Once Again, MSNBC Dismisses Obama Criticism As Thinly Veiled Racism

Following Newt Gingrich’s second-place performance in the Florida Republican Primary, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Reverend Al Sharpton blasted the candidate for supposedly using ‘dog whistle’ racial codes in his concession speech.

During his speech, Gingrich laid out criticism of President Obama’s policy failures while in office. He referenced the president’s obsession with soaking up media adulation, particularly a recent stab at singing a line from an Al Green song at a fundraiser, rather than actually doing his job as president.

Maddow and Sharpton went off the deep end, accusing Gingrich of characterizing the president in a way that almost calls out to ‘minstrelsy’ simply because Gingrich said the President needs to lead the nation, not settle for being "entertainer-in-chief."

These people are just nuts. It’s really becoming very entertaining between Juan Williams saying that the words “Founding Fathers” and Constitution are racistt. We should start a list. Pretty soon, Republicans will just have to zip their lips.

The charge: The Obamas take too many vacations. The counter charge: Do you be sayin’ that blacks be lazy?

Why is it that all the white Dems are calling us racist. Ive not heard one of my black friends call me racist and they like Obama. Maddow is a racist, who makes her ruler of whose racist or not. Pisses me off

It’s typical of the racist liberal media. Every criticism of Obama is the work of Whitey.

I understand that Obama now wants to be addressed as,
Mr.Interlocutor.

Other wise known as MRIOTUS.

I guess Michele would be known as FLIOTUS.

What happens when he is voted out of office this November? Will they claim racism there, too?

The folks on the left appear to be the only ones who are hearing the “dog whistles.” Perhaps that means that THEY’RE the racists.

You missed that because, without even knowing it, you’re a racist.

It is amazing to me that anyone would listen to a race baiting Negro who never worked a day in his life and a Bull Dyke Lesbian with an Adams apple.

The likely will be a lot more than that. Riots are a distinct possibility.

The more they say this, the thinner it gets.

It's already quite funny, and will become even more so as time goes on.

Is there anything these people can’t turn into some kind of racism?

It was predicted in 2008 that any criticism of Obama would be called racist, and that prediction was 100% correct.

And for Al Sharpton to criticize anybody for anything is laughable.

Whites voted him in and whites won’t vote for him again because they are sick of being told they are racists every single day.

LOL! Rachel Madcow is a virtual unknown. Did anyone else hear Rush’s show and he was talking about Jeopardy and a question came up about Madcow on there...and none of the contestants knew her or knew of her...lol!

How devasting...especially when she believes she’s having a major impact on world affairs...BWAAAAHHHHHAAAAA!

Many political words are similarly abused. The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies “something not desirable.” G. Orwell

Sub: “Racism” for “Fascism”

“Them racists in room service brung me soggy toast.”
“Then that racist bus driver tried to run me over.”
Reverend Al Sharpton

OK, here’s my theory:
When Democrats (liberals and their ilk, the MSM) use the word “racist” as a noun or adjective, all they are really saying is that they don’t like the person or thing they are applying the word to (something not desirable) while we think they are accusing someone (almost always one of us) of ‘a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race’ when in fact they are just saying, “Dayum!”
Of course they are doing violence to the language but, you know, children, drunks and lefties ...
So, from now on when this happens we just laugh and say, “If you’re arguing seriously, you just lost. If not, c’mon, get serious. If you can’t, we’re done.”

These are the Talking Points for Election 2012....if you oppose The Messiah and his Agenda, you are racist.

True Class Warfare is to be invoked, and be glad that gun and ammo sales have been at an all-time high the last two years....you're gonna need it when The Messiah goes down in flames, and the inner-city tribes go hostile!

I have sincerely tried to watch her show at least 10 or more times....just can't do it...meaningless, poorly thought out gibberish, delivered at a very unpleasant tone and pace.... even worse than "the View"

No longer have TV but never watched her when I had it. Something very odd about a woman who has the neck of an NFL player.

Hope this information got to her and that it did damage to her psyche...
