Democrats in the media and in politics have so over-used cries to racism in an attempt to marginalize legitimate opposition that the word has rapidly lost the stigma attached to it. Indeed, in the context of the political blogosphere, bloggers on the center-right have been using the term self-referentially as a sarcastic bit of snark to the constant knee-jerk claims of racism they know will radiate from progressives.

It's a shame the left has decided to make such reckless use of the word in an attempt to stifle opposition, because when real racism occurs, calling it out with the level of derision it deserves becomes that much more difficult.

This is real racism.

When you walk into the Georgia Peach Oyster Bar in Paulding County, you feel like you've walked into a different era.

Behind the pool tables stands a mannequin in a Klu Klux Klan costume, but it's what's outside of the Patrick Lanzo's restaurant that has some people angry.
Lanzo put up a sign that reads "Obama's plan for health-care: N*&%*r rig it."

Keep that link bookmarked, lefties. The next time you feel the urge to tar someone as a racist as a catch-all smear, you can use that as a touchstone.

Sadly, labeling people such as Lanzo as a racist simply isn't the pejorative it once was, thanks to those who have turned the label into a joke.

Update: Another Black Conservative is on the same wavelength.

"The term 'racist has been seriously over-used recently. It's time for a one month moratorium on the word to allow it to build up power again. Until then, use xenophobe, sexist, homophobe or fascist to get your insult across."

Easy folks, we are dealing with an Psychological illness
It explains much of the left's behaviour and we should definetly make use of this suggestion from the article:
"Humor has great value in any attempt to work with projection..."
So when they complain that we are making fun of them, it's okay, it's part of their therapy.
I feel better already.

@Pat: bringing facts into this discussion will go nowhere. It's hate that is cultivated here.

THIS is racist.

You lead a sheltered life if you think that is the touchstone of racism.
