My issue, and I am repeating myself.... If anyone bothered to read the posts in the thread, is that Michelle Obama denigrated the black audience when she told them that they should vote a straight Democrat ticket.. Without regard to what the candidates say or do.


Yeah, you cannot post a direct quote because she didn't say that! LOL! And I am repeating myself:



“This isn’t about Barack. It’s not about the person on the ballot — it’s about you. And for most of the people that we’re talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this. That shouldn’t even come into the equation."


She said NOTHING about what the candidates say or do. She said, for MOST OF US, it's a Democratic ticket, regardless what people say about Barack Obama!

You can only be outraged by twisting her words. Rush, is that you?

Arrgh! She only "gave permission" because she was asked like this,


So can we ... if we go out to the polls, can we — say, we have a souls to polls on Sunday — can we do soul food after we vote?

it's not about the person who is on the ballot

Just vote straight Democrat, pay attention to nothing else.

Yeah...I don't get it either.

I thought fried chicken was kind of a general southern thing, not a race-specific thing.

I grew up in the North (extreme north) -- and KFC was "fried chicken". Col. Sanders is white, so I never associated fried chicken with African Americans.

You're taking it too seriously. It's much ado about nothing.

As I thought, you're taking blurbs of a discussion out of context. But if that makes you happy... Or outraged... go for it. I know what she actually said.

Here's an example of an out of context quote of yours:

Well, that is different from where you started with the chicken nonsense...

Now we can talk about the head of the Texas GOP racially denigrating his white constituents with this bit?


“We need you to … encourage all of your friends and neighbors to show up and cast their straight ticket Republican vote because this election is about the top of the ticket all the way down to the bottom of the ticket,” Republican Party of Texas Chairman Steve Munisteri wrote in an email sent out this week.

TEXAS GOP VOTE CAMPAIGN


Hence, in the battle to save America from what the truly evil Democratic party leadership has become and will certainly try to do if they retain power, I propose that we start an active campaign to encourage voters of all stripes and walks of life to “Vote Straight Ticket Republican”. (A friend counsels that it is a time saving device as well…”Vote One and Done”, meaning you can vote R and you are done rapidly.)

texasgopvote.com...

Those damn Texas GOP hate white people!

You want me to continue googling?

Let me repeat myself...

This OP is nonsense...Frankly it shines a light on how unchecked partisan vitriol can make some people look just insane

I have read the transcript of the show. I am aware of what she said and the context.

He is making the electorate that he is speaking to look stupid too....
But I don't see where he was speaking to a white audience.
Maybe if he mentioned white bread or mayonaisse.

Fergodsake ... still going, like the Energizer Bunny from Hell ...

It's Sunday that they're talking about, after church.

Southern tradition, eat fried chicken on Sunday.

Black, white, brown, ... all shades in between.

There are SO MANY things to really worry about and place our cares on.

Fried chicken, unless your name is Sanders, ain't one of them.

Arrgh, this is what I mean. That´s the whole point. What I am taking seriously is the apparent lack of reading comprehension skills among ATS members.

So it's not what she said, but rather the aggregate color of her audience that makes her racist?

With that thinking...I don't think I can lead this horse to water...see you on another thread.

Obama responded, “Absolutely. I give everyone full permission to eat some fried chicken after they vote.


If a white person had said this, they would have been called a racist -- saying the 'fried chicken' remark was a slur towards blacks


She "gives full permission" ... who in the Hell does she think she is? I wonder if our children's lunch menus will shortly be determined by how a parent is registered to vote.

Tell ya something else: I don't see racism here as much as I see her trying to dumb-down (or play to the ignorance of) a certain class of voter. She's lost her reason to be proud of America ... again. LOL

Yes. It IS about her talking to a predominately black audience as if they were children.
I think it is offensive.

Dang that uppity Mrs. Obama!

Who is she to go along with a joke, huh?!?

Who has ever heard of such a thing?

Just give it up, quit projecting your own issues onto MO.

Why are you guys up in arms about this non issue? Is it because you're upset because you feel like you're not allowed to tell people to eat fried chicken and it makes life unfair for you? Now you're a victim because if it? Now you feel the burn of reverse racism or white prejudice. Now your lives are worthless unless you fight the good fight and be allowed to say any damn thing you want. LOL You guys kill me.

I wonder how this entire topic would be taken if some Republican told a redneck audience that it's ok to watch nascar and drink a beer after they vote.

We would laugh at it and move along. As in this case with MO....laugh at it and move along. You guys are making a mountain out of a molehill.

THEY don't think it was offensive. Don't you think they are perfectly able to tell what's offensive to them? Or maybe you don't? I don't really think they need you to educate them on what they should be offended about. They're not children, you know... You don't have to be offended for them.

Are you saying it's not "politically correct" to talk to a black audience the same way one would talk to an audience of ANY race? And you're offended about it?
