And “Negroes” is not the word it uses, either
We reported previously that–at least until it became an Internet-wide scandal at IsraPundit, Atlas Shrugs, and other sites–Barack Obama’s official campaign site sanctioned and tolerated a posting that said “Kike Filth are trying to steal the election.” A comment at IsraPundit asked whether “kike” is as offensive as “nigger,” and the answer is yes; it is an anti-Semitic epithet for a Jew. It is not surprising, however, that Barack Obama’s official campaign sanctioned the application of “kike” to Jews because it also sanctioned the application of “House Niggers” to Hillary Clinton’s African-American supporters and a racial slur to Clinton herself. This is, of course, from the people who now want “party unity.”
A disclaimer at the bottom of each page at My.BarackObama.com says, “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.” This disclaimer is meaningless because, as shown below, the campaign exercises complete editorial control over My.BarackObama.com by deleting “offensive” and “disrespectful” content, and disabling accounts of people who post material that is critical of Obama. The moderators certainly have every right in the world to do the latter, but the fact that they allow language like “kike,” “nigger,” “Miss Ann,” and “honky” to stand says everything that voters need to know.
The following entry, which we encourage our readers to download, copy, and circulate as widely as possible, does not refer to Hillary Clinton explicitly but the connection is obvious. Barack Obama’s Black supporters are “field hands” who want freedom, while Hillary Clinton’s Black supporters are “house niggers” who are comfortable as slaves in the house of the master (Bill) and mistress (Hillary), also known as “Miss Ann” (see below).
There is an excellent parody of a dual viewpoint of the perspective of descendents of Africans, on another group blog. it is of supposed black slaves, speaking in the language (Pidgin as it may be) of the antebellum period and further – unfortunately. to sum it up for those of you not on that group list, it tells of a Field Nigger grateful for Obama’s leading people out of bondage. And the other ‘voice’ was that of a House Nigger, who didn’t want to leave the friendly confines of the Big House for some unknown place. Granted, some will see it as a mockery. But those with wider scope will indeed see it as a commentary on the fear of the supposed unknown that some say we may be heading into if we choose Barack Obama as our next president. Some people do not even like the fact that he is running! Something I find incredulous.
Another entry at My.BarackObama.com, which has been online since April 8, refers to Hillary Clinton as “Miss Ann”–a derogatory slur for a white woman.
Could it be that because he [Bill Richardson] is Latino he is viewed as one who should have been grateful to Bill Clinton for “giving him an opportunity” not ordinarily afforded people of his race? Is it because Carville (and perhaps the Clintons’ as well) see him as one step removed from being black? Does Carville wonder “Who does he think he is?” which is a way of saying Richardson doesn’t have the right to turn on Miss Ann (Hillary)?
“Miss Ann” is not the only racial pejorative for white people that is welcome at My.Barackobama.com. The following, which uses the epithet “honky,” has been online since February 2007.

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.
Guys were wasted in ‘Nam. Guys were wasted in Iraq. Slaughtered on some gawd-awful desert for WHAT? If that’s NOT the MOST despicable way to honor our military, I don’t know what is. You tell me, soldier.
Again, there is no doubt that the Obama campaign exercises editorial control over this site. We received–within five minutes of each other–the following E-mails from an administrator when we posted material that was critical of Barack Obama. The material consisted primarily of quotes from Obama’s “Dreams From My Father,” his wife’s thesis, and so on–obviously hostile material, but with no verbally abusive content whatsoever.

Thank you for your involvement on My.BarackObama and the countless hours you have dedicated to this campaign. Unfortunately, we were forced to deactivate your account after you abused our blog tool. We regret having had to resort to this action.
Thank you for your understanding.

Right: quotes, with page references from “Dreams From My Father” are “disrespectful” to other My.Barackobama.com but “house nigger,” “kike filth,” “honky,” and “Miss Ann” are acceptable forms of discourse at this site, along with application of “bitch” to Hillary Clinton.
Needless to say, the Obama campaign had every right to keep our anti-Obama material off its site but, upon exercising the right to do so (and ours is hardly the only material that was removed), it also assumes the obligation to keep material like “nigger,” “kike filth,” “honky,” “Miss Ann,” “Hillary Clinton is a bitch,” and other forms of racist, misogynist, and anti-Semitic hate speech off its site. The fact that Obama’s official campaign sanctions this material, at least until it becomes an Internet-wide embarrassment whereupon it gets thrown under the bus, speaks for itself–especially in conjunction with Obama’s enablement and empowerment of racists, anti-Semites, and/or Catholic-hating bigots like Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Michael Pfleger, Louis Farrakhan, and MoveOn.org.
