Skip to comments.Racism Said to Be Reason for Anti-Obama Vote in Dem Primaries
Posted on 05/25/2012 10:04:13 PM PDT by John Semmens
The Democratic presidential primaries in West Virginia, Arkansas, and Kentucky were all won by President Obama. Still, approximately 40% of the votes went for, respectively, an incarcerated felon, a virtual unknown, and uncommitted. Similar less than dominant outcomes in a few of the 1968 primaries inspired incumbent President Lyndon Johnson to withdraw from the race. No Obama withdrawal is anticipated.
Campaign adviser David Axelrod attributed the showing to residual racism. To those who are stunned by thisafter all these were Democratic primariesI suggest they take a look at history. The three states we are talking about are all in the South. Southern Democrats have historically been racists. The defenders of slavery were all southern Democrats. The South is where the Ku Klux Klan has traditionally been most powerful. So, the fact that some rump of the Democratic Party in these states would come out and vote to try to embarrass a Black President should surprise no one.
Axelrod said he didn't think that these outcomes presage problems for the President's reelection. The anti-racist majority backing the President didn't have much incentive to vote in these primaries, he pointed out. The President is already a lock for the nomination. They will come out to vote against racism in November.
In related news, the New Black Panthers' National Field Marshal, King Samir Shabazz, warned that our tolerance for this kind of disrespectful voting is wearing thin. We are going to take over this country block-by-block. Crackers like these will soon find themselves in the cemetery where their future votes can be cast more responsibly and respectfully by those who really care about the Black man's rights.

And his failed ... everything ... has nothing to do with it?
They mean the racism of the white half of Obama that’s responsible for such a devastating unemployment rate among black Americans and especially young black Americans?
It's the only reason any one will vote for him. So Racism is the reason for the Pro 0b0ttt0 vote.
Gee...maybe then racism is going to save the country from this incompetent, destructive, evil f**k.
Why is this posted under semi-satire?
As for calling me a racist because I don’t want obama re-elected. Well, if that makes them feel better, go ahead.
To the headline: you mean democrats are racist - the horror.
Uh . . . John, uh . . . West Virginia and Kentucky were Northern States . . .
That’s beside the point!
Just typical Dem dialectic.
That wasn’t their fault. Geography is a harsh task master!
I am left to wonder if that is indeed the case, why racism didn’t rear it’s head Three and a half years ago?
Well, what’s new? We know Democrate constituency is hugely made up of racists.
So, 40% of DEMOCRATS are racists??
Do these people even bother to think before they speak? Or is the Orwellian narrative all that matters?
Oh, and there was also Oklahoma a few weeks ago...:))
John, sadly, this one doesn’t even qualify as semi-satire. It’s real.
Christian, former military, retired business owner, white guy anti obammy zealot. Sooo naturally i must be racist.
So, Democrats are racists? And Homophobes too?
