Posted on 06/16/2012 12:35:18 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
First the LGBT lobby extracted an about face from Obama on marriage equality, moving him to declare his support for same sex marriage. Then today, Obama responded to the needs of the Latino community by allowing students in the U.S. who are already in deportation proceedings, or those who qualify for the DREAM Act, to remain in America without threat of deportation.
This means that President Obama just instated the Dream Act, at the behest of the Latino community, all by himself.
If youre black and you dont feel stupid, then you havent been paying attention. And many pundits, commentators, and activists obviously hadnt been paying attention, at least not until recently.
In a series of tweets, CNNs Roland S. Martin finally came around to the view Ive held for months, and noted the following:
No sh*t Sherlock. Problem is, its too little too late. Its hard, damn near impossible, to renegotiate a win in the ninth inning. The time to make the accountability argument wouldve been around early 2010, which just happens to have been around the time I began lighting a fire under of black people to wholeheartedly engage Obama on a black agenda. But when I made the case, all I heard was a bunch of nonsense about how I was a hater and how Obama was gonna hook black people up eventually. Suckers.
Roland Martin had, in his role as CNN commentator (not to be confused with unbiased journalist), a lot of flexibility to ebb that flow of messianic nonsense. He didnt. He was an apologist for the administration. And so wasVan Jones, who also, as of late, has been ratcheting up his criticisms of Obama.
As Obama continues to hang black people out to dry, a lot of people are going to jump on the *accountability* bandwagon. All I want is for you to remember who was sounding the alarm when it mattered and who wasnt.
One of my favorite things to say!!!
I used to really like his fishing show.
“.....Van Jones, who also, as of late, has been ratcheting up his criticisms of Obama. “
Zero just gave a cool 2 million of our money to a Van Jones-connected solar company. No critism any more.
He’ll get 95% of the Black vote but not the same number of Black votes. The reason: The new has worn off and he has NOT produced for the brothas like they thought he would. So, they’ll stay home. 16.5 million Blacks voted in ‘08. I predict that in 2012 it will be 15 million.
Did Roland just figure out that his affirmative action job might be given to a newly-legalized illegal alien? Roland is dumber than Juan Williams, and that’s saying something. He’s bordering on Al Sharpton dumb.
Just an observation: in spite of all the problems we read about with various minority groups, blacks still don’t get the message that they have to be responsible for their own lives and can’t sit around waiting on reparations. Hispanics have been here as long as blacks, yet they own businesses and Hollywood bends over backwards to reach them through media and sports channels. All blacks have is BET. The Vietnamese boat people came here with nothing and in a generation they became doctors, scientists and engineers. Blacks still miss the boat and now Obama is moving on without them. How will the blacks react this time around?
He got a good tan with all that fishing.....
Roland Martin: From fawning buttwipe to critic in only four insufferable years!
I'm waiting to see what Bill Dance has to say.
I used to like his "Laugh-In" show.
Roland and Martin were great on Laugh-In too!
SOCK IT TO ME BAMMY!!
He’s not really one of them. If you believe his story, he’s a child of Marxist/Islamist Africa, not the United States and the people who were once slaves here.
(great minds think 21 seconds apart!)
Mostly I agree with you but, there is some reason for hope.
This morning I attended my oldest daughter’s Commencement exercises from a community college.
The number of black men and women in the class was impressive, as were the significant number who had earned honors and high honors. Their families were also there to give them plenty of vocal encouragement.
It was a joy to see.
Those guys always had wisdom to impart.
"The decision by black leadership to choose to be publicly silent out of black allegiance the last 3 years means you negate your influence"
Yes, there is hope out there. There are plenty of middle class black families in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs, where I grew up, although they are wedded to the democrat party. I’m glad you were able to celebrate your daughter’s achievement. Congrats to you both!
The group of Black Skittle heads that were so stupid as to help put that bastard in office the first time, will try to do it all over again. You can’t fix stupid....
As for Roland Martin..... good for him, but I still don’t trust him any farther than I can throw my house.
Does this mean Roland Martin will not be voting for Obama to hold him accountable? I don’t think so.
