Fear of A Black President: 22 Days until the Election

Hey, Im trying to run a respectable campaign here.

"Hey, I'm trying to run a respectable campaign here."

“This is not a man who sees America as you see it and how I see America.”

— Sarah Palin speaking of Barack Obama.

“I don’t think the United States is ready for a black person to be president,” said Lucille Anderson, 73, from Lawsonville (North Carolina)  “I think the blacks would be mean to us … they’d probably take us over.


Sarah Palin meet Lucille Anderson.  She’s your kind of American.

ITEM: If your fender says Change, don’t park here.

A parking lot owner in Gibsonville, NC, decided supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama are no longer welcome to use his property, WFMY’s Julia Bagg reported.

Lot owner Tim Henderson posted two identical signs that warned: ‘no parking’ for Obama supporters or people with Obama bumper stickers.”

“I don’t expect to go after anybody with a baseball bat,” Henderson said. “I would grin at them and laugh and ask them if they could read English.”

State workers who have used the parking lot for years complained that the new rule infringed on their rights. Some had Obama/Biden stickers in their windows.

“It’s telling me because I have a sticker or I believe in something, I’m not allowed to park here and this is where I park for work, I have to park here,” said Dave Dicke, an Obama supporter.

Henderson initially said the signs would stay up through the November election.

After a local news station reported the story, Mayor Lenny Williams made an agreement with Henderson for the removal of the signs.

“If he said Obama folks could park here, but McCain [supporters] couldn’t, I wouldn’t like that either,” Mayor Williams said.


ITEM: A Florida middle school teacher has been disciplined for writing a racially offensive phrase about Barack Obama on his classroom dry-erase board last month.

The Tallahassee Democrat reported Friday that school officials learned the teacher wrote the phrase in a 7th grade class of mostly white students.

The phrase, which invoked Obama’s campaign slogan, said, “C.H.A.N.G.E. — Come Help A Nigger Get Elected.”

According to the newspaper, the teacher, Greg Howard, was suspended for 10 days without pay and will be forced to write a letter of apology to the students. He will also be reassigned to teach in the adult education program.


ITEM: In April, Rep. Geoff Davis, R-Ky., told the state’s annual Lincoln Day dinner that he was unimpressed with Obama’s performance during a war simulation for members of Congress and referred to Obama as “boy.”

“That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button,” Davis said. “He could not make a decision in that simulation that related to a nuclear threat to this country.


ITEM: Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland used the racially-tinged term “uppity” to describe Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Thursday.

Westmoreland was discussing vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s speech with reporters outside the House chamber and was asked to compare her with Michelle Obama.

“Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity,” Westmoreland said.

Asked to clarify that he used the word “uppity,” Westmoreland said, “Uppity, yeah.”


ITEM: LAKEVILLE, Minn. – The anger is getting raw at Republican rallies and John McCain is acting to tamp it down. McCain was booed by his own supporters Friday when, in an abrupt switch from raising questions about Barack Obama‘s character, he described the Democrat as a “decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.”

A sense of grievance spilling into rage has gripped some GOP events this week as McCain supporters see his presidential campaign lag against Obama. Some in the audience are making it personal, against the Democrat. Shouts of “traitor,” “terrorist,” “treason,” “liar,” and even “off with his head” have rung from the crowd at McCain and Sarah Palin rallies, and gone unchallenged by them.

McCain changed his tone Friday when supporters at a town hall pressed him to be rougher on Obama. A voter said, “The people here in Minnesota want to see a real fight.” Another said Obama would lead the U.S. into socialism. Another said he did not want his unborn child raised in a country led by Obama.

“If you want a fight, we will fight,” McCain said. “But we will be respectful. I admire Sen. Obama and his accomplishments.” When people booed, he cut them off.

“I don’t mean that has to reduce your ferocity,” he said. “I just mean to say you have to be respectful.”


McCain has been around the block long enough to know that passion from the audience is one thing, but anger is something else. When your own supporters are booing you for calling for civility and respect, that’s when you know this shit has gone way too far.

Palin, the empty-headed newbie,  has never been on a stage this large. She’s speaking before thousands of admirers and like a rock star, she’s riding the wave. Even if the ticket falls short next month, she has elevated her own star within the GOP and we haven’t heard the last from her.

But that doesn’t mean she knows when to pull back on the reigns and temper her criticisms with a little statesmanship. It’s not enough to simply diss Obama.  When she becomes a cheerleader for intolerance and disrespect, she’s gone way too far.

If she’s McCain “pitbull with lipstick,” he’d better know when to yank that chain before she goes too far and gets a liking for the taste of blood. Throwing red meat to the Palin pit bull and the angry crowds has its risks if McCain loses control.

Some nitwit stood up and told McCain she was afraid of Obama because he was a “Arab.”  He corrected her and said he wasn’t someone she had to be afraid of as president.

After the rally, a reporter asked the woman if McCain had relieved her fears.  She replied she thought Obama was a “Muslim.”

Ooh.  Im shaking.

McCain: "Meet me outside and I'll kick your you-know what." Obama: "Ooh. I'm shaking."

You can’t fix stupid.  You can’t solve ignorance.

Now the old fart is promising to whip Obama’s ass in the last debate Wednesday.

What a guy.  What a macho stud.

What a totally dried-up shriveled little prick.

One thought on “Fear of A Black President: 22 Days until the Election

  1. OK, So I’m a white woman from the burbs and I am voting for the brother! I am so ready for change that I don’t care if the mans skin is purple I am voting the best man for the job. Look into McCain’s eyes … They are beady little eyes and thems the kind of eyes that scare this ole honkie to no end!

    I am also caring for a 91 year old white woman and let me tell you what she says about a “darky” running the country. She says, and I quote, “If we let him in there we won’t be able to keep them in line”. She goes on to say, “What if they push us around”? I responded with, “You mean like we did to them all those many years ago? And she said, “Yes”! I said, “So you think that if a black man is the president of the united states he will turn back the clock 200 years and enslave the white man”? And she said, “It could happen”. I told her, “NO, that isn’t going to happen”. Sick stuff I tell ya and so deep seeded.

    I grew up in Detroit with my Grandfather standing on the porch screaming names at the black kids playing outside. Twice they shot out his picture window and twice they missed him. He moved but never once did he take responiblity for his actons. As a child I remember thinking that he didn’t sound or look very nice and while hating the black race was (to a point) shoved down my throat I never bought into it. Something deep inside of me told hating wasn’t good, being mean wasn’t good … for any reason.

    Obama for President!

    Just imagine what hostory will say 100 years from now?
