Just in case you’re not clear about Hillary’s appeals to racism

Standard

This picture crystallizes the essence of the arguments that supporters of Obama, and those Obamanostics, like myself, have been saying for months now.   Does anybody really believe that it is necessary for Hillary to demean herself on Bill O’Reilly and rub shoulders with Richard Mellon Scaife, to communicate with White Democrats and Independents if you’re not consciously trying to send racially coded messages to the white working class.  

What was Hillary’s dig yesterday regarding Jeremiah Wright about if not a blatant attempt to give permission to the White working class to punish Obama for his heretical association with Wright and vote for Hillary or McCain.

Her intention to fatally damage Barack Obama or steal the nomination couldn’t be clearer.   At this point, it no longer matters who ultimately receives the nomination because I am negatively predisposed against them.   Nevertheless, the machinations are still fascinating to watch.

  1. It is long past obvious to everyone. Stevie Wonder can see this blatant appeal to racism.

    Which makes me all the more angry that rather than standing up and calling Hillary on her BS, Obama is too busy slinging Jeremiah Wright under the bus.

    As far as Hillary is concerned, her mission has been accomplished, and with Obama’s assistance, too.

    This woman is absolutely deplorable. I cannot understand why her approval rating isn’t in single digits.

    Notice the way she and her husband manifest utter contempt for BO by not even using his name but by referring to him as “my opponent”, an old lawyer’s trick for dehumanizing an individual.

    I get Barry’s desire to not revile her in return but boy, does he look timid in not doing so.

    He has become so tarnished now it’s a case of the “evil of two lesser”.

  3. As ugly as her behavior is, it pales in comparison to that of her supporters, many of them unabashed Geraldine Ferraro-type ignoramuses. One thing’s for sure, they won’t go away gracefully.

    Political Junkie- I could not concur more. What a shame…

    Whoa now before we all go merrily down the babdwagon path. I agree, Hillary is no choice of mine, HOWVER, she only exploited an opening that Obama handed her on a silver platter. He made it easy for her. The clown here is Wright (and the congregation of sheep that applaud that schlock he calls “religion”). He’s embarrassed Obama and quite frankly the entire AA community that subscribes to that sideshow’s message of hate.

    Obama is not clean in this. Any politician worthi his weight would have exploited these lowlife, backwater relationships. Hillary is simply playing politics. Who honestly wants these types standing around the White House with thier hands out, influencing policy. Same with Hillary, what crappy people surround her as well.

    But what I find really puzzling and disingenuous is the fact that almost everyone acts indignate and continues to deflect from the thes core issues. These are Obama’s relationships. He chose them, he misrepresented them, he was unable to speak directly to the American people about them until he was forced, and then when he finally did, he stuttered and tripped through his comments leaving many to not believe him once again!!

    Tuppers: Who cares if the man in the pic is a “clown”? We have bigger issues, most of America see’s the black church as a bunch of clowns now, thank to Wrights embarrassing charade..

    PJ: How can he “call her” on her BS, its all true, he does indeed have these questionable relation ships. So you are for just deflecting the arguement and playing the race card…..

    Le me be honest, if he can’t handle this with any better judgement and gravitas than he’s shown, I don’t want him anywhere near the WH, foriegn policy, or anything else. Compared to all that, this Wright stuff should have been a minor distraction to him. He should have swatted that down in a bold manner.

    As I said before, there will be 100 posts talking about racism and how this is all white america’s fault. And barely a few holding him accountable for not standing up like a man.

    Meanwhile Wright will be moving in to his gated all-white neighborhood, in his million $ house, with 2 Mercedes out front…..yeah, this is a man you need to hold high on a pedestal.

    So please deflect to your heart’s content, but it does not change the fact that Obama has to have the courage of his convictions…..and all evidence points to the fact that he doesn’t.

  6. Hillary’s tactics are lowdown, no doubt about that.

    But it is precisely the nature of Obama’s “race neutral” campaign and it’s utter dependence on getting confirmed Republican and Republican-leaning white men to vote for him that has left him so terribly vulnerable to the racist attacks he gets from Hillary, from Faux News, CNN, and the rest of the pack.

    Brother Adolph Reed outlined it quite nicely on Democracy Now a couple days ago. He said that Obama has adopted the same strategy as the last four or five Democratic nominees. All of them since Dukakis have counted on the DLC formula winning a big share of what used to be called “Reagan Democrats”, or “suburban soccer moms”, or “NASCAR dads” or whatever is the label of the moment for these Republoican-leaning white voters.

