Ryan Bomberger: More Black Americans Calling for Obama to 'Get Out!'
Catholic.org ^ | July 14, 2012

Posted on 07/14/2012 7:05:04 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

ATLANTA, GA - A bold and original animated music video, calling for President Obama to "GET OUT", was released this week by nationally known speaker and Emmy Award-winning Creative Director, Ryan Bomberger. The 2 minute long video, complete with a jingle that's infectious, adds a creative punch and dares to call out the President's failures on a wide range of issues.

"I'm as black as Obama, and I'm tired of any legitimate criticism of the President's policies reduced to lazy and ludicrous charges of racism. Obama and the Democrats have been promising a whole lot of hope and change but, instead, have delivered higher unemployment, higher poverty rates and millions more welfare enrollees while aggressively promoting abortion in the black community," Bomberger explains.

"Unemployment among Blacks was 12.7% when Obama took office. It spiked at 16.7% last August and remains at 14.4% today. Abortion, which has cultivated a culture of abandonment, occurs up to 6 times more in the black community than in the majority population. Yet, President Obama persistently promotes Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion chain, which claims that 'abortion and food stamps elevate the black community'."

"There is a profound lack of command of history that enables the black community to be so easily swayed by a political party that desperately depends on revising its own history," says Bomberger. "The Democrats -- the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, anti-women's suffrage movement, the KKK, abortion, and generational welfare--is also the party that hopes to change our liberties through its abuse of the Constitution. This video just says out loud what many others are feeling."

Yes indeed, I predict in November massive numbers of Black Americans will not vote for Obama. Instead of the 95% or 96% he got in 2008, this time he’ll only get 93% or 94%.

Great stuff, but don’t expect to see it on BET or any TV station on either coast where it could do the most good.

Besides, when you can count on 105% of the vote in Chicago, who cares if you lose a few useful idiots here and there.

The blacks vote for odumbi regardless of the facts that....
1. They lose jobs because of this socialist ideals
2. Abortion kills their children
3. The Attorney General pushes Illegal Mexican labor ahead of blacks
4. The same Attorney General does nothing to stop black on black violence that kills more of their children

odumbi could come out of his gay walk-in closet and be found guilty of the murder of Donald Young and the blacks would STILL ONLY VOTE FOR HIM........and you know what> Serves them right.....or as that famous Chicago Preacher said...’chickens coming home to roost”.

There has been a long campaign to manufacture black people so dependent and so uneducated that they are unable now to see that they will receive the handouts only so long as the forced debiting of working people continues, and that the coming collapse they have enabled by blindly voting in the democrat oligarchs is about to end their handouts and they will be reduced to the next use the oligarchs have for them as fodder int he death and disease transformational wave that is scheduled to sweep across the dead Republic preparing for the new world order in which these same dupes will be not even remembered as their carcasses are disposed of and the welfare handouts no longer encessary or useful.

O I don't know. He might turn up 5-6% more dead Black Americans. Or those who do vote for him will just have to start earlier and hit more precincts. Then again, absentee ballots have to be issued to those 20 million (virtual) African-Americans who coincidentally turned 18 on October 30.

I am not worried.

Obama’s Presidency may be the high water mark of Democrat/black politics. If the GOP could garner what Eisenhower got, some 35% or so of the black vote, it would transform urban life.

Can you imagine the top 3-5 cities in the nation under a series of GOP mayors and legislatures? Rudy did wonders in NY and his hands were tied nearly the entire time.

Imagine the engine of growth those cities would become as unproductive labor and backward regulatory and tax policies were done away with.

“Abortion, which has cultivated a culture of abandonment, occurs up to 6 times more in the black community than in the majority population...”

Herman Cain was just starting to hit Obama and the Dems on this...and that was just when the bimbos started popping up. The right person delivering this message would literally RIP THE DEMOCRATS APART, as blacks would see the genocide that the Democrat leaders are doing to them.

...and regardless of one’s view about this country having more black children (due to less abortions), the bottom-line is that we have to rid the country of Democrats first, or we’ll never even get a chance to deal with (and possibly solve) our racial issues.

