Proof that Words Matter



You have got to be kidding me. I was listening to NPR’s Talk of the Nation and Bill Cunningham was explaining his use of Barak Obama’s middle name. On the show Bill suggest that the use of Barak’s middle name was his way of honoring Sen. Obama in the same vein that one would say John F. Kennedy, or Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Now, how does one refer to Sen. Obama as “Now we have a hack, Chicago-style Daley politician who is picturing himself as change. When he gets done with you, all you’re going to have in your pocket is change”. Then go out of his way to highlight Sen. Obama’s ethnicity with this rant: “he great prophet from Chicago takes the stand and the world leaders who want to kill us will simply be singing Kumbaya together around the table with Barack Obama.”

This is the same man who said on his radio show:

"it would be a shock" if Barack Mohammed Hussein Obama can be elected the president of this country in these difficult terrorist times."

Yet, Bill Cunningham would have us believe that his use of Hussein, Sen. Obama’s middle name, was not a slight of hand insult to disparage Obama’s ethnicity and connect Obama to Islam. Of course the righties were up in arms using their usual straw man argument about being PC. “What’s wrong with mentioning his middle name,” they whine.

Imagine if you will that you are having a heated discussion with an unfriendly individual and in the middle of the verbal exchange the gentlemen pulls out a gun and he places it on the table in front of you. To any sane person, this would be considered an act of intimidation. You would not accept an explanation that he pulled the gun out because he wanted to show it to you because you seem like the type that enjoyed guns. And the fact that conservatives are insulting our intelligence with their defense of Bill Cunningham, further demonstrates why no sane black American should be a part of the Republican Party.

    Truthfully, I would only ask that Mr. Radio Show just not be a coward.

    I don't like when people hide behind, "the world is too politically correct", when they are clearly racists.

    If that's what you believe, out with it then. It's cowardly to try and hide.

    But of course, losers like that guy know the hardcore bigot population is shrinking in the power and forcefullness they once wielded.
