Cokie Roberts Says We Hate Obama Because He’s Black (But Then Why Do We So Despise YOU, Cokie?)

April 26, 2011

File this one under the category “Stupid liberal tricks.”

It is pulled out all the time, because liberals are people who have no possibility of debating on the level of ideas, and can therefore only demonize and race-bait.

Last year, I responded to the same exact charge from Jimmy Carter the same exact way: “Question For Jimmy Carter: If We Despise Obama Because Of Racism, Why Is It That We Despise YOU?”

But here we go again, another liberal ideologue who assumes that just because she can’t get over her own personal issues of racism, neither can her opponents whom she projects upon:

Because They Can’t Say ‘I Don’t Like Him Cause He’s Black’
By Noel Sheppard | April 24, 2011 | 12:06

ABC devoted its entire “This Week” on Easter Sunday to “God and Government,” and not surprisingly the question of President Obama’s faith prominently entered the discussion.

When it did, Cokie Roberts said, “The bad part about this is that it’s acceptable to say that he’s a Muslim because the same people won’t say, ‘I don’t like him cause he’s black’” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

STEVE ROBERTS: The word Muslim is a code word, and it’s a metaphor. It’s a metaphor for racism. It’s a metaphor for he’s different from us, he’s not like us, he’s got this funny name, which he says all the time. And it is – and he’s an alien on some level. But this goes back to our earlier discussion, that there has always been a strain of America that wants to exclude the other. Exclude someone who’s different…

(CROSSTALK)

COKIE ROBERTS: But – but – but the bad part about this…

(CROSSTALK)

ROBERTS, S.: But in the long run, the forces of…

(CROSSTALK)

ROBERTS, C.: Right. But – but…

(CROSSTALK)

RICHARD LAND, SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION: Forty seven percent of white people voted for him.

Actually, it’s 43 percent, but still a spectacular point by Land that most on the panel missed and most in the country ignore. They also forget that shortly after his inauguration, Obama’s favorability rating was around 75 percent. That includes a lot of white people as well.

What the media just can’t get their hands around is that disapproval of Obama today isn’t because he’s black – it’s because of his policies. Or do the 70 percent of the country that now believe the nation is on the wrong track also feel this way because the President is black?

ROBERTS, C.: But – but the bad part about this is that he – that – that it’s acceptable to say that he’s a Muslim…

EBOO PATEL, INTERFAITH YOUTH CORE: That’s right.

ROBERTS, C.: …because the same people won’t – won’t say, “I don’t like him cause he’s black.” So it’s – it’s – and – and the fact that it’s acceptable to dislike him because he’s a Muslim is the problem that you were talking about.

Calling Americans racist, despite there being an African-American in the White House, is acceptable on Easter Sunday.

I doubt I’m the only one that felt this was highly inappropriate on such a holy day.

So why is it that I think you’re a total disgrace, Cokie?  I mean, you’re white and everything.  Why is it, based on your racist theories, that I think that an obviously quite-caucasian-person like you is utterly morally depraved???

 I would rather appreciate it if liberals would search through my blog for liberals like Jimmy Carter, or Nancy Pelosi, or Barbara Boxer, or Harry Reid, or Alan Grayson.  And maybe you can do a pull-quote where I say, “I can’t agree with __________’s politics, but he/she happens to be white, so I like him/her.”
 
I could care less about Obama’s melatonin level.  It’s the color of his ideology I can’t stand.  Same as with you, Ms. Roberts.
 
Cokie Roberts and this Steve Roberts are racists.  They are racial demagogues.  They falsely use the issue of race to attack their opponents.  They are among the very worst human beings in America.  Because if you don’t agree with them in their politics, they will stoop to the lowest and most loathsome tactics to paint you in the most hateful way they know how.
 
I like Clarence Thomas, when I know you can’t stand him, Cokie.  Same goes for tremendous (and black) men like Herman Cain and Allen West.  You can’t stand these black men.  And they are actually considerably “blacker” than Barack Obama.  And going by your own “logic,” I can only conclude that it must be because you are a racist.
 
You are poisonous, vile people.  Frankly, it never would have even OCCURRED to me to think that disliking a politician from the “other party” was due to racism, but you racist bigoted people just keep forcing me to apply your own twisted and perverted standards back at you.
 
