Confiscated: Obama Afraid Latinos Will Attack Him With Forks At Luncheon

Imagine if Bush had insulted his Latino guests like this.

Latinos with forks, that seems to be Obama’s newest fear. At least, that’s the case judging from his actions at this years National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) luncheon since Obama had the Secret Service confiscate all the dinner forks from the participants at the June 22 event held in Orlando, Florida.

I guess Obama doesn’t worry about millions of illegal immigrants taking our jobs, getting free schooling and social services, but he’ll be darned if they’ll be allowed to eat dinner with forks like a civilized person, at least not with him around, anyway.

Several participants Tweeted that butter knives were banned outright and forks were confiscated as soon as the diners finished eating and before the President entered the room to speak.

Now, these attendees are supposed to be elected officials and their staffs, not just the average Jose off the street. And still Obama feared them enough to take away their forks like they were inmates at a prison or something. I am sure many of these elected officials are wondering what the heck is up with that little bit of distrust?

Dan Amira of New York Magazine has a bit of fun showing photos of all the times that Obama has been in the room with “fork wielding strangers” in the past, but it seems to me that this removal of forks by Obama would have been treated as prima facie evidence of racism if Obama were a Republican President.

I mean, imagine if a Republican was so afraid of all those scary brown people that he had the Secret Service confiscate their forks before he deigned to speak to them?

If Bush had done it, this would be leading the news from sea to shining sea and he’d be scolded as a racist that fears Latinos. It would be further said that his re-election prospects would have been dimmed by his racist actions.

Thereā€™d be protests, attacks by late night comedians, political cartoons in newspapers, web pages started all in an effort to excoriate a president so afraid of Hispanics.

I am sure, though, that this obvious mistrust that Obama has for these elected Latino officials will go practically unnoticed by the Old Media as it chugs along aboard the Obama express.
