Democrats in rural strongholds refuse to give backing to Obama (White Racism)
Guardian (UK) ^ | June 8, 2008 | Paul Harris

Posted on 06/08/2008 8:41:42 AM PDT by Eurale

Johnny Telvor was not happy about Barack Obama becoming the Democratic presidential nominee. Not happy at all. Standing outside the sturdy courthouse in the sweltering heat of a West Virginia afternoon in the small town of Williamson, Telvor smoked a cigarette and bluntly gave his opinion of Obama's historic mission to be America's first black president. 'We'll end up slaves. We'll be made slaves just like they was once slaves,' he said. Telvor, a white Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton in West Virginia's primary, said he planned to vote for Republican John McCain in November. 'At least he's an American,' he added with a disarmingly friendly smile.

They’re already working the ref. If we fail to elect Obama, it’s because the U.S. is a racist country.

Not everyone should be allowed to vote. Folks like this are why we end up with the Jimmy Carter's and Bill Clinton's we get, as well as a majority of idiots in Congress elected over and over again.

Considering that we ended up with Juan McCainez as the GOP nominee, seems like we have a few of 'em in the GOP also.

Robert Heinlein, our nation turns it's lowly eyes to you.

Yes, the blacks are very critical thinkers — racism never enters into their analysis of what is important to America and its freedoms and liberty. If Jim Jones was running for President, he would have many KOOL-AID drinkers....on a grand scale.

What is the difference between a plantation w/slaves and Cuba? Nothing. Progressives want servitude to the government, and it has nothing to do with race.

Actually, Obama is an American only in the legal sense. His sentiments, his values (such as they are), and his wimpy world view are pure European. It is little wonder that he is so popular in Europe and among the far Left of the Democrat Party that wishes the US would emulate Europe in all things. So the man quoted is correct about Obama. Obama is ashamed of this nation. He associates with those who hate the US (his expediently former Reverend Wright and his buddy Bill Ayers (the unapologetic former terrorists) are both good examples of those close to him who either bomb the US or call upon God to damn this country). His own wife from her own mouth says she only became proud of the US when it elevated her husband. That's saying a lot for a woman who graduated from an Ivy league school. So while the Guardian will try to make the rural people, whom Obama has cynically said cling to God and guns out of despair, look like racist yokels they're actually wise to not see him as a true American.

They already have. That’s at least a part of the reason why these white Democrats won’t be voting for Obama. They grew tired of being called racist for even suggesting that Hillary might have been a better choice. And I believe that this will happen with the general electorate as well as the attempt to silence legitimate inquiry into Obama’s record with shrieks of RACIST!! kicks into full gear. After all, this is a racist country, right?

The blue dog is right to have this fear. The legal system's PC hardrive is tilted and is racist...against working whites. Business owners are fearful of lawsuits from minorities. If a blue dog is in a conflict with a minority at work, he either has to do what the minority member tells him to do (basically a slave) or kiss his job goodbye.

It is going to be ridiculous by the time it is over.

Look for re-plays of every movie ever made about racism all over the channels soon.

Every report on racism from the 60’s and 70’s to be re-played and endless articles on racsism from the MSM.

It is all so predictable....sadly.

Ignorance can't be found in cities? Ha! I beg to differ. This man's ref to becoming slaves is not far off the mark if ANY of the present candidates become Pres. Frankly, I call loss of freedoms, excessive taxes, and global courts to try Americans, slavery.

The man was not asked what he meant.I believe he may have meant Obama would give whites what he considers their due for ever owning slaves here. From some of Obama's quotes in his book "Dreams of My Father", that sounds likely.

As for the older man who said he would sit out because he could not vote for Obama and his father/grandfather would turn over in the grave if he voted Republican, is typical of many generational southern Dems. They just cannot get it into their minds that southern Repubs are about where southern Dems were in earlier generations

The Guardians posting of Obama's policies sounded pretty good---BUT IT IS JUST RHETORIC. He hasn't yet told us what the meaning of "is" is.

Any questioning, much less criticism, will be labeled racism.

....”The United States, they have argued, is finally prepared to elect a black president and absolve its historic sins of slavery and Jim Crow.”

....that’s how a lot of self hating whites see it....they figure a vote for Obama is absolution for their whiteness....I wish I could tell them what happened in ‘84 when Charlotte voters put an inexperianced black man in the mayor’s office....his true colors finally came out when he flipped a minority carve-out broadcast license.

I disagree with calling them idiots. For many generations the backwoods people of WV worked for primarily “Republican” coal mine owners who disregarded safety and working conditions. As a result, these people became hard core Dems and unionists. Much of that has changed now, but since GOP was synonymous with “coal boss” for so long, there is still a lot of distrust. For Obama to override that distrust shows how extreme he is.

"But the uglier truth is that part of white America remains secretly - or sometimes openly - deeply distrustful of the idea of a black president."

Part of a basic truth here in America is being missed. This fear or distrust is being called racist...but it is actually a fear of the tilted system leaving them behind in the dust. The legal system here is prejudice against them. True some of them are racist but most are just fighting for survival on the ground. They are fighting for their jobs and their families.

Most of us here worked hard in school or our businesses in our younger years to provide for our families and had good fortune as a result. These guys didn't do so well for whatever reason, immaturity or maybe a lack of IQ. But whatever the reason they are correct to assume that no one is looking out for them from either party. The minorities have the Dems wrapped up and the Blue dogs have nothing but the false promises left to look forward to. I try to put myself in their shoes. What would I do if I found myself in a low paying job and had to be a slave boy to minorities who play the race card to an employer and a judge at every turn?

Yes there is still racism in America...but is it what it used to be?

Let’s see Barack Obama attended a racist black church for years and the people that don’t want to vote for him are racist? He also has terrorist as friends, wants to gut our military and has the most liberal voting record in the senate. If the war wasn’t so damn unpopular Obama would lose in a landslide.

You responded with saying “Not everyone should be allowed to vote. “

You seem to forget that Socialism = Slavery.

That’s what he was on about - Obama is a socialist, and he and his allies are out to enslave the People. All of them.

All Socialists are slavers. And for them your comment is true- the ones who should not be allowed to vote are the ones whose platform is for enslavement. Such as National Socialists (Nazis), International Socialists (Communists), Monarchists, and others hostile to our Constitutional Republic.

Nope. Everyone missed my point (evidently my fault). I agree Socialism = Slavery. Idiot is upset because Obama is the nominee but as a demoncrat has been perfectly happy voting for the other socialists that would (and have tried to) implement the same agenda. Hence, he’s an idiot as are all people who vote to give away their liberty.
