I’ve long accepted that any opposition to President Obama’s agenda is immediately labeled “racism.”

Now, when it comes to the shutdown, you had MSNBC calling those who pushed to defund Obamacare as “serious racism” as opposed to the “unserious” kind, I guess.

Anthea Butler, an Ivy League professor, blamed Republican racism for the government shutdown, according to the Daily Caller.

But how does one square that racism charge with the story that a Ku Klux Klan rally planned for Saturday at Gettysburg National Military Park has been canceled because of the government shutdown?

I’m confused. So am I racist if I oppose the government shut down when the government shutting down stopped a KKK rally? I just don’t know what to think anymore.
