Wow!… Obama Campaign Holds Protest Outside Romney Stop in Philly (Video)

When all else fails, stalk your opponent.
Mitt Romney visited an inner city school in Philadelphia today to discuss his education agenda. The Obama Campaign met him at the school and protested his visit outside.
Mayor Michael Nutter led the protest complete with Obama 2012 signs.

The Romney protest was organized by the Obama Campaign.
The Washington Post reported:

When Mitt Romney came to an inner-city charter school here Thursday to promote his new education agenda, he received something of a history lecture about the persecution of blacks in America and the struggles of African American children to meet the academic achievements of their white counterparts.

Seeking to broaden his appeal heading into the general election, Romney was venturing for his first time in this campaign into an impoverished black neighborhood to hear the concerns of local educators and community leaders. But here in the streets of West Philadelphia, the emotion surrounding his contest with the nation’s first black president was raw, as dozens of neighborhood residents shouted, “Get out, Romney, get out!”

…Outside, meanwhile, some brick row houses across from the school were boarded up. Police had cordoned off a full city block to protect Romney and his entourage. Residents, some of them organized by Obama’s campaign, stood on their porches and gathered at a sidewalk corner to shout angrily at Romney. Some held signs saying, “We are the 99%.” One man’s placard trumpeted an often-referenced Romney gaffe: “I am not concerned about the very poor.”

Madaline G. Dunn, 78, who said she has lived here for 50 years and volunteers at the school, said she is “personally offended” that Romney would visit her neighborhood.

“It’s not appreciated here,” she said. “It is absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage.”

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) addressed protesters and the media, quipping that Romney “suddenly somehow found West Philadelphia.”

Mayor Nutter is a member of Barack Obama’s PA Truth Team.

    My, my, my. Some black people sure are easily offended.

    “personally offended” “It’s not appreciated here,””speak his garbage.”

    Wow

    And if white people spoke those words about Obama,the nightly talk shows and print media would be in a “racist” frenzy.

    Obama and the media have created a monster and it’s an ugly racist one.

    Just imagine what would’ve happened if a White Mayor organized a White mob to harass a Black candidate and tell him he wasn’t welcome in their city neighborhood. I’ve let Nutter have it on his twitter account.

    And 95% of blacks vote for their people (racists). Because he’s black. Obama and Democrats are against vouchers for the worthy to go to the best school. Keep them on the plantation is Obama’s motto. Romney wants vouchers. Dems want the votes.

    Pfc Nasser Abdo is an unmitigated traitor to the United States

    Abdo’s conviction should result in the harshest
    punishment and a moratorium on CO status for
    Muslims

    “The American Islamic Forum for Democracy is pleased at the jury’s decision to convict Pfc Nasser Abdo on all counts. Abdo is simply a traitor to the United States of America, and his actions are a direct insult both to the uniform of the U.S. Army and in particular to all American Muslim service members. The decision to convict needs to be followed by a sentence that levels the harshest punishment possible, including the military immediately rescinding his Conscientious Objector status. American Muslim soldiers deserve that courtesy.

    AIFD would like to take this opportunity to make it explicitly clear that Abdo has departed from mainstream non-Islamist interpretations of Islam and our duties to the United States of America. In fact his interpretation is dangerous and part of a radical Islamist ideology. His statement that “religion is the reason” for his planned attack on Fort Hood is a twisted view of the Islamic faith that should be refuted by all American Muslim organizations. However, it is also a view that should not be ignored and should be confronted in its many manifestations along the path of radicalization. At the time of his arrest in 2011 Dr. Jasser wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “Our armed forces are becoming ground zero for American Muslims in the ideological struggle between Americanism and Islamism. U.S. Army Pvt. Naser Abdo points to that serious conflict.”

