Does the White House endorse the view that Republicans are racists?

Have a look at this item from Conn Carroll. True, the shout “They’re racist” came from an audience member, but it was one of only a very few(1) the White House saw fit to include in the official transcript of Obama’s speech on immigration in El Paso(2), which does lend it a somewhat “official” quality.

So, question for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: Does the President of the United States agree that Republicans and border-security advocates are racists?

(1) The others being expressions of adulation for Obama, which we can assume have the WH seal of approval.

(2) Which happens to be in a state that’s burning to the ground, not that Obama has noticed.

    “They’re racist” is a dogwhistle to the folks in the immediate and secondary audiences that Republicans, specifically, are racist regardless of their skin color.

    Part and parcel of his ‘they’re too stoooopid’ to live dogwhistle in his joke on moats and alligators.

    The media used this trick during the 2008 campaign when Obama’s supporters would garner attention by shouting this and other epithets during speeches by Palin and the crackpot.

    If Obama ever came up with something original: a thought, a sentence, or gesture – you can be sure it was scripted for him by David Axelrod.

    Why should he pay attention to anything not centered on him or his policies?

    After all, he’s president and you’re not, and if you don’t believe it he’ll tell you that very quickly.

    And DaveO, don’t hold your breathe waiting for a jackass, any jackass, to come up with an original thought (Axelturf included).

    You do not surround yourself with a minister who spews hate speech from the pulpit for 20+ years and all the other Marxist types… and follow Alinsky’s basic rules.. hire Holder… Van Jones… etc. and not be racist. There is no such term as “reverse racism” which preconceives that all racists are white. Anyone can be a racist…ask Rev. Wright. Basically, the Obama team has employed the race card at every avenue—especially to silence their critics. Holder’s selection of cases to prosecute or not prosecute pretty much explains it all. Some of us have felt as if this entire administration is out to punish the middle class in American–although they always SAY “the rich” but the class being targeted is the middle class and all the Americans who work diligently to achieve something.

    As Tec, the gang leader, says in the 2003 movie “Malibu’s Most Wanted” …
    Tec: STOP IT! You say one more line and I’mma have to smoke myself!

    Could Obama please just shut up.

    Obhammud had an original thought one time but it died of loneliness.

  7. PE says:

    Obama says we want an alligator filled moat for a border. That means he is saying we are racist. Now, filling that moat with crocodiles would be far more effective, although murderous, but at least it wouldn’t be racist, which would be far worse than murderous.

    Sheesh. I’d vote for a doll from Disney’s Small World attraction before I’d vote for the malevolent clown that’s now in charge.

    I vote that everyone be issues a stomach distress bag when Obama speaks.

    Speaking of Obama speaking…I was just informed that Michelle Obama will be the keynote speaker at West Point during Graduation week…yes, they cancelled the Hop and now we must go to a formal reception and then hear her speak at Friday night’s dinner.

    I am very excited and proud of my nephew who is graduating and am escorting my 81-year-old father so he can be part of the occasion, but once I was told who was speaking….well the stomach distress bag just sounds like the perfect accessory to my formal attire. Do you think she will tell us to put down the butter???

    I don’t know if the WH believes Repubs/Conservatives to be racist but they certainly do believe that epithet to be a valuable part of their slimy campaign strategy. Racism, on the part of this filthy administration, is only one small piece in their overall re-election narrative.

    To this day I am astounded that so many people were taken in by this fraud.

    What a perfect line for Thunderthighs at her West Point campaign speech for Duh-1!

    I’m sure most of you have seen the movie “The Ten Commandments”. Remember Edward G. Robinson’s character “Dathan”? The guy who was “never at fault” for what the Israelite slaves had to endure and was the first one to jump on the lifeboat during the exodus out of Egypt. Then once on board he did everything he could to sabotage Moses every step of the way, even after witnessing miracles. He was the original anarchist Community Organizer B.C.

    Obama and Dathan have the same traits – selfcenteredness, hunger for power, a coniving ability to incite one group against another for personal gain (while at the same time building strawman arguments to direct the blame at his opponent {or predecessor} and keep himself guiltless {remember how Dathan blamed Aaron for constructing the golden calf and corrupting the people, even after he initiated it?}).

    The “racist” method falls in line with the divisive tactic of Dathan. Keep the fire of chaos burning. Especially when you’ve got the MSM in your corner to promote the narrative. Set groups against each other then point out who the “bad guy” is. As Chuck said, it’s still astounding that so many people fall for such b.s., and continue to.
