Barack Obama tries to explain that ‘good people’ still hold racial stereotypes

Friday, March 21st, 2008

He said what?

Barack Obama suggested Thursday the “typical white person” - much like his grandma - fears black men on the street, prompting a quick backpedal from his aides, who conceded the senator’s words may give the wrong impression.

During an interview on a Philadelphia radio station, Obama was asked about his candid remarks about his white maternal grandmother during an address on race relations Tuesday. In that speech, he said his grandmother confessed “her fear of black men who passed her by on the street.”

“The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t,” Obama told WIP Sports Radio.”But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred into our experiences that don’t go away, and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.”

In the speech, he sought to calm the fury surrounding the controversial remarks of his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, saying he could no more disown Wright than he could his grandmother, who helped raise him.

Barack Obama tries to explain that ‘good people’ still hold racial stereotypes

To a certain degree, Barack Hussein Obama is correct in his statement, “good people still hold racial stereotypes”, good people DO still hold certain racial stereotypes, I’m one of them, and yes, I do have some racism in me, I don’t deny it, and I can’t think of anyone I know, of ANY race, that doesn’t hold at least some kind of stereotypical feelings regarding race and racial bias, but I don’t blatantly flaunt my feelings on the issue, I don’t denigrate an entire race, or races, simply because of the actions of a few individuals that attempt to sway the opinion of the world as they embrace their racism like a shield…

What Barack Hussein Obama fails to say here is that good people don’t spend 20 years of their lives following and supporting these types of individuals, good people stand up for what is right and speak out against the type of blatant racist that he, Obama, has chosen as a pastor and spiritual advisor, and has selected to be his minister for the last 20 years…

Barack Hussein Obama is doing everything possible to justify the remarks of his Rev. Wright and he just can’t get the job done, simply because there is NO justification to be had, replace a few words of Wrights sermon in question and insert the words BLACK, BLACK AMERICA and Goddamn BLACK AMERICA and you’d be listening to a speech by a white supremacist, skinhead or a Klan leader, you know the ones I refer to, and it is a certainty that if ANY white person made such statements, the entire black community would be calling for his head to be removed, much as Obama himself called for the removal of Don Imus after the nappy headed ho’s comments, ABC News: Obama: Fire Imus

And even now Obama refuses to condemn his preacher for making remarks that were much worse…

I submit to you that Barack Hussein Obama is not only a racist and a racist supporter, but a hypocrite as well, and he has NO business leading this nation as president, he is NOT the kind of person the USA needs in that position…

Obama to Confront Racial Issues

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama is seeking to distance himself from “stupid statements” by his longtime pastor that have aggravated racial divisions in the contentious Democratic primary battle. He is calling for both sides to tone down their rhetoric.

The Illinois senator is using a speech at a site near the nation’s birthplace to present what his campaign said would be a comprehensive take on “race, politics, and unifying our country.”

Among other things, the Illinois Democrat was seeking to calm the uproar over racially tinged sermons by his former pastor at Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, remarks that have threatened to undercut Obama’s campaign theme of easing the racial divide.

Wright had been Obama’s pastor for nearly 20 years until retiring recently, and officiated at Obama’s wedding and baptized his two daughters. His inflammatory statements have been cited by Obama detractors, including comments that blacks continue to be mistreated by whites and a suggestion that U.S. “terrorism” helped bring on the Sept. 11 attacks.

“The conversation over the last couple of days has been dominated by some stupid statements that were made by Reverend Wright, but also caricatures of Reverend Wright and Trinity United Church of Christ - which, by the way, is part of a denomination that is overwhelmingly white. I think that that has distracted us from the possibilities of moving beyond some of these arguments,” Obama said in an interview with PBS.

Obama to Confront Racial Issues

Barack Hussein Obama must think that the Dems are totally stupid, and granted, as an independent conservative, there truly have been times when I have thought so as well, but in this attempt to distance himself from his ‘longtime pastor’, an individual that has exhibited gross hatred for the United States of America and prejudice against all of white America, Obama has only widened the chasm between the races and the parties…

There is NO WAY that Barack Hussein Obama attended this persons church and claimed this person as a spiritual advisor for the last 20 years and can then say that he, Obama, didn’t KNOW that these were the views held and espoused by Wright, there is no way that these very same views aren’t those held by Obama himself, regardless of what his current words say, you don’t attend a HATE church, led by a HATE preacher, for that length of time, and not be in agreement WITH him, because if you don’t agree with him, why keep attending??

