How low will Obama-supporters and their allies in the MSM go to charge John McCain and Sarah Palin with racism?
It seems now that any criticism Republicans level against Obama is racist.Â I guess if you look for something hard enough, you’ll find it anywhere.Â Lewis Diuguid, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist, contends that in calling Obama policies “socialist,” “McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black.”
WOW!Â I just have to shake my head at the absurdity of this guy’s notion.Â Or, perhaps, as one smart college blogger put it, “I should have known it was a racist epitaph since McCain was saying it.”
Do these people know how much they’re soiling the political discourse by so labeling any criticism conservatives offer?Â Instead of attempting to rebut McCain’s charge, they insult him. Â They just want to believe that all Republicans are racist hate-mongers, even if they have to twist the record and invent new definitions of words to do so.
Maybe it’s because Diuguid, like Obama, is an devotee of Saul Alinsky who was not interested in debate, but in gaining power by whatever means necessary:Â Â “A People’s Organization is dedicated to an eternal war…A war is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play.”
And they accuse McCain of “running one of the most appalling campaigns we can remember.” Guess that’s because the MSM haven’t been monitoring themselves this time around. Or other mean-spirited Obama supporters.
