Obama Camp Rejects New Black Panther Party Endorsement After Removing Web Posting (got caught again)
fox news ^ | 3/20/2008 | fox news

Posted on 03/20/2008 8:27:43 AM PDT by tobyhill

Barack Obama’s campaign has rejected the support of the New Black Panther Party, after removing an endorsement by the group from its Web site Wednesday.

Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor issued a statement rejecting the Panther backing, and told FOXNews.com: “The page in question has been removed from our campaign Web site. It’s our policy with any content generated by a group that advocates violence.”

The blogosphere was buzzing Wednesday about whether his campaign planned to remove the Panther posting, just one day after the Illinois senator delivered a speech calling for improved race relations in America.

The New Black Panthers, who inherited their name from the Black Panther Party of the 1960s, had the page on the Obama campaign’s public forums. The group’s message said it is backing Obama because he “represents ‘positive change’ for all of America. Obama will stir the ‘Melting Pot’ into a better ‘Molten America.’”

I wonder who Robert KKK Byrd supports? KKK Byrds a uniter and NBPP Berack (middle name can't say) Obama is a uniter.

exemption for blacks from the all-volunteer U.S. military and a separate country for African-Americans.

If it's an all volunteer army why do you need an exemption idiot.

How long was it up?

That’s the question.

And how many click-throughs did the link to the NBP site get through Obama’s site?

What’s the problem? Hillary defended the Old Black Panthers from murder charges. Seems like the “new” group isn’t as bad as the old ones were.

If you listen to the perpetually aggrieved,

blacks have no choice, even with an all volunteer force, but to join the armed forces,

because they have no other opportunities...

bwaaaaa!

I’ve been trying to find out how long this endorsement was on Obama’s website before it was finally noticed and pulled. I haven’t been able to find anything regarding that. Does anybody on FR know when this was first published on Obama’s website?

I believe it was Charley Rangel, when pushing for a draft, that brought up the canard of “no other opportunities”.

I’m not sure but they were ranked on his donation chart so that could be a way to find out at least when they started donating.

"I wonder who Robert KKK Byrd supports?"

Byrd himself probably supports the white half of Obama, but the KKK in him condemns the black half.

Can you imagine though how much trouble he must have voting? I mean he shakes so much, that whether he flips a lever, fills out a mail-in ballot, or has to use a touch-screen, this guy's in trouble, and probably never ends up voting for the actual person he wanted to.

The Panthers like him and so does “Calypso Louie”. That should be enough for any reasonable person to proclaim BHO unfit for public office, at any level, and in any position.

Period.

My word, I’m really being forthright today!

It doesn’t matter what is on his website, for, just like his church’s website, it will be scrubbed clean for the world to see while who-knows-what kind of deals and handshakes are going on under the radar.

It was more than likely posted on a public forum, meaning anyone, even you or I could post there. And we could post anything we want. This is a non-story. Sorry. I’m not defending the senator formerly known as Barry. What I’m trying to say is if we wanted to stir up controversy it would be relatively easy to do because we could take on an alias (much like we do here) and post whatever we wanted to.

What a pickle Bollix Obama has put himself into over the last week. Every move he now makes to distance himself from certain black elements turns him more white in their eyes.

LOL!

Extending Obama's "spiritual advisor's" belief that Jesus was Black and continuing his Church's foundational "Black Theology" doctrine of James Cone whereby God is manifested in the Black race..... I guess Obama is now BETRAYING GOD by trying to reject the appearance of any associations with the "Black Liberation" movement.

LOL!!!

Barry’s site has monitors.

Those monitors chose to leave the link up.

Any link to a racist/violence/seditious site posted on FR would be GONE in a matter of minutes.

As opposed to any group that advocates government-mandated wealth redistribution (taxation) at ungodly confiscatory levels.

It was posted directly on the “Obama for America” website which is controlled by Obama’s campaign and if it was that easy to pull it off by the campaign then it had to have gone through the campaign in the first place to be posted.

“It’s our policy with any content generated by a group that advocates violence.”

ahhh - then how did it get posted in the first place? If that was your policy, it wouldn't have made it through that criteria.

Anyone know how long it was on?

Good on FOX - they don't seem to be dropping this "O" stuff

We need to also FREEP them with the speech he made to the conclave of black ministers where he alludes, thinly veiled, the 'Quiet Riot" that is still simmering today just as the "Quiet Riot" was simmering before the Rodney King riots....

"Quiet Riot" = code word for???/

"Obama Warns Of 'Quiet Riot' Among Blacks"

http://cbs2chicago.com/topstories/Obama.Blacks.Quiet.2.337535.html

This is vital to get out to the people. This points to plans for all out riots across this land once they get the power -

In will repost these for direct link so you dont' have to copy paste - and how about email adds for Gretta (I can't stand her - but is covering this every night) and Laura Ingram et al - ? Anyone got 'the list?

I doubt it - they don't need now to take the chance that these can be traced back to their camp - it would neutralize it. She's better off staying out of it at this point.

Let's give credit to the guys at FOX that are on top of this - digging in and reporting.

Absolutely re the money.

Where did all of Obama’s money come from?

From al Qaeda backers?

From Opecker Princes and thugs?

From George $oreA$$?

From other hate America organizations like the Black Panthers.
