Martin Racist, Says WVA Congressman

Last night, the last news story I saw involved this lackwit congressman from WVA, Jim Moran. Let's see what he has to say about America's voting preferences:

Rep. Moran: Dems Lost Because Many 'Don't Want to Be Governed by an African-American'
Published January 28, 2011
Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran is blaming his party's losses last November in large part on voters who
"don't want to be governed by an African-American."
The comments were made following President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday during an interview with Arab network Alhurra. Asked about the results of the midterm elections, the Virginia congressman compared the political environment to that which preceded the Civil War and suggested race was a determining factor.
"It happened ... for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States," Moran said. "Southern states, particularly the slaveholding states, didn't want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.
"In this case a lot of people in this country, it's my belief, don't want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that's a basic philosophical clash," Moran said.
Moran attributed his party's opposition to an "uneasiness" with President Obama, saying the criticism comes from a "selfish and close-minded perspective."
Reached for comment, Moran's office stood by the remarks.
"With nearly 1,000 identified hate groups in the U.S. and recent studies showing a majority of Americans believe racism is still widespread against African-Americans, it is no secret that our country has and continues to struggle with racial equality," spokeswoman Anne Hughes said in an e-mail. "The congressman was expressing his frustration with this problem and the role it played in the last election. Rather than ignore this issue or pretend it isn't there, the congressman believes we are better off discussing it in order to
overcome it."

There, see? If you voted against Obama, it was because you were a racist! Now, I don't know about you, but I don't particularly like it when some hick I don't even know calls me a racist. I also don't like that congressmen are only reachable by e-mail when they serve YOUR district. So, I wrote Marlin Stutzman to ask him a favor instead:

Dear rep. Stutzman:I wonder if you can do me a big favor. Because of the rules regarding e-mailing only reps in one's own area, I want you to give a message to Mr. Moran of WVA. Please let him know that racism did not affect my votes this fall or any other year. I wonder how many who voted FOR the current president can say that. If you'd like to paraphrase, please tell that ignorant hillbilly that I as an American who rarely votes democrat am insulted to the highest degree, and I assure him that I'd never vote for him either. Try to explain to him that only an asshole uses race as an excuse for his own (or his group's) inefficiencies. Thank you, sir, for your help- and editing. CW Martin

I mean, let's think about this. According to exit polling, black voters who came out in unprecedented numbers in 2008 to help put President Barack Obama in the White House, decided to stay home in 2010. An estimated five percent of blacks voted in the 2010 midterm elections, compared to 13 percent in 2008. Oprah Winfrey, for the FIRST TIME, openly supported a presidential candidate in Obama. Michelle Obama said her husband's election "was the first time" she'd ever been proud of America. The black Panthers posted outside Philly polling places to intimidate whitey. DO YOU SEE A TREND HERE??? The very same ethnic group that brought you a non-conviction of OJ Simpson despite the glaring, overwhelming evidence (read Without A Doubt by Marcia Clark). And now this gentleman comes along and says his party lost because I AM RACIST!!! How about its because I DON'T LIKE YOUR POLICIES!!! You could paint Obama white and yourself purple for all I care. And is that because I'm a racist? No, it's because...


(He did get one thing right though. One of the reasons that I voted against Dems last fall is that they want to give money to everyone.)

Y'know, I think history is going to judge Obama unfairly. Not because of what he did, but who he was connected to. Bill Ayers. Jeremiah Wright. Rahm Emmanuel. Rod Blagojevich. Nancy Pelosi. Harry Reid. And now, Jim Moran. Some his own fault, some he got stuck with. It's just a shame that he had to come along in an era where, though you no longer have to be white to get white support, you still have to be black to get black support.

"Or at least know who's ass to smooch... hee hee..."


OK, now that the rant's done, I'd like to thank Bob G. for giving me the first case of the Sam Elliots to be transmitted across blogs! Nice job, buddy!

    You have some EXCELLENT commentary here...kudos.

    While many "believe" we had become less divisive when it comes to race, the actuality of it is that we've become a LOT MORE polarized, and this happened before Obama's watch.

    I remember back in the late 1970s through the late 1980s...we were a lot more "cohesive" a people (blacks AND whites) then we are TODAY.

    I had scores of black friends and co-workers who worked AS HARD as you did and were DAMN good anything for you...and you for them.

    Today, we've got blacks wanting MORE for their OWN people because they "feel" they're being slighted in some manner.

    The truth is that you've got MORE on welfare, MORE dealing and using drugs, and MORE preying on other people...period.
    Funny thing, we've STILL got the EXACT SAME OPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE to ALL peoeple as we did since the Civil RIght Bill was adopted, no matter WHAT color they are.

    Some are just NOT making use of that chance (by choice).

    Larry Elder's book: TEN THINGS YOU CAN'T SAY IN AMERICA is a fantastic read that demonstrates the reality of todays racial situation.
    And it sure ain't "whitey's" fault.
    Not by a long shot.

    Great post!

    PS: I didn't know computer "viruses" could jump "species"....learned something NEW today...LOL.

    Quick, let's lobby the WHO and the CDC for some FUNDING lfor like
    (As Dr. Evil) TWO...MILLION...DOLLARS!
    Sound about right?

    Rest up and stay safe out there.
