Obama is NOT the Anti-Christ, He’s Black and That’s the Problem

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Political correctness, be damned!  All of the racists and bigots out there need to just take it back to 1960 and call the President the N-Word!  I’m tired of the re-directing.  Stop coming up with random titles and false charges to apply to this man.  You are mad because the President of the United States is a Black man. Period. You are afraid.  You are outraged that a Black person has that much power.  You are a closeted racist and you know who you are.  You are so bold and you are so sure you’re right, why do you hide your true feelings?

LiveScience.com – Americans have some extreme views of President Obama, with a new survey revealing 40 percent of adults believe he is a socialist, and about a quarter of survey participants thinking the president is a racist, anti-American and even doing things Hitler did.

The whammy: 14 percent of Americans say President Barack Obama may be the Antichrist. When split by political party, 24 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats viewed the nation’s leader in this way.

The results come from a Harris Poll involving 2,320 adults who were surveyed online between March 1 and March 8 by Harris Interactive, a market research firm. Respondents were selected from among those who agreed to participate in Harris Interactive surveys. The results were then weighted to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population. [Infographic Compares Views]

Here’s the percentage breakdown of respondents’ views of President Obama:

  • 38 percent say he wants to take away Americans’ right to own guns.
  • 32 percent say he is a Muslim.
  • 29 percent think he wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world government.
  • 29 percent think he has done many things that are unconstitutional.
  • 27 percent say he resents America’s heritage.
  • 27 percent say he does what Wall Street and the bankers tell him to do.
  • 25 percent say he was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president.
  • 25 percent say he is a domestic enemy that the U.S. Constitutions speaks of.
  • 23 percent say he is a racist.
  • 23 percent say he is anti-American.
  • 23 percent say he wants to use an economic collapse or terrorist attack as an excuse to take dictatorial powers.
  • 20 percent say he is doing many of the things that Hitler did.

When broken out by political party, results showed some stark differences. For instance, the majority of Republicans believed the president is a Muslim and a socialist, while around 40 percent believe he is a racist, someone who resents American heritage and “wants terrorists to win.”

Hitler?  Really?  Where is this sentiment coming from? Why do people hold these false, extreme beliefs? Because in politically correct, “post-racial”  America you can’t just say, “I don’t like the President because he’s a nigger and I don’t like/trust/serve/deal with niggers!”.  Say it.  Start saying it pundits!   Start saying Fox News!  Start saying it Tea Party members!  Join those who are very open with their racist views and don’t hide behind politics.  Be honest and stop this ridiculous posturing. You  go around calling the President and Congress liars and crooks but you yourself hide your real intentions. Trust me, your fellow Americans would prefer to know who they are REALLY dealing with and hearing from.

I would much rather know that you’re a bigot than have you smile in my face or be dishonest about it.  Go ahead, call a spade a spade.

  1. I’m not going to defend anyone referring to Obama as “Hitler” or “Antichrist” as that sort of histrionic insanity speaks for itself. And I’ll grant that there are a number of people among Obama’s fiercest critics who are genuinely racist and don’t like the idea of a black man in the White House.

    However, there’s a general stereotype going around that the (mostly conservative and white) critics of Obama are bothered by the fact that the President is black. I just don’t think that’s the case because those sort of people would probably be pleased as punch with the very same black man in the Oval Office if he were a conservative Republican. Remember, these people hated Clinton too despite his whiteness, and love Clarence Thomas despite his blackness. I think the idea that Obama’s color is animating his critics (or “haters” for those who really can’t stand him) is inaccurate.

    I think Walmart is the AntiChrist. There are so many of them and they are all over the world. They don’t pay their employees enough. They do not provide health insurance for all their employees. They discriminated against women and blacks. They are a one stop shop for groceries, clothes, drugs etc. They have hundreds of drugs that are $4. They put Mom and Pop stores out of business. And management were told not to support Obama.

