Richard Wolffe: This dog-eating thing is about treating Obama as the other

posted at 7:59 pm on April 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

See, I thought the dog-eating thing was a surreal goof on the left’s moronic preoccupation with Romney’s dog, but here’s the author of “Revival 2.0: How the Obama White House Is Making Its Political Comeback” to set me straight. The good news? This actually isn’t the dumbest example of “dog whistle” detection (no pun intended) over the past 24 hours. The bad news? I predicted the left wouldn’t start making bad-faith accusations of racism to quiet down the dog-eating silliness until Monday at the earliest. I was almost right — so far they’ve mostly stuck to “what’s wrong with eating dogs?” equivocation — but, as of this show’s airing, I’m off the mark. My mistake. Say this much for Wolffe, though: The fact that he took umbrage about treating opponents as “alien creatures” on a show that ended yesterday with a wholly gratuitous detour into Romney’s Mormonism suggests a certain sense of humor. Why, if it had been Mitt who’d dined on dog as a kid, I bet he’d get the joke straightaway.

Two clips for you, one of Wolffe and the other — well, it’s self-explanatory. Be sure to watch to the end of the MSNBC clip too to see Jonathan Alter weigh in, quite earnestly, on dog-eating and how it’s the right’s attempt to “fuzz up” Obama’s Very Serious talking point about Romney’s dog. That’s … sort of true, I suppose, if by “fuzz up” you mean “highlight the dispiriting, insulting ridiculousness of.” Exit question: Did Newt start the dog wars? Oh, the irony.

No, it’s about Obama treating dogs as the other, other white meat.

If he ate dog once, it probably wasn’t the only time.

It may be okay in the Third World, but I have three dogs, and the idea makes me want to throw up.

The Right doesn’t have to “Otherize” Obama. He did it to himself.

On the other hand, if Obama is re-elected, much of America will have to turn to eating their dogs…or starve….

Indonesians don’t eat dogs… and while there is a large Chinese population in Indonesia I think Obama made up the story… which kind of makes him racist against asians.

Don L on April 20, 2012 at 11:47 PM

I suspect most of America would starve first. We’re rather particular about how we treat our companion animals.

That’s why the liberals are so incensed about the conservative response — it hits at precisely the weak spot in Mr. Obama’s armor — the one he tried to disarm early in the first election by waving a dollar bill and noting how different George looked from Barack….

That tactic won’t work — Mr. Obama can’t produce a certificate attesting that he only tasted a dog once — not with his memoir making it a positive experience for him…

unclesmrgol on April 21, 2012 at 2:09 AM

Obama deserves the roasting he’s getting for a whole host of reasons.

Wow, there is a libertarian version of the liberal “but how can you sit here and have breakfast, while there is hunger in africa?”-spiel?

Valkyriepundit on April 21, 2012 at 3:48 AM

Obama’s description of eating those things, dog, snake, grasshopper, refers only to his “introduction” to them and their texture. He never expresses any opinion himself – even six to ten year-olds have some reactions – or comment on the taste, which is odd. No expression of disgust, curiosity, pleasure, anything.

Bottom line, as Treacher so aptly expressed the other night on Twitter when assailed for ragging on the dog-meat story: “Hey, you wanted to talk about dogs. Okay, let’s talk about dogs!”

Adjoran on April 21, 2012 at 5:33 AM

What would do him in is if evidence surfaces that it wasn’t a dog that he ate – but a puppy, gulp…

The whispers alone would do it.”Psssst, I have it on good word, straight from the Secret Service Facebook page,where they overheard that as soon as Obama is re-elected, he’ll pass flexible federal regulations that allow and encourage breeding puppies, gasp, for the consumer market.

Don L on April 21, 2012 at 7:30 AM

I’m late to this, so forgive me if this (obvious) comment has been made already, but here goes:

Of COURSE it is, you jackass! Just like talking about Romney’s family history of polygamy was. Not only did you guys invent it, it was an especially stupid strategy for a side whose own guy is as weird (and with MORE polygamy in his background) as anybody the GOP could have put up. You should have known better than to call this particular tune, but that’s not OUR fault, Jack.

So reap the whirlwind, assh*** — you guys asked for it.

“…treating Obama as the other.”

Shouldn’t that be “treating Obama like the other”?

The other what?

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) tends to talk a lot about “the other.” Their use of the word in that sense is one of many reasons I left their ranks.

“Other” should remain an adjective. Not only has it become a noun in some circles, it is also used as a verb — e.g. “othering.” I have yet to hear someone say, “Let’s go othering today,” but it is probably only a matter of time.

