They must be or all their own spinning would drive them crazier than they already are. Right now BO supporters are rushing out to explain to us that if we just understood the Black church culture we’d have no problem with what the Minister Wright said. Thus speaketh self appointed wise man, David Gergan.
BO himself, with his surrogates, is spreading the race-card-spin around the gullible media like warm butter. Their message is clear. If you don’t vote for BO then you are racist. Oh, we know this has been out there for months, but now there is a huge intensity given this message.
It was out there and worked just great where there were caucuses because there were many people who did not want to be seen as racist because they feared the violent consequences.
Let’s just stop this in its tracks. People, many people vote for Hillary because they just don’t like BO. Then there are those who support her because she is a smart, experienced woman and that drives the boyz crazy mad.
There’s no racial bias in most Hillary voters and for those who are biased it seems that freedom of opinion is still allowed in this democracy. Wrong! According to BO and surrogates. Racism is dividing the country and you must elect BO to keep the country together. His campaign does nothing to condemn or stop the threatened violence that is rampant among his supporters. He revs up animosity toward whites without noting that Blacks also have interracial fears.
Bob Herbert wrote (12/12/93): Jesse Jackson is traveling the country with a tough anti-crime message that he is delivering to inner-city youngsters. In Chicago he said, "There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved." http://www.dailyhowler.com/
Hillary is not the divider here; it is BO who intends to win at any cost – the very intent he faults HRC for. His surrogates constantly blame women, who are a loyal 55% of the Democratic Party voters, for not abandoning Hillary.
But think about the big picture. Who can beat McCain in November? The following URL gives everyone a chance to figure it out for themselves and read what others have calculated. It’s much better than letting one’s self be led around by a disinformational media.
Many more women and men are writing and talking and blogging and joining together to come forth to say, “No, not again. We demand a fair nomination fight; we demand fairness in reporting by the media. If racism is a crime then sexism is. Don’t expect us to give in and vote for BO.
On Friday, it got to be too much for Alegre, a diarist on the flagship liberal blog DailyKos, who frequently writes in support of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I’ve put up with the abuse and anger because I’ve always believed in what our online community has tried to accomplish in this world,” Alegre wrote Friday evening. “No more.”
Keith Olbermann pandered mightily in an interview given to BO, regarding his Minister Wright friendship, just hours after castigating Hillary in one of his scathing comments that always before has been limited to traitors and lawbreakers.
But he should have addressed the Ferraro story with BO in that interview. He should have made clear that on rethinking it that both he and the rest of the media went of half-cocked and gender biased.
It would have been truthful and fair but that’s not in the spin – that would never please the corporate bosses. So he and the others just pop a few more Dramamine pills and ride their spin knowing that the Democrats must have a united party to win and counting on women to give up and give in as usual.
BO showed himself to be a hypocrite when he stood by his minister but separated himself from certain sexist, racists’ rants: "I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News [4/11/07], "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude." http://www.abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=3031317&page=1
Michelle Obama has made inflammatory statements that appear to be akin to those of Rev. Wright – it seems both MO and BO have had close association for many, many years with him and could not escape his sexists and racists ideology.
It was noticeable that BO revised his claim that he had never heard incendiary speech from his minister Wright somewhat in his long TV sermon/lecture to the country on 3/18/08, but only Repug stations and pundits mentioned it.
BO was aware of the terrible things Wright said and feared getting caught in an outright lie. He was cautioned by his own supporters to come clean.
Now the media will dissect his long TV sermon/lecture and aside from FOX [and one brave soul on NSNBC, Joe Scarborough] will rave, pat him on the back and cheer him on as they are paid so well to do. #
