White House Fly: Is It Racist When Liberals Criticize Obama Too?

By now, President Obama is used to being on the receiving end of criticism from conservatives. Ever since Americans started waking from their coma-like sleep-state (due largely to the efforts of conservative talk shows, columnists, and blogs), the more Obama’s alleged socialist agenda has been uncovered, the more conservative Americans criticized him.

Now, with yesterday’s compromise with those hostage-taking Republicans on extending the Bush tax cuts for all income levels in exchange for extending unemployment benefits, Lord Obama suddenly finds himself in uncharted waters: He’s now being attacked by his own support base of liberals. Sadly for Obama, there isn’t a chapter in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” that covers mutiny within his own ranks.  Perhaps it’s time for another trip abroad?

You may recall how the alleged comedienne/actress Janeane Garafalo defined any and all criticism of President Obama as merely ‘Racism, straight up” by those she dismissed as “teabaggers and rednecks.” One can only wonder if that applies now that the criticism is coming from his own supporters.

In fact, lets check with our old friend, “The Fly On The White House Wall” to see if  he can shed any light on this…

    Well at this point The President in is a catch 22 situation.
    Thanks for another great post, very informative.

      I’m not sure if we’ve been spammed here or not, because that comment doesn’t seem to fit with the topic. I mean the Catch-22 here is for anyone who criticizes the President.

      Having said that, I’m allowing the comment to stand. Why? Because I recently joined “Groupon” and the fact is, it’s kind of a cool program. I’m not endorsing it, nor is Grand Rants, but I thought why not let folks who read this decide for themselves. I’ve already benefited from membership, but I’ll let you all decide for yourselves.

        No, you have not been spammed. Maybe I should have elaborated more. The catch 22 is whoever the President sides with on any issue he’s going to be labeled something by someone. Throughout all of it I think he deserves some credit for appearing to be level-headed. He can very well be called a racist by any group of people if he does not support their views. In either case I think the real issue here is to create jobs to get the US financial system going again. Nevertheless you’ll still here criticism from those who can’t get a job. As far as agendas are concerned what they show us in the media is one thing but behind closed doors it’s another. They’re all in bed with one another. Keep in mind we are watching TV so “It’s all part of the show”.

        Thanks for checking back in. Glad it wasn’t spam (we do occasionally get people simply trying to promote their own web site).

        I think you may have missed the point of the post. It’s not about whether Obama is being racist. It’s whether those who criticize him are racist (as Garafalo insists) simply because we disagree with him.

        Nobody suggested that African Americans were racist if they criticized George Bush. And rightfully so. After all, anyone of any color should be allowed to have a difference of opinion with anyone of any other racial background without being accused of racist.

        Janeane Garafalo, in absence of having anything intelligent to say, still had to fill up some airtime as a guest on Bill Mahr’s program. She condemned ANYONE who criticized Barack Obama as Redneck Racists. And that simply is as ridiculous as suggesting anyone who likes Garafalo is an idiot. As we all know, there are probably one or two people who like Garafalo and who aren’t complete morons themselves.
