    Thumper the Rabbit’s parents always taught him, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” If the Left’s self-appointed Omniscient Diviners of True Meaning have their way, conservatives in the public square won’t be left with anything at all to say. Ever. It’s a treacherous business exercising your freedom of speech in the age of Obama. As a public service, I present to you: “The 2012 Condensed Liberal Handbook of Racial Code Words.” Decoder rings, activate! — Angry. On the campaign trail this summer, President Obama has become — in the words of the mainstream Associated Press...
  • Newest racist dog whistle: “Chicago”

    08/30/2012 7:17:12 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 23 replies
    Via the Right Newz and Newsbusters, this one’s much easier than Lawrence O’Donnell’s tortured “golf = racist” theory last night. Just a few easy steps: Obama administration –> corruption –> “Chicago” –> black neighborhoods –> racism. Say this for Tingles: In a week packed with moronic media race-baiting, with his co-hosts at MSNBC locked in an endless game of dog-whistle oneupsmanship, he’s somehow managed to stand out. This is really his niche; the rest of the press will play racial code-word parlor games sporadically, when the GOP is on the offensive and the left needs a little extra help, but...
  • Post-Racial Politics? Even Romney’s lame birth-certificate joke provokes charges of racism.

    Huzzah, America, our centuries-old struggle with racism and bigotry may be coming to an end.This news was confirmed by none other than Michael Eric Dyson, a professor of sociology and the author of 18 books on race, racism, racial history, black culture, and black history. Suffice it to say, he knows a lot about prejudice and bigotry.Yet in response to Mitt Romney’s lame joke about not needing a birth certificate to prove he was from Michigan, Dyson proclaimed, to the approval of a collection of sage pundits on MSNBC, that Romney was resorting to “some of the basest, most...

    This afternoon on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, host Chris Matthews revealed a photograph of what he claims is the book that contains Republican racial code words. The photograph shows an old and worn leather bound book that appears to have several hundred pages. Matthews said the photograph was sent to him by a former Bain investor who told him the book pictured is the one that Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have used as a source for racial coding since the Reagan era. After showing the photograph Matthews exploded with emotion. “We now have the proof that exposes...

    KNOXVILLE — A civil-disobedience demonstration over local immigration policing resulted in three people being cited for obstructing a roadway; they were then released. A fourth person was arrested for having no identification. A group of about 50 protesters this afternoon blocked Gay Street adjacent to the City County Building, north of the Gay Street Bridge. One large sign read, "Racism hurts," and evoked Knox County Sheriff Jimmy "J.J." Jones' name. The protesters spanned sidewalk to sidewalk, blocking the intersection at Gay Street and Hill Avenue. Vehicles couldn't pass. The protesters said they are challenging anti-immigrant policies and racial profiling. Specifically,...

    In an exclusive one-on-one interview with Townhall, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus blasted MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews over their contentious on-air exchange earlier today.  Priebus said Matthews seemed "intent on taking the banner of being the biggest jerk in the room," described Matthews' delivery as "spitting," and disparaged the host's nightly program as "not serious" with an audience of "ten viewers:"   Guy Benson Interviews RNC Chairman Reince Priebus From TampaOn today's Morning Joe, Matthews accused Priebus and the GOP of engaging in racial politics to demean President Obama's reputation.  (We've addressed his two supporting "evidence" here and here).  When the...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be formally nominated this week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. It’s his first and best chance to tell his personal story and warm up before a national audience in prime time. (Did you know his real first name is “Willard?”). The GOP ticket is still trailing the competition in national polls. Republicans must make a tricky pitch: Convince voters that the reserved, wealthy businessman can “save” America from a personally popular incumbent. As the four-day confab kicks off in Florida, here are a few words to the wise men of the GOP....

    It didn't take long for liberals in the blogosphere to make backhanded and blatantly false accusations of racism against Congressman Paul Ryan, and you're not going to believe the rationale used for leveling the accusation. Apparently, Paul Ryan is a racist because.... Here's the scoop. Kelli Goff, the political writer for The Root, informs us that Ryan not only has a "Black sister-in-law," but that "his 'college sweetheart' was African-American" as well. And how, in heaven's name, do those facts make Ryan a racist? They don't, but that didn't stop Goff from using convoluted and almost comical 'reasoning' to make...

