When it comes to the current U.S. president Barack Obama, it is obvious to all discerning persons, that first and foremost, he has proven to be the most destructive tool against the principles, morals, and centuries-long struggle of Black America, for justice, openness, and equality for ALL people in this 21stcentury. Indeed, he is the very antithesis of what everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people have struggled so hard for in this nation, and throughout Mother Earth. He has shown himself to be the consummate prevaricating, articulate, conjuring bane of humanity. He is the hypocrite of hypocrites – the liar of liars – the stealthy war criminal of war criminals!
Yet, Barack Obama (and his corporate-owned Democrat and Republican minions) remain in political power in the year 2013, due primarily to themisleadership on the part of the collaborators of the so-called ‘progressives’ and U.S. ‘left.’ The absurdity and insanity by the misleadership of the so-called right notwithstanding, it is the strong political cover given to war criminal Barack Obama by the ‘leadership’ of ‘progressives’ and U.S. ‘leftists,’ that have kept the ongoing hypocrisy, atrocities, inverted racism and double standards by Obama and his minions in place. It is they who are the fifth column for the veiled 21st century fascism in this nation presently! It is they, who must first and foremost, be held accountable by everyday ordinary people for crimes against the ‘American’ people and the rest of humanity!
After having repeatedly and egregiously violated international law and the U.S. Constitution, by his murderous drone bombings of the sovereign nations of Pakistan, Libya (north Africa), and Somalia, (east Africa), etc.; Barack Obama now seeks to blatantly bomb the sovereign nation of Syria. This secret ‘kill list’ U.S. president is precisely the opposite of all that both Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and so many hundreds of thousands of people in this nation of ALLcolors struggled and died for. He and his minions are the hypocrites of hypocrites! They are the incessant servants of avaricious greed and the breeders of constant ‘terrorism’ nationally and globally!
As a human being and a Black American I can only hope that history will ultimately absolve Black America collectively – for at present too many of us have forsaken and sold out our hard won principles – in favor of short-term false color pride, misguided patriotism, and abject hypocrisy. Much of Black America’s supposed ‘leadership,’ in its rush to constantly support Drone Man Barack Obama, has placed us on the wrong side of history – the wrong side of the everyday ordinary people’s struggle – the wrong side of our own humanity!
Mr. ‘hope and change’ Nobel ‘Peace’ Prize laureate Obama, has shown and is showing himself to be, in actuality, Mr. rope and chain – a Trojan Horse for the same national and global greedy power elite as that of his predecessors. His double-speak and fancy rhetoric notwithstanding, he has shown himself to be nothing more than a far more articulate G.W. Bush – but on steroids.
Barack Obama’s Real Objective: Divert & Dominate Through Perpetual War
Barack Obama and his minions know full well that one does not end war in Syria (or anywhere else for that matter) by the use of drone missiles and bombs. That is the stuff of insanity! The real objective of the Obama/Biden regime and its corporate-owned Democrat and Republican minions is to smash the sovereign nation of Syria and replace it with a U.S. puppet surrogate regime. Ultimately, it is the aim of the Trojan Horse Obama regime to smash the sovereign nation of Syria, with a view towards ultimately attacking and destabilizing the sovereign nation of Iran. This is not U.S. ‘democracy’ – it is U.S. government hypocrisy and murder. One does not give ‘humanitarian’ aid or spread democracy by way of drone missiles, cruise missiles, stealth bombers, and covert military special forces!!!
The United States is not the world’s gendarme nor does it have the moral, ethical, or legal authority to act as such. Indeed, the U.S. has its own very serious and increasingly massive economic, political, and social problems right here in this nation, which is yet another reason why Barack Obama, acting on behalf of his behind-the-throne handlers, is seeking to divert everyday ordinary people’s attention away from the pain and suffering of the people in this nation, while simultaneously heaping massive military pain and suffering on people of other sovereign nations, be it in Syria, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, or Pakistan, etc.
The massive spying / police-state surveillance upon millions of ordinary U.S. citizens by Obama’s NSA apparatus is increasing – not decreasing – on a daily basis, despite Obama’s lies to the contrary. Barack Obama’s surveillance on millions of U.S. citizens is not only an egregious violation of the U.S. Constitution but is [in conjunction with the indefinite detention provision (without due process) of the so-called National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)] an ongoing act of the deliberate subversion of democracy and terrorism against the everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of this nation.
The U.S. corporate-stream ‘news’ media (aka MSNBC, FOX, PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) serve as the propaganda arms for this corrupt political system that is intent upon keeping everyday people perpetually enslaved on the divide-and-rule plantation of the fake left / right paradigm embodied by the slimy corporate-owned Democrat and Republican parties in this nation. Thus, instead of everyday people communicating directly with one another and coming together in our common interests – we find ourselves repeatedly pimped, manipulated, and divided by the incessant disinformation and misinformation on the part of systemic ‘news’ media gatekeepers. However, once we everyday people become aware of how we are all kept on the plantation – we have the very real potential to break free from this systemic bondage / slavery.
Creatively Moving Forward
We do not have to forever tolerate perpetual wars, a de facto police / surveillance state, and political gangsters bloodsucking us and being in control of this nation. Ultimately, it is we, and only we, everyday ordinary people, who can put an end to this insanity.
There is no magic wand to wave or yellow brick road to follow. There is however, the untapped creativity of just plain ordinary people who, more often than not, underestimate ourselves due to systemic programming. It is time tounplug ourselves politically, psychologically, economically, and socially from this corrupt system and its assorted gatekeepers. It is time to reject the lies and distortions not only of Barack Obama, but also of all of the rest of the political bloodsuckers masquerading as representatives of everyday people. Once we psychologically make this break it becomes a bit easier to visualize and begin to actualize building a different, better, and more humane and just society and world.
This is a long, hard, and protracted struggle. But things do not change by osmosis. Real change is brought about by everyday people making it happen.
Remember: We do not have to forever tolerate perpetual wars, a de facto police / surveillance state, and political gangsters bloodsucking us. What it comes down to is that it is really up to us to find the ways and means to do this thing TOGETHER.
Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward, then, my sisters and brothers. Onward…!
