Michelle Hussein Obama Says She’s Been Ashamed of the U.S. for Decades

By Debbie Schlussel
When I wrote, recently, that wannabe-First Lady Michelle Hussein Obama is the Black Hillary, readers disagreed, saying she’s far worse. Upon reading their comments and seeing this new video, I definitely agree with themespecially reader/blogger Interested-Participant who said she is more like Cynthia McKinney). Hell hath no fury like this woman as First Lady. . . and America scorned (by her).
Apparently the woman has been ASHAMED of America for decades. She told an audience that she’s only, now, for the first time her life proud of America. Do you really want to allow this woman in the White House . . . even as a tourist? I’d MUCH rather have Hillary and Slick Willie than the Hussein Obamas. Oy vey:


Obama
Uploaded by krs601

For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m proud of my country.

–Michelle Obama
Um, for the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m embarrassed–and frightened–that my country could put this co-President-ette in the White House.
This woman is 44 years old. That means she’s legally been an adult for 26 years, and has been embarrassed/ashamed of America for more than a quarter century. And we want this cretin-ette in this White House?
Check out the comments under this video at Breitbart. I agree with most of them.

As much as I dislike McCain, these socialists (the Obama’s) must be kept out of the White House at all costs.
[R: AMEN!!!! DS]

She’s pretty awful — reminds me a little of billy Carter, or Hillary’s brother, even though, fortunately, they weren’t all that political. I have no doubt that Obama(s) will be among the worst presidents we have ever had, but I fear that Billary would be just as bad. When I think back on BC’s 8 years, as you discussed, he weakened this country tremendously, appeased our enemies, refused to respond to Muslim attacks, not to mention Oslo, and was only reined in somewhat when Congress got a Republican majority. I will never forget those awful first years ith the socialist health plan, don’t ask don’t tell, travelgate, stealing the FBI files, and even recently, Sandy Burglar, the former National Security advisor, stealing things from the national archives. Another Clinton Secretary of Defense, john Deutsch, was also caught with inappropriate documents on his home computer after he stepped down. These were the kinds of people BC had for natioal security, not that Obama would be any better. I think Hillary agrees with the Obamas on all major points; she just has disguised her radical views a little since she entered the Senate. She has maintained her ties to the communist law firm she worked for while in law school.
I agree with others who say the most important thing now is to build the conservative movement, elect good Senators & Reps & local politicians where we can, to prepare for a better day.

If Obama assumes the presidency(G-D forbid), then Michelle would have a valid reason to be ashamed of America.

American Sabrah on February 18, 2008 at 7:12 pm

This broad, Michelle Obama, was educated and got a law degree at the prestigous Ivy League Harvard University (a university that the overwhemingly white majority couldn’t attend), yet she has the balls to say she’s not proud of this country?!! Where does she get off?!! Perhaps she should’ve moved to Africa and studied at one of the many prestigous universities on that continent!…name one!
Perhaps she should’ve moved to Africa and practiced law there. Yeah, she could’ve bartered her services in exchange for goats’ milk and beetle larvae as she defended people committing genocide…..wait, I forgot, the rule of law is but a concept on that continent.
It appears that Michelle (she doesn’t have the obligatory invented African name, such as; Taquanna, Aisha, Moesha, or Abloguarrinkinte) was born with a silver spoon in her mouth yet harbors the same anti-American, anti-establishment hysteria that a lot of her race is in this country is notorious for. This broad lived a life of luxury that her fellow black folk can only dream about, yet she hates this country.
AND if it wasn’t for whitey, her husband (and her) wouldn’t have gone THIS far….even for him to get to the U.S. Senate, whitey in Illinois would had to have voted for him to get to there, too.
It seems as if America should be ashamed of Michelle Obama for harboring 1960’s radicalism…and not the other way around.
If this hate-filled, unappreciative broad ever gets to the White House get ready for a radicalism (revenge) that even Hillary wouldn’t foist upon this nation.

Thee_Bruno on February 18, 2008 at 7:24 pm

BTW, I think she just scuttled her husband’s campaign with that remark.

Thee_Bruno on February 18, 2008 at 7:29 pm

What a piece of crap this woman is. There is no place, no time, nowhere better than being a citizen of the USA today. Too many of these “the man is keepin’ us down” types and the boneheaded “white self-haters” that support them. Everything that this country has been built on is slowly being dismantled from within.

