Obama Plays The Race Fear Card
"We know what kind of campaign they're going to run," the Illinois senator said at a fundraising event in Jacksonville, Florida.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me - 'He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?'"
"They're going to try to make me into a scary guy. They're even trying to make Michelle into a scary person. Right? And so that drumbeat - 'We're not sure if he's patriotic or not; we're not sure if he is too black.'
"I don't know, before I wasn't black enough. 'Now he might be too black'. We don't know whether he's going to socialise, well, who knows what."
The only persons responsible for raising any questions on the issues that he brings up is himself and his wife, Michelle The Dangerous Washerwoman.
And we can add his racist, sexist, America-hating pastors Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfleger.
And we can add his connections to Tony Rezko and arms-dealer Nadhmi Auchi, (whom Obama "toasted") and others that he has associated with during his life that begs all types of questions.
And we can add that Obama has done fundraising for the terrorist group Hamas, has said he would meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without any pre-conditions and yet - until recently - Obama said he had no desire to travel to Iraq and meet face-to-face with General David Petraeus.
And we can add that Obama is no friend to Israel, that instead he is terrorist-friendly. We can add that his friends are domestic terrorist Weather Underground members William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
And we can add that his own campaign is afraid to have him pictured with people who dress in traditional Muslim clothing by booting them from being seen at his campaign appearances.
And we can add that, despite Obama's best intent to claim not to be a Muslim, that his own half-brother Malik Obama says that Barack is indeed a Muslim.
And we can add that Obama cannot be trusted with America's national security and keeping us safe for being one of a small majority who voted against the Iraq War.
It is Obama who displays his own behavior of being anti-American when he refuses to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.
It is Obama who refused to wear a U.S. Flag lapel pin.
It is Obama who permits his staffers to hang Che Guevara flags and posters in his campaign offices.
Heck, IT IS OBAMA'S OWN DEMOCRAT PARTY members talking about his connection to terrorist groups!
It is Obama, his wife, his campaign gurus, his staffers and his supporters who have brought all this upon themselves.
But now, The Meccachurian Candidate plays the Fear Card of Racism in trying to scare people into believing that it is the Republican Party that will try to do this?
It appears The Illinois Muslim has erased from his memory that it was the Republicans who passed Civil Rights in the 1960s, not the Democrats who fought tooth and nail against it.
It appears The Illinois Muslim has erased from his memory that it was Democrat Attorney General Robert Kennedy who ordered the illegal wire-tapping and surveillance of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
And it is Obama's fellow Democrat Senator Robert Byrd who belonged to, and was a proud member of, the Ku Klux Klan.
Obama hits all the correct Talking Points of Advanced Liberal Mantra:
3) When caught, blame the other guy
Is Obama desperately pathetic or what? He will self-destruct because of over-confidence and arrogance well before the November Election.
You let this man get in control of our country and it will take years to fix what he will do…
Jimmy Carter will look pleasant by comparison.
It IS about him playing the race card in order to scare his supporters into thinking that the Republicans will use race as an issue. Hence, my writing that he is playing the Race Fear Card.
What you say is correct, that like all Libs he accuses his opponents of what he will do - "psychological projection" is what da doctors call it. And Libs are filled with it.
It's okay for Obama to play the Race Card to his favor, in his attempt to instill fear in voters, but it's not okay to hold him accountable for his words - something the Left would never overlook if it were a Republican doing the same.
