What dog whistles? The dog whistles that need re-tuning now that they're not even bothering to say "urban" or "welfare dependents" when they mean blacks. They just come out and say "blacks" now. Or try to sound PC with "African-American."

I find it really funny that this "piece" was written by an intern at so many different places:

In addition to being a Media Research Center News Analysis Division intern, Matt is a blogger/contributor at Misfit Politics, Resist 44, Right Wing News, and Conservative Daily News.

Cool blog, brah. Good luck getting a real job someday.

Of course, the Republican plan is to preserve via reform those very programs, which are doomed to insolvency without fundamental change to the current system.



In much the same way that Hannibal Lecter "preserved" Benjamin Raspail so that "he" would last for years.
 
2012-08-28 03:55:01 PM  
So to summarize:
- Sometimes people call something a dog whistle when it is not
- Therefore there are no dog whistles
- Those that say there are dog whistles are the real racists

That about sum it up?

I couldn't figure out what was so bad about Obama being "anti-Colonial" considering that our nation was somewhat founded by people who were anti-Colonial, but then I figured out it only meant anti-Colonial in the context of African colonies which really means Obama hates white people.

And that's pretty typical, right? I mean, if you hate black people, it's only logical to assume that they all hate you.

Yeah, but if you're going to sell someone shiat and call it Shinola then you've got to be charming. Romney is not charming like Reagan.

-The 'urban' vote
-Birth Certificate
-Muslim
-"Cocky, narcissist"
-Watermelon emails
-broken english from chinese woman on commercials

That you cannot see the racial overtones is not because they aren't there, rather it is because you are predisposed to be blind to them. There's a reason that not all republicans are racists, but all racists are republicans.

Rapmaster2000: Romney is not charming like Reagan.


Give him about a decade. He'll be bumping into things and forgetting where he is. Of course, he won't have charisma, but in the whole "old and senile" respect he'll be like Reagan. Hell, he already has corporations pulling his strings.
 
2012-08-28 05:27:03 PM  
Rick Santorum has been given the honor of making the non racist "welfare and those blah people" speech at the RNC convention. You libtards are your imaginary outrage.
 
2012-08-28 05:29:03 PM  
You start out in 1954 by saying, "N*gger, n*gger, n*gger." By 1968 you can't say "n*gger" - that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.
Romney/Ryan have reanimated the corpse of Lee Atwater to run their campaign.

The very moment anyone can explain to me why it's a bad thing to be "anti-colonial," I'll stop believing that means anything but "uppity negro."

Racism doesn't exist anymore! We just coincidentally want to make it harder for minorities to vote, want to establish Obama as a foreign other, and want to accuse Obama of removing work from BlackCare Welfare. Pure coincidence.
 
2012-08-28 05:34:50 PM  
I do like how the GOP keep getting called out for racism and the like, then complain they aren't really racist and the real racists are the ones seeing their comments as racist. The immediately afterwards they have to effectively say "psst! really we are racist" to their base just in case they get fooled into thinking they are RINOs.

Hey, they criticize George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, et al for their "anti-colonial" feelings too.

Don't they?

And we're supposed to judge Barack Obama by his father's beliefs.

George Romney released over a decade's worth of tax returns...Mitt Romney wouldn't even be here if Mormons had always been restricted to "marriage between one man and one woman"...but that's irrelevant. We really need to concentrate on the father that abandoned Obama at an early age.
