Post-Gazette Applies the "Assimilate or Be Called a Racist" Strategy

Obama Nation's strategy of caricaturing any opposition as "racist" is on ignoble display in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which throws an unseemly tantrum over O'Bigot's expected drubbing in West Virginia.

Shrillary's undisputable observation that working class white people aren't going to be enthused about voting for an arugula-munching black supremacist are depicted as an attempt to pander to alleged Dixieland racism, as if West Virginia were part of the Confederacy, and not a state explicitly created to split off from the South. Comparisons to Jesse Jackson are "coded speech." The childish looks of horror that contort Chris Matthews' huge yellow head whenever someone fails to kneel at the altar of Obamamania are confirmation of the racist iniquity of those who would resist assimilation.

Sneers the PG:

So, tonight the polls will close and Mrs. Clinton will have easily collected 99 percent of the white vote in West Virginia. She will crow about her electability in a smug but meaningless victory speech on a stage featuring dozens of "hard-working Americans, white Americans" standing behind her waving flags. […] While no Confederate battle flags will be visible, they will feel it in the air. Mrs. Clinton's greatest victory will be a triumph of the kind of identity politics that makes a nation smaller.

No mention is made of the 99.9999% or so of blacks who support Obama. Remember, supporting him because he's a mulatto is transcending race.

The funny part is that Obama is hardly unique: very few blacks in America are wholly black in ancestry. I taught students from sub-Saharan Africa, and the difference in skin color between them and the average black American is striking.

Too bad Obama is like those aliens in Star Trek who were black on one side and white on the other - I think they ended up killing each other at the end.

And, so it goes, that West Virginia, which split off from one of the world's most prosperous and best-run states, at huge cost, for the sole reason of standing up against slavery and for the rights of black Americans, is now, in addition to spending the last 150 years struggling economically on its own, branded "racist" in its entirety.

There is only one way to not be a racist in Obamaworld: vote for Obama.

So we won't vote for anybody that knows what arugula is?

I'll make myself forget, if you vote for me.

When it comes to the Democrat primary, there is really only one major difference between WV and the neighboring states: There is no major city in WV with a heavy black population.

Obama has won only a small handfull of counties in MO, OH, PA and IN. Those are the urban counties. The rural counties voted for Hillary by a wide margin across the board. Even Allegheny County, PA voted for Hillary in spite of 10's of thousands of race-based votes for Obama coming from Pittsburgh and some of the Mon Valley towns. But WV will be accused of racism over and over again by liberal journalists who don't know a damn thing about anything.

At this point, I think the Dimocrat Party should nominate him!

Then the Post-Gazette and other similar rags can rant how the rest of America has adopted Civil War era ethos and won't vote for Osama Obama. He will be unelectable.

Why is it so hard for Western and Central PA people to remember, not more than one generation ago, it was the Dimocrat Party, Leftoid fired-up EnvironMoonBats and Unions that killed the US Steel and Mining industry in the eastern regions.

Same short memory for the people in regions where the old US model of the Auto Industry was and continues to be destroyed by the same two root causes.

At the end of the day, even some CA OHS supporters I know are going back to Hillary and sorry for the way they voted.....

Obama is unelectabl because he has no substance. Not because of his color.

More Proof (if a picture and written legitimate authority still mean anything in this world) that Obama is a Racist and knew full well what his Pasture 'God dambed the US of KKK' Wright was all about.

Obama on the covers of many Trinity Church.....

I think more and more people are wising up to these shaming tactics from the chattering classes. They are so desperate to get their prophet - oops, candidate - in office that all they have left is to try to get the little people to believe that they need to vote for him to show how enlightened and smart they are. This is Marcuse's repressive tolerance at work!

Society has come full circle in 2 generations and it has becoming cutting edge and counter culture to stand up for traditional, Christian or Conservative values now.
