Orson Scott Card: Obama Will Create 'Urban Gang' National Police

Orson Scott Card
Deciding to take a break from being a homophobic loony, the Ender's Game author is in the media for being a racist loony. In Orson Scott Card's own words

Obama will put a thin veneer of training and military structure on urban gangs, and send them out to channel their violence against Obama's enemies.
Instead of doing drive-by shootings in their own neighborhoods, these young thugs will do beatings and murders of people "trying to escape" -- people who all seem to be leaders and members of groups that oppose Obama.
"Urban gangs" and "inner-city" have long been dog whistles for "black people" among racist conservatives. Though Card mentions in his essay that he's engaging in an "experiment of fictional thinking", it's telling that he regards his paranoid political fantasy about Obama being in charge forever with a personal gang army as plausible, even though it is nothing of the sort.

  1. I don't know why he continues to write. He could make zillions with his psychic abilities.

  2. He is so absurd. I thought his PR will keep him shut till the release of Ender's game, but he seems unable to keep his mouth shut.
    He is a lunatic, and i think Lionsgate is going to regret to be linked with him

  3. It amazes me that anyone gives him an outlet for his outlandish ideas, much less his writing. Can't we just stop covering him, in the hope he'll crawl back under a rock?

  4. The way this was typically phrased 50 years ago: " the n****** are coming to get us"

  5. His every utterance confirms my decision to avoid anything he has authored.

  6. basic schlubby nerd trying hard to overcome the (apparently much needed) bullying he got as a child. Very Karl Rove; hateful, immature, and irresponsible men/children

  7. Who knew the aliens were coming so soon.

  8. Card has the US of A mixed up with Putin's attempt to recreate the USSR by "unofficially" sanctioning gangs of vigilantes to strike terror into the populace.

  9. Good sci-fi is timeless.

    Bad sci-fi, I mean, really awful and forgettable sci-fi, takes it's cues from weird petty fleeting trite political sloganeering.

    The media is great at making nobodys somebody for much longer than the 15 minutes they didn't deserve to begin with.

  10. Being a Mormon is an exercise in fictional thinking and not a positive one.

  11. Orson Scott Victim Card strikes again.

  12. I take it this guy hasn't updated his look since 1974. It even looks like his mom still cuts his hair with a bowl. Just pathetic. No wonder he hates men who find other men pretty.

  13. I'd say this guy's channeling his own sublimated erotic fantasies.

  14. I guess he doesn't want urban audiences to see Ender's Game.

    Shocking that someone on the NOM board is also a racist. Their strategy to divide gays and urban people did not work.

  15. Once again, a good reason to never have anything to do with anything Orson Scott Card ever spews from mouth or word processor.

    Posted by: Gordon | Aug 17, 2013 5:22:12 PM


  16. This is why it is so exhausting to hear people in the media describe Card as someone who "merely" disagrees with gay marriage.

  17. He's a Mormon. He doesn't know any better.

  18. I hear that Orson Scott Card has been to bed with Rush Limbaugh.

    Wouldn't they be so cute sucking each other's cock?

    Or, at least, more authentic.....

  19. Keep in mind: Card is an official spokes-puppet of the LDS Church.

  20. Excellent. More of this please, Mr. Card :) The more bad PR leading up to his film will hopefully lead to a bigger flop. I hope it tanks! /giddy

  21. please put down the crack pipe Mr. Card and step away from the drugs

  22. Another Mormon bigot to be sure. But he is right about one thing. Obama is making use of urban youth. Some of them he uses as thugs and some of them he hired to work on his billion dollar campaign.

    But I say at least it's a job for these boys. It may be the only job they ever have.

  23. It's is so pathetic that you've sunk to pretending to be Little Kiwi to air your racist screeds Rick.

    You'd think that the violent threats would have been enough, but now you do this.

    It's rather pathetic and completely cowardly.

  24. Read one of Card's Ender books back in the 80s, thought it the tedious scribbling of a mediocre talent. Maybe "mediocre" was too generous.

    Posted by: Onnyjay | Aug 17, 2013 10:39:59 PM


  25. Clearly this is Obama's true agenda. That is why he has already started organizing these urban gangs, and training them, and issuing them uniforms and...

    What? He hasn't?

    Oh.

    Never mind.
