In which someone much smarter than me agrees

A couple of weeks ago I commented on why it’s unhelpful to throw out accusations of racism in political discussion.

Charles Krauthammer last night, on the increase of such accusations:

You know, the accusation of racism is a sign of desperation by people who know they are losing the national debate, and they want to hurl the ultimate charge in American politics.

This is dealing from the bottom of the deck, and I agree that it is a disgusting tactic. It’s done as a way to end debate…

Accusations of racism are the last refuge of the liberal scoundrel.
