Obama Hates Black Politicians, Black Politicians Hate Obama
Frontpage Mag ^ | 11/07/13 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 11/10/2013 3:03:20 PM PST by Libloather

It’s an interesting dynamic. And apparently it goes both ways.

It’s not news that black politicians, particularly of the older sort, hate Obama. The Congressional Black Caucus nearly went all in for Hillary. Jesse Jackson talked about cutting off Obama’s nuts. No doubt much worse was said in private.

Some of this may be a personality clash between the old corrupt generation of black pols, the Charlie Rangel era, and the younger savvier Cory Bookers, like the one that played out in Newark. The Charlie Rangels think the Obamas and Bookers are too slick and too phony, that they don’t know how things really get done and that they’re little more than puppets of white bosses.

Tell me that I didn't just agree with tax-cheat Charlie!

Laugh at me if you will, but I strongly believe to right conservative could very well flip a sizable part of the black vote.

Some of the most aggressive attacks on Obama have come from John Conyers.

>>Hating... not to be confused with ‘not supporting’..

I can see their point. The Obamas and Bookers talk about “the struggle” and other civil rights era things, but they’ve never lived in an America where there was a negro lunch counter or coloreds-only water fountains. They grew up in privilege, getting affirmative action quota preferences from birth and school lunch programs, etc. Obama/Booker/etc ride on the backs of civil rights pioneers who actually took risks to stand up for something. The Obama types never risked anything, but they talk as if they were fighting police dogs in Alabama with their bare hands.

But, that being said, blacks vote black and that’s the reality of things. Its a lesson the GOP needs to learn.

I agree. As someone who has taken it upon myself to reach out to the inner city people just to talk and listen, I can tell you that the sand is definitely shifting.

Sizable may be a stretch, but I agree there are many fiscally conservative middle class blacks who could vote for the right conservative...even 10 to 15 % swing would be a death blow to any democrat running...

Chris Christie probably got a large percent of the black vote in NJ...

He's not my style of "conservative" but he proves it could be done...

Conyers was telling the truth that the republicans aren't the ones cutting medicaid, Obama did that.

And yet, NONE of these Democrat Plantation Overseers dare to step out into the public, out of fear of the backlash they helped to create.

Sorry if I find this rather ironic.

One of these days, a Herman Cain or Dr. Carson could very well slip past the leftist attack machine.

Mostly likely it will be someone we barely have heard of that succeeds at a state or lower office before moving to the national stage. Popman is also likely correct that middle class blacks will first act on a realization they are being purposely exploited.

It makes sense....Obama is a leftist and not a member of some civil rights group. He’ll certainly use the various clowns and professional race-baiters, but ideologically he’s not one of them. I’m sure he sincerely believes blacks and minorities are oppressed by evil, racist whitey, but his identification with certified morons like most members of the CBC only goes so far. They want money, he wants power. Money obtained too easily disappears quickly...power gets money and lasts a long time.

Pop,

While we’re what ifing. Imagine what could have been if Obama’s grandparents hadn’t been committed academia leftist. What if his grandfather had been a small town Kansas businessman?

His becoming President would have been an even longer shot given the left’s vigilance for any minority going off the reservation, but one’s mind wonders at the good he could have done if he had used his talents for good.

...the black vote.

Color me sceptical, but, the black vote will vote skin color, especially, if it is an African-un-American.

There are black conservatives who have family values and respect life.

But these black politicians aren’t conservatives, by any stretch of the imagination.

They hate Obama because he came out of nowhere—Kenya, Hawaii, Indonesia—and took the spot they had all been angling for. You don’t hear it now, but there used to be complaints that he’s not a real African-American.

Rangel and Jackson and the rest all hoped to be the first black president. And then this guy came out of nowhere and took it away from them. They can’t say that now, but they did back then, when he looked like the underdog against Hillary.

Any black with an R next to his name will be declared an Uncle Tom and “not really black” by 90+ percent of the black population. Bank on it.

Black politicians hate Obama because they understand that if the host dies, so do the parasites. Parasites which are more reasonable on their demands of the host will survive and thrive longer.

I think they have picked up on how shamelessly he changes his stances and messages, regardless of whatever obligation they may feel to support our first Black president. Larry Elder once remarked that Obama, at the very beginning of his political career, tailored his message to the black community exactly the way he would have done so, particularly when he was running against Bobby Rush. Then he found all sorts of nefarious shortcuts to take as opposed to keeping on the uphill climb.

I think this is simple. Zero has disdain for just about everyone that does not kiss his rear end ideologically. Zero is all about pushing an agenda. The agenda is not black or white or gray, it is government power wielded by those with his radical post American vision.

Yep, my thought.

As in BFD. Blacks would support and vote for black Hitler.

What difference does it make if they don’t like him?

And the Dems are scared to death that it will happen! Had Herman Cain said during his campaign that he would get 1/3 of the black vote! This is a democrat decimation. I do not know the specific numbers but this would be the beginning of the end for the monolithic black vote. Because such a man would lead the way for a iron schism within the black political community.

Is it any wonder the Dems are pushing hard for amnesty? Herman Cain, Dr. Carson and Alan West terrifies the Left.

Obama is more white than he is black.

He’s also more Arabic than he is black.

But he wants us to think he is black, and treat him as black because it suits him politically.

When the 2008 election cycle came around, most blacks went for Hillary. However, the lily-white overseers on the Democrat Plantation went all-out to get Obama nominated. They knew that stupid, ugly white guys (like Algore and Lurch Kerry) could get their dreams of Socialized, Government-run Health Care passed.

Thus, the lily-white Democrat masters pushed Obama. Blacks were still skeptical. So they trotted out Barack's "wife" Michelle...Obama might not be "authentic", but Michelle is the Extra Value Full Meal Deal Angry Black Woman that gets other black women fired up and forces their husbands/boyfriends/sons/grandsons/great-grandsons to meekly do whatever they want them to do...like vote for Obama.

To this day, I still believe black men are not down with Obama. They don't like that poofy-sissyboy white-boy-sounding-unless-there's-he's-talking-to-a-black-audience pansy. However, they don't want their women mad at them and so they'll go along with them.

Obama is not an African-American in the real meaning of that phrase. He’s the half-white son of a well-off white hippie mother and a (foreign) African graduate student and was brought up by a privileged white family. He has nothing whatsoever in common with the “African American experience.”

And as much as I despise the whiners and gimmee crowd in the Black Caucus, they’re right on this one.
