We previously reported how Barack Obama stood arm in arm with the prominent racist and anti-Semite Al Sharpton at a meeting of Sharpton’s hate organization, the National Action Network. We would like to share the “response” we received from the Obama campaign regarding our complaints about his open association with a prominent hatemonger and a hate group that has been directly involved in at least one fatal incident of racist and anti-Semitic violence (the arson of Freddy’s Fashion Mart).
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Senator Barack Obama and his candidacy for President. Senator Obama welcomes an open dialogue about America’s future, and hopes for the widest possible participation in a great nationwide discussion.
Hearing and exploring different positions and ways of thinking furthers this discussion. It challenges our reasoning, sharpens our analysis of issues, and leads to new solutions. We appreciate having the benefit of your perspective.
One of Senator Obama’s mentors was the late Senator Paul Simon, a man of great ability and integrity. He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.
Thank you again for contacting Senator Obama.
“He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.” We don’t think Obama has gotten off to a very good start, since he doubtlessly knew how offensive the following image would be to white people (especially Jews) and also to every single decent Afro-American. The way Al Sharpton’s tongue is hanging out, he must be fantasizing about something like burning a store that is owned by a Caucasian (preferably a Jew, e.g. Freddy’s Fashion Mart) or reenacting the Night of the Broken Glass in a place like Crown Heights.
Why should this image offend decent Afro-Americans, even though Sharpton rarely directs hate speech against members of his own race? (“Never” is not accurate, since Sharpton called fellow African-American David Dinkins a “Negro whore turning tricks in City Hall,” and “Negro” was not exactly the word he used.) Racist demagogues appeal universally to the absolute dregs of their respective socities. By standing arm in arm with Al Sharpton, Barack Obama (and Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, who also accepted his hate group’s invitation) are effectively equating Black voters to the class of white people whose votes the Klan’s David Duke or the White Aryan Resistance’s Tom Metzger can deliver: the class commonly known as “white trash.” The only Black people whose votes Sharpton can deliver are the kind who, if they were white, would be wearing sheets and hoods while firebombing Black churches, murdering civil rights workers, and lynching Negroes.
Characterization of the National Action Network as a hate group is no exaggeration, noting its conduct at Freddy’s Fashion Mart. If the races of the participants were reversed, one would have a gang of Klansmen marching around a Black-owned business while calling a white security guard a “Negro lover” (“Negro” is not exactly the word they use), screaming about “Black interlopers” and “Negroes” (again, not the exact word), threatening to burn the building, and then having one of their participants follow through on the threat.
Here is the latest beauty from Al Sharpton: a YouTube video in which he says,
So are they going to keep Jewing numbers up and down until they can try to get two guys because they wanted school [unintelligible] they can do it…
“To Jew someone down” is a highly offensive anti-Semitic slur, which Jews like as much as Romany appreciate the phrase “gyp someone,” or as much as people from Wales like the term “welsh on a bet.” Nonetheless, Barack Obama’s people claim,
He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own.
Then we and the Obama campaign must agree to disagree on this issue, because we find being called a “cracker,” “white interloper,” “bloodsucking Jew,” and “diamond merchant” by the individual with whom Obama seems to be having such a good time highly disagreeable, and the same applies to Obama’s association with an individual who talks about “Jewing numbers up and down.”
Sharpton: “White folks was in caves while we was building empires … We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”
After weeks of increasingly violent rhetoric, one of the protesters, Roland Smith, took Mr. Sharpton’s words about ousting the “white interloper” to heart. He ran into the store shouting, “It’s on!” He shot and wounded three whites and a Pakistani, whom he apparently mistook for a Jew. Then he set the fire, which killed five Hispanics, one Guyanese and one African-American–a security guard whom protesters had taunted as a “cracker lover.” Smith then fatally shot himself.
Barack Hussein, how does your friend’s commentary on “white folks in caves” and “Greek homos” tie in with “He believed that people could disagree without being disagreeable, and Senator Obama has taken that guiding principle as his own?”
