do we really want to legitimize this?

Wow, what do you say to this?

Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

I have to wonder what hunting moose and carrying guns has to do with the fate of Jews and black people. It’s quite a rich irony that it’s always whites who get accused of racism and bigotry, yet other races seem to get a pass on that even though theirs is often much more potent, as we see here. Perhaps this example doesn’t mean that much, considering that such rhetoric comes from an impeached federal judge, but taken in tandem with the support of people like Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers — not to mention those asshats who warn of things like race and class wars if Obama loses, or even the fact of Obama’s being a product of the thoroughly corrupt Chicago political machine — it more or less demolishes the “post-racial candidate of change” shibboleth Obama and his worshippers like to peddle. Do we really want to legitimize the statements like the one Alcee Hastings made — and the mindset embodied in such statements — by electing Barack Obama president? I sure as hell hope not.
