Did you know that it’s racist to argue that Barack Obama should not be President?
We know this, because we’re told that:
- It’s racist to point out the connection between Barack Obama and a white man — who happens to be a terrorist.
- It’s racist to point out the similarity between Barack Obama and two white women — who are famous for being celebrities.
- It’s racist to point out the connection between Barack Obama and a black man — who happens to have run Fannie Mae.
- It’s racist to point out the connection between Barack Obama and a black woman — who happens to be his wife, and who said she wasn’t really proud of America until her husband was nominated.
I’m sick of the race card being played whenever someone criticizes Barack Obama. Making the Ayers connection is hardly a racist ploy, but that’s what we’re being told by the AP today. There is literally no argument you can make against this man that will not be countered by cries of racism.
Are you listening, McCain advisors?
I’m told that McCain advisors are reluctant to argue Democratic responsibility for the mortgage crisis, because they might be accused of being racists.
Wake up, McCain advisors. You are already getting accused of racism for making other perfectly legitimate points. Why on God’s green Earth would you hold back on one of the best arguments you can make because someone might play the race card?
Do you people even want to win?
That’s a serious question.
UPDATE: It is apparently also racist, or at least xenophobic, to raise any question about possible illegal foreign contributions to Obama. So says Marc Ambinder.