    Abdo disgraces the pride of being an American which we instill in our American Muslim children. His use of CO (conscientious objector) status is not only false it is un-Islamic. Abdo’s obsession with “Islamophobia” is the same logic that drove the murderous rampage of Maj Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood which he tried to emulate. Abdo’s adherence to the global Islamist ideology above his American loyalty runs to the core of what we Muslims need to fight in real counterterrorism. Abdo’s actions are an affront to every American Muslim who has proudly donned a US military uniform. His assertions are not built on modern Islamic teachings but on a feeble adherence to the global political ideology of Islamism that threatens our security and radicalizes our Muslim youth. His comment to his mother on video played during the trial that, “the reason is religion, mom” speaks volumes, yet again, to the deep need for the Abdo case to spark a move by leading American Muslims to dissect and defeat the theo-political movement (political Islam) that can often end in a militant version of Islamism. American security hangs in the balance.”

    I’m personally offended and embarrassed that these people and places exist in America.I would expect it in a third world garbage dump,but this is what happens when you have given full control for too many years to Democrats.Give them enough time and everplace will look and smell like Detroit and Philadelphia.

    Earlier, outside the presence of the jury, Boyd said that an Army legal officer at Fort Campbell in September had dropped child pornography charges against Abdo. Fort Campbell officials did not immediately return a request for comment. Abdo was charged with having child pornography on his government computer shortly after he was granted conscientious objector status based on his Muslim faith last spring. Abdo, who claimed the charges were fabricated by his unit as a reprisal for refusing to deploy to Afghanistan, fled Fort Campbell before his court-martial could begin.

    You know what comes to mind here. And UP LIFTING MESSAGE AND IT WAS NOT APPRECIATED. This was another black protest of hate and anger and disgust for a White Man who is rich.

    Romney has great intentions but he could a taste of what ignorance and depression looks like. And I think he took a lot more from this that we realize. I hope he will talk about the Charter School and what he saw and what he spoke about. The man is very intelligent. No pretense intelligent.

    Not like Obama who conveniently hides his records from the nation.
    If area buildings are boarded up what has this ignorant do nothing Mayor done for the city.

    Romney has my respect, today. He stands head above Obama.
    I do believe that the black people who were so disgruntled are Obama devotees. I can only imagine what the parents around the blacks dinner table are saying to the kids who meet our next president. Ignorant people and we would only hope that these people gets some education and quick.

    The more you give the more they take. The less you give they will stand on their own and get a job and hopefully be proud of what they have done all by themselves.

    Food and shelter is a necessity in life. Who among these people aren’t on food stamps and welfare. 40% of children in Black communities are born out of wedlock. Where are the Baby Daddies. Dealing drugs, lock up in prison, have sex with some other woman, robbing gold pawn shoppes. Seriously, they do believe the gravy train won’t be around when Romney is president. Then they will have to get up off the couch, and stop watching the big screen TV’s and get a job.

  • donh

    This is very nice to see. One of the things I really hated about the Dole McCain style campaigning is how they stayed inside their comfort shell speaking at VFW halls and Rotary Clubs….preaching to votes they could already count on . Republicans dismiss places like Philadelphia handing Democrats many default victories. If Romney puts $1,000 in the collection basket of a few black churches in distressed neighborhoods , he just might pull in enough votes to win the state. Obama is counting on a 9-1 vote ratio in Phily.

    You would think with all the problems Philly has. . with corporations shutting down & fleeing and crime rising. .and especially with Black Youth Flash Mobs, Mayor Nutter should be spending time working on significant problems. . then why is he leading a protest? He should have been welcoming Romney to Philly. . .(bet he was asked and turned it down)

    Butter Nutter seeks to ban churches from feeding the homeless in the streets.
    {..}

    Sister Mary Scullion, cofounder of Project HOME and the city’s most visible advocate for the homeless, said she backed the proposal but would monitor it carefully.

    “I’m here today taking a risk because I honestly believe that [the Nutter administration is] trying to move forward in ending hunger and homelessness in our city,” she said. “This is not an easy position, but I do think it’s a great opportunity.”

