We’re Sick of Liberals Playing the Race Card!

Posted on September 17, 2009. Filed under: Conservatives, Liberal Idiots, Media Bias, Obama, Politics, Reverse Discrimination |

I am so sick of liberals playing the race card. It is a pathetic attempt to silence any dissent of Obama by calling the dissenters racist. They know that in the past if you called someone a racist it immediately shut down the conversation because people were so scared of the label. Their tactic is to scare people so much that NO ONE EVER disagrees with Obama.

Well, I refuse to accept their false label. I am NOT a racist and I will not be bullied into staying quiet just because they play the race card. I am very passionate about politics and where this country is headed, and it has nothing to do with a person’s color. I spoke out adamantly against Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, John Edwards and numerous other politicians whose policies I disagree with, yet now I’m called a racist if I disagree just as strongly with Obama. It is ridiculous!!!

And what about the conservative African-Americans who disagree with Obama??? Are these people supposed to be racist also?

The truth of the matter is that the ones calling us racists are actually the racists themselves. All they can think about is color! When Bush was in office, some of these very same people were bashing him and I never said they were doing it because he was white. Why is it that they can say they voted for Obama because he is black and they’re not called racists?? If I said I only voted for Bush because he was white I would never hear the end of it. So how can they get by with it?

Obama said he was going to unify this country regarding race, when in reality he and his followers are dividing it even more! Color is the only thing they focus on. Can’t we just talk about the issues?? Probably not, because, apparently, they didn’t vote based on issues, they voted based on color. I would bet most of them wouldn’t know the first thing about the real issues.

What’s going to end up happening is that this bullying ‘racism card’ ploy is going to backfire on them. People will only put up with being wrongly accused for so long before their attitudes actually do start to change, and at that point we will start getting bitter towards our accusers – NOT because of their color – but because of their own racism.

I’m tired of being discriminated against and wrongly accused just because I’m white, so I say to them “Stop your racism!”

The two excellent articles below address this race issue very well.

SO … NOW WE ALL KNOW THIS IS JUST ABOUT OBAMA’S RACE

By Neal Boortz

And just who didn’t see all of this coming? Come on, folks! Having you been paying attention for the past 30 years? In virtually every state and community in this nation liberals have been blaming racism for any failure, miscalculation, controversy or outright act of corruption by black elected officials. There has been a standard operating methodology in place for all of the 40 years I’ve been doing talk radio:

1. Black citizen elected to office.

2. Black official runs into opposition to policy objectives or has a problem with corruption.

3. Black supporters and liberals blame the problems on race.

One-two-three. This scenario has been played out so many times in modern American history it would have been impossible to keep count. Now a black man has become president. Some fools thought that this would help our country move beyond racial division. Well — perhaps it would have, if only evil white people had been smart enough not to object to anything this man might propose. But it didn’t work out that way, so now the left and the media are finding racists under every bed, behind every utility pole and on every street in America. Newsweek Magazine even ran a totally absurd story about racism in babies … putting a picture of a white infant on the cover with the title “Is your baby racist?” Read that story and you’ll find that the authors think that it would be horrifying if a white child were to ever express pride in being white.

Last year, before the election, some of us predicted that if (or when) Barack Obama became president that this would happen. We said that every time his policies met with opposition the left would start screaming racism. So what happened when we said that this would happen? Well … you guessed it. We were called racists. You just can’t imagine how surprised and shocked we were.

So .. here is what Jimmy Carter, Bill Moyers, Hank Johnson, much of the Washington and New York press corps, Newsweek Magazine and the brilliant thinkers on the American left would have you believe of Americans right now:

• We would be more than willing to welcome cap-and-trade with open arms, even if we paid a thousand dollars or more extra every year for our energy use, if Barack Obama were only white.

• We would be dancing in the streets celebrating the dawning of government control of our health care if only Barack Obama were white.

• It would be just dandy if government bureaucrats rationed health care for our parents, as long as the president is white.

• We would jump at the chance of the government owning ALL of the auto manufacturing companies .. not just General Motors … if the president just didn’t have dark skin.

• We would applaud those ACORN workers giving tax avoidance advice to a pimp and his prostitute if the workers hadn’t been black.

• Most Americans – even ones that don’t pay income taxes now – would be more than willing to give 70% of everything they earn to the federal government when asked … so long as they are asked by a white president.

• We would have been thrilled, I tell you … THRILLED to have all of those Islamic goons being held at Guantanamo be not only released, but sent to be school resource officers at our local government schools, if only a white president put that plan in motion.

• It would be OK if a white president stood back and allowed Iran to build its coveted nukes … we’re only unhappy about that because a black president is doing it.

• Deficits? We don’t care about deficits! Make our children and grand children and great grand children pay through the nose for our president’s spending habits … just so long as the president isn’t black.

