Oh boy do i have some thoughts
My background: im white, nice up-bringing
Oh man oh man oh man, where to start?
Obama being assassinated:
Lets look at some presidents who have been assasinated, and the circumstances of their surroundings --
1.) JFK - in a convertible with the top down, his head like a moving target, wide open, no protection. Assassinated because it was "easy"
2.) Abe Lincoln - in a theater with his back turned. A man was able to snea up behind him, easily, shoot him, and escape. Hardly a magnum opus for
secret service detail
My point is this: In a world where assassination ideas are thrown around like kids playing 'hot potato' - there are limitless precautions taken to
prevent such happenings. No longer can the general public walk up to a senator, like Bobby Kennedy, and shake their hand (or shoot them) without 500
Secret Service agents having prior sceened all participants, and monitoring the situation the entire time.
No longer can someone sneak up on the president in a theater
The president arrives in a limo - that has every contraption known to man to prevent injury, to heighten the defense - there are 3 or more limo's in
a line, and only a few people know which limo the president is in.
So i think its safe to say that Obama would not be assassinated. Though it is
possible....highly..highly....unlikely. Look how many people in
this country are foaming at the mouth for bush (because MSM tells them they should, mainly) ... bush hasnt been assassinated....
Race War and Moral obligation:
This has got to be (no offense to OP) the most ridiculous notion i've heard thus far. IMO - to even consider this idea is pure ignorance and
concocted out of hate (again, not aimed at OP).
In what way would Obama spark a race war if he was president?
Because he's black?
Please. Colin Powell is black and he's respected and praised by 'whitey'
Condy rice is praised by 'whitey'
Now - if we were talking about Al Sharpton, or Jessie Jackson getting elected for president, then i would give you the benefit of the doubt that it
could start a race war, because those two men are
But the only 'racist' things Obama has done have been invented by the Media.
We'll take these 1 at a time.
1.) His church. If you found out, tomorrow, that your church's leader (priest, rabbi, preacher, whatever you call them) was arrested for molesting
children, how would you feel? How would you feel is people started accusing you of supporting pedofilia? Defensive!
Now - lets say a video springs up of a sermon in your church, where the guy who was arrested (we'll call him Bob) is recorded as saying something
similar to the following:
"We should LOVE our children of today. Our youth is more precious than anything, they are beautiful and precious! Take them into your ARMS take
them under your WING, show them the light, and hold them dear"
How easy would the media be able to use that against your church? How easily would they be able to use your church against you?
"Well, Hexagram23, you attended the church....for 15 years!!! You are a pedofile too huh? I bet they have a basement where you rape young boys"
This is no different than what the 'right' media has done to make obama look racist. If obama were
a racist politician - do you REALLY think
he'd WILLINGLY submit himself to a racist organization? Don't you think that he would seperate himself from a racist church that talked about
'killing whitey' (which was never said, but you get my drift)
This is the funniest part about people who say Obama is too dumb to seperate himself. The same people who say he's too dumb to do this, are also the
same people who say he's going to start up the NWO from his presidential pedestal.
So..he's smart enough to take over the entire world
but too dumb to seperate himself from what he 'knows' is pure hatred and racism?
So race war?
On a small scale - sure, ill say there'd be a race war.
It'd start with some hick from Kentuck or Jarjuh
(georgia) gathering a bunch of his hooded breatheren to spew more hate.
Then - on the reverse side, you'd have the racist establishment of the Black Panthers lashing back at the whtie community, because there are a (small
amount) of white people blasting Obama.
Now that the black panthers have started to bash white people (instead of just the KKK) you get in the other white people who say "hey i resent that,
you're racist" which sparks a bigger debate
then you get in the moderate black people who think they'll only speak out against whitey when whitey is 'putting down the black man' and so they
join in the argument
now you have white v.s. black
when it started out as a dumb redneck hillbilly in a white hood said "We should go hang us some black folk"
If you are in opposition of any claim, anything said, anything done, then you should squash your opposition, not everyone that you think is like
them....if you're able to do this, then you prevent the potentially violent outcome. If you choose to fight back at their level (black panthers
lashing out against white america) then you've only made the problem worse.
So. Race war? Nah. It'll just be a bunch of dumb rednecks and ignorant white people, argueing with a bunch of black people with a chip on their
shoulder. War is too big of a word for them. Lets call it a
Racial playground scuffle
it kind of takes away from the dramatic impact that 'war' has, and immediately gives them less credibility.
