CBC’s Cleaver Admits: If Obama Wasn’t President, Black Caucus ‘Would Be Marching on the White House’
pajamasmedia.com ^ | Sept 20 2011 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 09/20/2011 9:33:02 AM PDT by NoLibZone

What’s the most obvious difference between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama?

Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).

“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

Rather than march on the man most responsible for the extreme unemployment among Black Americans, the CBC made the strategic decision to target someone else.

Rather than targeting Obama’s leadership, many CBC members aimed their fire at the Tea Party movement over the summer’s congressional recess. Waters said in a public meeting in her district that the Tea Party “can go straight to hell.” Another member, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), called the Tea Party “the real enemy” seeking to hold Congress “hostage.”

How are both of the CBC’s decisions here — to decide not to protest Obama, and then to target the Tea Party for a hate campaign — not explicitly racist? It’s pretty obvious that Cleaver et al aren’t working for a world in which politicians are judged by their character or their actions, but by the color of their skin.

It is interesting to me that he would so easily admit to being a racist...

How’s it feel to be a slave, boy?

Now git back out in that field and pick the master’s cotton before the master sets the overseer on you.

What’s really funny is that these black racists are too dumb to even realize that they are still slaves of the democrat party, and they always have been.

Der der der...

Cleaver and his kind are little more than overseers on the plantation and contrary to popular belief, many if not most overseers were black.

Hey, I thought the same thing. You don’t suppose the CBC is racist do you? They should keep their opinions of the Stainmaker to themselves. Barky is doing everything he can for them and in their best interests. They should just blindly trust him.

To the Black Leftist Caucus ( Who have no Republicans of voice.)

No more hand outs based on race. Keep our nation free, secure our Republic and get a job.Or get the hell out and go back to the dark continent.

Good Read on What the Story is:

After the upcoming tide of Dems deserting Obama (and his policies) in droves soon, this is the only course left for O and his people.

It has been becoming more and more clear that wide spread civil unrest (not just in the big metro area) is the only way the Libs/Communists can hope to retain their power.

He doesn’t have any solutions to the problems we are facing, and he doesn’t even pretend to provide solutions any more. All his speeches and actions speak louder than anything else that he hopes to divide Americans into “us and them”.

Be prepared. And smart people (scratch that, we all) should figure out a way to prevent a 21st century ‘Reichstag fire’ from ever happening here.

In other words, the Black Caucus is prejudiced. They would only picket a non-black person. Bigots!

Called Cleaver’s office to ask if it’s his official policy that we should judge people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character, and I was told these quotes are old and were taken out of context by the media. Yeha, riiiiight!

I would say a great read!

Quoted from article:

Fascism: The Two Birds with One Stone Approach

I think of Obama’s liberal fascism as a cancer that attempts to kill the two birds of American exceptionalism with one stone. It is a deviously appealing Third Way that in the end, if allowed to triumph completely, kills both individual liberty and Judeo/Christian religion with its single stone.

And, indeed this was the precise goal of Adolph Hitler. Unlike the outspoken hatred of private property and religion espoused by communists under Lenin and Stalin, Hitler preferred the more moderate-seeming incremental takeover of private enterprise in the interest of the “common good,” and the slow-death of Judeo/Christian religion by chipping away at it and replacing the people’s dependence upon God gradually with reliance on the state (Hitler).

[Note: Hitler’s Holocaust was based on the Progressive Eugenics principles set forth by Social Darwinist scientists and social engineers of the 1920s, widely accepted both in Europe and in the United States. Religion was not at the core of the Holocaust; race was. However, Hitler’s other chief aim was to destroy the Judeo/Christian religions, which he believed had ruined the Germanic race’s world predominance.]

Of course, as the German people were duped into giving Hitler totalitarian powers to work his magic “change,” he took off the kid gloves and accelerated the program.

In the end, however slow the process, however seemingly benign the growth of the state may seem, liberal fascism has the same result of all tyrannies before it: hell on earth for most and a self-indulgent feast for the Statists in power.

As Barack Obama speaks, thinking Americans ought to hear the echoes of past fascist demagogues and remember. Remember.

LMAO

I searched as follows:

“CBC’s Cleaver Admits: If Obama Wasn’t President, Black Caucus ‘Would Be Marching on the White House”

Then

“If Obama Wasn’t President”

The Admins can verify that I searched prior to posting this and use the history to fix the search feature here.

Must be that all of the previous threads posers searches didn’t work either.

There is something wrong with the Free Republic search function.

Less is more.

One keyword from the headline is usually plenty. Try a search using only the word “marching”.

Yes, this artiucle you quoted is about the best summary of what Obama and his regime is about: The destruction of our Republic. I have it in my tag line and I spread it far and wide. I hope you do too.
