Once Again Barack Obama Uninformed … Turns Out that an Overwhelming Majority of Americans Do Not Want Redskin’s Name Changed, Including Native Americans
Just how uninformed is the smartest President ever?
Over the weekend President commented that if he was the owner of the Washington Redskins, he would consider changing the name. Obama’s exact words were that if the name Redskins offended “a sizable group of people” then the name should be changed. HUH? Maybe Obama should have done his home work before he mouthed off about something that he knows little about. But then again, he has a history of making divisive comments and acting “stupidly”. As it turns out, a sizable amount of people are for the Redskins name to stay as it is. An AP poll from April 2013 shows that 79% of Americans believe that the Redskins should keep their name as is. How is that for wide-spread support Mr. President?
One would think that there are greater priorities as President than the name of a privately owned professional sports team
But a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that nationally, “Redskins” still enjoys widespread support. Nearly four in five Americans don’t think the team should change its name, the survey found. Only 11 percent think it should be changed, while 8 percent weren’t sure and 2 percent didn’t answer.
Although 79 percent favor keeping the name, that does represent a 10 percentage point drop from the last national poll on the subject, conducted in 1992 by The Washington Post and ABC News just before the team won its most recent Super Bowl. Then, 89 percent said the name should not be changed, and 7 percent said it should.
The AP-GfK poll was conducted from April 11-15 and included interviews with 1,004 adults on both land lines and cell phones. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
Attorney Lanny Davis responded for the Washington Redskins in an effort to inform Obama.
Hours after President Barack Obama said he would “think about changing” the Redskins team name because it offends “a sizable group of people,” the organization responded in a statement through attorney Lanny Davis.
“As a supporter of President Obama, I am sure the President is not aware that in the highly respected independent Annenberg Institute poll (taken in 2004) with a national sample of Native Americans, 9 out of 10 Native Americans said they were not bothered by the name the ‘Washington Redskins.’” Davis said. “The President made these comments to the Associated Press, but he was apparently unaware that an April 2013 AP poll showed that 8 out of 10 of all Americans in a national sample don’t think the Washington Redskins’ name should be changed.
From the Divider in Chief: Barack Obama Says If He Owned the Washington Redskins He Would Think About Changing the Name
PRIORITIES from the Community Agitator …
With a US economy on the skids, record number of Americans on food stamps, a government shut down, a pending debt limit default and a national debt about to go over $17 trillion … President Barack Obama returns to his divisive ways and thinks discussing the name of the NFL Washington Redskins is some national, important issue. Barack Obama told the AP that is he was the owner of the Washington Redskins, he would think about changing their name. For one sir, you are not their owner so basically your opinion means nothing. You would think that Obama would be more concerned with not barricading WWII memorials and preventing ‘Our Greatest Generation’ heroes from visiting a memorial that honors them. But no, Obama goes back to discussing racism instead.
Since Chief Shitting Bull has already been taken, maybe we can refer to Obama as Chief Who Speaks With Forked Teleprompter
President Barack Obama says he would “think about changing” the Washington Redskins’ name if he owned the football team as he waded into the controversy involving a word many consider offensive to Native Americans.
Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names such as the Redskins offend “a sizable group of people.” He said that while fans get attached to the names, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.
“I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things,” he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday at the White House.
An avid sports fan who roots for his hometown Chicago Bears, Obama said he doesn’t think Washington football fans are purposely trying to offend American Indians. “I don’t want to detract from the wonderful Redskins fans that are here. They love their team and rightly so,” he said.
Ben Jealous, he head of the NAACP steps down citing family reasons. As reported at USA Today, the civil rights leader said he’s satisfied that he will leave an organization in much better condition than it was when he took over five years ago. Really, how so? If anything the NAACP has become more polarized and partisan in the past 5 years. Interestingly enough his reign of the NAACP has mirrored Barack Obama’s election as president. I would ask both, how is that black unemployment rate doing these days, especially black teens? Sorry, but it would appear the NAACP has become more political than carrying to truly help black America. As Jealous and the NAACP were so quick to demonstrate against the George Zimmerman “not guilty” verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin and call for civil rights hate crime charges, they have been all but non-existent to address the “killing fields” of Chicago and the black on black violence.
It is amazing that he focuses on Trayvon Martin and the 700 black teens were killed in Chicago.
