So, Samuel L. Jackson Is A Racist
Actor Samuel L. Jackson came out and admitted he voted for Obama in 2008 because he was (and remains) black.
Voting for or against someone simply because of their skin color is nothing but racism, isn't it? We've heard constant complaints for the past 3 years about how anyone who voted against Obama, or opposes his policies has to be a racist. It's a tired staple of the Democrat Party - anyone who stands in His way is racist.
So, Mr. Jackson comes out and says he did what thousands, if not millions, of other people did in 2008 - voted FOR Obama because of his skin color. That means they voted AGAINST McCain because he is white, right?
I don't hear the NAACP, or LULAC, or MoveOn.org, or Obama Administration officials condemning Mr. Jackson for his racist comment. You don't hear much about it at all, do you?
Let me ask this ... if someone says they voted for McCain because he is white, they'd be branded an evil racist, wouldn't they? Of course, they would. If someone says they voted against Obama because he is black, they would be branded the worst kind of racist, equal to the old KKK members who burned crosses, wouldn't they? No question.
Mr. Jackson told the truth, which he should be commended for. He should be condemmed for the racist action itself. The fact he isn't being crucified in the mainstream media for this is completely expected, completely biased, and completely dispicable.
If you are a liberal minority, you can say anything you damn well please, no matter how racist or offensive it is.
Full disclosure - I respect Mr. Jackson for his craft, he is one of my favorite actors (no matter what color he is).
More full disclosure - I voted against Obama in 2008 because he is the closest thing to a Socialist ever to run for the office, and it was apparent even back then. I knew what was going to happen to our country, and wanted to prevent it. I'd have done so whether the man was black, white, brown, yellow, red, blue, green, pink, or purple with yellow polka-dots. His race doesn't matter, his politics and beliefs do!
