Ta-Nehisi Coates: It’s RAAACIST for Tagg Romney to joke about “taking a swing” at Obama

Posted by: ST on October 18, 2012 at 11:14 am

The left is in full freak-out mode over Mitt Romney’s son Tagg joking about wanting to take a swing at President Obama. First, the comments – via Politico:

Mitt Romney’s eldest son joked in a radio interview that he wanted to “take a swing” at President Barack Obama after Obama called his father a liar.

“Jump out of your seat and you want to rush down to the stage and take a swing at him,” Tagg said, laughing. “But you know you can’t do that because, well, first because there’s a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because that’s the nature of the process.”

North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye had asked Romney what it felt like “to hear the president of the United States call your dad a liar.”

It was an innocent, unscripted human moment on the campaign – and heartfelt, showing how a son is understandably being protective over his dad. You’d think the Romney campaign’s explanation that Tagg was just noting how stressful and frustrating running for office can be on a family would be enough, but unfortunately for the desperados on the left, this was indicative of a “violent” side to the Romney family and it should be, you know, investigated further. In fact, the Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, a black liberal, absurdly freaked out more so than others over Tagg’s remarks. Insinuating that Tagg was serious about wanting to “assault” President Obama, Coates blubbered:

Yes because a good whippin’ would teach that Obama boy to mind his place.

It’s worth trying to imagine any black man associated with a credible black candidate for the presidency, joking about beating down the incumbent president of the United States. Racism isn’t just in what you do and don’t say, but in the terrain you walk. It is baked in the cake — a fact which is hard to understand when you are the party of white people.

The mind-blowing stupidity pretty much speaks for itself. Coates would have you believe Tagg Romney would NOT have made the same remark had Romney had the exact type of battle with a white incumbent Democrat president. The basis of his remarks? TAGG ROMNEY IS WHITE. Did Coates think the same thing of Rev. Jesse Jackson when he talked about wanting to cut off candidate Obama’s balls back in 2008? Of course not.

Which brings us to the next question: Who is the real racist here? Tagg Romney for making an off the cuff remark about defending his dad, or Ta-Nehisi Coates, who sees a racist lurking behind every white Republican? Related to all this, I wonder how Coates feels about the volumes of vicious threats that have been issued on Twitter to Mitt Romney, and the vile rape threats against Ann Romney, many of which have come from black supporters of President Obama? Visit Twitchy.com and type in threats in the search engine and you’ll see what I’m talking about. I, along with several others, have been involved off and on in exposing these threats and pointing them out to the Secret Service’s Twitter account.

Coates’ response to these threats, some of which are ACTUAL racism and ACTUALLY serious in nature? Crickets chirping, of course.

Bill Jacobson at Legal Insurrection writes about the responses from other hyperventilating leftists, and points out their typical deliberate deceptive editing of the audio from the interview. You really cannot make this stuff up.

Parodies of left wing freak outs in progress really do not do them justice. This is how they react when they are on the ropes. Expect more of this abject nonsense over the next two and a half weeks, especially if Obama doesn’t see a noticeable bounce in the polls from the second debate and the last one.

“By any means necessary” and all that. Idiots.

    This fellow Tagg should have said what many Americans are thinking– take a spinning projectile to the Kenyan prince.

  2. david christensen says:

    Who doesn’t want to take a swing at Obama? Fortunately, Republicans are non-violent, but look at what Obama followers say about wanting to kill Mr. Romney. Where’s Obama’s civility on this?

  3. Gravelagitator says:

    Where is this poor soul’s outrage over the death threats to Romney from obonzo supporters (most of them black, by the way). Nothing racisist there, I certain.

  4. Drew the Infidel says:

    The comparative family dynamic in all this is the fact Tagg Romney was raised in a loving and nurturing household environment in which he saw his biological dad each day instead of twice in his entire life. The racial paranoia and immaturity of dangerous neurotic proportions in this Coates character should be investigated further. Desperate people say and do desperate things.

  5. Sirkowski says:

    Internet Tough Guy.

  6. TexasMom2012 says:

    I actually have no respect for any man or woman that wouldn’t stand up for their parents. Like Brad Pitt failing to stand up for his mother Jane Pitt. Tagg said he wanted to, not that he would actually attack Obama. The Romney’s sons seem to have learned self restraint unlike Obama who shoots his mouth off about inconsequential events with out knowing the facts, is the police acted stupidly! Or cherry picks his facts to promote his favored view ie it was the film not lax security or a planned attack, SCOAMF!

  7. Leeza says:

    I love and respect my president. I admire and agree with Coates. I’m proud to be a liberal. What have any of you done anywhere near to the level of either of these men’s accomplishment? Oh, yes, and do call folks who say things with which you disagree “idiots.” This for sure says what YOU, not they, are. Looking forward to voting for my president on Election Day!

  8. Sefton says:

    Oh, yes, and do call folks who say things with which you disagree “idiots.” This for sure says what YOU, not they, are.

    And who are these people?

    Or these people…

    Those people are proud liberals too.

  9. Dorothy Palmer says:

    Quite frankly, the Kenyan prince requires a savage comeuppance for what he has done to America. He was out to destroy this country. The Governor’s son was gentle with him compared to what many want to do to the Kenyan– and I suspect will.

  10. Arkie says:

    The Coates guy has obviously not gotten the memo. I don’t remember where I heard this but a Black conservative on a program I was watching said the professional race-baiters were furious with Obama because he’s yelled “racism” so often he’s squandered all the White guilt. But I hope they continue to make these preposterous allegations right up to election day. Obama doesn’t care about this, but the people who will really be harmed by the false accusations are individual Blacks who actually may be discriminated against. Good luck getting any redress after Obama has done his crying wolf to the point no one will ever again believe a real victim.
