The New Racism

This week on the Factor, Bernie Goldberg made this comment about the new "racism":

George Bush was a racist because of Katrina.  A prominent liberal magazine online said if Obama doesn’t win the election in 2008, it was because of white racism.  If you’re against Obamacare, you’re a racist.  If you’re against affirmative action, you’re a racist.  If you have anything to do with Fox News, you’re a racist.

Of course, that’s only a partial list.  If you believe that everyone should pay taxes, you’re a racist.  If you think America should have secure borders, you’re a racist.  If you think that states should be able to enforce their borders, you’re a racist.  If you think that alleged political corruption should be investigated even when the politicians in question are black, you’re a racist.

Let’s just stop beating around the bush here: if you’re anything other than a political liberal, you might as well be a card-carrying member of the KKK because obviously you’re a racist.

And all of this under our first "post-racial" president.  The fact is, too many liberals see everything through the lens of race, and until those kinds of people grow up, any talk of a post-racial America is just wishful thinking.  Of course, those kinds of people are dishonest by definition, so don’t hold your breath waiting for them to admit the fact that most Americans -- including most conservatives -- are not racist.

Today I just can’t resist.  This post is so true and the whole thing is so ridiculous that all I could do is laugh out loud as I read this.  Oh my!
