AMAC Chides OBAMA for Creating His Own African-American Fan Club

‘Seeking support among voters for any other reason than a candidate’s competence, experience and track record is just plain wrong’ -

BOHEMIA, NY, Feb 23 – Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, has called on President Obama to “stop using divisive strategies in his campaign for reelection.”

Weber says that until now Mr. Obama has “unabashedly resorted to ideological rhetoric to pit his supporters against all challengers to his reelection, exploiting the economic concerns of the American people by encouraging such groups as the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protestors.  He now appears to be playing the race card by actively seeking to rally Black voters across the country.”

The AMAC chief cited the president’s recent announcement that he and his reelection team have created their own grass roots movement among African-Americans.

“But, a grass roots movement is supposed to be a spontaneous show of support led by the people.  So, why has President Obama found it necessary to create his own fan club, African-Americans for Obama?  And, why is it called African-Americans for Obama and not just plain, Americans for Obama?  At least, that would be more inclusive and less divisive.”

Weber points out that the mainstream media “has not been at all critical of the president for seeking to create and nurture a blatant racially based call for support.  One can only wonder how the liberal media would react if Mitt Romney and his election campaign team were to announce the creation of a group they called, Mormons for Romney.

AMAC believes that seeking support among voters for any other reason than a candidate’s competence, experience and track record is just plain wrong, Weber explained.  “Neither race nor religion has anything to do with leadership ability, nor does a person’s ethnic background or age.”

    They are not African American–there are no genuine hyphenated Americans–just American!

  2. Lev Belinkov says:

    I certainly agree with all of you!
    BHO(Barak Hussein Obama) is a biggest liar for all USA history!
    Why did he hide his birth sertificate?
    Bob Livingston gave us an answer recently!
    He did GREAT job to find out first issue as who is “natural – born citizen”. ( I advise all of you read his “Personal Liberty Digest”)
    So, “natural-born citizens”, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens!
    As all of you know Obama’s father have never been USA citizen! This is real reason why Obama just recently created his
    fake document! Have his advisers know that? I think so! It means all members of his stuff are criminal!
    Now question is why all media keep their lips tight? All senators and congressmens are silent?
    May be all of them are affraid what all world can think about USA?
    I would not care!
    Much better clean up yourself, clean up our beautiful country and go!
    It would just show how we care about yourself, kids and future of our country!

    We are truly living in perilous (dangerous) times. We in America are not exempt. If you are a believer in Christ you know what I am talking about. All those who desire to live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. It’s here and it will only intensify. There will be a great shaking in America as this is the year (2012) that there will be major changes in the government. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. America to your knees, especially those who are saved.

    This ineligible to be Pres., non-U. S. Citizen of any type, let alone a Natural-born U. S. Citizen, illegal immigrant, illegally elected, racist, anti-America, welfarer, in it for the money, incompetent, imposter, fraud, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, liberal, idiot, Muslim P.O.S., ETC., can do anything he wants and get away with it. It is because America and “We the People” are afraid of being called racists? Are we afraid of the backlash from the militant Blacks or Blacks in general, or of a Race War? Maybe that is just we need to rid the U. S. of non-producers, free-loaders and generational welfarers. Are we afraid that 100+ cities will burn? What would happen in the media if Santorum formed “Conservative White Americans for Santorum”, ETC. This a-hole can get away with anything he wants and there is some reason why. I would like to know why. He is a never-was, lying, fraud. Why won’t he open his records? Maybe he doesn’t have any! Maybe he doesn’t want everybody to see that he is all of the above mentioned! Why is America standing for this fraud and his racist wife? Is Congress in bed with this a-hole and his backer, George Soros? Why is he the only candidate that was never vetted and have his background checked…..or was it checked and found out to be all that I mentioned, but because he is a half-breed, the powers to be thought it was time for a color change in the OVAL OFFICE on occasion, when he isn’t on expensive, lavish vacations, on the taxpayers’ dime. He is milking the taxpayers for his reparations and he isn’t an American! Prove me wrong or tell me why he has been allowed to get away with that he has!

  5. kevin says:

    Do any of you people ever write to your Senators and Congressman? How about your state legislature? Maybe you just complain in areas like the. We need people who will complain to people who have some pull. We also need to replace our liberal schoolboards. We need conservatives who will control the liberal teachers(or get rid of them) and not let them indoctrinate our kids.

  6. Glenn says:

    I saw a huge billboard sign in NorthEast Texas that said:
    If you Voted for Obama the first time to Prove you weren’t a Racist!
    Next time vote AGAINST him to prove you are not Stupid!
    Enough said!

