So there is this:
Or maybe not
That is just one of the inherent issues with this whole debate of racism and Tea Party. We have folks who will condemn all of Tea Party for what were alleged and never proved incidents of abhorrent behavior; folks who will take bad apples that will show up in any large movement of people and assign those foolish behaviors to the rest of a movement; folks who will excuse any bad behavior for the sake of pushing policy or if they agree with you.
In the first clip, I actually agree with Whoopi-it seems she is making the point that I have made day after day on this issue. We are in a climate that everything is racism. Disagree? Racism. Want the country to go in a different direction? Racism. Mad at someone? Racism. Think someone is unqualified? Racism. It is ridiculous that the left have diluted an actual horrible state of mind and attitude to the point where it has almost no meaning now. Charges of racism are thrown about as easily as platitudes about the weather. People who have actually experienced racism, sexism or discrimination of any kind will tell you-questioning where someone was born may be stupid or unbecoming-but it definitely not racist. People think stupid things all the time, but that doesn't make them racist.....it might make them stupid or lazy, but decidedly not racist. Just like it's not sexist to state I am not qualified to be a welder (because I am not trained in welding) it's not racist to say one thinks Obama is unqualified to serve as President. I personally think he has no idea what he's doing and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin, but only the content of his decisions. I'm allowed to think that. However thinking it and saying so doesn't make me racist.
The left need to get over their disappointing choice by trying to blame the right. I'm sorry for you that your choice isn't panning out to be all you thought it would be. I'm sorry for you that his numbers drop more and more everyday-not because more and more people wake up and say "Hey, I don't want a black man in the White House!" but because more and more people see the poor choices he is making and the damage it is doing to our country.
