New Lefty tactic: Geography as bigotry

It isn't enough that among the nutty Left opposition to racial quotas is "racism," denunciations of radical Islamic terrorism is "Islamophobia," and opposition to illegal immigration is "anti-immigrant." Now, mere geography can be used to label one a bigot.

Case #1 (emphasis mine):

I see by the papers that the Republicans want to make an issue of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in the congressional races this fall: Would you want a San Francisco woman to be speaker of the House? Will the lectern be repainted in lavender stripes with a disco ball overhead? Will she be borne into the chamber by male dancers with glistening torsos and wearing pink tutus? After all, in the unique worldview of old elephants, San Francisco is a code word for g-a-y, and after assembling a record of government lies, incompetence and disaster, the party in power hopes that the fear of g-a-y-s will pull it through in November.

Oh, yeah! As if there isn't any number of other items on which to battle Pelosi, but no -- "making her an issue" is a "secret code" for ... HOMOPHOBIA!!

But wait, it's gets better. The San Francisco Chronicle's Jon Carroll (ironically proving that by his mere geography that lefties are allowed to spew intolerance!) believes that President Bush's usage of the term "New York" is code for anti-Semitism (my emphasis):

Also, the name of the New York Times contains the word "New York." Many members of the president's base consider "New York" to be a nifty code word for "Jewish." It is very nice for the president to be able to campaign against the Jews without (a) actually saying the word "Jew" and (b) without irritating the Israelis. A number of prominent Zionist groups think the New York Times is insufficiently anti-Palestinian, so they think the New York Times isn't Jewish enough.

OK, Bush is "anti-Semitic" by his utilization of the term "New York (Times)," yet prominent Jews think the Times is too "pro-Palestinian"?? Let's see who figure that out, considering the Bush administration has been rock-solid in its support of Israel during its five-plus years.

Yes, this geographical bigotry from the left has gone too far!! They should take that tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading, Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs!!!

Well Jesse Jackson did refer to New York as heimie-town. And we all know what a crazed right-winger he is...
