Weasel Zippers ^ | April 2, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

Is he saying Obama is gay or black voters are inherently homophobic?

Via Beltway Confidential:

On MSNBC this morning, liberal political activist Van Jones said that President Obama wouldn’t lose support from the black community even if he came out as gay.

During a segment on gay marriage, anchor Alex Witt asked Jones if Obama, “would lose some of the black vote if he did come out in support of gay marriage.”

“I think if he came out as gay, he wouldn’t lose the black vote,” Jones said with a chuckle. “President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

firstly, Van Jones is gay...secondly: Obama could rape and kill a white woman on the steps of the White House and his favorability rating amongst blacks wouldn’t dip below 60%.

I agree.
The blacks will vote black and/or Communist no matter what he does.
If Cain were the Republican nominee, Obumbo would still
win the blacks, as he is a Communist.

Unfortunately, I know a few so called black Christians who voted for him, and who will vote for him again. Doesn't say much for them does it? I think most, or at least many black Christians, have drunk the cool aid as well.

He doesn’t have one drop of blood from being a descendent of slaves but has 43.25% of arab blood with slave traders and owners in his ancestry yet they will defend him to the nth degree over the color of his skin.

Did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. die in vain? Did he not dream of an America where people are judged on the content of their character, not by the color of their skin?

Is this hyperbole or something else? I’ll simply say this: Obama is so destructive to the country that I wouldn’t vote for him even if it were proven that he is 100% straight and never cheated on his wife.

Recent data and polls show he is losing interest among black potential voters. And much of that is due to the realization of WHO AND WHAT he is, and what he wants to do, and is doing, to America.

That’s the understatement of the century.

100% of straight men and lesbian women throw better than that.

95% of straight women and gay men throw better than that.

“Obama could rape and kill a white woman on the steps of the White House and his favorability rating amongst blacks wouldn’t dip below 60%.”

Unfortunately, if Obama was the Democrat nominee, he could rape and kill a *black* woman on the steps of the White House and still carry the black vote on Election Day.

I hope that will change some day, and we are taking baby steps to unshackle black voters from the Democrat Party that has abused them for so long (we cannot underestimate the importance of Congressman Tim Scott, as well as Allen West and (hopefully joining them in Congress next year) Michael Williams), being on TV as thoughtful, unabashedly conservative Republican voices that will prove to black voters that being a Republican won't give you vitiligo), but we'll have to wait for Obama to leave office for that to happen.

Isn’t that racism? When people, who ever they are, vote for the color of the skin rather than anything else.

Remember the cheering when OJ got off the first time? Liberals were surprised that blacks would cheer a murderer getting off for killing his white wife. I doubt many of us were surprised.

Liberals are soooooooo gullible.

“Resident zer0 is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does.”

Thanks, Vel. Does this comment by Van Jones acknowledge zer0 is gay? Or is my imagination working overtime?

1. A Freudian slip me thinks.

2. An admission that blacks are homophobes and haters.

____________________________________________

I do not know about the Arab blood.
His Kenyan father and family look pretty sub-Saharan negro
to me, and I do not think there were any slaves in his ancestry.
Were they Muslims?
I assume that his mother was just a typical American radical leftist hippie.

When gay marriage was voted on in Cali, blacks were the strongest demographic against. This is the problem with identity politics.

“Man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
