Skip to comments.Black Like Us: The Race Clownery of Obama-Biden
Posted on 08/15/2012 1:05:01 PM PDT by IbJensen
Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing.
At a campaign event in Danville, Va., the gaffetastic veep dropped his g's and picked up a bizarre twang in front of an audience of black voters. Middle-Class Joe swapped his Home Depot apron for an A.M.E. preacher's robe and sermonized about the big, bad GOP.
Romney's "gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules," Biden shouted. "Unnnn-chain Wall Street," he exclaimed with pulpit bravado. "They're gonna put y'all back in chains," the pasty Delaware wheeler-dealer faux-drawled. Extra-emphasis on the "y'all."
Yes, Biden is rattling chains like an extra in "Roots." This is the same politician of pallor who cracked jokes about Indians who work in 7-Elevens and who referred to his now-boss as "clean" and "articulate." Yet, Biden's demagoguery was met with approving hoots and hollers. Or rather, hollas.
Naturally, the defiant Obama campaign backed up Biden and gave a shout-out of its own. Welcome to the new tone and the same old slime. Prevaricating spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter (last seen defending the phony, indefensible Romney-killed-a-steelworker's-wife ad run by Obama Super PAC Priorities USA) chimed in after Biden's speech. "We have no problem with those comments," she told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. Biden "was using a metaphor" with which the president agrees.
Timing matters. Biden's race-baiting came after a weekend clogged with divisive jabs at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's announcement of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate.
Democratic Rep. Donna Christensen, the non-voting delegate from the U.S. Virgin Islands to the U.S. House of Representatives, tweeted: "Wait a minute! Are there black people in Va? Guess just not w Romney Ryan! At least not seeing us. We know who's got our back & we have his." Left-wing actress Mia Farrow watched the announcement and derided a "whole bunch of white people." They were joined by countless "progressive" social media users who mocked the GOP's "white guy, white guy 2012!!!" Sirius XM radio host Dave Rubin himself the color of discount Charmin toilet paper called Romney-Ryan "the whitest ticket since the KKK voted for their box social chairperson."
Gotta love post-racial America!
The poisonous slavery allusion echoed the former pastor of Biden's boss. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, you may recall, used the same "chains" imagery to justify his "God Damn America" diatribe. "America," he inveighed in Obama's old Chicago-based Trinity United Church, put blacks in "chains ... and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America'? No, no, no. Not God bless America; God damn America!"
Biden's stunt also echoes Hillary Clinton's infamous black church minstrel performances in which she unleashed a mortifying Southern-spiced-with-street accent to show her street solidarity: "For the last five years, we've had No. Power. At. All. And that makes a big difference, because when you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation. An' yew know what ah'm talkin' about."
At an event with race-hustler Al Sharpton, she poured it on thicker: "I'm afraid I'm gonna lift up the rug, and I'm goin' to see so much stuff uh-nder thar. ... You know, what is it about us always havin' to clean up after people? ... But this is not just goin' to be pickin' up socks off the floor. This is goin' to be cleanin' up the government."
At least the only thing she manufactured was her patronizing dialect. Remember candidate Barack Obama's 2007 Selma, Ala., speech? To court black voters, Obama claimed that President Kennedy had sponsored the airlift in Africa responsible for bringing his family to the U.S. and asserted that Selma's 1965 Bloody Sunday demonstration brought his parents together and led to his birth. Of course, JFK didn't take office until two years after Obama's father arrived in the U.S., and the president was born four years before Bloody Sunday.
Obama-Biden 2012: Never let facts, civility or scruples get in the way of a racist racial pander.
Ill have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years. Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One -
These Negroes, theyre getting pretty uppity these days and thats a problem for us since theyve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now weve got to do something about this, weve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.LBJ http://www.canadafreepress.com...
After almost 50 years of bondage to an evil master, you'd think they'd get a clue.
To think that LBJ, the biggest bigot of them all, is a hero to Blacks because he instituted the demise of the Black family by substituting government welfare check for fathers and husbands is just pitiful.
Wake up, people. Are your ghettos better off than they were in 1950? How about the gangs in the streets killing innocent children and old folks as they pretend that they actually own something?
The liberals are asking us to give Obama time.
We agree...and think 25 to life would be appropriate.

Obamas Refi Plan Is Another Bank Bailout, Stockman Says: The Worst Kind of Crony Socialism
Bank Bailout 2: Obama Lets Mortgage Abusers Off the Hook
Obama: Bailing Out the Banks "Was Necessary," but "I Hated It"
The TARP bailout is peanuts compared to the numerous other bailouts the government has given to the giant banks [and even the numerous rounds of quantitative easing are a drop in the bucket compared to stealth bailout programs].
And Im not referring to the $23 trillion in bailouts, loans, guarantees and other publicy-disclosed programs that the special inspector general for the TARP program mentions. Im talking about more covert types of bailouts.
Mortgages and Housing
*** PhD economists John Hussman and Dean Baker, fund manager and financial writer Barry Ritholtz and New York Times writer Gretchen Morgenson say that the only reason the government keeps giving billions to Fannie and Freddie is that it is really a huge, ongoing, back-door bailout of the big banks.
Many also accuse Obamas foreclosure relief programs as being backdoor bailouts for the banks. (See this, this, this and this).
Commercial Real Estate, Mortgage Backed Securities, Cars and Student Loans
Some pretty sharp writers allege that the government is also secretly bailing out the banks by supporting everything from commercial real estate, to mortgage-backed securities, car loans and student loans (and dont forget McDonalds and Harley).
The governments failure to rein in derivatives or break up the giant banks also constitute enormous subsidies, as it allows the giants to make huge sums by keeping the true price points of their derivatives secret. See this and this.
The big banks such as JP Morgan also benefit from foreign bailouts, such as the European bailout, as they are some of the largest creditors of the bailed out countries, and the bailouts allow them to get paid in full, instead of having to write down their foreign losses. So when the Fed bails out foreign banks, it is a bailout for American banks as well.
Toxic Assets and Accounting Shenanigans
The PPIP program which was supposed to reduce the toxic assets held by banks actually increased them (at least in the short-run), and just let the banks make a quick buck.
In addition, the government suspended mark-to-market valuation of the toxic assets held by the giant banks, and is allowing the banks to value the assets at whatever price they desire. This constitutes a huge giveaway to the big banks.
Is that photo real or photoshopped?
Sorry Ole Joe, all those evil Wall Street Bankers were hired by by the Obama Administration and have been writting their own rules for 3 1/2 years. So yes Joe, we are already in chains.
I guess Slow Joe never “got” the “Ah ain’t no ways tahhred” jokes directed at Hillary. Glad Michelle wrote this. Of course, she’ll continue to receive her share of death threats from the “tolerant” collective.
I heard a wonderful call on Rush/Sub today from a black lady who absolutely SLAMMED the race-baiters... “Please don’t let them chain us, Joe! We’ll vote for you forever!” Heavy sarcasm. It was brilliant.
He was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in New York, New York.

Ole Scranton Joe Biden.
Everyone knows him in Scranton although he hasn’t been there for thirty years.
He’s still fondly remembered as the village idiot.
My sis-in-law forwarded it in an email. I found the original via web search on Duh Bro gotta go picture: http://www.politicalchips.org/photo/duh-bro-gotta-go?xg_source=activity.
Queers are so damned funny! Ha, ha, ha!
They should have their own reservation.

Biden would be funny if he wasn’t VP of the US of A. Wait, he is still funny. Well, more sad/funny.
Now that is hilarious!
