Obama: If you oppose the Gang of Eight immigration bill you’re probably scared of minorities

During an interview on Spanish-language network Telemundo today, Obama implied opponents of the Gang of Eight amnesty bill are motivated by racism. You might have thought that the race card would have an expiration date or at least dim in the light of the post-racial president, but Obama makes sure that our politics are continually colored by skin-deep analysis.

    No…seriously, I just want people to follow the law and protect our borders first….

  • William J. Miller

    Or, maybe we believe in the rule of law. But why split hairs…

    Anyone trying to enter, or who has entered, this country the right way, should feel double-crossed right about now.

      THEY DO…

  • bobbymike34

    But the bigger picture question why a nation that is roughly 60% white has an immigration policy that imports almost 90% minorities with no connection to western cultural norms?
    Because in 1965 Democrats like Ted Kennedy deliberately changed the policy away from ‘current population representation’ to import people from the 3rd world with little in common with the predominant US culture.
    This is the culmination of the Marxist plan to destroy America from within.

    • Truth

      By allowing low educated, unskilled, welfare bound people to flood through the border, he is guaranteeing a continuing stream of growth to his party’s base. This was never about compassion and always about politics. If he cares so much, why doesn’t he press his south of the border counterparts into improving their countries’ lots rather than this constant promotion of our dear country as their lifeboat?

      Also a little publicized fact, Teddy Kennedy was also responsible for the beginning of the end of our great health care system with the implementation of HMOs. Rarely in the debate over what could be done to improve that system is it mentioned that the more government got involved in payments, the more expensive and complicated it has become.

      we do all this to prove to the left that we are not racist. Its time to just accept the charge of being a racist and take the power away from these imposters.

      • 1228wt

        You had white people tripping over themselves to accuse other whites of being racists. The white liberal socialist who is the worst offender of this racist talk have shown their hatred in the past and present. Liberals support the two worst murderers of all time, Stalin and Mao,the same type of socialist the liberals are, The liberals also fiddled when under Clinton they refused to take any action and about a million blacks were slaughtered in Rwanda. The also rallied around “sheets” which the liberals called him. “Sheets” was klu klux klan, kkk member democrat senator Robert Byrd, their longest member of congress. Don’t forget, the democrat and some republican liberals made abortion legal and have used it to kill millions of black babies.

        We need to show who the real haters are. IT’S THE WHITE LIBERAL.

  • CR

    Oh come on! The mainstream media has declared that hispanics are white now, so how can we STILL be racist if we don’t want to open the doors to Mexico and let everyone come on down and get in on the government’s free stuff bonanza?

    Keep your stories straight people?!?! Are hispanics WHITE or are they MINORITIES because they bloody well cannot be both.

    • John Rebori

      Sure they can, as long as it serves Dear Leader’s purpose.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      Technically, they are Spanish (or Portuguese) speaking Celts, and Celts include the Irish, Scottish, Welsh, most of Spain and Portugal and some French and English (Cornwall and Brest). Celts are Caucasian, hence white. Of course, people from India and the Middle east are also Caucasian, and hence white, but liberals keep trying to label them as “brown people” also. Divide & Conquer.

  • TocksNedlog

    The first post-racial bi-racial president strikes again!

  • Truth

    Remember how he was supposed to be the “Great Uniter”? Since he is both black and white, there would be no more antagonism between the races? I believe that since he has taken office, race relations have suffered more setbacks than in all the years since the civil rights movement began. He is intentionally driving a wedge between the people by his senseless racial drivel.

        The white liberal lawyer who put Jeantel on the stand wanted to embarrass the afro-americans. White liberals are haters, that’s why the lawyer wasn’t black. Obama is silent about this. Obama, your white is showing.

    • Michelle

      I just made a somewhat similar post above, before reading yours just now. Funny how many of us are having the same thoughts about Barry. He is thoroughly dividing this nation based on race.

      • Conservative Ohioan

        Not just race, but economics, religion, and sexual orientation. Split the population into as many subgroups as possible, pit them against one another, pray for conflict, enact martial law.
        That’s the plan and it’s working splendidly.

    • Matt

      Only b/c King Obama the Terrible was a articulate pseudo black guy and the press excused every single piece of evidence indicating he was basically a race hustler, in the vein of Sharpton and Jackson.

      Then the idiots voted for him again, because Romney caused a guy’s wife to get cancer or something. Nothing about the 2012 election make sense to me, except that people are morons.

  • sacha

    Hey President Obama, I have NO PROBLEM with LEGAL immigrants. In fact I have helped immigrants study for their citizenship test, so I am not scared of immigrants. I am sick of you, your wife, and many other elect officials and bureaucrats who think they know what we think, feel, or need! YOU DON’T ME andI certainly wish I had never heard of you and many others in Washington D.C. Every time you try to help, make things affordable, or do anything comprehensively the law abiding, taxpaying, citizens or legal residents get screwed. So stop helping and thinking you know what we want, need, or think. Secure the border and enforce the immigration laws that are already on the books; that’s what we want. BTW we are not all racists or obsessed with race like you, your wife, the Democrat party and your friends in the MSM.

