The Real Racism In America

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Now that the party is over, and the adulation of the Almighty Obama has abated somewhat, and little remains but the shouting, one thing has become painfully clear:

Racism is alive and thriving in the United States of America.

I listened to NPR radio over the weekend. I listened to news report after news report, all NPR commentators absolutely giddy over the fact that Barack Hussein Obama has been elected President.

Well, not exactly.

They were actually expressing a euphoric excitement over the fact that a black man had been elected President. Judging by the level of the fervor, and the sheer number of times his race was mentioned, it wouldn't matter to them if a drug crazed mass murdering gang leader had been elected, as long as he was a black drug crazed mass murdering gang leader.

Dr. Martin Luther King, black civil rights leader (and Republican), once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

On the surface, it would appear that this nation has now achieved Dr. Kings goal with the election of Barack Hussein Obama, a man who is at least half black.

But, look deeper. That doesn't appear to be the case, after all.

Obama has, throughout his lifetime, surrounded himself with, befriended, and associated with men and women of deplorable character. Men like William Ayres, an admitted unrepentant domestic terrorist.

"Reverend" (and I use the term loosely) Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semitic, America hating, racist, so-called pastor.

Tony Rezko, a convicted corrupt real estate swindler and slum lord.

Frank Marshall Davis, a card carrying member of the Communist party, who Obama reveres as one of his primary mentors.

Radically Liberal Catholic minister Father Michael Phleger, another America hating cleric.

Many, many other people of at least questionable character, several of whom are now part of Obama's cabinet.

Obama's own wife, Michelle, who stated on at least two occasions publicly, and who knows how many times privately, that she wasn't proud of America until her husband was considered worthy of a Presidential run. She also said America is a downright mean country.

Now she's America's first lady.

For shame, for shame.

A man is judged by the company he keeps. Obama keeps bad company.

But, if that isn't enough, what about Obama's own character?

After those same associations with men and women of questionable and unquestionably bad character became a political liability, he discarded them like a used condom. A man with character stands by his friends regardless. Especially if he believes they have been misjudged and/or impugned, as Obama has repeatedly stated.

How did Obama react to the criticism of his associates again?

Four times he voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIP) as a State Senator in Illinois. That, in a nutshell, means he voted to allow newborn babies to die alone and untended. Four times!

He supports infanticide. I doubt Dr. King would have advocated that. A man of character doesn't kill babies.

Then there's the issue of Obama's courting and accepting campaign contributions from foreign contributors. Accepting contributions from foreigners (as in, not American citizens) is bad enough (and illegal), but many came from nations that actively support terrorism. Terrorism against America and her allies. A man of character would reject those contributions.

He trained workers for ACORN, an organization that not only practices voter fraud, they perfect it. A man of good character would distance himself from an organization like that, but not Obama. He embraced them.

Obama has advocated Marxist principles and suggested that America's Constitution is outdated. He has equated our Constitution with Nazi principles. An American President that espouses Marxist and anti-American philosophies is a President without character.

I am going to leave out the various subversive organizations and people that he represented as an attorney at law. Legal representation of scum is not automatically evidence of bad character.

But it has been, and can be argued that accepting those kinds of cases on a regular basis constitutes such evidence. And he has accepted many.

Now we come around again to my stated point:

Racism in America.

Barack Hussein Obama was not elected because of the content of his character. He was elected because he is black.

That is racism.

Many people would call that reverse racism, but that term would suggest whites are the only race capable of discriminating against other races. That is not true.

Racism is racism. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines racism as:

1. a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

2. racial prejudice or discrimination.

See? Blacks are as capable of racism as whites.

I'll repeat. Obama wasn't elected because he had good character. He was elected because of the color of his skin.

I don't think that was what Dr. King had in mind.

Yes, the racism from the Left comes through loud and clear. They judged Obama on the color of his skin and not the content of his character. I keep hoping that they'll catch up to conservatives someday and fulfill Rev. King's dream just like we have.

Kris said... words exactly.

To which one might add:
he betrayed his own grandmother, the woman who sacrificed to raise him while his wacky birth mother was off pursuing her career as semi-pro anthropologist in Indonesia. He claimed that his grandmother had used a racial epither in front of him (in his book Dreams From My Father, he said something a little different, but that's another story). He used that anecdote to try to excuse his refusal to denounce Wright (you know, "I could no more disown my own grandmother than...") a month before we went and denounced Wright anyway. What a creep. His own grandmother!

Yes, Jim, thanks. I forgot several other examples of Obama's stunning lack of character. There is just too much. I can't remember everything. I did good to list what I did, believe me. I don't know if blogger allows enough space to list examples of Obama's lack of character.

It all adds up to one thing, Obama is an empty head in an empty suit, and is NOT worthy of the title President. This tells volumes about the moral character (or lack there of) of those who elected him.

I only hope that there is enough left of America after he is out of office, to be able to salvage.

I don't believe that's what Dr. King had in mind either, Mark.

I want to thank you for your comment to an anonymous racist on my post regarding Al Quaeda suffering from the Black Plague. You expressed my feelings so well that I didn't have to bother. I doubt that nutjob will return but I hope he does. I want him (or her) to read that! LOL!

Joe said...

Very well said, and as you know, agreed with (by me).

Krystal said...

I couldn't have said it any better. Preach on, brother, preach on!

BTW, I've been both a physical and verbal victim of black on white racist attack.

Though I believe that Barry did benefit by being a black man, I wonder if it occurs to him that it could be so. I didn't read either of his books, but I understand that there were racial references in at least one of them. He has also played the race card pre-emptively and he learned his version of Christianity under a race-baiting pastor of a Black Liberation Theology church. It's more natural to wonder if one lost a gig over race, but to gain one because of it, I wonder if he ever considers it and if so, does he care.
