What If Obama Loses?
Newsweek ^ | 27 September 2008 | Allison Samuels

Posted on 10/06/2008 8:32:39 PM PDT by Terrence DoGood

Racism, naturally, plays a part in the conversation. "I've never forgotten that he is a smart, articulate black man with a smart, articulate black wife," says Linda Wright, 34, a nurse's assistant from Houston."You think white people were just going to turn over the keys to the most important job in the land without a fight?" The overriding feeling is apprehension, a vague fear of losing something people thought was theirs to keep. "My kids love Obama and they think it's so obvious he should be the president," says actor D. L. Hughley. "I was just honest in saying life isn't always fair and certainly isn't always fair for African-Americans. But Obama has overcome so many obstacles, it's easy to forget reality."

There's not a lot of anger—yet—but you can start to sense the potential for it. "I'm going to be mad, real mad, if he doesn't win," says Daetwon Fisher, 21, a construction worker from Long Beach, Calif. "Because for him to come this far and lose will be just shady and a slap in black people's faces. I know there is already talk about protests and stuff if he loses, and I'm down for that."

If Obama loses, I fear that it wont be the civil unrest from black America that we will have to worry about.
It occurred to me last night after watching several internet videos on Obama’s muslim and islamic/marxist ties that I started wondering if Bush really deserves all the credit for the fact that America has not suffered any terrorist attacks since 9/11. I’m starting to wonder now if the election of Barack Hussein Obama IS the counter-attack we’ve been expecting, and that his defeat will spell instant terror cell activation.

Just a thought...

There’s only one Obama sign in my neighborhood. There are two cautious Darcy Burner signs (she’s challenging Dave Reichert for Congress) from the usual liberal neighbors, but just the one lonely Obama sign.

Usually these two neighbors litter their yard with signs of every democrat running for everything from president to the PTA. This year, nothing.

So let them riot. The rest of us are armed.

I gonna be happy, really happy when he loses. I might even riot in my house. Start a fire. Break an egg and cook it with some chorizo.

Then I will laugh as they riot in the streets of chicago, denver, la, and dallas.

Personally, I believe that there will be riots whether he wins or loses, and the thing is it will be done by the same people either way.

I’m in Tn and I have two shotguns, one for both doors.

And I’m completely serious. Being from the south, this is no joke. Especially since Atlanta is right down the road and Freaknick was a celebration! Imagine it without the “happiness”.

I hope you are joking about burning down the cities. There are still some burned out areas in cities such as Detroit and Newark that experienced race riots in the ‘60s. 40 years later and some of those areas are still bombed out. If we see widespread rioting, some of those areas will be gone for a generation before being rebuilt.

“Summary: We’re all racists if Obama loses.”

They can play that game but it will blow up in their face because if they say that is why Obama lost........

Only democrats and independants will be the racists.

Republicans are voting for the republican as expected.

I don't think the Koreans will take it lightly.

Geraldine Ferraro was correct:

THE ONLY REASON B.O. IS ON THE BALLOT IS HIS RACE!

So it is about race with them. I am supposed to vote for 0bama just because he is black and they are 'owed'

What if Obama loses?

It means America has won.

I can’t call you a “crook” because of your black skin, but you can call me a “racist” because of my white?

F**k you.

Suffering isn’t exclusive to any one race. Neither is prejudice. In fact, whites have faced prejudice in the US. We’re looking at it right now in this article.

What if Obama loses? You’re going to call me a “racist” - you’ve already done that. You’re going to riot in the streets? Wouldn’t you be reinforcing the violent black criminal stereotype? And you’d call me a “racist” and demand that I be silenced for pointing out such a thing?

Summary: We’re all racists if Obama loses.

But in reality it will be the tolerant libs who are shown to be racists. A conservative wouldn't vote for him if he was whiter than Johnny Winter.

If this interview is on the up and up...it is the biggest shame that they are voting based on the the color of his skin rather than the content of his character and another shame that they might have even looked at his character and have been hoodwinked into thinking “it’s just great”.
