White Liberals Hold Obama 2 Higher Standard?


 

 

 

Real Brother Here.

While I applaud Mellisa Harris-Perry for finally addressing these so called “Progressives” who are angry with President Obama for not being the Slave that they thought they elected, I must take issue with her argument that White Progressives have set an arbitrarily high and therefore unachievable standard for a Black President. This is false. In fact the opposite is true.  You can read the entire article here http://bit.ly/og8C4B

My problem with getting the motivation for White Liberals abandoning President Obama wrong is it can do serious damage to his re-election if Whites are comforted by knowing that we were wrong in thinking they pulled their support from the President because of high standards when in fact he’s done too much and made White Presidents seem as mere mortals. If we get it right their shame and guilt would possibly make them think twice about destroying this Country because a Black President exceeded their low ball expectations.

Joy Reid of  The Grio wrote a companion piece to Harris-Perry’s,you can read that one here http://bit.ly/q5fYtw missing the same point that Whites don’t have HIGH expectations for Black people and get quite upset when Blacks don’t adhere to their Racist stereotypes of us. I offer as proof that Whites don’t have HIGH expectations for President Obama;  Chris Matthews quote:  “I want to see LESS INTELLIGENCE from this [Black]President and more fight” As in more angry Black man stereotypes. And then we had Andrea Mitchell in her very last interview ever with Valerie Jarrett who casually remarked that the President knows he’s the smartest guy in the room to which Mitchell quipped: “That’s arrogant, he’s arrogant”.  The comments about the President being “weak” and “caving” and “giving in” etc. I’d even offer that the Public Option flap and the Bush Tax Cut silliness are like the 57 States Myth.  These comments don’t portend of a HIGHER standard but to the belief held by 99.9% of Whites that Blacks are simply INFERIOR.  Whites resent Pres. Obama not living up to that LOW standard. They resent the Presidents intellect because as they said in my favorite movie A Soldiers Story, “Black folks are only supposed to have but so much sense”.

So in conclusion if we are going to address White Supremacy and Racism let’s not get it wrong because Whites are going to simply tune us out. Its better to get it right and then there will be nothing they can say. President Obama has written these White Progressives off he had to. He knows if he makes a better argument then whichever Racist he faces he skates to re-election. The last thing the President needs to do is try to dumb himself down to fit these stupid Racist stereotypes just to make White people feel Superior. The truth of the matter is they’d respect the President more by thumbing his nose at their stupidity then if he were to play dumb just to please em’.

  1. Mr. TKCAL, you state, “These comments don’t portend of a HIGHER standard but to the belief held by 99.9% of Whites that Blacks are simply INFERIOR.” Do you have any hard evidence (from more than one source) that supports your claim that 99.9% of Whites believe that Blacks are inferior? If you do not provide such evidence, then why should anyone believe your claim? If your claim were true, then how do you explain the fact that President Obama won the 2008 presidential election?

    1. Real Brother here.

      Yes my evidence that 99.9% of Whites are White Supremacists who think of Blacks as INFERIOR is the 450 years of Slavery, Racism, Discrimination and Oppression of Blacks based on the MYTH that Blacks are INFERIOR. And miss me with the argument that if 99.9% of Whites think Blacks are inferior and therefore had no fear of electing Barack Obama then why did they elect Barack Obama and then when they realized he WASN’T INFERIOR they can’t abandon him fast enough.

  2. REALITY!!

    ( Health Care Budget Deficit Calculator — http://www.cepr.net/calculators/hc/hc-calculator.html )

    ( Briefing: Dean Baker on Boosting the Economy by Saving Healthcare http://t.co/fmVz8nM )

    START NOW!

    As you all know. Had congress passed a single-payer or government-run robust Public Option CHOICE! available to everyone on day one, our economy and jobs would have taken off like a rocket. And still will. Single-payer would be best. But a government-run robust Public Option CHOICE! that can lead to a single-payer system is the least you can accept. It’s not about competing with for-profit healthcare and for-profit health insurance. It’s about replacing it with Universal Healthcare Assurance. Everyone knows this now.