    Other Democrats before Obama had 2 problems implementing that DLC strategy. The first problem with that old DLC game is that to counter it, the Republicans didn’t even have to defend their awful policies. All they needed to do was prove to the fence-sitting conservative white voters that the Democrat was not quite as conservative as he was pretending to be. They “Willie Horton-ed” Dukakis and did similar stuff to Mondale. Clinton only squeaked by cause Ross Perot peeled off millions of Republican votes.

    For a slice of this election’s Republican or Republican-leaning white voters who were going to vote for Obama, all the Repubs need to do is prove that Obama is not as blandly conservative as he appears. For this purpose, more soundbytes of Wright will do just fine, and references to just the ordinary opinions of blacks who support Obama. Reference to or video of any Obama supporter who refers to “imperialism”, for instance, or who thinks, as most of us do, that 9-11 was indeed payback for US policies abroad are also political poison for Obama, because his success depends on white folks seeing him as not contradicting their views that the US is always a “force for good in the world”, that markets are God, that privatization of almost everything is fine, that America and its empire are basically meritocracies, and they sit astride the globe cause it’s God’s Will.

    Which brings us to the second problem with the old right wing DLC presidential strategy that Obama has adopted. It drives the entire political conversation to the right by obliging the supporters of Democrats to keep quiet on Sean Bell and the racist “crime control” and prison industry, to be silent on race and imperialism and much more, for fear of spooking the white voters whom the Democrat wants to get without the bother of changing their views at all.

    What is lost in this conversation is that Obama did not have to choose this DLC strategy to run his campaign. He could have run in the direction that Jesse did in 1984 and 1988, directly and openly espousing substantive progressive policy ideas, instead of building a fan club based on fuzzy marketing about “hope” and “unity”.

    Barack is being savaged by racist, sure. But if he had run to the left, instead of trying to win Republican votes without contradicting any of the fundamentally racist and crazy ideas those voters had, these attacks would still be made, but they would have much less impact because the majority he would need would contain far fewer of those voters.

    In other words, by running a so-called “race neutral” campaign instead of a straight-up honest reformer Obama left himself wide open for this kind of sucker-punch.

  7. Mashawa,

    I have attended Trinity UCC for the past several years. While I agree that over the past several days Rev. Wright has come unhinged, you are quick to drawing sweeping conclusions about him, his congregants and his church, without much information. Trinity, more than most churches, actually practices what it preaches through an array of community ministries. If you were to attend services there on Sunday you would probably hear a sermon with love and compassion as the primary themes. Wright’s clipped speeches were intended to play to a racist audience. His more recent, self-inflicted wounds defy explanation. But you assume that Wright would be setting policy under an Obama administration. That’s a bizarre conclusion, to say the least. Also, you complain about political sideshows yet you contend that this Wright “scandal” is a real issue. Again, this is a paradox. Finally, if we’re comfortable rummaging around the closets of our political candidates to discern the bona fides of their associates, I contend that Clinton and McCain have much more to fear than Barack does.

  8. Clinton has chosen to wage an increasingly racist campaign against Obama. Keeping the Wright issue alive, which she is obviously doing, is a part of it.

    Going on the O’Reilly show right before these last important primaries for her in Indiana & North Carolina was a very conscious attempt to associate herself with the racist campaign by Fox News and others in the corporate media who have systematically misrepresented Wright’s views and are holding Obama accountable for views that he has never expressed.

    Clinton’s appearance on the O’Reilly show also served another important purpose for her. It was a conscious appeal to the Fox News audience, an appeal for their support.

    The fact is that Clinton is running a typical right wing campaign in the “best” tradition of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove and she is deliberately going after the white racist vote.

  9. CHange

    SO let me get this straight, with all the white support Obama has gotten, soem of you still believe a vote against Obama is a racist vote? Any white person not votign for Obama is racist? Perhaps it is Obama marxist, liberal, far left views is turnign many of them off now. Get over it. This campaign is not about race. It is about Patriotism. Obama made it about race when he sopke about race in his PA speech. His speech should have been about American Patriotism. Now all his appearance he is out there with an American flag on his lapel. WHere was it before the JW sermons? Obama needs to take control of his campaign and stop following but lead.

    Hillary Campaign started to turn around every since the most powerful black woman came on Board. Maggie Williams is revealign all of Obama weaknesses. I am enjoying this race and I hope it goes all the way to the end. They make politics interesting, although I could never support any of them.

  10. Mashawa

    TriplBee, many may appreciate your schilling for Wright’s church, I however do not buy it. I’ve been to enough churches in many cities to know that this schlock is indeed a mainstay from the lecturn. I would suggestyou visit black churches, as I have in Altlanta, Houston, and other cities before you assume to lecture. I’ve walked out of many trying to find a church that actually preaches the word of god as opposed to someself-serving racist, BS. Doing good things on one hand why filling the congregation is negativity and racism does not make me want to jump up and down and supportTrinity. Smells like nothing but garden variety hypocisy to me.

