Let's Take This Country Back
The American Thinker ^ | November 10, 2010 | Kevin Jackson

Posted on 11/10/2010 4:25:01 AM PST by Scanian

Though this election was a resounding defeat of white liberals and the policies of Obama, members of the Congressional Black (Progressive and Socialist) Caucus went essentially unscathed. Black people continued to support these government-funded extortionists, despite the destruction these black overseers have wreaked in black neighborhoods. Blacks seem annoyed at the idea that Obama lost ground in the last two years, and the Right is said to be taking the country back.

The Right would argue that they are taking the country back from the socialist policies that have weakened the country. Back to the Constitution.

Blacks argue differently, saying that conservatives want to take black people back to slavery. This may explain why black Democrats continue to allow ineffective and criminal leaders to be their caretakers.

One thing is for sure: Black Democrats love handouts. They know that the Congressional Black Caucus will continue to fight for these handouts, which black Democrats now consider "entitlements." Payback for slavery.

These days anything black Democrats want is considered an entitlement. Gucci purses and 60-inch flat-screen TVs in their taxpayer-funded, government-gifted homes -- all are entitlements.

For black Democrats, the government is supposed to provide food, shelter, clothing, cars (tricked out, of course), cable TV and PlayStations (the in-home babysitters), childcare, health care, and, of course, a check.

What the government does not have to provide to black Democrats are safe schools, crime-free neighborhoods, adequate education, or jobs. The government also doesn't have to provide real hope. False hope is fine, however.

As part of the retaking of our country, we should boot out any RINO who offers any compromises.

Even here on Free Republic, on several occasions, I have posted a mild comment that "life was better in the 1950's" and -- WHAM! -- someone will seriously accuse me of missing the days of old Jim Crow.

Ummmmmmmmm. It's not always about race. I want my country back -- so that all people can benefit.

Since you are of that age (remember the ‘50’s)...think back to some of the things certain preachers and moralists warned us about for getting too liberal about certain social matters.

I can’t think of much they were wrong about.

Glenn Beck had a very interesting show on George Soros last night and will continue the revelation during the next two nights. He is showing how Obama is nothing more that a sock puppet for Soros, who wants to destroy America. Both of these traitors need to be arrested and tried for treason.

We need an insidious, filthy rich rightist to infiltrate everything that influences American society the way Soros does for the left.

Then you might see some balance.

I believe it is a question and also simple fanaticism that makes the left effective. They are totally beyond reason.

Example: the party that Pelosi threw for all the “successes” of the present congress, regardless of a monumental Democrat election loss. They passed their key, socialistic legislation and that’s all that matters to them. Dragging 5 dozen Dhimmi legislators down to defeat? No biggie-—Obamacare trumps all.

I no longer have any sympathy or empathy for black America. To boot, I couldn't care less if they call everyone racists. They have so over-played that card that it is irrelevant and simply a cheap shot. Blacks are into their 3rd and 4th generation of failure and show little interest in fixing the crime rate, dropout rate, out of wedlock births, drugs, etc in their communities.

obama is the absolute worst thing to happen to race relations in this country since slavery. He has forced people to strip away the social justice "Oh I just want to give these people a chance" blinders that most folks have had on and opened their eyes to the damage that has been done.

Back in the fifties the black culture was family oriented with good morals and a good work ethic. 50 years of welfare have turned the black culture into a criminal enterprise where scoring the next hit (or the next ho) and getting the bling is the only important thing. Welfare rules have cuckolded the entire black male race (after all, Uncle Sam can provide for those black babies a whoile lot better than their daddies can. The mom gets extra money for each child without a father in the house so why should the men be daddies when they can just be sperm donors?) and destroyed the black family.

We are now starting our third generation of black males who never had a man in the house. We can no longer call them "men" as they don't have a clue what it means to be a man. No one has ever taught them.

