Skip to comments.Our Ever-Shrinking Lexicon (There seems to be so many code words for "racism" nowadays...)
Posted on 08/31/2012 6:49:16 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Conservatives cannot talk about "food stamps" because it's code for some evil racist message. In a refreshing, much-needed moment, Newt Gingrich smacked that one down quite nicely.
Conservatives cannot talk about "Chicago" because that's also racist.
Conservatives must not say the word "angry" when referring to the president, because, well, by now we all know where this leads....racism!
Conservatives cannot talk about the president and "golf." Because, apparently, when you think about Obama and golf you think about Tiger Woods and sordid sex and it's all very demeaning and, well, you know the rest. Who would have guessed?
There are many more "code" words, apparently. And no doubt in the weeks ahead, the left will continue to try to "educate" the public about them. ("Educate" being code for lie, distort, mangle, and mislead.)
In fact, the State Department has put our tax dollars to good use by coming up with a guide to offensive words and phrases.
I'm the last person who wants to inadvertently offend an innocent person. And should I use a phrase that has historical meaning that I am unaware of that another person finds hurtful, then by all means, I hope they'll speak up. I don't need my government deciding what's appropriate or inappropriate for me to say.

Geeeesh, I can’t wait for Romney to be sworn in. Then all of the pc BS can end.
But wouldn’t Romney’s swearing in be considered racist because he’s replacing a black, er, half-black guy in the White House? Man, when does all of this drek end?
Don’t worry. It’s still OK to say: “Barack Obama is the bestest president ever.”
Racism is a dead word, just like how George Orwell said Fascism was.
It’s been abused and misused to the point that any coherent definition has been stripped away.
If Racism really was as big as an issue as they like to make it out to be, then that wouldn’t be possible.
Targeting the demons of yesteryear is always much easier than addressing real problems though, and liberals don’t want to over-exert themselves.
That’s so gay..............
It’s not even just words.
According to Olbermand and Fineman if you drive a pick-up truck you are sending secret coded messages of racism.
I guess the only tactic is to do what many speakers at the convention did; don’t mention Obama by name only by his title or “he”. To refer to Obama’s human side is to run the risk of being called a racist for drawing attention his race. You can only avoid racist code words by trivializing the president as a human being.
“According to Olbermand and Fineman if you drive a pick-up truck you are sending secret coded messages of racism.”
Paging Fred or Lamont Sanford.
List of racist code words...
Why can't they just say what they want to say? "Just shut up"
This may catch flak from the Moderators, and I had to think long and hard before I posted it, but I’ve got to say it.
You can’t use:
See, these words are all racist, not because they denigrate black people for the stereotype of not exhibiting these traits. It’s because down on the democrat plantation, they don’t want black people to exhibit any of them. They might start to think and act independently, and then they would “stir up trouble.” It’s common to talk about the democrats of today as “not being your daddy’s democrat party.” I disagree. The democrat party is still as racist as it ever was. They still want African-Americans oppressed and beholden to their slave masters. They treat Alan West or Herman Cain no different than they treated a runaway slave. The only difference from the KKK of the 1930’s is that today, they co-opted some black “field bosses” like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to bark out their orders to the field hands, and the white masters don’t wear white hoods any more. The African-Americans on the democrat plantation don’t have the job of picking cotton any more, their only job is to vote, and vote democrat to keep Massa in power. For all intents and purposes, democrat oppression of African-Americans has changed only in form, but not in substance.
Calling conservatives “racist” for using any of the above terms is pure projection; it’s what the left does best.
> But wouldnt Romneys swearing in be considered racist because hes replacing a black, er, half-black guy in the White House? Man, when does all of this drek end?
Obama isn’t black or white he’s a commie and I have no problem with laying insults on commies.
Now that there’s a shortage of real racism, the race industry has to trump some up or they’ll be out of jobs. Of course they could address the true racism currently happening-all the whites being attacked by black mobs, the rapes upon elderly white women and Latino children, but that wouldn’t suit the agenda of their marxist handler.
It is ironic that the loudest cries of “racism” come from those who are the strongest supporters of racial preferences. Perhaps we need to differentiate between Positive Racists, Balanced Racists and Negative Racists. Oh course, if we do that then we will absolutely have to break these down into subcategories designating WHICH race(s) is the subject (object?) of the racism.
PR(N), NR(W), BR(N,W,O,H,M,P,A,H) [Hey the LGBTQRZ crowd has nothing on us!]
Finally, we have the category of Human Racist, as in:
“The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don’t like anybody very much!”
Do you remember the one about ‘Monday’ is racist? Now this liberal idiocy extends to days of the week. Yikes! Liberals are going creepy...
Orwell's 1984 dealt nicely with this subject. Words were destroyed that allowed resistance. Same tactics our liberal elites use - trying to destroy our ability to think in terms outside their control.
Here's the truth. Chicago - especially the south side - where a majority of blacks live - is corrupt and violent. It's a problem in other cities too.
The Presidency is to become a black sinecure.
Using math and common sense re saying no to rat deficit spending to buy votes from minorities and illegals or terrible green tyranny is evil and racist.
Being a practicing Christian or Jew in today’s America, is a worse evil as well as being racist.
Telling the truth is now evil racism!
Last but not least, believing in personal responsibility is both evil, radical and racist.
