Racists Target House Majority Whip James Clyburn

- By Bossip Staff

Apparently the right to health care for all sent some hate-filled blue-eyed devils into a racist tailspin. On the heels of the House vote approving legislation to reform health care, House Majority Whip James Clyburn was targeted with faxes which included depictions of nooses. Look under the hood for more details.

Clyburn, a veteran of the civil rights movement, told Keith Olbermann Monday that faxes sent to his office had racist images including a noose. “If you look at some of the faxes that I got today, racial slurs, nooses on gallows, and I’m telling you, some very vicious language. This stuff is not all that isolated. It’s pretty widespread. I hope it’s not too deep.”

So, black men used to get lynched for allegedly “recklessly eyeballing” white women, but now these idiots want to lynch a brother who is trying to ensure that white women (and every other citizen) can afford to go to the doctor?

    A historical health care plan has just been signed by President Obama a black man and all this hatred and vitreole is starting to gain momentum. A poster said previously “If clinton were president and signed this bill, would there still be a huge backlash like this”. I would have to say absolutely not.

    And that’s exactly why I would have signed the bill..It’s amazing how animalistic and barbaric white people become when they feel threatened.

  • strongsister

    People are so ignorant that this doesnt surprise me in this day and time.. They just took us back 40 years with the same hate. This is really sad.

    Let’s keep making History!~

    “On Saturday, Tea Party protesters in a crowd backed by Republican lawmakers called Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) a “ni**er” and at least one protester spat on Rep. Emaneuel Cleaver (D-MO). The slurs and spitting came as Lewis and Cleaver joined other Democratic lawmakers in marching to the House . Lewis and Cleaver are black.”

    My biggest fear is that someone is eventually going to be physically harmed or worse. I keep experiencing the sinking feeling that something horrible may happen. I sometimes wondered what conditions were like for us in the 60’s — Now I have more than an inkling of an idea, and it’s extremely unsettling.

    for real, with Obama signing this, i don’t even think it’s worth it to was time commenting in response to these racist idiots that inundate every Black site on the internet. We’re done wasting energy challenging your talking points. Now we are doing something about it even on the most minute of levels.

    “When people fear change, they have the capacity to act irractionally…as demonstrated this past weekend.”

    Throughout the years, there have been individuals that have reacted with violence in response to change and fear of the unknown and unfamiliar. I recall reading about people photographed with guns in their possession at some of the rallies. I’d be dishonest if I said I wasn’t unnerved by the undeniable undercurrent of rage that is present among some individuals.

    Some people just cannot handle change, so these situations seem to be occurring more frequently. I don’t like the heightened level of UNSAFE and PALPABLE intolerance that I am seeing.

    Opposition to the health care bill is only the latest smokescreen for hatemongers of all stripes to spew their venom. I honestly don’t think their opposition is the bill itself (because to be quite frank, I honestly don’t think most people know or understand what’s in it)–their opposition is to the race of the man who championed it.

    There have been protests in Washington for all sorts of controversial government actions (Roe v. Wade, the War on Terror, e.g.), however, I have never seen the debate take on such a vituperative tenor. The difference between this government action and others–merely the color of the man at the helm when the decision is made.

    It’s frightening on a lot of levels.

    @ LADYKNOCKOUT…

    LOL!!! CO-SIGN!! ALL IN THEY POCKETS THEY DON’T LIKE THAT. RICH DON’T WANT TO PAY NOTHING DO THEY? LOL!!!

    When ethnic groups AKA Black Panther Party and the Chicano movement of the late 60s and 70s did what the Tea Party is doing they had the Federal government on their backs. How is it that the Tea Party can openly call for a revolution seemingly without any consequences???

    @Soul Ese

    You know why…

    @sydney

    Good evening, I’m starting see that ground swell of anti-gov’t rhetoric building at work in nyc as you mentioned previously. Most of this vitreole was hidden in the past, but people have become more overt about there feelings. I support the president for the most part, I just wished he would do a better job of explaining himself better concerning the health care plan(if that would have made a difference, who knows ?)

    Good evening to you as well

    Couldn’t have expressed this opinion any better..agree 100%. I also kinda wonder if maybe it would have been better if Clinton would have been the one to sign this bill. Its possible there would be less vitreole and fear…sad to say.

  • Soul Ese

    LOL of course I know why….. wonder if they gonna protest the large influx of illegal aliens coming from Ireland….their economy is about as viable as Detroit.
