    Racism Still Fuels Many Who Profess We Want Our Country Back

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, much ink and breath were spent talking about race. Most of it, after the nomination of Barack Obama, was positive, marking the historical significance of a black nominee and exploring the possibilities of a post-racial country.

    There were still members of the right-wing fringe who said they would never vote for a black man. But most Republicans who, in the past, never hesitated to use race as an election edge held their tongues from overtly attacking Obama for his race.

    But it didnt take long for racial animosity to rear its ugly head.

    To be sure, Bill Clinton faced lynch mobs on the right at every move. But he didnt face crowds that said things like, We want our country back.

    Conservatives would say this is a reaction to Obamas perceived liberalism, but look at what the president is doing. He seeks to make nice with Republicans and still believes in bipartisan problem solving. There is no liberal revolution going on. The deadheads who populate the tea baggers want their country returned to white conservatives.

    A woman called the office last week upset about a pro-Obama editorial. "Im tired of all that black stuff," she huffed.

    Not just Obama, she added, but pictures of blacks, presumably of her fellow community members. She hastened to point out that she had nothing against black people, to which I responded that it sure seemed like she did.

    Take the case of Van Jones, a black man who just lost his Obama administration job because he had some choice derogatory names aimed at Republicans and lent his name to a Web site that seeks an investigation of the Bush administrations possible role in the Sept. 11 attacks.

    I can remember when a repugnant representative from Indiana, Dan Burton, called Clinton a scumbag. Burton, who is white, keeps getting elected.

    Now conservatives are going after Mark Lloyd, a staffer at the Federal Communications Commission who is critical of corporate-owned media and right-wing dominance of talk radio. Rush Limbaugh thunders into his microphone that Lloyd will bring back the Fairness Doctrine (which would be a great idea since the public owns the airwaves), but Lloyd has no policy power. He is black, though.

    Still on the fringes, and drawing fuel from Congressional Republicans, are the birthers who think Obama was born in Kenya. This, too, is an example of racism.

    Someone needs to turn around the words of Rep. Joe Wilson, point them at conservatives who say race has nothing to do with their hate-filled barrages, and say, You lie.

    I hope it is true. I hope real ethnic Americans take back our nation and restore authentic American culture. However, I suspect this is just another ploy to get Americans feeling guilty for their "racist" past.

    To call critics 'racist' is just the same as jews call critics 'anti-semite',

    people are getting tired of that nonsense. Liberals don't want to see that people are angry at their agenda. We don't want communism nor do we want blacks to be allowed any crime without retribution.

    The media is government propaganda. They are losing their reputation fast. McClusky, the 3rd biggest Newspaper group in the USA had their stocks fallen to 2 Dollar from more than 40 Dollar. People don't read their liberal crap anymore.

    If you turn on the TV it is painful to listen to all their lies. People wake up, slowly but continually. Whether it is fast enough I don't know. but once they are awakened, their is no way back.

    The lies in the massmedia get bigger and outrageous by the day, they are losing and they just try harder to lie. They don't see themselves, they lost contact to the common people.

    liberals usually grow up in a liberal household, have liberal teachers, go to liberal universities, looking for liberal carreers, have liberal colleagues marry a liberal and so on. I guess you get the picture.

    They never look a beggar child in the eye, They never see a war veteran nor talk to them, they don't go to a construction workers breakfast, they never talk to a worker who lost his job to a 'affirmative action' negro, They don't talk to a person who lost his house, his job and his marriage.

    all they can see is their 'brave new world' which is when you look closer just a pathetic peace of sh.......

    They want to stay in their phantasy home at cloud 43. As Pelosi said: it's just the mob.

    For them critic on their beautiful phantasy is therefore evil, and evil for them is 'racist'. That is obviously the biggest evil they can think of. what they don't realize is, that most white people are racist now, they may be afraid to say so and keep it for themselves but they are.

    Liberals will face a desaster at the next election day. Slowly it enters their mind, but they can't find the right answer. So they fight 'racism' more and harder. Guess what happens if you start to fight the people whose votes you want?

    Yes, the revolution grows.
