Eggheads and African-Americans!

Whatever happened to the “Big Tent” party?  It looks like Hillary Clinton, and her team, don’t consider the Democratic Party to be that anymore.  Wow.  Does that mean I have to turn in my Registered Democrat card . . . because, I’m not a working class white, without a college education?  I’m not a female either (remember, I’m your Uncle Rave) – her other target demographic.

What does that say about her?  What does that say about the people who have voted for her?

For me, to answer the first, it’s further proof that she’s perfectly comfortable playing the “race card”.  For obvious reasons, she denies this, but it’s becoming more and more evident.  The Jesse Jackson comparisons, the “If Obama weren’t Black . . .” comments,  the playing up the Rev. Wright issue, etc.  And now, she claims that Obama is weak with “hard working white Americans”.  Hmmm!  What’s next for this disturbing and divisive campaign?  Will Terry McAuliffe, or Paul Begala (or Bill) next refer to Obama as Barack HUSSEIN Obama?  Anything seems to go with this camp.  Desperation is never pretty.

As to the second, other than the “feminists”, who seem to be wearing blinders, who is actually voting for Hillary then?  Are these “hard working white Americans” just under-educated?  Or, is this a symptom of a persistent and pervasive racism, that still exists in this country?  There are numerous levels of racism.  It doesn’t have to be a matter of pure hatred.  Sometimes it’s more a matter of fear.  Sometimes it’s just that strange idea of superiority, or in some cases . . . inferiority (afraid of losing their perceived standing in society).  It could be any one, or any combination, of these things.  A lot of it is handed down from their parents, but all of it is based on a kind of ignorance.  I just find it strange that some professed Democrats would be comfortable with all of this.  How will people like this vote in November, if it’s Obama vs. McCain?

Fortunately, it may not be as bad as it might appear.  Some of Hillary’s apparent strong showing among this sector could be due to Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos”.  This is where Rush has asked his (Republican) listeners to vote for Hillary Clinton, either through disenguously registering as Democrats, or where registered voters could participate in either party’s primary – as in Indiana.  Rush has a keen interest in seeing Barack bloodied, and prolonging this primary process.  The longer this goes on the less John McCain has to do.  Let the Democrats beat each other up!  Rush and his conservative ilk are fully behind  this divide and conquer strategy.

Why Doesn’t Hillary see this?  Vanity?  Pride?  Or, does she see it . . . and it’s more a matter of spite?  An Obama loss in November could make her the favorite for 2012.  Just supposition!  All I know is that since I’m not African-American . . . I must be an egghead.

    A funny thing happened to Hillary on her way to the coronation–Barack Obama. Right now she is off the rails and subject to say anything. She wants the nomination and she will do anything to get it and if destroying Barack is the road to the crown so be it. I invite you to read my blog: http://www.ebonymompolitics.wordpress.com
