I Think the Racists in the Left Wing are Upset

President Obama’s old pastor, Jeremiah White-Folks’-Greed Wright, recently made a phenomenal statement that carries tremendous insight into the worldview of the radical left. On the subject of Obama’s proposed healthcare “reform” the not-so-good reverend had this to say:

“I think the racists in the right wing are upset because poor people are about to be helped.”

Say what? I guess the racists are white and the poor are black? And since whites hate blacks, whites don’t want to help poor blacks via unconstitutional government expansion? What about all the poor white people who are in the right wing of politics? Are they racists too? What about blacks in the right wing? Do they hate the poor white people? Are there any poor blacks in the right wing? Mr. Wright, is the healthcare debate about class warfare, race warfare or a little of both?

Or could it possibly be about the proper role of the federal government?

In consideration of the blind benefit-of-the-doubt that was extended to Barack Obama at the 2008 ballot box, the slip of another racist statement from the far left is beyond belief. In the face of more than a scintilla of evidence that the One who transcended race had ties to blatant racists, the American people wanted to believe that Obama was our hope to end racial divisiveness. The biracial candidate who identified himself with his father’s ancestry was said to be post-racial. After all he was half white and half black.

It didn’t take long for a trusting America to encounter the first in a series of unprecedented racially offense remarks. At Obama’s Presidential Inauguration, of all places, the Rev. Joseph Lowery prayed for the “white” man, to “embrace what is right.” Lord knows we need to single out those greedy white folks to do what’s right. And, in an attempt to spread the discrimination around, the good reverend referred to Asians as the “yellow.”

Next, we were treated to the words of Eric Holder, Obama’s freshly appointed Attorney General, who accused white America of being racial “cowards.” That statement, in context of a 79.8% white America having just elected the first “black man” as President, was nothing less than astounding.

Then we were introduced to Obama’s nominee for Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. We discovered that Sonia Sotomayor, as a “wise Latina women” would reach “better” conclusions than a “white male.” CNN reported that her oft repeated remarks “sparked cries of racism from some Republicans.” Hmmm. Why wouldn’t her remarks spark cries of racism from all post-racial Americans? Surely, there are at least some post-racial Democrats out there.

Not to be outdone by his pastor, Mr. Obama himself, instinctively reacted, before having the facts, to defend his racially sensitive friend, Henry Gates Jr., by accusing a white police officer of acting “stupidly.” Of course, Obama was merely trying to create a teachable beer-summit moment. Maybe he could have calibrated his words better. Too bad he couldn’t calibrate his worldview.

Lastly, at least for now, on the Obama post-racial roster is former “Green Czar,” Van Jones who resigned in shame after the New York Times, I mean FOX news, exposed him as a self-described Marxist who just happened to be a 9/11 “truther” and blatant racist. Jones believes that “white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities.”

I think the racists in the left wing are more than upset. Many are just plain mad.
