Racism Isn't About Race

Rather, it's about shoving moonbattery down our throats. This is why the Obama Joker poster craze and opposing ObamaCare are allegedly racist. Now we learn from MSNBC's Carlos Watson that calling socialists "socialists" is the same as using the forbidden N-word.

Partial transcript via NewsBusters:

[I]n some of those town hall meetings including the one that we saw in Missouri recently where there were jokes made about lynching, etc., you start to wonder whether in fact the word socialist is becoming a code word, whether or not socialist is becoming the new N-word…

Speaking of the patriots who protested at that Town Hall meeting in Missouri, one of them was denounced with the N-word while getting severely beaten by union thugs. Mark Steyn weighs in:

Gotta love this "post-racial America": Democrat union heavies can beat up a black guy using racial epithets and leave him in a wheelchair unable to speak — and happily (unlike, say, a black professor being asked for picture ID) it's not "symbolic" of anything at all. Not a Sharpton in sight to speak up for him: Mr. Gladney's only shot at fame is an entry in The Guinness Book of Records under "Least Famous Black Hate-Crime Victim In America."

Imagine this scenario if the union goons were patriots and Gladney were a moonbat. The media coverage would blot out every other story for 6 months. When the smoke cleared, we would learn that Obama had abolished private property.
