"The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man. To render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments." - Melissa Harris-Perry, MSNBCOf course you know the word she's talking about right? Is it "nigger"? No, it's ObamaCare! That's right, ObamaCare is the newest code word for nigger. Now that Martin Bashir is gone from the MSNBC airwaves, Melissa Harris-Perry has taken on the mantle of pointing out that the only reason for disliking the Obama administration's policies is racism. It can't possibly be anything else in the mind of these collectivists, because Obama is perfect in every way and has done so much to help blacks including...something. What that something is I have no idea and neither do they.
As I mentioned in a previous post, even Tavis Smiley admits "...the data is going to indicate, sadly, that when the Obama administration is over black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator on that regard the president ought to be held responsible..." The Congressional Black Caucus admits "if Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House." But those that dare challenge the success of Obama and his signature program are racists if they are not either Democrats or liberal progressives.
Why? Because the racist card has worked for them for almost 50 years. It keeps blacks voting for the Democratic Party at a 90% rate and above. Furthermore, it keeps black organizations in line such that they rarely complain about the failure of the Democratic Party to effectively address problems in the black community. At least not openly that is.
The list of code words or phrases for nigger has gotten quite long during the Obama administration. I've included a partial list here; skinny, IRS, bully or thug, angry, Chicago, Constitution, food stamp and PGA Tour. The list is expected to grow at an exponential rate as his signature program crumbles and his income inequality agenda fails to get implemented, but at least it has a possible limit according to Assistant House Democratic Leader, Congressional Black Caucus member and former CBC Chairman Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-SC).
"The entire English language was created by slaveowners [sic] as a means of oppression. You can’t just say that one word is a racist code word or another. The whole language, every single word, letter and apostrophe in it is racist. It’s a fact. If you speak English, you’re a racist."Ironically, Mr. Clyburn said that quote in ENGLISH! Someone should inform Mr. Clyburn that English wasn't created in 18th century America, but was a fusion of dialects collectively termed Old English and who's origins trace back to the mid-5th century. But the knowledge of this fact wouldn't fit his meme so I'm sure he'd either ignore it or find some way to be intellectually dishonest about it.
So, because English is a racist language there will be no end to the coded words that really mean nigger. I expect when all is said and done, calling Barack Obama "President" will be a dog-whistle for evoking a racist Pavlovian response from teabaggers. Sorry, did I say teabaggers? I meant white racists because as everyone knows, the Tea Party is racist.
