Maddow Clueless Over Political Ad

Earlier this week, Rachel Maddow reported on the I Guess I'm A Racist polictal ad. Both she and her guest Melissa Harris-Lacewell were clueless about the ad, wondering why Americans would have to worry about being called racist for opposing Obama and his policies. Maddow even accused the ad of being a strawman arguement in the healthcare debate.

Apparently, Maddow does not understand why Americans would fear allegations of racism for opposing Obama and his policies.

Gee, Rach, could it be because your network often allows libtards like Janeane Garofalo to label protestors “tea-bagging rednecks” who are only “hating a black man in office”?

Could it be because your network allows pundits like David Shuster to label protests against Obama as being “intolerance festivals” which contain “white, whiter, and whitest”?

Could it be because your network is known for race-baiting Republican figures like Sarah Palin, whose book-signing crowd was labeled “white vs. other people”?

But hey, we can’t blame Rachel. We can’t expect her to see the race-baiting in her network or political party.