The man who has become the face of the NAACP — from marches protesting the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin to vigils for death row inmate Troy Davis in Georgia — is resigning effective Dec. 31.
In an interview with USA TODAY, Benjamin Todd Jealous said the constant travel as president and CEO of the nation’s largest civil rights organization has kept him away too much from his wife, civil rights lawyer Lia Epperson, and children, daughter Morgan, 7, and Jack, 13 months. He said he plans to make a formal announcement to his staff Monday morning.
“Leadership knows when to step up and when to step down,” Jealous said. “This day I can say with pride that I’m prepared to step down and make room for the next person who will lead this organization to its next chapter.”
MSM & LEFT Continue to Trivialize Civil Rights and Martin Luther King Jr’s Message … Colin Powell Criticizes the George Zimmerman Murder Trial Verdict as “Questionable” in Death of Trayvon Martin
Really, would Martin Luther King Jr. have used the Trayvon Martin case as an example in the ‘I have a Dream’ speech? This is where today’s Civil Rights leaders fail miserably and the MSM simply spews their hateful propaganda. How can they possibly trivialize King’s “Dream” with Trayvon Martin … “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” It’s about “character” … remember that.
On CBS ‘Face the Nation,’ Colin Powell was asked about the implications and fall out of the Trayvon Martin case. Colin Powell stated, “It will be seen as a questionable judgement on the part of the judicial system down there, But I don’t know if it will have staying power.” Isn’t it some thing that when he does not agree with a verdict, it is questionable. Many would say what you have done in your past is questionable as well Colin. No staying power, eh Mr. Powell? The liberal MSM and race hustlers are going to see that it does have staying power as they exploit the events between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin for their own purposes and attempt to pursue their agenda that had nothing to do with the case.
Any one who has any understanding of history, any knowledge of the Civil Rights movement knows that it is a joke to interject Trayvon Martin into the lexicon of civil rights in the United States. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. told us all in was about the “content of one’s charter” … not about the content of your political ideology.
VIDEO – CBS ‘Face the Nation’ - at the 5:30 point of video Colin Powell is asked about Trayvon Martin verdict
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the jury verdict that freed the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin was “questionable.” But he isn’t sure it will have staying power in the public consciousness.
Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, Powell said cases like Martin’s “blaze across the midnight sky” and are forgotten.
As stated at CNN, Powell said Sunday he’d like Obama to “be more passionate about race questions.” Huh? Maybe the question should have been that should Obama be more consistent when it came to race crimes and not just come out and say, “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon” and then be silent when there is black on white crime and even more noticeably, black on black crime like the killing fields in Chicago. More passionate about race questions? How about he care about the education and unemployment rates of blacks in America? More passionate about race questions? How about this president not pit blacks vs. whites? I would dare say that Martin Luther King Jr. would have an issue with this “Divider” in Chief.
Don’t Mess with Texas … Obama Rodeo Clown Fired & Banned in Missouri is a Special Guest Star at the Mesquie Rodeo
Don’t mess with Texas … the Mesquie rodeo is bringing in the Obama rodeo clown along with three other presidential rodeo clowns. The Obama clown is a special guest star as the Mesquie Rodeo puts on the grand finale to its 2013 season with non-stop action you will only find in the aptly named ‘Rodeo Capital of Texas’.
To those who have no clue, have never watched a rodeo or have ever been to one, having presidential clowns at them is a tradition. This is nothing special targeting Barack Obama. No one squawked when there was a GWB clown. But the thin-skinned, always at the ready to cry racism LEFT always act like children in their reaction to anything that could be mean to Obama. How dare they. Too bad they did not also have the same feelings when it came to doing something that was in poor taste against Jesus. But in that case it is called “art” and “freedom of speech”.
Mesquite Arena General Manager Steve Gander reportedly said presidential rodeo clowns have been a long standing tradition at rodeos and that Obama will be joined at the event by three other presidents this weekend.
“Presidential and celebrity clowns and dummies have been in rodeo and other sports and entertainment events since before Richard Nixon,” Gander reportedly wrote.
“We are just being current and exercising our freedom of speech,” he added, assuring it will be “good clean family entertainment” and that the rodeo clowns will be “respectful.”
