I love the assumptions on this thread! "Most of the Obama protesters are just angry white racists!" That's just absurd. Opposing Marxist policies gets you tagged a racist. This is right out of the playbooks of communism and fascism. White people are the new Jews!

What also amazes me about this thread is the lack of moderation! Just a few weeks earlier I was castigated for saying far less! Of course, I was criticizing Obama, so that makes it okay, right?

Man, this place is layer upon layer of hypocrisy!

What you are doing here is avoiding rational thinking. Instead of asking "Why are so many people upset", you sunk to labeling groups of individuals. Congrats you are a discriminative individual. FYI - African-Americans are also upset with Obama, and I know nine of them who went to these rallies.


Read the reply above...the reason people are upset..knowing it or not...is that they let this happen and can't fix it...and don't want to take responsibility. WE THE PEOPLE...have the power to do almost anything for or against this country. But slowly and now very quickly...we are giving up that power.

I know why people are upset...or at least people who know how to take responsibility for their past actions...

This problem we are having goes WAAAAY back...not just in January. So I'm not discriminating I'm hoping to show people another way of attacking the situation..instead of attacking the guy that OUR country voted for.

Labels and namecalling. Typical. That solves all the problems, doesn't it? If you can't counter their argument, just call them a racist.

Get into your car, drive to the local 7-11, and buy a clue. I heard they are on sale today. You don't have any idea who I am. But hey, keep going. I enjoy reading your mindless posts.

unlikelycandidate,
Would not protesting being one of these ways? Would not voting all of the bums out of office be one of these ways?

As soon as you get that you will stop blaming the resident black guy...


Yep, typical. "You're picking on Obama because he's black!!!!"

How about I'm picking on Obama because I don't agree with his BS policies???

unlikelycandidate,
So, what you have successfully done is say, "Anyone who protests or elects a new government is racist."

Your logic. Not mine.

Declaration of Independence
www.ushistory.org...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world...

Hmmm... I think that includes the freedom to protest.

Thank God someone else noticed. I was begining to think it was just happening in the south! I have noticed this happening a lot lately and very openly aggressive. It seems like it is "open season" on white people who do not go with the status quo. Very frightening to me. I try to see everyone as a person (I being pink do not care) not a color. Very sad it always comes down to black and white...

Pinkarella,
Lets fix this a little. Its open season on anyone who is against this administration. It does not matter if you are from one ethnic group or another, and it does not matter if you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent. What we are looking at is the media and administration using stereotypes to place individuals into groups. If you disagree with a specific issue, they will creatively label you accordingly. They are being discriminative towards others with another opinion. It does not mater to them who they are fighting against. Obama's administration and the news media wants to label people, so they can pass policy and keep themselves in power.

What happened to tolerance?

I would have to straight up call you a liar.

You do care about race.

If I came home with your daugther...no better yet if Obama came home with your daughter you wouldn't like it one bit.
Well since you can't get him on that ... what about the fact that he wants all americans to have a change...no matter their skin color nor financial standing...this is comnig from some one who doesn't like him very much.


I do not know you, so, I can't say I would be happy or upset. If you looked like a thug, or acted like a thug, I'd be pretty upset. If you looked like someone who had their head on straight and acted the same, I'd be ok with that.

The only reason that I would worry about race or religion is I think it makes things harder to be a cohesive unit. Marriage is hard enough when you come from the same socioeconomic background, change up core upbringings or religion, and it gets even harder.

Oh, and my roomate in college was black. She is also an electrical engineer whose family also had advanced degrees. If her son came and wanted to date my daughter, and was like her, I'd be totally fine with it

I'd love to say most Obama bashers aren't racist, but it really is a color issue. Sad, but true.


What a pile of crap. If Obama was 100% white, I would not revert and start kissing his ass like you do. I've lived in Illinois for 55 years and ran for US Congress. Obama was a nobody until just a few years ago. He is someone who voted 193 "present" instead of Yea or Nay, just so he would not be known for taking a stand. The only time he took a stand was to insure that when aborted babies still lived, that they would be left unattended to insure that they would die. He is a scum-bucket.

Very well said.

Man, if I had even one opportunity to give more than one star to a post, this would definitely be the time to use it.

I love when Barney Frank flipped out on this *****.

You shouldn't compare the President who's HALF BLACK to Hitler, to someone who's Jewish.

Don't call this guy elitist, he's been a minority his whole life.
1. Left Handed.
2. Jewish
3. Homosexual.

Look at the majority of the people poorly using their first amendment rights.

White, suburban people who are part of a stable middle class, never been poor or uninsured.
How about go into the cities and see the people who can't go to the doctor because they can't pay for it when they're in severe pain, or dying. This sickens me, healthcare should be a human right.
This BS about the government can't do anything right, yeah right.
Post office works fine for me and everyone else I know.
Last time I checked we had the most powerful military in the world.
Last time I checked we have the largest economy in the world.
Last time I checked we kept the country together during the Civil War.
Last time I checked we were still a superpower.

I have government healthcare already because I'm in the military.
Works PERFECT for me.
Healthcare for the ALL THE people.
F the bourgeois
Werd.

And this is exactly why, racism continues in the United States. Ignorance. Racism would be a non-issue, if people moved past it. But it seems that those who are attempting to 'fight' racism, are those that continue to push 'racism' as an excuse for everything. What a load of crap. I will tell you right now, racism is a huge money maker. It might as well be marketed out as a business.

[edit on 29-8-2009 by IKnowNothing]


Well, the fact is most individuals who dislike Obama are indeed racist...especially at those lovely intelligent town hall meetings.

They refuse to accept him as their president because of his African American descent. I know it's difficult to grasp, but it's true.


I know A LOT of Obama haters. What do they hate exactly? His color. Nothing more.

I would really like to know where you are getting this information. Please share.

Instead of take vacations...rape and invade countries killing millions of innocent people...and being...well not smart with words..hows that for change...which is the reason why we have elections. If you don't like it...well got to Iraq...or China for that matter..I'm sure they are better.


You do realize that the US is at war right now, we are going thru tough economic times, and Obama is on vacation?
And I don't think this is the first one he's taken, either.

Of course, anytime that Bush went on vacation, the press was all over it.


Actually it was his first, and it was only for a week.

I guess that the tax payer funded night out with his wife doesn't count.


And I think this one is longer than a week. Did some time at Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, then off to the Vineyard to murder Teddy.
