"Racism" and Obama by Columnists "Racism" and Obama June 21, 2008 04:00 AM EST This is truly pathetic. From now till the election any tough question leveled at Barack Obama will be responded to with screams of 'racism'? Well it's par for the course. Oh but don't take my word for it. Go look at about 10k liberal blogs backing Obama against Clinton. Why vote for Hillary? Because not voting for her makes you a sexist. Why vote for Obama? Because not voting for him makes you a racist. I guess libs care more about the plight of blacks than the plight of women. So ladies â to the back of the equality bus please. Ninety five percent of the lefties I've argued with call me a racist for not supporting Barack. Conversely ninety five percent of the lefties I've argued with can't tell me what Obama stands for. All they see is his dark skin tone and they get all gushy. I thought a 'racist' was someone who judged people solely based on their color. So who's the racist here? I know why I'm opposed to Obama and it has nothing to do with how he looks. Obama loves to portray himself as the son of a poor single mother'a single mother who lived in Hawaii a place most Americans only visit in their dreams. Okay Hawaii has one of the highest costs of living in the US, I'm with you. I would believe that most people in the aloha state are working their butts off to make ends meet. But a few years later she moved back. Okay â I guess I'm still (somewhat) willing to believe the 'Oh woah is me' act'except that Obama went to a PRIVATE SCHOOL there. Again most Americans can only dream of sending their kids to private school. Even if they have the Congressional connections to get the paperwork to send their kids to a place for a better education, most Americans can't afford it. I can only guess how outrageous the cost of private school in Hawaii is. He went to college at Harvard and Columbia. How many poor kids can claim attendance at these places? I've known people who were really sharp on the uptake and wanted to go to such places. But they couldn't afford it even stacked to the gills with student loans and scholarships. Likewise his wife went to Princeton and Harvard. What's next â Steven Spielburg's niece going to come out and lecture us about how tough it was growing up on the mean streets of Beverly Hills? Now if you listen to the Obamas, black people can't do what they've done in America today. And they're going to be joined by the usual band of suspects: Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee and before it's over many, many others who'll join the chorus of lecturing us about what a rotten place America is because people like them are getting screwed and have been screwed. We've all felt ostracized at some point in our lives because we were the wrong race, the wrong sex, the wrong religion, the wrong political party and so on. To sit here and argue that it's exclusive to only one race, religion or sex is so far off it is offensive. To argue that one single group got it worse than all the others is likewise offensive. During the early 1900's laws all across America attempted to destroy German culture. You couldn't even speak German publicly in a lot of places. Likewise the Indian tribes were forced off their lands. Likewise the Irish suffered from horrible discrimination during the 1800's. Yet people like the Obamas only want to talk about how they were shafted. It's amazing to me. 'God Damn America', screaming about 'white privilege' and other prejudiced stereotypes aren't racist? But asking Barack a question he's not ready to answer *is* racist? And the people who claim to be the smartest amongst us can't follow that simple chain of logic? How stupid is that? He claims that he didn't hear any of this while sitting in his church for TWENTY years. This is the guy who wants to go talk to our enemies. Is he going to listen to their answers? Or is he just going assume that they don't mean it when they tell him they want us all dead? His wife was paying attention to all of those sermons. What's he going to say to our enemies anyway? 'Please don't kill us.'? 'Please don't build nuclear bombs.'? We've been saying these things to people who don't like us for 50+ years now. It hasn't worked. They're still working on nukes. They're still drawing up plans to murder us. The idea that this is a change of any kind is naive. One last thing: Barack comes from a long line of slave owning plantation overseers on his father's side. Will Spike Lee demand forty acres and a mule from Obama? Will people like Spike Lee even point out Obama's slave owning background? I didn't think so.
