Costello: Fake Racism Satiates Left

If racism didn't exist, then liberals would have to invent it. And because genuine instances are so rare, liberals do just that. I have plenty of Democrat friends who, even though they know that their party's economic programs create misery, still vote straight Democratic tickets because they're convinced that only Democrats can solve racism. But if racism is so rampant, then why do Democrats have to make it up? Evidence of racism was so scarce in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin affair that they had to fabricate it. NBC News doctored Zimmerman's call to the police to make it sound as if it were Martin's skin color that raised his suspicions. Martin's hooded sweatshirt became a symbol of racism only because of an idiotic, irrelevant off-hand comment by Geraldo Rivera. And, of course, it was Barack Obama who put this all into motion by noting that, if he had a son, that son would look like Trayvon Martin. I'm just wondering: If Obama had twin sons, would they look anything like the two thugs accused of beating an 88-year-old World War II veteran to death in Spokane? Would they resemble the creeps in Oklahoma who murdered an Australian baseball player because they were bored?/Mike Costello, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Agree/disagree with Michael Costello?
