Posts Tagged ‘Barack Obama’

I’ve been going back and forth with so called “progressive Democrats” about their attacks on Obama being no different then attacks on Obama from the right. Then it hit me. These attacks are coming from the Hillary Clinton voter base. They never really warmed up to the idea of a black man leading them and never got over Hillary losing.

It’s like the kid on the basketball court that gets upset because his team loses and takes the basketball home with him immediately after the loss so that no one continues to play.

Trust me, Republicans are taking note:

The Clinton Voters Jump Ship

Obama’s shrinking base

I’m surprised they (Clinton supporters) didn’t turn on him (Obama) sooner… like one year into his Presidency. Oh that’s right, we are one year into his Presidency.

I expected this. , however.

This post serves as a check point and archive of the various racist events that I have witnessed during the Obama Administration which were directed towards Barack Obama.  They speak for themselves…

obama-witchdoctor-muck

This depiction of President Barack Obama emailed to other conservatives stating that Obama is an “African Witch Doctor” that will cause the quality of care in the country to worsen, caused it’s creator

Dr. david-mckalip (name in caps intended to show no respect for person)

to issue a statement that he would withdraw from public debate about a public health care plan.

The actual pic that was altered isn’t even that of an African Witch Doctor.  It’s a Papua New Guinea tribesman…

I wonder if he has any black patients that has seen this…

Anyway, this is the first entry, though I will be going backwards towards January 09 to find and post other examples of Digital Jim Crow…

Republican Mayor Sends Hilarious “Not Racist” White House ‘n Watermelon Joke

Watermelon patch in the lawn of the Obama White House

The Mayor joked, “No Easter Egg Hunt this year.” Ha ha, because Muslims don’t celebrate Easter, right? (Sure, they celebrate Good Friday, but anyway ….)

Ousted Staten Island education official apologizes over racist e-mail

Mock Photo Strip sent by Salvatore Ballarino

The e-mail, which Ballarino forwarded on Jan. 4 to about 30 people, depicted a photo strip of a mock debate between Barack Obama and John McCain that was rife with racist jokes about black people, including comparisons of African American babies to excrement.

GOP candidate wins despite racism flap

audra-shay-young republicans-facebook-03_233200859004

Thirty-eight-year-old Audra Shay’s campaign to become the next chairman of the Young Republicans went from obscure to infamous over the past week, after The Daily Beast revealed details of posts of her Facebook account. Specifically, a thread where one of her friends posts that “Obama Bin Lauden [sic] is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals,” and Shay responds eight minutes later with: “You tell em Eric! lol.”

“This is an outrage and I CAN NOT believe this nation has him as our leader! It makes me sick!” She posted a few minutes later: “My disdain for Obama is directly proportionate for his disdain of this country.”

The reason I’ve been a registered independent for the past 10 years is demonstrated by the actions of the so called “Blue Dog Democrats” with respects to health care reform.

I believed that Bill Clinton AND Hillary Clinton were “blue dog Democrats” all along. They were just smarter ones then those who are currently blocking health care reform. I mean, the State of North Carolina is dominated by the Democrat Party at the state level. I have found their political behavior to be akin to that of Republicans when it comes to corruption and bigotry here in the State of North Carolina.

Now Kay Hagan, MY SENATOR, is essentially identifying with the coalation of Democrats (Blue Dog Democrats) who  are in opposition to a public health care plan?

!#&@*^%+ (WTF is Wrong with This Woman)

It’s a new day. With blogs and whatnot, Kay’s gotta learn that this type of behavior will surely see to it that she is a one term politician. The only way her sorry arse beat Elizabeth Dole is because those of US who voted for her sorry arse wanted someone in there who would be for change.

Instead, Hagan is the status quo! What’s the difference between Dole and Hagan so far? Nothing! Oh, and those rural voters who suffer the most with respects to receiving sub par health care, they got the internet now. They see your behavior.

If the Republicans can waste 1 trillion on a war that did not bring one benefit to the American people, then  1 trillion spent on Health care reform that benefits ALL American People is money that is better spent.

If Hagan was saying that she opposed the reform because it allowed illegals to benefit from the plan, then I’d understand. But this crap about it being too expensive. That what’s getting you in trouble.

http://www.nationalpriorities.org/costofwar_home

How dare Republicans and these punk Democrats that allow their Republican Masters to pull their strings bring up cost issues. The People are well aware of the money they wasted on the War in Iraq the past 6 years. That’s why their on the ropes.