TheOmegaMan on February 18, 2008 at 7:47 pm

The whole Obama campaign is repackaged Rev. Jesse Jackson “keep hope alive” BS. This is just part of that. She is playing that roll for an academy award. I don’t see her as sinister as though this is from the heart, just playing the dupe for the dupes who will connect on some emotional level–like soul sista Ho-prah.
What is even more pathetic to me is that for such comments as these, the hussein-Obama’s are treated like the second coming of MLK! Constant fawning review from the MSM without any real critique- gives them an aritficial world to campaign in.
How sad that we will be stuck with a choice between this crap, Cankles or McLame-brain!

BB on February 18, 2008 at 7:55 pm

Nothing but another Black racist hypocrite who goes-to-prestigious(Read: expensive,majority White built )-college, “graduates”(usually with very questionalble grades)-but-continues-to-hate-Whites, then spews nothing but racist hatred of White people/America/Western civilization “racism”.
The eyes are the windows to the soul – and only ONE look in her psychotic eyes( trying unsuccessfully to fool us into believing they exude earnestness ) gives the whole show away.

OldSchoolW on February 18, 2008 at 8:17 pm

This Chris Rock look-a-like has probably been mistaken for a man her whole life, thats not white Americas fault. Once again empty speech full of messages of self loathing. If she hates white people so much she should stop trying to style her hair like a white woman. I’ve been working with b—-es like this for most of my life and have had my fill of them. Guilty white men and women better snap out of their education system induced trance quick before they continue to give up more delegates.

samurai on February 18, 2008 at 9:23 pm

“She’s pretty awful — reminds me a little of billy Carter”
That’s unfair — to Billy Carter. He served 4 years in the Marines, which is 4 more years of service to his country than Michelle, Barack, Hillary, and Bill COMBINED. And Billy farmed peanuts for a living, which is at least as honest as living as being a lawyer.

DocLiberty on February 18, 2008 at 9:25 pm

I am really sad that American politicians do not think twice before cursing their country. The very country that raise dnot only them but their fore-fathers. How can any patriot think bad about one’s country. I mean.. bad leadership is one thing but bad country is quite the other. No matter how bad the leadership is, a country that has raised ones family and generations, can never be bad. Someone who doe snot know the difference is an IGNORANT TRAITOR!
American politicians do not even read history else they would have read Mahatma Gandhi’s resolute determination: “My country first or last”.
On this one foolish declaration alone, No vote for OBAMA, period.

Alert on February 18, 2008 at 10:17 pm

so -what is she ashamed of? did she say? or was she proud of the fact that that people of all color are getting excited about her husband? why is america excited over barry? because of his color,politics, both? He probably hates America as much as she does. Many of his actions have suggested this.
i’m the same age as this woman & have had nowhere near the opportunities she has had. I finished college 10 yrs after graduating HS & paid for it myself.
I LOVE this country and drill my love into my 8yr old son’s head everyday. Everyday he hears that this is a great country.
What is wrong with this woman & why the chip on her shoulder?

So when`s this family of `white slavers` getting out of the US. Saudi arabia would be a good place for them to live out the rest of their lives.

Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
* creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
* satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
* augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
* rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.
“The roots of liberalism ñ and its associated madness ñ can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

She and her man are both products of Affirmative Actions. Don’t try to forget about this.
How can you feel so low and oppressed as to continue to love a country, that long ago turned its back to you? And what is the reason to repeat like a broken automate that this is the best country in the world? Have you been – not as a tourist, but as a sojourn – in many countries to judge about this matter? And – what is our world? This is the only one we know, but because of this – is it necessarily the best? And what is this best? And for whom?
Your 8yr old son shall know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about everything that is going in the world, especially here. I am not here to give any recommendations how to raise someone’s kids – everyone has his/hers own methods, and has the right to utilize them. But a kid – any kid – only win if he/she will know the truth, and the earlier the better. And if you have been an afflicted by such outragious inequality, happening here, – why not to tell about it to your son? I have always been proud of my children, who at the earlier age (than 8 y/o)knew a whole lot about this country and currently, at their still early age, have their own, and pretty complex, opinion of what is going on here and what is the real rank of this country for them.
The only true is – Obama’s woman is a crap as well as her man. She is ashamed of this country, because she judges that this country, despite all privileges poured over her, still failed to satisfy her lionine appetite. She would be more satisfied – and less ashamed – if she would be elected a queen of this land. All African Americans are dreaming about it – to become somebody as ominpotent as Bokassa (Salah Eddine Ahmed Bokassa, omnipotent monarch of Central African Republic, whose official title was: Empereur de Centrafrique par la volonte du peuple Centrafricain, uni au sein du parti politique national). If you would like to dig up more about this remarcable gentleman, fail not to read about his very peculiar menu.

