Chris Matthews asks: Is Sarah Palin a poster girl for racism? (See video)

I have been searching for a video clip of this segment on Wednesday, August 6, 2009, Chris Matthews’ Hardball, MSNBC.  If I had not seen it, I would have trouble believing it, and it left me offended, sick, and speechless.

His guests are Kathleen Parker, Washington Post, and Joan Walsh, Salon, and he opened the segment with this, referring to an article that Kathleen Parker had written.

Matthews:

“Here`s a quote that really grabbed me: “That same rage was on display again in the fall of 2008, but this time the frenzy was stimulated by a pretty gal with a mocking little wink. Sarah Palin may not have realized what she was doing. But southerners, weaned on Harper Lee, heard the dog whistle.”

Chris to Kathleen – “heard the dog whistle?” Is Sarah Palin a poster girl for racism? Yes or no.”

Then they proceed with a discussion about To Kill a Mocking Bird, the “racist south” which is a haven for “republicans” and how that “pitting” a white woman (Palin) against a black man, as in Obama, some how brings up visions of a black man raping a white woman.  In 2009, they are making references like this, Chris talking about the “cul de sacs of whitedom.”  To tell the truth, it is people like Chris Matthews who live down the cul de sacs of whitedom.  Talk about sterotypes!  Do you think these folks should move on into the 21 century?

You will have to hear it for yourself.  Here’s a video of the segment.

Lanny Davis urges “respect for other people’s opinions” Too Funny

After writing that: the  “shout downs” organized by the Republican right meet one of the classic definitions of “fascist” tactics–There is literally no defense to these tactics, says Lanny Davis.

(Note:  Do you really think the republicans could organize something this successful? That’s a laugh.)

Lanny Davis ‘splains his remarks in an email to Michelle Malkin, saying, in part:

“I believe that thoughtful and civil people on the left and the right share a desire for debate and have respect for other people’s opinions. This is fundamental to a civil society and our great democracy. In my post, I only wished to protest strongly those who believe it is acceptable to attend a meeting for the purpose of disrupting and preventing honest and vigorous debate.

I take the same position if it is people on the left side of the spectrum who use such tactics as those on the right side.”

Awww.  Suddenly we want to have “thoughtful and civil debate” and “respect for other people’s opinions?”  Anybody who has spent any time on the internet has found out pretty quickly that the Obama people are the least tolerant of all and there is absolutely no tolerance for “other people’s opinions.”

And President Obama has said that “community organizing” is the highest of callings.

What hypocrisy for their side to now call protests at the town hall meetings “angry mobs.”  Very funny.  Pretty “fishy,” too.
