Racist Homophobes… Er… Black Pastors Tell Obama "We Will Not Stand With You" On Gay Marriage

August 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm (African-Americans, Black Pastors, CAAP, Coalition of African American Pastors, First Gay President, Gay Marriage, Marriage, One Man and One Woman, President Obama)

Surely if you saw a media report regarding people who oppose the President’s support for gay marriage, you would see white male racist Republicans.  For that is the only demographic which would dare oppose our first gay, African-American president.  Only outdated conservatives could still hold on to the belief that marriage should consist of one man and one woman.  Right?

Wrong.

CNS News:

The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) announced at the National Press Club on Tuesday that  the grassroots group – comprised of the more than 3,000 members – is a launching a national campaign to support marriage between one man and one woman and to oppose the Obama administration’s efforts to advance same-sex marriage.

“The time has come for a broad-based assault against the power that be that wants to change our culture to one of men marrying men and women marrying women,” CAAP President William Owens said at the press conference, held to announce the Marriage Mandate campaign, which includes a petition seeking 100,000 signatures pledging support for traditional marriage.

“Mr. President, I’m not going to stand with you, and there are thousands of others across this country that are not going to stand with you with this foolishness,” Owens said.

In a press release announcing the campaign, Owens encouraged black pastors and the black community to “withdraw their support for [Obama].”

Whoa… Isn’t this the exact same kind of speech that a Chicago councilman referred to as “hate speech“?

Who knew a coalition of black pastors could hold such hatred for a black President?  After all, any and all opposition to Obama has to be based on skin color, and not his policies.  That’s what we’ve been told for four years now.

One of the pastors suggested that Obama has been ignoring the black community “because he feels that he has us in his pocket.”  While this group and those they represent make a good point, they will continue to be taken for granted so long as they vote for Obama at a 90% clip, despite strong opposition to gay marriage and despite an economically disastrous 14.4% unemployment rate.

Voting for him based on skin color is just as bad as voting against him based on skin color.

Yid writes:

Whether this has an effect on the vote or not is not the issue.  The important thing about Rev. Owens is his attack on this President are obviously racially motivated and is one more example of how white people are uncomfortable with the color of Barack Obama’s skin. True the Reverend is also a person of color, but I am sure Cokie Roberts would say that George W. Bush did a Vulcan mind meld on the poor pastor and made him act racist.

Tea Party Group Calls Obama Too Black For Whites To Like

July 10, 2012 at 9:36 pm (African-Americans, Blacks, Conservatives, Liberals, Mitt Romney, Race, Race Baiting, Racism, Racist, Tea Party)

Caught your attention with that headline, right?  But, why?

Because of it’s undeniable and blatantly racist connotation.

Problem is … That’s not an actual headline.  Nor is it an actual news story.  But this is…

Liberal group calls Romney too white for blacks to like

Bet your ass if that headline read the way the original does, it would be national news.

The message is delivered via video produced by a liberal group headed by an ex-Media Matters executive, and includes such gems as – Romney is so white, he makes Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel … or something.

As is typical, the message hides behind the facade of being a ‘satire’ or comedy.  And they will get away with it.

In advance of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP, a liberal group headed by a former New York Times reporter and ex-Media Matters executive have produced a video “satire” that claims blacks don’t like Romney, who they dub so white he makes “Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.”

The YouTube from “The Message,” an online “media hub,” is described as a satirical video of Romney getting advice on what to say to the civil rights group. Or, as they said in a release, the video “lacerates Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to NAACP in Houston on Wednesday.”

The lead “advisor” in the video is described as the brainchild of the 1988 Willie Horton ads and the 2004 swift boat campaign. He states bluntly that “blacks don’t like us and we’re about to give a speech to a whole lot of them.”

Here’s the video…

Satire or not, this video is meant to plant the thought that Romney is your typical rich, white guy who can’t relate to the average African-American.

Now imagine a Tea Party group trying to produce a rebuttal to this and see how it would be reported.  Would they be able to call it satire?  Or comedy?

Or would they be branded racists?

Black Voters in North Carolina Abandoning Obama

June 13, 2012 at 9:00 am (2012 Election, African-Americans, Blacks, Gay Marriage, NC, North Carolina, Obama, Poll, President Obama, Public Policy Polling, Same Sex Marriage)

Support for President Obama among African-American voters is plummeting in North Carolina, likely a result of his ‘evolution’ from opposing gay marriage, to becoming the nation’s first gay President.