    This man’s past and current life has been overly scrutinized, and to date, nothing has been found against him. He IS a US citizen and I seriously doubt the President is the Anti-Christ, a racist (if that’s even possible-he IS both black and white) or a Muslim. It pains me to recognize that we are still having this discussion on race – or that it’s even necessary. But by the increase of discriminatory conduct observed over the past two years, it is VERY necessary! I’d venture to say it has increased since he has taken office. A US Army 3-Star General openly refuted his Commander in Chief without apology on a conservative Web site. Congressmen were publically insulted for being black or gay while carrying out their respective elected office. Regardless of how any of us feel about the president, we should respect the position. The 2008 Presidential Election was not rigged/fixed/stolen (as past elections have been infamous for). President Barack Obama was duly elected into office by a MAJORITY vote. In US Government class, we learned the nuances of our government. Some of us even learned and discovered the imperfections and contradictions of law. Still, as policy would have it, voting is our most accessible vehicle for change….revolutionary voting. I remember many complaining about the methods of governance from President George W Bush. We endured his leadership for eight long years and we witnessed unjustified declarations of war, an economic recession, and watched golden parachutes come to the rescue of irresponsible CEOs. In fact, we paid for that – literally. And now that President Barack Obama is doing what he promised during his campaign, he’s a socialist? Get real! Some are so used to politicians lying; they can’t recognize any level of integrity when they see it. There is something brewing in our society. And if we (those of us in the age range of 18 – 40) don’t speak out against it, those who breed hate and believe that they are the majority will soon have to accept that [in the grand scheme of things] that’s just not true. Another commentary should also be considered: Ageism and understanding the behaviors of our generation(s). Generation X-ers and Y-ers are accused of sitting idle while Obama critics vehemently (and vocally) denounce and slight our Commander in Chief. I hope and pray that we are the type of generations that speak with action more so than with [spoken] words. Could it be that political and civil activism is now achieved via the World Wide Web? Perhaps. But we have to DO something more – NOW!

  4. Sista, as a white woman from the South, I completely agree with you. People are calling him all kinds of other names instead of saying what’s really in their minds – racism. Unfortunately, in the South the racism is not so hidden. I encountered a lot of open racism while he was running for office. The worst part was that other white people would assume that I felt the same way as them just because I am the same color as them. Strangers would start up a conversation with me about how they didn’t want “a black man in office.” I would try to calmly explain that I did not feel the same way, that I would be voting for him, and that you shouldn’t make assumptions about what others believe. I do know people in the South who voted for Obama and then felt it necessary to lie to friends, family, and coworkers about it. They did not do this because they were ashamed of supporting him but because they could not deal with the hatred that they would encounter.

    Regarding your last post, I find religious tolerance to be non-existent in the South (I can’t speak for the black community).

    Most conservative white peo ple I know would have a black president if he was more conservative. most don’t like Obamas POLICIES nothing more…besides, going off the subject a bit.. what has liberal policies done for us anyway? we’re one of the few groups having kids out of wedlock at least 70% AND having 1/3 of all abortions……also, Mr. Obama hasn’t even been around black people until he got into college and found Michelle..and Rev. wright..anyway, with this American government, it’s not only the president who has power but also the house and senate; they keep each other in check.

  6. Sean T.

    Brando makes a good point.

    Would they be saying this if Colin Powell were president? Even if he ran as a Democrat, hell no. Alan Keyes, no. Michael Steele, obviously not. The bottom line is, Obama was rated the the most liberal senator before he took office and we really do not have that much to give his track record. Just 2 years of federal-level work for us to place his motives, and in that time he got the “Most Liberal” in the class yearbook.

    The Muslim attacks? Obama does not have a record of being a church attender in his youth, he was in Indonesia with a stepfather for some of his unusual youth. He became a church goer by the time he was probably SURE he would run for public office, so why should we be convinced that he’s really a sincere Christian? Or is he a Christian for political convenience? Who can know? What people do know is, his name is Barack Hussein Obama.

