We Are All Racists Now

Good grief! I always thought Maureen Dowd was simply a clueless self-centered whiney bratty liberal occasional plagiarist, but clearly I underestimated her: she’s all that and more!

Not content with writing her usual screeds, lifting a paragraph here and there from pals, and basically baring all her post-menopausal insecurities for the world to see, Ms. Dowd is now making things up out of whole cloth.

In her latest “opinion piece“, Dowd has fabricated, and then reacted to, an imagined quote shouted by Joe Wilson during President Obama’s State of Obamaland speech to the Congress last Wednesday evening. As we all know by now, Rep. Wilson shouted, “You lie,” as the President assured Congress and the nation that illegal immigrants would not be covered by HR32oo HR3200, the bill he was discussing at the time.

Bizarrely, Ms. Dowd’s fevered imagination heard not a rude-but-understandable knee-jerk reaction to a proveable falsehood proclaimed by the president , but instead a racist threat. Or in her words:

Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t.

But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!

Poor Maureen! She then goes on to use this auditory hallucination as a springboard to accuse pretty much everyone on the right of unmitigated racism, tossing out lovely descriptors like “shrieking lunacy,” frantic efforts,” “frothing response from paranoids”…

I’ve been loath to admit that the shrieking lunacy of the summer — the frantic efforts to paint our first black president as the Other, a foreigner, socialist, fascist, Marxist, racist, Commie, Nazi; a cad who would snuff old people; a snake who would indoctrinate kids — had much to do with race…

…unable or unwilling to realize that those adjectives are merely describing herself.

Among lots of other commentary about La Diva Dowd, Snark and Boobs tells her off in a post super-saturated with, well, snark, ending with:

It’s funny, that – once again, the people constantly hurling the “Racist!” slur at others seem to be the people whom only see color. What is THAT called, hmmm, Maureen?

Most people call it “projection.”

But to Maureen “I hear racists” Dowd and so many others, it’ll always be about racism. Because we’re all racists now.

    It’s normally best just to dismiss vermin like Dowd and the filth who listen with credulity to what it spews.

  2. Kay B. Day says:

    I guess she couldn’t find a good quote to plagiarize.

  3. Doug says:

    Projection 101, I think because one of the few college courses I have taken is psych 101. It’s caused by denial, if the paper read on the subject was properly understood. The ill person cannot accept their own mental state so they have to project it onto somebody else.

    If She heard a “boy” in there, then the maggots of racism are clearly in her head. Even though I am a right wing nut job according to those birds Ms. Dowd flocks with, I am accepted and comfortable in neighborhoods and settings where she would likely opt out.

    If Ms. Dowd and her ilk are “normal” then I’m going to be whatever label they throw at me as long as the Good Father lets me keep what sense I have.

    Maureen Dowd’s column had the potential to be reckless, but upon further investigation — her “gut” on Joe Wilson seems to hit the mark. A closer examination of Joe Wilson’s background and past supports her senses.

    No, we are not all racists.

    But a far more destructive line of thinking is that “no one is racist” unless they just so happen to get caught on videptape burning crosses at a Klan rally.

  7. jonolan says:

    Ah yes, the presumption of innocence does not apply if a Liberal or Minority can accuse your of racism. 😉

  8. MODI says:

    I don’t think that this is what I stated at all.

    Presumtion of innocence is a good thing.

    Refusal to do some leg work and draw a reasonable conclusion despite a preponderance of evidence is a bad thing.

  9. jonolan says:

    But, in cases like this, what IS evidence? Unless there’s an overt act of some sort, any cry of racism is just supposition at best.; at worst and more common it is a cynical ploy to denigrate the opposition.
