NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 06/16/2012 6:05:58 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

A Politico reporter has suggested that racism was behind Neil Munro's questioning of President Obama at the White House yesterday. Saying "it's very, very difficult to place race outside of this context," the Politico's Joe Williams claimed racially-motivated direspect of PBO is part of a pattern among conservatives, citing Rep. Joe Wilson, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and the Tea Party.

Oh, brother. Joe Williams is the REAL racist here. People who see racism everywhere are, by definition, racists.

If you are a racist, racism explains everything.

If you DARE to question THE MESSIAH, or make him look bad in any way, YOU MUST BE A RACIST!!

If you question his questionable past in any way, YOU MUST BE INSANE!

I know it was a LONG time back, but when did we cede control of the language to the Radical Democrats?

Racist?

It was obviously “homophobia”!

I sooooo hope they keep this up. I talk with more and more people, of ALL colors all the time that are discovering how asinine this is. One of the things I’ve heard most is some variation of “What’s wrong with these people?”

It’s really a thing of beauty. In their quest to brand anyone disagreeing/questioning the Dems/Obama as racist, they are alienating their target audience and opening their minds to what the right has said for years.

And yes, this includes black people. The blowback is going to be epic.

“If you are against Obama, you are a Racist.” Better get used to that as you are going to be hearing it a lot between now and November. If Obama loses the election you are going to hear a lot more of that in the post election analysis. Just get used to it you “RACISTS”!

We need to start a betting pool. If Obama loses the election, how long do you think it will take Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and the anchors at MSNBC to say it was all about Racism?

Why would we expect more coming from a racist, himself? How does he explain the popularity of Col. Allen West or Herman Cain? Colin Powell held the same respect, until he came out of the closet as a liberal.

Who needs legislators and a Constitution when the boy King Obama can dictate Executive Orders to change what it means to be “an American”?

If you don’t register for the draft as a yute, do you still get government bennies?

Go ahead Mr Williams. Yank that cord some more. You might notice it's getting old and frayed, so if you yank it much more, it's going to finally snap off, and then what are you going to do?

I, for one, no longer care if somebody calls me racist, sexist, homophobic, or whatever.

Was it racist when a Code Pinko protester interrupted John McCain’s acceptance speech at the GOP convention in 2008?

Ah, Politico. The Obama campaign arm disguised as “objective” - well, except that their agenda is quite clear and obvious.

He’s simply a more erudite version of Malik Zulu Shabazz.

No, Obama’s dictatorial immigration policy is racist because it disproportionally favors hispanics.

The president is a racist.
