America, Are You Sick of Being Called a Racist if you Don’t Vote For Obama? … AP-Yahoo News poll Blames Racism


AMERICA … once again is told that if Obama does not win the election its because you are RACIST.  You have to be a racist if you don’t vote for “The Chosen One”.


Never has the race card been played more often and more shamelessly than during the 2008 run for the White House. An AP-Yahoo News poll has put forth the notion that some white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks. The purpose of the poll was to determine why the MSM’s Chosen One, the Obamamessiah is locked in a close race with McCain even as the political landscape seems to favor Democrats. No, the purpose of the poll was to make excuses and guilt people into voting for Obama. I guess Republicans can take consolation in at least they were not being called racists this time. I would almost ask the question, where is the poll that asks why an overwhelming number of blacks are voting for Obama and not McCain? Must be because of Obama’s political experience.

Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them “lazy,” “violent,” responsible for their own troubles.

More than a third of all white Democrats and independents — voters Obama can’t win the White House without — agreed with at least one negative adjective about blacks, according to the survey, and they are significantly less likely to vote for Obama than those who don’t have such views.

News flash to the MSM, their polling cronies and the rest of the “America is racist” contingency … if Barack Obama loses the 2008 Presidential Election it will be because of the following reasons, not because he is black.

The Gateway Pundit brings up a good point that questions whether Barack Obama and his campaign have brought voters opinions and views upon themselves. You reap what you sow. Maybe its because Michelle Obama has never been proud of America before her husband ran for the Presidency. Maybe it’s because Obama belonged to a race-baiting church headed by Reverend Jeremiah Wright for 20 years and never realized it, but they were just words. Maybe its because small town America “white folk” don’t need to here that they cling to their bibles and guns.

Of course… When Obama is caught declaring “white folk’s greed runs a world in need” it doesn’t help elevate him in the eyes of white voters. Those racist attacks against whites probably won’t help Obama much on the campaign trail.

As per Wake Up America, the poll finds that 70 percent of self identified Democrats support Barack Obama while 85 percent of Republicans support John McCain. Could it be because general election voting democrats are not as liberal as primary voting ones? For all the negative and misleading ads put out by the Obama campaign regarding McCain being tied to GWB, McCain is far from a rubber stamp for Bush and has a history of crossing the aisle.

Exit question: How many times does it take that white people are told that they are racist before they potentially begin to develop racist attitudes because of the constant insinuation? For a campaign that was not supposed to be about race, Obama has certainly played that card one too many times.

      it is only rational to not give the GOP another 4 years in power after screwing up so royally over the last 7,5 years.

      then i see next to a few rational arguments to not vote for Obama also many irrational gut-arguments why some still want to give the GOP another chance.

      those few might be racists, who of course won’t acknowledge that – therefore they search for irrational motives (often debunked smears) and bring them up as a cover.

      but i am sure this is a very small fringe group.
      maybe the children from the pre-civil rights act southern democrats.

      they will however make a lot of noise because they want to hear confirmation from other likeminded folks to have the illusion that they are not on their own.

    2. SL-Gloria on September 20th, 2008 6:24 pm

      Obama has such an inferiority complex…he refuges himself among the elite left, most of which are white, and the iconic black political, social and business leaders, yet he shuns the more than 12 MM Afro-American unregistered voters in the southern states, precisely because due to their racial and socioeconomic history, they have less education and lesser economic status. He is racist and social prejudiced and I hope he ends up needing the black community in the South when the tally finally comes around.

    3. WhiteTrashforPalin on September 20th, 2008 6:42 pm

      So Carly Fiorina is now an expert at telling us that John McCain, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Sara Palin are not qualified to run a major corporation as a CEO? She was a no show today.. can’t believe she worked for John McCain’s campaign as an economic advisor..and would say that.. look at her record… What a doofus.. btw when she was fired..she got $42 million.

      Fiorina was CEO of Hewlett-Packard from July 1999 to February 2005. During this period, the stock price dropped 44 percent, and she was run out of the company after making many strategic blunders. The stock price is up 124 percent since her removal.

    4. C J on September 20th, 2008 6:51 pm

      I stop by every now and then to check on the Holloway case.

      This Obama spew you initiated is just pure garbage.

