    Saturday Night Card Game (The “Negrophobia” card is played)

    Saturday Night Card Game (The “Negrophobia” card is played)

    This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

    I know, I know, you’ve heard it all before.  Broken dreams and shattered hopes that the use of the race card for political gain would not get any worse.  But I told you it would.

    This may be the night, however, when it has peaked, because it can’t possibly get any worse than this post by “Dennis G.” at the popular left-wing Balloon Juice blog (via Crawdad Hole), The Modern Negrophobists reaction to the President’s speech…

    Balloon Juice, you may recall, was one of the first entrants into the Saturday Night Card Game, making an appearance on November 14, 2009.

    “Dennis G.” uses a mid-19th Century cartoon of a drowning white man refusing to be saved by a black man, followed by this assertion about anticipated reaction from right-wingers and the professional left to Obama’s jobs speech:

    This cartoon from 1862 could run in the papers tomorrow as an example of the typical Republican/Wingnut reaction to President Obama’s speech (it would also cover the reaction of more than a few firebaggers as well). This has been the reaction to everything President Obama has done so far, so I see no reason why it would stop tonight.

    Wow.  Right-wingers and firebaggers — who Dennis G. presumes all to be white  — refuse to be saved by Barack Obama because Obama is black.

    And the proof?  Well, all us wingnuts and the firebaggers refer to Obama as a “lawn jockey.”

    Oh wait, my mistake, that was a Balloon Juice blogger referring to Juan Williams as a lawn jockey.

    I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when the rise of the race card began to slow and our nation began to heal.  Because it couldn’t possibly get any worse.

    “Because it couldn’t possibly get any worse.”

    With respect, yes it could. Easily. General execution formations already do dry runs (“flash mobs”) with impunity. “Flash” wet runs with impunity are estimable phenomena. And there is general arrest and termination, as in “take these son of bitches out.” Contemporary Cairo at the Israeli Embassy is monitory.

    The National Socialists of 1930s Germany rested their idolatrous, positivistic religion of nature on the racism of Nordic superiority. The National Socialists of 2000s United States rest their idolatrous, positivistic religion of nature on the racism of Black American superiority. In both iterations of the National Socialist frame of reference (a new religion of naturalism based on a single racial superiority), external preemption is required to collapse it because internal preemption is incapable.

    Curious that this by Angelo Codevilla has not gained wide attention. It identifies the source of the vexation:

    And it seconds Laurie Mylroie’s *Bush vs. the Beltway* with respect to that source.

    “The White House Insider” asserts that race is the central focus of the 2012 reelection campaign of the cat in the White House:

    As every management defense lawyer knows, sometimes claims of “racism”, “sexism” and etc. are the responses to charges of incompetence. In this case, it’s incompetence. Here’s a nice summary of Obama’s presidency: http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/being-obama_591426.html

    Negrophobia? That’s like sex with dead people right?

    I hope these lefties keep using the race card and continue with name calling instead offering any factual responses defending Obama and his rhetoric.(I was going to say policies instead of rhetoric but then I remembered there has been nothing but rhetoric offered since Obamacare}
    So far they are losing 55 to 60% of the Independent vote and I bet they can get it up to 70-75% if they really try.
