When is Something Racist? When the Left Says It Is
Frontpage Magazine ^ | Jan. 10, 2012 | Mark Tapson

Posted on 01/10/2012 8:42:39 AM PST by Interesting Times

In a short piece in the “Culture Monster” section of the Los Angeles Times, Christopher Knight decries a satirical depiction of the First Lady based on a 1775 portrait of famed French lover of luxury, Marie Antoinette. The image replaces Marie’s face with Mrs. Obama’s, and the young queen’s puffy-sleeved left arm with a bare muscular black arm – clearly a poke at Mrs. Obama’s penchant for going sleeveless to show off her buffed guns. Her right hand points to a spot on a world globe, and the image caption reads “Choosing the next vacation.”

Obviously a pointed commentary on Michelle Obama’s high-end wardrobe and frequent lavish getaways such as a glitzy Spanish jaunt and her family’s recent $4 million, 17-day trip to Hawaii, right? If you think so, then you’re not getting the pic’s overt racism, according to Christopher Knight, and you’re probably racist yourself for laughing at it, according to the left.

The Democratic party’s undertow is physically destroying America and this is what the left does. We’re gettin’ sidetracked here folks, never ever allow the left any notion of moral superiority. The first lady can have expensive tastes, but remember her fan club in Highland, MI is removing its street lights.

It's typical leftist projection: Accuse the opposition of whatever you're doing.
They do it all the time.

Okay, that photograph has had a lot of help.

Mrs. Obama does not have slim, feminine looking upper arms.

Remember, when pronouncing the word “racist”, the “t” is silent.

When the left does it, it is the “araba spring”.

No, really, so long you are dumb and inferior enslaved to the government, the leftist will love you as part of diversity.

Now, a smart black man or woman is a ... (what did they call Condi Rice? ) black poodle for white people, or something to that extent.

Some may have prejudices but will accept proof of the contrary very much gladly.

True racists hate when the opposite color is smarter than they are.

... and these are both part of the “big tent” of democrates, black or white. Both of them, leftist blacks and whites hate their opposite color in most viral manners when they are smarter than liberals.

Case in point is the “all too humane” book of leftist hypocrite Stephanopoulos. There is not a weak “poor puppy” president he did not love, especialy when he was not greek, but white trash Clinton or ueber garbage fraud homo sand fly (I meant maggot, because flies are a rank above that piece of crap) Obama.

Thanks for the racist ping. It is a leftist curse-word that excuses all their attacks on those who disagree with them.

The Left’s accusations of RAAACIST! ( Hat tip, the little Gay Boyz at HillBuzz who coined the spelling... ) are just monkeys flinging poo.

People in the real world pay it no mind. They have better things to do...

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."

One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.

As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other,” the witness told Fox News at the time. “So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they’d been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.”

He said the man with a nightstick told him, “’We’re tired of white supremacy,’ and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, ‘OK, we’re not going to get in a fistfight right here,’ and I called the police.”...”

Thanks, Backhoe.

You betcha- my closest neighbors are a pair of Gay Gals and my next nearest? A family of what I call "my black Angels."

I'd do anything in the world for them- because they befriended me when my wife died.

But because I won't cheerlead for the Left's assorted narratives and causes, I'm the bigot.

To Hell with them- I try to take people as individuals, not special members of some special group.
