Before I get started, 2 quick notes about the headline. I know the blog post to which I’m referring makes 3 such accusations in the headline, but they wouldn’t all fit, so I chose the most inflammatory. Second, yeah, if you say it fast, it sounds like “Anti-Semitic Clit,” but grow up.
Just what products does the RNC propose you buy with your new Obama credit card? Anti-semitic, anti-Latino, and overtly pornographic literature – with pictures to boot.
Basically, the RNC site is set up as a faux online business, like Amazon.com, where you can buy goods by doing word searches. Search for the word “car,” for instance, and you get pictures of various cars and how much you can pay for them with your ObamaCard.
The funny thing is, you’d have to be a moonshine-swilling ignoramus to get worked up over this to begin with. “They got pichers, ta boot? How’d they get them pichers in thar? Witchcraft? Soul-thievery?”
Obviously, the site uses some kind of filtered search engine, like Google Shopping or Amazon. While probing the search feature for results like this carries the same juvenile charge that reading the word “shit” in the dictionary does, accusing the RNC of anti-semitism in the headline takes it from fun to frakked up. You could as easily accuse Google of “promoting,” well, pretty much anything on the entire series of tubes.
I get the whole partisan warfare thing, and I get that the right doesn’t always fight fair, either, so please spare me that argument. All crying “Wolf!” does is make people tune you out when you actually do have something important to say.
