One of the Repugnicans’/wingnuts’ interesting tactics is to call a liberal/progressive “racist” for simply bringing up the issue of race at all.*
Because the wingnuts/Repugnicans, you see, are totally color-blind! (As thoroughly evidenced by the brown-skinned Repugnican National Committee head Michael Steele and Louisiana Gov. Bobby “Not Ready for Prime Time” Jindal!)
Yet interestingly, we see things like the distribution of a CD including the song “Barack the Magic Negro” from a candidate for the Repugnican National Committee, and the Repugnican mayor of a small city in the red county of Orange County in Southern California is resigning after having sent out an e-mail containing this image:
The tag line for the image? “No Easter egg hunt this year.”
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
(The Associated Press reports that the mayor, Dean Grose, “claimed he was unaware of the racial stereotype linking black people with eating watermelons.” Yeah, right. If he truly had been unaware of that, then why would the image have been worth sharing via e-mail? If he truly had been unaware of the meaning of the watermelons, wouldn’t the image have been nonsensical to him? Why the fuck would he have shared an image that was nonsensical to him? [Q: How can you tell when a Repugnican is lying? A: When his or her lips are moving!])
The watermelons-on-the-White-House-lawn image is as funny as were the Aunt Jemima-like “Obama Waffles” that were sold at the wingnuts’ Values Voters Summit in September:

Because blatant fucking racism is one of the “values voters'” values.
But I’m the racist for even discussing this, you see.
Clearly, the Civil War never really ended.
Clearly, there is a sizeable chunk of so-called Americans who have a real problem with the race of the man whom the majority of us Americans elected to the White House.
Clearly, we, the majority of the American people, who voted for Barack Obama, need to put these racists in their place — bloodlessly, hopefully, but that will be up to the racist wingnut traitors, who already are talking about the violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of the United States of America.
*One of the wingnut traitors tried this tactic on me recently in a comment of his on my recent post about the idea of the secession of the red states, which, I believe, garnered more hits than anything else I’ve posted.
