Dem Congresswoman: Only Reason Id Vote for Syria Attack Is Loyalty to Obama
News Busters ^ | Swptember 3, 2013 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 09/03/2013 11:01:03 AM PDT by yoe

Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama.

Appearing on radio's Bill Press Show, the non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia also said if the President actually gets the votes he needs, "it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage"

Ms. Holmes should speak for her country, America, not for the color of her skin. Too many in our government who are self-serving like Ms. Norton....this is the ultimate tragedy for a nation...Obama has already disgraced himself to the nation and to the world as one of the weakest leaders in history as well as the most self-serving POTUS.

Wow. Even Eleanor Holmes Norton is to the RIGHT of John "'I'm Going to Support the President's Call for Action' in Syria" Boehner.

Is anyone in the media seeing the hypocrisy of liberals clamoring for war?

The blind, loyal stupidity of the Democrat Party on full display. Dems are all about groupthink and walking in lockstep with each other, even if it means not thinking for yourself or for the people who voted for you. This is why the Left fears “American individuality”, they don’t like people thinking foe themselves.

The Democrats shame and humiliate themselves by supporting their slavemaster instead of their country. The National Uncle Tom Party has an unspoken loyalty oath to Der Schvartze Fuhrer.

All HAIL!

Norton is not a congresswoman. She is DC’s “representative delegate” in the Congress. Her vote is not binding in the least.

Valerie just checked my offshore holdings and issued the "Obama
Doctrine:" the bombing mission must protect my image. Any
resulting damage---mitigated by war profiteering---is an
acceptable trade-off.

================================================

BACKGROUND MUSIC---"That Old Black Magic Has Me In Its Spell"

" This'll get done fast---I gotta get back to golf."

"A few measly bombs will pump-up all of our resumes,
especially Benghazi screw-ups Susan Rice, candidate Hillary...
and that pontificating jerk, Kerry. "

"And at $50 billion per day for the incursion, all who support me,
Republican and Democrat, will get a cut. Should be in the
neighborhood of a few $hundred million each. "

"War-profiteering is big bucks. Just ask the 'bombs-away neocons."
That damn *itch Michelle's nagging me for new diamonds and a
pricey Vineyard house."

I'll get jumped on for this, but, isn't this what liberal black Americans do. They will destroy the schools, fill the prisons, bankrupt the country with entitlement programs... rather than be embarrassed by the truth.

Loyalty to Obama trumps the good of the nation to these people. Be it party loyalty or black solidarity, it is dangerous and wrong.

I received an email from MoveOn.Org on Saturday, after Obama’s announcement that he was requesting Congressional approval. The email included a video about Syria and the petition was a plea to Obama to not return violence with violence. I didn’t watch it immediately.

Yesterday, I began to wonder if MoveOn was going to go against Obama and decided to click on the video . What happened was that the video was short circuited. I could only watch the introduction and half of the first speaker. Next to the video was a statement that the petition now states that MoveOn opposes military action unless Obama wins the support of Congress. The flip flop was a dead give away to their position.

But what about for the children? What about for the oppressed and disenfranchised women and minorities? Aren’t you supposed to care about them first and foremost above all else, Ms. Holmes? Guess not, even though your party supposedly commands you to do so without question.

The only reason I would support the Holocaust is because of loyalty to Hitler.

Actually she support Obama because she and he are black.

She also support freeing Mumia.

Nothing like the race card to get a free pass from judging a person based on color instead of character...the real racists are the ones who won’t look at the character (that is substitute policy/beliefs for character), but only the color and gave free pass based on that.

Seems pretty easy to identify our enemies but when they even tell you loyalty to skin color is more important than the country well,,, I think that tree of liberty is looking quite weakly right now.

"Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama."

If Obama decided to attack Canada I guess Eleanor Holmes Norton would vote for it out of "loyalty" to Obama. If Obama decided to round up the population of an American town and shoot and execute them, Holmes Norton would back Obama out of loyalty. What a brainless lemming.

I’m not jumping on you. You are exactly right. I just saw an amazing article today written by a lying black hack journo wanna-be about how blacks need to “stop supporting whites and take care of ourselves”. It was amazing. I said to myself, right, we can’t wait for them to take a break from “improving” our communities and schools, to go build those world-beating communities and schools for themselves they’ve had on hold all this time, on our behalf.

>>BACKGROUND MUSIC-—”That Old Black Magic Has Me In Its Spell”<<

Apropos, I was also thinking:

Styx The Grand Illusion

Welcome to the Grand illusion
Come on in and see what’s happening
Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star.

But don’t be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they’re just someone else’s fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it’s a Grand illusion
And deep inside we’re all the same.
We’re all the same...

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that it’s a Grand illusion
And deep inside we’re all the same.
We’re all the same...

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon we’ll stop to ponder what on Earth’s this spell we’re under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

That’s why the dems in congress are going to vote for 0bama’s madness. They listened to the public, which said “no bombing” and they got a phone call from the big guy, and that settled it.

Kudos for FR posters not to upload a photo of Holmes ... recognizing that as a non-voting representative from DC who regards obama with awe, a photo is totally unnecessary.

We have too many people, (not just black liberals) who show no evidence of rational thought. They have no ability to do anything constructive or produce anything of value, but they believe themselves worthy of telling me what to do. Correction, they believe themselves worthy of forcing me to do what is against my best interest. I guess, if you’ve spent your whole life surrounded by fools, and you’re smarter than they, you would think yourself qualified to tell others what to do. They should stop judging everyone by what they see in the hood.

Of course. You voted for him because he's black. You support him because he's black. It has nothing to do with the merits of the issue at hand.

I have a dream...where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

My dream too, Mr MLK.
