Okay, so where's that same crowd of liberals who dogpiled Ron Paul for being endorsed by a racist?
Let me know when Obama goes and personally talks to Farrakhan and his group like RP did when he went to cuddle with the white supremacist nutcases....
or like McCain did when he went to Bob Jones U.
How'd I know the response would be with caveats as to "why not?"
What's good for the goose is good for the gander, and IIRC correctly, the conversation centered around who was providing support, period.
There is no presumption of guilt for Republicans and presumption of innocence for Democrats double-standard. It's one or the other.
["Barack Obama is the "hope of the entire world" that the U.S. will change for the better"]
Gee I wonder what that statement actually means in the eyes of Louie the magnificent..........................
Whether or not you admit it, the endorsement of Farrakhan, whether sought or not, is not exactly something any candidate is going to paste at the top of his or her resumé. Farrakhan is a racist of the first order. How would you be reacting if David Duke had come out and endorsed John McCain?
is Bob Jones considered crazy around the country? I was raised right near it and knew a few kids who went there. They were idiots though, so I guess it would make sense cause they preached about BJ like it was the birth place of christ and the professors were jc's disciples.
Farrakhan is one of, if not the most vile, racist persons in the world. To be associated with this is sorrowful. If Obama was half a man he would come out in strong condemnation of Farrakhan. But, he won't because of his ties to Islam. Simple, really.
Understand something... I HATE Louis Farrakhan. Hate him. Ok? So let's start there...
But did you really think he wouldn't support the black candidate?
Did he support the black Republican Candidate? Ever?
My objections with respect to RP and his relationship with the white supremacists was two-fold:
1. RP WENT to speak to a gathering of the white supremacist loonies, thus showing his relationship with them;
2. Any policy that a white supremacist would support would NEVER under any circumstances be good for me, capish? White supremacists hate Jews worse than they hate blacks and latinos;
3. If Obama went to speak to Farrakhan's congregation, damn right I'd be critical of him and the only thing that could make me vote for him after that is the thought of another republican president appointing our justices, but I'd be honest about holding my nose while doing it;
4. I know of no policy that Obama supports that would hurt me, per se. That isn't true of Ron Paul.
But good try attempting to liken the two.
