White House transcript includes, ‘They’re racist!’ shout

Shoutouts at presidential speeches are nothing new in politics, but which ones should be included in the official White House transcripts?

Conn Carroll, senior editorial writer at the Washington Examiner, points out that the White House transcript of President Barack Obama’s immigration speech in El Paso, Texas, includes this text:

AUDIENCE MEMBER: They’re racist!

Obama, who was speaking about his Republican opponents on immigration at the time, continued with his speech and did not respond to the person’s outburst. Normally, outbursts are only included in transcripts if the president responds to the remark.

Obama did so at the beginning of the speech:

THE PRESIDENT: I hope everybody is wearing sunscreen.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: We live here.

THE PRESIDENT: You say you live here? You don’t need it, huh? (Laughter.)

For context, Obama did not respond to other crowd outbursts like, “We love you,” and, “Tear it down.”

    Let me splain it to ya folks 😉 Fight it though the good amongst us do, Racism is a main pillar in human relational interaction. Deny it or work with it, The smart learn to use it, the IRS gets as many black examiners as possible, they don’t trust or like white people. US covert teams used Koreans in Nam, they pretty much hate all other Asians and are mega tough guys. Drug dealers hire mestizos in Mexico, they rather enjoy cutting off heads of those who are to them sub human. I have been called a monster for exposing this theory but nobody has ever been able to refute it. It even gets to how can an Irish catholic hate a protestant when I can’t tell any difference. I won’t even mention how so many people hate Mormons and Jews and I can’t recall any of either I dislike.

    Obama and Moochelle are two of the biggest racists to EVER ebter politics. I truly believe the puppet master Soros is doing his best to get Obama to start a race war in this country. And…if it gets Obamao money and the starlight, he will do it no matter what the cost. We should be kicking every illegal out instead of pandering to them and Obama should be impeached for aiding and abetting criminals.

    Obama is not only a racist, he is a racist demagogue. Racism is one thing, but purposely stirring up and encouraging racial animosity is nothing short of EVIL, and that is precisely what Obama, and his ugly spirited wife are doing. They are stirring up the Hispanics by making statements about granting amnesty, “if only the Republicans would agree”, as a way of attracting the Hispanic vote and simultaneously demonizing the right. Obama is hoping to leverage enough votes for amnesty, knowing it would give him the upcoming election and likely a permanent majority, but short of that, he is using the issue to do an Alinsky. Obama has no decency or morals.

    Michelle Obama is doing her part by inviting so-called poets to the Whitehouse that she and the worst-president-who-ever-lived knew full well would create racial controversy. The Obama are past masters at racial politics and are using these episodes to rile up and galvanize the uneducated and irrational demographic within the minority population.

    Here are some more facts on the “socially concious poet” Common (racist)from an article in NHJournal:

    “Just as President Barack Obama celebrates the killing of Osama bin Laden and the closing of the book on the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, he may also be opening up old wounds from a sidebar story from that era that haunted him during his 2008 presidential campaign.

    According to the Associated Press, Obama “will celebrate American poetry and prose with a gathering of poets, musicians and artists at the White House next Wednesday night.” One of the poets who will attend is Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. who goes by the name “Common.”

    It is likely Obama met Common at the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ were both men were members. Several of Wright’s sermons caused a firestorm of controversy during the 2008 presidential campaign due to their caustic, racially charged, anti-American tones. One sermon in particular caused Obama a severe headache – the one in which he blamed America for Osama bin Laden’s terrorist attacks. “America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he said.

    Obama at first tried to defend Wright. But when that strategy became untenable, he disavowed him. Not so Common. In fact, Common defended his minister.

    “What I picked up from the pews…was messages of love,” Common said at the time. “Anything that was going on against that love he would acknowledge and expose. He’s been a preacher that’s helped raise one of the greatest political figures in the world, and hopefully, the next President. He’s also raised one of the greatest rappers in the world [meaning Common himself].”

    In fact, Common rapped at the 2008 New Year celebration at Wright’s church. “I’m gonna let you know / No people want drama / We gonna vote for my man / What’s his name? Obama … Revolution is here,” he sang, and the Rev. Wright danced in the background.

    Some of Common’s poetry could also raise some eyebrows among those who might find cop-killing and racially-tinged or misogynist language beneath the Office of the Presidency.

    “Tell the law my Uzi weighs a ton … I hold up a peace sign but I carry a gun,” raps Common in one appearance that was posted onto YouTube.