Why continue to listen to, and follow the rhetoric of a hate filled person calling himself a preacher of God’s word as that so-called preacher hides behind his title and muddies all lines of decency with his vitriolic hate of all things white and American, unless you are Wright’s disciple and hold those exact same views yourself??

Obama is either a closet American hater and a racist or he is a liar and a hypocrite of the worst order, either way, Barack Hussein Obama is the WRONG person to hold the highest office in this land, and if the Democratic citizens of Illinois have any dignity left in them, once this is over they will NOT return this lying hypocrite to the U.S. Senate…

Many say that racism is alive and well in America, and they are correct, it is, and people like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and now Jeremiah Wright make us all painfully aware of that fact as they keep radical racial issues and all around hatred inflamed simply because it serves their purposes, even if the continued hatred destroys America, as long as individuals like them can make a few dollars off of their hatred, that hatred will continue, and ALL Americans will suffer from that hatred, black and white, as long as hatred and racism is preached, regardless of who is doing the preaching, hatred and racism will remain alive and well in this nation…

EDIT TO ADD: I am sitting here listening to Barack Hussein Obama give his ‘I gotta cover my ass’ speech and all I hear is pure BS, he addresses racial issues NOW simply because Rev. Wright has put him in a position where he, Obama, can very easily become an also ran in the ‘08 race for the White House, it has been my personal experience that very few people actually regret their actions and true beliefs, what they regret is having those actions and beliefs outed, and nothing brings out that regret like politics…

Obama Tells Vets No Lower Drinking Age

Monday, March 17th, 2008

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama on Monday promised Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans help with their grievances - save one. “I know it drives you nuts. But I’m not going to lower the drinking age,” the presidential candidate said.

Army veteran Ernest Johnson, 23, of Connecticut, said one of the things that peeved him before he turned 21 was that he couldn’t come home and drink a beer - even though he was old enough to serve in the armed services and die for his country.

Obama told Johnson he sympathized, but that setting the legal drinking age at 21 had helped reduce drunken driving incidents and should remain.

The Illinois senator was taping a round-table discussion with eight veterans that is to be broadcast by MTV on the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.

Obama Tells Vets No Lower Drinking Age

Here you go, a prime example of how to lose the military vote in one easy lesson, I hope Obama pisses off every member of the U.S. military, and with any luck, he just might…

Obama is a fool, anyone, and I DO mean anyone that thinks the drinking age should be 21 is a fool and I’ll tell you why, if I am old enough to vote, if I am old enough to serve in the military, if I am old enough to take the life of another human being in the defense of my country, then by God, I am damn sure old enough to have a drink…

And if I am NOT considered to be old enough to have a legal drink at an age where I can be an active military member, then the age of military service needs to be changed to 21 at the minimum, like that’s going to happen…

I fully believe that the legal drinking age should be 18 years of age, if for no other reason than this, if you are old enough to die FOR your country, shouldn’t you be allowed to have a legal drink IN your country??

To me it’s the ultimate hypocrisy to ask a man to carry a rifle, defend this nation and put his life on the line and then tell him he’s NOT man enough to have a cold beer if he wants one, total hypocrisy, and I guess that’s why an asshat like Obama would support not changing the age of legal consent…

Despicable bastard…

Obama’s church accuses media of character assassination

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

The Chicago church attended by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) issued a statement Sunday contending that coverage of his pastor’s inflammatory remarks amounted to character assassination and “an attack on … the history of the African American church.”

Obama distanced himself from inflammatory comments by the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., retiring pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, after they circulated on YouTube last week and were played repeatedly by cable news channels.

Wright, condemning society as racist, said, “God [expletive] America” and referred to the “U.S. of KKK-A.”

The statement begins: “Nearly three weeks before the 40th commemorative anniversary of the murder of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.’s character is being assassinated in the public sphere because he has preached a social gospel on behalf of oppressed women, children and men in America and around the globe.”

The statement adds: “Trinity United Church of Christ’s ministry is inclusive and global.”

