Listen…I’m no fan of Obama, and like Mark Levin, I’d vote for a can of orange juice before I’d vote for Obama in 2012. Somewhere along the way, just because our president is black, videos like this are becoming more mainstream and more acceptable on YouTube and other sites, and it should not be.
This is tastleless to the n’th degree, but if it’s okay for black people to do this, how is anything ANY of the Republican candidates do remotely deemed racist at all?
If this country ever truly wants to progress and become a more civilized nation, why is trash like this even tolerated? I’m not asking for this garbage to be censored, but I’d love to see at least SOME condemnation of things like this to be more prevalent. Can we please all agree this is unacceptable in a civilized world? You cannot condemn one group of people for being allegedly “racist” while simultaneously approving of another group of people for creating videos such as this, villifying a single race of people in the process of glorifying the creators of these videos? One need only search certain terms on YouTube to find thousands of videos like this one. And they’re all equally disgusting.
As is said in many places, “hilarity ensues” (h/t Mediaite):
Frances Martel does a fabulous write-up about it, and I couldn’t have said it any better, so here it is direct from the Mediaite post:
“Are you offended?” O’Reilly asked Harpootlian, who replied that he was not, but that he found the fact that Republicans had “no outreach to African Americans” a problem “in a state where we have an African-American Republican Congressman.” “Adding insult to injury, this debate ignoring Martin Luther King’s birthday!” he added, which made O’Reilly ask who was ignoring the debate and why. The Republicans, Harpootlian replied, because “no one has raised any issue with Fox about it being appropriate or inappropriate.”
This is a direct quote from tonight’s NH debate, when asked about his anti-semitic, racist newsletters in the past:
“One of my heroes is Martin Luther King because he practiced the Libertarian principle of peaceful resistance and peaceful civil disobedience, as did Rosa Parks did. But also I’m the only one up here, and the only one in the Democratic party, that understands true racism in this country that’s in the judicial system, and it has to do with enforcing the drug laws.”
Whether she is or not, I’m using her own tactics and words against her (and her fellow co-hosts). On the upcoming Barbara Walters “10 Most Fascinating People” special, one of the people Barbara interviews is former GOP primary candidate Herman Cain. Also interviewed in the special is Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad. When Barbara brings that up to discuss with her fellow View co-hosts, Joy immediately leapt at the chance to disparage Herman Cain, asking Barabara of whom she was most afraid …Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad or Herman Cain? Apparently Joy Blowhard is more afraid of a black man than she would be a brutal Hezbollah terrorist.
Joy, when are you going to realize that you are not funny? Bashar al-Assad is a terrorist leader and sympathizer of Hezbollah, a proxy terror group for Iran, and you are trying to equate someone like that to the unfairly maligned Herman Cain, who is a devout Christian, married for 43 years to his wife, Gloria? Assad’s goon squads have killed thousands of dissidents in Syria who have protested the dictator’s decades-long rule, yet Herman Cain is merely being ACCUSED of inappropriate behavior with mostly unknown women, all of whose claims can be clearly disproved given the chance for an appropriate investigation.
On Meet the Press this weekend, David Gregory interviewed Newt Gingrich about his presidential run. One of the things he tried to pin on him was that he was racist because he said Obama has presided over an economy where 47% of Americans are on food stamps, and that the ultime run would be about paycheck vs. foodstamps.
Then if that wasn’t enough, E.J. Dionne in the panel discussion went one further – Newt said we need to follow the economic policies of Texas, not Detroit. We all know what a miserable failure Detroit has been, do we not? Well, apparently to E.J. Dionne, Detroit is code-word for “Motown,” which OBVIOUSLY makes Newt even more racist.
Now I’m no huge fan of Newt, but folks, this is just a preview of coming attractions. ALL those who oppose Obama’s policies or positions are going to be called “raaaaacists” for it. Let’s hope this outs those in the race-pimp industry for who they are – demagogues for Obama.
