Before Scott Brown’s election, Howard Fineman (Newsweek) and Keith Olbermann (MSNBC) speculated that pickup trucks are code for racism. Yeah, because the people of Massachusetts have always been closet racists and just voted for Obama and countless extreme Liberals these past decades out of white guilt. All they needed to see was a couple campaign ads with pickups and voila’, out came their inner Jim Crow!
FINEMAN: Maybe not in Massachusetts, but maybe in some places, there are codes, there are images, ah, you know, there are pickup trucks, uh, you could say there was a racial aspect to it one way or another.
OLBERMANN: What were the Scott Brown ads, though? Every one of the Scott Brown ads had him in a pickup truck.
FINEMAN: That’s why I mentioned pickup trucks. I mean, my mind goes back to Fred Thompson down in Tennessee.
Hot Air asked some obvious questions:
Pickup trucks are now racist? I’m curious; do the people who make trucks also qualify as racists? How about the truck manufacturers that advertise on NBC and MS-NBC? I wonder if they like the implication that pickup trucks and the people who buy them are really latent haters and bigots. Maybe someone should let them know about it, huh?
But here’s the most amazing thing to me: Fineman, Olbermann and virtually all these Liberals are pro-legalized abortion, which destroys black children at a rate three times that of whites.
Meditate on that. Those that are the first to cry RAAAAACISM almost always support unrestricted abortions, which are genocidal to the black community.
No, pickup trucks aren’t racist. But abortion rates in the U.S. are.
Are pro-choicers racist? Perhaps not, but which would be more evidence for racism: Pickup trucks or supporting a process that kills blacks at a rate 3x that of whites?
Which sounds more like a code phrase for racism: “I drive a pickup truck” or “We support unrestricted abortions because we don’t want children to be poor.” (Uh, and what color are most of those children, proportionately speaking?)
Never let pro-choicers (or anyone else, for that matter) call Conservatives racist. Remind them that Planned Parenthood kills more black human beings in a day than the KKK ever did. If supporting a process that kills blacks at a rate 3x that of whites isn’t racist, what is?
