The New Radicals vs. the "New" Racists

Not exactly “New” at being racist are they?

After what I can only describe as an amazing month of August with thousands of Americans going to Town Hall meetings with their elected representatives to express their views, the month of September actually managed to top it.

Specifically September 12, 2009 will for me be the date the New Radicals went from their birth in February, beyond baby steps, to outright learning to walk and talk.

People from all walks of life, all races, all levels of income, marched on Washington, DC to express their displeasure at the speed and expense of reforms initiated by Barack Obama and the Democrat led Congress.

The main message; slow down. Think about what you are doing and what will be the consequences of your actions. Don’t fix what isn’t broken, and take the time to do it right when you fix what is.

Contrary to what many are saying in the old guard main stream media, it’s not a movement born of hate; rather of love. Love of one’s own country, neighbors, and children. A love that says; “You don’t have to destroy to change”.

Now these people are being called “Racists™” and they don’t understand why.

Not so very long ago, they heard the words;

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, “WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!”

The United States of America is a country where the very founding was born of dissent, protest, and disagreement. In fact, reaching back to those historic protests in Boston Harbor is to invite the vilest of derogatory innuendo from those who seek to disparage and demoralize an entire section of America who happens to disagree with the methods and ideology of this administration.

Today it’s all changed. Today when they disagree with the President of the United States they are called racist and worse.

Even a certain bitter, inept ex-president is getting into the act.

To my way of thinking, someone who seems to always pull the race card out first is probably hiding some racist thoughts of their own.

Possibly Jimmy Carter’s head is stuck in the 1940s segregated south, or stuck someplace considerably darker (my preferred explanation), but after railing his Anti-Semitic rants against Israel in a book endorsed by none other than Osama Bin-Laden, he came out against the people of the United States calling them, in essence, racists;

“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African American,” Mr. Carter told an NBC interviewer.

“I think it’s bubbled up to the surface, because of a belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African Americans are not qualified to lead this great country.”

Carter only vocalizes what seemingly a majority of the left is already thinking; that anyone who disagrees with Barack Hussein Obama only does so because of the color of his skin, not the content of his character or lack thereof.

In honor of the start of the NFL football season, I’m throwing the B.S. flag on the race play.

Best stated by @snarkandboobs in her post here;

I’m really tired of trying to explain to the Left that they are the ones who see color everywhere and in everything and that they are reprehensibly diminishing true acts of real racism; in fact, they are diminishing and demeaning the entire Civil Rights movement.

Searching pictures of the recent 9/12 gathering in DC I’m hard-pressed to find examples of the racists cited by the leftist Jimmy Carter.

I don't see racists here

Nor here...

Here possibly

There’s at least one ex-president who should’ve stuck to building homes for the homeless. After he lent his name to Habitat for Humanity, it was forgotten or at least forgiven what a horrible job he did as President.

For Middle America, it’s all flooding back to us now.

Thanks, Mr. Carter.
