No, really. That’s the latest entry in the Handbook of Racial Code Words. If you thought the Left was done self-parodying themselves, boy, were you wrong! We thought they may have stopped at “peanut butter” or “bread basket” or “kitchen cabinet” or “chair,” for goodness sake. But, no. Now the mere mention of his five boys by Mitt Romney during the debate in Denver? Totally a dog whistle and “sly” racism.
Once again, Twitter users were prescient and predicted just such lapdog media buffoonery.

@RBPundit and of course, Romney was racist when he drew the analogy between O lying and his sons. In racial code, he was calling O "a boy"

And, the predictions came true, once again. Rachel Maddow was the first to don the unhinged desperation cap.
Congrats to Rachel @Maddow who found the racist dog whistle. Romney referring to his sons was equivalent to treating Obama as a lesser.

But, it wasn’t just Rachel Maddow. Piers Morgan evidently heard the “dog whistle” that only racist lefties can hear.
@PiersTonight did not like the racist tinge when Romney tried to belittle the President by telling us that he had five boys

As did MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
Did Mitt Romney just compare the President to one of his "boys" ?
— Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) October 4, 2012
He’s uncomfortable calling our fallen troops “heroes.” But he’s totally fine with hurling vile accusations of racism!
He's so racist and offensive and doesn't even realize it RT @chrislhayes Did Mitt Romney just compare the President to one of his "boys" ?

Next came radio host Thom Hartmann.
Thom Hartmann finds Mitt Romney's boys lie story highly suspect. I have to say, I found it pretty awful, as well.

Sigh. Look, lefties: If you automatically think of Obama when you hear the word boy, you are the racist.
And a writer at Harper’s Magazine.

More from The Examiner:
Mitt Romney “slyly” proved he’s a racist last night while describing his tax plan. Did you notice? No? Anyone? Harper’s Magazine’s Kevin Baker embarrassed himself in accusing Romney of trying to lock down his allegedly-racist base during last night’s debate.
“[Obama]didn’t show a spark of anger, even when Romney slyly found a way to call him a boy, comparing Obama’s statements to the sorts of childish lies his ‘five boys’ used to tell,” Baker laments today. “How the right’s hard-core racists must have howled at that! Mitt, at long last, has secured his base.”
Sly racism! That wily Mitt Romney! He probably hatched a nefarious plan decades ago to have five sons so that one day he could, you know, talk about them. But not as a father or anything. For sly code purposes only!
Imaginary dog whistle? Or dog whistle that only true racists, like those on the Left, can hear? We think they doth project too much. Also, all that Kool-Aid drinking has made them, you know, insane.
