Racism: The Atom Bomb of Leftist Discourse

Though not the post's point, very well put:

The invocation of racism is a sort of atom bomb of leftist discourse: it shuts down any debate that previously existed, and exiles the accused into a limbo of the discredited. This, of course, is why it is done so readily. Now, let's state up front that this is often well deserved -- and let's acknowledge that it just as often is not.

I find it not deserved much more often than it is, though he's encountered right-wing racism I haven't. And perhaps the cases that catch my attention are particularly ridiculous.
