Last night on MSNBC, Lawrence O’Donnell made the outlandish claim that Senator Mitch McConnell assertion that President Obama is working harder on his golf game than on his job was racist. O’Donnell said, ” Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth.”
Of course, McConnell never mentioned the name Tiger Woods and certainly never accused to president of philandering. That just doesn’t matter. This is the latest, but perhaps stupidest claim, that criticism of the president is racist. We consistently are told that the GOP speak in “code words.” Among the words with hidden meaning include: welfare, food stamp president, entitlement society, poor work ethic and amnesty.
These racial McCarthyite’s who see racists under every bed inadvertently reveal more about their view of the country than anything else. If their “code word” theory was operative, that would mean there are millions of Americans harbor racist hate in their hearts and will respond like Pavlov’s dog when they hear words like “welfare” and “food stamps.” They must believe large swaths of the country are red neck racist hicks and the GOP appeals to these dumbasses with these accusations.
This is just the latest example of liberals belittling the American people. Is there any wonder most people reject their liberalism in this form?