    Brian Jenkins, executive director of the Chosen 300 Ministries, a network of 73 churches that feeds homeless people at several locations around the city, including on the Parkway, said the mayor was guilty of discrimination.

    “It’s a clear violation of civil rights,” he said. “The reality is that before the Barnes Foundation comes in, they are trying to get people off the Parkway.”

    Nutter says the true aim is to offer better and safer food to the hungry. He says the city will set up a temporary space for serving meals at City Hall’s northwest corner and offer free food safety classes for organizations that want to serve meals.

    The ban will take effect following a 30-day comment period.

    Romney did enjoy is time with the kids.

    Republican Mitt Romney ventures into democratic territory to talk education the presumptive GOP. nominee was in West Philadelphia this morning, to tout school choice at a charter school.

    A top Republican Party strategist tells me she’s begging the Romney camp to go hard after city and minority voters especially on issues where there is a natural fit.

    In a city where public school are in constant crisis, governor Romney came to Universal Bluford Charter School with a message sure to resonate even in heavily democratic West Philly school choice.

    Before meeting and greeting students, the presumptive GOP nominee told a roundtable of education advocates that he favors allowing federal education funding to follow the student.

    In this heavily democratic neighborhood, Governor Romney seemed careful not to attack President Obama by name but the message in this school full of children was very clear.

    Four years ago, Mr. Obama won Pennsylvania by more than 600-thousand votes that entire margin came from Philadelphia and its four suburban counties. Most of the margin came from the city itself. But GOP officials say Romney must not surrender those votes this time around.

    Of course, charters have a mixed record of success in Philadelphia. Democrats say they drain precious resources from public schools. That reference to employment opportunities may be an interesting play in our area.

    Pennsylvania’s jobless rate is well below the national number. But city unemployment is still a huge problem.

    There is still segregation in the cities in America. Always has been and always will be until someone has the courage to turn things around. We all know of a section in our cities that are all for the blacks. So, none of us can say that racial divide will ever be ended.

    That is until a person steps up to the plate and truly tries to help. And personally, he seems to be proving he will stay on message. Don’t join the hate and attack and try to remain on target, Jobs and Economy. You do have to hand it to Romney, he step up to first base today and I do believe with Romney he will hit that home run out of the park.

    = = = = = = =

    Of course it is. BUT: Muslim terrorists have been known to embed messages in child porn. Some say it’s because porn servers are supposedly well defended against intrusion (and police snooping). It’s also true that Islam permits WHATEVER ACTION IS NECESSARY to “defend Islam” (and under the twisted thinking of “Mo’Ham,Ed” and his followers, infidels who refuse to convert are mocking/ defying/ injuring Allah, which is of course an attack upon Islam, which of course necessitates killing them to “in defense of Islam”!) So, “hiding” messages in porn means you have to look at the porn to get the message, but it’s OK because you’re defending Islam. See how easy that was? Lastly, a Muslim jihadi planning to sacrifice his life to kill infidels KNOWS he will go straight to heaven — the Koran says those who die “fighting in the cause of Allah” are forgiven ALL their sins.

    Islam: a “religion” of, by, and for perverts, pedophiles, and homicidal maniacs!!!

    No reason for Romney to make a visit such as this. It garners him no votes, and gives a temporary platform for ignorant commentary. Romney isn’t going to carry more than 10% of the black vote, there’s no reason to highlight that fact. Time is better spent with upwardly mobile minority voters to show there is a way to get off that Democrat plantation. Education, hard work, and saying no to a violent misogynistic culture can lead to success for any man or woman of any color. The last thing a poor urban community needs is another handout, another tie down to cultural dependency that destroys self reliance.

