Dem congressman: Letís face it, pretty much all criticism of Obama is racist
Hot Air ^ | April 29, 2014 | Allahpundit

Via BuzzFeed, deep thoughts from Rep. Bennie Thompson, adding his two cents on a Nation of Islam radio show to the characteristically thoughtful Conversation About Race that America’s having this week. It’s fun listening to this on the same day that Chris Lehane is defending the memo he wrote for the Clinton White House nearly 20 years ago about the “vast right-wing conspiracy” that was out to take down Billary. Every Democratic president, it seems, is the subject of unprecedented conservative vitriol, although Clinton at least could point to his eventual impeachment as evidence that it was true. Thompson’s case for O rests on the idea that it can’t, can’t be a coincidence that conservatives embraced a strong anti-government ethos right around the time that the first black president took office. Things would, presumably, have been different had Hillary squeaked through the Democratic primaries and beaten McCain in 2008 — despite the financial crisis and ensuing mega-bailout, despite the multi-spectrum failure of Bush’s second term, despite ideological jitters over the fact that Democrats had assumed total control of government at a moment of deep economic crisis. This guy seemingly cannot imagine anything but a magic-bullet explanation for the complex process of disillusionment by which a political party shifts ideologically. That’s not unusual for liberals, but in the past the magic bullet typically involved economics; Obama’s infamous bitter-clinger theory of why rural voters are passionate about religion, guns, and immigration is a classic example. Thompson wanted something cruder. He found it.

It’s a cold comfort to know, though, that we’re headed towards a (relative) golden age under President Hillary, whose whiteness will ensure the sort of muted partisanship and collegial congressional cheer for which Bill Clinton’s presidency is duly famous. This is just one of two clips, by the way; you can click the link up top and visit BuzzFeed to hear Thompson call Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” in the other, in case you care.

Let’s see Bennie try to say that to Vladimir Putin. Face to face.

I don't see any comfort, because the premise is false. Hillary is inoculated by dint of being a woman. All criticism of her would be deemed to be sexist.

I suppose the premise was constrained to race. But the broader victimization you describe is no doubt a tactic used to silence opposition.

The jug-eared jackass had a melanin-challenged mother, making him half white. In this case two halves make a hole.

The way liberals think (which it has yet to be proven they have an actual thought process) if you’re not a liberal then you’re racist.

Ergo, all criticism of Israel is anti-semitism. Sauce, goose, gander, etc.

America’s Blacks, the New Royalty, are proof against any and every criticism - cuz, you know, it’s ALL just racism....

Very convenient, but utter horsesh*t.

I wonder if the same goes for Clarence Thomas.

And the field of “broader victimization” is constrained only by imagination and chutzpah. Race and sex are in vogue, and religion is an obvious third; but a Democrat could claim victimhood on any basis - the press would ham it up.

If being an idiot is a race, I agree.

I think I’ll write a song. The title will be “Skin In The Game”. It will also be the title of the album. I’m thinking it could be a concept album, maybe a double album too. It won’t be controversial and censored until it’s about to go platinum but I and many others in the music biz will already have made a fortune by then. No one will know what the lyrics and album art really mean, if anything, but that won’t stop the second-guessers who will run wild with the worst-case scenario, hoping they have assumed correctly... I’ll even have a mystery collaborator with a strange sounding pseudonym mentioned in the liner notes just to make it that much more ‘interesting’. Any volunteers?

Personally, I find the black racist offensive of being offended, offensive

Must we all just get along?

I’d say he fits in more like an Afghani Dancing Boy. That’s a time honored Muslim tradition.
