Obama and the “Professional Black-Victims Cartel”

Americans beware. In the future, should you disagree with “President” Obama, apparently you will be labeled a racist.

As has been highly reported, Democrat Representative John Lewis of Georgia said McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin were “sowing the seeds of hatred and division…” In the same breath, Lewis then made a comparison to George Wallace. The reference to Wallace can only mean one thing – racism.

It seems the attacks were made because McCain and Palin have started to comment on known associates of Obama who have questionable backgrounds. Obama has tried to get people off the trail of these associates by saying it was a long time ago, not relevant, and so on. When that didn’t work, Obama’s troops played the race card even though John McCain has made no reference to Obama’s race.

The fact is Obama’s relationships to known communists do matter. They speak to his character. They show who influenced him in his political choices. And they tell us something about what an Obama Administration may be interested in pursuing as policy.
Could Obama, himself, be a communist? Is it a fair question when discussing his qualifications and deciding how to cast a ballot? Obama says no – it’s racist.

Is it fair to look at the statements and records of those around Obama – those who openly support him, those being paid by his campaign? Obama says no – racist. But that doesn’t prevent Obama and his group to look at who surrounds and supports John McCain – right wing fringe – they tell us. Isn’t that another term for racist, according to them?

There are lots of questionable characters in Obama’s immediate circle, including Bill Ayres. Bill Ayres still travels to communist countries in support and praise of policies which rob individuals of their rights and personal possessions. For instance, in November, 2006, Ayres traveled to Venezuela to attend an education forum. That’s a nation quickly falling behind a new curtain of tyranny under President Hugo Chavez. With the great dictator by his side, Ayres proclaimed his support for “the profound educational reforms under way here in Venezuela under the leadership of President Chavez. We share this belief that education is the motor-force of revolution… I look forward to seeing how you continue to overcome the failings of capitalist education as you seek to create something truly new and deeply humane…”

Is it fair to wonder if Obama might consider Ayres’ ideas on education and Capitalism as his own? And if they share those ideas, would it be too far fetched to wonder if perhaps Obama could even consider Ayres, or someone like him, to be his Secretary of Education? Personal relationships matter.

Obama is upset that McCain crowds are calling him a terrorist. How absurd, says his campaign. Just mean spirited. But Ayres was/is a true-life terrorist. He was a founder of the Weather Underground. They planted bombs in the Capitol Building. They killed cops. They called for the overthrow of the United States as they sided with our enemy in Vietnam – the same communists who, at the time, were holding John McCain prisoner. And Ayres held a fund raiser for Barack Obama. Does it matter?

How about Obama’s relationship with ACORN. Obama’s campaign paid them some $800,000 to register voters. Fraud has been found in several states as ACORN has turned in voter registration forms with multiple addresses and social security numbers for the same name. ACORN has endorsed Obama. But to question the possible connection to ACORN’s vote fraud and Obama’s campaign is just racist.

Finally, there is Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam and one of the most documented white-haters in the nation. Farrakhan, by the way, is associated with Obama’s minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, but that would be racist to point out.

But let’s look at what Farrakhan said on February 24, 2008 to a Nation of Islam Savior’s Day gathering. “You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.” Farrakhan had earlier suggested he would keep a low profile in the campaign, despite his enthusiasm for Obama. Does it matter that Obama attracts the support of the man who openly hates whites more than any other? What does Farrakhan know about Obama’s positions that attract him?

Here is something that may provide some insight into Obama supporters’ use of the race card. In 2007, it was learned that the University of Delaware has a mandatory program that requires residence hall students to acknowledge that “all whites are racist.” The program went on to offer misguided whites “treatment” for incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering a school.

Now, why did the school think all whites are racist? Because this is their definition of racism: “A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture, or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. System, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.” The school’s policy deserves mention because it is advocated by most self-appointed black leadership.

There you have it. Blacks can’t be racist, because they don’t have power over anyone. Only whites can be racists. So for Obama and his people to call McCain or anyone racist is simply a way of saying “Hey, Whitey!”

Pity the struggling middle class black Americans who simply work to better themselves with nice homes in the suburbs, nice schools for their kids, nice cars and clothes – all the things any of us want. Unfortunately for them, the “Professional Black Victims Cartel” run by the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons and Barack Obamas accuse them of selling out – indicating they are “Uncle Toms” who are just trying to be white – turning their back on their ghetto brothers. There is no win for these folks. By their definition of racism, they become racist themselves, oppressing their own kind. And for lower income blacks who may have dreams of their own, the “Cartel’s” message is clear: their destiny is to be victims for life.

For the record, before we completely lose the English language to such gibberish, the true definition of a racist is one who hates another simply because of the color of his skin. Funny, wasn’t it Martin Luther King who dreamed of the day when people would be judged, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character? Apparently Barack Obama is no Martin Luther King.

So get ready America. If we get “President” Obama, any opposition we voice against his “compassionate” policies to redistribute our possessions to the “victims” will be met with charges of racism. As Louis Farrakhan has told us, the Messiah has spoken.
