Obama is NOT the Anti-Christ, He’s Black and That’s the Problem

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Political correctness, be damned!  All of the racists and bigots out there need to just take it back to 1960 and call the President the N-Word!  I’m tired of the re-directing.  Stop coming up with random titles and false charges to apply to this man.  You are mad because the President of the United States is a Black man. Period. You are afraid.  You are outraged that a Black person has that much power.  You are a closeted racist and you know who you are.  You are so bold and you are so sure you’re right, why do you hide your true feelings?

LiveScience.com – Americans have some extreme views of President Obama, with a new survey revealing 40 percent of adults believe he is a socialist, and about a quarter of survey participants thinking the president is a racist, anti-American and even doing things Hitler did.

The whammy: 14 percent of Americans say President Barack Obama may be the Antichrist. When split by political party, 24 percent of Republicans and 6 percent of Democrats viewed the nation’s leader in this way.

The results come from a Harris Poll involving 2,320 adults who were surveyed online between March 1 and March 8 by Harris Interactive, a market research firm. Respondents were selected from among those who agreed to participate in Harris Interactive surveys. The results were then weighted to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population. [Infographic Compares Views]

Here’s the percentage breakdown of respondents’ views of President Obama:

  • 38 percent say he wants to take away Americans’ right to own guns.
  • 32 percent say he is a Muslim.
  • 29 percent think he wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world government.
  • 29 percent think he has done many things that are unconstitutional.
  • 27 percent say he resents America’s heritage.
  • 27 percent say he does what Wall Street and the bankers tell him to do.
  • 25 percent say he was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president.
  • 25 percent say he is a domestic enemy that the U.S. Constitutions speaks of.
  • 23 percent say he is a racist.
  • 23 percent say he is anti-American.
  • 23 percent say he wants to use an economic collapse or terrorist attack as an excuse to take dictatorial powers.
  • 20 percent say he is doing many of the things that Hitler did.

When broken out by political party, results showed some stark differences. For instance, the majority of Republicans believed the president is a Muslim and a socialist, while around 40 percent believe he is a racist, someone who resents American heritage and “wants terrorists to win.”

Hitler?  Really?  Where is this sentiment coming from? Why do people hold these false, extreme beliefs? Because in politically correct, “post-racial”  America you can’t just say, “I don’t like the President because he’s a nigger and I don’t like/trust/serve/deal with niggers!”.  Say it.  Start saying it pundits!   Start saying Fox News!  Start saying it Tea Party members!  Join those who are very open with their racist views and don’t hide behind politics.  Be honest and stop this ridiculous posturing. You  go around calling the President and Congress liars and crooks but you yourself hide your real intentions. Trust me, your fellow Americans would prefer to know who they are REALLY dealing with and hearing from.

I would much rather know that you’re a bigot than have you smile in my face or be dishonest about it.  Go ahead, call a spade a spade.

Health Care Bill Protesters Call Rep Lewis the N-word and Spit on Rep. Cleaver

I went down to the National Mall on Saturday and witnessed the Health Care Bill Protesters first hand (posting photos soon).  They were in rare form, but thank God no one spit on me or called me “nigger”.  I was spared, apparently.   Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Barney Frank, and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver were not as lucky.

Salon.com: On Saturday, as a small group of protesters jammed the Capitol and the streets around it, the movement’s origins in white resistance to the Civil Rights Movement was impossible to ignore. Here’s only what the mainstream media is reporting, ignoring what I’m seeing on Twitter and left wing blogs:

  • Civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis was taunted by tea partiers who chanted “nigger” at least 15 times, according to the Associated Press (we are not cleaning up language and using “the N-word” here because it’s really important to understand what was said.) First reported on The Hill blog (no hotbed of left-wing fervor), the stories of Lewis being called “nigger” were confirmed by Lewis spokeswoman Brenda Jones and Democratic Rep. Andre Carson, who was walking with Lewis. “It was like going into the time machine with John Lewis,” said Carson, a former police officer. “He said it reminded him of another time.”
  • Another Congressional Black Caucus leader, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, was spat upon by protesters. The culprit was arrested, but Cleaver declined to press charges.
  • House Majority Whip James Clybourn told reporters: “I heard people saying things today that I have not heard since March 15, 1960, when I was marching to try to get off the back of the bus.”
  • There were many reports that Rep. Barney Frank was called a “faggot” by protesters, but the one I saw personally was by CNN’s Dana Bash, who seemed rattled by the tea party fury. Frank told AP: “It’s a mob mentality that doesn’t work politically.”
  • Meanwhile, a brick came through the window at Rep. Louise Slaughter’s Niagara Falls office on Saturday (the day she argued for her “Slaughter solution” to pass health care reform, though it was rejected by other Democrats on the House Rules Committee).

On Thursday MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews grilled tea party Astroturf leader Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity about supporters who taunted a man with Parkinson’s disease at a tea party gathering in Ohio last week.

That video of the guy with Parkinson’s is HORRIBLE.  These Health Care Bill Protesters and Tea Party members should be ashamed of themselves.  Everyone has a right to protest and let their voice be heard, but racial slurs, spitting on people and mocking the sick is mob mentality.  How is Fox News going to spin this?  I’m sure they will find a way.

Blog Rewind: Teacher calls student the N-Word – Real vs. Boondocks

I posted about this back in 2007 when the story came out.  I know most of you have seen the video of the teacher who thought that using “Nigga” was different than the “er” version.  I must admit…he did have one or two valid points.  It was also painful and hilarious at the same time.  That must be why the folks at the Boondocks adapted the story and made Riley the victim. Haven’t seen these two videos…here ya go.

“Can a nigga borrow a pencil?!?”  That’s the quote of the night, folks.  Black people, we really need to consider retiring the n-word.  Mixed signals.

Jules Kirby, It is never a good idea to admit that you say the n-word a lot on TV

Saw it for myself. New York Socialite Jules Kirby just said, “I use the N-word sometimes.” in the first episode of the CW’s “High Society”.  She also noted that she feels it should be ok to say.  This piece of footage aired right after another piece that showed her telling a friend that a black woman dancing in a club near them should move away.  Apparently the n-word clip ended up in one of the trailers and was posted to YouTube.  It has since been removed.  Hey, if you’re dad is a high powered lawyer I guess you got pull.  What you don’t have is any class.  I hope she doesn’t have a Twitter feed or blog cause I’m sure it’s been flooded.  Sad.  Doesn’t she know that comments like that are only for closed doors?  I mean, come on.  Take your blatant racism underground, right?

Huffington Post – “In one of the trailers, the first seen below, Kirby is seen saying, “I use the N-word sometimes.” That line is not taken out of context. In the first episode of the show she ALSO says she isn’t friends with many black, Jewish or gay people.

According to Monday’s Page Six, Kirby skipped last week’s launch party for the show.

“She’s particularly annoyed that she admits in the trailer to occasionally using the ‘N’ word, ” our source says. Kirby didn’t respond to a request for comment.”

Update: Why did CW pull the trailer?

“Because GLAAD complained. Because in it, sad NYC nightlife social climber Jules Kirby (more on her sad life here) admitted to using the “N-word” (not in the above clip), and Social Life editor Devorah Rose calls a party-goer a “tranny” (as seen in the above clip) after being told she “looks like a man” during this party.

With GLAAD (and the blogs!) on its back, The CW promised to yank the trailer; it’s already gone from YouTube, but taking it out of television circulation could take longer. (The show premires March 10.) Kirby, meanwhile, is in hiding, as people like she should be.” Source: here @ Queerty.com

Racism Reminder – Man finds racial slur on Journey’s shoe receipt

Some how I missed this story in October, so I’m posting it now (thanks to Elizabeth for bringing it to my attention).  I’m from this part of the country so, I’m not surprised.

