Obama: 78 percent of Americans are Racists

That's the conclusion to which one must arrive in deciphering Obama's comments regarding the overturning of a Hazelton, PA law that would have cracked down on illegal immigration; a menace which has brought drugs, violence and other crimes to the beleaguered area. But Obama, being ever the elitist, was completely oblivious to the problems that local population in Hazelton was trying to deal with:
Even as Sen. Barack Obama found himself under fire from the Hillary Clinton campaign over what she called his "naive" intention to meet with leaders of countries hostile to the U.S., the presidential hopeful praised the recent court decision overturning one city's attempt to protect itself from hostile foreigners filling their streets with drugs, crime and gangs as "a victory for all Americans."

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Munley overturned Hazleton, Pa.'s "Illegal Immigration Relief Act" in a 206-page opinion that declared states and municipalities have no authority to stem illegal immigration.
Further demonstrative of the cluelessness that is the essence of Obama can be found in this passage:
“The anti-immigrant law passed by Mayor Barletta was unconstitutional and unworkable – and it underscores the need for comprehensive immigration reform so local communities do not continue to take matters into their own hands,” he said.
And just what is wrong with local communities controlling their own destiny and solving their own problems, Mr. Obama? Must everyone sit around on with their thumbs up their collective asses to the third knuckle, waiting for the omnipotent and omniscient elitists in centralized governmental bureaucracies to solve all their problems for them?

Obama went on to criticize the blocking of the Senate immigration reform amnesty bill:

Obama, addressing the National Council of La Raza's annual convention in Miami Beach last week, called the debate that defeated the Senate immigration bill "both ugly and racist in a way we haven't see since the struggle for civil rights" and pointed to his marching in the May 2006 immigration rallies in his appeal for the group's support.

Well, Senator Obama, given that only 22 percent of Americans supported the measure (with a full 50 percent of Americans dead set against it), might we feel it safe to assume that you believe that the 78 percent of Americans opposed to unfettered illegal immigration are racists?

I thought so.
