Okay, this is mean.

But sometimes I just can't help it.

I was watching this video on :

And I just couldn't stop thinking about how haggy she looks; how bizarre her underbite is (and this bitch looks like she's got two tins of tobacco perpetually stuffed in her bottom lip in the front). But then it dawned on me who MEchelle Obama looks like to me:

MICHELLE OBAMA = AUGHRA! For a better comparison and feel free to take it for your own nefarious purposes:

Been a LONG time comin'.

After February I got really mad at everything and didn't want to keep posting for fear of showin' y'all the dark(er), uglier side of me. But after Senator Clinton (and then Bill) got smeared for being racists, I had had enough and decided to just watch what happened.

It wasn't easy to watch and keep quiet about.

It wasn't easy to watch my own people declare that Bill and Hillary Clinton--who have done so much more for Black Americans and Africans everywhere than Buck-buck-buck-Too-Chicken-to-Face-a-Debate/Lemme Show U How You Can DIE in a Slum from the Cold AND the Heat Obama--RACIST...and keep quiet about it.

It wasn't easy to watch my 90% of my black brothaZ [sic] and sistaZ [sic] follow this guy in every damn state (except for Massachusetts--oop, sorry, MassaTOOsetts, according to the Messiah) towards the destruction of the Democratic Party as we know it...and keep quiet about it.

It wasn't easy to see and read about the Super Dumbs...uh, Super Deez...putting untold and unprecedented amount of pressure on Senator Clinton to sit down, shut up and drop out so that their prize horse could "lock up the nomination" (which, the sad reality is, he has not done, since the Super Deez don't effin' VOTE until endorsement is just that--an endorsement)...and keep quiet about it.

It wasn't easy to watch that happen whilst Senator Clinton won just about every state we knew she was going to win, PLUS some (South Dakota, anyone?)...and keep quiet about it.

And god damn this AMERICA, but it just wasn't easy to turn on every channel and open every newspaper to see some ol' boolshit like Obama's fat-headed arrogance (with the President's Seal ripoff), racist pandering (on Father's Day, talkin' about how black men act like boys and abandon their families) and continued black (and blind) misogyny (with his meeting the Congressional Black Caucus members) and denial of his Muslim past (going so far as to allow his image goons to prevent Muslim women from being seated where anyone could see them behind Obama)...and keep quiet about it.

But now this weekend, I don't have to keep quiet. I can finally start sayin'

I FUCKIN' TOLD YOU SO, muthafuckas!

Either Black America wakes up and stops this insanity or we all head to our god damn end.

Friday, February 22, 2008

I've been called a House Negro (by some of my family, many of my friends) for supporting Senator Clinton. But when I'm called House Negro by an Obama supporter, I tell them that at least I'm not voting for the biggest House Negro ever.

Obama is the biggest House Negro ever. Prove to me otherwise and I got a piece of land next to the Obama's I'd like to sell you.

Obama is the Dem's Ron Paul of 2008.

Some modern blacks have all bought into the sociological definition of racism as a system of group privilege; a process whereby one group has oppressed all those not in that group. Therefore, these blacks contend, black people can't be racist.

I call shenanigans. Black people, hispanic people, asian people, white people--they can all be racist.

Which is why I find it so troubling that because of our politically correct atmosphere in the press and politics that we're overlooking the gaffes and ties to racism and homophobia of Barack Obama; that the MSM is ignoring the blatant dirty trickery, negative ad campaigning and race cards that Obama has magically seemed to convince the MSM that he has not been using (and instead is successfully convincing voters
, however erroneously, that the Clinton Machine is using).

Let me take a look at the course of this insidious underhanded campaigning, starting with the "uproar in South Carolina" (before the voting).

Donnie McClurkin and the "Embrace the Change" Tour

Obama stirred the shit up with us gays when his campaign announced the "40 Days of Faith and Family" tour through South Carolina would be having a three-day gospel tour that included ex-gay gospel singer Donnie McClurkin who believes that you can be "delivered from homosexuality by God". Once the shit hit the fan with the GLBT community, Obama released a statement where he said he disagreed with McClurkin's views on homosexuality:

Statement on Rev. McClurkin

"I have clearly stated my belief that gays and lesbians are our brothers and sisters and should be provided the respect, dignity, and rights of all other citizens. I have consistently spoken directly to African-American religious leaders about the need to overcome the homophobia that persists in some parts of our community so that we can confront issues like HIV/AIDS and broaden the reach of equal rights in this country.

