The wordpress blog known as WorldNetDaily blew the dog whistle gently today with an article entitled ‘I voted for Obama because’s he’s black’. Not an article as such, just a link to an article on the only website with lower journalistic standards than WND, TMZ. Samuel L. Jackson was giving an interview to Ebony, an African-American cultural magazine, when he uttered the words that would go onto make the headline for WND.
I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.
He elaborated further (just imagine Jules saying this if you want a laugh):
When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a nigger. Because, what’s a nigger? A nigger is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. Niggers don’t have beers at the White House. Niggers don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A nigger would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the fuck said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ’cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.
And just because we can’t discuss Samuel L. Jackson without at least one motherfucker:
Some days I agree with Dr. [Cornel] West and what he says about the President not dealing enough with the plight of the poor. Then I think about how they won’t give him credit for anything…The President got about a week of moderate applause for capturing the most-wanted man in the world (Osama Bin Laden). You ask me, he should have put that motherfucker on ice and defrosted his ass November 1st.
The “article” solicited the response you would expect from WND readers. “Top 50″ comment contributor Christopher_Nelson opinioned:
I must be honest myself. I wouldn’t vote for a minority president. I prefer a white president. The difference is, I’m white so I can’t think that way. Even tho the majority of blacks think that way.
I don’t care about Jackson wanting a black president. I care about the double standard of a white wanting a white president. It is simply natural to support your own kind. But whites cannot be open about this. Minorities can do it all day long.
Between women and their radical feminism and support of liberalism , and minroities and their attack on white culture. I can see why the Founders made it so that only white, male, land owners could vote.
Congratulations on getting it completely ass-backwards. I can’t fathom, and possibly never will, understand how white, males – particularly Christian ones – equate the loss of privilege as an attack on them. As far as I can tell he is assuming that the Founders of the USA limited voting to the white, males, and wealth least this vulnerable group gets picked on. No, it was done because enough of the Founders were wealthy, racist, misogynist and they couldn’t see why they should abandon their privilege by actually making everyone equal. Greg Miller commented:
Samuel L. Jackson articulated basic survival instincts. White Christians could learn much from his reflexive tribal solidarity.
That is it everyone, you are under attack because of the “Others”. Surround the wagons. It does get worse.
I never hear of of Samuel Jackson. Is he somebody in authority? If so, he should know that BHO is not black- There is a word for it- Mullato or something like that. Means he has a white Mother.
Now Samuel J, you know a history lesson
Blacks don’t realize that it was mulatto Muslims like Obama that sold them into slavery.
all African after-birth are about as smart as a “Pet Rock” !!! they were never known for their brilliant thinking ability : ) …..they respond much like a leech does
Samuel Jackson, friend and admirer of Hugo Chavez, found the message of a mixed-race bastard meaningless? That is major political news. Comrade Obama – part black, part white, part Arab, part swamp creature, all fraud – looks like everyman; he is, by his very own definition, a citizen of the world.
Yep, WND’s pandering to the birther crowd is not racist.
