This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:
I previously wrote about accusations by Princeton Professor Cornel West that Obama was racist. Against blacks.
Now West lays into Obama again. It speaks for itself, and is causing all sorts of liberal angst:
But there’s a way in which this whole controversy looks like progressives devouring their own tail.
Indeed. This is what happens when you coddle and encourage false accusations of racism for political and website traffic purposes. When what went around comes back around, you really have no defense. If George Bush hated black people because (insert standard nonsense reason here), why not Obama? It’s absurd, of course, but the natural result of the race card industry.
But I’m not going to get in the middle of it, defend it, criticize it, or otherwise. I’m just going to sit back and watch the show.
Pass the popcorn.
