Who’s playing the race card? Update: Audio added

posted at 11:11 am on June 21, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama told supporters in Jacksonville that Republicans would launch racist attacks against him in the upcoming election.  Without noting a single supporting piece of evidence, Obama cast any opposition to him as bigotry, and in doing so, recalled just a touch of Joe McCarthy’s tactics:

Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him.

“It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy,” Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. “We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid.

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

The ironic part of this argument is that it ignores the tactics his fellow Democrats used in the primary, while also overlooking John McCain’s efforts to distance himself from the same tactics.  It was, after all, staffers on the Hillary Clinton campaign that sent the photo of Obama in African garb to the Drudge Report.   It was Bill Clinton who suggested that Obama’s victory in South Carolina was no more significant than Jesse Jackson’s in 1988.  It was Hillary who explicitly went after the white, working-class vote in the later primaries that bruised Obama so badly.

John McCain, meanwhile, was a lot more outspoken in criticizing his own supporters for relying on crypto-ethnic references.  He immediately and publicly disowned, without any prompting, Bill Cunningham in Ohio after the radio host enphasized Obama’s middle name (Hussein) in his introductory remarks.  McCain also fired one staffer for e-mailing a Jeremiah Wright video after explicitly saying that his campaign would have no comment on Wright or Trinity United.  Meanwhile, Hillary could only offer a tepid “as far as I know” repudiation of the rumor that Obama is/was a Muslim.

Just as with his untrue statements on Republican financing and 527s, Obama seems content to issue lies and smears in order to inflame the electorate.  There is more than a little hint of McCarthyism in this tactic.  Joe McCarthy waved pieces of paper around and claimed to have lists of Communists in government that he never substantiated.  Obama likes to accuse Republicans of racism without any proof, either, while apparently discounting the real race-card playing in his own party.

If he has proof that the Republican Party and/or John McCain plan racist attacks on him, let him show it.  If he doesn’t, then Obama is guilty of his own racial pandering and should apologize. (in part via TMV)

Update: Copied comments from the Headlines post.

Update II: Baldilocks notes that the demonization has begun.

Update (AP): All I’d add to what Ed said is that Team Obama’s been playing the race card for a long time now. What makes this different is that the candidate himself, for once, has deigned to dirty his hands instead of letting his jerkiest lackeys, like Jesse Jackson Jr., do it for him.

Update (AP): Just in case Team Barry tries to deny he said this, here’s the audio. Big cheers for the siren song of demagoguery, natch.

Well… so much for post-racial politics. He just injected a big ‘ole dose of race right up in there, huh?

Do people really fall for this transparent crap coming out of his campaign?

Republicans will run on racism

This Republican conservative certainly will point out the fact that Obama would be totally unknown if he wasn’t Black.

jgapinoy on June 20, 2008 at 8:43 PM

Memo to Obama:

Go ahead, duba$$, keep calling us racists. We who are not racist are sick and tired of you and Sharpton and all the other racemongers accusing and convicting us of crimes we did not commit without benefit of evidence, trial or jury of our peers. We will respond, en masse, in the voting booth in November.

Bring it. Then Nov 5th, STFU.

Sincerely yours,

Someone who has never been prejudice in her whole life and is sick and tired of being accused of it JUST because I am successful.

P.S. FU

This is not the Barack Obama I’ve come to know.

(1) Right, it’s the Republicans who are “highlighting the fact that he is black.”

(2) Looks like our national dialogue on race is over. Sucks.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr….

I’m a Southerner. I’m a Republican. I haven’t met anyone who came up to me who was bagging Obama because of his skin color. Sure, there are stupid people everywhere, of every color, to whom race is an issue.

The content of your character, Barry, is what drives me away.

Limerick on June 20, 2008 at 8:51 PM

I can’t wait to hear this back peddle.

ronsfi on June 20, 2008 at 8:54 PM

If anything will revive racism to its former unsavory, disgusting glory, it is the kind of bull**** Obama is spouting. He his playing the lowest, most disgusting card possible.

If he was honest, trustworthy and had some experience — and was conservative — I wouldn’t hesitate to vote for him regardless of race, religion or any other factor not of his making.

As it stands, over the last interminable year, I have come to loathe him for what he represents, which is a triumph of false race guilt and elitist communism. My two hopes are that he loses and fades thereafter into the obscurity that should be reserved for race hustlers from all sides of the issue.

BTW, Mr Osama Obama: I supported Shirley Chisholm in the 1972 Democrat primary and was one of those (many, I think) who wanted Barbara Jordan to run. I’m still proud of that. You, sir, are no Shirley Chisholm.

Hell, you’re not even an Al Sharpton.

MrScribbler on June 20, 2008 at 8:55 PM

“We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid.

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced

So far, so accurate. You’re also a socialist/Marxist, with an anarchyst wife, elitism and cockiness aside.

He said he was also set for Republicans to say “he’s got a feisty wife,” in trying to attack his wife Michelle.

Your wife is beyond feisty. That toothpaste will never, ever get back into the tube. Live with it.

“We know the strategy because they’ve already shown their cards. Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn’t moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us,” he said.

No one, in the last 30 years will set race-relations back more than the two Obamas, win or lose.

Obama, born to a white mother from Kansas and a black father from Kenya, has cast himself as a candidate who can bridge divides within the country, including those involving race.

Did you know that his mother was white? By November he’ll be white too. In the general he was black. The metamorphosis has begun.

Yes, be very afraid.

‘Loved’ the way the article was written too.

Gee, and all this time I thought I was not voting for Obama because he is an inexperienced socialist @$$clown with a following almost as annoying as Ron Paul’s.

