A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Never Give A Democrat A Cookie…Or Pie…Or Lobster October 19, 2010

Remember this quote from Michelle Obama back during the 2008 campaign days?

The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.

—Michelle Obama

But Michelle never really gave up her $500 Lanvin tennis shoes, or trips to Spain for lobster fest …

I did and here is my story…

Sunday, I went grocery shopping as usual. Campbell’s soup was 10 cans for 10$, so I got some of those.  Brownberry bread was buy one get one free with my shoppers card.  I passed my favorite Sugar Wafer cookies by Nabisco- eek $4.99.  I went on by.  At the deli stand I requested Swiss cheese, smoked turkey and “Old Fashioned Loaf” meat.

While rolling by the seafood stand I espied two gorgeous large lobster tails.  There was a sale sign that said $5.99 each.  My eyes blinked in disbelief.   Scallops were nearby and they were beauties also.  Being economical, I asked for some salmon fillets.  The seafood clerk wrapped my fillets in the familiar white butcher paper and slapped the price tag on.   I had hardly noticed his outstretched hand because I was still gazing at the lobster tails.

“Miss,” he said waving the salmon.  “Is that all?”

I shook off my lobster lust and nodded my head grabbing the package of salmon.

The next stop was the meat counter for beef stew meat and a few steaks.  Surf and Turf was calling my name.  Still had a bit of gas in the grill- this could be the last hurrah so to speak for grilling season.  Okay, okay, okay…I will get the lobster tails.  My cart did a 90 degree turn and I smiled widely and told the seafood clerk ”  I have decided to get those lobster tails.”

I pointed to the only two lobster tails in the display case.  “Those,”  I claimed, chest sticking out like a peacock.   Afrocity gonna feast on some lobster TONIGHT!!!

The melted butter and lemon smell was aromatically playing over and over in my head.  My little treat for me too bad mother is dead- well not that it mattered- she was allergic to shellfish anyway.   Baked potatoes would be a great pairing- get in my Michelle Obama veggies-

“Forty-five dollars .”

And I could maybe invite my dad over to share or eat both tails my- ” HUH?”

“Forty-five dollars.”

NO!!!!  I looked at the sale sign and pointed ” It says lobster tails  $5.99 each -“

The seafood man came around the counter and laughed. ” Oh, that. That sale is for the small tails.  I am out of those.”

I must have looked like someone just told me Christmas was canceled because the poor man shrugged his shoulders and looked guilty.  ” The tails you pointed out are large tails, they are like twenty something each…”

I walked away from the counter.

“You don’t still want these? I wrapped them-“

With a grinch snarl, I shook my head and made a speedy getaway with my shopping cart. How embarrassing.  For a moment I thought just spend the $45.  If I put back the vanity light bulbs, fancy ravioli, Welch’s pomegranate blueberry juice with added fiber, Patsy’s Pasta Sauce, $4.99 Vanilla Chai Protein drink…the ten cans of soup- then maybe I could have the lobster tails.  And what does that counter seafood guy think of my race now?

“Cheap black people always want something for nothing.”

Maybe I should buy the tails just to prove that African American can afford lobster.

You see, even Afrocity succumbs to racial brainwashing at times.

When all was debated in my head and done, I did not buy the lobster tails and had stuffed chicken breasts for dinner.

Not as appetizing as surf and turf but with the recession, I could not justify paying so much for a meal for lil’ ol me.

We all need to start making some changes to how our families eat. Now, everyone loves a good Sunday dinner. Me included. And there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is when we eat Sunday dinner Monday through Saturday.

–Michelle Obama

Yes my thermostat was set to 75 degrees and Barry Obama would not like that either.

We can’t drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times, whether we’re living in the desert or we’re living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK, you know, you guys go ahead keep on using 25 percent of the world’s energy, even though you only account for 3 percent of the population, and we’ll be fine. Don’t worry about us. That’s not leadership.

~~ Barack Obama


So I did not give up my piece of the pie.  I am selfish but turning my back on the lobster tails was a start…wasn’t it?

Anyway, this humorous video by RightChange explains why you should never give your piece of the pie or a cookie to a Democrat.

Liberal Summer Film Fest : Eat Lobster, Love, Pray August 31, 2010

Luncheon in Fur

In a recent post, I wrote about my intense dislike for bullshit. My writings also described the obviously millions of Americans who revel in its sustenance when it comes to any fantasy fulfilling pill to swallow from President Barack Obama.

I am mindful that the president is well liked.

