CLYBURN SEES BOOGEYMEN EVERYWHERE HE LOOKS
- House Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn, the highest-ranking black member of Congress, has a simple explanation for Barack Obamas political woes. Ill give you three guesses, and the first two dont count:
Hmm, imagine that. On Planet Clyburn, opposition to Obama isnt due to his policies or ideology let alone, the content of his character. Nope, its the color of his skin that causes millions of Americans to disapprove of this president and his agenda.
You know, Im 70 years old, Clyburn said. And I can tell you; people dont like to deal with it, but the fact of the matter is, the presidents problems are in large measure because of the color of his skin.
The Congressman also claims that the birther movement was fueled by racism as well:
I dont know why anybody didnt ask for John McCains birth certificate. He wasnt even born in this country.
Heres the fly in the disingenuous ointment: While liberals jump at every opportunity (real and imagined) to charge racism at the drop of a conservative hat, (after all, everyone knows that conservative and racist are synonymous.), how do they reconcile the far lefts disillusionment with Obama? Perhaps the far-out loons are guilty of reverse racism. Maybe they believe that Barack Obama doesnt behave black enough.
Does your brain hurt whenever you attempt to comprehend the inconsistent logic that spews forth from the American liberal? Relax and take a deep breath dont waste your time; they dont believe most of the nonsense that comes out of their mouths anyway.
Back to Clyburn who has played the Obama race card since the early days of the 2008 primaries. During Obamas first month in office, he suggested Republican opposition to the stimulus package was largely due to animosity towards blacks. Later that year, he likened ObamaCare protesters to those who attacked civil-rights marchers in the south.
Clyburn commented on a recent racist image depicting Obama as a chimpanzee:
When he [Obama] sees his face being put on a chimpanzees body; do you think he didnt see that? And I suspect they send the same faxes to his office they send to mine.
While the image of Obama was reprehensible and disgusting, I wonder if Mr. Clyburn has seen this picture -and if so if he has any thoughts about it?
Heres the deal: Two wrongs or two millions wrongs dont make a right. James Clyburn is simply another example of the hypocrisy and demagoguing that we hear from liberals on a regular basis. MSNBCs Ed Schultz is currently suspended without pay for referring to Laura Ingraham as a right-wing slut. Can you imagine the level of outcry that would occur if Sean Hannity or Bill OReilly used the same language to describe Nancy Pelosi?
As for Obama, Mr. Clyburn, I have a few other factors for consideration. Perhaps its the 9% unemployment rate. Or maybe its the horrendous deficit and the perception that your president and his (your) party would rather run commercials featuring grandmas being dumped off cliffs than offer serious proposals for true budget reform. Perhaps its the lack of respect for this man, and the belief that he is a weak, self-aggrandizing pretender to the throne who lacks the courage to make bold decisions or take timely action when needed.
Then again, maybe its because Barack Obama is black, James. After all, you have a hell of a lot more experience identifying racism than most of us. Although, its funny how Herman Cain doesnt suffer from the same discrimination, isnt it? Go figure.
Obama is not a natural born American citizen. He illegally occupies the presidency. He must be removed by impeachment.
Clyburn, Clymer? I get confused.
Call me birther. I will call you racer.
That race card is over used and setting race relations back 50 years. Sure, I’m racist, that’s why I’m leaning toward Cain. Uh, huh, explain that, Clyburn.
What a racist thing for Clyburn to say.
And that is the ONLY reason the white crackers in the DemocRAT Party put Barry in the White House. Any opposition to the destruction of capitalism in the U.S. and replacing it with communism is "racist".
Opposition to Bush: patriotic
Opposition to Zero: racist
... we need a eviction party.
Did you vote for Alvin Greene over Vic Rawl in the South Carolina Democrat Primary race for US Senate?
Of course he’s going to say that.
What’s he going to say if Herman Cain gets to be the head honcho heehee
What they always say in such cases: "Uncle Tom".
Predictable as the sunrise.
Most of Obama’s problems are with the color of his skin.
He chose to go with his black side and became a racist himself.
Now that isn’t the White Man’s fault.
He chose to go with his black side and became a racist himself.
Now that isnt the White Mans fault.
Most people don’t realise how the local media, after Joe Wilson said “You Lie!” to Ubama, went straight to Clyburn, in a slobbering frenzy, to get statements on how “racist” Wilson is (WIS-TV being the main culprit).
Not even to mention Clyburn’s absurd conspiracy theories against conservatives, promoted as fact without question, during the entire Alvin Greene election debacle.
This turd in men's clothing is the REAL Racist. But you see, it is scum like this who, if Obama came and said lay down and open your mouth for me to take a dump, he would do it and still sing praises to "The One". And if a Republican tried to step in and protect him (as a gentleman would), Clyburn would STILL call him a racist.
Clyburn is drinking the same Kool-Aide as retired General Cholon Bowel. You know, the "race before reality" crowd.
There is a reason for that.
Answer: He can’t play the race card. Herman is ALL black...PURE BLACK, not diluted.
I believe he did show his BC and it is legal.
The leftist everywhere including here, are trying their best to disillusion and depress us enough to throw up our hands and not vote. They have nothing else to try but that. Their agenda has been an open book their transparency so to speak...Destroy America (Alinsky style) and get a World government takeover. And the speeple have followed faithfully,
WE HAVE TO FIGHT BACK AND VOTE! Do Not Give Up. If any Republican running has even the slightest fault, I say a RINO will be better then a DICTATOR any day. If that RINO does not listen to the right faithful...next fight, there will be a new Party. We have to be very careful looking at a new party. It’s not time for a new party yet. IMHO
Little steps is how they got us...little steps is how we take our country back. IMHO
