It Begins… Democrats Play Race Card Against Fellow Dems For Voting For Federal Prisoner Over Obama

It begins.
Democrats are playing the race card against fellow Democrats for voting for federal inmate Keith Judd over Barack Obama in the West Virginia primary.
Big Government reported, via Lucianne:

Everywhere there was a primary last night, Democrats had a very bad night, especially in West Virginia where a prison inmate won over 40% of the vote against Barack Obama. Naturally, because Democrats simply refuse to face the reality of this failed administration, the cry of racism was heard even before the polls closed. Only this time the Democrats’ charge of racism was directed at fellow Democrats:

Democrats in the state attributed Obama’s problems to his race, and sought to counter that with an unusually blunt campaign message in October, seeking — unsuccessfully — to convince white Democrats to vote for the African-American candidate. Primary exit polls found that 20% of white voters in West Virginia cited race as a factor in their overwhelming support for Hillary Clinton, the most in any state.

No, not 20% of white voters — 20% of white DEMOCRAT voters — cited race as a factor in 2008.

But that doesn’t explain why over 40% of voters voted against Obama in favor of an unknown federal prisoner currently serving time for extortion and threats against a university.

This is much less a vote against Obama based on his skin color and much more a sign of deep-seated discontent with a divisive President who has failed decisively in every imaginable arena.

    This isn’t new. They basically did this last week. The New York Times had a story about a county in eastern Ohio that is a Democrat stronghold and they were talking about how Obama didn’t win by the margin most Democrats win with in that county and they attributed it to race. I thought maybe they didn’t see the irony in the fact that it was a supposedly Democrat stronghold, so that would make the Democrats racist, but maybe they are using this as a tactic.

    The dems are becomming so pathetically desperate that they will allege any sort of negative behavior when their candidate is exposed as a fraud and a failure. The result of this primary shouts the discontent of the masses with the poser, socialist president.

  • mg4us

    Every time they pull out the race card, we should pull out a card that says “RACE” and say we can play the race card too. . .

    Or pull out the Ace of Spades Card and say
    “Let’s call a spade a spade. . . race is not the issue! and ACE trumps you!”

    They are getting desperate. . .

    Anyway, I thought Obama is a White Blackman! Maybe they voted against the stupid things his white-half is doing!

    WOW, one criminal takes votes away from another criminal…

    I am shocked the party of the KKK, Jim Crow laws, and segregation would do such a thing.

    “Only this time the Democrats’ charge of racism was directed at fellow Democrats”

    Once Obama was elected, you would have thought the left would be happy and put racial issues in the past, after all Obama said this is a Post Racial Nation.

    I took those words to mean, racism was over. Truthfully, I never thought that. Seems the democrats didn’t get the memo from the appeaser in Chief.

    They just can’t believe that Obama is a socialist and has done nothing to improve our nation. And debt and our National Security are too important to give Obama another chance. Obama’s work ethic is a failure and his policies are seriously hurting job creators.

    And something important above all is, if we are attacked chemical, dirty bomb, water, food or whatever, after Obama’s 5 trillion in debt, we are done.

    So now dog lovers are racist?

  • forest

    Feel free to fight amongst yourselves, Democrats.

  • Texas_Treeroach

    The Democrats shouldn’t feel as though this is a racial issue.

    After all, the first-choice candidate at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution was lifer Jamel Washington.

    But he refused to run, saying that associations with the DNC would damage his reputation. So they went with the not-so-picky white guy instead.

  • Patty

    Black Panthers and Holder, George Zimmerman case. Bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Too many entitlements, socializing of America.

    Beer Summit, Obama looks racist to some Americans. There will be many reasons to vote for a New President. Some voters will vote for drilling, security, less government, independence from the grips of government. Those in 08 were hopeful and now their hopes are gone. Obama cannot bring it back. He is running like he was never president in hopes that Americans are stupid and aren’t paying attention.

  • Patty

    Democrats say the Republicans are racists. You here it from leaders in Washington.

    I don’t know if they are stupid or the just believe what they are saying.

  • What’s the big surprise? The Democrats voted for a White criminal as a protest against the incumbent half-White criminal. At least this White criminal didn’t claim to be 1/32 Cherokee…although that hasn’t hurt the standing of the lying, pandering criminal running for U.S. Senator as a Democrat in Massachusetts.

    Soooo,when the Liberals aren’t eating dogs ,they’re are eating each other…let the cannibalism begin

  • They wore out their quaint little race card long ago. They were warned not to overuse it but arrogance is its own punishment. Same deal with their Homo/Islamo/phobia cards.

