let’s call it what it is

‘Obama’ sneaks up on unsuspecting babies and tries to indoctrinate them with his brand of Hitlerism

After entering seriously ugly Firedogfake/Glenn GreenBeck cyberspace territory today to read up on a bunch of stuff, including Firedogfake’s threats to Eclectablog (see here), what struck me most was the seething hatred of Barack Obama the man, never mind Barack Obama the President.

I sometimes enter Teabagger territory just to entertain myself with their spectacular stupidity, but honestly, even there you’d struggle to find the same levels of hatred that you get from Firedogfake, Glenn GreenBeck and the like.

We are talking foaming-at-the-mouth hatred here.

Here’s an example.

On May 18 of this year this was posted at Jane Hamsher’s Firedogfake:

It’s now July 18th and that post – about the need for “Afro-Americans” to enter an “education program” – is still on FDL.

Hamsher owns FDL, so she owns this post – so spare us all the excuse that it was only written by one of FDL’s diarists. If Hamsher found an entry on the site that was critical of her, she’d have it deleted in a blink of an eye.

But a post about the need for “Afro-Americans” to enter an “education program” is, evidently, perfectly fine.

Truly, this is as ugly as it can get.

Let’s cut the crap and call it for what it is: Hamsher and her FDL sheeple are race-baiting scum.

If they weren’t, an FDL post calling for “Afro-Americans” to be entered in an “education program” would have been deleted.

But it’s still there.

***
The more anonymous threats I get from Hamsherbots, the more I’ll post about her – and that’s a promise 😉

Unlike Hamsher, I don’t – and never, ever will – ask for or accept donations.

If anyone has a few dollars to spare, I will ask them to contribute to Obama/Biden 2012.

Some of us aren’t in it for the money or attention – truly, we’re just not that desperate.

    Chip, I meant to tell you there’s this letter circulating I received a few days ago…I was pissed and fired back

    POLITICS AS USUAL
    The Last Black President
    Contributing Correspondent: Maze Jackson
    Ok, I am about to make a statement here that may not be popular, but it’s the truth. If the unemployment rate stays above 8.5% by the election, there is a very real possibility that Barack Obama may not be re-elected. Yesterday, I watched the President’s press conference in which he discussed the debt ceiling, and the Republicans’ unwillingness to work out a compromise.
    Honestly, I did not listen, the sound faded away as I actually LOOKED at President Obama. I could not get over the way he looked, physically. Solemn, graying, and very deliberate, gone was the electric smile and bubbling energy, replaced by a man who is seemingly beginning to realize that the opposition is willing to drive the country into the ground to insure the defeat of the first Black President, even at their own peril.
    I have not been the most ardent Barack Obama supporter. I have always been wary of his commitment to Black people; however, I never share this with outsiders who would only seek to use them as validation of their viewpoints. “Even you, a Black man does not think he is doing a good job!” It would be the same way the Republicans will use Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley’s comments to tank Obama with Blacks, or at least temper our enthusiasm for him in the 2012 election.
    Combine that with another seemingly legitimate Black candidate, Herman Cain, that will give frustrated Black voters (with whom the unemployment rate is at 16.2%), a place to deposit their votes, and this thing is looking more challenging by the day. Tank the economy, and they can get a do over with the Recession.
    Obama’s election demonstrated that in dire times, Americans are willing to give anything a try, hence the first Black President. Now the Tea Party is willing to recreate the Recession in an all out attempt to defeat him. A kamikaze mission, and frankly with the stakes involved, I think it has moved beyond politics to blatant racism. They are going to get that n_ _ _a out of there, to quote Malcolm X, “By Any Means Necessary.”
    Make no mistake about it; I have my own personal grievances against OUR President. I really think he could have done more for Blacks, but I know “he’s trying not to be the angry Black man,” as Jay – Z was recently quoted in Rolling Stone. I think if he would have been the angry Black man, capable of properly articulating his thoughts, they would not be trying to punk him right now, publicly and humiliatingly, like Jimmy Carter, with his head on a stake.
    But he’s still family, and when someone attacks your family, no matter what the circumstances, you defend home. We can take Obama to the woodshed for ignoring us these past three years AFTER we get him re-elected. But he better get it right or he’ll be the LAST BLACK PRESIDENT.

      I disagree with this part of what the person wrote:

      “I think if he would have been the angry Black man, capable of properly articulating his thoughts, they would not be trying to punk him right now, publicly and humiliatingly, like Jimmy Carter, with his head on a stake.”

      IMO, this would have been the WRONG strategy to pursue because it would have confirmed the stereotype of “the angry black man” and would have damaged any chances PBO would have had to accomplish anything at all. I also don’t know how aware this person is, but PBO has never had any problem articulating his goals for the country. The angry black president would have provided perpetual fodder for the right to attack PBO without ceasing. I’m black, and I think PBO has played it just right. He has given the right no ammo to put “the angry black man” stereotype into play, and his ability to demonstrate his maturity in the face of the republicans’ immaturity makes him seem reasonable, which has the ability to transcend race and politics more easily than being seen as angry. PBO isn’t weak. In fact, he’s the opposite. It takes a person of strong character to find smart ways to fight one’s opponents without resorting to emotional outrage. My money is on PBO because I have rightly figured out that the chances for a better nation for all of us reside with him. For me, voting for Herman Cain is NOT an option, and Cain is not a viable alternative to PBO. I’d be a straight fool to vote for anyone who is willing to violate the tenets of the Constitution for personal gain and is also a corporate w*ore and is not trying to hide it.