    It’s absolutely astounding that blacks resist vouchers that would allow their kids to receive a much better education while black “leaders” wouldn’t allow their own kids in those schools in 1000 years. These stupid blacks actually prefer to pay teachers unions salaries and pensions rather than use the tax money to better educate their kids. The race merchants are keeping the con of these ignorant people and the average black kid is paying for it. Same thing on abortion: millions of black kids have been terminated thru abortion and the KKK must be having a wet dream. The KKK could never hope to kill the number of blacks that blacks themselves kill thru the encouragement of abortion by white limo liberals. Margaret Sanger is laughing her ass off in Hell as blacks decimate their own race thru Sanger directed eugenics. This demonstrates the power of school based propaganda.

    Philadelphia is doomed.

    What has kept had kept it viable had been its gigantic Catholic system, which is finally shutting down for lack of funds. When taxpayers no longer have a way to get their children out of the general population correctional facilities which pass for public schools in Philadelphia, it’s game over.

    Now, this explains the racist fanaticism we see in the above article. The people complaining about Romney are depending on their control of the Federal government to effect the taxation without representation of the people they have driven out of the city and out of the state.

    They have destroyed their own communities, and rely on the Federal government to drag other people’s tax dollars back to the cities they have ruined. This explains why they react to 2012 Republicans the way Southern slaveholders reacted to 1860 Republicans. The economic underpinning of their way of life is threatened.

    Exactly right Lou! The silence of the media on the Catholic lawsuit should tell you that the President does NOT value religion. Especially the catholics and the evangelicals. Do you think Obama will sit down with Rick Warren again before the election? Just think Rick could have a muslim and a mormon sitting on either side of him. Good Optics for sure!

    West Philly is becoming like Detroit, eventually you run out of money because everyone is on the government teat.

    Odd, they never seem to get to that point in all their protest speeches.

    Bill Cosby made reference to it and was chastised for speaking the truth! He wasn’t a politician and dependent upon the chastisers for their vote.

    It’s that old definition of insanity thing – keep doing the same thing over and over but expect a different result.

    Even though the evidence is all around her that what they’ve been trying for the last 50 years hasn’t worked, she doesn’t want to even listen to Mitt Romney or any other new ideas. Forget “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”, how about “What’s the Matter with Philadelphia?” And especially, “What’s the Matter with Detroit?” Years of electing incompetent, corrupt politicians mostly because they’re black will do that to you. But that’s what you’re going to get if you don’t look outside the Democratic Party.

    I agree w/ Donh that it Romney needs to go into the inner cities and offer some solutions to the destruction and hopelessness that Leftist Leadership has proffered.

  • richard40

    So let me get this.

    Repubs are bad because they never visit black neighborhoods and dont want to hear black concerns.
    Romney visits a black neighborhood to hear out black concerns and they say “personally offended” “It’s not appreciated here,””speak his garbage.”

    If any black person in this country beleives that gov, or the repub party, is not serving them well, they only need to look at these 2 completely contradictory positions to find one reason why.

    The dems have no reason to give a hoot about you because they know you are foolish enough to vote for them even if they do nothing whatever to earn that vote, other than giving you a meaningless platitude occasinally. And when any repub tries to visit you and see if they can do anything for you, even though by your clear voting patterns you have never done anything for them, you turn them away and berate them for trying to do the right thing and reach out. Is it any wonder that you are ignored by both parties, while both hispanics and asians (who make sure that they are a truly winnable constituency by either party) are constantly courted.

    I’m glad Mr. Romney went to West Philly, where I went to college, and he should go to other inner city areas. Then it will be hard for the media to ignore the stupidly that is all to often local politics. In America we are supposed to be tolerant of other’s views; that is our cultural heritage. Ranging Elephants, a minority GOP organization, talks about how minorities have many of the same concerns that whites have, but GOP politicians never extend the hand to that community and discuss their mutual concerns. Good for Romney, he had learned what other GOP candidates have not. Dan Bongino, Republican and a former member of the Presidential Secret Service contingent for Bush and Obama, is running for the US Senate seat in MD by doing what Romney has done.