I strongly believe that African Americans and the LGBT community must stand together in the fight for equal rights. And so I strongly disagree with Reverend McClurkin's views and will continue to fight for these rights as President of the United States to ensure that America is a country that spreads tolerance instead of division."

~ Barack Obama

You can see Obama parrot the same idea here in his MTV forum.

However, what these MSM--and even some gay media--missed in the whole controversy was that McClurkin wasn't the only anti-gay musical act in the gospel tour. Hezekiah Walker and Mary Mary have also toed the homophobic black church line (the best article written about it is within, and I came across it with much, much searching of blogs everywhere). Yet, not a peep from the MSM about them. Not a peep about how this was a collective effort to appeal to the churchgoing GLBT-hating blacks of South Carolina. It's been chalked up as "poor advance work"/oversight by the Obama campaign.

I, for one, believe that they knew exactly what they were doing. Obama and his campaign fed into the hatred of GLBTs by the churchgoing GLBT-hating blacks and it worked, just as the same type of appeal to racial demographics worked in the other southern states (see my first post). Any attempt to look at it from a distanced perspective is bad: If Obama really doesn't believe and disagrees with the anti-gay sentiment of these acts, then he was using them to get the vote of the anti-gay voters. If Obama actually does agree with the anti-gay sentiment of these acts, then he's doing a fantastic job of hiding that from his stalwart Obamaphiles (and the general public). If he really believes that he can change the mind of a 60-something-year-old Southern homophobic church goer, then I'd like to know his secret (or introduce him to my mother). In any case, by not publically denouncing all of the acts, he essentially gave them a pass.

His followers--so-called "progressives"--believe him to be their candidate. But to me, whether you're pandering to hate or just hating in secret, you're as far from progressive as you can get.

I Don't Hate White People, I Just Write About Hating White People

I sincerely doubt that any of those nouveau Obamaphiles--Obama supporters who jumped on the wagon in the fall of 2007--has actually read Dreams from my Father. Some blacks have read it, but not all; most black Obamaphiliacs are just glad to have a handsome, articulate man who might have a shot at getting into the White House on the Democratic ticket; and some just know that he made a good speech at the Democratic National Convention four years ago.

Those blacks who have read Dreams can identify with some of it (particularly the half n' halves, like me). They "get" the anger and resentment at having been born to one white parent and one black parent and only "showing" for one of them. Obama is black. Had he come out of his mother's womb the same color as she, he would've been classified as white and whoo-boy, he could've lived high and large just like Coleman Silk in The Human Stain. That is the problem; the resentment he has towards he race condemning him to a life built upon stereotypes and having to overcome them. Forcing Obama, in effect, to identify more with his African heritage than with a "safer" white heritage. White males in American society are much more privileged than a black male, duh.

But such struggle does not negate the fact that resentment does not equal hatred. Obama seethes hatred for his white heritage in Dreams. I'm not going to quote what has been so often quoted online. What I am going to do is tell you to read Dreams from my Father yourself and make up your own mind. Just know that you heard it from this anonymous black man online that he too believes the text to be racist/internalized racism, because as much as I struggled with the same issues, I never was of the same mind Barack Obama is about his white mother (though my mother is black/my father is white). Which leads me to my next point...

I Don't Agree with Wright's People, I Just Write About Disagreeing with Wright's People

Yeah, that whole damn Trinity thing again. I can't help it, it bothers me, even though Wright gave his last sermon before stepping down last week. His stepping down doesn't change the values system. It doesn't change the fact that instead of emphasizing an encompassing Christian value system, the church chose to self-segregate with words specific to one race.

