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

Diversity Fatigue Friday: The Silent Minority May 15, 2009


Liberals say if you are black and a Republican you MUST live at the cabin.

You had better tell Uncle Tom to save a place at the table for Afrocity. According to the liberals, I am coming home.

Definitions of Uncle Tom at Urban Dictionary

1.     Uncle Tom

Uncle Tom is a term used by black people to try to convince other black people that working, education, living well, and setting a good example for their children is selling out.
“De Shawn got a job? At Ameritech? He’s a Tom”

2. Uncle Tom:

A black man who will do anything to stay in good standing with “the white man” including betray his own people
Leroy is such an Uncle Tom; he told the boss I took a 2 hour lunch; I had to go see my baby momma

3.Uncle Tom :

Theatrical productions of Uncle Tom’s Cabin played throughout the nadir (post Civil War and Reconstruction); but since the novel’s indictment of slavery was no longer congenial to an increasingly white society, rewrites changed Uncle Tom from a martyr who gave his life to protect the people into a sentimental dope who was loyal to kindly masters. In the black community, Uncle Tom eventually came to mean an African American who sells out his people’s interests and still does today. In my opinion the phrase “uncle tom” should not be used today by black people because it degrades the status of a man who wasn’t in fact a sell out but a hero who’s name should be used with reverence not disgrace.
Uncle tom, a martyr who should be admired til the end of time.

4.Uncle Tom:

The real uncle tom was a black man born into slavery who gave his life to protect other slaves. when his story was turned into a movie, the writers re-worked the script making uncle tom’s character the opposite; a slave who was loyal to his master. unfortunately, this has become the most commonly known image of uncle tom. because of the film, the term “uncle tom” has become synonomous with “sellout”, degrading the real uncle tom. so once again, the white man has successfully managed to teach blacks an incorrect, caucasion-favoring version of history.
person 1: Chris told the boss about you stealing office supplies.
person 2: What! I knew that ass-kissin uncle tom would say something.
person 1: He’s not an uncle tom.
person 2: Yeah, whatever.

5. Uncle Tom:

This is a black person, who acts like an adult and has over a fifth grade education. Usually they end up getting shot by a member of their own race for speaking proper English and having a job that pays well that does not involve illegal drugs.
Dam, nigga. Dat Martin Luther King be an Uncle Tom. Fuck dat nigga and dat nigga Malcolm X. I be bustin a cap in any niggaz that be tryin to improves the lifes of de black peeple.

Yesterday at Autographed Letter Signed we read about Mel Maguire a gay conservative and blogger at Mel explained that she has faced more persecution from liberal gays than she ever has from straight conservatives. I posted Mel’s story because not only is she brilliant and gifted, but she is also just another example of a Democrat’s worst nightmare- a member of group designated by liberals as so called helpless victims that is not a liberal. You know African Americans and other ethnic groups, gays and lesbians, Hispanics, disabled persons, women. If you fall into any of these groups you are a victim and there is no place for conservatism or the Republican Party in your life.

Like gays, recognizing that you are beholden to the Democratic party is an integral part of black life. I battled my mother on many issues including her dependence on welfare and belief that the government owes us something.  What was wrong with me? When Afrocity was baking someone must have switched a few ingredients:

Recipe for Liberal Afrocity

10 cups of melanin

2 pounds of courage

3 tsps of soul

5 tbsp of faith

1 cup of compassion

3 drops of snark

1 heart of gold

1 pinch of creativity

2 arms filled with love

4 teeny pinches of self-reliance (use sparingly)

8 drops of liberalism as usual mom did not check to see what she needed to bake the cake.

Negative portrayal of Ron Christie, an African American conservative. Notice the mocking of Ron's crossed eyes

Mom shrugs shoulders and adds extra self-reliance to make up for it. Oh hell, she only has a half cup of compassion. Maybe this pragmatism stuff will do just as well.

Throw her in the oven, bake for 2 hours until golden brown.  Let cool. Hmmm this Afrocity is alright but why does she keep telling me to find a job and missing the deadlines for minority scholarships.

Sorry mom, you’ve been PUNKED. Some serious errors have crept into the test kitchen. She should have known better yet she still deliberately pushed me to be a Democrat. Any black who is not a Democrat is an UNCLE TOM.

