The German magazine Spiegel (pronounced Shhhhhhh-::phlegm glob::-peagle) has run a revealing interview with The Lightworker.
Many blogs mocked a fawning pro-Obama article in which German journalist Judith Bonesky professed her, um… enthusiasm… for the Senator’s wares. Unlike Bill Clinton, Obama wasn’t going to take this heavy flirtation lying down.
“She hustled us,” he told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.
“We walk into the gym,” Obama told Dowd. “She’s already on the treadmill. She looks like just an ordinary German girl. She smiles and sort of waves, shyly, but doesn’t go out of her way to say anything. As I’m walking out, she says: ‘Oh, can I have a picture? I’m a big fan.’ Reggie takes the picture.” Reggie Love is Obama’s personal assistant.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. “Ordinary German girl,” Senator? Is that like your grandmother being a “typical white person”?
What exactly does an “ordinary German girl” look like? Let me guess, a blonde-braided bar wench spilling out of her lederhosen while sloshing around beer steins and listening to Kraftwerk?
Of course an “ordinary German girl” couldn’t possibly be a respected citizen of Turkish, African, or even Portuguese-Korean descent.
Instead, you find a trollop who conforms to your shallow, middle-class ethnic stereotypes and assume that all Germans must look just like her. Pathetic. I’ll have you know that my grandfather was German and he was a brunette just like his father, thank you very much.
Sen. Obama, sir, YOU are an intractable RACIST. German-Americans of every hair color deserve, nay, DEMAND a full and immediate apology!
(Wow, who knew playing the race card was so fun? I could get used to this.)
The article continues…
In his conversation with Dowd, Obama likened his experience in the Berlin gym with a scene from the movie “The Color of Money.”
“Do you remember ‘The Color of Money’ with Paul Newman?” Obama asked Dowd. “And Forest Whitaker is sort of sitting there, acting like he doesn’t know how to play pool. And then he hustles the hustler.”
A-ha! So you’re not only a racist, but a hustler too!
