Playing With a Full Deck: Of Race Cards!

How many race cards are there in Obama's campaign deck? A lot, notices Charles Krauthammer.

Money Q:

WASHINGTON -- Let me get this straight. A couple of agitated yahoos in a rally of thousands yell something offensive and incendiary, and John McCain and Sarah Palin are not just guilty by association -- with total strangers, mind you -- but worse: guilty according to The New York Times of "race-baiting and xenophobia."

But should you bring up Barack Obama's real associations -- 20 years with Jeremiah Wright, working on two foundations and distributing money with William Ayers, citing the raving Michael Pfleger as one who helps him keep his moral compass (Chicago Sun-Times, April 2004) and the long-standing relationship with the left-wing vote-fraud specialist ACORN -- you have crossed the line into illegitimate guilt by association. Moreover, it is tinged with racism.

UPDATE: And one of those reports from a campaign event in Scanton, the one that claimed someone yelled "Kill him," at the mention of Obama's name turns out to be dubious, if not an outright lie.

At the rallies, the Secret Service is engaging in politics by preventing the press from interviewing supporters in the crowds to actually find out who is hearing and saying this stuff. However, there can be no doubt about the xenophobia being promoted. Krauthammer knows this and is just being a political tool by trying to explain it away as anything else.

The RNC is a racial playing card factory.

Gil - The fact that people working on the McCain campaign, conservative talk radio hosts, and many of those posting on this blog, have tried to make a campaign issue out of Obamas middle name is proof that the McCain campain is intentionaly trying to promte xeonophobia. Does it get any more obvious?

Anon - At Obama rallies class warfare is being promoted and the race card is played relentlessly.

Bob - It is the position of Spencerblog that people who mention Barack Obama's middle name should be killed.
