What are, "crime, welfare, the President's economic an governing philosophy, birth certificates (even when joking)?" Among many, many others, I'm sure. MSNBC's Toure helpfully informs us that a) only Republicans can be accused of racism dog whistles, and b) pretty much anything members of the GOP say that can be even remotely construed as putting a minority member of society in a less than glorious light is de-facto racism.
So if you're a Democrat, like Sen. Harry Reid, you can describe Obama complimentarily as "light-skinned" with "no Negro dialect" and you're safe. If you're a Republican, like Mitt Romney, and you express concern that work requirements put in place during Clinton-era welfare reform are being softened, you're the equivalent of Bull Connor aiming firehoses. And the final judge on this is a far-left progressive on MSNBC