      • July 17, 2011 at 11:58 pm

        Agreeing with you, Majii. My take would also be that ‘the angry black man’ would have been the WRONG strategy for the President to pursue because it is really not PBHO, and it is in no way as effective a strategy as its proponents seem to believe. PART of the President’s success IMO is due to his obvious sincerity, and though I don’t doubt there’s been times he’s been ‘angry’ with the clowns he has to deal with on both sides, I don’t see him delivering ‘the angry black man’ sincerely. Maze Jackson needs to wake up to the fact that if (s)he’s an American the President has not ignored her/him. He has been ‘fighting’ for ALL Americans, black, brown, yellow, or white in a way that will ensure more lasting results, AND that’s why s/he needs to help re-elect him.

I am angry because I do not trust this kind of situation. Hell for all I know it could be Maze could be someone working for Jane the Shame or Adam the Ass?

            Do any of you know who this person is or where the letter came from? I am sorry. I cannot believe this is reality. This is another ploy to turn people away from Obama.

            I know it is just my opinion, but I am very leery about accepting this piece of dog doo doo.

          And he is NOT the Angry Black Man….

          the President is who he is…..and thank God for that…he does not need to play a role….he is intelligent….focused…and determined…to get his objectives done….

          the notion that he will be the last black president …is stupid….and desperate….

          did members of my community expect with the election of this president,,,,that all racism would come to an end,,,,,from the very beginning the President has stated his position regarding the Middle Class and the working poor…just think how much more he could have accomplished if the Repbulicans cared about the state of the Middle Class and the working poor….

          during these negotiations we has trully seen what state our government is in…..

          trying to undermine the support for President Obama…in the Black Community…is the work of those who want to dismantle the Middle Class and destroy any gains that have been won….

          this is not an accident…trying to chip away at the solid support that the president has in the Black Community is seen as key …to stopping his re-election…. not that Black folks would vote for the Republicans….but they would just not vote…..

          i am hopeful…that this will not happen…..

          • July 18, 2011 at 11:55 am

            prettyfoot, The depth of hatred towards PBO by Shamster and the evil Green could very likely be behind this. What makes me really angry is the fact that PBO inherited a financial collapse. I am sick to death of those who choose to blame him for the condition of the country.
            Of course people are hurting. PBO i s doing everything he can to help everyone. I am getting sick and tired of Obama has done nothing for me.

            Why do these people not blame the repugs. So many people do not get it. That also includes the WATBs. I am to scream. aaaaarrrrrrgggggg!

      Kasai, Who is Maze Jackson? I see here that it says “contributing correspondent – Maze Jackson.” But when I googled Maze Jackson, the only thing I came up with is a Wikipedia entry for a deceased baptist minister/preacher who is not even Black!. I have reason to believe that this “letter” is being circulated by GOP operatives. And the person who wrote it is probably not black either.

      We have to be very careful about these attempts by Republicans & PL to erode Black/minority support from our President. They will stop at NOTHING. Do you have a return address for the letter? If so, what is it?

      This guy is a stupid a$$ who sees what he wants to see. Those of us who follow the president know that the electricity and smile are still there..just ask those folks in Iowa at Ross restaurant. As far as what PBO has done for the AA community..if he would stop listening to Corney and Travesty and the rest of the PL and actually research what Obama has done then maybe he wouldnt be sending out stupid a$$ letters like this.

      Also, it’s so odd, he looked at that press conference and saw a week man…a “Jimmy Carter”…smh sometimes “family” are our worst enemies because there he is feeding into the worst stereotypes…its a shame…after all that PBO has accomplished, even for AA community as listed above, he makes it sound like he’s set the race back…a$$$…wouldn’t be surprised if he were in that group in the ’90s calling Clinton our first black president. If anyone else had done all that PBO has done, they would be getting praise not condescension.

        Exactly, the press conference was anything but weak. They are trying to get readers confused about the distinction between a stump speech when the President is all hyped up, and a press conference on a serious issue. This is nothing more than a propaganda letter from a Republican supporter, disguised as a disappointed Obama supporter.

    • July 18, 2011 at 7:56 am

      Hiya Kasai, sorry I missed all the chat last night about that unbelievable ‘letter’.

      A few lines stood out –

      “I could not get over the way he looked, physically. Solemn, graying, and very deliberate, gone was the electric smile and bubbling energy”

      What?! Maze Jackson found it shocking that the President looked solemn and wasn’t singing and dancing while talking about the possibility of the country defaulting on its debt?!

      “I have not been the most ardent Barack Obama supporter. I have always been wary of his commitment to Black people”

      Oh my God.

      “… another seemingly legitimate Black candidate, Herman Cain”

      President Obama is “seemingly legitiate”? Wow.

