Democrats Rangel With Racial Politics

I have heard, time and again, that people who do not vote for Obama are racists. It does not matter if you are 100% opposed to his political ideologies, if you don’t vote for him you are a racist. Not only are you a racist but you are denying the black community what they deserve. A female reporter named Fatimah Ali even says that it will cause a race war if people do not vote for Obama. I guess she thinks once you go Barack you never go back. She actually made the race war comment in a previous column. This week, after a few redneck crackers sent her emails, she is sure we are already in a race war.

I have little concern for this. I hardly see how 12% of the population could effect damage on 55% of it so a war in the traditional sense is probably not likely but I imagine there will be violence. If Obama wins there will be riots in celebration and if he loses there will be riots of anger. Either way cities will look like the Rodney King verdict all over again. Before you call me racist, I am merely expanding on what Ali wrote.

The Democrats and the black community (I know, redundant) are not afraid to point out any instance of perceived racism. They are so good at it they can listen to every day words and decide that they are racist code words for black people. I know that there will be some people who do not vote for Obama because he is black just as there are some people who will not vote for McCain because of his age. I hesitate to say that the 90% black vote for Obama has racist undertones because any Democrat, regardless of color, gets at least 90% of the vote. But there are definitely racial issues in the black community.

Charlie Rangel has been cooking his personal financial books for many years. His tax evasion and ethical violations have recently come to light and he is facing some serious problems. He was asked by Speaker Pelosi to step down as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee (though Pelosi says she did not discuss it with him). Pelosi has a bit of a problem because even if she wanted to remove him she can’t.

The Congressional Black Caucus has put its support 100% behind Rangel and they will not allow him to be removed. This caucus has so much power that one member said “”Nancy won’t challenge us on this, even if she wants to.”

Now, here is a man who has broken any number of laws, infractions that would land us in jail, and the Black Caucus thinks that he should keep his position. These people must feel that it is perfectly OK for a person to break the law so long as he is black (and a Democrat). If Rangel were white or a Republican they would be barking at the moon trying to get him removed. Is it any wonder that people view the black groups with contempt? They expect justice unless one of their own is involved.

I guess we can chalk this up to affirmative action which seems to be playing big on the national spotlight. Obama is the affirmative action candidate and Rangel is the recipient of the benefits of affirmative action.

He won’t be removed from his position and that decision is based solely on his skin color. I have a dream that one day people will be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

Looks like Charlie has not had that dream yet. Good thing. If we judged him by the content of his character he would be in jail already.

Way to have that most ethical Congress Madam Speaker.

Also, Rangel was in the process of divorcing his wife of 40 years and she intimate knowledge of their finances. I believe that these disclosures came to light as a result of disclosures related to the divorce. Anyway, Rangel has called off the divorce. I think that might be so that she cannot be compelled to testify against him. This makes it even more apparent that he is guilty and knew what he was doing.

Thank Goodness we have the National Black Republican Association

    “I have heard, time and again, that people who do not vote for Obama are racists.” Where? Who? When?

  2. Adam says:

    Saying there are racists voting against Obama isn’t the same as saying every person who votes against Obama is racist, which is what you imply people are saying, right?  I see nothing in that list that gives that idea weight.  Maybe I’m stretching.  I can see what you’re talking about a little maybe…

  3. Big Dog says:

    Some of them say that racists are voting against Obama and others clearly indicate if you do not vote for him you are a racist.  I heard this on the news during the primaries and I hear it from people around work.   I also read it with regard to West Virginia’s primary.

    If Obama loses the claim will be made that a racist America denied him his due.

  4. Big Dog says:

    The race card will get lots of play between now and 11-4

    Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius publicly considered the possibility that Sen. Barack Obama’s race might be a factor in this year’s presidential election during an appearance here Tuesday.

    “Have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?” Sebelius asked in response to a question about why the election is so close. “That may be a factor. All the code language, all that doesn’t show up in the polls. And that may be a factor for some people.”

  5. Reason says:

    But…but…Barack Obama is the “Post-Racial” Candidate…and did he mention that he’s black, that he doesn’t look like the other presidents on the dollar bills?

    I’ve heard it implied so many times that I’m not voting for Obama just because he’s black so many times its just stupid. It doesn’t matter that I outline the flaws in his foreign & domestic policies, his thin resume, and his dubious associations.

    ALso the real truth is that if Barack Obama were white we wouldn’t even be discussing him right now. We’d be talking about Hillary, and you can take that one to the bank.

  6. Big Dog says:

    This from CNN (in the comments)
    When over 90% of African-Americans are polled and saying they are voting for Obama, why is there no question as to racism being a possible motive of those voters? Why is it that anyone who doesn’t vote for Obama be considered racist? What if people just don’t agree with his policies? Obama is very liberal-leaning, is it so shocking that this would polarize voters?

    I am not voting for Obama because I do not agree with his positions however, if it upsets people then look at it this way, I am only voting against the part of him that is white.

  7. Adam says:

    I think it’s a total fabrication that Obama is where he is in the campaign because of his race.  The Clinton family has baggage.  Hillary’s campaign was run by an idiot.  The list goes on and on that lead to her failure in the race. Obama ran a stronger, more focused and tighter campaign, raised record amounts of money that allowed him to target more states at crunch time, and he energized a huge base of Democratic voters from coast to coast.  To write that off as skin color is a baseless insult and I don’t think it can be backed up by substantial evidence.

  8. Big Dog says:

    If Obama was a white guy with little experience and a first termer he would have been neaten by Hillary.  His skin color gave him nearly 90% of the black vote and at least half of that would have gone Hillary if Obama were white.

  9. Adam says:

    I didn’t vote for Obama in the DE primary and I’ve never been called racist…not yet anyway.  Maybe since I presume to support him in November I get a pass from these evil race baiters you’re constantly waring with here at your place…

  10. Big Dog says:

    So Adam, because you have not been called a racist it is not happening.

    I like that logic.

    I have never owned a slave so slavery never happened.  And if it did we should never pay reparations.

  11. Adam says:

    Woah now.  I’m not using personal testimony as a fact, simply making conversation. Slow that crazy train of yours right down…

  12. Big Dog says:

    Just using your words.  I have read enough stories to say this is happeneing.  There are two or three race baiting stories on Drudge right now.

    And I am serious about reparations.  I will pay them when someone can prove he was a slave.  If his ancestors were slaves I will personally pay them when they come to collect.

  13. Big Dog says:

    But let me end your dilemma, Racist!

    There, now you have been called a racist.

    Before anyone gets the wrong idea, I know Adam and he is not a racist.  Just a misguided liberal.  He views me as a misguided conservative so we get along fine with that.
