When things go badly for a Democrat, they do two things. (1) blame it on Republicans or (2) yell racism.
I knew it would happen (always does), just not this soon. They have overplayed their hand, and are acting more like dictators then public servants. With the help of their lap dogs in the media, the race card has been played.
“Liar” is now a code word for “Black” in the leftist thesaurus.
And now this….. Former President Jimmy carter said Monday: "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American. The president is not only the head of government; he is the head of state. And no matter who he is or how much we disagree with his policies, the president should be treated with respect."
This, from a man who, when he’s not validating the regimes of some dictator or disrespecting his fellow presidents while visiting foreign countries, is talking trash about America!
To suggest that a great deal of the opposition or to go as far as saying the majority of the opposition is based on racism is a clear political tactic designed to discredit and overshadow the genuine MASS opposition that has surfaced against the Presidents policies. Since when did protesting an unprecedented (and quite possible un-constitutional) expansion of the Federal government become bigoted?
I have friends of all political stripes, and I’ll be honest; I’ve never met a Racist Conservative in my life. I’ve heard that they’re out there and I’m sure that they exist, but much like a Great White Shark or a decent Joel Schumacher film… I’ve never seen one in real life. The truth is that a vast majority of Americans are fully on board with a post-racial America. The only problem is that conservatives seem to be the only ones to begin treating it as a reality. They continued standing for the same things that they always had (lower taxes, more power to the individual, smaller government, that constitution thingie, etc.), regardless of whomever was in office. They almost act, dare I say it… Color blind.
After Barack Obama was elected, Democrats knew that reconciliation was taking place, but decided to move things in the directly opposite direction of that. If one were to believe the little world that Democrats have painted to be true, one would have to assume that the United States today is as racist as it’s ever been. After all, when was the last time you saw tens of thousands of racists openly march through the streets of Washington?
Injecting race into the debate over critical issues facing American families doesn't create jobs, reform our health care system or reduce the growing deficit. It gives us no grounds for solutions. It only divides Americans even more.
Liberals, however, need ongoing racism to get votes. Racism MUST be alive for the Democratic party to succeed. After all, how can you promise people to fight an oppressive establishment if you’re the ones running it. Plus, it makes it harder to promise folks all of that awesome free stuff.
Realizing this, Democrats have decided to go on the extreme offensive. They’ve made the decision to create an atmosphere where any disagreement with the current president must undoubtedly contain some sort of “secret racial component.” Liberals don’t believe for a second that tea party protesters are a bunch of Robert Byrd-like Klansmen out there. No, the whole “race” card is a conscious/concerted effort to keep racism alive. The truth is that the general American public knows that dissenters are not racists, and the fact that the accusation is being tossed around more flippantly than ever is laughable.
Right now they think that their shtick is so cute that they’re unaware of the imminent political suicide they’ll be facing and that they may have their heads handed to them in the next congressional elections, just around the corner.
George Orwell once said: “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Is this where we are headed? This constant pulling out the race card is getting a little ‘old’. Like a magician who keeps pulling the same ol’ tired rabbit out of the same ol’ hat.
If the only tool in your toolbox is the race card – guess what – all your opponents look like racists.
