Ed Asner’s explanation for Hollywood’s silence regarding Obama attacking Syria epitomizes the absurdity and danger of political correctness and identity politics. Ironically, Hollywood progressives find themselves slaves of their own emotion driven brain-dead loon-icy. Hollywood along with Democrats and the mainstream media have declared all opposition or criticism of Obama racist. ‘
“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” said Asner.
Excuse me — they don’t want to “feel”? Dear Lord, while we adults are discussing national security, Hollywood progressives are still obsessed with their feelings and protecting the first liberal black president.
Hollywood and the mainstream media’s supersensitivity to racism and sexism only applies when it involves supproting liberal Democrats. Thus, a Hillary Clinton presidency would, in essence, be the third Obama term; furthering his “fundamental transformation” of America.
Anyone opposing or criticizing the first “woman” president will be politically shackled and humiliated in the public square for sexism. Suckered again by allowing their political enemies to set the rules of engagement, wimpy weak-kneed Republicans will surrender and give Hillary everything she wants. They always do.
In glaring contradiction of their well-crafted image as defenders of blacks and women, Democrats have a history of take-no-prisoner assaults on black conservatives. Democrats seek not merely to stop them, but their total destruction, insuring that their uppity black derrieres never dare challenge the liberal’s agenda again.
The term “high tech lynching” was birthed out of the over-the-top vitriolic media circus created by Democrat and liberal media efforts to block black conservative Clarence Thomas from becoming a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
A liberal radio host called the first black Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice an Aunt Jemima, claiming that blacks only have subservient roles in the Bush Administration. Imagine a conservative radio host calling a black Democrat politician an Aunt Jemima. Their career would be over.
With class and dignity Dr Rice endured the attacks of the racist white liberal cartoonists. Pat Oliphant and Jeff Danziger featured Rice with exaggerated big lips speaking in a rural southern dialect.
In his Doonesbury comic strip, Garry Trudeau called Rice “Brown Sugar”.
Ted Rall in his comic suggested that Rice was Bush’s “house nigga” in need of “racial re-education.”
Was there push back from the mainstream media over the blatantly racist cartoons? Heck no. As a matter of fact, Universal Press Syndicate and the New York Times distribute these racist cartoonists.
