Obama Panders to the National Council of La Raza

Dogs bark, Donkeys bray, Ducks quack and Politicians pander. Especially now, as Presidential hopefuls travel around the country making student council-like campaign promises.

Pandering occurs by politicos from all political parties, there is no question about this. Pandering may be described as many things: strange, unwarranted, unnecessary or “bizarre”.

Star Parker wrote a column titled, “Barack Obama’s Strange Ethnic Politics”, in which she calls Barack Obama’s pandering to a Hispanic activist group, “bizarre”.

While at the annual meeting of the National Council of La Raza, Senator Obama, according to the Wall Street Journal,

compared last year’s massive immigration rallies led by Hispanics to the civil-rights marches of African-Americans in the 1960s…

Parker finds this “bizarre” and she lays out her reasoning. A snippet,

The injustices that blacks suffered had to do with lack of equal treatment and due process of law for our own citizens because of their race.

The civil rights of blacks, U.S. citizens, protected under the Constitution, that were being violated were clear. What exactly are the rights of illegals that, according to Obama, are being violated? They have violated us, not we them.

The lady might have a point, but at the same time what can be taken seriously coming from the mouth of any Presidential hopeful?