On Oct 17, 2008, a young man went to “Journey’s” show store in Kansas City, MO (some accounts of this story say it happened in Kansas City KS…Oak Park Mall). He bought a pair of shoes and then saw an identical pair at a different store for less.? As such, he bought the identical shoes from the cheaper store and took back the original more pricey pair to Journey’s. Later on that night, as he was reviewing the receipt, he noticed that the reason for the return was “Dumb N*gger”. When he took the receipt back to the store, they didn’t even apologize but did admit that the “reason” was in the system. Click the video below to see local news coverage.

This store is a retail chain for whom you may be a regular customer.  There is power in the almighty dollar. Just something to consider. Please pass it along…

I would prefer that they just call Obama the N-word and get it over with

I’m tired of the accusations that Barack Obama is not a citizen of the United States that are being passed around by email.  Obama is an American Citizen. Duh!?!?!  What major political party is going to take a chance like that on a non-citizen?  Both Obama’s and McCain’s citizenship has been called into question…and they are both citizens.

McCain qualifies, too, although the circumstances of his birth — on a U.S. naval base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936 — were unusual enough to merit a review. – AP

Oh, but people have gone as far as to sue in court wanting Obama to produce “proof” and the birth certificate that has been presented…they are calling it fake.  If he was white would this be happening?  When has this ever happened in the last 20 years, 30 years with regard to a presidential candidate?  Um…as a citizen there are a lot of things that I would love to just be able to sue and have President Bush give me “proof” of.  It that going to happen.  NO.  You can’t just sue elected officials for their personal records.  OH…I guess you can if the elected official is black.

Candidates meet “natural born” tests despite rumors – AP Wire – I have seen a number of right wing blogs noting just the opposite.  I have even see allegations that are said to have been made by Barack’s grandmother in Kenya regarding Obama being birthed in Kenya.  OK, you know it’s serious when they put your grandmother’s name in it.

All of this drama has one central cause.  Some people in America are so racist that they will come up with ANYTHING they can think of to help to ensure that a black man will never be President.

Don’t call him a terrorist. Dont’ imply that he is a muslim or of arab decent (if I was a muslim I would be having post-9/11 flashbacks right now).  Obama is a Christian.  How can you bring up his Christian pastor over and over again and then say he’s a Muslim.  Contradiction!!!  It’s like “muslim” is a dirty word or a horrible thing to be for some people during this election cycle.  I guess the Right doesn’t care about American Muslims and Arab Americans that vote.

Just go ahead and pull out the “big gun” (so to speak).  The N-word. Don’t beat around the bush.  Just go there.  That’s what many of you are doing behind closed doors anyway.  You know who you are!  You would never, ever vote for a black man for president of the United States.  You know what you really feel and what you would really say if you weren’t trying to be politically correct. I can at least accept that people who are openly racist have been doing so with abandon.  They don’t hide behind masks (hoods maybe) of faux-righteousness.  See, like most black people, I want to know where you stand if you’re racist.  It just clears the air and makes things simple and plain.  Hate is hate…you can’t whitewash it with politics.

All I’m saying is forget citizenship, Ayers, Rev. Wright…etc.  Just call him a Nigger like you really want to.  Let’s all be open and honest with it.

Whoopi says the N-word on the view, Hasselbeck cries

Jesse just had to say the n-word, didn’t he, dag. Anyway…In many ways, they are both right. It’s funny to me how black and white America sometimes assume they know the other side so very well.

Whoopi said…”No, no, I, I want you to. But what I need you to understand is the frustration that goes along when you say we live in the same world. It isn’t balanced. And we would like it to be. But you have to understand, you have to listen to the fact that we’re telling you, there are issues, there are huge problems that still affect us. And you’ve got to know this if you want to know us.”

Around that time Elisabeth started to cry and asked “how are we supposed to then move forward if we keep using terms that bring back that pain?” Um Liz…bring back the pain??? The pain is here all the time. From hair care products, to shows on NBC with no black charaters written as if we don’t exist except as background characters (yes…I know they’ve gotten a bit better), to “No Child Left Behind” programs in urban areas graduating black children without an education. It’s called institutional racism. In my opinion, as a white women, you can’t fully and totally possibly understand a black woman’s point of view on the subject, and no one really expects you to. Sigh…Click here for the whole transcript. In the end, Elizabeth missed the last point Whoopi was making that she needed to acknowledge what Whoopi was saying as her true and honest feelings instead of trying to get her to understand how wrong she feels the n-word is. She just kept talking…you have to listen to learn.

