I think there’s a good reason to vote for Obama (if Ron Paul isn’t given the Republican nomination) even though he’s black, and even if you don’t like blacks . . .
- The Neoconservatives are exploiting, oppressing and manipulating the average white American like slaveowners used to exploit black people
- The imperialists are trying to silence average, patriotic, family-loving Americans like the slaveowners used to demand that the slaves spoke only when spoken to
- The tyrants are raping the American treasury, stealing our possessions (by wrecking the economy with high inflation, which drains our wealth), and stripping us of our liberty and our dignity, as the slaveowners did to the slaves
This is just an analogy, and I am not trying to overstate the comparison. But in a certain sense, we are all black . . .
And to the extent that Obama follows through on his promises to restore our freedom and dignity, to restore the Constitution and the rule of law, and to liberate America from our wanna-be lords and masters, he’s got my vote.
Disclaimer: I’m a white guy. So I can’t speak to the black experience. And I understand there are huge racial tensions in America.
But what’s more important: Your anger and hatred? Or protecting yourself from the anti-American tyrants?
If you are black, I didn’t use the phrase “African-American” because this essay is aimed at White racists, so please cut me some slack.
Consider your slack cut.
I like George Washington’s Blog. The person who writes it doesn’t hold back when he writes. He sounds like a Real American.
Sadly, (and ‘George Washington’ certainly knows this) Obomba is no ‘choice’ at all. He is just as insane as Bush, as the ever reliable and inert Pilger says concisely:
Understanding Obama as a likely president of the United States is not possible without understanding the demands of an essentially unchanged system of power: in effect a great media game. For example, since I compared Obama with Robert Kennedy in these pages, he has made two important statements, the implications of which have not been allowed to intrude on the celebrations. The first was at the conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (Aipac), the Zionist lobby, which, as Ian Williams has pointed out, “will get you accused of anti-Semitism if you quote its own website about its power”. Obama had already offered his genuflection, but on 4 June went further. He promised to support an “undivided Jerusalem” as Israel’s capital. Not a single government on earth supports the Israeli annexation of all of Jerusalem, including the Bush regime, which recognises the UN resolution designating Jerusalem an international city.
His second statement, largely ignored, was made in Miami on 23 May. Speaking to the expatriate Cuban community – which over the years has faithfully produced terrorists, assassins and drug runners for US administrations – Obama promised to continue a 47-year crippling embargo on Cuba that has been declared illegal by the UN year after year.
Again, Obama went further than Bush. He said the United States had “lost Latin America”. He described the democratically elected governments in Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua as a “vacuum” to be filled. He raised the nonsense of Iranian influence in Latin America, and he endorsed Colombia’s “right to strike terrorists who seek safe-havens across its borders”. Translated, this means the “right” of a regime, whose president and leading politicians are linked to death squads, to invade its neighbours on behalf of Washington. He also endorsed the so-called Merida Initiative, which Amnesty International and others have condemned as the US bringing the “Colombian solution” to Mexico. He did not stop there. “We must press further south as well,” he said. Not even Bush has said that.
It is time the wishful-thinkers grew up politically and debated the world of great power as it is, not as they hope it will be. Like all serious presidential candidates, past and present, Obama is a hawk and an expansionist. He comes from an unbroken Democratic tradition, as the war-making of presidents Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter and Clinton demonstrates. Obama’s difference may be that he feels an even greater need to show how tough he is. However much the colour of his skin draws out both racists and supporters, it is otherwise irrelevant to the great power game. The “truly exciting and historic moment in US history” will only occur when the game itself is challenged.
Which option is better; a world wide economic meltdown precipitated by the destruction of the dollar as the reserve currency, that will be over in a few years, resulting in the end of the Evil Empire, ‘The Great Satan’, OR a devastating World War and every evil that will come out of it, started by either Onset Alzheimers McSlay’in or
Secret Overt Musilm Murderer Obomba?
The people who control the american government will not, it seems, back down. The good people of that great country are being prevented from getting the truth so that they can do the right thing, as is their nature to do when the have the facts.
The only option left is the complete abandonment of the dollar, should even a single bullet be loaded in preparation to be fired against Iran. Once the dollar is destroyed the attack cannot happen, they will make their excuses for backing off in order to save face, and the dragon will have been caged.
If anyone has a better idea, by all means, point it out. For certain, we know who does NOT have a better idea.
