Obama: Some People Dislike Me Because They Don't Like That I'm Black
breitbart ^ | 1/19/14

Posted on 01/20/2014 5:12:57 AM PST by bestintxas

On Sunday, The New Yorker released an interview with President Barack Obama in which the president stated that his approval ratings had been suppressed due to racism. “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama stated. “Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president.”

Obama’s current approval rating is down to 39 percent according to Gallup; his approval rating in the black community remains extraordinarily high, although it is significantly lower now than it was when he was re-elected.

Obama’s overall approval ratings have tumbled coincident with the failed rollout of Obamacare, as well as his mishandling of the Syria and Iran crises. Obama’s supporters have often suggested that political difficulties he experiences are attributable to generalized racial anxiety.

If obama had been solid white, he would NEVER have been elected.

Yes, Mr. President, I suppose that there are some who do dislike you because you are black.

But that clearly is a vast, vast minority, and not worth mentioning...unless of course you are in deep trouble in the polls, which you are.

Most of us dislike you because...true to your word...you have brought fundamental change to this nation. Thank God so many people are waking up to what a disaster your fundamental change is.

Then there are millions more of us who dislike you because of what you are, and have been from the start of all of this. That's why I disliked you from the start.

You are a flaming, Marxist ideology with untenable ties and sympathies to fundamental Islam.

Race card playing #419. I mean, is this all the LW has? Play the race card? Didn’t the civil war end in 1865? Why does the Left want to play this war over and over and over and over again? I mean, the “Democrats” fired on Ft Sumter, and it seems they were not satisfied with the results

"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."

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-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s 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 people’s 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.

Isn’t 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?

Can’t 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 isn’t 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!

Here is the Thank You letter Barack 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.

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.'"

Nice try, Barry.

Nope, we don’t like you because

-you’re a straight-up @ss-HOLE.

-you abuse the office you were elected to.

-you hate anybody to disagrees with you’re twisted ideology.

-you’re a CORRUPT polititian.

-you are a compulsive liar and think the American people are stupid.

-you and your wife are MOOCHERS -living like king and queen off of OUR money that you STEAL from us.

I could go on and on, but you aren’t worth it.

Besides... you’re HALF WHITE, you racist idiot.

You just suck as a human being. THAT’S why people don’t like you.

Shocking ingratitude over the fact that a MAJORITY OF WHITE VOTERS elected you?

Brazenly third-world attempt to gin up a racial conflict to take attention away from your own dismally cratering performance?

Personally I don’t give a damn WHAT COLOR you are. Only that you are lousy incompetent underhanded Socialist.

When you stand before Christ at His Judgement Seat you will know what HE didn't like and your skin color will have no play there. Everything you did "in your body" will testify either for you, or against you no matter what your color.

Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Being as though you think yourself falling into the "great" category, I would pay very close attention to that part.

BO is, at best, 3/8th black and it could be as little as 1/8th. The remainder is Arab. His Kenyan tribe considered themselves a higher class of blacks because they originated on the coast and became wealthy trading slaves through Zanzibar. The elite of the tribe was always Muslim and often Arab.

The Arab traders-- and their black trading partners-- had a perk of adding the most desirable females, usually lighter skinned, of a newly acquired group of slaves to their harem. This is the reason that professional genealogists find good documentation of the men in patriarchal lineage of BO, but very spotty and often missing (except for a name) documentation of the women in patriarchal lineage.

The British colonization of Kenya severely restricted the slave trade and drove many of Obama's tribe inland where they had to eek out a living herding livestock. The German defeat in World War I and loss of neighboring German East Africa eliminated their final source of slaves. Thus, their hatred of all things British.

Interesting that in a interview on MLK’s birthday BHO would whine that he is being judged on the “color of his skin” instead of the “content of his character”, when, in fact the opposite is finally occurring and the public is seeing him for what he truly is... a phony, narcissistic blow-hard.

In other words "Let's keep talking about racism in this country". The libs need it to survive." A complete shallow loser in any book.

The liberals are always saying the Tea Party and Republican Party are Racist. If that is true, why does the Tea Party support people like Alan West, Herman Cain, Senator Tim Scott, Mia Love of Utah, Dr. Benjamin Carson, etc.? The are all black!

All of the above are true conservatives and beloved in Tea Party circles. It must also be noted that Senator Tim Scott is from the Deep South. He is a Senator from South Carolina.

Racism does run deep but that racism and victim hood runs deep in the Democrat Party not the conservatives in the Tea Party and Republican Party.

I hate him for all of the reasons above stated. But also because he is a big spender...of our money. I have a sister in law like that, whom I love dearly, but she is the kind that just recently within the past year got a medical suit settlement for over $200K and already is down to $20K, but has had a really great time spending it, but on her OWN money...some people need somebody to manage their money... the Obamas need someone to manage OUR money!

To add my two cents to what has already been said, I believe that his comment blaming his low approval on his race is indicative and consistent with his past comments. He is trying to make this out to be “WHO he is” and deflect that the low rating is really about “WHAT he is doing”. It is natural, as the narcissistic individual he is, that he would try to steer this into “all about ME”, the individual. That is not it. The low approval rating is the result of what you have done, not who you are. I could care less “Who he is”, I grade on “What he is doing”. Frankly, I think 39% approval is way too high for what he and his staff have done to this country.
