The first and the greatest black commandment to make sure our president wins on Election Day is:
“Thou shalt put Barack Obama before thyself, before thy children, before thy principles, and before thy values.”
BQI Editor’s Note
In a recent discussion with a black friend an Obama supporter I made the following points. I noted that in 2008 just prior to the election, the economy was collapsing, banks were failing or about to fail; clear warning signs were appearing that the country was about to enter a literal financial Armageddon; we were engaged in two wars that were not going well; people were afraid and concerned.
I then asked my friend to tell me, given all of these conditions, what exactly did he see in Obama’s past that convinced him that Obama could successfully fix, manage and lead the largest organization in the world; the U.S. government and it’s people. I told him he needed to give me specific examples not the rhetoric provided by Obama. SILENCE…CRICKETS.
I then told him that to face reality he had to admit that, with an enormous crisis facing the country, he was willing to hand the largest most complicated organization in the world over to a man that; (1) he knew nothing about; and (2) who had literally no experience with successfully leading any organization other than the Harvard Law Review. I told him that he had to admit, then, that the only basis for his decision had to be because Obama was black. Think about it, my friend, family and a significant number of other Americans were willing to sacrifice their; their children, grand children and other’s future to someone who spoke nicely and looked good but was devoid of any substance and clear experience to fulfill his promises. In other words…these Americans were willing to go on face value and the man’s words that he could fix things. These are the same people who will research for months the specs on a car before making a purchase or fret for days and weeks over what color to paint a room. Yet, with a the very health and viability of their nation at stake they cheerfully handed over the reins of power to literally a complete unknown. Now to top it all off my friend, as many blacks, is willing to repeat their 2008 mistake.
And we wonder why America is in trouble.
Below is an interesting strategy provided to BQI from “someone” (an unknown person) on how Obama can secure the black vote in 2012.
Re: How to Secure the Black Vote for Barack Obama
By: The Honorable Brother X
We are in terrible trouble!
And the Tea Party can go straight to hell!
According to a recent AP report:
“ One of the country’s oldest civil rights groups says President Barack Obama may have a tougher time winning at least three battleground states in November should black voter turnout fall at least 5 percentage points below the record levels that helped to put him in the White House. Black voter turnout of 64.7 percent was a significant factor in Obama’s victory in 2008, and African Americans are considered solidly behind Obama now. But having achieved the milestone of electing Obama as the nation’s first black president, black voters may be less motivated to return to the polls in droves again, the National Urban League said in a report to be released Tuesday
“Assuming no change in 2008 voting patterns, Urban League researchers said, black turnout at about 60 percent or below could cost Obama North Carolina and make it difficult for him to win Ohio and Virginia. In addition to diminished voter enthusiasm, the still-ailing economy, persistent high unemployment among blacks, new state voting laws and limited growth in the African American population could help discourage turnout” .
However, I will show you in detail how to get the black community to solidly get behind our most ethical and honest President so that he will have another victory in November 2012. I will show you three ways to do that:
Depend upon black people’s emotions instead of logic and rational thinking
Obscure Obama’s true performance for the last 3 ½ years
Demonize Republicans wherever you can and whenever you can
Ignorance is your greatest asset
First of all, blacks should go into the next presidential election fueled with pure high-octane emotion – no logic, no facts, and no critical thinking at all. Let’s be perfectly clear about it. There is a frightenly growing number of blacks , especially those who will not vote for Obama again, who engage in critical thinking and reasoning. They will spread their poison to other black folks and doom Obama’s chances for re-election. Ignorance is your greatest asset.
Do not let black Americans reflect and ask themselves: “Are you better off today than four years ago?” Do not let them be like the black woman in Texas who told Obama to his face in 2010: “I’m one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for”. Do not allow them to think.
Box Office Smashed
Encourage black people to get the DVD of the film The Obama Effect, a box-office smash that grossed an astonishing $111,000 (thousand not million) nationwide before it closed after 3 solid weeks in theaters. This film helps to get back to black folks “the Obama feeling” when he got elected. After all, we have nothing tangible to offer but emotional past memories of November 2008.
Never give black people logical reasons to vote for Obama because we have none. “Change” went from a winning slogan to a machine in a neighborhood laundromat. “Hope” soon became the last name of a famous comedy actor (Bob). We must focus on the message of professional “flyjock” Tom Joyner (who should be your unofficial campaign co-chairman) who said: “Let’s not even deal with facts right now. Let’s deal with our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have a chance to reelect the first African American president … And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.” Our radio ad should say “We got your Black!” instead of “We got your back.”
“Once you go Black, you don’t go back.”
