Pundits and those in the chattering class have been going on and on about Flipper's surge in the polls. But, as I have said all along, this election will be close. The country is split right down the middle. No matter what you hear from now until November 6th, it's important to remember that only about five states really matter: Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Virginia, and Pistolvania. We know that Mitt will probably win Virginia and Florida, but O will probably win the other three states. If he doesn't, Ann Romney will be measuring the drapes at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue really soon.
Anyway, wingnuts (Thomas Sowell is one of them) have been spreading a rumor that if O doesn't win Negroes will riot in the streets. Apparently they don't know their Negroes too well. That would never happen. Now if Mitt gets in power and tries to pass legislation to do away with all KFC's we would have a problem. Sadly, Negroes just don't care enough to take to the streets to advocate for the things that matter most to them. We kind of just go along to get along. No civic, social, or political engagement.
Still, if you Negroes do decide to riot, could you please take it outside of your own neighborhoods?
"The Infowars story from Monday collects 11 tweets — all from accounts with African American avatars — talking about rioting if Obama loses the election. Infowars claims they only included 11 because “there are simply too many to track.”
“If obama dont get re-elected & romney wins .. on life every white persons getting pistol whipped and im startin a riot.”If Obama don’t win lets start a riot so Romney know what he’s getting himself into.”
“You know you ain’t shit if you gotta “MAKE” Mafukas vote for ROMNEY ! …. Mannnn OBAMA better get back in office . Or BLACK FOLKS will riot.”“If romney wins, imma start a mf’n riot! Rns.”
“If Romney wins im goin on a rampage.”
“If Mitt Romney wins the election I think its our duties as Black folks to riot and fuck shit up.”
“If every action IS met with an equal and opposite reaction ..what should workers do to employers if Romney’s elected? #Riot in the streets!!”
“If Romney becomes president let’s all start a riot.”
“I Heard Mitt Romney , Tryna Take Away Food Stamps , If He Do .”IMA START A RIOT , IMA START A RIOT.”
The original Infowars story cited right-wing blog Twitchy, which compiled more black people talking about rioting on Twitter. As these sites have limited audiences, a Drudge link can explode their traffic and circulates their otherwise fringe theories.
As the election looms closer, right-wing groups and bloggers have amped up their racially-charged attacks on President Obama, such as in a Tea Party ad falsely accusing Obama of giving poor minorities phones. The Drudge Report has led the charge, most recently with an old video, condoned by the Romney campaign, meant to stoke fears that Obama is inciting aggression against white people.' [Source]
Wow! Eleven tweets? Call out the National Guard.
OK folks, I am off to watch the debate now. Good luck gentlemen.
