The man who four years ago promised Americans that his would be a “post-racial” presidency, is gearing up a decidedly race-based campaign for reelection. In addition, Obama is blatantly ignoring the very “Separation of Church and State” that Democrats bray about whenever a Bible-based Baptist, Methodist or Catholic objects to a leftwing policy, organizing churches to directly support his campaign. From Paul Joseph Watson:
Imagine if Ron Paul announced a national campaign called ‘Whites for Ron Paul’ – he’d be vilified as a racist. And yet Barack Obama has done the equivalent of precisely that with his launch of ‘African Americans for Obama’.
The program urges black Americans to volunteer their time by making calls, organizing events and going door to door in their neighborhoods encouraging other African Americans to vote for Obama.
Not only is Obama playing the race card in an attempt to pressure black Americans into voting for him, he is also violating the separation between church and state. In the video promo for the campaign, Obama urges black people to pressure churches into supporting his administration by getting his message out via “the faith community”. He also calls on voters to become “congregation captains”.
Again, imagine what the reaction would be any of the Republican candidates launched a ‘Whites for Romney’, ‘Whites for Santorum’ or ‘Whites for Gingrich’ campaign. There would be non-stop uproar. But Obama does the equivalent and gets a free pass.
If there is one, over-riding feature of Democrat politics and politicians, it’s the arrogant, “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy with which those on the left approach political contests. The rules which they would force on others, don’t apply to Democrats. And Obama’s race-based reelection campaign is simply the latest example.
