    Obama and head scarved women



    Here is a good example of how shitty politics can be. Evidently Obama is giving a speech somewhere and two women wearing head scarves make a point to sit directly behind him so the cameras catch two scarf wearing muslim women sitting behind him.

    Now if that isn't an obvious set up. Just think what kind of picture that would be for our alarmist nation certain that Obama is a jihadist plant? These women make the point that they are supporters of Obama. Really? and they don't see the field day the conservatives would have with that photo op? They are either very naive or were sent to create controversy.

    One of them is a 25 year old lawyer which leads me to rule out naivete'. So now they make the case of "well we really like Obama because we felt he was different and tolerant of all but now maybe we think differently of him".

    Brilliant stuff. Watch the american public eat this one up.

    Are you really claiming this was a Hillary-esque "vast right wing conspiracy" tactic?

    Let's entertain your Black Helicopter theory you seem to have and then work it to its logical conclusion. Suppose someone from the right did manage to sit two Muslim women in the front row of HIS event, somehow usurped his own staff and managed to seat someone in camera shot wearing hijabs. That still doesn’t change the fact that someone from his staff removed them for wearing them!

    If it was a set up, they were racist about who sat up front.

    Or they were we not set up and acted the EXACT SAME THING .... Choose your poison .... Either way, the staffers were assholes!

    Dude I have read this post 5 times and it still makes no sense to me...and I am not speaking in a political sense but in an english language sense.

    there is also nothing racist about the event...wearing a head scarf is not a racist issue. I was in an islamic country last year and most of the scarfs were on white people. What's your point?

    If I read your post right, you are making a claim that the two women with hijabs (I already am suspect you were in an Islamic country and called them scarfs and you didnt get corrected 100 times) we're planted there to "create controversy".

    Am I right so far?

    If so, then who created the controversy? Your post suggests it was a conservative conspiracy. Which is why I started the post with my question.

    I really didn't go around asking women about their scarfs or hijabs so I wasn't corrected 100 times plus I don't have the need to be so bombastic.

    Well I am suggesting that there is conspiring for sure. If staff sensed this then the women should have been asked to move. They refused. My point is if they truly support Obama, they would understand the staff's request and they would have moved. Because they refused, it is my opinion there is more going on.

    Not sure how you get to the idea that the staff members are racist since there is no indication that the women were of any particular race. AS I said whether you want to believe it or not, there are a lot of muslims that are not black. The fact that you go right to racist overtones is interesting.

    Honestly with what Obama has to deal with...the fact that there are people out there that think he is a jihadist plant, do you really think it would be prudent for him to have photos, without the proper context explained, of covered women behind him? I can see the commercials already.
