...there would've been riots in the streets.
Ok, maybe not riots in the streets, but there would've been shrill accusations of racism by the usual suspects had any Republican or conservative bashed a Michelle Obama pinata to bits with a baseball bat. But let Donna Dewitt, Democrat-supporting president of South Carolina's AFL/CIO, whack a pinata with the face of South Carolina's Indian-American governor, Nikki Haley, and the self-appointed protectors of minorities are deafeningly silent. Hmmmm. Are we supposed to believe that Donna Dewitt's hateful antics were just an expression of political disagreement with Gov. Haley? Would liberals accept such an explanation if a Republican or conservative bashed a Michelle Obama pinata? Of course not. And we conservatives and Republicans shouldn't accept such an explanation for Ms. Dewitt's shameful "fun". It's time we started calling progressives out on their racism and their hypocrisy. If they get it thrown back in their faces often enough maybe they'll be put on the defensive for a change and will be forced to retreat from their favorite political weapon: yelling 'raaaaaacist!" And that can only be a good thing for the country, especially for successful non-white Americans like Gov. Nikki Haley whose triumphs reveal how much America has overcome the poison of racism. It's high time progressives were made to see that.