MarcAurelio on February 19, 2008 at 3:30 am

Not being proud of a country is not the same as being ashamed of it.
Though given the 300 years of brutality African Americans have suffered from the white racist power structure, from slavery to the aftermath of Katrina, I wouldn’t argue with any African American who said they were ashamed to be American.

“As much as I dislike McCain, these socialists (the Obama’s) must be kept out of the White House at all costs.”
Sadly, Obama is not a Socialist, he’s a moderate Conservative.
Don’t just take my word for it. The People at Political Compass have looked at the political standpoints of all the candidates and plotted their positions on a graph, with Left-Right politics on one axis, and Libertarian/Authoritarian on the other. Extra weight is added to the voting records of those concerned, presumably because the one time you can trust a politician to be saying what (s)he really means is when (s)he is actually voting.
As you can see from the results, ALL the major players are conservatives. Only Kucinic was just left of centre of the serious candidates, he’s what we would call a centre-leftist in Europe. In left-right terms you could hardly pass a cigarette paper between the positions of McCain and Clinton/Obama.
http://www.politicalcompass.org.usprimaries2008
“While Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel are depicted on the extreme left in an American context, they would simply be mainstream social democrats within the wider political landscape of Europe. Similarly, Hillary Clinton is popularly perceived as a leftist in the United States while in any other western democracy her record is that of a moderate conservative.”
(Amusingly, you will see that Ron Paul, the alleged darling of the Libertarian Right is not actually Libertarian at all.)
You can take the test yourself. I came out at Political Left/Right -7.85 Autoritarian/Libertarian -7.55.
Which puts me deeply into Left Libertarian territory. I’d be interested to see where some of you guys come out.

No Pasaran! Over a thirty year period driving a taxi in Philadelphia, Buffalo and Niagara Falls for 18 years, 50% of the population in the back seat being black when I hung up my keys in Nov 02 the first thing to come to mind was I don’t have to have anything more to do with them. The same dumb crap I heard coming out of the mouths of the grand parents in 75 is the same dumb crap I heard coming out of the mouths of the grand children in 02.
Haven’t had anyone in this country owning a slave or being a slave for 155 years. Still going on about it. The choclate mayor couldn’t get them out of New Orleans, leaving buses in parking lots and turning down offers from AMTRAK to evacuate those that couldn’t afford to get out on their own. But the choclate mayor was able to send buses to Houston, Dallas and Atlanta to collect everyone to take them back to New Orleans for one day to vote and the morons re-elected him back in. They wanted to stay in New Orleans so they could loot. Admit it, that’s why they didn’t want to leave. Regardless of the reason for the failure they got busted by levees. Still they’re scattered to the winds waiting for someone to do for them and carry them on back down. And those that have returned have to be policed by the national Guard because the crime is out of control.
Have you checked out the second generation Vietnamese that settled in New Orleans? They suffered the same but, they have at mostly their own expense rebuilt their part of town completely. Second generation Vietnamese boat people. People that voted with their rafts and floated out to sea to come here. The first generation were shrimp fishermen in the Gulf, most of their children, the second generation speak English well and rebuilt their part of yellow town.

John Cunningham on February 19, 2008 at 9:45 am

Obama, a moderate conservative?! Did I read you correctly?
Are you being sincere or is this some sort of joke? Its rather humorous that you mentioned that. Your right about your previous postings. I find your caption to be funnier that the one I posted about Hillary so congratulatiouns for that.Admittely, I did get a good laugh at your statement but piqued my curiousity all at the same time. Where did you come up with the assertation that Obama is a moderate conservative and how does he manifest that? To me, he seem to be otherwise, exspecially on health care and the way he rants about “change”.
Looking foward to hearing your response.