    If you thought the twin subjects of race and racism as they pertain to Barack Obama had finally wheezed their last when a black MSNBC host charged Mitt Romney with “n**gerizing” the president, think again. Ta-Nehisi Coates, a senior editor for The Atlantic, has a piece in the magazine’s September issue titled “Fear of a Black President.” There appears to be a deliberate ambiguity in that title inasmuch as the essay goes on to imply that the fear is Obama’s—that he has perforce walked on eggshells throughout his presidency because America is still not ready to accept a black man...

    Mitt Romney -- maybe he wasn't happy with the hatchet job by Trump and Sununu? By playing the racist "birther" card, America's first serious Mormon Presidential candidate has concluded that his best chance of winning the White House is to rally his Republican base including the Tea Party and hope for a few bad things to also happen. Speaking at a campaign rally in Michigan today before a crowd of a few thousand, the desperate Republican candidate said: “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place where both of us were born...

    Donald Trump: You’re fired! With his joke today that “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate,” Mitt Romney moved down to the lowest rung of the Republican Party – the racist demagogues who know better. (VIDEO AT LINK) I don’t forgive poor, isolated, ignorant whites their racism, but you can understand some of the cultural programming that embedded it. Romney knows Obama was born here. And he also knows exactly what he’s doing with his birth certificate joke: he’s telling the bedrock Republican reactionary base to pay no attention to that Todd Akin mess, Romney will cater...

    Today, on the circus that is called 'MSNBC', a Mr. Touré Neblett opined that Mitt Romney had used a racial code word by calling the Obama campaign 'angry'. In fact, he refered to this observation as the 'niggerization' of Obama. Let us leave aside, for a moment, the reports that aides to Obama have seen a level of anger towards Mitt Romney that they have never seen in his previous campaigns. Are the confirmed reports of this anger mere racial code-words on the part of Obama's trusted aides? We are asked to believe that this must be the case. So,...

    Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing. At a campaign event in Danville, Va., the gaffetastic veep dropped his g's and picked up a bizarre twang in front of an audience of black voters. Middle-Class Joe swapped his Home Depot apron for an A.M.E. preacher's robe and sermonized about the big, bad GOP. Romney's "gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules," Biden shouted. "Unnnn-chain Wall Street," he exclaimed with pulpit bravado. "They're gonna put y'all back...

    An animated opening segment on today's Morning Joe focused on the fallout from VP Joe Biden's remark to a largely African-American crowd yesterday that a Romney presidency would "put y'all back in chains." Washington Post editorialist Jonathan Capehart claimed Biden doesn't have "anything to apologize for." But earlier, Willie Geist opined that had Paul Ryan said such a thing, "there would be calls" for Ryan and Romney "to get out of the race." Taking the cluelessness cake, Mika Brzezinski found it inconceivable that Biden might have been playing the race card. View the video here.

    Vice President Joe Biden has clarified a comment he made earlier today in which he said presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney would "put you all back in chains" by unshackling Wall Street. "And I'm told when I made that comment earlier today in Danville, Virginia, the Romney Campaign put out a Tweet, you know Tweets, and went on the air, went on the airwaves saying 'Biden's outrageous in saying that - I think I said, instead of unshackled, unchained or - anyway, outrageous to say that, that's what we meant. I'm using their own words. I got a message for...

    David Axelrod, President Obama’s top strategist, believes that the reaction to Vice President Joe Biden’s comment that Romney will “put y’all back in chains” if he is elected. “Enough phony outrage from Team Mitt, while they pour millions into ads that blatantly, brazenly lie about POTUS record on welfare to work,” Axelrod tweeted. Biden, recalling that Romney wants to “unchain Wall Street,” predicted that such a policy would “put y’all back in chains” during an event in Danville, Va., which has a 48 percent African-American population. The Romney campaign condemned the comment. “After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled...