    • llittleredhen says:

      I applaud your comment!

    • James says:

      I am a 67 year old American that is Black. I did not vote for this fool in office. I grew up in Chicago. I know what kind of politicians come from that area. Unfortunately, I have a lot of black and white friends that jumped on the first black president banwagon. They are very sorry now that they voted based on their emotions rather than facts.

      • Lois Hull says:

        James you are a true American. We all who love our Country need to fight together and save our Country & vote Oboma out. God bless you.

  7. Vergie Lougheed says:

    It is absolutely refreshing to read just about all of the above. I believe our membership will of the people that can
    think for themselves and not follow along like a huge herd of sheep. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the
    opinions of you people! I agree with all of you. Ellen

  8. Jim Thomas says:

    Obama probably didn’t have to make that announcement.

    “Blacks will vote for Obama, blindly! It’s a race thing”!……….Economist, Walter Williams

  9. Lois Waggoner says:

    We the People need to pray and VOTE!! It is amazing how many people don’t even bother to vote. Our young men gave their lives so that we could have that right. Also we need to pray that The Lord’s will be done. I pray that He will be glorified in our Country because we are the most caring and giving Country in the World.
    We do need term limits. It is awful that a liberal like Ted Kennedy was in office that many years. More Conservative Christians need to run for office and be strong and don’t buy and trade votes. Also adding things to bills is wrong. Just pass one bill at a time not all this pork.
    And slash Federal spending!!! Let the States decide for themselves without the Federal Gov’t.imposing everything. I agree with the above, God help us if O gets another four years!!!!
    Do you know that the Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil were brothers?

    • Ron Litton says:

      Here we go again!… spouting hearsay about Mormons without any basis or background.

    • llittleredhen says:

      Perhaps Jesus and the devil were brothers, but let’s face it-Jesus is the way, the truth,and the light.
      I would rather have a Mormon in office any day than an obvious Muslim. As a matter of fact, just about anyone off the streets of America is better than Obamanation.

  10. Wanda says:

    Wake up America!
    Obama is for Obama nothing more or less…. His goal is to divide and conquor.
    He is trying to turn the poor and middle class against the rich; Working people against the banks; Voters against Republican; Consumers against Business.

    Politicians for many years have believed that if you throw enough s _ _ _ against the wall- some of it is bound to stick. That’s why there are so many lies and negative campaigns.
    Conservatives must learn to speak out ………… or we’re doomed.

  11. Joseph says:

    Barack Hussein Obama has without a doubt set race relations back 50 years. He has incited hatred and distrust of whites amongst black people. He preaches the sermon of class and race warfare. He is a disgrace. Martin Luther King would have been saddened and appalled at this megalomaniac. Black people need to quit stereotyping whites and voting based on color or they will destroy this country.

  12. Gary says:

    Ron Paul is just a politician..He’s propping up his son now for the future if we have one…He’s not the answer..Good in Congress but not as a leader…

    We are the answer..Take it all back locally..

    • C.R. says:

      Ron Paul is far left of center–he shows this in many ways and most recently with his support of the leftist Mitt Romney!

  13. D. K. Parker says:

    This administration is not only corrupt, but totally disgusting. My biggest fear is if O gets reelected that he will become the true dictator that he wants to be and will do everything he can to ensure he is in that position for life. The consitution means nothing to him. I believe this election is our last chance to take back America without becoming a country that, in the past, we have always fought to prevent becoming.

  14. antibee says:

    I too realized the AARP is a liberal saavy organization that makes a LOT of money off of Seniors. I think they have the same marketing team as Obama. All of this is the slickest sales i have ever witnessed.
    Any of the 3 Republican candidates could fix a lot of damage that has been done over the past 3 years. I think it is imperative that the Republicans take the Senate so they will be able to undo some of the damage quicker. It is still going to take quite some time.. I think that after the Republicans choose a candidate. you will see a REAL grass roots movement to get him elected. I feel so badly that i cant make any of my younger friends see through these Chicago Democratic Socialist Party people. They have bought into the “act” and facade of this dude. I try to explain that if you lived through the 60′s and 70′s he is so transparant and simple. And it is a crying shame that African Americans dont know how to take him.. they see color first. Shame on our education system – this next generation. I have no white guilt of being prejudice but if i criticize anything this President does, my younger friends automatically say i dont like him because he’s black. It is soooo annoying.

