How Sarah Palin Exploits Right-Wing Racism (They're fuming over her MLK-day message to Barry)
US News and World Report ^ | January 21, 2014 | Jamie Chandler

Posted on 01/22/2014 2:02:20 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Once again, the curmudgeonly Sarah Palin didn't let a holiday pass without reminding us that she has Facebook page. On Martin Luther King Day, she posted a response to President Obama's New Yorker interview where she called on him to honor MLK by not playing the race card. The president had said that his approval rating suffers because some people don't like the idea of having a black president.

Now her post doesn't rival some of her other holiday harangues, such as her book "Good Tidings and Great Joys," a how-to-guide to fighting back against the War on Christmas, or her Veteran's Day appearance on the "Today Show" where she railed against the Affordable Care Act for the millionth time. But it was a gem just the same: an offensive exploitation of racism by accusing the president of racism.

Palin forgets that Republicans have made great use of race-baiting rhetoric over the last six years, attacking the president and his policies with coded language connecting poverty to racial stereotypes. During his 2012 presidential run, Newt Gingrich argued blacks should demand jobs and not food stamps. More recently, Heritage Action attacked food stamps and Head Start as two programs that promote a culture of dependency, code words that imply African-Americans are lazy...

Reince Priebus and Obama want to import 20 million foreign workers because it will help blacks.

Way too much power to be lost if blacks lose their victimhood and entitlement status.

The vast preponderance of racism in this country exists on the Left, not the Right. How is Sarah Palin “exploiting right-wing racism” but Al Sharpton and Jessuh Jagmo and the Trayvonites are just seekers after justice?

That race boat done sailed and sunk. Try again ...

What a joke. USNWR accuses Republicans of “code words” while dismissing Obama’s direct statement that some people “dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president”.

I know he’s serious, that’s the thing that is laughable
about them.
I know, I KNOW that he doesn’t have the understanding
to figure out that “a gem just the same: an offensive exploitation of racism by accusing the president of
racism.” is the same thing as the President exploiting
racism by accusing the American people of racism!

That is what I FIND OFFENSIVE!!!

That an American President, no matter his race would
use race as an excuse for his own failed policies
I FIND ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!

Even when my appreciation of the man is at zero I
find he can always do something to drag the office
down farther.

Every time totalitarian leftists and and their enablers talk about "right-wing racism," all they do is demonstrate who completely clueless they are about the Tea Party agenda.

And by the way:

Leftists like Jamie Chandler are opposed to individual liberty as defined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The only real issue they have with chattel slavery in America two hundred years ago is that the slaves were privately owned.

They are all orgasmic over the idea of slavery to the state.

Democrats never pass up on opportunity to tell us why enslavement by the state is for our own protection and our own safety, because life under the anarchy that conservatives want to impose is just too risky and dangerous. We can't have any of that inhumane"on-your-own economics" that conservatives advocate.

Thereby proving that you no longer have to be black to be an Uncle Tom.

"Jamie" is the racist, because he seems to think that blacks should be satisfied with food stamps rather than jobs.

There's a technique for "reading" faces (yes, there are lots of techniques, many of them demo'd by Tim Roth and the kids on Lie to Me, I only know this one), which is to cover your right eye and the right side of his face (his right). Then look at the left half of his face. This technique works mostly with people who demonstrate asymmetry.

Look at this guy's right side w/ your right eye, and see the fun. Look at the other side, see the hate. Wow. Dude, sign up now ..... oh, wait, that's right -- Barky's boys will cancel your civil rights and put you on thorazine. Sorry, my bad.

In his view, any opinion on certain issues that differs from his own can be classified as “hate.” So - I guess - when Obama claimed to oppose gay marriage in 2008, he was - by definition - a hater. Yet Jamie undoubtedly voted for him. Jamie would probably reply, “Obama is not a hater, he was lying, and he’s my kind of liar.”

“attacking the president and his policies with coded language”

Ah yes, that coded racist dog whistle language that only liberals can hear. Remember before the last election, “golf” was supposed to be racist in reference to Obama, because a black man golfing makes people think of Tiger Woods, which makes people think of a black man lying and cheating, so it’s racist. Of course right after the election Obama went golfing with...Tiger Woods.

Jamie, I’ll keep saying this until it sinks in: I can think of three Obama appointees who are both white and (for now) former presidential candidates. And I don’t particularly respect them either. Biden and Kerry are comic relief, and Hillary got her people killed...but what difference at this point does it make?

Which they will, if we get many more Mexicans in the country .... all whining for the glories of "lost" New Mexico, California, Texas ..... viva Aztlan! Y abajo los gringos, mate los todos ayayayayayyyy!"

I'm waiting for the NWO PTB to flash the green light for a language- and ethnicity-based civil war in the U.S. which they can then "broker" to screw Norman Rockwell's America and get even for World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and the Iraq War.

The article on IRS treatment of politically-active 501(c)'s et cetera actually criticized what the IRS has been doing.

Obama's administration of the IRS rates FAIL even from a liberal like this one.

The advocate of using SPLC tags to cut people off tax preferments was actually advocated by someone else. The author of this article, Chandler, is replying to a Forbes writer's critique of the original idea, which was brought forward by a Georgia academic.
