The Left needs a new motto. Might we suggest “the boys who cried dog whistle?” Because, here they go again. Members of the media breathlessly tweeted Josh Romney’s remarks when introducing his father today.

Then came some editorializing with pearl-clutching “oohs.”

What context? Why isn’t it a wise choice of words? It’s true. President Obama is the Stompy Foot in Chief.

Oh, of course! Racist. Media lapdogs recently offered a new term for entry into the Handbook of Racial Code Words: Romney’s sons. You see, when Mitt Romney joked during the debate, “Look, I’ve got five boys.  I’m used to people saying something that’s not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping I’ll believe it,” that was totally “sly racism.” Because, boys. Or something. It’s funny that liberals are the only people who hear a racist-y “boy” any time they look at President Obama.

Dog whistle, drink! Get out your decoder rings!

Media Matters’ Oliver Willis gets in on the decoding ring action.

As does Goldie Taylor, who was recently enraged by Governor Romney’s taxes. Because he paid too much.

Boy, again! Drink! Or don’t; y’all will get faced if you drink every time the Left tosses out the race card. Goldie then tries to paint it as also “out of touch” while trying to appear sane by pretending to take back her race card toss. Too late, toots. You can’t plant the seed then be all “well, I’m totally fair and stuff.”

Oh, really? Then why your race card-y pearl clutching over John Sununu? The shrieks of racism continue.

And a vile twist.

Disgusting. And here is some typical class warfare nonsense.

Wow. How tired and lame.

Bingo. It is all they have. They certainly can’t run on the obstinate child’s record now, can they?

  • TroyGates

    So only black boys are “obstinate” children? I am so confused by all these racism code words.

    • ZoriahShepard

      Exactly. And they continue to accuse us being racist. It’s quite maddening.

      • vetgal1970

        I have a list in progress, but every time I think I’m done they add a new one. Like ‘the’, and ‘apartment’, and now ‘boy’. I think I better add ‘obstinate’, just in case.

    Navigating the language when describing this man is nearly impossible…which is the goal, of course.

  • SAndrews

    So if the comparison is racist does that mean that Romney’s sons are claiming to be black? I’m getting dizzy from all of this spin.

    First Mitt got inside Obama’s head and now the family gets into the rest of the left wing extremists coconuts . Keep pulling that race card from the bottom of the deck libs. It’s got as much cache as S&H Green Stamps now. So keep whipping it on out!

    Anyone with children could relate to Romney’s quip about having kids tell you things over and over, hoping you’ll finally believe them.

    And, Obama is more than obstinate, he’s petulant, too. if he’d spent more time debating and less time pouting last Wednesday he might have not looked like an idiot standing there blubbering behind that podium. Not very Presidential, Mr. O.

  • Liberal Hater

    The left is so intellectually bankrupt it can’t see the joke it has made racism. It’s a shame, because when it’s actually happening it needs to be stopped. But these putzes just make the word mean nothing. Pathetic.

  • carla5731

    Because there aren’t any white children. We’re all born as grownups.

  • gekkobear

    I’m confused…

    Wait, “Childish” is racist because white people are never “childish” and only minorities are “childish” so calling someone “childish” is a clear call to race… right?

    NO? AND what I just said was racist? But I was agreeing with you.

    So white people can be “childish” and there is no racial component to “Childish”?

    No? Oh, that’s the “dog whistle” and if I don’t buy THAT I’m also racist.

    So either I do buy this, and I’m racist, or I don’t buy this, and I’m racist.

    Well, I think I’ve got it. 100% of everyone everywhere is now racist. No longer confused… but I’m not sure how this helps anything.

  • http://twitter.com/AmyLSonger Amy Songer

    What race are they talking about? The child race? Adult race? What’s that word again you use to refer to your male child? Isnt it BOY? I am sorry that word has been used to belittle people but that doesn’t mean every utterance of the word is racially motivated.

    i swear they are getting crazier everyday.

    • Pater Tempus

      Just so you can say you’ve learned something today, Cody….the word for a child that happens to be male is “boy”. Calling an adult male, specifically a black man, boy was a tactic used by racists as a sign of disrespect.
      You want to call Obama “obstinate”, fine. He’s certainly no more or less so than Mr. 47%…….but to call him “child” is a sign of racist disrespect.

      • DeeDeeTX

        Anyone who’s acting in an immature fashion is called a child. To read racism into that is a stretch.

        When a person acts taking up the negative attributes of a child, that person is childish!

        It has been that way for at least the last 90yrs! I know. I LIVED DURING THIS SPAN OF TIME!

        Unlike “boy” there never was a bigoted put down involved: it was strickly behavor based.

        I understand the Progressive urge to censorship that drives this foolishness. You don’t believe you can help yourselves!

        Like Margret Sanger, YOU see these attributes in the Mud People, so the other must see it too! And unlike you, who as salt-of-the-Earth, only want to herd the Mud Peoples — for their own good, of course — conservatives don’t care about them so whatever they say must be racist!

        We understand.

    When the Left hears the words “obstinate child” or “lazy” they immediately think of black people. Obviously, because they staunchly believe black folks are childish, obstinate and lazy …. they feel happily obliged to try and control them, what they think and who they vote for w/o the slightest hint of shame or remorse …. absolutely disgraceful!

    What concerns me is how the term racist is being overused until it’s meaningless. It’s a real issue; yet, it will become a joke at the rate they throw the term around.

    • SineWaveII

      Very true, And then what happens in the future if real racism rears its ugly head? Everybody will yawn and say “yeah sure, sure.”.

      • John Fowler

        I think it might be unidentifiable by then. People say Islamophobia is racist now, when it has nothing to do with race. Using the term incorrectly does a disservice to people that have actually endured egregious treatment based on race, as opposed to someone whom has merely not gotten their way and seeks to silence critics by portraying themselves as a victim of an imagined slight.

    They have all of these code words that make us “white folks” racist, yet the blacks drop “nigga” bombs left and right.

  • http://twitter.com/mckalarose mckalarose

    I am actually beginning to enjoy all of these cries of racism coming from the left. Every time they have to dig a little deeper for a new code word they expose themselves for the fools they are. Let’s see, we have: Chicago, golf, angry, welfare, birth certificate, work requirement, chair, jobs, medicare, peanut butter sandwiches, and now obstinate children. I would be appalled if only I could stop laughing.
