Daily Kos: Blame Dem Losses on Racism

Liberals don't want to believe that anyone would oppose the Obama agenda out of a principled stand against massive government spending and massive intervention in the free enterprise system. It's easier (and dirtier) to blame it all on racism. The leftist blog Daily Kos is keeping up that smear: "It's the black man in the White House, stupid." Michael Moore truly thrilled the blogger called "blackwaterdog" by claiming "Two years of a black man who secretly holds socialist beliefs being the boss of them is more than they can stomach. They've been sick to death since the night of 11/04/08 and they are ready to purge."

MSNBC should be so proud that this blogger frames this smear with a Rachel Maddow segment celebrating all the "achievements" of Democrat-dominated Washington in the last two years. (The lowlight is Maddow celebrating that the "bureaucracy" of private student loans has been removed and it's all wonderfully streamlined and nationalized now. Or Maddow celebrating how health care "reform" is the secret to reducing the horrendous national debt. Or...) Then came the Kosmonaut song sheet:

No one from the MSM will ever dare to say it, even if they think so, otherwise they'll never work in this town again. No one else in Washington is going to touch it with a mile long stick. But Michael Moore said it, and did it brilliantly, so i'm grateful.

I don't blame anyone who is unemployed or lost their home, and they really not in the mood to vote Democrats tomorrow. I can't judge anyone who can hardly bring themselves to get out of bed in the morning, and have very little desire to get out of bed tomorrow of all days, and go vote Democrats.

But this "Republican wave" - how scary, brrrrrr - is not about that. It's not about the "deficit", it's not about "government spending" - they couldn't care less about all this when they were in power. It's not about health care reform or Wall Street reform either. This is about the black man in the White House.

Hitler signs, Stalin signs - always amuses me how those ignorants can't tell the difference - Fox News lies, smears and nastiness, racists emails, "Magic Negro", all that started a long time before President Obama made even one move. Way before health care reform, and even before the stimulus - which not even one economist will argue that it didn't prevent second depression and if anything was too small - it was all a growing reaction to the election of the first black president.

And it's not just the average ignorant teabagger. Their people in Washington are all students of John "that one" McCain. Bone-Head and the rest of the gang just can't stand the sight of a black man calling the shots in this country. Their complete and shameless disrespect for the president of the United States, goes far beyond their regular treatment of a blue president. 

At the bottom of the blog is a pile of Obama-loving photos, and at the very bottom is a picture illustrating Obama "keeping hope alive." It's a black man kneeling before Obama's motorcade as if he was having a religious moment. That's where the Kosmonauts think the conservatives should be: on their knees, in tribute to "hope."
