As the battle lines appear to be being drawn from the left side of the ledger relative to the “Shampaign ‘12”, the rest of us need to understand that the progressive paradigm has “changed”.. In 2008, the Marxist modus operandi was to “create” a Democratic dossier for the insignificant Illinois pseudo-Senator and to surround that phantasm with the “helium of Hope”. Now the left needs to RUN from the Democratic dossier of damage created ENTIRELY by Obama and his collectivist caliphate. There is no better way to accomplish this despicable goal from the liberal perspective than to resort to the tried and true Democratic deviousness of dealing the race card. You knew that this day was coming..
Please note that if the left was so proud of the “Aesopian Accomplishments” of Obama and his acolytes, slimy political palavering like the utilization of the race card wouldn’t even need to make their way into the Marxist’s marked deck.. This “historic” president and friends who SHOULD be bragging about the “landmark legislation”, the health scare scam, are acting as though the progressive parchment doesn’t even exist and the rest of us wish that that were the case.. From the bailouts to the Scamulous to the health scare to the “war” in Libya, the left has to do a serious amount of diversion.. With oil at well over $100 a barrel, a permanent DEMOCRATIC ten-percent unemployment and silly spending on a scale unheard of in history, the liberals have to do an enormous amount of deflecting..
Again, please keep in mind that if ANY of the Obama/liberal budget busting spending had had ANY positive effects upon the nation and the economy, Obama and the socialists would be sounding their horns of heresy and banging the Democratic drums. NONE of it has worked, unless the decimation of the nation and its economy was their goal.. With that as your totalitarian template, be advised that the return of the old tricks and traps will HAVE to be the liberal leitmotif..
This is the moment when the left starts wheeling out the kooks and the crazies. These are the ones who MUST make the exaggerated and illogical claims directed at the opposition in public. Obama must “remove” himself from such mudslinging. His spokesweasels must occasionally make lighthearted statements allegedly disavowing the progressive propaganda Democratically delivered by these zanies. Those whose political careers are either over or firmly ensconced within the liberal intellectual terra infirma will be laying down the socialist surpressing fire.. Enter from stage left on cue, Jim Clyburn.
The left is keeping their MVP’s (Most Valuable Poltroons) in reserve as they are testing the waters at this early stage. If Clyburn’s comedy hits and sticks, then the left will release their vitriolic veterans, $harpton and Jack$on, when the moment is right..
On Wednesday, Clyburn told the McClatchy Washington Bureau that, “the fact of the matter is, the president’s problems are in large measure because of his skin color..” (“Racism to Blame for Obama’s problems, key Democrat says” McClatchy Newspapers 05/25/2011) Those eighteen words need to be properly dissected in order to reveal the truth hidden beneath them..
“The fact of the matter..” The liberals should NEVER begin a statement in this manner. The entire world knows that the left has a distinct and habitual allergy to anything remotely resembling the “facts” of ANY matter. The left manufactures their own “facts” from thin air which are intended to provide comfort for their true believers and to detour those who snicker at such sophistry.
“..the president’s problems are in large measure..” This particular snippet was parceled out for several reasons. First and foremost, the “president’s problems” belong solely (pun intended..) to HIM and to the LIBERALS who have carefully crafted the nation’s demise virtually unimpeded by the minority opposition. Secondly, “the president’s problems are in large measure..”. They certainly are in “LARGE measure” and that is another of the “facts” or “inconvenient truths” that the liberals are striving to cover up with their calliopes of cacophony..
Immediately preceding Clyburn’s incendiary insights, he began with, “people don’t like to deal with it but,”.. The truth of the matter is, the liberal racists and progressive puppets like Clyburn have NEVER wanted to “deal” with the “problem”. Their reinforcement and reiteration of the carcinogenic idea of their INTENTIONAL division of the races is what keeps them in power. They never wanted to “deal” with the inherent racism of the Democrats themselves which has carefully been morphed from the fire hoses and baseball bats of old to the ideology of failure and the addiction of “benefits” which the liberals of today use so effectively..
The liberal aversion to specifics always seems to manifest itself whenever they get around to trotting out and propping up their smelly scarecrows. “Clyburn noted that he himself got hate mail, racist phone calls and offensive faxes on a regular basis..” Please note the telling absence of any definitive PROOF other than Clyburn’s word on the matter. No “offending faxes” were presented, no “hate mail” produced..
Besides, history has proven in more occasions than the left would like to admit to, that the “proof” only helped to identify the person who made the claim as the culprit of the alleged “crime”.. This “regular basis” template again is the interpretation of someone with an axe to grind and someone who has at least ONE family member employed due to the Obama oligarchy. Clyburn’s daughter is a member of the FCC.. Clyburn at least knows which side of the bread contains the butter which has more to do with his alleged outrage than anything else, however I wouldn’t hold my breath in anticipation of his admitting to such an Epiphany..
“Despite Obama’s evident desire not to focus on his historic status, his race has intruded periodically on his candidacy and his presidency..” You have got to be kidding me.. Obama is all about “focusing on his historic status” and his kneepad wearing fans in the “impartial” media have all but Velcroed this moldy moniker to Obama’s name. His “race” HAS intruded and on almost each and every occasion that it has, it has done so at Obama’s prodding.. “They’re trying to make you scared of me..” “I don’t look like the other presidents..” If there is but one vote to be won, Obama like every liberal politician before him will use ANY leverage or fulcrum no matter how unseemly, in order to attain and retain power.
To bring Obama’s point home, the article referred to a 2008 address given by the sleight of hand/sleight of resume candidate in Philadelphia. Here Obama was surrounded by a controversy that had he NOT been black, would have spelled the end of his idiotic shampaign. The “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright, who for twenty years held the rapt attention of the Obama family from their front row pew seats, was called out as to exactly what he was. One expected Obama to disown the imbecilic Wright but Obama said that “he could no more disown Wright than disown his white grandmother, who he noted had ‘once confessed her fear of black men who passed her on the street’”..
Imagine for a moment John McCain’s pastor preaching as Wright did and does.. That would have been the end of McCain on the spot as a candidate for even the neighborhood dogcatcher. The alleged “point” behind Obama’s lofty claim relative to his grandmother seems irrelevant when compared to the statement made by the “Reverend” Jack$on himself. In March of 1996, Jack$on was quoted in the US News as saying, “there is nothing more painful to me than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then to look around and see somebody white and feel relieved..” One can apparently make such statements when they are clothed in the protective cloaks of the proper pigmentation..
Never fear, Clyburn feels that Obama’s reelection chances are “..improving every day. I think the president has been a good president, a great commander in chief..” I “think” that Clyburn needs to lay off of the “Howard Dean Happy Pills” before it is too late..
Call it what you will, pin the tail on the honkey, do the white thing, it really matters not. The fifth columnists of the fourth estate have begun to do their stretching exercises so that they can again safely continue their habit of bending over blackwards once the Obama shampaign ball gets to really rolling.. With the orchestrated “help” from allies like Clyburn and with what appears to be the cooperation of the Republicans when it comes to forwarding candidates, (No Palin please..) the results might unfortunately end up the same which means the continuation of the dark days (again, pun intended..) for America..
