“But most of your audiences were primarily white. And they can love Clarence when he’s onstage, but if they ran into him in a bar, suddenly…the n-word comes out.”
—-Former President Barack Obama, talking with Bruce Springsteen on CBS Sunday Morning about the rock star’s partnership with the E Street Band’s late black saxophonist Clarence Clemons.
And there it is. That’s how Barack Obama, just like his racist wife, thinks of white people like me. When “they” see a black man at a bar, even a famous musician like Clemons, they just can’t restrain themselves. The “n-word”—that’s nigger, you know—“comes out.”
I’m not at all surprised that Barack Obama has such contempt for white Americans. This is the man who sat through decades of sermons from Rev. Wright, after all, and this is what that man of God preached. Obama wrote that Wright was his “spiritual mentor,” but somehow Brack was still able to get away with claiming that he had no idea that Wright was an anti-white (and anti-American) racist despite listening to him with admiration every Sunday. Oh, Obama slipped up now and then and revealed his bigotry (I almost said “true colors”), and his actions spoke louder than his words: for example, he allowed his lackey attorney general to consult with Al Sharpton and his gang on race policy. Obama’s most lasting legacy is that he sent race relations in the U.S. reeling backwards, and the momentum is still in the wrong direction.
Still I am surprised he would rip the mask off so decisively on national TV. Obama has always been notable for the gap between his superb speaking skills when scripted and his ineptitude when left to his own instincts, but even so, I thought he was a more accomplished phony than this. True, he has increasingly been willing to reveal the real Barack as the money poured in, the deification persisted and he felt assured of news media support no matter what he said or did. Nevertheless…
That’s an ugly, racist statement that stereotypes all white Americans as bigots…and it is a lie. I take it personally, but never mind me: at this fraught time in American society, Barack Obama is deliberately promoting racial distrust, hate and division. He needs to be held accountable.
But what did his pal, working class hero Bruce Springsteen, reply when the ex-President declared that “they”—you know, those racist whites who have made Bruce rich—start hurling “nigger” at blacks the minute they leave his concerts?
