I think I’ve seen more race cards slapped down by leftist and liberal loudmouths in the last 48 hours than in the last 4 years.
Newt Gingrich just bitch-slapped Chris Matthews for saying that “lazy” and “welfare queen” is code for black. It’s Democrats who believe that and neurotically project that.
Rachel Maddow, abandoning any pretense of intellectual respectability, just pulled a similar stunt turned inside out. Something about how “hard-working” is a dog whistle for “white.”
The truth is that most Conservatives and economic libertarians believe that black people who are lazy are lazy and white people who are lazy mostly join the Liberal commentariat.
There have been a lot more jaw-dropping race card moments than that lately, but those two I just saw, so I remember them.
Forget what the media is saying about how close the election is. The Liberal/Left/Progressive establishment is gibbering in subliminal terror. They know that all they have is demogoguery. They’re seriously worried, Is it enough? They’re thinking, even if we all eat nothing but fiber from now to November, will Compost Mountain get high enough that nobody can see over it?
They don’t even believe their own bullshit. Their ideology doesn’t say they have to believe what they say. This gives them an advantage over Conservatives and economic libertarians who think that sincerity is part and parcel. Muslims call this disingenous attitude taqiyya. Liberal apparatchiks call this “staying on message.”
I went to dinner tonight with a good friend who thinks that demogoguery is more than enough to win in America. According to him, there is something deeply, morally, psychologically, probably irrevocably wrong with Liberals and, like kudzu, they are firmly in control. He thinks of Liberals like nearly all Liberals think about Conservatives and economic libertarians. He’s pretty much had it with their lying, shallow bullshit and thinks that they have moral and intellectual ebola and must be quarantined, and he may be right, but I’m not giving up. I know lots of Liberals that I love or like who have very important virtues and accomplishments.
He calls me Pollyanna, because I am usually more optimistic than he is about things in general. I call him Genghis Queef. Actually, I’ve never called him that. I just thought of it right now. Can’t wait to use it. The best part is the initials are GQ.
So, when you’re playing the last refuge race card this hard this early, it stinks of desperation. Talk about the failed policies of the past.
UPDATE 2016: Obama won. I was wrong.