Mr. Joyner is smart. He knows we have no logical reasons to vote for Obama. He says we must be true to our blackness by refusing to look at the facts. Therefore there are 10 reasons to vote for Obama:
1. He’s black.
2. He’s black.
3. He’s black.
4. He’s black.
5. He’s black.
6. He’s black.
7. He’s black.
8. He’s black.
9. He’s black.
10. He’s black.
And don’t get that out of order.
Racial Pride, Not Facts
This year’s presidential election must be all about racial pride and not about facts. Facts are irrelevant. For example, a Black woman in Georgia was under the impression that unemployment was going down because of Obama–when unemployment was actually rising! We must continue to give black people the impression that things are getting better when they are not: “Tuesday evening, July 24, standing in Oakland, California, which is approximately 30 minutes from the city of Stockton, Obama told the people that his economic policy was working and the people, led by Rep. Barbara Lee, cheered.–
Unemployment (U-3) – steadly at 8.3% (up from 8.1 in Apr)
Underemployed (U-6) – rose to 14.9%
Long Term Unemployment ([more than] 27 weeks) 5.4 million or 41.9% of all unemployed
Discouraged workers – no longer looking: 821,000
Labor Force Participation: 63.8%
Americans who have left labor force: 8.6 million
Americans on Food Stamps (April 2012): 46.2 million (1 in 7 Americans)
US GDP (1st Qtr 2012): 1.9% (Historical 3.25%) – GDP under 3% 6 of last 7 Qtrs (3% – 4th Qtr 2011)
It is supposed to be a secret that Obama had not had his daily econonic briefing since April 2011, so don’t tell anyone . People will think he does not care about the economy on a daily basis anymore and only cares about getting re-elected.
Getting black people happy about bad news is a challenge.
Also, do not disclose the fact that the Obama campaign is begging for cash. “Each plea for money from President Obama and his allies has become more urgent and desperate than the last”. We can only attribute this to racism. Nobody wants to give to Obama because he’s black!
Blue-Pill Black Folks
Black people must be disconnected from reality. Illusion must be King. If you are familiar with the film The Matrix, those who took the red pill woke up to reality from the virtual manufactured fantasy world. Those who took the blue pill willingly chose to stay within their illusion. We need as many “blue-pill black folks” as we can get! We must also take advantage of the fact there are blacks do not accept the truth as it is but rather believe that the truth is what they want it to be. Facts are quite inconvenient. Joe Hagan of New York Magazine wrote: “Over $15 trillion in debt, [more than 8] percent unemployment, yawning structural problems, a severely gridlocked government – Obama is in a box, and there is only one way out of this box: the low road. ” The low road and ignorance will keep Obama in the White House.
Get Black Folks in Line
You must get black folks in line with the following line of shallow emotional thinking:
“You do not understand the pressures that our president has to endure on a daily basis. You cannot expect him to be perfect. He is a public servant, not a perfect servant. Nor can you expect for him to clean up George W. Bush’s eight-year mess after only 3 1/2 years. Of course Obama made promises. But after he took office he saw some realities he was not privy to when he was a candidate. Therefore he was compelled to do things that would make him to appear to ‘break’ his promises. He is only dealing with political realities – realpolitik. Even this gay marriage issue is just a single issue that black Christians need to ignore.
“Our president is different than Bush. Bush was an evil man. Obama is a man of color. People of color are naturally given to issues of justice for not only Black people, but for all people. Therefore Obama cares about justice. Bush did not care about peace. Bush was a war monger. People of color are naturally given to issues of peace. Therefore Obama is interested in peace because that is in his nature. That is why he got a Nobel Peace Prize. (The next time he gets a good idea for a movie, he should get an Academy Award.) That is why we cannot criticize him for his actions for attacking Libya while we must criticize the white Europeans for attacking Libya. They are only interested in regaining their power in North Africa. He is sensitive to other people of color, not only in Libya, not only in the United States, but around the world. People of color always have been an oppressed people. Therefore Obama understands oppression and could never be insensitive to us. Even though it may look like Obama is waging war against an African nation, his intentions have always been humanitarian, for the good of the people there. But Bush always had malevolent intentions. Obama cannot have malevolent intentions. Why? Because being a Black man, a man of color, his morals are superior to Bush’s. Therefore what Obama does must be with the best intentions for the good of all. In his heart of hearts, he will always do the right thing on behalf of our oppressed brothers and sisters. We must give him our complete trust. The talk coming from certain Black celebrities of holding Obama ‘accountable’ only serves the white oppressor and the racist Republicans who never wanted him in office in the first place. That is also the talk of jealous high-profile Black playa haters.