• Government pork? Like we actually care? Look … you folks in Washington can spend all the money you want – how about more studies of the mating habits of Polish Zlotnika pigs? – just make sure it’s not a black president who signs the spending bill into law.

• We wouldn’t care if all illegal aliens were counted twice in the next Census … just so long as the president isn’t black.

• Those Black Panther thugs who threatened voters in Philly? The ONLY reason we’re upset that they were given a pass is because Barack Obama is black.

• Every single member of the president’s cabinet could be a tax cheat as far as we’re concerned … just so long as the president is white.

• Forced unionization? Bring it on! We love card check! We love the idea of union goons threatening and intimidating workers to sign a card saying they want to belong to a union! What we don’t like is that a black president is pushing this idea.

• Single-party talks with that Gargoyle that runs North Korea? It’s about time we legitimized that little pipsqueak. We’re only mildly upset here because the person who is doing that happens to be black.

• More regulation of the finance sector? We could care less! For all we care you can nationalize the banks and decree that only the government can make home loans .. .and you can even apportion those home loans on the basis of race if you want to … just so long as the president is white!

• Minimum wage? Like we care about that? Raise it to $15 an hour if you want! Just give us our white president back.

Yeah .. the moonbat left really has us figured out, don’t they?

The Racism Card

by Cal Thomas

When Barack Obama was elected president of the United States, some suggested that race played a factor in his success. People “wanted” to elect a black man president because of our history of slavery and the denial of civil rights for so many years to African-Americans. It is never “racism” to vote for someone because he is black. It is only racism to oppose the policies of a black Democrat.

As the president’s approval ratings fall and rise and fall again, some of his supporters in journalism and politics are returning to days of old when the label “racist” could end any discussion and force the accused either into stunned silence, or groveling repentance. I suspect the tactic won’t work this time because Obama supporters will have difficulty explaining how a mostly white country could elect a black man president last November and ten months later become a racist majority.

Racism has always been a one-way street for the Left. When Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court, some liberals called him a “handkerchief head negro” and an “Uncle Tom.” According to liberal doctrine, black people can never be racist because they are members of a victim class created by white liberals as a kind of modern plantation to keep blacks voting for liberal Democrats.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, African-American like President Obama, grew up in Birmingham, Ala., at the time of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing by members of the Ku Klux Klan, which killed some of her friends. She has more “street cred” than others who claim to have it, but she got no points from liberal Democrats when she ascended the ladder of power and influence. It was the same with Colin Powell. The Left strongly criticized Powell for adding credibility to the claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction thereby winning U.N. approval to use force, if necessary, against the Iraqi dictator. Were those who opposed Powell racist? Using the formulation now being applied to President Obama that opposition to any of his policies — from health care, to record amounts of debt — constitutes racism, they were.

The polar opposite case could be made that, despite his race, President Obama is being treated just like any other politician, which proves he’s being treated equally. He is getting the same heat every president gets, sooner or later. The president’s race would be a factor only if Americans shied away from criticizing him because of it. That they are not is a triumph of Martin Luther King Jr.’s hope that people be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Some opinion polls show that Obama’s character is being judged and found wanting by a rapidly growing number of Americans, at least a small percentage of whom are black.

With Democrats controlling all three branches of government, including significantly wide margins in Congress, isn’t there a better explanation than racism for why the president is having difficulty with some of his proposals? If racism is the cause of his difficulties, there must be many congressional Democrats who are racists, because they have the power to enact the president’s agenda, but some are reluctant to do so.

The Pew Research Center has noted a 10 percent drop in Obama’s approval ratings, which includes a 3 percent decline among blacks. As black conservative columnist Star Parker has written, “If we assume this reflects the 16 million blacks who voted for Obama last November, a three-point shift means there are about a half-million blacks who now have buyer’s remorse.” Are these black Obama voters racist?

There is a better explanation for the growing opposition to President Obama. It has less to do with his ethnicity than it does his credibility. Character, after all, is colorless.

Name calling is a logical fallacy (the ad hominem). It is used as a ruse by fools who often lack a reasonable response to an argument. Its purpose is to thwart discussion, not increase knowledge or understanding among the civilized. It is only effective if you allow it to be. A curt reply such as “If you can offer nothing of substance to this discussion, please shut your pie hole and listen” is a tactic that I find to be effective. However by reflecting on the charge and (even worse) positing counter examples only dignifies the ruse. There is an old saying: “Never argue with a fool. Soon no one will be able to tell the difference.”

I really hate to say this but I really belive if you widdle down the ranks of the black caucus, it would help cut down this race baiting problem that is holding America hostage.

Its that black caucus that is fueling this.

AMEN!!!! SaY it like is. I’m with you all the way. They are the ones keeping racism alive to use as a tool.
