It's Racist To Call Someone A Socialist?

HuffPo CSM* explains it all -- and they're serious. Racism, the all-purpose trump card. You can't make up stuff like this, nobody'd believe it.

Last line of the article:


"Christopher J. Lee is a professor of history at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he teaches courses on the history of race and racism."

Nope, no bias there.

Pathetic. Anything to intimidate the opposition.

That's the Christian Science Monitor, not the Huffpo.

The State takes a percentage of what one group of slaves deemed less deserving make and then gives it and a great deal of empty promises to another group of hoodwinked slaves. The State doesn't produce anything. If those enlightened Progressives described by the author believe the State can "provide much-appreciated public services for the common good" out of thin air, they are truly slaves of their own false perceptions.

Progressives line up with hands thrust out for what their country can take from fellow citizens as long as they can be deceived that it costs them little personally. But everyone pays a lot sooner or later in many ways, large and small. The greatest cost is our loss of self-determination and liberty.

I'm amused by the writer's incredulousness about "Mao and Hitler as ideological comrades?" Yeah, gee, it's not like they were both fanatical, mass-murdering totalitarian dictators who saw the State are greater than the individuals comprising it...

D.W.: Ooops, I fix. Thank you!

Of course it is 'hidden racism'. Liberals can't figure that some people actually mean the words that are coming out of their mouths rather than double-speak and entendres--what passes for clever at cocktail parties and fundraisers.

If all you study is racism, then that's all you're going to see in any issue. But to folks like Lee, racism cannot exist towards whites either, that's part of his ideological bias as well.

I meant to add 'to them' to my first sentence.
