Barack Obama lies, falsely accuses Dobbs, Limbaugh of inciting hate crimes

At a Florida fundraiser yesterday, Barack Obama said this:
"A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There's a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year... If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it's not surprising that would happen."
Those statements are beyond reprehensible, and come close to accusing Dobbs and Limbaugh of breaking the law. And, the reason he did it is because he's completely corrupt, hoping to obtain political power by supporting illegal immigration. Rather than supporting our laws as a U.S. Senator should, he smears those who oppose law-breaking.

Moreover, Obama lied yet again. See how the SPLC's "The Year in Hate" misled about FBI hate crime statistics. See also the FactCheck discussion of one of the February debates:
However, Obama was being overly dramatic when he said, "we have seen hate crimes skyrocket in the wake of the immigration debate."

That's saying a bit much. When we asked his campaign for documentation, they pointed us to the most recent FBI statistics, which actually show that the number of incidents classified officially as "hate crimes" went up 7.8 percent in 2006. (Figures for 2007, which would show what occurred during and after the highly charged debate on the House and Senate immigration bills last year, won't be available until much later in 2008.)

We think a 7.8 percent increase hardly qualifies as a "skyrocket." Looking only at the incidents in which Hispanics were targeted, "hate crimes" rose a bit more, 10.3 percent, but that's hardly a rocket-propelled rise either. Furthermore, the number of anti-Hispanic incidents fluctuates widely from year to year. During the last 11 years, the number of incidents nationwide has bounced around between a low of 426 in 2003 and a high of 597 in 2001, according to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports. It was 576 in 2006.
UPDATE: Here's a segment from the Lou Dobbs show on Obama's lie. Note the figures from the FBI that show that Obama lied, and note also that the Obama campaign couldn't tell them where Obama got his statistics:

Obamalamdingdong is just pandering for that critical Marcusian/Gramscian Marxist vote. Screw the vast purality of "Lou Dobbs" Democrats who opposed last year "Comprehensive Immigration Reform". "F" the Independent vote. Obama just knows that there is a untapped electoral goldmine of left-wing academics, bong-smoking Howard Zinn/Noam Chomsky reading college students, anarchists, MEChistas....... If Obama gets the nomination, He will go down to a 50 state defeat. One worse than McGovern. And Nixon's unfavorablity rates were not even close to Dubya's. Larry Johnson's NoQuarter blog has articles saying that Obama today is already at risk of losing CA and MA to McCain in the fall. Just wait until folks get a look at the supposed video Michelle ranting about "Whitie" or find out about his BFF the unrepentent flag stomping hippie ex-terrorist turn Maoist education guru William Ayers.

For someone who is touted as being a uniter, he is sure Hispandering a lot. He is advised on immigration by people like the UC Davis immigration law professors, one of which is the new dean and author of a book called 'Opening The Floodgates' (i.e., make U.S. immigration unlimited). http://www.law.ucdavis.edu/news/news.aspx?id=1339 Lou Dobbs happens to think illegal immigration is a scandal and thus he will expose the corruption driving it at every turn. So when Media Matters accuses him of 'serv[ing] up a steady diet of fear, anger, and resentment on the topic of illegal immigration' I think Lou would defiantly respond 'Da*@ right!' He wants people to be outraged and demand accountability from their elected representatives. Those representatives, naturally, hate that. Obama isn't showing much independence or promoting unity when he parrots the propaganda of the SPLC and LaRaza. Who knows what statistic he's referring to (I've never heard of any double in one year, but if there is I bet it's from a biased, dubious source) but the most offensive part is that he attributes the increase to two people voicing their political opinion? On what basis? How could he possibly know? That would make a great question for him--how do you know this? Personalize it. Declare that you oppose illegal immigration on whatever grounds (e.g., rule of law) and then ask BO if he thinks that means that I must also be a xenophobe? Am I feeding xenophobia if I express my opinion? When he says 'no' or 'of course not', reply 'then why do you say that about people like Lou Dobbs?' There are all kind of reasons which together might explain such a statistical increase--population increase, expanding legislation, reporting techniques, or simply an unexplainable year to year discrepancy. But no, it's two guys.

Obama is crying about a sktrocking rise in a total of 576 in 2006? WTF about the American victims of Mexican "hate" crimes? Im sure there is a hell of a lot more than f*cking 576!! Gets me so pissed!! Todays politicians dont give a f*ck about us.

