Seems that some people want to take me to task over my assertation that it would be a mistake for the Democratic Party to run a candidate with an Arabic name.
This apparently makes me racist and narrow-minded.
I do not think that the average American will vote for a candidate with an Arabic name in this post-9/11 era.
I do not think the average American will vote for a candidate with an Arabic name at a time when Islamic Terrorism is so prevalent in the news.
Would someone explain to me why my making the simple observation that Group ‘A’ is probably going to react in this manner to Person ‘B’ makes me a racist?
Do you wish me to lie?
Would I be less narrow-minded if I said, “Oh, I think it would be a stroke of genius for the DNC to run a candidate with an Arab name for president. Simply everyone will vote for him!”
Are lies more palatable to you than the truth?
Is your estimation of me so low that you would prefer that I lie about my opinions? Or am I to change my opinions based to match what you are comfortable with?
It is my belief that the majority of Americans will not vote to put Barack Hussein Obama in the White House because he has a Arabic middle name.
This has not one bloody thing to do with the fact that he is black.
This has not one bloody thing to do with his competence.
This has cock-all to do with the plain and simple fact that I do not believe that the average American is ready to elect a President with an Arabic name.
Anything else you read into that observation is yours, and yours alone.
This topic is done with.
