ACORN: "It's RAAAAAAACISM"

Yup. It's all racism.

The larger pattern of Fox's irresponsible actions here is the real news. From Glenn Beck calling President Obama a racist, to Fox inciting racism and threats of violence with the Teaparties, to Fox unleashing a hit job on ACORN the day after an inspiring Presidential healthcare speech before Congress, Fox has long since abandoned any journalistic pretense. It is clear and not coincidence that FOX continues to attack and divide our nation along racial lines. We believe our country is beyond this type of attack and call on all Americans to demand that FOX stop its racist coverage. --Margaret Williams, Board Member, Maryland ACORN

SSDD, we note Kevin Fischer's post on a high-school discussion of ObamaCare:

...Another student, who happens to be black, immediately objected to that opinion. He pulled out the quick and easy debate card, calling his fellow student a racist. “White folks,” he asserted simply can’t stand having a black man as president...

It's all race, of course. At least the high-school kid has the excuse that he's just a high-school kid.

The only racism is on the part of the student making the unsubstantiated attack.

The problem with Obama has nothing to do with his race. It's his competence.

If, as this idiot claims, white America can't stand having a black president, Obama would have never won the Iowa primary. Maybe this "student" needs to do more studying.

The reason Obama is catching so much heat now is that average folks are beginning to get frustrated. They never thought there could be a bigger boob than Dubya and are frustrated that they were wrong.

Obama never would have won the election, RAG, if we were so racist.

But anyone with a brain predicted this. Protest and complain against Dubya, and it's "patriotic." Question Obama and you're just this side of pulling out a noose. Constantly being called racist, a Nazi, terrorist, backward, etc. gets a little old after a while. People tend to not take kindly to such pejoratives.

1. IMHO (& personal experience) it is the black student who is doing the judging based on the color of a person's skin.

2. ACORN knows it is in trouble with the videos that have recently come out & their lose (for now, I suspect they will be back) of helping the Censu Bureau. & that is why it is lashing out.

They don't like Fox's message that uncovers the truth, so ACORN is attacking the messenger.

Andrew Breitbart must be wondering why he can't get any respect.

He broke the story, not Fox

How come Glenn Beck is always talking about being enslaved?
