First off, am I the only one who finds it racist and insulting that white liberals stereotypically assume that if you're black then you have had a terrible, oppressed life? This is so foreign to me and so at odds with people (whatever color) I chill with that I am surprised African Americans don't spit in the face of these tired old liberals.
Secondly, Arabs are the most racist of all peoples...... they have a word for blacks abed, which means slave so how would that give Obama an edge? What gives Obama an edge with Muslims is his Muslim parentage, his Muslim background, he practiced Islam, his ties to Odinga, his middle name Hussein, his Arab genealogy, the fact that Islamic terrorists endorse him, and statements like, "he [Obama] told me last year, on the record, that the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset”(Kristof, New York Times).
John Kerry: Obama Has That Old Black Magic - Commentary
ABC News’ Jake Tapper just reported on a startling interview given by Senator John Kerry:
Kerry said that a President Obama would help the US, in relations with Muslim countries, “in some cases go around their dictator leaders to the people and inspire the people in ways that we can’t otherwise.”
“He has the ability to help us bridge the divide of religious extremism,” Kerry said. “To maybe even give power to moderate Islam to be able to stand up against this radical misinterpretation of a legitimate religion.”
Kerry was asked what gives Obama that credibility.
“Because he’s African-American. Because he’s a black man. Who has come from a place of oppression and repression through the years in our own country.”
Where to begin! Have notable Democrats become so intellectually sloppy as to draw some baffling equivalence between blacks and Muslims? The last I checked, Arab Muslims were none too happy with their black countrymen in northern Africa.
Also, where is this “place of oppression and repression” in which Obama has suffered “through the years”? Hawaii? Harvard? The Senate? We should find out immediately and do something about this horrific crisis.
Last, how is what John Kerry said less outrageous than what Geraldine Ferraro said? How is it different at all? They’re both attributing success solely to skin color.
Every day the race-obsessed Left discovers a new low. There is no end in sight for the Democrats’ identity nightmare. But an end to the Democrats’ chance at the White House is taking visible shape on the horizon.
