With each and every presidential criticism, the critics are more and more portrayed as being racist
Today WaPo which is not usually a rampant ideological stone of the way left critical progressive group running what mutated out of Harry Truman's party, says this about the poster here to the right:
I am slowly concluding that this faux racist claim, so clearly unjustified in any way whatsoever (except thru these tortuous psychological mumbo jumbo expeditions), is becoming, like Arthur C Clarke's rejoinder about violence, the last refuge for both the incompetence of the administration in hiding its ultimate agenda (their manifest DISAGREEMENT with the system of the founding brothers and their founding documents), and their clearly growing paranoia that too many are now vectoring in.By using the "urban" makeup of the Heath Ledger Joker, instead of the urbane makeup of the Jack Nicholson character, the poster connects Obama to something many of his detractors fear but can't openly discuss. He is black and he is identified with the inner city, a source of political instability in the 1960s and '70s, and a lingering bogeyman in political consciousness despite falling crime rates.
We should expect more.
For these people to succeed, they MUST convince the american people that those who support what the founding brothers wanted (i.e., libertarians and conservatives) are racists, hate the poor, and are NUTS CASES (birthers).
But their largest problem, is that posters like the one WaPo worriedly claims must be racist, cut to the quick of history's likely verdict about Barack Obama.
The damage to the nation might as well be that of a psychotic, since the system he wants has failed everywhere, drained all progress and hope from those individuals in the nations it has burdened and thus resulted finally in populations worried only about the hedonistic now, slowly crashing in on ever aging, shrinking populations.
Some racism. He is simply a more modern, MORE left Henry Wallace, and he is getting the same reaction.