    Only card they have that still has some power is the one they use to keep democrat blacks on the Socialist Plantation. Even that is eroding away. Obama is a national embarrassment thus to the black race itself; even more so when he loses by a landslide in November.

    I am waiting for the Ground Zero Mosque to come back in the national spotlight so the Socialists can declare the 70% of Americans who oppose it to be racist islamophobic haters again. (smile)

    Example of how libs and blacks hate an alleged white racist more than a certified black racist who happens to be a convinced rapist. Mel Gibson was set to be in The Hangover 2, but the libs on the set were up in arms over it and wouldn’t have it, namely Zach Galifianakis. He didn’t like Mel or the fact that he was spewing racist language on the tape his ex released. They did have Mike Tyson, known racist and convicted rapist, but that was just fine with these other wonder libs. Just the crime of being a non-liberal white is enough for punishment from these losers!

    If the worst thing you can be according to libs and blacks, is a non-black racist, then I think lawsuits for defamation are in order once accused directly of being a racist. People lose their jobs, credibility and are tarred & feathered because they are accused of being a racist, at least that’s how non-blacks are treated who are accused of being a racist. SUE them. Start a precedent that will shove the race card up the same hole as they keep their brain in!

    The fact that you have to preface what you are going to say so you don’t sound racist because you are guilty until proven innocent… “I’m not a racist, but” means they are winning and freedom of speech only truly applies to a minority in this country.

    Democrats in the state attributed Obama’s problems to his race,…

    They’re not just flogging a dead horse, they’re whipping a badly-decomposed carcass.

  • GrayRider

    21% of Democrats in yesterday’s NC primary didn’t vote for Obama and Obama was running UNOPPOSED! I suppose that those 21% of Democrat voters who didn’t vote for the black guy are racist too. When it reality, 21% on NC Democrat voters believer that Obama sucks so bad they can’t even hold their nose and vote for him. OBAMA = FAIL.

  • eckleburg

    I don’t know much about the case that sent Judd to prison. But it seems funny that he was given 17years for extortion and threatening a university. It seems like an awfully long time to me. Thoughts of a Trayvon Martin prosecution come to mind. Does anybody know more about the case? Albeit he does sound like a bit of a kook or typical democrat.

  • CR

    Of course it’s a racial issue. Why else would anyone vote against their messiah? Surely not because he’s trying to wreck the coal industry. Maybe those voters just don’t like people with big ears, liars, socialists, or dog-eaters.

    I got a million of them…

    The Democrats of West Virginia had a choice between two criminals.

  • Sasja

    Hey, Barry wrote these folks off long ago. Why the problem now? This vote that happened in WV does not bode well for Mr. High And Mighty. Really, 42% would prefer a convict over Obama (who should be in prison)? That’s gotta hurt.

    All they have is to play the old and tired race card. If they think they are going to shame these voters into supporting Barry come November, they are going to be very disappointed.

    FROM RUSH 4/30/12:

    RUSH: I’m just now watching Fox News during the break here at the top of the hour, and they’ve apparently got some polling data, and they’re breathless about it. Megyn Kelly was talking to Pat Caddell and Chris Stirewalt, who’s their polling guy. And they’re just excited as they can be. You know why? Because blue-collar voters in their poll have abandoned Obama. (Gasp!) No, say it isn’t true, madam! Blue collar voters, white… Caddell pointed this out. White blue-collar voters have abandoned Obama. Now, you knew this all the way back last November. And what do you also know? You also know that Obama has abandoned them!

    That’s what’s really going on. How many times have I referenced it now, the piece by Thomas B. Edsall? He used to be at the Washington Post, and is now at the Huffing and Puffington Post. He had a piece in the New York Times talking about how the regime was gonna punt on white working class voters, the bitter clingers. He’s gonna write ’em off. They’re gonna write ’em off because they’d already lost them back then. Traditional Reagan Democrats (Blue Dog Democrats, whatever) have just abandoned Obama. Because of economics. They’re Tea Partiers now. And now it’s codified. Fox has it in their polling data.

    You knew it in November. You’re on the cutting edge of societal evolution

  • Sasja

    There should be a >.< at the end of that last phrase.

  • mg4us

    WV is not alone. . . one can understand Democrats there being angry that OBAMA and his EPA are trying to shut down coal mines and destroy coal industry. .

    But look at North Carolina

    in North Carolina, Obama lost a little over 20% of the vote to “No Preference.” This is another sign that this President isn’t even exciting Democrats!

    He ran unopposed in NC. . .and yet 20% of registered Democrats voted against him. . .

    The Democrats can spin this story any way they want, but it still comes out looking like a big ol’ one-finger salute to the policies and scandals of a feckless administration.
