    My question is, would madest post a video of Barack Obama saying "Who likes black people?" to a crowd of black people?

    Choose the one that applies.

    Yes: No: Barack is a Democrat. `Course not!

    This is a slippery slope, but hear me out.

    Is someone`s right to run for office worth the risk that a person like this would be elected to run your country?

    If the people are stupid, should they still have the right to elect a stupid leader? You`re basically relying on the fact that there are more non-stupid people than stupid ones.

    Can there not be some mediocre level of screening that filters out the crazies? You might say that it defeats the purpose of democracy, which is somewhat true, but your form of democracy is pretty ineffective to begin with.

    @Lazy:

    Originally, it was only the land owners who could vote. It wasn`t until we changed who votes, that the crazies started running the country. Well, there WAS Franklin Pierce, but other than that, the first 20 or so presidents were pretty good leaders.

    Hmmmmmmmm. Maybe let`s return to our roots?

    ...and before you guys freak out, I don`t own any land, so I am exempting myself.

    @ Auburnjunkie: I don`t think that`s been confirmed yet, but even though she`s proven herself to be a bigot, I`ll give her the benefit of the doubt. Just because she`s a batcrap crazy fundie who thinks it`s God`s will for her to be president (Rick Perry thinks the same thing....different gods?) doesn`t automatically make her a racist. Now, the fact that she didn`t think about how this would sound to the public without saying the entire name of the band makes at least some criticism towards her justifiable.

    Bachmann`s despicable, but even I have a hard time believing she`d risk saying "who likes white people?"
    It looks like Liberals are starting to borrow Fox "News" and "News"Max tacttics to discredit candidates. What a shame. it`s entirely unnecessary.

    Ron Paul is a religious zealot who would run this country like a Christian theocracy. He wants mothers who have an abortion tried for murder and the "liberty" he speaks of is to only be enjoyed only by heterosexuals. He is the proverbial wolf in sheep`s clothing. Enlighten yourself.

    I think Bachmann puts her foot in her mouth too, this is not meant as an excuse for her.

    What I don`t like about Ron Paul is that he would leave Israel defenseless, end all foreign aid, and turn America back into an isolationist country that doesn`t give a poo about the rest of the world. He would also end the scheduling of all drugs, making all the narcotics freely available to everyone and top of that end all liquor, gun, and tobacco related laws and taxes.

    Ron Paul is not a republican, hell he`s not even a libertarian, he`s an anarchist !

    chimmeychang: God is a trinity, that started out as The Father, The Word, and The Holy Spirit. The Word became flesh (Jesus), John 1:14, and after he was resurrected he returned to heaven about a month later.

    As Christians we now say, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost is the trinity of God.

    It`s ok if you don`t understand it, others don`t either, It`s a matter of faith and a `miracle` even to those of us that do believe.

    jtrebowski: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.” - Barrack Obama "Dreams from my father"

    At Columbia, Obama disapproved of what he called “half-breeds” who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks. And yet after college, he once fell in love with a white woman, only to push her away when he concluded he would have to assimilate into her world, not the other way around. - "Dreams from my father"

    "And yet, even as I imagined myself following Malcom`s call, one line in the book stuck with me. He spoke of a wish he once had, the wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged." - Barrack Obama "Dreams from my father"

    @CJ: "I ceased to advertise my mother’s race..." Yeah? So what? He was a mixed -race kid tryimg to find his identity. What`s your point?
    Who was your second paragraph written by?
    Thirdly...let me share with you the entire quote: "As I imagined myself following Malcolm X`s call, one line in his book stayed me. He spoke of his wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother at some uncharted border"
    CJ...You;re welcome to your own opinions, but not your own facts. You and some other cons will never realize that, therefor making us lefties very very happy. Have a great night!

    jtrebowski: That doesn`t change the fact that Obama found Malcom X`s quote of .."his wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged." had "stayed with him" and that he actually contemplated severing all ties to his whiteness, including his mother.

    The only reason someone would think like that is if they hated the race that is a part of themselves and that`s a very telling aspect of Obama`s psyche.

    jtrebowski: Are you trying to tell me that listening to Rev. `God damn America` Wright, for many years, was a positive change in that regard ?

    It doesn`t take a psychologist to read his own damn book and listen to his thoughts written therein.

    It doesn`t take a genius to know that if you struggle with your own identity and attempt to reject half of it, that it might mean you`ve got unresolved issues that will affect your decision making.

    Not unlike Bill Clinton`s upbringing lead him to the womanizing he did.

    Oh by the way, it turns out this video was a misleading hack job. Here and Here

    It had been raining, the people that stayed were wet and Bachmann said, "Who likes WET people ?" immediately after she said that she said, "Yeah, that`s right. Because we have the God of the winds and the rain don`t we?", that key part was edited out.

