Racism in the Race for the Oval Office.

Racism in the Race for the Oval Office.


A recent poll shows that Black Americans are supporting Obama 94 to 1 over McCain. During the Democratic primary Obama was running 90 to 10 margins over Clinton among black Americans. Now, you can put any spin you want on it and you can “prettify” it any way you choose, but the plain fact is… it is a display of raw racism. Black racism.

Pat Buchanan has a piece over at The Conservative Voice I think you’ll be interested in. It is titled: “Whitey need not apply”. You’ll find it at:

We continually hear calls for an “Honest Debate on Racism in America”. The problem with that is… black Americans are nowhere near ready for an honest debate about racism in this country.

I watched in the early days of the Obama campaign to see if I could identify the moment when those white voters, flocking to the Obama campaign, would begin to fall away. Well, it has happened. And it has happened earlier than I had expected.

A few days ago I wrote that Obama’s European Photo Op would hurt him among voters in America. There is now no doubt that rather than showing him as a “statesman” it showed him, more truthfully, as an American liberal/ socialist, which is exactly what we have been saying right from the start of his campaign. Somehow, and for whatever reason, the American voter had to see him in his element, the throngs of European socialists who chased after him, tongues dragging the ground, salivating for every pearl of wisdom dropping from his golden tonsils. It was a HUGE turn-off and, as we predicted, it hurt him back home. The image he projected back home was one of already having won the presidency and “strutting his stuff” among the peons of the world.

With the Mainstream Media/Press solidly in Obama’s corner, the American voter instinctively knows Obama is wrong for America. News reports tell us that the Media’s campaign donations go100 to 1 to Obama’s campaign and the democrats! As in all things, follow the money!

Take a look for yourself. There is an article over at The American Thinker entitled: “Big Media Puts It’s Money Where It’s Mouth Is”. This is an absolute “MUST READ”. You’ll find it at:

And… there is the pervasive feeling among American voters that Obama is simply too good to be true. Kathleen Parker has a piece titled: “Many Voters Wary of Sudden Superstar”. We recommend you read it. You’ll find it at:

Ms. Parker is “dead on” with her take on why Obama is not doing better in the polls here at home.

The bloom, it would seem, is off the rose. The rose colored glasses have faded and American voters are beginning to see Obama for what he really is…. and they don’t like it.

“The debate that will not happen” WOULD have been about racism in America. The reason it will not be held is because, to have an honest debate there would have to be discussions of black racism. So far, the political left in America and a large portion of the political right in America will not admit that Black people can be racists. We Americans today live in a hypocritical cocoon about racism. We know, instinctively, that black racism exists. We see it. And yet we deny it because it is the politic thing to do. We are living a lie, and we know it, and still we trudge on dragging this anvil through a minefield fused by overly sensitive “feelings”.

An “honest” debate about racism in America will never happen because… we are not willing to be honest. As a result we will never heal.

We White Southern Americans have learned to live with being called racists. We paid for our perceived sins, in spades, and yet more is required of us and we are unwilling to give anymore. Enough is enough. It has hardened us. We look at those calling for that “Honest Debate on Racism” and we smile at their naiveté. For, of all Americans, we know best that no debate will ever take place. Too much is at stake for those who claim themselves targets of racism.

Is there racism in America? Yes. Black and white racism? Yes. Will there continue to be racism in America? Yes. Will racism play a part in the Presidential Election this November? Yes. And there you have it. The truth.

Let me preface my remarks by saying that I am a former member of the Buchanan Brigade from the 80's.

Pat lost me when he tried to say that Hitler had a right to invade Poland.

I lost every ounce of respect I had for the man right there...and I remember when he was the lone voice of reason on The McLaughlin Group.

Longstreet said...

I never was a member of that Brigade. It may surprize you, Thunder Pig, but, for the most part, I agree with you. I think Pat was all wrong on Hitler's invasion of Poland. However, this partcular piece seems right on the money. Besides, I don't agree with anybody all the time.

Thanks for your comments!

best regards!

On the subject of “Obama’s European Photo Op,” it was sad to see that your media failed to pick up on the real reason for the large crowds in Berlin. The annual Wagner festival was held on the same day as Obama’s visit and the crowd was ‘hijacked’ to look good on tv. Did it not occur to anyone in the MSM that 250,000 random Germans cannot speak English to a standard good enough to understand the junior Senator from Illinois.

Since when has anyone won an election based on their popularity in another country?


Longstreet said...

Thanks for pointing that out! The American Press didn’t miss the Wagner Festival… they ignored it. They ignored the Wagner Festival and used the crowd in their all out effort to embellish Obama’s image. The Euro-crats in our press actually believe that Europe has it right and America is all wrong and that Obama is the “messiah” who will save us from ourselves and turn us into “Europe-West”.

Well, as we predicted… the "Euro-trip" “backfired” on Obama. It angered the folks out here in the hinterlands. As of today, Obama can do little more than “tie” McCain in the most recent polls. Why is he not racing ahead? The Euro-trip and his socialist philosophy, that’s why.

Today he has attacked OIL. He is now declaring we must rid ourselves of OIL! Egads, has the man no knowledge of the history of this great country? . Oil got us where we are today!

In any event, his “Obamissiah” image has suddenly worn very thin and folks , who before the Euro-trip, could not see through him are now being slammed with the empty suit that he really is.

Good to hear from you, Charlie!

Ya know, I get accused of being a racist, mostly because I am TOO honest concerning racism, partly because I am a racist...

We are ALL racists to some degree, and anyone that says otherwise is a liar and a fool...

Some folks think MEXICAN is a race, there's where the FOOL part comes in, Mexican is a nationality, not a race, NEGRO is a race, ASIAN and CAUCASIAN, those are races...

I absolutely hate WHITE TRASH, does that make ME a racist??

I have a black friend, one of the best friends I ever had in my life, he hates NIGGERS with a passion, does that make him a racist??

Longstreet, you and I know the difference in the terminologies, as do most reasonably well educated people, but I am appalled at the so-called smart people that throw the *racist* accusation at every turn..

And as an observation, I have noticed over the years that those that DO throw out the accusation of racism the most, usually ARE...

Yeah ok, that's why there was that study that showed that McCain gets way more positive press than Barack. The media doesn't even show McCain's obvious mistakes he makes when talking or giving answers. The guy is a buffoon as is anyone who votes for or supports him. Didn't ABC edit an answer to one of their questions to make it appear he at least understood the question? Remember one of the signs of aging id brain shrinkage and McCain doesn't have much in that department to begin with.......
