Everyone sing along

Well, it’s finally happened, the insanity of progressivism, liberalism and political correctness has reached maximum saturation in our society. Case in point, MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry. In case you haven’t heard, this lunatic is accusing the movie “Star Wars” (read that again: “Star Wars”) of being racist. How so, you may ask?

Well, it seems that Ms. Perry thinks that a white man wearing a black costume (Darth Vader) and acting in an overly aggressive manner, puts black people in a negative context so ergo, it’s racist. Is there a special school, besides our institutions of higher indoctrination that these idiots go to, to become this stupid? Can you people even walk by a mirror without shouting racist? I think it’s time for you people to adopt this old ’60s song as your anthem. Let’s all sing along:

And, they’re coming to take me away ha-ha, they’re coming to take me away ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-ha to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time, and I’ll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats, and they’re coming to take me away ha haaa ... to the loony bin with all you can eat prescription drugs like Thorazine and lithium and electric shock and insulin, and they’re coming to take me away ha-ha; to the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds, and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes.