KyMouse on April 21, 2012 at 9:44 AM

It’s hurtful to the socialist scum when they get beaten at their own game. They will resort to whatever mean, viscous, and cruel tactic at their disposal.

We must continue to laugh at them and expose them. The louder their cries of racism the more desperate they are. Remember whenever they start to lose the argument on the merits they resort to personal attacks or change the subject.

That is what this jackass is trying to do.

dogsoldier on April 21, 2012 at 10:07 AM

This is ridiculous. The dog-eating meme can’t be both a distraction and about treating Obama as the other. If the Republicans are trying to treat Obama as the other because they are racist, then it can’t be a mere distraction, because their racism would be central to their opposition to Obama.

At any rate, the Dems are in for a rude awakening. These kinds of shameless attacks, indicating that the Republicans are racist, aren’t going to convince anybody that isn’t already similarly predisposed. The Dems aren’t going to be able to win this election by amping up their base, because their base isn’t anywhere near big enough to win without moderates.

But this time, instead of getting embarrassed and saying “stop being mean,” we shot back and effectively turned the joke on them.

Richard Wolffe: This dog-eating thing is about treating Obama as the other

Right you are, Dick. But not the racial way you probably intend it. Øbama is “the other”, a foreign outsider, in terms of his worldview, ideology, experience and values. Politically and culturally non-indigenous, his rule contravenes local values rooted in our national tradition.

Get a clue, Dick. Read The American Thinker: A Stranger in Our Midst.

The quote above comes from Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, who visited Obama Sr.’s childhood village of Kogelo, Kenya, in December 2008. Kristof fretted:

‘Frankly, I worry that enemies of Obama will seize upon details like his grandfather’s Islamic faith or his father’s polygamy to portray him as an alien or a threat to American values. But snobbishness and paranoia ill-become a nation of immigrants, where one of our truest values is to judge people by their own merits, not their pedigrees’.

Here’s some irony:

Obowma outlaws production of the Edison lightbulb. Thomas Edsion tried and failed 1001 times before he succeeded in a working lightbulb, a lightbulb that costs under $1 to purchase at the local hardware store and has been in production for 150 years. Obowma has a competition to produce an LED bulb that sells for $60 bucks at the hardware store, due to Obowma’s belief in the gov’t prodution of products even though the idea has failed for hundreds of years in example after example.

Edison was successful after many failures, Obowma continues to try the failed model without any success.

What is the definition of insanity?

dthorny on April 21, 2012 at 1:21 PM

Hey, hold on, DOGGONE IT! Who was it that first introduced DOG into this debate? It was the left! But I must say, I think it’s hilarious to watch these fools scrambling around trying to explain away and defend Obama’s dog eating. ;-)

gryphon202 on April 20, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Exactly my thoughts. The silver spoon jab – definitely trying to make Mitt “the other” and part of that nasty 1%. And it might be racist too. Has a black man ever been accused of being born with one?

And the left’s attacks on Mormonism definitely fall in the same category. Does the left really want to go there? Do they really want to get us talking about James Cone’s Black Liberation Theology, that Barry was indoctrinated with for about 20 years? The Pope has declared Liberation Theology to be a perversion of the Gospel.

Honestly, I really feel that no matter what the left attacks with, they’ll be opening themselves up for a bigger counter. Obama’s background (what we know), career and presidency are a target-rich environment.

Here’s a passage from the second paragraph of the first chapter of “Dreams From My Father,” in which Obama describes his life on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at age 25 (circa 1986):

When the weather was good, my roommate and I might sit out on the fire escape to smoke cigarettes and study the dusk washing blue over the city, or watch white people from the better neighborhoods nearby walk their dogs …

And right on cue we learn that Dem Governor Brian
Schweitzer

A day after Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) said that Mitt Romney’s family came from “a polygamy commune in Mexico,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee defended his father in an interview with Fox News.

Actually I believe it is BHO’s father who was a polyamist and there is only one Great Great Grandfather in Romney’s family who was a polgamist. His grandparents who lived in Mexico in protest of the law restricting Mormons did so out of principle because they both had one marriage to each other.

Indeed. And I hope you understood when I said ‘mere dog’, I was referring sarcastically to Islamic beliefs, certainly not what I or the 99.9% hold dear.

May his own audacity of deceit and derision be his undoing.

America hasn’t ‘treated him like a dog’. Quite the converse. He was given every opportunity by the blind and deluded. Moreover, it is Obama who has treated us like a dog in his efforts to destroy this nation and All we hold dear.

He is, in fact, the Other.
