Ed Asner’s explanation for Hollywood’s silence regarding Obama potentially attacking Syria epitomizes the absurdity and danger of political correctness and identity politics. Ironically, Hollywood progressives find themselves slaves of their own emotion-driven, brain-dead loon-icy. Hollywood, along with Democrats and the mainstream media, have declared all opposition or criticism of Obama ‘racist.’
“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” said Asner.
Excuse me – they don’t want to “feel”? Dear Lord, while we adults are discussing national security, Hollywood progressives are still obsessed with their feelings and with protecting the first liberal black president.
Hollywood and the mainstream media’s supersensitivity to racism and sexism only applies when it involves supporting liberal Democrats. Thus, a Hillary Clinton presidency would, in essence, be the third Obama term, furthering his “fundamental transformation” of America.
Anyone opposing or criticizing the first “woman” president will be politically shackled and humiliated in the public square for sexism. Suckered again by allowing their political enemies to set the rules of engagement, wimpy weak-kneed Republicans will surrender and give Hillary everything she wants. They always do.
In glaring contradiction of their well-crafted image as defenders of blacks and women, Democrats have a history of take-no-prisoner assaults on black conservatives. Democrats seek not merely to stop them, but advocate their total destruction, ensuring that their uppity black derrieres never dare challenge the liberal’s agenda again.
The term “high tech lynching” was birthed out of the over-the-top vitriolic media circus created by Democrat and liberal media efforts to block black conservative Clarence Thomas from becoming a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
A liberal radio host called the first black Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, an Aunt Jemima, claiming that blacks only have subservient roles in the Bush Administration. Imagine a conservative radio host calling a black Democrat politician an Aunt Jemima. Their career would be over.
With class and dignity, Dr Rice endured the attacks of the racist white liberal cartoonists. Pat Oliphant and Jeff Danziger featured Rice with exaggerated big lips speaking in a rural southern dialect.
In his Doonesbury comic strip, Garry Trudeau called Rice “Brown Sugar”.
Ted Rall in his comic suggested that Rice was Bush’s “house nigga” in need of “racial re-education.”
Was there push-back from the mainstream media over the blatantly racist cartoons? Heck no. As a matter of fact, Universal Press Syndicate and the New York Times distribute these racist cartoonists.
Republican Michael Steele was the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland. And yet, when the LT Governor ran for the U.S. Senate, he was pelted with Oreo cookies at a campaign appearance. An Oreo is a black person who is black on the outside, but white inside. A white liberal blogger released a racist doctored photo of Steele as a black-faced minstrel. The caption read, “Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house.”
Despite irrefutable evidence that decades of liberal Democrat policies have destroyed the black family, racist actress Janeane Garofalo concluded that black conservatives are getting paid or are mentally ill, suffering with Stockholm Syndrome.
Black actress Stacey Dash was unprepared for the tsunami of venomous hate she received from liberal Democrats for endorsing Romney for president. In solidarity with MLK’s dream, Bash said, ”I chose him not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.”
This is merely a glimpse into liberals’ horrific record of racism. They are equally bigoted toward conservative women.
Million dollar contributor to Obama and liberal Democrat Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c**t. He called Michelle Bachmann and Palin MILFs. Imagine what would happen to a conservative displaying such disrespect for a liberal woman.
During a monologue, David Letterman took a cheap shot at Sarah Palin at the expense of her daughter. Letterman said Palin’s daughter got “knocked up” by Alex Rodriguez. He also said that Palin has the style of a “slutty flight attendant.”
None of these outrageously mean-spirited sexist assaults on conservative women received significant pushback from Democrats or the liberal mainstream media.
In an unholy alliance, the mainstream media have duped low-information voters into believing the Democrats are superhero defenders of blacks and women, protecting them from villainous conservative Republicans. It’s a crock of you know what.
Liberal Democrats are not paragons of virtue fighting for the rights of blacks and women. Quite the opposite. Blacks and women are useful to the Democratic party only insofar as they can be used to accrue power and discredit Republicans.
Democrats cannot be trusted with national security, or restoring America’s economic glory. Like zombies, Democrats and their liberal allies in the media are undeterred, totally focused on implementing the liberal socialist/progressive agenda and protecting the legacy of the first black president president. Thus, the anti-war party must support a war of choice in Syria.
Such will be the case if Hillary wins the White House in 2016. Protecting the legacy of the first liberal female president will trump everything, including national security.
Political correctness and identity politics are killin’ us, folks.