“We must re-elect our president and let him finish the job we voted for him to do. Remember, there are racist Republicans who HATE the idea of a Black man in the White House, and we must do our very best to defeat them. We must show them that we people of color will not surrender to the forces of white supremacy and racism in the United States. And since the job of the presidency is a very stressful and sometimes lonely job, we must show our president that we back him 100% to give him encouragement. If it was not for those racist Republicans trying to stop him at every turn, the change we voted for would have come sooner. They are only trying to turn back the clock on civil rights, and Obama is doing his best to stop them in our behalf. He is only trying to continue the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King who said thatcolor of skin is more important than character. Where would we be without our president? If it were not for Obama, unemployment may have shot up to 35% or even 90%. Now it is a miniscule and manageable 8.3% (July 2012) and we should applaud his efforts. (But it was horrible when Bush had around a 5% unemployment rate.) He is doing his best to fix the economy when the GOP is trying their best to tear it down. They just don’t want to give the Brotha a chance. We have to be patient. Also too, we must not expect him to be the president of ‘Black America.’ He is the president of all America. He does not need to lift one finger for black people. There is no way he can focus attention on any one community, much less the black community. And it is unfair for us to expect him to even though he pays much attention to other communities. We should be satisfied to have a black man in the Oval Office no matter what he does not do for us.
“What will we say to our children if we say we did not support our first Black president to stay in office for another 4 years? This man gives hope that our children can be anything they want to be, even to be the leader of the most powerful nation in the world. Obama must remain a role model for our children. He is an inspiration to him and to us. Once we were in the slave house. Now we are in the White House. And we must stay in the White House. We must count the whites who oppose Obama as racists. We must count the Blacks who oppose Obama as sellout Uncle Toms, even the ones who voted for him, and now are against him. Any others who oppose Obama we must consider tools of the oppressors.
“Times are hard, but remember; our president is God’s anointed and appointed for a time such as this. God has a plan for this man and we must allow our president to continue to work out God’s plan for us and the world. Even if he never did anything for Black people, we need to be satisfied that we as Black people made history. We are in the White House now!”
Keep Black Folks in Line
We must train black people to not think like free people. Feed black people that preceding bit of BS and they will embrace it, heart and soul. You must milk the “feeling-good-to-have-a-black-president” factor for all it is worth. Also, isn’t it unfortunate that Blacks who vote Democrat have been made to fear, if not to be terrified, of expressing open opposition to the “party line”? They do not want to be called “Uncle Toms,” “traitors” and “sellouts.” Not to oppose President Obama, “our first Black president,” is a part of that party line. Slavish conformity to that line takes precedence over independent and critical thinking. We even have to train black people to believe that any criticism of Obama is illegal (the technique worked in Soviet Russia, North Korea, Cuba, and Nazi Germany), case in point: “[T]eacher Tanya Dixon-Neely tells students that it is a criminal offense to criticize Barack Obama and that they could be ‘arrested’ for doing so. You have to keep black folks in line.
Blacks who are rational and who examine issues carefully must be considered the enemy. Our black people must be commanded to ignore black activists such as Glen Ford of BlackAgendaReport.com who wrote: “[R]eflexive support for Obama has mangled the Black polity beyond recognition. [Black Obama supporters] are more loyal to him than to ourselves, our children, our principles and values.” William Owens Jr., author of the book Obama: Why Black Americans Should Have Doubts, writes: “Obama’s handsome features, physical stature, and attempt at eloquence combine to make him a charismatic politician. You must admit this can be a deadly combination for us as Black Americans. In my view, we tend to have an addiction to ‘feeling good.’ We are easily satisfied with goose bumps that go no deeper than our first layer of skin. We are often afraid to look deeper—beyond the obvious—because then we would have to be responsible for our choices and refute the belief that a person who looks like us will automatically ‘take care of us.’ It is the Black mindset that presses upon us to say, ‘Give the brother a chance.’”
(I mean after 3 ½ years into his presidency, the brother needs more time! People are taking his poor performance completely out of context. And even if he fails, we just blame the Republicans, not Obama – they were just too strong for the brotha and did everything they could to make our president of change fail!)
Speaking of blacks who pay attention to issues, we must also pay careful attention to Harry C. Alford, President and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC, who said:
“When Obama became president, we were all happy about the symbolism—America’s first black president. We didn’t really care about his position or views on anything. We just wanted a black president no matter what. We should have been more careful, as his views on small business, especially black business, are counter to ours.
“His view of business is that it should be a few major corporations which are totally unionized and working with the government, which should also be massive and reaching every level of American society. This, his first Executive Order was the reinstatement of Project Labor Agreements in government contracting. PLAs give labor unions an exclusive [option] in construction jobs—all participating firms must use union labor, or, at least, pay union wages and abide by union rules. This activity, in effect, discriminates against blacks, Hispanics, and women, per se, as trade unions deliberately under-employ them….
