Congressional Black Caucus Chairman, Representative Emanuel Cleaver, said that if Obama was a white guy the CBC would likely be marching on the White House. Cleaver couched his racism by claiming that the CBC reaction is less volatile because they don’t want to do anything to empower people who hate Obama.
Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.” The Hill
Cleaver gives the impression that he and his CBC are not doing anything because there are people who hate Obama and his underlying message (let’s call it black code) is that racists want to hurt Obama and the CBC does not want to help with that.
The violence comes from the deranged (and racist) left. They are the ones out biting off fingers and shooting members of Congress. They are the ones who have assassinated or attempted to assassinate US presidents so Cleaver, while playing the veiled (black code) race card is actually worried about a deranged liberal doing something bad.
He openly admits that he would not be worried about people who hated Bill Clinton. If Clinton were president then Cleaver would be marching on the White House and would not care about people who hated ole Bill (this gives credence to the claim it is a veiled message about racism).
The left never worried about what it did and how it would affect George Bush. The left was happy when Bush was threatened or there was a chance he would be hurt. The left openly carried signs calling for his assassination and the left made a movie that depicted Bush being assassinated.
And yet, it is the right who is called violent…
The CBC has a bunch of racists as members. If, given similar circumstances, they would march on a white president but not on a black one then they are racists.
Keep in mind, this group (along with its race baiting liberal followers) tells us that the TEA Party is a racist organization because it sprung up during a black man’s tenure and not a white man’s. These people will claim that opposition to big government and out of control spending is racist because Obama is black and Bush received no such criticism (a blatant lie).
Yes, it is racist to criticize Obama because he is black but it is not racist to state that you would be marching on a white president if he had the same record as the black one.
What should we expect from an organization that is racist in its own formation? It is the black caucus (white people are not allowed to join it) and there is no Congressional White Caucus (if there was the blacks, especially those in the CBC, would call it racist).
Let us recap. Emanuel Cleaver, the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, has stated that if a white guy was president the CBC would likely be marching on the White House because of the current conditions but since a black guy is there they won’t do it. The idea of marching on the White House is an admission that the current occupant is doing a poor job but since he is black he should not be held to the same standard as any white guy who holds the office. When conditions are bad march on the white guy but not the black guy.
Different standards for the same job.
Yep, Obama is the affirmative action president.
Never surrender, never submit.