    But back to the election. Posters on this blog act as it Barrack doesn’t have to care about white voters. Of course he does! Whites are the ones that will ultimately elect him. You’re damn right he needs to consider his position with them.

    Jesse Jackson? Did someone actually say that OB should run the campaign like JJ? Yeah, good luck with that….Jesse set black politicians back 50 years with his hustling of race. Get real!!

    If Obama is to win this, he now has to be quicker to respond to issues, and do nothing but talk in depth about real issues….not this hope and change fluff.

    He lost me with the massive capital gains tax hike he propsoses…..I guess he’s dumb enough to think that only the wealthy have investments,pensions, 401ks etc……good luck when a family saves just enough to retire and then the “obama tax” kicks in….lol. Let’s all line up and vote for that OK?

  11. NJC

    You know what is really infuriating about this whole business?

    There is a man who distorts the truth, lies, and ruins reputations. And that man is still welcome at the White House. He was very close to the President.

    I’m speaking of Karl Rove, of course. And I’m not sure, but I doubt he’s done a lick of good in his community.

    This whole business about Wright is just so much BS. It should’ve never come to this.

    “Tuppers: Who cares if the man in the pic is a “clown”? We have bigger issues, most of America see’s the black church as a bunch of clowns now, thank to Wrights embarrassing charade..” — Mashawa

    Hmm. From the time Peter gave his first sermon — when onlookers wondered aloud if our 1st Rock of the christian church was filled with too much wine — wondrous perceptions of the church are nothing new.

    In fact, on these very blog pages, I’ve seen how self-proclaimed black intellectuals poke fun of black church tradition — a tradition that carried us through slavery and Jim Crow segregation — in a way that makes a mockery of black folks just the same.

    I think the bigger problem, which in fact led me to write this comment, is NOT how white america views black people, a population that whites have never really fully understood (and in many cases attempted to marginalize in HIStory books) since the days of antiquity.

    No. The bigger problem is how the rest of the world views America. Pick a region: Europe; Asia; Latin America; the Middle East. Next, go online and read an online newspaper. You will find consensus on two things these days:

    * Folks in Washington DC have become the laughing stocks of the world given our folly in Iraq.

    * Even as our exportation of “toxic” U.S. mortgages wash up as logic-defying losses across overseas shores as bad investments, Wall Street is losing its clout. In fact, London is overtaking New York as the premier leading financial center of the world.

    Both of those things have implications for U.S. jobs, our ability to access credit for homes, schools, businesses. Whether or not we can travel overseas because the value of our currency is so low (making foreign travel more expensive). And more general, our standing in the world.

    And that’s just politics and finance.

    People mention that Obama sat in the church for umpteem years without saying something to rev Wright. That Obama should have, “stood up like a man” and done something.

    But the problems I mentioned above were not created overnight either. And I have presented a case that either one of those problems are significantly bigger problems than anything Pastor Wright had to say, but which Obama did not confront. So what?

    Applying the very same critieria some of you apply in your castigation of Obama and cognizant that the Constitution as well as our Creators empowered We the People and as Individuals to take a stand for what is right: I can only conclude that many here are being downright hypocrital at best, at outright cowards at worst for standing by and WATCHING, doing nothing but a bunch of TALKING, while the real problems that have plagued us have gone on….and CONTINUE to go on.

    This is why I don’t come around the block as much. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s hypocrisy.

  13. Mashawa

    HJC: Could you be any more obscure if you tried?

    As much as I dislike Bush and his admin, Karl Rove was and still is good at one thing, politics. Thats his job. Surely you are not naive enough to think no otherl politcal parties has this type of person and and of course they are pinnicle of truth and justice🙂

    Unless I’m imistaken, Karl Rove has never spewed racist, hate-america first pablum from the pulpit and claled it religion. I think you’re missing the issue here. Obama allowed this to happen.

    And you can be sure, Obama has some good political architects in his camp too, of ocurse you wouldn’t know it by the issues lately. Surely someone gave him really really bad advice about Wright.

    I imagine the conversation went something like this. “Ok Obama, you’re running for the POTUS, but we think you should stand by that racist, hate-spewing clown, and ignore 80% of your voting block, yeah, that’s a good strategy” With advice like that, maybe HE needs Karl Rove, I hear he’s free these days!

Let’s all line up and vote for that OK?” — Mashawa

    Mashawa, your post at 5/2 at 6pm contained a number of ideas that are just plain wrong.