Obama's complacency with the gay-hating churchgoers can be used to gauge his complacency with these issues, too. He wrote that he disagreed with McClurkin, and he wrote that he disagreed with Wright's Lifetime Achievement Award to Farrakhan, yet he stopped short of severing ties with either the "40 Days" tour or Wright/the chruch. He and his campaign has accused the Clinton campaign of using the race card, but it is he who has been wearing out his race card throughout, keeping that race-baiting numbskull Jesse Jackson Jr. on board as his campaign co-chair. Let's take a look at our fine Baby Mr. Hymietown's work so far:

-- After Iowa, he made this comment: "The natural reminder here is O.J.--how does an African-American candidate attack a white woman?"

-- After New Hampshire:

-- Before South Carolina, he helped spread the lie about Bill Clinton's "fairy tale" comment.

Former President Bill Clinton called into Al Sharpton’s nationally syndicated talk radio show to say that his “fairy tale” comment on Monday about Senator Barack Obama’s positioning on the war was being misconstrued and that he was talking only about the war, not Mr. Obama’s overarching message or his drive to be the first black president.

Of course, the damage by the Obamaphiliac MSM had already been done. See one of my previous posts for a video of the in-context "fairytale" comment of Bill's.

But again, instead of supporting a clean campaign based on facts, Obama and his campaign latched onto something that could be perceived as negative, twisted and ran with it. It's not wonder why Bill's so damn mad. But I'm digressing a bit, so let me get back on track, back to little baby Jesse.

-- Now, after the Potomac Primaries and upon the rhetoric that Obama and his campaign are dishing about the Super Delegates, he is pressuring black Super Delegates who've pledged to Hillary to rethink their votes based on race.

Say whaaaat?

Yes, here's the quote:
In an interview, Cleaver offered a glimpse of private conversations.

He said Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois had recently asked him "if it comes down to the last day and you're the only superdelegate? ... Do you want to go down in history as the one to prevent a black from winning the White House?"

"I told him I'd think about it," Cleaver concluded.

Jackson, an Obama supporter, confirmed the conversation, and said the dilemma may pose a career risk for some black politicians. "Many of these guys have offered their support to Mrs. Clinton, but Obama has won their districts. So you wake up without the carpet under your feet. You might find some young primary challenger placing you in a difficult position" in the future, he added.

(If I'd been Mr. Cleaver, I would've kindly've told the brotha to get his face out of my office and never, ever come back. But then I don't respond kindly to threats.)

Where do we hear Obama on this? Nowhere. Again, just as complacent as he's always been when there is negativity or in this case, threats, his campaign is either silent or defensive. With all of his whining, it's as if Obama has never known what Super Delegates are, with all of his "will of the people" talk. He's afraid that the Super Delegates will actually do their jobs and vote to keep the party safe from extremists and "fads" that don't have a chance of winning in the General Election (like him). Obama's campaign point to large victories in the red states and the caucus states over Clinton, yet they refuse to see the difference between winning the primary "popular vote" and winning the election popular vote. There are states that will never go blue. There are peoples' voices who were not heard (in the caucus states). Trying to use the talk, talk talk to convince everyone that Super Delegates' votes should be bullied into representing the "voice of the people" seems to've worked on some of the lesser-brained people, but those smarter ones aren't buying it. Even the young Super Delegates aren't eating up the Obamaphilia as some of their non-"super" counterparts are.

S'Okay to Steal From a Brotha--We Friends!

Forgive my use of AAVE lite, but I couldn't resist. The news all over today was Obama's plagiarizing of his friend Deval Patrick's "Just Words?" gimmick in his speech in Wisconsin.

Patrick's come out to say that they're friends and they share stuff. Well how nice. However, when a candidate's entire campaign is built up upon the fact that he gives "great, inspiring" speeches and that he's the candidate to bring something new and fresh into Washington, the assumption is that those speeches and the gimmicks contained within are also new and fresh--not just recycled "It worked for me, it can work for you!" crap. Another "oversight" by the Obama campaign, like the "Embrace the Change" tour? No, this time it--like everything else that reeks of contention in his campaign (McClurkin, Wright, Rezko, Exelon/the lie to Iowa voters about legislation, the lack of Washington experience): It's all no big deal.

