College Marching Band Spells Out O-B-A-M-A on the Field During Bayou Classic Football Game
THEBLAZE ^ | November 26, 2012 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 11/26/2012 7:02:34 AM PST by artichokegrower

Each year, the Grambling State University Tigers and the Southern University Jaguars get together to compete in the State Farm Bayou Classic. On Saturday, the 39th annual football game unfolded, with Southern winning 38-33. While the game likely exited a great many, it was the halftime show that distinguished itself as particularly memorable. The victorious school’s marching band coordinated themselves to spell out “Obama” on the field — an action that was noted by both supporters and critics of the president, alike.

That was in that obscure game on NBC I think. Don’t really care to watch it, both teams suck and have no relevance in college football. Besides, both are inherently racist institutions, being all black.

The disgusting worship of Obama continues. This country - the USA - is in full-blown melt down. Depravity is quickly consuming this nation as more people openly shake their fist at God.

The end is near.

I’ve examined the left’s support for homosexuals.
I don’t believe they support homosexuality for its own sake at all, and even the guise of “human rights” is pretty thin.

The left supports homosexuality because it is a way to shake their fist in God’s face.

Jamie Foxx: ‘Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama’

“JAMIE FOXX: First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama.

Please also notice that this clip was used as a promo for the presentation by BET.

I guess Obama really IS the messiah.”

I used to love watching the Ohio State marching band spell out 'Ohio'. It was a marvel to watch. I haven't seen it in years since the networks stopped showing halftime marching band shows.

I concur. If you look just below the surface you will see this same sheer defiance behind the abortion issue as well. It really is a pathological hatred of our Creator.

It is also borne out in most of the left’s positions, such as illogical support for Islamists over Christians, the lack of support, or even outright opposition to Israel.

Three times the Democratic Party loudly voted to remove God and Israel from their Party platform and the corrupt MSM basically was in agreement with this because they certainly didn’t think it was an issue worthy of coverage.

It is evil being played out right before our eyes to those who can see.

Means nothing. Same as the Crips and Bloods. No difference whatsoever. The real problem is the media not covering it and if they did, it was certainly covered in a positive tone.

Beginning to look like pre WW2 Germany. Hitler’s name was routinely substituted into Christmas Carols to herald the coming of the new messiah.

Doesn’t give one much hope when you see this type of emotional and mental instability.

Total cult of personality.

There have been several scandals mentioned on tv regarding financial upsets and such at Southern University (which is a very small school in Houston) - but this one caught my eye, mainly because I think a lot of current teachers are just dumber than dirt - perhaps this explains how they graduated:

. Southern University This is probably the biggest changing grades scandal in US history. It was found that an assistant registrar had changed grades from 1995 to 2003, when the story broke. It was discovered that the assistant registrar charged 541 students hundreds of dollars in over 2500 illegal transaction in order to change grades. Everything emerged when a young woman presented herself as a graduate of the school, but the school could find no record of her earning a degree. It was later determined that several students “earned” fake Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and teaching certifications.

"The left supports homosexuality because it is a way to shake their fist in God’s face."

CS Lewis begins Mere Christianity with a discourse on natural law, pointing out that in virtually any alterecation or disagreement, there is an appeal to a higher moral standard; that people don't so much disagree on the standard, but merely over who actually complied with it, or whether an exception to it is justified.

Such is the case with secularism. They don't really deny God or God's law, they merely think it's cool to defy it.

Interesting that you use the word “cool” to describe their attitude towards defying God.

This is, actually, the working definition of “cool”, if you examine it.

“Cool” is exhibiting just the “right” amount, above the average, level of defiance towards authority based on traditional and biblical values.

I think that these are both “black” colleges and we all know that the AA vote went for him by 94%. However, The Blaze is rascist for being a forum for printing the rascist author’s article, plus you are rascist for readint it!

IIRC, they did this at the 2008 Bayou Classic game, too. I'm sort of surprised they haven't done it every year since.

This is the game that the New Orleans hotels and downtown businesses all hate, because of the ticketholders' behavior. Businesses near the Superdome often close early to allow their female employees to leave before the crowd gathers.

Yup, both of those teams suck. There is no way that game would be on national TV on a Saturday afternoon unless they were both “traditionally black colleges”! Of course, it’s only ok for them to refer to themselves as “traditionally black”. If anyone else does, they’re racist!

I’m not happy to admit, these racist displays kindle the fires of racism in me.

***
All part of the master plan to keep us at one another’s throats.

So glad I live in a somewhat rural area. When I do go into our nearby small town, nearly all of the black people I meet there are just as respectful of me as I am of them. There does seem to be one pastor in town in my age group — boomer — who, therefore, remembers the days of racial segregation and seems to want to keep the resentment going. But I don’t know how big his congregation is or how much influence he has.
