Racial coding allows progressives to point to anything a conservative says, or doesn’t say, and call it racism. This is what enables them to dismiss all criticism of Obama as racism, and to divert attention from their own raging racism. How can the left condemn criticism of Obama as racist and yet attack black Republicans Allen West, Mia Love, Condoleeza Rice, or Herman Cain? Because the left holds itself to be incapable of racism; hence there will be no outcry from them about purported comedian Bill Maher’s comment that Rep. West belongs to “the Party of the Apes.” Imagine the media feeding frenzy if Rush Limbaugh had said that about Obama.
Gleiberman’s frothing attack on 2016 reaches an insane crescendo when he labels it “the moral equivalent of the old anti-Semitic propaganda hoax The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” So an intellectually defensible critique of Obama’s worldview is just as heinous as a fake document designed to demonize Jews and justify their genocide. You have to give Gleiberman credit for creativity, if not a sense of moral or historical proportion.
As I’ve written before, opposition to Obama’s “otherness,” as the left is fond of calling it, has nothing to do with his skin color and everything to do with his rejection of American exceptionalism and his anti-capitalist, anti-American, pro-Islamist, divisively racist, agenda. There is not a single shred of evidence, outside of the fevered imagination of increasingly desperate progressives, that Mitt Romney is running a race-baiting campaign.
If I were a Democrat, I would be mortified that my team had nothing more politically and philosophically substantial to offer in this upcoming presidential contest than perpetual, phantasmic accusations of racism directed at the opposition. But the left has nothing else. They cannot tout Obama’s disastrous economic policies. They cannot claim that the world “likes” us more now, in the wake of his abominable treatment of our allies and his contemptible embrace of and/or submission to our enemies. They cannot defend his racial polarization of a nation that elected him to be a unifier. They cannot point to the election promises he failed to keep. They have nothing positive to attract voters to their policies, so their platform must consist only of smears.