  • Meeeech_L

    No, we’re afraid of increased U/E & decreased wages for the next DECADE. Perhaps someone in the Obama administration could bother to read the CBO report to see what the consequences will be to American citizens if this bill should pass.

  • Truthseeker

    Countries exist to give people with common values a space to practice their way of life. Having to share that space with people who don’t share those values only leads to conflict. People don’t step onto a new land and magically become just like the native population, they still carry habits, modes of thought and customs from their old land. To say that these differences are not always reconcilable is an understatement.

    People fear becoming a minority? How is that is in any way an illegitimate fear? All it means is that people with different worldviews and goals can then outvote you and leave you with no representation in the country that your people founded and cultivated. Where are you supposed to go if your living space no longer reflects your values or culture?

    If my choices are either being considered a “racist” or watching my culture be diluted out of existence, I know which one I’m going to choose.

    Obama is really, and I mean really, ruining the chances of a black man ever again being elected President of the United States. Even my black friends have HAD IT with his race crap. I was born in ’67, so I missed the whole Civil Rights fights, but I can honestly say that in my own lifetime, I’ve NEVER seen my country so racially divided as it has been since this man has been president.

    • Joe W.

      I was born in 1949, and I witnessed the whole civil rights era. It is FAR worse today than it was in the 50s & 60s, Michelle. And the chances of race relations improving is about as good as my San Diego Chargers ever winning a Super Bowl. Ain’t gonna happen.

  • pulseimpact

    I support strong immigration and oppose a path to citizenship. It would be ironic to call me racist being that I’m multiracial and support interracial relationships. The biggest hypocrisy to me is that liberals complain about poverty and overpopulation being the issue yet support illegals invading our country and breaking laws and using our resources.

    BHO doesn’t listen to conservatives claiming not to be racists, because he “knows” better. Yes, he’s the president, but there has to be an effective way to turn this back on him. Is anyone honestly asking him, Mr. President, with all this talk, are you helping or hurting?

    • http://www.grouchyconservativepundits.org/ Rusty Bill

      Who is going to do the asking? Politicians? They’re almost all leftists (yes, even the so-called Republicans). The Media? Reliably leftist. Academia? Totally leftist. The American citizen? “Flyover country” “bitter clingers”.

      • 1228wt

        Like in Egypt, Turkey and Brazil. It’s up to the people. To the gov’t the people are the enemy. Even when a politician (and there are some) speaks up, we are afraid to come to their aid. I don’t blame them. The politician has something to gain by their silence, what’s the excuse.of we the people? We voted them in (in the past), our kids depend on us. Now it’s almost all voting fraud, that’s why I said in the past.

  • Matt

    I’ve sort of just embraced my inner racism. I’m not, you know, actually racist but since I’ve been called racist for basically every belief I have (whether said belief was actually, you know, racist), I’ve stopped worrying about it.

    • Conservative Ohioan

      If you are white, you are guilty of unconscious racism. Apparently, we’re born that way.

        Bingo. The so-called “civil rights leaders” of today are scam artists who couldn’t care less about equality.

    Here’s Obamuh once again showing his daft’n’daffy leadership skills lending further proof of why he should–NOT–be leading the national conversation on race.

  • ObamaFail

    No racism about it. I just think it’s wrong to reward people for breaking our laws. And this amnesty garbage doesn’t just slap us in the face, but it also slaps all of the law-abiding immigrants who used the proper channels to get citizenship and EARNED their right to be here. I have nothing but respect for people who want the American dream and are willing to obey our laws to get it. Illegal immigrants don’t deserve respect. They broke our laws, and should not be rewarded for it. And it’ll be devastating to our economy. Because let’s face it, 11 million more on welfare and food stamps just puts more pressure on taxpayers to fund people who refuse to earn their place. Plus, it can’t be ignored that the Dems put a provision in the Gang of 8 bill that penalizes employers for hiring Americans and legal immigrants over illegal immigrants.

  • jetch

    I don’t want to see my culture eroded any more than it already is, what’s so wrong with that? blacks and hispanics feel the same about their cultures. why is their culture something to be praised and admired while mine should be hidden away and slowly eroded?
    i’m sorry but there is a reason mexicans cross the border illegally to get here, it’s because their country sucks. mexico has just as many resources as the u.s. and had the same chance to succeed as we did, but they failed miserably. I don’t want the u.s. to end up like mexico – which it will if they become the majority.
    and for the record, blacks don’t particularly like it when other minorities move into their neighborhoods and change their culture either.

    • nc

      Sorry, I don’t get this “our” culture and “their” culture. This is America, there is an American culture. And yes, that doesn’t mean everybody does things the same way. Heck, we don’t even talk the same way in different regions. So what? If we are different religions (as I am Jewish) so what? We can still retain our ethnic identities and customs (food, music, etc) but be American first. It’s all part of the mix anyway, right?

      We share common values as Americans. It’s not as obvious as it used to be, but I still believe they’re there. And it doesn’t matter who you are or where your ancestors were from to share those values.

      Don’t give in to the race baiters. We’ve come too far to let them spoil it all.
