It’s Not Racism to Oppose Obama

Here’s how to explain in one sentence why it is not racist to oppose and even despise Barack Obama. To paraphrase Martin Luther King, “My problem is not with the color of Barack Obama’s skin, but with the content of his character.”

Or, in less delicate terms, “My problem with a stinking sack of fertilizer is not with the sack’s color, but with its contents.” Imagine a sack (white, black, or in between) around which a huge swarm of flies is buzzing eagerly. You probably don’t need to stick your nose in the sack, much less open it, to deduce that you want nothing to do with its contents. Here are but a few specimens of the “flies” that swarm around Barack Obama, often with his encouragement:

  • Bill Ayers, self-admitted domestic terrorist (“Guilty as hell, free as a bird”) and Bernadine Dohrn
  • Louis Farrakhan (Obama refused to “reject” his endorsement until Hillary Clinton and Tim Russert backed him into a corner)
  • Rahid Khalidi, advisor to the Palestine Liberation Organization
  • Michael “There were a whole lot of white people crying” Pfleger
  • Edward Said (virulent anti-Israel professor at Columbia)
  • Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (Google on “Freddy’s Fashion Mart”)
  • The Trinity United Church of Christ, which applauded “There were a whole lot of white people crying.”
  • Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright

    As opposed to the “flies” that swarm around his opposition? I agree it’s not racist to oppose him, but in the face of the alternatives it isn’t awfully bright.