“President George W. Bush eliminated PLA’s from federal contracting and his main reason was ‘union discriminate against small business, women, and minorities.’ So here we were with the first black president who deliberately discriminates against small business, women, and minorities. How ironic.” (Edward Klein, The Amateur, Washington DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012, pp. 188-189).
Uncle Toms, Traitors, and Zebras
And it must not get out to black Christians that certain members Coalition of African American Pastors, over 1500 black pastors nationwide, are refusing to support Obama . They are sellout, Uncle Tom, traitor, Uncle Tom, hafrican, Uncle Tom, zebra, Uncle Tom, shoe-licking Uncle Toms: “We voted for Obama. We campaigned for Obama. But he has left our founding purposes. With all of the problems in America within the black community – education, jobs, business, the economy – with all of our problems, he chooses to get in front of same-sex marriage. That flies in the face of the African-American community.
“We feel betrayed” . Those Uncle Tom traitor Uncle Toms! We must boycott these pastors by not attending their churches or reading our Bibles. How dare they put their principles before their skin color!
And black people better fall in line and support gay marriage in the Democratic platform or else they are bigots and haters. We are to follow the Democratic Party line to the letter as we allow them to define our values: “‘There is no more loyal group of voters to the DNC than black people, and yet they (the Democratic National Committee) have done nothing to ensure that that constituency is able to participate fully in the economic benefits of party business’ said a DNC member who spoke on the condition of anonymity” . The Democratic Party tells black folks to jump, and black folks are supposed to reply: “How high, Boss?”
However, it is always a pleasure to hear black people who do not engage in logic and critical thinking call in to conservative talk shows. Emotions matter to them. They despise facts. Black people who use logic to criticize Obama’s performance terrify me and should terrify you too. Logical blacks, especially former Obama supporters, who examine issues, are totally useless to us. Blacks who care about race and not about issues are highly valuable to us.
Therefore, black people must put race before the Constitution, race before principles, race before the truth, race before their families and race before their country. They must love their blackness more than they love Jesus – “Let’s not even deal with facts right now. Let’s deal with our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have a chance to reelect the first African American president … And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.” We must refuse to look at facts.
The Truth is Not Your Friend
Next, you must also obscure Obama’s true performance for the last 3 ½ years. The truth is not your friend. Even God cannot change the truth. You must not allow black people to examine Obama’s record too closely. For example, you must not let black people think about how the black employment rate jumped to 14.4% in last June. You have to keep the truth from them. They must believe it is going down.(Tell them the white folks lied.)You must not let them discover the $787 Stimulus did not work and did not create the 3 million jobs as promised no matter how much we claim that it did . You must give black folks the impression that it was successful beyond their wildest dreams. You must ignore the fact that Obama promised that unemployment would not go above 8% while according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment has been consistently over 8% (8.3 in July 2012) during his term. In mid-July, U.S. jobless claims jumped 34,000 to 386,000.
It was recently reported that there are 1.9 million jobs less than when President Obama signed the supposed job-creating stimulus package in February 2009. Though that indicates Obama’s plan was not successful, remember, facts are irrelevant. Let black folks think it worked. They won’t research and investigate. They will take our word as the gospel truth. We must give black folks their black president out of an Obama-Effect-feeling-good-about-being-black symbolism, not out of substance and realities. We must refuse to give black people the facts.
We must refuse to expose our black people to facts such as these from Black Enterprise magazine: “You rarely hear the President talking about the minority business community. Oops, I forgot, that would entail talking about Black businesses also and this president will do nothing to remotely make people think he is Black.
“He will meet privately with homosexual or Hispanic business owners before he meets with Black business owners. Obama has no minority businessmen in his inner circle” . Black folks don’t need to know all that.