This results in white folk like me seeing every black person as just another welfare leech w/ no ambition to be anything more than that. Those that happen to have college educations got there entirely through affirmative action and can't really be trusted. (Would you go to an affirmative action doctor?). The criminal culture has made every black person a threat to every white person (White on black crime is a hate crime. Black on white crime is never mentioned or extremely downplayed).

I hate that my country has decayed into this.

But on the bright side, although race relations are now, and will continue to be, horrid, people are now awake and will be expecting the black culture to change. It's time for them to start pulling their own weight again. So maybe obama actually did something good (Even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while).

The saddest thing is that the blacks have lost 60 years on their march to freedom. Most of them are more slaves now than they were when they actually wore chains. You can enslave a man's body and yet his mind can still be free. But if you enslave his mind it doesn't matter where his body goes, he is always a slave.

The Dhimmis have discovered the balancing point at which they provide just enough freebies to hold on to dependent ethnic groups and keep ‘em voting “D” forever. Too little: the natives get restless. Too much: maybe they get too big for their britches and get ideas about leaving the plantation.

Add to the carrot on the Dhimmi stick the constant drumbeat in the black churches about such as “The GOP will bring back Jim Crow. They will revive slavery. And they will ABSOLUTELY take away ya’ll’s government checks.” That kind of Jeremiah Wright crud sounds absurd to outsiders but it is being served up by what psychologists call “major authority figures,” some of the only ones to exist in those anarchistic areas.

The GOP should preach the gospel of self-reliance and entrepreneurialism in those places, unadulterated, and not give in to the temptation of me-tooism which never works and is transparently fake. Obvious even to the deluded inhabitants of the slums.

Thus proving that stereotypes about blacks' intelligence have a basis in reality

Gucci purses and 60-inch flat-screen TVs in their taxpayer-funded, government-gifted homes -- all are entitlements.

He left out free cell phones (safelink) and of course free health care including multiple liver transplants (all of which is not free, but paid for by those of us who work for a living rather than sit around all day drunk, high, and engaging in promiscious productive sex with any baby daddy who walks in the door - de mo chillin the bigger the check)

We have squandered billions providing “for” “fill in the blank” disadvantaged / poverty level peoples for the last 5 decades. Until they decide that they want to become introspective about the reasons they have schools full of gangsta’s and ho’s, crime, and no jobs, nothing will change, except that Obama has stolen all the loot, and the endless handouts have come to and end.

Now we are all poor. Ain't socialism grand.

Blame the liberal Democrats. Specifically, LBJ and his ludicrous “Great Society” programs which could not have been more destructive if they included a bad of heroin for people signing up.

Take, for instance, Auburn Ave. in Atlanta. Just a couple of generations ago, it was a beehive of black entrepreneurial activity. Have a look at it now. Practically nothing going on of a private enterprisse nature. Explanation? The libs came through in the ‘60’s on a hunt for votes from newly enfranchised blacks, bringing a slate of giveaway programs with them.

Result? In a very short time, much more crime, addiction, dependency, and squalor. And respect for private business went right up in smoke. Throw in loss of respect for elders and knowledge as well.

I and most people I know have boycotted Hollywood for years. That part I understand and agree with.

I don’t get the part about cutting off cable and satellite TV. Sounds like a First Amendment violation to me.

I thought liberals believe in supression. And conservatives believe in competition.

Definition: Dhimmi (Arabic: ذمي‎ [ˈðɪmːiː]), (collectively أهل الذمة ahl ahl al-dhimmah, "the people of the dhimma or people of the contract") is a non-Muslim subject of a state governed in accordance with sharia law. The dhimma is a theoretical contract based on a widely held Islamic doctrine granting special status to Jewish, Christian, and other non-Muslim subjects. Dhimma provides rights of residence in return for taxes.[1] Dhimmi have fewer legal and social rights than Muslims, but more rights than other non-Muslims.[2] They are excluded from the specifically Muslim duties, and otherwise equal under the laws of property, contract and obligation.

