Chris Matthews Is
Gettin' Upset About
Constant Use Of
'Racist Code Words'!
Racist Code Word?
"They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That's another thing that sends that message - this guy's helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the 'burbs."
Hielemann helpfully interpreted Matthews statement, presumably for those too challenged to understand basic words (or as we in the business refer to them - Hardball viewers), by making this jaw-dropping statement:
"There's a lot of black people in Chicago."
As I said on Twitter last night: [start at bottom & read upward]
Somebody needs to ask Matthews: if you're the one that keeps hearing the dog whistle, who's the dog? This is nothing more than projection, race-obsessed Progressives turning around and accusing their political opponents of being.....race-obsessed.
As Ace of Spades opined:
Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, and the whole brain trust at MSNBC seem to be playing some warped version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon called Six Degrees of Racial Dog Whistle. Give them any word a Republican says, and they will free associated it with other words to get to the "racist" claim they want to make.Pretty much.
Expect this to get more blatant - and comical - over the next 2 months as it slowly....oh so slowly....dawns on most of Obama's base that he's actually going to lose. After over a year of being told by their Collective Hive Mind that the mere HINT that any of those Republican candidates in the primaries stood even a ghost of a chance of beating Obama was a stupid thought, and having been reflexively taught to laugh loudly at the idea of MITT ROMNEY being the one to usher Obama out of the White House, the Progressive base is confused.
All of a sudden, their leaders have done a 180 and the panic is palpable. Carville, Michael Moore, David Axelrod & Jim Messina grow more and more strident screaming at the base to get up off their asses and send in $ and 'get in their faces' and for the past 3 months the only response they got was a fuzzy, just-woken-up-from-sleep "Huh....what? But....Obama's got this, man. It's in the bag. Romney? No WAY, dude!"
Nice going there, Hive Mind. Good luck turning that ship around.
Gonna be awesome to see what the next couple of words will be that Matthews & Co. decide are new racist dog whistles.
To help everybody keep track of those new racist dog whistles Republicans are constantly using to send secret racist messages to each other, Michelle Malkin has compiled a list with examples:
You know, words like 'jobs', 'economy', 'Constitution', 'Chicago', 'golf'. There are so many. Hard to keep track, isn't it? So thanks to Michelle for the legwork here!
Watch how artfully Ed Schultz on MSNBC 'discovers' a NEW code word Republicans are using to communicate surreptitiously between themselves:
"American". No, really. That's the new code word for 'birther'. Watch the lunacy unfold:
Damn you , Ed Schultz & your brilliant dog-whistle detectin' ears! Now we gotta go find a whole new word to substitute for birther! This is even more depressing than Buzzfeed exposing our plans for the coming RAAAAAAACEWAAAAAR! I may have to start drinking.
Over 60 more days of this high comedy to go!
Really awesome how MSNBC hosts can so quickly discover all the new code words us Republicans are using to secretly communicate our racist/birther beliefs with each other.
It's almost as if they are so obsessed with race/birtherism themselves as a way of dismissing any Republican statement on the issues that they're INVENTING these dog whistles they claim to keep hearing.
But I admit that could just be me. I'm not a dog, so I never hear these supposed whistles when they go off.
