The "Obama Phone" Lady vs. Angry White Men with Guns
Salon ^ | October 2, 2012

Posted on 10/03/2012 8:00:57 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

..............In the Right-wing's dreamworld, the Obama Phone Lady is a "surplus" person with no place in an Ayn Rand fantasy, what is the Tea Party GOP's dystopian soon-to-be made true reality.

Culture is also transmitted through historical memory.

The white gun shop owner who believes that Obama is a socialist usurper represents a type ofwhiteness that is not benign. While white folks imagine themselves through the lens of white privilege (where they are kind, innocent, and good). For others, Whiteness (and by implication, white people) has been a harbinger of violence, death, destruction, and exclusion. White men with guns who are drunk on white racial resentment, and deeply proud of a gun culture that helped to do the work of both formal white supremacy, as well as Jim and Jane Crow, have historically been sources of deep anxiety for communities of color in the United States. White authority understood the power of guns and worked systematically to deny African Americans, and others, the right and privilege of gun ownership. The latter would allow us the ability to resist the regime of white terror that was the norm for most of United States history.

For example, the systematic disarmament of black men in this country after the Civil War was designed to make the African-American community especially vulnerable to white mob violence, racial pogroms, and ethnic cleansing. Even allowing for that fact, we resisted wherever and whenever possible........

It would seem that Whiteness is always innocent--especially when it is caring a semi-automatic rifle. By contrast, blackness (and black people) is always a threat--even more so when holding a "free" cell phone.

D.C. fought tooth and nail to deny inner city blacks (whites, Asians, you name it) the right to bear arms. They make citizens jump through hoops to have a gun for protection.

And of course it’s not mentioned what political party led the charge for civil disarmament of non-whites.

I’ll give Salon one hint: there’s a black one in the White Hut as we speak.

That she is black, female, and poor represents a combination of attributes which are uniquely despised by white conservatives because of their addiction to symbolic racism, and a deep investment in the white racial frame.

Stupid ass liberals are obsessed with this false idea. We don't care what color she is - but they do.

The fact that someone could call that howling, screeching, uncouth, half-savage semi-retarded imbecile a “lady”, and proceed to attack white people, makes me fear for the future of my country.

Hilarious. One myth is disputed by invoking...another myth.

But hang on. Mythic black welfare queen? Isn't this column about the video in which such a living creature actually appears and proudly states her credentials?

It's not what the person is carrying which concerns us, it's how s/he obtained it.
Someone bragging about how it was obtained from others via abuse of the police power of the state indicates the person has a history of social violence and interest in continuing such sociopathic behavior - hence the reason the other is, at his own cost and thru no harm to others, armed.

I find little more amusing than conceited, pseudo-intellectuals, myopically presenting their rationale for showing contempt of white anxiety over black culture while assuming the validity of black anxiety over white culture.

In my dream world Great Leader's phone lady might get a little assistance for a land line, if she could prove she has been looking for work. Cell phones are not necessary and workers should not be forced to pay for non-workers to have not necessary material goods, especially those that come with a monthly charge.

On a side note, Great Leader's phone lady doesn't look to have missed many meals lately. I'd say she's being taken care of.

The NRA has been in the lead in assisting African Americans, and other ethnicity's with gun ownership and training for over 130 years.

Oh, it's Salon, they hate the NRA. Don't want to give any praise to the enemy.

Democratic Party of Illinois declares war on gun owners! Vows ban on America’s favorite rifle.

October 2, 2012

What would you say to a group of politicians who wanted to ban America’s favorite pastime, baseball? But what if they claimed it was dangerous?

You would think they were pretty out of touch, wouldn’t you? And you would be absolutely right.

Well, the Democratic Party of Illinois (DPI) has declared war on everyday, law-abiding gun owners in Illinois along with America’s favorite rifle, the ubiquitous and versatile homeland defense rifle known to many as the AR-15.

The Democratic Party of Illinois proudly wears the “DEMOCRATS: The Party of Gun Control” label in a series of mailings sent by the DPI as part of a coordinated attack on law-abiding gun owners in Illinois.

Stephanie Kifowit wants to distract prospective constituents from her party’s support of a 67% increase in the income tax rate in Illinois, the abolition of the death penalty and our state’s terrible deficit spending and instead create a strawman in the form of America’s favorite rifle. Shame on her and shame on the Democratic Party of Illinois for their war on gun owners.

The mailings suggest that owners of America’s favorite rifle are a bad hair day from shooting up their towns and cities and are a danger to their families, neighbors and communities. Of course, the Democratic candidates are our only defense to bloodletting in our schools and on our streets with their promises to support more bans on repeating rifles and full capacity magazines.

