Skip to comments.Dear President Obama: “We are not racists”
Posted on 03/09/2011 6:16:34 PM PST by bronkburnett
President Obama continued by telling his guests that race was probably "a key component in the rising opposition" to his presidency from conservatives, especially the right-wing activists in that Tea Party movement.
...The Tea Party movement has nothing to do with race. Its about out-of-control government spending and debt.
The Tea Party supported many of the 32 African-Americans who ran in 2010 for Congress as Republicans; the largest number since Reconstruction...In November 2009 Republican African-American candidate Charles Lollar addressed several hundred thousand Teapartiers at the US Capital. He said: Some are wondering why an African-American is speaking at a Tea Party gathering. Well Im NOT an African-American I am an American...Perhaps the most popular of all Teapartiers today in Congress is Republican African-American Col Alan West. In response to charges of racism in the Tea Party, West has stated: "The Tea Party is a constitutional, conservative grassroots movement and thats it the Tea Party stands for three things: they want to see effective, efficient constitutional government, they stand for national security, and they stand for free market, free enterprise solutions. Thats it."
Teapartiers have earlier been called racists by the likes of Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann and others in the media. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have cast more subtle but still offensive aspersions. I hope that President Obama has been mis-quoted in Walshs book, that he understands Teapartiers are not racially motivated, and that he will now use his bully-pulpit to put an end to these despicable and totally unfounded accusations.

Dear prezobama kiss my Lilly-white buttocks.
Given that your groups of felons and marshmallow major flunkouts love the use of “phobia”, I regretfully admit that I have “idiot-phobia”, which means that I am very, very afraid of liberals - who, by thought and action - have proved themselves to be the best fit of the term “idiot”.

It’s fine to offer evidence refuting the racism charge, but it’s time to come back with both barrels and show all 57 states - in no uncertain terms - the shameful racism this clown always has had and always will have.
0bama should be fed a daily dose of his own medicine so as to force him to ‘prove’ he is not a blasted racist. Which, of course, he won’t be able to.
Barack Obama was sent an email from me during the 2008 election. It outlined his lies, misstatements and omissions during the 2008 campaign. Other people posted it on web sites and some estimates were that 10 million people read it.
General Colin Powell read my email to Barack Obama and sent me a personal letter on October 26, 2008. He made no defense for Obamas misstatements and lies. He made no comments about the specific details in the email to Obama. Instead, General Powells letter to me included these two comments:
The email is the usual anecdotal, out of context attacks, rather than a serious attempt to help the American people understand the issues.
Yes, 95 percent of blacks will vote for Obama. Maybe you should be asking why?
... Martin Luther King spoke about the day when people would be judged by their character, not their color. Well, we also need to be free to judge people on their competence and on results, and its high time that Americas blacks started saying this out loud (Prelutsky).
When General Powell announced his endorsement for Barack Hussein Obama, he also spent time disparaging Sarah Palin. While he said in his letter to me that attacks of Obamas character and experience were anecdotal, he went on the attack of Sarah Palin about those same anecdotal items. So it seems that to me that General Powell practiced a double standard: one for the black candidate that did not include scrutiny of his experience and character and then one for the white female candidate that did. That double standard is racism. It is not equality.
It appears to me that General Powell and the liberal media/entertainment/education cartel did not want America to focus on what should be the number one issue in hiring someonecharacter. Instead, they did exactly the opposite of Martin Luther King, Jr.s dream. They did not let America judge Obama on his character. They helped distract us.
Can you imagine if 95 percent of whites had voted for McCain? All the media and General Powell would have screamed that it was based on race. So why did 95 percent of blacks vote for Obama? Why did Powell really switch a lifetime relationship with the war hero McCain to endorse the inexperienced and unethical Obama? And why is it acceptable if 95 percent of blacks to vote for the black guy but it is racism if 95 percent of whites to vote for the white guy?
Well, racial discrimination is alive and well in America. It is being fostered by white and black liberal tyrants for their own political power in the name of political correctness and social justice.
