A direct quote from Sarah Palin's official, real-life Facebook page: "Mr President, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card."

That's right, any liberal black person who mentions their race is targeted as a racist in the eyes of a bagger.

yeah I saw my name on your thread, not surprising you resort to this.

...not surprising you resort to this.

Hmmm.. So tell us, are you also not surprised Sarah resorts to that?


btw, the original reference to you was meant in a humorous way knowing of the ongoing back-n-forth over you & she. On reflection, I realized the subject over-rode the humor & I changed the title.

eta: cross post with oz who also recognized the salient point.

peace

Interesting how a few bilge haters can turn MLK day into a Sarah bashing. For MLK, hate was too much a burden. Carry on.

I read the link and duh! there it was. Then I thought how ironic it was that the preachers of hate are using MLK day(a man that chose LOVE over Hate) to celebrate their burden. lol

As usual, Peffer mistakes "disdain" for "hatred", in an attempt to spread his own hatefulness!

Were MLK alive today, I do wonder whether folks like Sarah would stand up and be a fan.

But not for very long; it's a self-answering question. I doubt SP and the TP are aware of the irony of her facebook post.

the most constantly racist people I know are lefties... the racist card is meant to trump all other 'arguments' and is trotted out at every opportunity... but don't expect them to 'get it'... let alone, 'get on with life'

And Obama, in observing as he did the other day that convictions (and incarceration) for pot offences are more common among lower class (who also frequently happen to be latinos and blacks) than among the middle class (who also frequently happen to be white) was actually "playing the race card" rather than describing reality?

Up here, First Nations people have far higher rates of suicide, conviction and incarceration, addictions, some types of chronic disease, etc. Inuit men living in the North are 40X (yep, forty) as likely to commit suicide as their counterparts in Canada's south.

Is it "playing the race card" for a Lefty (or a First Nations person) to compile and quote the stats? Or for a policy guy from another political persuasion to not do so?

They would treat his assassination the same way they justify the murder of Trayvon Martin.

Nope, in their mind, Obama and his angry black wife are the "real racists"

'either-or' or the extreams... re read my first sentenceI did. I'm not arguing that there aren't racist Lefties - there obviously are. I'm wondering if the reason you see more Left-racism than Right-racism has more to do with confirmation bias than reality.

Palin's comment, quoted in the OP, was racist ... and was doubtless widely supported by her followers. None of whom will have recognized any racism in SP's post ... and each of whom will support her notion that Obama is constantly spewing racist "race card" garbage. Maybe he does sometimes, though I've not recognized it (my own confirmation bias?). Most of his comments touching race I've seen reported ... looking in the international media rather than US based ... are kinda like what he said the other day about pot convictions.

Which is observational, and simply true. Put enough such observations together and one sees that society has a particular structural character in which certain groups are indeed disadvantaged. Which is when people are accused of playing the "race card."

Seems there's nothing racist about passing laws that make it hard for people of color to vote, but pointing out that those laws actually do so is racist.

It's more interesting how Sarah Palin can turn MLK Day into a political screech.
I think it's more interesting that if MLK started preaching about God at a DNC. Convention he would be shouted down.

I think it's more interesting that if MLK started preaching about God at a DNC. Convention he would be shouted down.MLK littered his speeches with Biblical allusions, and even those allusions are roundly quoted by progressives - agnostic, atheist, and believer.

But it's true, I agree that a really-and-truly sermon with all the God and Scripture references one might expect in a church ... would be strongly felt as out of place at the DNC. Even by the believers. Separation of Church and State and all that.

Are you suggesting that there'd be a different reception at at the Rep's analagous convention? Constitutionally, is that a good thing?

Obama didn't invoke God in his nomination speeches? :confused: And he was shouted down when he did? :confused:

It is true that god didn't fare too well at the DNC,.....that is until Obama stepped in and forced it on the delegates like castor oil down a child's throat. The price of votes get higher and higher every election. Some votes you can buy with more welfare, and some by invoking god. Just think for a moment, if there was a limit on gods, then gods would become a priceless commodity. It's a good thing Man can create as many gods as needed for the occasion.