  15. Rich E says:

    Glad to see many of you are “plugged in” and get it…….now try to convert a few of the “dumbed down” back to reality, including friends, family and co workers. I am amazed that still 40 percent plus give obama favorable polls. You have to be a complete moron to think this manchurian candidate has or will do anything good for the US. He is a pro islamic marxist, surrounded by theives, criminals, fellow commies and is systematically deconstructing each aspect of American business, culture and history. He has attacked banking, finance (ie destroying the bond holders priority in bankruptcy), housing with fannie and freddie (Franklin Raines…..another crook and obama buddy). He is completely on the side of muslims overseas and against our “former” allies like Isreal, Britain, Canada. He is a 2 faced fraud, spending taxpayer funds to have himself and family travel extensively, more than others on vacations, like a special plane to bring the family dog! His energy policy is pure garbage, while gasoline climbs, he refuses to expand our energy resources…….and comes up with an IDIOTIC ALGAE FUEL PLAN…….THAT ISNT EVEN VIABLE.. His wasting money on dead end “green” companies like Solyndra is blown off by the press. Four other such greenies went backrupt as well, but this shill keeps blowing smoke up the dummies sitting in his bleachers. When talking to “pro” obama wonks …..about all his nasty deals, they suddenly become indifferent, and make excuses ….like more time, people are racist, the congress wont let him……… blah, blah. The biggest enemy are stupid Americans. Especially those under 30 yrs old, many women who are strangely facinated with this failure and of course most foreigners who feel he’s ready to sell out the store. Obama makes Carter look like a leader and genius…….and until now he was the worst failure I’ve seen. Wake up people……….the country is dying…….and Obama is the grim reaper.

    • Jarrett says:

      Lots of good, intelligent comments here. All I can do is remind all that the communists said decades ago that if they could take over education and entertainment in any country they could take over the country. That is just how it is playing out.

  16. peggy stevens says:

    It is long past due for everyone to ignore “political correctness” and call things as they are. It’s time for the conservative black Americans to shout out the truth whenever they can……to use every media opportunity……and to educate those of all colors who are void of any political savvy.

    The “regular folks” of all colors are mostly uninformed. Just ask around your work place or school, or where ever, and listen to the apathy or the typical repsonses that sound like a repeat of the usual evening news on the main TV channels, i.e. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN.

    What we need in this country is a huge, peaceful march on Washington, D.C..!!! I like Newt Gingrich. I think we need more of a rebel who can call a spade a spade, knows how Washington runs, and has the back bone to speak for the average folks in this country!!!

    Heck, I think it’s time for a good old peaceful RIOT, a little hell raising at our freedoms being taken away!

    Where would this country be, if our present attitude was what they had in Boston when they were being taxed without representation??? Never established, I’m afraid.

    Everyone keep giving Obama hell and don’t let it stop.

    • Rich E says:

      Agreed……….he must be exposed over and over………all his rotten buddies, his commie backround, his racist agenda and pro muslim sympathies need to be exposed everyday.

  17. Fletcher says:

    It is high time we admitted to ourselves and the world that we screwed up and elected a “hostile” president. Look at everything he has done, gather it all together in a pile of facts in your own mind, and then try to deny the fact that he is hostile to the United States of America. That’s why, on the campaign trail, he declared that he would “fundamentally transform” the country. Well, guess what? He’s making good on that one campaign promise.

  18. Daniel L. Glenn says:

    The EPA is out of control, he put czars into seats while both Houses were out-with n confirmation. I never thought I’d
    see the day that we would be in-debted to China. And, we are still borrowing money from them. Most Americans, don’t
    pay attention to what’s going on around them. That’s what the Administration is counting on. Where’s the Tea Party?
    Why hasn’t anyone, insider or Politician, stood up and said enough is enough?
    If We the people, don’t wake-up, we’ll have the China Flag flying over the White House. What this President has done
    and doing he should be held for TREASON!! This President is worse than Jimmy “Peanut Farmer” Carter. Spend, spend, spend. If all mericans were to wake up, we can get this man out of Office and attempt to work on getting this Country back on track!!!

    What this so-called President has done, (and wants to do), is a travesty. If it were left up to him there would be no
    Constitution. He and his cronies backed the Occupy Wall Street (OWS), and has since turned his back on him. He
    has the Unions in his pockets of the Tax-payers, and their suppoters and off shoots of the Unions. He has allowed
    Regulations to tie the hands of Businesses, and Oil Companies, (they make big Profits-but the majority of those
    profits go to the Government

  23. Jacquie Doty says:

    Sadly the left has kept black Americans on the leftist plantation by not only promoting a culture of ignorance among blacks, but also rewarding them for being ignorant through a system that denies decent schooling, pays generously for out-of-wedlock children, free food, failure to prosecute by the present Justice Department, (Thank you, Eric Holder), encouraging reverse racism…ad nauseam. True, black people arrived on these shores through a terrible system. Also true, 600,000 people died in the effort to give these same slaves their freedom. The Civil Rights Act, (so hated by southern Senators, but passed by Republican efforts), put away the Jim Crow laws. Perhaps giving them free leave and transportation back to the tribal ares in Africa from whence their ancestors originated would awaken them to how lucky they are when one sees the mess the African Continent suffers at present.
    I think the election of Obama and the choice of his his sidekick, Eric Holder, has increased anti-black feelings in this country to heights not seen since the 1930s. Wasn’t Obama supposed to bring about a new, post-racial society?