I believe your comment is correct. But I did find one TINY bright spot this morning. Our newly elected congressman from South Carolina, Tim Scott (Black-Tea Party Supported) was asked to join the Black Caucus .... look at his response:

"I grew up in an environment where we were just very much integrated, and life worked out really well," Scott told reporters Tuesday. "I think the best for America is finding a way to fuse all of our communities together and erase all those lines that separate us."

As I said, its "tiny" ... but maybe its a start? (Source CNN)

I am well aware of Dhimmitude’s Muslim meaning...I have a bookcase full of literature about Islam, Muhammad, jihad, etc.

When I apply that term to the Democrats, what I have in mind is precisely the type of behavior being exhibited by Hussein toward Muslim culture during his Asian trip.

I've never liked the term "Take the country back" or "Take Congress back." It ends up being a football game, where each side takes over the ball and the lead jumps back and forth.

What we really need to do is GIVE the country back to the people. Yes, it involves taking control of the machinery, but as we do that, we need to educate the young and remind the adults what this country is about.

Changes we make need to be presented in language that shows how it relates to the Declaration and the Constitution. A lot of people these days have lost touch with our heritage.

If we GIVE the country back by re-establishing the principles upon which it was founded, there will be no way the lefties will be able to "take it back."

This will take time, but we need to realize that we are in an ideal teaching moment in history. "We should not let the current crisis go to waste," to paraphrase some guy in the neighborhood.

There is no denying there is some real trash on there.

Bad stuff to be sure but there is no need to toss the baby out with the bathwater.

But I maintain that we should keep ourselves informed about it and know enough about it to counter it if the subject comes up in our own families and to recognize bizarre, faddish, media-encouraged behavior among “yoots” with whom we might come into contact.

It is optional. Your cable or sat TV bill is divided up among the 6 networks (who have Saudi shareholders or joint ventures with each). Each network gets roughly $5 to 6 a month because each owns about 6 to 10 channels.

It breaks down to $5 to 6 per network. So you are giving Time Warner/CNN or GE/MSNBC/NBC/CNBC $5 to 6 a month which helps keep Obama in power.

Nothing will change in America as long as Tv is a factor. When everything starts imploding then the idiots may start to connect the dot. TV is ALL about propaganda. It also keeps Obama in power.

Black communities do NOT recognize the ‘destruction in the black neighborhoods’. They can only resent Whitey for having something cleaner-safer-in better condition & larger.

They have had 45+++ years of handouts called Welfare—Food Stamps—Section 8 housing—WIC—Head Start—Free meals at school—you name it. It has been a sop of a handout to the black community. They keep voting for those handouts to continue. To do otherwise would mean they would actually have to WORK to support themselves.

They truly do not know anything different, & since they are the PAUL part of robbing Peter to pay PAUL, they have absolutely no incentive to change their behavior & to change their voting tactics.

Parasites will always vote to continue handouts to themselves. They don’t know what it is to be a PRODUCER.

To put is very simply:

THEY HAVE NO SKIN IN THE GAME.

I made this image as a composite of images I found of the President to illustrate the phrase "take our country back" was in use by the other side before it became linked to the Tea Party movement. An interesting observation - before I made this composite image, I had posted the individual images on ImageShack. Then I made the composite and posted it on ImageShack as well. Looking back through my posting history here on FR, I notice that the individual images are still showing up, but the composite image is missing (I just re-hosted it). That means someone didn't like it and asked ImageShack to remove it. I wonder why???

To be fair - there are plenty of whites who are addicted to the handouts too. Maybe we can just call them all useful idiots - or Dems for short.
I still say anyone who accepts ANY government hand-out should forfeit their right to vote until they are self-sufficient again. Some will try to spin that as “racist”, but I don’t look at the color of the leech - I just want to stop all of them from voting for endless raises from my pocket.

I understand...a buddy and I got busted during some “civil unrest” in ‘67 for trying to score some looted booze as underage punks. Got thrown in the can and held 3 days incommunicato.

I can’t say we weren’t thoroughly deserving of the rough treatment but it was pretty scary. Funny, prowling ghetto streets looking for liquor didn’t seem nearly as scary, for some reason.