Spend MY MONEY/TAXES on something that I do support, health care reform. Not on funding the pockets of the Republicans constituents, the banking industry, the military industrial complex the health care industry and the Oil industry.

I think we need to take a look and what Glaxo and the Bayer’s out there are contributing to Kay Hagan. It looks like she might be in their pocket…

Michael Steele is trying to woo blacks into the GOP joking that he’d bring “fried chicken and potato salad to a GOP cookout for the recruitment of blacks while a gay black blogger would bring the “collard greens”.

This dude is a clown.

And how come every time I go into Bojangles here in NC, there are more whites in there eating “fried chicken” then any other customer?

Cue the Rakim. I haven’t blogged in a while. I get a lot of vacation. So I take a lot of vacation…

Anyway, as Rush Limbaugh would say it, Barack the magic Negro has finished picking his administrative team.

By the way, I like to put the ignorance of so called intelligent white people like Rush Limbaugh and his ditto heads  in full display.

I want to first start off by saying that Obama aligning himself with Jewish extremist such as Rahm Emmanuel and others of his like is a mistake.

Notice I said “extremist”. This guy is a former member of the Israeli Army.  Like I said in past post.  I DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ISRAEL. I do not care about it.

I am tired of matters involving Jews affecting the lives of the majority non-Jewish population of the United States. From Bernard Madoff to Joe Lieberman to Paul Wolfowitz to William Kristol to Richard Perle to Louis “Scooter” Libby, it is quite prevalent that JEWS GET US INTO SHIT.

Having Emmanuel as Chief of Staff and other neo con minded Jews in his administration will ensure that they WILL CONTINUE TO GET US INTO SHIT. Unless Obama has the wherewithal to stand up to them behind closed doors and say, NO, YOUR ISSUES (ISREAL) WILL TAKE A BACK SEAT TO ISSUES INVOLVING THE MAJORITY NON-JEWISH PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY.

If Obama does that and survives such a stand, then I’d have to say he is going to be one of the best Presidents ever! Standing up to the neo-con Jewish state in the U.S. makes standing up to Russia and Iran look like child’s play.

THEY have been the all powerful force in this country that has steered American policy during the Clinton AND Dupya Bush and his fathers  years in the White House. That’s 20 years!

We need a break from that crap!

They are to blame for the mess that we are in today. They gave us this:

And was hell bent on giving us this:

http://www.abcnews.go.com/Nightline/Politics/Story?id=6196407&page=2,

Today, they have the gall to post crap like “Obama supporters and Obama are going to ruin this country” crap.

YOU HAVE RUINED THIS COUNTRY WITH YOUR PAST UNEDUCATED VOTES FOR BUFFOONS!

You have the nerve to state that “most of the new voters voting Democrat should not be voting because they don’t understand the process and could choose someone UNWISELY.

!@##%$^^^&*

(TRANSLATED NICELY, THIS IS WHAT YOU FOOLS DID THE PAST 8 YEARS WHEN YOU VOTED FOR DUPYA!)

I will not rest and let you fools get away with what you did. Number one, GOP/Conservative/Red State/Republican supporters have lost all credibility. Every time you try to spout some type of ill conceived notion that “see that, see this” is an example of Obama going against his word, you need to remember that NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU TRAITORS TO OUR DEMOCRACY THINKS.

Your attempts to destroy our democracy is not going unnoticed, Nor are will your attempts to further harm it go unchallenged.

This is precisely why Obama chose Rahm as his Chief of Staff. He is equipping his staff with “people who carry big sticks”. Obama is smart enough to know what the right is going to bring.

BRING IT…

Everyone knows that Fox News is the talking head of the GOP. It’s only fitting to highlight a report of Sarah Palin’s ineptitude that reinforces what I believe a majority of Americans came to believe prior to the November 4th election. That Sarah Palin was and is unqualified to be anywhere near the White House…

Republicans. You guys don’t get it. The most important factor of the election of Barack Obama  as President was the fact that WE NOW ALL KNOW THAT HE IS AN INTELLIGENT MAN.

Male or female, I believe the next President after Obama should at least meet this criterion. George Bush was and still is an idiot. John McCain could not hold press conferences without a teleprompter or looking down at his written speech throughout the event; and Sarah Palin, well let’s just say that we also know that George W. Bush does not read newspapers, magazines or books. How different can she be from ole Dupya? Not much at all.