.... He says as he frantically, again, pulls the lever for Obama, screama his name aloud and trn smokes a Newport to “come down”
“I used to really like his fishing show.”
Especially his “Blooper” shows! Oh! Wait,,,,,,,.......
Always have to jump in and say hi when I see your posts,RR. I pray that all is well in your world.
Yes, ma’am! I am doing well. I pray you are the same?
I thought they had a show back in the 60’s called Laugh In?
Dang, I had a feeling I should have read through the post. 9 out of 10 times someone is on the same wave length as myself.
Otherwise, this guy Martin would probably make out with Obama’s dog if his O’liness ask him.
Pretty soon one of these black folks is going to forget where they are and let loose with the "High Yella Ain't Black" boogie.Then a loud, obscene, argument about just what "High Yella" means will ensue during all six of the commercials they cut away to in order to try and regain control of what they're broadcasting. If they go back to the show and no one is bleeding you can bet the argument is just on the back burner until after the show.
There is nothing white normal people can do about the nose diving condition of some of the Black race who have embraced amoral liberalism and handouts for the tribe. It is a way of life that is the opposite of Western civilization. It is Western civilization turned up-side-down.
White normal people have lost quite a few of their own tribe to the same mentality. All suffer from it because the darkness of leftist ideology and and it’s aggressive and deadly amoral humanist philosphy. It is really a religion of darkness with liberals serving as aggressive and punitive missionaries.
The consequences are denied through rules of political correctness which makes the truth a crime and converts young people to the ideology/religion when they don’t have the information they need to the contrary.
Everyone has to chose, no matter the color of their skin.
The thing that matters is not how much of the black vote he gets, but how enthused the black machine is about producing lots of fraudulent votes. It's a lot of work getting in the vans, going from polling place to polling place.
Plus more states have Voter ID laws in place.
We need to get more states with Voter ID, as a primary priority.
The role of Satan, and his followers, is to tempt man away from God.
“Just an observation: in spite of all the problems we read about with various minority groups, blacks still dont get the message that they have to be responsible for their own lives and cant sit around waiting on reparations.”
During Sherman’s march through the south, slaves would attach themselves to the rear of Sherman’s columns. They expected food, clothing and shelter. The slaves were a real drag on Sherman’s manuevers. He not only had to forage for food for his troops, he also had to find additional stores for the slaves.
He would tell his commanders to drop the slaves off in towns they passed through. It was explained to them that they needed to hire themselves out as laborers so they could be paid and buy food and shelter for themselves. For many, this concept completely flew over their heads. They expected to sit back and allow the “master” to provide sustenance for them.
Some blacks are still at the rear of Sherman’s columns looking for free stuff. It’s been over 150 years. Time for the slaves to get a job or start a business.
Well, if people had left them alone in Africa, we wouldn’t have this problem, would we?
“Did Roland just figure out that his affirmative action job might be given to a newly-legalized illegal alien?”
That’s already happened to millions of blacks with college admissions, jobs, and promotions; Hispanic immigration (legal or otherwise) has a disproportionate impact on blacks economically. Martin is probably realizing that his people are consigned to irrelevance by the Hispanics imported to replace them.
Whites are sharing another common fate of American blacks; their birthrate is falling (dramatically). Every projection of demographic shift kicks the can several decades down the road, despite the fact that anyone who has seen a schoolyard can see it is happening much more quickly than the media would ever let us know.
The Union generals wanted to know what Lincoln planned to do with the freed slaves after the war.
150 years later we still don’t have an answer (though they were more “independent” between the end of the war and Johnson’s “Great Society” 100 years later); there is no moral defense for Jim Crow or the other indignities following the Civil War, but blacks fended for themselves as adults.
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.
(1809-1865) 16th US President
Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, September 18, 1858
(The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146.)
Lincoln’s feelings towards blacks are why they don’t hold him in high regard (as they do John Brown, who really put his money where his mouth was).
Yep, doing fine RR.
So you have lazy losers having babies, providng no guidance, morals, values, everyday responsibility for seeing that their kids do the right thing, no need for marriage cause that means leading a more organized and purposeful life, and that's just work and not in their plans. And the working taxpayers foot the bill.
