This is the explosive "bombshell" that radio asshole Sean Hannity promised to view on his show. This is what the gay ass kisser Matt Drudge splashed on his website. This is what dick smoker Tucker Carlson promised to push upon the mainstream masses. A five year old doctored/or edited video in which then Senator Barack Obama, the presidential candidate was telling a black audience of the horrors of the American government failing those people in New Orleans during the tragic Hurricane Katrina.
Five years ago they could have released this! But now, they're desperate and they'll throw the kitchen sink at the president. So what are these fools going to do?
Play the race card!
Do you actually think this stuff is going to work?
I mean how far will these people go before they've realized that this stuff isn't working!
The video in question has Barack Obama at Hampton University talking about issues that focused on the rebuilding of New Orleans. The right wing is bringing back their old nemesis Jeremiah Wright.
The president severed ties with the controversial former pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ of Chicago, after numerous videos went viral in which Wright criticized American foreign policy and its race relations.
In a video mentioned exclusively five years ago by the mainstream media, but somehow this video was "exclusively" obtained by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the conservatives old nemesis Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government failed the Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.
“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”
Without playing the entire 40 minutes of his speech, similar to then president George W. Bush's 2005 address to the nation, The Daily Caller only obtained a few minutes and nothing more. They claim he's using an accent he almost never adopts in public.
This video is an attempt to make Obama look like a racist, with a zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. They're trying to claim that this is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.
Parts of the speech included (courtesy of Think Progress).
That poverty has roots in a history of racial discrimination, which cut off generations from the opportunity of America. We have a duty to confront this poverty with bold action. So let us restore all that we have cherished from yesterday and let us rise above the legacy of inequality. When the streets are rebuilt, there should be many new businesses, including minority-owned businesses, along those streets.
|So this is what you got, Tucker Carlson? Another "race" bombshell!|
This is a sure dud and no one is going to take this seriously.
Maybe those voters who weren't going to vote for Barack Obama anyways. But to an independent voter, this stuff is a distraction and it's not going to sway their votes whatsoever.
Sean Hannity, the radio/television asshole bragged about this earlier this evening on his radio program. He's claiming this could be an "OCTOBER SURPRISE" that could damage the president's rising poll numbers.
Most people in the media will probably write this off as another desperate attempt by conservatives to energized their base. The polls show that Democratic enthusiasm is up and Republican enthusiasm is down.
Mitt Romney damaged himself with the 47% comments in a hidden camera video. The Republicans are trying to regain control of the message. So instead of focusing on the number one issue, the economy, they're focused on the Libyan embassy attacks, the Jay-Z fundraiser, David Letterman, The View and other issues.
UPDATE: On CBS This Morning, when asked about this video, Obama campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs shot back at Sean Hannity, CBS reporter Jan Crawford for deliberately trying to change the subject with a five year old video instead of worrying about the president's policies and of course the infamous Mitt Romney's 47% comments.
So instead of getting mad at Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, Fox News, Tucker Carlson and The Daily Caller, here's what you should do!
Don't let these race-baiting fools stop the president. It's essential that you vote and vote early. That's a big weakness to Mitt Romney's campaign.
We already know that President Barack Obama's is likely to win, but will these utter distractions hurt his chances with White voters?
Conservatives aren't going to vote for him anyways! They already believe the first African American president is a racist. That's fine and dandy. Just ignore them and vote!