      “Obama’s election demonstrated that in dire times, Americans are willing to give anything a try, hence the first Black President.”

      Give anything a try, even a black man??

      “I think if he would have been the angry Black man, capable of properly articulating his thoughts, they would not be trying to punk him right”

      There are no words for this stuff.

      Couple Jackson’s assumptin that Blacks ONLY voted for Pres. Obama because he’s Black, and Hamsher’s plan to send Blacks to get reeducated, and you can see a pattern here of trying to turn the Black community against the President.

      It won’t work. First of all, Blacks DON’T vote for ANY Black. Otherwise they would have campaigned for Sharpton, and other Black presidential candidates in the past. They voted for Pres. Obama because he hasd a winning agenda, and they felt he could be elected. They will NEVER rally around a bomb thrower like Can because he is unelectable at the national level.

      Blacks KNOW what they are doing. And the suggestions that they don’t is highly insulting and in some cases racist. (Again sorry about the typos, I still can’t see what I’m posting.)

    Here’s my Response to the Black community..and whomever is sending this chain letter:

    This “Black President” has done more for blacks than any President.
    Just because he doesn’t advertise it….It doesn’t mean that he’s neglecting the Urban communities.
    In the the most hostile environmental from both sides, plus the hatred, it is amazing what he was able to achieve.

    MLK…preached about justice for ALL “Black, White, Browns” All coming together…So why is President Obama any different??

    The Last so called “Black President Clinton”….Gave us NAFTA and restructure almost got rid of Welfare Cut Medicare..

    If divide and conquer is your message…hope you have more FOR NOT ELECTING THE LAST BLACK PRESIDENT!!!!

    Here’s some accomplishments of President Obama that benefits, directly and indirectly Black Communities…just in the past 2.5years????

    Change takes time…So give the man a chance, HE’S EARNED IT
    Progress IN THE URBAN COMMUNITIES IN THE “OBAMA ERA”
    To broaden access to affordable housing, the Act provides for $1 billion in increased funding for the Community Development Block Grant; $4 billion in increased public housing capital funds; $2 billion in payments to owners of project based rental assistance properties to keep them affordable; $2 billion in Neighborhood Stabilization Funds to purchase and rehabilitate forclosed homes; and $1.5 billion in Homelessness Prevention Funds to keep people in their homes;

    To expand educational opportunity for low-income students, the Act provides for $13 billion in Title I funds to go to K-12 education in disadvantaged school systems;
    To strengthen workforce development, the Act provides $3.95 billion in increased workforce investment training dollars to keep our workers skilled and to employ young people during the summer;
    To improve energy efficiency, the Act increases the Weatherization Assistance Program by $5 billion, helping low income consumers save on their energy bills while simultaneously training more workers for a growing field;
    The Act also provides $4.7 billion to provide broadband access to underserved areas.

    Break Through Traditional Barriers
    President Obama believes that the federal government must break from the siloed approach to urban policy development – where each facet of policy operates independently from all others – and replace it with an interdisciplinary approach that appreciates the interdependent nature of issues affecting urban communities. The President’s urban agenda will promote cross-cutting plans to revitalize urban areas, considering housing, transportation, energy, labor, education, and criminal justice policy as a system rather than independent of each other.
    Take a Regional Approach
    President Obama will also take a regional approach that disregards traditional jurisdictional boundaries, setting policy that takes into account how cities, suburbs, and exurbs interact. President Obama’s urban policy agenda will use this integrated approach to enhance economic competitiveness, sustainability, and equity in our cities and metropolitan areas.
    Promote Inclusive Growth
    President Obama believes that for our nation to thrive, the federal government must make and promote coordinated and strategic investments in our regions, cities, and neighborhoods that result in inclusive economic growth. The President’s urban policies will therefore seek to avoid creating winners and losers from his urban agenda, but rather will aim to lift up and revitalize urban areas holistically and invest in community development.

    Hate Crimes Prevention Act became law, and the President hosted a reception to celebrate a victory decades in the making and steeped in blood and pain. Amongst those attending were the families of the victims for which the law was named, as well as civil rights community leaders. Below are the President’s remarks in full.
    President Obama signs an act funding settlements with minority farmers and Native Americans on Wednesday.

    The bill also funds a separate settlement involving Native American trust funds
    Qualifying farmers get $50,000 under the settlement decided in 1999
    The total cost of the measure is $4.5 billion

