African Americans for Obama

“I voted for Obama because he’s black” —Samuel Jackson | Paul Joseph Watson writes on InfoWars:

Imagine if Ron Paul announced a national campaign called ‘Whites for Ron Paul’ — he’d be vilified as a racist. And yet Barack Obama has done the equivalent of precisely that with his launch of ‘African Americans for Obama’.

Not only is Obama playing the race card in an attempt to pressure black Americans into voting for him, he is also violating the separation between church and state. In the video promo for the campaign, Obama urges black people to pressure churches into supporting his administration by getting his message out via “the faith community”. He also calls on voters to become “congregation captains”….

“I thought race didn’t matter Mr. President?” asks Chad Hasty. “I don’t think MLK would be too pleased with you at all. African-Americans for Obama? Give me a break. Under this President, more blacks are unemployed. More blacks are on food stamps. If I had to bet though, Obama will still pull 93% of the black vote. Again, just a wild guess.” …

    The term “African American” itself is racist, wheres the outrage over that?

    • chinagreenelvis

      Hahaha

      Outrage gets tiring after a few decades.  That’s why I opt for cynicism.

      • Redacted

        Among other things.

       Well at least they have an “of color”. The rest of us poor schmucks apparently are colorless.

  • UselessJunk

    Can I start the “Unquestioning Fascists for Obama” club?  Whites *and* blacks welcome.

    • Eric_D_Read

      I think others already beat you to it. They just know that fascism works much better if you don’t call it fascism. 

      Kind of like how propaganda works better if you call it news, PR, or entertainment.

      Amend that to “Subservient Drones For (Insert D or R candidate here)” and I’d second that.

  • Hadrian999

    why not, presidential candidates are all smoke and mirrors anyway, they tell you what you want to hear, make promises nobody really expects them to keep, stab all their street level campaign people in the back and carry water for the highest bidder. any reason anyone votes for a president is completely meaningless.

    It’s definitely pandering, but I don’t really think it stands up as any sort of reverse racism. Being the first black president is something that defines Obama. Would anyone really complain about a Billionaires for Romney or Self-hating Closet Homosexuals for Santorum campaigns? As for ‘Whites for Ron Paul’, there’s really nothing differentiating about being a white candidate in the GOP, even if it were genuinely meant as some sort of white heritage pride rather than a call for white racist support.

    The GOP has been enjoying the ironic support of poor white people for decades so why shouldn’t Obama get his opportunity to enjoy the ironic support of African Americans?

    infowars is only one notch above stormfront anyways, and definitely of a lower intellectual grade than foxnews. it certainly doesn’t surprise me that an article as sophomoric and inerudite as this comes from that tier of cyberhell.

    • Eric_D_Read

      FoxNews > Infowars? Really!? 

      For all the faults of the Infowars crowd, and they certainly have plenty, at least they realize that the entire political class and media establishment is full of shit. Most Fox viewers really believe that O’Reilly and the Republicans are “looking out for them.”

      • Jin The Ninja

        i like how you chose the fox news bit of my post, but said nothing about the stormfront comment. obviously i’m not wrong about that.

        and most of the infowars crowd think Ron Paul is looking out for them. at the end of the day, all repubs look the same in dark.

        • Eric_D_Read

          Nah. I just figured that debating the Stormfront merits with you would be like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good I am at chess, you’ll just knock the pieces over, crap on the board, and strut around like you’re victorious. 

          So I didn’t bother.

          • Eric_D_Read

            “…debating the merits of the Stormfront comparison..” would probably be a more accurate way to phrase it before you accuse me of implying that the Stormfront site has merit.

          • Jin The Ninja

            i did not read that subtext into your comment, regardless of how i feel about your ideological positions.

          • Camron Wiltshire

            Damn Jin! Dis Nigga Pulled Your Card!

          • Jin The Ninja

            for someone whose value of himself (intellectually) is so high, you sure didn’t bring any of those grandmaster moves to the spike lee article- in fact, it was i, who thought i was being too aggressive (lupine) in context to your very jejune and inane positions (sheepish).

          • Eric_D_Read

            Of course you were being wolfish (lupine) in the Lee article. When your arguments boil down to “My position is right! You just don’t get it; probably because your a white privilege enjoying racist!” You have to be more aggressive when the foundation of your argument is built on mud.

