I didn't read the article, but I'll just assume that you're racist for posting it.

This is news?

I could have told you six years ago that 99% of the people claiming Obama is secretly a Muslim terrorist are really just racist fuckers with no basis in reality.

what about people who don't think he's a secret Muslim terrorist, but just don't think he's a good president. Are they racist fuckers, too?

I didn't say anything about them.

Of course you can not like Obama for other reasons, and that's perfectly fine. I really doubt anyone calling him a Muslim terrorist is really not racist though.

Clearly. They think that only white men can run the country.

Probably not, but I also seriously doubt that people that don't like him now would love him if he was white.

I was just fucking with you. Considering who started this thread, I'm not taking anything in it seriously.

Re: Oprah Winfrey says Obama victim of racism

Someone needs to remind Oprah that George W. Bush was called dumb,stupid by Hollywood liberals and got a shoe thrown at him. You guys remember BUSH LIED!, BUSH LIED!
Compare that to just reporting what Obama promises and reporting on how things have gotten worse under Obama. But that's racist. For the great Oprah to still defend Obama is just ...

Not to mention this movie getting made. I know it wasn't a Hollywood production, but I seriously doubt we'll ever see a "sequel" to it.

Re: Oprah Winfrey says Obama victim of racism

Winfrey pointed to Republican Congressman Joe Wilson yelling "liar" during a 2009 speech Obama was giving to Congress.
Wasn't aware calling somebody a liar was racist.

Of course, I wasn't aware of how pathetic Oprah has become over the years.

Calling someone a liar isn't racist. But what causes a congressman to have so much disrespect for the President of the United States of America that he heckles him during the State of the Union? Racism is certainly a very plausible explanation, albeit not the only plausible explanation.

About as bad as multiple members of congress booing a president during his State of the Union address.

Re: Oprah Winfrey says Obama victim of racism

Dam O! You be pullin' the race card already!?
Look. Every Presidency has it's haters and there will always be a 'card' to pull on why.
Bush was hated because of the War in Iraq. Clinton because he got some tail on the Oval Orifice ... Office. Bush Sr. because he wanted a New World Order. Obama is hated because he continuously lies. He just happens to be Black

When will Spike Lee and Rev. Al Sharpton join in ?

Re: Oprah Winfrey says Obama victim of racism

Ridiculous of her to claim. Of course there are probably more than a few million Americans who hate him (and voted against him) because he's black, but most who have a bone to pick with him feel that way because of his policies, including many to his left.
He actually seems like a truly decent guy. I feel sorry for him.

Why would you even think of somebody being a racist if they are heckling another politician?

Apparently, you think racism isn't that bad, and neither does Oprah. Hell, let's just call anyone racist who does anything that doesn't parallel our own biases.

it was a question of respect. The argument could be made that he wouldn't have felt confident enough to shout "liar" in the house chamber to a sitting president if that president were his "equal".

Re: Oprah Winfrey says Obama victim of racism

He should have waited until Obama went into the "You can keep you plan" crap .. then Wilson would be looking much better now.

But in any case, yeah it was a pretty classless move ... not sure about racist though, maybe he would have said the same to Clinton ... and I am not really seeing how it is different then people trying to shout down Bush.

If Obama lied in a deposition about getting a b-jibber in the oval office and House Republicans initiated impeachment proceedings, would racism be a "very possible explanation?"
