It’s gotten so that anything that is not pro-Obama is racist. The latest attack is that it’s racist to call his positions “socialist” (and this despite his affiliation with the socialist New Party). In the spirit of this attack, I hereby present a photo gallery of famous, black, self-admitted socialists:
Okay, I was just kidding. Not one of the really famous socialists is black. So, though I’ve said it before, I’ll still say it again: The only color that matters when it comes to Obama is RED.
UPDATE: Neo-neocon picked up on the flip side of this absurd new racism charge. She quotes verbatim from the Diuguid article making the charge that “socialism” is a racist term, and then adds what is obvious (I guess) only to those who actually like facts:
If Diuguid actually knew the meaning of the word “shame,” he might feel some himself—because three of the four civil rights leaders he mentioned were in fact Socialists or even Communists, and the fourth was intermittently sympathetic to the cause.
Please read the rest of neo’s post, since it explains that she’s not just playing around with racist name-calling when she makes that statement.
