(Race Baiter) Bill Maher: Obama’s reelection is black America’s last hope
the daily caller ^ | 5/5/2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 05/05/2012 3:37:11 AM PDT by tobyhill

So, if President Barack Obama isn’t reelected, will the reputation of entire black race suffer from his electoral defeat?

On Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, Maher said a Romney win in November would reflect poorly on “black America” and help conservatives undermine America’s faith in black politicians.

“I think the second term for Obama is more important even than the first,” Maher said. “Obviously, it was important to get the first black president elected. But if the first black president only has one term, America reads that as a failure.

We don't read Obama as a failure; we know he is a failure. If I were a black man, I'd be sorely pissed that Obama is being propped up and covered for precisely because he is black - well, half-black, anyway. I'd be ashamed.

I think he has it exactly wrong. If he’s reelected, the race war will flare out of control. As violence against Whites escallates, with prosecution of those crimes going down, folks will take it into their own hands and “whittle away” at the threat. Any policies that foment the hate and anger of the leftist race-baiters cannot help but end up badly. They seem to feel that a sick-minded society will allow them to wipe Whites out without mounting a defense. I think they are in error.

With the token black Progressive, Blacks have no hope, period. Other than continuation of handouts and keeping them on The Plantation, Progressives have no way of keeping themselves on the Public Feeding Trough, themselves.

Reminds me of an old joke where a Black pastor was addressing his church. he was telling them that the Black folk had been oppressed long enough. It was time to take what was rightfully thiers. They would take White women at will. They would take what they wanted from grocry stores, they would show the world that they mattered, etc. He noticed a couple men sidling towards the door and hollered out to ask where they thought they were going. One said, “We’re leaving. You Black folks are going to get us Negroes killed”.

In a sense he’s right. When NYC’s mayor, David Dinkins, made a complete hash of his job and did not win reelection (Guiliani did), it set back black pols in NYC at least 25 years. Even the dullest New Yorker understood that black politicians were too pressured by their own interest group to govern effectively.

Most major polls (easily Googled)indicated that between 96 and 97% of blacks voted this fool in office. In my book, that is the race (even full employment is considered 95%).

Obama won because of racism, dogged liberalism and white guilt.

I cannot decide whether the powers that be want him re- elected or not. If he wins he must deal with Taxmaggedon and the most ominous portions of Obamacare. His policies ensure the next President will fail miserably. If this happens, I expect Screwy Louis to arrange his assassination to make him a martyr for Islam and the radical left. If he loses, the next President will most definitely fail, unless he is a miracle worker... we all know Romney is not that. He is simply another Capitulator in Chief. There is no possibility the next Prez will be successful with the timely and implosive policies in motion. Only the Supreme Court can provide a bit of breathing room. Unquestionably, Obama has been Uncle Sugar to Wall Street, the dow is completely disconnected from economics.

He has been given the internal poll data that shows what the Wapo wrote yesterday: Not only is Black and Hispanic registration DOWN not up since 2008, (Hispanic registration
took the biggest % drop in 40 years - INS anyone?) but the enthusiasm rates for both (Blacks - 48% and Hispanics 38%) are the stuff of nightmares for Obama.

I think he means AmeriKa reads that as a failure, because Americans know there is nothing worse then electing the Wrong person as president, not matter what the shade of their skin. If anything Obama is the wrong person plain and simple. But, I know liberals prefer specific racial descriptions so they know who is being talked about so to clarify for them, Obama is the Wrong black person to be president.

Maher’s grossly illogical rant sounds like what they used to say about Jackie Robinson: if Robinson had failed with the Dodgers, there’d be no black players in the majors. A lot of people firmly believe that yet. It would have been interesting if Herman Cain would have been the Pubbie nominee and John Edwards was the Dummy nominee, if Maher would have voted against Cain. Of course he would have, but it would have been interesting to see all the strange rhetorical twists and gyrations the libs would go through to tell us why they weren’t racists for voting against a black candidate. Some day that will happen, and I’ll have the popcorn ready.

Given that he is doing worse raising money than George Bush did 8 years ago, it appears to me that the people with money don’t want him to be reelected. SOME of them are the owers that be (some are just average Joes who happen to be rich).