American Sabrah on February 19, 2008 at 9:55 am

Let’s see,
*Obama refuses to place hand on heart to recite pledge of allegiance . . .
*Obama has issue with flag pin for lapel – doesn’t want to wear his brand of patriotism . . .
*Obama hasn’t had any pride in US despite all the opportunities provided and the each continue to reap. . . .check

“Obama refuses to place hand on heart to recite pledge of allegiance . . .”
No he didn’t.

“Obama has issue with flag pin for lapel – doesn’t want to wear his brand of patriotism . . .”
Good for him.

“Obama hasn’t had any pride in US despite all the opportunities provided and the each continue to reap. . . .check”
Nonsense.
**
“Hate America – check”
You know what? It’s you and people like you that hate America. Truth is, you hate far-right types hate everything about America.
**
“cry victim of social degredation/economic exploitation/political oppression – check”
You’re just making this up as you go along, aren’t you?
**
“…and above all don’t dare ever question their patriotism.”
Yep, you can make anything up on this website, and none of your far-right will question its truth.

“Definitely fits the campaign video by “Muslim American’s for Barack Obama!”
It’s Americans, not American’s – dimbulb.

“0bama (that’s ZER0bama,cuz he’s an empty suit) is

So do you plan any substantive arguments any day soon? Or are you just going continue with the infantile insults?
**
“BTW,the Congressional Record on his votes indicates
he’s the MOST liberal Rep.More so than Fatboy Kennedy or the other windbag John Kerry…now that’s
something to take notice of !”
Wrong, wrong wrong, wrongety-wrong.
From Media Matters…
“Summary: MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan claimed that if Sen. Barack Obama (IL) wins the Democratic presidential nomination, Republicans will “tear him apart because … he has the most liberal voting record in the United States Senate.” Buchanan was presumably referencing the National Journal’s 2007 vote rankings that claimed Obama was the “most liberal senator in 2007,” but he did not mention that the Journal changed its methodology and has acknowledged a flaw in a previous vote rating. Buchanan also did not note a study that ranked Obama as tied with Sen. Joe Biden as the 10th “most liberal” senator last year.”
You people can’t just keep making this up for ever you know. Eventually you are going to get called out on it.

“P.S.–Don’t forget,she also said “our” soul’s are

I think you should ask for a ‘Sieg heil’ because that is most in keeping with your political standpoint.

No Pasarani! Can’t stand the report from the field. I’ve seen you close up. The Vietnamese report I mentioned was on CBS’ 60 Minutes about five months ago, not exactly a center of accurate reporting, but, that’s what CBS said about the yellow town. You are a bold faced racist liar.

John Cunningham on February 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm

No Pasaran;
All you just showed me was a diagram which may be all well and good but it still doesn’t explain how Obama manifests himself as a moderate conservative. I need legitimate facts.
For all we know, if Hugo Chavez decides to run for office in the U.S.A., you would probably be voting for him, would you? Maybe you are right to a certain when to catagorized Obama as a moderate conservative b/c so far he didn’t threat to shut down conservative media bases or to silence anyone with opposing views yet as Chavez is doing in Venezuela.

American Sabrah on February 19, 2008 at 12:37 pm

Wow. You know when a prominent White person makes some sort of unfortunate or ill-advised remark that somehow touches on race, there’s always a cadre of tender-skinned and loud-mouthed Black folks who seem to always misconstrue what was said and add all kinds of racist connotations to the words that really weren’t there in the first place? You should, because those types of Black folks (as well as Black folks in general) frequently get vilified on this site.
However, I see commentators on this site falling into the same trap. I fail too see how Michelle Obama’s ill-advised remark can be viewed as “spewing racial hatred”, being a “traitor”, being “ashamed of America”, being psychotic, or a “socialist”. Huh??? It seems people are reading or wishing things into her words that aren’t there, just like the so-called “race-baiters” do all the time. As the old saying goes, “How you perceive things on the outside is a reflection of what you are on the inside.”
Besides, Black soldiers have served, fought, and died (and are still dying) in this country’s wars from the Revolutionary War to Iraq, so proof of how “proud” Black folks are of this country is not needed to be proved by Michelle Obama or anyone else.