It is crap like this that explains why I don’t bother to watch ABC unless they have something like the NBA playoffs on (which somehow I love to watch even though there seem to be an awful lot of black people).  I mean, how much is it worth to hear Cokie Roberts look into my mind from the other side of the television camera and attempt to diagnose my mental states?  You know, when I know that a) she hates me; and b) that she is a fundamentally dishonest and venemous person???  You know, even in spite of the fact that she’s white and all.
 
I like black people just fine, Cokie.  It’s people who think and speak like you I can’t stand.  And I don’t care what color your skin happens to be.
 
For the record, I have never said Oama is a Muslim.  If anything, I think Barack Obama’s god is Barack Obama.
 
I DO know that he is most certainly no Christian:
 in 1995, Obama said, “my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country …” and again in May of 2008, “our individual salvation depends of collective salvation.”
 
What does Jesus say?  Consider Matthew 16:24-25:
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If any one (individual) wishes to come after Me, he (individual) must deny himself (individual), and take up his (individual) cross and follow Me.  For whoever wishes to save his (individual) life will lose it; but whoever loses his (individual) life for My sake will find it.
 
Consider 2 Corinthians 5:10 for the thoughts of St. Paul:
 
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one (individual) may be recompensed for his (individual) deeds in the body, according to what he (individual) has done, whether good or bad.
 
And again, St. Paul in Romans 14:12:
 
So then each one of us (individual) will give an account of himself (individual) to God.
 
Or consider Galatians 2:20:
 
“I (individual) have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I (individual) who live, but Christ lives in me (individual); and the life which I (individual) now live in the flesh I (individual) live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me (individual), and delibered Himself up for me (individual).”
 
And, again, in the words of Jesus as recorded in Revelation 3:20:
 
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If any one (individual)  hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him (individual) and will dine with him (individual), and he (individual) with Me.”
 
Barack Obama is most certainly not a Christian to so miserably misunderstand that we are EACH INDIVIDUALLY saved by our PERSONAL faith in Jesus Christ through what He did for us on the cross.  This is not some esoteric “how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?” sort of question; it is a core fundamental of the Christian faith.
 
And if you need further confirmation that Obama’s “Christian faith” is nothing more than a leftwing political ideology masquerading as religion, consider the hateful racist preacher he chose to listen to on Easter Morning when the rest of us were celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection.
 
The “Muslim” thing is a red herring.  To the extent that some “conservative” is wrong to call Obama a “Muslim,” liberals are every bit as factually incorrect to call Obama a “Christian.”
 
Then there’s the fact that Obama has largely brought the “Muslim” label on himself:
 

OBAMA: And what was the first thing the McCain?s campaign went out and did? They said, look, these liberal blogs that support Obama are out there attacking Governor Palin.

Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come–

STEPHANOPOULOS: Christian faith.

OBAMA: – my Christian faith.

 
You see, I’ve made a lot of gaffes in my day.  But I have never even once in my entire life inadvertainly called myself a Muslim.  That doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s a Muslim, but it definitely at least means that he doesn’t hold his “Christian faith” very firmly.
 
Just this past Sunday (which was Easter for you liberals who don’t give a damn about the day we celebrate the bodily Resurrection of Christ from the dead), Obama amazingly refused to give an Easter statement.  By contrast, Obama has released plenty of statements honoring Muslim holy days:
 
Barack Obama released statements for the Muslims holidays of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, the Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha last year. Just last month he released a statement for the Persian Nowruz holiday
 
So it’s like when it comes to being accused of being a Muslim, Obama – at the very least – puts a great big giant “PLEASE KICK ME!” sign on his own pants, and then cries in outrage and shock every time somebody dares to kick him in the pants.  And then there’s all these mainstream media propagandists just following Obama around hoping that somebody kicks him in the pants so they can cry foul.
 
In the end, I never cease to be shocked at just how unrelentingly biased and hostile these “objective” journalists are to conservatives.  And frakly, if so-called “journalists” like Cokie Roberts simply had the integrity to come out and say, “I am a rabid leftwing ideologue, and I’d like to tell you what I think,” they would be far more interesting.
