Chris Matthews, MSNBC's own Wise Latina, began his latest attack by denouncing Ted Cruz's racism against "Browns".
Cruz had told a San Antonio audience that it was good to leave DC and come back to America.
"This isn't a casual reference," Matthews declared. Like Freudian psychoanalysts, MSNBC psychoracialists know that there are no such things as casual references. A misplaced comma can reveal unspeakable hidden depths of racism and does every time Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes run short of material.
The Freudian psychoanalyst assumed that if you had a dream about a duck or the Orient Express, you were harboring a secret desire for your grandfather. The MSNBC psychoracialist knows that if you don't like Obama, you're a racist. All that's left is finding the comma that proves it.
"This 'We're Americans, we white people out here in Texas, as opposed to people who live in the big cities: the ethnics, the blacks, the browns," Matthews sputtered. "'Those people in Washington, those liberals, they're not Americans.'"
Chris Matthews had clearly never been to San Antonio which is twice the size of Washington D.C. and one of the largest cities in America. It's also fairly diverse. And Ted Cruz is more ethnic and 'browner' than Chris Matthews. Though in all fairness so is a stick of chalk.
It might be more racist to refer to the "Browns" of D.C. than to name San Antonio the real America. But progressive psychoracialists never denounce themselves. They're too busy drawing racist inkblots of Ted Cruz. And if you disagree with them, you probably harbor desires for your great-grandfather... and are a racist.
"This is McCarthyism writ large. Disagree with this guy and be prepared for the accusations," Matthews said, demonstrating that he also has less self-awareness than a stick of chalk.
Oddly enough he wasn't talking about himself, but psychoracialists, like psychoanalysts, always find the dirty pictures and the racial slurs in someone else's Rorschach inkblot.
McCarthyism was overrated. If it hadn't affected Hollywood, which never stops making movies about its own reflection in the mirror, we would probably have all forgotten about it; the way that Hollywood forgot about the Gulags, the Khmer Rogue, the Great Chinese Famine and Mike Farrell. But unlike McCarthyism, McRacism never seems to go away.
McRacism is the mass production of an ersatz racism for mass consumption. A cheap fake substitute for the real thing.
Thanks to McRacism, there is now more racism than ever before. We're making less of everything except racism. There is somehow more racism to be found by dedicated progressive psychoracialists in a single Republican sneeze than there was in the entire first two centuries of American history.
The old racism was about slave plantations. The new racism is found in projecting your own distaste for "Blacks" and "Browns" onto a "Brown", who in a feat of Zimmermanian proportions, heads up the new Confederacy operating out of San Antonio; a city with more Latinos than the MSNBC janitorial staff (unlike its on-air staff.)
The liberal talking point of the government shutdown was that the Confederacy was back under the leadership of General Robert E. Cruz. The "South" was starting another civil war after having relocated to San Antonio and Michele Bachmann's Minnesota. The Latino/Minnesotan Confederacy had managed to take Washington and the only thing keeping it at bay was MSNBC's dedicated staff of critical race theorists carefully analyzing Cruz's sneezes for explosive racial content.
Progressive accusations of racism start with the conclusion and work backward toward the accusation. Ted Cruz's racism is a given considering that he's not only a Republican (boo! hiss!) but also a conservative (boo! boo!) and in cahoots with the TEA Party (%^&@!). It's just a matter of proving what is already known by taking any random thing he says and shouting, "Racism!"
Racism is the accusation that proves itself. There are certain kinds of people who can be racist and certain kinds who can't. Ted Cruz, who likes San Antonio better than Washington D.C., is always a racist. Chris Matthews, who relishes occasionally seeing "Browns" in Washington, DC, from the window of his limo, isn't.
Racism, like race, is an inescapable part of a person. It doesn't relate to the content of his character, but whether he likes America better than he likes Washington D.C.
Chris Matthews who likes Washington D.C. better than America can never be a racist no matter how much he blathers on about the blacks and browns of the city. Ted Cruz, who doesn't like DC, is a racist no matter if he's classified as White Hispanic, Brown Hispanic or Green Hispanic.
The real race of racism isn't skin color or genes. It's government. If you hate government, you're a racist.
It's one of those subliminal things, like an Oedipus or Electra complex. If you dream of a penny whistle and a lamppost, you must be harboring illicit desires for your great-great-grandmother. If you dream of restoring the Constitution and giving the bureaucracy the boot, you must be harboring illicit racial fantasies involving San Antonio.
And who better to explore the territory of subliminal racism with its illicit fantasies of abusing minorities than the progressives who have built an entire political system around that?
MSNBC racism requires a deep meditative state. The accuser spends some time floating in a sensory deprivation tank filled with Media Matters talking points. By the time he sits down in front of a camera, he is no longer aware that Ted Cruz is Cuban-American. Any facts extraneous to the organic process of calling a Republican racist have dissolved away along with his common sense.
Chris Matthews, the political hack's hack, who last had a new idea around the same time Dan Rostenkowski was stealing stamps, fills the empty space with globs of McRacism. The thing that really offends this professional of government isn't racial slurs... it's government slurs.
But there's no such thing as anti-government racism or anti-government hate crimes.
Not only isn't hating Washington a crime, it's practically a citizenship test. Despising the entire mess of politicians, aides, bureaucrats, lobbyists, union bosses and bartenders who make the government go round is the one bigotry that everyone can agree on.
The only way for government to get its own hate crime is by dressing up in blackface. Every time Chris Matthews cries "Racism", he's dressing up government in blackface. That's what the selection of Obama was really about. It made race equivalent to government.
Chris Matthews' government minstrel act is McRacism. Like other McRacist psychoracialists, he plumbs the depths of his own psychotic psyche to explain why government haters are racists to manufacture a cheap and offensive government substitute for racism that protects the abuses of career politicians and bureaucrats by teaching them to wear blackface and shout about racism.
McRacism is a blackface routine that makes hating government into the ultimate hate crime. Like McDonald's, you slap something that looks like a patty on something that looks like a bun. And don't ask too many questions about what's inside. You can't make 7 billion burgers a year or 7 trillion accusations of racism an hour on MSNBC without cutting a few corners.
McDonald's doesn't really make burgers and the Democrat Party's McRacism doesn't really fight racism. There aren't enough cows or bigots to go around for the purposes of either establishment. McDonald's has to make do with greasy cardboard cut into the shape of a patty. McRacism has to build narratives around any random comment criticizing the government.
The burger place is offering a cheap meal. The liberal place is offering cheap triumphs against fake racism. And both are seductive in their own way.
In the twilight of American history, with the frontier shut down and the military denigrated, the last "great" period of history held up by Baby Boomer academics and media personalities is the Civil Rights movement. But there's only so many times you can battle dogs and fire hoses or march from Selma unless you start churning out cheap McRacism imitations of civil rights and claiming that defending government authority at all costs is the real legacy of the Civil Rights movement.
Liberal McRacism is to Martin Luther King as a McDonald's burger is to a black Angus with caramel glaze on a hearth baked three-seed bun. It may be cheap, it may be fake but it is widely available.
MSNBC is the McDonald's of McRacism. It makes it cheaply and distributes it to everyone. And in a society where pervasive racism has become a distant memory, it's easier to convince a gullible generation that the greasy McRacism burger sticking out of Matthews' mouth is the real thing.
