Words have meanings – Socialist does not mean black, but doofus still means doofus

 

As further evidence that the left wants to control your life and shape the direction of humanity – whether you agree or disagree; whether it goes against your values or not; whether it goes against the Constitution or not – it is now apparently inappropriate to call a thing what it is.  Wrap it instead in the cloth of prejudice to inflame your minions.  No dissent permitted…this is our future under the left.

Shame on McCain and Palin for using an old code word for black

By Lewis Diuguid, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist

The “socialist” label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.

J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality.

Those freedom fighters included the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the Civil Rights Movement; W.E.B. Du Bois, who in 1909 helped found the NAACP which is still the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization; Paul Robeson, a famous singer, actor and political activist who in the 1930s became involved in national and international movements for better labor relations, peace and racial justice; and A. Philip Randolph, who founded and was the longtime head of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and a leading advocate for civil rights for African Americans.

McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare.

Shame on McCain and Palin

Time to be patriotic

So says Joe Biden….

“We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”

I believe Joe has a fundamental flaw in his understanding.  Those of us who have been paying taxes have been ‘part of the deal’ all along.  Those of us who vote…part of the deal.  Those of us who run a business, employ people, contribute to our communities, pay our bills, purchase things…we’ve jumped in.  Those of us who hold politicians accountable – that’s part of the deal.  I would suggest that it’s the ego of politicians and the greed of some businesses that have gotten us in a rut.  It’s the do-nothing Congress that has gotten us in a rut.  It’s the power hungry elected official (local, state and federal) that has weakened this country.

Tying patriotism to taxes has to be one of the stupidest and most offensive things I’ve heard.

Biden, what a patriot!

Biden, what a patriot!

Hi Joe!  You’re still a Doofus
