Shapiro: Obama Campaign Goes Racist, Anti-Semitic

By Ben Shapiro

Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate has utterly unhinged the Obama campaign. Last week they were happily jabbering about Romney's record at Bain Capital, implying that he had killed a man's wife, stating that he was a tax cheat and blaming him for outsourcing jobs. This week they're stuck defending Barack Obama's $700 billion cuts to Medicare and spending addiction.

That leaves the Democrats with one solution: get ugly.

Joe Biden led off the festivities in Virginia this week, where he informed the population of 49-percent-black Danville that "he said in the first 100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules -- unchain Wall Street. They gonna put y'all back in chains." That last line is a direct transcription -- Biden lapsed into a heavy southern accent, clearly making a slavery reference. According to the Obama campaign, then, Romney's Wall Street plans are the same as placing Americans in chains. If that isn't insulting to black Americans, nothing will be.

But the Obama campaign wasn't done. The same day Biden unleashed his inner race-baiter, the Obama campaign's Julianna Smoot send out a mass email accusing Ryan of "making a pilgrimage" to Las Vegas to "kiss the ring" of Jewish mega donor Sheldon Adelson. This was an obvious attempt to drive a wedge between Ryan and blue-collar Catholics by invoking anti-Semitic imagery; the implication is that Ryan, instead of making a pilgrimage to Rome to kiss the ring of the Pope, was heading to Vegas to kiss the ring of a wealthy Jew. Ryan, the email implied, was a Judas willing to sacrifice religion for money in the Sodom and Gomorrah of Vegas.

This isn't just nasty campaigning. It's vile campaigning.

It wasn't surprising, of course -- not after the Obama campaign seemingly worked hand-in-glove with a super PAC to release an ad accusing Romney of murdering Joe Soptic's wife of cancer after Bain Capital fired Soptic and Soptic lost his health insurance. It wasn't surprising after the vulgarities that seem to spout daily from the Obama headquarters; their emails suggest that they must win the "damn" election and their staffers call Obamacare opponents "mother---ers." No hope and change to be found here -- just vulgarity and racism.

Just because the Obama campaign is running a disgusting campaign doesn't mean it will hurt them. Negative campaigns remain extraordinarily effective. But it won't work against the revitalized Romney-Ryan ticket. Ryan is simply too likeable -- 50 percent of Americans like him, as opposed to 32 percent who don't -- and he is highly intelligent and scrupulously honest. That means he'll be tough to categorize with the left's three favorite anti-conservative insults: stupid (Palin), corrupt (Nixon) and mean (Bush). Ryan isn't extreme; he's praised by people like ... Barack Obama and Erskine Bowles.

The question that remains for the American public is whether they can be polarized by the divide-and-conquer rhetoric of the Obama campaign. If Obama can't convince Americans that Romney-Ryan will destroy America, he'll have to destroy America himself to ensure re-election by separating Americans by race, sexuality and religion. That's precisely what he's doing.

    So funneled money from Gentile vice found at gambling houses is advocated by Evangelical Christians, wow! But Romney’s a Mormon. The Mormons take no sides in the Israel/non-Israel conflict and believe Arabs are inclusive of the promise from Abraham! But Mitt’s over there recognizing a Jewish state? I’d say THATS TAKING SIDES. And Bibi, did we get him off the ledge yet? ‘I’m gunna do it. Look out. I’m serious. Don’t believe me? Look out, I’ll do it”. If Israel attacks first may she descend into hell afire and f___ all you closeted-gay Evangelical nutbags. The current victim identity of Israel will be flung upon a dunghill and lost. Amen.

      pwpmmp,
      I’ve always thought mean and stupid was the winning combination, but in a pinch stupid and crazy will do. The party of peace, diversity, tolerance, social justice, unity, etc. is coming completely unglued.

      At least Obama has accomplished something positive in exposing the Left for what it truly is, without equivocation, for the entire country to see. They’ve been taking ten steps forward and getting knocked back three for a hundred years, but they’ve never had the exposure they have now thanks to the Internet and other alternative media. Possibly they’ll get knocked back nine steps this time and give us a chance to breath, reorganize and fight our fight rather than theirs.