North Carolina, considered a crucial enough swing state for the Democrat party to hold their convention there, is leaning Romney right now, 48 to 46 percent according to a new poll.

But the stunning information coming out of this poll is that Obama only leads the African-American vote by a clip of 76 to 20 percent.  Still a huge difference sure, but in 2008 Obama beat McCain for the African-American vote by a 95 to 5 percent margin.  Just last month, Obama led 87 to 11 percent, so clearly blacks are abandoning Obama like the sinking Titanic his campaign has become.

To add to the misery expressed in this poll, it is not a conservative think tank poll, nor even a supposedly objective media poll – it is from the Democrat leaning Public Policy Polling.

From Business Insider:

President Barack Obama is rapidly losing support among African-American voters in North Carolina, a new poll out today from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling shows.

The poll finds that Mitt Romney would get 20 percent of the African-American vote if the election were held today, compared with 76 percent for Obama. Overall, Romney has a 48 percent to 46 percent lead on Obama in the crucial swing state.

… All of Obama’s numbers with African-Americans are sliding. His approval rating is down from 86 percent to 77 percent. Romney’s favorability, meanwhile, has doubled from 9 percent to 18 percent.

…  (Jim) Williams (polling analyst) added the obvious: If the results keep turning up like this, it would be “very bad news for him.”

Bad news for Obama = Good news for America.

Kirsten Powers: Democrats ‘Trapped in the Past’ on Voter ID Laws

April 19, 2012 at 9:08 am (African-Americans, Democrats, Fox News, Kirsten Powers, Voter Fraud, Voter ID)

Is Powers the only liberal pundit with common sense?

I disagree in one aspect, however.  If anything, Democrats are willingly trapped in the past.  Voter ID laws are the one sure way to curb their monopoly on voter fraud.

Via the Daily Caller:

On Wednesday night’s “Special Report” during the weekly online segment, Fox News contributor and Daily Beast columnist Kirsten Powers said her party — the Democratic Party —is “trapped in the past” in their opposition to voter ID laws.
“This is one of those arguments that I feel Democrats are sort of trapped in the past … At one point, I think this was true in extremely rural places or, you know, with people who were, you know, couldn’t read or couldn’t write — you know, in a different time,” she said. “Or when African-Americans were very afraid of the government — things like that.”
Powers suggested that the Democratic Party explore ways to make sure everyone had an ID so they could vote, instead of opposing voter ID laws outright.
“Now today I’m just not on board with this,” Powers said. “I think it is perfectly reasonable to expect somebody to get an ID. And if they don’t have the money or the means to do it, the Democrats can start an organization that does that — that helps them go and raises the money to pay for them to get the ID, which is not that much money, and gives them the forms and tells them how to do it.”

Allen West: Democratic Handouts a Form of Slavery

February 15, 2012 at 11:49 pm (Abraham Lincoln, African-Americans, Allen West, Democrats, Economy, Florida, Handouts, Justice, Republicans, Slavery)

As usual, West needs no further commentary.  The man is a perpetual machine of wisdom.

Via The Hill:

Freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Wednesday evening praised the Republican Party for consistently fighting for individual freedom over the last 150 years, and criticized Democrats for pursuing “handouts” to the less fortunate that he said are a modern form of slavery.
“Our party firmly believes in the safety net,” West said in a late Wednesday floor speech. “We reject the idea of the safety net becoming a hammock.”
“For this reason, the Republican value of minimizing government dependence is particularly beneficial to the poorest among us,” he continued. “Conversely, the Democratic appetite for ever-increasing redistributionary handouts is in fact the most insidious form of slavery remaining in the world today, and it does not promote economic freedom.”
West recounted the history of the Republican Party by noting that it played a major role in several key moments in which it fought for greater freedoms for African Americans. “The Republican Party has always been the party of freedom,” he said.
Among other events, he noted that Republican President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, and the GOP pushed the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution that ended slavery, provided equal protection under the law, and gave blacks the right to vote.
He added that a Republican Congress passed the law establishing the Buffalo Soldiers, and that GOP President Ulysses Grant signed the first major civil rights act into law in 1875.

Joan Walsh – The Most Racist Journalist in Media?