    Washington (CNN) — President Barack Obama on Wednesday signed a $1.15 billion measure to fund a settlement initially reached between the Agriculture Department and minority farmers more than a decade ago.
    The 1997 Pigford v. Glickman case against the U.S. Agriculture Department over claims of discrimination against black farmers was settled out of court 11 years ago. Under a federal judge’s terms dating to 1999, qualified farmers could receive $50,000 each to settle claims of racial bias.
    The legislation signed by Obama also funds a separate $3.4 billion settlement reached with the Department of Interior for mishandling Native American trust funds, along with four separate water rights lawsuits brought by Native American tribes.
    “It’s vindication and justice for black farmers,” said John Boyd, founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association, when the bill won congressional approval last month. “This is what I wanted. I wanted a final restitution from the government so the black farmers can move on.”
    Attorney General Eric Holder has called the settlements “historic” and said they “offer a new relationship between many deserving Americans and the federal agencies that play an important role in their lives,” while Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said last month the measure would help his department “move beyond this sad chapter in our history.”
    Boyd acknowledged that the $50,000 compensation for eligible farmers will far exceed the amounts of individual loans many were denied under discrimination cited in the case. However, he said, no amount of money could properly compensate for the discrimination experienced by black farmers.
    “I don’t think this is about the money. I think this is about justice,” Boyd said.
    He rejected claims by Republican critics of the settlement that the claims process was fraudulent.
    Vilsack’s statement when the bill won congressional approval also rejected the fraud claim, saying, “the bill that passed the Senate and House includes strong protections against waste, fraud, and abuse to ensure integrity of the claims process.”

Our President is doing the Best Job we have seen out of the White House in over 50 YEARS.The Black Community has always gotten the worst of the economy when things are bad. That is just a fact President Obama is fighting on all fronts for a greater America so these things do change for all not just a few. Look how long it took to get in the White House as the Main Resident . So all the changes are going to still take time. As a Vet I would fight through Hell and back again for this President because He has shown true leadership and caring for all America that I fought for. So we all should hang tough things will get better.

              Precisely…

              This is Karl Rove and his people hard at work looking to strip President Obama of that marginal percentage of black support Rove thinks will lose him re-election…

              Anyone who falls for this crap will only have themselves to blame…

              The suggestion that Romney, Huntsman, Gingrich, Cain, Bachmann, Pawlenty could do more for black people than President Obama…? Hilarious…

              Romney’s best attempt to communicate with black people was asking them “who let the dogs out”…

              Huntsman was governor of a State with a population with less than 35 black people tops and mostly recent converts to Mormonism under dubious financial and other duress…

              Gingrich a certified southern confederate racist…

              Cain, an opportunist who has done absolutely zilch for the black community besides poisoning their communities with his ‘pizza’ and laying off every last one of his below minimum wage employees to increase his profit margins…

              Bachmann and Pawlenty – same difference…

              Bottom-line is, President Obama remains every sane person’s one and only hope for re-building the very broken America George Bush and Dick Cheney left behind after 8 destructive years…

              And it will take more than 3 years and one term to fix things and get the country and everyone including black people back on track…e

              I was going to POST the same thing maggy. I have warned and sent examples to the Obama For America site about the Koch/Rove internet operation. I believe they are even starting to HACK emails of Obama supporters and the OFA website itself. I hope the Obama headquarters is aware of the extent of intrusion, invasion, and deception going on on the internet. It is obvious this email that Kasaid received was fake. How in the world can the sender state how PBO looked and acted during his presser if he/she didn’t watch it? These Teabaggers or Hamshirites are cunning and lethal. Stay focused folks!!!

      Wow! Just Wow, Kasai. I am so glad you’ve brought this to dangerous matter to our attention. No, I have not yet received this chain letter, but I know of more than a few AA’s who share this same or similar prevailing attitude–even a couple of members of my own family.

      I believe the onslaught of negative media attacks since day one (starting the very day the President was inaugurated) is starting to take its toll. The very deliberate attempt to divide and conquer within the black community is a very real threat, IMO. The PLers’ 24-7 nonstop broadcasts combined with the growing amount of radio and TV air time given to certain “designated” black spokespersons has created this atmosphere of doubt and suspicion about our President among a growing number of AA’s—which I believe could potentially impact voter turnout in 2012.

      What is so sad is the fact that this growing skepticism among AA’s is taking place in spite of the craziness being spewed by the right wing fanatics whose hatred of blacks and other minorities is on full display. In the deep South where I reside, legislation is being passed every day that’ s taking our state back more than 50 years. Yet, many of my friends and extended family members seem to be either apathetic or have defeatist attitudes when it comes to fighting back or trying to get President Obama reelected.

      Sadly, I’m not sure if the President is totally aware of what may be happening within the black populous across this country. I am not sure if his advisers really have a good ear for what is happening, or if they are adequately informing him. I just know that overall the positive messaging about the amazing accomplishments of President Obama—and how those achievements are impacting AA’s—is just not getting through to the degree that it needs to . . .

      . . . End of Rant.

    Kasai, don’t apologize for the length of your information. You are fired up, and rightly so. I always remember that speech that Barack Obama gave in New Hampshire.

    We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics who will only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks to come.

    We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible odds; when we’ve been told that we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people.

    YES WE CAN.

    The Last Black President
    Contributing Correspondent: Maze Jackson
    This is bull mess (ignoring us these past three years) for the light of me a black woman, It amaze me to hear this kind of talk from black people. The president of the USA can not, make people get an education, and what we blacks need is an education to do better. My parent grow up in Alabama and they did not ask the president to give them a jobs, they went to school and learn how to fill out an application. Yes rasicm is real but Education is free, just go and learn. get a law degree and fight injustice, not wait for the President to give you justice. Maze Jackson need to talk to those parent who do not value an education and leave the president along. BHO is for all the people. and i’m sick of people trying to put him in a box, blacks, white, gay, ect. a larger percent of blacks do not think like the tavis, west, and maze. may God bless our soul.

