The left has turned into a sad parody of itself. While liberals have long crusaded for the right to play the race card anytime and anywhere, the sheer number of issues that invite shouts of “Racism!” is purely mind-boggling.
Police doing their job effectively? They’re racists. Police not policing an area effectively? They’re ignoring the black community and are racists.
Teaching American history, that’s racist.
Insisting that all lives matter, that is most-certainly racist.
Do you believe that it is wrong to segregate a school based on race? Oh, boy, you better believe that makes you a racist!
Got a good job? That is because of your privilege and that, my friend, is racism.
Insisting you’re not a racist, that is a “microaggression” and it’s incredibly racist.
And, of course, opposing Barack Obama, the first biracial president- that is a level of racism unseen since the days of Jim Crow, you filthy bigot!
According to liberal morons Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg of “The View,” Republican promises to stall on confirming a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently-deceased Antonin Scalia is a form of racism because the Republicans are refusing to rubberstamp the picks pitched by President Obama, the first president of color.
The duo griped about Republicans wanting to thwart Obama’s radical agenda and Behar insisted that they oppose Obama “no matter what he does.”
She’s correct. The current method of operation in Washington is for Republicans to oppose the radical and damaging agenda items pushed by President Obama… until the GOP establishment caves and insists that they had “no choice.”
Of course, to liberal mouthpieces like Behar, the only factor could be Obama’s race. It certainly has nothing to do with the havoc he was wrought upon this nation in such a small amount of time.
Behar warned that Republicans should be careful what they wish for, saying,
“And you know what happens when then don’t – when they’re just – just split like the way they are? The lower court – whatever the lower court decides – you know this, right? It stands. Which means that nothing gets done for another year and then next year we have to wait until they pick another person. And you know what, Republicans? Be careful what you wish for because if Hillary Clinton gets in you’re going to have even more lefties on the court.”
Goldberg and Behar joined in on a gripe-fest and the exchange went thusly:
BEHAR: “It’s almost like they’re not being patriotic, it seems to me. It’s like, this man has had so much [indecipherable] from this Congress, it’s outrageous. And I have to say it – I know it’s not popular to say it – but his color has something to do with it. I don’t care.” [….]
BEHAR: “I’m saying that they’re racists and it takes a white person to say it. Everybody knows black people believe that.”
GOLDBERG: “I can say it. But you know what? They are racist, but they have always been. The story I just told you about [indecipherable] Marshall, or about President Johnson trying to make stuff go through, and the abstraction that he got because people felt we are not worth it. But you know what? We are here and he is going to decide. He will decide along with you all and you will just have to deal with it. You’ll just have to deal with it!”
It’s amazing that Behar would believe that lashing-out at Obama’s critics by labeling them as bigots is an “unpopular” belief. It’s incredibly popular. Hell, it’s practically the only go-to method of defending the president’s increasingly-radical agenda left anymore.
I wonder: considering that the leading candidates in both parties are non-minorities, will white people soon be able to dismiss any legitimate criticism of our next president from a political opponent of color as “racist”?
Unfortunately, I suspect that that is a privilege reserved only for minorities.
