AP Keeps Pushing ‘Racist Campaign’ Angle

From the Democrat Party owned and operated propaganda organ, the Associated Press:

Obama braces for race-based ads

By CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer Mon Jun 23

WASHINGTON – A presidential candidate who’s named Hussein and wears a turban? A building that’s called the White House but run by a black guy?

Those political images and ideas already have found their way onto TV airwaves and campaign buttons, possible harbingers of racially tinged messages in a general election involving the first black candidate to head a major party’s ticket…

The Obama campaign vows to fight back fiercely and fast, not repeating John Kerry’s mistake of waiting to respond to the 2004 "Swift Boat" ads that Democrats saw as a smear of his military record

Obama adviser David Axelrod said the Democrat’s campaign will be on high alert for code words or innuendo meant to play on voters’ racial sentiments. "We’re going to be aggressive about pushing back on anything that we feel is inappropriate or misleading," he said.

It’s not enough for McCain to say he cannot control independent groups airing racially charged ads on his behalf, Axelrod said, noting that the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" was independent of President Bush’s campaign.

"We’ve seen this movie before," he said. "And we’re not going to be passive in the face of those kinds of tactics."

Racially charged criticism of Obama already has surfaced in several states.

Shortly before North Carolina’s May 6 primary, the state Republican Party aired a TV ad linking Democratic candidates to Obama, who was described as "too extreme" because of his ties to the retired Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr

In South Dakota, a TV station briefly aired an ad that was edited to show Obama saying, "we are no longer a Christian nation, we are also a Muslim nation." It omitted his saying, in the same speech, that the United States is not solely a Christian nation.

The ad, which included a photo of Obama wearing a turban as part of a traditional outfit given to him in Africa, concluded with a man saying: "It’s time for people of faith to stand against Barack Hussein Obama." A group called the Coalition Against Anti-Christian Rhetoric paid for the ad, which stations quickly dropped after the Obama campaign complained…

By the way, what part of this is not true?

A presidential candidate who’s named Hussein and wears a turban? A building that’s called the White House but run by a black guy?

Those political images and ideas already have found their way onto TV airwaves and campaign buttons, possible harbingers of racially tinged messages in a general election involving the first black candidate to head a major party’s ticket.

Is not Mr. Obama’s middle name Hussein? Was it not the Associated Press itself that photographed (though hid) Mr. Obama in a turban? A detail first uncovered by S&L.

Racially charged criticism of Obama already has surfaced in several states.

This is simply a lie from the Associated Press, albeit probably written for them by Obama’s handler George Axelrod.

Neither ad they cite was racist.

For how is it "racist "to point out that Mr. Obama’s "spiritual mentor" hates this country? How is it "racist" to show Mr. Obama in an outfit he chose to don and to quote his own words?

This is just an attempt on the part of the AP to create a "record" of racism where none exists. Just like they have relentlessly lied about what the Switboat Veterans did to John Kerry. (Also known as telling the truth.)

It should be obvious to all by now that the Associated Press are simply shameless shills for the Democrat Party and whatever candidate they are promoting at the moment.

The AP’s "journalists" happily prostitute themselves and eagerly rewrite even the most recent history to please their masters at the DNC.

This article, along with the rest of the Greek chorus of "racism" articles over the last few days make it abundantly clear that the AP and the rest of our establishment media are in total lockstep with their DNC overlords.

And why not? They clearly take their marching orders from them.

It is also now beyond question that the earlier red herrings (the "whitey "tape, etc.) which originated with Democrats like Larry Johnson, and the "Fight The Smears" website and now this plethora of "racism" stories from our watchdog media are all part of a carefully coordinated campaign to inoculate Mr. Obama from any and all criticism.

That’s our watchdog media at work.
