Challenging Racism is Racist say Race Card Republicans.

Tea party conservatives hate fighting racism. It's so divisive.

In a perfect example of pretzel logic, with a dash of white supremacy thrown in, I thought these political hit pieces stood out. Example one.

Challenging racism is racist: Check out how the Daily Caller reporter below blatantly turned "speech" into "policing thought:”
Is America Starting to Target Thought Crime? Last week, Michelle Obama made headlines when she exhorted graduating high schoolers in a commencement address to monitor their families for politically incorrect thoughts and behaviors. "First lady Michelle Obama is encouraging students to monitor their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any racially insensitive comments they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made."
“Comments,” not "thoughts," right? But conservatives don't see a difference…
Oh, if only we could control what other people think and feel. But until that magic day arrives, all we can do is set people against each other based on race, under the guise of “fighting racism.”
Don’t fight racism. It only divides people.

Scott Walker is a Racist: Let's just be honest about Walker and not sugar coat this or give him the benefit of the doubt. You don't try to leave racism alone or act like it doesn't exist if you're not okay with it. As I blogged back in September:

Walker is fixated on banning dissent, which he sees as a divisive “tone,” and wants to replace it with positive messaging and happy talk. In other words, ignore the problem.
“Instead of focusing on what divides us, we need to concentrate on what brings us together. We need to change the tone in America from chants and rallies that fixate on racial division." -Scott Walker
We can only unite the nation if we don't make racists angry. 

Michelle Obama, not like Laura Bush…who’s white.
Michelle Obama just disgraced America once again by complaining about unnecessary issues as the First Lady. Laura Bush would’ve never done this!
This is racist reporting. And our great defenders of the Constitution and free speech don’t like some free speech, especially a black person denouncing racism:
Look who's now calling people racist.
Michelle recently spoke at the Tuskegee University graduation in Alabama and instead of focusing on an inspirational message, she took the time to vent out her frustrations as the First Lady. She took the trendy route of racism as the root of the criticism she received during Obama’s 2008 campaign.
“As the first African-American First Lady, I was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations; conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and misperceptions of others. Was I too loud, or too angry, or too emasculating? Or was I too soft, too much of a mom, not enough of a career woman?”
Fighting racism is racism; leave us racists alone?
With all of the tragedies our society is facing today, you would think our First Lady wouldn’t perpetuate racism- especially not when speaking at a graduation to individuals full of so much potential. Look at the crowd listening to her—it is predominantly young, impressionable African Americans who are about to embark on their new careers and contributions to society.
When will black people like Michelle Obama be grateful and know their place:
Our First Lady should appreciate the honorable role she has received and not constantly complain about petty issues or create a stronger divide in America racially. If you’re tired of Michelle’s unnecessary complaints, share this article!

Ha! If the racist card is all progressives have left to play, you better just fold. You're not holding anything.

Yes. Call em racist when you fail to present a logical argument. That's the equivalent of "I'm telling mommy."

Pathetic.

No, that's the equivalence of the GOP's "I know you are but what am I."

The projection in your statement is hilarious to us outside of the Bubble.

The victim complex and general whininess of today's Republican is such weak sauce.
