No Stone Left Unturned

It is good to know that no stone will be left unturned in the quest to exorcise racist language from public discourse, especially with super word codebreakers like Zennie62 on the job. He tells us that Erick Erickson, writing at RedState has “used a word that’s has a totally racist connection to describe President Obama’s delivery: ‘cocky.'”

Totally racist. It conjurs up images of white sheets and burning crosses every time I hear it. What was Erick thinking?

Yes, Zennie62 claims that “cocky” is a racial code word. Why? Because it was once used by a racist.

“In a rather wild thread called “Politically Correct Racism” [in the StormFront.org forum], Valhalladream let loose with the “C” word on Valentines Day, 2009 (there must be something wrong because Valhalladream should have been out with his girlfriend, right?) Valhalladream writes:

‘And the problem is – is that we are just so used to it. We laugh about it – shrug it off. Time has come to get just as “touchy” as them. Oh, and you know the election which was supposed to bring the country together in one big kum-by-ya love in and it will be like mixing coffee and cream and we will all “get along” and live happily ever after? NOT! I have been so much more openly antagonistic towards blacks – especially the ones who think they own the freakin’ world now because of that black sob in MY white house. They are getting really cocky. [I believe emphasis added by Zennie63] One crackhead in his pimp-mobile blocked an intersection and I opened my window and said “You better move that car you black ba_ _ _ _ _d!” He looked at me I think in shock and didn’t know how to react. I would have never done that a year ago. I don’t care. They need to be slammed back'”

Valhalladream’s rant is vile but that doesn’t mean that any of the words he chose to use are inherently racist; they are racist because his intent is racist. It’s difficult to know if Zennie62 really believes his ludicrous assertion, although I believe it’s much more likely that he just wants anyone who feels inclined to criticize President Obama to, you know, shut up.

This is intended to be paralyzing. Using this logic, every English word with a negative meaning  is no longer valid for use in discussing African-Americans because it’s surely been used at one time or another with racist intent.

The claims of racism coming out of the left are becoming increasingly absurd and obviously baseless but that’s okay with me. The sillier they get, the more harmless their claims become.

    It won’t be long before the PCers decide that the word “the” is racist, bigoted, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic or WHATEVER. The time is coming when we won’t be able to engage in civil disourse without cries of “racism,” “sexism,” etc. at our EVERY utterance. (they’ll probably accuse me of saying something nasty here.)

  2. Ha! Does this run to the ultimate extreme like some “Seven Degrees of Racist Code Wording” in which every single word in the English language is deemed racist, legislated as “hate speech,” and all non-protected persons will just have to exist in utter silence?

    Ridiculous. This PC insanity has to stop.

  3. The fact that you blogged about this indicates your own racist sentiments, bubbling just below the surface. Or something like that.

    I kid, but it’s only a matter of time.