      So well said. I think that a lot of this kind of talk comes from being unemployed and feeling that they are not empowered in their own lives. It is NOT the fault of PBO, it is so many things, but not that.Maybe their own expectations of the election of this great black President,was to sprinkle fairy dust and make them all better again.Their anger and fault finding is misdirected.Like by 180 degrees…for the first time in so long, I have felt that this man has fought so hard, for everyone….no matter what their color or creed.While we see, daily, the RW demonizing the working and poor in this country in favor of corporations and the insanely wealthy….how do things even make sense? Fear is in play here, as well..that said, I believe that most folks do not think this way.I think they can see the way this President has tried so hard to make things better for people…while others fight tooth and nail to destroy the very fabric of this country.Maybe even starting by pitting one against the other. WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. It’s always easier to blame someone else for your bad lot in life. It takes determination and hard work to make that happen. Maybe THAT’S what’s lacking here….on their part.

I have heard Heman Cain speak once. Why on GOD’s green earth would any black man or women vote for him? Hope not just because he is black and a black alternative to Barack Obama. Cain is just as NUTS as Bachmann, Palin, Santurum, and Romney. Give me a break…………….

      Trust me, this letter wasn’t written by a frustrated Black Obama supporter. It was written by a GOP operative – the whole letter reeks of Republican talking points and stereotypical views of how a black person (Velma Hart) might feel. I don’t think any reasonable black person who supports our President truly believes that Herman Cain is a viable candidate. This letter sounds as though it was written by a Republican who extrapolated bits and pieces of “black grievance” material from West and Smiley’s rantings, and put together a thing sounding like what they imagined a frustrated black Obama supporter would write. Blacks have always have relatively high unemployment – even when the economy was booming, so the sudden stress on the unemployment rate and the willingness to blame Obama for it is largely a Republican strategy, bolstered by the likes of West and Smiley.

I am African American and I will tell you I don’t know any AA who would write a letter like that unless they are an operative of some kind. The language is so contrived and mixed with double speak. Most black people I know are very straight up and do not mix messages like that. Also most AA I know do not feel ignored by this President. We have watched from day one how he was handed a big mess! We also see how he as been taunted, smeared, hated, and obstructed. Many of us know what this looks like up close and personal and trust me, we know what it means. This is just another tactict to divide and conquer. We will NOT let this happen! Despite the few West’s and the Smiley’s (yes there are some out there) we know how hard our President has and is working on ALL of our behalves and a majority of 85% of us still have his back!

          So, IF this Maze Jackson is for real, he is going for the publicity. His company website is ‘under construction.’ He’s in a black fraternity, but likes black republicans. Oh, um, okay… Of course, he’s entitled to his opinion, but if this is all true, he strikes me as one of those folks who just likes to be contrary, just to be different. And not as smart as he thinks he is. Whatever.

          I still remember the quote from the father of US Rep J.C.Watts (R-OK). Pops, not understanding his son’s politics, said. “A black man voting for a Republican is like the chicken voting for Col. Sanders”

    The thing that angers me the most is the presumption that all black people are homogeneous in their thinking, beliefs and attitudes. As an African-American and a human being, that insults me to the core of my person. How dare they think they can hoodwink all of us into thinking that President Obama hasn’t done any good for the black community. Yes, I’m sure it would be fantastic for their cause if he were to focus only on black people, but he is President of all Americans. Healthcare Reform, Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, repeal of DADT, strengthening the FDA’s powers, increased accesibility to affordable housing, race to the top, removing the banks as middle men in terms of student loans and other educational initiatives. Restoring monetary benefits to Native Americans and African American farmers whose lands were unjustly taken from them, Financial and credit card reform, housing and mortgage credit for homebuyers, tax cuts for all middle and working class families, payroll tax cuts and on and on and on. Every bill, law and policy he signs into existence is meant to help all Americans regardless of race and these no nothing pathetic bottom of the barrel bottom feeders have the nerve to unjustly criticize him and sneeringly refer to us as “Afro-Americans.” On a normal day, they treat us like we are second class citizens, inferior and uneducated but when they want to destroy a man, irrespective of his Presidency, they find the token scumbag of a “real” black man Cornel West to wield legitimacy to their false argument. They should be ashamed of themselves, Jane Hamsher should be ashamed of herself for selling her cold soul to the almighty dollar; but most of all Cornel West should be ashamed of himself for being a turncoat, for being the vehicle of destruction and for betraying the people he purports to hold near and dear to his heart. Karma is a bitch and she is knocking on all the doors of the miscreants at FDL, the teabaggers, the PL, the token black people like Cornel and Smiley and everyone else who uses such blatantly racist tactics to destroy not only a President; but a good and decent man.

The President has defeated McConnell everytime. He doesn’t really have to work with John Boehner because he doesn’t do anything. I admit that I do hear the crap from some AA but all I can do is laugh. It’s like they expect the President to fix their financial issues or something. They had these problems long before 2008. They don’t seem to understand the role of President.

    we unaplogetic Obama-supporters need to get very aggressive against these groups whose hatred of President Obama blinds them to the progress he has made. By coincidence, I spent the day thinking about one such tool and I will be finnessing my idea to share with the TOD family.

