Racism in the Romney Camp

by Lisa Hussein

Today, October 4th, 2012, the co-chairman of the Willard Mitt Romney campaign said that the president of the United States is not only incompetent, but also “lazy”.  That co-chair is former governor John Sanunu

The level of disrespect of this president has reached new highs.  I expect Fox News to sound the dog whistle, but when prominent members of the Republican party engage in racist dog whistles, then we should understand there we are looking at one of two things.  Either we are looking at the end of the Republican party or we are looking at the end of the United States.

The leadership of the Republican party is evil and stupid.  First let’s talk about stupid.  In 2012 we understand that within 30 years the majority of the people in America will be like the majority of the people on this planet – that is the majority will be people of color.  If the Republican party wants to keep alienating people of color through their own racists fears then they will find themselves extinct or living in a 3rd world country.  Most of these people are well-traveled.  They’ve been to places like South Africa where the white people live in fear of retribution by the majority, whom they have abused for the last few centuries.  Whites in SA live behind barbed wire fences and race out of their driveways for fear of being carjacked.  Is that the America that the GOP wants?  Because if they continue to be the racist, shortsighted evil lying bullies that they are today that is the America they will get tomorrow.

Why do I say they are evil?  Simply because they have continuously taken they Ayn Rand approach to life and put their own greed and ambitions ahead of the lives of American citizens.  Nixon (or his people) contacted the Vietnamese and asked them to hold off negotiating peace with LB Johnson – that he would give them a better deal when elected.  Reagan did the same thing with the hostages in Iran.  GW Bush did the same thing with Iraq.  All of them were happy to put American lives on the line for their own ambitions.


So what would a president Romney do?  Well look at his legacy.  Look at the flip flops and look at the kind of people he allows to represent him.  Is this really the America that we want?  Will this man and his racist flunkys help move us toward a More Perfect Union?  I think not.  Shame on Mr. Romney, shame on Fox News and Sanunu and shame on America if they elect this soulless man.


Brave New Voices – An Illustration of our Youth Waking Up

August 15, 2012

I have had the privilege of visiting South Africa.  While there I made a documentary and my question to all of the young people that I interviewed was this: “if you had one wish that would come true, what would it be?”  One young man, about the age of 20 at the time said, “I […]

Obamacare is constitutional

June 28, 2012

Watching very closely the coverage of this historic ruling.  President Obama is the FIRST president in modern history to get a health care law put into place.  Will he get the credit deserved or will the usual disrespect that permeates the political discourse these days continue?  I will be watching and writing in the next […]

Tulsa Masacre 2012

April 8, 2012

You know, there’s something about Oklahoma.  I’ve only been there once and I have no intentions on ever going there again. There is a spirit that lingers over Oklahoma; it is oppressive and smothering.  Perhaps it is a result of the staggering racial violence that has taken place on Oklahoma grounds.  Perhaps it is because […]

American Police Allow the Execution of African American Men

April 6, 2012

I cried again tonight as I learned that two men of color, one African American and one Latino, Terrence Williams and Felipe Santos, appear to have been executed and are at least  missing for the past 8-9 years.  The main suspect, a cop named Steve Calkins.  Why is it that white people have so little […]

OBAMACARE – What is at Stake?

March 28, 2012

We have done a piss poor job messaging the benefits of this VERY conservative health care law.  Here are a few of the major highlights – I will update this later with documentation that what is being disputed right now in the Supreme Court was a Republican idea…until Obama agreed, then it became a bad […]

TRAYVON MARTIN-Justice and Other Insurmountable Goals

March 28, 2012

I knew that it wouldn’t be long before the media found some kind of “dirt” on Trayvon Martin and decided that is was relevant to the case.  Fortunately, we have the 911 tapes that irradiate any attempt to brush off Trayvon as some wayward gangsta apprentice out to make a name for himself and poor […]

Obama 2012 – The Racism of the 2010 Tea Party Movement is Unacceptable

March 26, 2012

2012 is too important to stand idly by and allow those who operate from a place of fear to take “back” our country.  The term conservative is defined as:  disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc.,or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.  I don’t see how any person of color could want to “restore” traditional institutions.  I don’t want to GO BACK to anything.  I want to […]

WHO Believes in a Phony Theology? : The Theology of Racism

March 16, 2012
Thumbnail image for WHO Believes in a Phony Theology? : The Theology of Racism

GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has postulated that President Obama operates from a “phony theology”.  Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, intimated that President Obama is a Muslim by birth.  It is interesting that all of these “so-called” Christians and Evangelicals are operating from a racist theology.  A theology that goes against what Franklin’s own […]