Yes. Unfortunately, Blacks aren’t rejecting the demonic campaign at least philosophically. If they are, their voice is being repressed.

Just going to prove how weak Obama actually is, as opposed to the ABO hysteria that regards him as omnipotent Oz the Great and Terrible whom "we couldn't survive" if he got re-elected.

Romney endangers America's future so hideously -- if he wins in a landslide, "progressive" Republicanism will appear to have a popular mandate to proceed; that it was a referendum against Obama would soon and conveniently be forgotten. Conservative Republicans in Congress and beyond would be rendered a helpless fringe as moderate (and craven) Republicans joined with their Republican president in "reaching across the aisle" to Democrats to embrace global warming regs, the homosexual agenda, government-run health care, activist judges, gun control, and on-demand tax-funded abortion.

With Obama staying in the race, at least there's a decent chance that enough disgruntled voters on both sides of the aisle who vote third party, can deny a mandate to either of the statist authoritarians destined to win. ON THE OTHER HAND, Romney has left a very dangerous door open to the Democrats nominating a new "clean slate" instead of Obama, who could win with a majority mandate that Obama, as he stands now, would very likely be denied if he won, as the only way he could win would be on a flimsy plurality.

Romney is VERY BAD NEWS all the way around. No matter which angle one takes, Romney as the Republican nominee is suicidal for American freedom.

Eisenhower ran for president during a time in which the mature generation of blacks were almost all Republicans.

All four of my grandparents voted with 'the party of Lincoln' throughout their lives (when and where they were allowed to vote). Not so with my parents and subsequent generations, who were nearly all herded onto the Democrat plantation.

It may take another generation or two before you see blacks voting for Republicans in those types of numbers again.

Very well said, Finny. That's a sober and mature deduction of political reality. Unfortunately, many of our folks are so terrified of Obama, that they can't process simple logic anymore. You'd think they'd never seen these exact dynamics play out before in national politics before.

Even now, we see Democrats in Congress voting against their best interests, because of the enforced lock-step herd mentality in their party (musn't vote against the boss, you know). Terrified conservatives are not stopping to consider that the exact same dynamics will play out between a president Romney and a Republican dominated Congress.

No, the conservatives will be marginalized and outvoted by the squish contingent every time, thus allowing Romney to 'reach across the aisle' to his friends on the 'other' side.

Yeah, somehow, some way, it's going to be different this time. Gravity will be repealed, and the earth will reverse its spin, if we just elect Mittens. You'll see.

The blacks vote for odumbi regardless of the facts that...

You should also consider countermeasures that Obama deploys:

1 They lose jobs because of this socialist ideals They don't need those jobs because free money from the government compensates, and they don't even need to work to get it
2 Abortion kills their children But the surviving children learn how to have sex before they learn to read or write.
3 The Attorney General pushes Illegal Mexican labor ahead of blacks Labor of illegals is the new slave labor that pays for entitlements and feeds the new collective owner of the plantation.
4 The same Attorney General does nothing to stop black on black violence that kills more of their children Doing anything else would be promoting cracker values; can't have that. Besides, violence keeps the whitey scared and obedient - which is pretty impressive for 10% of the population to achieve over the 90%.

Let me see if I got this straight: you are satisfied to leave Obama in charge in order to not vote for Romney, with the criminal thugocracy Obama has installed, but he will be kept from ending the Republic if we vote conservatives into Congress to prevent him, but if Romney is elected, these same down ticket conservatives will not be conservatives with Romney the disgusting liberal in the White House. Is that about what you’re trying to get us to agree with?

Agreed, Finny, well put - and I would also add that with greater alt media status and strong majorities in the house and senate, Obama can be neutered and quite possibly impeached and removed within 2 short years. The one stickler that I worry about would be any Obama supreme court picks from 2013-2015 but those picks might be shredded and denied a seat by strong conservatives in the senate JC. However, our side can now safely say (after the unmasking of John Roberts) that the supreme court really is a political activist group of "unelected people" - we can agree with the Marxists on that point.

The answer is most definately NOT a vote for Romney.