    The GOP needs to re-open the dialog with the minority community. Re-open, you say. Well, the Democrats were the party of Jim Crow and the KKK and MLK was a Republican as were many African-Americans. The GOP put the Civil Rights Act over the top, not Democrats. And it is apparent that the Democratic Party has no respect for the minority communities, since they feel they must have to buy the vote with their promise of free handouts and little personal responsibility. It takes a strong will for people not to give into such tactics. But that is the open secret in our county.

    It is high time for Republicans to campaign for all the people’s votes and let the chips fall where they may. Again good for Romney.

    “It’s not appreciated here,” she said. “It is absolutely denigrating for him to come in here and speak his garbage.”

    Denigrating? Say What. This is one of the reasons America is questioning all many others are like this person. They too, have the right to vote. This person says, “speak his garbage” who did she learn this from and because of her choice of words, I doubt if she will be a Romney voter, and without saying a Republican voter.

    Madaline G. Dunn, 78, who said she has lived here for 50 years and volunteers at the school, said she is “personally offended” that Romney would visit her neighborhood.

    And please pray she doesn’t volunteer her teaching services. Possibly a Cafeteria Worker or a mentor. We certainly know who Obama’s mentor is.

    Dunn would be one of those who would congregate in The Trinity Church, listening to Wright. She is the Old School people who did see Racism and she is hurt. Hurt so terribly that there will never be another recourse for her. This is what bad feeling do to people with no faith and no God. Because many Blacks have laid it down at the Cross. They will not forget and no one is expecting them too. But they do forgive, we all forgive and we are tired of this constantly brick hitting us over the head, with their anger.

    We get it but this is not the time, this is a new time, and I doubt if Dunn realizes the good in people. Every people not just those of her race. Sad and pathetic. And her feelings are set in Stone.

    HMMM, wonder if Nutter is a contender for VEEP. This mayor is no better, despite his education, than the previous scammers that ran the city. Not a 50% graduation level, and God Forbid, someone should ask that these people want more for themselves. To be honest, I’m tired of living in this state and seeing my tax dollars go down the toilet of 3 cities that have been under DEM rule for over 50 years. Nutter showed his true colors in this interaction and he is no better than the rest, and that includes one mayor who burned down part of the city.

    all of the complaints you have about the people in west philly is a consequence of them adopting an economic system that rewards you on the basis of how needy you can make yourself.

  • AuVox

    Governor Romney wasn’t out pressing the flesh for the cameras. He was in a closed-door meeting for an educational roundtable to hear concerns from those closest to the problems.

    Clearly, from the quotes in the story, those from the neighborhood aren’t interested in keeping any kind of an open mind. Too bad–the last time Mr. Obama was anywhere nearby was in October of 2008, rallying for their votes. (Oh, he’s been back to Philly since, and recently–at the center city Hyatt begging for money from rich donors.)

    Mr. Romney knows he’s not going to get votes from the West Philadelphia community. But he’s there looking for insight into their concerns anyway. So which candidate is actually acting like someone who cares?

  • GrandmaC

    Absolutely disgusting. Obviously, this is going to be a black/white election. Romney would have been blamed if he did not attempt to go visit black neighborhoods.

    Racism is a term that only blacks can use against whites. Ebonics rules.

    If there is evidence of other racism, the media doesn’t report it. TV crews ignore it.

    This place is looking more and more like a third-world country. Remember those?

    Democrat policies run amok.

    At some point, the black community is going to begin understanding the truth. Right now, they are “hearing the truth” but turn and look over at Brothers Al and Jesse to see if they are nodding in approval. Pretty soon, they are going to quit looking over at Al and Jesse…because they will see for themselves..that they have been living on the black victim Plantation.

    The best thing that could happen to west Philly and the welfare breed that lives there is for a B-52 to accidentally drop a low yield nuke on it and do some sanitizing.
