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 | 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 Obama Senator 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 | 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 | 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 | 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 | Read More »

Obama will end racism in Iraq
It is all here, in an LA Times blog, and we cannot deny it. As he travels through the country, Razzaq carries with him the resumes and biographies of black Iraqis who he says have been denied jobs and high political appointments because of their race. If Obama wins in November, he’s hoping Iraq’s leaders will take a closer look at the documents and give | Read More »
Playing the racist card
Barack Obama accuses John McCain of playing the race card. Most voters seem to think it is Obama who is playing the race card, but he is actually doing something rather different. He is playing the racist card. There is a difference. The race card – as most people tend to define it – is about appealing to people on grounds of race: don’t vote | Read More »
Re: Worry on the Left
…to BrianFaughnan’s quite good post, but I decided it was worth it’s own blog: Obama has two problems, here. The first is that he needs to “respond to every criticism leveled at him by a Republican operative,” simply because his party’s mythology is full of stories about The Democrat Who Wouldn’t Fight Back (instead of, say, The Democrat Who Fought Back Like an Idiot). He | Read More »
Who played the race card? Rasmussen finds that Obama did
Rasmussen actually asked people: As for Obama’s comment, 53% of white voters saw it as racist, as did 44% of African-Americans and 61% of all other voters. So who was racist? Unaffiliated voters, by a five-to-one margin, said the McCain ad was not racist. By a much narrower 50% to 38% margin, unaffiliateds viewed Obama’s comment as racist. Perhaps the press and the lunatic lefty | Read More »