You’ve got two men who represent opposing parties, but whose actual deeds in office, and their respective end results, are quite similar. Some (including me) consider that there’s no appreciable difference between their records.

Now, the agenda these two men have forwarded through their deeds in office, favors left-wing ideals - and not the established, traditional ideals upon which the country was founded.

Both of their single terms in office resulted in great harm to the established order of things. The agenda they doggedly pursued was a radical departure from the way things had ordinarily been done by their people, and cut across the grain of the oldest traditions and practices which their people had long been accustomed to.

Again...the results were disastrous on both counts.

Now, having described these two men, let’s imagine that one of them currently holds the nation’s highest executive office. For the most part, his fellow party members in the legislature back his agenda with lock-step herd loyalty. Opposition party members in the legislature, for the most part, do not.

Complicating this executive’s execution of his agenda, is the fact that his party controls only one house of the legislature. His solution to this road block is to use the power and privilege of his office to bypass the legislature altogether, when possible, and simply issue executive edicts to accomplish his political goals. He also makes extensive use of the government’s bureaucratic agencies to issue and enforce political edicts which carry the weight of law.

Currently, this executive has achieved much of what he set out to do when he assumed office, and his radical agenda is causing disaster and dislocation throughout the culture and established order of the nation. However, he is term limited by the nation’s Constitution, and is up for re-election. Because of the obvious damage his agenda has inflicted upon the nation, his re-election is by no means guaranteed. In fact, his loss to an opposition challenger is a virtual certainty, provided the opposition party runs a competent, well-liked, well-known person, with a solid record of producing good effects as a chief executive.

The opposition party could not be more perfectly set up to cake walk their way back into power in the executive suite, but what do they do? They choose to run the aforementioned executive, whose record in office bears an unusually striking similarity to the current occupant’s.

This presents a dilemma for those in the opposition party who care less about labels, and more about traditional ideals and end results. By his record, it’s a near certainty that, should he win the election, their chosen candidate will most likely forward the agenda of the other side - representing his party (and their interests) in name and rhetoric only.

Faced with the political and institutional reality that one of these men will win the election, the opposition party, who are quite likely to win control of both houses of the legislature, are faced with having to work with a chief executive who, despite all his rhetoric to the contrary, will most likely continue forwarding the same agenda that has recently done so much damage to the nation.

Many of these legislators will feel compelled to push for a resumption of best practices, as understood by those who elected them to office. Many of them will feel empowered and duty bound to put an end to the radical departures of the previous administration.

And here is where it gets complicated for some people.

Politics is a bit like making sausage. You don’t want to watch how it’s done behind the scene, lest you lose your appetite for the resultant product. A lot of deal-making, strong arm tactics, threats, and compromising, goes into the mix. Despite having a new majority, the opposition party in the legislature will tend toward factionalism and a lock-step herd mentality, mostly predicated on nothing more than the base group dynamic of ‘us versus them’. Thus has it ever been in politics.

This will result in the individual members voting with their ‘team’, and in the case of the opposition party, supporting their team captain’s agenda, should he become the new chief executive.

If the current chief executive somehow holds on to the office, you can expect much less cooperation with his agenda from the opposition-dominated legislature.

Anyone who’s closely watching the legislature now, sees this dynamic at work with the current chief executive. Many of his team members in the legislature have supported his disastrous agenda to their personal detriment. Many have been voted out of office during the current term, and many more will be punished for defying the will of the people.

Whatever happened to self-preservation? Does party loyalty really trump political survival for these legislators? Apparently, for many, it does. Understand, too, that many (if not most) of the newly dominant opposition party legislators will behave exactly as their counterparts across the aisle have, once their guy is chief.

Seems to be a lot of trying to have it both ways: if allowing little barry bastard commie to have four more years, we must vote into office down ticket an army of conservatives who’will’ restrain and perhaps have the guts to impeach the unconstitutional sonofabitch; while on the hand, we are to vote these same ‘conservatives’ in and if Romney gets elected they will become ‘not so principled’ any more. Hail the force, the magic thinking is thick on this one ...