The ridiculous over-reaction in Missouri got the Obama rodeo clown banned for life from the State fair. How typical, Obama once again causing people to lose jobs and the LEFT causing nothing but problems and sticking their nose in where it does not belong. However, how is it that the NAACP wanted the Obama rodeo clown brought up on hate crimes and destroyed , yet Ayo Kimathi, an employee at the DHS can post anti-white, race war … In Order for Black people to Survive the 21st Century, We are Going to Have to Kill a lot of Whites” … and still retain his job? Sorry, suspended with pay is still retaining one’s job.
Sybrina Fulton, Mother of Trayvon Martin, Says Stop and Frisk Is Racial-Profiling … The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin’s Death Continues
NYC … soon to be the new Chicago.
Are you kidding me, first Trayvon’s mother is against stand your ground laws and now stop and frisk? Neither of which had anything to do with her son’s death. What is the point of her honoring her son’s death other than calling everything racist?
Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, goes on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ and states stop and frisk is racial profiling. Even though ‘stop and frisk’ laws have made NYC a safer place and actually prevented crime, these misguided individuals just want to call everything racially profiling. Flanked by NAACP’s Ben Jealous and Fulton’s attorney Benjamin Crump, this poor woman does not even realize she and the memory of her dead son are being exploited by race-baiters. How sad, or worse … she does. Sorry, but to end a police progam that actually works and actually saves the lives of individuals, including blacks, is just irresponsible. These race baiters have been looking for their “racial profile” campaign and they have found it by exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin. I can empathize with Sabrina Fulton’s loss, no parent should ever have to bury their child. But that certainly does not give you the right to back ignorant and foolish positions without question or criticism. Of course any one who disagrees will be branded a racist.
The wider point, Sabrina Fulton, i welcome you to the program. Just your reaction as a mother who’s lost her son so tragically and as now someone who’s trying to create something positive out of that searing loss by talking about stand your ground laws. You’ve heard the commissioner of new york say, look, what happened to Trayvon Martin, even though it was referenced in the judge’s ruling, is quite different. that was civilian on civilian. This is about civilians interacting with the police department. do you see that distinction or not?
I think it’s all about laws, and I think you have to give not only civilians, but you have to give the police officers the right direction. You can’t give people the authority, police officers the right to stop somebody because of the color of their skin.
Now for the sane side of the discussion from New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly who is adamantly is against the recent court ruling that ‘stop and frisk’ is Unconstitutional. This very law actually protect blacks in inner cities, but some how that is irrelevant. Once the law is banned and murders are on the rise of blacks in NYC, the same people will be complaining that the police are doing nothing.
No, absolutely, we are sensitive to this. nobody wants to be stopped. at the very least, you’re giving up your time. But we need some balance here. the stark reality is that violence is happening disproportionately in minority communities, and that, unfortunately, is in big cities throughout America. We have record low numbers of murders in New York City, record low numbers of shootings. We’re doing something right to save lives. last year, as i said, we had a record low in murders. This year we’re running 30% below that. let me give you another figure. In the last 11 years, 11 full years of the Bloomberg administration, there were 7,363 fewer murders in New York City than there were in the preceding 11 years. Now, if history is any guide, those lives saved are largely the lives of young men of color. so, we’re doing something.
Let me go back to those numbers that you referenced and put it up on the screen for our audience and go through some of those numbers and where some of the criticism is. 4.4 million stops. 6% arrests. 6% summons. 88% no further law enforcement action. And then look at who is getting targeted. 52% black, 31% Hispanic, 10% white. I first want to focus on that 88% number of people not doing anything wrong. Does that not say to you as the commissioner of the police, we’re doing too much of this?
No. it doesn’t mean that people are not doing anything wrong. If you look at the statute, it says reasonable suspicion that individuals may be about to commit, are committing or have committed a crime. One of the classic examples that we use is somebody going down the street trying door handles, or a group of young men that the bodega owner fears going to strong arm rob them when they leave their store. so, there’s a preventive aspect to this. and people say innocent. that’s not the appropriate word. what we use here.
Wait until NYC looks like Chicago with the ridiculous murder rates … Maybe Trayvon’s mom will be happy then?
Liberal Media, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Obama Avoid the story of Three Black Teens Kick, Beat and Stomp White Kid on Florida Scool Bus Because He Would Not Buy Their Drugs
Hey Barack Obama, if you had a son, would these three teens look like you too? How about the white kid who had his rights violated and was stomped on?
