Barack Obama,"Your elitism is showing" Part 2
If the average person was to watch this ad, they would probably say whats racist about it. Two years ago however, this was considered one of the most racist political ads to run during the 2006 midterm elections according to the elite crowd. For those who don't follow politics, Harold Ford was a Democrat congressman running for the U.S Senate in the state of Tennessee against incumbent Republican Senator Bob Corker. Harold ran as a conservative "blue dog" Democrat. He ran on a theme of morals and values, he even produced a political ad with hm inside of a church. Well to sum it up, news came out that Harold Ford attended a playboy party hosted in Jacksonville during the Superbowl. The National RNC produced the attack ad you just saw. Liberals immediately declared the ad to be "racist". Do you all know why? It was because Harold Ford is black, Corker is white, the state is Tennessee, the actress in the ad was portrayed as being a "white" playmate, and the ad was produced by the National Republican Party. With all of those ingredients added up, the ad had to be deemed racist in the eyes of liberals. Liberals were shouting left and right that the National Republican party was trying to get white Tennessee residents into a racial frenzy at Harold Ford. Tennessee is a "southern state" by the way. Elitist liberal Chris Mathews said that he would blame "white" conservatives if Harold Ford lost to Corker. This is part of the transcript from Mathew's show on November 5, 2006.
Alex Witt: "Do you think the white Playboy ad, for lack of a better characterization of that, do you think that hurt him?"
Chris Mathews ""Well, that was a racist ad, and it ripped the scab off the old racial animosities in this country and fears. You see a very attractive -- sexy, if you will -- white woman, a blonde, a floozy, saying that you don't have to come for me, I'm coming for you. And after the commercial, she pops back in after the Republicans have said we agree with the content of this ad, she pops in around the corner and says, 'I'll call you later, Howard.' In other words, she's throwing herself at a black guy. You're talking about opening up all the old fears and angers, that was the most racist ad I think I've ever seen. And anybody that doesn't see it is either not born in America or refuses to accept the reality".
So this goes to show how elitist liberals are. It can be from a white big city liberal like Chris Mathews or it can come from a black big city liberal like Barack Obama. They have the real problem with people who "aren't like them". About the ad, Mathews didn't mention that the actress in the ad was actually "Hispanic" and not white. I just thought I would throw that out there. Las Vegas has a new slogan entitled "Your Vegas is showing". That slogan can apply to elitists like Barack Obama too "Your elitist liberalism is showing".