JibberJabber on February 19, 2008 at 12:39 pm

HEY NO PASRANI – here is the truth about New Orleans, much like John Cunningham put it, from Black minister Jessie Lee Peterson.
Let’s say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:
1. What would you do?
2. What would you do if you were black?
Sadly, the two questions don’t have the same answer.
To the first: Most of us would take our families out of that city quickly to protect them from danger. Then, able-bodied men would return to help others in need, as wives and others cared for children, elderly, infirm and the like.
For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you’re black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, then you’ll probably wait for the government to save you.
This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.
No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.
Enter Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan. Jackson and Farrakhan laid blame on “racist” President Bush. Farrakhan actually proposed the idea that the government blew up a levee so as to kill blacks and save whites. The two demanded massive governmental spending to rebuild New Orleans, above and beyond the federal government’s proposed $60 billion. Not only that, these two were positioning themselves as the gatekeepers to supervise the dispersion of funds. Perfect: Two of the most dishonest elite blacks in America, “overseeing” billions of dollars. I wonder where that money will end up.
Of course, if these two were really serious about laying blame on government, they should blame the local one. Responsibility to perform ? legally and practically ? fell first on the mayor of New Orleans. We are now all familiar with Mayor Ray Nagin ? the black Democrat who likes to yell at President Bush for failing to do Nagin’s job. The facts, unfortunately, do not support Nagin’s wailing. As the Washington Times puts it, “recent reports show [Nagin] failed to follow through on his own city’s emergency-response plan, which acknowledged that thousands of the city’s poorest residents would have no way to evacuate the city.”
One wonders how there was “no way” for these people to evacuate the city. We have photographic evidence telling us otherwise. You’ve probably seen it by now ? the photo showing 200 parked school buses, unused and underwater. How much planning does it require to put people on a bus and leave town, Mayor Nagin?
Instead of doing the obvious, Mayor Nagin (with no positive contribution from Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco, the other major leader vested with responsibility to address the hurricane disaster) loaded remaining New Orleans residents into the Superdome and the city’s convention center. We know how that plan turned out.
About five years ago, in a debate before the National Association of Black Journalists, I stated that if whites were to just leave the United States and let blacks run the country, they would turn America into a ghetto within 10 years. The audience, shall we say, disagreed with me strongly. Now I have to disagree with me. I gave blacks too much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks to turn the Superdome and the convention center into ghettos, rampant with theft, rape and murder.
President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans’ black community taken action, most would have been out of harm’s way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves.
All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks’ moral poverty ? not their material poverty ? that cost them dearly in New Orleans. Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be repudiated ? they will only perpetuate this problem by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption. New Orleans, to the extent it is to be rebuilt, should be remade into a dependency-free, morally strong city where corruption is opposed and success is applauded. Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so.

Let’s not forget how Barack Obama refuses to wear an American flag pin, but prominently displays Che Guevarra flags in his Houston campaign office. Let’s see – the American flag is taboo, but Communist flag with Commie murderer emblazoned on it is ok. I get it.

Jibber jabber, we’re not talking about normal black people, we’re talking about “those blacks”. Now, no doubt some will take that as I mean those that act white. I couldn’t have done 15 years in the military and drive a taxi for 18 years and come away with the thinking that “they’re all alike”. Normal people are all alike.

