Yes, Obama is a 'magic Negro' (Scathing!)
WND ^ | 5/8/07 | Mychal Massie

Posted on 05/08/2007 11:36:09 AM PDT by pissant

There's a brouhaha brewing over a parody composed and performed by Paul Shanklin for the Rush Limbaugh show. Albeit liberals across their "conflicted" divide are in a blather, feigning insult and indignation, in the mind of this essayist, liberal Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama must be a "magic Negro" if we are to believe certain of his claims and things on which he is still unchallenged.

We understand that the idea of elutriating the airwaves of those they deem unfit is not "dernier cri" amongst the pantheon of liberals who have given themselves to defending America against rational, cogent and factual information – their membership having received a shot of adrenaline in the aftermath of the Don Imus firing for misapplying three words to the Rutgers girls basketball team instead of toward Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice or Justice Janice Rogers Brown.

I suggest, before liberaldom gets their "Hanes" tied in too large of a knot, and before Republicans of good conscience (sarcasm intended) get too far down the road of denunciating Limbaugh, that they do their homework. Because even allowing for the duplicitous double standards of liberals, they cannot attack Rush without first attacking one of their own. It was David Ehrenstein who resurrected the phrase "magic Negro" ("Obama the magic Negro"; Los Angeles Times; March 19, 2007).

The phrase has its etymological beginnings in the post Brown v. Board of Education period. The reference refers to a Negro who has no past – he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist. As Ehrenstein wrote, "He's there to assuage white guilt" over their involvement in slavery and racial segregation in American history, while "replacing stereotypes of dangerous, highly sexualized, black men with a benign figure, for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest." The translation being, Obama doesn't behave like "Cool Moe D," Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson – white women will be safe around him.

And while the term as used by Ehrenstein was intended as the pejorative it is, it was clearly not the intent of Shanklin or Limbaugh, who are guilty only of poking fun at self-righteous bigoted liberals.

But to my point, I view Obama as a "magic Negro" because of his ability, thus far, to emerge unscathed from the types of questionable tall tales (read lies), misrepresentations, religious affiliations and political positions that should have voters and the media demanding answers.

Only a man of magic (Negro or otherwise) could tell the story of a "revelation," a "violent" awakening, an incident that "permanently altered" his "vision," as Richard Cohen wrote, and as the Chicago Tribune called into serious question the truth of Obama's statements – and thus the integrity of the man. And yet no one in the public or media demands an explanation ("Obama's back story"; Washington Post; March 27, 2007).

Hillary Clinton's making $100,000 in 10 months on a $1,000 investment is understandable because she is the smartest woman on earth. But no one has labeled Obama the smartest man. So one is left to deduce magic is the reason the media are not demanding explanations about his ties to the indicted dealmaker Antoin "Tony" Rezko and a questionable (read shady) land deal.

It must be magic that prevents the media from probing the "internship he provided to John Aramanda, whose father, Joseph Aramanda – a key Rezko business associate, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal corruption case against Rezko. Aramanda has also contributed $11,500 to Obama since 2000" (See: "Obama's Rezko ties deeper than land deal"; Dec. 23, 2006; Frank Main; Chicago Sun-Times).

And it can only be the most powerful of the dark sciences that allows its practitioner to convince the people of his adopted race, that he is one of them and interested in their well-being, even as he advocates the genocide of their future generations vis-à-vis abortion.

It can only be that old black magic that directs the media to challenge a Republican presidential candidate about his Mormonism, but overlooks Obama's affiliation with a church that is of questionable theology at best.

Combined with questions that are not being asked about his wife's questionable alleged pay raises, certain aspects of his time at Harvard and questionable accounts in his memoirs, as stated before, only a man of great "magic," Negro notwithstanding, could have so much to be questioned about, with no one asking the questions.

Anyone have any idea what the questionable things about his time at Harvard are? I'm interested in learning more about that. My understanding was the he was elected head of the Law Review, which is very prestigious honor. I've never heard there was anything to question about that phase of his life.

What am I missing? Fill me in, please.

Check out Rush's interview on KFBK in Sacromento this morning, refuting the KOVR, ABC13 Morning team.

Rush talks about CBS13.com on KFBK

You have to watch the very end, liberal girly-man Chris Burrous really gets his panties in a wad that Rush wouldn't talk to him.

Too funny. (Hope I got the station names right)

After priming the public with the Imus nonsense, the libs thought that they finally “had” Limbaugh on this “Magic Negro” thing.
They will lose this one, but use it in future rantings as another example of Limbaugh’s racism.