    The message from the midterm elections was clear. The American people want real healthcare reform. They want that individual mandate requiring them to buy private health insurance abolished. And they want a government-run robust public option CHOICE! available to everyone on day one. And they want it now.

    They want Drug re-importation, and abolishment, or strong restrictions on patents for biologic and prescription drugs. And government controlled and negotiated drug and medical cost. They want back control of their healthcare system from the Medical Industrial Complex. And they want it NOW!

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NOT, AND MUST NOT, ALLOW AN INDIVIDUAL MANDATE TO STAND WITHOUT A STRONG GOVERNMENT-RUN PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE! AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE.

    For-profit health insurance is extremely unethical, and morally repugnant. It’s as morally repugnant as slavery was. And few if any decent Americans are going to allow them-self to be compelled to support such an unethical and immoral crime against humanity.

    This is a matter of National and Global security. There can be NO MORE EXCUSES.

    Further, we want that corrupt, undemocratic filibuster abolished. Whats the point of an election if one corrupt member of congress can block the will of the people, and any legislation the majority wants. And do it in secret. Give me a break people.

    Also, unemployment healthcare benefits are critically needed. But they should be provided through the Medicare program at cost, less the 65% government premium subsidy provided now to private for profit health insurance.

    Congress should stop wasting hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money on private for profit health insurance subsidies. Subsidies that cost the taxpayer 10x as much or more than Medicare does. Private for profit health insurance plans cost more. But provide dangerous and poorer quality patient care.

    Republicans: GET RID OF THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE.

    Democrats: ADD A ROBUST GOVERNMENT-RUN PUBLIC OPTION TO HEALTHCARE REFORM.

    This is what the American people are shouting at you. Both parties have just enough power now to do what the American people want. GET! IT! DONE! NOW!

    If congress does not abolish the individual mandate. And establish a government-run public option CHOICE! before the end of 2011. EVERY! member of congress up for reelection in 2012 will face strong progressive pro public option, and anti-individual mandate replacement candidates.

    Strong progressive pro “PUBLIC OPTION” CHOICE! and anti-individual mandate volunteer candidates should begin now. And start the process of replacing any and all members of congress that obstruct, or fail to add a government-run robust PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE! before the end of 2011.

    We need two or three very strong progressive volunteer candidates for every member of congress that will be up for reelection in 2012. You should be fully prepared to politically EVISCERATE EVERY INCUMBENT that fails or obstructs “THE PUBLIC OPTION”. And you should be willing to step aside and support the strongest pro “PUBLIC OPTION” candidate if the need arises.

    ASSUME CONGRESS WILL FAIL and SELLOUT again. So start preparing now to CUT THEIR POLITICAL THROATS. You can always step aside if they succeed. But only if they succeed. We didn’t have much time to prepare before these past midterm elections. So the American people had to use a political shotgun approach. But by 2012 you will have a scalpel.

    Congress could have passed a robust government-run public option during it’s lame duck session. They knew what the American people wanted. They already had several bills on record. And the house had already passed a public option. Departing members could have left with a truly great accomplishment. And the rest of you could have solidified your job before the 2012 elections.

    President Obama, you promised the American people a strong public option available to everyone. And the American people overwhelmingly supported you for it. Maybe it just wasn’t possible before. But it is now.

    Knock heads. Threaten people. Or do whatever you have to. We will support you. But get us that robust public option CHOICE! available to everyone on day one before the end of 2011. Or We The People Of The United States will make the past midterm election look like a cake walk in 2012. And it will include you.

    We still have a healthcare crisis in America. With hundreds of thousands dieing needlessly every year in America. And a for profit medical industrial complex that threatens the security and health of the entire world. They have already attacked the world with H1N1 killing thousands, and injuring millions. And more attacks are planned for profit, and to feed their greed.

