Al-Qaeda plays the race card against Barack Obama… no, seriously

By Griffin · November 19th, 2008 · 1 Comment

In what is the clearest and most hilariously pathetic example of how far Al-Qaeda has fallen since 9/11, today they actually resorted to race-baiting President-elect Barack Obama. No, seriously:

Al-Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri is criticizing Barack Obama in a new message, calling him a demeaning racial term implying that the president-elect is a black American who does the bidding of whites.

Al-Zawahri says in an audio message, which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X. He calls Obama a “house negro.”

American Prospect has labeled this “Al-Qaeda’s Most Epic Fail Ever.“  Joe Klein and Richard Clarke think it’s a telltale sign of how badly an Obama presidency has already knocked Al-Qaeda off its game.  The New Republic wonders how Al-Qaeda missed the conservative wingnut memo that Obama is actually Malcolm X’s illegitimate love child.

But the question has to be asked: what exactly is Al-Qaeda trying to accomplish here?  Are they trying to erode Obama’s support in Africa by playing the “He’s not black enough” card?  (That’s so 2007.) Are they trying to rally hard-working Iraqis, white Iraqis against the new Obama administration?  (The media likes to refer to them as “blue-collar” Iraqis, but we know who they’re talking about.)  Are they trying to provoke some kind of racial response-in-kind from Obama himself?  (Something his political opponents have collectively failed to do for a decade.)  Or are they just trying to secure a guest spot on the Sean Hannity Show?  (Take a number and get in line behind the rest of the anti-Semites.)

Whatever the reason, if Al-Qaeda wants to keep its spot as public enemy number one, they’re really going to have to stop embarrassing themselves like this.  Stick to the Great Satan stuff.  It was working for you.  Leave the race-baiting to the Clintons.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
