Referring to an energy bill during Tuesday's debate, McCain said: "You know who voted for it? You might never know. That one," he said, pointing to Obama.
Who would have guessed? The use of the phrase "that one" represents absolute proof that John McCain hates black people.
But for me the winner of the disgustometer was John McCain referring to Obama as "that one." That one? What one is John referring to? Was he referring to "one of those?"Actually, no. McCain would be differentiating Obama as the one, out of the two of them, who voted in a way that would surprise you if you listened to the rhetoric of the Obama campaign. As in - "That one voted for it, not this one."
Sorry Righties, but this was a blatantly racist remark. When you refer to a person as "that one" or "one of those," you are reducing that person to a caricature of a "group." And what "group" do you suppose McCain was referring to? Could it be blacks? Your damned right he was."One of those" would be dramatically different. That might mean "one of those crazy liberals," or "one of those candidates who has no qualifications to justify his candidacy."
Whether conscious or not, John McCain is a racist and his disrespectful, insulting behavior towards Obama during the debates proves it. There is no way anyone could get me to believe McCain would behave this way towards Clinton or Edwards if they had won.He wouldn't say something diminishing to the smarmy little phony John Edwards? Now that's a highly questionable assertion. Remember how McCain used to treat Mitt Romney?
Props to Devin Barber of Left of the Right for the silly post, and for his vivid imagination. Consider his title.
LEFT OF THE RIGHT: John McCain’s “That One” Remark Blatantly Racist And His Campaign Rhetoric Could Incite ViolenceNot only was McCain obviously racist, but his remark was so demeaning to blacks that they'll soon be hitting the streets in violent protest. Now it is Devin who is the racist - he thinks blacks are so dumb and violent that they would misunderstand the remark and respond with riots. Oh, how liberals work to keep bigotry alive!
Okay, all liberals are not idiots. That one, however, certainly is.
