Last week, while he was in Malaysia, Obama saw a golden opportunity to advance his party’s wilting political prospects presented by an unlikely partner, a prostitute-patronizing, repulsive goofball, who happens to own an NBA team and who has a “girlfriend” who likes to post photos on Instagram. (Is “girlfriend” now the P.C. term for “whore?” I didn’t get the memo.) And our Dear Reader took that opportunity, and by “took the opportunity,” I mean that he enlisted the assistance of NBC “News” Obama suck-up Chuck Todd to help him exploit his golden ticket, his black skin privilege.
The November 2014 elections are coming up fast, and as they see the Dear Reader’s poll numbers dropping like a stone, the Democrats are getting increasingly desperate, so it’s time to return to the go-to play in their hackneyed playbook; specifically, terrifying their minority supporters into believing that a Republican victory signals the return of Jim Crow and segregation. Never mind that it was the DEMOCRAT party that came up with those policies, but since when do facts matter? The lapdog press will gloss over any information that interferes with the agenda.
Shining a spotlight on America’s (or do you say “Amerikkka”?) unredeemable racism will have additional benefits. It will appeal to any emotionally-driven white voters who are susceptible to being guilted into supporting Democrats, which is precisely how Obama got elected in the first place. (That, and that non-existent vote fraud that a guy who came up in the Chicago political machine wouldn’t know anything about.) They also hope that it will distract voters from his many failures, and his relentless lawlessness.
So, F. Chuck, asked Obama about what was obviously the most important issue facing our country and the world today. No, not the exploding Middle East, with the collapsing peace process, Syria aflame, with civilians being slaughtered and Islamist terrorists running wild, Vladimir Putin laughing his rear end off over Obama’s implementing that “flexibility” he promised Mevedev before our presidential election, or the stagnant U.S. economy in which 1 in 5 households have no working adult. No, Silly Bitter Clinger. The empty suit masquerading as Leader of the Free World needed to weigh in on this NBA clown and the tape his “girlfriend” leaked to TMZ.
His answer to the set up question was a classic Obama two-step. This is a dance he’s been doing his entire political career. The first step is always designed to make him appear reasonable and folksy, and this latest con was no exception. From CBS News:
“When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk,” Obama said when asked to respond to Donald Sterling’s reported comments.
But there is always another shoe to drop, the one in which he connects the comments of “ignorant folks” to a global critique of what he views as a very flawed, if not irreversibly defective, country, one in which the police act “stupidly,” and “as a black man, he can get shot going to the gas station.” He continued:
“The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that’s still there, the vestiges of discrimination,” Obama said during a news conference in Malaysia, where he was traveling.
“We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often,” he added. “And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why statements like this stand out so much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.”
“The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation?” Actually, it’s largely the fault of his party, the Democrat party, that those things are our legacy, but leave that aside for now. This comment from the man who claims to be the president of all of the people of the United States is more offensive than Mr. Sterling’s private comments to some semi-deformed bimbo. Every single American should be personally insulted that this affirmative-action assisted, unqualified disaster dared to draw any conclusion about the racial attitudes of “The United States” based on the statements of one extreme repulsivo, who admits consorting with prostitutes and has been a poster boy for bad behavior for decades.
His remarks have nothing to do with, and say nothing about, our country’s “legacy”, or it’s current attitudes on race, and if he doesn’t know that, his decades steeped in radical leftist ideology have left him completely incapable of rational thought. I suspect, though, that he does know exactly what he’s doing, hoping that his favorite card in the deck, the race card, will save the day again.
At least he didn’t say that Don Sterling is a typical white person.