            Since the entire debate started around my suggestion that McBride was playing the racism card with his headline for attention-seeking purposes, your visceral (a fancy way of saying gut) reaction to that suggestion relied on emotional appeal and sophistry rather than logic and honest debate, (possibly due to your thinly-veiled hatred for white people.)

            Bonus points for using the ‘Big Words” tactic from the Bill O’Reilly Playbook. It is surprisingly effective most of the time–just not this time.

            Check.

            (not to be continued till tomorrow though. It’s almost happy hour here and I’m parched. Until then… :P )

            Lupine & jejune were words of the day via webster’s like last year bro . Bacon, Owl ,Mustache…

          • Camron Wiltshire

            BURN!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Lakota

            ^WIN! lol. 

        • Shaniqua

           all repubs look the same in dark.

          So do “African-Americans for Obbama”

          • Jin The Ninja

            all you are doing is proving what i said is true.

    • Lakota

      You can say what you will about infowars, it doesn’t change the fact that Obama is pulling a RACE card. Its LOW. pulling on emotional strings of minorities that are fed this left right democrats are for blacks and repubs are for whites mess is craziness. MLK was REPUBLICAN. Most KKK were democrat. It just goes to show that the 2 party system is a farce. I mean i was mislead too. I voted for him. I thought we were really going to see some change. All his presidency did was show even a mulatto dude can screw us too.

  • Liam_McGonagle

    That showed remarkable restraint.  Took nearly 2 whole months of 2012 before someone raised the irrelevant race issue.

    Ironically it’s this bottom-feeding resort to racial invective that’s been keeping Obama’s political career alive.  Some dumb-*ss honky brings this sh*t up and just ends up validating all the 19th-century prejudices that keep us from focusing on the real issues.

    • Jin The Ninja

      !!!

      • Camron Wiltshire

        Gleeful Jiz!!

        • Jin The Ninja

          or strong agreement. i guess you can’t help yourself.

    • Liam SUCKS

       Bullshit.  Obama brought this up.  The blame lies entirely upon him. 

  • Lee Swain

    Oh do please fuck off with this idiotic straw man argument!

    Idiots (usually racist ones for hat matter) always like to point out if you reversed anything to do with the black community to white it would be racist! Moronic!You see here’s the thing, you have to reverse EVERYTHING for it to be a fair comparison.IF white people had been subjected to centuries of racism and slavery at the hands of black people and lived in a black dominated culture and THEN Ron Paul launched a “European-Americans for Ron Paul” campaign, THAT would be a fair comparison. It would also NOT be racist!

  • Heather

    Oh, because no one violated separation of church and state.

  • Eric_D_Read

    Silly, racist Camron. Why can’t you just accept the undeniable facts that 2+2=5, and that we have always been at war with East Asia?

      Appreciate it Eric.  Nice to see there are folks who are not inerudite (ninnyhammers) nor jejune (O’Reilly bonus!) simpletons. ;P

  • Marklar_Prime

    I know many who voted for Obama merely because he is black. Such people are the leftist version of the Stormfront crowd and equally racist. Assuming that black people should naturally support Obama despite the rather horrific “content of his character” is pretty racist as well. Personally I voted for Cynthia McKinney but race had nothing to do with it.

    • Mysophobe

      This is an act, right? What kind of game are you running? I have to know.

  • Galaga33

    Did anyone see that “Prayer Breakfast” speech he made? I couldn’t believe all the religious references and phony solemnity. What about the separation of church and state? What about the bald-face lies he told marijuana supporters about not harassing dispensaries that he promised in New Hampshire? Throw the con out. But what monster would take his place?

    Aryans for Newt!

    exactly eric-d ! alex jones doesn’t push an agenda like fox or msnbc, he knows the whole system is rigged on both sides. the republicrats are “one in the same”, cut from the same cloth. people need to really look at whats going on ,on both sides of the so-called aisles  and realize we’re all just pawns in the game and the sooner people figure this out the better for us and this country.

  • Dogbus22

    White Americans for a white President!
    Thanks for making this black v. white, barry.

  • Scott Cunningham

    All Obama is saying by establishing this group is “If you are Black, then vote for me. If you are White, vote for the other guy”. Let me know how it works out for him……
