Rick Santorum says Barack Obama 'exacerbated racism' in the U.S.

Rick Santorum says Barack Obama 'exacerbated racism' in the U.S.

This has to be the most IGNORANT COMMENT EVER!!

What’s being ignored here is the role that Barack Obama played in all this,” Santorum said. “You can’t just go from ‘well, we elected out first black president’ and ‘all of a sudden we get Donald Trump.’ There was something in between those two things.”

According to Santorum, “many, many, many people” saw Obama being racist himself and “doing more to exacerbate racism” in the United States.


When a whole nation of right wing racist minded white people created the "tea party" with their slogan , "we want OUR country back !!! That's the ROOT OF WHITE RACISM THAT BEGAN TO RISE UP, the minute they saw a black man in the office of the President. These same type of white people, refused to hold GHW Bush accountable for starting wars and crashing the economy. They refused to hold Republican white people accountable for "Making a Pledge to Oppose Obama', and skirt their sworn duty to respect this nation and serve this nations Democracy.

Then you get an asshole like Santorum, who thinks its black people's job to "educated and teach white people to stop being racist"... MLK, spent his life trying to teach them the value of diversity and respect of democracy, but they were so deeply entrenched in the historical grooming of Jim Crow Ideology, until they could not hear anything, It took LBJ and the force of Law to get them to even regard Democratic Civility of Multicultural People. Every white community in America aspired to the guidelines and policies of Jim Crow Grooming. It was only by the laws put forth by LBJ, that forced them to cut the crap and regard others or face the penalty of law, and then these same historical groomed white people, did everything they could to circumvent the law, until it was necessary to create Affirmative Action to tag and charge their dumb asses with violation of discriminatory policy and practices.

Santorum, is a direct product of that long groomed in Jim Crow Mentality in how the thinks and the policies that he promotes and the ways that he has no respect for public services, because he thinks like George Wallace, in that he detest any white tax money being beneficial to any non white person. YET FOR 100 YRS. white people used black tax money to build up and contribute to the building of their white communities and everything they thought would just benefit white people. Then for 100's of years before that, it was white society that profited from slavery, and those profits built much of what is the historical growth of America. That was contributed to by Chinese Labor, Japanese Labor and every other minority that was used and abused and under paid for the labor that profited white society.

Anyone who has the slack and lazy mind to accept such a vile ignorant comment from Rick Santorum, demonstrates the continuance of the influences of have been groomed in the Jim Crow edicts that pushed policy and habit, into common daily living standards and concept in how they live and how they groomed their offspring's.

It's amazing the blatant ignorance that is overtly promoted by segments of white society.
Then we have the Democratic Platform that says it stands against this stuff... but the public narratives is not highly promoted to speak about how it stands against this, the narrative is not put forth to speak about white people as being the promoters of the racism that has infected America and Damaged the Economy, Destroyed the Industry and Created havoc in public policy... As if, silence will make it go away... When silence has never done such.

JFK told people : "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." The quote can be attributed to Edmund Burke wrote about the need for good men to associate to oppose the cabals of bad men

People can run from the truths, but I will continue to write thoughts about it, as the many who come to this site that is not a member may have some narratives and thoughts to reflect and expound upon. American people have much work to do to deal with the truths of American's Racist History.

America has Issues

And it will continue to take public narrative in commentary and discussion to deal with it, thank goodness for the internet, because today, many sites discuss what many try to avoid discussing and other run away from discussing... but everyday, more and more people write and create the narratives of commentary and discussion... and it is those efforts and acts that will continue to help America address the truths it needs to address to move this Democracy forward.

Many white people are not accustom to reading things written by black people, so they fight it, attack it and try and skirt by it and ignore it... Because the history in America for 100's of years did not want black people to read, and certainly did not want them to write, and now black people do read and the internet has promoted the avenues for black people to write, and much of white society does not know how to deal with it, so they attack it. But... the good thing is, the black people who do write, are not intimidated by the white people who attack what they write and the narrative they bring into commentary discussion. The more black and other minorities write, the more will be exposed and brought up into public commentary that can and will promote public narratives to address and discuss the things that have long been avoided.

As the old white saying goes... "everything is fine, black people are just making trouble"... but what they really mean is...
"Black people are upsetting the white dominated sphere"... and white people want to retain dominance and white privilege, while claiming to stand for equally, but many only stand for it, as long as it does not disturb their white privilege, and the deep rooted ideal of thinking themselves superior. Because to let go of that, is to also acknowledge the vile of their own ancestry who created and promoted that craziness. They try and play it off saying.. 'well that just how it was in those times"... as if that is an excuse for the "vile of ethical violation against humanity", and the social vile and violation against and upon the dignity and person-hood of others. Yet, these are the same people who claimed to be of God, and God principles of regard for humanity... but they only saw that as something for whites to feel and promote and support only in and of others white people.

Time and the technology of today will continue to "expose it all"... and the real truths continue to come out. We have not even touched on the vile of the abuses of human sexuality and the savagery that was done upon and against minorities over the long history of America. Nor have we even begin to speak about what was done to the white woman, in her being relegated to the status of "being a possession"...

There are many many truths people will run from, and detest the discussion of, but time and the people of this nation and this world will write about it, and speak about it, and make the narrative that composes the commentary of these long hidden truths about America..

THE HARDER WE WORK TO BRING OUT THE REAL TRUTHS, THE BETTER DEMOCRACY WE WILL BUILD AND PROMOTE...

Building a better future .... has not and is not a job that will be undertaken by the slacking and frail character, nor by those with lazy minds.

Genesis 3:19
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

When man transgressed the divine law, his nature became evil, and he was in harmony, and not at variance, with Satan

"Black people are upsetting the white dominated sphere"... and white people want to retain dominance and white privilege, while claiming to stand for equally, but many only stand for it, as long as it does not disturb their white privilege, and the deep rooted ideal of thinking themselves superior.

12. pRick repeats talk radio pablum. Obama dared to mention racism

and when asked about certain issues or specific incidents (Trayvon, Feeguson, etc) had the nerve to present different sides and/or perspectives on them. He didn't exascerbate it or fan flames he simply discussed it in an intelligent mature way.

This drive them NUTS. Almost as his being black did.

25. In reality, Obama went out of his way to avoid the topic of race.

As Coates wrote, "Confronted by the thoroughly racialized backlash to Obama’s presidency, a stranger to American politics might conclude that Obama provoked the response by relentlessly pushing an agenda of radical racial reform. Hardly. Daniel Gillion, a political scientist at the University of Pennsylvania who studies race and politics, examined the Public Papers of the Presidents, a compilation of nearly all public presidential utterances—­proclamations, news-conference remarks, executive orders—and found that in his first two years as president, Obama talked less about race than any other Democratic president since 1961. Obama’s racial strategy has been, if anything, the opposite of radical: he declines to use his bully pulpit to address racism, using it instead to engage in the time-honored tradition of black self-hectoring, railing against the perceived failings of black culture."

But Santorum, like most Republicans, lives in an alternate reality. One that ignores the fact that there's always a white backlash to anything resembling racial progress, such as the election of a Black president.

F*** Republicans. I have zero patience for any of them. All persons of conscience, please vote for Democrats every chance you get. I'm begging you.

People of color gained a voice and the racism that exists among us and within ourselves was put on notice. The divine law has been transgressed and we know it.
