Yvette Carnell: What Will be the Right Wing Response if Obama Wins Reelection?

by Yvette Carnell

In a previous post, I expounded on Tavis Smiley’s list of excuses black people will make if President Obama loses reelection. The list included the following:

  1. Obama didn’t want the job anymore. Who’d want to deal with all that racism day in and day out!
  2. White people used Obama to clean up their mess, then threw him away.
  3. Joe Biden!
  4. Obama miscalculated, threw the first debate with the rope-a-dope, but couldn’t come back quick enough.
  5. That Libya stuff was a set up

And my favorite of all: It’s all the fault of  Tavis Smiley, Cornel West, Boyce Watkins, and Yvette Carnell.

But what hasn’t been thoroughly explored is how white conservative fanatics will react if President Obama is reelected. What will they do? What excuses will they make if Romney loses? Here are a few predictions:

  1. Armageddon – This reaction  includes the belief that we’re headed for what old folks call the” end times”..  It will lead many on the right to believe that Obama must be stopped somehow, by any means necessary. It’s the sort of thinking that makes many of the zealots on the right so dangerous.
  2. Left wing conspiracy.
  3. Illegal aliens stole the election for Obama.
  4. Romney wasn’t conservative enough.
  5. I just gotta work harder to “take my country back!
  6. Dumb liberals.
  7. Muslim curse.
  8. This is just evidence that liberals hate America!
  9. This is a challenge sent by Jesus (like how Glenn Beck said Romney was behind in the polls so God could work a miracle)
  10. Violence.
Violence is the worst of all possible outcomes, but states rights types are known for throwing v*****t fits when they can’t have their way. Isn’t that what led to the Civil War?
We can be sure that if Obama wins, he will (still) be viewed as an illegitimate president. And it doesn’t matter how many birth certificates President Obama presents, he will always be viewed as the outsider in a long list of white presidents. No one should expect that to change.
If Obama wins, it’s gridlock for four years, but gridlock is certainly better than some grand conservative experiment, so there’s that.

    I am an Independent, but I hope Obama wins. For world peace and a better foreign policy, Obama is the man to elect.

    All the incendiary rhetoric is just that. Bottom line, this is a Federal Republic not a democracy so mob rule (democracy) is off-set by the Electoral College. Most people in America just want peace & the ability to earn a good living & maintain their lifestyle. As erection time approaches insecurity reigns supreme & it’s all BS.
    There are definitely some far-out & dangerous nut-jobs out there in both parties. Remember what democratic senator Byrd said about Martin Luther King? This revered democrat (Byrd,) said King was just a trouble maker. Everybody seems to hate somebody sometime & they just can’t seem to get over it. It’s all insincere, insulting BS. Peace & love & vote as your conscience guides you.

    Well, I already voted for Obama. The reason is hr is following the Keynesian economic prescription fkr economic recovery. The economic indicators back it up. The only complaint I had is the same as Nobel Laureate in Economics, Paul Krugman, says: he didn’t come hard enough. In his second term, Mr. Obama needs to discard his Lincolb hat and put his Franklin Roosevelt hat and his Lyndon Johnson boxing gloves. Now, Yvette Arnold,.I have not read one time where you did anything but criticize black supporters of Obama (never the white ones). as we do not have the sense to support him without valid reasons. I am not impressed with your white house credentials since you do not seemto be very knowledgeable, and your reasoning is very weak.All the economic experts I have researched say Obama is on the money. If I made typos it is because I am usi.g my Android in a shopping mall.
