Analysis: Palin's words carry racial tinge
The evidence is, to author Douglass K. Daniel, as clear as the nose on his face:
"Our opponent ... is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country," Palin told a group of donors in Englewood, Colo. A deliberate attempt to smear Obama, McCain's ticket-mate echoed the line at three separate events Saturday.Yeah. Palin is accusing Obama of being comfortable in the company of white terrorists. That's clearly evidence of racism -- in the mind of a man whose head is so far up his hindquarters (or, perhaps those of his preferred candidate).
Ayers is very much the unrepentant terrorist. The evidence is there for any and all to see, if they're only willing to read the man's words, and look at his record. And Ayers is not the only one -- his wife, Bernadette Dohrn, is number two in the book. There are plenty more where that came from. It's not racist to bring this issue to the forefront. It's politics, and it's only right, considering Obama's track record and his associations.
As the old line goes, "Who smelt it dealt it."