    * First, investments and plans including pensions, 401ks get taxed as ordinary income upon distribution at retirement age, not as capital gains. Hence, there would be no “obama tax” on the family you referred to for those investments. If they are like most families, their income at retirement age will be lower than their income at their younger working age. As a result, their taxes paid on ordinary income would be lower as well.

    Still concerned about mom and pop? they could put their investment monies into a Roth IRA account where there is no taxes paid of any kind at distribution. (that’s because the taxes would have already been paid upfront). Most working families, including the working poor, could qualify for a Roth as their incomes are within income eligibility.

    You say Mom and pop are too rich to put money into a Roth IRA account? Hmmm…., then maybe they CAN afford to pay a little more in capital gains taxes given our government borrows like a banana republic, we face a social security and medicare tsunami disaster when baby boomers retire, and the costs of financing the Iraq war will likely be passed on to our great grandchildren. Not that making sacrifices are popular.

    In ANY event, it would be the rich who were mostly afftected by the capital gains tax, not the working poor.

    Stop trying to scare people who don’t know better.

    And your comment about Jesse Jackson and the nature of his campaign being a race husler — especially in light of his 1988 presidential campaign which attempted to be race transcending, not race baiting — was also inacurate. You say Jesse set back black politicians 50 years?

    Listen again:
    1988 Democratic National Convention Address
    http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/jessejackson1988dnc.htm

    If it wasn’t for Jesse, there would be none of this Obama *ISH.

  15. Rick

    One more thing…

    Some people on here have the damn nerve to say that Blacks who support Obama only do so because they are black. That’s the *ish that sets black politicians, and black people, back 50 years. 100 years.

    I struggle to find a difference between the black person who makes that claim and the white bigot who would say the sista who made it into Michigan Law school made it there only because she was black. Or that the brotha who works at a prestigous firm only got that position because he is white. And neither one because they actually have the intellectual abilities to deserve to be there. Or that blacks are too stupid to know the difference between the candidates’ different policies and then decide for themselves which candidate is best for them. And so they check off a box for the candidate that looks like them automatically.

    Now that is some racist BS right there, whether a black person or a white person says it.

    “RECLAIMING THE AMERICAN DREAM”🙂

  18. I will say this it’s not about Rev. Wright. White America is using this for an excuse to not vote for Obama. We all know that Wrights calling is not to Obama it is to a higher power rather we want to believe it or not.

    Rev. Wright was not call to make sure Obama become the 1st black president he was called to preach to God’s people. Think about it this way if he shape Obama think about all the other greats that could come out of there. Do we think America is not looking at that? Come on!

    Think people the media came after him he was in his own church speaking and preaching to the people that was sent to him. He was empowering and working with the people on the South side of Chicago why white america and others were doing what ever they do. So for our people to keep attacking him about doing something to Obama to me Obama did it to him.

    I believe he do stand for what the black church supposed to be. The black church in most of our cities are not the same church that Rev. Wright speaks about.

    He and his church was and is doing what God has call us all to do help our brothers and sisters when they are in need. We have attack a great work because we want to say a black man is our president weather, he cares about us or not that is a sad thing.

    Too me Obama has showed us what he think about the 12% of us and it ain’t good.
    It has nothing to do with us he was and is concerned about those blue collar workers.
    I ask this question ain’t we important?

    i respect the viewpoints of those who do not support Hillary Clinton…but posting a blog to suggest she is attempting to “steal” the election because of an answer she gave to a question posed to her in an interview AND/OR suggesting there is some underhanded and covert manipulation of her supporters to hold bigoted signs (hence the Barack “Hussein” Obama poster) at her rallies is not a productive way to move this conversation forward.

    does anyone remember the time in new hampshire, at a rally for Hillary Clinton, when a white man held up a yellow sign that read “Iron My Shirt” (http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/01/07/iron-my-shirt/) ? And then he started shouting the phrase repeatedly at the top of his lungs? No one accused Senator Obama or his campaign of trying to send gender coded messages to the white folk in New Hampshire. there are bigoted supporters on both sides of the democratic campaign trail. as Obama said, he cannot disown his racist grandmother more than he cannot disown his pastor (before he disowned him, of course).

    i urge us all to move forward.

    unfortunately, this posting is a “trigger happy” response that folds nicely into the media narrative of Hillary’s persona, which is this calculated, eating babies, do-anything-to-get-elected man-woman hell-bent on creating the closest thing to a monarchy that American can get but is totally untrue.

    this election is very contentious, especially in the black community. it would do us all a great benefit to stop race-baiting our own folks into these flash-pan accusations of racism. such a reactionary bitchfest is certainly not productive to the unfolding of this democratic contest.

    there are other issues that we should be talking about…like finding a way that is fair to both candidates to count the votes of florida and michigan. as black americans, who have been disenfranchised and denied the right to vote, how can we just sit back and let any vote not be counted?!

    i’m just sayin….THINK

  25. TripLBee

    I’m Just Sayin…

    You are correct to point out that Hillary Clinton should not be held responsible for the race baiting undertaken by her supporters, including the supporter featured in this blog. That being said, she should be held accountable for a campaign strategy that plays upon white racism. She has run a disgraceful campaign. While she is not responsible for the placard displayed in this blog, it rather succinctly sums up her message.

