A Hit Dog will Bark a.k.a. Liberal Reactionaryism

It's really funny.

All people like me have done is give the white liberal blogosphere a friendly reminder that African-Americans still exist in this country and that we as a whole still support President Obama, and you accuse us of calling you racists.

People like me are letting you know it's not the "calling President Obama on his shit" that we have an issue with. It's the "painting his entire presidency as shit" that we have issues with, and you accuse us of calling you racists.

People like me are letting you know that we don't appreciate how the "critiques" of Obama and his supporters from the left in recent months have turned nastier, more personal, and more dehumanizing. No different from the crap coming from the other side, and you accuse us of calling you racists.

People like me are warning you that primarying the first African-American president will not sit well with the vast majority of the most loyal voting block of the Democratic party. Not because we're fixated on the fact that he's African American, but you guys have yet to give a reason for not supporting him that can't be summarized as "He didn't do what I wanted him to do in the way and time I wanted him to do it", and you accuse us of calling you racists.

People like me, whenever you point to some Black guy like Clarence Jones, why supports a primary, as proof that it wouldn't be racial, we point you to a Black guy that claim African-Americans were better off under segregation. So by your logic, that must mean Jim Crow was just fine, and you accuse us of calling you racists.

Rather than worrying about whether someone is calling you a racist, why don't you wonder what would happen to your agenda if the most loyal Democratic voting block was no longer on your side. Why don't you think about the fact that at no time in recent history have you been able to get a majority of White Americans on to your cause.

How about concentrating your anger and frustrations on the true problem and obstacles of the progressive movement. Republicans and the broken Senate. Rather than waiting for the president to give you feel-good, comfort food, ideologically rhetoric, how about helping to organize progressive offices in Red States for the long term goal of selling progressive causes in these areas.

That's all.

Hey Liberals, remember Black People?

Here, let me help you refresh your memory.

Now that I've done so, here's a few fun facts about African Americans (aka black people):

1) We come in all shapes and colors

2) We are the most loyal Democratic voting block in the party.

3) President Obama happens to be an African American. In fact, he is the first African-American president.

4) A whopping 90% African-Americans approve of the job President Obama doing.

and finally....

The plurality of African-Americans are getting fed up at watching a bunch whiny white liberals trash and disrespect this president in every imaginable way simply because he has become the liberal you fantasized him to be.

For those of you who think you can primary the first African-American president and African-Americans will just be a-ok with it, ask yourself this question:

When was the last time a Democratic/Liberal presidential candidate wow without getting the lion's share of African American support?

Can't remember that far back? Didn't think you could. In fact, no democratic president in the last 40 years has ever won without it.

A Primary Challenge of Obama from the left will be the Biggest Display of Liberal Racism Ever

If disgruntled liberals who talk about primarying Obama are really serious, they better be prepared for what a serious challenger to the president will have to do.

Said challenger will have to be white (notice all the names thrown around are white men and woman).

President Obama has an 90% approval rating among African Americans. That number has never dropped below 85% at any time during his presidency. Barring some cataclysmic event, any serious primary challenger of Obama from the left will have to realize that African Americans aren't going anywhere.

So that serious challenger of Obama from the left will have no choice but to try to win over as many white liberals as possible, even if that mean marginalizing or even suppressing black voters. In other words, they will have to engage in the “Southern Strategy: Liberal Edition”. Such a run will make the racism that occur in the 2008 Democratic primary look like Sesame Street. Only this time, the racism will be condoned by Liberals.

And let's all this occurs and the primary challenger ends up winning, the supporters of that challenger will want to go “Okay, now let's put this behind us, let bygones be bygones, and come together to win the general”. It will be at this point where you will find out what the loudest “Fuck You” ever heard sounds like. It will also be at this point where Liberal will be reminded that they can't win a fucking pie-eating contest without African American support.

So when the Republican Candidate wins, in very much the way gays blamed black people for Prop 8 passing in California, white liberals will blame blacks for costing them the electing. It will be at this point they will find out what the second-loudest “Fuck You” sounds like.

So it's time to ask these disgruntled liberals if this is the road they want to take.

Fighting Against Hypocrisy from Both Side: A Reintroduction

I live in Houston, Texas

I am a college instructor, and I am a founder of a start-up entertainment software company.

While I don't adhere to any political ideology, as I think all ideology is garbage, I am a progressive.

and most importantly....

I am a proud, PROUD Barack Hussein Obama supporter. I was a proud supporter when he introduced himself to the national stage in 2004, and barring some cataclysmic event, will continue to support him after he leaves office (which I'm hoping is January 2017)

For those who may be coming here for the first time, you'll notice a huge gap from when I posted here last (a year and a half to be precise). My busy schedule didn't really allow me the time to maintain this blog, so I chose to simply post my thoughts on the more established "progressive" blogs. (I'll explain why I have "progressive" in quotes shortly).

However, a series of events have led me to reopen and make a serious effort to create and maintain my blog:

Literally since November 5, 2008, the Republicans and the RWWB (Right Wing Wind Bags) have been working overtime and have been spending millions of dollars to see to it the Obama presidency goes down in flames with no accomplishments to show for it. But, of course, that was to be expected.

What was not expected was for significant portions of the left to be working just as hard, and in some cases harder, to accomplish the same goal as the other side. For months, I have noticed what seemed to be a calculated effort by some on the far right to push the narrative that Obama has not done anything progressive since being in office, which for anyone who actually do research know is pure, Grade-A bullshit. And after the 2010 midterm election, the push has gotten significantly harder to the point that now Obama is "weak", "dangerous", "stupid", and all coming from his so-called base.

I have numerous ideas on why they would do this, but the "why" is not really important at this time. What is important is that these people represent, at most, 15% of liberal/progressives in this country. Yet they're the ones who get the attention in the media, thus giving the illusion that they represent all of us.

Therefore, I think it's time for 85 percenters to make their voices heard. It has started with one blogger that goes by the name blackwaterdog. She used to post photodiaries of Obama at Dkos along with positive news stories. These news stories, you would think, would be posted all over the left blogosphere. Instead, it is seen as "propaganda" that must be eliminated. Yes, the left have told the lie so much they're actually starting to believe it themselves. So she left Dkos and create her own blog. And now a prominent and establish blogger/writer for an online publication has felt the need to attack BWD for the crime of showing Obama in a positive light. This has suddenly become a heresy to the disgruntled left.

It is officially a civil war for the hearts and minds of the progressive movement. The extreme left vying to take over the democratic party in the same way as the extreme right has taken over the republican party. if successful would be a total disaster for the progressive movement as "Principles" over progress would be the law of the land.

I'm reopening this blog because the fight has started, and I have decided to join.