I am mindful that for many, this man represents what was previously thought to be unobtainable.The forty acres and a mule has arrived. Rejoice! The African American standard has been raised.   We can all eat lobster now- that is if you can afford it.

From this post at the White House Dossier:

Obamas Depleting U.S. Lobster Supply

Keith Koffler 

August 25, 2010

So how much lobster are you having during these precarious economic times? What? You’ve had to cut back? No longer ordering it stuffed with crab meat, at least?

Well, if you happen to be the President of the United States or the First Lady, your lobster consumption is continuing at a robust pace.

Yes, the economy is still getting battered. And Tuesday night,  so was President Obama’s lobster.

According to ABC’s Jake Tapper, the president  savored some lobster tempura  at the trendy State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard. Oh, just the thought of it. If he brings some back to the White House for me, I’ll write whatever he wants.

Monday night at The Sweet Life Cafe in Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard it was the lobster pasta appetizer for the president and a surf and turf entrée – the “surf” being a lobster tail – for Mrs. Obama.

And what would the vacation to Maine in July have been without a taste of everyone’s favorite crustacean. The president did it in a little less genteel fashion that time, heading over to something called Stewman’s Downtown restaurant where he was served the “Lobster Experience” dinner – just regular lobster, corn and slaw.

But the Obamas’ lobster experience is not confined to these shores. Michelle Obama was barely off the plane during her voyage early this month to the Spanish Riviera when, according to the Spanish press, she dived into a feast of sea bass tartare, strawberry gazpacho and sardines, and a main course of lobster with seaweed risotto.

Michelle enjoyed the repast so much that she was right back at it on  August 14 during the Obamas’ two-day Panama City, Fla photo-op vacation. There, at the Firefly restaurant, it was more lobster for Michelle.

Let Them Eat Lobster!!!

Yes again, congratulations  Mr. and Mrs. President on raising the cuisine bar for blacks. We have finally made it to the top.

African Americans and seafood is an inside joke among us brothers and sisters.   When I was in college for a date if a guy really wants to impress a woman he would take her to Red Lobster.  Shrimp, crab, lobster, are all pretty expensive for a family on a budget- even more so if you are a struggling black college student.

Hearing language in the vein of  “Man, I ain’t taking her all out to get no lobster or anything…she ain’t all that!”

Or if you are a young woman like one classmate of mine :

” Shoot as good as I looking tonight that negro had better take me to get some snow crab and lobster. I just got my hair did and looking tight… “

was not uncommon.

Red Lobster is like the pleasure dome of culinary venues for many.  Cheddar biscuit and all you can eat heaven.

From Urban Dictionary:

red lobster

Often reffered[sic] to as “ghetto seafood”.

A place where rednecks, uneducated, ghetto, and often illiterate people go on special occasions, birthdays, aniversarries [sic], weddings. Redlobster is a restaurant which specializes in serving food to the lower portion of society which is why they serve what customers reffer to as, “fried skrimps” with “smashed pertaters”. If fathers day is the most confusing holiday for you, or if your entire extended family consists of five people which live in the same double-wide, your favorite restaurant is most likely red lobster.
“Hey hunny happy aniverarry were going to red lobster!!!”

Because dining out is a cultural event in some circles, I was not one bit shocked to hear the following on a Chicago bus recently:

“Obama is all up in that White House mutha eating lobster and steaks, brutha eating good like a black boy should,” laughed the older African American male in his mid to late fifties.

His companion also a black male, of about the same age chuckled along with him and added,  “Man I’d be eating lobster all damn day too if I was president…Ni–ga will kill for some lobster now…gotta wait for someone to die n’ shit before you can get some lobster…”

After this important  topic, the men then began a conversation about  a subject that was more serious and pertinent to the woes of African Americans in Chicago.  Apparently  they knew  a friend’s son  that was killed by random gunfire.  Not surpising seeing as how 300 people were shot in Chicago during the month of July:

From this story in the Chicago Tribune

303 people shot in July

By Annie Sweeney, Jeremy Gorner and Joe Germuska  August 21, 2010

…More than 300 people were shot in Chicago last month. At least 33 of them have died.

Some victims made headlines, like 13-year-old Robert Freeman Jr., who was fatally shot on his block while hanging out with friends. The city paused when two Chicago police officers — Michael Bailey and Thor Soderberg — were gunned down in uniform within weeks of each other.

But many more victims of shootings in July — historically among the city’s most dangerous months — suffered unnoticed by the rest of the city.

Crime has been holding steady in Chicago in recent years. Through July, there have been 1,089 shootings in the city, a 2.4 percent decrease over last year. This July, police counted 221 shooting incidents, compared with 229 in July 2009. A review of seven years worth of shootings showed similar numbers.

