Sebelius plays the race card

Campaigning for Obama in Iowa, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius suggested that the GOP is using race against Obama:
"Have any of you noticed that Barack Obama is part African-American?" Sebelius asked with sarcasm. "(Republicans) are not going to go lightly into the darkness."
Ed Morrissey notes that the original Associated Press article has been "corrected" to eliminate the second half of that quote. But here's the damned ironic thing: Only Democrats have made an issue of Obama's race, and they've done so relentlessly by crying "racism" any time anyone criticizes Obama. Anything any Republican says about Obama is somehow "code," a "dog whistle."

And it's worth pointing out the idiotic PC formulation of Sebelius's description. "Part African-American"? Actually, he's half-Kenyan, which is a different thing.

Sebelius raised the subject, however, as only liberals are allowed to do, because they're voting for Obama. Now, you see, "racism" has been redefined as "voting against Obama." So what Sebelius was actually telling the people in Iowa was, "Vote for Obama, or you're a racist." This, I'm sure, is the real reason why the liberals insisted on nominating Obama -- not that they actually believe he can be elected, but so that when he loses in November, they will finally have proof that America is an evil racist country.


  1. He's half- Kenyan? I also heard he's half hawaiian...
    Far be it from you to try to understand what racism is, your futile attempt to make any criticism of Obama a racial matter is as crazy as suggesting that McCain invented the Blackberry.
    I guess "Uppity" is not racially insensitive whatsoever.
    Or, or suggesting that Obama is a beneficiary of affirmative action. No racial connotations there!
    Listen, Robert, this subject is above your pay grade.
    Why even bring it up? You know that I know that you know that I know what's going on here. I'll give you that with Obama it isn't just a racial issue. He IS a Democrat, afterall. But your side is using the color of his skin against him. At least the Appalachians are bold enough to admit it.
    And I'm sure they aren't the only ones counting on the Bradley effect this November...
    C'est al vie, right?

  2. So far, the most prominent references to race in the primaries, as well as in the general election have been from the Obama campaign ... usually in terms of the Obama campaign accusing anyone, and everyone of racism, who disagreed with Obama, or challenged his lack of credentials, or his lack of experience, as racism. Obama has also vocally predicted and anticipated racism, when nobody actually said or did anything racist. Obama also used the race card against Bill Clinton. And, now democrat, and Obama supporter Kathleen Sebelius is once again using racism as an excuse, in case Obama doesn't win in November. But, what about the other side of the coin? 90% of Blacks in America are voting for Obama simply because he is black. This is racism also, but it always gets swept under the carpet.
