Have you seen this? Have you seen Obama sinking to the depths of gutter politics. He plays the race card again. Close your eyes, he sure sounds like a racist. It is wild to me that the man that ascended to one of the most powerful positions in the world - one step away from the White House - is saying this is a racist nation. Would a racist nation put him one stop away from the Whitey House? And yet he is still playing the race card. He's black! He's white! He was Muslim, now he's not! He's American but he's a Marxist! He's like a modern day three faces of Eve. (vid hat tip Hot Air)
"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy…We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid…They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?…he's got a feisty wife…We know the strategy because they've already shown their cards." (hat tip Lrawyn via Dinocrat)
This is the most divisive demagogue that has ever reached the pinnacle of power in Modern American history.
...it was the Southern Democratic Party in alleigance with the Ku Klux Klan that brought back servitude and the denial of Black Rights. The Democratic Party. It is no secret that White Southerners were responsible for Slavery and the founding of the Confederacy. It is no secret White Southerners, excepting a few very brave souls who left the South after their lives were threatened, endorsed, applauded, and supported the denial of Black rights.
Andrew Johnson, Ben Tillman, Woodrow Wilson,Tom Watson, John Rankin, Theodore Bilbo (the last three vicious Jew-baiters as well as Black haters), George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Fulbright (yes, the Lib's darling), Faubus, and lest we forget - Senator KKK Byrd and Jimmy Carter, who began his career as an Klan acolyte - the list of White Southern Democrat bigots goes on and on.
Yes, the Republican Party, formed to fight Slavery in 1856, that elected a President who fought to preserve the Union and end Slavery, a President murdered by the same mentality that gave us the Ku Klux Klan. A Party willing to do the right thing to save America and send 600,000 boys to their graves - maybe that too, was an unnecessary war, right?
And Julian Bond calls it the Taliban. But hey, it gets worse.
What party did Bond owe his allegiance to? Why the Democrats, even with the scores of bigots and those who hadn't exactly discarded their white sheets (Byrd, for example). Or their "new" hero, Jimmy Webb, who at www.jameswebb.com openly admires the Confederacy and an ancestor who fought for Nathan Bedford Forrest. At Fort Pillow, no doubt.
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, the Charlie Barron guy in New York City who wanted to slap white faces, the "victicrat" list goes on and on, not to mention the shameful - if not groveling, collaboration with White Southern bigots on the part of Black Democrats. And Lo and Behold, we've got the Lincoln disser, the guy who brought Jerry Wright, and by extension Farrakhan to the table. The guy who befriends Ayers, Dohrn, anti-Semites like Brezinzski, McPeak, Power, Islamofascists like Said and Khalidi. And yes, the guy who once proclaimed that "Republicans discovered Black people" while he admires and respects Robert Byrd.
Not once has any of the above demanded Byrd's resignation. Obama? You've got to be kidding! You would think there's a sense of honor and dignity, but no. It's Trent Lott, Tom DeLay, and Republicans they'll go after and call the Taliban or much worse.
For all his Ivy League learning, Obama never learned a damn thing about History - and neither, apparently Bill Moyers in not mentioning once the disgusting history of the White Democratic Party in the South between 1865-1970.
So yes, for this former Civil Rights worker, there is a lot of anger towards a Racial Hypocrite like Obama. My blood is on the ground so that he, Jesse Jackson and Condi Rice can make total assholes of themselves, or that we can have Black Nazis like Jerry Wright. But hey, this is America.

UPDATE: Baldilocks opines here:
Most people couldn't care less about your name and your color, Senator Obama. They fear being lead by you because you have no substantive legislative record, you're a chronic liar and, after explicitly stating that you choose your friends carefully, you have repeatedly and systematically made friends with people who hate this country.
You would "bridge the divide," Senator, by burning that bridge.
