Skip to comments.Once Again, MSNBC Dismisses Obama Criticism As Thinly Veiled Racism

Following Newt Gingrichs second-place performance in the Florida Republican Primary, MSNBCs 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 Obamas policy failures while in office. He referenced the presidents 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
“Dog whistle racist codes”
Damn. How I’d get to 58 years and miss THAT?
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,
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.
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.
The charge: The Obamas take too many vacations. The counter charge: Do you be sayin that blacks be lazy?
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!