In other words, this was a typical July.

The Chicago Police Department declined to provide the number of shooting victims in July or comment about the month’s shooting tally. But a Tribune analysis of reported shootings, based on logs kept by police and reporting by the Tribune, counted 303 people who were injured in shootings last month.

The Tribune’s analysis showed that shootings occurred in predictable places — the Far South Side and West Side, for instance, where violence has been a pervasive problem for decades. It also showed how a bullet — even one that doesn’t kill — pierced a path of destruction in victims, families and the neighborhoods where they live.

So great! President Obama and his First Lady can live the Great American Lobster Fest!!

Now does this mean that his supporters must continue remain totally blind to the incompetency of the Obama administration?

Do you have to aid and abet an empty suit government?  Can you continue to ignore the complete and utterly blatant absence of checks and balances when it comes to the passage of” Obamalawz ” ?  Healthcare …executive orders,  immigration? Does this mean that you have not checked your bank balances recently?

Is there a lobster in every pot or just water stew with a few leaves of arugula floating around in it?

And yes in full disclosure- I have dined on lobster this summer. Jewel Foodstore had a sale on lobster tails at $6.99 each.  I bought two lobster tails.  $14 splurge for Afrocity and the next day I ate spaghetti with Ragu sauce for dinner and Beenie Weenies for lunch  to make up for it.

For liberals, the rich and  Christian conservatives are the wrongdoers.

I mentioned in many of my posts that liberals adore being victims and I will admit here that some are.  However, the people doing the fighting for the victims, are far from being victims and many of them never were victims. Not then, not when you voted for them because they “got you” and certainly not now.  They need victims in order to be elected. Once elected,  you stay a victim while they spoon our tax dollars down their throats.

They eat lobster while you eat that Hope n’ Change cake.

Mmmmm good huh?  Tastes like air.

Of all political ideologies liberalism, according to Democrats, is the most caring.

Really?

Did you know that in 2007  Sarah Palin gave more to charity than Obama and Joe Biden combined?  She also made less money than the then DNC high office nominees.  Much fodder was made out of Sarah Palin’s RNC bought wardrobe.  Debate encircled the Alaskan VP candidate and her choice of make-up, clothes, shoes, Kmart pampers.

“Sarah is so out of touch with American people,” a liberal acquaintance told me. ” She is so provincial. Big house, all of these kids…In Huffpo it was reported that she cost the state of Alaska millions in travel fees to cart around those brats and her snow ski bunny husband…They say she has a tanning bed in her house. IN HER HOUSE!!!”

You are probably wondering what Afrocity was doing at this point in the conversation.

Nothing.

My friend’s Palin hate was on autopilot. There was no stopping her and in fact, I took some sort of sick twisted tingle up my leg joy while watching her.

While bemoaning Sarah’s tanning bed, my friend never once mentioned Barack Obama’s discounted mob assisted mansion-ish purchase.  Not one word about First Lady, Michelle Obama’s Lanvin $565 tennis shoes, or her shopping sprees at Ikram (an upscale Chicago designer boutique).

Michelle Obama in her groovy $500 plus Lanvin shoes

$500 shoes worn to a charity event during a recession?

But somehow  in the eye’s of his adoring supporters,  the Obama’s are in touch with the American People.  Sure they are in touch with the American people…All of the American people  who attended Ivy League schools and were raised in Hawaii, and now live in mansions.  Class warfare on the part of liberals is like Wag the Dog.  Outsiders to limousine liberals do not understand this.  In contrast to Republicans  who don’t openly preach disdain for those who have, the liberal power brokers preach sacrifice and cry victim while secretly going home to maids, private schooling for their children, and obviously lobster, lobster and more lobster.

The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more. ” —Michelle Obama

I will give up my piece of the pie Michelle,  but only if you promise to give up your lobster.

Bullshit: It’s Not Just For Republicans Anymore August 8, 2010

As Democrats continue to put their best face on events, arguing, in fact that it is the Republicans that got us into this mess and it is gonna take them and only them to get us out, I wonder when did the good guys suddenly turn into the stupid bad guys?   When did the liberals become masters of the bullshit machine? Political battles within the Democratic camps has shown that the party is in the state of panic.  However, they still need a message.  When you don’t have a message and you’re house is not in order (thanks  First Lady) but you have guests coming over for dinner. You have to feed them something. What do you do? You give them a bullshit sandwich.

Can someone tell me is Barack Obama good at anything besides Pez dispensing liberal platitudes and divisive bullshit? Especially when he is backed into a corner?

