Jonathan Chait: Obama’s ‘Black Dialect’ Appeals to Blacks

Jonathan Chait, who competes with Chris (“tingles”) Matthews to see which one gives Obama better fellatio, has declared that Obama’s anti-business tripe, “You didn’t build that, somebody else did”, resonates with his audience because he spoke in a “black dialect”.  Maybe that’s why there was an “amen chorus” on hand for the speech.

Mitt Romney’s plan of blatantly lying about President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech is clearly drawing blood. But what makes the attack work so well is not so much the lie itself but the broader subtext of it.

……The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans.

Soft spoken…reasonable…   Really??  The same “soft-spoken” thug who told supporters to confront opponents:  “Argue with them and get in their face.”

This is a 180 degree turnaround from Harry Reid’s critique of   “light skinned” and “with no Negro dialect”.  

The Left sure gets away with a lot of racial epithets, comments, and even violence.  Arkansas Democrat State Senator Gene Jeffress’ “nigger babies” anecdote, Al Sharpton’s anti-Semitism and race card flinging, the SEIU telling blacks they’re persuadable, and the level of hate and physical assaults leveled at black Tea Party conservatives, is regularly ignored and in some cases, excused by the leftwing media. 

Hypocritical malfeasance.  That’s the core of its entire political identity.
