I guess it’s Conservative Bionic Commando Week around here, because Greg Gutfeld is on a roll. It turns out that when liberals aren’t trying to paint an entire political party as deranged, violent cable guys for five bucks, they’re going back to the racism well.

Dear Liberals: We can hate the Nanny State and think Usher is smooth at the same time. Nobody cares about the race card anymore. It's over. Move on.

In short, at any large gathering of conservatives a reporter will show up and claim someone screamed the word that shan’t be said. Actually, I’d say it innocuously to prove a point, but the NAACP killed and buried it long ago (Unless it’s possible racist conservatives exhumed it, breathed new life into it, and now zombie racial epithets are rearing their ugly heads at Tea Party rallies). Or maybe liberal LA Times columnist David Ehrenstein has been showing up at Tea Party rallies incognito? Who knows.

Can you imagine if “Hip-Hop intellectual” Mark Lamont Hill was on his way to an Obamacare after party and someone threw eggs at his bus? Or maybe he rides a hip-hop train with Quad City DJ’s as conductors? Either way, there would be hell to pay. Without a doubt, Mars Attacks! stunt-double Al Sharpton would recall the non-existent eggs as feces (or maybe eggs with feces inside them because that’s the sort of thing conservatives can concoct at will?) thrown by a “racist” cop. And when the whole thing turned out to be a farce…silence.

But back to Gutfeld’s point, which is to ignore them and stick to the issues by asking everyone you know:

1. How could adding 32 million people to the health rolls SAVE us money?
2. How is hiring 14,000 new IRS Agents to enforce this NOT an expansion of government?
3. How can you be considered a “child” for the sake of health care until you are 26 years old?
4. How is forcing everyone to buy something constitutional?
5. How could there be no tort reform in this?

The only way the race card works is if you allow it to work (just as zombie-racial epithets only work when the person being insulted gives a word the power to control their life). The vast majority of Americans are not racists and are through allowing liberal race-hustlers to put them on the defensive for what’s largely a non-issue in 2010 America. I’m sorry, but I refuse to believe the random racist loser we all encounter has any power to significantly impact the trajectory of the average black person’s life.

The American people know in their gut that this bill is a dud. Now it’s up to us to articulate the reasons why. We have a responsibility to not get sidetracked by scare tactics and race games. And if we stay focused we can fix this mistake come November, take back control of Congress, and say, “Daddy’s Home.”

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m late for a meeting with “hip-hop intellectual” Mark Lamont Hill’s graduate level class on how to Bust a Move.
