racism sign

As Twitchy reported earlier today, Colin Powell (who endorsed Barack Obama in part based on race) attacked the GOP as a bunch of raaaaaaaacists for using raaaaaaaaacist “code words” to appeal to raaaaaaaaacist voters.

Obviously, none of us wants to be branded a racist. You already know not to say the obvious epithets.  But you’re probably wondering what “code words” Powell considers unacceptable.

Worry not. Thanks to the trending hashtag #ColinPowellCodeWords you can now access a ready-made list of subtly racist code words that must not be uttered.

Twitter user @GayPatriot got the ball rolling:

And with that, conservatives were off and running:

    Was he ever a conservative, or did he just pretend?
    Reagan, Bush 1 ,and Bush 2 elevated this man, and look what is in his head.
    He chose race over competence.

      And that is what I call true “racism” voting for a person’s color, not experience or honor. Colin Powell=fraudster.

      Powell was an affirmative action promoted butt kisser and politician on active duty, not a leader of men. I was active duty AF at the same time as Powell. Based purely on ability and performance, he would have retired at O5/O6, not O10 4 star.

    I think whenever liberals use the terms ‘Southern’ or ‘redneck’, they are being racist.

    Colin Powell is not a Republican, because if he were a true Republican, he could have never supported Obama, our most radical and divisive President. Seams to me, Powell voted for Obama, because they are both black. Most black conservatives, would have not voted for Obama. I am tired of hearing his opinion about the GOP, he needs to stop going on Sunday morning programs to represent the GOP. He is a RINO !

      He is a democrat plant. RINOs at least pretend to be Republicans, even if they are squishy on some issues.

    Colin Powell destroyed all the respect I had for him in 08 when he indorsed Obama, He locked it away for ever when he came back in 2012 and stated to let the man finish what he started. Proving to me he is a true Socialist Racist Period.

    What was it he said earlier? “a dark vein of intolerance runs through the Republican party”. Methinks the laddie protesteth too much!
    When he was a general, I quite admired him, but once he became a Democrat politician, not so much. Frankly, Bush made a mistake- from his bad attitude, Powell is looking like “an affirmative action hire gone wrong” as a leftist journalist once said of Michael Steele.
    Comparison: Allen West is an officer who kept his principles, while Colin Powell is a brazen opportunist.
    My intolerance only extends to politicians without principles, and the general seems to fall not that category.

      Wait…, did Powell say “dark”? Can he do that?

    Down in Cherokee, NC, there is a place where they have some black bears on display. PETA is unhappy about that, though the bears are pretty much in regular zoo conditions. The point here, is that PETA put on a protest this week. What has that to do with racism, you ask? Well, you’ll have to follow the link to the photo to believe it. Check the second sign from the left : http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2013301120043

    Apparently, displaying black bears is, well…, ‘racist’

    Don’t forget “I simply disagree with Obama’s policies” — you people are so racist you don’t even know how racist racist code words can be. Or how coded the racist code words can be. They are thick with innuendo so subtle that your white-thinking heads cannot possibly appreciate just how racist they is. Er, are.

    When the almighty, cleaner than clean, General Powell was in Viet Nam he was charged with investigating the My Lai Massacre. He came, he saw, he found nothing. So, “dumb ass” is a code word to beware of, at all costs. His combat record in Viet Nam includes willful covering up of the massacre of over 300 civilians. He omitted this in his autobiography, Powell is the product of the Nixon Affirmative Action Program and also the, “Peter Principal”.

  • EastValleyConservative

    The only thing wrong in this article is the phrase “nobody wants to be branded a racist…” While I prefer not to, I have no fear of it because it is usually brandished when an argument can’t be won, or in more likely cases, before the debate even starts because the prog knows they are working with false facts before they begin speaking.

  • CrossHugger

    Can we have a colinoscopy and just ignore him……he is a closet liberal

    • TexSizzle

      How about a Colinectomy?

  • Linda (Lou) Norris

    Did Powell get fooled by Obama, or did we get fooled by Powell? Or is really just about their both being black? One of those things must be true…sad, whatever is true.

    I have always respected Powell’s duty to country but he is soiling his image.

    If he feels more “in touch” with Democrats he needs to change party affiliation,

    Stop with the obvious bitterness and the thinly veiled racist remarks
    it’s very unbecoming to a man of his standing.

  • Wayne Lynch

    He graduated NYU with a “D” GPA only after dropping out of engineering with an “F”.
    Was receiving staff officer for the report on My Lai, which he attempted to circular file. It can be called a fair attempt..but the left would have crucified anyone else.
    Everyone he passed on his way to CJCOS graduated with honors. Where he advised GHWB that “train cars of body bags will be required for Desert Storm”..168 KIA.
    Addressed the U.N. telling them Iraq had WMD’s. Again the left would have eviscerated anyone else.
    Forbes lists his wealth at $72 million.

    All attained absent ANY competitive merit, by an embarrassing GOP condescension.
    Thrown over by Powell at the first hint of skin color the same hue as his.
    Now lecturing others regarding their racism.

  • michael s

    I thought a black Republican was congratulated and applauded on his/her independence,free thought. Just like Andrew Sullivan Chris Christie David Frum Sec of State Powell is being punsihed for not staying on the CONSERVATIVE PLANTATION.
