There was no uproar, offense, or calls for resignation at MSNBC when former DNC director of communications Karen Finney described Republicans as “those crazy crackers on the right . . . with their very hateful language”. Making this clearly racist remark even more stunning was the fact that Finney was railing against, and calling for an end to, hateful language when she said it.
This is a perfect example of the one-way street many progressive liberals blindly travel on their way to “fundamentally transforming” America. For years, racism has been a trump card for the left while they considered themselves immune from such allegations. Many have even expressed their firm belief that blacks and other minorities can never be racists.
The left has deluded itself into believing that hate, racism, stupidity, and evil only exists on the right. President Obama, who once campaigned on being a “uniter”, polarized the country further than it has ever been and fueled the fire of this delusion. Arrogantly refusing to accept responsibility for anything that is wrong, Obama has gone so far as to blame hurricane Sandy for the recent drop in the GDP and FOX News for the “nasty atmosphere” in Washington – an atmosphere he helped create.
With most of the mainstream media on the same page as the White House and avidly believing in and promoting this one-way-street delusion, it can only get worse. Silence from those who know better enables it to continue. The time has come to speak out, or face the real possibility of delusional Joe Biden becoming our next president. If that doesn’t motivate you to speak up, you’ve become part of the problem.
