According to the A.P., calling Obama on his ties to domestic terrorists such as Sarah Palin has been doing — even white ones — is racist:
Whether intended or not by the McCain campaign, portraying Obama as “not like us” is another potential appeal to racism. It suggests that the Hawaiian-born Christian is, at heart, un-American.
Most troubling, however, is how allowing racism to creep into the discussion serves McCain’s purpose so well. As the fallout from Wright’s sermons showed earlier this year, forcing Obama to abandon issues to talk about race leads to unresolved arguments about America’s promise to treat all people equally.
Yeah, racism is anti-American, so leave Obama’s “God damn America!” pastor alone, you treasonist Republicans!
As for Bill Ayers, the last time I checked, that guy is white! How is pointing out Obama’s relationship with a white guy racist? Because obviously, any Obama criticism is racist.
Truth be known, this A.P. writer is racist, because he appears to assume that all terrorists are minorities. This is like assuming that all idiots work for the Associated Press. This of course isn’t the case… the rest of the idiots work for Reuters and CNN.
The part of the A.P. writer’s paragraph highlighted above in bold represents a major misconception about America that is found generally among the left. America does not promise to treat all people equally. America allows us the opportunity to live up to the best of our abilities — but — your results may vary.
The day we strive to treat terrorists and those who coddle them equally is the first day of America’s slide into oblivion — and that started quite a while back, unfortunately. I guess the only way calling a terrorist a terrorist won’t be racist is the day one blows up the Associated Press offices.
Here’s the most comical part of the media’s racial harping: Most African-Americans who cast a ballot will vote for Barack Obama. This leads the A.P. to ask why… so many whites have trouble voting for somebody who isn’t the same color they are.
Yep. Pathetically funny.
