The Racist Whistle Only Dogs Hear

From Mark Steyn

…American racism: The less there is, the more extravagantly the racism-awareness lobby patrols its beat…Chris Matthews declared this week that Republicans use “Chicago” as a racist code word…Lawrence O’Donnell pronounced “golf” a racist code word…over at The Huffington Post, Geoffrey Dunn…was scoffing at Clint Eastwood’s star turn at the convention – “better known as the Gathering of Pasty White People”…

…now that “golf” and “Chicago” – along with “Clint,” “Medicare,” “debt,” “jobs,” “foreign policy” and “quantitative easing” – are all racist code words, are there any words left that aren’t racist?… On the matter of those racist dog whistles all these middle-age white liberals keep hearing, the Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto put it very well: “The thing we adore about these dog-whistle kerfuffles is that the people who react to the whistle always assume it’s intended for somebody else,” he wrote. “The whole point of the metaphor is that if you can hear the whistle, you’re the dog.”

    Democrats are way akead of the GOP in the area of political ads and talk.

    Because of decades of progressive puplic school edecuation many people are not capable of “critical thinking” and use “emotion” to coverup this defiency. The word “likeability” appeals to people who act on emotion.
