Normally, I wouldn't make any note of insults published on small, little-known sites. But in this case, the insults speak to a larger issue: The inability of Obots to admit that they were bamboozled back in 2008. They still rely on the "racism" canard to cover their own hideous lack of judgment.
Case in point: This response
to my twice-printed Grinch parody, "The Bro," which includes this verse:
He said “Vote for me!”
“Why?” they asked. “Why?”
“Because I am green and green people can’t lie!”
Then I don’t even know where to start with you. How about: Blaming a black man for white people’s magical negro complex is racist?—No, wait, it’s even simpler than that: Blaming a black man for anything white people do is racist.
I don’t recall Obama ever claiming that black people can’t lie, or that a vote for him would fix U.S. race relations and “get rid of your guilt.” Sure heard a fuckload of white people claiming it, though!
You don't recall? I sure do.
Well, let's be accurate: I don't recall Obama himself
actually using those or similar words. But his campaign
relied on "racist baiting" incessantly.
I'll be damned if I let any politician, of any party, get away with the smarmy trick of letting the candidate stay unsullied by dirty deeds accomplished in his name by hired sharks.
Bush tried to dissociate himself from the ghastly tactics used by his hirelings against McCain in 2000. I say that Bush owns
all the filthy, underhanded deeds peformed in his name and to his benefit in 1999 and 2000. Similarly, Obama owns
all the filthy, underhanded deeds performed in his name and to his benefit in 2008.
"Ax" was Obama's pit bull. You can't tell your pit bull to bite someone and then say: "Blame the dog; don't blame me."
It is now established beyond rational dispute that the Obama campaign ran the incessant, daily, hourly blogosphere attacks on Clinton and Edwards supporters. We were called "racist" literally every minute of every day, simply because we had announced a preference for another candidate. This smear campaign was designed to give the impression that anyone who opposed Obama could have no motive other than bigotry.
In other words, the Obama campaign used classic intimidation tactics.
If not for blatant racial appeals -- appeals to both black solidarity and liberal guilt -- Obama would have had to drop out of the race early on. Hillary was running well ahead in the black community. That situation changed only after the Obama campaign launched a scurrilous smear campaign designed to paint the Clintons as racists. A leaked internal Obama campaign memo revealed that the "Clintons as racists" meme was a disingenuous ploy.
If Obama were white, his "I barely knew Tony Rezko lie" -- exposed by an FBI informant in Rezko's office -- would have knocked him clean out of the race. Same thing with his outrageous NAFTA lies
Remember the Obama campaign's "darkened video" smear, which was debunked
by yours truly?
Remember the "Bros not Hos" t-shirts sold at pro-Obama events? People who didn't complain about those shirts now pretend to be shocked at my use of the term "Bro" in the Grinch parody. To which I say: Fuck you and your double standards
. If you said nothing about "Bros not Hos" -- on the record, at the time
-- then shut the fuck up about my "Bro" cartoon.
Remember the death threats? Remember the nonstop application of the term "cunt" to all Hillary supporters? Odd thing -- my critics pretend to be offended by my Grinch parody, but they did not register any complaints when the O team called Hillary a "cunt" repeatedly
. Neither did they complain about the popular "Sarah Palin is a cunt" t-shirts seen frequently at Obama events.
(I've recently learned that political campaigns now purchase blogland astroturfing via employment sites such as oDesk. The pay is crap; most of the paid blog commenters are actually third worlders. Yes, Americans are even outsourcing their invective and political dirty tricks!)
Remember the Democratic Underground poll in which 95% of the respondents said -- insanely -- that Hillary Clinton was responsible for the death of Benazir Bhutto?
Remember this cavalcade of shit
Remember Sirota's lies
Remember the calls for Hillary Clinton's murder
One could go on and on. Simply go to the pull-down menu to your right (the one marked "All old posts") and call up the archives from the 2008 campaign. Go through that old material and the point will be established beyond intelligent debate: Of course
the Obama campaign resorted to racial appeals. For precisely that reason, this former Obama voter switched his loyalties and became an implacable foe.
I received incessant accusations of "racism," along with other smears, insults and death threats
. These attempts at intimidation came not just every day but every hour. Literally. A surprising number of the most vicious, violent attacks came from the same IP number in Chicago -- the city where Obama placed his campaign HQ.
I was hardly alone. Every anti-Obama left-leaning blog came under fire.
Don't be naive: Of course
Axelrod was personally responsible. And of course Obama was responsible for Axelrod.
By the way: Bill Clinton took a lot of heat for his efforts on behalf of black people -- ending redlining and encouraging investment. Now, nearly two years into the Obama presidency, I'd like to ask (not for the first time) if Obama has ever done anything for any black person not named Obama.