    I know I am a broken record but this is a shining example of how opinion media distracts and divides. There are 5 to 10 of these partisan non-stories floating around each week. For this one some jackass on the left puts out a deceptively edited video claiming Michele Bachmann said "Who likes white people." The right goes crazy and says she was talking about The White People Soul Band???? The left screams racism. Then Crakrjak goes on a full day diatribe of talking points trying unsuccessfully to prove that Obama is a racist. The old Pee Wee Herman "I know you are but what am I?" strategy. And then the truth comes out that she actually said "Who likes wet people" referring to the soaked crowd. This is exactly why I stopped watching cable news, looking at fact check sites and listening to partisan talk radio. It turns people against their fellow man when we should be coming together. Worse opinion media brainwashes people into being angry parrots.

    Crakr, you might want to actually try READING the books you just "quoted," rather than relying on those stupid chain e-mails that get passed around about him.

    A little more context and a lot less re-wording can go a long way.

    So now we know why this was taken down. The person who stole this clip then edited with malicious intent to smear Michell Bachman realised his error (moral crisis or realised he broke copyright and libel laws?) and took it down. He has apologised.

    Of course the white Democrats who suggest that a black person is thick or mentally ill because he supports the Republicans (i.e. the party that didn`t start the KKK, didn`t have lynch mobs, the party of MLK, the party that didn`t have Senator Byrd in congress until his death) are racists. Not that Janine Garuffalo`s racism will be shouted out by the legacy media, and more than the racist attack on Kenneth Gladny was.

    markust: I heard conflicting reports early on and decided to let them iron themselves out before commenting on Bachmann herself.

    At the very beginning of my comments on Obama I qualified my statements, saying they were NOT in defense of Bachmann, maybe you missed that.

    Yes, I altered the subject, it happens, deal with it.

    Obama confessed his own racism and self-hate in his book, he felt shunning his whiteness was the only way to truly be `black`, which is a shame. No one should be made to believe they must give up part of their racial identity in order to `fit in`, that`s the sort of hogwash that keeps minorities segregated.

    Randomxnp, did you skip junior high history class? All of the South (liberals and conservatives) moved to the Democratic party in opposition of the Republican Lincoln. Do you honestly believe the South, which had 11 states secede from the nation, was in the same party as Lincoln? After the Civil Rights movement Martin Luther King would have moved to the Democratic party. It was only after Civil Rights that conservatives started moving to the Republican party, where Nixon was able to use racism (The Southern Strategy) to win his election. The reason you do not know this is Glenn Beck brainwashed you with the lie that the Democrats are the racists when in truth the whole white South, during the slavery years, was Democrats - the whole white South. Liberals and Conservatives during this time all supported slavery mostly for social standings. As far as the KKK, racists started that - there was no party affiliate.

    From Conservapedia:

    The Southern strategy was the method Richard Nixon used to win support for the Republican Party from the south. The strategy called for courting votes from "negrophobes". The modern RNC has apologized to the NAACP for the strategy and its continued use through the 1980s and 90s.

    I wanted to make it clear that everything I was talking about below was related to the South. So when I said things like "It was only after Civil Rights that conservatives started moving to the Republican party" I meant Southern conservatives.

    Also randomxnp, I just noticed that you are from Europe. They don`t have Glenn Beck in Europe. Where did you learn these lies? Or did you recently move there?

    Obama confessed his own racism and self-hate in his book, he felt shunning his whiteness was the only way to truly be `black`, which is a shame.
    No, he said he felt PRESSURED by his peers to feel that way.

    He also said that he conflicted with that idea multiple times.

    And the book was written about a time more than twenty years ago, during a period of his life when a LOT of people go through identity crises, especially people of mixed heritage in a world that was still in the dying days of racism being the acceptable norm.

    Twenty years is a long time to change and come to accept yourself.

    You should probably READ the books you`re commenting on, like I said, rather than rely on chain mails. After all, the one "quote" you provided in your list, the second one about half-breeds, wasn`t actually IN "Dreams of my Father," it was one recent reviewer`s opinion of it.

    The other two have been taken out of contex

    markust: Democrats have been keeping inner city blacks in their back pocket through welfare, public housing, and the NAACP.

    Many blacks that actually dig their way out of grinding poverty into the middle-class, move to the suburbs, and get their children a college education, have a totally different attitude.

    That`s why Allen West, Herman Cain, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice and many others scare the democrats to death, because it shows blacks that they don`t have to be beholden to democrats and republicans aren`t the racist boogeymen they`ve been made out to be by liberals.

    Unless your are willing to aim that same criticism at atheists that have never read the whole bible, then I believe you are talking out your ass.
    There`s also a huge difference between a work of fiction and it`s authors trying to tell me how to live my life (huh, sounds like how Scientology got started now that I think about it...) and an auto-biographical work about a man whose mixed heritage lead to personal conflicts and tough decisions over the course of twenty-seven years.

    It`s comparing apples to oranges.

    That said, atheists that insult the Bible without reading it: Yes. The same standard does apply. Same as people that insult Twilight without reading it (*shudder* that was hell...).

    That ALSO said, more atheists have read your holy book than you seem to think, and picked it apart with contextually accurate quotes that are STILL bullsh*t or contradictory even in context.

    And now that I think about it, you have a bad habit of using context-less quotes and sections of a LOT of books, the Quran being one of the main examples I remember on here.

    All-in-all, I don`t think you actually read, to be honest. I think you just look up dirt on anything you don`t like and use arguments that you find online half the time.

    Either that, or you deliberately search through the books for lines you can take out of context and troll the internet with.

    Secondly, There is a great deal of literary style evidence that most of "Dreams from my father" was ghostwritten. Bill Ayers even allegedly confessed that he wrote the book to blogger Anne Leary when she ran into him buying coffee in an airport.

    Thirdly, I doubt many atheists would even touch a bible let alone read it all, if they did they certainly wouldn`t take it out of context as often as they do, unless they are just trolling.

    Excuse me. HISTORICAL fiction. It does include some true points, like the Jews escaping Egypt and the like. But other than that, burning bushes and great floods have only been seen in fantasy land since. So it`s fiction until otherwise proven true by the word of God himself, who, of course, won`t prove himself because he relies on "faith."

    Secondly, There is a great deal of literary style evidence that most of "Dreams from my father" was ghostwritten.
    If he didn`t even write it himself, then there`s even MORE reason to throw it out the window in terms of Obama`s supposed identity crises that would make him unfit to serve as president. You`re only digging a deeper hole here.

    Then you`re a moron and fooling yourself.

    More atheists used to be religious than you believe. Myself included, at one point my family tried to bring me up Christian via my preacher uncle`s guidance. Didn`t work. Read the book, thought it was bullsh*t that a piece of fiction is telling me how to live my life, and moved on with my life How I wanted to. Which has worked out pretty well, all things considered. I have a job, I`ve never broken any laws or anything. I`ve just been a poor Christian by definition of not choosing to repent for being evil just because I`m alive.

    which was written well over a hundred years after the last books of the bible ?

    Yeah, I say things that offend people. I troll, I bait people sometimes.

    That`s why I can be pretty good at catching other trolls in action.

    And you taking various quotes out of context from Obama`s book, or the Quran, is the same as me taking quotes from the bible out of context. It`s trolling, but at least I don`t do it in ignorance.

    Like I said, I don`t think you read. From the sounds of it, you just keep up to date with Donald Trump`s latest accusations and parrot his comments.

    Bill Ayers even allegedly confessed that he wrote the book to blogger Anne Leary when she ran into him buying coffee in an airport.
    And I just remembered this...

    Before, during an argument about the legitimacy of News Corp. and it`s tendency to lie and misinform viewers, you made some comment about "anything like Huff Po ... blah blah blah ... using blogs as sources?"

    Going by that, I thought blogs weren`t legitimate sources of information? But if Anne`s blog is legit enough for you to believe what she said there, why isn`t her blog legit enough to be used as a source of other information, should she provide it?

    And if HER blog is legit, what makes her`s so special? Why aren`t all blogs legit? Because she has "credentials?" I`m sure a fair number of the people that blog on Huff. Po. have credentials too.

    You go back on yourself so often it`s ridiculous. Another reason I think you troll at times.

    Altaru: It`s trolling, but at least I don`t do it in ignorance.

    So you finally admit it, took you 6 full comments, but you did admit to your trolling.

    I could easily do the same to your holy book...

    You have, and done so deliberately, but also other things, out of context. I was exposing your hypocrisy of accusing others of the same deed. Nothing was taken `out of context` in Obama`s book and you haven`t even given the slightest proof that I had. Even if "Dreams" was ghostwritten Obama still had to read and approve it, after all this was his auto-biography right ?

    I qualified my statement about what Anne Leary blogged with the word ALLEGEDLY. Look that word up, never mind I`ll do it for you.

    al·leged - adj. Represented as existing or as being as described but not so proved; supposed.

    I choose my words carefully, most of the time, it`s apparent you aren`t as adept at reading carefully.

    Brevity, concise writing is an art, few people are willing to read long diatribes. The character limit here serves as a guideline. I do go over it at times, but only as needed.

    Perhaps learning some brevity would serve you better than a 6000+ letter invective.
