An optimistic view

In our view, cries of racism are becoming more intense because they are becoming less effective. Obama is in political trouble not because he is black but because he has done a poor job as president. We will hear a lot about the scourge of racism between now and November, in part because his supporters need to blame somebody other than him for his failures of leadership and in part because they hope that black fear and white guilt will help him to win re-election. In the absence of the latter outcome, things ought to calm down after the election. James Taranto/WSJ

Conservatives have been saying this from the get-go: calling us racist is a pure and simple bunk argument when you have nothing else to argue. And they have nothing else to argue in defense of this president. Every single thing comes down to race to these people on the left.

On Father’s Day, Michelle Obama called her husband “the coolest dad ever” but let a conservative call him “cool” and it’s a code word for racism. Everything uttered by a conservative is code for racism, according to the left. It’s not possible to be politically correct ENOUGH with these people.

On the other hand, they are quick to call the GOP the party of “old white men” and no one holds the racism mirror up to them. That is a testament to how conservatives versus leftists think. Those on the left have a preoccupation with race and in pure Alinsky fashion, it’s their primary, constant battle cry. Even leftists who know nothing about Alinsky know that race (as well as feminism) is and always will be a cause they can pull out and try to beat the rest of us over the head with and we will back off and back down because who wants to be called that?

The bright side is that it no longer holds any impact for most of us. Call me a racist and it makes no difference to me because you don’t’ know me, my family make up or who my friends are. It only shows the ignorance of the name caller, nothing more.

Godwin’s law with a new twist: every conversation will devolve into racist name calling. From Wikipedia: [Godwin’s law] states: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”[2][3] In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes some comparison to Hitler and the Nazis.

Just change the words Hitler and Nazi to race and racism and it’s Godwin’s law, although most of us also know that being called a Nazi or Hitler is another one of their tactics.

But the more of us who recognize this, and by most indications most of us do recognize it, the less impact the left’s racist argument will have.

    I get very disheartened at times Roxy, especially when I hear it’s going to be a “close” election. For the life of me I cannot understand how anyone can vote for Obama. He should be ran out of the White House so damn fast it would make his black/white head spin!

      Never underestimate the power of stupidity. 🙂

      I don’t think it’s going to be that close, Steve. I think it could be a landslide for Romney. The more I read and hear the more I believe it. The media is trying to make things sound like things are better for Obama than they are. Don’t buy into that, doll!

        I think you’re right Roxy and AFVET. I have great difficulty getting past the fact that people will actually vote for this freak again … it’s like this guy is wasting this nation and alot of folks won’t do any thing.
        Anyway I hope you guys and gals have a good Sunday.

    Roxy, the last paragraph nails it.
    They know that they are up against a force to be reckoned with.
    That force is common sense, and Patriotism.
    The Love of this Great Country and the desire to defend Her Honor and Her Principles from the tyranny that is on our doorstep.

    The Tea Party Movement has said ‘enough is enough’.
    We the People are aware of what is going on and our patience is gone.

    The progressive left wing wackos have been successful in the siren song they sing to lure the ship of America ever closer toward the rocks.

    No more, not this time.
    They put all their cards on Obama, and everyday they tip their hand a little bit further due to the common sense of the people that are paying attention.
    They hitched their ship to a fool’s dream, and now they’re going to have to pay.
    We the People will survive, We are America.

    God Bless America.
