Awwwww, another instance of Barry's thin skin. Poor, poor, poor Baby Barry Hussein Obama, Junior. Recall him being heckled while visiting the Western Wall (Times Online) during his European Vacation:
[Obama] was heckled as he visited the Western Wall in the early hours of Thursday morning, bowing his head in prayer and observing traditional custom by placing a folded piece of paper into the crevice of the wall.
Orthodox men interrupted their morning prayers to catch a glimpse of the Illinois senator, reaching out to shake his hand as he passed them by. But not all were taken by the Democrat. One yelled out: “Obama, Jerusalem is not for sale!”
...the senator from Illinois was confronted by self-described members of the "International African Revolution" concerned he doesn't talk enough about race.
A boisterous town hall meeting in the Gibbs High School gym here was repeatedly interrupted by activists from the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement, a pan-African socialist group, who accused Obama of ignoring the plight of poor blacks targeted by predatory lenders, police brutality and racist attacks. Obama tried to calm the situation, with assists from a supportive crowd that shouted the hecklers down.
Handing the activists the microphone did little to assuage them.
"All these attacks are clearly being made on the African community," one of the hecklers, St. Petersburg resident Diop Olugbulu, 31, said, when Obama recognized him and directed the microphone to him. "Why is it that that you have not spoken to the issues or spoken on behalf of the African community?"
The International Peoples' Democratic Uhuru Movement is chaired by Omali Yeshitela, who created a YouTube video which denounces Obama in video called "white power in black face."
Their concerns are that they believe that Barack Obama does not address issue pertaining to the black community.
It's been quite some time since we checked in with our exclusive commentator Baby Democrat. What does Baby Democrat have to say about heckling Obama:
It truly is a fine line... pull it out too often and you have those who are not black (every other nationality and race) complaining that all he talks about is being black and THAT scares people into thinking they will be harmed or neglected in some way.
Don't pull it out often enough and now you have black Americans worried that they will be ignored and neglected. Notice that I said “black Americans”, not “African Americans”. That just drives me crazy… I don’t go around saying I’m a “Welsh American”… just look at me and it will only take a few guesses to figure it out. I am proud to be American… being Welsh is secondary. If it wasn’t secondary, I would move to Wales.
Thing is... what the hell... am I really THAT blind? Am I really in the dark THAT much? I thought it didn't really matter what color our skin was in America. See... I don't treat anyone differently based on their skin... I treat them based on their actions and words. I don't deny that when I see someone who is different than me that my mind doesn’t pin point the differences... but what I do know is that although I may notice, it's truly just the fact I have a human brain and not a puppy brain. I think... I comprehend... I analyze... I am a story teller; one who writes must notice as much as possible. I like or dislike people, for the most part, equally… make me laugh or make me cry… that will be the deciding factor.
Gonna have to address this in my blog now. I always get so carried away in these comments and then think I should post it on mine... see... you got me thinking again.
I too am tired of a hyphenated America. It is very divisive and does nothing to bring people "together" as the Dems claim to want so badly.
The Dems play the Race Card at every turn, when they think they can get away with it. Just because Jesse Jackson is black doesn't entitle him to use the "N-word" as he recently did when caught by the microphone. It's either bad for anyone to use it, or it isn't. (Comical exceptions I would grant, as in a Chris Rock or Bernie Mac stand-up comedy routine, but that's NOT how Jackson used it).
It doesn't do anyone any good in perpetuating racial divisions, but this is only one of the ploys used by the Dems because they have nothing solid on which to stand on real issues.
As Barack Obama completed his visit to the Western Wall of the ancient Hebrew Temple, he left a prayer note, as is customay. As luck would have it, someone grabbed the note and this is what it said:
"Drink More Ovaltine!"
