Saturday Night Card Game (Salute to the Vuvuzela)
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:
Last week I featured a “Breaking News” video of NY Freedom Party leader Charles Barron, a New York City councilman, insisting that attempts to ban the blowing of Vuvuzelas at the World Cup were racist.
Because the Vuvuzela is their musical instrument being played in their country, South Africa.
Barron is running for Governor of New York State on the following platform:
Outspoken City Councilman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn) officially kicked off his “protest” run for governor yesterday, by announcing the formation of the Freedom Party, an all-black party. Noting how Cuomo picked a white running mate and how the other state office nominees are white, the Daily News reports that Barron said, “Don’t call us racists when we point out racism. This was supposed to be the post-racial society. Somebody should have told that to the New York State Democratic Party.”
I stand with you, Dear Leader.
To prove that I am worthy, I salute the Vuvuzela, in all its plastic, Made-in-China, annoying, this-year’s-Macharena-like glory:
And I’m not going to let him ruin the party:

1) "Post-racial" would seem to imply that one wouldn't take note of the race of someone's running mate. But I guess the Democrate definition is that it must be considered at all times (unless the person is a conservative, in which case it doesn't count – sorry Justice Thomas).
2) I hope Councilman Barron features the vuvuzela at all rallies and in all campaign ads – thus making sure he garners the support he deserves.
3) Interesting how the pro-vuvuzela video follows the cliché that, like children, vuvuzelas are better seen than heard.
