Before Part II of Guns And Butter: Barack Obama’s Moral Hazard And Systemic Failure we are once again forced to comment on race and race-baiting coming from the Obama crowd.
We always try to note in our discussions of race that African-Americans were some of the most attacked yet firmest of Hillary Clinton supporters during the primaries. We make this recognition to give credit where credit is due but also to try and penetrate the thick skulls and small minds of the Obama Hopium addled addicts who are so prejudiced they think all black people think alike, act alike, talk alike, drink alike, eat alike.
We are much more sophisticated in our consideration of African-Americans and people of all races. We recognize that some African-Americans are horrible people, scoundrels, the lowest of the low – the same can be said of people from all races. We also recognize that some African-Americans are wonderful people, honorable, the best of the best – the same can be said of people from all races.
We saw and bravely said – we are not cowards – that many white people supported Barack Obama during the primaries in order to somehow feel “cool” or “non-prejudiced” or “hip” or “advanced” or somehow “better” than those that did not support Obama. These white Obama supporters, we observed, think of black people like chia pets. They pat black people, oops, African-Americans on the head and admire themselves for being so “wonderful” and cool” and “with it” and “hip”.
During the campaign Obama and his supporters race-baited constantly. Big Media not only protected Obama in his race-baiting, Big Media advanced Obama’s race-baiting. Princeton historian Sean Wilentz wrote Race Man – How Barack Obama played the race card and blamed Hillary Clinton. Sean Wilentz was one of the most respected historians by progressives until he dared tell the truth.
This website, Sean Wilentz, and Hillary supporters were smeared as racists for calling Obama out on his race-baiting. Shouting “racist” became a fun pasttime for Obama supporters during the primary and general election campaigns -and even now. Uncovering “coded racist language” became a fun pasttime for Obama supporters. The “coded” hunt became so ridiculous that discussions of Bill The Bomber Ayres was deemed “racist” even though Bill The Bomber Ayres was and is white.
Yesterday, Attorney General Eric Holder called Americans a “nation of cowards” on matters of race.
Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.
In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.
“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” said Holder, nation’s first black attorney general.
Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, Holder said, but “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”
He urged people of all races to use Black History Month as a chance for frank talk about racial matters.
“It is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nation’s history, this is in some ways understandable,” Holder said. “If we are to make progress in this area, we must feel comfortable enough with one another and tolerant enough of each other to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us.”
He told Justice Department employees they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.
Attorney General Holder is the coward – he should discuss Barack Obama’s race-baiting during the primaries and general election. Attorney General Holder is a coward – he should discuss Al Sharpton’s current race-baiting.
Attorney General Holder does not really want an honest discussion on racial matters – he wants acquiesence to his opinions. Attorney General Holder wants Americans to discuss what he wants to discuss and for us to kow tow to his opinions. We doubt Attorney General Holder wants a discussion on race-baiting politicians from Chicago.
We doubt Attorney General Holder has said anything about Senator Roland Burris and the race-baiting his supporters engaged in. We doubt Attorney General Holder, who is African-American has ever discussed race-baiting by African-Americans, particularly race-baiting by African-American politicians and their supporters.
If Attorney General Eric Holder wants to stop being a coward he can begin immediately to discuss Barack Obama’s race-baiting and Al Sharpton’s race-baiting.
If Attorney General Eric Holder wants to stop being a coward he should denounce Obama supporters like Andrew Sullivan and John Kerry (and other Dumb White People) who supported Barack Obama because he was black not, as Dr. King said, because of the content of his character.
If Attorney General Holder wants to stop being a coward he should discuss the history of race-baiting in the primaries and explain why he himself was silent. As we wrote:
Obama, yelps “racism” or “bigotry” if any one mentions his middle name. Bill Clinton was accused of being a “racist!” for calling Obama’s Iraq history a “fairy tale”. Bill Clinton was called a “racist!” for pointing out the fact that Reverend Jesse Jackson had also won the South Carolina primary. Geraldine Ferraro? “Racist!” When Republicans poked fun at Obama’s claims to being a “community organizer” Big Media and Obama types said it was a “dog whistle” and, yup, “racist”.
Attorney General Eric Holder is a coward.

Obama enabler Al Sharpton is on the attack because of a cartoon mocking the Obama “stimulus” scam. Sharpton wildly interprets the cartoon as a slur on an African-American president.
The Rev. Al Sharpton and community activists say the image lampooning President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan is racist. [snip]
The editorial cartoon in question shows a police officer shooting a chimpanzee to death while his partner says, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” [snip]
“Here, you have someone using race-tinged cartoons to racially offend the president,” The Rev. Al Sharpton said.
Sharpton said it’s worse than Don Imus’ derogatory comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team. The Post, Sharpton said, seems to play into the old stereotype of African Americans being monkeys.
“This inference is something that is divisive, something that is offensive and something that should not be quietly accepted,” Sharpton said. [snip]
Post Editor in Chief Col Allan issued a statement on Wednesday saying, “The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy.”
We do not think the cartoon has anything to do with Obama but it is ironic to hear “it’s appalling that in America someone could, you know, write something that terrible about the president and have it published” – the whole point is that this is America and we are free to criticize the president. Bush was constantly called a “chimp”, there was/is a website about Bush called “smirking chimp”, Bill Clinton was constantly insulted in lurid ways, as was Lincoln, and every other president.

During the general election campaign Obama made a remark about “lipstick on a pig”. Many, especially Obama’s audience, believed Obama was making a not very veiled attack against Governor Sarah Palin who was successful in knocking Obama off the headlines.
“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig,” Obama said, “but it’s still a pig.”
The crowd rose and applauded, some of them no doubt thinking he may have been alluding to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s ad lib during her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech last week, “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”
Obama has a history of misogyny during the campaign which Big Media protected him from. Obama and his friends like Roland Burris and Al Sharpton consistently engaged in race-baiting and have not been called on it.
Those who do not denounce race-baiting are the cowards. Those who do not denounce misogyny are cowards.
Attorney General Eric Holder is, by his own definition, a coward.
