"The Muslim card" and "the race card" are already in play, and they are trump cards.

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Let's not play the "Muslim card"

By this time, mid-day on Super Tuesday, in the presidential primary season it should be obvious to everyone except white Ivy League liberals and Hollywood's white liberal illiterates that the race card and the Muslim card are already out on the table. They're being played everywhere, not just in the USA but also in Canada, England, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia, Morocco, and southern Europe.

Baruch Obama is "The Black Candidate" in the eyes of American blacks who will not tolerate his appearing to be sympathetic to white citizens: white people should just try going to an Obama rally in an urban black enclave, and see if they can "feel the love". White people should recognize that there is much anti-white hatred in the American black community, none of which white people have done anything to deserve, and that much of it is generated by the race baiting of people like Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson. The Black Congressional Caucus, a hotbed of anti-white hatred, regards Obama as their political property. Can you imagine an Obama white house with the likes of Al Sharpton and Kwesi Mfune in the cabinet? If you think black people aren't racist, when was the last time you saw a black charitable organization that supported the needs of unfortunate little white children? Race is on the table, it just can't be discussed by anyone who is white.

Baruch Obama is also "The Muslim-Appeasing Candidate", if not "The Completely Muslim Candidate", and that is because American black Muslims will not tolerate anything less. If you are a black American politician, you cannot avoid being influenced by black Islamist organizations (e.g., the NOI, the New Black Muslims, black Orthodox Sunni Islam). This means that Obama has the single largest group of American-born, anti-American Muslims holding a gun to his head, at least figuratively, in the community of black Muslims who were recruited and indoctrinated in prisons and jails all over the USA and who control many square miles of the streets in most of America's cities and inner suburbs. These people hate white non-Muslim Americans. They don't even apologize. Islam is on the table, it just can't be discussed by non-Muslims.

So, what can we do? Who can we vote for? "The Anti-Obama" among Democrats is Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton pushed Bill Clinton into cutting the US military almost in half during their 8 years in the white house. Hillary and Bill hold the military in astonishingly low regard.Their overt disdain and disrespect for military officers, even general officers, can still be seen today. I am astonished that Hillary allows it to show, but maybe even she, consummate liar that she is, cannot conceal it. Hillary and Bill turned the US military into a gigantic social experiment that accommodated the whims of liberals, minorities, feminists and homosexuals (we are still amazed by the Clinton gays in the military policy of "don't ask; don't tell"). Hillary and Bill chased many of our best military officers out of the service into early retirement. Hillary and Bill pushed many politically correct minions into the FBI and the CIA, and those agencies have been ruined ever since. I have to believe that dozens of Secret Service agents retired during the Clinton years just because they couldn't stand the thought of taking a bullet for a Clinton or a Clinton crony. Hillary Clinton is unable to use the term "Muslim terrorist" in a sentence. Hillary Clinton is not the antidote for Baruch Obama.

The only safe presidential candidate that patriotic Americans will have to vote for will be a Republican, not a vote-splitting 3rd party candidate, and certainly not a space cadet oddball like Ron Paul who would do away with the military and only engage foreign countries economically (at precisely the time when America is retreating from economic prominence in the world, at the same time that Americans need to stop borrowing on equity to spend money in a consumer economy focusing on imported shoddy goods and outsourced services nobody even cares about, much less needs). So, where does race or religion enter into the Republican party? It enters in at the point of popular opinion where the Republican party is regarded as being loathed for being more white, more masculine, more corporate, insufficiently anti-male, more Judeo-Christian, and more gentile than is politically correct. It is the party that still regards western civilization as "The" civilization. It is the party that is not gay enough, not black enough, not Muslim enough, not world community enough, not femi-nazi enough.

And these are the cards that are being played in American politics, and that surround the Obama candidacy.

It is not astonishing that these cultural winds are blowing so strongly, but it is astonishing that so many white Americans seem blindly unaware of them. White Americans may well find themselves ruled by an oppressive government that doesn't care about representing them because they aren't black and they aren't Muslim. Has it become somehow wrong or forbidden to consider and discuss the needs and rights of white non-Muslims in the United States? Could the needs and rights of white non-Muslims, an ever-shrinking American minority, even be addressed by an Obama white house?