Obama’s church accuses media of character assassination

I have tried to avoid this topic, I really have, because no matter what I say at this point, I am going to be accused of racism…

Why is it that a black individual can pretty much say anything they like and all you hear is ‘Well, you don’t know what the brother is feeling’ but if a white man says it, it’s a racist remark?? Can anyone explain that one to me??

With that said, I’m just gonna go ahead and say what’s on my mind and if I am accused of being a racist then by God, I’ll just BE a racist…

Screw Obama’s spiritual leader of so many years and screw Obama for being the liar that he is, to say that he didn’t know this asshole was a radical, American hating racist makes Obama a damned liar, and even MORE irrelevant than he already was…

If it means supporting McCain to keep this skinny, purple lipped, half-assed black son of a bitch stealth muzzie OUT of the White House, then by God I’ll support McCain, I’d support Hillary to keep this sorry piece of garbage out of the White House, and I’d rather see Satan himself in the Oval Office as opposed to seeing Hillary there…

If Obamalamadingdong gets in the White House, we are down the tubes folks, if anyone believes that George W. Bush is one of the 2 worst presidents in recent history, and I do, I feel that this guy will make Bush and Carter both look like geniuses…

Fallon Resigns As Mideast Military Chief

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy admiral in charge of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan announced Tuesday that he is resigning over press reports portraying him as opposed to President Bush’s Iran policy.

Adm. William J. Fallon, one of the most experienced officers in the U.S. military, said the reports were wrong but had become a distraction hampering his efforts in the Middle East. Fallon’s area of responsibility includes Iran and stretches from Central Asia across the Middle East to the Horn of Africa.

“I don’t believe there have ever been any differences about the objectives of our policy in the Central Command area of responsibility,” Fallon said, and he regretted “the simple perception that there is.” He was in Iraq when he made the statement.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates told a Pentagon news conference that he accepted Fallon’s request to resign and retire from the Navy, agreeing that the Iran issue had become a distraction. But Gates said repeatedly that he believed talk of Fallon opposing Bush on Iran was mistaken.

Fallon Resigns As Mideast Military Chief

Anyone that opposes ‘The Bush’ shall be banished from ALL military hierarchy, forever…

And let he that has dedicated his life to the military and defense of this nation be accused of TREASON by The Bush Bots should said military leader(s) speak ill of ‘The Bush’ or ‘The Party’…

Let retired Generals and other high ranking officer be accused of high crimes and treason should they speak in opposition of ‘The Bush’…

George W. Bush has bankrupt this nation, he continues to take us even further into the abyss with his debacle in Iraq, we borrow money from the world to run America, we are owned by the world and that ladies and gents is exactly where ‘The Bush’ wants us to be, make no mistake, ‘The Bush’ is one goofy acting SOB but he is NOT stupid, he is inherently evil and that evil has infested his entire administration, and we, the people, suffer because we didn’t insist on the very best, we settled for what appeared to be the lesser of 2 evils…

Speak ill of ‘The Bush’ and you’ll lose your command, have your honor impugned and your integrity questioned, along with your patriotism and Americanism, you doubt that?? Read the Bot Blogs, ‘The Bush’ can do NO wrong…

So they think…

If there is a God in heaven, George W. Bush will pay for his crimes, and he IS guilty of crimes against THIS nation, I don’t give a damn about crimes against other nations, but what ‘The Bush’ has done to America is nothing less than a crime…

NY Governor Linked to Prostitution Ring

Monday, March 10th, 2008

NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Eliot Spitzer, the crusading politician who built his career on rooting out corruption, has told senior advisers he was involved in a prostitution ring, The New York Times reported Monday. In a public statement, Spitzer apologized to his family and the public but did not elaborate on the reported links to a prostitution ring.

The Times reported that a person with knowledge of the governor’s role believes the governor is identified as a client in court papers. Four people allegedly connected to a high-end prostitution ring called Emperors Club VIP were arrested last week.

The Web site of the Emperors Club VIP displays photographs of scantily clad women with their faces hidden. It also shows hourly rates depending on whether the prostitutes were rated with one diamond, the lowest ranking, or seven diamonds, the highest. The most highly ranked prostitutes cost $5,500 an hour, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said the defendants arranged connections between wealthy men and more than 50 prostitutes in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Miami, London and Paris.

The Times reported that the governor’s travel records show he was in Washington in mid-February, and that one of the clients arranged to meet with a prostitute on the night of Feb. 13.
