point to any single word that was racist, she insisted that every single word used to criticize Rice was a racist code word. “If the language is being used to criticize a black person then we must deem such language to be irreparably and irrevocably racist,” Fudge said. …

Congressman Jim Clyburn went even further. “The entire English language was created by slaveowners as a means of oppression. You can’t just say that one word is a racist code word or another. The whole language, every single word, letter and apostrophe in it is racist. It’s a fact. If you speak English, you’re a racist.”

“If you speak English, you’re a racist.”

Finally, the black caucus admits that they are racist. So I guess we’re all racists. So we have finally reached equality! Stop bitchin’.

"...perhaps he should quack instead of speaking,..."

"Ultimately it was hoped to make articulate speech issue from the larynx without involving the higher brain centres at all. This aim was frankly admitted in the Newspeak word duckspeak […]. Like various words in the B vocabulary, duckspeak was ambivalent in meaning. Provided that the opinions which were quacked out were orthodox ones, it implied nothing but praise, and when the Times referred to one of the orators of the Party as a doubleplusgood duckspeaker it was paying a warm and valued compliment."

I didn’t know that the Congressional Black Caucus could read English, or any other organized language. “Umgawa” doesn’t quality for “hello” where I come from.

While this piece is “satire”, it contains so many kernels of truth that you could plant a cornfield with them.

Fudge just sounds purely stupid while Clyburn has been practicing to improve his stupidity over the decades.

If I were a black person, I’d be absolutely ashamed of these media clowns, not just for the stupid things they say, but for the stupid things they believe.

I’m Jewish and believe me, I’m totally ashamed of most of the Jewish members of Congress, particularly those who are Democrats. They have proven that ignorance has no limits, and they keep on “pushing” them limits all the time.

We are in for hard times, folks. Stupidity has reached an all-time high among the American people to the point that a good case of whoop-ass wouldn’t make a dent.

Well, massive unemployment is going to kick in the balls of even the stupidest people out there. Obama has put on his shit-kicker shoes and all Americans are going to get one in the groin and the wallet and their savings/retirement accounts.

Even stupid people moan once in a while but they had better get used to it. Obama doesn’t like half of the country and he’s out to get them. The other half is too stupid, too stoned, too drunk, too lazy, to addicted to the welfare entitlement plantation, to care about our country.

Fudge and Clyburn are just examples of stupidity taken to its highest heights. However, up there you will also find Debbie Wasserman-Schulz Putz, Schmucky Schumer, Nancy “Stretch” Pelosi, Harry the “thug” Reid, and the rest of the Demonrats. Getting crowded out there in “Stupidland”.

Next you’ll have some congressman asking whether stationing more troops on Guam will tip the island over. Oh, someone already did. Image that.

It should be a felony to post such an article without marking it “satire”.

Sounds very much like Proverbs 17:10.
A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
Considering all that the first few verses of Isaiah 3 said would be taken away from us, how close are we to the prophesied end?
For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, / The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, / The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counseller, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. / And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. / And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable. …

— Isaiah 3:1-5

Inch by mile we’re creeping/lurching ever closer to the enslavement and extermination of the white race around the world. Seemed so improbable years ago. Now it’s as plain as the nose on Barbara Streisand’s face.

Soon they’re going to call for the outlawing of the English language altogether. And worse. Guaranteed. I mean, how can they continue to ramp up the rhetoric every year (a central feature of leftism) without ultimately, inevitably, arriving at that point?

Probably true...

Some examples

GOOD MORNING...yea, easy for you to say -you are white and I am not so it is a good morning to you.
Well, off to work (at store where buy coffee)’ yea, easy for you to say -you are white and I am not so you have a great job and I am stuck here ringing up coffee.

So after getting berated by all below you in stature as ALL have picked up on this victim thing, Just refuse to speak to anyone.

Then you are RACIST because you don’t speak to anyone.

SAME PRINCIPLE was used when dealing with SEXUAL HARASSMENT - No matter what you said was/could be construed as sexual in nature if one was so bent.

So , WE just stopped idly talking or chatting to people in general and were deemed a SNOB.

Life repeats itself...if it worked once, it surely will work again.

Why waste time printing nonsense like this. No language is racist. Language is just a way of communicating, nothing more. There is plenty of things to be concerned about in this life, but this is not one of them.

My patience is wearing thin and I would assume most of “white” America is as well. The plantation committee’s in charge of overseeing thier own kind needs the fuel to keep the fires of racism burning so they can keep thier positions of wealth and power over the poverty of their brothers and sisters. Seems like the brothers and sisters need a wake up call until they get a free phone or a free anything and they sit back down

Nothing new here - since “PC” became the vogue, there has been an inexorable push to make anyone with conservative principles into racist, sexist, misanthropes. They are just becoming more open because far too many have gone with the flow instead of resisting the baby steps - now they intend to take giant strides. Sadly, they will get away with it.

Poe’s Law in action

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe’s_law

Poe’s law, named after its author Nathan Poe, is an Internet adage reflecting the idea that without a clear indication of the author’s intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between sincere extremism and an exaggerated parody of extremism.[1]

“My patience is wearing thin and I would assume most of “white” America is as well.”

Any person I know of any color that supports legalized abortion believes blacks should avail themselves of it frequently; Justice Ginsburg almost stated as much publicly. There is no more “white guilt”, apparently some white voters simply prefer to keep the abortion mills humming while we import a bronze urban underclass to replace our black one.

Actually African-americans cannot be racist, since they are powerless and dominated by white slave owners and the KKK.
They are all poor and downtrodden and have been beaten into submission by white racist bigots from the souf. I think that might cover it. But wait..... I forgot about the cops and their racist PO-lice dogs.

From the article:

“Some called for staffing the Democratic Party entirely with illiterates, while others argued that such a measure would be entirely redundant. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was reportedly taking Spanish lessons from Mayor Bloomberg in preparation for the Democratic Party’s shift to conducting all business in broken Spanish.”

Remember in Orwell’s novel 1984 a revised form of English called Newspeak was forced on the masses because its limited words made political dissent impossible.
