The Republican narrative this week is that Obama had failed as President and it’s time for a change. The media narrative is that the Republicans are a bunch of racists using super secret code words. Whether we should be outrage or rejoicing remains to be seen. No doubt the accusation of racism is an outrage. But if the left has gotten to the point where the only way they can defend Obama’s failed record is to call everyone in the GOP a racist, that may be cause for rejoicing. After all, such an argument shows everyone with even a little sense the failure of Obama.
The media claimed everything at the GOP Convention was racist. Rick Santorum’s hand’s speech was racist. The word Chicago is racist. Indeed, no one can suggest we send Obama back to Chicago because obviously only black people live there so that’s racist. We’ll pretend Obama doesn’t live there and we’ll have to forget about all the Democrats wanting to send George W. Bush back to Texas. Did I mention that Rick Santorum’s hand speech? The overplayed metaphor is super secret code language about black people on welfare. Yep, Salon made that argument. Why does the left always assume that people on welfare are black? Don’t they know the majority of welfare recipients are white?
Not to be outdone by Salon, Ron Fournier of National Journal breaks down Republicans super secret code words. Fournier went back to his hometown of Detroit and talked to one of his old pals who lives in Macomb County. He takes his white friend out to breakfast, which itself is a sign of racism because we all know how cliche white people like breakfast. Fournier loves to take his white friend out for breakfast because it gives him the opportunity to break down super secret racist code words which Fournier then writes about during Republican Conventions. That’s right, he’s pulled this stunt before.
Unemployment in the city of Detroit is 30%, which Fournier’s white friend thought was 40%. What a racist! His friend points out some of the major problems with welfare. It breeds laziness and dependance. People cheat the system and as a taxpayer he finds it outrageous. He’s a fireman in the city of Detroit, so not surprisingly he largely comes into contact with black welfare recipients. He never suggests all blacks are lazy, he likely knows better in light of the fact that he works in the city of Detroit. If 40% in his mind are unemployed, that means 60% are hard working and doing the right thing. Why we should punish this guy as a racist when the overwhelming majority of welfare recipients he’s come into contact with are black is beyond anyone’s understanding. I’ve come into contact with welfare cheats of all races, they’re one in the same. They all pull the same stunts, they’re all lazy. The white ones are exactly the same as the black ones.
But of course Fournier extends his friend’s alleged racism to the entire Republican Party. You see, the GOP uses his friend’s super secret breakfast code language. Thus when Romney spoke last night in code, because of Fournier I now know what a racist he is. Do you see the absurdity here? Nearly 45% of the country religiously votes Republican. That means not only is 45% of the country racist but it means we all know the super secret code language. If we all know the code language, why are we speaking in code? If we know the code language and Fournier knows the code language, don’t you think everyone knows the code? Again, why speak in code?
I suppose when Chicago is a racial epithet and having black and Hispanic speakers is a sign of racism then it makes perfect sense that Republicans would speak in super secret code. Sure, why not? Anything goes with the left. They’ll say anything to attack Republicans no matter how absurd. The intellectual bankruptcy of the left has been on full display in their racist attacks on the GOP. They’re losing the argument, they cannot defend Obama’s results so they’re going to attack the opponent as racist. It isn’t going to work. No one hears the super secret code but racists on the left who desperately want to hold onto their power. The sad thing is that the media is the one pushing all of this, showing their bias once and for all.
