The Writer Behind the Michelle Obama "Whitey" Rumors

Click to Read

The Writer Behind the Michelle Obama "Whitey" Rumors Still no sign of that rumored video of Michelle Obama saying bad stuff about white people. Reason magazine suggests that might be because a guy named Larry Johnson has been going around slangin' lies about a video he's never seen. The magazine's blog claims Johnson sits at the epicenter of the Michelle Obama video frenzy as the "blogger who's done the most to make the rumors public," and goes on to document the ways in which Johnson has changed his story about the purported video.

HF - it was just suppose to be Mayor Daley but he came out. Too many people - you would think they would be at work. :lol: I had to squeeze to get a good view.

I've never seen Michelle Obama be anything but intelligent, gracious and funny in interviews, I've never seen anything that said there were whispers that she's a horrific racist, her kids seem to be happy and move comfortably through groups of all different kinds of people, and people seem to like her. So I'm not going to be on pins and needles until October.

cab, you are so right, the later the better for McCain. Does this mean we have to be on pins and needles until the election is over??

I highly doubt such a tape exists. But, if it does, and its in the wrong hands, they would be smarter to wait until like Oct 27th to release it than to release it now. I heard speculation a while back that it might have been someone associated with the Obama camp that released the Rev. Wright stuff when that all hit because if you think about it, he was already ahead and had it come out closer to general election day, that would have been about 100 times worse... Its just a conspiracy theory, but this is politics, so who knows!

apparently there is a book by stephen frey with the same kind of premise. there is a diary of it on dailykos, here is the link http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/6/6/123441/5219/827/531074 its a very interesting read. also the website http://reason.com/blog/show/126883.html has like three different versions of the story the guy was trying to push. i heard this garbage on talk radio yesterday and the host was all serious in explaining it, and where he was getting this 'information' was from a hillary website so that explain some things. and like others said if the tape really did exist then obama would have been out of running a long time ago because there would have been non stop coverage of it.

Live of course. Jill I ran in the heat come on. He's back in Chicago ---I don't know for how long.

You mean you saw him speak live?? Or was it on tv?? :o

BTW-Jill I saw OB today. I ran over on lunch to catch his speech on how proud he is that Chicago is a finalist for the Olympics. Very inspiring –since he said he would be in his second term. :LOL:

Anyone who believes in garbage like this is a complete fool. I feel as a nation, we have come to accept very low standards of political information. I do feel, however, that part of the reason so many people support Obama is because they are tired of this kind of nonsense. In a way, I think it strengthens the people who demand more...it makes them work harder for truth in political disucssion, that that work provides real results.

Yep. Even if a rumor is debunked, it doesn't matter; the message will be repeated over and over. Thanks, Karl Rove!

The sad thing is people hear things and take it as the truth they would swear on with their holy book.

I've heard this rumor repeated for at least a couple of months. It the tape exsisted it would have been released when Rev Wright was being shown on tv every 2 minutes.

If this video did exist, we would have all seen it on you tube by now. There would be no reason to with hold it. Especially since the guy who is spreading this rumor is a Hillary supporter. Wouldn't it have made the most sense to release it while the primary season was still going on?

my boyfriend was telling me about this like it was the truth, i told him unless he has proof he is wasting my time. its political brilliancy to paint barack obama and everyone around him as "racists". the sad thing is that there is a strong number of people buying into this garbage

The last 8 years have definitely proved the adage about repeating a lie often enough that it becomes the truth.Even if the tape existed, I'd vote for Obama over McCain.
