Another Staged Event
In a recent interview with Black Enterprise Editor-in-Chief, Derek T. Dingle, Obama was asked: “How do you respond to criticism that your administration hasn’t done enough to support black businesses?” Let me state for the record that I personally believe the interview was a staged event to provide Obama cover to do his best Brer’ Rabbit act.
Here’s how it works. The interviewer is perceived to have a certain gravitas that is portrayed as credibility within a certain population group. In this case, Obama’s message was directed to blacks. But these messages are never without sensus plenior. And therein lies the deceitfulness of the rub.
Obama’s response to the question was: “My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed. I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody. So, I’ll put my track record up against anybody in terms of us putting in place broad-based programs that ultimately had a huge benefit for African American businesses.”
Here’s what you should realize about this response: Obama is very much aware that we’ve had it with all of his racialisms, and we are sick of his belligerently arrogant wife. He is aware (or at least someone within his campaign is aware) that We the People are sick of his class warfare and banausic diatribes called campaign speeches.
So he finds a stooge of the week. Someone who will literally soil their undies at the thought of sitting down with the homeboy. They’ll chest bump and knuckle bump, do the “brutha’ back-slap thang” and sit down for a completely one-sided interview that masquerades under the veneer of journalism.
The first thing his response was intended to do was calm white people who recognize him as doing more to divide the people than the late George Wallace did. At least Wallace realized the error of his racist ways after being shot and repented of same. This is the same act Obama pulled during his first campaign. He was and is very adept at getting those who are blind to buy into the “say one thing and mean another” games oleaginous politicians play.
So he feints one way by saying he isn’t the president of black America, he’s the president of the United States of America, knowing the minds of most people will tune out nanoseconds after those words. He knows that those words are all that matters to white liberal media and the majority of non-thinking whites as a whole. And voila`, it’s game, set, and match in fewer than 20 words. White people never knew what hit them; they only know that he said he is for all Americans–and the media and his dishonest talking heads use those words as talking points, ad infinitum.
And just as quickly, he turns his attention to those he really intended to speak to the entire time. In the very next sentence Obama said, “but the programs that we put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get [whatever]…[and those] who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody [else]”–just whom do you think he is talking to and/or referring to?
So there you have it–in one sentence he appeases whites with hypocorisms intended to send the message that he isn’t the prejudiced bigot he really is–while he spends the rest of the interview using code-speech directed to blacks and unions.
Here are a few questions I have for “Mr. I’m President of All The People.”
If you are president of all the people, as you want us to believe, why did you ignore my letters sent directly to you, calling for Justice Department investigations into the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation, in my official capacity when I was yet Chairman of a D.C. think tank?
If you are president of all the people, why are you ordering your Attorney General to prevent state governments from protecting the people and the property of legal citizens from illegal aliens? If you are president of all the people, why haven’t you responded to the unimpeachable facts attested to in J. Christian Adams’ book “Injustice”?
What kind of president of all the people goes out of his way to foment racial discord and class warfare? What kind of president of all the people goes out of his way to involve himself in instances where whites can be painted as anti-black villains while ignoring the rape and murder of whites by blacks?
My assessment is that Obama is no more interested in being president of all the people than he is interested in being president of black people. Obama is interested in the title of president. He is interested in what he is able to usurp and corrupt vis-a`-vis the title of president.
Every legal American citizen should ask themselves, “What has Obama done to deserve being president today–much less being reelected as same come November?”
