BET Attendees Holler "Obama Or Die!" During Awards Ceremony
Gateway Pundit | June 25, 2008

Posted on 06/25/2008 11:56:46 AM PDT by Fox_Mulder77

Kim Whitley (in the Obama shirt), Flo Rida, Lil Mama, Young Joc and Mc Lyte praise Obama from the red carpet at the Black Entertainment Awards in America. BBC has video of the interviews HERE.

The BET crowd joined together to holler "Obama or Die" (video here) last night at the annual awards show. MyWay reported:

Barack Obama didn't attend the BET Awards, but that didn't stop attendees from talking about him.

"If we all register and vote, we will have the first black president in the history of America," Sean "Diddy" Combs told the crowd Tuesday at the Shrine Auditorium before chanting "Obama or Die" - a declarative remix of his neutral "Vote or Die" motto from the 2004 presidential election, when he attempted to boost the youth vote.

Obama, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, was just a few blocks away at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for a fundraiser with a Hollywood guest list that included supermodels Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and movie stars Samuel L. Jackson and John Malkovich. While Obama didn't make an appearance at the BET Awards - either live or on tape - his presence was felt.

As she picked up her award for best female R&B artist, Alicia Keys told the crowd that it's time for black people to erase the word "can't" from their vocabulary.

"Together we can do anything," she said, playing on the Democrat's "Yes We Can" mantra before shouting: "Obama y'all!" It does make you wonder what the inaugural ball will be like come January.

Hmmmmmm, habitually sullen, chip-on-shoulder non-productive, talentless, in-your-face racists? I’m OK with “die”.

By most measures, Obamative Action is more “white” than “black” anyway.

To the audience chanting, and to Sean Combs:

What are you saying? Are you saying “Vote Obama or else the country will be so bad off that we will all die?

Or are you saying “If you don’t vote Obama, you deserve to die?”

Please clarify.

Pretty funny piece. But then, what do we expect black performers to yell at the TV camera? “We hate Obama?”

Not likely.

Another example of the “I’m famous, therefore, I’m smart” axiom.

There’s probably a degree of truth to that statement.

If Obama loses the election there will probably be riots in places like Watts and such where there will be some deaths and local businesses will be destroyed. And as before, the Korean shop oweners will pull out their full autos to protect their stores. (One of the more impressive things I saw of the Rodney King riots)

“Vote or Die” didn’t endorse a particular candidate. Now the advocacy is explicit. Defund any 501c3 tax cheat that associates with this scampaign.

Perhaps. I live in Thugland...oops...Oakland. Not long ago I was walking on the sidewalk and met a 20-something black man coming toward me. As we passed he turned to me and said “Barack Obama” in a fairly aggressive manner. I don’t think it was his intent to engage me in political discourse.

I think they will riot regardless of whether he wins or loses. I also think that they will not just destroy their own neighborhoods this time and will have help from the anarchists in bringing the chaos to the suburbs and elite urban areas.

Be prepared.

I agree. Win or lose there will be riots in several cities across America. But it wont happen on my block....or at least not for very long.

I disagree, Obama will go out with a Whimper and an astounding defeat, and little skinny Obama will just be another Democrat wuss up on Capital Hill.

I like your version of events better and I hope you are right, but I’m not seeing it that way.

I think Obama will lose, and I think certain portion of major cities will erupt in violence.

I fear for places like Atlanta and Memphis. My neck o' the woods is much safer in this instance - most minorities own their homes, run businesses and generally have a stake in the community not burning to the ground. Most of 'em are also East Asian or Hispanic, too. Neither group seems inclined to go on the warpath for Barack - indeed, I might have to elbow my way to the front to get a shot, if the SHTF.

Oh you can bet on it. Thats the perfect revenge....if Obama doesn’t win, burn down your own grocery store and steel a TV. That’ll show em.

I can picture myself in the future...Nov5th....watching riots in LA.... and thinking to myself..... “Yeah right, I really should have voted for THAT”

“Following a meeting at the Executive Mansion with Negroes from Louisiana who presented him with a petition, Lincoln privately expressed his support for voting rights for Negroes. He preferred to restrict it, however, to ‘the very intelligent’ and Union army veterans.”

I don’t expect much here in Albuquerque either, for the same reasons. Besides if we tried to pull together enough people to riot someone would just say, “Eh, mañana.”

If only they could restrict the vote to the very intelligent and army veterans across the board.

There would be no stopping this nation.

Sadly those horses have left the barn, and only now is it starting to sink in that the America and the Republic given to us by the Founding fathers is lost, and a USSA is just around the corner.
