MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Vilifies Rick Perry as “Racist,” Simply for Using the Word, “Black”


I got this from One STDV:

Accusations of Racism Have Jumped the Shark

It was bound to happen soon or later - the leftists have actually gone crazy. Last week, professional MSNBC bloviator, Ed Schultz, put forth the most absurd accusation of racism I've ever seen. And I read "anti-racist" sites, so one can imagine the type of rhetoric I've encountered. In sum, Schultz and the writers of his show have no outlawed the word "black" as racist. See for yourself:

Schultz: Perry...loves to remind white America that President Obama is "Other", not like you. (OneSTDV: I presume Ed Schultz is a black Harvard Law grad who grew up in Indonesia with his white mother and Asian stepfather and then in Hawaii with his white grandparents.) Perry also wants you to know that he's pro-business.

Perry: I will be a pro-business President...Being able to pay off 14.5 or 16 trillion dollars worth of debt, that big black cloud that hangs over America. [video cuts off mid-sentence]

Schultz: That black cloud Perry is talking about is President Barack Obama.

Author Jim Moore: I think the whole business with the black cloud wasn't exactly very subtle.

OneSTDV: So according to Schultz and his guest, using a common idiom containing the word 'black' is now grounds for justified charges of racism….

Yet shouldn't we expect such mendacity from the left? I no longer consider much of the professional left idealists, but rather a group motivated by hatred and greed. And since they have no moral foundation to their beliefs, a fact they'll occasionally admit to, the left has no qualms about presenting lies as fact, then bashing anyone who notes their duplicity. (See Global Warming.) Unfortunately, this blatant lie will soon be forgotten underneath the persistent vituperative leftists spew at any dissenter, such as Maxine Waters telling the Tea Party to "go straight to hell." How about that civility?

As the left becomes more dishonest in their presentation, it also becomes more desperate to unearth conservative transgressions. Similar to the left's fastidious study of Palin's governer e-mails, while ignoring the huge autobiography Obama published explaining his way of thinking, the left wants to find any dirt it can on non-liberals. Yet when they can't, when those evil conservatives somehow avoid character assassination, the left just makes stuff up. Their favorite, of course, is accusing an individual of racism…

Now that the left has made common idiom and even a color indicative of racism, where do they go from here? I foresee regular people increasingly understanding leftist insanity as even Jon Stewart mocked Schultz for this. I imagine also that soon we'll actually declare war against Eurasia, but maybe there won't be enough Winston Smiths for such lies to hold.

OneSTDV: “Now that the left has made common idiom and even a color indicative of racism, where do they go from here? I foresee regular people increasingly understanding leftist insanity as even Jon Stewart mocked Schultz for this.”

I responded to OneSTDV at his blog as follows:

Your problem is that: 1. You’re being logical; and 2. Assuming that behavior follows from said logic.

The Left deals in hysteria, fear, intimidation and violence. Such conditions make it difficult to publicly deal logically or honestly with their statements, let alone their actions.

And let me tell you, facing consequences like violence, whitelisting, and imprisonment merely for challenging racial socialism, do not help one maintain one’s intellectual or moral independence. Just ask James Watson or, for a more recent example, Frank Borzellieri.

According to Theodore Dalrymple (Anthony Daniels), the ever increasing absurdity of the race-baiting is not a flaw of Leftism, but the beauty part. I’m sure you’re familiar with his argument, but I’ll quote it anyway, because it is so maddeningly elegant.

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies [N.S.: See racially motivated, black-on-white crime, and black intelligence], or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

And for some historical perspective, prior to Brown v. Board of Education, many well-known American scholars and writers publicly refuted the dogma that blacks are whites’ intellectual equals, without being personally destroyed; today, none dares.
