The Totally-Not-Racist-At-All-Nope Party

RNC Chair Michael Steele explains that his party is Totally Not Racist:

Voicing opposition to the president’s policy proposals is not being a racist. It is being an American….

(…)

This summer, Americans had an opportunity to witness the miracle of our political system. All over the country ordinary American men and women, concerned about the Democrats’ policies coming out of Washington, took a stand and expressed their opposition. It was grassroots American political activism at its finest. Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike voiced their opinions in public forums to public officials. It was a shining example of how our Republic was designed to function. This activism has not faded with the summer sun. Last week Americans from all walks of life flooded Washington D.C. and continued their public opposition to President Obama’s government-run experiments.

As an African American, I know what racism is and that is not racism….

True, protesting against the president is absolutely not racist at all, at least not inherently.  But as Mr. Aravosis points out, Mr. Steele may be overlooking some teensy-weensy racial undertones to the anti-Obama sentiments, although he left out a couple of classics. Pam Spaulding also has an excellent and depressing compendium of Republican racism.

If Obama is as horrible as the Republicans say, then surely there should be so much material to attack him with that they have no need to portray him as a monkey or a witch doctor, right?
