Today Maureen Dowd joined the ranks of the Raaaaacism Industrial Complex with a stunning piece of manufactured racism in her recent column.
Check this out:
The normally nonchalant Barack Obama looked nonplussed, as Nancy Pelosi glowered behind.
Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t.
But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!
I find it pretty damn amazing that a white limousine liberal like Dowd, who resides in a white liberal enclave where the majority of black residents tend to be live in help, is capable of hearing a racist slur where no one else did. These charges of manufactured racism being put forth by over zealous Obama defenders, is rapidly approaching a point where if someone finds Obama’s choice of necktie lacking, they could be construed as a fashionista racist.
Memo to Dowd: There is enough real racism in the world as it is; you are not helping anyone by making shit up!
