Not a threat:  "Social tension could increase if conditions for the poor and disenfranchised continue to get worse."

Threat:  "Give us everything we want and do everything we say or we'll shut down the entire government."

But it is nice you self labeled with the Asinine tag, Subby.

Hey, I was wanting to get in on a good troll thread. Anybody know where I could find one?

Get it, he threatened because he's a scary black.

Surely not here. This looks on the up and up.

Nothing Obama says is helpful.
Anybody else notice that?

Lies, lies, lies and more lies.
 
2013-08-01 09:32:49 AM  
Well THAT'S a new use for the race card.

Bravo, Mr. President.

Is Obama the queen of their hive mind or something?

"Racial tensions won't get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they've got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, " he added.

Sounds like he saying that derpy, white racists will piss and moan even more about Affirmative Action.

No, it's pretty much just you.

We've been implementing his economic plans for five years now and we've still got 'groups competing for scraps from a shrinking pot.'

So how will this plan be any different?

Pass his plan or there will be worse racial tensions.  Or, there can not be.  That is option.  Why must there be racial tensions just because of disagreement over an economic plan?  Sounds like a threat to me.

Democrats have been running their economic model in Detroit for 50 years.  Massive income inequality there.
 
2013-08-01 09:35:36 AM  
If Obama had a race card it would look just like this?
 
2013-08-01 09:36:03 AM  
Why'd he make the assumption that just because income inequality grows that blacks are going to become more violent? Aren't white people also poor? Aren't hispanics also poor?

Why'd he just assume that race relations would get worse? Maybe race relations would get better as the poor turn to each other for support.

The race relations thing is a non-sequitor.

Wait, the House has passed his budget the past five years? What country have I been living in?

Obama says the peasants will revolt. Subby says let them eat cake. That totally worked out great for the wealthy last time.

FDR sent Americans of Japanese ancestry to concentration camps.  I don't think bringing him up in the context of race relations is really making a good point.

I didn't realize that relying on one industry for 50 years was a "democratic economic model"

I thought it was more of a "stupid" economic model.

This time will be different.
This time we will have a grand bargain
This time we will cut corporate taxes enough.
This time the gains will go to creating more jobs instead of lining shareholder's pockets.

Does anybody really still believe this?

What you mean putting our entire country's eggs in the home mortgage industry's basket in 2004-2008 was a bad idea too?

Was there anything in his speech that indicated a specific race would become more violent? From reading just the article, I'm having trouble connecting "Racial tensions ... could get worse" with "blacks are going to become more violent."

FDR didn't need the Crips. He had Eisenhower, McArthur, and Patton.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say subby is a middle-aged white man with a sizable beer belly who pees his pants everytime he sees a black man.

If the President talking about race upsets you, you are likely a racist.

gnosis301: I'm having trouble connecting "Racial tensions ... could get worse" with "blacks are going to become more violent."


Well, you remember all those times of racial tensions when the blacks were the aggressors, don't you.  The Wu Tang Klan, lynchings of whites, sundown laws forcing whites out of towns, the forced segregation of whites into inferior schools and housing, whites beaten when they tried to vote, MLK Jr. sniping white politicians.  American history is nothing except a long march of the Brother keeping the Man down.

Well, yes, of course he did.  If blacks would quit walking around being black, people wouldn't be forced to hunt them down and shoot them.  Duh.

You have to admit the president chiming in about a shooting in Florida while not mentioning any of the other hundreds of shootings didn't help. Also the whole DOJ inestigating civil rights charges after the not guilty verdict and the FBI finding no evidence didn't help.
 
2013-08-01 09:57:33 AM  
i think we can all agree that regardless of what any politician says, regardless of the content or context - everything is always doom and gloom if anybody doesn't get their way?

i mean republicans have been doom and gloom since january 2009 - we all know they've been assholes playing the politics game to hypocritical levels, and while the democrats got to celebrate victories since then they haven't been without their doom-and-gloom milking either

more like boy who cried wolf

"Didn't help" in no way supports "the racial tensions Obama inflamed when he tried to make the George Zimmerman trial about nothing but race."

Your second sentence has nothing to do with Obama, and also does not support his ridiculous claim.

I admit "inflamed" is not an accurate claim there. Maybe I should also correct my second sentence to say "The Obama Administration" to include the appointed head of the DOJ.

Hey Subby,
  If you are going to use a quote in the headline, at least use the actual statement rather than the author's weak paraphrasing.
 
2013-08-01 10:23:16 AM  
Democrats have become pretty much nonstop fearmongerers since Clinton left office, with a brief break for "Hope and Change".  There are so many calamities that face us if we don't vote Democrat - drowning in the seas, crops withering, no more oil, a theocratic Amerika, Jews taking over the Middle East, slavery returning, economy crumbling, America becoming like Detroit, etc...  We need to just get rid of the GOP altogether and have one party rule.