    Spread the word people.

    Progressives, prepare the American peoples scalpels. It’s time to remove some politically diseased tissues.

    God Bless You my fellow human beings. I’m proud to be one of you. You did good.

    See you on the battle field.

    Sincerely

    1. Real Brother here.

      The problem with you White Supremacists is that your belief that Whites are Superior has led you to question the lack of a Public Option in the Health Care Reform Act. You’re stupidity and Racial Bias has blinded you to the fact that unlike Medicare providing 50 million able bodied people with Health Care is impossible without the cooperation of the existing private Health Care Companies and Hospitals. You stupid Idiots sell Americans short by the Public Option and Single Payer because FREE Health Care would be sub standard care. White Supremacists want to DESTROY the Private Health Care Industry when that’s America’s single LARGEST EMPLOYER of WOMEN. Are you White Idiots CRAZY? That’s simply an excuse that is based on RACE. As for White Supremacists who want to see President Obama curse out the Racists and threaten to kill their Cracker Babies that’s DUMB too. Whites are threatened by the end of the MYTH of White Supremacy and you are no siding with Racists to put the toothpaste back up into the tube. You will NOT win this battle.

  3. If you want better and cheaper health care, then you want a free market – not the corporatism and Keynesianism we’ve had for 100 years.

    Austrian Economics shows how it is actually government intervention in the economy (such as forcing interest rates low, government run businesses, subsidies of all kinds, etc.) is actually the CAUSE of the boom-bust cycle, which causes inflationary booms in long-term projects, which HAVE to bust because they weren’t based on market prices.

    Understand that this is true whether there is racism to be found or not. You see this with the Native Americans, who, when they own their own property, can participate in free market Capitalism and make themselves richer.

    As for health care – and I want to distinguish from health insurance, which is designed to do quite a different thing – the people who work in the health care industry actually deserve to earn something for the services they perform, and that’s exactly why they go to work, is to make money. Now, like I alluded to, a free market – which we haven’t had for about 100 years – would actually lower the cost of everything, and make even quality health care easier to obtain.

    The thing I want to say about health insurance, is important, because a lot of people expect it to have the same goal as health care – but as I’ll show this is both unreasonable and is actually NOT something you want to be true.

    Health care – where you’re paying the doctors or hospitals directly – THEIR job is to make you better; That’s the service they are trading for your money. Health INSURANCE, on the other hand, is completely different BY DEFINITION.

    With health insurance, you’re putting your money into a pool with others who hope to pay less for health care when they need it. So the purpose of health INSURANCE is to make the health care payments cheaper for everyone in the pool. Well, aside from the overhead, which must be paid to those who manage the pool, but which reduces the available money in the pool, in order to make sure there is enough money in the pool for everyone, there HAS to be rationing. This is the nature of anything that is socialized.

    And since there must be rationing under socialized health care, a lack of focus on individual needs is INHERENT to that system – insurance is NOT SUPPOSED TO care about people. That’s the doctors’ job.

    I have a lot to say about Austrian Economics, but just to show how a free market – which we DO NOT have, right now – lowers prices for the consumer, please read the following article.

    Anti-trust, Anti-truth
    http://mises.org/daily/436

    1. Real Brother here. @Anti-trust

      I totally disagree with your entire argument. You assume White Insurance Companies and Corporations etc. are Superior because they’re White which I and President Obama reject. And you have a convoluted notion of the “free market”. You’re talking about hack and quack medicine which never works. Libertarian go for what you know lawlessness has NEVER been tried anywhere and is a bunch of nonsense that Racists would use to discriminate against Blacks. You characterization of the Affordable Care Act as Socialized Medicine is old and tired. You think Whites are Superior and its causing you to underestimate Pres. Obama and that’s why you’re LOSE.

  4. Realbrother,

    A Corporation doesn’t have to be run by “Whites” to be superior to non-Corporations. Of course, when Corporations can have government protections, that’s called crony Capitalism or Corporatism; and such protections would not exist in a free market.

