White Man Can’t Catch A Break

Conservatives have called for the fainting couches because actor Morgan Freeman dared call the Tea Party racist, which resulted in the predictable racist response.

Proving just how not racist the modern Republican Party is, Texas Illinois Teanut Congress Critter Rep. Joe Walsh complains that the mean old lamestream media has offered President Obama nothing but sloppy wet kisses because of the usual blackety-black-black reasons:

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said the media protect President Obama and will work to get him reelected because he is black.

“This guy pushed every one of the media’s buttons,” Walsh said in an interview with the Media Research Center. “He was liberal, he was different, he was new, he was black. Oh my God, it was the potpourri of everything.”

Walsh was responding to a question from Media Research Center President Brent Bozell about the “race warfare games” of the Obama administration.

“They are so vested in our first black president not being a failure that it’s going to be amazing to watch the lengths they go to to protect him,” Walsh said. “They, I believe, will spout this racist line if some of their colleagues up here aren’t doing it aggressively enough. There is going to be a real desperation.”

Sure the media are the racists here, and it’s the white people who are so oppressed and everyone is so mean to them, and it’s so unfair! Why, every time I turn on the TeeVee there’s nothing but white people portrayed as lazy, shiftless criminals and crack addicts and losers! And how come there are no white people in prominent positions at the networks?

When, pray tell, will a white man catch a break in the biased news media? When?!

  1. Illinois, not Texas. Texas is bad enough without the additional burden of Rep. Deadbeat Dad. Although it would be handy if we could crowd them all into one state and wall it off.

  2. I would think almost all of us white folks over the age of fifty who grew up during the Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson or Nixon presidencies must have surely grappled with personal feelings of superiority if not outright disdain and prejudice against black people. There were those that never felt it, of course. Natural liberals who always understood the common struggles and the brotherhood and sisterhood of all peoples. But most of us were a product of the culture in which we lived. just as I struggled with racism and homophobia in my youth. Those who cry out the loudest how they do not suffer from this particular affliction are surely the worst offenders. I had to give Bush a pass when he complained to Matt Lauer that it truly hurt him when Kanye West was quoted as saying that “Bush doesn’t care about black people.” Perhaps it was his outsize ego that was bruised. Still, it seems an odd point to make given the turbulence and controversy surrounding so much of his presidency.

    The current right-wing meme is strictly out of the playbook of the Tea Party founding father, Rush Limbaugh. Who could forget his thoughtful insight into black athletes infiltrating the NFL which cost him a job at ESPN and ownership of a team? ”I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve.”

    The idiots commenting at FOX news blogs are no better.

    • I had forgotten that whole “the media wants a black quarterback to do well” thing from Rush. Good catch.

      It’s this resentment about losing their privilege. We hear this stuff from Pat Robertson and the like, everything is the fault of the blacks, the Hispanics, the gays, the feminists — every person who stepped up and said no to the notion of white male privilege. And a lot of white males said no to that too,.

  3. ““Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

    Bush is a sociopath, he doesn’t care about people. He doesn’t PRETEND to care about black people.

    The Tea Party are racist, dimwit sheeple, the “Know Nothing Pary V 2..0”.