John Cunningham on February 19, 2008 at 1:16 pm

I really fail to see how continually showing this picture of Michelle Obama, with the pursed lips and unflattering hair does anything but encourage the racists trolls on this site from spouting on unintelligently. Really, what does this picture tell us? That she looks different? There are plenty of photos out there on the net in which she looks at least average and at times attractive.
I can appreciate the shot of Hillary stuffing her face, now that is funny. But this photo of Michelle Obama has as much to do with her opinions as “Hussein” as a middle name does to showing us anything about Barrack Obama. There is more than enough to disapprove of in Obama’s proposed policy planks than to resort to racial pandering. I’ve seen plenty of photos of the pair where they look lovingly and supportive of one another. I think they seem like fine people. I just believe that Obama’s positions on immigration, naive views on Iraq and fiscal policy should be enough for people to disqualify (or qualify if that’s your bent) him from their consideration.
This whole business of posting a photo of Obama’s wife in which she looks admittedly hideous smacks of focusing on looks/appearance/race. It is much different than posting unflattering photos of McCain, Clinton or Huckatubby. Just dump that photo; it’s only about race and nothing else. There is more than enough to go on here with Obama’s policies.
Here’s a question? Do you believe you can be proud to be an American but not proud of your country? How proud did you feel in the Carter years of the country’s direction? The fact is if you disapprove of this country’s direction, regardless of your left or right position, you might not be proud. I don’t see anything wrong with what she said; I’m again more disturbed by her husband’s proposed policies.
My pal NP as usual makes his points, then badgers others for insulting him, and then likens them to Nazis. Nice to follow up juvenile insults with your own.
I will say one final thing for all the posters on this article. If you don’t think blacks are still treated differently by society at large and still affected by the legacy of racism you are a fool and lying to yourself. Think of all the inspired postings based more on a photo of a black woman than positions for evidence of that. There is no doubt that African-Americans share in the responsibility for their socio-economic status, and that many of the social ills are self-wrought. Getting out of that economic predicament is the question (affirmative action vs. self-propelled economic empowerment); however, how African-Americans arrived there is not in question. From this country’s founding to just forty-four years ago they had little choice, and if you don’t believe that would impact a forty-year old woman or man today, you have no perspective.
For more evidence that race affects our perspective, look no further than this comment:
“They wanted to stay in New Orleans so they could loot.”
It was the poor, disabled, and at times wealthy (those in hotels), that didn’t have access to transportation that remained. Additionally, a lot of people stayed where the ground was higher and they had generators. There was a lot of bad judgment shown, especially by all the levels of government, and I’m sure a few knuckleheads wanted to stay and loot. But poor people without vehicles and money (mainly black) were the ones who didn’t make it out. Were the whites that died in Mississippi and in retirement homes in Louisiana sticking around to loot? Looting and lawlessness was a huge problem, but the fact is that those tens of thousands at the Superdome and Convention Center were literally dying to get out, not looting.

“All you just showed me was a diagram which may be all well and good but it still doesn’t explain how Obama manifests himself as a moderate conservative. I need legitimate facts.”
As opposed to what? Illegitimate facts?
Well anyway, let’s see…
Is Obama advocating redistribution of wealth to the proletariat? Nope.
Is he advocating the creation of a welfare state that will protect and nurture the people “from the cradle to the grave?” Nope.
Is he advocating widespread nationalization of essential strategic resources? Nope.
Is he advocating worker representation in every boardroom? Nope.
Is he advocating an end to all immigration controls? Nope.
Is he advocating a 37 hour working week?
Nope.
Not much of a Lefty, is he?

“For all we know, if Hugo Chavez decides to run for office in the U.S.A., you would probably be voting for him, would you?”
Yes, probably.
**
“Maybe you are right to a certain when to catagorized Obama as a moderate conservative b/c so far he didn’t threat to shut down conservative media bases or to silence anyone with opposing views yet as Chavez is doing in Venezuela.”
Actually no Chavez didn’t do that. He withdrew the government license from the TV station, but that station is still available to Venezuelans via satellite.
Now given that the station was actively advocating the violent removal of a democratically elected Venezuelan government via a coup d’etat, I don’t think that it was unreasonable to remove the government license. If MSNBC advocated violent revolution tomorrow, the American government’s reaction would be much the same – don’cha think?

“Let’s not forget how Barack Obama refuses to wear an American flag pin…”
Wearing a stoopid pin in your lapel doesn’t make you a patriot. It’s a substitute for patriotism for people who are too stupid to think.
**
“…but prominently displays Che Guevarra flags in his Houston campaign office. ”
He didn’t, a woman in one of his many campaign offices did. As is her right, if you are pretending that America still has some kind of freedom of expression.
**
“Let’s see – the American flag is taboo..”
He never said that. He said that he no longer wears a pin because it’s a substitute for real patriotism.
“…but Communist flag with Commie murderer emblazoned on it is ok. I get it.”
You get nothing.
It’s not a communist flag, and Che was not a murderer, he’s a revolutionary hero.
(And of course, Obama din’t authorize the placement of the flag anyway.)

No Pasaran! on February 19, 2008 at 2:03 pm

NP, Che was not a murderer? He out murdered Castro, that’s why Castro asked him to leave Cuba. He murdered his way through every Central American country being chased from one to the other until they finally caught up with him in I think Peru or Bolivia. Don’t tell me I didn’t see or hear what I saw or heard back then. I’m not getting it from an attempted re-writing of history. I read first hand accountings from newspapers and saw it on the evening news. Back when news reporting was not written with an agenda. You’re off the rails.

