Karen Carter Peterson or Republican Party: the cry of Obamacare, racism
Written by 

peterson-obamacare-racistThe Louisiana Sen. Karen Carter Peterson Obamacare controversy, in which she that the opponents to Obamacare in Louisiana are motivated by race has not only made big news statewide but nationally.

 

 

The Louisiana Republican Party and Gov. Bobby Jindal, though to have had their share of difficulties these two months of the Louisiana legislative session, have seized on the opportunity created by Peterson with her statement last week in front of the Louisiana Senate.

There are many questions related to this current controversies: how will it affect the Democrats chances to regain power in an already raw-red republican state? What were some of the short-term effects? Did the Republican Party store the controversy, play the race card of its own and in doing so fan the flames of race animosities? Also, since the Republicans have been asking Mary Landrieu whether she supports the Peterson statement, what should the Louisiana Democratic senator do in light of this controversy. Landrieu has already been considered to be very vulnerable this election season. She is running for reelection next year?

Bayoubuzz.com publisher Stephen Sabludowsky, Jim Brown and Jeff Crouere discussed some of these issues and more in a recent Google hangout.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