“The Worst Mistake I Ever Made in My Life”
You must also never let them know that very little of that stimulus money went to black contractors: “The National Black Chamber of Commerce, Conference of Black Mayors and the National Black Caucus of State Legislators, charge the Obama administration isn’t enforcing key portions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They say as a result, Black contractors in states across the country are being shut out of federal highway construction work” . Harry C. Alford, CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, who not only voted for Barack Obama (“The worst mistake I ever made in my life.”) but personally contributed $2000 to his presidential campaign and supported Obama’s 2009 $787 Billion stimulus legislation, says: “The Stimulus Bill ended up being a nearly $1 trillion spend fest and Black business got virtually none of the contracting. We were blocked out as they guided contracts to union shops. Ninety-nine percent of Black businesses are not union so when there is union exclusivity we are out in the cold. The Broadband Deployment grants totaled $7.4 billion. Despite notable Black firms applying for these grants not a penny went to them. Thus, our neighborhoods will continue to lag behind in Internet deployment and keep us at a disadvantage. During Fiscal Year 2010 there were 64,880 Black owned firms in the federal procurement data base. Only 3,990 received any type of contract activity. Thus only 5.4% of the Black business database amounted to 1.5% of the total dollars spent by the federal government – 94.6% were on the outside looking in…The President wants to build a high speed rail system. In order to skew it to union shops only he placed the management of this in the Federal Railroad Administration as opposed to the Federal Transit Administration which manages all other railway activity. Why? Because this way he could avoid the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program and keep Black business out of the contracting activity – again Union Only…The people of South Carolina were happy to receive the news that Boeing plans to build a new airplane plant there. There is a significant Black population in South Carolina and our businesses in that area were equally excited. Then, the federal government steps in to try and stop Boeing from bringing tens of thousands of jobs and supplier contracts. Why? The plant will not be unionized counter to the President’s philosophy. This is anti-entrepreneurial!”
You must never let that get out into the black community or they will become suspicious. The last thing we need is black folks engaging in critical thinking. They need to think “He (Obama) black. He black. He black. He black.” We must refuse to look at the facts.
And for the recent Federal affordable healthcare legislation (“Obamacare”), do not let black people know that it is not “free health care for all” as many of us believe it is about getting free healthcare. Don’t let them know that if they do not have it, they must purchase approved health insurance plus be responsible for deductibles and co-pays and also be responsible for expenses that the health insurance policies won’t cover under the “Exclusions and Limitations.” Even if they got the insurance with federal subsidies, those policies will never cover everything with no expense to the policy holders. Insurance companies would go out of business quickly if they paid claims for everything. It is a good thing many blacks do not understand the underpinnings of the insurance business or they would really get suspicious of Obamacare. Let’s not disclose to them the “fine print.”
We Must Refuse to be Nosy
Also too about that “Operation Fast and Furious,” that insignficant Department of Justice gun-running operation that delivered automatic weapons to the Mexican drug cartels without the permission of the Mexican government, of which weapons were found at the crime scenes of hundreds of murdered Mexicans and two dead U.S. Border Agents. Now even though Attorney General Eric Holder said he did not know anything about it until the spring of 2011 but had regular memos of the operation in 2010 does not mean anything was wrong. Even though Holder refused to turn over subpoenaed documents, uncovered by CBS News (“ATF Fast and Furious: New documents show Attorney General Eric Holder was briefed in July 2010” – ) related to the congressional investigation and Obama asserting Executive Privilege may look like there is a cover-up of a scandal where people died, a writer for CNN told us not to be too “nosy,” and we may not be able to handle the truth (“And maybe it’s better for us not to be so nosy, not to know everything because, to paraphrase the famous line from the movie ‘A Few Good Men,’ many of us won’t be able to handle the truth.”). We must refuse to look at the facts.
Everyone knows the real reason they are against Holder and Obama is racism! (You need to play that “Race Card” often like it is your American Express card.) It is racist to force these two black leaders to have integrity. They don’t need integrity; they are black and that is enough. (Now if the President and the Attorney General were George W. Bush and John Ashcroft, we would have given them hell and demanded integrity of them. We don’t believe in holding our own to the same standard as others.) So don’t let black folks get too nosy about the truth within Obama’s transparent and ethical administration. That will doom Obama’s chances with the black vote.
No Quarter for Traitors!
We must demand the arrest of traitor former black congressman and former Obama supporter (co-chair of the 2008 campaign) Artur Davis, who said: “[W]earing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities. On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.” We must not tolerate a rational free black man openly criticizing our black president! He could greatly damage our cause.
Black folks also should not get too nosy about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) where Americans can be detained indefinitely on the mere suspicion of being terrorists. We must silence nosy black women like Monique Ruffin, someone who is concerned about something trivial as “constitutional rights,” who said: “I have been a die-hard supporter of President Obama. As a single unemployed mother, I have donated five dollars here and there when I am able to for his re-election. Now I’m questioning if I have made a mistake. How can someone who says ‘Yes we can’ and ’I am my brother’s keeper’ also deprive people of their basic rights enshrined in the Bill of Rights? How can someone we’ve come to trust so deeply and support so widely be the same person that has dealt the most profound betrayal? (“President Obama Is His Brother’s Keeper, Indefinitely,” )” Ruffin, with her logical and her nosy self, also says: “This new law is scary; it actually frightens me for all Americans… The NDAA fundamentally changes the fabric our nation. As terrifying as this new law is, what is more chilling is the silence surrounding this legislation. Where are Americans with our protest and rage about our liberties coming under attack? Where are the political pundits, media, viral videos and the Occupiers? The silence is deafening.” How dare she tell the truth!