Obama Plays the (Other) Race Card May 23, 2008 - 7:37pm By Mike Wacker Mike Wacker Oppose illegal immigration? In that case, you may be responsible for xenophobia and hate crimes, according to Obama: "A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. ThereÂ’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year. If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, itÂ’s not surprising that would happen." So much for all of Obama's talk to disagree agreeably. If I understand Obama correctly, if you support enforcing our nation's laws against illegal immigrants like Dobbs and Limbaugh, apparently you are only fueling hatred against Hispanics. I guess there must not be any legal Hispanic immigrants that support laws ensuring that all immigrants, whether Hispanic or not, also enter America legally. Now granted, every politician makes mistakes and say things he did not mean to say. However, Obama already has said something to this effect before. Many still remember his comments describing those "bitter" small-town Americans who cling to guns and religions. Well, if you had read Obama's comments in their entirety, you would have discovered that this "bitterness" also fuels these people's anti-immigrant sentiment. Also, what about those Democrats who voted against comprehensive immigration "reform"? Democrats like Senator Byrd remember the immigration reform of 1986 that never was. Have they joined the Republican hate conspiracy? I guess independents like Lou Dobbs are in on this, too. http://cornellsun.com/node/30483

B, It is completely dishonest for MMFA to associate Dobbs with Limbaugh. Right up until mid to late summer of 2006, Limbaugh was for the most part following Karl Rove's talkingpoints in support of BushCo's staunchly Pro-Open Borders agenda. Only when there was a spontainous growing nationwide mass counter revolt among the working and middle class Republican base in the aftermath of the May 1st Open Border/Anarchist/Reconquista rallies did Limbaugh break from the "party line" on immigration. Because Limbaugh's audience was calling in outraged over immigration, Rush, like dozens of other right-wing talkers, grew afraid of losing his audience. Only then did he back off and distance himself from supporting Bush on immigration. Dobbs' veiws have, over a much longer time frame, evolved more and more towards the Restrictionist side of the debate. This is impart because Dobbs himself makes a sincere attempt to learn from his audience, does his own research and is commited to serious honest journalism. Furthermore at no time was Dobbs ever a shill for an anti-worker Pro-Open Borders agenda.

B, Obama's militant commitment to Open Borders is a lot stronger than the Left-wing Profs on his immigration policy study group. What about Barry Obama's BBF, professional mentor, radical hippie, unrepentent weather underground ex-terrorist, flag stomping, turn Maoist "social justice" indoctrination advocating education professor and guru, William Ayers? Together these two held leadership positions on the boards of several charitable trust like the Woods and Anneberg Funds dispensing millions to Open Borders, Reconguista advocacy groups like La Raza, MALDEF, LULAC... Ayers has been a big supporter of MALDEF's forcing of school districts and colleges to sanction and fund MEChA clubs. Check out the DiscovertheNetwork and Wiki pages on the Woods Fund & Ayers

what about hate crimes against whites? oh whites can't have crimes done because whites are not human? or because whtes don't figure into the statistics since whites don't have any rights? or because the system needs whites to disappear soon? all you see is propaganda made out of hate and its not white race hate but third world hate for freedom.

Mr. Obama seems to have some difficulty to get his facts straight: 57 States, 10,000 victims, and so on. He's either incompetent, on something, mistaken or lying. One cannot tell which for sure.

I honestly think he and his cronies get together in back rooms and crack up laughing at all the little sheep that are believing what he spouts. They rub their hands together and tell each other how easy its going to be to take this country to who knows where. Communism perhaps...who knows. I have never seen so much brain washing going on. Check out the hits on anything Obama. Can you imagine what it would be like if he had real power. Google government???? Get real. We need to get rid of government and he wants to make it transparent. Can we please make it gone along with him and his associates.

_Thankfully your conspiranoid bullshit is too stale to get any exposure outside the dreadfully incestuous right wing blog clusterfuck._ Yes, you're right. Suddenly I am longing for "hope" -- no, not just hope, but even more, 'The Audacity of Hope' -- and "change". So I'm voting for Obama. Because I want his wife to be proud of me. And now, thanks to Senator Obama, I realize my mother was so wrong to cross the street to avoid walking by groups of young black men. But I have one question: What kind of fucking dickweed writes a book called 'The Audacity of Hope'?
