Belle Waring brings to our attention this hand crafted, bronze dipped piece of nonsense from Lisa Schffrin, who obviously has access to a higher grade of cannabis than you or I could ever possibly afford:
Obama and I are roughly the same age. I grew up in liberal circles in New York City — a place to which people who wished to rebel against their upbringings had gravitated for generations. And yet, all of my mixed race, black/white classmates throughout my youth, some of whom I am still in contact with, were the product of very culturally specific unions. They were always the offspring of a white mother, (in my circles, she was usually Jewish, but elsewhere not necessarily) and usually a highly educated black father. And how had these two come together at a time when it was neither natural nor easy for such relationships to flourish? Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics. (During the Clinton Administration we were all introduced to then U. of Pennsylvania Professor Lani Guinier — also a half black/half Jewish, red diaper baby.)
[…] It was, of course, an explicit tactic of the Communist party to stir up discontent among American blacks, with an eye toward using them as the leading edge of the revolution. To be sure, there was much to be discontented about, for black Americans, prior to the civil-rights revolution. To their credit, of course, most black Americans didn’t buy the commie line — and showed more faith in the possibilities of democratic change than in radical politics, and the results on display in Moscow.
As Belle put it:
The truly beautiful thing about this is that it incoherently wavers between two poles of repulsive slander: is it Communist Negroes having sex with our white women? Or are Communist Jewesses subverting black Americans who, patriotic though modestly ill-treated, would have been able to resist had the party not offered them the tempting fruits of miscegenation?
Combined with the various other slanders wafting off the Right Hemisphere of Blogistan, Obama must be a Super Soldier crafted entirely from the best parts of Republican Bogeymen. Let me check my score card to make sure I’ve got the spread covered here. So far, Barak Obama is a:
- Secret Muslim
- Race traitor
- Post-Racial poster boy
- Articulate savage
- Inner city hoodlum
- Ivy League elitist
- class warrior
- Black Panther posing as the Second coming of Ronald Reagan
Where do I go to collect my gun rack with built in Confederate Flag Pole? And when does the man have time to take a nap, is what I want to know.
The Corner piece by Schiffrin isn’t very long and I had a hard time paring it down to just the excerpt above.The whole thing is worth reading if only because you will not see such poetically concise crazy in one place ever again. Maybe if she left out a few definite articles tor took to referring to Obama as His Holiness, The Grand Mufti of Chocolate Fudge. But no, that would ruin the verisimilitude. This is truly the pinnacle of Right Wing Crazy Talk and he hasn’t even wrappe dup the nomination yet! Once he does, these people are going to develop full blown Confederate Tourettes Syndrome.
Take note, Bill O’Reilly, you ain’t got nothing on Lisa Schiffrin!
