It is time for America to get knee deep in the madness that is to elect a replacement for President Obama. Hence, the “clown car” is loading with every right-wing nut and conservative from the other side vying for a seat raising their ugly head, which is nothing more that code for Klan like thinking. It should not be a surprise because the last election proved how that there are many supporters for some of these people. Frankly, it’s a bit scary.
Every so often, in fact, they find some Negro who has gone beyond anything rational when it comes to the African American Diaspora. This time they found a so-called good Negro in a noted doctor or should I quote Malcolm and say “House Nigger” to run. Let me be clear, I am for anyone who has something to offer and I say that notwithstanding that the GOP has shown they do not. Then they prop-up the good doctor to be one of the clowns on their side.
One of the big-time Republican donors said that President Obama was “the most dangerous man in America”, which seems to be this guys talking points. Personally, I hope this guy’s political career will have a short lived. Frankly, he is the kind of person Dr. Carter G. Woodson wrote about in the “Mis-Education of the Negro”; where he so eloquently said, “If there is “no back door,” he will make one”.
Can I say the good doctor is ignorant of history, I will, because “those who forget the past are bound to repeat its mistakes”. I will remind the good doctor of the fate of a few Republicans that came before him like the ghosts of Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele or J.C. Watts who were dismissed when they were no longer useful.
These Negro’s and I meant to use that term, chooses to place great emphasis on being a “conservative.” Must remember that there were and are very influential members of the Ku Klux Klan and other terror groups like the Red Shirts, Knights of the White Camelia and White Citizens Council, many of which wore white sheets and did dreadful things to our people.
Let’s take Cain, for example. One of Cain’s shortcomings was that he came on the scene swinging with statement like Blacks who voted Democratic were “brainwashed” and that thirty-five percent of Blacks were ready to vote for him. Then he boldly proclaimed the Koch brothers were his “brothers by another mother.” How did that work out for him? He now resides in the forgotten piles of useless Black Republicans.
Let’s look at another example, Michael Steele former Chairman of the Republican National Committee. When the Republican Party could not settle on a leader after several rounds of voting, the GOP tried the Ol’ Willie Lynch strategy that was to pit him against President Obama. What better way to bring down the Black man from the lofty position of leadership than to sic another Black man against him. Doctor that is the role you are playing to get your seat in the clown car.
Again, this Negro came out swing; “I will engage the Black Community”. The shame in this is; when some of the most vile criticisms and racist characterizations were leveled against President Obama. These guys don’t have the guts to say, “Wait a minute this is out of bounds!” Instead, he/they join the gang and often louder then the rest. I have a good idea how this story will turn out for him.
Then there is Ol’ Uncle Thomas, who was nominated to the Supreme Court replacing the only Black man to sit on the Court. As a Republican, many people believed Thomas was not really a replacement for the Liberal Thurgood Marshall, who was instrumental in the historic 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case in which the Supreme Court ruled that segregation was illegal and unconstitutional.
Let me remind you this is the guy who appears to be sleeping on the bench and said during his confirmation hearing that it was a “high tech lynching.” He went to work; siding with some of the most Conservative rulings imaginable. Let’s see how kind history is to him.
How about J.C. Watts who, and I will only admit this once, I liked. He was young, articulate and good looking; presumably with a great future in the Republican Party. Didn’t seem to work out so well or let me just say he was soon “retired” and only trucked out to make a comment about some insignificant issue? Do these guys sound like Allen Keys, Ward Connelly, or any number of others used by the GOP? Ray Charles, who was blind and dead, can see fault in their position. Maybe thirty pieces of silver is worth more to them than it is to me.
Being reminded of their need for a sort of Spook who sat by the Door; well, they got one because he is speaking their language so they can bankroll his candidacy. I know he thinks of himself as some kind of supreme patriot! With that said, let me end this pitiful assessment of what is to come by saying “Negro Please!” And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
The first thing I saw on my social media page after the Mid-term election results were confirmed was “God is Good”! There must have been hundreds of like comments one after another proclaiming or maybe asking God to take care of us. I agree if there was ever a time when we need his mercy – it is now, because we have just been delivered unto evil. Tuesday’s results affirmed some of the most extreme right-wing radicals ever elected to Congress in recent memory. Make no mistake the new crop of radicals have one goal and purpose, which is to destroy the black man – President Obama!
Let’s take a look at just a few of the extremists: Glenn Grothman, who won Wisconsin’s 6th District. Grothman wants to eliminate weekends and believes “no people…care about Kwanza…” He co-sponsored a bill that equated single-parenthood with child abuse. In addition… agrees with Joni Ernst, known as the castrator, that there should be a personhood amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Everyone knows the Tea Party’s agenda to take back their country. The question then becomes – how far they want to take it back. Yet, white America voted these people into power in most cases overwhelmingly.
Then there is the House Speaker from North Carolina elected Senator once tacked an anti-abortion provision to a motorcycle safety bill that would have closed all but one of North Carolina’s abortion clinics. He also compared welfare to reparations, claiming the United States has “redistributed” “trillions of dollars over the years” — amounting to “de facto reparations.” In addition he, Tillis has stated, “What we have to do is find a way to divide and conquer the people who are on assistance.”
More frightening was the election of Mitch McConnell as the leader of the pack. This is the guy who has said on many occasions that it is his intent to “make this president a one term president” and to “repeal Obama Care”. For sure, we will see the war mongers come out and see that the rich get richer be it from harmful trade agreements and deregulation. Let’s not forget the privatization of Social Security and Medicaid. We will see investigation after investigation and yes – IMPEACHMENT of the president.
White America can take credit for this because they voted against their own interest to show their hatred for President Obama. I’m reminded of that old saying be careful what you ask for because you might get it. The history if this gang is clear. They have done nothing but obstruct and say no to everything that might benefit the American people. Now has the burden to produce!
It’s incumbent upon these far-right wing radicals to show it can accomplish something. My sense in these far-right radicals, who have said, they want their country back will take a from the time of reconstruction and we know how that worked out. Now might be a good time to ask God to Bless America because we’ve got some difficult times ahead. And that’s my thought provoking perspective.
Last Week Tonight offer this commentary about the elections. While midterm coverage is largely focused on the parts of Congress that do very little, vital (and bizarre) midterm elections are going unexamined. State legislators pass a lot of bills, and some of that efficiency is thanks to a group called ALEC that writes legislation for them. Could this be why about a third of the people who can voter – actually vote? It’s as shady as it sounds!
Malcolm X said, “give a man the vote and call him free”.
