MSNBC: References To Golf, Chicago Are Racist

From NewsBusters:

Can’t Make This Up: Now Joking About Obama’s Love for Golf is ‘Racist’ to MSNBC

By Ken Shepherd | Wed August 29, 2012

This afternoon, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell got his hands on excerpts of the remarks that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was preparing to give this evening…. Taking to the air on Martin Bashir’s eponymous program, O’Donnell laid out his case that McConnell’s crack that the president "has been working hard to earn a spot on the PGA tour."

That’s just plain racist, even if by two or three degrees of separation, O’Donnell explained. The long and short of it: When you think Obama at the PGA, you think of Tiger Woods, and when you think of Tiger Woods, you think about his cheating on his wife…

Who thinks like this? — Check that. What sane person thinks like this?

At any rate, O’Donnell insisted, McConnell and his senior speechwriters were reaching for a "racial double entendre" that conveys a dog-whistle message to the audience…

Although initially skeptical, Bashir was ultimately convinced. "Wow, things are getting lower and lower by the day," he lamented…

But wait, MSNBC has uncovered yet another racial code word, also via NewsBusters:

Chris Matthews and MSNBC Now Claim the Word ‘Chicago’ Is Racist

By Rusty Weiss | Thurs August 30, 2012

Chris Matthews was on Hardball tonight covering the Republican National Convention with guests Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and John Hielemann of New York Magazine…

Robinson sets the racial tone by saying:

"It’s all part of this Barack Obama as ‘other’ sort of blanket campaign that has been waged by the Republican Party for some time now. It may be gaining some traction now, though I wonder why now as opposed to a bit closer to election."

Matthews then.. said this:

"Yea, well let me ask you about that gentleman. What about now, is this constant barrage of assaults, saying the guy is basically playing an old game of demagoguery politics, where you take the money from the worker bees and give it to the poor people to buy votes. That’s basically what they’re charging him with. Old big-style, big-city machine of 50 years ago."

[Matthews] added, "They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That’s another thing that sends that message – this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs."

Which actually comports with some reports on Obama’s strategy. That is, the reports that say he has declared war on the suburbs.

Hielemann helpfully interpreted Matthews statement:

"There’s a lot of black people in Chicago."

In the old days we used to have a term for people who obsessed over race. We used to call them ‘racists.’

Speaking of which, lest we forget, this is the same Chris Matthews who amazed himself when he almost forgot for an entire that Obama was black, when he gave his State Of The Union Address, back in January 2010.

    It is almost unbelievable how frightened these folks are of competent people.

  2. Mae says:

    Rush just said that Matthews could be having a true breakdown. He certainly does not seem normal. But, then, how can you tell with lefties.

    It’s MSNBC’s confession they are so racist that golf ball makes them think of cheating Black men has harmed me greatly.

    MSNBC has ruined my memories of golf forever. I can never think of golf the same again. I will think MSNBC are the most racist news org in the country and believe they are trying to make up for past racism? I do not understand their patronizing and patting themselves on the back.

    Talk is cheap.

    MSNBC hires few Black and minority reporters and workers. Only, the pasty yellowed skin and hair of
    Matthews shines so bright.

    At least that is how Obama described white blonds in his book. And Obama believed that blonds were smarter than others. They had to be professors or doctors. What ignorance Obama grew up in.

    Matthews is coming unhinged. His utopian dreams of a benevolent dictator are dying on the vine and he is unable to figure out who to hinge his hopes on anymore. Desperation, extreme lying, yelling, moping, depression…all signs of absolute defeat. He probably needs help but in the socialist world, he’d sooner stand in front of an oncoming train. All-or-nothing with people like him.

    He is also dealing with the fact that his chosen god isn’t much of one at all…that he’s a mere mortal. In fact not much of one at that. He lies, he steals, he cheats and he…well…you get the idea. For four years Matthews has run cover for this guy and like the absolutely faithful to any despot, when the regime is crumbling and it looks like all is lost, they panic and make very poor decisions and often become irrational. It’s not too different from a spoiled child realizing that they are actually going to get punished this time. None of the old tricks will work.

    Maybe Chrissy will succumb to reality and perhaps begin a long road to recovery with therapy, some anti-depressants and intense life-coaching. Or….not.

      Per your description of Matthews, it just came to me that he is from the same kiln as the prior Iraqi Minister of Information, Baghdad Bob.

    Remember Bush Derangement Syndrome? Now we’re looking at Republican Derangement Syndrome. It’s mass hysteria. Their ability to project their own racism and dark thoughts onto conservatives is epic.
    When we win the mental fireworks will be spectacular!

    • Mithrandir says:

      There was an article in 2004 after Bush won re-election, of liberals who went into therapy somewhere in Florida. I can’t find the article anymore, but that is how unhinged they were at the time. Obama won and I didn’t miss a wink of sleep, these people lose their minds!

      Republicans are more logical, Democrats are pure emotion…..it hits them harder.

      Look at them now, then imagine how even nuttier they will be when their golden calf is struck down this November. —I think Chris “Tingles” Matthews will just start doing 4 hour non-stop rants like Hugo Chavez, from now on.

    Food stamps: “Black people!”

    Welfare: “Black people!”

    Golf: Cheating black people!”

    Chicago: “Black people!”

    Sidewalk Chalk: “Chalk….chalk is also white, and you use white chalk on a blackboard…so, it obviously code for white on black oppression!”

    As if the liberals didn’t INVENT code words, subterfuge, double-meanings, double entendre. It’s generally referred to as political correctness. While they sneer, and say “FoxNews!” there is a whole undercurrent of negativity they want you to feel. “Bain Capital!” “Haliburton!” “Southerners!” “Red-Staters!” “Pale-Males!” “Koch brothers!”

      Blackboards were made from slate in the earth.
      Chalk was made for blackboards to wipe off.
      They didn’t have sidewalks out in the country. Still don’t have side-walks living out in the country. They have erasable whiteboards.
      The gang and illegal impoverished schools have computers for each student, while the other schools can’t afford books.

    They were wearing shirts made from cotton. Cotton was picked by slaves in the South. Republicans want to bring back slavery.
    Ryan mentioned his mom. Mom’s give birth. This was a desperate birther comment.
    “America” is a seven letter word. I have seven pairs of shoes in my closet. Coming of the closet refers to gay people. Thus Republicans want to put gay people in concentration camps every time they SAY AMERICA!!!!

    I am now adding “Skilled in journalism” to my resume!
    If I had a twitter account this could be a great #MathewsCrazy series!

    Lifted from American Thinker

    “Angry obama played golf while Chicago thugs abused foods stamps.”

    That’s all of George Carlin’s famous ten words.

    Ah the Moonbat denizens of Moonbatistan or Asshatistonia.

  10. bousquem25 says:

    Wow if the moonbats really believing this is true, I’ve got some great real estate to sell the next star system over along with some great bridges to sell to them; sadly cash only not loans please.

  11. Enthalpy says:

    What stupidity! O’Donnell’s only claim to fame was his marriage to Kathryn Harrold. These people are pitiful.
