Â Â Â Â A couple weeks agoÂ I had the carpets cleaned, We have some rental property and use the same guy and always find time to sit after and brag on the Grand children, he has twelve to my two.Super Tuesday was a couple days past and I asked him what he thought of the fact depending on how the primary races playedÂ out,Â a Black man was going to be the next President or vice president of the United States. He just shook his head and sipped his ice tea as we sat on the patio. Never thought I would see it in my life time he remarked or hers he said tapping the newest photo of his grand daughterÂ he had toÂ share.Â Rush Limbaugh laughed offÂ the prospect of a black man on the democratic ticket today, the majority of his listeners are white evangelical neoconservative Christians, Who I suspect still use the n-word amongst themselves, in public they wash it up and sayÂ myÂ goodness isn’t thatÂ black man or woman so veryÂ â€articulateâ€ as a wayÂ to convey their fear of African Americans in power, and thatâ€™s what racism is at its heart, fear.
Today Rush decided to stretch the margin a tad, The slurs against the Senators religious faith have failed to draw much attention which leaves the rabid right with a single slur to run up the flag pole, Mighty white of Rush to appeal to the Black man doing a white woman image, And it will track for a couple weeks.
The snake kissing evangelicals fail to reckon on the flaw in Rushes call to defend America from the influence of a â€œthoseâ€ people.
America became a multiracial society a couple election cycles ago,Â someone needs toÂ tell theÂ champions of White ChristianÂ America,Â The sin of racialÂ M-I-S-C-E-G-E-N-A-T-I-O-NÂ isÂ almost a decade old reality.Â And its worseÂ than the sonâ€™s of the south could haveÂ ever imagined, turns out every person on the planet today is the descendant of a three foot tall â€œBlackâ€ woman who lived in Africa.Â I would outline theÂ science andÂ explain the genetics for ya but IÂ suspect I lost most ofÂ the folks who listen to Rush at the word miscegenation.Â
Rush is the King of Hate radio and millions ofÂ people will follow his cue now that the plan to edge Hillary out by praising Barack has failed, FOX and MSNBC will be more subtle in the approach but it will be race baiting by association, they will not attack the Senator directly it will be the â€œCharacterâ€ of his surrogatesÂ they call into question.Â
TheÂ tactic Rush and the rest of the his kind will use can be very effective,Â the majority of whiteÂ voters have no problem with electingÂ a blackÂ man President,Â soÂ they will askÂ Americans to consider this.
Do you wantÂ four years of Jesse Jackson and Al sharptonÂ in the circleÂ power,Â Swift boating Captains will dig up Photos of Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley inÂ hope they can convince enough people that its not a vote against Barack, its keepingÂ â€Peopleâ€ like Shapton and Jackson fromÂ influencing policy.
And it will work ifÂ the response teams are not prepared forÂ every possible smear and innuendo the GOP and cable networksÂ can muster.Â
IfÂ the Democratic ticket can pull its act together and cut the racistâ€™s off at the knees, the election will be a debate overÂ the economy and the war and John McCain, honorable and decent man that he is will lose by a wider margin than Walter Mondale did.that’s my view, yourâ€™s may be different.
