I typically like to start my articles with a relevant quote upon which I can build my story. After reading the bit of news about which I am writing, I scoured the internet for a good quote; one that could adequately express the absurdity of what I had just read. I searched for 20 minutes, and could find nothing worthy. It seems that nothing quite captures the continuing ridiculousness of the Leftist media in a way that satisfies. They are truly scraping the bottom of the barrel—scratch that—the bottom of the barrel is long gone.
Ever since the 2008 campaign, when it was clear that Barack Obama would be the nominee for the Democrats, a race war has raged—not in real life, of course, but in the delusional minds of the Left. In a staggering effort to paint as racist anyone who opposed the most liberal President we’ve ever seen, the Leftist media has taken to simply making things up. They have frequently talked about racial “dog whistles;” claiming that Conservatives use terms like “liberal,” “golf,” and even “Obama” as a code to demean the first black President.
These absurd claims of racism have been going on for quite some time, but MSNBC has sunk to a rather chuckle-worthy new low. According to Martin Bashir, the new racial dog whistle is…….wait for it……..”IRS.”
“Republicans are using [the IRS scandal] as their latest weapon in the war against the black man in the White House…’IRS’ is the new “N****r.”
Remember back when you were a teenager, and your parents said something with which you strongly disagreed? Remember how–even when you knew they were 100% correct—you found all sorts of ways to dismiss what they were saying; even reaching into the absurd to justify yourself? Yeah, Liberals are still those teenagers; while Conservatives have grown into the adults.
It cannot possibly be that Conservatives dislike Obama because of the unbearably slow economic recovery, the overhaul of 1/6 of our economy with Obamacare, or his disturbing stance on abortion; it must be that we are racist! Everything he has accomplished is so great; there can be no other reason. End of conversation.
Liberals are in such denial regarding how poorly Obama has performed that they must resort to acting like immature teenagers in order to stay afloat in their own little dreamworld.
Conservatives use facts, while Liberals use fantasy. Unfortunately, a large swath of Americans will drink up what is being said by Bashir, simply because he’s on TV. Our electorate is so dull that they will hear Bashir connect “IRS” with “N****r,” and that will be the end of it. There will be little, if any attempt to critically pursue the truth.
While the truth may set you free; fantasy is often more fun in the short-term. At this point, fantasy is the only thing that’s keeping the Democratic Party alive. I hope the fairy dust wears off soon, or we’re going to be stuck in Oz forever.
