Obama 2012: The Great White Hope

Tony Lee, Breitbart, April 10, 2012

President Barack Obama often speaks about how the nation’s institutions need to look more like America—but his campaign is having trouble living up to his standards.

Photos of Obama’s young campaign staffers at his campaign headquarters, though, which the campaign released and can be seen here and here, show a stunning lack of diversity within his own campaign, making Obama seem more like a president whose lofty rhetoric does not match his deeds.

Obama has made a point of calling on federal agencies and even the nation’s schools to be more diverse.

In 2011, Obama signed an Executive Order to “promote diversity and inclusion in the federal workplace.”

The Obama administration has also sent guides to colleges and universities to suggest creative ways they can “voluntarily consider race to further the compelling interest of achieving diversity” in a memo titled, “Guidance on the voluntary use of race to achieve diversity in postsecondary education.”

  • I disagree that Obama’s campaign doesn’t have any diversity.

    It has all the diversity it needs.

    What I learned lately is that a place or institution is sufficiently diverse if it’s full of white liberals who say they love diversity, even if there’s no actual diversity.

  • “President Barack Obama often speaks about how the nation’s institutions need to look more like America”

    I agree with Obama on this.  Federal jobs are disproportionately held by non-whites.  They should be AT LEAST 65% non-hispanic white if they truly want to look more like America!

  • Boereseun

    Obama should do the only right thing in a situation such as this. Fire them all and appoint only Trayvons of colour.   

  • AJ Sims

    What a bunch of pathetic fools in that photograph.
     All the whites in that picture should be fitted with ankle bracelets and forced to spend six months nonstop within the confines of Detroit or one of our other black dystopias. 

  • The_Bobster

    Obama’s campaign staff doesn’t look like America.

    I agree. It looks more like Israel.

  • crystal evans

    Obama is no fool, as you can see, he does not practice affirmative action on his own staff.

    • No

      I agree.  He’s no fool.  No one understand blacks better than other blacks.  He knows exactly what he’d get if he put a bunch of blacks in charge of his campaign:

      a)  They would never show up to work and leave early when they did
      b)  Fist-fights, stabbings and possible shootings . . . and that’s just among the females
      c)  Graffitti on the walls, urine on the carpet, garbage everywhere
      d)  A powerful stench of hair product, crack, moldy fried chicken and body odor
      e)  Theft of anything that can be carried
      f)  Missed appointments, bills not paid, events not scheduled
      g)  Incredibly loud and constant jabbering worse than any monkey cage at the zoo

        Great post, but I would add couple of things –

        h) Difficulty in finding staff to work the phones due to their tendency to tell callers to go “**** themselves”.  Sorry……..”theyselves”.
        i) Lots of no-shows due to court dates, bail hearings and all-day hair salon sessions
        j) Mass confusion for name tag makers over various spellings of D’lambertravious, La’Quandreisha and Me’Shellia
        k) Fights over innocent media requests to turn down boom box during press conferences
        l) Mutiny over restrictive dress code requiring something resembling normal business attire (‘Whatchoo mean I can’t wear mah Lakers jersey?”)

        • No

          m)  Top campaign officials profilin on stage wid they white hos so there’s no room for Obama to make a speech
          n)  Michelle Obama sky-rockets to the top of the Hip-Hop music charts with her new rap single:  “Why I lubs dis ni**a”

          • JackKrak

            o) Annoying tendency of press spokesman of making ridiculous gang signs with his hands before beginning the briefing and saying “I out” when he finishes
            p) Extreme difficulty of coming up with a campaign theme that doesn’t contain profanity or intentionally misspelled words (“Obama Fo’ Prez”)
            q) Extra expense of hiring team of Ebonics-English interpreters
            r) Problems associated with the fact that every time they send volunteers to go door to door asking for votes, 911 gets a hundred calls in the first five minutes
            s) Difficulty in getting accountants to accept cases of Colt .45, fur-lined purple double breasted suits and gold necklaces with giant diamond-encrusted outlines of Africa pendants as legitimate campaign expenses

          •  t) civil rights lawsuits coming out the hoo hoo

            u) darker blacks calling lighter blacks “half breeds” or “Uncle Toms”

            v) Valuable trinkets mysteriously go missing

            w) Lawdy lawdy Miss Scarlett, I don’t know nuffin’ ’bout now daily showering

      • The_Bobster

        c)  Graffitti on the walls, urine on the carpet, garbage everywhere

        IOW, just like the Clinton crew left the White House.

  • We also found out today that Mr. War on Women’s own White House pays women an average of 18% less than men.  Now, there might be a valid reason for that, but they’re not interested in the valid reasons why it might be true for everyone else.

  • loyalwhitebriton

    President Bananarama has done nothing to improve the lives of the majority of Americans, and I mean those who don’t qualify for affirmative action; and looking at the photograph above, with all the happy clappy people, just confirms what I’ve always suspected – left wing politics is a Cult.
    On the diversity question, of course Bananarama’s team isn’t diverse; diversity only applies to whites, non-white groups can be completely non-white and yet be diverse. Such is the twisted logic of the current political paradigm.

  • Jay1

    I have a lot of experience with that kind of hipster, young liberal ‘activist.’  They are – in a word – truly nuts, and they have no idea how self-destructuve their attitudes and activities are for the future.

  • GM (Australia)

    Yes, starry eyed young idealists, at least they have it easy these days, 75 years ago they would have been marching off to take sides in the Spanish civil war.

  • No

    And to think we fought the Germans for this.  Unbelievable.

    • rentslave

      We should have surrendered to Germany.Rent would be much cheaper.

  • He should only hire people who look like his Sons. The Sons of Obama would do a great job for him, I’m sure.

  • NM156

    “Hello, Douchebag Central. How may I help you?”

  • Suddenly that cliché “do as I say and not as I do” comes to mind after looking at that picture. I wonder why that is?

  • IstvanIN

    What kind of fools are these “white” people:


  • If his staff was all black you would say he is only the candidate of the blacks. So he has white people supporting him and you get mad at that? He can’t do anything right in your eyes can he?

    • The_Bobster

      Those “White people” aren’t like us.

      And we reserve to right to call Ol’ Bluelips on his hypocrisy.

    • He is the one in support of “diversity”, not us. 

  • sbuffalonative

    This reminds me of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

    He incessantly mocks whites (like Republicans) for not showing enough diversity.

    A few years back, he won an Emmy and all his writers joined him on stage. The group was 100% white and two, maybe three white women.

    The next day on the show, Stewart showed the photo and sheepishly joked about having an all white writing staff. A few days later, he was back to mocking non-diverse white people.

    • IstvanIN

      They were probably as “white” as he is.

  • Both are. The question can be easily resolved through the use of Doublethink.
