Barack Obama — Why they like him.


Why do people like Barack Obama? More specifically, why does White America like Barack Obama?

I haven’t seen this charisma (edit:  I see his charisma.  But it seems a charade to me). Maybe I’m not fooled by it because I’ve been around so many races for so many years. In my life, race just hasn’t mattered. But I’ve noticed in America, race is a central issue to almost everything. But the only races that really matter. The only colors that really matter politically are Black and White. Kinda funny. It’s as if no other race exists. White and Black or African American and nothing else. Asian doesn’t matter. No one notices. Hispanic only comes into the picture in the Southwest and only nationally, if you are one of the demonized illegal immigrants. Chinese, Indians, Arabs. Who are they? Most people in the States think that China is a country in the lands of Narnia for the Knight Jack Ryan to save damsels in distress from neo-Nazi terrorists who wanted to Nuke a football stadium that some guy named Tom Clancy conjured for his movie scripts. (Didn’t he write books, too.) What’s hilarious is that if you are really from Africa, you aren’t African American. Even if you are black and especially if you are white. Now that’s a wild, new spin on geo-politics and race relations.

Obama gets the Will Smith pass. He’s a black guy who looks kinda white. Talks like a white guy. Don’t ask me what that means. Ask a black comedian. They make fun of white guys talking all the time. The speaking mannerism at which they poke fun is all Obama. Obama wears business suits instead of gangsta baggy pants and white T-shirts or NBA Jerseys. He is White America to a capital T-e-e.

Why is Obama so popular with white America and especially Liberals?

I think it’s because he’s a likable, white-black guy. He’s black but he’s white. He acts, talks and has all of the mannerisms of a white American. If you heard him talk on the phone, you’d assume that he was a white guy. He’s not a reverend in the mold of Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. He certainly doesn’t talk like those guys. Especially when he turns on that laughably fake Southern accent. He’s completely vanilla. He’s not hip hop or gangsta rap. At his “Blackest,” he is the political Will Smith.

Politically, he says virtually nothing. So there is nothing that will really upset anyone. The guy has no real political personality. He mimics the Hope campaigns of Reagan and the Kennedy’s. Does he have any ideas of his own. Nothing that I’ve heard.

Basically, he makes white Americans feel good about themselves. Because he is a black person with whom they feel comfortable. So they feel like they are not racist. So they aren’t bad people.

If Obama were a white guy, he’d be a professor at the City Colleges of Chicago.

Hell, he kind of reminds me of Richie Cunningham.

    Obama aide wants
    talks with terrorists
    Foreign adviser’s ‘anti-Israel policies,’
    sympathy for Hamas, raise concerns

    JERUSALEM ? While officials here largely maintain a policy against interfering in U.S. election politics, some Israeli security officials quietly expressed “concern” about an adviser to Sen. Barack Obama who has advocated negotiations with Hamas and providing international assistance to the terrorist group.

    The officials noted Robert Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, has penned numerous opinion articles, many of them co-written with a former adviser to the late Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, petitioning for dialogue with Hamas and blasting Israel for numerous policies he says harm the Palestinian cause.

    Malley also previously penned a well-circulated New York Review of Books piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000 when Arafat turned down a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern sections of Jerusalem and instead returned to the Middle East to launch an intifada, or terrorist campaign, against the Jewish state.

    Malley’s contentions have been strongly refuted by key participants at Camp David, including President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross, all of whom squarely blamed Arafat’s refusal to make peace for the talks’ failure.

    “We are noting with concern some of Obama’s picks as advisers, particularly Robert Malley who has expressed sympathy to Hamas and Hezbollah and offered accounts of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations that don’t jibe with the facts,” said one security official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    The official stated he was not authorized to talk to the media about U.S. politics, noting Israeli officials are instructed to “stay out” of American political affairs.

    In February 2006, after Hamas won a majority of seats in the Palestinian parliament and amid a U.S. and Israeli attempt to isolate the Hamas-run Palestinian Authority, Malley wrote an op-ed for the Baltimore Sun advocating international aid to the terror group’s newly formed government.