President Obama flies Air Force One to Chicago on his birthday to campaign for yet another Illinois crook- Alexi Giannoulias, who is campaigning as a Democrat for Obama’s old Senate seat.  Obama raises over 1 million dollars in a day for Giannoulias.  Like Obama, Giannoulias is ” change we can believe in”:

Where is the change ?  Where is the little guy in this? Meanwhile little guys in Chicago oooh and ahhh over catching a glimpse of the chosen one riding through the city.  Like bobble heads “I saw him!!! Did you see him?”   “I got a picture with my iPhone!!!”

The First Lady and child are making headlines in Spain on vacation… again where is the little guy in all of this?

What’s wrong with letting some presidential cash flow to Jackson Hole, Wyoming or Mount Rushmore? How about a “stay-cation” ?   That would reflect your solidarity with the American people who voted for your husband.  I suppose they make organic bullshit burgers too.

How about making a campaign stop in the inner city of Chicago- you know where all of the black men are killing each other?  Any words or fundraisers for them?   Mr. Obama did you know that Chicago police are now riding three men in a car?

There are times when I am blown away when I consider that I once voted for this party without much question.  They represented “brown people”.  They represented women.  The poor and suffering and that was me- at the time.  Yes I am still black and a woman but I stopped being poor and suffering when I graduated from college.   That was when I began to wake up and smell the donkey shit.  Aside from being a black pro-choice woman, there was nothing in the liberal message that resonated with me.  A ten year stint in the great state of Texas proved to me that Republicans are not all a bunch of racists.  In fact, the conservatives I knew provided more positive outreach to their communities than any Democrat I had witnessed during my time in Chicago.

Texans lived relatively high quality lives as compared to Chicagoans.  No state taxes.  No taxes on food.

I can recall during my first Texas year stepping up to a Piggly Wiggly cashier and exclaiming over my 89 cents can of tuna fish costing exactly 89 cents.

“Honey, there is no tax on food here,” the cashier said to me. “Where have you been?”

I was in shock.  “…Chicago…The only time we don’t pay taxes on food is when we use food stamps.”

The cashier just gives me this blank stare.  I think she went home and prayed for me that night over her tax free meal of Frito Pie.

Afrocity just wondered if living in a Republican run state was so bad, why did I get to keep more of my hard earned money?  Oh, because the Republicans don’t care about the little guy. My mother learned this when she moved there and attempted to get on welfare without children and at age 54.  Texas told her to cut the bullshit and get to work.  You should have seen my mother’s face when the caseworker handed her a list of jobs- GUARANTEED JOBS.

“Um, err, I can’t work, ” my mother lied.  “I have a bad…knee… Can I get disability?”

The state of Texas tried to call BULLSHIT but mother found a liberal lawyer and  some quack doctor to claim that she was 35% disabled.  Back on foodstamps she went- happy as a government fed clam.  Beyond these incidents, there was much that occurred which persuaded me to switch parties but still I stayed on the jackass boat, aborting any signs of mutiny in the womb before it manifested itself at the voting booth.

I know, I know…How could you Afrocity?

But understand that bullshit is an acquired taste.  That is to say, if someone feeds you crap election year in and election year out, you only know… well…crap.   You become accustomed to the broken promises and pointing fingers game.  You accept your permanent place in the war of America’s needy versus America’s greedy.  Despite your inner brilliance- your wiser conscious plea to ask questions and get real answers, you continue to eat the plate of bullshit set before you.  Some like myself ate with small spoonfuls -drinking huge glasses of water between each swallow.  Others like my mother and most Obama supporters  put the feedbag on with gusto.

The day I woke up and took a much needed shower, was the day the bullshit became not a meal for my liberal friends but something to throw at me.

Friend: Afrocity how can you turn your back on everything the Democrats have done for black people”

Afrocity: Like………….

You see Afrocity does not play the bullshit game anymore.  Give the donkeys their breast cancer hued pink slip.



The Democrats do not have the answers and maybe the Republicans don’t either.  However, do not spin the liberal bullshit message that because the Republicans do not have all the answers or because President Bush got us into this mess,  the American people  should continue to support Obama and the current imbeciles in Washington.

No more.

Wake up zombies.  Stop drinking KoolAid.  Stop listening to this walking campaign slogan of a president you elected. The man does not have answers, he has more divisive rhetoric- NOTHING MORE.   To borrow from his analogy of America as a vehicle stuck in a ditch…How can Obama get you out of the ditch when he is in the car expecting you to push? Refuse or get in the way of his best friend- the rear view mirror, and he add you to the list of many to run over when the car gets started.