  26. I'm Just Sayin....

    TripLBee…

    What are the ways in which her campaign strategy has played upon white racism?

    Do you mean to suggest that Hillary Clinton’s message on and off the stump has been – essentially – to convey to whites that Senator Obama is a Muslim? If so, how has she done that?

  27. TripLBee

    I’m Just Sayin…

    1. Her husband’s comparison of Obama’s win in SC to Jesse Jackson’s;
    2. Pressing Obama to “denounce and reject” Lois Farrakhan—a man Obama does not even know;
    3. Her constant hammering the drum that Obama is out of touch with working class white voters;
    4. Her comments that Obama is not a Muslim “as far as I know.”;
    5. Her assertion that Rev.Wright “would not be my pastor” when she worships with a far right prayer group in the US Congress;
    6. Her authorized parade of “good Negroes” (Bob Johnson, Andrew Young, Stephanie Jones Tubbs, etc.) to pound her message that Barack is a “bad Negro.”

    I could go on and on and on. What is clear to the majority of black Americans, and to an increasing plurality of other Americans, is that Clinton is using the same racial playbook that we’ve come to expect from the GOP. I am shocked because I never held the Clintons in such low regard as to assume that race baiting so overtly would be their primary campaign strategy. The fact that she is going to lose the nomination provides some comfort however. I can’t wait to see her concession speech.

  28. NJC

    You mean like how Bill made sure to bring up Jesse Jackson’s (the black man) win in South Carolina even though it wasn’t asked in the question. Obama = black, so big deal about winning something.

    And look at it this way, there would of been a lot more things like that coming with no guilt at all if someone hadn’t started calling them on it.

    I believe the Clintons were a lot more willing to go down that road — they just haven’t been able to get away with it easily. Their spirit was willing, even though they haven’t been able to pull it off as much as they probably thought they’d be able to.

  29. The next time that heifer say she wouldn’t stayed in Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years I wish some one ask her why did she stay with whorish Bill for 30 years. I would love to here her explaining that. Like she said we chose our pastor so, don’t we chose our spouses too?

  30. Ann…
    I agree with you but I am happy that none of Obama’s supporters or surrogates have done so.

    Another thing that comes to mind in light of Nixonia Clinton’s latest racial ruses
    is just how right Samantha Power was right.

    An old question I raised a while ago was would you vote for the democratic ticket assuming Hillary was nominee and Obama was the running mate. (to recap, many said no.)

    a NEW question I have for you is:
    Would you vote for the ticket if Obama is the nominee, but the party pushes him to put Clinton as the running mate? let me go first:

    HELL NO!

    I wouldn’t do that to Obama, i.e., have him go to the White House and let Bill and Hillary hijack the presidency ala Dick Cheyney.

    Even worse yet, I would NOT sleep well at night knowing that Hillary Clinton would be 1 heartbeat away from the U.S. presidency…

    …and that Obama’s heartbeat would be the one in the middle.

    Hell no. Hell to the hell hell now.

    Obama is not going to pick Clinton to be his VP. My early bet is that he’ll select Ted Strickland, the gov. of OH, though I’d rather he started building an unbeatable black-brown coalition by selecting Bill Richardson. He’s not that bold however.

    DON’T BE SURPRISED! hillary just decided to wear her hooded outfit for that interview. I’m more surprised how people are reacting to her david duke side, Her husband, the so-called first black president, showed us all how he truly felt bout black people by signing into affect laws that has reduced young african american men in the communities nationwide. And there she was again a few weeks back in pennsylvania talking about locking up the rest of us…. and the poles showed that it really appealed to alot of people…

    SO DON’T BE SURPRISED, BE AWARE OF OUR OWN SO-CALLED LEADERS WHO STAND NEXT TO HER… THEY ARE LIKELY TO APPROVE A BILL TO RE-ENSLAVE US ALL, JUST FOR A AUTOGRAPH PICTURE OF HILARY OR BILL TO HANG ON THEIR WALL…
