Clean Bill Of Racial Health For ‘Mocked Minority’

Although the progressive research group Greenberg Quinlan Rosner (James Carville is among its stars) has done its darnedest to disparage the conservative base of the Republican Party, its racism spotters have exempted this “mocked minority” from the media’s ubiquitously leveled charges of racism. (Much to the surprise of Chris Matthews, who has made this ad hominem a part of his “journalistic” bag of tricks.)

The Group’s Key Findings:

“Instead of focusing on these intense ideological divisions, the press and elites continue to look for a racial element that drives these voters’ beliefs – but they need to get over it. Conducted on the heels of Joe Wilson’s incendiary comments at the president’s joint session address, we gave these groups of older, white Republican base voters in Georgia full opportunity to bring race into their discussion – but it did not ever become a central element, and indeed, was almost beside the point.”

Greenberg-Quinlan-Rosner’s still-gleeful “conclusion”: “conservative Republicans who make up the base of the Republican Party stand a world apart from the rest of America.”

Had members of the mainstream mindless contingent read this space, they might have saved some energy, although they’d have to cite an adversary. We’ve dealt many a deductive death knell to the racism libel:

Throughout the presidential campaign—and to emphasize the country’s racial backwardness—the popular press kept at it: “Is the country ready for a black president?” “Will Americans ever elect a black man as president?” These were the campaign’s most repeated refrains. To which my response has been consistent: America is not remotely racist. If anything; Americans are remarkably naïve about human differences—cultural or racial.

Alas, as one wag said, “Any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought.” Non-stop, relentless propaganda, enforced by the tyranny of political correctness, helps explain why most Americans, who harbor no racial animus, believe racism saturates their society. As they see it, in electing Barack Obama, they’ve begun to atone for their original sin.

    Speaking of propaganda, I remember watching TV some time ago and dang if every news person, celebrity, etc. wasn’t the correct shade of beige! I wonder, though, if they really reproduced the average hue of Americans. If not, then that’s possible grounds for a lawsuit, I should think.

    Sorry to read about M.B. Moon watching TV. Life is too short. Hopefully, it was an aberration.

    As for racism, check out the hiring practices of Uncle Sam.

    Blacks make up about 13% of the US population, not its work force.

    And James Carville?

    Ugly in and out (and I’m being charitable).

    Thanks, Roger. I’ll be canceling my cable soon (but not the Internet!)

    I could not open your link (my problem) but presume that blacks are overrepresented in the Federal Government. Shame. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment.

    My brother worked for the Federal Government but nearly went insane because of the work atmosphere.

    …conservative Republicans who make up the base of the Republican Party stand a world apart from the rest of America.

    And the Revolutionaries who created this country from nothing were worlds apart from their cousins in Europe. [And in contemporary America.] Thank God.

    “Greenberg-Quinlan-Rosner’s still-gleeful “conclusion”: “conservative Republicans who make up the base of the Republican Party stand a world apart from the rest of America.”

    Holy crap! The depths to which the progressive Left will go to certify David Brooks, Chris Buckley, Peggy Noonan, and the rest of the Republican politeburo, as “right thinkers” is impressive. Even more impressive is that they don’t require hyperbaric oxygen treatment during recompression.

    One of this week’s silly episodes involved not allowing Rush Limbaugh to join the fraternity of Murchisons, Hunts, Fords, Marshalls, and other “racially sensitive” football owners. Limbaugh was not sensitive enough to own a team that will play Vikings, Chiefs, and Redskins…..

    Chris Matthews’ Hardball hosted a lively debate with Buchanan (defending Rush) against the Supreme Judge of Racial Correctness – Reverend Al Sharpton of Tawana Brawley, Freddie’s Fashion Mart white interlopers, Crown Heights “diamond merchants”, and numerous other peccadilloes.

    BREAKING NEWS – Rev. Al is SUING Rush:…/2009-10-17_rev_al_sharpton_threatens_to_sue_ rush_limbaugh_over_wall_street_journal_oped.html

    “Racist” Larry Elder weighed in on Rev. Al:

    And here is racist Rush’s slander: html

    Both publicity hounds can’t resist a golden opportunity to get some good media time, eventual speaking fees, and book sales. It would be fun to be on the lawsuit jury.

    If I am not that sympathetic to Rush, it is because while he is not crazy paranoid on race like Rev. Al – he does buy into the foreign policy / military paranoia of the neocons that anyone who criticizes our “liberations” of Iraq and Afghanistan is ANTI-AMERICAN – which is the conservative FLIP-SIDE of anyone who criticizes Obama is a RACIST.

    “If you don’t support Obama’s Dictatorship of the Proletariat, it’s because you’re a racist, so you don’t get any say in the matter!”

    “Oh, yeah, well if you don’t support pre-emptive war and eternal occupation of countries that can’t harm us, then you’re an enemy to the Fatherland, so YOU don’t get any say in the matter!”

    Anything to keep the public riveted on the communist-vs-fascist food fight to keep people from waking up. If they do, it will not be until they are homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
