During the calmer days of my life, I return to my hobby of moonbat watching. So far I have identified more than 150 new species that have cropped up since President Barack Obama’s inauguration. Often when you see a moonbat, it will just fly by without anyone noticing. The Obamabutticusphileas moonbat is one that comes to mind. Locally abundant and prolific, they are literally everywhere. But most moonbats are effective at letting everyone know of their presence, even if it means holding their breath until they start to turn blue…or should I say black?
There are many justifications in the list of debts this country owes to the African American community. After all, the country especially the South was built on the sweat and free labor from slaves. There was a time when African Americans lived in fear of whites. Lynchings, segregation, and church bombings are all unfortunate memories that contribute to the phenomenon of collective trauma faced by African Americans today.
In terms of generations, the 1970’s usually serves as the demarcation line between blacks who experienced the tumultuous days of the civil rights movement and those like me who only experienced them through second hand passed down stories. Some stories are poignantly uttered from the lips of grandmother who was told to eat her meal in the alley behind a restaurant. Other stories are diluted with whitewash in high school textbooks.
When my grandmother spoke of racism, the America we both knew and loved seemed like two quite different countries. My life is a testament to this duality. I was never a housekeeper, I was called a nigger only once compared to her numerous times, I sat anywhere I wanted to on the bus and ate my cheeseburgers at the Woolworths luncheonette counter. I completed college and post graduate degrees. I enjoyed friendships with blacks, Hispanics, whites and Asians. I have dated interracially without any major incident. Speaking for myself, I am thankful that I was fortunate enough to be born during a time when real progress was being made in America concerning unity and equality for all ethnicities, genders. I always knew that I would live to see an African American President of the United States of America. However in the summer of 2009, racism is too much with us.
This brings me to a particular type of individual that I have decided to elevate to moonbat status. Louduous RaceriumBaitidae (Order: liberalis, Family: Obamabutticus). In layman’s terms: Race Baiters. Of the following which is a race baiter?
- A black woman is called into her supervisor’s office. The supervisor explains to her that she is being placed on probation due to her frequent tardiness. She counters by citing racial discrimination due the differences in commuting times between herself, fellow minority colleagues and those who white who live closer to the workplace. The company is in a predominantly white neighborhood and all of the minority workers live far away.
- A single Latina mother receives her son’s report card. He has received a failing grade in English. The mother immediately confronts her son’s English teacher, who is African American and calls him a racist who has no consideration for her son’s difficulty learning a new language.
- A group of white undergraduate students write a complaint to the university president. They have found that the Asian students receive all A’s in all subjects. While the Asian students excel in science and mathematics courses, their skills in the humanities and social sciences is average. The group accuses the faculty of inflating the grades of the Asian students due to a false perception that Asians are smarter and better students than Americans.
The louduous racerium baitidae species of moonbat mainly inhabits the Democratic Party. They can be recognized by their ability to find racism and prejudice in every possible situation. This extends to not supporting political candidates that are of color. If you do not support the policies and administration of President Barack Obama, louduous racerium baitidae will call you a racist. If you utter Barack Obama’s middle name “Hussein”, louduous racerium baitidae will call you a racist. If you are not in favor of affirmative action, louduous racerium baitidae will call you a racist. In the paranoid eyes of this moonbat, everyone who fails to fondle and pander to minorities, is a racist- even if you yourself are a minority. During the 2008 Democratic primaries, PUMA’s were called racists by louduous racerium baitidae moonbats because they supported Hillary Rodham Clinton. Despite Barack Obama being named the official presidential nominee of the DNC, many PUMAs refused to support him in the presidential election. Some PUMAs such as myself, voted for the GOP nominee Senator John McCain (R- Arizona), others voted for Green Party nominee, Cyhthia Mckinney, while many did not vote at all in protest of the treatment of women during the primaries. Most PUMAs are women which qualifies us as minorities under the equal protection clause of the constitution. But guess what? According to louduous racerium baitidae we are all racists.
There is a false perception that most if not all members of the louduous racerium baitidae moonbat species are minorities . This is simply not true. While Caucasian members of louduous racerium baitidae tend to be diminutive when compared to those who are minorities such as the Rev. Al Sharpton (liberalis sharp-tongues racium bacteria) , there are some who are the exception to the perception. Take for instance Janeane Garofolo who is Caucasian and of the liberalis vulgarus variety. In April of 2009, Ms. Garofolo accused anyone who attended organized anti –taxation, and anti-stimulus “tea parties” of being racist homophobes. Journalists Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC are also two Caucasians of the louduous racerium baitidae moonbat species which come to mind.
The shrieking of race baiters can normally be heard during signs of BarackObama’s dwindling approval ratings, as experienced with his recent public verbal run in with the Cambridge Police Department over an incident which did not directly involve our president.
The louduous racerium baitidae moonbat must be stopped because it feeds off residual memories from past racial trauma. This moonbat is moving all to buoyantly throughout society while failing to see the consequences of falsely accusing people of being racist. Mostly running on nervous liberal energy and fear of losing an argument, trumped up charges of prejudice is the court of last resort for louduous racerium baitidae. Very sad indeed in light of the election of an African American president and our being blessed with a “post-racial” society.
Let’s work together to control this pesky moonbat. Speak out when you see someone being unjustly accused of racism. This “boy who cried racism” meme only turns back the clock and excerbates any credible racial tensions which reside in America today.
