Skip to comments.Breeze Perspectives: Webb is a racist
Posted on 10/09/2006 7:20:43 PM PDT by freespirited
According to the Washington Post last week, a former acquaintance of Democratic Senate candidate James Webb came out saying that while Webb was a freshman at the University of Southern California in the early 1960s, he and members of his ROTC unit would hop into their cars, and would go down to Watts (a black neighborhood) they would take the rifles down there. They would call them (the n-word), point the rifles at them, pull the triggers and then drive off laughing. One night, some guys caught them and beat them. And that was the end of that.
Imagine for a moment: if this story was about Senator George Allen, you know it would be front-page news. Allens macaca gaffe earned him 10 Washington Post front-page articles. However, to find out about Webb doing what he did, you have to go to the Posts B-section and read through the first nine paragraphs of that article. Can someone please show me substantial evidence that George Allen did anything even close to this in severity? Supposedly racist Allen has been getting flack for years for keeping a Confederate flag in his home. There is a major difference between embracing Southern heritage by owning a flag and going around pointing guns at people to intimidate them because they are black.
Keep in mind this is the same James Webb who wrote a book, Fields of Fire, which is sprinkled with the n-word throughout. Keep in mind this is the same James Webb who is running against a man who has served in public office 25 years without anyone accusing him of using the n-word until now. Keep in mind this is the same James Webb who, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, portrayed Democratic primary opponent Harris Miller as a large-nosed Jew with money spilling out of his pockets. Keep in mind this is the same James Webb who received 83,298 votes in the Democratic Senate primary. I, for one, voted for Harris Miller for my own, selfishly Republican reasons. I ask you Democrats, does Jim Webb really stand for your values? If an unapologetic George Allen had gone around in a black neighborhood pointing a rifle at people because of the color of their skin, then he would not get my vote.
According to the Washington Post, Webb campaign spokeswoman Kristian Denny Todd said of the Allen campaign, They are pathetic individuals. They are beneath it. They are slime. Here we are trying to talk about the issues. They are completely and totally desperate. Is the Webb campaign really talking about the issues as his spokeswoman said? Does anyone really know where Webb stands on anything except that he is critical of the Bush administration and is opposed to the war in Iraq? Is George Allen really that desperate?
The fact of the matter is that George Allen will win by a substantial margin Nov. 7. The Webb campaign knows they are not going to win on the issues. That is why they are not talking about the issues. What really is going on is a character assassination on behalf of national Democrats to ruin Allens chances for the presidency. Unfortunately, they have succeeded. This campaign season has ruined the reputation of a man who otherwise would have been the 2008 Republican presidential nominee and if elected, an outstanding president.
Anthony Riedel is a senior communications major who congratulates Allen for asking the campaigns and Virginia Monday night to get back to the issues.
George Allen ping
Ironic isn't it. The MSM gives Webb a passe and crucifies Allen. This is the best example of bias as of this moment.
But some things never change. The MSM always has to go over the top. The Post's bashing of Allen went too far and Virginians are pissed. The backlash will sink Webb.
"Webb campaign spokeswoman Kristian Denny Todd said of the Allen campaign, They are pathetic individuals. They are beneath it. They are slime. Here we are trying to talk about the issues. They are completely and totally desperate.
Sounds like someone has a little problem with turnabout. And I guess "trying to talk about the issues" means calling your opponents "slime". Don't worry there, Kristian, you can be the world's biggest hypocrite without worry. The MSM will keep you and Webb's secret from the voters.
"They are much, much better than they have ever been in my lifetime. As a personal opinion, I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us. I think we can all profit by our mistakes. I think we have reached a new plateau. And, I think it is going to keep going upward.- the understanding and race relations.
"I think I just think we talk so much about it we create somewhat of an illusion uh uh I think we should try to have good will. My old Mom told me, 'Robert, you can't go to heaven if you hate anybody.' We practice that."
And then came the bombshell. His tone of voice changed and he said firmly,
"There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time it you want to use that word. We all we all just need to work together to make our country a better country.
"I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."
The campaign run by the Washington Post to trash Senator Allen is beyond disgusting.

Get the picture?
I remember seeing a newbie signing up and posting something exactly like this. Of course, that could be an urban legend.

>I remember hearing a story like this about college kids I knew back in the 60s. EXACTLY like this. Which makes me think this might be an urban legend.<
Gee, and you could be a Democrat on the Webb payroll.
Back under the bridge with you, troll!
Webb is more than a simple BS racist, though. He's a total perv. Below is a direct quote from his book, LOST SOLDIERS:
"A shirtless man walked toward them along a mud pathway. His muscles were young and hard but his face devastated with wrinkles. His eyes were so red that they appeared to be burned by fire. A naked boy ran happily toward him from a little plot of dirt. THE MAN GRABBED HIS YOUNG SON IN HIS ARMS, TURNED HIM UPSIDE DOWN, AND PUT THE BOY'S PENIS IS HIS MOUTH." (Sorry to shout, but I capped it for emphasis - it's on page 333)
Dudes, that stuff is sick and perverted! Even Clinton stuck to women...And Dimocrats in VA are even thinking of voting for Webb? He sounds like a NAMBLA member..a perv who would be better suited to SF than to VA or anywhere!
I told my daughter about this n-word flap. She's in middle school, and she looked at me funny. I said I was sorry I mentioned it. she said it didn't shock her, I asked where she ever heard that word in today's enlightened age.
She said the blacks and hispanics use the term all the time, directed at whites in her school. She said she had been called the n-word over 5 times already this year.
Of course, if anybody of the white kids use it back, they will be expelled.