    I’m black, not the most liberal out there, but though I don’t justify every sentiment, I can see how its understandable in the case of Barack Obama and I do not believe its his hue that brings on those sentiments. There’s no way Jesse Jackson would be dealing with the same presumptions from a quarter of the public opinion.

    • Sean T: When did we start qualifying whether politicians were sincere Christians? That’s not a test many would want to face. There are pastors who are not sincere Christians.

  7. People need to stop fooling themselves. If a white man were in the White House, pursuing Obama’s policies, THERE WOULD BE NO TEAPARTY. It’s his skin color that tipped them over the edge from vigorous dissent to outrageous behaviors. Until people recognize this and admit it, the country will continue to suffer the indignities of the teapartiers.

  8. Also, I’d like to put to rest the falsehood that Obama is a liberal. He’s a centrist; at most he is center-left. It’s a sign of how rightwardly skewed this country has become over the last 30 years that people think Obama is liberal. Clinton was center-right. Reagan and the second Bush were extremely right wing, and Bush especially was dangerously conservative. We haven’t had a viable left in this country in decades. Big business has done everything in it’s power to destroy the left, and keep it from coming back. It’s favorite tactic is to co-opt revolutionary ideas and turn them into commodities we purchase as fashion statements.

    Don’t get me wrong: I’m glad Obama was voted into office, mainly because he isn’t conservative. But he isn’t liberal either, no matter how loudly the right shouts otherwise.

  9. Sean T.

    Sista,

    Good point and I agree. But, I’m only addressing the belief that he is a Muslim, not a Christian litmus test. If PEOPLE believed that he was a sincere Christian, they wouldn’t question whether or not he’s a Muslim. Not to belittle Islam, I’m just addressing that claim. The electorate would not second-guess Jesse Jackson’s faith because of his history, same goes with Jimmy Carter, the Sunday school teacher. None of us can judge a politician’s personal faith (or relationship with God), but public perception is just that.

    To the commentators that continue to whinge on about how it’s totally-so-not about racism because, after all, They Hated Clinton Too: shut the fuck up, okay?
    Look, they don’t come much more lily-ass in the grand state of Idaho than yours truly (made there, moved as soon as legally possible). Due to my extra-light plumage, and state of birth, it is often assumed I’m “in the club”, natch, and therefore (oh, joy) I have been privy to many of what passes for natural and uninhibited conversation by these people. Guess what? It Really Is All About Racism, You Dumb Denialist Motherfuckers. Clinton may have been not well loved by conservatives, but other than mumbling about his sexual escapades (tee hee!), or how he and Hillary OMGKILLEDVINCEFOSTERNORYLY!, it really didn’t go much farther than that, now did it. I don’t remember the GOP attempting to block every single nominee, every single piece of legislation as a matter of course. The pure vitriol was simply not as..pure.
    If Obama held a press conference today stating that he was giving every family in America a goddamn pony and a new car, you can guaran-fucking-tee there would be a major freakout from the right. And, as stated in the above commentary, it would have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE EITHER THE FUCKING PONY OR NEW CAR. Simply stated, these bloated, over-privileged white racist stains hate HATE Obama because they cannot deal with their ideal of a white man as America’s big daddy being messed with. Their god is a white man, their prezdint should be a white man. Anything less is unacceptable to these fuckers.
    I am so goddamn sick and tired of all the pathetic excuses used in order to try to hide from this painfully obvious fact. It is what it is, and what it is, is racism in it’s most pure, distilled form.

  11. dr.prunesquallor, I have to respectfully disagree with your comment–perhaps it was too long ago for you to remember, but the Clinton years gave birth to the term “Clinton Derangement Syndrome” because many of his opponents simply hated the man–and yes, the GOP filibustered his very first proposal (a modest by today’s standards stimulus package of $20 Billion) and the man was even impeached for crying out loud. Blocks and holds were put on his nominations, he didn’t get a single Republican to back his budget package (due to the tax hike). A cottage industry emerged of writers arguing that the man committed murder, among other things. He was HATED by a certain segment of the right.

