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

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”.

Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL) criticizes Democrat filibuster against 1964 Civil Rights Act, calls on Democrats to stop opposing racial equality. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson relied on Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, the Republican leader from Illinois, to get the Act passed.

    Well said, my sister. Dingy Harry is certifiable, and we all know that. Just give him enough rope and he’ll hang himself. Hmm, he may have done it already.

    This whole spectacle is pathetic to witness.

    Peace and respect.

    Great commentary and sad examples. Isn’t it strange to find liberals both disgusting and hillarious? The Barbara Boxer/Mr. Alford (BCC) exchange never gets old, what a mental midget she is.

    Great words, Afrocity! I used to hate Sundays but now that I have your Sunday Soliloquy to look forward to, Sunday’s aren’t so bad.

    You nailed it. I can’t believe that crap came out of Reid’s mouth! On the other hand, I can’t believe Obama lectured a mostly black audience about not being lazy and feeding their kid’s Popeye’s fried chicken for breakfast. But heaven forbid anybody try to point out that hopium might be a fairytale. That would be racist.

    Mr. Reid’s apology to Obama, “I’m sorry boy, I didn’t mean to make it sound like you were a token”

    Great post, AC. Until people simply stop looking at skin color altogether, we will never be truly post racial. For years I have been refusing to answer the race question on all questionares and applications. I work for a company that does a significant amount of work for various local, state and federal agencies. As a result they have to be an “Equal Opportunity Employer”. That means that when they fill a position they can’t just hire someone that is recommended or that comes in looking for work. they have to advertise the position in order to give minorities the opportunity to apply. I don’t have an issue with that, really. What I do have an issue with is that it is not good enough for them to advertise in the two largest papers in the state. They are required to advertise in “minority” publications. Apparently minorities are capable of reading The Hartford Courant or the New Haven Register. Ridiculous.

    Here’s the entire exchange:

    RUSSERT: Let me turn to judicial nominations. Again, Harry Reid on National Public Radio, Nov. 19: “If they” — the Bush White House — “for example, gave us Clarence Thomas as chief justice, I personally feel that would be wrong. If they give us Antonin Scalia, that’s a little different question. I may not agree with some of his opinions, but I agree with the brilliance of his mind.”

    RUSSERT: Could you support Antonin Scalia to be chief justice of the Supreme Court?

    REID: If he can overcome the ethics problems that have arisen since he was selected as a justice of the Supreme Court. And those ethics problems –you’ve talked about them; every people talk — every reporter’s talked about them in town — where he took trips that were probably not in keeping with the code of judicial ethics. So we have to get over this. I cannot dispute the fact, as I have said, that this is one smart guy. And I disagree with many of the results that he arrives at, but his reason for arriving at those results are very hard to dispute. So —

    RUSSERT: Why couldn’t you accept Clarence Thomas?

    REID: I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written. I don’t — I just don’t think that he’s done a good job as a Supreme Court justice.

    That’s not Mississippi, or Jim Crow. That’s not the Dixiecrats or segregationists. That is race in America, modern-day.

    In an interview in 2008, I asked Thomas why people continue to embrace this grossly false storyline — why they sell him short, understate his intellect — and why they persistently believe he merely has “followed” Scalia, when in fact there’s absolutely no basis for that.

    “Give me a break. I mean this is part of the — you know, the black guy is supposed to follow somebody white. We know that,” Thomas told me. “Come on, we know the story behind that. I mean there’s no need to sort of tip-toe around that … The story line was that, well I couldn’t be doing this myself, he must be doing it for me because I’m black. That’s obvious. Again, I go back to my point. Who were the real bigots? It’s obvious.”

    But why no uproar, I asked. Why no outcry?

    “People feel free to say about me what they think about lots of blacks,” Thomas told me. “Because of the heterodox views I’ve taken, they have license to say it about me with impunity.”

    Or put another way: In Harry Reid’s worldview, Clarence Thomas isn’t the “right” kind of black guy.

  10. FurryOldGuyJeans Says:

    Once again Dems shows their cries of racism thrown at their opponents are only a species of projection, not truth.

  11. Buttered Says:

    Thank you for the info from the “Black and Right” web site.

    I didn’t know almost all of that.

    I’ll have to check out “Black and Right.”

  12. Boots Says:

    It’s okay to attack Clarence Thomas in the most vile way possible (as he said back during his confirmation hearings, he was subjected to a “high tech lynching”), because he’s a black man who holds conservative views. Same with Sarah Palin, it’s okay to attack her (and her children!) in the most vile way possible, because she’s a woman who holds conservative views.

    Liberals have this mindset that anyone who doesn’t think like them obviously can’t think at all. So that makes the other person stupid.