So now I am “enlightened” to know I am some sort of racist by some guy whose dad was never told to come in through the back of an Oklahoma restaurant (my dad’s family has a lot of Texas Cherokee in it. When he and I tan, we look full-blooded).

We just got transported to 1984 and his name suddenly changed to Jesse Jackson. How dare this scumbag who spent 20 years in the pews of a vile, racist and anti-American church dsre talk about someone using race as a tool of fear.

This guy is beyond the pale. I don’t care much for McCain, but at least McCain isn’t a jackass.

TheBlueSite on June 20, 2008 at 11:07 PM

So the only thing the Republicans have is racism, or code words for racism.

Here’s the codebook:

Obama is a socialist = he’s black
Obama has zero executive experience = he’s black
Obama wants to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq = he’s black
Obama wants to nationalize health, oil, transportation industries = he’s black
Anything short of voting for Obama = he’s black

stonemeister on June 20, 2008 at 11:29 PM

Things must not be going so well in Obambi’s Camelot as the MSM would lead us to believe. This could be a good sign that Barack has become so full of Barack that he’s not considering how the typical white person of either political party may find more shopworn race cards tiresome. Even the Dims are bound to notice the perfect four part harmony of Obama, Sharpton, Jazzy Jackson and William Jefferson the moment someone challenges them.

Obambi playing the race card so early? That sounds suspiciously like angry Hillary playing the sexism card shortly before her campaign began to sputter out.

homesickamerican on June 21, 2008 at 12:46 AM

One of Obama’s goals is to provoke his opposition into defending themselves. It’s the old “how often do you beat your wife” ploy. If he can get his opposition “distacted” into spending their time and energy trying to convince the nation that they aren’t secret KKK members, this reduces potential problems they can create for Obama.

So Republicans are racists if they notice that BHO knows practically nothing about US history, US or World Geography, foreign affairs, economics, business, or the Constitution?

Most people couldn’t care less about your name and your color, Senator Obama. They fear being lead by you because you have no substantive legislative record, you’re a chronic liar and, after explicitly stating that you choose your friends carefully, you have repeatedly and systematically made friends with people who hate this country.

You would “bridge the divide,” Senator, by burning that bridge.

Folks, don’t let this Sower of Discord shut you up.

~ ~ baldilocks

crr6, it’s shocking that someone who did teach at such a prominent school for so long, on the topic you mentioned, doesn’t know that it’s a federal offence to modify the presidential seal, aside from the impertinence of sitting behind one ahead of being elected. And this is just one example.

Every day he gets worse and worse.

First it was Republicans smearing his wife.

Then we made up rumors about her saying whitey.

Then we got all our money from evil lobbyists and “527′s” to smear him.

Then we are going to tell people that he’s black.

I can’t wait for tomorrow’s enlightenment.

I wasn’t born a democrat, my father wasn’t a democrat, i’ve never even seen a democrat.”

These are “community organizer” tactics. If someone wants to help defeat Obama, the tactics and goals of his activities in Chicago will need to be investigated and exposed.

Denying that he’s half white shows he’s ashamed of himself, so who’s the true racist?

The only ones I’ve heard talk about race are…..Rev. Wright, Bill Clinton, Spike Lee, Barack Obama. And they would belong to which party?

All I’ve heard from Republicans is that he is extremely inexperienced, naive, and a flip flopper.

I’m convinced the Obama campaign made up the whole “whitey” thing and tried to pin it on Republicans and Rush so that he could make a statement just like this.

ctmom on June 21, 2008 at 8:57 AM

If BO was running to be president of the NAACP, would he be considered to be the first white president? Would he be telling people “They gonna say ‘Did I mention he was white’”

If he does become president, will the next black person who has a black mother and father be able to claim that he/she is the first real black president?

There seem to be way more people who praise him because he has dark skin, than fear him because of it. What we fear is his ideas not his skin color. He and his followers seem to be the ones most concerned about his race, and what is so absurd is that he is half and half.

peski on June 21, 2008 at 11:22 AM

It’s really kind of early to be playing the race card. And he’s saying “Republicans” in general, casting them as a group of racists (which we all know is true, right, Senator Byrd?) and not specifically citing McCain.

If he wants to float this commentary, I think that would be good. McCain is probably one of the best people the GOP can float in a campaign around racism because he’s been so proactive in clearing those weeds from his campaign.

And by invoking the race card, who’s really doing the fear-mongering?

He’ll prove as bulletproof on this as McCain is on love of country.

McCain is going to have to dodge and weave every time some righty plays the race card. The Obama campaign and the MSM will always ask him to respond whenever some numbskull makes a racial remark. The sound bytes on nightly news won’t be McCain on the issues it will be McCain forced to comment on some bonehead’s remarks about Barry.

The ironic part of this argument is that it ignores the tactics his fellow Democrats used in the primary,

This creep was going to play the “you’re a racist if you don’t bow down” card sooner or later.
The fact that the mask is slipping 5 months early is a good thing for us- scare away those moderates Barry with your racist accusations against a major political party.
I’m thinking that as the heat grows he’s going to appear to be what I think he is- a punk with a gang of thugs.

jjshaka on June 21, 2008 at 11:36 AM

Aside from McCarthyism, this reminds me of the Democrats’ “Don’t you dare question our patriotism” screeches during the 2004 election, when the only ones mentioning “questioning patriotism” at all were Democrats. Claiming a false victimhood is a favorite tactic of theirs, and the Democrats need to be called on it loud and often.

I would not vote for Obama if he were white as snow. Thats what the left will never understand about the right .We vote for a person not based on his or her color black white brown or any color but on there values and love of this country and all that is good about the people of america. Not for someone or his wife who stands up and tell everbody was a bad and mean people & country we are!!!