Wake up America and wipe the bullshit from your mouths.  It is time to make some changes to the menu.

Moonbat Monday: Tea Party Haters- Ugly and Amazing April 12, 2010

So much for the left wing being open, tolerant and understanding.

The right to free speech and assembly are American freedoms that the left seems to believe is only available to them. Why else would the Tea Party movement unnerve them so much to the point that they attempt to discredit it as a racist bunch of rednecks?  If you attend a Tea Party rally,  some skinhead is sure to be there just thinking the “N-word” .  Even if you are an African American Tea Party participant, you are simply invisible to the liberals.  No, No, there are no blacks in the Tea Party and someone is there about to say the “N-word”.  He/she  doesn’t have to say it but a liberal knows they are thinking it.  Unlike left wing protesters, Tea Party folks are hateful anti-Obama racists out to kill our president.

From I Own The World

Liberal moonbats are psychic clairvoyant mind readers you know.  Someone was thinking that awful word at the Tea Party. How else could you explain liberal claims of John Lewis being called racially derogatory remarks without there being any proof on tape? If John Lewis and the AFL-CIO head Richard Trumpka (aka union scum),  says racists are at Tea Party rallies then betcha by golly it must be true.

I love it!  Protesters of Tea Party protesters.  Andrew Breitbart just imagined those liberals throwing eggs at the Tea Party bus.  As if in a moonbat fever,  some liberals so badly want to discredit the Tea Party movement that they will stoop so low in the donkey cesspool to serve as Tea Party poseurs.

The blacks at the Tea Party rallies must be vampires because their image does not capture on liberal video tape.   All people of color love Obama right?  So this African American man who created a YOU TUBE video describing why blacks should NOT be Democrats is just some illusion?

Liberals just don’t get it.  Obama’s election is actually a blessing in disguise for conservatives.  With their golden ass made in God’s image now seated in the White House, their behavior has been on auto-pilot and without filters.  Now they have finally outed themselves as the most oppressive, racist, controlling and manipulative political party known to Americans. The peaceful liberal protest and shining happy people fighting for freedom of speech for all has been debunked. It is okay to hate a president if he is a Republican.



I have said to my PUMA sisters that you can waste your time attempting impossibly to save the Democrats from their own poison. They are a train wreck.  No longer what they once were, the Party of ASS is now only a shill for Obamabots and socialism. Drinking Kool Aid by the gallons, five swallows at a time without stopping to check out their reflection in the mirror of truth.  Dribblings of purple dye all over their mouths and shirts. They look absolutely and positively ugly and amazing.

Conservative Ladies Night On Fox News!!! January 13, 2010

From I Own the World

Uh-oh it is that time. Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are at it again. Sarah Palin made her debut as a Fox commentator on the O’Reilly Factor last night and fresh off the presses are Palin haters with remarkable mutation stories of her performance. From this article by Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik:

January 12, 2010

Sarah Palin’s Fox debut: Prime-time propaganda

Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly — the only question is how high the ratings will go.

What a pair and what an awful politicization of TV news.

O’Reilly, the highest rated host on cable news TV, introduced the newest star in the Fox News galaxy Tuesday night as a “news analyst.” If what Palin did in her debut is news analysis, I’m the governor of Alaska and I can see Russia from my backyard.

Zurawik’s  “Russia from my backyard” statement pretty much tells you where he is going with his critique.  Down the long and winding mudslinging  road of outdated and rehashed Tina Fey SNL Sarah Palin parody skits.  Wow, how creative and appealing to your readers. What an awful politicization of journalism, huh?Watch your readers slobber with Palin hating delight?  What the article suggests is more of the same liberal bashing and fine tooth combing of Palin.  She will never have a chance with these guys.  The article showcases the not so clever and unoriginal words of a so called TV and pop culture critic for the Baltimore Sun who writes about the “craziness of TV” though the crazy lens of liberal mainstream media.

The readers of the Baltimore Sun should be blessed that  Zurawik’s genius “Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an M.A. in specialized reporting (on popular culture) from the University of Wisconsin” deigned to take on the lowly subject of Sarah Palin.

After all Sarah Palin is an insignificant political is a nobody… right?

Zurawik is such the bigger person, not former governor of Alaska with the powers of persuasion to rally hundreds of thousands, raise five children including one who is special needs, and land a contract with the nation’s most highly rated cable news channel.  I will spare you Zurawik’s blow by blow account of Palin’s conversation with O’Reilly and let you see and hear the exchange as it appeared on Fox News:

Zurawik continues:

“In the language of television, that exchange was a perfect interview pas de deux, with Palin sounding intelligent and reasonable with all the “perhaps-es” and the “quites,” while O’Reilly deftly introduced the outrageous notion that Pelosi is “crazy” — and somehow made it seem like it is a widely held belief.

