Alcee Hastings (D-FL) Uses Race Card On Jewish Group

Are you beginning to see that the antics of the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor for over 20 years, is not so much of an isolated incident as Democrats would have you believe? On Wednesday, speaking to the National Jewish Democratic Council, a group that applied pressure to disinvite Gov. Palin from an anti-Iran rally in New York, the Democratic congressman said . . .

‘anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.’

And he follows it up with this statement . . .

‘If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention.’

He will be criticized, of course, for his racist and bigoted comments. But it is obvious that what we are seeing is Hastings simply following the lead of his candidate who said to a democrat audience, without any substantiation, predicting that John McCain and his Republican allies will try to scare them.

“Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” Obama said. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, you know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

Then there’s this quote which I heard him say, ‘And oh, did I mention, he’s Black?’ Do you think that the Obama campaign can win an election by using such despicable tactics? Apparently, they think that they can.

  1. For Obama and Hastings, it is unfounded. That’s why the words they are using are in a future tense, what Republicans will do or what Bush and McCain will say. That is instilling fear.

    Now, 527’s say all sorts of things from both political ends of the spectrum.

    But 527’s are not what Obama and Hastings are talking about. They are talking about (R)epublicans and Sarah Palin and Bush. Had they, or any elected official in Washington actually said the blather they are being accused of, I’d imagine we would know their names by now.

    The hard reality is that it is Obama himself that is playing the race card. Hastings, Howard Dean and others are just following his lead. It’s right there on page 2 of their playbook. 🙂

  2. That’s what the McCain campaign is based on. Fear. It’s not unfounded at all. The McCain camp has run ads that subliminally paint Obama as a “dangerous black man”. They’ve made tons of such comments publicly.
