Former Obama Campaign Co-Chair Calls Biden’s Remarks: “Racial Viciousness” (Video)

Former Obama Campaign Co-Chair Artur Davis called Joe Biden’s recent remarks “racial viciousness.”
In North Carolina this week Biden told an audience that Republicans will “put y’all back in chains.” Davis spoke with Wolf Blitzer yesterday.

Artur Davis will speak at the RNC convention in Tampa this year.
The Washington Post reported:

Former congressman Artur Davis, who officially seconded President Obama’s nomination at the 2008 Democratic convention, said Wednesday that he will cap a remarkable political metamorphosis by addressing the Republican convention this month — calling for Obama’s defeat.

Davis, 44, who served in the House as a Democrat from Alabama from 2003 to 2011, said in a telephone interview that he has been given a speaking slot at the Aug. 27-30 Republican convention in Tampa. He said he was not sure yet of the day on which he would speak.

    Former Obama Co-Chair from 2008 Joins Romney Campaign

    [In 2008, he was one of the biggest champions for Barack Obama,
    even serving as an Obama campaign co-chairman and seconding
    Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

    But that was then and this is now.

    Today, Artur Davis, a former four-term Democratic congressman from
    Alabama is now supporting Republican Mitt Romney for president, and
    is joining him on the campaign trail in Arlington, Va.

    Just last month in Falls Church, Va., Davis gave a rousing address to
    the Northern Virginia Tea Party, rallying the crowd to defeat his former
    ally Obama.]

    Thank You Mr, Artur!!

    Mr, Artur = Mr. Davis 🙂

    My suggestion to them all is this: “If America, and those of us who
    are unhyphenated Americans are such a drain on their well-being–why
    don’t they follow the example of Marcus Garvey and leave? They can
    take Obama and his Marxist-Leninist minions, who use color of skin as
    currency to further their diabolical agendas, with them.

    It will be much more harmonal and serendipitous for them. Every morning
    will be a fresh day, free of we who cause them such stress. They will no
    longer be burdened by that which they view as our ignorance. Obama
    can be emperor for life and Michelle can be the fashion plate she always
    dreamed of being, in her jungle animal-skin wardrobe.

    And those of us who love America will be free of their malcontent.”

    Amen Mychal!!

    at least this guys got guts. What Biden said was race baiting as clear as clear can be. I am disheartened by all the republicans who will not say that when asked. C’mon guys.

    I’m Black And I Think … Clearly – From My Vault

    [I challenge these necrophagous ghouls who seek to make gain through immiseration to tell the truth. How many Americans are aware that in New Orleans over 3,000 freed slaves owned slaves? The fact is large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves.

    How many are aware successful businessman and cotton farmer William Ellison derived a major source of his income from being a “slave breeder” – a practice that was looked down upon throughout the South? Yet Ellison, a successful black businessman and slaveowner, secretly practiced it.

    It would seem reasonable that if the reparation harlots were interested in truth, they would have these facts available as part of their suit. It is easy to bastardize and label as evil whites. But where is the vilification of the thousands of blacks who also practiced slavery?

    The liberal media is quick to point to race-baiters as leaders in the black community. Therein I believe lies a major part of the problem: The black community is not a community unto itself, it is part of America.

    Blacks do not need leaders defined by the media. They have them. At present they are President Bush and his administration. They have 535 total representatives being divided as prescribed state by state as do we all. They have governors and lobbyists, as do we all.

    I think it is time for Americans who happen to be black to divest themselves of the “African hyphen American” foolishness. In truth, blacks today are no more African than I am mezzo-soprano. Teresa Heinz-Kerry is more authentic African-American than Jesse Jackson, she having been born in Mozambique.]

    Now that’s a Big Tent!
    Good for the GOP having him address the convention. Smart.

  • Babsy

    I cannot imagine any self respecting person EVAH votin’ fer a dimmoCRAP!!!!!!! I can only hope that Mr. Davis has seen the light and will never again return to the dark side. I also eagerly await his speech. It should be a doozy!

    Black Like Us: The Race Clownery of Obama-Biden

    by Michelle Malkin
    August 15, 2012

    [Biden’s stunt also echoes Hillary Clinton’s infamous black church minstrel performances in which she unleashed a mortifying Southern-spiced-with-street accent to show her street solidarity: “For the last five years, we’ve had No. Power. At. All. And that makes a big difference, because when you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation. An’ yew know what ah’m talkin’ about.” At an event with race-hustler Al Sharpton, she poured it on thicker: “I’m afraid I’m gonna lift up the rug, and I’m goin’ to see so much stuff uh-nder thar. … You know, what is it about us always havin’ to clean up after people? … But this is not just goin’ to be pickin’ up socks off the floor. This is goin’ to be cleanin’ up the government.”

    At least the only thing she manufactured was her patronizing dialect. Remember candidate Barack Obama’s 2007 Selma, Ala., speech? To court black voters, Obama claimed that President Kennedy had sponsored the airlift in Africa responsible for bringing his family to the U.S. and asserted that Selma’s 1965 Bloody Sunday demonstration brought his parents together and led to his birth. Of course, JFK didn’t take office until two years after Obama’s father arrived in the U.S., and the president was born four years before Bloody Sunday.

    Obama-Biden 2012: Never let facts, civility or
    scruples get in the way of a racist racial pander.]

    Obama Magic Gone, Just Check Indiana

    Romney Up Big in Indiana

    Four years ago, President Obama became the first Democrat since 1964 to win Indiana. He looks unlikely to repeat that feat.

