Obama, Biden, liberal media keep race bias in chains
Written by 

bidenDuring the 2008 presidential campaign, talk show host Bill Cunningham was accused of racism. His crime was to use the full name of Barack Hussein Obama at a campaign rally. To liberals, including Republican nominee John McCain, it was somehow racist to mention Obama’s middle name. Never mind that the President has often referred to his middle name and it was heard by millions of Americans when he took the oath of office. Incredibly, Cunningham had crossed some sort of imaginary line created by the liberal news media and Democrats who work full time to protect Barack Obama.




Now, four years later, Barack Obama is running for re-election. Once again Democrats and the liberal news media are defining what can be said about the President. It seems that Mitt Romney better not call him angry or he is engaging in racism. According to liberal talking head Toure of MSNBC, Romney promoted the “ni..erization” of Obama by calling him “angry.” Toure’s MSNBC colleague agreed and said that Romney’s comments were definitely “loaded.”

At a campaign rally in Ohio, Romney said that the President should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Romney was reacting with outrage to the comments of Vice President Joe Biden who claimed that Republicans want to put “y’all back in chains.” Biden was speaking to a predominantly African American audience in Virginia and making a strong insinuation that Republicans wanted to reinstate slavery.

Instead of blasting Biden, Toure and his MSNBC cohorts launched into a tirade against Mitt Romney for defending his campaign and his party.  According to Toure, Romney is “really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.”

Such analysis is both ridiculous and quite convenient for Democrats. It severely limits how Republicans can respond to Obama for fear of being called a racist.

Romney had every right to condemn Biden’s reprehensible rhetoric. Asserting that Republicans want to put African Americans in “chains” is divisive, hateful and angry.  The focus of outrage should rest squarely on Joe Biden’s shoulders for making another inappropriate and inaccurate remark. Sadly, most of the news media and Democrats were unconcerned by the Vice President’s heated rhetoric. Not surprisingly, these same biased arbiters of campaign conduct found Romney’s proper outrage indeed racist.

The news media is trying to dictate how Republicans campaign against Barack Obama. For example, they better not use his full name or call him angry. Clearly, they want to stifle discussion because they feel Obama needs to be protected as an African American. In fact, such a protective attitude is racist for candidates of all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds should be treated equally.

The media is so accustomed to protecting and promoting Barack Obama and the Democratic Party that they are incapable of fair and balanced coverage.

To its credit, the Romney campaign has complained to MSNBC about Toure’s unfair charges, but it will ultimately not lead to a change in coverage. MSNBC, as well as CNN and the broadcast news operations are working together to bolster the Obama campaign. They are assisted by reporters from most newspapers and news magazines who share a strong liberal outlook.

With the exception of talk radio, certain Internet sites and Fox News, the media will create one obstacle after another for Mitt Romney over the remainder of the race. This fits the media’s historical pattern of liberal activism.

If Romney is going to win the presidency, he will do it against the fervent opposition of the Obama campaign and their strongest supporters, the news media.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
