Barack Obama can now get out from under his bed and run alongside the
rescued shelter dog Kennedy gifted water dog. No doubt upon first hearing mean ol’ pirates had captured Americans Obama thought he could use that vast “community organizer” experience to impress the Barbary Coast pirates and organize them into productive world citizens.
The entire pirate episode once again demonstrates the fakery behind the entire Obama persona and the foolishness of those who persist in defending their support of the flim-flam man. Recall, Dumb White People as well as The Obama Delusion.
In The Obama Delusion we quoted extensively from Obama water boy Andrew Sullivan. Recall Sullivan’s love for Obama – try not to laugh:
What does he offer? First and foremost: his face. Think of it as the most effective potential re-branding of the United States since Reagan. Such a re-branding is not trivial—it’s central to an effective war strategy. The war on Islamist terror, after all, is two-pronged: a function of both hard power and soft power. [snip]
Consider this hypothetical. It’s November 2008. A young Pakistani Muslim is watching television and sees that this man—Barack Hussein Obama—is the new face of America. In one simple image, America’s soft power has been ratcheted up not a notch, but a logarithm. A brown-skinned man whose father was an African, who grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii, who attended a majority-Muslim school as a boy, is now the alleged enemy. If you wanted the crudest but most effective weapon against the demonization of America that fuels Islamist ideology, Obama’s face gets close. It proves them wrong about what America is in ways no words can.
Those very dark skinned young pirates seem to not agree with foolish Sullivan. Perhaps those very dark skinned pirates are “racists”. “Racist” is the preferred epithet by the Hopium addled whenever their object of worship is not worshipped.
We mocked Sullivan then and recalled the valuable truth uttered by Lord Palmerston: “Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests.” Those very dark, or rather black-skinned pirates are concerned with their own interests not in the color of Obama’s skin.
In Dumb White People we featured a video of John Kerry saying some very foolish things.
… Because he’s African American. Because he’s a black man who has come from a place of oppression and repression in through the years in our own country.
Kerry said some very foolish things about how people like pirates or terrorists would listen to a black American president because he is black. No Lord Palmerston wisdom for foolish Kerry. [Also for those who are aware of Abe Lincoln’s particular way of saying “people”, feel free to amuse yourselves as Kerry imitates Sam Waterson imitating Abe Lincoln.]
Obama of course is a long time race-baiter. In Dumb White People we quoted from a Newsweek article:
Keith Kakugawa was a close friend of Obama’s at the Punahou School. (He appears in “Dreams” as a revised character named “Ray” who may be a composite of more than one Obama friend.) He says that Obama, being a dark-skinned kid growing up in a white household, sensed that something was amiss. “He felt that he was not getting a part of who he was, the history,” says Kakugawa, who is also of mixed race. He recalls Obama’s reading black authors —James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison, Langston Hughes—looking for clues. Keith didn’t know at first that Obama’s given name was Barack. “We were in the library and there was a Malcolm X book,” Kakugawa tells NEWSWEEK. “He grabbed it and looked at it and he’s checking it out, and I said, ‘Hold on, man. What you gonna do? Change your name to something Muslim?’ He said, ‘Well, my name is Barack Obama.’ And I said, ‘No it isn’t.’ And we got in an argument about that in the library and they had to tell us, ‘Shhhh’.”
Back in Hawaii in the 1970s, it could seem that everyone was some kind of a minority. The fact that Obama was half-black and half-white didn’t matter much to anyone but Obama, Kakugawa says: “He made everything out like it was all racial.” On one occasion, Obama thought he’d gotten a bad break on the school basketball team because he was black. But Kakugawa recalls his father’s telling the teenager, “No, Barry, it’s not because you’re black. It’s because you missed two shots in a row.” (Here, Kakugawa’s memory is different from Obama’s. The Ray character in the book is the one obsessed with being discriminated against.)
Obama will not be able to “community organize” those who hate America already. Obama’s skin color is entirely irrelevant except to those that ignore the content of Obama’s bad character simply because he is black or half black. And those Obama supporters who support Obama because of his skin color will continue to accuse non-believers as “racists”.

Whether the pirates were racists or not, we are happy that the American hostage is safe. Score one for the Navy.

Some of our readers may have noticed we did not publish this past weekend. We were busy on a nationwide research project. We had a good laugh. Here is what happened.
As many know this April 15th there will be nationwide “tea parties” to protest Obama policies. A preemptive disinformation and counter programming strike was launched by Obama supporters and self-described Obama “dupes” under the banner of “A New Way Forward“. These Obama “dupes” and cheerleaders got themselves a website and proceeded to make chatter.
We wanted to know how massive these mostly PINO Big Blogs would organize their massive April 11 protests and we set out to find out. Our research project left us paralyzed with laughter. Riverdaughter has the funny details about the Saturday boobery:
I hoped I wasn’t too late for the speeches, the burning efigies, the crowds “marching and shouting slogans”, as they say in NPR speak. I hurried to Union Square from the subway station looking for the throng. Alas, I didn’t find a throng. I found a little crowd. Well, crowd wasn’t exactly the word. Group is more like it. A small group. My heart sank. Here was one of the most important issues of the day, the debate over whether the banks should be nationalized, and it was going largely unprotested.