Maybe that's the real reason why Obama's too chicken to face Clinton in an other 1-on-1 debate*: All of those things that are "no big deal" are going to come at him head-first, and he won't have his Axelrod and Jackson Jr. on the spot to be able to twist them into the anti-Clinton propaganda that they've so successfully been able to make.

*And by the way, they haven't had 18 debates, they've had ONE 1-on-1 debate, and that is what the Clinton campaign is on about. The 1-on-1 debates are where we get to see them both up close on the issues.

Now, Imagine for a Moment That Obama Were White...

...given all of the above. You have this new candidate, an online phenomenon, who was able to raise exorbitant amounts of money over the internet for his campaign, a campaign that speaks to the progressive vote; the anti-Washington-politics-as-usual candidate who "tells it like it is". The candidate who is a media darling, his campaign a sort of "movement" amongst young people and who is described as a "breath of fresh air" by older voters and defended to its very fibers by the most rabid fans. But suddenly, he seems to have ties to racists. Suddenly, people have actually started to read his old racist writings, and begin to question their judgment. What do you end up with?

Ron Paul.

Some people figured out that Ron Paul + past racist writings + racist friends + racists in America = unredeemable = unelectable. But for some reason, and I suspect that reason is because Obama is black, no one has figured out that Barack Obama + past racist writings + racist friends + racists in America = unredeemable = unelectable. Believe me, I've felt that tension when white people who don't know me are carefully guarding their words around me when they don't want to offend, but I tell them straight up: Everyone has the propensity to be a little bit (or a lot) racist. As a black man, my head's not going to suddenly implode if you use "black" instead of "African American", or if you use "nigger" in an academic context instead of "the n-word". I'm just not going to outright lie to you and tell you that there aren't any black racists and that people like Obama can't be racist. To me, any denigration of a race that is not your own is racism, whether or not there is a power hierarchy. Ron Paul was not not held accountable for his history. Why is Obama not being held accountable for his past and current history?

I leave today with a couple of happy links: Men for Hillary and the Gay vote went to Clinton. I'm glad that some of the gays are thinkin' straight...for once.

I am ASHAMED of my black brothers. ASHAMED.

It is boolshit like this that jacks up the stereotype that we're all just stupid:

Say what, brotherman? "I don't think a woman should be the head of no country because it's too much power for a woman. It's not about race."?! No, it's not about race, it's about abhorrent and disgusting sexism, the same kind of sexism that paints us black men in the eyes of every Jerry Springer fan as violent baby daddies who beat on and leave their women. And this guy disgusts me too, but for lesser reasons: "And to see a black man running for president, I never thought I'd live long enough to see it." Well bro, apparently Obama's messaianic message of lights shinin' down on us and telling us to vote for Barack Obama made you forget all about Jesse Jackson.

I'll mix it up and throw the white girl under the bus too, just as she has Senator Clinton:

"People have less trouble being outwardly sexist than they do outwardly racist, so I'm going to reinforce the outward sexism and not even get off my lazy ass to do anything about it!"

These screencaps come from this article on the BBC News. Read the comments; most foreigners are definitely split, but leaning more towards someone with experience; they question (rightfully so) Obama's green. The Americans leaving comments are just as split as they are here back at home, with the fanatical Obama people singing his praises/dissing Clinton.

And does anyone else see the total irony of this:

At the Maryland church, parishioner Michael Gaddy said Clinton made a good speech, but nevertheless he supports Obama.

"It's not a dilemma for me," Gaddy said. "I think Obama's the better man for the job. If for some reason he doesn't get the nomination, I think we'd all be behind Hillary."

If you'd be behind Hillary then, then why not now?

Because he black, that's why.

I picked up the Newsweek issue with McCain on the cover and inside is a good article about how American voters vote called When It's Head Versus Heart, the Heart Wins:

Which candidate a voter identifies with is one of the most important gut-level heuristics, since it is tantamount to deciding that someone is enough like you to "understand the concerns of people like you," as pollsters put it. "If you feel a candidate is like you racially or by gender, you're more likely to believe that that candidate will support what you support," says Norris. But with a white woman and a black man vying for the Democratic nomination, where does that leave black women? Whom they most identify with depends on which aspect of their own identity dominates their self-image. For instance, in a study of whether black women believed O. J. Simpson guilty or not of the 1994 murder of his ex-wife and her friend, those whose identity as a woman trumped their sense of themselves as black were significantly more likely to believe Simpson guilty. But black women whose self-image was dominated by their race tended to believe him innocent.