    I don’t remember saying that Insurance companies were superior to anything, by the way. I happen to think that they would be largely unnecessary in a free market because insurance companies, by design, socialize costs.

    As to the superiority of the free market over Marxism, again, I refer you to those Native Americans who have chosen to embrace free market Capitalism: they do better than those Native Americans who have chosen a more Marxist economic philosophy.

    The free market has nothing to do with race. If you want to be financially better off, whether you’re Black or White, then stop the government from intervening in the economy and join the free market. Racism simply cannot compete in a free market, because you have to refuse to do business with a significant number of people, and there would be others who would readily do business with them.

    Here is a helpful explanation of why this is so, from another Ron Paul supporter:

    A black man’s view on Ron Paul being racist Part 1

    The only reason racism was the issue it was, at one time in America, is because of government-granted economic protections for Whites (kind of like what is happening with government-protections for Corporations). But, today, the reason there is a noticeable wealth disparity between “Whites” and “colored people” is, like I said, that most people who have adopted a Marxist economic philosophy as part of their cultural identity, happen to be non-white.

    Can you deny that your disdain for free market Capitalism is a part of how you define yourself as a “black man”?

    That doesn’t prove that “Whites” are superior; It just proves that everyone should stop defining themselves by the color of their skin and embrace the free market.

    As for whether free markets have been tried, yes they have. Please note, though, that I am not advocating lawlessness, as you have characterized Libertarianism. Free markets do not require lawlessness.

    It is currently being tried in Belgium:

    Belgium Is Thriving Without A Government
    http://www.businessinsider.com/belgium-is-thriving-without-a-government-2011-9

    And it was tried, to a great extent, in the so-called “Wild West”:

    The Not So Wild, Wild West
    http://mises.org/daily/4108

    As for my characterization of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), I don’t believe I have. But my characterization of it is close to that, though.

    The Marxist hope for Obamacare is that it will serve as a step toward Socialized Medicine. So, it is no comfort to me that this goal has not been realized, YET:

    Here is Conyers admitting as much:

    Conyers: Obamacare Is ‘Platform’ for Creating Single-Payer System
    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/conyers-obamacare-platform-creating-single-payer-system

    Which is consistent with what Obama said here:

    Obama on single payer health insurance

    Back to the issue of Austrian Economics:

    Did you know that Austrian Economics can explain the recent housing collapse, the Great Depression, the Depression of 1920, and the major panics before the Fed?

    The cause of all of these, as Austrian Economics holds, is the same reason which gave the British the evil idea to try to colonize everyone, which, as I understand, is how Obama’s grandpa got killed.

    It is also the reason why the United States has been able to stretch its military around the world and, under the guise of “defense spending” to its clueless citizens, has become hated around the world.

    And it is also the reason why banks, corporations, and politicians become richer while the other citizens become poorer.

    It is not Capitalism that caused these things, contrary to what Obama and other Marxists suppose, but rather it is artificial expansions of credit – most effectively accomplished in the form of fiat money (such as the US Dollar).

    In fact, I would go so far as to say that the United States would not exist had Britain’s tyrannical government, unjustly empowered by fiat money, sent its colonists to America.

    Now, by the time our Constitutional Republic was established, our Founders understood that paper money was an economic plague; This is why they wrote a Gold Standard into the Constitution.

    But in 1913, a fiat money system was greatly enabled by the creation of the Fed, which is how America, like Britain before it, became a plague to the rest of the world.

    Austrian economics holds that the solution to all tyrannical governments and crony Capitalism is to take from central planners the ability to create fiat money and allow the market to be free from government interventions or other central planning agencies, such as central banks. This is why Ron Paul wants to return to a Gold Standard and to end the Federal Reserve System.

    I have plenty more to say about Austrian Economics, so if you have any tough questions for me, I will try to answer them.