We can’t say we are surprised by the sparse attendance at the Big Blog sponsored chicanery. Bill Greider, once respected, has declared himself “duped” by his own wishful thinking. Other leaders of these hapless “demonstrations” of weakness are those from “NothingLeft” like David Sirota as well as embarrassments like Joe Trippi. “Pump and dump” Jerome Armstrong, still protected by sulphur Big Blogs in his refusal to explain his SEC “entanglements”, also pumped the April 11 demonstration of weakness.
These hapless promoters of Saturday’s dud demonstrations need to learn the lessons of this weekend’s pirate escapades – the lessons the pirates learned at the bullet point of the U.S. Navy. The lesson is that the only way to fight Obama is to fight him with both fists, not with wimpy threats.
We doubt that these Big Blog “demonstration” organizers will learn the lesson. They proved themselves to be mindless or complicit in Obama’s frauds when they supported Obama. Frankly we want nothing to do with them. We don’t even want their apology for destroying the Democratic Party and subjecting the nation to the Third Bush Term or for calling non-worshippers of Obama “racists”.
For months we have argued forcefully that Obama is the Third Bush Term. Now, another (African-American) “racist” is close to saying Obama is the Third Bush Term:
Et Tu, Olbermann? Some Liberals Finally Realize That for Certain Issues, “Change” Actually Means “More of the Same”. Ever since President Obama became the frontrunner in the Democratic primaries, many liberals have gleefully discarded the useful concepts of dissent, critical thinking, and a sanely guarded view of politicians. Rather than approaching politics with critical distance, many liberals became so emotionally charged over the prospects of winning the White House, expanding the party’s lead in Congress, and electing an amorphously left-identified black man that they refused to listen to others who questioned whether any politician could deliver the grand promises of “change” that Obama and his supporters made during his campaign.
After President Obama took office, it became abundantly clear that he would continue engaging in some policies that liberals derided during the Bush administration. A few progressives criticized the continuation of these policies, the inherent contradiction between Obama’s promises and his embrace of these policies, and the hypocrisy of liberals who failed to condemn Obama, even though they skewered Bush for the exact same conduct. These arguments, however, led to a concerted “pushback” from many liberal protectors of the administration.
Dissenting Justice, for example, provoked a storm among some liberals after running a series of essays which argues that Obama’s position on “rendition” differs from Bush’s practices in “form” rather than “substance.” Since that time, President Obama has embraced positions that are similar to or indistinct from Bush’s stance on policies such as state secrets and indefinite detention.
Et tu, Olbermann?
It now seems that some liberals have given up trying to deny the closeness of Obama’s and Bush’s positions on some aspects of antiterrorism policy. MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann ranks among the most effusive and uncritical supporters of President Obama. During the Democratic primaries, Olbermann was responsible for spreading a grossly distorted — actually, downright deceitful — story which implied that Hillary Clinton remained in the primaries because she was waiting for the possible assassination of Obama. Olbermann produced a nearly 1/2-hour rant in which he accused Clinton of being racist, selfish, insensitive, and many other undesirable adjectives. The Obama campaign immediately emailed the video to other media, after which it quickly spread around the Internet.
Until recently, Olbermann did not bend in his effusive portrayals of Obama and his scathing and acidic criticism of his opponents. But even Olbermann has shifted away from his uncritical stance now that the Obama administration has again deployed a broad state secrets defense to oppose lawsuits challenging the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping and rendition. [snip]
According to Greenwald, Obama’s biggest supporters have no choice but to point out how his policies mimic Bush’s because:
It would require a virtually pathological level of tribal loyalty and monumental intellectual dishonesty not to object just as vehemently as we watch the Obama DOJ repeatedly invoke these very same theories and, in this instance, actually invent a new one that not even the Bush administration espoused. Unfortunately, in the recent past, many liberals actually placed “tribal loyalty” above intellectual consistency and adherence to progressive values.
Another “racist” explains:
(Before proceeding, let me repeat my standard definition: I am a liberal who despises “progressives” — a word and a movement defined by Moulitsas, Huffington, Obama and other Libertarians-in-liberal clothing)
There ain’t gonna be any flowers in rifles until you Obots f*cking APOLOGIZE.
APOLOGIZE, GODDAMMIT! APOLOGIZE!! [snip]
Apologize for calling Hillary a “liar and a c*nt.” Apologize for calling Bill Clinton “a cancer on liberalism.” Apologize for telling all non-Obama supporters to leave the party. Apologize for redefining the term “racist” to mean “any Democrat who won’t vote for Obama over Hillary.” Apologize for the death threats — and believe me, there were plenty.
Have we ever heard one apology for the “darkened video” smear? No, we have not.
Have we ever heard one apology for the NAFTA smear (click on the greenish ad at the top of the right-hand column for details)? No, we have not.
Have we ever heard one apology for the RFK smear (which the progs kept repeating even after RFK Jr. set the record straight)? No, we have not.
Have we heard any apologies for the incessant claims that Bill Clinton was and is a racist? No, we have not.
Have we had any apologies for the resurrection of every loopy right-wing conspiracy ever voiced against the Clintons during the 1990s (including “Vince Foster! Vince Foster! Vince Foster!”)? No, we have not. [snip]
No unity without apology. Don’t sit back and try to come up with reasons why you need not apologize. For example, don’t try to hit us with “Well, Hillary has moved on — she’s working for Obama now.”
Keep the apology, keep the change. We’ll continue to fight – it’s the only language Chicago pirates understand. We’ll take our tea on April 15.
