L.A. Times: Hey, Did We Mention That You Romney Voters are ALL Racists

Sandy Banks of the L.A. Times has figured out why anyone would vote against Barack Obama. Why, they are all racists, of course. Oh, you don’t use “the N word,” she tells us, but we know what you Romney voters really think.

Banks dropped all pretense of logic or fairness in her November 4 piece going right for the throat and claiming that the nation’s “kumbaya era” is over merely because a white man dared run against Barack Obama for the office of President of the United States.

Like all these hate-filled screeds that cast any non-Obama voter as a racist, Banks doesn’t bother trying to actually explain how a nation that elected a black man for president could suddenly, at the drop of a hat, revert to pre-civil rights oppression, she just states it straight as if it is obvious fact.

This has been the single most disgusting attack against Romney voters and, if Obama loses his bid for reelection, be prepared to see every last left-winger on TV and in the commentariat claim that the only reason Obama lost is because the country is filled with hood-wearing, Jim-Crow-loving, racists.

Banks notes that she and her “reporter” friends hear from people “on the campaign trail” who explain to them why they are voting for Romney this time.

When those flag-waving voters are asked what they mean, their take on the president makes it clear: He’s Kenyan-born, he’s a closet Muslim, he has European-socialist tendencies.

But, even those claims, she says, are lies fostered by Romney voters. Such voters, Banks says, are using Obama’s failure over the economy, his failures in foreign policy, and his bowing and scraping to our enemies as a “proxy” to hide their racist hearts.

No one is using the N-word these days. The “foreign” label is its proxy — a signal that Obama is the “other” in a nation trying to come to grips with seismic economic changes and unsettling demographic shifts.

Banks goes on to use that boring, pervasive idea popular among her fellows that code words explain how racism is as bad in America todayas its ever been. She can’t find any overt racism, of course, so she has to pretend she can read between the lines to find it.

This is the racebaiter’s oldest trick. As race relations improved in America — now to the point where but a relative few care much about race — the chiefs of the racebaiting industry have to employ mind reading exercises and plumb wild-eyed inference to “find” their racism so that they can continue to make money off of it.

Banks also issues one of the biggest hypocrisies I’ve seen in an article of this nature for sometime.

Banks tries to pretend that the solid, near 100% support that blacks have for left-wing Democrats somehow can’t be an exercise in racism. In fact, she tries to pretend that the near solid black vote for Democrats doesn’t even exist. How does she say that? Because we had Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas.

Obama’s race does indeed mobilize black voters; his vision coincides with our interests. But black voters don’t always lean black. Ask Clarence Thomas or Herman Cain about that.

Sorry, Mz Banks, but if whites voting in the majority for Romney is somehow an example of racism, there is no logical way to claim that blacks voting as a block for Obama isn’t racist.

Naturally, Banks uses that lie of a poll disgorged from the Associated Press last week to “prove” that racism is worse now than ever in America.

What we have here is someone that longs for real racism to return to America, a person using the failed Obama presidency as fodder to reignite it. Like all racebaiters, Sandy Banks wants the worst of racism to return in America so that she can continue to make money off the hate.
