Obama Plays The Race "Riot" Card

Posted by Casey on June 5, 2007

This was quite possibly the least classy move by the presidential hopeful to date. The media ignored his wife’s racist comments a few months back, but now he himself has made some racially charged allegations.

AP:

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Tuesday that the Bush administration has done nothing to defuse a “quiet riot” among blacks that threatens to erupt just as riots in Los Angeles did 15 years ago.

The first-term Illinois senator said that with black people from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still displaced 20 months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration and resentments are building explosively as they did before the 1992 riots.

Obama has now joined the “Bush hates black people” express. Nearly two years after Katrina … victims are still refusing to go back to work, and rebuild their lives. Somehow that’s Bush’s fault.

I wonder why Obama didn’t address how the areas of predominantly white Katrina victims have recovered so much better than areas of predominantly black victims. Then again, if we look at the most recent FEMA trailer story dealing with chronic illness we see that white people are still displaced as well. Take a look at this story from last month about a family whose child has gotten sick because they chose to live full time in a temporary trailer … notice they are white.

The Katrina victims that are still displaced are of varying races Mr. Obama. While the decent, responsible Katrina victims have rebuilt … the welfare whores have not. Race has nothing to do with it.

“This administration was colorblind in its incompetence,” Obama said at a conference of black clergy, “but the poverty and the hopelessness was there long before the hurricane.

“All the hurricane did was to pull the curtain back for all the world to see,” he said.

Now Obama is saying that it’s Bush’s fault that there were so many black poor people in New Orleans before Katrina? What about the black mayor, or the long time Democrat controlled government there.

Obama was right about one thing though. The Bush administration was colorblind, and that’s why they promoted blacks and other minorities to positions of prominence. They didn’t see Rice, or Powell, as blacks. They saw them as people, and isn’t that what we are all striving for? How is being colorblind a bad thing Obama, and why are you proclaiming this administration as racist when they’ve promoted more minorities than any other administration in history?

Throughout the entire speech Obama compared Katrina to the LA riots. As if there is any sort of comparison between a natural disaster, and a jury acquitting cops for beating a black man.

He argued that once a hurricane hits or a jury renders a not guilty verdict, “the frustration is there for all to see.”

O’Reilly said it best last night … you can barely understand anything Obama says.

BONUS:

Hotair has video of “comedian” Kathy Griffin saying Condi is a tool for the white man.

I saw Griffin get zero laughs, and some boos, a few months back when she was performing in front of some of our troops. She began ripping Bush, the war, and she only succeeded in pissing off the troops in the audience. It was one of those “I know I’ve been ripping you guys lately, but I do love the troops” ploys, and it backfired big time.

Griffin also has her own show now on some cable network. I was watching a promo for it the other day in which she makes fun of herself because no one knows who she is. In one spot she approaches some soldiers and asks if they’d like tickets to her show. They shook their heads no, and snickered in disgust. She was using this as proof that no one knows her, but the troops do know her … they just don’t like her.
