AJC Columnist Cynthia Tucker Says 45% to 65% of Town Hall Opposing to Obamacare are Racists … Was Hillary Clinton Black Too?
The Audacity of the Race Card …
According to Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, 45%–65% of those who attend town hall meetings in opposition to Obamacare are racists. That’s correct, the opposition to Obama’s health care is not based on the fact the policy is a joke, i is because individuals are racist. She made these comments on MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Hard Ball.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Put 100 of these people in a room. Strap them into gurneys. Inject them with sodium pentathol. How many of them would say “I don’t like the idea of having a black president”? What percentage?
CYNTHIA TUCKER: Oh, I’m just guessing. This is just off the cuff. I think 45 to 65% of the people who appear at these groups are people who will never be comfortable with the idea of a black president.
Democrats and Liberal just don’t get it. These people actually believe Barack Obama is greater than the institution of the Presidency, Government, Democracy and “We the People.” To quote The Godfather, “it’s not personal, it’s business.” We the People cannot stand Obama’s policies on government run healthcare.
So if you show initiative and passion, get off your coach and stop watching reality TV, become politically engaged, question a policy the costs over $1 trillion and express your Constitutional right to free speech … You are a racist!
Did I miss something when Hillary Healthcare failed, was Hillary Clinton black as well?
Protesters against Obamacare have been slandered by all by Democratic Congressmembers and called angry mobs”, “paid agitators” and recently, “brownshirts” and “unAmerican.” Barack Obama won the Presidency with a 53% to 46% vote. Presently, polls show that 50% of Americans think that he he doing a bad job with healthcare. Thus, the very people who voted for Obama are questioning his healthcare policies, are they racist too?
Newsbusters has the VIDEO.
A learning lesson for all you naive individuals who thought that electing a black man President of the United States would end racism. Let me rephrase, end those who have made a cottage industry out of using the race card. Who is sick and tired of the endless and inappropriate use of the race card? Hell, Obama interjected himself in the Gates-Crowley Cambridge, MA arrest and used it himself when he said that the police acted stupidly without ever knowing the facts. Obama automatically assumed that the police had to have acted the way they did and racially profiled because Harvard professor Gates was a black man.
Out of curiously was former First Lady Hillary Clinton black? I know that Bill Clinton used to be referred to as the “first black President”, but did that make Hillary black by marriage? A newsflash to the uninformed, the United States already went through a thing called “Hillary Health care” that failed miserably under former President Bill Clinton.
The opposition has nothing to do with the individual, it has to do with the policy. But in Democrats and Obama’s mind, this has always been about the individual being more important that the country. This is not about “The One” or his color. Hillary Clinton was a pastey, white female who’s plan of socialized medicine was soundly defeated. Socialized health care could have been brought to the forefront by a person who was white, brown, pink, black, purple or yellow … it would fail with “We the People” because Americans do not want a government run health care plan.
According to recent Rasmussen polls, 54%-34% favor a middle class tax cut over new health care spending. In another recent USA/Gallup poll, 50%-44% disapproved of Obama’s handling of health care.

When all else fails pull the “race card”. In St. Louis a Black man was attacked by SEIU, who is the racist? Non whites who are against Deathcare, are they racist? What a bunch of tools in the MSM.
Looks who is talking the biggest Black Racist of them all, Cynthia Tucker. What a hypocrit. Quite frankly the Obama Plan STINKS just like the CAP and TRADE idea and the CASH for CLUNKERS.
If only the appropriate vetting had taken place,
perhaps someone with the valuable qualities of Alan Keys,
Larry Elders, JC Watts, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas,
Ken Blackwell, Michael Steele, Walter Williams, LaShawn Barber,
Condaleeza Rice, or Lynn Swann could have been
offered to the Voters. Choosing between two committed
‘Progressives’ on one hand and a not-solid Conservative
on the other has panned out lacking. The moral of the
situation is: Choosing by Color does not trump Choosing
Let’s boycott all these crap newspapers and mainstream media channels. I am so tired of only part of the story being told. Let’s stand up against it. BOYCOTT NOW!
Cynthia Tucker is a racist!
Bob Schiefer(misp?) gets it.. This is from Face the Nation.. 1:52 long. video. excellent..
“Race Card”? I think this card has been played so many times it’s worn out completely.
However, it’s the “excuse vehicle” on which blacks ride through life. Pitiful.
We are the masters of our own destiny. I’d hate to know I “earned” success by making excuses.
Blacks are their own worst enemy. They have no coping skills for appropriately engaging life’s obstacles thus they yell racism.
Obama just appointed two muslims on the Dept of Homeland Security one being sworn in by Naplotano. I forget their names but read separate stories just today. Unreal, as a US Army Vet, I’m mindnumbed on this one.
Well, hell, was wondering when the RACE CARD would show its ugly head….Bad enough Michele O pulled it out before her hubby got in, the clock is ticking!