Political correctness is just a means to secure power for the exploiters.
In July, 2009, Barack Obama again revealed his real self. Responding to a question from his media pals at a press conference at the White House, Obama made a comment concerning a white officer of the Cambridge police force. The officer had arrested Professor Gates, a black professor at Harvard, for disorderly conduct. Gates is a close friend of Obama and was also previously affiliated with Acorn. Obama jumped to the immediate conclusion that the officer reacted stupidly despite the admission by Obama that he was not really familiar with the facts. All evidence shows that the white officer acted correctly and it was the black professor who acted wrongly.
Two days later, after an uproar by millions of Americans, especially law enforcement, Obama still refused to apologize for his comment even though all evidence showed that the professor was the wrong doer and that he even used the race card. Instead, Obama invited the professor and the officer to the White House for a beer and proclaimed that this was a teaching moment.
Huh? What does that mean? Teaching moment for whom? It was Obama who jumped to an incorrect conclusion. It was the black professor who used the race card and yelled obscenities at the officer.
Rather than accept responsibility, Obama acted like he was a mediator between Gates and the officer. He deflected the criticism towards himself and once again the media let him do it.
This was reminiscent of the spring of 2008 when Obama refused to fess up to his 20 year affiliation with Reverand Wright. Instead, Obama went on television to deliver a monolog about race. It was a one sided presentation, not a dialog, that shot a shiver up the leg of Chris Matthews. It was another teaching moment where Obama portrayed himself above the fray of a black vs. white situation even though he once again was the cause of the situation.
Rather than accept responsibility about his affiliation with Reverend Wright, Obama deflected the criticism towards himself and once again the media let him do it.
Obama has been using the race card his entire life. Just like Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Reverend Wright, he exploits an intolerance or hatred for the white race. That intolerance is racism. They are all racists. None of them believe in equal opportunity. They want affirmative action. And the media is letting them all do it in the name of political correctness social justice.
That is not equality. That is racism. They are racists.
Why do you say it’s ‘fraud’?
Pure cowardice. As a matter of fact, I'll put forth the proposition that you were elected because of race, engineered by the mass media and your own party.
This Tea Party member doesn't vote because of race. I vote for ideas. If they are good.
Your Democratic Party used you; They didn't care about qualifications. The leadership there (Reid, Pelosi, etc. chose someone with no experience, cynically expecting that they would be your puppeteer.
That's racist to the core.
Condense it. Thanks :)
What “fraud” do you accuse me of?
If everyone was a racist li8ke the great leader, nobama, and his loser-leftist minions say, he’d be picking cotton or worse. nobama is such a self-loathing, race-baiting putz.
It’s great to have an excuse. Racism is a good one.
Reminds me of a girl I knew in college. She was not well liked (understatement) but claimed that other girls were jealous of her because she was so pretty.
Wrong approach. Challenge the very idea of “racism”, expose its history (to the USSR’s propaganda machine), otherwise you are playing their game.
Racism is one of those crimes that liberals continually accuse conservatives of doing while they are the ones who continually emphasize race.
I am a member of the Tea Party of West Michigan. I am not prejudiced...I HATE EVERY COMMUNIST F#CK EQUALLY, INCLUDING THE COMMUNIST MUSLIM KENYAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE. The communist losers in this country are a bunch of pot-smoking, plant-loving, flag-burning, Muslim loving, granola-munching, lazy-assed PUSSIES.
I try to hate everybody too;) Darn racist.
No need to hold back, Patriot. We're allowed to express our feelings here.
That race card is dog-eared, flimsy, and worn out. The left needs to obtain a new license from the DMV. Department of Methodized Victimhood.
I see. I just had not really read anything on the piece of filth having arabic (or not having arabic) in his geneology. His name is not his birth name but changed to what it is now. I’ve noticed many who convert to Islam/muslim change their names to an arabic name so a name is not an accurate indicator of descent.
Thanks for the response.
Dear prezobama kiss my Lilly-white buttocks.
His “putative” mother. :) I can’t argue with skeptics in general, being one and all...
