Obama: I “probably” shouldn’t have told Latinos to go out there and punish their “enemies”

posted at 8:40 pm on November 1, 2010 by Allahpundit

He included “probably” as a qualifier, I assume, just in case Latino turnout is unusually low tomorrow.

There were arguments being made that because Democrats hadn’t gotten this done, that Latinos should vote against Democrats or just sit out the election.

And I said, well, you can’t punish your friends when — the folks who’ve been supporting it. Now, I did also say if you’re going to punish somebody, punish your enemies, and I probably should have used the word, “opponents” instead of enemies. Now the Republicans are saying that I’m calling them enemies. What I’m saying is you’re an opponent of this particular provision, comprehensive immigration reform, which is something very different.

But the key issue here is that if you are supportive of comprehensive immigration reform, if you are supportive of health care reform, if you are supportive of making sure that credit card companies are treating us fairly, making sure that banks are properly regulated so they don’t end up getting taxpayer bailouts — if you support those things, then you’ve got to support those who helped to put those provisions into law. And you’ve got to make sure that those who are opposed to that legislation, that they get a clear message that they shouldn’t be standing in the way of the progress, but rather we should be moving this country forward.

Is that all he meant, that Republicans who support border enforcement are merely opponents on a particular issue? Because I’m finding that somehow hard to square with something else he said during that same original interview, namely, “Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” Is it any surprise that, in the course of rank racial pandering and insinuations that people who support Arizona’s law are un-American, he’d lapse rhetorically from “opponents” into “enemies”?

Here’s video of Boehner tonight in Ohio feeding him a giant shinola sandwich on this very point. It’s clever of him to include Clinton in the list of presidents who’d never refer to political opponents as domestic enemies, but I’m not sure that a guy who strategized with Dick Morris about how to use Oklahoma City as a bludgeon against mainstream Republicans belongs in that club. Exit question: How desperate is Harry Reid for Latino turnout to save him against Angle tomorrow? Here’s your answer.

I’m still trying to reconcile the “punished with a baby” and “punish your enemies” statements.

Does this mean he’s asking the Latino’s to impregnate white women or something?

And now with his clarification, does that mean he cinsiders babies to be his opponents?

I’m so confused with this new way of speaking.

John the Libertarian on November 1, 2010 at 9:42 PM

Awww…Professor Obama is trying to clean up after Street Agitator Obama.

As far as I’m concerned, I put Obama in the same catagory as South American Marxists because the way I see it, Obama decided long ago that he didn’t want to be the President of the United States, he wants to be the Chairman of an anti-white bigot coalition and overthrow the government of the USA. He’s just doing it from the inside. He’s not even trying to conceal it too well either.

When he says Republicans/Whitey have to sit in the back and he exhorts Latinos to punish their enemies/Whitey…he means it…it comes from his heart. He despises White America. He thinks we’re evil people who mudered the Indians, enslaved Blacks and stole Mexican’s land. That’s the America he believes in. That’s why his first action in office was to go around the world and apologize for America.

This is just another illustration of how he thinks the English language should be submissive to another culture, particularly when that other culture follows Islam or when it seeks to otherwise weaken America’s culture.

What’s next, his prounouncing Mexico like “Meh-hee-co”? He can go have se-hee with himself.

Did comprehensive immigration pass while I was asleep? NO? Then he’s commited another Obamateurism. We should have one “of the hour”. He’s simply too prolific.

Sorry, doofus – what you said is what you meant. Anyone opposed to you/your agenda – your “opponents” – are your enemies. You can false-parse all you want; we’ve seen all too clearly what’s in your attitude. The reason you’re so thin, I suspect, is because you’re in a perpetual state of hyper-fury because you can’t use the full-blown anti-American, anti-patriot, Marxist rhetoric that we see lurching in your eyes every time you open your mouth. It really makes no difference what words you use – we’re adept at reading between the lines of your facial expressions and of the dark shadows in those glaring, scolding, hateful windows to your soul.

I really depended upon mah media agents to protect me from you hearing this kind of stuff, but it is “You people” in the media who have failed America.

What this man is saying now, for all to hear, is not what was wrong in his heart, for he truly believes that we (God, gun and bible toting, freedom loving folks,) are his enemies.

That “enemies” thing slipped by his media his handlers, his image friendly censors. Gotta CHANGE that image – those words, before they know what I’m really about!

I chose not to give the president a pass. He treats us like the enemy, and actions speak louder than words.

As soon as he finished that statement there was I light sound of a snap, and Damocles sword stuck in his coconut

should thank him really

A very Liberal ex-friend of mine (still friends with my wife on FB) just wrote these words regarding this topic “wow, I can’t believe he actually said that, how horribly stupid.”

Yep, that’s what this man is, horribly stupid…

Words of advice fro our Community Organizer in Chief:

~Get up in their face.

~Punish your enemies.

~It will be hand-to-hand combat.

~They bring a knife, we bring a shotgun.

Or something like that.

Probably?

Probably doesn’t cut it.

Now, I did also say if you’re going to punish somebody, punish your enemies, and I probably should have used the word, “opponents” instead of enemies. Now the Republicans are saying that I’m calling them enemies.

Obama: I probably shouldn’t have said that the future majority in Congress are my enemies.