John Cunningham on February 19, 2008 at 2:14 pm

“My pal NP as usual makes his points, then badgers others for insulting him, and then likens them to Nazis. Nice to follow up juvenile insults with your own.”
I don’t badger people for insulting me, if they weren’t insulting me I would be doing something wrong.
I don’t liken them to being nazis – they ARE nazis. Look at the racist filth on this thread, how can you deny that these people are anything but carpet-munchers? You can’t be a racist without being a nazi, and of course vice versa.

“You’re off the rails.”

SCHLUSSEL HEADLINE: “Michelle Hussein Obama Says She’s Been Ashamed of the U.S. for Decades”
Sure, that’s what she said.

Audacious on February 19, 2008 at 3:31 pm

Ok I was just brushing past this story until “Yes” Pasaran (what the hell does that mean anyway??) just had to ignite a fire in me. So listen up man.
Everyone…except you…has known me in this place for a long time, and I’m known for trying to speak out for the young black conservatives (yes I’m 25..been like this since 18!) who unforently don’t exist to the mainstream for “acting white”.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Obama can’t run this country out of a paper bag. His wife sickens me..the way she just parades about herself saying she’s ashamed to be an american, pretending she is the consience(spelling?) of black america.
Hey “yes” pasaran….tell me why your homie obama doesn’t have american flags in his office? I guess you’ll call that “Stoopid” too just like the flag pin.
You know….once agian, it’s hard to be a black person in america, when blacks like you always disgrace blacks like me with your race baiting, anti-american, death buster mindset. (oy..couldn’t resist a sailor moon reference!) With that said, even though I dislike John “Insane”, I have no choice but to vote for him to keep an inexperinced moron like Obama from running america.

More nonsense from Squirrel3D. Ms. Obama said nothing of the kind. You take Schlussel’s smear of a headline and mindlessly repeat it. This is what smear merchants do. Congratulations.

Clearly, She is not a supermodel – her eyelids and lips are inflated beyond reasonable measure and on the photo where she is smiling her upper teeth are protruding more than of a horse. Leave admiration for her ambiguous beauty to B.H.O.
The question is – how many thousand years blacks of USA will – and will be allowed to – cry loud about the age of their ansestors’ slavery here to pump off USA more benefits? In Mauritania they are not allowed to do so, and yet until recently slavery there (and slaves there usually were blacks) was a part of the constitution. But even after abolition of slavery there more than 20 years ago, slavery in Mauritania continues as normally as ever before.
If not every man living today has at least one slaveowner among his ansestors, every man has plenty of slave ansestors – just because slaves were hundreds times more than slaveowners.
And non-blacks, living in the present time, cannot be in fault for whatever has been done 200, 300, 400 years ago. Every civilized law on earth states: only a man guilty in something may be a subject for punishment, but not his son, or brother, or father.
Shame on black racists!

MarcAurelio on February 19, 2008 at 5:00 pm

Gotta love the resident libs that lurk here: They’ve turned Hillary, little Dennis and the Obamas into conservatives, cringed in horror over criticism of the sainted Obamas, played the “racsist/nazi/300 years of oppression” card (zzzzz), graduated Che to “hero” status, corrected a poster’s spelling (despite mispelling some words themselves), pumped up Chavez (lol) and whined about “insults” all the while hurling their own. At least our lefty friends provide some comic relief to the very tragic circumstances we find ourselves in regarding our (you know-us racist, bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic conservatives) total lack of choice this election season. C-c-c-cant we all just get along?

Southernops on February 19, 2008 at 5:09 pm

In all fairness, the picture. If you look at the both of them they both look bleary eyed and exhausted as one would look after a day of standing on their feet. Looks like they just got finished a rubber chicken dinner and they’re beginning to nod off. “When can I go lay down?”

