So my mom has the best question and I thought I would pose it to you guys...Help me out here...

Why is it that the MSM won't touch Obama with a ten foot pole? I mean all the things he is into--from his cousin in Kenya to his non experience..

I used to think it was race, people don't want to look racist--but look at what they did to Jackson, Sharpton and Keyes..

My mom has been alive for like 12 Presidents and she is like I have never seen anything like it---they hound every President..

Be honest you guys--why do you think Obama is so different? It makes our stomach turn...But I wanna hear why you guys thing it is.

He's a Marxist just steps away from power. It's as simple as that. For that they can ignore his racism, inexperience, and association with terrorists.
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 9:23:44 PM EST
I would imagine that it boils down to the MSM not wanting to be called racists. And it would happen if they criticized him even in the slightest. My own mother (very Liberal) even called me a racists after bashing the hell out of Obama's policies/inexperience/etc. My own mother! She knows damn well that I am about as far from a racists as they come, too.

I think its just something that has been beat into the heads of so many people over the years. Throw in some white guilt and a touch of being the first possible black president and you have what you see in front of you.

Yes.

While most people will focus on his race - the OP was correct to point out that the media has not always been so kind to Sharpton, Keyes, Jackson, etc.

The simple truth is - he is a big city liberal, with a big city education. He is ONE OF THEM. They TRUST him and RELATE to him, because he is of the exact same social demographic and political bias / opinions.

90% or more of the media fits into a very narrow profile of opinion and socio-economic group. That same profile is where Obama fits.

It's really that simple. It has little or nothing to do with race.

I don't know if I believe the whole white guilt thing anymore...No one had white guilt with the other black candidates...(even though Obama is not black--but I digress)...

Think logically. It has less to do with race, and more to do with politics. He's significantly further to the left than Hillary. Doesn't that say something??? A couple years ago we were talking about Hillary like she was the furthest left socialist that could possibly be elected. Obama has changed all that, for the worse.

Well race does play a part. Not that they don't criticize him because he's black and afraid of being called racist, but they are using it to make this out to be something special, something historic and important. It is a world championship case of Affirmative action.
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 10:05:36 PM EST


Frankly it seems that the MSM does its best to choose candidates for us in the first place. Sometimes there is some confusion as to who to glom onto in the beginning, but after a while it becomes clear and then it is all down hill from there. Since Obama is the one that the MSM has chosen to glom on to they are not going to report anything negative about him.

He could be caught fucking puppies to death and smoking crack with a midget hooker at the Watergate and it would not get airtime. Just like the fact that Kerry threw some other assholes medals over the fence and not his, just like Gore giving Occidental Oil special treatment when he was VP.

Of course when the truth comes out it is through an alternative source, and the last time 'round it was the Swiftboat Vets. I think that Obama was chosen because he is virtually "Swiftboat-proof" because you can't criticize him without the race card getting thrown.

Hillary gives me the Chills, Kerry was a liar and too slick.

Obama?

The boy is a tool of Satan.

And as a borderline agnostic I don't go there often, but I have seen true "Evil".
This asshole represents and is everything that can be called "Evil".

Redisposition of assets from those who struggle to do better on a global scale, open opposition to the conflict between our nation and those who would slowly kill our loved ones for sport(And frequently do and then flaunt it on video) , and a Marxist background.


I cling to my religion because of hope.
I cling to my rifle because of faith in my fellow Americans to do the same.

This fucker wants me to give up both, and then accept my taxes going to assholes in Africa that have killed my own family.

Yet the bastard has never served a day in his life under Oath, nor ever worked an honest hour as labor.

He accepts the UN as a ruling body.
I do NOT!!!

He is not a unique and individual renegade, unafraid of challenging the norms that need to be corrected.
He is a Manipulator of the perceived wrongs that are easily utilized for his own gain.

Yeah, he's a Black dude.
So what.

The fucker is Evil incarnate, and even the Black religious folks I work with have pointed it out to this "Red" Man.

Link Posted: 7/18/2008 10:14:09 PM EST
I honestly think the MSM is hyping him..All the black people I know hate him...

The media is making it like he is the end all to be all...Again when Sharpton and Jackson ran for President no one gave a shit about race then...So why Obama??

There is something dirty going on...I mean you mean to tell me there are no more racist people in the world? That there is not one Klan member that doesn't like him? Where the hell are all of them?

I might have to be an honorary member of the Klan or something--because I cant stand him and have already been labeled a racist..

Now look--I am a black female (Duh) and I think it would be awesome to have a black American in the White House (even though Obama is African) but at what friggin cost? I mean there are some really intelligent black folk out here--and the best the Dems could come up with--is Obama? I mean you have Powell, and Rice, and so many others..Obama is a quasi black guy who has no experience and is a big pile of poop..This is what they are giving us to swallow???

There is something more to this then meets the eye...Take a look at his family--and tell me that this is a man who doesn't deserve scrutiny by the media. This shit is going to come to a head--and it is not going to be cute..

When the SHTF (and it is gonna if he gets in) I will have very little sympathy because this is exactly what this country is asking for--a shit storm...
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 10:25:49 PM EST
I guess I don't know any black conservatives, because the black people I talk to seem to like him. And the one Obama rally I went to was about 95% black and everyone seemed to be pretty pro-Obama. lol

Seriously though, I saw a CBS poll from June and among blacks, Obama was leading over McCain something like 89% to 3%.

Because they want a left wing agenda enacted. Simple as that.

Another reason they were goo goo about McCain up until he was running as the R candidate.

Ask yourself why did the media support Obama over Hillary. They always support the more left wing. Who was more left wing?



Race has NOTHING to do with it. Look what they did to Thomas and Rice.
Link Posted: 7/18/2008 10:32:31 PM EST
The MSM is obviously protecting him. No one had heard of him before last year, and everyone was certain that Hillary would be the next president. Somewhere along the way, they decided that he was their marxist messiah, and they turned their backs on Hillary. I don't think race is the main issue, but it might play a role.

I wish we had Alan Keyes as the Republican nominee. I wouldn't have a second thought about voting for him. However, I'm still trying to convince myself to vote for McCain

I don't understand his appeal at all. To me, he is a dime a dozen hope-hustler to the masses, and a puppet to rich, powerful Democrats. Remember Senator Biden said he was "clean and articulate"? The thing that can happen with the media is that they can pump someone up like a balloon, but deflate them even faster!

Youth of JFK, race, of MLK. None of the experience.

The MSM is far too inexpeirenced. The Cold War media had direct experience with WWII. Until the end of the Cold War, this was present. But since 1991, the threat has been eliminated. Until 2001. But Barak wants to relegate that to a game of checkers. Right.

For starters, the MSM is entirely liberal and Obama's essentially the liberal messiah: multicultural, a member of the oppressed minority (but not too oppressed), hardcore socialist, Utopian view of humanity, modern, hip, youthful...

Jackson, Keyes, and Sharpton all lacked in these departments. Jackson isn't very multicultural, is stuck in the 1960s civil rights movement, and is an anti-semite. Keyes is black but conservative, hardly a liberal messiah there since blacks aren't supposed to be conservative (according to the MSM). Sharpton is completely unicultural (black ghetto culture), uber oppressed, harbors blatantly paranoid views about whites, and is incredibly anachronistic to boot.

Add in the worn out welcome of the Clintons, liberal white guilt, fear of the "That's racist!" .gif, and Bush Derangement Syndrome and you have a nice thick coating of Teflon on Obama.

Black communitarian who, with no negative history to speak of in politics, attracts the Opray Winfrey viewer and feels their pain. Preaching how he will deliver everybody to the promised land.
