Racist Groups Eye Boost If Obama Elected
WNBC ^ | August 8, 2008

Posted on 08/08/2008 11:20:58 AM PDT by cdchik123

PEARL, Miss. -- They're not exactly rooting for him, but prominent white supremacists anticipate a boost to their cause if Barack Obama becomes the first black president.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, of Louisiana, said Democrat Obama would be a "visual aid" to the idea that whites have lost control of America.

The black supremacists want him to loose, and the white supremacists want him to win. Barry, you have problems.

America is ready for a black president but not Obama. If we elect this idiot into office he's going to be our last black president. Maybe even our last president period. It will be a major blow to civil rights.

Of course these white sheet s**t heads don't remember some of our worst presidents were also white.

It’s interesting that whereas we’re supposed to ignore Jeremiah Wright and his close friendship with Obama, the KKK reaction to a black man possibly winning the Presidency is all the MSM wants to talk about.

These sheetheads put the word idiot in useful idiot, except they aren't useful. The good thing is that David Duke, Bill White and their ilk are so into inbreeding, their racist butts future generations won't be around to bug us.

I agree. I’m part black and am saddened that we have such an inexperienced candidate that will mess things up for this country. Everyone knows Colin Powell would be elected in a landslide and would probably be a good President. If Obama loses it will be because OBAMA HAS ONE YEAR IN THE SENATE before running.

“.....While most Americans have little or no direct contact with white supremacists, organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center keep close tabs; the law center estimates some 200,000 people nationwide are active in such groups....”

200,000 / 300,000,000 = .067%

Yeah, we are so dominated by racists in this country.

If Obama wins, their numbers could swell to 1%.

Now this is Racists: Give an Nutbag an inch and we wind up where we’re at now.

Toby Keith, “Beer for my Horses”

Well a man come on the 6 o’clock news
said somebody’s been shot
somebody’s been abused
somebody blew up a building
somebody stole a car
somebody got away
somebody didn’t get to far yeah
they didn’t get to far

Grand pappy told my pappy back in my day, son
A man had to answer for the wicked that he’d done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street
For all the people to see

That
Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon
And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing
whiskey for my man, beer for my horses

We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds
too much corruption and crime in the streets
It’s time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground
Send ‘em all to their maker and he’ll settle ‘em down
You can bet he’ll set ‘em down

Cause
Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon
And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing
whiskey for my man, beer for my horses
whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

He knew
Justice is the one thing you should always find
You got to saddle up your boys,
You got to draw a hard line
When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon
And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces
Singin’ whiskey for my man, beer for my horses
Singing whiskey for my man, beer for my horses

I'm a lot more concerned about the damage that black and latino gangs are doing to our inner cities than I am about an ever-shrinking white supremicist population. This is more of the typically race-obsessed work of the media, and gives a major clue as to why newspapers are dying.

EXACTLY! I can only imagine how clueless this guy really is on the issues. Reminds me of the 2004 debates with Al Sharpton and what he said about the Fed reserve and IMF. He probably has better intuition and political knowledge than the Obamination.

Historically they were originally the armed wing of the Democratic Party. They made their bones murdering Republicans in the south.

They have always been Democrats. “One” tried to run in recent years as a Repub and was hounded out by other Repubs. Traditionally they were always Democrats.

Democrat senator Byrd was a Klan recruiter back in his younger days.

They were founded by the dimocRATS to counter the advancement of blacks under Republican administrations in the South.

Reminds me of the 2004 debates with Al Sharpton and what he said about the Fed reserve and IMF.
JENNINGS: Reverend Sharpton, I'd like to ask you a question about domestic policy, if you don't mind.

If during your term as president, if you become the nominee, and you have the opportunity to nominate someone to be chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, what kind of person would you consider for the job? You can name someone in particular, if you have someone in mind.

And maybe just take a minute or so to give us a little bit about your views on monetary policy.

SHARPTON: Well, first of all, let me say this. I wanted to say to Governor Dean, don't be hard on yourself about hooting and hollering. If I had spent the money you did and got 18 percent, I'd still be in Iowa hooting and hollering.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

SHARPTON: So, don't worry about it, Howard.

