The time has come to ridicule anyone who cries "racism" [vanity]
CNN ^ | CNN

Posted on 09/16/2009 6:53:04 AM PDT by Poopyhead

The cry of racism has been diluted to the point of meaninglessness. The time is ripe to mercilessly ridicule all cries of racism and to repeatedly paint anyone who cries racism as an imbecile. AND NEVER LET UP. No conservative should let a broadcast conversation or interview continue that even implies racism without merciless ridicule. Make them take you off the air. Never let up. This issue is a huge win for conservatives if they play it right.

From CNN: "Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that racial politics played a role in South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress last week and in some of the opposition the president has faced since taking office. "

The reply to claims of racism should be met with the word “Coward” because cowardice is exactly what it is.

I’m still advocating the following reply to any accusation of racism:

“I’m sorry, but your Race Card expired last November.

Do you have any other means if argumentation? We accept logic, empirical evidence and appeals to the Founding Fathers.”

Carter, some members of Congress, and Obambi are imbeciles.

They also need to pay attention to the 55% of Americans who are OPPOSED to Health Care Reform.

And, stay the hell out of our personal business.

Let me be among the first to ridicule the gratuitous use of the charge of racism. Ex President Carter is a bubblehead for doing so. But it’s what we have come to expect from this worst president and worst ex-president of all time!

Morning Joe had a man on today crying racism at just about all the right leaning talk show host. He said some really dumb stuff about Rush, Joe called him on 1 thing and then rolled over.
Really worth hearing this

The new definition of racist is “anyone whose skin tone is lighter than someone they criticize”.

"I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, "

Carter is stupider now than when he was President. Opposition to socialism and the curtailment of freedom is not racist, it is patriotic! 0bama's marxist / socialist programs, his arrogance and drive for unbridled power is what stirs the animosity.

Being black has nothing to do with it, except for the fact that he, his wife, and his inner circle don't go a day without expressing their hatred for whites and playing the race card. Frankly, I fed up. He has done more in nine months to set race relations back than the last 40 years combined.

Every Conservative on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, should blame everything on RACISM.

Poor Economy........RACISM!
Auto sales down.....RACISM!
Natural disaster....RACISM!
Newspaper fails.....RACISM!

What does RACISM have to do with any of these? Nothing. That’s the point! RACISM is thrown out whenever liberals and democrats are losing the argument. Cheapen the claim of RACISM but blaming EVERTHING on it.

Don’t like my post? That’s because of RACISM!!!!!!

The poster has a good idea.

This Rule#5 is straight out of Rules for Radicals, the playbook for Obama and his cronies.

Let’s use the tactics on them for a change...

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Again they misunderstood the old anti-Semite. He was just looking for a headline to play up his new book endorsement from UBL.

Today, racism only means that you don’t have a valid argument on your side and if you are unwilling to concede the point, you have to attack the messenger.

Never try to defend yourself if you are accused of racism. Throw it right back at them, and even harder. If someone says you do not like Hussein because he is black, tell them that you know that they HATE you because you are white (or whatever color you think you are). Accuse them of being hateful and racist. Tell them that a man should be judged by his character and not his color. Tell them to stop hating and try to see people for what they are and ignore their color. Do not let up, I have been doing this, the people who once wielded the race and hate stick over me now never challenge me on any issues concerning hate crimes and race issues. They are like Chihuahua’s, barking, yapping and becoming emboldened as you back up, all you have to do is kick that little yapping dog one time, punt it over the fence. Knock the ever living crap out of it.

The only racists I see out there are people like Nancy Pelosi who are implying that for some reason, President Obama should be protected from criticism and challenge, unlike every other President before him. It is almost like she is implying he has some sort of deficiency that he can’t handle the criticism and shouldn’t be challenged. She doesn’t want him to be treated as equal, she is telling the world he isn’t as strong of a leader as President’s past and should be given special provisions for his deficiencies.

Now that is racist.

belief among many white people -- not just in the South but around the country -- that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply," Carter said.

"I made it up, and then I worried about it. Deeply."

God, he's a vile disgusting man. Shuffle off. Soon.

The ONLY person I am hearing say this is Carter, and while he is accusing others of this, I have a feeling it is a reflection of his own beliefs that he is projecting. Why else would he and people like Nancy Pelosi try to coddle and protect President Obama as though he had some sort of deficiency if they didn't believe he was less of a person? We are the ones who want to treat him as an equal in that position- in that he should be able to equally take the criticism and challenge that every other president before him faced.

The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.

The Pope said, “Did you know that with just one little wave of my hand I can make every person in the crowd go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display but will go deep into their hearts, and they will forever speak of this day and rejoice.”

Pelosi seriously doubts this, and says, “One little wave of your hand, and everyone in the crowd go crazy with joy? Show me”, she said.

So the Pope slapped her.

Nah I am using a different tack. If I get accused of racism for opposing a politician that is not the same color as me my reply now on is gonna be: "What ever you wish to believe is fine with me I am still gonna oppose your stupid Socialist plan."

It has started to bug me the last few days when I am hearing people I have known for years- highly educated, extremely nice, many close friends, most you would never think of as liberal, parroting Jimmy Carter and others on this. One person was a former boss, the sweetest woman in the world, personally she lives a very conservative life, talks personal responsibility, but she has started shouting to the rooftops this week praises for Carter..

When demwits like Pelosi have no facts or law so they play the race card, then fold their arms and give you that smug: “Guess I told you—I win!”-look, instead of walking away, smack them upside the head/snatch `em bald-headed?

Hmmmmmmmm .................

exactly! The racism claim is so cheap already that conservatives can grab the word. A huge crutch to the Democrat party could be kicked out from under them, picked up, and used to beat them senseless with it. It will work every time. There is no defense.

Could you imagine what would happen to the liberal cause in general if conservatives ridiculed every use of racism. It would be OUR issue. It would work for us. Liberalism uses racism everywhere. In some ways it is there only issue.

Racisism would replace Mcarthyism as the instant SHUT-UP. And it would be our word to own.

Not even that. It's about Marxist ideology.

You got it - I read the rules-for-radicals last night. It’s pretty obvious that this would work even without reading it. Notice how the other posters in this thread are repeating the same things conservatives have always said about charges of racism (its a cructh, etc, etc). Those are defensive measure. We have to attack, attack, attack. The best attack in this case is ridicule. Racism is overused like Communism was overused by McCarthy. People are more sick of this race bating crap than they were of McCarthy and Communist bating. It could be a huge win. In some ways liberalism biggest crutch is racism. I don’t think people understand how the racist label is used world wide by radicals. It could be a huge tool. Take their racism crutch away and beat them with it. Spread the word.

No - Ridicule them for their use of racism. Don’t call them that racist back. Did the leftists call us communists when we called them communists? No, they made fun of us for calling them communists but only after we over used it as a tactic.

If someone calls you a racist, ask them why. Are they calling you a racist because of your color/religion/economic makeup? Are you calling me a racist because I am a Catholic? Why do you hate Catholics so much? Are you calling me a racist because I am white? Why do you hate whites so much? Is it just pure hate or are you a racist? They did not call us communists because we were not. I am a capitalist, I cannot be a communist. I can be a racist and call you a racist though. The first is mutually exclusive, the second is not.

Liberals call conservatives racist for the political gain. That’s it, nothing else. To respond defensively using logic isn’t effective. It can’t work. They don’t care about logic or debate. It’s just name calling.
