Blacks “under siege”: Jim Clyburn charges “racism” to help President Obama get re-elected 2012?

Obama is not invincible, he can be defeated in 2012, but as previously has been written here and elsewhere, the president needs to keep near 100% of his bloc of Black voters squarely in his back pocket in order to make his victory feasible…

Thus, as a part of the “Blacks under siege” modus operandi to keep the Black community on edge and in the president’s corner, U.S. House of Representatives Assistant Democratic Leader Rep. Jim Clyburn (S.C.) emphasizes that any problems President Obama has with the electorate has to do with racism…  In plain words, he (along with others like Louis Farrakhan) seems to want Blacks to see themselves primarily as Blacks so as to create more cohesiveness within the group, and thereby again assure the Black vote for the president in 2012… 

The charge of racism will keep coming up because the race card is an important part of the Democratic Party Presidential Campaign 2012 … 

Just sayin’

Person of the Week: Harold Egbert (yes, Egbert) Camping, head of Family Radio, a Christian Broadcasting Network


Photo from Wikipedia:

Apocalypse Now “, today, May 21, says the head of his world-wide Christian Fundamentalist flock…  Trained as a Civil Engineer, he apparently has applied mathematical  derivatives to Christian Scripture to arrive at his Dooms Day scenarios… 

 Egbert, just an ol’  sad fool, a  kook,…  another foil for a 24 hour news cycle diet of advertisements and pablum that leads to the derision of sincerely worshipping Christians, or is he a modern master religious  P.T. Barnum who among the masses and in the public square  boosts  religious thought about The Rapture, “End Times, Day of Judgement? 

Simply put, in this materialistic cynical world, is any attention to Spiritual Salvation necessarily bad?

Republicans Gingrich, Schwarzeneggar, Ensign, 3 peas in a putrid political pod — are there others?


But they have repented, mended their ways and sought forgiveness, so let’s let bygones be bygones because their personal failings brought no harm, no foul to the body politic!?   Republicans, from the party of Family Values, deserve much better —  you think?

Furthermore, a bit long the political slogan, but how does this sound, “Vote Gingrich for president 2012 because he’s only like  every other American, an imperfect Christian, and his current wife was on the church choir when he met her…”?!

“Le Great seducer”, Frenchman Dominique assaults SOFITAL chamber maid in $3,000 a night penthouse suite?!

All right, no problem of course with the  “presumption of innocence” principle accorded all in American judicial circles, but IMF  world “public servantDominique Strauss-Kahn  in reportedly a $3,000 a night SOFITAL suite in New York?…  Give the public a friggin’ break, Mr. Great Seducer Dominique

And what about French Environment Minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet seemingly more interested in lamenting the effect the arrest might have on France…    What  pity…  Vive la France!?…  

Give the public another friggin’ break…   Just sayin’…

Person(s) of the Week: Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan, and “cohorts”


Person(s) of the Week:  An Islamist from Florida, Pakistani born Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan (and cohorts) — reportedly a Naturalized American citizen imam of a Mosque, was recently arrested for “supporting acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming in Pakistan and elsewhere” in support of the Taliban, specifically pushing for attacks against the American military…

Osama Bin Laden’s demise notwithstanding ,  the arrests show that amongst us terrorists are still plotting,  that the War on Terrorism is obviously not over, that victory is not at yet at hand — that thousands of our fellow citizens are still serving and dying in the Middle East and elsewhere…

The Black community “under siege” as a political ploy


Photo from ABC News at a previous event:

It has been written here and elsewhere that contrary to some who believe it is a near foregone conclusion that the president will be unseated in the 2012 Presidential Election,  for various reasons Obama (as any sitting president (or standing) still is a formidable  opponent…   One of the reasons cited is that the president received almost 100 % of the Black vote in the last presidential election, and if the president’s campaign operative’s can keep the Black community feeling it is under siege, they will continue to remain in the fold, regardless of any lack of improvement in their economic wellbeing  under the policies of President Obama…

Note how the “birther” issue and the issue of rapper Common performing at the White House reportedly have helped strengthen the president’s support among Black people because they seem to see the criticisms as attempts at  perpetuating racism against them…

Just sayin’
