Skip to comments.Is McCain Resorting To Racial Attacks? (NPR filth)
Posted on 10/10/2008 4:11:34 PM PDT by Drango
In the final lap of the U.S. presidential race some believe Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) attacks against Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) character have gone too far and, for some, are even racist.
McCain was sharply criticized after the debate between the two candidates at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., for referring to Obama as "that one" a reference that many interpreted as racially loaded.
Our weekly Political Chat takes on this issue as well as apparent attempts by the McCain campaign to de-Americanize Obama. McCain surrogates have taken to drawing attention to Obama's middle name, Hussein a tactic that plays into racist assumptions that Obama is a Muslim with anti-American leanings, according to critics.
The McCain camp has also ratcheted up Obama's association with William Ayers, a former member of the Weather Underground Organization, a 1960s radical group that bombed government buildings.
CNN anchor Campbell Brown, Chicago Sun Times columnist Mary Mitchell, and activist and journalist Asra Nomani join the discussion

NPR will claim they just asking...but in reality they are serving as the propaganda wing of the DNC. The filthy comments their listeners post below the article are the same you would see on DU and DKOS. Shame on NPR.
Next time smarmy Katies asks “some people say you are a racist” or other similar crapola Sarah Palin should lean in and say “Which people? I’ll go have a talk with them.”
I hope so....
“Some say” with the press means “we say.” Oldest tactic they practice.
Mary Mitchell is the most racist, bigoted person on the face of the earth.
Why is NPR run by wife beaters?
"Some say" those who work at NPR who are not wife beaters may be pedophiles. /sarc
Islam is not a race, however muslims do believe that kufir (non-muslims) are lesser animals (the offspring of pigs and monkeys), undeserving of equal rights and protectionsunder the laws of Islamic nations.
Also there are plenty of pinko white liberals who are anti-American. Believing someone to be anti-American does not mean that "race" is a factor in that assumption.
His book discusses him taking on such topics in dorm discussions while at college (seeking leftists and Marxists, as HE identified them).
NPR. We’re paying for this trash, folks.
I wouldn’t pay too much attention to that network: THAT ONE.
That One is racially loaded? They are grasping at straws!!!!!
Of course "some believe" in this crap.
Care to guess who those "some" are?
TO: author of this crap piece:....
Do you still beat your wife?
Some of us think you do!
“that one” a reference that many interpreted as racially loaded.
I interpret NPR as fecally loaded.
Ok somebody needs to explain why “that one” is causing such a stir. I honestly thought it was in reference to Obama saying “I am the one we have been waiting for”. What am I missing?
Since they keep bringing this crap up, it seems as though they want it to happen. What a bunch of fools. If a race riot broke out it would most likely make them happy. Maybe this is what they are trying to promote.
Are they refering to HUSSIEN Obama as THAT ONE? Well they don’t want us to use his legal middle name, so what is the problem?
What racial attacks? They can view what McCain has said, as well as anyone else. My God, do these people have to make things up? We’re are in bad shape when we let charlatans say that anything is a “racist attack”.
this is an excerpt of a news story found on drudge
In Nairobi's largest slum Kibera, several groups have sprung in support of the Illinois senator and T-shirt vendors across the city are making a killing by selling tops bearing Obama's picture or name.
Obama is concerned about the youth, said Daniel Ochieng, the leader of a Kibera self-help group also doubling as a local Obama campaign machine under the moniker "Obama's Disciples."
He can help us more than an older candidate," he added, in an apparent reference to Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who is 72. Obama is 47.
T-shirt designer Tony Ndolo has sold 250 tops written "Ndio Tunaweza," Swahili version of Obama's campaign slogan "Yes We Can," in the last two weeks.
Rising from devastating post-election violence, some Kenyans warned against "rigging" Obama out of the presidential contest.
"If he (Obama) is beaten, he should be beaten fairly otherwise there will be chaos in the whole world," said Kibera resident Elias Juma, who says he is from the same village as Obama's Kenyan folks.
From what I have heard , husseinO is actullay not well liked in kenya because of his ties with Odinga and they hold Obama responsible for the post election violence
So I call BS on this story
McCain's misspoke - should've said "The One" instead of "That one".