So three black teen thugs beat the tar out of a white kid on a Florida public school bus and low and behold the liberal MSM, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, liberals, and President Barack Obama are suddenly silent. The boy in the video below suffered two black eyes, bruising and a broken hand. Where is the outrage of this racial beat down? The dispute was supposedly over the fact that the 13 year old boy had gone to school officials after he had been confronted earlier with the three thugs attempting too sell him marijuana. Just curious, is this the only individual who had refused to buy from them? Or was this the only white one? Why do we see no other videos of any other beatings by this group of thugs?
The dispute began on July 9 when one of the three boys tried to sell the younger boy marijuana while the two were in a bathroom at their drop out prevention school, prompting the younger teen to notify school officials, according to WFLA.com.
Later that day, Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight and Lloyd Khemradj were on the bus when they confronted their peer about the incident and began beating him while the school bus driver 64-year-old John Moody began to panic and call for help.
The three teens were arrested and the liberal media was silent.
Where is the “no justice, no peace crowd”? Could you just imagine if the rolls were revered and three white kids kicked the snot out of a younger black teen like in the video above? Do you think that Jackson, Sharpton or Obama would care that it was over a refused drug sale and retaliation? Where are the folks clambering for Justice for Trayvon? Hardly. The focus would only be on the color of the skin of the victim and attackers. The police and state prosecutors stated that race was not a factor. Really? Didn’t the Sanford, FL police and prosecutors say the same with George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin at the outset?
Just curious, where is Barack Obama interjecting himself in this one? Or is ok to beat up a white kid, give him two black eyes, bruising and a broken hand for saying no to drugs? But I guess because Obama admitted to doing drugs as a kid this would be deemed al right. This is what we get from a so-called president who does nothing but divide us and split America in two. Where is the outrage that a kid cannot ride a bus without having three drug selling thugs kick the crap out of him? Who cares whether the victim is white, black or purple … there is no way this was the first time that there three thugs acted to terrorize individuals in this school.
The original story from WFLA-TV News Channel 8:
Gulfport police recently released surveillance video from a school bus that shows the bus driver’s perspective of a beating earlier this month.
In the video from July 9th, the victim is sitting in the second seat of the Pinellas school bus with his head down. The violence starts as soon as he stands-up to get off the bus.
The bus driver, John Moody can be heard yelling for somebody to try to stop them and calls dispatch for help, “I got a fight. I need help in a hurry, I got a fight I need help in a hurry.”
The punches and kicks continue, and the victim falls between the seats. At one point you can hear his screams on the video. The bus driver yells at the attackers, “leave that boy alone,” but doesn’t try to intervene physically.
Ted Nugent Says, ‘Trayvon Got Justice,’ as Anti-American Libs Try to Stop Free Speech … Calls Petitioners “Idiots” and “Subhuman Numbnuts” & Calls Out Barack Obama and Eric Holder
Whether you love him or hate him, Ted Nugent, the Motor City Madman rocker is allowed his “free speech” as afforded by the United States Constitution.
During an interview with Maine radio station WGAN, Nugent defended his recent comments regarding Trayvon Martin, blacks and crime and those that think that he should not play rock and roll in Connecticut were “idiots”. Those that have an issue with the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution have started a petition to prevent Nugent from performing at Toad’s Place in New Haven, CT. Really folks, this is how you direct your energies? Nugent called a group of petitioners who want his August gig at the nightclub Toad’s Place in New Haven canceled “subhuman numbnuts.” I guess it is safe to say that none of the “numbnuts” will be attending his concert. These same “idiots” are the ones who are claiming that “Justice for Trayvon” and wanting to get Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ to file a Civil Rights case against George Zimmerman. Oh the irony, as at the same time the collective “idiots” are trying to take away Ted Nugent’s freedom of speech. What a shock that there is a liberal double standard.
Ted Nugent stated that “Trayvon Martin got justice”. Personally, I think this is a poor choice of words because of how individuals define justice. What Trayvon Martin got was his day in court. Initially that is what Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, Martin’s parents and the liberal MSM wanted when they made this story a race issue and forced Florida to try the death of Trayvon after prosecutors in Sanford. FL had decided not to. But that is not what they really wanted, they wanted their pound of flesh from George Zimmerman. They were only after a guilty verdict no matter what the evidence showed. They could not accept a jury’s “not guilty” verdict in the case and now are seeking other avenues of going after Zimmerman. As if this case has not been exploited enough.
