LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obama taxation the real racism

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

Let’s pretend for a moment that we are reckless, irresponsible Democrats. Specifically, let’s pretend we are just like those Democrats who cry racism every time events unfold that are not to their liking.

Because I don’t like President Obama’s idea of raising taxes on the wealthy, it must follow that he is racist, correct? After all, the vast majority of the wealthy in this country are white. Because our mixed-race president is waging an economic war against a specific group of mostly white Americans, he is, by liberal logic, therefore racist.

It has long been contended that minorities cannot be racist because they lack the power to enforce racism’s insidious views. In this case, though, Mr. Obama indeed has the power and authority to inflict his damaging views on those less powerful than himself. Moreover, he is inciting others to join in with his denunciation of this specific group of people based upon their race.
