Is he saying Obama is gay or black voters are inherently homophobic?

Via Beltway Confidential:

On MSNBC this morning, liberal political activist Van Jones said that President Obama wouldn’t lose support from the black community even if he came out as gay.

During a segment on gay marriage, anchor Alex Witt asked Jones if Obama, “would lose some of the black vote if he did come out in support of gay marriage.”

“I think if he came out as gay, he wouldn’t lose the black vote,” Jones said with a chuckle. “President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

That’s the understatement of the century.

100% of straight men and lesbian women throw better than that.

95% of straight women and gay men throw better than that.

“Obama could rape and kill a white woman on the steps of the White House and his favorability rating amongst blacks wouldn’t dip below 60%.”

Unfortunately, if Obama was the Democrat nominee, he could rape and kill a *black* woman on the steps of the White House and still carry the black vote on Election Day.

I hope that will change some day, and we are taking baby steps to unshackle black voters from the Democrat Party that has abused them for so long (we cannot underestimate the importance of Congressman Tim Scott, as well as Allen West and (hopefully joining them in Congress next year) Michael Williams), being on TV as thoughtful, unabashedly conservative Republican voices that will prove to black voters that being a Republican won't give you vitiligo), but we'll have to wait for Obama to leave office for that to happen.

Isn’t that racism? When people, who ever they are, vote for the color of the skin rather than anything else.

..secondly: Obama could rape and kill a white woman on the steps of the White House and his favorability rating amongst blacks wouldn’t dip below 60%.

Remember the cheering when OJ got off the first time? Liberals were surprised that blacks would cheer a murderer getting off for killing his white wife. I doubt many of us were surprised.

Liberals are soooooooo gullible.

On MSNBC this morning, liberal political activist Van Jones said that Resident zer0 wouldn’t lose support from the black community even if he came out as gay.

“Resident zer0 is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

Thanks, Vel. Does this comment by Van Jones acknowledge zer0 is gay? Or is my imagination working overtime?

"Van Jones: “If Obama Came Out As Gay He Still Wouldn’t Lose The Black Vote”… "

For those of you scoring at home, in politicalspeak, the above is what is known as a "trial balloon"....

He could have shot Trayvon Martin and he would not lose the black vote.

Why would he be gay when he can come home to this every night?

1. A Freudian slip me thinks.

2. An admission that blacks are homophobes and haters.

“He doesn’t have one drop of blood from being a descendent of slaves but has 43.25% of arab blood”
____________________________________________

I do not know about the Arab blood.
His Kenyan father and family look pretty sub-Saharan negro
to me, and I do not think there were any slaves in his ancestry.
Were they Muslims?
I assume that his mother was just a typical American radical leftist hippie.
