NAACP Official: Obama Campaign Staffer Threatened Me
CBS News ^ | Mike Krause

Posted on 10/04/2012 4:42:21 PM PDT by Mount Athos

The President of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP alleges a director of the re-election campaign of Barack Obama has threatened and intimidated him because he doesn’t support the president.

David Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phone conversation with Louis Raymond, the Obama for America Illinois regional director.

Lowery says he doesn’t personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community. He said he was explaining that to Raymond when the Obama campaign official told him, “You know what? I know everything about you.”

Lowery says Raymond added, “We’ve been watching you, and since you don’t support Obama, we’ll deal with you,” before hanging up.

Lowery filed a report with the Oak Forest police report, he says, “in case something happens.”

He says it was suggested the NAACP should automatically back the president. Lowery notes a non-profit cannot support a particular candidate.

He says it’s a clear signal the Obama campaign is concerned about the black vote.

Lowery hosts an internet radio program called “Let the Truth Be Told,” where he’s made no secret of his displeasure with the president.

Louis Raymond declined to comment.

Sounds like Lowery is getting uppity and doesn’t know his place on the plantation.

If you check into the early history of the NAACP, they did not want to have ANYTHING to do with the Communist Party.

That's because the NAACP was founded by white and black) Republicans, and the first president of the NAACP was a white Republican.

You’ve got a nice house there, David. It would be a real shame if anything happened to it. We’re going to have a few friendly guys from SEIU come by to say “hello” to you and talk things over. I think you’ll reconsider. Have a nice day. Oh, and make sure your homeowner’s insurance is paid up.

Could it be there's a mole in the NAACP?

Obama Collapse in Illinois: Tied in District He Won by 23 Points in ‘08

Back in August, a poll showed Obama with just a 12-point lead over Romney in Cook County, Illinois. While he posted a huge lead in the city of Chicago, the poll found him actually losing to Romney in suburban Cook County. It was a shock that I set aside as an outlier.

A new poll of Illinois’ 10th Congressional District, which includes parts of Cook County, however, suggests the August poll might not be such an aberration. The poll, from WeAskAmerica, finds Obama with just a 2 point lead over Romney, 47-45 in the suburban district. Obama won the district in 2008 by 23 points.

I know the district well. It is affluent, with high levels of education, and very socially liberal. Voters there take pride in being politically “moderate” and wear the label as a badge of honor. Since the 1980s, the district has been represented by a Republican in Congress, but not by anyone who could be mistaken for a conservative. Al Gore and John Kerry both carried the district comfortably in 2000 and 2004. And, in 2008, Obama won over 61% of the vote in the district.

Leftists simply do not tolerate any deviation from their agenda. Free will may occasionally be a leftist talking point but it is not a valued principle. Lockstep loyalty is not just expected it is demanded.

The American black people were very conservative before the communist came along and brain washed them.
It all started in the 30s 40s with the lie from the leftist that FDR was their man and the Republicans were for the rich.

Well, the Mafia always kill their own too.

No surprise there... just follow the money.

Same today with the so-called "civil rights" lobby.

People like Jackson and Sharpton would have you offed in a second if you mess with their rice bowl. They really don't give a crap what color you are... mess with their cash flow, and they will hurt you.
