Throughout this campaign, we have heard the steady cries of racism ... people say that the only reason the most liberal Senator ever to run for president a leftist Senator with a penchant for Marxist ideology could possibly lose this election is because he is black and people are racist. As we get closer to the election, these stories have exploded into the media.
Let's go down the list of the few we got just over the weekend!
We have foreign leaders (technically a former leader) like Fidel Castro saying that the only reason million of people will not vote for Barack Obama is because of "profound racism in the United States."
In South Carolina, we have vandals spray painting "Republican means slavery" on the door of the GOP campaign headquarters. Because, to the mind of an ignorant voter with a racial chip on his shoulder, being a Republican automatically makes you a racist because you don't want Barack Obama to be president.
Please remember the idiot Whoppi Goldberg when McCain appeared on The View. She asked McCain if he were elected would she become a slave again.
Here's Time Magazine proclaiming that the John McCain and Sarah Palin are using Obama's race to make him appear "anti-American." It couldn't possibly have anything to do with his view of this country, could it?
Then we have Frank Rich in the New York Times over the weekend. Frank Rich says, "From the start, there have always been two separate but equal questions about race in this election. Is there still enough racism in America to prevent a black man from being elected president no matter what? And, will Republicans play the race card? The jury is out on the first question until Nov. 4. But we now have the unambiguous answer to the second: Yes." So there you have it. Not surprising that The New York Times publishes a column proclaiming that it is the Republicans who are playing the race card, and if Obama loses, it is because Republicans have stirred the racist pot.
Remember also other charges of racism in this campaign:
The use of the word "skinny" in referring to Obama is racist.
Using the words "community organizer" is racist.
Saying Obama an ultra-leftist doesn't see America the same way a conservative would is racist.
Using his middle name is racist.
Just remember my friends: This is only the beginning. When Obama becomes our (czar) President any utterance of disapproval with any proposal he floats before the congress will, of course, be racist. It is going to be a fun four years.
Before we move on, I want to point you to one other part of this column by Frank Rich. He says, "Voters are looking for a leader who might help rescue them ..." I ask you this, how on earth are you expecting your president to save you? I've said this many times ... these federal elections should not be as important as we have allowed them to become. People should not vote for the person who they think will go to Washington and solve their problems!
The problems that you should be voting on should be those in your local community, maybe even your state. But this notion that you are electing a president so he can go to Washington and "rescue" you is absurd.
AND THEN THERE WAS THIS FROM JOHN LEWIS ...
Over the weekend we heard from Georgia Congressman John Lewis. He says that the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign reminds him of the 1960s when Governor George Wallace fostered a hateful atmosphere in Alabama. Lewis says that John McCain and Sarah Palin are "sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse."
Then the back peddling begins ... later on Saturday night, Lewis tried to say that he did not intend to compare McCain-Palin to George Wallace. Like hell and you know it. That's exactly what he wanted to do. Because any time that you can make Barack Obama appear to be the victim of his race, that makes Republicans, John McCain, Sarah Palin racists.
This is standard fare for John Lewis. I love the guy, really do. He's my congressman. But the fact is he is not exactly the brightest star in the firmament. He is a civil rights icon .. and his sole frame of reference on America, on the World, on economics, on social policy ... on virtually everything ... is race based.
A few years ago there was a relatively minor local race in the Atlanta area where a black candidate happened to be running against a white person. John Lewis actually taped (along with Atlanta's mayor Shirley Franklin and former UN Ambassador Andrew Young) a radio commercial which said that if the white guy won blacks would once again be attacked with water hoses and police dogs. Mindlessly moronic .. plainly stupid .. but sadly these things come out of the mouth of John Lewis all-to-often. He gets a pass in these parts though because of his courageous civil rights history.
Obama is a black hole. Not even true answers can escape his gravitational field.
Rut roh. I said “black hole”. I must be racist.
Boortz lost credibility with me this morning on FNC. He said he’d vote for John Lewis.
Just listening to Sarah Palin is racist.
Just being white in today's America is racist.
At least that is what I keep hearing.
Why does Boortz love that idiot? Lewis has been a gasbag for forty years.
If Obama wins, I dread the next four years. Everything, and I mean everything, will be filtered through the “racism” prism. This country will be PC’d to the max. And Blacks will be put into positions of power everywhere. Coming to a state near you. And believe me, the propensity for power tripping and paybacks on the part of Blacks once in power will be great. Hang onto your hats and enjoy the ride!
Nobody wants to admit this. Bill O’Reilly (yes, I know, he's not a conservative) keeps saying that he doesn't think that Obama is a racist. That is dangerous naivete. Jeramiah Wright is not an aberration, he is much closer to the norm in black, so-called Christian churches.
Wright and Obama are cut from the same cloth. The only difference is that Wright gets paid to say the hate out loud, while Obama gets paid by keeping it somewhat hidden. The racism problem is that Obama is a racist. Nothing else.
The sheeple are so beyond ignorant. Hmm, now which party was it back in the 1860s that wanted abolish slavery and gave them the Civil Rights Act??? I dunno... no, it absolutely wasn't the evil Republicans... no, hmmm... sorry, can't remember... oh, it doesn't matter because Hussein is the light and the glory and he's gonna give us all free stuff. And that cute chick VP of his has hot legs.
And what will happen after an Obama victory?
ALL criticism of Obama and his policies and the Democrats will be labeled racist if anyways possible.
This is a fast road to serfdom for the people of America.
2. If Obama's actual percentage of the actual white vote is significantly lower than the polls show -- say 30% instead of 40% -- the charges of "racism" will be shouted from the rooftops. But racism by whom? Conservatives would never vote for Obama in the first place, whether he was white, black, or chartreuse. Any last-minute erosion in his support would therefore be from moderates or liberals. This could make for an interesting discussion, and revelations as to who the "racists" really are.
They say the shirt is so offensive they can't even show it on TV.
Anyone know anything about that? I searched here & Google News & didn't find any references.
Yeah, McCain is such a big fat racist meanie especially when he told his supporters that Hussein was a good guy and that we shouldn't be scared of him and he'd make a good POTUS.
No, it won't end in four years. They can't figure it out that he will set racism and the black community back 4 - 6 - 100 decades.
From Jeff Head's website...
One notable quote from [James] Cone describing his Black Liberation Theology is as follows:
"Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love." - "Divine Racism: The Unacknowledged Threshold Issue for Black Theology", in African-American Religious Thought: An Anthology, by William R Jones, ed Cornel West and Eddie Glaube (Westminster John Knox Press).

From the New York Times, August 24, 2003
"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."
Article: Quieter Lives for 60's Militants, but Intensity of Beliefs Hasn't Faded
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"FBI files from 1976, recently made public under the Freedom of Information Act, confirm the connections between Weatherman, Havana, and Moscow. Weatherman leaders like Mark Rudd traveled illegally to Havana in 1968 to engage in terrorist training. There, camps set up by Soviet KGB Colonel Vadim Kotchergine were educating Westerners both in Marxist philosophy and urban warfare."
"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
And keep your powder dry!!!