    5. WhiteTrashforPalin on September 20th, 2008 6:59 pm

      They are the ones who always bring up racism.. and if you don’t like them you are racist.. works both ways.. Also don’t like Obama scaring the elderly and minorities with lies..

      In Daytona Beach, Obama said that “if my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would’ve had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week.” He referred to “elderly women” at risk of poverty, and said families would be scrambling to support “grandmothers and grandfathers.”

      That’s not true.

      A new Obama ad characterizes the “Bush-McCain privatization plan” as “cutting Social Security Benefits in half.” This is a falsehood sure to frighten seniors who rely on their Social Security checks. In truth, McCain does not propose to cut those checks at all. not true

      A Spanish-language ad from Obama calls McCain a friend of Rush Limbaugh and says Limbaugh called Mexicans “stupid.” A McCain ad in Spanish misrepresents Obama’s role on immigration legislation.
      Summary False

      An Obama TV ad tells Spanish-speaking viewers that McCain is “friends” with Rush Limbaugh, and quotes the radio host as calling Mexicans “stupid and unqualified” and telling them to “shut up or get out.” The ad is doubly misleading. Limbaugh has until recently disparaged McCain repeatedly to his audience. And Limbaugh says his words are ripped out of context and twisted in the ad. In any case they don’t represent McCain’s position.

      Biden proved once again that it doesn’t take outright falsehoods to create a skewed impression of one’s opponent. We found in a Sept. 15 speech that:

      An Obama ad plays fast and loose with McCain’s voting record on education and proposals as a presidential candidate.

    6. Richard on September 20th, 2008 7:48 pm

      I wonder how many people were interviewed in this startling poll?

      Some Democrats harbor negative feelings toward blacks … not individual blacks, but blacks as a race … no kidding?

      I know people who harbor negative feelings towards Mexicans … not as individuals, but who are suspicious about them as a group.

      I bet the same thing can be said about most groups … though I’ve never yet heard of anyone prejudiced against Andorrans. Never met any.

      I suspect that there are some ethnic groups that are prejudiced against whites … that’s certainly the case if you judge them by the inflammatory rhetoric that is circulated.

      Frankly, there are always stereotypes circling around. I remember one Italian family telling me that they didn’t trust Italians ….

      Anyway, I don’t think that there’s anything new or startling in this. Unfortunate, yes; deplorable, certainly.

      But unpredictable? Go to the Middle East and take a poll on attitudes toward Americans … any guesses on what the answers will be?

      I am convinced that SOME people will vote against Obama because he is black, and for no other reason. For the same reason, others will vote for him.

      Just as SOME people will no doubt support Sarah Palin because she is of a certain gender.

      There are always idiots in the world. What else is new?

      Personally, I find it inspiring that Obama, who is black, is also a serious candidate to lead our nation. Isn’t that the important news?

    7. LouiseVargas on September 20th, 2008 8:31 pm

      McCain Pallin will not win because she has zero foreign affairs experience. Can you imagine John McCain dead and Sarah having to face Putin? Not to mention that we will be attacked five minutes after she assumes power. Obama may win but he will be assassinated and we will have President Joe Biden.

    8. Susan on September 20th, 2008 8:36 pm

      Sure, blame it on “whitey” if OSAMA Barack SADDAM HUSSEIN Obama doesn’t win!! That shows just how shallow and narrowminded some people really are…

      I’m not voting for Obama, but that doesn’t make me a racist. I’m a Republican and will vote for McCain :-)

    9. minnesota dad on September 20th, 2008 9:20 pm


      Ummmm. LouiseVargas….

      Could you explain what foreign affairs experience Barack Obama has (please don’t include a whirlwind tour done to attempt to bolster his foreign affairs experience).

      Could you imagine someone with NO foriegn affairs experience having to face Putin? Me neither. Vote McCain.

      In fact, could you provide me with Barack’s resume items which indicate that he has been a leader/executive? I have asked a few other posters to educate me on this and they always go quiet when I ask this simple question.

      Why do you discriminate against someone’s age? While many are playing the race card, at the same time they are acting like you….discriminating regarding someone’s age.

      As I have said before on this board: AGE, RACE, or SEX should not be a criteria for electing someone. Clearly, you are discriminating in your post. Stop it.


