Killing discourse

From David P. Goldman at PJMedia:

“The liberals have redefined the term ‘racism’ to include any reference to obvious and undisputed facts that might reflect badly on ‘people of color,’ for example, the fact that countries like Somalia are hopelessly ungovernable whirlpools of corruption and chaos–just as Trump said. Because Somalis are non-white, the liberals declare, it is ‘racist’ to call attention to the fact that their country is a revolting mess. Of course, Somalia’s problems have nothing to do with the skin color of its inhabitants, but rather with Islamic fundamentalism—but to mention that is ‘Islamophobic’, and therefore also ‘racist.'”

Convenient, eh?

Race hustlers: put up or shut up

It’s the oldest ploy in the Left’s playbook: when you can’t win an argument, accuse your opponent of racism. Breitbart has a great comeback for the Black Congressional Caucus’ accusation of Tea Party racial slurs. If they prove their claim with a video or audio recording Breibart will pay $10,000. Otherwise… It’s a safe bet. If they could prove it, it would have been all over the Dem’s client media by now.

Racist for the Supremes

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life."

Charming.

Via The Corner.

MORE:  Wisdom from a commenter at Reason magazine: "Can we just get beyond pretending that SCOTUS appointments are about getting the ‘best’ person available for the job and instead are really little more than point-scoring political appointments for fellow travelers?"

UPDATE:  The inevitable Ann Coulter does a choice job of skewering Sotomayor’s alleged "empathy." Despite it all, I have trouble worrying about her. For one thing she’ll be too shrill to be a leader on the court, as Karl Rove explains. So the court’s second Hispanic is a racist. Did you imagine Barry could have a racist pastor for twenty years and really be a racial uniter and healer? Haw.

Elephant in the room

Well, Hilarity has proved the long-expected once again: working class whites are less likely to vote for Barry. Some see McCain’s age similarly disadvantaging. But the old media pummeled Reagan for his age in 1980, and we saw how well that worked. Barry’s problem is worse because few will talk about his disability, and if the old media follows its wont and lectures all of us about racism between now and November, Barry-the-racial-healer will be doubly wounded. It’s particularly silly when you see ninety percent of blacks voting Barry. So how can whites voting for a white be racist? Don Surber in WV has more.

UPDATE: Hoodwinked & Bamboozled. There’s always that ten percent. In this case it’s the ten percent of blacks not voting for Barry. One of them reveals a few of Barry’s secrets and lies white people wouldn’t know.

VDH on Barry

With the mainstream media fully in the tank for Barry, Victor Davis Hanson is worth repeating in toto:

The Obama Cult

I would say that about 90% of my current mail concerns things I have written about Obama—50% of it readers furious that anyone would dare question their messiah. I can accept that he is charismatic, means well, and has led a largely exemplary life, but cannot tolerate the charge that questioning Obama’s honesty and judgment in the Wright and related matters is somehow “racist.”

Let us remember: we were once promised that two liberal Democratic candidates would run a clean campaign in which the racially transcendent Obama would not, well, inject race. Almost a year later here are the sad facts—and they have nothing to do with the ‘right wing freak show.’ Note well:

1. Blacks are now voting 90% along racial lines against a white liberal wife of our first “black” President.

2. The liberal African-American transcendent candidate attributed racist views to his own grandmother who, he said, is “a typical white person,” and on a morally equivalent plane with the racist Rev. Wright.

3. Obama has smeared the white working class as xenophobic and nativist, racist in their distrust of the ‘other’, and hopelessly clueless in their clinging to guns and religion.

4. Then there is Rev. Wright: praised in Obama’s memoirs and in set speeches, and by his donations and 20-year church attendance, the Right Rev. nevertheless is on record slandering America, Jews, Italians, whites, et al.

5. In response, Obama at first defends him (“not particularly controversial”) , then as more hatred comes out, suddenly desires to give a transcendent speech on race (odd timing) in which he contextualizes Wright’s racism, and suggests right-wingers are smearing him by replaying these “snippets.”

Then Wright himself corrects Obama in a press conference, by assuring the liberal DC press corps that his hatreds are not taken out of context, but reflective of his odious views (race determines brain chemistry, Farrakhan is an historic figure, our government is giving blacks AIDs, etc.)—completely undermining both Obama (now in Wright’s view a mere “politician”) and the scores of African-American intellectuals, ministers, and professors who on the air for two months excused Wright by defining down Martin Luther King, quoting black liberation theology, citing Wright’s great works, and suggesting we are racists to demand explanations.

Enough said. Ethics and integrity call for pointing all this out. The real amorality belongs to all those who excused the racialism, gushed over Obama ‘context’ speech, and simply accept that a President of the United States need not meet the same standard of racial tolerance that others must adhere to.

Try all of the above with McCain or Clinton and see how long they would last.

Not to mention a pre-nomination, "informal" contact with the terrorist group Hamas. Talk about chutzpa. Meanwhile, Barry’s flip-flops begin. I thought he’d at least wait until after the nomination.