What a cart and pony show. O’Reilly is a TV master, Palin’s a TV player, and together they are going to bring orgiastic TV delight to right-wing viewers. I think I actually heard Nielsen People Meters exploding on TV sets in the more affluent suburbs of Baltimore last night when these two really got going.

I will spare you the scenario of O’Reilly teeing up old sad sack Harry Reid so that Palin could talk about her lifelong commitment to “diversity” and how indefensible she found Reid’s comments about the color of Obama’s skin.”

Really Mr. Zurawik?  You will “spare us that”? Gee why? Could it be because Harry Reid’s comments were indefensible? Oh I forgot Harry Reid is a Democrat, so lets just hold our hope n’ change noses in the air while that big smelly liberal hypocrisy fart bomb dissipates into see no liberal evil, hear no liberal evil la la land.

Nah, he ain't racist. He's my liberal brutha.

“I will also spare you the show-trial-like give-and-take play acting they did with O’Reilly quoting or replaying bad things that were said about Palin on “60 Minutes” so that she could call them “b.s.” or label them one-by-one a “lie” and then try to rewrite what she said — just as she did in her book “Going Rogue.”

I must briefly mention, however, the way O’Reilly helped her promote a Tea Party event at which she will be the featured speaker — and the way he tried to defend her receiving payment for the appearance. I must because I really hate it when O’Reilly uses TV this way to promote partisan events.

I will also share what she had to say about Obama’s sinking poll numbers: “Of course, they’re sinking.  It was just a matter of time before more of that reflection of the people’s uncomfortableness that they feel towards this administration is manifesting in these poll numbers,” she said. “… There is an obvious disconnect between President Obama and the White House, what they are doing to our economy and what they are doing in terms of not allowing Americans to feel as safe as we had felt…”

I forgot how Palin speaks in a grammar and syntax unlike anyone else on this planet, but you get the idea. And I’ll tell you what: In a protected TV environment like the one Fox and O’Reilly skillfully provided for her Tuesday night, I think she could be a red-hot ratings winner. And the country and our political conversation are going to be the poorer for it.

I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010. This is not news analysis. This is TV as political propaganda.”

Ah, beware of the conservative sirens of Fox News. Flashing their shiny hair and pro-life smiles. Gunning for your liberal ways.  How dare FOX make you watch them.  How dare they! You are just minding your own business reading Mother Jones magazine, sitting on your organic milk crates stolen from the Trader Joe’s,  munching on dehydrated apricots and hemp granola, just minding your own business when something compels you to turn on FOX News and watch Sarah Palin. Oh, God pray to Saint Olbermann and Matthews.

I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010″

Now that is hilarious. Sarah Palin obviously makes Zurawik have nightmares.

Concerning her appearance on O’Reilly, it was Sarah Palin’s first outing as a commentator on FOX News. O’Reilly was doing more of an orientation in my view. The same thing he did with John Stossel and Lou Dobbs when they were on his show.   O’Reilly is not the only FOX News venue Palin will appear on, so rest easy, you will have plenty of hate candy to chew on in all sorts of formats while viewing your FOX favorites.

Sarah and Sean.

Sarah and Greta.

Sarah and Chris Wallace.

Sarah with Fox N’ Friends.

Sarah sitting on Charles Krauthammer’s lap…

In fact she will appear on the Glenn Beck Program this afternoon.  Don’t forget to bring your Obama pillow and copy of Strunk and White. You must use that PhD. in American Studies for something besides maintaining tenure at the Baltimore Sun.

And if you Palin haters still have a  size extra small condom wrapper left, you may be interested in Ann Coulter’s slap down of Al Sharpton on Hannity which also aired Tuesday night.  Of course, as the honorable mouthpiece for the entire black community, Rev. Sharpton’s credibility’s rating is in negative digits but someone please archive this interview so we can tell him to shut the hell up the next time he brings up a racist cartoon or white person walking by a black church with a bucket of fried chicken in the near future.

And no liberal politicians, it is not okay to only call Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev.  Jesse Jackson the next time a racist flag is pinned on on the tail of a DNC jackass. YOU MUST CALL OR TEXT EVERY BLACK PERSON IN AMERICA.  What if I don’t attend their church? How will you know what I am thinking? How will you know that I have accepted your empty apology?

