You must be part of the movement now trying to support Obama's losing support by claiming that anyone who disagrees with him & his policies is a racist.  That puts you in the racist category as does your post. Ad hominem BS convinces nobody except the Obami choir. You have wasted your time.

More on the protest at the capital this last weekend:
MKH: ... Tea Party Protesters, Black Family Reunion Particpants Peacefully Break Bread Together, WaPo Weeps at the Racism
... &
ibid: ...

The great irony of this Washington Post story, cloyingly titled "Seeking Healing, Seeing Hostility," is that if tea party protesters and Black Family Reunion participants had been able to get past the reporter's pathetic, deliberate focus on race, they would have found that "strengthening the black family" and the African-American community's "traditional values"—the goal of the Black Family Reunion—is something the two sides would have largely agreed upon.

I have no doubt that a few of the good Americans at both events were able to realize that, have a nice conversation, listen to some gospel, and have a snack together on the day the Post insists on memorializing as "The Day a Giant Race War Was Just Barely Averted."

Isn't it great to live in a post-racial society?

exactly my solution to getting rid of racism 714

More racism on the left:
FoxNews: ... Congressman Suggests People Will Don 'White Hoods' If Wilson Not Rebuked
In an obvious reference to the Ku Klux Klan, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., says that people will put on "white hoods and ride through the countryside" if emerging racist attitudes, which he says were subtly supported by Rep. Joe Wilson, are not rebuked. He said Wilson must be disciplined as an example.

Let us remind the left & the president that the first amendment has not yet been repealed!

FoxNews commentary: ... 'Playing the Race Card' Is a Risky Political Ploy
Critics were accusing former President Jimmy Carter of race-baiting on Wednesday after he called South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's "You lie!" outburst an act "based in racism." It's a strategy that has often backfired among politicians who tap race to score points.
... In fact it is racist!  This race baiting of the valid tea party demonstrations & criticism of the president & congress is nothing about race.  Saying that it is robs the president of his leadership & says that he fails not on his own but because of his race.  In a way playing the race card is saying that if he fails it is because of race, but if he succeeds it is because he personally is great. Nice odds!  In a post-racial world, however enticing it is to go back to it, BHO is right to distance himself from Carter's own racism.
    714 stand up tall!

You got that one totally switched around in your head.  Carter is saying nothing about Obama failing.  Carter, and I, are asking if all the false opposition is motivated by fear of his race.  Point of fact is he is leading just fine.  If things fail, they will fail because of the circumstances.  If things fail because of the false opposition, and if that false opposition is race motivated, then shame of the racists like Limbaugh and Beck and Hannity.  This is not about Obama, this is about the false BS being trumped up against him.

False opposition is in the mind of the truly sick; your racist mind needs some meds.

Leadership is beyond circumstances. -M.R.
P.S. They teach that to you both in the military & in civilian management.

Again a cartoon does a good job of contextualizing your PC BS.

Strangely enough even BHO gets it:
Yahoo News: ...  President Barack Obama said Friday that angry criticisms about his health care agenda are driven by an intense debate over the proper role of government — and not by racism.

"Are there people out there who don't like me because of race? I'm sure there are," Obama told CNN. "That's not the overriding issue here."


...Did they forget to send out the memo to the Obami?
Another view of the protest & the day after is provided here by MKH.  She compares her experience at both the Tea Party Rally & the Obamacare rally the next day of a few hundred people. 
TWS (MKH): ... Dozens of signs mocked Joe Wilson for yelling, "You lie" during the president's joint-session speech. Wilson's outburst, for which he was disciplined in the House, gave voice to conservative fears that health care reform might include benefits for illegal immigrants without enforcement mechanisms--fears the Obama administration has dismissed as conservative paranoia. But flanking the "You lie" signs at the Obamacare rally was this one: "Health reform for all illegal immigrants."
