WaPo Finds Blacks Demanding Racial (Racist?) Unity Behind Obama
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tim-graham/2011/10/18/wapo-finds-blacks-demanding-racial-racist-unity-behind-obama ^

Posted on 10/18/2011 8:52:18 AM PDT by chessplayer

The front page of The Washington Post carried a story Tuesday on black liberals demanding all blacks stand with President Obama -- just because he's black.

“Let's not even deal with the facts right now. Let’s deal with just our blackness and pride — and loyalty,” [radio host Tom] Joyner wrote on his BlackAmericaWeb.com blog. “We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black man.”

Following their logic, they should all rally behind Cain because he’s blacker.

Think about it...

...Would a real black man choose Joe Biden to be Vice President?

I actually thought this was John’s semi-satire (courtesy ping, John). Truth is stranger (and uglier) than fiction.

So does that mean all whites should rally in unity around Santorum, Perry, Romney, etc., because they are white?

When your tribal self-identification is more important than your Americanism, you need to find another country in which to reside.

Imagine a radio host saying we should ignore everything else and just vote for the white candidate.

I can’t imagine the furor.

Listen, folks, Tom Joyner like all the Black racists are in utter panic over the Herman Cain quest to become the Republican POTUS nominee!!! The Black, Democrat, Liberal, Racist ilk are terrified that American Blacks in large numbers will leave the Economic, Opportunity, Slave Plantation created and sustained by POTUS Obama, the Democrat Party, the CBC, the NAACP, etc. And......they will!!! End of story!!! End of Liberal, Democrat, Black Racist Slavery.

Biden says Obama is clean and articulate.

Reid says Obama is better because he's light-skinned and only has a negro dialect when "he wants to have one".

Dems thinks the light-skinned black version is better. Cain doesn't qualify.

I think Cain will get a lot more than 30% of the black vote. They are totally disappointed in Obama.

What in Hell’s Bells are these people talking about?

Do they not realize that blacks are the only race in America that gives 90% of its vote to ONE political party, decade after decade?

When an ENTIRE RACE gives almost its ENTIRE VOTE to ONE political party — thus demonstrating almost ZERO DIVERSITY of political thought — that’s a problem.

That’s not normal. Or healthy. And, more importantly, that result is simply NOT POSSIBLE if people are thinking for themselves, educating themselves on the issues, and reaching their own conclusions.

Ths is exactly what Herman Cain was talking about when he said many blacks are “brainwashed.” Or subject to fearmongering. How else do you explain this? NO race “thinks” in lockstep like this naturally.

Blacks in America will not truly be free as individuals until they countenance political diversity among blacks. So long as they, as these people in the article have done, seek to put social pressure on an ENTIRE RACE TO THINK AND ACT LIKE ROBOTS, what can be said?

Fortunately, more and more people are waking up to the fact that they are free to think for themselves, if they’ll just realize they can walk away from the fearmongers and locksteppers.

I see you are not talking at all about loyalty to country, Mr. Joyner.

Country be damned, let it go off the cliff. Vote for the dangerous bumbler in the White House because of the color of his skin.

What a pathetic hoax.

Their logic is mind boggling:

It is racist to not vote for Obama based on the color of his skin and the small percentage of his negroid DNA.

Going around:

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove that you’re not a racist, vote for someone else in 2012 to prove that you’re not an idiot.

We have the chance to re-elect the first African-American president, and that’s what we ought to be doing. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to say that as black people, we should do it because he’s a black

LIE. They could support Herman Cain. Why support the party who fought Lincoln, fought against civil rights, and right now keeps the blacks trapped in inner city cages, failing schools, welfare, and voting democrat to get their monthly brick of government cheese?
Why not support vouchers, jobs, character rather than skin color, and an open door for all those who want to walk through it into a better life?

They need to wake up and think for themselves. The race baiters are making a nice living off their obedience, while they're still being forced to live in squallier so their democrat vote is guaranteed.

