Quote# 35414

But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics. (During the Clinton Administration we were all introduced to then U. of Pennsylvania Professor Lani Guinier — also a half black/half Jewish, red diaper baby.)


Political correctness was invented precisely to prevent the mainstream liberal media from persuing the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama's mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student. Love? Sure, why not? But what else was going on around them that made it feasible? Before readers level cheap accusations of racism — let's recall that the very question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s. The notion of a large group of mixed race Americans became an issue during and after the Vietnam War. Even the civil-rights movement kept this culturally explosive matter at arm's distance.


Time for some investigative journalism about the Obama family's background, now that his chances of being president have increased so much.

The Arrogant Atheist

He was born in Hawaii, a state known for being quite liberal, and diverse. Its not like the continental states. Whites aren't the majority there, and they have a large population of mixed race people. Your argument fails to acknowledge the culture and politics of his birth place, instead injecting your own racism where it does need be if you actually do a quick Wikipedia search of the state he was born.

Lt. Fred

Ah the National Review. A foremost member of the 'liberal' media. They never got over the Civil Rights Voting act. Or the abolition of slavery.

Just to be annyoing, how about any reporting, investigative or otherwise, on Bush's family background. On his maybe rape? Or perhaps his desertion from the air force?

I think that Obama alone, with his witt, intelligence and why not?, being a fairly handsome man, is reason to back interracial marriage. I mean, better with Obama's father than with a stupid redneck who can only say "fries large or medium""

Was Wentworth Miller's mother or Hally Berry's connected to communism?, or Mildred and Richard Love?. Ah wait, it only counts if it's a woman the one who marries a black man. See, both racist and sexist.

So interracial marriage is only done by Communists? Have you informed the Woods family of this?

Or does it only count when a white woman is involved?

Of course in the good-ol-day's you would of just lynched the bastard for even thinking he was capable of holding a "white mans job", wouldn't you.

People falling in love?

Communist Plot.

Damn Communists, with their mind control cupid rays....

One has to wonder if they had such power over individuals, how the USSR could have ever fallen.

Actually, no one doesn't have ot wonder because Lisa Schiffren is a racist choad, quite a commonality at National Review (who's latest thing is to link Barack Obama with communism)

Oh and I think this line sums it up...

"Until I came across this article by Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media, WHICH I REGARD as factual"

But looking at the sources, it's from "Accuracy" (cough cough bullshit) In Media, a group who's job is to accuse the Media of being Liberal. (not to find out if the media is biased, mind you, but to find the bias whether it's there or not). And their sources? blogs and innuendo from people who don't like Obama. (I dont' like Rush limbaugh. But if I go around saying he's a baby eating cannibal, i better have more then my word to back it up)

And this is how the RW works when they smear someone. They get some guys saying Bull Shit. then the echo chamber keeps spreading this farther and farther and farther. The Media then either picks up the story, spreading the lies even further, or else they get accused of being "Liberals".

And so the mud flinging is given a veneer of validity because so many people are Talking about it.

Would you run that by me again, Lisa? In English this time?

I hope that communism in fact existed prior to 1848, because otherwise I would find hard to explain how 25% of the southern white population has black ancestors.

Obama is actually related to Dick Cheney. Cheney's wife did some research and found that they are like second cousins or something.