    First Kasai, you do not have to apologize to this family. First of all those who choose to e mail to this person do what you feel in your heart that will give you peace within. We all respond differently to every situation that comes to us each and every day. However, we know from the actions that President Barack Obama has done for this country are tremendously remarkable. First, he was not elected to be ‘The Black President of the United States’. He is The President of ALL Americans of the United States. That is not what the evil men and women who write this vile stuff want one to believe. There is no black person( thinking in his or her right mind_) about President Obama doing something for them because they are black. Mind you, I said if they are in their right frame of mind. I have never felt that President Obama has to do something for me because I am black. My parents taught me to get up and study, read, converse with others, and work my behind off at all times. My grandparents did it in their gerenation and they produced some intelligent and professional children, one being my precious mother. Then my parents did the same and they produced three professional hardworking children. And believe me, things were terrible then like nothing some people, I am sure have only read about. I lived in the mess. However, I never looked or was allowed to think or look to ANY President of the United States to educate me, find a job for me, feed me or dress me. I was told to go and get the best education and work like hell to get the best. If all of the blacks would have waited for President Barack Obama to be President, these great men and women would NOT be who or where they are today. That is the plain and simple response. Now it is President Barack Obama’s fault because blacks are not being educated, not being in the workplace, not being able to fill the boardrooms, not being able to purchase clothes to wear. Bullshit(excuse me). Do not allow the hope that has always been in the heart of so many young people who are black, white, yellow and brown who can see that some of this shit is being removed because young and old smart people heard the voice in this President’s voice that there is hope alive now. He got the engines to move, now these evil and vile people want to stop those little red engines from moving full steam. DO NOT ALLOW these vile people take your eyes off of the ball. I am not conerned whether President Obama will be the last black President, but I am grateful that he is the President for all the people and doing a hell of a job while his skin color is following him around each step. STOP. STOP looking at your skin, and LOOK at you MIND. Do not allow people to poison it with this backward thinking. Do you know how many people in this world wish that they could have just an ounce of a man like President Barack Obama to run their country. No, that is the problem. ALL hateful and vile white men and women HATE the fact that Barack H. Obama is the President of the United States. That Is The Problem. Plain and simple. We can’t dress it up any other way. That is their problem. Including these so called blacks. What the hell do they want this man to do? I say, do not be distracted with this shit and move on. There is progress and more than I have seen in my lifetime by this President than ANY of the other 43. Plain and simple. We have just seen the ugly, long, worn out bandage removed by the election of President Barack Obama exposed these phony, ugly, nasty, vile disgustsing behinds, and it is shameful. I will tell all of my family here just like I told my ugly neighbors:I will enjoy this wonderful Presient, and I WILL NOT allow nothing you say or do to me take that away. NEVER. I may shed tears, and I mean hard and heavy ones because of how President Obama is being treated, but I will not allow these evil vile people take his goodness away from this country. Now let us do what we have to do, dust ourselves off, and not get messed up in our minds about this shit. That is what it is. Otherwise, why not speak it about a white President. Go around American and see the poverty in the white towns in our country, did they say this crap about the white Presidents, hell no. So do not let these fools destroy the good that we see daily in our President. I am 66, and I will NOT allow the joy that I see and feel in these days(take today as we started our day) destroy what we fought and worked so hard to get done in 2008. Do not be hoodwink by the thugs. Get up now and sing, pray, medidate, put some music on, read some factual material about what President Obama has done until it soaks your would, and tell the rest of these vile thugs to go to hell where they will probably end up if there is room for them. Do not allow anyone steal your joy. NEVER. Now go to bed and have a nice sleep, give thanks for the man in that Oval Office, Presiden Barack H. Obama and tell the rest of these fools to go straight to hell. I love you all.

That is one reason we must replenish our individual core each day with good things. We live in so much evil because that is what is shown daily to us. We are out there in the trenches fighting this battle, but we are stronger together, so it is right that you share with your loving family here so we all can help carry the loads that each of us carry each day. Ok. sleep well. We are going to make it.

    Y’all: Looks like it’s on full force…with the online “black ops” and all…

    Since the Clinton PUMAs are sensing an opening and bubbling up again with greater frequency, it might be worth in a pro-active effort, to take a trip down recent-memory lane:

    http://livingstingy.blogspot.com/2011/05/all-riled-up-about-politics-dont-be.html

    Ruturd Murdoch raised A LOT of money for Hillary instead of eventual winner, in a landslide mind you, President Barack Hussein Obama. It wasn’t totally weird to me since Hillary’s husband signed one of THE MOST destructive bills to America’s health and public discourse in history – the Telecommunications Act, which was created almost exclusively for Ruturd to spread his control. I was surprised at how blatant Ruturd and Hillary were about it though. I guess they understood there is no actual real journalism in the MegaMedia anymore.

    In light of the recent exposure of Murdoch’s dirty tricks (which were always known and whistleblown by those in the know all along…yet ignored), it really makes one wonder why the Clintons were so “friendly” with the greatest propagandists the world has ever known.

