Olby: Pretty much all criticism of Obama is racist

posted at 9:56 pm on September 8, 2009 by Allahpundit

We haven’t checked in on the reincarnation of Edward R. Murrow in awhile. Apparently he called off the search for dirt on Glenn Beck today — he’s just too darn moral, you see — but don’t you fret. Not only does he regard virtually all criticism of The One from the right to be crypto-racist in nature but he goes out of his way here to agree with Van Jones’s assessment that Republicans are “assholes.” TV critics keep drawing ironic demagogic parallels between him and his bete noire O’Reilly but I don’t remember Bill O calling Democrats A-holes back when I used to watch the Factor regularly. Has he taken to doing that lately? I know Keith is scrupulous about not acting like a bigger jackass than the guy he deems to be the biggest jackass on TV.

Just wanted to flag this in case anyone mistakenly thought that Garofalo’s views on race were too wild and woolly even for “Countdown.” On the contrary.

Is Olby still doing his “Worst Person Ratings in the World” shtick?

I love how now that O! is president, America gets no kudos for being a mostly race-blind society. Instead, political disagreements with the dems now demonstrates that america is the most racist country in the world.

Is there anything that does not prove racism to a leftist? Why is it racist to oppose Obama but not racist to oppose Michael Steel. If any opposition to a black politician’s policy preferences indicates racism, then the democrats are racist, b/c they oppose the republican’s agenda and the leader of the GOP is a black man, Michael Steel.

Somehow, it is only racist to oppose the political agenda of a black democrat.

How do these people live with themselves? Have they no conscience? No morals? No ethics whatsoever? doesn’t it bother them that they must try to win arguments by demonizing their oppenents and lying about their agenda?

In all seriousness, do all liberals believe that any tactic is alright if used to acheive liberal goals? That the end always justifies the means?

This is a classic example that Keith is not dosing properly. He was speaking in circles and Chris seemed confused to respond to his comments. Clearly Olby and Barfalo needs to check themselves back into the hospital.

To recap ……. I wonder if Olby actually looked at the videos or listened to recordings of Jones spewing his Racist rhetoric!

Very entertaining Olby…..

I cant watch it. I get this urge to purge whenever I see that loser Krazy Kieth.

Memo to Olberman: There will be reprisals.

Olby is King of the Douche Bags!

Is it true that Obly is wearing a wig?

If so, that should be our rallying cry going forward.
