Yahoo News: Americans are "Secretly Racist" Against the President
Pundit Press ^ | 6/11/12 | Aurelius

Posted on 06/11/2012 4:20:12 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

There is dumb and there is dumb. I consider racism to be a disgusting form of mental cowardice, where you paint an entire race or nationality as one way or another. Facts do not sway racists and they simply label people with a large brush stroke.

Thus, the irony is incredibly deep with Yahoo's frontpage story today, in which it declares Americans "secretly racist" based on their... search engine entries. Specifically, Yahoo contests that Americans are particularly racist toward President Obama.

The fact that Mr. Obama was elected in 2008 does not even truly enter into the discussion; nope, we are racists all, apparently including those who voted for him. Yahoo does try to explain away some of their ridiculous findings, but their headline gets straight to what they are talking about: "Are Americans secretly racist? Yes:"

...Doing everything they possibly can for the administration, Yahoo even goes as far as saying that the 41% of the vote Keith Judd received in the West Virginia primary against Obama was entirely from racism. Nowhere in the article is it even mentioned that he is a democrat.

Looks like the new talking points are out. Criticism of Obama is reaching excessive levels and too much of it is coming from the left.

The race card is all they have. They think if they scream loud enough, it might work.

Calling America racist is a bigotted, broad-brush, racist, narrow-minded statement.
Doncha just love irony?

Before Obama was elected I didn’t have a racist bone in my body....and I still don’t.....but my attitude toward some blacks has changed

God is not a respecter of color and neither I am I....

I can tell you now I often find myself just a little sick of black Americans thinking because we have a black president they think they can get away with anything....because of their skin color....

If that makes me a racist... So be it....I don’t care anymore...

Sure. I'm openly racist against the President: I clearly hate white people.

He not only knows how to swim, but he body surfs in the ocean. Wears saddle shoes with shorts at the golf course. I saw pictures of him skiing Aspen. Even his dog is a 'white' dog. Can't get a whole lot whiter than that.

He's as white as a styrofoam cup of white rice next to a glass of milk and a mayonnaise sandwich on Wonder bread with the crusts cut off sitting on a paper plate outside in a snowstorm.

Truth is, I'd vote against Obama just to get rid of Attorney General Eric Holder -- never mind the teetering pile of other garbage that Obama has inflicted upon the USA. That alone is enough reason for me. Racist, schmacist.

Yep, I’m now a racist, too. I didn’t used to be, but since obama soiled the White House, I’ve become one, thanks to him.

So, if you hate 0bama you’re a racist? Well, count me in - and I don’t have such a high opinion of his hosebag momma, either. Does that make me racist against whites too, or can you be racist against whites?

I consider calling a group of people “racist” when you know nothing about them, at least one quantum worse than simply being a racist. The fact is that we all have the perfect right to be racists. And many people have ample justification for their views. Plenty more than libs have for their views.

Yahoo News: Americans are "Secretly Racist" Against the President

Yahoo is RACIST with that statement. They are implying that only a dumb black man can bring this nation's economy to where it is today.

ANY idiot can do that... this one just happens to be black. It's not the race... it's the party stupid.

Let’s play along and assume that, yes, all Americans are secretly racist.

After election by secret racists, who declined to vet his qualifications for office, Mr. Obama has not performed well as President. He has demonstrated poor executive and leadership abilities; he has based his policies on debunked far-Left ideology that most Americans abhor; he understands neither economics nor business, with devastating effect; he has mocked the recovery by diverting resources to gross corruption with political cronies; he has leaked national security secrets for political gain; he has hidden massive unemployement behind manipulated statistics; he has undermined the Constitution to justify political objectives; he lacks candor and transparency; he has no clue as to how to work with Congress; and, he is disengaged from the real work of being President and from the real problems facing most of the nation.

Now, imagine an America without racists, secret or overt, or imagine Obama as the whitest man who ever lived. Does that change Obama’s performance as President? Or does it just change the subject?

As I understand it, we have a sacred secret ballot and can vote/not vote for someone based on any reason or no reason at all. Or did that change recently?

Yahoo is the worst news source in the world. It is seriously terrible. The editorial board is all left wing wackjobs, and every headline is crafted to give as much praise or support to the left as possible.

I can agree 100% with that. I have always been racist against the REDS; Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, the Obama’s, the Fonda’s, Putin, you could probably lump Hitler and Mussolini in there to. They were all socialist scum of one flavor or another, no difference to me.

I’m okay with “racism.” It seems to be okay with Holder and friends.

Of course “I don’t think that word (racism) means what you think it means.”