    It’s important to remember, as the campaigns heat up, that what is often referred to as “the media” is not stupid…they are not lazy…they are doing exactly what they are paid to do by their BigMoney employers (since they wouldn’t have their jobs if they didn’t), which is to keep anyone who isn’t in on the Big Game from controlling the levers of power in the world. This is why they’re so freaked by Stanley Ann’s son. He beat them anyway!

    We now see the Murdoch corruption being exposed to the highest levels of British government, with Prime Minister Cameron possibly being the next to fall, and we know Murdoch’s general of American operations, Roger “The Hut” Ailes does the same stuff, which has been reported about FOR YEARS, yet ignored once again. As someone who worked within the Murdoch Empire (and left in disgust for these exact reasons and have been whistleblowing about it for years), I first started supporting Barack Hussein Obama when I realized they were truly out to get him, and he never did, and never has played their game, as the Clintons did and do.

    Knowledge is power, my friends, and no, this is NOT good news for John McCain. Obama/Biden and all Democrats 2012!

      Bonkers, it is also important to note that most of Hillary’s top campaign people were hired by FOX news as ‘contributors’…
      Even some who claimed to be longtime Democrats all went on to work for the opposition instead of supporting and working with President Obama…

      I remember reading a year or two ago in the San Francisco chronicle Sunday magazine an interview done with Tavis Smiley; he had been shadowing and traveling with Hillary Clinton in her role as SoS…

      Even the awful Tavis Smiley could not understand the reasoning behind every television set in Hillary’s office, plane etc. being permanently tuned into Fox news…

      He told the interviewer that that was all Hillary and her staff – no CNN, no PBS nothing else- watched which was mighty interesting…
      Just a few more of those things that make you go hmmmm…

    Dear Chipsticks,

    First, it is essential that I quote you:

    “Let’s cut the crap and call it for what it is: Hamsher and her FDL sheeple are race-baiting scum.

    If they weren’t, an FDL post calling for “Afro-Americans” to be entered in an “education program” would have been deleted.

    But it’s still there.

    ***
    The more anonymous threats I get from Hamsherbots, the more I’ll post about her – and that’s a promise 😉

    Unlike Hamsher, I don’t – and never, ever will – ask for or accept donations.

    If anyone has a few dollars to spare, I will ask them to contribute to Obama/Biden 2012.

    Some of us aren’t in it for the money or attention – truly, we’re just not that desperate.”

    Thank you for that, Chipsticks, and now let’s be clear why ‘WE the People’ must be ‘in it’:

    We the People … are ‘in it’ because we all know exactly our responsibility to one another and our democracy:

    We are ‘in it’ because of all those whom have suffered and died these past 235 years because of their unyielding commitment to the ideals expressed so cogently in our shared Declaration of Independence.

    We are ‘in it’ because we know that we are the ones whom have lived through the past six decades and are fully cognizant of how close we are to materializing, at a deeper level that our Founders could not have possibly imagined — the day that their words would be indelibly render actual:

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    We are ‘in it’ because we are the ones whom must prevail because the forces of insanity, avarice, demagoguery, and hate are treasonously attempting to drive the USA to default on its obligations – to Americans and to the world.

    We are ‘in it’ because we know history and we know that only once before, in the years 1850 to 1865, has the magnificent vision of our Founders ever been so comprehensively and viciously threatened as it is NOW.

    We are ‘in it’ because the future, not only of the American promise, but also the future of a humanity committed to the arc of justice and the inalienable rights of ever person, depends on US – each of US, every day from now to Nov, 2012 and beyond.

    Thank you for being whom you are and for bringing everyone’s attention to the real threat to the promise of America – the greedy, petty, empty, hollow, foul, bitter, narcissistic purveyors of hate that have always been the internal source of the threat and destruction of the USA.

    Yes.We.Can. … DO.More.Together!

    Hey all, I’m just tuning in and I can’t believe me eyes. Chips, thank you for this post. I have got to dig in and read everything, but I am so sorry that you are going through so much behind the scenes to support this President and keep us informed and all together and looking down the road to the goal of 2012. Stay strong and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love.

    Kasai, I’m so sorry that you have had to suffer through this. I’m glad you shared this letter with your TOD family. I have been going through something lately and I shared a part of it with you and Chips a couple of weeks ago. I’m trying to cope with all these haters and their unjust actions. We have so many enemies out there and I fear that it’s going to get worse, but we must hold together and we will hold together. Seeing that beautiful family on Sunday gave me the hope I needed to get through this week and the next week and I will.

    Dear Lord be with this President and this country and all of it’s people. We need you Lord more now than ever. Bless Chipsticks and this TOD community and every individual and family that are represented here in Jesus name. Amen.

      Amen…..

      Thank you Doris peace and blessing:-)

    • July 18, 2011 at 3:30 am

      Doris, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers also. We are not alone in this family. We will support our President and do what is good and right in God’s grace. No weapon formed against President Barack Obama shall prosper, thus says the word. I inserted President Obama’s name. Be peaceful and trust for the best. The days ahead will be rough, but Nothing is impossible for the Divine Almighty. Nothing.