The DOW isn’t disconnected from economics, it just appears that way. It supposedly is inversely related to the dollar, so when the dollar goes down, the DOW goes up.

Kaos will rule the day in the next four years exactly as they planned to the point where they think the sane hard working people will rise up and say please dear leader stop the violence and the dear leader will cast upon the nation a new and FAIR system where the uneducated and the lazy will be happy and the hard working law abiding citizen will be a slave to the teet suckers and thier leader. We have reason to be angry at the GOP but we have more reason to cock block the dearleader and his plan for us

“black” America’s last hope is to join the meritocracy and forget this skin color focus. Stop being a reactionary. Stop this idea that normal names are “slave” names and quit naming children “Placenta” and “Dewayne” and other nonsense names. Try to find a way to contribute to the overall good and get control of sex outside of marriage. Oh, marriage is a good idea too.

America reads that as Obama is a failure

Is the only hope for Blacks more social programs so they can get a government check rather than be encouraged to become self-sufficient and successful? Democrats gave Blacks 40 years of miserable go-nowhere welfare. How compassionate is that?

I think Bill is more scared his million dollar Obama donation will be seen as money wasted...

Imagine giving someone a million dollar for their re-election and they are rejected by the general population....I'm sure he will see it as a rejection of his values as well...he will never admit that...

Bill better stock pile some prozac...and cocaine

Perhaps someone could ask Bill; why, it is OK for Jesse Jackson to feel fear at night; if a Black man is behind him, on a D.C. street and not a 'White man'. Why is it racist if a White man, feels the same fear, as well.

What hogwash!

Those of us in the “real” world have become more colorblind than ever. During a stint in the military, I learned that the color of a guy’s skin isn’t nearly as important as his ability to do the job well. And I think the rest of America feels pretty much the same way. King was right about the “content of his character.”

Racial problems were fading away, IMHO, and good riddance. After all, the “N-word” is now unspeakable, a lady of color (Beyoncé) was named the most gorgeous woman on the planet and skin color doesn’t even occur to us when we’re cheering for our favorite athletes. Then Obummer came along and stoked all the fires again.

The people of my acquaintance understand that only too well. Idiots like Samuel L. Jackson might be voting for Obummer purely because he’s black, but most intelligent people know a loser when they see one.

My son, young enough to be liberal, and I discussed the impact of Obama’s election over the Christmas holidays 2008.

My position at that time was Obama stood a high probability to be a massive failure. This was based on two counts - first is total lack of political background; the second count was the improbability of Obama selecting strong people to counter his weaknesses.

Needless to say this brought howls from my son until I compared Obama to a professional chief, something he had experiences with.

I told him that the worse thing about Obama’s presidency was the impact it would have on future minorities running for the Presidency; no matter how good or bad they would be declared “Obama-lite” by members of the opposing party.

IMHO, this is the line that is being taken by the LMSM to preserve their creation - president Obama. Unfortunately it reflects the liberal mind set - you can never ever do enough to atone for (fill in the blank with the conservative “sin” of their choice). Three hundred years from now with a continuous string of black presidents our great-great-great-grandchildren would still be hearing how they must vote for another black president or it will undo all the the “advances” made since Obama I’s rule.

I hate to say it but down at the sawmill the fourth grade dropouts are saying that the best thing for the Demo Rats now would be a Romney win because it would inevitably be followed by further economic misery and racial strife which could then be blamed on the GOP which seems to exist only for the purpose of being the whipping boy for the failures of Marxism. Soros has already said that it matters little whether Romney wins and Ted Turner has apparently said that he would have no problem with a president Romney. To my poor befuddled brain that sounds as though they may be actually HOPING for a Romney win, just imagine the rant from the left in 2014, “We gave the house to the GOP in 2010 and we gave the presidency and the senate to them in 2012 and look what we have now, it is time to put the Socialists back in power.”

Of course all of this is pure speculation on my part, fueled by disgust with the current situation and the lack of a real choice for president for yet another round.

Of course, for the same reason that when the dollar goes down a cheeseburger goes up. It takes seven dollars now to pay for the fast food lunch including tax that used to cost forty-five cents back in 1965. The current Dow adjusted for inflation is really no higher than it was decades ago.
