An editorial for the Kansas City Star wrote those words. These people will do anything to get Obama in the White House including calling John McCain, Sarah Palin, Republicans, and Conservatives, Racists.
The race card is officially in play, even though it all started last year when Obama basically said if he didn’t win, it was because he was black. This is sickening.
Here is the article from the Kansas City Star:
The “socialist” label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality.
Those freedom fighters included the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who led the Civil Rights Movement; W.E.B. Du Bois, who in 1909 helped found the NAACP which is still the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization; Paul Robeson, a famous singer, actor and political activist who in the 1930s became involved in national and international movements for better labor relations, peace and racial justice; and A. Philip Randolph, who founded and was the longtime head of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters and a leading advocate for civil rights for African Americans.
McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare.
Shame on McCain and Palin.
Sorry, but Obama brought this upon himself, when last week he talked about “income redistribution”. UHHH…last time I checked, “income redistribution” is a CODE WORD for “socialism”. Not “black” as this moron from the KC Star says.
I could care less if Obama was green, yellow, blue, black OR white…I’m not voting for him and I don’t agree with him at all on a multitude of issues, if not all of them. Reason being: Obama’s policies..not the COLOR of his skin.