    Are you seriously arguing that if Obama was a conservative Republican pushing a conservative agenda he’d still be hated by these same people? Get real! These same people love Clarence Thomas, and loved Colin Powell until he endorsed Obama. Face it–they may hate Obama, rightly or wrongly, but it’s due to his politics. Are some of these folks racists? Most likely they are, just as there are racists on the left who especially hate Clarence Thomas for his views because a black man shouldn’t be thinking the way he does. But that doesn’t mean all haters of Clarence Thomas or Obama are motivated by racism.

  12. dr.prunesquallor

    Whelp, Brando, may I respectfully point out the obvious point that, had Obama had an intense, internalized sense of self-loathing which caused him to be a black republican politician, we wouldn’t be having this discussion, because there isn’t a chance in hell he would have been even considered for the nomination. MAYBE vice-president, tops. And that’s stretching it.
    Obama is not a socialist, he’s not a communist, he’s not (as has been previously pointed out above) anywhere near having heavy liberal ideology. He’s about as centrist as you can get, and yet, and yet.
    What other president can YOU recall, Brando, had their very origins called into question like this man? Why, of COURSE he can’t have been born here, he’s colored! He has to have been born in deepest Africa, natch! I just…wish you and people like you would just…stop the charade. I know, I know, why-we haven’t even HAD racism in this country since the 70′s! (I remember the original Sesame Street, and they had non-scary black people and everything, right?!) You don’t even see color. And yet. and yet.

    And yes, I do remember the term “Clinton Derangement Syndrome” and the delicious shadenfreude enjoyed by the right when he was impeached for having his cigar serviced. Yes, there were bumper stickers, and whining. Of course. However, I DON’T recall members of congress being spit upon and called foul names. I DON’T recall popular pundits calling for insurrection and the literal overthrow of our government. I DON’T remember Clinton being openly accused of being the ‘antichrist’. And I sure as hell DON’T recall this amount of sheer, unmitigated, seething hatred for what amounts to a level headed, fairly middle of the road (policy-wise), sane president.

    And you are asking ME to ‘get real?’ Seriously? They ‘loved’ Clarence Thomas and Colin Powell because they were handy poster cut-outs for the conservative base to point to and loudly exclaim “See, this PROVES we aren’t racist! Look at these guys, see!” Very similar to the endless pouring over photos of ‘Tea Party’ events, trying to pick a black face out of the crowd like some sort of racial ‘Where’s Waldo’ game.

    And to belabor the obvious, the reason they still ‘love’ Mr. Thomas (and to a lesser extent, Michael Steele)and now despise Mr. Powell is for the simple reason that the latter dared finally open his mouth and actually dared to speak his mind about the clusterfuck that was and continues to be Iraq-this happened BEFORE his endorsement of Obama, btw. He was ‘respected’ only until he spoke without waiting to be spoken to.

    No, it is possible to be a black conservative politician, but only if you are prepared to double down on your ass kissing, and remember to be suitably humble, and follow the script you are handed.
    Sorry, your reasoning is paper thin, but it obviously does the trick of being able to feel good about giving yourself a mental high five, so I guess that’s something.

  13. dr.prunesquallor, let me first reiterate that I am not an Obama hater myself–so I’ll thank you not to lump me in with them! But I’m not about to call even his haters all racists. And you may think Obama isn’t that liberal, and I don’t disagree with that–and neither was Clinton for that matter–but keep in mind that their harshest critics considered both men very far to the left and pursuing an agenda that these people (the “haters” of Obama and Clinton) feel threatened by. Does the fact that these folks like Thomas and Powell alone make them not racist? Maybe not, but it does indicate that their feelings are more based on politics than race.

