Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

The n-word got dropped on MSNBC’s The Cycle this week. The show’s co-host [No First Name] Touré called Mitt Romney’s use of the word “angry” to describe some of the rhetoric coming out of the White House as “the ‘niggerization’ of Obama”:

“You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

Naturally this led to a battle between Touré and conservative co-host S.E. Cupp. She took particular issue with the fact that Touré admitted that VP Joe Biden‘s “chains” comments were divisive, but is now calling Romney a “racist” for saying the Obama campaign is “angry.”

“Do you see how dishonest that is?” she asked.

Good question. But here’s a better one: Doesn’t talk of race and code-words obscure the real issue here, anger?

Romney shouldn’t be calling for the Obama administration to be less angry. He should be angry himself, and castigating the president and his crew for being angry at the wrong things.

We should be angry at the continuation of wars, foreign (the Middle East) and domestic (on psychoactive drug use), to the detriment of fiscal stability as well as our civil liberties.

We should be angry that the nation’s pension system has been systematically stripped of its surpluses for 77 years — by politicians in Washington.

We should be angry that federal (along with state) policy has interfered with medicine to such an extent that the most idiotic ideas around — nationalization/socialization — almost seemed plausible to a sizable minority of Americans.

We should be angry that the Democrats pushed through yet another expensive entitlement, “Obamacare,” while the rest of the federal government sunk further into insolvency.

And yes, we should be angry that our leaders can’t stick to decent issues.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Got right to the heart of the whole problem. Fantastic piece!

    When economies collapse, the public has traditionally vented its anger on those at the helm. I expect that there will not be near enough evil rich to castigate by the government to qwell the rage that middle America is building over the destruction of the republic.
    Perhaps they are right to be buying millions of rounds of ammo. Spect that they had better get used to the MREs also, since it may not be safe to leave the building.
    The majority of America, the middle class, are not only productive but also creative. We get organized VERY fast. Wonder how long it will take to come up with a workaround for a government that has barricaded itself in?

    Romney should request all of obamas records on obamas immagration to the U.S., i.e. passport , collage applications , applicantions for student Aid. , records at Harvard Review. Various home addresses. before releasing any of rommney’s records.

    Democrats may have ‘pushed through’ Obamacare but they won’t suffer for it. Until we the American people do more than get angry at our leaders – until we send them packing, nothing will change.
