Are blacks who speak out against Obama racist too?

By Dave Weinbaum



http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | "I have a dream that my four little children will live in a nation where they won't be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Martin Luther King

The dueling demonstrations between a bitter Al Sharpton and a subdued Glenn Beck were a telling commentary on the mood of the country. One called America great and opened up the path to G-d as a way of "Restoring Honor." The other staked out racial turf, implying Beck and his half million attendees were interlopers. To me it was the US Open of non-political politics VS. the old race card closed territory laid out by MLK's political survivors.

Ah, but there are large gashes in the racial bias biz. Too many blacks on BOTH sides of the aisle are critical of our first black president. They cannot be ignored. Neither do the Uncle Tom, House Negro labels hold water. After all, this isn't the continuation of the Bush administration, despite the protestations of Dear Leader. Condi Rice is long retired. These blacks are too credible to be tagged like mere Tea Partiers, Republicans and, dare I say, Fox News.

Below are comments that would get the sharp rebuke of racism if from the paler amongst us. Racist? You decide:

Juan Williams: NPR and Fox News commentator: "Obama hasn't conveyed that he really cares about the oil spill."

Bill Cosby: "I was shocked to hear the President make this kind of statement." ( "Stupid" white police comment aimed at Cambridge officers over their confrontation with an abusive Dr. Louis Gates, Hahvad Professor).

Dr. Alveda King: MLK's niece and one of yesterday's featured speakers at the "Restoring Honor" event, said "…Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood, and supported whole-heartedly by President Obama)…wanted to eliminate blacks. Abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of. Obama's election gives a face to abortion."

Dr. Cornel West: Activist and another Hahvad Professor "…(Obama) talked to me like I was a Cub Scout and he was a Pack Master …I don't like to be demeaned and humiliated …it was a very ugly kind of moment…Does he (Obama) have a double standard for black critics as opposed to white critics?"

Spike Lee: "Eleven Americans lost their lives (in the BP well explosion) and it took seven weeks (for Obama) to invite their families to the White House. If this oil spill would have reached the Hamptons , Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod , that f!@#$%r would have been fixed."

Jesse Jackson: "(Obama is) talking down to black people. I want to cut his nuts off."

All except for Dr. King are some of the President's most ardent supporters. What seems to be most disconcerting of the bro in office is his condescension and arrogance…toward blacks. When is anyone going to get a clue that Obama is for unions, not minorities?

They must think we're one foot short of a yard sale

Tea Partiers are under constant attack of racism, not because they oppose the Obama Administration's Marxist policies and incompetence, but because they are gaining political momentum and must be destroyed.

The method is that of the big lie, repeated often enough for bottom feeders to believe and to put protesters on defense.

Dems executed this bile on their provocative march through a crowd of protesters about Obamacare. Black Congressman Lewis said that he was called the "N" word 15 times and black Congressman Emanuel Cleaver claimed he was spat upon.

Five months after Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 to the coffers of the UNCF for any audio or video proof of this incident no such evidence was offered, even though there were hundreds of cameras aimed at the event. Both Lewis and Cleaver have mysteriously evaporated into the hot summer like dew on morning grass, when asked to repeat their allegations.

For the record, the NAACP, pushed by the Obama Administration and the MSM, based accusations of racism on these claims and continue to this day to cling to their legitimacy. Yet they fail to mention the New Black Panther's intimidating voters at a polling place in 2008 or that Panther shout-out in the Philly streets for blacks to rid themselves of their cracker whores and kill white babies.

Conservative blacks are still vilified as Uncle Toms and House Negroes. People like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Dr. Thomas Sowell, Dr. Armstrong Williams, Col. Allen West and a growing number of blacks famous and not are rising up to complain about our president.

I guess black and white may find unity in the despicable treatment by an administration so thin-skinned and anti-American that soon we'll all be labeled racists.

Glenn Beck's focus on the Almighty was timely.

Only G-d can save us if Obama and the Dems are voted back into control.