    I’m not going to defend the uglier actions that have taken place recently–spitting, racial epithets, threats, use of the word “antichrist”–and I haven’t done so. I also found hateful incidents that were directed at Bush–another president who I didn’t care for–to be equally out of line. And I don’t care for liberals and conservatives each downplaying the ugliness directed by their own side, as in both cases it’s inexcusable behavior.

    There’s nothing wrong with opposing and speaking out against a president or his actions–and unbridled hatred and vitriol is especially uncalled for. But my point stands–these “racists” as you call them seem to only vent their “racism” at black politicians whose policies they despise.

  14. In every single comment here, I’ve found things I both agree and disagree with.

    I think labeling all criticism against Obama as racist is an oversimplification. Some people don’t like him because they disagree with his policies. I do believe there are racists among Obama’s critics, but that does not make every critic a racist. Correlation is not causation (some motorcycle owners are Catholic, that does not make all Catholics motorcycle owners).

    Most obviously, and has been pointed out, his citizenship would not be in question if he was a white dude named Ray McHonky (and I say that as a Rayette McHonky). A lot of it is his race, part of it is that to the Ray McHonky’s of the world, Barack Obama is a funny-sounding name that couldn’t possibly be American.

    Politics has always been a contact sport, but the breakdown in civility in public discourse today is absolutely breathtaking. In this post alone, we have a dissenting commenter being told to “shut the fuck up.”

    There has been a general breakdown in manners, which I personally link back to the impeachment of Clinton over little more than a misplaced cigar and a sploogey dress. Critics on both sides worked out that the louder they shouted, the more airtime they got.

    The tea party movement strikes me as an unfortunate conglomeration of petty grievances by misinformed yokels. I’m all for conservatism, as the world needs balance, but the willful ignorance of the teabaggers makes me nuts. The Fox News firebrands and others have exploited those petty grievances for ratings, incited further idiocy, and further dragged political discourse into the mud.

    So, I guess my point is this: racism is part of it, and it’s terribly important to recognize that, but I don’t think it’s the entire issue. For the record, I do believe that racism still exists, and it’s pervasive, and it’s wrong. (For the record, accusing Brando, or anyone else, of saying that racism has vanished is kind of a dick move. If you’re not sure of what someone is saying, ask them! Assuming the worst in others without asking questions is teabaggery).

  15. cici

    No – its not b/c hes black. (hes half black and so was Lincoln but that’s besides the point)

    Its because he has no experience and hes NO DIFFERENT FROM BUSH!! he voted for patriot act(takes away our rights) he voted for the war – he bombed Pakistan FIRST week as president(bush never bombed paki so i take back the no diff part)

    He’s done next to nothing as pres so far. We are still in the mid east, killing civilians and getting into more debt. Health care bill only gives insurance companies MORE money.

    Now to the real point of all this……the reason hes called the “anti christ” because SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE HIM. why!? hes done NOTHING. is it because hes black and said change a lot? yeah. probably.

  16. luke

    38 percent say he wants to take away Americans’ right to own guns. (he doesn’t, he said he doesn’t)
    32 percent say he is a Muslim. (he’s not. he’s about as “christian” as I am)
    29 percent think he wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world government. (this will happen with or without him)
    29 percent think he has done many things that are unconstitutional. (the bailout was “bipartisan”)
    27 percent say he resents America’s heritage. (well, our heritage is spotty, but we are mostly good natured people)
    27 percent say he does what Wall Street and the bankers tell him to do. (we all do, we are chained)
    25 percent say he was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president. (these people don’t like him cause he’s black)
    25 percent say he is a domestic enemy that the U.S. Constitutions speaks of. (racists)
    23 percent say he is a racist. (he’s not, he loves himself and he’s half white)
    23 percent say he is anti-American. (he’s pro himself and therefore pro american)
    23 percent say he wants to use an economic collapse or terrorist attack as an excuse to take dictatorial powers. (he’s powerless in this department)
    20 percent say he is doing many of the things that Hitler did. (yeah we all do, eat, sleep, shit.. it’s just the hating jews part and dictatorship part that he doesn’t DO )