Ted Nugent expresses his views as only the ‘Motor City Madman’ can …
When asked about the “idiots” in Connecticut who think he “shouldn’t play rock and roll,” Nugent told the conservative host: “You and I stand on the line of reason” and must not be silenced.
“People who hate Ted Nugent hate freedom,” he said, and promised to continue to speak what he sees as the truth.
Nugent also had some choice things to say about liberals, racial activists and Trayvon Martin during the interview.
Defending his previous comments about blacks and crime, Nugent insisted the statistics bear him out.
Of the Trayvon Martin case, Nugent said, “Trayvon got justice.” He went on to say that Martin was a “gangsta wannabe” who had a “bloodthirst,” as evidenced by the fact that he was supposedly eager to “get into fights with people.” He said Martin showed racism in calling George Zimmerman a “cracka.”
Ted Nugent went on to say …
Nugent said Zimmerman got only a “sliver of justice.” Although Zimmerman was found not guilty, powerful people from President Barack Obama to Attorney General Eric Holder have targeted him, as have “Holder’s best friends,” the New Black Panthers. Nugent implied the president and Holder are trying to subvert the legitimate verdict in the case.
“It pains me deeply” to have to acknowledge that the president and some others in the administration are “just bad people,” Nugent said. He said he had hoped to be able to speak better of the country’s top officials.
After 25 Years It’s Pay Up time for Tawana Brawley, the 1987 Rape Hoaxer Finally Pays the Piper for Slander … Al Sharpton Still Race-Baiting & Going Strong
FLASH FORWARD 25 YEARS AND AL SHARPTON IS GOING THE SAME THING HE DID WITH TAWANA BRAWLEY, FANNING THE FLAMES …
Twenty five years after falsely accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying the piper for her lies. Brawley owes Pagones $431,000 in damages for her slander and is now forced to pay Pagones $627 each month, possibly for the rest of her life. A Virginia court ordered Brawley to pay this money after she had been found hiding from her lies and her past living under the assumed name of Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez in Hopewell, VA. You can run, but you cannot hide. However, isn’t it something that Sharpton never had to hide … he made a living off of this sordid, terrible incident.
Twenty-five years after accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying for her lies.
Last week, 10 checks totaling $3,764.61 were delivered to ex-prosecutor Steven Pagones — the first payments Brawley has made since a court determined in 1998 that she defamed him with her vicious hoax.
A Virginia court this year ordered the money garnisheed from six months of Brawley’s wages as a nurse there.
She still owes Pagones $431,000 in damages. And she remains defiantly unapologetic.
“It’s a long time coming,” said Pagones, 52, who to this day is more interested in extracting a confession from Brawley than cash.
Isn’t it something though that a race-baitor like Al Sharpton never really had to pay a price for his involvement in this rotten and cruel hoax perpetrated on Pagones? Brawley’s advisers in the infamous race-baiting case, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and attorneys C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox, have already paid, or are paying, their defamation debt. However, they never really faced real justice for their reprehensible actions. As Weasel Zippers opines, “Well, you [Al Sharpton] never had to hide, someone else pays your court judgment, you continue to race-bait and you get a job on MSNBC. Take a good look at the NY Post story as to what Al Sharpton, Maddox and Mason did and was allowed to get away with it. They exploited the false rape story of a 15 year old girl to help fan the flames of racism. Flash-forward to present day and Sharpton is once again fanning the flames as he leaches on to the death of 17 year old black teen Trayvon Martin and exploits it for his personal gain. Are you sensing a pattern? Why is this allowed to happen? Because no one calls Sharpton for what he truly is. Well, maybe not no one. During a talking point on ‘The Factor’ Bill O’Reilly ripped the race-hustler and profiteer Sharpton for what he really was and pointed out the real problems that face the black community.
She was only 15 when she claimed she was the victim of a crime whose shocking brutality sparked a national outrage and stoked racial tensions.
The two-decade-long saga that nearly ruined Pagones’ life and career began on Nov. 28, 1987, when Brawley was found in a trash bag, with the words “n—-r” and “b—h” scrawled on her body in feces.
Firebrands Maddox and Mason and a relatively unknown Sharpton jumped into the fray. Within weeks, a suspect emerged — Fishkill Police Officer Harry Crist Jr., who had been found dead in his apartment three days after the Brawley “attack.”
