One thing you gotta love about Teabaggers…they are charmingly literal.
The Daily Caller is no stranger to dog whistle racism; founded by libertarian conservative and Manchurian Candidate Tucker Carlson and Dick Cheney’s former advisor, the Caller’s done a pretty consistent job of sending high-pitched invocations directly into the three collective brain cells of its readers. Now, though, Carlson’s decided to take a more literal spin on the whole “dog whistle” thing.
In a report posted on August 19th, The Daily Caller rolled over and showed us its adorable, fuzzy belly with a report on the Obamas’ newest puppy, Sunny. Prepare to guess the direction the Caller went with this one:
Like Bo, Sunny is a Portugese Water Dog; unlike Bo, this racist dog doesn’t even have the common decency to be half white. Nevermind being ALL white — a fact that the Caller just happened to include as the last line in the article:
“The Obamas do not have any white dogs.”
It’s hard to misunderstand that statement: Obama’s lack of albino canines is clearly a statement of support for radical Islam, expressed through the Black Panthers, and is an extollment of the African American entitlement society. The symbolism couldn’t be any clearer. Does Sunny pay taxes? No. He gets his meals free on the White House dime. He’s nothing but a lazy moocher; his lack of career motivation as a dog is all but tattooed on that lolling tongue and those puffy lips. Clearly, this is Mitt Romney’s 47 percent. And if that’s not an Afro, I’ve never damned seen one.
But the Caller’s point remains valid. Obama doesn’t have a white dog. Of course, neither did Bush. Or Clinton. Or the other Bush, or St. Reagan. Carter, Ford, Nixon…nope. So, racists, one and all. Matter of fact, the last president to have an all-white dog had not one, but two. President Johnson had this stunning beast in 1963:
But Blanco’s name was clearly Mexican, so that might not count. And he was a border collie. A BORDER Collie, for God’s sake.
Fortunately, Johnson was given Yuki …
…in 1966 by his daughter Luci Nugent. Who (one assumes by name alone) could only have been the protector of the White Race in Northern Michigan.
Then again, Yuki might just have been a ploy to secure white sympathies after 1965, when Johnson arrested four good ol boy Klansmen for the murder of Violet Liuzzo, and passed the now-unnecessary Voting Rights Act.
Now, there’s a dog whistle for you.
