Skip to comments.One More Reason to Dislike Him Now he's playing the race card big time.
Posted on 01/22/2014 5:19:02 AM PST by bestintxas
In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick:
Theres no doubt that theres some folks who really just dislike me because they dont like the idea of a black President.
Now its true that Obama went on to say that there are many voters, both black and white, who give him the benefit of the doubt on account of his race. What this indicates is a man who sees everything in terms of race. Or put another way, Obama views the world in black and white.
As I write this, it is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. My dislike of President Obama isnt a matter of the color of his skin, but rather because of the content of his character or lack thereof.
I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, I won. Im the president,? What other President would intervene in a local matter and declare that its police department had acted stupidly while admitting he did not have all the facts? What other President would make the Dalai Lama leave the White House through a side entrance with a big pile of garbage awaiting him? What other President would tell the Prime Minister of Israel to let himself out of the White House? What other President would unceremoniously return a bust of Sir Winston Churchill to the British? What other President would while traveling abroad describe his country as arrogant, derisive and dismissive?

I’m glad he retreated to the race issue instead of accepting responsibility for his actions and policies; demonstrated for once and for all that he is a pathetic token of whom we are not allowed to expect any adult American behavior or intellect.
After the treason of Traitorobama, everything else is just 'icing on the cake.'
This is just another desperate attempt to get non-whites to get out and vote Dem in this years midterms, because they showed up in 2008 and 2012, but not in midterm 2010.
Everything Obama does and says this year is about this years election.
True, I'm sure there are some who dislike you simply because you're black. However, the other 99% who dislike you do so because you are RED.

From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
Here is the Thank You letter Obama sent to his Hope & Change artist, Shepard Fairey:
"Dear Shepard, I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign. The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign. I am privileged to be a part of your artwork and proud to have your support. I wish you continued success and creativity.
Sincerely, Barack Obama.'"

It appears that America is suffering from a sudden outbreak of SRS (Sudden Racist Syndrome).
He was just exploiting Martin Luther King Day and upcoming Black History Month.
Sadly, the race card is the only thing that this loser has left ...
I didn’t need one more reason.
Well, he can only play half a race card. He does have that white blood. He can deny it all he wants, but Mama was white and he is a half and half no matter what he says. He can stand in a garage and call himself a car, but that does not make him a car. So, standing there and calling himself all black does not make him all black. Of course, we all knew at some point this slime ball would play the race card. They all do when the going gets tough.
All the more reason for me to ignore both. I celebrate Robert E Lee’s birthday-it was his first-and then I ignore all the propaganda and lies of that month.
“He was just exploiting Martin Luther King Day and upcoming Black History Month.”
Probably, but those messages resonate with a diminishing number of people (and disgust an increasing number). MLK Day is just “Negro Victim Day” in terms of the media...
The thing is, he chooses to identify as black, and the black community in general claims him as their own, so all “credit” for whatever he says and does goes to them.
What’s with this “folks” crapola? Clown Prince nobama is such a poseur.
“Sadly, the race card is the only thing that this loser has left...”
The value of the race card is falling fast; the number of people who can remember blacks forced to sit in the back of the bus are fading due to attrition/aging, and younger white/brown/yellow/red people have only seen blacks handed everything on a silver platter their whole lives. High school diplomas, college degrees, jobs and promotions - all given to them for free to try to assimilate them...and we’re still dealing with whines of racism. The US had legal slavery for 80 years, and it ended 150 years ago; today’s non-blacks aren’t listening to this nonsense anymore. The two elections of Obama have put it to rest for non-blacks; now Obama is preaching to the choir with his race-baiting. Anyone who takes this seriously was never going to grow up and assimilate anyway...
What’s race have to do with it ...outside of Obama childishly using it as a weapon to get what he wants?
I know. Blacks love to do that. Toss the white blood and keep the black part. Use what you can to get what you want. I am simply sick of this race card crap. I worked with people from all walks of life in the military. I did see racial problems at times and they were handled quickly to keep the crap out of the service. I am simply sick of it. I knew blacks in the Army that were sick of it. Tired of being looped in with the lazies who played the card.
So paint the SOB lily-white. Won’t change anything. I have NEVER, in all of my 64 years, despised another human being as much as I do Obama. I saw his cards on day one.
It’s not because he is black, but because he acts like some of the worst stereotypes of blacks. We don’t call him Obamamugabe without reason.
Holy Crap. BUMP.
The “race card” has been for the most part, “declined”.
It’s “racist” to not like Soetoro because he plays the race card all of the time? Weird.
Mere tip of the iceberg, friend.
Stupid GOP could likely have won the 2008 election if they had the b___s to release stuff like this.
As I told a co-worker, "Oh honey you have given me so many reasons to dislike you but your race is not even on the list."
I thought my black manager was going to have a breakdown she was laughing so hard.
Unfortunately, it’s still aceepted at the highest levels, such as Holder’s Dept Of “Justice”. If this epidemic were being perpetrated upon blacks by whites, we’d be hearing about “open season on black people”. We heard it anyway when one man used his gun to defend his life against a black thug bashing his head into concrete.
The media won’t cover it, the law won’t adress it for what it is (NOT a string of “random, unrelated” acts), and black politicians turn it on its head to make non-blacks (whom in their minds are all white, even though all the victims haven’t been white, though they’ve all been non-black) the “victims”.
Or they try to relate it to gang warfare in which gangsters kill each other, sometimes also murdering innocents wirh their “spray and pray” method of retaliation. Even the Mafia, evil as it was, didn’t do that.
“The race card has been for the most part, declined.”
Well put; in this day and age it is the white flag of the defeated.
Geesz. Someone must have the b___s to publicly call him on this (”Mr. Obama, are you a communist?”). Would be interesting to watch him squirm.
I’ve been retired almost 20 years and still tell people about the absolute best manager I ever had-——a black woman.
When I saw her death notice in the paper about 2 years ago I actually shed a few tears.
A very classy lady.
An revealing question -
If “white privilege” is so ubiquitous and advantageous, why does such an overwhelming majority of mixed race people choose to “identify as black”?
The answer, of course, is that there is inherent advantage in our society and law to do so.
“White privilege” is just the most recent move of the goal posts. The race baiting industry always has to come up with a new target, as each precious one is met. “Disparate impact” is another one. Equal opportunity didn’t pan out, so there had to be a way that it’s everyone’s fault except that of those who fail due ro their own faults or shortcomings. So the race baiting industey came up with “disparate impact”. It’s not enough for everyone to be equal before the law (even though that’s no longer true-whites are now held to a higher standard and denied justice), now everyone has to have the same outcome, even though everyone’s not equally gifted. Redistribution is yet another one. It’s not good enough that everyone has the same opportunity, according to their motivation, education, talents, to have a home and other property. Everyone has to be equal in material goods, and if that means taking from the producers to give to the leeches, well, that works out just fine. Not only do they enrich the leeches, they impoverish the productive. Works out just they want on both ends.
Precious=previous. Amongst other obvious typos.
I think the claim of “white privilege” has been around a long time.
They seem to cycle through their grievance claims as each one loses its impact.
It’s not because he’s black, it’s because he uses black to extort silence via white guilt from his detractors, acquiescing his actions. Has worked well up till now.
Question, how long can he keep that ballon aloft? Answer, as long as folks allow themselves to be extorted! Tired of the presidential extortion racket yet?
Has his complexion changed since 1988? Maybe he’s grown darker skin, and that accounts for a 39% approval rating. He may want to consider some Michael Jackson treatments to increase his poll numbers.