Condi Rice- Uncle Tom or Auntie Thomasina

Colin Powell -Uncle Tom

Clarence Thomas- Uncle Tom

They don’t call them the three C’s for nothing

RNC Chairman Michael Steele- Uncle Tom

Alan Keyes- Uncle Tom

Larry Elder-Uncle Tom

You ever notice how the presence of African Americans in the Republican party somehow brings out the racists on the left.  Don’t believe me? Take a look at this

Where is the NAACP? Curiously if you are black and a Republican no one gives a damn about you if you are discriminated against. You lost that right when you became GOP. It is also assumed by liberals that you do nothing to help other minorities. As a black Republican, of course I am self-loathing and hate other blacks. I soak in Clorox every day you know.  I often get “I didn’t know that you are a conservative Afrocity.”  I think to myself did you ever ask me?

When I was a Democrat, I never had anyone say “Oh, I didn’t know that you are  liberal Afrocity.  What’s up with that?

The Democrats have become adept at fooling minorities into believing that they are the party of the people. Equality for all.  Blacks agree, but their assessment is based largely on the fact that liberals delve out more government aid which in my opinion is a deterrent to self-reliance. Those same Democrats also tax the shit out of those of us that work for a living. Sometimes we are even called “uppity”  and unappreciative especially if we are conservative. We must have all Caucasian friends. As a black Republican I am transgressing my predetermined racial norms, thereby surrendering my blackness. Black Republicans are verbally attacked and marginalized in the media as sell outs.

But isn’t that racist? Isn’t it racist that a party would believe that I am helpless? That I need government imposed quotas to get a job? That my skin color makes me a Democrat by default?

Isn't Barack Obama the man that actually bowed to someone that was not African American?

Condi Rice according to Wiki:Rice was the first black woman, second African American (after her predecessor Colin Powell, who served from 2001 to 2005), and the second woman (after Madeleine Albright, who served from 1997 to 2001 in the Clinton Administration) to serve as Secretary of State.

Gee, who would have thought that the Republicans were responsible for the first male and female African American Secretary of State. The first African American congressmen in both the reconstruction and post reconstruction were Republicans.

Wiki:In 1928, Oscar De Priest won the 1st Congressional District of Illinois (the South Side of Chicago) as a Republican, becoming the first black Congressman of the modern era. DePriest was also the last black Republican in the House for 56 years.Edward William Brooke, III (born October 26, 1919), is an American politician and was the first African American to be elected by popular vote to the United States Senate when he was elected as a Republican from Massachusetts in 1966.

By now we have all seen the Wanda Sykes footage from last week’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. How many times did she say Obama was the first black president? Then Obama gets up and takes shots at Michael Steele:

Later Michael Steele responds and proves that he has more class and is a good sport on top of it all.

I wonder if Michael Steele puts Grey Poupon on his hamburger.

Oh well off to Uncle Tom I go. I will leave you with another great video from Alfonzo Rachel aka Zonation.

Postcards from the Political Edge: Greetings from the Sea of “Change”

Vintage linen postcard--Same Old Moon

Vintage linen postcard--Same Old Moon

As I was watching the news this morning, I could not help but wonder if Washington D.C. or the American presidency will ever be quite the same again. Usually I am not one that is given to making sweeping generalizations. I am also not saying that everything should remain the same in Washington. Of course every president brings “change”. Change is a good thing. Disaster is not. There are some disturbing conditions emerging from Obama’s sea of change. With no able seamen on deck, I am not sure that America can stay afloat much longer. Washington’s most socially progressive experiment is going down fast and the result may be the liquidation of American values.

Washington Postcard

For those who believed that Obama would be a refreshing change from the previous 8 years, I would hope that the “blame it on Bush” approach is wearing thin. With his usual flair for self-aggrandizement, all paths lead back to Barack Obama and he is politically overplaying his hand.  What was most interesting to me as  I flipped between Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC (ick) is the media agenda, especially from the left and the persistent sense of tampered memory that will shape Obama’s narrative. This media weathering is downright painful to watch. Concerning the Nancy Pelosi debacle, Rachel Maddow had a guest speaker on last night spewing connotations of political warfare. Of course everything is the fault of the Republicans. They made Nancy lie.  Of all the networks, MSMBC is by far one of America’s most ardent liberal revivalists. Keith  Blabberman and his lapdogs attempt to recapture the magic of Kennedy’s Camelot by restoring fashion, pulchritude and misogyny in their coverage of anything Obama.