    10. Kay Zee Ess on September 20th, 2008 9:49 pm

      Holy Mackeral, Andy!

      Finding an excuse to lose before the election is over? I don’t buy that noise. People will look not in their hearts but their pocketbooks and tables, their job security and their homes to see if they want Obama to lead. It all is going to boil down to the economy as it always has historically.

      I think if McCain is true to his word and platform he should pull through although I would pray that he survives 8 years so the VP( the bizarro Obama)doesn’t take over and get us involved in a crisis we can’t get out of.

      It may have been more wishful thinking than a freudian slip when she mentioned the Palin-McCain ticket at some rally rather than the McCain-Palin ticket.

      I do not know if she is stable enough to really lead but time will tell I guess.

    11. lise on September 20th, 2008 10:55 pm

      That questione could go either way if you vote for him does that make you a racist? The word racist can be use on white and blacks alike somehow it seems to be only looked at as a issue of white americans but I know plenty of racist blacks. Get real America yes some will vote for him because he is black even though he is actually biracial.

    12. Tumbleweed on September 20th, 2008 11:09 pm

      Get over it if Obama loses it will be becuase of his socialist agenda and the unsavory friends he keeps along with his total lack of international affairs experience. I can just hardly wait to
      become a patriot and good neighbor and let the government take what I worked so hard to earn and give it to somebody that doen’s deserveit, NOT!

    13. Dan on September 21st, 2008 1:02 am

      Give sarah a break, she may be weak in some areas but remember she has advisors and she is very capable of making rational decisions and hard ball decisions as well. Every president has advisors and they use them,, not a one of them knew everything there is to know, they had to learn it. You people who vote for obama need to remember you did and brush up on the impeachment process, we all are gonna need it. He wants to change america for sure, but not the change we the people want, mark my words folks. His wife shows nothing but hatred in her eyes and her expressions, to me she looks like a chip monk waiting to spit. She has one hell of a chip on her shoulder, maybe Sarah will knock it off for her.

    14. brie. on September 21st, 2008 2:23 am

      Obama isn’t about people, he’s about Obama…scaring the elderly people in Florida about losing some of their social security, that is not going to happen and how many of those folks found what he said life threatening….

      Talk about not caring, his contributions to charity are next to nothing…in the beginning yrs of 2000 he gave less than 1% of his income…increased a wee bit over the yrs but not much…a 6.4% contribution in 2006…for someone worth 7 million dollars that is a complete joke…what a selfish a~~hole…

      He claims he made his money through book sales…yea right!…

    15. BUN on September 21st, 2008 7:10 am

      #7 LouiseV….so what you are able to “foresee” is either a killed off president or a drop dead president and either way we get the VP for our official president? WOW, you have great abilities to see into the future, go out and find missing folks and please tell us all about the future..LOL

    16. dennisintn on September 21st, 2008 7:49 am

      barack obama is an empty suit who was politically born and raised in the most corrupt political atmosphere in the country, possibly the world. he has never had a bad word for corrupt politicians or religious figures. obama’s dangerously inept foreign policy ideas were highlighted by his suggestion to refer the russian invasion of georgia to the u.n. security council. this in spite of his bragging about having a cadre of 300 international relations experts that counsel him. his national economic policy is highlighted by his initial screeching “the sky is falling” all is doomed reaction to the wall street fiasco. he lies like a rug, flip-flops on opinions and then denies the change, and never, ever admits he was wrong about anything. he endangered the lives of american soldiers by giving anti-war speeches and accused them of bombing and killing iraqi women and children and tried to talk iraqi officials into delaying making a decision about troop withdrawals until after the election because congress needed to be in on the decisions made. this after spending l8 mos. recommending immediate withdrawal of all troops, leaving the iraqi people at the mercy of terrorists. he either didn’t know or care about what happened to the population of south vietnam when we withdrew from there. he’s a great orator, but he can’t order breakfast without a teleprompter, and then he changes his order before it can get delivered. yeah, right, i’m not going to vote for him because he’s black.
      personally, i think if we can’t have mccain/palin, a condoleeza rice/palin ticket would be a winner.

      Its not our poll and its not our goal to show that Democrats are racist. We are the messenger, read the poll and its purpose yourself … you may learn something.

