When Democrat Barney Frank started taking some heat (though not nearly enough yet) for being one of the prime enablers of the mortgage crisis by sinking any regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and by pushing banks to eliminate loan standards in order to increase home ownership, Mr. Frank found the true culprits. It isn't Barney Frank, oh no. Even though his efforts may well sink the entire world economy, Barney Frank still won't admit to any blame. Instead, he pins blame on his favorite whipping boys, those racist Republicans. Quoting Mr. Frank at a mortgage foreclosure symposium in Boston:
“They get to take things out on poor people. Let’s be honest. The fact that some of the poor people are black doesn’t hurt them either, from their standpoint. This is an effort, I believe, to appeal to a kind of anger in people."
Even with our banks falling over like dominoes and the stock market dropping like a rock, the lying moron Barney Frank plays racial politics to cover his own malfeasance. Un-believable. We will NEVER get sound fiscal policy with disgusting pigs like Barney Frank as our congressional leaders.
ACORN (Association of Community Organizers For Reform Now) is being investigated in a dozen states for voter fraud, including all the key battleground states. ACORN has a long history of facilitating voter fraud. ACORN is recruiting for Barack Obama. ACORN was also involved in pressuring banks to eliminate their loan standards to increase low-income home ownership, which has led directly to the mortgage crisis. Barack Obama has funnelled $800,000 to ACORN, and the Democrats tried to push 20% of the $700 billion financial bailout package to ACORN. Thankfully they failed with that twisted effort.
Have ACORN or the Democrats done anything wrong ? Nope, not according to the Democrats or ACORN. Instead, it's the fault of, guess who, those racist Republicans, who the Dems claim are just trying to keep minorities from voting. Absolute bullcrap.
When Sarah Palin brought up Barack Obama's connection to domestic terrorist William Ayers on the campaign trail, a relationship that Obama has been consistently deceptive about, Democrats jumped in and accused Palin of racism. Here are the "offending" words from Palin:
“Our opponent is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country. This is not a man who sees America like you and I see America. We see America as a force of good in this world. We see an America of exceptionalism.”
Now, I don't see anything even remotely racist there, but Democrats use any chance to find that secret double-blind hidden GOP racist subtext.
“They are trying to throw out these codes,” said Representative Gregory Meeks, a Democrat from New York. “He’s ‘not one of us?’” That’s racial. That’s fear. They know they can’t win on the issues, so the last resort they have is race and fear.”
“Racism is alive and well in this country, and McCain and Palin are trying to appeal to that and it’s unfortunate,” said Representative Ed Towns, also a Democrat from New York.
I don't know why Ed Towns included John McCain in his accusations. Maybe it was because McCain pointed to Obama during the debate and called him "that one." Democrats saw racism in that too.
FYI - Meeks is also one of the Democrats who called it racist when the GOP, including John McCain, tried to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2005. How'd that work out, Mr. Meeks ? Meeks even called the Fannie and Freddie regulators racist for trying to impose any semblance of fiscal sanity upon Fannie and Freddie.
Barack Obama has played the race card several times, first against the Clintons in the primaries, and in the general election he keeps saying things like, ""they [GOP] are going to tell you...he [Obama] doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills." OF course, the Republicans have never said any such thing.
The Democrats and the Obama campaign have been so darned sure that the Republicans were going to use racist tactics against Obama that they are tilting at windlmills. Their paranoia has gotten the better of them. NOBODY on the Republican side is referring to race AT ALL, because it's a non-issue. It's a figment of fevered Democratic imaginations.
I have a suggestion, Dems. Grow up, and knock it off. The only side that ever brings up race is YOUR side. Therefore, I conclude that it must be the Democrats who are obsessed with it, not the GOP.
And I'm not bitterly clinging to my guns or my religion, nor do I mistrust people who don't look like me.