I wonder if they ever ask themselves what the democrat party has actually done FOR them. It's obvious what the democrat party has done TO them!

I wonder if any blacks have ever, say, booed a black quarterback who’s stinking up the joint and trashing their team’s chances in the NFL?

Or would that be a violation of tribal loyalty?

Do they just keep supporting the horrible QB while he runs their team into the ground or do they join the chant to bench him?

Oh, but that’s the NFL. Much more important than making sure our country “wins.” /s

These people are making fools of themselves and their arguments are deeply insulting.

1) Does Tom Joyner encourage blacks to buy Dr Thomas Sowell’s books out of racial pride???

2) Does Tom Joyner ask blacks to read Walter Williams columns due to Mr Williams ‘blackness’???

3) Will Tom Joyner demand that blacks vote for Michael Williams (Texas) or Allen West due to their color???

4) Does Tom Joyner live in Anacostia(DC) because he believes in racial solidarity or does he reside in Potomac Maryland with the rest of the wealthy???

5) Is Tom Joyner afraid to walk down MLK Blvd( without bodyguards) in the middle of the night??

Hell NO!

Mr. Joyner is one of the DNC’s “House Negros” and Herman Cain is an escaped slave. Race-traitors like Mr. Joyner need to keep the field hands on the plantation, or he’s going to have to tend the fields hisself.

I missed that. And I’m sorta glad I did.

You know, this goes beyond the Stockholm Syndrome. Some of these people are not just in love with their political captors, they actually want to defend their chains to the death.

Hey, if the plantation gate is open and you don’t want to walk out, suit yourself. But heckling those who do just gets a little weird.

“Vote skin color? What about the content of their character?”

Nearly all Blacks would not subscribe to what Martin Luther KIng taught. Just take a look at districts represented by Blacks. They have, and continue to elect slime balls “solely because of their skin color.” Example” When Adam Clayton Powell headed back to Bimni, “his people” elected Charlie Rangel. Both were/are crooks of the highest order, but you get the feeling that the constituency actually likes that fact. Somehow they like that their “elected officials” are getting over on whitey.

OTOH, thinking of politics in terms of ‘the black community” is part of the problem.

We need to get to the point where we realize and accept that we’re all in this together. That it is what is good for the country as whole that ends up being good for us.

Herman Cain would not be focused on doing “for” the “black community,” I don’t think. He’s focused on getting blacks who are willing to to get in the big boat that we’re all in and start rowing with the rest of us — thereby also reaping the benefits the accrue to our entire nation when we have pro-growth policies.

About the Film “The Runaway Slave Movie”

http://www.runawayslavemovie.com/site/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=126&Itemid=427

The makers of the breakout movie “Tea Party: The Documentary Film” explore the phenomenon of Black Conservatives in their new film Runaway Slave.

Runaway Slave is a new documentary that exposes the economic slavery of the Black community to the Progressive policies of the US government and how Black Conservatives are leading the fight so all Americans can be “free at last.”

Runaway Slave follows, C.L. Bryant, former NAACP Chapter President and self-professed “Democratic radical” turned pastor, political activist and Black Conservative. As a first-hand witness of the civil rights movement and a member of an interracial family; C.L. provides unique insight into an issue that is rarely black and white.

Today, groups such as the NAACP and other civil rights leaders are peddling the Black community to the lowest bidders. “There is a 50-year old lie that has caused an entire people to become harlots to the political idea that government knows what is best,” C.L. Bryant. Are today’s civil rights leaders merely the overseers of today’s Progressive plantations?

Many have found power and even wealth in their victimhood gig. And for some, they live a comfortable, ignorant and slothful life, but have everything they want or need, just by playing the role of perpetual victim.

I think that you are and I would like for you to be right. But I listen to the Jesse Peterson Radio Show at every opportunity and obama support from the callers is strong,not as many as there used to be but still strong. The obama supporters have been throughly indoctrined as to Democrat Party propganda.
