    D'oh, I'm a racist, yup yup yup


    Obviously the shirt is meant to be sarcastic. Think any of them get that though?

    55 Replies into it, not a single person seems to realize that. Some take it on a tanget to prove that owning guns makes you a racist.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    And I call shenanigans over the use of Fox News. I believe Fox News has enough money to have an official sign made and displayed.

    Of course, they don't get it.

    They haven't realized yet that their constant cries of "racism" directed at conservatives is nothing BUT a joke. From their claims of "code words" to claims that criticizing Obama's policies and calling him the "food stamp president" is "racist", to redefining what the word means in order to claim all conservatives are "RACIST" they have made the word meaningless.

    Some day they may wake up and see how they have made a mockery of the concept of the very real reality of TRUE racism, but I don't think it will be anytime soon.

    Orwell once wrote that the bastardization of language had turned specific terms into meaningless generalities. He cited fascism, which used to refer to a specific set of policies and ideas, but which had come to mean "something bad" in a vague sort of way. Today, racist has been similarly debased, and now means just someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