    18. Scared Monkeys on September 21st, 2008 7:53 am

      #7 LV,

      If you are going to take that approach then to be consistent and not disingenuous …


      If you are going to use the experience talking point, then one best place it upon The Chosen One, himself.

      Talk about ZERO experience. And none in foreign policy. Oh, That’s right … he made a trip to Iraq therefore he is an expert.


    19. dennisintn on September 21st, 2008 8:13 am

      obama’s surrogates say that the repubs. are using “code words” in their speeches like “working class” and “blue collar workers”, and “small town workers”, and that’s who the repubs. are working and speaking for. why would the dems think those terms excluded minorities? sounds like a racist attitude on the part of dems to me.

    20. Scared Monkeys on September 21st, 2008 8:40 am

      It is sad that the polls and certain MSM outlets would propegate race baiting and reasons why people will not vote for Obama.

      I did not vote for Clinton, Gore or Kerry and Obama is just one in a long line of too liberal for America Democrats in that list.

    21. Kay Zee Ess on September 21st, 2008 8:44 am

    22. Silky on September 21st, 2008 9:19 am

      I am not a racist; but, I could become one if Obama gets in office and exercizes his reparation beliefs.

    23. chris on September 21st, 2008 11:35 am

      #7 LouiseVargas, should Obama be elected, can’t you just picture him running to Michelle asking: What do you think I should do” each time a problem arises?

    24. on September 21st, 2008 2:19 pm

      19 dennisintn: so right. Just who are the working class, blue collar workers and small town workers? Is Obama trying to tell us that these descriptions don’t apply to black people? Or is it that they don’t apply to the black people voting for him?

      Well he might have a point there: those words don’t apply to Hollyweird but then most of them aren’t black either.

    25. Maggie on September 21st, 2008 2:37 pm

      Like the above.. I too.. wonder why someone is more worried about a female VP , trying to say she has no experience..When the lead guy has none at all.. Sarah Palin is looking better and better to me.. If having experience means anything..look at Washington DC right.. at all the ones with experience and where it has got us. What kind of experience does Obama have? I haven’t seen that answered yet.. For a party that supports women, I have seen them treat women the worst.

    26. david r on September 21st, 2008 7:52 pm

      The Dems are supreme hypocrites. If you don’t vote for Obama they say, you must be a racist, because he is clearly the next Kennedy. Well, Kennedy had been in Washington for 16 years when he ran for President. Obama has been in Washinton for 4 years. All he has ever done is make nice speeches. So now the Dems are obsessing about Palin’s inexperience. They dismiss McCain, who is at the head of the ticket, saying he is too old and will probably die before he would complete his term. They shafted Hillary twice. They have betrayed the egalitarian ideals that once made the party great. Now you are a racist if you don’t vote their way, like the OJ jury is doing. They aren’t racists, right?

    27. SUPER DAVE on September 22nd, 2008 6:25 am

      go ahead and label me a racist now !! just say NO to barry o !!

    31. Howard on September 23rd, 2008 1:19 pm

      If Obama can get Americans to base the election on racism,
      then it will take their attention off the fact that he has no experience,
      no credentials, and no issues.

    32. BUN on September 23rd, 2008 3:45 pm

      I wasn’t a racist when this election began..even considered Obama for Pres. I have seen so many HATEFUL black folks on TV and heard from so many on this and other blogs who are bigtime racists but doesn’t seem to count if you are black which I find unequal, disgusting and mean. I reflect on most all other countries where a black is currently the leader (check that out in your leisure)so I’m currently rethinking my position.

    33. gaetano on September 25th, 2008 4:03 am

      When it comes to mr. and Mrs.O-BOMB-US,who are the ones that put racisiam into this election,who shouldn`t be racist? They don`t know it yet but because of their racist bull sh–,O-BOMB-US WILL not only lose the election,he will lose by more votes then ever in the history of elections.And because of his ignorant racist wife`s comments,they have brought the race issue back into the 50`s.I am starting to feel sorry for the black people for now they will have to start over again.I also believe that even the clittons WILL VOTE FOR mCCAIN. To finnish,I would like to state, that for those of you that vote for a new president by what the last president did or didn`t do,you must be a complete idiot or just insane.GOOD LUCK (YOU`LL NEED IT)
