Everytime I turn around, the race card or feminist card is being played by someone in Hollywood. I really don't understand why Hollywood and the left are continually calling my human and her friends racist and anti-feminists. I decided I would do a little research and find out.
After Candi left for the day, I got out her laptop and begin to search for anything I could find on racism and politics. I found a lot of things mentioning racism and feminism by some woman named Janeane Garofalo. I have to say, she seems really weird and is actually very frightening. Then there was that actor named Morgan Freeman that was on CNN last week saying the TEA Party was racist and that Obama's presidency had made racism worse. The one thing I couldn't find was a clear explanation of WHY they think those things. Once again, I decided I would talk to my human and see if she could explain it to me.
I waited patiently all day. I watched the news, read a few blogs, checked out some pages that Candi has bookmarked on her computer, but I was really just killing time. Finally...I heard her car pull up outside. I rushed to the door to meet her with my tail wagging and anxious to get the discussion started.
"Shasta give me five minutes to makes myself some iced tea, take my shoes off and change my clothes. I promise that we'll talk as soon as I'm settled," she said as she came through the door. I was amazed...how did she know I was wanting to talk?
I patiently wait for five more minutes and when she finally sat down, I placed my head in her lap and asked, "I just don't understand why you and your friends are continually being called racist and other mean things. I tried to find out on the internet, but I kept pulling up this really scary looking woman. Can you please explain it to me?"
"Shasta, people resort to name calling and false accusations when they can't understand something. Ms. Garafolo is completely confused by any ethnicity choosing conservative values over liberal ideas. The fact that a woman would be conservative is such a frightening concept to her, she goes apoplectic. So, she gets on the radio or TV and starts making false accusations. She doesn't really know what the TEA Party is about because she's never been to one of our meetings or rallies. On top of that, she refuses to wear a bra and now her boobs are starting to hang out with her knees and she's really unhappy, " Candi stated with a smirk on her face.
"Ok, that is NOT answering my question," I said.
"I can't tell you why Shasta because I don't know why they say the things they do. They have no proof and what is worse, they treat anyone of color or women that don't feel the same way they do really bad. They think they understand why a white man would be a conservative, but for a woman or black man to be conservative...well, we've just left the plantation in their opinion."
"So, are people calling me racist then? Seriously, I'm a TEA Party dog, wouldn't their view make me a racist?"
"I honestly don't know, Shasta."
"Well, I can tell you that there is NO way I could ever be racist because dogs can't distinguish between colors like humans can. So, a black person looks pretty much the same as a white person with a tan to me. And as for women and men, all I know for certain about that, is that women pee sitting down and men do it standing up."
So, Ms. Garafolo and Mr. Freeman...you're opinions are irrelevant because you have NO idea what it means to be a Patriot in the first place. You have no idea that TRUE patriotism doesn't care what color your skin is or what your gender may be. All you know is that you want to put someone else down so you can feel important. Your slanderous accusations do nothing but make you look ridiculous, old and tired, and completely uninformed. I'm a TEA Party dog, and I'm telling you that YOU are the people creating a race and feminism issues. WE are more concerned with reducing the national debt and other important issues, rather than with what gender or color a person may be!
