NO … SHAME ON YOU THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA AND ANY PRETENSE THAT YOU CARE ABOUT ANY OBJECTIVITY EXCEPT TO ELECT BARACK OBAMA!!!
I would ask a simple question, who really are the racists? Those that would blame everything on race and that color is the reason for everything, or those that would simply call socialism for what is truly is? Since when has socialism been defined by color? Are we to believe that there have never been any white socialists? I guess when we called John Kerry and John Edwards socialist we were being racist as well. Who knew when we called Hillary Healthcare and nationalized healthcare socialism we were racists?
Socialism is not code for black; however,“spread the wealth” is code for socialism.
Now you are a racist if you call Barack Obama and his “spread the wealth” economic plans a socialist. According to the “Lame Stream Media” using the term socialist is code for “black”. Unbelievable. Socialism and a socialist is just what it states … socialism. To what extent and how far in the tank will the media go to do everything they can to put Obama in the White House. Objectivity in the media is dead. Get used to this “We the People” if Obama is elected … there will be no media to question anything Obama does, for if you do … you are a racist.
The “socialist” label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality.
Those freedom fighters included the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the Civil Rights Movement; W.E.B. Du Bois, who in 1909 helped found the NAACP which is still the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization; Paul Robeson, a famous singer, actor and political activist who in the 1930s became involved in national and international movements for better labor relations, peace and racial justice; and A. Philip Randolph, who founded and was the longtime head of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and a leading advocate for civil rights for African Americans.
The Gateway Pundit: Paper Says “Socialist” Label Is Code Word For “Black”
W. E. B. Du Bois and Paul Robeson, were linked to the communist party. But, it was not their blackness that made them socialists, it was their warped thinking.
Jules Crittenden: Etymoronology
Anyway, I’m going to have to call “Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist” code words for “moron.” It’s beyond moronic. To paraphrase MLK Jr, it’s tragic that, at this late date, we cannot judge a man by the content of his political utterances without being accused of talking about the color of his skin.
