Olbermann: Chuck Norris saying ‘1,000 years of darkness’ is total dog whistle


Well, time for yet another section in the old Handbook of Racial Code Words! Like Clint Eastwood’s bit with a chair, Chuck Norris using the phrase “1,000 years of darkness” is also a dog whistle. That only racist leftists can hear.

Update: The sane on Twitter swiftly weigh in.

@KeithOlbermann Im not sure if you are a trying to be a comedian or not. You certainly are not a journalist. Only racist here is you. #msnbc

Hey, @KeithOlbermann, the point of a dog whistle is that only dogs can hear it. You should look in the mirror sometime. If you can stand it.

@KeithOlbermann You still take yourself seriously??? The rest of us don't. It's in your own soul that racism can be found. You should look.
