Another person weighs in on racism – certain he can read the minds of folks he has never spoken to. He talks about peace and unity and thoughtfulness and yet is totally clueless about how his own blanket statement is divisive. And of course it’s CNN feeding it to him.
CNN: President Carter said he thinks that a lot of the animosity directed toward President Obama is race related.
Dave Matthews: Of course it is! I found there’s a fairly blatant racism in America that’s already there, and I don’t think I noticed it when I lived here as a kid. But when I went back to South Africa, and then it’s sort of thrust in your face, and then came back here — I just see it everywhere. There’s a good population of people in this country that are terrified of the president only because he’s black, even if they don’t say it. And I think a lot of them, behind closed doors, do say it.
Is he behind the closed doors with them? Has he heard them say it? Has he polled the population?
Does he even realize how bigoted that answer was?
Does he remember what barry polled at? The margin of victory he had? The demographics of the screaming crowds? O his volunteers and campaign workers?
Did he think Republicans were going to love barry and his massive overhaul? That they weren’t going to be angry at the way barry is protected by the media and Bush was trashed? The way barry has not been vetted in any fashion?
Did he consider how little is known about barry? About how far he has gone to keep it hidden? And how frustrated folks are that the media still refuses to vet him?
Does he know how much the media has not revealed about barry that is negative? How little they covered Van Jones an admitted Communist? How little they are covering ACORN – how little they covered it when they were actively engaged in voter fraud so barry could win?
Has he given thought to how terrorized Secry Clinton would be? How the sexist and misogynists would be screaming angry and how no one, including the press, would do a damn thing about it? Why? Because it happened throughout the primaries.
Matthews: Maybe I’m paranoid about it, but I don’t think someone who disagreed as strongly as they do with Obama — if it was Clinton — would have stood up and screamed at him during his speech. (Shakes his head) I don’t think so.
CNN: Everything has gone to such a frenzied pitch.
Matthews: I think a lot of it has to be on the press. We give the podium to a lot of people who shouldn’t have the podium. The message that’s delivered the loudest and in the most entertaining way is the one that we’re going to put on because that’s what we want. We want ratings more than we want to deliver information. That’s just where the culture’s gotten.
First of all, no one stood up and screamed. What are the chances Matthews even saw that with his own eyes? And at that point barry was lying – he had included illegal aliens in the number he used to count uninsured “Americans”. Rep Wilson had read the bill – how many Democrats do you think read it? I’ll bet Rep Johnson didn’t read it.
And it’s ok for a black man to say – because a man said two racially neitral words – You lie – that that man is the face of the KKK?
That’s perfectly fine?
And Matthews should not have been given a podium on this like he doesn’t want others to have.. Write songs and incite your audience. Don’t talk about a good population of folks you know nothing about – especially when you know nothing about barry. Anyone allowed to make such blanket statements should be quizzed on what they actually know about barry. Then Matthews would be exposed for backing a man he knows nothing about and who uses race to hide behind.
How much do you think Rep Johnson knows about barry?
Reckon he and Matthews believe barry released his birth certificate?
Since they know so much about other folks – can they name the hospital barry was born in?
Unless barry is exposed for the fraud he is – the next three years will be spent listening to claims of racism everywhere. It’s exactly what barry counted on – what he wrote in his book – what he used in the primaries – what he used in the general election and what he has done thus far in his presidency. He only weighed in about race and Wilson’s comments because Michael Steele called him out on it. He is anything but a uniter or transcender of race – he traffics in it.
All you folks who free to make blanket statements of racism and believe people’s outrage is racially motivated – name one thing barry has done that will improve the lives of the next generation. Right now eight months in.
And do you really believe he won’t raise taxes and that the budget deficit isn’t going to increase with his health care whatever he’s decides on this week?
And what about the President of the United States going abroad and apologizing for the US?
And what about President Carter going over and hanging out with HAMAS?
You don’t think that hasn’t outraged folks rightfully?
What has barry done that he has actually – he himself – taken responsibility for?
Has anyone out there put together a graph on barry’s race baiting and how it correlates with his dropping poll numbers and primary losses?
Then it will be right there in black and white for all to see.