    • Paul says:

      You forgot to mention it also that B Hussein Obama is the only African American being born in Kenya Africa. All the other citizens in this Country are Black, White or Asian etc. Democrats are keeping these honest decent and mostly Conservative thinking Blacks on their plantation to get their votes.Democ rats were the slave owners too. Late Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was a member of the KKK too.

    • Connie says:

      I am afraid you are 100% correct in your comments. Obama a “uniter” ??? So sad to see Americans falling for this liar. I am sorry to call him that; but it is the truth.

      • Freddy says:

        Is it wrong that I’m starting to sinercely feel sorry for Obozo?As I’ve tried to explain to countless of the Kool-Aid Krowd since 2008, EVEN IF I actually approved of his ideology or thought all the horrible parts of his agenda he’s tried to ram through were actually effective or would make sense in any rational universe …… even if I believed all that, Ogabe would STILL be arguably the worst President in American history.Why? Because he is woefully unqualified. He has no idea what he’s doing. He’s the Chief Executive of the world’s most powerful organization – and he’s never managed a Taco Bell. He’s never led anything. He’s never managed anything.Ever. A couple years as a legislator (voting present!) just doesn’t cut it.Why is that so hard to understand?He was almost guaranteed to be a colossal failure. Would ANYBODY hire this guy, based on his resume, for a CEO position in ANY company? Of course not. He wouldn’t get an interview.Ideology has nothing to do with it. He’s just entirely unqualified.And because of it, he’s managed to make “colossal failure” seem pretty good in comparison. He’s flopped beyond even my worst expectations.The fact that even the loony left is picking up on the obvious is just frosting on the cake.Note to liberals: next time, whatever you believe … please just pick somebody who can do the job.Anybody.

  24. Anita says:

    And still there are millions of Americans who do not see this. I guess when they accomplish what they want and throw us peons to the wolf then these people will get it. When I say peons I mean all Americans of all races. Look how this administration defends the muslims, illegal aliens, criminals (the black panthers blocking a door at a voting place), arming the Mexican Drug Cartel with the best weapons that our hard earned dollars can buy. Yet Odumbo and Hitlery are doing everything they can to take away good law biding American Citizens’ guns. I don’t know what it is going to take for these followers to see what is going on. Let me run a little bit of history here. As I hope most of you know Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941 which drug us into WW11. They completly destroyed our So. Pacific Fleet. After the war was over and we were signing the treaty with Japan one of our Generals asked a Japanese Admiral, “The one thing we could never understand in America, after you all completely destroyed the fleet we were expecting a land invasion. Why did you all not do this?” The Admiral answered, “We knew this would be suicide. We knew that most Americans were armed and there would be no way we could win a land war in America.” Facts Odumbo and Hitlery trying every way the can to disarm law abiding citizens and arming the Mexican Drug Cartel. How many more of these organizations are they funded at our expens but has not been discovered yet? We need to look at our situation in America with open eyes and stop getting on the Odumbo’s band wagon of class warfare and race baiting and see what is happening.

    Then he can take over every asspect of our live”s. Come on black people, open you’re eye”s….All this money that is being spent on illegal’s SHOULD be used on the black American”s. Just think how that money could help with better school’s and more teachers. When our young black’s are out on the st’s selling drugs for illegal’s guess who goes to jail
    and who drives away in a Hummer !! We need a new Pres……one that will stand up for American’s of all color’s !

  27. Dave says:

    Obama knows well that his “African-Americans for Obama” fan club is racist and divisive; it is intentional. His goal is to divide America into warring classes in his eventual plan of completely destroying traditional American culture according to the followings of his heros like William Ayers, Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, and Karl Marx.

    • Connie says:

      I believe that what Obama wants is for the blacks to take to the streets and call for OWS-like tactics, or just plain anarchy, protests, riots and chaos. I believe many of them will do this for him; I live in Philly, PA, and am very afraid. When Obama came to Philly, he never once mentioned the youth crime/violence/mass mobs/thuggery that is plaguing our city. Youths run around randomly bashish innocent people in the heads, steal their stuff, and run. This has happened so many times I can’t count. It is too much for our police and our Mayor Nutter to get a handle on. It is not the mayor’s fault; he has chastised black youths, their parents (if they have any) with no results. God Help us All!

