"This is what we do. Just walkin' the halls all day, baby. F-k class, that s-t's for clowns man. [Laughter from his friends] We don't go to class 'round here. Man, f-k academics. That ain't me, dawg. Academics, we gonna leave that to them nerd-ass mahf-kers. We gon' keep s-t straight hood up in here."
From the HBO documentary, Hard Times at Douglass High
by Sonny Bunch in the Weekly Standard
My son-in-law is an Obot. I'm sorry, that's the kindest thing I can say. A specimen of his thinking is this: He likes Barack Obama because Hillary is just too white.
This is a mid-twenties, delayed adolescent, MTV-impaired, drug-taking, hung-over, well-meaning, ne'er-do-well liberal kid, who is certainly not a racist -- except against his own race, which is just fine by the Left. A white guy sneering at whitey just proves how cool you are. And Barack Obama is his hero because he's black, and Obama's a slick hustler, and well, he's just so cool. Ya know?
I like this kid, but he reminds me of that hiker who just got swatted by an enraged mountain lioness in the California hills, after trying to cuddle her three cute little cubs. Why did he do it, according
to the local CBS TV station? The answer: "I'm a Leo ... I'm a lion, too."
This guy is a guaranteed Obot. Total zombie. There's millions of 'em. They're all going to march into voting booths in November, when they shouldn't even be allowed to cross a busy street without adult supervision. Is this a great electoral system or what?
That's the best explanation for the Obama craze I've seen so far.
So 2008 is the Year of the Obots. If you put my son-in-law behind one blank screen and a Sony Playstation 3 behind another one, you couldn't tell the difference. Their heads are stuffed with New Age superstitions like a grungy old couch. They seem to be deathly afraid of honest ideas and hard facts. I can't see any skepticism, any discussion, any open minds -- just followers following other followers.
I'm just trying to be kind, you understand.
I'm happy to live and let live. If you want to kill off your brain cells be my guest. But it's the Obots who may well tip the next election and along with it the fate of this country, at exactly the moment that the crazies in Pyongyang and Tehran are on the point of getting and maybe using their nukes. There's a national nightmare for you.
But I'm being judgmental. Please forgive. It won't happen again.
Take Jeremiah Wright, who's been spreading the toxic rumor that the CIA has been infecting black people with AIDS
. His church bulletin peddles the official Hamas smear
that Israel is making biological weapons genetically engineered to kill blacks and Arabs and nobody else. Crack cocaine is a conspiracy to keep black folks down. Black-on-black crime is the fault of the Man, or invisible "institutional racism," or 6,000 years of slavery starting with Ur of the Chaldeans.
Now Barack and Michelle Obama are both bright, highly educated people, who've had all the breaks in life. But for twenty years they've sat in Rev. Wright's pews, watching him spread toxic nonsense to liberal blacks and whites, soaking it all up
and solemnly nodding Yes, Yes, Yes.
This is the church whose new pastor teaches
the world that blacks have leprosy
, as far as whites are concerned. That's a paranoid idea, designed to inculcate hatred and self-contempt, and the Obamas are much too slick not to know that. So they're sitting by, week after week, watching sly poisons being spread to gullible people.
Just what we need in the White House, right?
Senator Obama is playing straight to the empty beer cans in his audiences. Who else believes his high-falutin' jive talk? It's the abuse of fools by knaves --- Harvard and Princeton-educated knaves. That's a disgrace to the Democratic Party, which long ago sold out to race and gender demagogues. Just look at the list, from Pelosi to Hillary and Bill, Kerry the Vietnam back-stabber, Algore the Prophet, Murtha, Reid, John Edwards, Jesse Jackson, the whole sorry crew. What a gang! It's the Dixiecats all over again, with Louis Farakhan and the Black Muslims playing Bull Connor and the KKK. Racism is racism. It doesn't get prettier when blacks do it.
O'bots are cannon fodder in the culture wars; like a pirate of the Caribbean, Obama pushes one overboard every now and then pour encourager les autres. (Just google it, kids.) They make a satisfying splash as they're shoved off the plank, and don't think I don't appreciate it every time it happens. It's just that he's going to appoint 2,700 O'bots in the next US Administration if he wins. For me to feel safe, he'd better start pushing a dozen sixpacks overboard every single day.
The Senator tacks with the daily winds and tides. That poses a question: When is Obama lying? Judging by his life story, it all happens on the whim of the moment. In his Audacity
book Obama compared himself
to a Rorschach blot: "I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views." That's a nice way of saying that he's a liar who changes his jive depending on who he's talking to. Then why
didn't the Democrats just stick with Bill and Hillary? The lure of a fresh face? Getting more of the black vote? Reaching out to new generations of Obots?
If Obama is elected President with working Congressional majority, he will be the most socialist President ever. If, by some miracle, the voters elect forty or more GOP Senators he will have to be more like Bill Clinton --- but then his 2,700 Lefties in government will rule like the Europeans, by means of huge, obscure regulations that nobody understands.
The United States will escape that fate only if Obama loses in a landslide, because that will trigger a nasty civil war for the Democrats. Well, you reap what you sow.
So that's our future; and the deciding votes will be millions of Obots.
They call it the "idealistic youth vote."
Feel better now?

