Sockpuppet Friday—the “Now EVERYTHING is a Racist Term” Edition!

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engaged in sockpuppetry on this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

And remember, the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And for this week’s Friday Frivolity, Fast Eddie Schultz provides us with the latest reduction to absurdity in the hyper-racializaton of every single issue. Now even the term “break” is racist, somehow. I kid you not:

On his show last night, Schultz said that [Senator Jim] Demint, whom Cain has mentioned as a potential running mate, repeated an “old southern racist term when talking about defeating President Obama during the health care debate.” Schultz’s example? He quoted Demint saying that “If we are able to stop Obama on this [health care law], it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.” For clarity, Schultz repeated the offending line, “It will break him.”

Dr. James Peterson, director of Africana studies at Lehigh University, explained that “break” is a racist verb, “a term that was used to destroy, mentally and physically, slaves.” Accordingly, the Demint line demonstrated “how dark some of these racial discourses can be in presidential politics.”

Right, remember in Rocky IV when the Russian said to Rocky, “I must break you”? Clearly that was racism. And that Red Hot Chili Peppers song, “Breaking the Girl?” Racism. And when Linkin Park sang that, “every word you say to me… takes me one step closer to the edge and I’m about to break”? Racism. That Jennifer Aniston movie, “The Break Up”? Might as well be called “Birth of a Nation.” And can you believe that in the 21st century we can have a weekly show with a name as clearly racist as “Breaking Bad?”

Joking aside, what these morons want to do is reinforce racism, to expect us never to forget for one second that there is a black man in the White House, or think for one second that you can treat him just like any white person in the same position. And as I said the other day it is almost empirically untrue that opposition to the health care reform legislation was racist. I mean after all, a black president (Obama) accomplished what a white Southern president (Clinton) couldn’t. That’s not exactly a controlled experiment, but it is strong evidence that the opposition to the bill was principled, not racist.

And gee, if Herman Cain becomes President, will they constantly accuse his opposition of being racists, too? Something tells me they won’t, even when there is actually better evidence of their racism than there was among Republicans.

  1. So then where did the term break dancing come from?

  2. It’s gotten to the point where you can’t even satirize these idiots.

    Just had a conversation with a democrat, very liberal, about civil rights. I tried to convince her that this country had made progress. Only a few decades ago there were mainstream religions in this country that wouldn’t even let a black man preach. There were lunch counters that wouldn’t let a black man eat. There were murderers who wouldn’t let a black man vote!

    She replied by citing the Tea Party with an argument I couldn’t understand well enough to recite here accurately. Suffice it to say her head if full of paranoia, and she has no idea how grateful we should be for the progress our country has made.

    My point is that these modern day race hustlers are stealing the legacy of civil rights heroes.

  6. It’s simple. The lefties want to define any opposition to their ideas as racist. Since nothing racist can be found they invent codewords and dog whistles to make anything said against them race based.

    Without 90% of the African American vote they have no chance. They’ll do anything to get that 90%.

    Ken Hahn (add8ac)

  7. Calling my personal Jesus articulate is racist. Eloquent is racist too. But not clean.

    Fast Eddie is really good at typing teabagger racism to nearly any topic. It is a skill.

    Now if you will excuse me, there is a box of Twinkies and a case of pork rinds to attend to.

  10. Obama has zip/nix/nada to run on except the race card and the blame game. We can expect the usual suspects in the press to be his willing and compliant lapdogs once again. It’s gonna be an uphill fight to send this idiot back to Chicago.


    Jones (8d4954)

  11. It shows how deeply and subconsciously racist you are insofar as you feel compelled to defend yourself from my charge of racism. Your support of Cain proves how inherently racist you are too.

  41. No, Aaron. Not “racist”; it’s “cease and desist“.


    Grace Park (f7bd63)

  42. If you only vote for Herman Cain because he’s black, that makes you a racist. If you vote against Obama for a white guy that makes you racist. If you vote for Obama because he’s black, that makes you a good person, and not a racist at all. It’s simple when you just follow the party line.
