Frankly My Dear, Charges of Racism have Lost their Impact

You might be a racist if you:

  • Don’t like illegal immigration
  • Think the Government should stay out of your Healthcare
  • Ever attended a TEA Party or Patriot Group meeting
  • Dare verbalize dissent with a Democrat

Watching Juan Williams on Fox News this weekend, I am amazed at just how shrill his voice has become when defending Obama.

“Some of those signs were downright disrespectful of the President;” Williams lamented about the TEA Party protests.

I suppose he has forgotten how little respect former President Bush received from his party. But to Williams and others on the left, it’s all OK because Bush is white. Obama deserves respect because he is the first black president.

Merriam-Webster defines racism as:
Pronunciation: \ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm alsoˌshi-\
Function: noun
Date: 1933

1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2 : racial prejudice or discrimination

Main Entry: rac·ism
Pronunciation: \ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm alsoˌshi-\
Function: noun
Date: 1933

1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2 : racial prejudice or discrimination

So Williams believes Obama is somehow worthy of respect because he is black and president. Sounds like Williams and the Democrats need to read a dictionary. You will not find the word disrespect under racism. Nor will you find the word disagree under the definition for racism. Because you can both disagree and disrespect someone without being a racist, regardless of the color of the person’s skin.

No, the reason the Democrats hurl the accusations of racism as freely as Obama is spending our money is because they have no logical argument. When they pull the race card, they are admitting defeat and trying to change the argument.

But to toss around such a serious accusation frivolously diminishes the impact and meaning of the word.

Remember the impact of the phrase “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn” when Rhett Butler first shocked audiences on the big screen?

Damn was not a word taken lightly. It is so hideous in meaning that it was never spoken. And when it was, the impact was profound.

Now, the F-bomb is tossed around like, well, like charges of racism.

And calling someone a racist is becoming like saying “damn you”. It is no longer a serious charge to be taken seriously. It is simply another curse word in the English language.

Pity, that.

This is one word that should have been saved for those times when true racism reared it’s ugly head. Not bantered about with callous disregard in lieu of a reasoned argument.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
