Getting “all wee wee’d up” over race

Maureen Dowd said she heard (from her own mind) Joe Wilson say, “boy.”  Of course, he did not say any such thing but guess who did call Obama boy.  None other than former president Carter.  And what has happened to Mr. Carter’s “bright new hope for America?”

See this from August of 2008:

JIM LEHRER: And do you think that — if it happens that he is elected, or even just being nominated, is — will send positive ripple effects throughout the country on the race issue?

JIMMY CARTER: Around the world. Around the world. And I think it already has sent a wave of approbation and admiration in many countries around the world, just knowing that this black boy who grew up with just a loving mother and grandparents — and that was about all he had to start with — does now have a chance to become the nominee of the Democratic Party for president.

But I don’t think there’s any doubt that there’s a spirit and a bright, new hope for America within this country and around the world. And if Obama is elected, which I think he is going to be, then I think that will be the transforming race for the end of racism, and prejudice, and hatred between races in this country.  (See for more info.)

His guy, in fact, was elected as president and now a year later the same country that elected him is a bunch of racists??  You would think as a senior statesman he would have more decorum and just plain common sense than to make such a claim as he made the other day.

I used to have a lot of respect for President Carter, not because he did a good job as president because he did not, but because I thought he was doing a good thing with Habitat for Humanities (which I have supported and contributed to).  Now, I am wondering if he doesn’t have any more houses he should get back to building.  Maybe that was all just a sham, too, for all I know.

Maybe the hatred and prejudice resides in his own heart.  I just remembered yesterday his Playboy interview about what is in his heart.  🙂

Any how, this race accusation has lost it’s power.  First of all because it’s not true.  I am proud of Michael Steele as head of the Republican party and I would vote for Alan Keyes for president in a heartbeat.  People like Maureen Dowd, Chris Matthews, and others who love to throw the race card around should think about that. (I am sure they would not go along with everything that Steele and Keyes brought forward.)

So they may just disagree with policies and because of that,  I am sure they would not like to be declared to be racists.  But then only the liberals do that sort of thing, if you will notice.  Could it be that “projection” thing again?

Playing the race card – Projection and Desperation!

Projection is a defense mechanism in which what is emotionally unacceptable in a person is unconsciously rejected and attributed or projected to others.

So that’s what we have when Ms. Dowd hears “boy” from thin air, a word never spoken but that comes straight from her own mind and prejudices.

And now former president Carter, peanut farmer from Georgia, has made a sweeping statement that opposition to Obama’s policies is certainly racist.  But is he the racist?

Some congressman from Georgia is now on tv saying that surely there will be people in white hoods marching in the streets in short order.

Ridiculous!  All of it is ridiculous.  And it is wearing thin.

Our country has elected a black president, he came into office with about a 70 percent approval rating, he received enormous support from white Americans, but now that he has come under criticism, we are all a bunch of racists.

The MSM is carrying that message with abandon now trying to discredit the march on Washington this past weekend, and trying to discredit the growing pushback on this administration’s trying to cram down our throats drastic changes in a matter of a little over six months, changes that we do not want.

It’s all just a desperate, desperate effort to ignore and marginalize opposition.  It’s not going to work, and God forbid there is ever any real racism, it won’t fly because people will be so sick of hearing about it over nothing.

Just this past week, a black tennis player has told a white judge that she was going to “ram this effing ball down your effing throat.”  And a black man has snatched the microphone from the hands of a teenage white girl on nationwide tv. Now President Obama called this guy a “jackass.”  I suppose that had to be Obama’s white, racist side that said that, huh?   So let’s get real. Charlie Rangel is a tax cheat, he is black.  Tim Geithner is a tax cheat, he is white.  A tax cheat is a tax cheat.  People are people, they do things wrong, whether they are black or white.

But if keeping score is what is called for, we can keep score.

Crying Wolf Too Many Times

Anybody who has been on the internet blogs for even a few weeks, or even a few days, knows that the moment there is a criticism of Senator Barack Obama, the attacks and the abuse is sure to come, usually in the form of being called a racist.  It is a tactic and a strategy, standard operating procedure.  One is not allowed to criticize Senator Obama.

Now, I see Representative John Lewis and John Rich, Maureen Dowd, the AP, the New York Times – and I’m sure CNN and MSNBC, though I haven’t checked in with them yet this morning – are carrying the water for Obama to try to make this into the 60’s.  Just now I see Mr. Axelrod on Fox whipping it up further, and Bill Burton has defended Lewis’ recent statements, both of them at the top of the list of Mr. Obama’s campaign advisers.

Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and veteran of the civil rights movement, says the negative tone of the Republican presidential campaign reminds him of the hateful atmosphere that segregationist Gov. George Wallace fostered in Alabama in the 1960s.

In a statement issued Saturday, Lewis said McCain and running mate Sarah Palin were “sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.”

Oh, yeah, play that race card.

Of course, McCain named Representative Lewis as one of the three wise people he admired when he was asked in the Saddleback Forum.  Is that the “hate and division” he is talking about?  But I think McCain was wrong about that wise part.

But first of all, this is not the 60’s and Barack Obama isn’t even black.  He is equally as white as he is black.  If you read any of the posts I made or any number of others who have written about Obama’s connection with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, it is pretty obvious there is a connection.  But where is the racism?  Last time I looked, Ayers and Dohrn are white, but still pretty much with the same opinion about America as they had back then, just managing not to set off any bombs.  And, yes, he was pal-ing around with them.

Secondly, people are getting mad and frustrated.  But mostly they are mad about the bailout (95% were and are against it) and the extreme bias of the media who has for the most part been an arm of the Obama campaign.  So Obama can’t be criticized.  If he is, the big guns are brought out.  But most of us have become immuned to it by now, but it is truly beyond the pale to attack McCain and the McCain campaign.

But just try to notice who it is who is really “sowing the seeds of hatred and division.”  Who is it who is really fanning the flames?  Who but the MSM loves to make race an issue more than life itself?  Whose pastor was it who screamed anti-American and racist speech?  The fondest desire of the media and some aging civil rights figures would be that they could bring back the 60’s.  After all, that was their day of glory.

Barack Obama has been treated with kid gloves.  If anyone should be reeling from insults it should be Sarah Palin.  As Kinky Friedman said recently, “She has been mocked more than anyone since Jesus Christ.”  But did the media defend her and call for the Obama supporters to lay off her?  No, they jumped right in.  Did anybody step up and blame Obama  for everything that was said and demand that he make them all stop?   Not hardly.  Did you hear David Gergen say, in his carefully modulated tone, that what was being said about Palin was “incendiary:”  Nah.

Take a look at this if you want to see an example of incendiary.  http://michellemalkin.com/2008/10/12/crush-the-obamedia-narrative-look-whos-gripped-by-insane-rage/

Things are beginning to come out about Obama’s ties to Ayers and Dohrn, about his buddies in Fannie and Freddie who were or are his financial advisers, his being the #2 recipient of Fannie and Freddie campaign contributions, his ties to ACORN and the voter fraud they are engaged in.  It’s getting hot in the kitchen.  So it’s time to ratchet up their last, best hope to shut it down – the cry of racism.

And who is surprised?

See this video of Senator Obama and his remarks concerning ACORN and “community organizers” in 2007.

But to inject a little humor into the situation, back in August Jon Stewart nailed it on the use of “the race card,” and I think it is appropriate now:  “Run, America, the giant black balls of Obama are upon us.”
