Racism, 'Racism", and "Microaggressions"

I think that the proper response to being denounced as racist today is to laugh heartily in the accuser's face. Then thank him/her for publicly admitting they have nothing with which to refute anything one has said, and must instead resort to shutting down the conversation with made up accusations.

The alternative is that the accuser is mentally ill, and should be treated with all the care any potentially dangerous person deserves.

Kevin Williamson discusses lefty racism in National Review.
Martin Bashir on the IRS scandal: “Republicans are using [it] as their latest weapon in the war against the black man. ‘IRS’ is the new ‘nigger.’” Touré on Mitt Romney’s vocabulary: “[He] said ‘anger’ twice. . . . I don’t say it lightly, but this is niggerization.” Jonathan Capehart: Mentioning that Obama went to Harvard is racist “because it insinuates that he took the place of someone else through affirmative action, that someone else being someone white.” Lawrence O’Donnell: “The Republican party is saying that the president of the United States has bosses, that the unions boss him around. Does that sound to you like they are trying to consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that, of course, of course a black man can’t be the real boss?” Janeane Garofalo: “Do you remember teabaggers? It was just so much easier when we could just call them racists. I just don’t know why we can’t call them racists, or functionally retarded adults.
The above speakers, of course, being Of The Left, are incapable of racism.

Or at least incapable of seeing their own vicious racism.
