RAAAAACIST charge reveals something else [Darleen Click]
Chris Hayes hissy-fit over Romney’s ads over welfare is boring over the fact it is entirely predictable. He’s charging racism because the ad doesn’t have any black people in it.
You will note in the Romney ads, there is not a single African-American that appears in them. [...]
They (Romney campaign) understand what the history of the racial subtext is, but they also understand how that appeal and that charge that that person is taking your tax dollars and giving it someone else, how it resonates in the Obama era in which you do not have to state the race of who that recipient is.
YAWN. I mean, there is nothing but nothing that can’t or won’t be called ‘racist’ if the words are uttered by anyone opposed to Obama or his Left dogma.
But what is most interesting in this video –
– is that Chris Hayes is arguing from the position that criticizing redistribution of wealth, itself is suspect.
It is very difficult when you look at the history of attacks on redistribution, the attacks on redistribution particularly around welfare have had a very loaded racial subtext forever.
The Left narrative has shifted yet again — redistribution of wealth is a “given,” something that is not to be discussed. And the questioning of it is only done by people with unclean motives.
Charges of ‘racism’ are just a distraction to get people to accede that point.