  19. July 18, 2011 at 2:13 am

    Well said, Bobfr. Thank you.

    I find it disgusting the these fake liberals think that Blacks need reeducation because they support President Obama. If we need education it would be to learn to use emails, Facebook, and tweeter to protect our right to register and vote. Every vote counts to reelect President Obama.

    Hmmmmmmm….. “that post – about the need for ‘Afro-Americans’ to enter an “education program’…… ”
    Interesting that “Afro-Americans” was used in the FDL post as well. Sounds like Maze Jackson just may be metamars and just may be hamsher (or one of her operatives) in disguise. Secondly, with Tom Joyner calling out west and smiley, it’s my understanding that the two sell-outs have already, to a certain extent, become pariah in the AA community.

      BTW, Chipsticks, remember that when you shine light on vampires, it destroys them. Keep up the good work! You have a very appreciative crowd here who will help magnify that light you’re shining on the PL firebagger sold-out crazies.

      One more thing….. The stupid comment under the caption about “Hitlerism” sounds like the teabagger nazi parades from last summer. Another indication of Firedogfake/Glenn GreenBeck affiliation with the teapublicans. Maybe they need to be educated on that part of history. News flash: Hitler was a racist. He didn’t like black people. Does Jessie Owens’ 1936 Olympic 4 gold medals ring a bell?

    This is just the beginning. We as a family here at TOD stand together and will overcome whatever is out there to try to deter us. Bless you Chips for the hard ground work that you do to keep this site going and up to date. Whenever I receive a letter like that, I not only respond back to the sender but to ALL who are listed on that email. As I pray for our dear President and his family, I also pray for divine justice for those who try to destroy him. We need to continue to send out our message of support and call down anyone who tries to divide and conquer. We stand together and our President will serve another term.

    • July 18, 2011 at 3:26 am

      Thank you for your expression of togetherness as a TOD family barb. We will continue to pray for divine justice for our enemies and those who openly and in the darkness are trying their best to try to destroy what this President is trying to accomplish for the good of the people. Yes, we need to be viligant in our message graced with love, truth, and support as we call out and call down anyone as you stated who is trying to divide and conquer. They will not divide us nor conquer us. We ALL here stand together as a bold and loving but fighting force for what is done right and justly. Yes, President Barack Obama will serve another term as President of the United States in God’s Almighty’s Name. Amen to that.

  23. July 18, 2011 at 3:19 am

    Chipsticks, we are so grateful for your hardwork in keeping us informed so that we can be actively doing our best to work against with truth to these disgusting people. I will leave the judgement to God for these people, but we have a job to accomplish in these next months, get out the truth. Thanks for your patience with us, your love and carefully keeping a watchful eye on our family here and how we express the truth. We appreciate your truths, your knowledge, and your presentation of the facts for us to see how we can help our President to accomplish his difficult tasks daily. We are grateful for our haven of peace, truth, and respect. May goodness flow to you as your strength is needed daily to continue this great task. We thank you soooooooooooo much Chips. Love you back, too.

    Wow. Yesterday everning I was a sick puppy. Got up this morning to this. First, I want to say thank you to you Chips for what you are doing. Thank you for shining the light on these hateful people.

    We all have to have this mindset. That the more they get angry and get uglier, the more we will push back at them with the facts. Thank you again, Chips. President Obama is not getting the ugly from his so-called supporters, his opponents have not even started.

    –Kasai, thanks for sharing this letter with us. I smelled skunk when I first read the letter. I read it one more time before I went down into the comments, and sure in enough, Hopefruit nailed it. These people can’t win on their record, the facts, and so even if they have to enlist or create faux black people, they will to derail this president.

    I want to bring to your attention something I read a while back. I can’t remember the guy’s name. But he said that he was going to inflitrate OFA to try to help bring this president down. I think he is one of those loud mouth Teapartiers.

    Later, I will try to google and see if I can find this person. I think I read this a while back on TPM.

    Thanks everybody. Vigilance should be our top priority.

    The more Chips expose these people, the uglier they are going to get. Our role would be to have a hide as tough an elephant and push back with ever moral fiber in our bodies.

    Hope this Monday starts off well for everyone.

      africa, I’m glad you’re feeling better 🙂 Yeah some Incredible evil stuff, floating around, but you know, we serve an awesomw God. Ain’t no telling how he’s going to bring us through this, but God’s got this, and I praise him for It. Thank you Lord 🙂

    OT and maybe not. I had C-Span Journal on this morning and they are going to have the Hamsher on. I had to turn it off. I am not good at Tweeting or stuff, can you all get to the c-span site and bombard them with this information or tweet, email or call?
    Thanks

      Notice the MSM has had nothing to say about Afghanistan lately? It’s completely off their radar right now – because things are going as well as can be expected under the given circumstances – nothing to pin on the President.

  26. July 18, 2011 at 9:30 am

    you are so on this.

    thank you

  27. July 18, 2011 at 9:55 am

    I just tweeted this to CSPAN, since they apparently find Hamsher credible enough to have her on their show unchallenged this morning.