John Cunningham on February 19, 2008 at 5:59 pm

“Gotta love the resident libs that lurk here”
There are no liberals here at all. If you are referring to me I’m a Socialist, not a Liberal.
**
“They’ve turned Hillary, little Dennis and the Obamas into conservatives..”
They???
Who is ‘they’ ???
Obama and Clinton are conservatives, as I have proved conclusively. You’ll notice that for all the hysteria on this thread nobody has even attempted to disprove what I said.
**
“…cringed in horror over criticism of the sainted Obamas.
“Cringed in horror? Where? when?
**
“..played the “racsist/nazi/300 years of oppression” card.”
Yes it’s boring for you guys, because you are sleazy racist scumballs.
**
“..graduated Che to “hero” status.
Che is a hero for countless millions of anti-fascists.
Which of course is why you people hate him.
**
“corrected a poster’s spelling (despite mispelling some words themselves), pumped up Chavez (lol) and whined about “insults” all the while hurling their own.”
Nowhere have I “whined about insults” – as you would know if you had the power of reason. I think you people lie so often, you have fudged the line betwen truth and reality.
**
“At least our lefty friends provide some comic relief to the very tragic circumstances we find ourselves in regarding our (you know-us racist, bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic conservatives) total lack of choice this election season.”
Friends? What ‘friends’?
You have no choice because the world has moved on. Your particular brand of far-right christian hatred is dead in the water. You people are dinosaurs screaming abuse at a world you no longer understand. Your policies have failed, your leaders have failed you, and now EVEN AMERICA is turning against you.
**
‘”C-c-c-cant we all just get along?”
Why on Earth would I want to ‘get along’ with the likes of you?
You make my skin crawl.

Anyway, this has been a lot of fun, but it’s twenty to one in the morning, and I’ve got an early appointment later this morning. So I’ll love you and leave you for now.
Sweet dreams.

No Pasaran! on February 19, 2008 at 6:43 pm

Well let me tell you something, you little white socialist. You make me sick, hell I doubt you’ve ever rode past a black community most of your life. Why not, afraid you’ll get shot? Vandalized? Or just can’t admit the fact that YOU KNOW 110% SHIT ABOUT THE BLACK COMMUNITY you piece of shit!!!
How can I even take nutjobs like you seroiusly, when you can’t even do research on the things I just told you about concerning the black community, nor what I said about one of Obama’s offices? Your a phony through and through, and yeah…go to your little appointment. I’m not suprised if I found on your on welfare so all these hard working people who comment here can pay for your 2 cent ass!!!

Squirrel3D on February 19, 2008 at 7:58 pm

Maybe Michelle would be happier in Sudan where the Arab Janjaweed are raping black women to breed them out? Sure black people in America have struggles today, especially without an education, but they pale in comparison to the violence in Africa committed against blacks by other blacks or Arabs.

Minnie Mouse on February 19, 2008 at 8:49 pm

I’m not sure I got who is who in the two penultimate statements – who is pro and who is contra whom?
To Squirrel3D:
You are talking about Sudan – Sudan and Sudan… – There is couple more appetizing environments of that range:
– S. Arabia – where blacks are accepted as quasi-slaves to work for their white masters (Arabs)
– Morocco – with some special provisions for African (Sub-Sahara) sex-slaves of the tender sex and tender age
– Mauritania – as I mentioned earlier.
In all these countries blacks are oppressed far beyond USA standards.
Do I have a pity over blacks there? – it’s difficult to say. When I contemplate about their fate, I always remember one day – bright day, and not evening, a little less than two years ago, when two black men attempted to rob me near my house pointing at me their guns. They both have been arrested later, while robbing somebody else, and their guns proved to be real, not toys, and illegal, of course. I have never been robbed or otherwise attacked by white, or Hindus, or Chinese, or Japanese, or Jew, or even Arab. But I have been attacked 11 times by blacks. I give only my own statistics and only concerning violence. I don’t count here two jackets I have “lost” while been volunteer in the church, serving to the needs of black’s community, as well as I don’t count here violent actions to which I have been only a witness but not a victim.

MarcAurelio on February 19, 2008 at 9:53 pm

How do you make Clinton, Obama, etc. “conservative”?
Use a graph from a group that attempts to map people’s political persuasions with questions like these: “If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations…. i’d always support my country, whether it was right or wrong…. no one chooses his or her country of birth, so it’s foolish to be proud of it…. our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races….the enemy of my enemy is my friend…. military action that defies international law is sometimes justified…. there is now a worrying fusion of information and entertainment.”
That’s p. 1 of 6. Incidentally the only alternatives are Strongly Agree, Agree, DIsagree and Strongly Disagree. And leftists claim conservatives lack nuance.

DocLiberty on February 19, 2008 at 11:42 pm

“Che was not a murderer”
No Pasaran! proves conclusively beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a liar, and therefore everything he asserts can be dismissed as lying horseshit.
