Just Call them Racist! The Progressive primer on how to vanquish the Rightwing and Fox News

Newt Gingrich and Howard Dean both left pants on the ground regarding the Shirley Sherrod Racism incident in their interviews with Fox News Chris Wallace.

We learned earlier this month that a leftwing group affiliated with the website “Journolist” have plans in place to defeat those who they consider enemies by hurling the Leftwing invective “Racist” at enemies whether they are Racist or not and whether there is evidence of the charge or not.

Many of these “Journalists” write for major newspapers around the country so they regularly access and influence the public square of ideas. In fact they may have helped get Barry Hussein Soetoro elected president by quashing unfavorable stories about him while targeting his opponents with negative and detrimental stories.(see previous post)

The Leftwing has discovered that they can race-bait all they want and at the same time if they want to defeat someone who they perceive is on the right all they have to do is identify them a Racist whether the charge is true or not.

Apparently, the “Racist” epithet is so heinous that when it was reported that a member of the Soetoro administration had made some racist statements at an NAACP meeting the Soetoro administration immediately called for and got Shirley Sherrod’s resignation.

And I think this threads the needle. If the right forces us all to either defend [Rev. Jeremiah] Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? This makes *them* sputter with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.—Spencer Ackerman

So in a recent Chris Wallace Fox News interview Newt Gingrich and Howard Dean, on the subject of Ms. Sherrod, look foolish. What was interesting is how politically inept and transparent both of these men were.

Gingrich ineptness shows every time he shoots his mouth off before he knows the facts. Wallace was ready to show Mr. Gingrich his pattern of commenting on situations before knowing the facts. If Gingrich aspires to run for the presidency, he’ll need to improve much in this area.

I've made a career standing up to that kind of stuff and I think that was a mistake on the part of the Obama administration. But I'm not going to let the right wing press off the hook on this. –Howard Dean

However, Howard Dean is just a straight Partisan Pol who disregards facts as most cats avoid water. It was clear that Dean by his own statement was there to call Fox News Racist and smash Rightwing News through a plate-glass window to let them know that there is a cost for reporting on Leftwing Racism thereby putting Rightwing News in a constant state of fear.

However when confronted with the facts as Chris Matthews forced Dean to do, Dean still insisted that there was a Racist somewhere (that wasn’t Democrat) and he was going to find him or her and make them live in a constant state of fear.

“[R]aise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a right-winger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear.”— Spencer Ackerman

GINGRICH: I have on occasion sided with the NAACP's characterizations. All I'm suggesting, and I think it's very worrisome to people:

If the Obama Administration is this afraid of Glenn Beck, how do they deal with the Iranians? I mean, if, if they a news show forces this level of...
DEAN: There may be some similarities, Newt. There may be some similarities.

What is interesting is that both Gingrich and Dean seemed to acknowledge and agreed that the way the Soetoro administration fired Shirley Sherrod and mishandled this latest Racism from the White house flap it is becoming clear that the real Racists are in the White house and live in a state of constant fear.

To which both men laughed in agreement.
