Today, I wanted to see if my prediction was coming true – that the words “danger” and “dangerous” would be hung on Barack Obama by those who oppose him.
I expected this would occur among right-wing whites. But I stumbled on a young black Hillary supporter playing this shady game. On the official Hillary Clinton website, in fact.
He blogs on HillaryClinton.com as “J. Allen.” He is a college student in Ohio. And last week, he titled one of his posts “Obama’s Dangerous Message.”
“Senator Clinton knows the ins and outs of the white house, and red tape,” J. Allen wrote. “She makes promises she knows are reachableable. And when she’s in the White House she’ll work for us.”
He continued: “What we as young people need to know is you can’t vote for someone on words. Obama is preaching a dangerous message of Hope and Change, While Senator Clinton is preaching a message of Change with accountability. ... I wish my peers were better critical thinkers. They would not eat up this shallow message.”
J. Allen concluded the post with these words in boldface type:
As a African American
As a Male
As a Student
As a Homosexual
As an American
I vote Clinton. March 4th
I’m glad to see this youngster involved in politics. And I certainly expect Sen. Clinton to have her share of black supporters. But I wish J. Allen would go a little deeper than echoing the Clinton campaign’s talking points of the day.
Just yesterday, J. Allen posted a YouTube video pumping up Hillary and bashing Barack. He does this in the form of a parody of that famous “Leave Britney Alone” viral vid. He calls it: “Leave Obama ALONE!”
Again, nothing but Clinton campaign talking points... including the silly-ass charge of “plagiarism.” Check it out:
