When all else fails, there’s always the good old race card!
So far in the general election campaign racism has only come up tangentially. In the primary campaign it was hauled out to successfully silence America’s First Black President when the going got tough.
Franken: McCain’s a Lying Old Racist
Al Franken took time out from a busy Senate campaign for the opener to yesterday’s Saturday Night Live. He’s as original as ever. Franken again plays the racism card without base, and (get this) says McCain is OLD!I wonder why people don’t think Saturday Night Live is funny anymore?
Racist Democrats may cost Obama the election
The Associated Press speculates that if Barack Obama loses this upcoming election, racism may be the factor the factor which tips the balloting toward John McCain. That racism, they assert, will have been exhibited by Democrats against a Democrat.This theory is based on a Yahoo-AP poll:[A]n AP-Yahoo News poll … found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them “lazy,” | Read More »
Racist Dems cost Obama the presidency?
There’s a whole lot to be spun out of this poll and analysis.Appreciate the significant finding that those on this side of the aisle don’t support Obama because of his positions and the content of his character, not the color of his skin. GOP, the party that makes progress, while Sen. Byrd’s and Biden’s remain stuck in the past. *Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, | Read More »
What place does racism have in this race?
Once in a while, we all would probably admit that we find some in our midst on the right who does not seem to agree on the priorities in our country, our government, or this campaign. Today I ran into a sickening example of racism from what I assume is the right, and I thought it deserved stamping out here.Have you already heard about the | Read More »
CAUTION: Racism Still Alive As Ever… Watch Your Back!
Look, I refuse to sit here and be politically correct about race. If you’re white you’re white, if you’re black you’re black. Same with any other color. I couldn’t care less. However, I point out that, at least where I live, racism appears to be as alive and well as ever, especially in this election. The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race | Read More »
OH Dems call independent and “McCain Democrat” voters racist
Youngstown, Ohio has produced some doozies of political drama. Who can forget Jim “Beam Me Up” Traficant, the long-time Congressman (for whom I voted twice), or, more recently, disgraced philandering Ohio AG Marc Dann, (for whom I did not vote)? Both are Democrats, as a politician must be to win around this union-dominated former steel center. Two more Democrats have further distinguished the Mahoning Valley | Read More »
You Racist Constitutionalist!
First, why does anybody watch, let alone go on The View? Today John McCain did just that, and in a conversation regarding abortion, said he would prefer to have Roe overturned and let the States make that decision. How radical huh, only if you are Whoopi Goldberg and see an originalist view of the Constitution, that radical document us pesky conservatives would like to see | Read More »
How Do Conservatives Get Blacks Off The Democratic Plantation?
With Sarah Palin as the nominee, this virtually assures a John McCain victory. Of course, this also assures that 95% of black America will suffer a crushing defeat that it will take as a personal rejection from white America. Conservatives will get their man, most women will get their vice president (and the rest will get a certain Hillary Clinton) and blacks will get nothing | Read More »
How much of the ‘Curtain Vote’ will Palin bring?
What exactly is the ‘Curtain Vote?’ Simply stated, it is a vote that is different than a person’s stated public position. People can tell pollsters and friends one thing and then vote the other way once they are behind the voting booth curtain. This peculiar phenomena first started to appear in the eighties when black candidates ran for elected office in increasing numbers and racism | Read More »
McCain The Statesman
McCain Congrats ObamaSenator John McCain congratulated Barack Obama on the night of his nomination.In the 2000 presidential campaign McCain’s family experienced some of the bigotry that Obama has experienced in 2008. My devoted Republican readers recall the contentious South Carolina primary in circulated stories that McCain fathered a black child. Lets be real to those who have accused McCain of being bigotry , McCain is | Read More »
When the Republicans nominated a Democrat for Vice President
Most history books written by Democrat professors downplay the fact that the Worst President Ever was a Democrat. Did the Democrats nominate him? No, he was the 1864 Republican nominee for vice president.Andrew Johnson – Andrew Jackson Johnson, to be precise – was the only southern Senator not to go with the Confederacy. For being strong on national security, this hardline Democrat was nominated by | Read More »
Did Hillary Clinton Use a Racist Theme In Her DNC Speech?
This was probably totally unintentional, but there have been doubts about the Clintons. I DO NOT say that the Clintons, or that Hillary herself, are/is racist, but to use the following line in her DNC speech when everyone is scrutinizing whether she will support Obama, and everyone is scrutinizing her phraseology in doing so, is, at minimum, a severe lapse in judgment: “And along the | Read More »
Dems Already Making Preemptive Excuses
Tell me if you’ve had this happen to you recently. You’re conversing/debating with a known leftist friend or colleague, and the topic of Obama comes up. They spend several hours praising The One, how he’s so brilliant, so articulate, so charming, so… everything this country needs.Then they say, “But I don’t think he’s going to be elected” with despair in their voice.Naturally, you ask, “Why | Read More »
You can call me a dirty son of a (gun) but if you ever call me “Daddy” again…
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at http://tinyurl.com/55cnw9 When a man looks at an individual and makes a blanket judgment or assumption based on an unrelated physical characteristic, that man has engaged in bigotry.Bigotry is ugly. It is destructive. It is a nasty business and there should be no place for it in campaigns, elections, the mainstream media or the Michigan blogosphere. But if we’ve learned anything | Read More »