Which aspect of identity takes precedence can change week by week and even hour by hour, depending which aspect of yourself you're reminded of. That, too, explains some of the volatility in this year's primaries...Clinton's emotional moment in New Hampshire brought gender to the fore, but the injection of race into the South Carolina primary made that aspect of identity more salient, and black women voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

For real. That's the real stuff, there, the real change and "transcendence" of this voting choice: The ability to recognize the strength in your gender over the strength of your ethnicity and over Obama's ethnicity. Women who choose Clinton are helping to annihilate that last glass ceiling in the American political power structure; men who choose Clinton are helping to achieve that too, and are also evolving beyond their fears of putting a woman in charge of things. To quote from some blogs on

As an Afro-American woman, it is even harder since people just assume that you are voting for Obama...DON'T GET IT TWISTED! I'm voting for REAL experience, not just pipe dreams that may or may not happen. Yes, he does inspire younger people to vote and that's great, but do they REALLY listen to all of the messages. I truly doubt it. All flash and no substance. (AlexVA)

And man I feel bad for this kid...and again ashamed of my supposedly "educated" black brothers:

Men feel a general feeling of emascualtion; youth feel the peer pressure of their friends that want them to join the increasingly cult-like Obama "movement" and women are afraid that people will assume they support Hillary "just" because she's a woman. I can testify to this using first hand experience. On election day, on the UC Berkeley campus, I faced a lot of fire for wearing a Hillary shirt in the form of emasculating insults (being called Hillary twice during a "learn your classmate's name" ice-breaker), general resentment (being jeered and booed at) and outright harassment (two Black guys were in my face trying to force me to validate my position. In case you were wondering, I didn't back down).

What this all adds up to is a situation where people are afraid to voice their support for Hillary, even to anonymous pollsters over the phone. Even though any legitimate pollster will make every effort to keep the call professional, in the back of their heads, people always wonder what that person actually thinks of them. (Joseph Bui)

I get the same bool from the people (some family members, but mostly coworkers) around me, but I don't care. I remember what the Clintons have done for the black community. I remember Toni Morrison's comment (see my first post here) and feeling slightly offended by it until I read about Bill Clinton and who he was/what his family did for poor black folk in the South. I know that Bill is now just trying to help his wife, and his "gaffe" in South Carolina isn't what Obama's campaign or the media made it out to be.

That's the context of the "fairytale" comment. Can you really sit there with a straight face and tell me that that was racist? To quote Bill, give me a break. We loved and defended Bill once we got to know him and now we abandon him and his wife just as quickly and spitefully as Ted Kennedy did because someone with the same color skin we got might have a chance at getting elected (and qualifications don't seem to matter, so long as what he say makes you feel ALL GLORY HALLELUJAH!). It's wrong, and I'm sorry that the truth offends, but y'all a bunch of disloyal ingrates, and I would hate to be your white friend for 16+ years only to see an other brotha (or sista) come along and successfully dis me to get you to dis me. "We'll vote for Clinton if Obama doesn't get it." = "Oh, but I can still be your friend when my new black friend ain't around." Right.

Salon: Do black people feel stronger about him than, say, Colin Powell or Jesse Jackson?

DeWayne Wickham: You're measuring on different scales. African-Americans are very proud of Colin Powell, proud of his accomplishments, proud of the fact that he, unlike many other black Republicans, did not renounce affirmative action but rejoices and celebrates affirmative action and how it's benefited his life and the lives of others. But they don't see him as someone who is on the right political track. Bill Clinton is someone who is cut out of the Democratic mold. Since 1936, a majority of African-Americans have voted for Democratic presidential candidates in increasing numbers. We believe that our political fate rests most comfortably in the hands of Democrats. Yes, we also hold Clinton in higher esteem than we do Jesse Jackson, which is kind of fascinating.

