Does President Obama hate white people?

I preferred to spend time with my daughter this weekend than covering the Glenn Beck rally, and really, why bother when I knew the coverage would be in the capable hands of Dave Neiwert from Crooks and Liars.

Dave showed up, camera in hand, asking folks if they agreed with Beck that President Obama hates white people. The answers are both illuminating and amusing, especially the rambling response from GOP Senate wannabe Sean Salazar. Hey, good luck challenging Sen. Patty Murray by pandering to the Beck crowd.

Anyway, if President Obama really does hate white people he would have surely hated Beck’s crowds, because as Neiwert points out, they were almost entirely white. Huh. I guess demographics don’t bode too well for the far-right base of the Republican Party.

    See that is the problem, the WA GOP doesn’t have anyone who would be a credible opponent to Patty Murray. I’m glad they find some sucker every 8 years to try, but they have no chance of winning.

    According to his online campaign bio, Salazar is a graduate of Palmer West Chiropractic College in San Jose, California. Although a Seattle native, he was absent from Washington from 1984 to 2004. He says he enlisted int he Navy because he “was compelled by his faith to serve his country” i.e. he’s one of those “God and country” types. Which reminds me of the character Brian Lewis in Chris Rock’s movie “Head Of State” whose campaign slogan was:

    “God bless America and nowhere else!”

    Sensitive delicate progressive illustrator Ted Rall is on a roll. He deposed the Bush Crime Family, and now he’s going after the big enchilada. Rall wants to depose Obama.

    Time for ummm ummm ummm BarackHusseinObama to resign. Don’t know if Rall wants him waterboarded, but we do know that Obama outsources his torture, just as Clinton did. Dave Ross said so.

    Also know that Club Gitmo is still taking reservations. Reports of Gitmo’s death were greatly exaggerated.

    White teabaggers: Because we take our tea with cream?

    Obama’s vendetta against Mr. Sharon Tate (the original 5-foot Pole you wouldn’t touch anybody with) has got to stop. Every other industrialized nation that matters (France) wants Big O to back off and let Roman retire in the venerated artistic senescence he deserves.

    We are told by progressives to restructure our lives and to do it the French way. France takes vacations. They go home early. They get paid and paid to not work. They use health care to cure instead of to kill.

    So why does one old man’s youthful indiscretion make the President of the World act like an ugly American cowboy? Maybe Obama hates white people.

    Can we stop giving the “crazy” folks a serious forum. These folks are the “aliens anal raped me” type nuts. Don’t take them seriously, for a second. If someone REALLY believes the President hates white people, considering his only parent growing up was white, and his closest relatives are white, and he went to a mostly white school, and has a mostly white administration…how do you take their seriously? I KNOW there are folks who REALLY believe the earth is flat, or aliens routinely abduct them to conduct experiments, to the UN black helicopters are always around the horizon ready to steal their guns….but these folks are crazy. Just stop giving them attention.

    I was raised by a white mother. I loathe plenty of white people. I guess that makes me a racist. One of those self-hating race traitor types.

    Last year, this fella was bad mouthing Obama, saying something derogatory about black people. I said “Obama? What do you have against white people?” That shut him up.

    I have almost zero experience with racism, so don’t have much to offer. But it seems to me the problem isn’t racism per se, but prejudice and ignorance, which begets racism.

    Teabaggers are mostly white beacuse they work hard, don’t rely on goverment for every little need. Democrats have the big free lunch program that our african american voters are attracted to. It’s the only way they can stay in power. It’s quite pathetic. Funny thing is if you think a person like Hillary Clinton, or John Kerry wouldn’t have slaves if it were still in style, you might be smoking crack. They could give a fuck. Who cares if Obama likes them, Obama only cares about himself. Besides, Kanye said Bush hated black people. Hell black people dont like black people. Ever look at the murder rate in the BIG DEMOCRAT CITIES. Its more dangerous than being in Iraq.

    You are so right. Thank you.

    Slavery is alive a well today. Like in the Marianna Islands? That the people responsible haven’t all been brought to justice is proof that Democrats are racists.

    And look what happened after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans? All those black people shooting each other. Armed groups of black vigilantes hunting defenseless white people, some just trying to walk their way out of the Ninth Ward when no one came to help.

    It’s an outrage.

    FACT CHECK: Right Wing Falsely Claims Iraq Is Safer Than Washington, D.C.
    The right wing has recently been engaged in an effort to downplay the deteriorating security situation in Iraq by suggesting that the violent death rates in Washington, D.C. are higher than those in Iraq. From Newsmax:

    http://seesdifferent.wordpress.....t-so-much/
    If you look at the numbers for Iraq as a whole, the best research would indicate that well over 100,000 (as of 3 years ago) excess deaths have occurred in a population of about 26,000,000. The excess death rate since the US led invasion is thus approximately 120/100,000/year in the country as a whole, again, much greater than that of Detroit or Washington DC or Baltimore, the most violent US cities.

    It seems so many of these (mostly white) Beck fans are mad because Obama is after their money. One angry white guy said, “He loves my money. Hates me.”

    Didn’t Obama just pass a tax cut for the middle class in the stimulus?

    A lot of white people just got a tax cut. Is this hate?

    We recently read in another thread how Roger Feral Dumb Bunny told us the rich Republicans get perks like the special airport treatment at Stafford County, VA. He also claimed that it’s rich Republicans who are the tea baggers because there are few minorities there.

    So by the feral dumb bunny’s logic ylb arschloch, the white tea baggers DIDN’T get this “stimulus tax break”. Being a libtardo Puddy realizes you can’t add 2+2.

    Once again Roger Feral Dumb Bunny makes an attack comment without researching it for the political consequences. Chucky Schumer always comes through!

    What a libtardo.

    And this is funny too. When “the messiah” turns on a group who helped elect him, lobbyists, they come back and attack “the messiah” too.

    Of course, “the messiah” says one thing and always does another. None of this “politicking” from “the messiah” stopped “the messiah” from nominating a well-known trucking industry lobbyist to head the government agency that regulates the industry.

    Dumb Bunny exploding head occurs. Correctnotright head explodes over seeing four links in a comment.

    Hey Daddy Love–
    The Black migration from Obama has already begun!

    According to the Pew Research Center, the president’s approval rating nationwide is now 10 points lower than last April. Included in this is a three-point drop in his approval among blacks.

    If we assume this reflects the 16 million blacks who voted for Obama last November, a three point shift means there are about a half million blacks who now have buyer’s remorse.

    The buyers remorse is becoming more evident every day. I can understand folks desperate for a Heaven on Earth messiah which Obama portrayed himself to be.
    Obama oversold himself.
    Black folks know it…and the numbers will continue to grow.

    It is more the under 30 Krowd that voted 2-1 for Obama who will find out the cruel joke of massive deficit spending is on them!
    By 2012, more of them will being to grasp the magnitude of Obamunism on their future.

    Now they can see Obama is fullacrap.

    The fall-off is likely ultra-lib / ultra-liberation Jesse Jackson types who dislike his middle of the road / ‘sell-out’ approach.

    Indeed, Joan. Unfortunately, I think America is feeling a bit of buyer’s remorse. This is a good lesson for us to learn however, as we as a nation have been all to quick to assume a slick talking guy that seems cool and meets all the requirements of “identity politics” is actually capable of making executive decisions without having a lick of exeperience on his resume.

    We, as employers, would never hire someone for an executive position that had zero experience or at the very least, a healthy dose of upper management exposure. It just doesn’t happen in the private sector and that is because it has proven to be disasterous when attempted in most cases.

    3 more years to go folks. Hang on, as it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
