"Keep The N*gger Out Of Office"

Cops: Man threatened voter officials over tardy registration card

OCTOBER 8--Angered by a delay in the receipt of his voter registration card, a Louisiana man today threatened election officials, claiming that he urgently needed to cast a ballot to "keep the nigger out of office," according to police. Wade Williams, 75, was arrested this morning on a felony terrorizing charge after allegedly calling the Registrar of Voters and warning that he would come to the state office and empty his shotgun unless he got his registration card. Using profanity and racial slurs, Williams told a state official "about needing to vote to 'keep the nigger out of office," according to an Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office affidavit, a copy of which you'll find here. Though the document does not name the candidate to which Williams is so violently opposed, it seems likely he was referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. After being arrested at his Monroe home, Williams was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center, where the below mug shot was snapped. En route to the jail, he "continued his 'tirade' about niggers and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence," reported Lt. Michael Judd.

The man is blatant and more honest than McCain and Palin are. They are trying subtly to objectify Senator Obama. They are pandering to the fact that people in this day and age know that it is not acceptable to say out loud what they think when it comes to prejudice, whether it be racial, ethnic, feminist, sexual orientation, or others.

Though I despise what Wade Williams said, he was honest. Mcpain is not, and what they are doing to hide it is attack Obama for his honesty, trust and past. It's a tried and true practice that goes back millenia.
