• George Will: Liberals Have “Tourette’s Syndrome” When It Comes To Racism


    On Fox News Sunday author and columnist George Will said “Liberalism has a kind of Tourette’s syndrome these days. It’s just constantly saying the word ‘racism’ and ‘racist.’ It’s an old saying in the law. If you have a law on your side, argue the law, if you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. If you have neither, pound the table. This is pounding the table. There is a kind of intellectual poverty now. Liberalism hasn’t had a new idea since the 1960s except ObamaCare and the country doesn’t like it. Foreign policy is a shambles from Russia to Iran to Syria to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And recovery is unprecedentedly bad. So what do you do? You say anyone who criticizes us is a racist. It’s become a joke among young people. You go to a campus where this kind of political correctness reins, and some young person will say ‘looks like it’s going to rain’. The person listening says, ‘you’re a racist’. I mean it’s so inappropriate. The constant implication of this, I think, is becoming a national mirth.”

    Indeed, in the span of less than a week, three leading Democrats have accused the right of racism:

    The race card, unfortunately, is the only play liberal Democrats have left. The economy is no where near what Obama promised it would be after passing the infamous stimulus. Obamacare is reeking havoc on Americans on a daily basis. And Obama’s foreign policy is an international embarrassment.

    Playing the race card with such frequency does nothing to move America beyond the racial devisions that still exist. But Democrats don’t care about healing America. Nancy Pelosi, Eric Holder, Steve Israel, and the Democratic Party only care about winning the next election.
