The election of Barack Hussein Obama is supposed to represent a poignant moment in American history, Black history. And to the degree that the first Black man has actually been elected as president, it is historical. However that is about all the historic significance that Obama’s election represents. That is, unless you are stuck in the mentality of circa 1950 America?
I don’t have the statistics, but I believe that most Americans have believed for some time that a Black man could be elected president. With all the hoopla over Obama’s election, you would think that this came out of nowhere. “Geez Billy Bob, just two years ago I owned three Negros and was about to buy my fourth. Then lookey here, one of ’em done got hisself elected president! For the first time in my gun-toting redneck adult life, I am proud to be American!”
What time warp are these people living in? This is exactly why Black people are going in reverse, because we love living, no, more like wallowing in the past, as long as it doesn’t involve learning about our past.
I was born in 1963, and I can honestly say that I have never believed that a Black person could not be president. I felt that I could have been president, I just didn’t want to be. Now I credit my grandparents for raising me with a strong sense of “self”, despite their being Democrats. And I recall the Blacks who ran for the presidency, namely Shirley Chisholm, Julian Bond, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. I can honestly say that I have never felt that they had a chance, and neither should Obama for that matter. But it wasn’t because they were Black. It was because their ideas are stupid and in fact counter to the culture of the real America. They were all socialists for the most part, as most Democrats are.
This is not some watershed moment in American history, it is just another first. Just like when Obama’s dog, Harry takes a dump on the White House lawn, it will be the first Black dog to do so. And everything Obama does will be firsts, and frankly as insignificant as this really is when put in perspective.
Yet we have Jesse Jackson crying, no…sobbing as they announced that Obama was the 44th president. I say he was sobbing because he was out of a job! A product of The Obama Plan, a plan that will send many poverty pimps to the unemployment line. This is the ONLY good thing about The Obama Plan.
Or perhaps Jesse was crying, because as I said on my radio show, he was required to surrender his “race card”. Or maybe it was the fact that he hadn’t gotten a chance to “…cut [Obama’s] ‘pecans’ off“, as he was overheard commenting less than three months ago. Yes, Jesse had a lot of reasons to cry.
The real historical firsts are much more chilling. For example, I believe we have elected our first African president, which frankly is against the Constitution. But hey, the Constitution won’t mean much over the next four years anyway, right? Our new African president says that it was just a bunch of White guys who got it wrong. I mean, look at all the amendments, like that stupid 14th one that outlawed slavery. See, they missed that.
I also believe that we have elected our first president who is completely unqualified for the job. No, I take that back. The distinction of being “the first completely unqualified president” goes to that womanizing hillbilly racist, Bill Clinton. No. Hold it, yet again! There is a first here, as we have elected our first Black, no African president who is completely qualified for the job! So Jesse, there is still the hope that you can be the first completely unqualified Black president. Stop crying, you baby!
Now here is a double first for Obama. He is the first president and first Black, no African president who actually hates America. And according to him, he plans to “remake” her. I guess America will no longer wear a gown and pinned up quaff, but she will now don a dashiki and have hair extensions? And there is rumor of a name change to “Ahmedika”, pronounced “Ahk MED eKA”.
Usually presidents have some sort of track record on which they segue into the presidency. Eisenhower for example was a four-star general, and he had a significant role in America winning WWII. And there are many other examples like this. However with Obama we have yet another first. Because Obama is the first Black, excusez-moi, African president who has absolutely no record of accomplishment, except graduating from college, and writing two fiction books: Dreams of My Father [Whom I Never Knew], and The Audacity of Hope [For Style Over Substance]. And there are still more firsts…
Being a student of history, I can tell you that Obama is not our first racist president. We have had many racist Democrat presidents through history, because as you either knew already or hopefully learned through reading my blogs, the Democrats are the real racists in America. And the legacy of their racist policies continues today. So though Obama is not the first racist president, he is our first Black, no African, racist president.
So there you have it. Electing Obama as America’s 44th president produced many significant firsts. Oh and by the way, Harry the Dog said that he is no longer to be called Harry, and his new name is “Harack“, his true African name!
That’s my rant!
