3. Does anyone believe race has no role?
You have all these all white protesters trying to delegitimize the elected president and he has barely done anything in office yet.

They can't stand that 'their america' voted for a black liberal democrat from the north who they have convinced themselves is a muslim black nationalist. I know Obama isn't very liberal, but to them he is liberal. Fuck, to these people McCain was liberal which is why he had to pick Palin as his VP.

Violence from these people towards politicians and the rest of us is going to get worse.

6. Michael Steele
STEELE BLASTS CARTER FOR COMMENT
September 16, 2009

From NBC's Mark Murray

RNC Chairman Michael Steele, the Republican Party's most prominent African American official, has issued a press release criticizing former President Jimmy Carter for arguing that much of the opposition that President Obama is facing is due to race.

Steele:

"President Carter is flat out wrong. This isn't about race. It is about policy. This is a pathetic distraction by Democrats to shift attention away from the president's wildly unpopular government-run health care plan that the American people simply oppose. Injecting race into the debate over critical issues facing American families doesn't create jobs, reform our health care system or reduce the growing deficit. It only divides Americans rather than uniting us to find solutions to challenges facing our nation.

Characterizing Americans' disapproval of President Obama's policies as being based on race is an outrage and a troubling sign about the lengths Democrats will go to disparage all who disagree with them. Playing the race card shows that Democrats are willing to deal from the bottom of the deck. Our political system has no place for this type of rhetoric. As the leader of the Democratic Party President Obama should flatly reject efforts by those in his Party, including Jimmy Carter and Tim Kaine, to inject race into our civil discourse in ways that divide, not unite, Americans."

When First Read asked the RNC how DNC Chairman Tim Kaine was injecting race into the discussion, it provided as evidence this Politico clipping, which explicitly says that Kaine DIDN'T bring up race.

"Virginia Governor and Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine used a speech Friday to single out those conservative critics whose hostility toward President Obama goes deeper than just opposing his policies but without mentioning that which many in his party believe drives the anger. 'Republican leadersrose up to say that he did not deserve honorary degrees from colleges that were giving him degrees last spring, members of Congress, Republican members of Congress, are spreading bogus rumors about where the president was born, and they whipped up opposition all across this country when President Obama wanted to give a speech to our nations schoolchildren to tell them to take responsibility, study hard and stay in school, Kaine said here at the partys fall meeting.'"

"He demurred when asked later whether this often-personal criticism is rooted in contempt for a president who happens to be black."

10. How many of these teabaggers/birthers/haters believe that
... Obama replacing Bush as president is just another example of a black man taking away a job from a white man?

Reverse discrimination is our number one problem. Just ask Pat Buchanan.

What will white people do to survive?

11. "There's something happening here. What it is is EXACTLY clear ..."
What's Going On

Dan Savage
Sep 17, 2009

We all know, or should know, what's going on here. The right wing media blowhardsthe men who run the GOP's racist rumpare going to crank up the paranoid, race-baiting rhetoric until they succeed in pushing a deranged "patriot" over the edge and an attempt is made on the life of President Barack Hussein Socialist Hitler Racist Obama. If the assassination attempt is a successGod fucking forbidthe right wing will have succeeded in removing Obama from office by... what's that phrase again... oh, right: by any means necessary. And the country will be consumed by riots, which will have racial overtones, which the right-wing will point to as proof that they were right: black people, from the dead president on down, are dangerous and violent and coming to get you, white America! The GOP may benefit at the ballot boxbecause they're the law and order party, the "daddy party"so why wouldn't these immoral fuckers go for it?

Getting the president killed is a win-win scenario for the Limbaughs, Drudges, Becks, Bachmanns, etc. Let's stop pretending that it's not what they're after.

Politician wont apologize for Obama hunting tags remark

BY JESSIE L. BONNER
Associated Press Writer

BOISE, Idaho Idaho Republican Rex Rammell said Tuesday the hoopla over his remarks about hunting President Barack Obama has been a boon to his campaign, and he again refused to apologize for what he called a joke.

snip

But Rammell said the publicity has been good for his run for office.

Hopefully, if theres people in Idaho that didnt know me, then theyll know me now. I think Ill come out of this much better off, Rammell told the Rexburg Standard Journal in eastern Idaho, where he lives.

Hatred by the far right of Obama is not hidden in rallies

September 16, 2009
Jerome McCollom

Quick post on the "we don't hate Obama, really" teabag/ 9/11 rallies. How do I say this, have they gone beyond nuts? Here are some of the signs at a 9/11 rally.

A sign with the mustache of Adolf Hitler imposed on Obama.

A sign that said, "Traitors Terrorists Run our government."

A sign that said, "Don't blame me, I voted for The 'American."

One that read, "Obama Bin Lyin."

Heck, at lest I should be happy that they didn't compare President Obama to Charles Manson or Jeffrey Dahmer. At least not yet.

The rightwing states that these rallies are about taxes and 9/11 but they end up about hating Obama. Strange, the right after 9/11 said we had to get behind the president and now the point that they take away from these rallies is to say Obama is an illegal alien. On one hand Obama is a marxist commie socialist ruskie and the next he is a bomb throwing Muslim who wants to impose Islamic law. What's next, Obama is a monarchist? Wait, I think they have said that one too. It's hard to do parody when the other side is actively engaged in doing that to their movement. I don't believe that opposition to Obama makes one a racist but if a person calls Obama a Muslim it is sometimes (though not all) code words for racism. Muslim means different (and that is the worst sin among the far right) and different is bad according to them.

17. Ku Klux Klowns




Ku Klux Klowns

Tuesday 15 September 2009
by: William Rivers Pitt

How many white, middle-aged, overweight, pissed-off right-wingers does it take to unscrew a light bulb?

Depends on who you ask.

Organizers for this past weekend's anti-Obama protest in Washington, DC, were slinging around crowd-size estimates of two million people before the curtain was thankfully drawn on the thing, despite the fact that the number was actually in the tens of thousands. They were in the nation's capitol, so they said, to protest against too much governmental control over the lives of Americans, to protest taxation in general, to screech about birth certificates, to denounce President Obama and to see and be seen amid a throng of fat, white people who look just like them.

Call it a group hug for the demonstrably deranged. But there was more to it than just standard-issue anti-Obama sentiments being aired in the streets. Layered beneath the whole scene was a hard vein of bitter racism the participants didn't even try to hide.

"Packs of taxpayer marchers shuffled down Pennsylvania Avenue proudly waving signs," wrote author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson. "'The Long Legged Mack Daddy,' 'Where's the Birth Certificate,' 'Mississippi Freedom Riders,' 'Whoa Boys Take it from Here' (Obama waving to black and Islamic militants). Many defiantly waved Confederate flags and the Texas state flag (separatist movement emblem). Meanwhile, South Carolina senator Jim DeMint, Congresspersons Mike Pence, Phil Gingrey and Marsha Blackburn, and organizer mouthpiece scandal-plagued former House majority leader Dick Armey profusely swore that the march had nothing to do with race, politics, or even President Obama. The racist flags, symbols and signs, though, gave big lie to their profuse denials. Racism was on full and ugly display on the Capitol Mall. No attempt was made to mask it. Some protesters seemed quite proud to openly send a message about race and Obama."

The Agonist blog provided the following sharp analysis of the overall meaning behind the DC protest this weekend: "These teabag parties represent the newly disenfranchised white, rural voter - the backbone of the Republican Party and its southern strategy. The outburst this week by Rep. Joe Wilson, the obscure South Carolina Congressman who called President Obama a liar during his speech to a joint session of Congress, was prompted by Obama's statement that nothing in the healthcare reform package he is proposing would provide care for illegal immigrants. The fear of immigrants is a primal constant in American politics, but since the adoption of the southern strategy, this fear is at its core a racial concern. Immigration in the past 30 years is no longer about poor white people coming from Europe, it's about brown people coming from Mexico. Now that an African-American is president, protests against illegal immigrants can be a respectable way for people to say what is really on their mind - they cannot accept a black person as president."

Posted by Eric Boehlert, Media Matters for America at 8:47 AM on September 18, 2009.

It's a demented national jihad, the likes of which this country has not seen in modern times.

21. Bonehead's a boother:
Asked to Denounce Language of Incitement, Boehner Calls for Rebellion

19 September 2009 :: J.E. Robertson

Last week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recalled how vitriolic language and extremist rallying cries escalated an atmosphere of political tension to the point where the San Francisco mayor and city councilman Harvey Milk were murdered in cold blood. Milk was the first openly gay man to win elected office in the United States, and the murderer was not a deranged member of the lunatic fringe, but a former colleague.

Speaker Pelosi teared up as she recalled the tragedy, and urged everyone involved in todays political disputes to curb our enthusiasm and refrain from using language that might suggest recourse to violence to people who might be not as stable as those speaking assume. The press sought comment from Republican House minority leader John Boehner (R-VA), whom they expected would second the Speakers call for civility and to refrain from the language of incitement.

But Rep. Boehners response was perhaps the most scandalous comment made by any politician in Washington, DC, in recent years. The House minority leader, one of the most influential politicians in the nation, when asked to call for restraint in language that might incite extremists to violence, answered by calling for open rebellion against the government run by Pres. Obama.

At rallies around the country, an increasingly hateful tone, complete with visual and rhetorical references to racist slurs against Pres. Obama, has emerged. From hanging the president in effigy (a rhetorical lynching) to portraying him as an African tribal witch-doctor, a monkey or an old-time minstrel show performer, extremist elements have penetrated conservative rallies against proposed healthcare reforms.

Boehners refusal to denounce violent rhetoric, and in fact, to reiterate the call for rebellion, suggests a moral and intellectual corruption that disqualifies him from any legitimate claim on political leadership in a society governed by the rule of law. Boehners response was far beyond disrespectful (to the Speaker, the Congress, conscientious conservatives, political progressives and the American people broadly); it was a sign of a deliberate will to sow hate and unrest in order to profit politically.

22. Glenn Becks Demagoguery, Right Wing Extremism, and Racism
Glenn Becks Demagoguery, Right Wing Extremism, and Racism

by Stephen Lendman
September 18th, 2009

At a time of 24-hour news and a proliferation of television and radio talk shows featuring hatemongers and demagogues like Rush Limbaugh, Bill OReilly, Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck may stand out as the most unhinged and extremist of all as evidenced by his jihad against anyone to the left of his views, disadvantaged minorities, Muslims, Latino immigrants, and progressive change in some of his most outlandish comments, including:

calling Barack Obama a racist (who) has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture; I dont know what it is.This guy is, I believe, a racist;

calling Van Jones an avowed, radical, revolutionary communist, then saying Jones is the tip of the iceberg as part of his over-the-top campaign against anyone less extremist than himself;

stating The most used phrase in my administration if I were to be President would be What the hell do you mean were out of missiles;

saying We need to be the first ones in the recruitment office lining up to shoot the bad Muslims in the head. In 10 years, Muslims and Arabs will be looking through a razor wire fence at the West;

telling Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison to prove to me that you are not working with our enemies;

advocating disposing of Guantanamo detainees by shooting them in the head;

accusing Al Gore of creating a new Hitler youth by promoting environmental awareness, and called for kicking California out of the union;

in 2003, telling listeners he was praying for a gruesome death for Democrat presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, and in 2005 saying he fantasized about strangling filmmaker Michael Moore;

characterizing Obamas new regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, as a crazed animal rights activist who believes that rats matter more than people; and

in September 2005, expressing open hate toward Katrina victims, calling them scumbags for not waiting patiently for emergency aid at a time their lives were devastated, and the Bush administration was forcibly removing them to distant locations, then preventing them from returning so predatory developers could exploit their neighborhoods for profit.