Barack Hussein Obama on Muslims

Obama is also protective of civil rights for Muslims in the U.S., saying, "In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging," he laments.  "I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Obama sponsors Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.  If you don't understand the implications of this act, read this.

Obama calls the Iraq war "a botched and ill-advised U.S. military incursion into a Muslim country."

Speaking about Malcolm X, Obama said: "Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation."

Obama's pastor Jeremiah A. Wright told The New York Times in an interview, published March 6th:  "When his (Obama's) enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli," with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to visit Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, "a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."

In March, Obama tells the Muscatine, Illinois Dhimmicratic party activists that he supports relaxing restrictions on aid to the Palestinian people.  He said they have suffered the most as a result of stalled peace efforts with Israel.  "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people."

Obama's picture is currently displayed on the page banner of Project Islamic H.O.P.E., a national organization that advocates for the human rights of oppressed People regardless of race, gender or religion.  Project Islamic H.O.P.E. follows the teachings of the Holy Quran and the example of Prophet Muhammad.  They support and follow the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, one of the world’s foremost Islamic leaders.

The Islamic rules

The Islamic website, Light of Life, defines apostasy as follows:

Apostasy can occur by an explicit declaration, such as, "I associate other gods alongside Allah" (usherek billah) ...

The same holds true when a Muslim enters a church, worships an idol, or learns and practices magic, for by magic one glorifies a name other than Allah and ascribes predestination, knowledge and control of fate to someone other than Allah.

All four imams (the founders of the four schools of Islamic law) -- may Allah have mercy upon them -- agree that the apostate whose fall from Islam is beyond doubt -- may Allah forbid it -- must be killed, and his blood must be spilled without reservation.  The hypocrite and heretic (zindiq) who poses as a Muslim but has secretly remained an unbeliever must also be killed.

Now ask yourself this

Why has not a single Imam, Mullah or other Muslim, anywhere in the world, called for Obama to be treated as an apostate?

Kinda makes you wanna go hhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Did you know

Muslims practice al Taqiiyya and dissimulation.  These are words used for a practice of Muslims blatantly lying to non-Muslims.  Muslims consider the act of Al-taqiyya or lying to non-Muslims to be a good work.

elutriate - To purify or separate by washing and straining or decanting.

So if I boil some spaghetti and dump it into a colander I'm elutriating. Cool!

That “African American” crap is a hoot.

I knew a black guy third or forth generation from London. As soon as he got to America he was suddenly “African”. The same goes for the Jamaicans. They also get Afrikaners as soon as they come to America.

Then you have the problem of people who are actually from Africa (both White and Black) who don't know what to call themselves. I know a white doctor from Africa who has become an America citizen. Whenever he fills out a form and they ask 'are you an African American' of course he says yes. But of course he is not an African American under their definition because what they are really asking is "Are you Black?". But in their tortured minds they have convinced themselves that asking "Are you Black? is somehow a bad thing.

PC thugs are constantly seeking to correct a problem that only exists in their own minds. And they have no respect for logic, reason, or even the people they purport to “help”.

Like I said, it’s a hoot. lol

No kidding - oh look! Now it’s a national news story! And it led off one Bay Area newscast!

What a disingenuous piece of excrement. It was Channel 13’s OWN newscast - they create the story and then report on it like it’s real news. And I notice they don’t report the results of their polls or the fact that NONE of their feedback was positive to their stated goals and aims.

And cry me a river, Burroughs. Rush is a national figure - you’re a local hack. KFBK does not owe you air time with Rush Limbaugh or anyone else. You barged into the radio station (and it was YOUR film crew I’ll bet) so that we could all see your little pissant ravings on camera. I watch Channel 31’s morning show (well, I used to ... after today, nope) - they NEVER devote that much air time to a single story - since 31’s your sister station in Sacto, I’m sure this was all pre-arranged - especially since your own station was carrying the CBS national morning program.

This is not your ticket to national celebrity. I wish the moderators would lift the profanity rule for, oh, I don’t know, five minutes.

They have a new poll up people - KOVR 13 wants to know if it’s doings are harmful. Hee hee. They’re losing 12% to 88%.

You can tell I was confused that I had the station names correct.

It was the CBS morning TV crew and it's camera at the radio station begging for air-time with Rush like a spoiled little baby.

I can only imagine the profane diatribe after the camera was turned off.

Your analysis is dead on.
