Race War?
Commentary Magazine ^ | September 2, 2008 | Abe Greenwald

Posted on 09/02/2008 1:42:48 PM PDT by Jbny

At the Philadelphia Daily News, Fatimah Ali warns:

If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness - and hopelessness!

Sounds like a pretty enfeebled bunch of warriors to me. Deflated, depressed, homeless, and hopeless. What makes Ali so sure this gloomy mob will be able to rally themselves and rise up against the rest of the country? Oh yeah, that’s right: hope.

If that’s what they truly want.....bring it on but this time, we shouldn’t rebuild for them and the jails will be full of them.

I agree that if Obambi loses, all the “African hyphen Americans” and lefty anarchists will riot, loot, burn, assault, etc. Their usual behavior when they don’t get their way.

It will be interesting if the pre-election polls put Obama slightly ahead of McCain, then McCain wins by a narrow margin (ala the Wilder effect). I can see some serious violence taking place around the country. I would definitely avoid minority areas in the months after the election. The left is already unhinged after 2000 and 2004. A presidential three-peat could push them off a cliff...could be interesting.

So, if John McCain loses, will there still be a race war?

They say they will riot if he loses and they say they will have power riots if he wins. Dang, sounds like we are s**t out of luck. Glad we are still allowed to own guns.

I can guarantee you this:

If John McCain wins, there won’t be a metropolitan area in the country that doesn’t see some sort of riot. Some cities will see full-fledged Rodney King “drag Reginald Denny out of the truck” riots and other cities will see small groups of disenfranchised black youths running amok, engaging in random beatings and smashing in car windows.

It *will* happen. Mark my words. And Barack Obama will pull the “can’t we all just get along” thing while intimating that the election was really stolen - which will just add fuel to the fire.

It’s it amazing how the guy who is supposed to mark the end of racism will actually be responsible for generating one of the worst racial divides in this country’s history?

Just a guess, but an educated one.

If history is any indicator, riots and race *anything* usually results in them looting and burning their own sh*t to the ground. I say let them; and no funds to help rebuild after the fact either.

"If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness - and hopelessness!"

I believe that's more or less the world we will have if the incompetence of Obama/Biden combine with the incompetence of Pelosi + Reid. Moreover, with these sorts of threats, why would America, especially middle and upper class America, want anything to do with someone like Fatimah Ali whom Obama and Biden would bring with them to the White House? I hope the threats keeps on coming. Liberal extortion is so compelling.

Booker T. Washington wrote about way back in 1911:
“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

also,

No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts.

I agree and it will be because of the race-hucksters like this writer fomenting a rabid and virulent reaction to the loss. Creating such a bleak picture of the U.S. and their saviour Obama can be the only one to save them from this ruinous country. We can see what the cult of personality does.

Makes it sound like McCain is running against someone like Mugabe. And in a sense, he probably is, given the violent, anti social tendencies of some of his “hopeful” supporters.

What Fatimah really means is that terrorists will be ticked off if we elect someone who will continue the war on terror instead of pulling back all the troops and trying to make nice with the terrorists.

There is not going to be a race/class war. Maybe a few race riots, but they'll riot in their own neighborhoods, realize how stupid they are being, and stop.

I’ve been predicting THIS one ever since old BO won the nomination.

THERE WILL BE BLOOD and they will make the post-MLK killing riots look like a warm-up exercise.

I vividly remember the 1968 Hough riots in Cleveland. My pregnant wife’s Ob/Gyn’s office was in the University Circle/Western Reserve area and I recall seeing jeeps with NG troops manning .50 cal MGs at every intersection.

A standout moment was when a TV reporter stuck a mike and camera in the face of a sweet old black resident and asked her what she thought about what was going on. She looked up the street to the gang of thugs trashing and burning some cars and softly remarked “I think those ni**ers are gonna get some of us black folks killed.”

I’m glad she’s no longer here to see what their behavior will bring THIS time should BO lose.

but they'll riot in their own neighborhoods

That's the key right there. When you talk about those ignorant enough to take to the streets to grab any club-like object and attack anything that looks different, you're talking about a small group of people who get up around noon (no need for a job), anxiously await their "entitlements" (extorted from those who do work for a living), and as a corollary don't have the means or foresight to travel further than the two-block radius they spend their life in.

That means the damage will be localized, and for the most part done to their own already-neglected property. Unfortunately there will be innocents caught in the cross fire...we can only hope Heller brings his guns to DC in time. Chicago's 2A infringements won't be struck down in time, so hopefully the thugs will be too enraged to hop an El train turnstile and spread their destruction past their own blocks.

She should be ashamed to even suggest something as ugly as that but...if that’s what she is advocating...she should be very careful. People are sick and tired of all this kind of hate talk and have had enough on BOTH sides. I think this person is all talk and no substance.

And, BTW, the next time you folks dare threaten warfare over hurt feelings, re-think your petulance and think clearly how your legacies would end.....very abruptly.

That defines both Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to a "T".

They should reflect on the fact that, so far, only one side is shooting, killing, raping, and murdering. Do they want to push it so that it becomes a two-sided shooting war? Well, they can be my guest.

Barack Obama's forebears were slaveholders.

One of Obama's great-great-great-great grandfathers, George Washington Overall, owned two slaves who were recorded in the 1850 Census in Nelson County, Ky. The same records show that one of Obama's great-great-great-great-great-grandmothers, Mary Duvall, also owned two slaves.