    “The Islamists (Hamas) ran on a campaign of effective government and promised to improve Palestinians’ lives; they cannot do that if the international community turns its back,” wrote Malley in a piece entitled, “Making the Best of Hamas’ Victory.”

    Malley contended the election of Hamas expressed Palestinian “anger at years of humiliation and loss of self-respect because of Israeli settlement expansion, Arafat’s imprisonment, Israel’s incursions, Western lecturing and, most recently and tellingly, the threat of an aid cut off in the event of an Islamist success.”

    Malley said the U.S. should not “discourage third-party unofficial contacts with [Hamas] in an attempt to moderate it.”

    Hamas is responsible for scores of deadly shootings, suicide bombings and rocket attacks aimed at Jewish civilian population centers. The past few weeks alone, Hamas militants took credit for firing more than 200 rockets into Israel.

    Hamas’ official charter calls for the murder of Jews and destruction of Israel.

    Hamas maintained a national unity government with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas until the Palestinian leader dissolved the agreement and deposed the Hamas prime minister last year.

    In an op-ed in the Washington Post two weeks ago coauthored by Arafat adviser Hussein Agha, Malley ? using could be perceived as anti-Israel language ? urged Israel’s negotiating partner Abbas to reunite with Hamas.

    “A renewed national compact and the return of Hamas to the political fold would upset Israel’s strategy of perpetuating Palestinian geographic and political division,” wrote Malley.

    He further petitioned Israel to hold talks with Hamas.

    “An arrangement between Israel and Hamas could advance both sides’ interests,” wrote Malley.

    In numerous other op-eds, Malley advocates a policy of engagement with Hamas.

    After the breakdown of the Camp David talks, Malley wrote a lengthy New York Times piece that mostly blamed Israel and the U.S. for the breakdown of the negotiations.

    Malley was a special assistant to Clinton for Arab-Israeli affairs and was a member of the U.S. peace team during the Camp David negotiations. He currently serves as director of the Middle East and North Africa Program at the International Crisis Group, which is partially funded by billionaire and Obama campaign contributor George Soros, who also serves on the board of the Crisis Group.

    Ed Lasky, a contributor to the American Thinker blog, calls Malley a “[Palestinian] propagandist” who, he charged, bends “the truth to serve an agenda that is marked by anti-Israel bias. … Malley’s writings strike me as being akin to propaganda.”

    Lasky points out Malley’s father, Simon Malley, was a personal friend of Arafat and wrote in support of numerous struggles against Western countries. Simon Malley founded Afrique Asie, a French magazine that was known for its advocacy for “liberation” struggles throughout the world, including the Palestinian cause.

    Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, called Simon Malley a “sympathizer” of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, which, headed by Arafat, carried out numerous terror attacks.

    “[Robert] Malley has seemingly followed in his father’s footsteps: He represents the next generation of anti-Israel activism,” wrote Lasky.

    Obama spiritual adviser also anti-Israel?

    Obama the past few days has taken note of his growing negative image within the pro-Israel and Jewish activist community, reaching out yesterday to a coalition of Jewish and Israeli newspapers.

    Obama told Israel’s Haaretz daily there is a “constant virulent campaign” being waged against him, aimed particularly at weakening support among Democrat voters within the Jewish community.

    Obama said “false” e-mail campaigns calling him Muslim and accusing him of not pledging allegiance to the U.S. have been especially visible in the Jewish community.

    The presidential hopeful urged Haaretz and U.S. Jewish newspapers to use their “megaphone” so people can hear “from the horse’s mouth” that anti-Israel accusations against him are “unfounded.”

    Mass e-mail distributions have pointed out Obama’s spiritual adviser, Jeremiah Wright Jr. of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, recently presented Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan with a “Lifetime Achievement” award. Farrakhan has expressed consistent anti-Israel views.

    Wright, who reportedly married Obama and baptized his daughters, has called for divestment from Israel and refers to Israel as a “racist” state.”

    Obama called Wright’s heralding of Farrahkan a “mistake” but has not spoken out against Wright’s views regarding Israel.

    Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick noted in a column last week, “Obama has taken no steps to moderate his church’s anti-Israel invective. Obama’s affiliation with Wright aligns with his choice of financial backers and foreign policy advisers. To varying degrees, all of them exhibit hostility towards Israel and support for appeasing jihadists.”