This is what I mean about keeping black people ignorant. Women like Ruffin are liable to educate not only black people but all Americans about laws that they should not pay any attention to. Who cares about the Bill of Rights anyway? When you keep black folks ignorant of their rights, you keep them under your control.
Let black folks pay no attention to writers like Jay Janson who writes: “Historians will denounce [Obama’s] shameful exceeding of his executive powers under the Constitution, to have assassinated even American citizens without trial, and ridicule the pack of lies he offered in sick defense of his frightening Hellfire and Predator drones murdering intentionally and collaterally while menacing all citizens in some of the most poverty-stricken populations on earth. Historians will judge his character by his once infamous joking about using a drone on his daughters boyfriends- ‘they’ll never know what hit them’” . Who cares?
Don’t Burden Black People with the Truth
There is no need to burden black people with the truth. Facts are inconvenient. “Let’s not even deal with facts right now. Let’s deal with our blackness and pride — and loyalty. We have a chance to reelect the first African American president … And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.” (He black, he black, he black.) We must refuse to look at the facts.
Isn’t it fortunate that the proverb is true that “to hide something from a black man, put it in a book”? Also put it in a newspaper. The Chicago Defender and the Final Call recently published a shameful article called “Obama Continues to Disrespect the Black Press.” It says: “A panel discussion at the National Newspaper Publishers Association annual convention titled, ‘Get Out the Vote’ should have been renamed, ‘Get Out the Anger’ as Black newspaper owners expressed their strong displeasure over the Obama administration’s failure to accommodate the needs of the Black Press…Disillusionment with the president and his staff is not limited to the Black Press. ‘They feel that they’re being taken for granted, they don’t feel included, ‘said Jaime Cain, publisher of theTimes Weekly newspaper in Joliet, Ill. ‘I’m hearing, “So when President Obama loses …” This is what I’m hearing in the community’”. These newspapers should know better than to criticize our Black President as we are not to look at his actions, only his blackness. It is the color of skin, not character, that matters. Didn’t Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. teach that?
The DNC Could Care Less About You
And if certain black folks tell our Democratic National Committee not to take them for granted, let them believe that the DNC will pay attention to them. The reality is that the DNC could care less about them. They know that blacks who have voted Democrat for years will not vote for Mitt Romney and black folks won’t go anywhere else. They know their place. Now if 25% of black voters said they would consider voting Republican, we would be in real trouble. And black folks who complain about the DNC will end up voting for Obama anyway, so their threats mean nothing to the DNC leadership!
He Does Not Lie–He Just Does Not Tell the Truth
And black people must overlook when the most honest and ethical U.S. president in U.S history does not tell the truth. Just because he does not tell the truth does not mean he lies. For example:
· He said that he was outspent in the campaign in 2008 when “President Obama raised several hundred million dollars during the 2008 election, more than twice what Republican rival John McCain raised and a far cry more than any other U.S. President before him.” . Remember, integrity is for white folks.
· About the monthly employment figures“[I]t is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available’ .
· “President Obama promised that if you have health insurance now, it won’t change. Here are 7 ways he lied:
1) Under the new law your insurer can’t drop your coverage after you get sick. This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied.
2) Your children can continue to be insured under your plan until they are 26. (Click and read this.) This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied.
3) New coverage is added, including preventative care like mammograms and colonoscopies with no “out of pocket” like charging a deductible, co-pay or coinsurance. This is a change in the insurance you already have. Obama lied.
4) If you pay for your own insurance and your income is below a certain level, you will receive subsidies to help pay for your insurance. Even if you earn four times the federal poverty rate, or currently about $93,000 for a family of four, you will have to pay no more than 9.5 percent of your income. This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied.
5) The law prohibits insurance companies from placing a “lifetime cap” on the amount of coverage you have. Many people were discovering that they reached this cap right when they needed insurance the most. This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied.
6) The cost of your insurance will be lower than it would be without this law. There are several ways the new law will lower the cost of your insurance. First, by requiring people to have insurance, people can’t “free load” by showing up at the emergency room without insurance. Currently when this happens hospitals charge more to everyone else. So the new law’s “mandate” stops the “free loaders” — the cause of these extra charges — from running up your insurance cost. Also, the new law’s “80/20 Rule” says insurers have to use 80% of their revenue for health care. This even means you might get a rebate. This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied.
