Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

David Gregory to Newt: Say, isn’t it racist to note that food stamp use has skyrocketed under Obama?

While I have been piling on Newt recently, and rightly so, this is one instance where I have to defend the big goof.  From Meet the Press, hosted by hostile-to-conservatives (yet untouchably “objective”) David Gregory:

DAVID GREGORY, HOST: What, what about jobs? Jobless rate now at 9 percent. You gave a speech on Friday in Georgia, and you said the following about this president:


NEWT GINGRICH: You want to be a country that creates food stamps, in which case frankly Obama’s is an enormous success. The most successful food stamp president in American history. Or do you want to be a country that creates paychecks?

(End videotape)

GREGORY: First of all, you gave a speech in Georgia with language a lot of people think could be coded racially-tinged language, calling the president, the first black president, a food stamp president.

Gingrich wasn’t having it:

GINGRICH: Oh, come on, David.

GREGORY: What did you mean? What was the point?

REP. GINGRICH: That’s, that’s bizarre. That–this kind of automatic reference to racism, this is the president of the United States. The president of the United States has to be held accountable. Now, the idea that–and what I said is factually true. Forty-seven million Americans are on food stamps. One out of every six Americans is on food stamps. And to hide behind the charge of racism? I have–I have never said anything about President Obama which is racist.

Numbers are racist.  So are stats.  And statistical numbers.  And numerical statistics.  Racist, all of them.  And if you look at numbers, you’re a racist, too.

This has been the m.o. of the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) since the man-child announced he was running in 2007: any criticism of his policies or the havoc they have wreaked upon this country will automatically and reflexively be chalked up to racism.

That’s one of the many things I’ve always loathed about modern liberalism: for an ideology that fancies itself to be intellectually nuanced, its adherents sure are a bunch of emotional twits devoid of any real rational thought or critical thinking skills.  Just like my blog’s subtitle says about liberalism: Why think when you can feel?

As for NBC and Gregory: nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. I think it’s about time to call for Newt Neutrality

  2. It’s interesting how David Gregory made a racial assumption when Newt talked about food stamps. I love to make lefties squirm when I expose their racial assumptions! The leftists smugly pat themselves on the back in their leftist condescension, which is just as insidious and detrimental as full-frontal bigotry.
