“Mark Steyn: Racist dog whistles and the men who hear them”

  “And so it goes with American racism: The less there is, the more extravagantly the racism-awareness lobby patrols its beat. The Walmart
carding clerks of the media are ever more alert to those who “appear to be” racist. On MSNBC,
Chris Matthews declared this week that Republicans use “Chicago” as a racist code word. Not to be outdone, his colleague Lawrence
O’Donnell pronounced “golf” a racist code word. When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell
observed that Obama was “working to earn a spot on the PGA tour,” O’Donnell brilliantly perceived that subliminally associating Obama
with golf is racist, because the word “golf” is subliminally associated with “Tiger Woods,” and
the word “Tiger” is not-so-subliminally associated with cocktail waitress Jamie Grubbs,
nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel, lingerie model Jamie Jungers, former porn star Holly Sampson,
etc, etc. So by using the word “golf” you’re sending a racist dog whistle that Obama is a sex addict who reverses over fire hydrants. “
