Skip to comments.The Lesson of an Affirmative Action President

You don't pick brain surgeons by the color of their skin. You pick them by competence only. Same thing with airplane pilots. But we have allowed the profoundly irrational liberal media to persuade the American public that we are supposed to pick a U.S. president by affirmative action. Obama was elected to universal Hosannas because he is black. It wasn't a secret. That's why the Left around the world went into ecstasies when Obama ran and got elected. We've been using affirmative action to hire and promote teachers and cops and to popularize movie stars and media heroes. We've had a generation of affirmative action agitprop, 24/7/365. Hillary Clinton was going to dictate racial and gender preferences for medical school admissions under HillaryCare. You can bet that reverse-racism is all over the 2,200 pages of ObamaCare. It's reverse-racism forever!
Affirmative action was allowed by the Supreme Court as a temporary exception to the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution until blacks had the same opportunities others did. It has now been about forty years, and the goal posts have just moved farther and farther Left. Today it's not just blacks -- it's women, homosexuals, and illegal aliens. And it's no longer equality of opportunity, but equality of outcome, which was the goal of Communism for seventy years in the Soviet Union, until the whole Soviet Empire crumbled as a result.
In the Soviet Union, everything was politicized. Incompetent people ran agriculture along Stalinist lines. Everything turned into a lie, and lies accelerated as they propagated through the system, in exactly the way the Climategate lies get worse and worse as they get passed along by politically correct bureaucrats and scientists. When political loyalty controls the outcomes, honesty and competence are driven out at every level of society.

So someone is finally putting in print what millions of those not under Swami Obama’s spell have been saying for 2 years.
I love that picture. Some FReeper asked “what is the little girl holding onto” and another wrote back “the stimulus package?”
No mincing of words here. Great post.
See the “Will Smith wants to be in the WH” posting. Same moronic line of thinking by the gullible libtards.
Indeed, I have seen Mr. Obama. He is not black, he is kind of warm brown. I did not vote for him because he was brown even though in the summer I am about the same color. I did not vote for him because he is a far left liberal His actions have shown me that his brown is only skin deep for he is a bright red socialist/communist under that light brown veneer.
That also is the ace up the slicksters sleeves to ensure they win every election in the future.
As if their Chicago/ACORN cheating wasn't enough, they want millions more voters that can be counted on to vote for the candidates that promise to take money from those who earn it and redistribute it to them.
Stopping so-call "Immigration Reform"/Amnesty is as important as stopping socialized medicine.
