The Progressives Who Cried “Racist!”

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

This week’s most prominent example of baseless progressive accusations of racism come from an MSNBC tweet, now deleted, which claimed that the rightwing would hate a Cheerios ad with a biracial family. The tweeter was fired, but it’s just one in a long line of baseless accusations of racism and vitriolic hate from the Augean stables of MSNBC.

But the best part? More Republicans have mixed-race families than Democrats.

Using the logic liberals so often deploy, this “proves” that Democrats are more racist than Republicans.

On the same topic, here’s acerbic, articulate and frequently perceptive British atheist Pat Condell on the subject of progressive racism:

A few money quotes:

“In progressive hands, the word racist has become the verbal equivalent of a chemical weapon, or a dum-dum bullet, used spitefully, disproportionately, as a first resort, and without the slightest justification.”

“It seems to me that the people who constantly invoke skin color for no reason, as progressives do to the point of obsession, are the ones who actually have a problem with it. They see racism everywhere because they’re riddled with it themselves.”

“You see, progressives don’t really believe that non-white people are equal, or are capable of being equal on their own merits.”

Watch the whole thing.

California: Completely Screwed

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Instead of going out and doing the heavy lifting myself on a Texas vs. California update, Victor Davis Hanson [[Corrected. - LP]] has done another of his California is totally screwed pieces, and it’s a cornucopia of facts on California’s decline.

A few tidbits:

  • Salinas just named an elementary school after a serial cop killer
  • Racist Latino gangs are now driving black families straight out of Compton
  • “Hundreds of thousands of the working and upper-middle class, mostly from the interior of the state, have fled — maybe four million in all over the last thirty years, taking with them $1 trillion in capital and income-producing education and expertise. Apparently, they tired of high taxes, poor schools, crime, and the culture of serial blame-gaming and victimhood.”
  • “One of every three welfare recipients lives in California.”
  • Read the whole thing.

    A few quick links:

  • Liberals are racists.
  • Big-spending Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez recalled from office by an almost 9-1 ratio. Alvarez was a RINO that acted like a full-bore Democrat, hiking property taxes and giving big pay raises to unionized public employees. (hat tip: Dwight.)
  • In New York, unions protect state employees who sexually abuse the mentally handicapped, even when they know they’re guilty. “That’s our job.”
  • A word on the media’s amazingly poor understanding of nuclear reactors.
  • My latest update on the Sendai earthquake/tsunami in Japan.

    A small Sunday Linkswarm for you:

  • What the hell is going on in Libya? Good question. Moammar Gadhafi isn’t having any of that foolish “Democracy” talk, as clashes have left over 200 dead in Libya’s second-largest city. I don’t think Gadhafi will hesitate to slaughter protesters if he thinks he has to, and unless they can flip someone high up in the military against him, it’s tough to see them managing to oust him.
  • What’s the proper way to great a wheelchair-bound Iraqi veteran who spent two years recovering from wounds received fighting for his country? According to liberals at Columbia University, it’s booing, hissing, or calling him a racist.
  • And speaking of racism, AlterNet called Godfather’s Pizza founder Herman Cain a “a monkey in the window” for daring to be a black conservative.
  • An speaking of liberal racism, Ohio Democratic Representative Robert F. Hagan called a black Tea Party supporter “Buckwheat.”