    “Flyer say Free Mumia on my freezer,” he raps in another. Mumia Abu-Jamal is an incarcerated former member of the Black Panther Party who was convicted in 1981 for killing a Philadelphia police officer. Agitating for his release from prison has become a cause for many leftwing activists.

    Common named his daughter after Assata Shakur, a Black Panther who was convicted of first-degree murder 1977. She escaped from prison and exiled to Cuba. The FBI recognizes her as a domestic terrorist.

    Common has also been a vocal opponent of mixed race relationships and believes black men and white women should not date. In one rap he says, “I don’t know what it is / but white girls gettin’ ass / I know what it is / It’s cash.”

    Interestingly, Jill Scott, who will also join the White House celebration, opposes interracial relationships, as well.

    White House partisans will no doubt argue that poetry and art is supposed to push boundaries by confronting controversial topics. But cop killing and interracial marriage seem to be settled matters with the vast majority of Americans.”


    Jill Scott is also black, predictably. Now if Bush had had poets attend a reading that were white and opposed to interracial marriage the media would be in meltdown mode, and we’d have to listen to morons like Al “CrapSmear” Sharpton blathering their pseudo racial outrage jive for months.

    Common has proven to be exactly what his lyrics indicate he is, despite the convoluted and idiotic “poetic” interpretations that the left, and the rap lovers try to BS people into believing.

    This is just more documentation of the Obama’s animus towards whites, and cops for that matter. It couldn’t be black rappers acting stupidly…..but irrefutably is the Obamas acting evilly, which apparently is their mission in life.

      the truth, is the truth, and nothing can change it.

      great post, as always

    Hey,if it is dig at Republicans, they want to get it into the transcript. This is the adminstration that is the epitome of nasty, vindictive, sarcastic, and vitriolic – and then criticizes others for being those things even when they aren’t.

  • kingfish

    It’s time to speak the truth. OBAMA and MICHELE and all their appointees are the REAL RACISTS. I am very tired of his calling Americans “racists” when Americans don’t LOVE and support his ever-growing FACIST REGIME. This is a favorite Jewish tactic to SHUT PEOPLE UP by calling them “racists” and “anti-Semitic”. I will no longer kowtow to their slimy tactics.

    ADL’s Foxman is promoting obliterating the white population and has managed to start teaching it in our primary schools, while advocating the Jewish population ONLY marry Jews. HELP YOUR COUNTRY! MARRY JEWS TO INTEGRATE THEM INTO OUR SOCIETY!

    The only ones that are racists in this story are obama and his friends, and possible the nut job that posted the long crazy rant.

  • erick1740

    Obama is a lying P.O.S.

  • Dee2008

    I remember once when McCain was giving a campaign speech and somebody shouted something nasty about Obama, and McCain interrupted his speech to call the guy out on it. It would be so nice if, just once, Obama would show that kind of grace.

    • borntoraisehogs

      Yea, hard to believe he lost.

      • Dee2008

        Heh…he’s a crappy excuse for a Republican, but he does have good manners–unlike the White House’s current occupant.

    “Nobody here thinks that the death of Osama Bin Laden is a conspiracy?
    Nobody finds the timing a bit odd that the minute the Obama birther issue was “debunked” all of sudden a super elite fighting force pinned down Bin Laden and couldn’t take him alive?
    After all, we’ve only been after him for how many decades?”

    Wrong connection. As you now know the CIA had his compound under observation and were monitoring the comings and goings who came and went, that’s valuable intel.

    I think we will find that the guys that owned that compound were mentioned in a “wikileaks” dump.
    We couldn’t take the chance that he would rabbit and go to ground again, that made the op a GO.

    “Do you think if we really caught him he couldn’t be hit with an elephant tranquilizer gun? OBL or UBL possess no credible intelligence?”
    Was it a capture or kill or was it just kill?”

    We need to see his head shot (pun intended) If it were a “capture or kill” the double tap shot would have been center-mass first round hits the chest 2nd round hits the head.
    The gun used would have been a .45, 9mm or 5.56×45, any of these and his head would have literally exploded.

    If it were a ” just kill” op, then they would have used the Ruger MK2 surpressed .22LR, the head would be damaged but basically intact.
    This is the SEAL’s assassin gun.

    There’s lots of ballistic analog on the web to show what I mean, just look up .45 verses Cantaloup or Watermelon.