  29. Charles King IV says:

    Obama has been playing the class warfare card ever since he started campaigning for presidewnt so why should anyone be surprised that he’s playing the race card. It sickens me. To think I marched with MLK and believed with all my heart and wanted the world to treat me by “the content of my charecter as opposed to the color of my skin”.

    But, what should we expect from a man who embraces Jerimiah Wrights hatred for his own country, or, any person not black or whose original political mentor ,Bill Ayers, was a non repentant (non prosecuted) terrorist bomber.

It kills me that we have Black History month, Black colleges, Black Miss America, Black tv stations….it is just ridiculous…..and we whites are accused of being the racists. The black folks in this country really do have an elitist philosophy, it is just a shame that so many of O’s fan club are misinformed, or completely uninformed. They would quickly find out that although he claims his “African” heritage, he is ALL white when it comes to strategy and methodology!!!!!!! God help us if he gets a second term. African Americans everywhere NEED to dig deeper, and go to the voting booth as informed “AMERICANS”. and put away the race card!!!!!!!!

      In regards to minorities (religious vs atheist for example & political correctness vs common sense, race or whatever) dictating to the majority that we have to bend to every different group is absurd. Taking “In God We Trust” out of our currency or schools, Not letting organizations use public buildings after hours because of religion (usually Christian faith because it offends some other group but they can use it because then its discrimination) is going too far. We as Americans have lost our path.

      ” I consider the central idea pervading this struggle is the necessity that it is upon us, of proving that popular government is not an absurdity. We must settle this question now, whether in a free government the minority have the right to break up the government whenever they choose. If we fail it will go far to prove the incapability of the people
      to govern themselves”. Abraham Lincoln

    There are a lot of good people who are well qualified to run our governmen a run for president. They don’t want to put up with the hassle and lies of the lame stream media. The American people don’t have the guts to defend good people when the socialist media sets out to destroy them. Shame on the left-wing Oval Office media and shame on America.

  36. Terry Wyatt says:

    Obama would dance in the halls of our white house if he could stir up some race rioting.

    I’ve written my Representative and Senators and get back the standard “Thank you for Contacting me about whatever it was you wrote about. Without your valued input I would not know where my constituents stand (as if I cared). I want you to know that I am working hard on just what you said (all three days a week I work) and support it 100%. Sincerely ……..P.S. May I count on you for your most generous contribution to my re-election war chest?

    I do like my Representative because of his stand on illegal immigration (per NumbersUSA ratings). My Senators both have said that they do not plan on running for re-election, but one said that 12 years ago and hasn’t missed a chance for face time anywhere she can get it. Do you suspect they see the writing on the wall?

    I hate to say it, but I’d throw the baby out with the bath water to clean house (and Senate) and put the fear of the power of “We the People” in the hearts of Congress and the Administration. This administration is the most corrupt I’ve seen in my 70 years. This Congress will do whatever it takes to stay in their cushy jobs. We need representation, not lip service, $100 haircuts and plastic teeth.

    AARP lost me with their stance on ObamaCare. I never did feel particularly represented by them anyway.

      I agree with you Donald, I’ve had it with politicians too! It’s time to drain the swamp! It boggles the mind that, for example, with public approval of Congress down to 9% or so, WHY do people keep sending the same ones back!!?? Speaking of gutless, I agree, the founding fathers devised a ‘check and balance system’, but I’m sure they did not envision such a gutless and corrupt congress. Yes, we need another ‘Ronnie’, or ‘the buck stops here Harry’, but where are we going to find one? The pickings are slim!

        dont give up the ship! BRUCE , their are plenty of good people out there. Any of the republicans (in spite of their being politicians) would make a greater Commander-in- Chief than the current one

      • Paul says:

        We have Ron Paul, he has integrity and he goes by our Constitution.
        That is why no Republicans, no Democrats and not even the Lame Street media has a good word for him. We need a term limit for both Houses of Congress. For some one tern in office and the second either in office or for most in jail

    I believe that the website “African Americans for Obama” will stir conflict amoung ALL other Americans, It is asking a specific group of people for their support. If it woulld have been “Americans for Obama” and at least shown some other groups of people participating, it would have seemed more appropriate.
    This type of retoric could cause race based riots and a deep resentment amoung all other Americans..Why the Congressional “Black Caucus”? Everything that is done now in regards to race seperation is dividing the Country.