7) Insurers won/’t be able to keep you from getting insurance or charge you more based on a pre-existing condition. This is a change in the coverage you already have. Obama lied”·
“In the spirit of charity, some of the lies can be chalked up, at least in part, to fanciful family narratives. Obama claims his maternal grandfather fought in Patton’s army and liberated Nazi death camps. He says his paternal grandfather was tortured by the British imperialists in Kenya. He’s claimed his Indonesian step-grandfather was killed by the Dutch while fighting for independence. None of that is true. What I find more interesting are the lies Obama tells not so much about himself, but about society. In Dreams from My Father, Obama tells readers that he struggled with racism and racial alienation all his life. He wasn’t a starter on his high-school basketball team because he played ‘black’ while his coach coached ‘white.’ He confabulated a black friend in high school who, like himself, was shunned for racial reasons. He wrote of a ‘big fight’ with a white ex-girlfriend who, after seeing a racially charged play, ‘started talking about why black people were so angry all the time’
· “Obama told students that a bill to freeze student loan interest rates would save them $1,000 a year when it will only save them $87” .
Never let it be said that our honest and ethical president and the Obama campaign use integrity. You need squash that rumor immediately! What did Tom Joyner say: “Let’s not even deal with facts right now. Let’s deal with our blackness and pride — and loyalty.”
Create the Illusion for Illusion is King
Also you must tell black people how Obama was the most popular State Senator in Illinois. He was a household name there. He was getting people jobs, education, and health care right and left in Chicago. There was more change coming out of Obama than out of Coke machines. Even in his first Illinois primary he was so popular he came out the winner after beating all the candidates on the same ballot. (Even the incumbent State Senator Alice Palmer voted for Obama and not for herself in that primary.) He was a genius in fueling economic growth in Chicago and Illinois. Unemployment fell to 0% when he took charge in Illinois. (Hopefully you will convince black people that that entire BS was actually true. None of it is true, but they will believe it anyhow.)
DEMONIZE REPUBLICANS, DEMONIZE REPUBLICANS
Finally, demonize Republicans wherever and whenever you can. Show black folks how Reagan almost destroyed this country: “The Reagan recovery started in official records in November 1982, and lasted 92 months without a recession until July 1990, when the tax increases of the 1990 budget deal killed it. This set a new record for the longest peacetime expansion ever, the previous high in peacetime being 58 months.
“During this seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany, the third-largest in the world at the time, to the U.S. economy. In 1984 alone real economic growth boomed by 6.8%, the highest in 50 years. Nearly 20 million new jobs were created during the recovery, increasing U.S. civilian employment by almost 20%. Unemployment fell to 5.3% by 1989”.
Tell black people Republicans will take us backwards right back to the plantation. They want to make us slaves again as it is common knowledge that all the slave owners before 1865 were Republicans and the abolitionists were all Democrats. Liberal use of the word “racist” can go a long way. Demonize the Tea Party, who can go straight to hell! Demonize George W. Bush. Blame him for EVERYTHING, even for the Civil War and the Black Plague if you have to. Demonize Mitt Romney. Tell people his campaign is a disaster and he is disaster. Tell him that he will continue George W. Bush’s policies like attacking countries that did not attack us, such as Libya. Tell people he is behind Obama in the polls. Tell people the Romney campaign is pleading for cash donations because he trails Obama in donations. Repeat your accusations over and over again because there will be some black people dumb enough to believe them. We must commend Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas who said: “Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to … a segment of the population who does not like to see people other than a white man in the White House or in any other elective position. Let’s be real clear about it — Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like President Barack Obama in any elective or leadership position. We know what’s going on here. And some people may be afraid to say it, but I’m not. … He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody but a white person in a leadership position” . Now there is a proud black sista who has no clue about critical thinking! (And I bet she has nothing to do with integrity either!) We need more irrational thinking black people like her for our most honest and ethical black president to win in November!
Accuse, Accuse, Accuse!
Accuse Romney of being a felon, especially when you have no evidence. Accuse Romney of being deceptive, especially when he is not. Say that an “anonymous source” told you he never paid his taxes, never paid his bills, never learned how to read, never took a shower, never paid a tip, never learned how to drive, never drank Coca-Cola, never went to a dentist, never kissed a girl, never watched Dancing with the Stars, never learned how to swim, never drove a golf cart, never rented a video, never learned Microsoft Office, never went to the dentist, never used a napkin, never downloaded a smartphone app, never shined his shoes, never used a fork, never put the toilet seat down — never did anything important. Everything in Romney’s past is relevant. Black folks will believe any of that based on your say so. Never mind that theWashington Post fact checked one of our Romney ads not to be true. Pay no attention to organizations like FactCheck.org that responded to one of our anti-Romney ads: “We find the Obama campaign’s evidence to be weak or non-existent, and contrary to statements Romney has made on official disclosure forms under pain of federal prosecution… We re-state our conclusion that ‘some of the [Obama] claims… are untrue, and others are thinly supported.’ And we suggest that should Obama campaign officials discover any actual evidence that Romney personally participated in any management decisions at Bain after February of 1999, they should produce it to a federal prosecutor.” Let’s just declare FactCheck.org racist – just cannot stand to have a black man in the Oval Office! And concerning charges of Romney and Bain Capital: “Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post ‘Fact Checker, ‘also arrived at the same conclusion. In fact, even top administrators at Bain Capital that are not only Democrats but major financial donors to Obama have all come forward and stated unequivocally that Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February of 1999 and never engaged in any management activities at the company again ” Well, they are all racists!
