Are You a Racist?

According to many liberal Democrats, if you criticize President Obama, you must be a racist. Are those numb nuts for real? Do you mean to tell me that I can’t criticize my President without being called a racist? I guess so, according to them!

In addition, besides being called a racist, Republicans are routinely called heartless, cruel, homophobic, sexist, proudly ignorant and inherently violent. Gee, I didn’t know I was such a terrible person by being a Republican? Even a flame-throwing Congressman like Congressional Black Caucus whip Andre Carson said that, “Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now with the Tea Party movement, would love to see you and me hanging from a tree”. Where’s the outrage by the liberal media condemning outbursts like that? But no, no outrage, as the vile messenger of hate was a Democrat and he was black. Democrats never have say they’re sorry. Doesn’t that add up to a racist comment?

Just recently, the tragedy of a young 17 year old boy, Trayvon Martin, was shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman. When this story hit the news media, all hell broke loose. We had so-called black leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Miami), come to Sanford, Florida to stir up trouble by depicting the shooting as a racial incident. They claimed that Zimmerman (a white man) shot the unarmed Trayvon for no apparent reason other than he was a black boy wearing a “hoodie”. The din of the prodding of the Sanford Police Dep’t. to arrest Zimmerman reached a crescendo, and a special prosecutor was appointed to hasten the demand for “their” justice. Most all news reports and the “racial arsonists”, found Zimmerman guilty even before all the evidence was collected and evaluated. Well, as predicted, Zimmerman was finally arrested and remanded to jail. While in jail, some of the facts started to be released. Those facts seemed to back up the claim that Zimmerman was the victim of an attack by Trayvon and he seemed to have shot Trayvon in self-defense (the gun used by Zimmerman was legally registered). Quite ironically, it also was revealed that Zimmerman was part Hispanic who also had a grandparent who was black. In other words, he wasn’t the “lily white” racist murderer he was portrayed to be.

The case is still pending, but it is a case study in a race to judgment by an out-of-control media and racial hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton. It was similar to the Duke Lacrosse case, whereby innocent college kids were vilified and called racists for a crime none of them committed, other than being “white“.

So, when these purveyors of racial disharmony throw out that term “racist” willy-nilly, just tell them to look in the mirror to see who the real racists are.

Why are most of the people who charge others with racism are closet racists themselves - like the Democrats. What party was in the forefront of opposing civil rights legislation? What party's policies have caused the breakup of the black family? What party is the home for the "racial arsonists" of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Of course, it is the group of hypocrites called the Democrat Party - the real racists.

It is quite obvious that the Democratic leaders are pushing the term Racist on Republicans in order to generate more bad feeling towards the GOP. Look at the coverage of the Trayvon Martin incident, on the first night that it was reported, NBC, ABC and CBS added race into the story even though there was absolutely no evidence for it. It was a calculated ploy to bring racial tension back to the forefront of americans so that they could then play on racism as a political tool.

Democrats need the minority vote to stay in power. So they create the impression that they are helping minorities and the bad racist Republicans are only out to hurt them.
