Why Certain People Hate Romney
Remember the tape of Mitt Romney telling a fundraiser that the majority of the “47 percenters” would not vote for him? Well, following is an interview (transcribed by me) of an SEIU protester at a Romney event in Bedford, Ohio, near Cleveland. The woman is being asked questions by a reporter who is just out of camera view.
Woman: Yes everybody in Cleveland got an Obama phone … Keep Obama in president you know … he gives us a phone … he gonna do more…
Interviewer: How did he give you a phone?
Woman: You sign up if you on food stamps, if you on Social Security, you got low income, disability…
Interviewer: Question: What’s wrong with Romney again?
Woman: Romney–he sucks … bad…
Interviewer: You got an Obama phone?
Woman: Yes, everybody in Cleveland know minority got Obama phone … keep Obama in president … you know he gave us a phone…

As if that weren’t bad enough, the interviewer questioned another protester at the same event. The interviewer asked a man decked out in SEIU union garb, carrying a sign, how he got to the rally. The protester answered that he had driven himself. He also indicated he was being paid $11 an hour by SEIU to be there.
Another person, a woman who was pregnant, said she was part of a community activist group and that SEIU went through the neighborhood just picking people up. It was clearly apparent that she was indicating she and others were recruited right off the street by SEIU handlers who were driving around depressed neighborhoods.
A man who was also recruited right off the street earlier that day was asked if he was being paid and if he had a job. He responded that he worked for SEIU. It was obvious he didn’t understand that it was a day job that lasted only until the Romney rally concluded. He also stressed the point that he was one of the 47 percent.
The man was quickly silenced by other men wearing SEIU clothing who were obviously the handlers (who also just so happened to be white). They could be heard telling the protesters not to speak to the reporter. (SEE INTERVIEW HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=G5DTqvX74O4)
So there we have it. Obama took office with the support of people saying like Peggy Joseph, who said Obama was going to pay her mortgage and pay for her gas. (SEE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oEgiFQyJR0)
Obama kept those on the lowest rungs of society on his side while in office–based on their belief that he would take care of them. Many of us remember those like a New York man who said he was waiting in line to “get some Obama money.”
And now Obama has the SEIU going through neighborhoods picking people up at random and giving them $11 an hour and a bag lunch to protest at Romney events.
It is clear that Obama’s plan is to elevate the desire of people to be government dependents and pawns in his reelection campaign. Is it any wonder that people embracing his plan would despise any candidate who threatened to make them self-sufficient?
As I wrote in my article entitled “Obama Didn’t Mention This,” it was Byron Tau, who astutely pointed out that, according to the Flesch-Kincaid readability test, Obama speech writers give him speeches that are designed to reach people on an 8th grade comprehension level.
It is a tragic day in America that people would support a man based solely on the color of his skin and his promise to keep them enslaved in the lowest rungs of society. I submit this is the most grievous form of racist marginalization of a people that a person would purposely perpetrate on a people eager to be reduced to same.