You keep running ads like that because if you tell a lie over and over again, it will be regarded to be the truth. You want black folks to believe what you want them to believe, never the real truth. We must refuse to look at the facts.
A Black Man Has The Right To Hide His Past
Demand that Romney disclose all of his records, especially financial records, while we ignore demands for Obama to disclose his any of his records. A black man has the right to hide his past from the public: “My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.
“Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer” .
(By the way, many information technology experts, including one personally known to me, analyzed Obama’s birth certificate file from whitehouse.gov. It is a layered forgery, but you are not to let other people know it is. You are to demonize the analysts as racists. And don’t you get too nosy about the whole thing.)
By the way, famous motion picture actor and director Clint Eastwood recently endorsed Romney. Make my day and accuse Eastwood of being a racist! Every white person who votes for Romney is racist!
Yes, We Still Blame Bush!
Every chance you get you must blame George W. Bush and the Republican Party for the mess we are in today. (And repeat it until you are blue in the face as people will believe what you repeat over and over again.) Black people I talked to did not know what Bush did to mess things up but they say, “He must have done something!” (People not having critical thinking skills is a wonderful thing for us.)
Black commentator Roland Martin wrote: “The time for blaming Bush is over.” I disagree. Whatever has gone great during Obama’s term, we praise our President Obama. Whatever has gone wrong during Obama’s term, we blame Bush. Case closed. Black people will take our word for it sight unseen and not look at Obama’s performance. (You can tell them anything and they will believe you.) Obama must never be blamed for anything, even if it was his fault. We must also maintain that Bush screwed things up so much that Obama is going to need four more years to fix things. After Obama is elected, he can rest easy so it makes no difference if things get better or not. He does not have to work to be elected again. It is perfectly legal for a U.S. president to make promises he cannot keep. And we must refuse to look at the facts.
Integrity is for Losers
Integrity is for losers. We have to re-elect the most honest and ethical president in U.S. history, even if we have to use lies and dirty politics to bamboozle and hoodwink black folks. Even our honest and ethical president said to one of his contributors Professor Steven Rogers of Northwestern University: “Come on, man, you should know better when politicians make promises.” Roger’s replied to our president: “I was furious, and I said, ‘You’re a dirty, rotten mother…’” Well let’s leave that one alone. even though he said, “What you have with Barack Obama is a lack of character” .
To Sum Up
So remember to win over black folks:
Depend upon black people’s emotions instead of logic. Don’t let them rationalize. Tell them that critical thinking is for white folks and Uncle Toms. “Thou shalt shut down thy logical thinking processes for logic doth not elect our beloved Black President. Thou shalt embrace ignorance as thy best friend with benefits. Thou shalt not love black critical thinkers for they shall doom thy chances for a November landslide.”
· Obscure Obama’s true performance for the last 3 ½ years. Keep black folks in the dark and make them think things are better than they really are. Remember — “Let’s not even deal with facts right now. Let’s deal with our blackness and pride — and loyalty.” “Thou shalt make sure that black people are not fully informed. Thou shalt ignore reality and thou shalt not get nosy about details of Obama’s performance for thou mayest not be able to handle the truth. Thou shalt love thy blackness more than thou lovest Jesus, and thou shalt flip the bird unto the Coalition of African American Pastors and unto Artur Davis for they loveth not Obama. Thou shalt not love such jive turkeys.” Forward!
· Demonize Republicans wherever you can and whenever you can because in doing so black people will not look at where we Democrats fall short. Keep them looking in the other direction. And demonize, attack, and declare war on all Obama haters, especially black former Obama supporters who decided to go logical on us. “ Thou shalt boldly accuse our eternal enemies, the Republicans, white and especially black, of every evil under the sun, every chance that thou gettest, especially when thou hast no evidence, world without end. Amen.”
The first and the greatest Obama commandment to make sure our president wins on Election Day is:
“Thou shalt put Barack Obama before thyself, before thy children, before thy principles, and before thy values.”
And when all else fails, blame Bush! And the Tea Party can go straight to hell!