Blackhanded Compliments: Plenty of Room at the Shelter for Battered Liberals January 12, 2010

Have you ever been slapped in the face by the most wonderful compliment?

There you were minding your own business and BOOM. Ka-pow !!!  You were bitch slapped with a compliment. It was so beautiful and star appeared before your eyes.  You were so mesmerized by its sheer generosity that you hardly noticed the black eye you had the next morning.

Sad and shameful is the black liberal attempt to drive home the point that Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) is on the right side of history.

I recall with some crystal clear clarity that it was a year ago when the liberals were in an uproar over comments which alluded to Barack Obama as the “Magic Negro”.

The hunt for racists continued with Rev Al Sharpton’s tirade against the monkey cartoon which appeared in the New York Post.

Now as Democrats rush to squash media attention on Harry Reid’s unfortunate words, this latest chapter in liberal hypocrisy only serves as a further demonstration in the danger of identity politics. Some group is always going to get hurt while hoping their needs will be met. When hurt does occur, they keep coming back for more and more and more.

Black America has come to accept the worse from the Democratic Party.   Like a secret society, liberals like Harry Reid can say that our president is the “Magic Negro” .  That is okay because Harry is down with our history and he is one of our peeps.   This characteristic of African Americans is in keeping with the unspoken rule that only blacks can call other blacks the “N-word”.

“What’s up my nigga?”

Harry Reid’s comment was certainly welcome by the liberals as a compliment…

My, my, my the topsy turvy definitions of racism we weave.  From my first hearing of the Harry Reid light skinned comments, I immediately recognized them as racist which fall into the “well meaning white people” category.  Only someone who is arrogant, ignorant or both would perceive Reid’s comments as a compliment.  I should know, I was one of those people. I was ignorant.  During a work situation, in which a Caucasian colleague was assessing my potential, I was referred to as “articulate” Being the daughter of a woman possessing only a GED and a monthly welfare check, I smiled and lapped up my “compliment” Afrocity had arrived.

A white person said I was articulate.

I was not ghetto like the lessor blacks.

I am educated. I have a masters degree damn it and white people notice me. I am sorta young (ahem), gifted and black!!!

Articulate Afrocity was queen of the mainstream white world!!!!  Until a colleague of color informed me of my erroneous black thought patterns.

“Afrocity,” she implored. “That was not a compliment. It implies that you speak well for a black woman while other blacks are ignorant hood rats. It was a pat on the back for being educated- something that every person should be.”

My colleague’s version made perfect sense.  I felt like an idiot.  Selfish with the cocaine like powder of compliment whoring all over my mouth.

From the " Far Side"

She continued, “Think about it. Do you ever hear white people telling other white people that they are articulate?”

Good point. I never ever heard a white person give that particular compliment to anyone except when referring to a person of color.  Shame continued to grip me as I recalled every moment that I did not correct someone for giving me compliments such as the following:

“Afrocity, I am so glad that you are not like other black people. You don’t sound ghetto.”

“Why do you act like a white person?”

“Afrocity is black but I don’t think she knows it.”

“You are the only black person I can be friends with because you don’t act like a nigger.”

“Afrocity, you are proof that all blacks need is a good education and to stop acting black.”

“How come your skin color is so nice and not all black and chalky?”

“Afrocity when I call someone a nigger, I don’t mean you because you are special and different- not like other blacks”

Yes, readers these are all actual statements made to me during my life. Statements in which I was somewhat inclined to speak out against but remained silent because after all they were complimenting me. I was different from other black folk. A treasure among whites who were tired of hearing about black on black crime, teenage pregnancy, and the rising high school drop out rates among black youth.  I was a “Magic Negro”.

In each case, the compliment giver was someone who like Harry Reid, was “on the right side of history”.

All except one, was a liberal Democrat. They stood alongside me at Bill Clinton rally’s.  I was their only black friend and that made me special.  I was teaching them silently that blacks were not all alike.

I was wrong.

Now I know better. What I do not understand is why President Barack Obama does not know better.

When one is abused and so used to hearing derogatory comments, sometimes we are not aware when we are being verbally beat down.  Someone is kind to you.  They give you food and shelter. Nevermind if they step on your tail from time to time. They did not mean it. They are on the right side of your history.  You defend them when they deserve a sharp tongue, chastising them and saying they cannot and should not speak to you in that manner.

You lash out at the likes of GOP chairman Michael Steel.  “That brutha is not with the program. Republicans are not on the right side of history.”