The problem in my eyes…the converstation is not one that can be entered in lightly. It has to be framed in understanding and mutual respect for points of view that will vastly differ. That is difficult…especially on network TV.

Note: Barbara Walters used the opportunity to promote Obama’s candidacy opining “Barack Obama and others…are trying to move forward.” Come on Barb…that’s all you have to say?!?! LOL

Friday Question: Will the N-word ever go away?

Hello Readers!!! We’ve seen some healthy debate around the posting on NAS’s new song “Be a Nigger too”. The N-word tends to have that effect when opinionated people are around, and I love the dialog. So, this week’s question is “Will the N-word ever go away?”. [The question is late…my bad] I know quite a few African Americans who absolutely hate the word and think it should never ever be used regardless of the circumstances. I know quite a few African Americans who think the word has been somewhat “reclaimed” by the community and is not always used in it’s historical sense. Many embrace it, and many abhor it.

The question is, whether embraced or banned in some fashion, will it ever disappear from use. Do you think it will become illegal, passe, or just archaic?

“Wouldn’t you like to be a Nigger too?”

“I’m a nigger, he’s a nigger, she’s a nigger, we some niggers,
wouldn’t you like to be a nigger too?
They like to strangle niggers, blaming niggers, shooting niggers, hanging niggers,
still you wanna be a nigger too?”

NAS had my attention before, when he was going to name his new CD “Nigger”. That has been scrapped and the CD will be untitled from what I hear, but I’m loving his new CD cover. What I’m REALLY REALLY REALLY loving today is his new song “Be a Nigger too” and the video for it. You can check it out below. I’m so excited about this song. The song in the video is longer than the CD version, but I think they should change that. I know some of you won’t be able to get past the n-word. That’s ok. I know it’s painful. However, as a child of black revolutionaries…I love this s**t. I think it’s conscious and I haven’t heard much consciousness in hip hop music lately. In the video he says,

“They say we N-I Double G E-R, We Are, Much More, But still we choose to ignore the obvious/ We are the Slave And the Master. What you lookin for? You the question and the answer.”

Yes we really are.

Racism goes beyond lynching [racial slur here]

An article from South African writer Fikile-Ntsikelelo Moya aka the F-Word aka one of my new heroes.

From Mail and GuardianRacism goes beyond lynching niggers
One Sunday afternoon the news editor at my previous paper sent me to cover a dog show at Gilloolies Farm, east of Johannesburg. When I got there the woman behind the ticket counter ignored me and routinely focused on people who came after me.

When she did pay attention to me she asked me: “What are you here to deliver?” In her mind the idea of a black guy enjoying the sight of dogs jumping through hoops was a bridge too far.

The woman and the people she paid attention to were white. I was (and still am) black. I called her action racist and people who commit racist actions, racists.

I might have been wrong. Perhaps the lady at the dog show is a nice woman who has never said an unkind word about people of other hues.

But that is where part of the problem lies.

Somehow we have developed the idea that unless you lynch niggers in a plantation or bang the heads of uppity black detainees against the prison walls until they die you are not really a racist.

Hold on, not even beating up darkies qualifies as racism. As one Pumas rugby team supporter, JR Nagel, told The Times when asked his opinion about the team fielding Gert van Schalkwyk (not to be confused with the Kaizer Chiefs midfielder of the same name) who is on appeal after he and his friends were convicted of beating a black man to death. “We all, even myself … my chommies [friends] and I have beaten up a couple of kaffirs. You are young, that’s what you do. In those days your dad told you that’s kwaai [cool].

“The only reason this is an issue is because it’s a kaffir who died and it was a white laaitie [boy] who hit him,” Nagel said.

Granted, the last statement reflects the unique idiocy of the speaker rather than a general trend of thought. Still, the unfortunate reality is that there is simply too little respect by our white compatriots for black people’s sensitivities to colonialism and racism. Or they are just too shy to show it.
