We're tired of it already

... the elitist MSM telling all McCain backers how "racist" we all are, that is. Today it's (surprise) Deborah Leavy in the Philly Daily News:

IN MEMPHIS last weekend, I made sure to go to the Civil Rights Museum. It's attached to the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King was fatally shot in 1968. Visiting it is an intensely emotional experience. Walking through the museum, I encountered a burned bus used by the Freedom Riders, films of police using firehoses to scatter black children, photos of the beatings on Bloody Sunday in Selma, Ala., and of black and white college students at a segregated lunch counter sitting stoically as ketchup was poured on their heads by angry white toughs.

It was a stark reminder that a vein of racism runs deep in America, a vein that John McCain has sadly tapped into by exploiting the fear of the "other" deeply embedded in all human beings.

"Who is Barack Obama?"

"Too risky for America."

"Pals around with terrorists."

"He doesn't view our country like you and I do."

These code words serve to remind white people that "That One" is different, not like us.

Isn't Leavy such a damn good liberal? See how she "expertly" weaves her "emotional" experience at that Memphis museum into an even better experience -- that of "progressive" race baiter? What better way to advance up the rung of "progressive" elitist punditry than to exploit the race of one of the presidential candidates at the expense of the other.

"Who is Barack Obama" cannot in any way be a legitimate question. No sir. Even though the mainstream media hasn't done its g**damned job and truly vetted who may be our next president. To ask this question is "racism."

"Too risky for America" isn't a legitimate statement even though much of what we've been lucky enough to actually learn about Obama makes him ... risky. He's stated he'd rather appoint Supreme Court justices who rule based on their feelings as opposed to what the Constitution says. His view on abortion rights makes him an absolutist on the subject. He said he'd meet with some of the world's most dangerous dictators without preconditions, yet it took him almost a year to actually agree to be interviewed by Fox News. But, to think all the above, in the mind of idiots like Leavy, isn't a legitimate concern, you see. It's ... wait for it ... "racism."

"Pals around with terrorists" can't be a legitimate concern either, even though Barack Obama has ... palled around with a terrorist. Bill Ayers has never, ever repented for his terrorist past; in fact, he has lamented that he didn't do MORE to help "bring down" the American government. Stanley Kurtz has dissected Obama's relationship with Ayers and has proven it goes far beyond any "mere acquaintance" that Obama has repeatedly claimed. But to bring up this point isn't to voice concern about such an association. No. It's "racism." And this doesn't even touch upon the lunacy that is Jeremiah Wright, for that takes us to the next point ...

"He doesn't view our country like you and I do." You spend some TWENTY YEARS in the church of a guy who rips the United States in every possible way imaginable ... a church which has advertised literature which includes treatises by Arab "intellectuals" who claim that Jews have developed an "anti-black and anti-Arab" bomb ... and one cannot raise the point that this is far from mainstream thinking? A church that espouses the so-called "black value system?" No. To raise this point is, again, RACISM.

The good thing about a**holes like Leavy is that the nation is absolutely weary of their tripe. I wonder if they ever paused to consider that it is THEY who are doing more real damage to race relations by invoking "racism" everywhere they turn. Y'know, I think they may indeed realize they do this. But they don't care. It's all about two things for these peons: 1) as noted, getting into the "in" crowd among the chattering class -- getting invited to those brie and wine parties on the Main Line, and 2) making out conservatives and Republicans as racial "villains" at any cost, no matter how specious the claim is.

(h/t to the insurmountable Gooch for the tip!)

UPDATE More asininity here.

Good sports page or not, I stopped buying that piece of crap years ago.

The Inquirer is soon to follow. I really can't take the constant liberal vibes thruout including its "news" stories.

I find it hilarious that it is viewed as racist to say, when talking to like-minded people, that the guy on the other side of the spectrum "doesn't view the country like you and I do."

HE DOESN'T...SPREAD THE WEALTH AROUND...PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION…IRAN…TAXES…etc. etc. WTF!!!???

He doesn't view the country as conservatives do! He, and those like him, view America as a bully and as an embarrassment. He wants us to bow down to the liberal elites of the world and to kiss their asses and beg forgiveness. He is scary to me. He really is...and it has nothing to do with his race.

The whole thing would be amusing if the stakes weren't so high.

When you see that old "Police Dog and Fire Hose" footage...

Remember that the men holding the leashes and the hoses are DEMOCRATS and the ones on the recieving end of that treatment were REPUBLICANS
