Obama Denies KKK Funding Charges

Barack Obama Denies Snoop Dog’s KKK AccusationsBarack Obama denies accusations that he’s funded by the Ku Klux Klan, Gone Hollywood‘s Cara Harrington reports.

“It is completely untrue,” the candidate said.

Given that Obama’s father is black and that he’s spent the last two weeks denying that he hates white people, it seems ridiculous that anyone would accuse him of being backed by a white supremacist group.

But, apparently, one Calvin Broadus, better known as “Snoop Dogg,” is the one leveling the charges. To whit:

He says, “The KKK gave Obama money. They was (sic) one of his biggest supporters… Why wouldn’t they be? The media won’t tell you that. They don’t want you to know that. They just want you to know that this n%*ger befriended this other n*#ger who be (sic) threatening your values. But we all know all presidents lie to get into f**king office. That’s they (sic) job.”

Snoop Dogg Says Obama Funded by KKK However, Dogg insists Obama will still emerge victorious in the October elections. He adds, “In America’s eyes, that muthaf*&ker’s gonna be president ‘cos (John) McCain can’t f#*k with him. Hillary (Clinton) can’t f*#k with him. He’s winning over white people, white ladies.”

Apparently, Broadus and Randi Rhodes took elocution lessons from the same tutor. At any rate, despite Snoop’s street cred, I’m inclined to believe Obama on this one.

    Yes James, and he never heard Wright preach hate in the twenty years he attended that church. I guess Jeremiah waited until B. Hussein was not present to make his DVD recorded radical, hate whitey sermons. Read his damn book. Read Ann Coulter’s column on Obama’s book. Get a clue who this POS is. Diogenese examined Obama and is still looking.

    Why even dignify this trip with space on your blog?

    I guess “as far as you know” this is crap…

    Sometimes things have simple amusement value.

  4. DL says:

    It’s possible that the Rev.Wright and the KKK have taken the same speech course at the University of Unsophisticated Hate.

    Are you sure there isn’t an April 1st date stamp on this somewhere?

  6. Solja says:

    I can guarantee you that this fool will take some serious hits in the black community for saying this. It should anger ANY black American, no matter who they are voting for, but it should also anger whites or jews or anyone else.

    And he wonders why he’s never been on Oprah. First off, he needs to stop talking publicly until he takes some English lessons because he’s a millionaire, not a poor, ghetto person in a city’s worst school system so he has no excuse for his absolute ignorance.

  7. Bocephus and then Snoop. Who’s next?

  8. Hern Berford says:

    It’s true. I personally know every single member of the KKK; they all chipped in a dollar. Snoopy speaks da troof.

  9. Richard Gardner says:

    That’s nice. Elocution? Did you take lessons?

    (Yes, I’m referring to an old joke)

    Wow! Put him on the campaign stage, give him a microphone, turn up the volume, and tell him to let it rip. This kind of thing helps win the democrat nomination but does serve you well in the general election.

    Snoop is one hot ghetto mess

    Well that’s hard to do sitting in a church that preaches hate against the white people. Snicker Snort Snort.

  13. Mike P says:

    Yes, I predict Obama will win the ‘October’ elections as the article states.

    He will not win the one in November that actually picks electors though.

    Paranoid delusions undergird that culture. Web posts by the “politically conscious” Chuck D generally read about coherently as Flavor Flav generally appears.

    You honkies be laughing out of the other side of your face when OBAMA wins. He will set you straight, whities!

  17. jainphx says:

    If he wins I’ll run for the boarder, yelling feet don’t fail me now.

  18. Trevor says:

    If snoop dawg says so, then it MUST be true!

    lol my racist liberal brother of another color, if he wins ill be crying out the other side of my face. I don’t think i’ll be able to Handel Slick Willy part 3.
