As a racially insensitive White Male Oppressor, I'm several steps past fed up with the racism of Barack Obama, his allies and supporters. Even leaving out the infamous Rev Wright, Obama himself and his campaign organization have directly gone to racial nonsense repeatedly. Why, saying anything about his Fannie friend Franklin Raines is racist. Sarah Palin saying anything about Bill Ayers and Obama is apparently racist as well.
Of course, Obama himself can only go so far with stuff like how he doesn't look like those other presidents that the "bitter" rednecks vote for before he'd get that nonsense broke off in his uniter-not-a-divider ass, but of course he has legions of minions happy to make variations of arguments that pretty much the only way Barack could lose is white racism. Shut up already, damn.
There are just thousands of obnoxious window lickers spouting racial "bullshit from the internet," like Ben Fold's girlfriend at the ill-fated Christmas party in the brand new classic, "Bitch Went Nuts.".
Out of all of that, I could call up the most egregious example and use it to make my point, but we have a more typical example right here on Blogcritics from our own Dawn Olsen, who knows her gossip but can wander into left fields of silly when she starts talking politics. In her article "Silent Racism DOES Exist And McCain's Counting On It" she gets the concept exactly, 100% precisely backwards right from the title.
LOUD, OPEN racism exists in this campaign, and Obama is counting on it. This is true in several different directions. He's played the race card how many different times already?
But the bigger point is that Obama is only close to being elected president exactly because he's black. He has not even a vaguely credible resume or any substantial accomplishments. No white man with his flimsy record (much less his dark and unsavory alliances) would ever have been in line to win the nomination.
It's an amorphous thing to try to put numbers to, but it might be that there's 5% of white folks just aren't going to vote for a black guy. But for that, there's probably at least 50% who are particularly anxious to vote for a black man to prove that they're not racists or some such foolishness.
He doesn't even have to be qualified – just try to act like you won't pee on the rug – be clean and articulate, as his running mate might say. But even white folks anxious to do penance might be starting to detect a faint odor of urine from Obama's corner.
And the Bradley or Wilder effect is absolutely NOT a sign of white racism, but merely a response to social pressure. Telling a pollster what you know is the correct social response does not mean that you're a racist. It might just be that you don't want people thinking that you are one.
What it represents is the result of typical intimidating liberal bullshit like this article that looks to come as close as possible to saying that anybody who does not support Obama is a racist. You might nominally say you're not doing that of course, but then in fact pretty much assume it unless they can prove otherwise to your liberal satisfaction.
But actually, Barack Obama in fact specifically personally very much deserves to have race held against him, and hasn't. That's not simply because he's black, but because he's the worst kind of black ghetto demagogue – Jesse Jackson with a Harvard degree. Note that this criticism would not apply to, for example, Colin Powell or Harold Ford Jr.
Obama made his name as a consigliere to an absolutely criminal black gang, ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. This is his famous qualifying career as a "community organizer." They have a long, famous and ongoing history of vote fraud, including new questionable activity here in Indiana, where Indianapolis appears to have more registered than possible eligible voters. The Obama campaign is directly paying ACORN somewhere getting close to a million dollars to conduct these fraudulent activities.
Far worse though, ACORN was instrumental in the cheap racist mau-mauing that forced banks to let them sign people up for a bunch of these bad mortgages (and get commissions) that are the original kernel (or acorn) of the current economic crisis. And they were instrumental in pushing Fannie into their ill behavior to continue enabling their shenanigans, which is the main thing what has really screwed the pooch.
But of course I'm a racist for noticing any of this — as is anyone else who wouldn't just recognize Saint Obama as Allah's gift to America and indeed the Light of the World. I'm feeling that tingling up my leg right now.
Eventually, you pinko window lickers WILL answer to President Palin, and you will pay!
FACT: Sarah and Todd Palin caught Moby Dick while out fishing for salmon. Sarah Palin clubbed him to death like a baby seal, and they lived for two years off the proceeds.Powered by Sidelines
