Democrats Sense Racism Is Driving Obama Critics
Politics Daily ^ | 9/14/09 | Dave Sessions

Posted on 09/14/2009 11:48:51 AM PDT by pissant

As public outrage in some parts of the country against President Obama seems to grow louder by the week, some Democrats believe that his sharpest critics are driven by racism. At a fall gathering of the Democratic National Committee in Austin, several Democrats expressed dismay with the anger exploding mostly from white Americans, such as the tens of thousands who marched on the nation's capital Saturday. African-American lawmakers like Texas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson say the tone of the president's critics increasingly suggests what is motivating their vitriol.

"It's hurting the spirit of this country," Johnson said, expressing worry about what outsiders might think of large portions of the country behaving as if the president of the United States were illegitimate. "As far as African-Americans are concerned, we think most of it is [racism]." Politico notes that Johnson had a "warm personal relationship" with George W. Bush and is known for her ability to set aside partisan differences.

At a "tea party" in Washington on Sept. 12, many conservative protesters made clear that their anger was with "big government" and not exclusively with Obama. Most said they had come to protest a government that has been encroaching on their freedoms long before Obama took office, though many mixed their political angst with strong personal animosity toward the president.

Nope. Rush was talking about this today. The ONLY reason they are talking up racism is because they are losing. The tea parties, and the protests are having a huge impact. They are on the defensive and have hauled out the racist page from the democRAT playbook.

I hope ObamaCare is defeated and I hope the phony concept of racism is driven from the countries lexicon. Of course, a lot of “civil rights” organizations use the boogeyman of “racism” to gain a lot of cash so it’s never going to completely go away.

Looks like we have another headline template:

1) "Muslims offended by ____________"
2) "Democrats see racism in _________________"

They seem to be doing their best to make racism a reality. You know, if every opposition, every failure to buy the Obama line is cast as racist, some will say: “Ok, I’m racist”.

While it seems to be a simple thing, it could lead to real racism, the kind Democrats seem to have perfected.

There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

No, that's: Democrats Want To Believe Racism is Driving Obama Critics.

When the Democrats play the racism card, it's because they can't come up with any coherent defense of Obama.

Rather than refute a critic of Obama with facts or reason, it's much more convenient to simply accuse the critic of racism.

And the enabling State-Run Media just laps it up, with no questions.

Doesn’t matter what the criticism is it will always be about race.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/13/AR2009091302538.html?wprss=rss_metro

Alan Sims, 38, is a home improvement contractor. He supports Obama and the changes he’s advocating, but he said criticism comes with the job. Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, he said, was judged harshly by black Americans because he is white.

“Race is always,” Sims said, “going to be a factor in American politics.”

Hmmmm....wonder which parts?

"It's hurting the spirit of this country," Johnson said, expressing worry about what outsiders might think of large portions of the country behaving as if the president of the United States were illegitimate.

No, it's invigorating the spirit of our country and it's about high time.

"As far as African-Americans are concerned, we think most of it is [racism]."

Oh, you think everything is racism, you whiner. No, it's an aversion to the Communism and corruption. Dig?

(Methinks these Obamunists are getting a tad nervous.)

I am so glad that's been pointed out. You know, in the aftermath of the 2000 election, it was such a relief that none of the Democrats ever suggested that President Bush might be illegitimate.... (said sarcastically)

Projection. Pure projection.

It's sad to think that people believe that. Yeah, we'd support trillion dollar budgets, trillion dollar pork spending bills, socialized health care, card check, cap-and-trade, etc etc if only he were white.

That would be hundreds of thousands, and in fact the Dems aren't "dismayed" by anything, they're trying to accuse their opposition of it. And by the way, the reason the protestors were "mostly" white is that America is. Better get used to it, folks.

Texas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson showed up at a "hate crime" march in DC and proclaimed there were 20 or 30 white supremists organizations in Jasper, TX, after the dragging death of James Byrd, Jr. and there isn't sufficient population there to support one group.

Texas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson is another Liberal Black liar...therefore, a racist, IMO!

I'm sorry, but which party was the first to appoint not one, but two African Americans as Secretaries-of-State?

I'm sorry, but which party always drags out the race card when their arguments are losing on the merrits?

Libs are concerned by what they see as a large number of whites opposed to Obummer.

Well when you consider that 90% of blacks march in lockstep with Obummer, of course the majority opposed will be white. BTW all me conservative black friends don’t like Obummer, are they racist too?

As I said in another thread, this is simply one more brazen attempt to intimidate people who have legitimate criticisms about Obama into keeping quiet. The idea is scare people into believing that if they criticize Obama, they will be labeled as racists. These people also want to send independents who don’t follow politics closely the message that the popular uprising is race based on not legitimate.

Disgusting but typical of the liberals.
