Beware Of The Republican Knuckle-Draggers

Those who wish to take us back to the beginnings of our evolutionary past.

February is Black History Month, a time when we Americans celebrate the great successes and accomplishments (against all odds) of African Americans. It’s a pity that we had to single out one month for this event; there shouldn’t have been a necessity for it. Other heritages in America have not been so ignored because they have been treated as one group who made this land a better place. But of course our dismal history of slavery and bigotry has made Americans, for too long, discount the triumphs of those who didn’t fit the profile of a “True American” which of course can only be some WHITE GUY. We sure have a past to be ashamed of but as long as there are efforts made to correct our ugly antiquity, we can hold our heads high and feel pride at our excellence.

But unfortunately, there are those who keep trying to take us back to a time full of hatred and intolerance. They wish not to feel prideful for those they deem beneath them. It is truly sad that no matter how far we’ve advanced along our evolutionary path, the knuckle-draggers are waiting in the wings to annul enlightenment and drag us back to ignorance. These are the people; I like to shed light upon because they are a plague waiting to happen. We need diligence, an alertness of mind to recognize and stop their contamination before it can ruin what so many have tried to build using much blood, sweat and tears.

My little town puts out a neighborhood biweekly newspaper that tries to inform and report the many happenings around the community. We would be looking at a garbage dump at the entrance of our town


if it were not for the professional staff of this paper who investigated and exposed those who tried to sneak this abomination under our unsuspecting noses. I would actually say that I love this little paper but there is something that stops me. They have employed a syndicated columnist who writes a weekly article on his chosen subject of hate.  In other words he pushes intolerance and animosity. Oh did I mention he also is of African descent, what a sad commentary for Black America month.  Please read his misinformed and Sarah Palin babble of an article below and remember, we the ones who THINK must expose these agitators whenever or wherever we notice them; they are in the words of the late great Bill Hicks, A VIRUS WITH SHOES. thinkingblue


Obama's racial politics

Walter E. Williams hammers BHO for liberal use of skin-color agitation

There’s been a heap of criticism placed upon President Barack Obama’s domestic policies that have promoted government intrusion and prolonged our fiscal crisis and his foreign policies that have emboldened our enemies. Any criticism of Obama pales in comparison with what might be said about the American people who voted him in to the nation’s highest office.

Obama’s presidency represents the first time in our history that a person could have been elected to that office who had long-standing close associations with people who hate our nation. I’m speaking of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s pastor for 20 years, who preached that blacks should sing not “God Bless America,” but “God damn America.” Then there’s William Ayers, now professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago but formerly a member of the Weather Underground, an anti-U.S. group that bombed the Pentagon, U.S. Capitol and other government buildings. Although Ayers was never convicted of any crime, he told a New York Times reporter, in the wake of the September 2001 terrorist attack, “I don’t regret setting bombs. … I feel we didn’t do enough.” Obama has served on a foundation board and appeared on panels with Ayers, and even held campaign events in his home, joined by Ayers’ former-fugitive wife, Bernardine Dohrn. Bill Ayers’ close association with Obama is reflected by his admission that he helped write Obama’s memoirs, “Dreams from My Father.”

{{{FACT CHECK}}} In a Web ad and in repeated attacks from the stump, McCain describes the two as associates, and Palin claims they "pal around" together. But so far as is known, their relationship was never very close.

The GOP says in an Internet ad that the two "ran a radical ‘education’ foundation" in Chicago. But the supposedly "radical" group was supported by a Republican governor and included on its board prominent local civic leaders, including one former Nixon administration official who has given $1,500 to McCain’s campaign this year. Education Week says the group’s work "reflected mainstream thinking" among school reformers. The group was the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, started by a $49 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation, which was established by the publisher Walter Annenberg, a prominent Republican whose widow, Leonore, is a contributor to the McCain campaign.

{{{FACT CHECK}}} President Barack Obama on some of Rev. Jeremiah Wright's comments– “Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.

Because these particular statements by Rev. Wright are so contrary to my own life and beliefs, a number of people have legitimately raised questions about the nature of my relationship with Rev. Wright and my membership in the church. Let me therefore provide some context.

As I have written about in my books, I first joined Trinity United Church of Christ nearly twenty years ago. I knew Rev. Wright as someone who served this nation with honor as a United States Marine, as a respected biblical scholar, and as someone who taught or lectured at seminaries across the country, from Union Theological Seminary to the University of Chicago. He also led a diverse congregation that was and still is a pillar of the South Side and the entire city of Chicago. It's a congregation that does not merely preach social justice but acts it out each day, through ministries ranging from housing the homeless to reaching out to those with HIV/AIDS. –“

 Many Americans thought that with Obama’s presidency, we were moving to a “post-racial society.” Little can be further from the truth. Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, in a National Review (Jan. 18) article titled “Obama’s Racial Politics,” says that Obama’s message about race and his charges of racial bigotry are “usually coded and subtle.” Criticizing Republicans, before a Mexican-American audience, Obama said that he ran for office because “America should be a place where you can always make it if you try – a place where every child, no matter what they look like (or) where they come from, should have a chance to succeed.” If you don’t get it, “no matter what they look like” is code for nonwhite. Hanson says that Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, has “found race a convenient refuge from criticism – most recently accusing his congressional auditors of racism, for their grilling him over government sales of firearms to Mexican cartel hitmen.”

{{{THINKINGBLUE FACT CHECK}}}  Victor Davis Hanson writes for the totally one sided and disturbed RIGHT-WING NATIONAL REVIEW he has only one desire and that is to bring down Barack Obama. Googling his name brings nothing but his disgusting hateful written rhetoric against Liberals and Democrats (and of course President Obama).  He incites and lies, there is not much more to Victor Davis Hanson than that. Watch this video:


I once did a spoof on The National Review's yearly cruise it says much about this GOP group of nasties: National Review Cruise, A SHIP OF FOOLS! TB

Obama’s racial politics are aided and abetted by a dishonest news media. When Republican candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry referred to “a big black cloud that hangs over America, that debt that is so monstrous,” he was dishonestly accused of racism by MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, who said, “That black cloud Perry is talking about is President Barack Obama.” Schultz omitted the second half of Perry’s quote. Chris Matthews referred to Perry’s vision of federalism as “Bull Connor with a smile.”

Rick Perry… Is an IDIOT need I say more? TB

The media have help from black congressmen in stirring up racial dissent. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., said white presidents must be “pushed a great deal more” to address black unemployment than would a black president. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, said that argument over the debt ceiling is proof of racial animosity toward Obama. Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said that Republicans are trying to deny blacks the vote. Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., said the tea party wishes to lynch blacks and hang them from trees. Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., said Perry’s job creation in Texas is “one stage away from slavery.”

Let me add to the TRUTHS written here by Walter E. Williams who's trying to paint them as racial, watch my video below:

Ignorance Is NOT Bliss! Right-wing Ideology

All of this places a heavy burden on people who care about our nation. We must ensure that the 2012 elections are the most open and honest elections in U.S. history. Should Obama lose, I wouldn’t put it past leftists, progressives, the news media and their race-hustling allies, as well as the president, to fan the fires of hate and dissension by charging that racists somehow stole the election, thereby giving support and excuses for the kind of violence and lawlessness that we’ve witnessed in flash mobs and Occupy Wall Street riots.

Despicable Doublespeak and totally unmitigated and hypocritical BULLSHIT. Walter E. Williams is a charlatan and hasn't an ounce of integrity. View the video below and see who the lawless ones were that committed numerous acts of violence. thinkingblue
