I’m not looking forward to a race war in America, but some people are. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is alleged to be in favor of such a cleansing fire for this country, and he’s not the only one.
In today’s Philadelphia Daily News, Fatima Ali has a message for the cruel, heartless, honkie Republicans and their corporate paymasters who run Amerikkka: Elect Obama, or face a race-based uprising.
She leaves no doubt that we can look forward to Armageddon if we make the wrong choice in November:
We need Obama, not 4 more years of George Bush
America is on the brink of a long, harsh and bitterly cold winter, with a looming recession that the GOP won’t even admit to.
The policies of the current White House have brutalized our economy, yet the wealthiest think that everything is fine.
Rich Republicans just don’t understand that millions are suffering. But many of their working class do, and they’re beginning to abandon their own party.
When lifelong Republican Barney Smith told the Democratic convention that he’d vote for Barack Obama for president, he gave pause to even the most conservative members of his party.
Smith, like many disgruntled working-class Republicans, is ready to turn his back on his party because he’s having such a hard time providing for his family. Like others, Smith fell victim to the loss of 3.2 million American jobs as factories closed or their work was outsourced to cheap labor markets overseas.
Hit the pause button here. Who is Barney Smith?
Every time the Democrats trot out a “lifelong Republican” who has seen the light and been born again into the party of True Religion, he or she turns out to be a fake. Mr. Smith turns out to be no exception :
Barney Smith’s voter registration is clear. It shows that for the last 12 years he has voted in 3 primary elections. In 1996 he voted Democrat, in 2006 he voted Republican, and in 2008 he voted Democrat. [Barney Smith’s voting record (pdf)]
Huh. Some Republican.
But the most telling thing that Ms. Ali has to say is this:
– – – – – – – – –
If McCain wins, look for a full-fledged race and class war, fueled by a deflated and depressed country, soaring crime, homelessness — and hopelessness!
Plenty of Americans would rather stay in their dream state than to recognize the poverty sweeping across the country, right here, right now.
Obama understands that people are suffering. Every week, prices go up at the supermarket, and people are unable to feed their families. It already is dark and stormy for millions, who can’t even afford pencils, book bags and lunch money for their children.
But when Obama wins the White House, we may just see a revolution that can turn the tide and improve this nation for everyone, not just a select few. [emphasis added]
This is blatant mau-mauing: elect our guy, or expect trouble!
I’ve been dreading this kind of thing ever since Obama was a gleam in the NYT’s eye, and you can bet there will be a lot more of it before we punch our chads in November.
Fatima Ali has made it clear: the USA had better elect Barack Obama in 2008, or else.
