Op-ed:
Hey Obama...it's time to put the race card to bed
By: Diane Sori

Dear Mr. Obama,

While I know it's proper form is to address you as Mr. President, but as one of the proud 47+% who refused to buy into your liberal socialist agenda, and as one who respects and honors the office of the presidency, I just cannot in good conscious address you by that title for your usurping of the presidency through voter fraud and intimidation, machine tampering, and denying our military's votes to be counted, I would then be dishonoring that very office if I did so.

So Mr. Obama, let's cut the formalities and get right into it...stop trying to use race to intimidate and shame 'We the People' into marching in lockstep with you and your race-baiting buddies...Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, and Louis Farrakhan...and your so-overplayed collective guilt trip for slavery as it will NO longer work.  Slavery ended in America 150+ years ago in case you've forgotten, and 'We the People' are fed up with it being thrown in our faces every chance you and your buddies get for NO one alive today owned slaves...period.  

Next, Mr. Obama you are NOT America's first black president...you are America's first mixed race/bi-racial president as your mother was 100% white...you're half-W.H.I.T.E Mr. Obama ...the very racial group you so hate but have NO problem putting your hand out to and accepting contributions to your party from. 

And while there's NO problem with your reveling in your long ago college-found 'blackness,' please let's put the race card to rest here and now for remember Mr. Obama, America is still predominately white and you were voted in twice by that very white majority you now claim is against you because they can't deal with America having a black president.

"There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President,” you whined in a recent interview.

Come on Mr. Obama you really can't believe that for do you think white America suddenly and miraculously discovered you were black...half-black that is...after five tumultuous years in office.  Did it ever cross your mind that it's your policies and politics...its ObamaCare, spying on 'We the People,' and Benghazi...it's the far left direction you've taken our country into...it's the scandals, the LIES, and the cover-ups...it's the catering to America's enemies as you defame our military and veterans every chance you get...it's your deliberate ripping off of healed over racial scars that have now set American race relations back years...it's your total disregard and disrespect for our Constitution...it's your arrogance and narcissism...it's all this and so much more that we don't like and the color of your skin plays NO...I repeat NO...part in that dislike even while in your own perceived perception every time someone speaks up or goes against what you say or want you whine it's because of your race.

It's NOT and deep down I think you know it's NOT, but I guess outwardly on the surface you haven't figured that out yet because if you opened your eyes...and stopped taking vacations on our hard earned taxpayer dime...and saw the reality around you you'd discover millions of Americans still out of work...our economy still limping along at best...our seemingly losing Iraq because you don't know what it takes to be a Commander-in-Chief...our becoming a laughing stock in the eyes of world leaders...and that you have done absolutely NOTHING of substance to improve the lot of black Americans who you made so many promises to five short years ago.  And it's so sad that the very people who you want to keep control over so they dare NOT realize that they're being used for votes by you and your liberal Democratic ilk are the very people who look up to you as the man who crossed and conquered the racial divide. NO Mr. Obama, your race place NO part in any of that...your sellout of America and the American people of all colors is what we don't like.

So Mr. Obama, let's cut to the chase and please try to accept some truth for a change...some truth that for you racism is an emotional cash-cow...you use it to keep those in your orbit in line...you use it to keep Congress in line...and you try to use it to keep 'We the People' in line.  You can in NO way accept the fact that it's both easier and advantageous politically to claim that some in America are against you simply because they don't like the color of your skin than it is for you to accept the truth that to do otherwise would force you to face the one thing you dare NOT face...admitting that your policies, laws, and decisions are all failures...with many decisions made and policies set in haste so you could jet-off to yet another fundraiser...for it then shifts the blame off the Republican House...off the TEA Party...and puts it directly back on you where it so rightly belongs.  And being the narcissist that you are...taking responsibility for your own actions is as foreign to you as when your muslim brethren DHS Security Adviser Mohamed Elibiary saidAmerica is an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution,” is to us.

And so Mr. Obama, as we head into the upcoming mid-term elections we on the right know that you will be pulling out the race card every chance you get in an effort to save a Senate that is heading towards RED but for the sake of this country...for the sake of all those Americans hurting because of your misguided policies...for the sake of our brave troops fighting to win 'the hearts and minds of the enemy' instead of being allowed to fight to win...isn't it time to put the race card to bed as it's done its job in dividing America in ways we haven't seen in decades and that is something you built... something you own...something you must be called to task for.

And let my voice be added to the growing list of others calling for just that.

Signed, 
An American Patriot who's had ENOUGH!

  2. Wow. What a Bunch of Crap!

    President Obama was exactly right. Some people don’t like him because he’s African-American. I didn’t think this was even remotely controversial. But wow. Some of the usual suspects erupted in protest, behaving suspiciously defensive when, in fact, the president wasn’t really talking about them specifically.

    Predictably, the conservative entertainment complex lost its collective bowel control and ended up proving Obama’s point!

    Fact: there are more than a few people who think it’s terrible that there’s an African-American president. It has nothing to do with successes or failures. I’ll come back to this point.

    You clearly don’t get it. Indeed, while the president has made some mistakes along the way, he’s been routinely assaulted by all sides for almost every reason. On the left, he’s worse than Bush. On the right, he’s a Brundlefly of Mao, Hitler and Stalin. On the left, he’s corporatist. On the right, he’s a communist. Everything from his use of Teleprompters to the Affordable Care Act has been framed as a scandal and punctuated with the obligatory “gate” suffix. Anyone at Glenn Beck’s tree fort ever heard of Darrell Issa?

    That aside, whether you voted for him or not, it’s an empirical fact that more than a few white Americans who think the Obama presidency represents the emerging Browning of America and the end of white civilization. They believe that this menacing (yet also somehow effete) black guy is unlawfully occupying the White House — a black guy whom they seriously believe to be an Islamic sleeper cell.

    Have any of these radio and TV goons heard of Birthers? Would there be such a conspiracy theory if the president wasn’t an African-American man with the name Barack Hussein Obama? Of course not. Would some people forward viral images of watermelons growing on the White House lawn? Nope. Would there have been a man carrying around a Curious George monkey doll, referring to it as “Little Obama?” No way. Would the most popular talk radio host and, somehow, the eighth most admired living human in the U.S. repeatedly refer to the president as a “man-child?” Say it with me: no.

    Other than racism, what’s the common thread connecting all of these examples? They all began before the president was even elected, much less suffered any failures that required the so-called playing of the “race card.”

    Had the various offended parties actually read more than just the one paragraph, they’d also have read the paragraph that immediately followed it in which the president cautions progressives to not conflate every criticism with racism. But in the digital media age it’s easier to kneejerk into a sweet, sweet outrage coma than to actually, you know, read thoroughly. It’s easy to scold the president for playing the “race card” (as if racial identity is a game) than to recognize that even if you don’t like his politics or policies, this president has been eminently thoughtful, fair-minded and reasonable. And especially in comparison to his predecessor, he’s hasn’t been afraid to admit mistakes and accept blame where blame is due.

    Now, to be clear, I’m not suggesting that all Republicans or all conservatives hate the president because he’s African-American, nor do I think they’re all racists. It’d be totally be dishonest to make such a sweeping generalization. But there’s more than enough evidence to prove that among opponents of the president, there’s a faction that dislikes and distrusts the president because he’s not white. Confirming such a reality isn’t about excuse-making, it’s about observable, objective fact.

    1. Nonsense, not everyone who disagrees with Obama is a racist.
      I have been attacking Obama on my blog www.viewfromjerusalem since before he came to office. However, as you know he is only half black, I, of course, am just attacking his white side.
