Hate speech from MSNBC: ‘Hateful Language’ Will ‘Kill’ the ‘Crazy Crackers on the Right’‏

Democratic strategist and MSNBC political analyst Karen Finney said Tuesday that the “hateful language” of the “crazy crackers on the right” will pose a huge thorn in the side of Republicans when it comes to courting Latino voters.  She weighed in on an MSNBC panel:

"As in ’05 and ’06, the death knell for Republicans is the tone of this conversation. We had evangelical Latinos wanting to meet with Howard Dean at the DNC because — I’m just saying, that’s a shift! Point being, we saw in droves the Latino community moving over to the Democratic Party, largely because of the tone. And you even had Republicans [who were] Latino just ​disgusted​ with the tone.

So these guys have to be very, very careful. And the other thing these guys know is, those crazy crackers on the right, if they start with their very hateful language, that it’s going to kill them in the same way that they learned at their little retreat that let’s not talk about rape."

No one on the panel pointed out the irony of lamenting the “hateful language” of Republicans right before calling them “crazy crackers.”

As a perjorative 'cracker' doesn't seem to carry the same weight as 'nigger' or 'spic'. The latter two are pretty much universally considered offensive.

Cracker, on the other hand is apparently held by some as acceptable, at least in some instances.

It is the speaker's intention that determines its level of offence. In this instance it was obviously intended to be a derogitory, offensive term.

But, as usual, since the speaker is a liberal on a liberal news show, there will be no censure from the left.

All is well. Hate speech from the left is acceptable.

You don't understand the way things work. It is NEVER the speaker's intention that determines anything. The only thing that matters is how the listener (or reader) reacts.

In response to "Cracker" being an acceptable pejorative...
(do check the correct spelling - one implies a known lie, while the other implies an epithet)
The "N-Word" seems to be quite acceptable, among the ethnic group it represents, yet unacceptable to be used by others...
I therefore propose that only persons of European descent be allowed to use the word "Cracker".
BTW..."Spic" denotes your East coast roots...(it generally refers to Puerto Ricans & Cubans); here in the West, we have "Beaners".
