Brazilís Anti-Obama Riots Ignored by Media
Big Journalism ^ | Mar. 20th, 2011 | Susan Swift

Posted on 03/21/2011 8:42:37 AM PDT by george76

A U.S. President beset by angry mobs screaming “Yankee Imperialist Go Home”, exploding Molotov cocktails, rubber bullets, tear gas, riot police.

Hmmm. Could this be why the President “cancelled a public speech he was scheduled to deliver Sunday” in an “historic plaza” in the “heart of Rio de Janeiro?” Well, we may never know from most in the Make-Believe Media. Yahoo News and New York Times are too busy breathlessly praising Obama as the guru of Hoops citing his so-far superb basketball bracket noting that even women’s hoopsters have attracted Obama’s laser-like focus, promoting my new moniker for our Bookie-In-Chief: “Bracket Hoops” Obama.

But cooing over The Guru of Hoops just isn’t enough. The MBM finds itself increasingly acting as traffic cops detouring folks around gory news scenes they don’t want you to see, kinda like 21st Century Clinton bimbo suppression squads.

Sooo,
After his current gig,
Obammy can take up the slack from Jimmy the Greek?
Least he would have a modicum of knowledge in that job as opposed to his current gig.

There was a small anti war demonstration in Memphis yesterday. A group of about ten people were on a street corner saying stop this war and other such drivel. They also had the usual signs protesting US involvement in Lybia. Not one of them had Ø’s name on them. Had this been Bush, Palin, or any other Pub, their name would have been on them. Since Ø sent the missles flying, it looks like it’s just a generic protest. Not one directed at a specific person, namely the Brown Clown. What hypocrites.

At least they were somewhat consistent

There's a church not too far from my house that had many, many "war is not answer" signs and such on the ground that increased in number as the 2008 election became closer.

I didn't realize the war had ended but apparently the "war is not answer" crowd believes it has.

Isn’t a stereotype to claim a black man is ‘The Guru of Hoops’??

THAT’S the kind of change I’VE been hoping for.

I noticed this on a thread at DU. Some of the more principled ones are criticizing O of course, but most of the anti-war threads (at least the other day) are talking about the “evil US”, with no mention of Obama.

And a lot of them think war is ok as long as the UN says it is. A few of them have some constitutional problems, but not a lot.

Do you think the Obamas (including the wife and kids) have some inklings of the anger and anti- crowd?

Or do you think his inner circle have them insulated pretty well, and all he sees/gets are still the fainting populace?

Can we revoke ALL of his passports? To do so, may be a problem. With the number of Social Security numbers zer0 has, one has to believe there are at the very least a dozen or more passports. zer0 is as illegal as they come ... trouble is nobody in Congress has the brass (below) to take on the Chicago mob... imho ... of course ... I pray I am wrong and there is someone out there with a lot of brass, and good aim. Sounds like a job for the Lone Ranger or Sarah.

I just call him "Baracket." Shows what he really cares about, at least when he's not on the golf course.

At least we are in somewhat of an agreement. My apology to you for not being back to your comment sooner. I have a reason for my order, which given another time when I have more time, will expound on. Thank you for the post.

No problem regarding a speedy reply. There are many times I can't get back here for a week or more.

Yes, I have a reason for my order as well. It would be interesting to share our reasons. Perhaps FRmail would be a more appropriate venue? ;*)
