The terms racism and racist began to be common household words sometime after Civil Rights legislation was passed in 1964. Up until the current president was elected, the terms racism or racist generally meant the following: denigrating a person or persons because of their race or ethnicity; negative speech or actions about or against a person or persons relating to their race/skin color or ethnicity.
Fast forward to today and the definition of racism sure has changed to where just about anything any liberal says is racist or racism is racist or racism.
An article on townhall.com in April 2013, outlined 15 moronic things liberals call racism since Obama was elected.
- Criticizing the IRS: “Republicans are using the IRS scandal as their latest weapon in the war against the black man. “IRS is the new “N” word. Martin Bashir.
- Having a Republican National Convention during a hurricane: “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.” Yahoo News Washington bureau chief, David Chalian.
- Wanting to own a gun to prevent break-ins: “I am loathe to bring up what is in our head because we don’t like to talk about it so much. But on this particular day, on Martin Luther King Day, I think this needs to be said. That imaginary person that’s going to break into your home and kill you, who does that person look like?” Michael Moore
- Mentioning the Constitution or respect for the Founding Fathers: “The language of GOP racial politics is heavy on emphemisms that allow the speaker to deny any responsibility for the racial content of his message. References to a lack of respect for the Founding Fathers and the Constitution also make certain earl perk up by demonizing anyone supposedly threatening core “old fashioned American values.” Juan Williams.
- Calling Obama angry: “That really bothered me. You notice Romney said anger twice. He’s really trying to used racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.” Toure.
- Saying that Obama lies: “Surrounded by middle aged white guys, Joe Wilson yelled, ‘You lie!’ at a president who didn’t. But fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken work in the air: You lie, boy!” Maureen Dowd.
- Noting that Obama is privileged: “Spotlighting his elite education is tantamount to racial bigotry because it insinuates that ‘he took the place of someone else through affirmative action, that someone else being white.’” Jonathan Capehart.
- Saying that unions boss Obama around: “The Republican Party is saying that the President of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this President around. Does that sound to you like they are trying to consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that, of course, a black man can’t be the real boss?” Lawrence O’Donnell.
- Supporting voter ID: “If you go back to the year 2000, when we had an obvious disaster and saw that our voting process needed refinement, and we did that in the America Votes Act and made sure that we could iron out those kinks, now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally, and very transparently, block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democrat candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
- Saying, “I want my country back:” “Do you remember the teabaggers? It was just so much easier when we could just call them racists. I just don’t know why we can’t call them racists, or functionally retarded adults. The functionally retarded adults, the racists, with their cries of ‘I want my country back.’ You know what they’re really saying is, ‘I want my white guy back.’ The apparently had to problem at all for the last eight years of habeas corpus being suspended, the Constitution being (blanked) on, illegal surveillance, liked to on a war or two, two stolen elections, yes, the John Kerry one was stolen too. That’s not tin-foil hat time.” Janeane Garofalo
- Being fans of Herman Cain: “One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes White Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he’s giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me.” Karen Finney.
- Fighting for the Second Amendment: “I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests at heart.” Jason Whitlock.
- Republicans trying to keep Obama from being re-elected: “Look at, look, at the Tea Partiers, who are controlling the Republican Party…Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we can do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.’ It is a racist thing.” Morgan Freeman.
- Disliking the fact that Obama is President: “They can’t stand the idea that he’s president, and a piece of it is racism. Not that somebody in one racial group doesn’t like somebody in another racial group, so what? It’s the sense that the white race must rule, that’s what racism is, and they can’t stand the idea that a man who’s not white is president. That is real, that sense of racial superiority and rule is in the hearts of some people in this Country.” Chris Matthews.
- Disliking Barak Obama: “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barak Obama is based on the back that he is a black man, that he’s African American.” Jimmy Carter.
Here are some additional things liberals call racism up through the year 2016:
- Cheering for the Denver Broncos with white quarterback, Peyton Manning; instead of cheering for the Carolina Panthers with Black quarterback, Cam Newton.”
- Not eating turnip greens. (Actually, I was accused of racism for this many years ago).
- Asking somebody black what time they get out of church on Sunday (I was also accused of being racist for this years ago).
- A white person wearing his or her hair in dreadlocks (this is called “cultural appropriation”).
- Saying you don’t like somebody black who just happens to play for your team’s “hated rival” (Another one for which I have been accused of racism).
- You’re a racist simply because you were born with racist tendencies and you don’t cry yourself to sleep at night because you’re white.
- Saying “All Lives Matter.”
What’s sad is that liberals make this stuff up; yes, they lie, and they keep lying and keep hurling false accusations at those who don’t agree with them; forgetting that the freedom to disagree as to how we govern ourselves is one of our sacred rights.
Some conservatives attempt to thwart the accusations make by liberals by saying the following:
- But I have friends who are black.
- I don’t care what color his skin is, I don’t support his policies.
- But I supported Ben Carson in the primary.
- I patronize black-owned businesses.
- I like turnip greens.
- My favorite singer is black.
- I only dislike him because he plays for (blank).
Unfortunately, trying to illustrate by example that you’re not racist falls on deaf liberal ears. In fact, liberals will the turn things around and tell you that the only reason you supported Ben Carson is because it made you feel good, it make you feel like you weren’t really a racist.
Because the above won’t work with liberals, we have to try something else. Whenever, I ‘m accused of racism, I put it back on the liberal to point out what I’ve said or what I’ve written that denigrates blacks or any minorities because of skin color. And you should try this too. Hold their feet to the fire. Make them answer you.
Recently, I confronted two liberals online; one directly accused me of racism and the other shared a meme which indicated that white Christians hated President Obama and the first family because of the color of their skin. The liberal who directly accused me of racism apologized, but then turned things around and appeared to indirectly imply that I was a racist.
Which one of the above moronic comments do I think is the most moronic? What Morgan Freeman said about it being racist when the Republicans worked against Obama in his 2012 re-election bid. An opposition party opposing an incumbent in his bid for re-election? Why I never heard of such! (Sarcasm).
And what’s really said about liberals and their moronic suggestions of racism is that it covers up incidents of true racism that should be addressed, corrected, and possibly making amends.
