Lloyd Marcus: Same-Sex Marriage Costs Obama Same Race Voters
American Thinker ^ | June 15, 2012 | Lloyd Marcus

Posted on 06/15/2012 8:30:45 PM PDT by neverdem

I confess. I am stunned and excited. Black family and friends who voted for Obama are saying they will not vote for Obama this time around.

Why? It's the "gay marriage-thing." Obama recently came out in support of gay marriage. Black folks simply cannot roll with it.

Someone who attends an all-black church told me their pastor said, "God destroyed cities because of homosexuality."

Though under-reported, Obama supporting gay-marriage has created a firestorm in the black Christian community. Black pastors are attempting to pressure the president to walk back his support of what they consider an abomination.

Black pastors are also offended by what they call the "hijacking" of the civil rights movement by the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community.

A relative said despite the great job Obama is doing with the economy, he cannot sell out his Christian values for economic prosperity. Thus, he cannot vote for a president who supports gay marriage.

I wanted to say, "Are you nuts? Obama is doing a horrific job regarding the economy." As a matter of fact, blacks are hardest hit. Black unemployment is at an unprecedented high under the Obama regime.

But I held my tongue for now. I hope to educate him later. He is a black man voting principle over racial loyalty, and that is priority one in my book.

Could gay marriage be Obama's Achilles heel? Or perhaps gay marriage is Obama's fatal weakness, his Kryptonite! I know what you are saying: OK, Lloyd, enough with the corny metaphors. Please forgive me. I am just so excited that finally an issue has broken Obama's vise-grip on the brains of my fellow black Americans...

The American black community forgets-—he is not one of them. He’s Kenyan Indonesian Muslim.

All things being equal, homos tend to be more affluent than blacks. (excluding black homos)

This is the main reason. Loss of attention due to the real one-percenters (queers).

He should have seen this coming. Everywhere else in America, no matter what we think of them, people generally show a modicum of toleration for the homos in this day and age. In the Black community, they are still living “on the down low”.

Blacks and Hispanics are strongly opposed to both abortion and the LGBT agenda...

For those of us who do not know Lloyd, he is an incredible Patriotic and Gospel soloist, proof that the Tea Party was not a “whites only” organization, and also a great friend.

This explains why blacks were blamed in California a few years ago when a ballot proposition went against the gays.

"...Obama supporting gay-marriage has created a firestorm in the black Christian community.

But abortion and the rest of the stuff he's done to keep them in poverty is OK though.

Yes, I'm sure that 0dumb0's support & votes from the black community will plummet from 98% to 97% in the Nov 2012 election. 0dumb0 could rape, murder & roast a young boy on national TV and the liberal dimWits & black community will still vote for the RAT bastard 0dumb0 commie pig-in-chief. All the black so-called Christian leaders (which I doubt for the most part) are trying to do, is to get 0dumb0 to appear to be walking this back or at least considering it. However when it comes time to pull the voting lever, the blacks will vote for 0dumb0 without any hesitation.

Supporting Homosexual/Lesbian marriage, his recent Executive order, etc.,...........I’m convinced he knows he won’t be returning to office, ergo, he will set fire to as much as he can.

Arsonist-in-Chief.

True. I guess I figured, since his church had a “Down Low Club”, he might have put two and two together, but then again little Barry never was too sharp.

I concluded the same thing today based on his announced illegal “amnesty” for illegal aliens.

Best explanation for his committing political suicide with blacks that I've seen yet. Very astute observation!

I guess you'll just have to see it to believe it, but it's true.

Obama has offended blacks on a core belief level with this, which has given a lot of them a justifiable and socially acceptable reason to finally be overt about their intention to withhold their votes from him.

His economic tinkering has hurt blacks more than any other demographic in the country, and they're pissed as hell that they're worse of now, than they were under GWB. They trusted Obama to help them improve their economic lot in life, but he's done anything but.

When he came out in favor of gay 'marriage', that was the last straw for blacks who were on the fence about voting for him again.

Friday’s pandering speech by BHO offering work permits to more illegal aliens should be another nail in his coffin, since the unemployment rate for blacks is much higher than the hispanics’ already due to the latter taking the jobs that blacks used to have.

That black preacher better get right with his down-low _Resident. Or he'll find himself dragged in front of a Hate/Thought Crimes Tribunal to defend himself, with a federal prison sentence on the line, for Failure to "Reconcile" </ lying cant> with his butt-pirating bretheren.

Yeah, but those huge bundled fluxes of Queer Money from the down-low PACs and SuperPACs entitle them, among the Roves and Shrums and Howard Deans of America, to lots and lots of super deference and special arrangements to help them defeat the 95% of America who revile their deviant enthusiams and always-urgent need for pederasty.

Hell, they can even get a couple of Associate Justices when they need them.

The half-frikken american is fundamentally transforming America like he said he would. Throw away the “race” glasses forever. Acquire some philosophical specs. View the destruction of America more clearly. See the country and the individual freedoms of all of its citizen disappear.

I have worked in the black community most of my adult life and I find it particularly disengenous that they are raising a stink about another minority trying to get marital rights when unofficial number of black children born out of wedlock is above 70 percent.

I am had a similar encounter and just bit my lip as the lady told me that she thought Obama was trying to throw the election and he didn't want or like being president. She mentioned the homosexual marriage issues.

If this keeps a lot of black voters home based on principle, then good. If it gets them to vote for Mittens, then even better.

Most certainly will vote for Hussein the Usurper no matter what. But if he loses as little as ten percent of the black vote he will be dead meat in November. GOP really should mount a careful stay-home operation to minimize turnout. The black vote is discouraged and resentful of Hussein's indifference to them, and so would be vulnerable.

I don't think so. You want to see a black guy REALLY offended by another black guy? Ask him what he thinks of Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, or any other openly conservative black. As long as Obama remains a redistributionist, he can kill and devour a baby on live network TV and they will still vote for him.

Well, it goes without saying that most blacks are politically aligned to the left. They're conditioned to despise any conservative or Republican, but yes, many of them reserve a special degree of animosity for black conservatives. This we know.

My point is, Obama has lost a great deal of support across all demographics, but especially among blacks. I won't go into all of the reasons why again, but just remind you that blacks trusted and supported him more than any other Americans.

Consequently, their degree of loss and sense of betrayal is deeper than any other group on the left. Obama's endorsement of gay 'marriage' was the final straw for those people who were already feeling used and betrayed by him.
