Inland GOP mailing depicts Obama's face on food stamp
07:07 AM PDT on Thursday, October 16, 2008

By MICHELLE DeARMOND
The Press-Enterprise

The latest newsletter by an Inland Republican women's group depicts Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama surrounded by a watermelon, ribs and a bucket of fried chicken, prompting outrage in political circles.

The October newsletter by the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps -- instead of dollar bills like other presidents. The statement is followed by an illustration of "Obama Bucks" -- a phony $10 bill featuring Obama's face on a donkey's body, labeled "United States Food Stamps."

The GOP newsletter, which was sent to about 200 members and associates of the group by e-mail and regular mail last week, is drawing harsh criticism from members of the political group, elected leaders, party officials and others as racist.

The group's president, Diane Fedele, said she plans to send an apology letter to her members and to apologize at the club's meeting next week. She said she simply wanted to deride a comment Obama made over the summer about how as an African-American he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."

"It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement. I really don't want to go into it any further," Fedele said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn't my attempt."

Fedele said she got the illustration in a number of chain e-mails and decided to reprint it for her members in the Trumpeter newsletter because she was offended that Obama would draw attention to his own race. She declined to say who sent her the e-mails with the illustration.

Not really..

The sad thing is, if Barack wins or loses, the country is torn further apart as a result. If he wins, some whites will say they're being forced into minority submission by blacks. If he loses, most blacks will cry conspiracy. It's an effed-up societal mindset we'll have to deal with no matter what. But no one said that the average human was particularly smart or insightful.

You sound like you are in denial. All white people are raythitht, including you.


“A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.

How is Obama linked to the Duke Lacrosse incident in your mind?

Did Obama say "All white people are racists" and I somehow missed it somewhere?

What did the professors say that you thought was so terrible in the link? I read it and I didn't see anything defamatory, although yesterday you hyperbolically claimed that the professors had ruined the players lives.

Obama describes driving to Davis' home in Waikiki after learning that his white grandmother was so afraid of a black panhandler she did not want to take the bus to work. Davis told the teenager that his grandmother was correct to feel scared because she understood African-Americans "have a reason to hate."

Speech Code of the Month: University of Northern Iowa
by Samantha Harris


October 2, 2008

FIRE announces its Speech Code of the Month for October 2008: the University of Northern Iowa.
We have written in the recent past about the explosion of overbroad "bias incident" policies on college campuses nationwide. Many schools maintain policies that define so-called "bias incidents" to include a great deal of constitutionally protected expression. But perhaps none does so as dramatically as the University of Northern Iowa (UNI), a public university, which defines a bias incident as "any inappropriate word or action directed toward an individual or group based upon actual or perceived identity characteristics or background of a group or person and that is contrary to law or policy."

This policy is fatally flawed in many ways. First, the prohibition on "inappropriate words" is laughably overbroad and vague. Who decides what is "inappropriate"? It can't be the listener; courts have held time and again that a finding of harassment, for instance, cannot be based solely on the subjective reaction of the listener, since that would place speakers at the mercy of the most sensitive members of their community. Rather, conduct must be both subjectively and objectively harassing (from the perspective of a "reasonable person" in the victim's position) before it can actually constitute harassment. Moreover, most speech that a reasonable person would find "inappropriate" is still protected by the First Amendment, since to be harassment speech must be so severe and pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with the victim's ability to pursue his or her education. It also can't be the university that decides what is "inappropriate"; it would be—for lack of a better word—entirely inappropriate for university administrators to have unfettered discretion to decide what UNI students can and cannot say. This policy is an invitation to abuse of discretion and arbitrary enforcement.

Second, the fact that speech can be deemed a "bias incident" if it is based on "actual or perceived identity characteristics or background" is also hopelessly vague. While that phrase presumably encompasses such legally protected categories as race, sex, and national origin, it could also be interpreted to include almost anything—height, weight, attractiveness—heck, even making fun of a bad hairdo could be punishable under this policy.

Finally, the policy's statement that a bias incident must be "contrary to law or policy" cannot save it from unconstitutionality, since (among other things) it is self-referencing; the document in question is itself a policy, providing that the university "will not tolerate bias or hate incidents."

For these reasons, the University of Northern Iowa is our October 2008 Speech Code of the Month. If you believe that your college or university should be a Speech Code of the Month, please e-mail speechcodes@thefire.org with a link to the policy and a brief description of why you think attention should be drawn to this code. And if you would like to help fight abuses at universities nationwide, add FIRE's Speech Code of the Month Widget to your blog, website, or Facebook profile and help shed some much-needed sunlight on these repressive policies.

That article isn't responsive to the questions I asked in the least. Why did you change the subject again, now to university speech policies?

I like watermelon, fried chicken, and kool-aid.

I must be half black, too.

I'm not changing the subject. That is the subject.

What speech, or racism? They're pretty clearly two different subjects.

I'm sure now though, that they are both wrapped up together in your persecution complex, so maybe that is the subject.

Why does the left persecute me, just because I'm white and I think critically?

Well yeah, that one powerful professor at the university of Delaware apparently wants to persecute you because you are white, but then when you offered some post about northern iowa's speech code policy as if that showed there were more people advocating this "all white people are racists" comment you seem to be so afraid of, that was where the "critical thinking" seemed to break down a bit.

This toxic, leftist ideology is nationwide.

:rolleyes:

Why are you trying to dismiss it or play it down?

You should be proud to be a leftist voting for B.O.

We were talking specifically about this racial idea, now you're back to some general over-arching type of paranoia?

I am on the left yes. Do I agree with Obama on everything? No way. Do I think it's time for the Republican way of corporatism, outsourcing, racing to the bottom, confiscating middle class wealth, and endless preemptive warring, borrowing it all from China on our grandchildren's backs to end? Absof***inglutely.

You know who is voting for B.O.? The same people that voted for Marion Barry after he was caught on videotape with a hooker with his pants down around his ankles sucking on a crack pipe.

Them, and a bunch of lilly white idiots whose brains have been saturated with political correctness.

The guy is a loser.

And maybe the Dinkins analogy was too provincial, so let me give you one you can identify with:

What Herm has done for the Chiefs? B.O. is going to do that for America.

Your argument in these threads is on par with Herm's press conferences.
