Would Barack Obama foment race riots to stay in the White House? An anonymous White House source (or sources) say(s) exactly that.
What exactly did the source say?
Barack H. Obama. Will he play the race card?
The reports come from the site NewsFlavor.com, and from a user calling himself “Ulsterman.” He says that one person, in a high place in the White House staff, feeds him inside information on what is going on in the White House. Whether he really has only one source, or several, no one can (or will) say independently of Mr. “Ulsterman.”
Over the last three weeks, this source (or sources) have said a number of disturbing things. (See Parts One, Two and Three of the interview between “Ulsterman” and the “Insider(s).” Warning: The “insider” uses language most fitting for the deck of a ship, language that “Ulsterman” never Bowdlerizes. Parental judgment and discretion are advised.)
The most alarming thing that the source said, is that Barack H. Obama will campaign on being the First Black President. Also that he and/or his operatives will suggest that only by voting to keep him in office can any white person show that he is not a racist.
It’s not gonna come so easy as it did in 2008, but that’s why they plan to ramp it up – the race issue. Look, you got generations of voters in this country who have been hammered with guilt for being white. Schools, television, movies…decades of this racism [model] coming at them from all sides. White guilt is very real. I’ve used it – done it myself… countless times in an election campaign. And for Barack Obama…his re-election team – they are banking on it bringing victory in 2012. Even if it means the threat of race riots. They are willing to go that far – go down that road if need be. If the Obama team can’t guilt enough of White America into voting for them in 2012 – they are just fine with trying to scare the [living daylights] out of them to do it.
Naturally, “Ulsterman” says that he doubts that any such strategy could work. So the source paints an unflattering picture of Obama. His Obama is self-obsessed and believes his own press (in magazines like People and Rolling Stone). He takes briefings (limited to fifteen minutes) while in a second-floor “office-away-from-the-office,” clad in “shorts, a t-shirt, and…flip-flops.”
[He] sold his soul for a job he can’t stand.
(In fact, Obama schedules very little time for briefings, and a lot of time for meetings with selected Cabinet members.)
How is this relevant? Simple, according to the source. Obama is not the confident, cool-under-fire world leader he pretends to be. He lives in constant terror that the public will see him for what he is (as several world leaders already seem to see already). So he covers up this fear with
absolute arrogance and when necessary, willingness to over-reach acceptable executive authority…how far [will he] go to keep the charade up, right? How far, and who is he willing to throw under that bus?
Answer: as far as he feels a need to. That would include not healing racial divisions, but making them worse.
The race card, the racial thing – whatever it’s gonna be called, it is the number one asset this administration believes it has to win in 2012. Their own polling data has shown that to be true over and over again. But how far are they willing to push that? Race. The charges of racism? I believe all the way if they have to. And they are gonna get people stirred up. And if Barack Obama doesn’t win re-election, watch them stand back while the riots break out, and watch them mouth the words “Burn baby burn.” I don’t think they are willing to go that far, I know it. If they can’t have America, nobody will.
Can you believe the source?
That is, can you believe that the source is what “Ulsterman” says he is, and what he says? Here’s a clue: a year ago, this same “insider” said that a major scandal would soon break. The “insider” fully expected a senior administration official to resign under a cloud on that account. This year, a scandal did break. Its name: Operation Fast and Furious, the scheme to “walk” guns into Mexico. The source says, convincingly, that Attorney General Eric Holder not only knows about it, but ordered it.
Obama plays the race card
The “Ulsterman” interviews are not the only source to say that Obama will stir up race hatred. Noel Sheppard of the Media Research Center says that the campaign has already begun. He accuses Chris Matthews, of Hardball fame, of taking part. Matthews seems to think that whites are becoming racist again. His evidence: white support for Obama-friendly politicians went down, from 43 percent to 36 percent.
This morning, Joe Schoffstall, also of MRC, filed this (Warning: More cursing-like-a-sailor):
Get ready for class warfare “All you…tea-party-[activists],” warns a protester from the Red & Anarchist Action Network at a Wisconsin Capitol singalong.
Other sources agree that Obama is in serious danger of failing of re-election. David A. Patten of Newsmax.com quotes Matt Towery, CEO of InsiderAdvantage, as predicting that Obama will run a very negative campaign. Unemployment is higher now than it was when he took office. None of his policies have worked.
Jonathan Emord, at Newswithviews.com, says that Obama is on the defensive. Not only have his grand plans not worked, but the message of limited government now looks more attractive to more voters than ever before.
The above suggest that Obama is now desperate, and will grow more desperate with time. Desperate enough to use race to hustle votes? Or worse? Only time will tell. Thankfully, even the so-called Insider cannot know whether such a strategy could hope to succeed.