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds challenger Mitt Romney picking up 51% of the vote while the president earns just 35%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    The Indiana survey of 400 Likely Voters was conducted July 31-August 1, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

    As Indiana goes, so does most of the Middle eastern states.

    What amazes me is that the supposed first black President Obama and his white house staff and surrogates thinks VP Biden’s statement is okay?

    They think this helps their campaign. Who is smoking the dong now?

    i’m extremely proud of any Democrat who stands up to this administration,
    or any other, but thus one in particular, due to the dominance and control
    it has over most everything going o in the world today..

    it’s been a long time since i thought kindly of what my ex-party ‘USED’ to
    be like, and albeit took long enough, thank you again Mr. Davis, as i have
    yet to hear much from our present Congressional representatives, that is,
    aside from Mr. West anyways..

    that has to be the most ignorant post you’ve ever written..

    Slave narratives and Uncle Tom’s Cabin

    [Uncle Tom’s Cabin had a tremendous impact. The character Uncle Tom
    is an African American who retains his integrity and refuses to betray his fellow slaves at the cost of his life. His firm Christian principles in the face of his brutal treatment made him a hero to whites. In contrast, his tormenter Simon Legree, the Northern slave-dealer turned plantation owner, enraged them with his cruelty. Stowe convinced readers that the institution of slavery itself was evil, because it supported people like Legree and enslaved people like Uncle Tom. Because of her work, thousands rallied to the anti-slavery cause.]

    @bg..I’m from Virginia and Wilder did a good job

    He didn’t let the R or D interfere with the good of the people

    Considering he was a (D) ,I really didn’t have many complaints

  • donh

    Your not making any sense BG…Whatever noble features were meant to be attributed to the gray haired old plantation butlers like Uncle Tom 150 years ago , these Uncle Remus characters who nannied the rich white children , cooked and cleaned in the big house , got some education and nice clothing, came to be seen as ” sell outs ” . The house negros achieved their higher class in life by keeping the chained negros in line, spying on run away plans, and being loyal to the master of the house….just like the Kapos in the concentration camps.

    P. B. S. Pinchback,became Gov. becuase of a scandal(so yes ,he was the first)

    oh, okay, sort of like Lyndon Johnson.. j/k!!

    oh btw also not sure (due to the source being
    Wikipedia), but it stated he only served for 35
    days.. but then again, it states:


    [It was not until 1990 that another African American was elected as governor of any U.S. state. In 1990, Douglas Wilder of Virginia became the second African-American state governor (and the first to be elected to office). Deval Patrick of Massachusetts was elected governor in 2006 and took office in January 2007. David Paterson of New York became the fourth African-American governor on March 17, 2008, when he succeeded to office following the resignation of Eliot Spitzer. Wilder, Patrick and Paterson are all Democrats, reflecting the realignment of most African Americans since the Great Depression and especially passage of federal civil rights legislation, pushed through with the aid of President Lyndon B. Johnson.]

    Since the similar realignment in the southern states among white residents who have been voting for Republican national and statewide candidates, two Republican governors have been elected of minority status: the governors of Louisiana and South Carolina, Bobby Jindal, and Nikki Haley, respectively, who are both of Indian (East Asian) descent.

    re: Huey P. Long??

    haven’t got a clue.. 😀


  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Well… we can fully expect that, at the next leadership meeting of the NAACP, Artur Davis’ name will be on the top of the list of black people that will be officially “de-blacked” and formally kicked out of the African American race. As such, Artur Davis and his children (and all subsequent descendants) are no longer allowed to check the “Black” box on race question that appear routinely on various applications, surveys, etc. and are forever forbidden from calling themselves “black people”. They’re also denied the protection of the Injustice Department because they’ll no longer be Holder’s people.

    Bet you all didn’t know that, did you?

    My all time fav. campaign commercial..Edwin Edwards

    “I will take from you (steal) less money than my opponent” > some parrish official from St. Tammany

    He had charts and graphs to prove it…
    No one blinked an eye…not one

    HE WON…we get the government we deserve

  • donh

    BG I agree there are ” Quislings ” …People who sell out their own kind, their own family for personal gain… . When Joe Biden rattles the slave chains before a group of blacks…that is behaving like a post Civil War southern plantation master trying to mentally influence the freedmen from up and leaving the plantation ….trying to keep them clinging to sharecropping the cotton fields instead of pioneering their new found freedoms and moving up north. That Obama supports what Biden is doing shows what kind of black man he really is.

    Like they aren’t already chained to the Democratic plantation. Massa Juice-box Joey isn’t about to grant them their freedom.

  • i think joe biden’s remarks were very disrespectful to white people and conservatives of every race.

  • shelly99032

    Is it just me, but in that split screen w Biden, was that John Roberts sitting down on the right in the blue shirt? If it wasn’t, he’s got a twin. It sure looked like John Roberts.

  • Ghost


    No. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (and traitor to the Constitution) is much older, and his body language is different.
    also, it would’ve been noted everywhere had Roberts been there.
    even State media wouldn’t’ve overlooked that- they probably would’a praised it.

    You scared me. it’s already bad, it doesn’t need to get any worse.

    aside: Roberts infamously said it’s not his job to correct The People’s decision in an election.
    he conveniently forgot that in our Constitution’s system of checks and balances it IS his job to correct the UN-Constitutional decisions of those same elected officials. Yes, I hate him now.

    My Heavenly Dream would be if Romney replaced ol’ sleepyhead Super Commie Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg with Conservative Champion black female Janice Rogers-Brown. Ohhh, I drool at the thought of that fight!