Oh how far we've come. Didn't Martin Luther King Jr. demand we judge a man based on the color of his skin, not the content of his character anyway? /sarc

And yet, you let him marry your daughter. The only excuse I can see is that it all happened while you were in a coma for 5 years.

I generally agree that the Obots stand to pose a threat.
But they're mostly all jive-talk. They're incapable of any form of responsibility. And that includes voting. For these fools, voting is just too much work.

Idealistic youth vote...You mean the ones who get good grade in socialist studies and useful idiocy at school?

A white guy sneering at whitey just proves how cool you are. And Barack Obama is his hero because he's black
Obama has written about how he sneers at his white heritage.
Playing racial politics will not heal the divisions in this country.

Yep, that attitude is the road to either welfare or prison or a mixture of both. That is the attitude that Hillary and Obama want "shared prosperity" or "economic fairness" for.

Why am I coerced into supporting these deadbeats?

Obots is somewhat appropriate in its description of these feeble minded Obama idolizers, but I tend to think of them as lemmings.
As you know, lemming suicide is a frequently used metaphor in reference to people who go along unquestioningly with popular opinion, with potentially dangerous or fatal consequences.

Why do you expect a zot? Just curious.

Unless you are into arranged marriages, you can't choose your child's mate. We thought it was just us that was totally frustrated with my stepson's combative liberal wife until we talked to his bio mother and stepdad on Friday. Unfortunately, the DIL is pregnant with hubby's first grandchild, so we have to tolerate her crap or she might keep us from the baby, she thinks the whole world should revolve around her and her family. At least my daughter just married a Texan Baptist Republican Redneck that drives a Chevy truck, LOL!
The first paragraph.
It got better.

(About Obama: "Overinflated balloons pop suddenly and catastrophically." - Bill Dupray)
Yes, you are correct. It is the drug-taking thing specifically to which I refer. I agree yr. points, except future son-in-law’s drug-taking (if the Father knew about it) should have forced Dad to take a stand.
My kids are not at marrying age. I only hope my wife and I have thoroughly taught them to associate with rational, optomistic, moral people.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get involved until my stepson was already a teenager. He was a “momma’s boy”, his mom was semi-liberal and my husband just played along to get along. Yes, drugs would be a big factor for me as well, but raising them right doesn’t always guarantee they will follow the path you want them to. As I found out, forbidding them to see people you don’t approve of sometimes can backfire. My daughter is actually a recovered addict who put me through living hell for years. My trouble with her started when I wouldn’t let her date a 21 year old when she was 14, I even called the police on him when he snuck her out of school one day. She has now turned her life completely around and lives up to the ideals I originally taught her.