NO NO NO…let these idiots keep on talking…the more they call us racists and nazi or whatever cruel vile names they want to call us…the more America is waking up to the travesty that is the Pelosi/Obama administration.
Let them keep talking…they are turning more and more people off…
it’s the only excuse ther have had for 200 years to explain their bad behaviour.
Me? I could care less that OlbysMessiah is black, or even half black. It is not just the content of his character that I despise, it is also his Marxist politics.
This bum and his minions are systematically trying to destroy this great nation, and will bankrupt it if left unchecked. From their perspective, a bankrupt US is a good thing. The result would be trickle down poverty for all but the ruling class, and more powwer and control for themselves.
There are signs that the average citizen is waking up to these realities, and for their exercise of 1st amendment rights, they are branded by the Democrap/Mainstream Media Coalition as racists, nazis, and unAmerican, among other things.
As the title of Mark Levin’s brilliant book suggests: this is a battle between Liberty and Tyranny. At stake is the very survival of our country as we know it.
Soldier on, comrades!!! And protest, question, protest!
I think Cynthia Tucker is correct. I wonder how many of Scared Monkey posters frequent Town Hall meetings. My guess is a majority.
I think Jack Hammer is a leech of society, sucking the life out of hardworking, non-racist Americans who are GENUINELY horrified over this spending spree that is going to leave our children broke and our parents on Obama Dr. Death’s Door. See little jack, we know you are too vile to have children and you were probably raised by a pack of wolves which is why you don’t care…..
This isn’t about race, ONLY to little tiny vile liberals like yourself. It is about what is RIGHT and what is WRONG.
Cynthia Tucker looks like she had a her face run over by a steam roller. She’s racist!
And jack…if you think we are racist who post on this board then get lost you sorry sad excuse for male DNA!
I think Jack Hammer don’t know Jack Shit.
jack is just jealous that he picked the real loser.
let the soul sista talk she don be havin but one excuse. it cause we be black. it just like my brotha jack. we be axing fo some mo handouts but
the white man jus be holin us down. weze don kno nuttin bout no work or payin no tax cause da republican whiteys be doin all dat fo us.
There is nothing about race its about paying my tax dollars to people who refuse to work and prefer to sit around making babies, collecting welfare and gang banging. GET A JOB. News report of many like it. a black man, in the USA, 29 years old and has 21 kids with 11 different women. 4 in one year alone and he works part time at a fast food joint. Whats wrong with this making babies when you can not afford it. Check the stats for what race has the highest single parrent rate. 70%+
Good Grief! Cynthia Tucker is the biggest racist of all!!! She is SUPPOSEDLY an educated woman…and IF that’s correct, she (and others just like her) need to learn that opposition to bad plans, having an opinion, and not agreeing with Dumbama and his lackeys is NOT..repeat NOT racism!!!!!!!!!!!
@16: what was the GOP idea for less child pregnancy…abstinence?
what a wonderfull realistic idea.
a study showed that of all the GOP girls who enrolled were much more likely to involve in oral and anal sex
and the numbers also clearly state that it isn’t working.
#18…STFU….link the GD STUDY you piece of crap liar….
Oh we can just tell the girls in the inner cities to keep making baby after baby after baby that we taxpayers pay for…baby after baby after baby….
Your BS study is full of crap….
I wonder how one can tell who is and who isn’t a GOP girl? You are total f’in idiot!
#18 Sex education would help. Learn to use birth control. Stop being irresponsible. Stop expecting someone else to pay for your mistakes. Stop expecting someone else to do all the work while you reap the benefits. There are entirely to many lazy, worthless individuals in this country. Drugs, sex & gangs is all they know. Instead off crying about how hard life is, do something about it. Stop playing the race card everyone is sick of it. They use that as a crutch instead of actually doing something constructive with their lives. These are the kind of people you have voting Democrat because they like the government handouts. The like their welfare checks & their food stamps. The more babies they have, the more money they get and it’s and endless cycle when their children then become pregnant with no husband, no job, no way of taking care of themselves or their children but hey that’s what the taxpayers are for right? NOT
So once again DOLF, you don’t know what the hell you are talking about.
And no I don’t think abortion is the answer either.
#18 Dolf…are you on our website spewing crap again…are you making this up as you go along? We need to have a little close order knuckle drill.
Sex education would help. Learn to use birth control. Stop being irresponsible. Stop expecting someone else to pay for your mistakes
I agree, this beats abstinence (does anybody know a teen who doesn’t want to have sex), to bad the Bush admin put all their money on the abstinence
Dolf..how I wish your mother had used birth control!!!
ah…BUN…just showed his/her class
Hi Dolf…I see I finally got your attention…good to see you here on the blog!!
BUN, you only had to ask.
and thanks for the welcome
Dolf I had been pestering you on each blog to see if you would notice me….I like this blog because we can scream and yell and still see other views.
