One of the grossest sins of leftist ideology is the practice of reverse racism – that is, accepting racist and hateful remarks against the majority, while reviling even basic criticisms of trends in minority populations, let alone the common-sense use of profiling in criminal investigations.
So while it is wrong to keep minorities, for instance, out of colleges due to their race, it is perfectly acceptable to keep qualified whites out in order to place less qualified minorities in their place. In liberal ideology, two wrongs certainly CAN make a right.
Nowhere is this thin-skinned, holier-than-thou, feigned or real horror at 'blasphemous' remarks more obvious than when talking about minorities, esp. black Americans, and especially the first black president.
Sites like bushorchimp.com raise nary an eyebrow (much less the pics of oral sex being performed on Bush by Lieberman), but just try to portray Obama as a monkey.
Now, some will argue that comparing blacks to monkeys hearkens back to the days of harsh racism, and they would be correct. But does that mean that we can NEVER compare Obama to a monkey or a ghetto thug when the analogy is appropriate, or just satirical and biting?
Does that mean that any resemblance between the actions of Obama and the ills of the black community, be they out of wedlock childbirth, high incarceration, crack addiction, thuggery, pot use, or obsession with bling and 40oz beers, is racist? Are comparisons to Darth Vader racist too, since Vader was 'black'?!?
The real issue is that we have so overcomensated for the oppression of minorities in the past, that now such criticisms or humor are the equivalent of blasphemy speech. Why can we no longer offend others with humor, ridicule, or comparisons to animals? We may find such things uncivil and rude, but should rudeness be illegal? And one-sided rudeness?
But lets get even 'darker,' if I may.
