I’ve grown weary writing about liberal media bias as a topic on its own, because it’s everywhere, it’s accepted, and we’re winning despite it. But this self-admitted douchebag “Tommy Christopher” brings it to a whole new level, and that level is to be laughed at and ridiculed.
Let’s face it; Mediaite is a joke site. Like Politico and Buzzfeed, it is left wing propaganda disguised as news.
Today’s installment of “Christopher’s” ongoing series, “Criticism of Obama that hits the mark must be racist,” stars Mitt Romney’s recent campaign banner “Obama Isn’t Working.”
Because actual racist actions and statements are nearly non-existent in modern political discourse, and because the left depends on racially dividing the country to keep their political coalition of the imaginary dispossessed together, they have been forced to invent this concept of “Dog Whistles.” According to liberals, “Dog Whistles” are a form secret mind code used by racist politicians, who says seemingly innocuous things that are secretly racist in order to excite their racist supporters.
Well, unless that liberal is Barack Obama. If the liberal is Barack Obama, “Dog Whistles” are what Lolo used to call him in and let him know what was for dinner.
In reality, the people with race on their mind 24 hours a day 7 days a week are the liberals. That’s why they see race everywhere in everything.
What’s the Over/Under on the number of days until we see “Tommy Christopher” write that comparing Obama to Jimmy Carter is racist?
The slogan is a multiple entendre, but one of those entendres, intentionally or not, is evocative of a nasty racial stereotype about black men.
When I first saw the banner this afternoon, the multiple meanings were clear: President Obama‘s policies aren’t working, the Obama presidency isn’t working, President Obama…isn’t working, as in, doing any work. That’s not a nice thing to say about any president, but like it or not, it becomes a more loaded accusation when leveled at our first black president.
I would love to see the effective accusation that “Christopher” doesn’t think is “more loaded” when it’s aimed at poor, put upon Barack Obama.
Just to make sure he wasn’t seeing things through the distorted glasses of his white guilt fueled Obama love, “Christopher” went and asked noted race-baiter Goldie Taylor who, shockingly, saw the exact same thing.
One of the people I called was cable news fixture Goldie Taylor, who, upon hearing my description of the banner, said “Are you kidding me? You have got to be kidding me.”
She also noted the multiple meanings, and the unmistakable stereotype it evokes, but didn’t think it was intentional. “That’s what happens when you don’t surround yourself with a diverse array of people,” she said. “Maybe if Mitt Romney’s experience was more diverse, or the people he surrounds himself with, somebody would have looked at that banner and realized how it could be offensive to some people.”
Yes. Romney certainly needs to diversify the people he surrounds himself with. For example, here is his Chicago campaign staff.
Oh, wait. That’s Obama’s campaign staff.
