No one is safe

... from the charge of "racism," not even the most hardcore of "progressives." Just check out what happened to cartoonist Ted Rall:

The grounds for censoring my cartoons from the site my drawing style are beneath contempt. Anyone familiar with me and my work knows Im not racist. My criticisms of the president are unrelated to his race, and to say otherwise in the absence of evidence is disgusting. Heres the cartoon in question. It should be noted that my editors at a variety of American newspapers, magazines and websites, almost all of whom are left of center politically, some of whom are black and many of whom voted for Obama, have never expressed the slightest concern about the way I draw the president.

Who did the censoring? The Daily Kos. Here's what they warned Rall about.

I suppose we can look at it this way: If "progressives" get their way eventually everyone will be racist ... and then term won't mean anything anymore. "Progressives" will hate that, but it will be all their fault.

When it comes to the charge of "racism," progressives will even throw their own under the bus.

The more I think about it, the more I think that your local moonbats modeled their site after Lost Kos. Don't they also ban people for dissenting with them, too?

The LGOMB bans people all the time, for the most spurious of reasons, yep. I find it hilarious that someone like Rall was banned -- he's soooo far left! It's like when the Obama campaign in 2008 implied that Bill Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro were racist for some of their comments about Obama -- so ludicrous as to defy description.

Yeah, I remember that! It's rather ironic, since now Obama and Clinton seem to be on semi-friendly terms. It's ridiculous. Like I said, when it comes to the charge of "racism," they'll throw their own under the bus. Remember when lefty comics legend Gerry Conway was attacked for "sexism" because of his comments at the PBS panel?
