Dems Think Conservatives Are Being Racist, Again

Apparently Democrats think that race is a big reason for opposing the President Obama. The article from Politico shows that there are differing opinions coming from the Democrats. Some, like Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas) think that “most” of the extreme opposition to the President is race based. Rep. Mike Honda (D-California) thinks that “some” of it is about race. While Gwen Dawkins, a Democrat activist, thinks “all of it is!” Dawkins would like people to just “give him a chance.”

One of the main reasons cited was the “birthers” attempt to prove that President Barack Obama is not a legitimate citizen. I’ve never been one to question the Presidents citizenship, and I think it is a distraction from the real issues. I must point out that most of the “birthers” are fringe activists, that have just as much disdain for former President Bush as they do for President Obama. This is not a crowd of Conservatives and it is not a crowd of Republicans, and its not a crowd of Libertarians, they are conspiracy theorist’s. Most of them also probably think that the moon landing was fake.

The real question is whether some, most or all of the opposition to President Obama is because of his race?

I suppose the answer to that question depends on ones definition of “some.” I think that there is definitely going to be “some” people out there that object to President Omama solely based on race, but that number is very small. As far as people at the rallies go, I think that most of the people that oppose President Obama are against his policies.

They site a sign at the D.C. rally that read “He had a dream, we got a nightmare.” The sign apparently displays an image of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Obama. Is that really racist? Hardly. If it is racist, it’s one sign among thousands, that only underscores the point that most of the people are protesting policy and not race. There were signs that read “it is not a race issue.” They’re pointing out the MLK sign in an effort to prove that the Conservatives have hidden racist tendencies, but it does nothing other than prove that there are exceptions. It surely does not back up Dawkins’ claim that “all” of the opposition is based on race.

I just don’t see this issue getting anyone anywhere. And the Whitehouse evidently agrees, the article quotes the Whitehouse Press Secretary Robert Gibbs saying “I don’t think the president believes that people are upset because of the color of his skin.”
