Think Republicans are Racists Now? Wait Until The Next Election.

The Latest.

Racial slurs--uttered by somebody else--makes you evil if you don't condemn them fast enough. Agreeing with somebody, about something else, that later or previously had used a racial epithet that liberals think you should have seen . . . makes you a racist, and you need to be tarred and feathered and, if in office, driven out of it.

It's not enough that these people run the country, control the congress, with control the Supreme Court, and own the auto industry and the banks. They want it all. Every last bit. Every last freedom you have? They want it.

Maybe Vice-Chairman of the Young Republicans, Audra Shay, really meant to say that she liked calling African-Americans a particular racial epithet. I don't know. But she didn't do it.

And you can miss a lot in a given thread of comments. If it happened on Facebook, any Facebook user knows that it's very easy to not see comments, which start getting hidden at a certain point, or posts themselves. Forget to click that little "Show all comments . . . " these days, and it can get you in trouble.

Anyhoo, they also cite "Barack the Magic Negro"--a Rush Limbaugh parody based entirely on the words of a liberal African-American journalist questioning Barack Obama's "authenticity" as an African-American--as an example of "fringe" Republican racism. But leave that little story about the origin of Limbaugh's parody out.

Because they want Republicans to be racists and Nazis--even when the liberals win, even when they are in charge of everything and overseeing the destruction of the Last, Great Hope of Capitalism, they still can't help themselves. Dissent cannot be tolerated.

They are insatiable.

So, look for a lot more of this leading up to the 2012 election. There will be hundreds, if not thousands, of stories of pockets of racism and racial epithets supposedly uttered by, or agreed with by, certain Republicans. There will be RINOs confessing that, yes, the Republican party has a long history of racism and still has a problem with a lot of racists, especially among the Christian Right, today.

If you thought the GOP was racist before, you ain't see nuthin' yet.

Mark my words.

Egads, Kevin. You're right, but who can stand any more of it? I think it might backfire.

I hope it backfires. In the long, long term I think it probably will--Thomas Sowell does a great job of illustrating how destructive racial preferences and prejudices of any kind are for countries and cultures. But often, the damage is done, and, historically, the cultures that have been moderately wealthy, and then chase out and persecute the Jews for being "too wealthy", end up destroying their economies and never make the connection. Zimbabwe's been doing it by taking all the property owned by white people and giving it to black people--mostly Mugabe cronies. The ethnic Chinese in Maylasia have always had the deck stacked against them but rather than emulate the work ethic and behavior of the ethnic Chinese, Maylasia has instituted all sorts of systems of racial preferences for native Mayalasians, which has been a detriment to the economy. And so on.

Overly emotional people like to believe in ghosts, Gaea and bogey men. Thus, it takes very little prodding and misdirection for them to believe John Edwards (the psychic) is talking to their dead aunt--no, grandmother, no, dog--and/or very little prodding to make them believe racist hicks in white sheets are hiding behind every Republican corner, waiting to thump you with their Bible.

The amount of outright lies about conservatives and Republicans from the left is insane--Orwell's Ministry of Truth insane. Lengthy articles about Republican sex parties the writer supposedly attended, all dreamed up while sitting in their underwear in a hotel room. The massive coke parties that Dubya used to hold--dreamed up by a guy who also told all his friends he was writing the new James Bond novels (and wasn't) and tried to kill his wife with a car bomb--but liberals ate it up. Dan Rather with the fake National Guard memos. Rush Limbaugh is constantly quoted as saying stuff he never said, as are so many Republicans, and the left is never called on it.

And they often aren't called on it by so-called conservatives and Republicans. So, I dunno. I think the Republicans/Conservatives = Racist Hatemonger meme is going to grow and grow and grow. And it may turn-off a lot of swing voters (good) but will cause more appeasing and spontaneous "confessions" and more Republicans and conservatives re-inforcing the falsehood that conservatives are somehow "racist" and "bigoted" all over the place, and they need to be "educated" or "brought into the fold". When the most racists people I know are liberals. And I'm not just talking about the "soft" bigotry of low expectations or the cynical manipulation of welfare-for-votes, either.


Sigh. Good to see you're still around, tho, Walker.


Hope your busy enjoying life while America marches towards becoming a quasi-socialist European economic quagmire. ;)
