Who Are These Racists?

The charge du jour to stifle dissent has become "Racists" when it comes to disagreeing with the President and his policies. But the inanity of it all, had to be summed up by the Peanut Farmer Jimmah Carter who said:
JIMMY CARTER: I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African-American. And I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of a belief among many white people, not just in the south, but around the country that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country.
Holy Cow, do you mean to tell me that we elected a "BLACK MAN?!!!" This is obviously further evidence of media bias, in that so many people didn't learn his heritage. That would explain his fall in popularity from over 65% (more of a percentage than voted for him) to just over 45% from his inauguration to the present as more and more people discovered this cleverly hidden secret. It wouldn't have anything to do with his job performance, it has to be racism. And President Epic Failure is not alone in this regard. Commentators in our nation's capital discerned that Rep. Joe Wilson is actually a member of the KKK, (or is it Sons of the Confederacy? Not that it matters) and that is the only reason he shouted at the President. It has nothing to do with the lack of enforcement provisions at the time of Obama's speech.
But the funnier ones, are like MooDoo who subliminally project her own deepest racism onto others by putting words in the mouths of others. "You lie Boy!"
The obvious question has to be, why this sudden outpouring of racist allegations, when we as a nation have elected our first authentic black president? My answer is that it has nothing to do with race. This is the stuff straight out of the Alinsky playbook, in that you use the opponent's rules against him. Racism was and is a serious problem in this country, and good people don't want to be associated with those who are racists. By calling anyone who disagrees with them a racist, the Left has effectively reversed the argument from one of a factual dispute to one of trying to prove a negative. But it is starting to wear out. For the most part, people realize that opposition to policies is not the same as opposition to the person. Except for the Left.
They have internalized their hopes and dreams in the color of Obama's skin, so much so that they ignore his other failures to achieve their policy goals. So, rather than blame the tool of policy instrumentation, they blame others. After all, if they blame Obama, they would fall prey to their own racist ideology. And that would never do.
The protesters who are called racist are more the inheritors of Dr. King's exhortation measure a man by the content of his character and not the color of his skin. And they don't like his character. The Left only sees the color of his skin. And as proof, remember this little exchange:

Sen. Barbara Boxer accused of racism by head of Black Chamber o - Watch more Funny Videos
Barbara Boxer may not be the smartest Senator, but she is absolutely astounded that the black guy didn't notice how she was praising him for being black.
Color of skin again.

Readers should refer to Stephen Hayward's The Real Jimmy Carter if they want a taste of the out-and-out racism that Carter employed in order to defeat moderate former Gov. Carl Sanders for the Democratic nomination that year. As Hayward's book points out:

•Carter's top campaign staffers were spotted distributing grainy photographs of Sanders arm-in-arm celebrating with two black men. Sanders was a part-owner of the Atlanta Hawks, and in the photograph he was celebrating a victory with two players who were pouring champagne over his head. Carter's leaflet was intended to depress Sanders's white vote.
•"The Carter campaign also produced a leaflet noting that Sanders had paid tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr."
•Carter criticized Sanders, a former governor, for preventing Alabama Gov. and notorious segregationist George Wallace from speaking on Georgia state property. "I don't think it was right for Governor Sanders to try to please a group of ultra-liberals, particularly those in Washington, when it means stifling communication with another state," said Carter.
•"'I have no trouble pitching for Wallace votes and black votes at the same time,' Carter told a reporter. Carter also said to another reporter, 'I can win this election without a single black vote.'"
•Upon receiving the endorsement of former Democratic Gov. Lester Maddox, Carter responded by praising the life-long segregationist: "He has brought a standard of forthright expression and personal honesty to the governor's office, and I hope to live up to his standard." Maddox had not only refused to serve blacks in the restaurant he once owned, but he had also greeted civil rights protestors with a gun, and made sticks available to his white customers with which to intimidate them.
•"The campaign paid for radio ads for a fringe black candidate, C.B. King, in an effort to siphon black votes away from Sanders."
•"Then there was the radio commercial in which Carter said he would never be the tool of any 'block' vote, slurring over the word 'block' so that it could be mistaken for 'black.'

Today's Jimmy Carter seems to have reformed. He no longer exhibits racial emnity towards African Americans, he saves that side himself for his anti-Sematism.
