I’ve got a great idea that will benefit everyone. It’s very simple. Stop playing the race card! It’s demeaning to everyone involved.
During the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, some liberals were telling us that people who were planning to vote for Republican John McCain or Republican Mitt Romney over Democrat Barack Obama were racists. Ordinarily, I would consider such a comment so mind-numbingly stupid that I wouldn’t waste time commenting on it. But those comments have continued well after the elections, so they should be addressed.
When I would encounter white liberals who expressed that ridiculous opinion, I would ask them a question that went something like this: “In 2016, if Condoleezza Rice were the Republican candidate for president and Hillary Clinton were the Democrat candidate for president, and you voted for Clinton, would that make you a racist? And while we’re at it, if Rice were running against a male Democrat for president, and you voted for the Democrat, would that make you both a racist and a woman hater?”
Needless to say, I never received good answers to those questions. When liberals have nothing else to fall back on, they play the race card. Now, even our president who should know better is playing the race card to justify his dismal approval ratings.
Obama recently told the New Yorker magazine, “There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.”
Yeah, that’s it. Their disappointment in you couldn’t possibly be because of the unending scandals that have occurred under your watch. They couldn’t possibly be upset with you because of the horrible healthcare legislation that you’ve shoved down their throats. They couldn’t possibly dislike you because you repeatedly ignore Congress to push your unwanted agenda on U.S. citizens. No, it must be because of your race.
Do you believe that our “Christian” President, Barack Obama made a legitimate point in that interview, or was he just fishing for an excuse to explain away his poor performance? Hope to hear from you about this.