January 13, 2012 at 1:45 am (African-Americans, Democrats, Joan Walsh, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Racism, Republicans, Rick Santorum, Salon, Tea Party, Tucker Carlson)

Well, she’s certainly making a case for the title.
In a piece titled, When white people lack “bourgeois values”, the Salon Editor at Large manages a race and class-baiting exacta, covering an alleged economic disdain shown by Republicans towards African-Americans, and charging the GOP with promoting policies which “shackle women to the home”.
In attacking a Rick Santorum speech on family values, in which he correctly stated, “When the family breaks down, the economy breaks down”, Walsh had this to say:
It’s a fascinating worldview that colors the entire GOP primary campaign, in which actual policies to help workers and families are rejected in favor of those that cut government and shackle women to the home, and it needs to be better understood.

It’s also another reminder that the prejudice and disdain Republicans once reserved for African-Americans has spread like a toxic mist to stigmatize a lot of other people, including a lot of white folks.

In citing proof of these allegations of prejudice towards white people, Walsh embarrassingly references the 46 million Americans on food stamps, the vast majority of whom are “white people”. 
Embarrassing why?  Because it was just last May that Walsh used the ‘food stamp’ argument to prove that Newt Gingrich had used the phrase as “coded racism” against “black people”. 
Calling the use of the term ‘food stamp’, racist towards blacks, when a majority of those on food stamps are white, can only make sense in the mind of a bigot projecting their own true brand of racism.
Projection is a staple of the left.  It is why they continue to harbor some of the more egregious offenders on the topic, whilst playing the race card at every turn.  Rush Limbaugh summed it up best when he said the following:
“Democrats and liberals think that we, conservatives, are racists, sexists, and all those other things. In fact, it is they who are those things. It is liberals who look at a human and first notice a skin color, or gender; then they get into sexual orientation, then segment into all kinds of groups. This is the way they see people. They also use projection quite commonly and regularly, and so it is us, they think, who are racists and sexists.”

Projection.  In this facet, Joan Walsh excels.  It was a few short months ago that Walsh went off on Glenn Beck for comparing the Obama administration to The Planet of the Apes.  A simple analogy to a movie for some, but Walsh, in her infinite wisdom, spotted something that nobody with cognitive reasoning skills could see – the prejudiced message behind Beck’s comparison. 
But it runs much, much deeper.  Scanning headlines concocted by the Salon editor reveals a consistent pattern of including race in nearly every argument.  It is so prevalent, one wonders if race is the only prism in which Walsh views the world.
This January alone, Walsh wrote five articles which contained derogatory comments directed toward the GOP about race.  Here is a sampling from each:
“While African-Americans are still more likely than whites to see that conflict (between rich and poor), the percentage of whites who agree tripled… credit the GOP for creating the conditions that allowed income inequality to soar”

“…prejudice and disdain Republicans once reserved for African-Americans has spread like a toxic mist to stigmatize a lot of other people, including a lot of white folks.”

“…having a black president makes it seem safe, and necessary, to unwrap Reagan’s pretty paper and once again make plain the GOP’s political association between welfare and African-Americans.”

“… Santorum’s comment about black people is straight from the GOP playbook that created the “Reagan Democrats”… That playbook helped convince the white working class that the government is taking their money and giving it to undeserving black people.”

“Santorum is doing what Republicans have done since the 60s: Trying to turn white people against government programs, and the government itself, by implying they only help black people.”

And when she’s not race-baiting her readers, Walsh breaks out the class warfare rhetoric.  Of the ten total articles in January, eight center on either race or wealth inequality.
Walsh’s trend of racial rhetoric is not simply recent.  In July of 2010, she flat-out accused the right in general and the Tea Party specifically, of being racist.  She wrote, “I honestly believe that the wanton use of that terrible term to defend Obama is part of why today, when there is genuine racism against the president from the right and within the Tea Party, it’s sometimes hard to get anyone to pay attention.”
In that particular piece, Walsh ironically accused conservatives of distorting facts, and was immediately called out by a liberal colleague for actually distorting facts.
One of those Walsh had accused of distorting facts at that time was Daily Caller editor-in-chief, Tucker Carlson.  In an e-mail conversation regarding her claims that Republican economic policies “keep women shackled to the home”, Carlson opined, “The economy can’t be too bad if Joan Walsh still has a job.”
As long as there is a liberal stranglehold on the media, there will always be a job out there for professionally intolerant and narrow-minded race-baiters like Joan Walsh.
