The Left's Highest Card Is the Joker

The Left’s increasing desperation is showing, and it’s ugly.

It was one thing when attacks on criticsof Obama’s health-care agenda focused on prominent individuals like Sarah Palin. Only people who strongly support Palin were bothered by the way she was ridiculed and slandered.

Now this is personal.

This isn’t about Rep. Joe Wilson or Sarah Palin. It’s about you. It’s not about Glenn Beck, or Rush Limbaugh, or even the KKK, or the Nazi Party.

It’s about you.

The president, and his pledged mouthpieces, have fanned out across the media to condemn you, any and all of you who dare disagree with his health-care agenda, as hate-filled racists.

Those cries of "racism" and aren't aimed at somebody else this time. Somebody out there who might be controversial, or “fringe” or goes too far. Somebody on TV you don't really know.

Now they're saying those things about you.

If you oppose Obama and/or his health-care plan, you are a racist; there is no other conceivable explanation for your opposition.

It’s quite simple really, as they explain it.

You only question Obama and the Democrat plan because you’re wallowing in the “inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.” (Jimmy Carter).

It’s because you are one of the people who “just can’t believe a black man is president and will never accept it.” (Maureen Dowd).

Your opinion that the president has made false statements about his plan makes you one of those “people with white hoods running through the countryside again.” (Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson)

It’s because you’re part of “element in this country that doesn’t want to accept him as the president,” and you’re frustrated because “Nobody can use the N-word in public anymore.”(Mitch Albom)

The Left went all in when they threw this the race card. There's only one way this can work for them, that's only if they can convince:

all the Americans who don’t find Obama a truth-telling man;

and all the Americans who don’t believe the health-care package Obama & Co. have tried to railroad through Congress since July is the best thing for all of us;

and all the American independents who simply want a full discussion of the details and consequences of a radical re-fashioning of our health-care system before we burn every health-care bridge in the country--

—they have to convince all of these Americans, all of us, that the only reason we think that and feel that and say that is because we hate black people, and for no other reason.

It's not enough for them to convince each other. It doesn't matter that Clyburn and Carter and Olbermann and Albom are convinced.

They have to convince us.

Would you bet on that?

They don't have to convince all of us. They have taken over and are doing their best to keep the rest of us silent.
