Olby back on his "racist" shtick

When you've really got nothing to say but lots of time to say it in, this is what you get. Olberman saying that criticism of Obama is racist. Partial transcript from "Countdown":
“…But our winners, these guys, assessing not the speech but the president himself. Eric Erickson, “cocky”; John Stossel said he hoped the president would admit he was, quote, arrogant. Jay Nordlinger, “looks arrogant whether he is arrogant or not”; Mark Thiessen, “defensive, arrogant”; John Hood, “flippant” and “arrogant.” Glenn Beck, “like a punk.”

Here’s a little secret: gathering sadly from witnessing it my whole life even from some in my own family, when racist white guys get together and they don’t want to be caught using any of the popular epithets that are in use every day in this country about black people, there’s a chance one of them or worse still a white guy who doesn’t get it, might wander in and hear the conversation. When there’s a risk even in saying uppity or forgetting his place, the racist white guys revert to euphemisms and code words and among the code word that they think they’re getting away with are “”cocky, flippant, punk, and especially arrogant.”

But calling GWB "arrogant" was fine, of course. The Left made that claim all the time. See also here

By now, i think most rational adults understand just what Olberman is, and isn't. And to prove the point, just check his ratings numbers against those of the people he maligns on a regular basis. He is a pathetic, but oh so typical example of what msnbc has to offer.

He isn't a journalist.
He isn't very intelligent.
He isn't funny.

He is a radical Marxist.
He is, as are all Leftist, filled with hate.

Olberman has to come up with something since his Nigro in the white house isn't doing too good. We can blame it on the white folks.

A couple weeks ago he maligned Scott Brown as a racist because he drove a pickup truck. I wonder if all black people who drive them are racist too. Or does he think they don't drive pickups?

In Obly's world, lefty blacks can't be racist. But conservative blacks are Uncle Toms.

Try these code words, Olby:

Like the typical Leftist, Keith Overbite (Countdown to No Ratings) seems to think that because he has to try to hide what he is saying behind code words and euphemisms, that everybody else operates the same way. No, Keith. When Eric Erickson called Obama "cocky", it is because he believed Obama acted cocky. When others described his conduct as arrogant, it is because he acted arrogantly. Words mean things, whether you believe it or not, and we have better uses of our time than to try to keep a bunch of code words straight and translate code to plain English, when we can just speak plain English to communicate ideas and information in the first place.
