RUSH: The Obama campaign’s race-card gambit - Inflaming tensions part of re-election strategy (Wow!)
The Washington Times ^ | August 23, 2012 | Erik Rush

While Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s “back in chains” remark in front of a largely black audience on Aug. 14 definitely can be considered race-baiting, based on the Obama administration’s reaction, it was more an off-the-cuff embarrassment than part of a calculated effort to rile black Americans and engender fear.

Not that there isn’t an effort on the part of the Obama campaign to do so. There most certainly is, and we can count on it to intensify as this presidential campaign wears on. I asserted some time ago that the 2012 presidential race would be “the race card on steroids,” but not necessarily through Mr. Obama’s campaign demonizing his opponent via accusations of racism. A photograph of Mitt Romney’s father, George, participating in a civil rights march in Grosse Pointe, Mich., in 1963 already has become practically iconic in conservative circles and no doubt will be at the ready should race come into play against candidate Mitt Romney.

The reason Camp Obama will continue to foment racial discord is, quite simply, the reason it has done so since 2008. The radical elements with whom President Obama was politically aligned before seeking the presidency were aware of the latitude they likely would enjoy were Mr. Obama to become president. This included black nationalist factions such as the New Black Panther Party, with whom he demonstrated in 2007, as well as the Nation of Islam. Their activities since Mr. Obama was inaugurated bear witness to this fact.

The significance of Mr. Obama keeping such bedfellows cannot be understated. This differs from the case of Mr. Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who is merely an America-damning racist. It has been documented that the Weather Underground, which Mr. Obama’s comrade William Ayers helped found, once advocated killing off 25 million Americans...

It dawned on me the other day why Obama “loves” campaigning. He loves it because it’s all about him, but, most of all...it’s because he can “HATE” all over another person. The beast in him needs fed, and he feeds it by hating on his opponents.

He thrives on hating on America and anyone that threatens his power.

Look for the Mormon card to be played to the hilt, too.

Tonite the Mark Levin show guest host said NBC will be running a “program” on the eve of the GOP convention called Rock Center and will feature Mormonism—the host seemed to feel this was going to be a hit piece...

You can listen to replay on Mark Levin Show website.

The Mormons have more money and power that most people don't even know about.

They are the largest Landowner in Florida and who knows what they own other places

Thanks for the clarification. I hope someone or some group will stand up to the hyenas that masquerade as reporters...

I think the wacked out left has wanted race riots and destruction for a while. It became obvious with George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin that they wanted racial tension, death and destruction. It is their main campaign strategy.

I think they believe that they can have Obama come forward and calm the racial seas and thus win the election. Never mind he is the man creating the waves that he would then have to calm.

Democrats are evil.

Substitute in Mormon for Mufasa.

"mufasa", "ooo... say it again", "mufasa... MUFASA, MUFASA, MUFASA" , "OOO! IT TINGLES!"

"mormon", "ooo... say it again", "mormon... MORMON, MORMON, MORMON" , "OOO! IT TINGLES!"

This hatred, fear and bigotry is ridiculous. Are we so insecure in our own religious beliefs that we fear and want to destroy another group? This is just short of the way Muslims treat other religions and anyone who dares convert out. They are fearful of the weakness of their own religion, and rather than showing how good their own is, they attack.

I believe Mormons are wrong on a lot of things, but they also have a lot of good characteristics that should be admired. We should worry about weaknesses and flaws in our own faith and not so much about Romney's. At least he isn't a confused Black Liberation Theologian/Marxist/Atheist/Homosexual/Whatever else threat to our nation.
