Why people don't like barack hussein obama;
We can’t talk about his big ears 'cause that makes him nervous,
What are you on about? he makes fun of his own ears all the time, nobody said you cant. If your not voting for him because of his ears however then
dont you think that's a pritty stupid reason?
We can't talk about his mother, We can't talk about his father.
Nobody said you can't talk about his mother or father, if you wish to discuss his history go ahead and make a thread. If you wish to insult him
because his fathers kenyan and his mothers white, there is an obvious issue ain't there?
We can't talk about his grandmother unless he does, brings her up as a "typical white person."
What’s this with you can’t do this and you can’t do that?? Maybe you should substitute what you’re saying here for "we can’t insult his
biracial heritage, we cant insult his ancestral heritage, and we dont understand why we're being called bigots for acting this way". Maybe that sums
it up over what you’re trying to bring to us here. The thing is that nobody can stop you being a bigot but they can accuse you of being one and
quiet frankly your main issue is that you don’t like to be called one. How’s this, stop acting like a bigot and maybe you won't be called one.
We can't talk about his wife,
What about his wife? is it because she said "for the first time shes proud to be an american"? I'd say after 200years of slavery, another 100yrs
for segregation and another 40 years of being marginalized from generation to generation, damn straight its the first time shes proud to be an
american because a black man was given a chance to run for POTUS. After 7yrs of Bush I think anybody would be proud for the first time in while.
We can't talk about his preacher,
What the one who said GOD DAMN AMERICA for training the Iranians and Suddams regime in the 80's?
The one under another republican administration? GOD DAMN AMERICA for helping Osama Bin Laden in the 80's. again under a republican administration.
Your damn straight, GOD DAMN AMERICA.
We can't talk about his terrorist friends,
What terrorist friends? Do you have any evidence or are you basing this assumption off of his arabic middle name? Maybe this is why your being called
a bigot as well eh?
We can't talk about his voting record,
Whos saying this?? Who told you that you cant talk about his voting record?? if anything if people would stick to argueing his voting record maybe
there wouldnt be need for this personal bashing we have everywhere on this forum.
We can't talk about his religion.
What? That his a racist christian or a muslim? I cant tell because you people accuse him of both these things, kinda hypocritical dont you think
We can't talk about color; we can't talk about lack of color.
We can't talk about race.
Why can't you talk about skin colour or race? Is it because its an issue for you in how you vote? Is race a major factor in the way you vote? If you
wish to discuss his unique heritage Im all up for that but Im not sure whether you mean that or the fact you mean his race should be questioned for
We can't talk about bombers and mobsters who are his friends.
Which friends? Have the evidence to back it up, its typical of you people to post propaganda and rumors without backing it up.
We can't talk about schooling.
What schooling? That he went to a co-ed multi-racial and religious school in indonesia? Why dont you do research on the school he attended in
Indonesia buddy, you'll find that its been a multi-religious school since its founding. Just because Indonesia is an islamic nation does mean every
school and building will be islamic. Its not some kind of disease mmk?
We can't talk about his name, "Hussein."
By all means if you wish to learn about his name thats all fine. Hussein means hansom in Arabic. It is not a muslim name and there are such things as
"christian arabs" and "jewish arabs" who carry the name as well. Do you have an issue with his arabic name?
We can't talk about his lack of experience.
Nobody is stopping you my friend, if you want to bring it up thats find and dandy, we'll compare his lack of experience to Hillary Clintons so-called
"experience" and while we're at it we'll discuss how Hillary lost despite all the time, attention and power on her side.
We can't talk about his income.
Income, sure we can and while we're at it we'll discuss the $100million Clinton earned over the last 7yrs, the 30 or so million John McCain has and
the 100 million or so John McCains wife has, Cindy McCain?. Tg me when you post a thread on this topic, Ill be glad to join you in a debate about
income and eltism.
We can't talk about his flag pin.
Oh yess.. the flag pin, the one that shows everybody that your some kind a patriot or nationalist or whatever, sorry I get nationalist and patriot
mixed up when I think about the republicans. Why should he have to wear a flag pin to prove anything? The Bush administration used the flag pin as an
excuse to whoo people in for supporting a war of lies. Why the hell should he have to prove anything to Bush supporters?
This started out we can't call him a liberal.
Who says you cant?? He is a liberal, so what? The last 7yrs we saw ultra-conservatives run the nation after the 90s when the liberals were in control,
which decade was better?
You cant do this you cant do that is just utter BS, you want to have a debate on relevant issues for the election of POTUS thats fine, if you want to
act like bigot, you will be called one as well.
