THE RACE CARD - WHO'S ZOOMING WHO?


Obama fans like to claim that Hillary used the race card during her historical campaign against him. But let's look at the record and see who's zooming who.

When Hillary said that without President Lyndon Johnson signing the civil rights bill blacks would've never had legal protection against flagrant racism, well, that was racist.

When Bill Clinton duly noted that Obama claims that he vehemently opposed the Iraq war with a simple speech as a state legislator was bullshit, er, a fairy tale, that was racist too.

And when Bill Clinton noted that Jesse Jackson ran a great campaign in South Carolina, won and then went on to lose the nomination, that was especially racist.

Of course Hillary supporters were a bunch of racists, too.

When pollsters got it wrong in New Hampshire and voters gave Hillary the nod, the Bradley effect was clearly visible and Hillary supporters were closet racists.

And when Obama spoke to a crowd of supporters in California and characterized Hillary fans as people who cling to their religion and guns, this absolutely proved Hillary supporters were racists, of course

Well, the latest version is Obama explaining to people in Florida why he's having problems with McSame in spite of the best political landscape for Democrats since 1974 -- right after Nixon was impeached -- courtesy of a transcript by Time. It shows the real master race baiter at work.

“The choice is clear. Most of all we can choose between hope and fear. It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?

He’s got a feisty wife.”

(big cheer).

“We know the strategy because they’ve already shown their cards. Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn’t moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us.”

Yes, we know all about the strategy, don't we, Barky...? Truthteller of No Quarter helps explain it for Obamazoids with their ostrich necks blocked by all that unity sand.

Let us summarize the Obama campaign strategy: when one is poised to lose, drop the race card, but be sure to claim your opponents are the ones who are divisive, even if you are the one who disenfranchised the voters to whom you are appealing for funds. Always eschew any and all discussions on policy, and always refer to your opponents as racist and xenophobic. This is Obama’s version of unity, and this is Obama’s notion of waging a different type of political campaign. Welcome to Obamatopia, where the deck is always stacked with strategically placed race cards to be played with impunity.
When the presidential race is over and Obama finds himself on the outside looking in, he'll blame it on racism and the bitches who refused to support him.

Comments:
Hey, HL, you left out the hard-working white Americans comment, from Hillary's own mouth.

We have lived in the South long enough to recognize race-baiting. The voters have spoken, and rejected this candidacy. If you're still clinging to it, long after the candidate herself gave up, you need to examine just why.
 
Spotter...you're right on. Of course, no one could criticize Hillary during the campaign of fear of being called a sexist by HL. Everything was sexist...her thin Senate record, her inability to tell the truth, her campaign's vapid spin, and the hypocrisy of her corrupt campaign staffers. The Clintons injected race into the campaign at every turn when they found out they were losing.

No one disenfranchised voters other than the states who broke the rules. To still spin crap about Senator Obama trying to supress votes is just pathetic. To say that Obama has injected race into the debate when other groups have clearly made race an issue (i.e. Clinton in WV, race buttons in TX, Fox News coverage) is just ridiculous.

I take charges of racism very seriously, and I'm sick of everyone throwing around the word like its water.
 
John, you better email Obama; he's still using the tired cock-and-bull narrative that took him to the mountain top.

“Blaming racism is not just false, it is toxic.” A quote Dems may want to keep in mind by Larry Elder, author of "Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card - and Lose."
 
And then there's Geraldine Ferraro....

HL, I have lived in two cities torn apart by racial divisions. I cannot sit by while a cynical politician like Hillary Clinton blithely opens these wounds for her personal benefit, long after she lost fair and square. She's a Democrat; she knows better. You claim to be a Democrat. Act like one.
 
HL--Please come up with something original next time instead of quoting Larry Elder. It didn't do anything to back up your crappy arguments because you still fail to provide basic facts to counter real incidents of racism. Identifying racism isn't racist--using race as a wedge is. If you can't tell the difference, then I can't help you there.

Why don't you try emailing Senator Obama and apologize for your slanderous comments about his character and campaign?

Spotter...HRC and her husband run scorched-earth campaigns. That's all they know. They could care less about the people left in the aftermath of their lies and deceit. Why anyone would want such a president in the White House is beyond me.
 
HI there! I love your post on the race card issue. May we republish it at No Quarter, with a prominent link to your blog? e-mail me at susanunpc at gmail dot com . thank you!
 
No Quarter...the extreme fringe group of rabid Clinton supporters who can't support anything with facts and spew garbage about anyone who isn't a Bill and Hillary disciple? I guess the wolves are smelling the meat...

I seem to recall when Larry Johnson was quite the progressive hero during the Plame imbroglio.

Johnson has done more for our country than babyjeezusObama, or I for that matter, could ever do.

Get down on your knees and thank folks like Larry who were the ones who kept America safe during the perilous Cold War.
 
How does a Black candidate play the race card with an electorate that's overwhelmingly white? In case you haven't noticed, it's not like Barack's race has been as asset with white voters. For that matter, I don't think it was in Hillary's interest to play the race card either, and I agree that a lot of her comments were taken out-of-context. Most of this controversy was whipped up by partisans & the media.

And, yes, Larry Johnson's website has descended into a vile piece of trash. SusanUNPC's approving link to Pat Buchanan's "A Brief for Whitey" is an example of that.
 
Larry Johnson doesn't deserve the fat from bacon meat...try finding a real American to call a hero.
 
John, you mean like you? Please state your hero credentials or STFU.
 
I never professed to be a hero...but Larry Johnson is far from one. Try the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. or Benjamin Bannker. Telling me to "STFU" makes you look like a common street thug. People who curse so easily just aren't smart, and lack CLASS. You are such a disgrace to the blogosphere.
