Who Are The Racists, Again?

Minority Report Blog: Janeane Garofalo: Herman Cain Has Stockholm Syndrome and is Being Paid To Run for President

“[He's] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more,” Garofalo said.

“But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like ‘I love that, that can’t be racist. He’s a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.’ Or ‘it’s a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It’s a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.’

Garofalo also had some conspiracy theories as to who may be putting Cain up to this.

“And I feel like wouldn’t that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. ‘Let’s get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party,’” Garofalo said.

And, frankly, as bad as that is, a few days ago we saw an even more egregious–not to mention malicious–example of a hard-line lefty injecting race into a debate where it did not previously exist, and imputing racist remarks upon someone who said no such thing:

Breitbart.tv: NBC News Caught Red-Handed ‘Selectively Editing’ & ‘Doctoring’ Video to Smear Gov. Perry as Racist

That last one brings up a second question. Not only should we ask: “Who are the racists, again?” We should also ask: “Exactly what does Ed Schultz need to do in order to get fired?”

    The left is very predictable:
    Tehy always project onto others what they themselfs are always doing. Once this sinks in to the non-left, it becomes easier to deal with, rahter than constantly being on defense.

    Remember, the best defense is a good offense. If you keep repeating a lie, it becomes the truth (for quite a few clueless people). And of course the golden rule is that big fat (D) for your party affiliation means the rules don’t apply to you, you can say and do whatever you like and nothing happens to you.
