Flashermac Posted February 26, 2012 Report Share Posted February 26, 2012 Obama Plays Race Card, Calls on Churches to Support Campaign Imagine if Ron Paul announced a national campaign called â€˜Whites for Ron Paulâ€™ â€“ heâ€™d be vilified as a racist. And yet Barack Obama has done the equivalent of precisely that with his launch of â€˜African Americans for Obamaâ€™. The program urges black Americans to volunteer their time by making calls, organizing events and going door to door in their neighborhoods encouraging other African Americans to vote for Obama. Not only is Obama playing the race card in an attempt to pressure black Americans into voting for him, he is also violating the separation between church and state. In the video promo for the campaign, Obama urges black people to pressure churches into supporting his administration by getting his message out via â€œthe faith communityâ€. He also calls on voters to become â€œcongregation captainsâ€. Again, imagine what the reaction would be any of the Republican candidates launched a â€˜Whites for Romneyâ€™, â€˜Whites for Santorumâ€™ or â€˜Whites for Gingrichâ€™ campaign. There would be non-stop uproar. But Obama does the equivalent and gets a free pass. â€œI thought race didnâ€™t matter Mr. President?â€ asks Chad Hasty. â€œI donâ€™t think MLK would be too pleased with you at all. African-Americans for Obama? Give me a break. Under this President, more blacks are unemployed. More blacks are on food stamps. If I had to bet though, Obama will still pull 93% of the black vote. Again, just a wild guess.â€ As part of his efforts to lock down the black community as a voting bloc, Obama has arrived in Florida accompanied by an invasion of rappers and NBA basketball stars â€“ all at taxpayer expense. â€œThe group â€” which organizers said includes Magic Johnson, Alonzo Mourning and NBA Commissioner David Stern â€” will meet with President Obama for a $30,000-a-plate fundraiser at the (actual) home court of Dallas Mavericks guard Vince Carter in his Isleworth mansion,â€ reports the Orlando Sentinel. The expensive fundraising trip is timed to coincide with Sundayâ€™s 61st NBA All-Star Game at Orlandoâ€™s Amway Center. An expensive new basketball shoe launched to capitalize on the event caused mayhem at a Florida mall last night. Riot police were called after crowds attempted to rush into a branch of Foot Locker to purchase the shoe before closing time. My link Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