Until some green kid named Obama came along, opened his mouth and watched people faint at the rainbows, unicorns and the Second Coming of Jesus spilling out of his mouth in 2004 (and again now, in 2008). It is just so boolshit!

At least there is some hope for our race:

You go, girl. You tell the man where it is.

Creationism...or not. (First Post)

I created this blog because I'm really, really tired at the biased attention towards Barack Obama. I don't like that the media has built him into their darling when he's nothing but 1) another ambitious politician and 2) what other African Americans would call a Good House Boy/sellout. Just because he's black doesn't mean we all should vote for him. Just because he had a good sermon (And that's what his speeches are--sermons. He is a lightweight version of Martin Luther King without the theology degree.) in 2004 doesn't mean we should vote for him. If the rest of my fellow black Americans knew more about Barack Obama, they wouldn't be voting for him in droves like they are, particularly in the south:

Georgia Primary Exit Polling

Alabama Primary Exit Polling

Today's Louisiana Primary Exit Polling

The people who say that this isn't about race or about blacks voting for blacks are seriously deluding themselves (particularly in the Southern states). We do vote for our own! Stop denying it! And we voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 & 1996 because he was "black" and we LOVED him. To us, at least, he was as black as you could get without actually being black; Toni Morrison even said so. But of course, now she supports half-white/half-Kenyan Obama. Let me tell you, I'm not a big fan of the preacher in the following video; not many people I know are either. But what he says about us, Morrison, Obama and the Clintons? Is 100% correct.

When Bill Clinton was running for President, he got the black vote. Blacks defended him up and down and to the moon. Now? They will pick at anything to bring him and his wife down, as evidenced in South Carolina, because a black man who isn't Jesse Jackson is running for President. A black man who's been canonized by our people just as (Bill) Clinton was in 1992. Suddenly what Bill and Hillary Clinton have done for poor blacks and black America doesn't matter anymore, because we have a clean-cut black man that defies the common stereotype of "American black man" running for president. A junior Senator whose teeth have barely been cut; a junior Senator who was stupid enough to use progressive webbers to raise campaign money for the only ex-Ku Klux Klan member in Congress (an interstingly enough, all articles from "legitimate" papers, including the Chicago Sun-Times and the Charleston Gazette, have mysteriously disappeared from print online). Yes, that's right, Obama is an IDIOT who raise re-election campaign money through for his fossilized, ex-Kleagle from the KKK asshat:

Seriously, Obama fans, you can't see anything wrong with this? Would a Jewish Congressman be able to get away with raising re-election funds for an ex-Nazi SS officer as easily?

And you can't see anything wrong with Rezko? He left his own people out in the literal cold. He touts "legislation" against nuclear co. Exelon as the "only nuclear legislation I've passed", but he let the bill die (a bill that came to be after tritium was leaked into the drinking water sources in Braidwood, Illinois, where the popluation is more than 90% white) after getting huge campaign contributions from Exelon. But of course, when it comes to helping those of color like us, Obama is right there fighting tooth and nail.

It doesn't surprise me that he gets away with holding black nationalist values and that white America isn't familiar with the way that works. People, particularly the media, were so quick to write off his ties to Trinity and Jeremiah Wright, but all of the "bad" things you hear about Wright are true. That's not to say that black nationalism is bad. We blacks take pride in our race. But some of us want to take pride and use victimization and the guilt of others in order to get ahead. I don't agree with that, and I certainly didn't agree with Wright giving the Trumpet's Lifetime Achievement Award to Louis Farrakhan. Obama didn't either, but his "spiritual mentor" is still, nonetheless, Jeremiah Wright, and his church is still the same church that lists a black values system. That's all good (the system, that is), but I'm not going to stand by and pretend that a list/system like that isn't based on racism. The real point is that no one in their right mind would take a second look at Ron Paul (or any white guy, for that matter) if he belonged to a church that espoused a white values system (though something funny about this is that all of the KKK idiots over at are huge Ron Paul supporters, probably because of his racist writings). It's just not PC.

I dunno people. Y'all got to take a step back and check yourselves. Barack Obama isn't going to help you. But he is one fine damned talker.
