BREAKING: Obama Campaign Attacks Geraldine Ferraro Because She’s White

TPM is covering this shocking development, which has stunned white people everywhere and produced an outpouring of love and compassion for the victim, who is not going to tolerate this outrage:

Any time anybody does anything that in any way pulls this campaign down and says let’s address reality and the problems we’re facing in this world, you’re accused of being racist, so you have to shut up,” Ferraro said. “Racism works in two different directions. I really think they’re attacking me because I’m white. How’s that?

In a noble effort to defend her whitehood and the whitehood of all whites, Geraldine Ferraro appeared on FOX and warned that the Obama campaign needs to stop antagonizing her:  

Obama, Obama, Obama . . . will you please stop attacking Geraldine Ferraro because she’s white?  She can’t help it, she was born white and she’s been white ever since, like many other white people who were born white and have had to bear that burden their entire lives.  

Stop it, Obama.

Just stop it.

Stop trying to score cheap political points by attacking nice white ladies like Geraldine just because they’re white.  

And quit being so rude to Hillary.  It’s her turn to be president, so quit parading around all over the place asking people to vote for you instead.

If you still want my vote, Obama I suggest you call Hillary at 3 AM tonight and apologize.  

This guy will probably answer the phone . . .

karl rove

but just ask him to roll over and hand the phone to Hillary so you can tell her you’re sorry and won’t ever attack any white people ever again.

    can you believe that? i thought i’d done most of it weeks ago.

    yet the clothes, the pictures on the wall, and toiletries, towels. oh. and shoes. comforters. sheets and pillows. it’s amazing how much thought it takes to actually pack this stuff.

    unless, of course, i lose my mind and do something sane

    like throw all this shit away, save my self a few thousand dollars, and just show up in NL with a suitcase.

    i’ve been a bit tense. now i’m getting edgy.

    issues of race? nothing compared to what i’m going through.

    yes. it IS all about me.

    must be because i’m white

  2. I thought everyone was talking about this Geraldine:

    For my money, Flip makes a much better pitch to the white vote in Appalachia than Ferraro does.

  3. I’ll admit that I didn’t know much about Ferraro when she ran for VP (no intertubes then and I was frankly, pretty uneducated), but her candidacy meant alot to me personally. Now, to see this from her hits deep.

    I don’t want to draw too many unsupported conclusions from this, but it seems to me that some of the white feminists of her day might still be too caught up in seeking power the way the good ol boys have always done – by tearing down and scratching their way to the top. I think its time to find a new way that opens people’s eyes and brings everyone along with you. If I have to call my sisters on that one, I’m prepared to do so. The good ol boys way is how we got in this mess in the first place.

  4. I’m white, male, and Christian.  From what I’ve seen on the Fox News Channel I belong to the most persecuted group in American history.

  5. Black men always get all the breaks in this country.  mI’m so glad Gerry pointed it out.

    One thing my Hubby noticed a few months ago, was suprise, the media trying to make the race about race.  They were taking things out of context (Seeing the original, and comparing to their reports) to make it racial.  Looks like they got their way.  Geraldine decided to play to them.  She sure got attention.

    Its just going to get uglier folks.
