Well, that's how you play the Political game in 21st Century America. The first one to call "racism" or "antisemitism" wins. I'm sure if Meade were to discuss Black issues in a way Glenn didn't like the "racism card" would've been thrown and its Meade who would've shown a "flash of fear".
Frankly, if people are stupid enough to be buffaloed in this way (as Americans have been for the past 50 years...or maybe always) - they get what they deserve. I can't blame AIPAC, the Black Caucus or anyone else from playing the victim or the "you're a racist/bigot/homophobe/sexist" card when morons think that's the worst thing in the world ever, ever. Honestly, I think some people would literally kill themselves rather than be labeled as (fill in the blank).
