Our Racist Administration

With AG Holders admission that the new black panthers are "his people" that will not be prosecuted for voter intimidation and Obama once again playing the race card on the tea party, can there be any doubt that it is true?

Obama is exacerbating the race issue, trying to use race to benefit himself and his agenda.

not a plastic bag
Just to clarify because I assume a lot of people missed it:

But Obama, in his most candid moments, acknowledged that race was still a problem. In May 2010, he told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent "Tea Party" movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn't helping them nearly enough, he said.


A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to "take back" their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn't dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a "subterranean agenda" in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.
Obama Says Race a Key Component in Tea Party Protests - US News and World Report

This is a guy that cannot fathom that he could be wrong on an issue or that others may have different opinions than his. This is a "it must be because I'm black, because there's no way I'm wrong" attitude if there's ever been one. Its disgusting.

What exactly is his agenda that he's trying to use race to benefit?
Why Jeanie, it should be obvious by now that Obama (and many in his administration) endeavor to DIVIDE Americans, by race, class, political affiliation, by any means possible, in order to agitate and exacerbate differences to his political advantage. To use this to "fundamentally change" (destroy) the United States as we know it Cloward-Piven style and rebuild it according to his own quasi-socialist authoritarian ideology.

I don't think you can deny the possibility that there are people who have joined the Tea Party movement because they don't like the fact that we have a black president. And the truth is, Obama is right, there is very little that can be done about it, so why waste time talking about it. I'm wondering if that's the reason behind his lack of response to that comment at the White House dinner.

I didn't see anything in the US News and World Report article that supports the title of the article. What stood out for me was this

His goal, he said, was to be as effective and empathetic a president as possible for all Americans. If he could accomplish that, it would advance racial progress for blacks more than anything else he could do.
What Holder actually said was this

“Think about that,” Holder fired back. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate….to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people,” said Holder, an African American.
He did not call the Black Panthers "my people".

What possible political advantage could be had by dividing Americans based on physical differences?

Oh, I forgot to add: where Obama himself and his cronies are the ultimate arbiter of right/wrong & constitutional/unconstitutional.

@ Jeanie: Oh yes I can deny the leftist smears against the tea party. Although it is impossible to prove a negative. But that smear only further proves the affirmative charge of racism against the left.

What possible advantage? One of the oldest tricks in the book: divide and conquer.

"divide and conquer"? again, to what end?

Also, the last time I checked, we still had a Supreme Court to determine what is and is not Constitutional.

While I appreciate Jeanie's quote, it should be viewed in the greater context of the discussion preceding Holder's reply:

YouTube - Atty Gen Holder: Focus On Black Panther Case Demeans "My People"

Eric Holder's People - WSJ.com

The sign says "congress = slave owner...taxpayer=niggar. Is the mere appearance of the word "niggar" proof of racism?

Is "monkey see, monkey do" racist?

Obama as the witch-doctor, my personal favorite! I lol every time I see it. A representation of what level of care the country class will receive based upon Obama's health care law which congress is exempt from and Obama's administration exempts his cronies from (ruling class elites).

Does that make me a racist in your opinion Jeanie? Since you are the one distributing these "racist" images does that make you a racist?

You haven't noticed that Obama ignores the court's determination of constitutionality? Held in contempt in the off shore drilling ban and ignores the fact that obamacare has been RULED unconstitutional, then turned around and declares by edict that the law of the land, DOMA, is unconstitutional?

Would you ignore it if future President "Conservative" issues an edict that Roe vs Wade is unconstitutional?

1. I do agree there is some degree of a racist element in the opposition to Obama. Some people just do not like the fact that he is black and hate him for it. There are racist people out there, I don't think that's a newsflash for everyone. That said, I object to the constant characterization of the Tea Party as racists and Obama playing the race card. I agree with MIT in that he has a hard time accepting that people disagree with him substantively.

2. I do believe his admininstration plays a divide and conquer game. They paint those that dissent from his agenda as racist, therefore bringing those on the fence to his side so they don't look like loons. There really aren't that many people that believe he was born in Kenya for example. Yet we hear mystical poll after mystical poll that X% of Republicans don't believe he was born in the US. This distracts from actually debating the issues and instead everyone's focus is "The Republicans are batshit crazy racists!!"

3. Even if Holder didn't specifically call the Black Panthers his people, I still object to what he said. We're not talking about a group that goes out to peacefully fight for the rights of disadvantaged people, they are a group that uses intimidation and violence.

4. I have a real problem with Obama stating he will not enforce DOMA. That's his job. His job is not to decide what is and what is not constitutional. That's the Supreme Court's job. It was an Act that was passed by Congress and to not enforce it shows his arrogance and a total disrespect for the law. I expect more from a "Constitutional professor".
