Obama Campaign Sanctions Racist Hate Speech
Contrary to the disclaimer “Content on blogs in My.BarackObama represents the opinions of community members and in no way should be interpreted as endorsed or approved by the campaign,” the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over the site by routinely deleting entries and comments it finds “objectionable” or “disrespectful.” The racist pejorative “honky” is apparently not objectionable or disrespectful, like Michael Pfleger’s “There were a whole lot of white people crying.”

Illinois Senator Barack Obama, candidate for the Democratic nomination for president, screwed-up in a stump speech today when he said American soldiers who died in Iraq “wasted” their lives. This is his quote: “We ended up launching a war that should have never been authorized and should have never been waged and to which we have now spent $400 billion and has seen over 3,000 lives of the bravest young Americans wasted.”
No, Dave, he didn’t fcuk up. He told the TRUTH about a failed American foreign policy, FORETOLD by how many pre-invasion intel reports and analysis? The real criminal who fcuk up is a honky named George. He’s the guy who ‘wasted’ lives.
Imagine what people would say, and rightly so, if someone applied the N word to a Black politician they disliked. Barack Obama’s official campaign, however, sanctions corresponding racist hate speech at a site over which it exercises editorial control and supervision.
