Ralph Nader Digs a Hole

Posted by karmalily on November 8, 2008

Ralph Nader has long been one of my three political heroes (the other two being Senator Russ Feingold and Representative Dennis Kucinich), but tonight I think I need to find someone new to look up to. Someone who doesn’t refer to President-Elect Barack Obama as “Uncle Tom.”

Ralph Nader has done amazingly wonderful things for consumer safety, but give up dude. As one of the commentators (yes, I know it’s FOX News, but this actually is a relevant spot of news) say at the end of that clip, you’re done. Take your racist ass elsewhere.

In case you’re not sure of what “Uncle Tom” means, here’s the Wikipedia definition:

Uncle Tom is a pejorative for a black person who is perceived by others as behaving in a subservient manner to White American authority figures, or as seeking ingratiation with them by way of unnecessary accommodation.

    He said an Uncle Tom to the corporations. The corporations, no race involved.

    Besides, the race issue is dead. Obama killed it.
