Rush Limbaugh has been talking about the Republican National Committee's uncertainty over how to take a fight for the presidency to Barack Hussein Obama's doorstep without being labeled racists.
For the record, Barack Hussein Obama, running for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States, was born of a white mother and dark-skinned father, and he has dark skin, although some have said he actually is a dark-skinned Asian or Arabian man, not a dark-skinned African man. Either way I could not care less, and neither do most Americans who reside outside a 25-mile radius of Washington, D.C.
Is there something inside the DC beltway that deteriorates the brain cells if you stay there too long?
OK, Republican National Committee, with a bow from the waist to Jeff Foxworthy:
If you won't fight as hard and as effectively as necessary to win the presidency using every weapon at your disposal, because your opponent is black - you might be a racist.
If you think you have to have a separate game plan for a black liberal as opposed to every other liberal - you might be a racist.
If you are so afraid of losing voters because Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will criticize you for criticizing your opponent's race, even if you don't - you might be a racist and you probably should take a different job.
Here is a basic plan on how to fight Barack Hussein Obama without being a racist.
Take the fight to him on each and every front, use all of his liberal stances on every issue against him JUST LIKE YOU WOULD AGAINST ANYONE ELSE AND DON'T USE THE WORD BLACK - oh, or NEGRO either.
If this guy can't stand out on the national political stage and take the gloves off without curling up in the fetal position and sucking his thumb if he thinks someone notices that he happens to be a black liberal Democrat, then he has no right to expect votes from the likes of Joe Frazier, George Foreman or Muhammad Ali.
He has no right to expect a vote from Ray Charles or Little Richard or Chubby Checker or Fats Domino. He has no right to expect support from Snoop or Fifty Cent or any other rapper or any other politician, or businessman or sports figure or housewife or factory worker or anyone else of any profession or background, who also is black, period.
There are no kid gloves in politics. There is no "special" category. Can you imagine how an Obama presidency would be regarded if he won because the rest of America was afraid to debate him straight up due to his color?
I can see it in the history books now. The presidency with an asterisk. The "Affirmative Action Presidency." Obama is better than that, black America is better than that, and if there is to be a true race with a true winner, then there should be no special rules, real or implied.
Jackie Robinson went through hell breaking the color barrier in professional sports, but he hung in there and played like a champ, and that is why he succeeded. Ali took years of criticism, much of it racially inspired, and he even lost his heavyweight boxing title at the height of his career, but he hung in there.
Black musicians used to have to stay in different hotels than the ones where they played. Rosa Parks made an issue that she could ride any damn place on the bus she wanted.
And now we finally have a black man running for president of the United States and we are all worried about what someone might say about us if we are too harsh or too critical?
Go ask Kenny Norton if Ali gave him a pass. Ask Ali if George Foreman gave him a pass.
Ask Serena Williams if her sister gives her a pass.
Good grief. This is ridiculous. Only a person who is out of touch with the reality of the wider United States of America would even worry about this.
If Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton tries to throw the race card into this race (pun intended) the backlash will be overwhelming! Americans of all races and colors are sick to death of this garbage.
America is the land of opportunity for everyone who is willing to do the work and put in the effort. You get nothing handed to you, unless you are willing to live at a government established subsistence level.
If you want the brass ring you have to go for it full tilt and prove that you are capable, regardless of the obstacles. Race is one of the easiest obstacles to overcome these days, unless you let it defeat you. Using race to say you can't criticize the stands and positions of a black man who wants to be elected to the highest office in the entire world is racist.
It also is chickens**t! If Barack Hussein Obama doesn't have the guts or the toughness to fight for this job regardless of what is thrown at him, he doesn't deserve the job.
Does anyone remember George Bush or even John Kerry getting a pass? I don't.
Wake up and smell the coffee RNC. Get out there and get swinging. If you don't say a racial word, and someone falsely accuses you of using race as a weapon, kick the crap out of them! That's how you get votes.
And if Barack stumbles, make damn sure someone helps speed his fall. Anything less is racist.
