Hard-head, Hardball host, Chris Matthews can’t help himself. He along with the usual race-baiting libs like David Gregory of “Meet the Press” (and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Jimmy Carter and Sheila Jackson and Charlie Rangel and Michael Moore and the NAACP, Joy Behar, Jeremiah Wright, and John Conyers, etc., etc., there’s no shortage (not to mention the Hispanic race-baiters over immigration), just have to inject racism into politics at every opportunity.
But they are the very racists!
Matthews and Gregory contend that the mere mention of food stamps (code for racism), by Newt Gingrich in a speech recently points unfairly to the black population. But wait, that’s an outright presupposition from them that somehow food stamps usage is equated with African-Americans, otherwise, why would that be racist?
Gingrich, who recently announced his presidential candidacy is well on the road to burying himself, by himself needing no help from Chris ‘like a thrill running up my leg’ Mathew’s. But it still galls me to keep hearing the race thing over and over again. It’s almost always a deflection or diversion from the truth. Like the NAACP calling Tea Party members racists juxtaposed to the New Black Panther Party thugs celebrating cop-killers (along with the American Federation of Teachers, I might add). Gimme shelter for God sakes.
Back to Newt’s point in calling Obama the Food Stamp President, his point was that the uber-spending coupled with his business and job-killing policies from a non-existent energy plan to a massively expanded federal government with the myriad of rules, regs, fees and paperwork, continues to cost jobs and has necessitated a huge increase in food stamps usage in all states across the country, with 1 in 7 nationally on food stamp assistance.
According to KGMB News in Honolulu, Hawaii’s food stamp usage has increased over last year with nearly 12% of our population on food stamps. Is this racist? I don’t think so considering that African Americans make up only about 1.8% of Hawaii’s population.
Most Americans vote for a person’s policies, not because of the color of their skin. Those who voted for Obama out of ‘white guilt’ in 2008 for fear of being tagged racist will surely vote against Obama in 2012 for fear of be called idiots -based solely on his policies.