Who runs the Democratic Party of Illinois?

Michael Madigan, the Illinois House Speaker and the chairman of the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Why don’t we have right-to-carry in Illinois?

Michael Madigan and the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Who has sent out these flyers in a host of Illinois districts?

Michael Madigan’s Democratic Party of Illinois.

Oh yeah, who gave us the 67% increase in personal income taxes back in 2010?

Michael Madigan and the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Who has given us this state’s horrendous deficit spending this last decade plus?

Michael Madigan and the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Who gave us the repeal of the death penalty in Illinois?

Stephanie Kifowit: “My party supports raising your income taxes 67%”. And banning America’s favorite rifle.

Michael Madigan and the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Who has given us onerous fee increases, tax increases and other onerous financial burdens these last four years?

Michael Madigan and the Democratic Party of Illinois.

Are you seeing a pattern here?

It’s quizzical that the obese are considered “healthy.” When I see Obama’s phone woman, I see an uneducated blubbering mass of illiteracy and a poster-child for the type of people who vote for liberal Democrats.

There's simply no common ground with people disturbed enough to think the way this writer does. All beliefs are not equal, and this guy is so implacably dishonest with himself and objective reality the only first response is to create distance between ourselves and this person.

I picture a person well-manicured and expensively dressed but burdened with a mind as soiled as any neglected, homeless mental patient wandering around any large city talking to himself as he browses dumpsters.

These are the last thoughts of an abandoned animal in a poorly-funded shelter. It's just plain sad.

I arrived at this thread right after reading an article on Liberal Self-Hating Whites on another web site. Either this is a huge coincidence or this serious mental disease of the Left is rapidly growing.

So, Salon admits that honoring the 2nd Amendment is necessary for self-protection by the citizenry.

Very well put.

They exhibit the same myopia when denouncing anti-islamic sentiments right in the middle of one of their anti-Christian rants.

Whenever I see “Salon” my mind transposes letters and I see “No Sale”... anything they’re selling, I’m not buying.

I don’t really care too much anymore how the left sees us. If this is a battle, and what they’re afraid of is gun toting racist homophobes with Bibles in their hands, from now on I consider whatever keeps the enemy awake at night is a plus, convicting them of the truth is a fool’s game at this point. I can see where an advantage could be taken from encouraging those fears at a strategic moment, causing them to overreact and look like the fools themselves, if a snake puts out its head it’s a great opportunity to cut it off.

When the Spartans at Thermopylae faced wave after wave of attack from the overwhelming Persians, they used the pauses between attacks to get their gear in order and to shine their armor, because looking in perfect battle order was a point of pride. But when the fight was at its worst, and they knew the end was drawing near, they began purposely festooning themselves with gore and draping intestines and offal over their shields, and posing the bodies of the slain in grotesque and mocking positions, so that the next wave of Persians upon entering the battle zone, would think that they were entering a scene from Hell, and that the Spartans were the demons who ruled it.

Phobos, the fear, was an enemy to the Spartans, but it was also a tool and a weapon. There’s a time for the armor to shine, there’s also what time to show the enemy what he’s most afraid of, long enough to make him miscalculate his step, and seize the advantage.

Similar to basic judo theory. Push the way he expects, aid his counter push with a pull, a twist of the hip for a launching ramp and fly him into the wall.

You can apply this strategy to the war of public opinion too. For instance, if a memo was leaked that purportedly showed that conservatives were trying to end the MLK holiday, you can imagine the reactions and the protests. Push the way their fears have taught them we will push, so that they fully commit to the counter push...the pull comes when you release evidence that the memo was planted by the Dems, media appearances and the work of conservative commentators can apply the twist of the hip to achieve maximum altitude and distance.

Just a few thoughts...

A land line is of ZERO use to a person who doesn’t have a home to put said land line it. Cell phones ARE cheap not, unless you are insistent on getting the latest and greatest. Virgin mobile, for instance has cheap basic cells for 10-15 buck range that are play as you go. And you don’t need a debit card, you can buy top up cards for a different amount of minutes in a store — public libraries are free, and homeless could set up an account easily and enter their top up card’s number. Simple. I’m sure other companies have similar offers. No one ‘needs’ a camera phone — but just basic access so potential employers can call you and you them.

Yes Paid is the more common spelling and I do not claim to be an expert on spelling nor entomology, but last I checked the American Heritage Dictionary does make such a claim.

payed 2 (pd)
v.
A past tense and a past participle of pay .
