No one could have predicted, a few bad apples, etc:
In less camera-shy quadrants of the wingnutosphere, Rush Limbaugh, Mike Gallagher, Pat Buchanan, the Freepi, Judith Apter Isosceles Percodan Marcalculate Klinghoffer, and many, many others determine that Colin Powell is a huge racist for endorsing Barack Obama. Because, you see, they are both black. The Media Blog goes a half-step further, proving by induction that all black people are racist, and the only option for decent people is to repay them in kind:
So, the next time a black person throws around the charge of racism feel free to ignore it. Better yet, you might want to tell them that it is nothing more than the pot calling the kettle black.
A bold stand for equality, one which reminds me of a non-racist MLK, Jr., or a Rosa Parks who stood up for racial equality. Over at Floppy Asses they advance a slightly different theory: that it’s not so much that black people are racist for voting for Democrats, as that they are morons, duped by the Demoncrats strategy of lying to negroes. Hello? Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, durr!
Jammie-Wearing Fool goes even further, noting that both black AND white people who vote for Obama are huge racists:
Yes, because it’s OK for them to be racist, so long as they project their racism upon Republicans with their incessant cries of racism. Naturally, it’s fine if 105% of blacks (with ACORN’s help, naturally) vote for Obama. We can’t call that racist, because we’d be racist for pointing that out.
Oh, and I forgot how these racists call anyone who isn’t a racist – i.e., decent white conservatives from real pro-America America – “racists”. In an amazing twist, white conservative republicans are History’s Secret Victims – again! Completing the agony, Donald Douglas attempts a bit of post-racist meta-projection something-or-other which would require a team of psychotherapists and a Klein bottle full of LSD to make sense of:
Just contemplate the loaded racism in that passage: Essentially, folks see Kwame Kilpatrick as a big, black threatening “nigga” (used here non-pejoratively, in the hip-hop sense, but perhaps differently by the working-class whites identified in the Politico).
I swear, one has to be a contortionist to make sense of Democratic Party racial politics.
I mean, think about it: What’s the difference between Kwame Kilpatrick and Barack Obama?
Naturally, Prof. Douglas concludes that there is no relevent difference between these two black men, and that one would have to be a huge racist to think there was. The next 4-8 years are going to be utterly insane.
