I just have no idea why we try to hide it anymore my fellow wingnuts. I mean, the jig is up (racist!) and it's as clear as black (racist!) and white. We are racists to the extreme. Oh no, we are too damn smart to do it overtly, we do it covertly so no one can figure it out. Or so we thought!
The geniuses at MSNBC seem to be on to us, especially Lawrence O'Donnell. No, we can't outsmart that guy, he's really on to every little attempt we make at a racial jibe. Check out what Sherlock O'Donnell figured out along with his counterpart Mr. Bashir:
MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?
LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –
BASHIR: Lawrence — don’t you think — don’t you think that what he’s really trying to do is to suggest that the president is not paying attention to the central issues that come with the responsibility he has? Is he really – Mitch McConnell really making a connection with Tiger Woods who, of course, has become infamous for chasing various cocktail waitresses around Las Vegas and so on?
O’DONNELL: Martin, there are many, many, many rhetorical choices you can make at any point in any speech to make whatever point up want to make. If he wanted to make the point that you just suggested and I think he does want to make that point, they had a menu of a minimum of ten different kinds of images that they could have raised. And I promise you, the speech writers went through, rejecting three or four before they land order that one. That’s the one they want for a very deliberate reason. That — there’s – these people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can find in every one of these speeches.
BASHIR: You really believe that about Mitch McConnell?
O’DONNELL: I know these people are insensitive. I know the speechwriters are insensitive. I know the way they work. They do not have the same sensitivity level that other speechwriters do. But when you get to the Tiger Woods reference, there were people in the speech writing room, I know this, without a shadow of a doubt, who said wait a minute, do we really want to go there? Do we really want to go to Tiger Woods and the vote in the room was yes, we do. Mitch McConnell agreed to do it.
BASHIR: Wow. Things are getting lower and lower by the day.You see how that works, one liberal asshole looks with his special racism-spotting glasses and sees the minority leader of the Senate comparing Obama to another black man (or in Tiger's case: Cablinasian) so it was super surely, most-definitely racist! Plus, said Senator is from Kentucky and we all know how racist they are down there, right?
Seriously, can anyone look at the discussion above and actually believe that it aired on a national news channel? Granted, about 3 people watch at any given moment but it is solely owned by NBC now and you'd think that they would have some professional integrity, right? I mean, NBC, the peacock. You'd be wrong however because the lefties over at MSNBC decided to talk over all the minority speakers at the convention. Mia Love, Artur Davis, Ted Cruz, why is MSNBC so racist that will not allow black people on their network?
But it doesn't stop at NBC, there are racist finders everywhere if one just has the special Lawrence O'Donnell dog-whistle hearing aid and race glasses. How about this non-racial racist incident.
Making up racist incident out of whole cloth is fun to report on but reporting on actual racist incidents is really not as good.
Damn this is going to be a really long election and one can only hope that people start focusing on the facts and can pick through this garbage the media keeps throwing out there to keep the coverage about anything but Obama's record.