Republicans, in the future it’s going to take more then good looks, the ability to put your fingertips together to portray an “executive” posture while speaking (see any video of Rudy Guliani, Sarah Palin or ole foot in her mouth Carly Fiorina) and references to statements that your regular folk just like everyone else, to convince the majority of “regular folk” to vote your butts back into leadership.

The cat’s out of the bag. Dupya, exposed you all for what you really are, self serving liars who don’t give a rats ass about the middle class. You only care about your membership in the upperclass and your fellow upperclass members issues.

Stop ascending stupid, stubborn, angry people to your leadership positions (see Sarah Palin, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Chaney and Tom Delay) and you might make some inroads in the future.

Ditto heads.

Could not resist. It’s clear Republican ideology of “leave big businesses alone in the candy store and workers will prosper” has demonstrated that leaving big business alone in the candy store gets them fat with profits/bonuses while workers have to clean up their throw-up from eating too much candy.

Then they get laid off.

If Obama does not follow through with equipping federal agencies with the wherewithal to actually “enforce the regulations we already have in the books that effect essentially every key area of our economy”, then we should be alright.

THIS IS SOMETHING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION DID NOT DO. IN FACT, IT WENT TO EXTREMES TO MANDATE THEIR APPOINTEES TO INTERNALLY QUASH ANY ATTEMPT AT PROPER ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS TO THE DETRIMENT OF IT’S KEY CONTRIBUTORS, BIG BUSINESS.

If the Obama Administration bows to the special interest (e.g. lobbyist from the pharmaceutical, oil industry and their likes) then Democrats will have to suffer the wrath of the working American People!

I believe that once the lobbyist are told to back off and are shown that the White House is closed for business (of their sorts) , he’ll be able to affect REAL CHANGE that WE will begin to see by the end of his first term.

This means lights out for the GOP. No business of making deals with lobbyist as usual. And beware. There is another election coming in two years. Don’t want to risk losing more Senate seats. Now do you?

You better behave…

Took today off. Thought I’d write and just record my thoughts about this historic day. Will update as the day goes by…

Watched some CNN video of what Kenyans and Egyptians thought about the prospect of an Obama Presidency. It sent chills down my spine. It dawned on me that Obama has a direct connection to people in Africa and white people, but not really black Americans.

I don’t have a problem with this. i don’t think Obama owes anyone anything, But as a country, the US owes Africa plenty. I hope Obama finds a way to effect REAL CHANGE in that continent during his Presidency (IF he wins). One things for sure, McCain, a direct descendent from the reasons the US owes Africa (it’s chronicled how his family was VERY involved in the slave trade), won’t do a damn thing for that continent. In fact, I believe he will do less then Dupya did for the continent of Africa if he’s elected.

The reason I took today off was because after viewing the CNN video interviews of Africans, I got a sense of excitement that came over me. Maybe my people here will take to doing better among themeselves with a black man now President.

I foresee some black males rejecting this type of conversation. But I see quite a bit of them embracing it.  The statement “now is the time for us to get our selves together” popped up in my mind. Why not use Obama’s Presidency myself to motivate me into improving some of the areas in my own life that I know need improving?

I have decided to embrace this concept. It’s probably a good reason that I even wrote this blog. I wanted to record it. If don’t follow through with the improvements, I’ve got this blog to go back to and call myself out.

I know, I know. Those of you who are white (and even black/other) are probably wondering why I would need an occurance of an Obama Presidency to effect such a change. For me to embrace such a change.

I have long been the type that believed that i would hold up my end of the bargain when it came to carrying on the struggle for equality for black people in America. While I believe I have done a pretty good job at that, I certainly see an opportunity to further advance such a cause with the onset of a Black man becoming President and my becoming the best that I can be at being a hsuband, a dad, a co-worker and a friend.

Like other cliche statements, I too never thought I would see this day. I’m only 40. if you had asked me the probability of Obama becoming President a year ago, I would have said NO WAY. I pride myself in being a realist. Though it was clear the brotha had what it took to make it happen, I just never thought I’d see the day that whites in mass numbers would be swayed to vote for a black guy for the President of the United States of America. AND WITH A NAME LIKE BARACK OBAMA AT THAT! This country never seems to amaze. That’s the beauty of it and how great it is!

