Time to play “you might be a racist if”

Posted by: ST on October 21, 2008 at 7:38 pm

You might be a racist if … you call Barack Obama a socialist. How did I find this out? Lewis Diuguid, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist, said so, in spite of the dictionary’s definition of the word “socialism” as being:

Main Entry: so·cial·ism
Pronunciation: \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\
Function: noun
Date: 1837
1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2 a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

Sounds like the junior Senator from Illinois to me, contrary to what certain analysts and race-baiters want you to believe.

    You don’t even have to say the “s” word to be a racist. All you need to do is live in certain parts of the country.

    Western Pennsylvania, for example. Who says so? John Murtha.

    Of course, now he’s backtracking and apologizing. His constituents aren’t racists. They’re just rednecks. Yeah, that’s sooooo much better. I’m sure he meant that in the most complimentary way. l-)