But Pagones, a Dutchess County prosecutor at the time, defended his dead friend Crist, offering an alibi for the cop — they were Christmas-shopping together on one of the days in question. And on the three other days of the “kidnapping,” Crist was on patrol, working at his other job at IBM, and installing insulation in an attic.
Brawley’s handlers then claimed — without proof — that Pagones was part of the white mob that kidnapped and raped the girl 33 times.
Tax Cheat Democrat Charlie Rangel Says Tea Party Bunch of “White Crackers” & Compares Republicans to al Qaeda Terrorists
SHAMEFUL … RANGEL PULLS THE RACE AND TERROR CARD … THE LIBERAL DOUBLE STANDARD CONTINUES.
Where is the outrage, where are the calls for an apology as Democrat Charles Rangel compares the Tea Party to a bunch of “white crackers” and compared the GOP to al Qaeda Terrorists?
So this is what it has come to in the United States? A tax cheat like New York Representative Charles Rangel is allowed to use a racial slur regarding the Tea Party, referring to them as a “white crackers” with no outrage or punishment, yet an athlete like the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles receiver Riley Cooper uses the “N” word and is publican enemy #1, ripped to shreds in the media and in social media and is forced to take sensitivity training? Rangel made matters even worse as he compared the Republican party to al Qaeda terrorist. Really? Is this what we allow our elected leaders to act like? Could Rangel be any more irresponsible or ignorant?
Is this what the Democrat party has become? Referring to those you disagree with as crackers or terrorists? Seriously. How does anyone get away with this? How does Rangel even have a job at this point? But this is what political discourse has become these days. If you are black, you get away with calling others a racists or call them crackers with no accountability. But foolishly and ignorantly use the “N” word and your career is over. Heck, George Zimmerman became a “white” Hispanic so that the race-baiters could go after him and make the death of Trayvon Martin a Civil Rights case, when it was not. It is a sad state of affairs and people like Rangel just make matters worse.
From Mediaite -
“White crackers, eh”? I guess we are supposed to be impressed that Rangel did not refer to the Tea Party as “creepy ass” crackers.
Ok, if no one else wants to say it, we will. Charles Rangel is nothing more than a racist. He appears to only talk in words of black and white. Sorry, wasn’t it Martin Luther King Jr. who profoundly stated, it is not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of one’s character?” As for Rangel, he has no charter. The tax cheat and ethically challenged Rangel was even too much for Barack Obama as he had said for Rangel to call it quits. But that did not happen. What would be considered worse, a power hungry, ethically challenged politician not having the common decency to resign, or the ignorant voters reelected the characterless individual?
From The Daily Beast:
House Republicans? Have done more damage to American competitiveness than al Qaeda ever could. “What is happening is sabotage. Terrorists couldn’t do a better job than the Republicans are doing.”
The Tea Party? Defeat them the same way segregation was beaten. “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused America to say enough is enough. ‘I don’t want to see it and I am not a part of it.’ What the hell! If you have to bomb little kids and send dogs out against human beings, give me a break.”
He sees in some of the reluctance to move forward on immigration reform a fear, one that white people have of non-whites.
“Every white son of a gun from Europe has found a way to get here, and these barriers I think have a lot to do with color and the awkwardness or the uncomfortableness that a lot of whites feel about people of color,” Rangel said.
Asked, though, why black congressmen, who have traditionally resisted liberalized immigration laws, are now supportive of them, Rangel rejected the premise. “You are not going to go back to Abe Lincoln now and that bullshit are you? Blacks were tied to Abe, who freed the slaves, and so we followed the Republicans”—and called on all segments of society, including the Democratic Party, including religious institutions, to do more to help the downtrodden.
Just curious, how come Rangel is not more concerned about black unemployment at record highs or black on black crime that is at epidemic levels? Instead, it’s more about the hate and division.
The Gateway Pundit provides Rangel and us a history lesson as to the Democrat party after Republican President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves following the Civil Way.
EXIT QUESTION … WHERE IS THE LEADERSHIP FROM BARACK OBAMA TO PUT MATTERS INTO PERSPECTIVE AND CALL FOR CALM AND CIVILITY?
UPDATE I: Hey Charlie, if you want to compare the Republican party to Al-Qaeda … Since when has a US Embassy or Consulate been closed due to a communication from the GOP? I didn’t think so you idiot!!!