During the past decade we have witnessed the decaying of political integrity. Yes 10 years –“I did not have sexual relations with that woman” .  Remember that?  We have also witnessed the decaying of journalistic integrity. Just take a look at any “Sideshow Rob” Gibbs press conference. Every briefing is a farce. A grammar school debate team could fair better than that guy.   Nancy Pelosi’s Monday press conference “I did not lie” blah, blah blah, was far from convincing. Forget Camelot. It is gone forever. You can cling to that first edition of Profiles in Courage all you want. Camelot will never return. At the present moment there are things that should be much more paramount than our desire to return to the glorious days of Kennedy land.

This goes for you too my fellow Republicans. Reagan is dead. What was is was and we need to move the fuck on. There is much work to be done. Get my drift?

by George Will
WASHINGTON — Anyone, said T.S. Eliot, could carve a goose, were it not for the bones. And anyone could govern as boldly as their whims decreed, were it not for the skeletal structure that keeps civil society civil — the rule of law. The Obama administration is bold. It also is careless regarding constitutional values and is acquiring a tincture of lawlessness…

Such a federal ukase (the word derives from czarist Russia; how appropriate) to a state legislature is a sign of the administration’s dependency agenda — maximizing the number of people and institutions dependent on the federal government. For the first time, neither sales nor property nor income taxes are the largest source of money for state and local governments. The federal government is.

The SEIU says the cuts violate contracts negotiated with counties. California officials say the state required the contracts to contain clauses allowing pay to be reduced if state funding is.

Anyway, the Obama administration, judging by its cavalier disregard of contracts between Chrysler and some of the lenders it sought money from, thinks contracts are written on water. The administration proposes that Chrysler’s secured creditors get 28 cents per dollar on the $7 billion owed to them, but that the United Auto Workers union get 43 cents per dollar on its $11 billion in claims — and 55 percent of the company. This, even though the secured creditors’ contracts supposedly guaranteed them better standing than the union.

This is not gross, unambiguous lawlessness of the Nixonian sort — burglaries, abuse of the IRS and FBI, etc. — but it is uncomfortably close to an abuse of power that perhaps gave Nixon ideas: When in 1962 the steel industry raised prices, President Kennedy had a tantrum and his administration leaked rumors that the IRS would conduct audits of steel executives, and sent FBI agents on pre-dawn visits to the homes of journalists who covered the steel industry, ostensibly to further a legitimate investigation.

Baroque Obama-Our New Founding Father

Baroque Obama-Our New Founding Father

Will is correct, the outright socialization of America can be glimpsed in several recent examples: the auto industry;the banking and finance industry; and soon the health care industry. Are any eyebrows raised?  As Americans, these examples should make it clear to us that by the second half of Obama’s first term, the freedoms and values of our country will sink gently into the sea of change. When I say values, I am not speaking of gay marriage which I am for, or pro-choice legislation which I support. I am not speaking about religious values but rather our American values and traditions that are more secular in nature. I am speaking about traditions which do not include our being distantly cooler towards allies such as Great Britain and Israel, while cowering to historical enemies and threats to our safety.

When we hear President Obama lecture us about the true intentions of our founding fathers, does he know that they were actually all strong advocates of republican values?

Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, George Washington, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. Even Abraham Lincoln held Republican values. Values that when applied correctly (Not the Bush/Cheney way) foster liberty and the rejection of government interference.

Forget about the historic moment and the images of two little black girls see sawing on the White House lawn. We have to clean up the poop deck.

Will continues:

The Obama administration’s agenda of maximizing dependency involves political favoritism cloaked in the raiment of “economic planning” and “social justice” that somehow produce results superior to what markets produce when freedom allows merit to manifest itself, and incompetence to fail. The administration’s central activity — the political allocation of wealth and opportunity — is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption.

As has been mentioned the “blame it on Bush” defense is wearing thin. During the Pelosi press conference, the media was not focusing attention on her obvious stammering and untruths. The story became “Oh I hate to see poor Nancy go through this”. Remember that these were the same journalists that called Hillary Clinton names throughout the Democratic Primary. How dare Hillary cry tears of frustration in New Hampshire? But poor Nancy is being attacked by the big bad Republicans. Nancy Pelosi, the pariah of botox bipartisanship. The reality is that “poor Nancy” complicates things for herself even more by calling the CIA a liar. I am sure they will offer negation and she will be challenged. Get ready Nancy and I hope you’ve got back up because Barack Obama is not really known for throwing out life preservers to Obamabots gone overboard.

Charles Krauthammer agrees:
