Update: This “incredibly dumb piece” of race-baiting we wrote about at midnight is gaining attention – as it should.
Eventually the race card will be played with ferocity against R/R and they better be prepared at all the crazy coming their way. Supporters of R/R should be prepared (read the end of our article for suggestions as to how to respond with force not weakness) for the sludge of Obama slime coming their way.
And remember, the race-baiting we write about below comes to you courtesy of Henry Louis Gates.
Keli Goff “political correspondent” of a black oriented website called “The Root” has the political scoop the Obama campaign has been waiting for.
It’s a story with twists and turns and shocking revelations. This is truly a scoop that will roil next week’s Republican convention.
The Root has the scoop of dirt that will destroy Paul Ryan:
“Shortly after it was announced that Rep. Paul Ryan would join the Romney ticket as this year’s Republican vice presidential candidate, I wrote a piece titled, “What We Know About Paul Ryan and Blacks.”
Well, I recently learned of another significant addition to this list.”
Get ready for your Pulitzer and a job at MSNBC”s prime time lineup Keli. Here is surprise twist #1:
“As reported on Twitter by CNN’s Pete Hamby, Ryan said he has a black sister-in-law, but perhaps even more interesting, his “college sweetheart” was African American.”
Shocking!!!!!!! A black college sweetheart!!!!!!!! This is supposed to be good right? This is supposed to be a sign of a modern man unencumbered by racism right? Not quite.
After those revelations Keli Goff examines the great questions of race and racism in America. Keli Goff takes no prisoners as she slices and dices racist Lou Dobbs:
“For years Lou Dobbs was the face of the anti-illegal-immigration crusade. As a result of his seeming obsession with the issue, he became in the eyes of many the face of xenophobia and racism, not to mention public enemy No. 1 of Mexican immigrants. There’s just one hitch to this narrative: Dobbs is married to a Mexican-American woman, meaning that he is the father of Mexican-American children. (His Mexican-born mother-in-law even lives with his family.)“
Strom Thurmond is exhumed by Keli for a deserved trashing as well. The old segregationist fathered a black daughter (that no one disputes he genuinely loved and cared for) even as he led the movement to stop integration. The profound Keli asks:
“So then, how could he genuinely care for his black daughter and promote policies that would harm African Americans, and therefore harm her?”
Keli has a response to her own question that will shock gay activists. Gay activists believe that “coming out” to friends and family and the public at large reduces, if not eliminates, anti-gay bigotry. Civil rights activists who fought for black civil rights and integration as a way to bring the races together will also be surprised that according to Keli this strategy is doomed to failure. Keli Goff apparently has a deeper understanding of the human soul and a much more amazing insight into prejudice and bigotry:
“Research has shown that those who hold stereotypes about a particular group of people are unlikely to have those stereotypes altered merely by encountering someone who defies that stereotype. Instead, they are likely to view the individual defying said stereotype as an exception. In other words, it is possible to have a black friend, Asian friend, Hispanic friend or Muslim friend or wife and still exhibit prejudice toward that group. The friend or wife is simply viewed as the exception who is not like the others.”
Thank whatever deity you worship or your favorite scientist for Keli Goff. Such brilliance. Such understand. Such profundity of thought and expression.
Here is the ultimate Keli Goff twist (#2) and proof of Ryan the Racist:
“For the record: No, I am not calling Ryan a racist. I am saying, however, that if you want to know where a politician’s heart lies when it comes to a particular community, it may be best to look at that person’s policies — such as his or her record on civil rights — rather than personal relationships.”
Such generosity from Keli Goff in merely implying, not outright declaring, that white boyfriend to a black woman Paul Ryan is not being explicitly labeled a “racist” by her. She does not think that Paul Ryan is a racist after all. She only implies it.
Who can argue that what we should look at is policies not personal relationships and look at the effect of those policies in order to yell “RACIST”?
Bill Clinton was smeared by Obama Hopium Guzzlers as a racist during the last presidential election cycle. Bill grew up and certainly knew many black people and many black people were his closest friends and supporters. But Keli must think that does not matter.
Bill Clinton policies grew to an unprecedented degree the black middle class. Black youth unemployment was way down during Bill’s terms. Black unemployment was down generally and blacks thrived under “racist” Bill Clinton. [While we’re at it “racist” George W. Bush was probably the best president when it came to fighting AIDS in Africa.]
Compare and contrast. What has the effect of Obama policies been on the black community? We must be imagining that the black middle class is being decimated. We must be imagining that black youth unemployment is soaring. We must be imagining that black communities are being destroyed.
Using Keli Goff’s measure for racism we can only conclude: Barack Obama is a racist. Barack Obama hates black people. Barack Obama hates white people. Barack Obama hates women. Barack Obama hates men. That’s what Barack Obama’s policies tell us Keli.
