Everyone's racist now

Until recent years, I thought a “racist” was someone who believed that one race of people was genetically superior to other races. I also knew that far too many people confuse racism with bigotry. But now I know better.


According to liberal politicians and pundits, I’ve been all wrong.

I know that of the steps needed to implement socialism or communism in a society, none is more important than taking control of people’s health.

That is why I oppose the so-called Affordable Care Act, or as the president calls it, Obamacare. But time and time again, we’ve been told if you oppose Obamacare, you’re a racist. Most recently, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said it’s “because they don’t like the president. Maybe he’s of the wrong color, something of that sort.”

I believe the Second Amendment is a good thing, as it allows people to protect themselves. But some British and Australian psychologists determined I have these beliefs because I’m a racist.

I believe schools set up by Christian organizations are a good thing, but President Obama said “if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs – if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division.”

I oppose the president’s call to increase the minimum wage. While it would initially be helpful to some people, the net effect would be a loss of entry level jobs and it would raise living costs, rendering those raises ineffective. But Ed Schultz of MSNBC recently said “I think not raising the minimum wage is a racist policy.”

There are tons of examples and almost daily someone is saying that I’m a racist because of my American beliefs; because I oppose unnecessary government intrusion into my private life; because I believe in the tenet of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Apparently, by these new definitions, being a racist is something we can be proud of. So, whether you’re black, white, red or yellow, if you’re a racist too – hold your head up!