      Reminds me of when Gordon Liddy wiretapped the warden when he was in Club Fed, got him into court and on the stand said, “Welcome to MY yard”, and destroyed him.

      This is just another typical mean-spirited attack from a left wing America-hater. All you libs really do is name-calling like little children; libs don’t debate, they attack. I got news for you, libs. We aren’t taking this sh*t from you any more. We will counter attack when you provoke us.

    Let us not get carried away~ Romney is who the elites wanted and they got but they did so at the expense of distancing themselves from the Tea party~ To draw the Tea Party back in they have strategized into picking Ryan for VP~ However, no matter how great Ryan is in ethics etc he cannot make up for what Romney lacks~ Remember, Ryan is not going to be president if a Republican is elected~ Matter of fact we will hardly see him~
    Furthermore, when you have a party of democrats who want to ” fundamentally transform” the country into an unsoveriegn welfare state it is bad~ But at the same time when you have a Republican party who does nothing to go against this change and tends to go along to get along period, then the difference between the two sides becomes minute if existant at all~
    So, moreover, there is no difference in parties and voting for one is voting for the other~ Both sides have the same agenda and it is to control the people like sheep~
    FOR GOD’s SAKE do not vote just to vote~ Do not be forced into a bias you may not have~ Do not vote for someone who has been forced upon you~ FOR GOD’s SAKE do not take what is given by the elites at any face value~ The true rift is between ” The American People” and ” The Government”~ Do not go along to get along and keep US where we are at~ ” Go against the grain to gain” by doing the opposite of what all elites want~ And that is for you to vote for them~ The Light

      Geez, savior, perhaps somewhere in that stream-of-consciousness diatribe there might be a point about all politicians being the same. Might have to give you that, but to NOT VOTE in THIS election because you think you are taking some kind of moral stand is most definitely handing this country back to exactly the wrong side.

      When I want to hear a sermon I go to church. Don’t need one here by one who is not qualified to give a sermon. Keep your preaching to yourself. We’re not interested. besides, what you sya makes no sense. Don’t even compare the reps with the dems. That is your opinion, but don’t force it onto others.

    “They gonna put y’all back in chains.”

    Coming from the mouth of our Vice President … yet another instance of the lengths at which they will go to foster their own self-serving agenda rather than show a legitimate concern for the well-being of our country.

    Yet another abomination (Obama-Nation) of an excuse for leadership. Absolutely unfathomable that such a derogatory and and inflammatory reference would be made after the arduous and costly struggle history has shown.

    Totally appalling the lowly, slimy depths a man will go to sell his soul for a vote.

    It might be one thing to be poverty vs. wealthy … but to speak to men in that tone is utterly denigrating and void of any sense of dignity, pride or respect. Too many “not good” things that can come from this kinda of language, and yet our Vice President has chosen to be foolish enough to go down that path in an attempt to incite them. It’s a dangerous thing to play with such fire. Who’ll get burned by this is yet to be seen, but it is incredibly foolish from a man that is supposed to be helping to lead our country … absolutely appalling.

    Now consider what you do at the voting booth in November.

      It doesn’t matter what you do in the voting booth in November. The machines are already rigged to put Mr. O back in for another four years. In 2010 Harry Reid was losing that night by 6%. The next morning he won by 10%. Go to YouTube and search “voting machines rigged” to see how it’s done.

    Even assuming Romney/Ryan were out to “destroy” America—what would be left for them to destroy given the mess that Obama/Biden have created the past four years? When Obama was campaigning four years ago, everything was Bush’s fault. During his administration, everything has been the Republicans’ fault. Now that he is campaigning again, everything is Romney and Ryan’s fault.

    You must think you’re perfect O—and you are— a perfect example of what a leader of this country is not and never should be.

    I’m Catholic.

    What the hell does being Catholic have to do with anything anti-semitic? I believe the Jews are our greatest ally (Israel) aside from GB and Germany. To imply that paying a visit to show appreciation from a generous donor somehow is inappropriate because of religious differences is ridiculous. Besides, who cares what religion one is as long as one has conservative values?
