The neverending (white guilt racism) story

This is precisely why I’ve been pitching — quite seriously, too, though I allow that it comes off as cheeky — the following bumper sticker formulation, aimed specifically at white liberals and all those who last time around were convinced that voting for a media-created “historic” presidential candidate would once and for all insulate them against (groundless) charges of racism or racial bias: “Remember: Because voting booths are private, you can always just tell people you voted to re-elect Barack Obama, whether you were fool enough to pull the lever for him a second time or not.”

Print them up, give them out for free at coffee houses, universities, public schools, and union workshops.

Landslide, baby.

  1. “Gimme teh money! We stupid “smarter than you” asses made this mess, and now are going to put a gun to the head of anyone with half a brain to pay for it”

    Fucking assholes. What a hubris created nightmare we are barreling down on.

  2. Since that’s a black women making those arguments about white people, isn’t that racist?

  3. I prefer the other bumper sticker: “In 2008, you proved you weren’t a racist. In 2012, prove you’re not an idiot.”

    Various expletives may be inserted before the word ‘idiot,’ for effect.

  4. bahaaa haa haaaa …

    And, I’m not sure if I think Harris-Perry is an idiot because she forwards a stupid argument or because she’s black.

    Someone help me out here.

  5. I remember the same kind of nonsense before Giuliani won the mayoral election against the first First Negro of New York City. Even Clinton had the balls to suggest that racism would be the only possible reason that the thoroughly, embarrassingly incompetent David Dinkins could conceivably lose his reelection bid. For that reason alone, it gave me endless pleasure to watch his saddlebagged spouse endure the same moronic leftist tripe in ’08.

  6. Carin, I’ve pretty much reached the point where I think everyone’s an idiot until they prove otherwise. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me sooner.

    Of course, it occurred to me when I was 23, so…

  7. racist

    After a few caffeine-heavy refills at our corner table, I asked him about President Obama’s new effort to raise taxes on the wealthy, and Cain just about blew a blood vessel–especially when I mentioned the part where Obama says it’s about “math” not “class warfare.”

    “Can I be blunt? That’s a lie,” Cain said, before the sound of his voice began to rise noticeably higher. “You’re not supposed to call the president a liar. Well if you’re not supposed to call the president a liar, he shouldn’t tell a lie. If it’s not class warfare, it’s highway robbery. He wants us to believe it’s not class warfare, oh okay, it’s not class warfare. Pick my pockets, because that’s what he’s doing!”

    Cain paused, took a breath and looked at me.

    “I’m not mad at you, I just get passionate about this stuff,” he said. “I have to tell people because I get so worked up . . . . I’m listening to all this bullshit that he’s talking about, ‘fairness’ and ‘balanced approach’ to get this economy going.”

  8. I’m with McGehee. If you assume everyone’s a idiot, then you will be less likely to be disappointed when they say or do something stupid, and pleasantly surprised when they say or do something intelligent.

  9. Is Harris Perry asking us to weight Obama’s re-elect number? Grade his job performance on a curve? Spot him 15 or 20 electoral college votes for teh fairness?

  10. I’m gonna start a “racists for Cain” group.

    who’s with me?

  11. from ace:

    crackers for cain, honkies for herman

  12. Carin, re#4…both. If that qualifies me as a racist, so be it and I expect denouncement.

  13. Carin #10: Count me and my wife in.

  14. Every time I see someone preying on white liberal guilt, I can’t help but remember the old maxim “You can’t con an honest man.”

    I’m sure that means something.