This goes to show you how much George Bush and the Republicans messed up the past 8 years. They got in there and acted plum fools. Essentially caused significant damage to a Republican Machine that had been, up to now, a well oiled machine in using fear tactics and scapegoat rhetoric as a key weapon in gaining power and persuation among the “white working class electorate”. THEY WERE LIKE KIDS IN A CANDY STORE WITHOUT REGULATION. Their tummy aches will be on display after today (I hope!)

Just got a response from a guy commenting on my post predicting an 8 point Obama victory. He says that “ofcourse I’m voting for the black guy”. I guess he’s right. But the story of this election is not that blacks voted for the black candidate in record numbers (that was a no brainer). It’s that WHITES voted for a black candidate in record numbers.

Just what does this mean? There will be plenty written on this in the future that will provide a clear understanding of this phenomenal occurrence. Maybe it had all to do with Bush and the Republican’s performance these past 8 years.

No matter how you spin it, you guys F’d Up!

Update: 1pm

Some reports via CNN say that a precinct in Wake County NC had some problems. Didn’t say where. Said the ballots were wet and would not go in the scanner. Now how did the ballots get wet? So what it’s raining. I bet you these ballots are the only ones that got wet and that they belong to a South East Raleigh precinct.

Geesh.

Essentially, the election coverage via the internet sucks this early in the game. (My opinion). However, I am finding that the BBC coverage and CNN International coverage is very good. it’s refereshing to see the world take on our election.

Fox News had these slugs on this morning who were just lambasting Obama. I’m curious as to how their ratings have been lately.

O.k., O.k.. It appears the reason the ballots were wet is from the fact that voters themselves are wet from standind in line outside in the rain. The water from their hands and sleeves are more then likely getting the ballots wet causing the problems and not any “funny business”.

I stand corrected… Maybe I am a little paranoid. O.K., After 2000, I way PARNANOID!

It was interesting to see a report out of Virginina that the head of a Library over slept causing the polls open late. The polls at that site should be extended open the exact amount of time the “head librarian” was late to the polling place.

———————————————————————————

Somewhere Harold Washington is smiling. I was young lad when Washington won Mayor of Chicago. I was old enough to understand just what a significant achievement it was for a black man in the city of Chicago to achieve such a feat. The man behind that plan, David Axelrod, did his thing again. Fact of the matter is, Harold Washington was on his way to becoming a fine Mayor of Chicago prior to his untimely death.

Update: 7pm

Had to step away and be a normal person/dad/husband and do some things. Well for the most part, it seems, overall, that things have gone O.K. My daughter is a vollunteer at a local polling place and she text me on her break saying that things had gone pretty smooth so far.

I see FoxNews is up to its old tricks…

This is certainly a desparate attempt to garner some type of attention. Essentially, since the GOP is not the toast of the politics atmosphere today, Fox News has got to do something to show it’s a legitimate news organization. This is not it. (As the interview with the poll manager in the Youtube video demonstrates above)

Now it’s “prime time” and the games really begin. Time to fire up streaming broadcasts of all of the major news sources (to include BBC and Asia Times.com)

What is all of this nonsense about “minority rule” and “blacks taking over”? These types of comments only show just how much preoccupied some white people are with race. A President is a leader of the People. ALL PEOPLE. Not just White people, but every single citizen of this country.

This has been the problem in the past. In fact, I believe that alot of White voters who are voting for Obama don’t have a problem doing so because they feel that Republican Leadership has not been looking out for all people, but just “rich people”.

This is the story of this election. Not the fact that Obama is black, but the fact that whites voting for Obama in mass is a statement that they too had had enough of tax breaks for the well to do. It’s really time for the common man to make some inroads on living a decent life IN THE GREATEST PLACE IN THE WORLD.

Gotta quote Don King, “Only in America. Only in America.”

7:24pm: Fox jut called Kentucky for McCain. We’ll see if that comes to fruition (wouldn’t be a surprise though) ABC shows that McCain has an 8 point lead in Florida and a 7 point lead in Virginia 9with less than 2% of votes counted)

It switched just as quick as that. ABC now shows Obama with a 48% to 34% lead in Florida. I know I can’t do this all night…

Text messages being sent to black voters telling them that they can vote Nov 5th. Facebook messages as well. The tricks of new millenium racial politics…

11:30pm:

OBAMA WINS!

The US looks ahead collectively. Makes a statement to the world that it is still the country of peace, liberty and prosperity for all!

This will hold true. I believe in this country and that the citizens, collectively, will do the right thing and vote Republicans out of power so the common man can breath. No socialism. Just breath…
