As one of the left's remaining broadcasters, Thom Hartmann has decided to outmoron Ed Schultz.
A full eight months after Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) said that "Health" "Care" "Reform" being shoved down the throats of Americans would be 0bama's "Waterloo" and "it will break him", Thom Hartmann reminds us that there is never going to be enough time elapsed for any white Southerner to escape the past and not be considered a racist.
It has been over 145 years since any white man owned any black slave in South Carolina. Seven generations have passed since that sad time. Yet, clearly and obviously to TH when Sen. DeMint used the verb "to break", he was referring to the breaking of the slave, and that was clear to any and every white South Carolinian racist. (but I repeat myself)
Never mind that less than 50 years have passed since the Democrats stood up as the Party of segregation. Some of whom are still in Congress. They are absolved of all charges of racism due to their recent history of subjugating all people of color to special needs status.
Unfortunately TH does not just go after South Carolinians he also insinuates that Republicans are calling for a return of slave-breaking. Yes the Republicans that selected Lincoln as their candidate in 1860, the guy that we are all told "freed the slaves".
After 145 years these evil Republicans want to go back to the days of slavery - not just slavery, but Black slavery. As Senator DeMint plainly stated.
Mr. Hartmann illustrates a pattern on the left of being incapable of arriving at a conclusion that does not already fit your pre-conceived notions of your enemy.
