Skip to comments.Obama's Media Begin New Coordinated Attack On Romney With Unnamed 'Anglo-Saxon Heritage' Quote
Posted on 07/25/2012 9:47:36 AM PDT by mandaladon
If you haven't heard about an unnamed Mitt Romney adviser discussing America's "Anglo-Saxon heritage" with a British reporter yet, you will.
On Tuesday, Britain's Telegraph published the following:
As the Republican presidential challenger accused Barack Obama of appeasing America's enemies in his first foreign policy speech of the US general election campaign, advisers told The Daily Telegraph that he would abandon Mr Obamas Left-wing coolness towards London.
In remarks that may prompt accusations of racial insensitivity, one suggested that Mr Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr Obama, whose father was from Africa.
We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special, the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: The White House didnt fully appreciate the shared history we have.
Notice how none of the advisers including the one quoted were named.
Not surprisingly, this has already gotten the attention of many Obama supporters here at home.
Salon's Joan Walsh wrote Wednesday morning, "In an [sic] stupidly racist gaffe, a Romney advisor tells a British paper his boss better appreciates our former overlord."
Walsh, Salon's editor at large, shouldn't call anyone stupid if she thinks "an" goes before "stupidly."
But she wasn't the only Obama sycophant jumping on this foolishness. Slate did as well, as did the New York Daily News, and New York magazine.
It seems a metaphysical certitude this will be featured all day long on CNN, MSNBC, and the broadcast evening news programs.
Of course, Romney's people are denying the entire story, but that's not going to prevent the President's media from advancing it.
I thought Obama was part Irish.
Actually it’s a “Judao-Christian” Heritage.
So, basically, hussein is telling people not to vote for romney because he is white? I wonder how that would play the other way around?
Desperation run amok.
What’s wrong with Anglo-Saxon heritage?
talking of “black” heritage is not racist, but talking of “anglosaxon” heriage is
I’ve called him Barry O’bama before.
“...Notice how none of the advisers including the one quoted were named....”
The sources of the Obama campaign lies, other than Obama himself, are NEVER named. Most of it is fabricated anyway so it really doesn’t matter.
But wasnt the United States once a colony of England or something?
“This fascinating book is the first volume in a projected cultural history of the United States, from the earliest English settlements to our own time. It is a history of American folkways as they have changed through time, and it argues a thesis about the importance for the United States of having been British in its cultural origins.”
Unless you are French, German, or liberal, nothing... though “heritage” was not the right word to use and it was a stupid gaffe. We have an Anglo-Saxon economic model, which is what the advisor was probably trying to get to get to and which Obama hates. Obama prefers the German-EU social market economy, which is essentially mercantile capitalism.
Making up stuff out of whole cloth to try and get everyone’s mind off of the “you didn’t build that” groaner? Won’t work, but nice try.
The Irish aren't Anglo-Saxon.
I thought Calypso Louie claims we were once an African colony. Or something.
Ha! Just as I thought. According to Wikipedia we were indeed once a British colony:
They are so desperate, they are grabbing on to anything and everything. Everything is a racist code word. Everything is a racist dog whistle. Romney could wish someone a happy birthday and the left would see something racist in it. They have, in less than 4 years, set back race relations in this country so far it will be next to impossible to improve them again. And thats exactly how they want it. Race against race.
It’s a lie unless they can name the “advisors” and the “advisors” admit to saying it.
This is their plan, just say anything. Prove it’s not true.
In fact, so were the Angles.