You have reverends in store front churches preaching nothing of any value or guidance to their flocks, and in Chicago, laundering the money of these well-known street gangs, for a cut of the profits. Instead of preaching a sure-fire set of rules of the road on how to conduct oneself in a civil society, call The Ten Commandments, these revruns do nothing but maybe march in the streets to protest the “removal of guns”, as if guns pull their own trigger and kill, and the thugs holding the guns have nothing to do with it. And they NEVER reprimand the parent/parents, speak out against the immoral lifestyle BY CHOICE of these people..they are useless and only want face time on TV. And so the feral animals roam and thug, kill and live like sewer rats..by choice.
Cops say that these people will either die in the streets or rot in jails. There is no hope for these outlaws and it is their choices that put them where they are. To the men and women who understand that it first begins with a plan of action for the course you will take in life, then education, a job, marriage, and then children, in that order, who understand that they are responsible for themselves, that they must work for what they want, that no one promises you a free ride, (except the democratic/socialists/communists/marxists), that there are rules that govern a civil society, success is a goal.
These are the men and women who assimilate with the culture of our country, who think before they act, have impulse control...everything the feral street thug refuses to do. These men and women take advantage of the educational opportunities, the training programs, etc. offered to them. They know that they can't just “dream” and think that they can be anything they want to be...it takes a PLAN and EDUCATION FIRST, and that there is more to life than rap music and sports as a business goal. They send their kids to charter schools, private schools, and are willing to work for the tuition to insure their kids have a chance to learn, in an otherwise lawless neighborhood, where schools have to have police monitoring the halls from morning to dismissal time each day..nothing but fights, shootings, mayham each day. You can hear all about it on police calls each day. And in the wealthy neighborhoods of Chicago, the tourist areas of Michigan Avenue, the downtown area, these thugs now have a new game of riding the EL in large numbers, roaming Michigan Avenue, robbing tourists and shoppers of their money, phones, computers, battering them, running into high end stores and grabbing all that they can carry, while shoppers fear for their safety, their lives, because it is exclusively black on white hate crime..no whites are committing these crimes...listen to police calls.
And at night, it's best not to be out in any of the black neighborhoods, (or tourist/entertainment areas in white neighborhoods) ‘cause the number of home invasions (gotta stay home sometime), robberies, batteries, domestics (constant calls from women who have been beaten by their “baby daddies”..must be lovin’ the drama to live this lifestyle), calls of “shots fired” are too numerous to mention day and night, reports of thugs running down streets checking car doors and possible loot in cars, shooting people on streets for gang street cred, burglarizing businesses that are open at night. And the police dispatchers work from a back log nightly...Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, won't kick in for more officers, radios that work, cars that run, ‘cause the revruns demand more services for their people, and, of course, Rahm has to work deals with the money to benefit his party and himself, and so no additional police and no equipment that works. Cops’ hands are tied and they can't do the police work they were trained to do, ‘cause Rahm needs the black vote, and so the police can't do their job, for fear the revruns and the leftist do-gooders will complain and hold their vote for the democratic/socialists/marxists. And the courts either refuse to jail these thugs, or they're let out with minimal sentences, and out the door they go to continue where they left off.
Corruption, greed, deep-seated democratic/socialist/communist/marxist plantation cradle to grave mentality in Chicago, all for the vote, and they know the blacks will fall for it, ‘cause it's easy.
Can't save those who fight against being saved. These will be the casualties of the war we are fighting. So be it. Black folks must clean up their race and the depths to which they have morally fallen, a ship without a compass. Or all will be lost..for them.
A lot of black people are upset that they aren’t the government’s chosen minority anymore.
>Lincolns feelings towards blacks are why they dont hold him in high regard (as they do John Brown, who really put his money where his mouth was).
LOL!!! Please ask the first 30 city denizens who John Brown was. - Then tell us in what regard they hold him...
Don't doubt his messiahship. He turned 40 acres and a mule into, 40 oz and a Marlborough.
How about granting all the illegals the right to remain here openly.
That will really help the 50% black “yoot” unemployment rate.