(LAUGHTER)

DEAN: Thanks, Reverend.

SHARPTON: I think, first of all, we must have a person at the Monetary Fund that is concerned about growth of all, not setting standards that would, in my judgment, protect some and not elevate those that cannot, in my view, expand and come to the levels of development and the levels of where we need to be.

I think part of my problem with how we're operating at this point is that the IMF and the policies that are emanating there do not lead to the expansion that is necessary for our country and our global village to rise to levels that underdeveloped countries and those businesses in this country can have the development policies necessary.

JENNINGS: Forgive me, Reverend Sharpton, but the question was actually about the Federal Reserve Board.

SHARPTON: I thought you said IMF, I'm sorry.

JENNINGS: No, I'm sorry, sir. And what you'd be looking for in a chairman of the Federal Reserve Board.

SHARPTON: Oh, in the Federal Reserve Board, I would be looking for someone that would set standards in this country, in terms of our banking, our — in how government regulates the Federal Reserve as we see it under Greenspan, that we would not be protecting the big businesses; we would not be protecting banking interests in a way that would not, in my judgment, lead toward mass employment, mass development and mass production.

I think that — would I replace Greenspan, probably. Do I have a name? No.

HUME: Thank you, Reverend Sharpton. Thanks very much.

We've got to take a brief break here, but we will be back with more questions for the seven Democratic candidates. Stay tuned.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)
That was simply breathtakingly stupid, but Jennings and the media gave him a pass on it. He should have had his fat nose rubbed in his own stupidity. He heard the question was about the Federal Reserve.

Good points. The black and latino gangs have made wastelands out of big parts of many cities. But we’re not supposed to think about that, at least not in racial/ethnic terms, according to the politically correct crowd. Instead we’re told that there’s a lack of opportunity in cities, which creates fertile ground for gangs. And then the problem gets blamed on Bush and Repbulicans and capitalism passing by inner city areas.

Yes, the gangs of America are a bigger threat to all of us than the shrinking white supremacist groups.

The Democratic Party is more complicated than most people realize. And the whole left/right paradigm is not as useful a tool as people think.

Just remember. The Democratic Party was the party that backed slavery, and Jim Crow race repression right up into the modern era. They were the lynch mobs, and the guys with the firehoses going after the blacks; they were the klan night-riders burning down churches and killing people right up into the modern era.

The Repubs were born as the abolition party, and opposed Jim Crow all during the bad old days. During most of history, they were the only party that would accept black membership, which is why the klan was necessary to repress black political activity. The Repubs were the ones who finally broke down the door on Jim Crow; it was the Democratic Party that finally changed their position on the subject.

They’ve tried to re-write history since then. You can’t blame them.

David Duke is certainly a nut job, but he has done nothing to my knowledge worthy of lynching or incarceration. Fortunately, America permits individuals to have all sorts of beliefs, even beliefs we might abhor.

A nation that will incarcerate or lynch Duke for his beliefs, may soon come after you.

I was actually thinking about how he went to Iran, an enemy country and gave them aid and comfort during their holocaust denial fest. I want to also add that I read awhile back that he and Rich Butler made some pro terrorist remarks during 9/11.

“Read how minority friendly the Indiana republicans were in the 1920s.”

While you’re at it read on how minority friendly the Alabama Democrats were in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

You know - “Segregation Today, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever!” and a governor standing in the door at the University of Alabama to prevent black students from attending.

All racists at their heart, are all collectivists. They often try to cozy up to the right because they are pro-second amendment, but they very much are leftists in that they are anti-individualist (instead, labeling everyone and limiting people based on labels) and collectivist (redistributing assets based on race).

Don't even go there. Both sides have their skeletons in the closet with respect to race relations whether you're talking about Indiana Republicans in the 1920's or Alabama Democrats in the 1960's under Gov. George C. Wallace.

Democrats won't admit their complicity in Jim Crow, and yet have the audacity to rub the GOP's nose in it.
