Throughout the presidency of Obama there have been cries of racist aimed at people who raise any objection to his policies.
Throughout Julia Gillard’s time as prime minister there have been cries of sexist aimed at people who raise any objection to her policies.
So can our friends on the Left please tell us how we can object to their policies without the name calling?
The race and gender cards have been popular with the Left and they are using it more.
In the past those cards could stifle debate. Many people don’t like being accused of objectionable behaviour such as racism and sexism so often the cry of it was enough to make people drop a subject.
But the cards were overplayed and the more ludicrous it got the more people were starting to respond with their own simple question of ‘how’.
That’s when many saw through the cards, more and more people are openly calling people out who accuse them of racism or sexism.
The biggest problem with the Lefts ‘cry wolf’ approach is it can make it difficult for people who are facing genuine racial and gender discrimination to be taken seriously. Real discrimination is more easily dismissed with a simple comparison to the excuses being made by people who should know better.
If the objections aimed at Obama and Gillard are really only based on race and gender then they should rise above such taunts. The facts would prove such objections wrong.
But we know the only thing that rises with these two is debt, unemployment and misery. The facts have proved the objections aimed at Obama and Gillard are based on what they are doing to the US and Australia.