Liberal women are no stranger to battered liberal syndrome. Sarah Palin was a shock to their culture of brow beating conservatives for sexism while turning the other cheek when such transgressions were made by liberal men like Bill “Bubba” Clinton. Nevermind that your “on the right side” of feminist history Svengali master DNC was kicking the shit out of Hillary Clinton when she ran against Barack Obama during the primaries. You dressed your wounds in laughs at lipstick on a pig comments.

Liberals when will you ever learn that racism means racism and sexism means sexism.

Understand the difference between party loyalty and co-dependency.

Start a  publicity campaign against  “Silence of the Libs”.  Help conservatives and liberals fight racism and sexism.

Sunday Soliloquy: “Better to starve free than be a fat slave” January 10, 2010

In keeping with Senator Harry Reid’s “unfortunate comment”  concerning Barack Obama… I would like to begin my Sunday Soliloquy by saying – tis I, Afrocity, your favorite medium skin toned articulate Negro conservative blogger.

I am just keeping things real here. After all I do possess a masters degree and that qualifies me as a well spoken Negro. My conservative acquaintances say that to me all of the time you know. Not true. The only time I have been labeled as articulate has been by a liberal who was praising me for doing what all people should do–speaking well.  And it is good to know that Harry Reid believes that our president is a well spoken Negro- an articulate boy.

From this article in the Chicago Tribune:

Obama accepts Reid’s apology for ‘unfortunate comment,’ says ‘the book is closed’ on matter

Associated Press Writer

January 10, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP)Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid apologized on Saturday for saying the race of Barack Obama — whom he described as a “light skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one” — would help rather than hurt his eventual presidential bid.

Obama quickly accepted, saying “As far as I am concerned, the book is closed.” Reid, facing a tough re-election bid this year, spent the day telephoning civil rights leaders and fellow Democrats in hopes of mitigating the political damage.

The revelations about Reid’s 2008 comments were included in the book “Game Change” by Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin and New York magazine’s John Heilemann. The behind-the-scenes look at the 2008 campaign that elevated Obama to the White House is based on the writers’ interviews with more than 200 sources, most of whom were granted anonymity and thus much of the material could not be immediately corroborated.

The Democrats do so much for women and minorities that we decided that the male restrooms at the next DNC convention should display a suitable decor.

Of course, Obama accepted Senator Reid’s apology.  Dirty Harry could never be a racist. Harry was not “acting stupidly”.  Harry does not deserve a  Beer Summit . Harry was the only guy to call the GOP out on their slavery health care plan. Harry is a Democrat so he must love black people.

Ah, the Democratic Party. Embellished with the hues and textures of the American multi-racial landscape. Historic condemners of the institution known as slavery…NOT…That was actually the Republicans. Ah, who cares? That was then this is now.  Let’s not dwell on  the Democrats and their  past transgressions against African Americans.  So what if the Klu Klux Klan’s founding members were firmly rooted in the Democratic Party and Woodrow Wilson was one of  the most racist presidents ever. That is all erased and forgiven now.

There is a 2010 DNC special on smoked black butt. Organic and Corn Fed. No Hormones used. Killed playing classical music in the background.

The Democrats embrace such underprivileged forms as women and blacks, gays and transgendered.  A regular Mother Jones personified by introducing civil rights legislation during the 1950’s and 60’s …Well that is not exactly true.

From this post on Black and Right.com

“Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws… On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight.”

Picturesque are the living memories of liberal acceptance. Democrats skipping hand and hand through the bohemian streets of New York’s Upper Westside, spitting obscenities at conservative Palin supporters marching through.

Peace and love and happiness for all. I thank God …ooops I mean Allah for the Democrats who transformed the slave shipwrecked lives of my people. They think so much of us.

I thank Senator Reid for challenging the standard interpretation of a token. Before learning of his comments about light-skinned Barack Obama, we African American conservatives believed that only Republicans of color would benefit from being labeled as partisan tokens and Uncle Tom’s. It is good to see that Democrats believe in equal opportunity tokenism too. I knew they would. With remarkable clarity, Democrats continue to show redneck Republican bigots how elite liberal culture can institute real “hope and change”.

What a relief that the fight against closeted tokenism is now moving more or less from the right to the left side of the political spectrum. And of course as demonstrated by this comment from a Chicago Tribune reader, most liberals agree:

I read the remarks twice and cannot understand why the apology was necessary. There was nothing untruthful or deragatory in his remarks. He was making a political assessment of the president’s description and traits in the context of image as a candidate – no ethnic slurs or slang names. “

“I am tired of having to tiptoe around black people.

There you have it. Thanks to liberals we are officially in the midst of “post-racial America”.