    Obama’s pastor disses Natalee Holloway
    ‘White girl goes off and gives it up’ in Aruba, preacher pal says

    Natalee Holloway

    Sen. Barack Obama’s longtime friend and spiritual adviser trashed the memory of a missing and presumed dead American teenage girl, according to church publications reviewed by WND.

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial minister of Obama’s church in Chicago, cited the case of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance in Aruba in complaining about what he sees as the media’s bias in covering white victims of crime over black victims.

    “Black women are being raped daily in Darfur, Sudan, in the Congo and in Sub-Saharan Africa. That doesn’t make news,” Wright said in the August 2005 edition of Trumpet Magazine, a publication of his Trinity United Church of Christ.

    But, “One 18-year-old white girl from Alabama gets drunk on a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and ‘gives it up’ while in a foreign country, and that stays in the news for months!” he added. “Maybe I am missing something!”

    (Story continues below)

    The circumstances involving the coed’s disappearance remain unclear, and the case remains unsolved. Holloway left Mountain Brook, Ala., on a May 2005 senior class trip to Aruba.

    Attempts to reach her family for comment were unsuccessful. But her mother, Beth Holloway, has written a book, “Loving Natalee,” in which she reveals her daughter named Jesus Christ as one of the most influential people in her life in a trove of writings she found in her bedroom.

    In the same 2005 church publication, Wright suggested “white America” had the 9/11 attacks coming, while calling for business “divestment from Israel,” which he refers to as a “racist” state along with America.

    “In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01,” he wrote on page 7. “White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared,’ as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring Black concerns.”

    Obama says he is “proud” of Wright and values their 20-year friendship.

    Though Wright has nurtured Obama’s political career as a close adviser and mentor, the Democrat presidential hopeful says they don’t agree on everything. Wright married Obama and baptized his daughters.

    Louis Farrakhan

    In the November/December 2007 issue of Trumpet, Wright sang the praises of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has described whites as “blue-eyed devils” and Jews as “bloodsuckers.”

    “He brings a perspective that is helpful and honest,” Wright said. “Minister Farrakhan will be remembered as one of the 20th and 21st century giants of the African-American religious experience.”

    Wright then held Farrakhan up as a pillar of “integrity.”

    “His integrity and honesty have secured him a place in history as one of the nation’s most powerful critics,” he continued. “His love for Africa and African-American people has made him an unforgettable force, a catalyst for change and a religious leader who is sincere about his faith and his purpose.”

    Farrakhan’s photo is splashed across the cover of the church magazine, which gushes “the Minister truly epitomized greatness.”

    On Nov. 2, 2007, Wright presented Farrakhan with a “lifetime achievement” award during a Trumpet gala held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. The tribute included a three-and-a-half minute video lionizing “the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.”

    “For his commitment to truth, education and leadership, we honor Minister Louis Farrakhan with the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award,” the video announces.

    Last week, Obama distanced himself from Farrakhan, but did not distance himself from Wright or disavow his praise for Farrakhan.

  3. wow.. i accidentally came across this and wished that i hadn’t. your racism is apparent.

    obama is white because he doesn’t wear baggy pants, listen to gangsta rap or talk like al sharpton? obama is kenyan and white raised in some pretty different places from indonesia to hawaii where baggy pants are not the rage. how dare you tell anyone of any race how they’re supposed to act. my older brother and sister are black but were raised by a white mother – they don’t speak ebonics either but i’m sure you don’t think they’re keeping it real.

    he is truly original. he can’t be labeled. there is no streotype that fits. herepresents america for what she is: a melting pot.

    you can go ahead and keep it real with this blog… real dumb.

  4. Did you pay Chris Rock royalties for using that line?

    Barack Obama is not a Kenyan. If he were Kenyan, he would not be eligible for the Presidency.

    I’m not telling anyone of any race how to act. Take your faux outrage and send it to the people who originated the stereotypes that I merely repeated.

    Obama is not original. There is not a single original idea in the Obama platform or message. Everything is borrowed from Reagan, the weak Carter, Clinton or Kennedy.

    The guy is as original as a a carbon copy.
