Obamboozled: Did B Hussein O Steal Speeches From Racist Spike Lee Movies?

By Debbie Schlussel
It sure looks like it. Do you really want a Prez whose ideas for this country are stolen from racist, anti-Semitic Spike Lee’s movies glorifying Nation of Islam leaders? (Thanks to reader David for the tip!)

Watch the whole video. It’s well done to the end. Do you really want this apparent imitator of Denzel Washington imitating Malcolm X?
So let me get this straight, the man who wants to be leader of the free world claims he doesn’t like the Nation of Islam. But he likes to imitate its leaders as portrayed in movies?!
G-d help us.
Can you really afford to have this phony as the next President of the United States?
Ya been Bamboozled. Ya been hoodwinked.
–“Barack Hussein Obama: There Will Be Bamboozling.”

“There’s a sucker born every minute” and Obama plays well to that audience.
Obama is the populist Harvard version of a Jesse Jackson/Mike Huckabee combo. Fear this man.

That song by Living Color, “The cult of personality” comes to mind. This guy plagurises everyone. Like Billy Cunningham said, “The people who watch Dancing With The Stars, and American Idol, are going to choose the next president. ” I’d also like to add to that list: GUILTY WHITE PEOPLE. The kind that watch Roots every year. Watch him dance with Ellen. Watch Maria talk nice, Oprah likes him, etc, etc.

Is there a single Black Politician that WON’T manipulate White Guilt Leftists for all the money and political power they don’t deserve? That ISN’T racist against Whites? That ISN’T out for revenge against Whites,that they childishly believe they MUST get, and will never be happy until they get it?( For all the slavery,and other brutalities – that,ironically, their Arab/Muslim so-called “brothers” are FAR guiltier of )

OldSchoolW on February 20, 2008 at 11:46 pm

Obama uses the word “bamboozled,” and damn, look at that, there’s footage of Denzel Washington as Malcolm X using the same word. They both use the word “hoodwinked” as well.
And the Schlussel headline blares, with a straight face: “Obamboozled: Did B Hussein O Steal Speeches From Racist Spike Lee Movies?”
Schlussel, I love you. You are precious. There is absolutely no one else on the Internet who provides the entertainment you do.

Audacious on February 21, 2008 at 12:05 am

Of course they are far guiltier than us. Dar Fur is currently underway. But discussing that isn’t as popular.
I heard somebody in Living Color died, but I could be wrong. One hit wonders in any case. That guitar propelled that album past the Rolling Stones Steel Wheels back in the day(90?) The video of the dudes dreadlocks flying around like a maniac was kind of cool too.

samurai on February 21, 2008 at 12:07 am

Coming up on the comments below. “He’s racist against whites!” “He’s an empty suit!” “All style, no substance!” “Do we really want a President with the middle name Hussein?” “A vote for Obama is a vote for Osama” and all the rest.
When Obama takes office in January of 2008, the bigoted nonsense on this website of course will continue. He’s determined to capture bin Ladin, finally, and when he does, how will the posters here spin it?
I love this website.

“Is there a single Black Politician that WON’T manipulate White Guilt Leftists for all the money and political power they don’t deserve?”
OldSchoolW, tell us why a black politician doesn’t deserve money and political power.

Audacious on February 21, 2008 at 12:20 am

Politicians, whether Black or White, will manipulate whoever and whatever they have to to stay in power. For example, wasn’t it George Wallace who, after losing an election to a staunch bigot, said he would never be “out-niggered” again? Black politicians, like most other politicians, do what they do to get re-elected and gain power and influence. Most do not act out of “revenge”, which is another fallacy promoted in White nationalist/supremacist Websites and literature to justify their hatred of Blacks. And if Black politicians are out for revenge, then “doing well” is the best revenge, and unfortunately, Black folks have not done so well under a lot of these Black politicos.
Now, I’m Black, been Black all my life, and been in the Christian church all my life , and I have never heard any non-Muslim Black person refer to Arab/Muslims as “our brothers”. Most Black folks have the same feelings and stereotypes about Arab/Muslims as the rest of the American population. Again, that’s another fallacy promoted by folks with an bigoted agenda who actually have no real knowledge of Black folks at all. If they did, they would know of the antipathy that has existed for years between Black Muslims and Black Christians in our community. I know….I’ve experienced it firsthand. But people tend to see what they want to see. Some paranoid Black folks still think that the “White man” is out to get them and is still holding them down, and some White folks believe all Black folks hate them and are out for revenge. As the book of Proverbs warns, itÔø?s best to stay away from such angry people filled with hate.
As far as accusing Sen. Obama of using lines from a so-called racist movie, the “bamboozled” line from the Malcolm X movie has become a pop culture staple, like so many other movie lines have done. For example, people (including myself) love quoting lines from Casablanca, the same movie in which a White woman called a grown-ass Black man on the piano a “boy”. There are so many other examples in which movies with what could be called “racist” content have produced many classic lines that have become part of pop culture. To somehow accuse Obama of “imitating Denzel Washington who was imitating Malcolm X” seems kind of a reach.

JibberJabber on February 21, 2008 at 12:31 am

B. Hussain Ubama is no better than Chairman Hillary Clinton I or “The Hound of Soros” McCain.
They’re all going to attempt to ruin our sovereignty and country. Congress is a joke; a den of thieves, failed businessmen, and folks with bad credit. Bureaucrats are useless, unemployable, lazy, willful servants with no accountability. The judiciary is still an unchecked oligarchy. The welfare system is bankrupting the nation…
And yet, we the people are still fighting on strong. Living happy lives. Hussain, Chairman Hillary and the rest of the thieves cannot suppress real freedom. It belong to us – no matter what!
Laws and regulations cannot penetrate the mind the heart. Every oppressed person has within themselves the means to their liberty (Shakespeare taught me that). They can’t track you all the time. They can’t regulate you totally – there’s always something missed in legislation.
This evil (yes, evil) that is rising must fail. It’s desined. It’s the nature of evil to fail and end.
B. Hussain is just a human being: exactly like you and I. He’s not any better or worse, but an equal… who embraces fantasy and emotion over common sense and normal social etiquette.

bhparkman on February 21, 2008 at 3:44 am

Well I was up all night trawling through all of Obama, and Malcolm’s speeches and Spike Lee movie scripts.
I’ve uncovered crucial evidence that Obama has plagiarized both of these great men. I can demonstrate quite conclusively that Obama has used the following words previously used by X and Lee.
The plagiarized words are as follows..
Shocking isn’t it?

Too bad he didn’t use another Malcom X quote…”You, today, have — are in the hands of a government of segregationists, racists, white supremacists who belong to the Democratic party, but disguise themselves as Dixiecrats. A Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat. ”

dm60462 on February 21, 2008 at 7:50 am

Denzel Washington was great in that movie. I can do a great “Al Pacino as Scarface”, that doesn’t mean I condone drug dealing. I’m a McCain guy but this is a stretch…you can do better.

Derek Kreindler on February 21, 2008 at 10:06 am

Dear Debbie,
You are an idiot. This plagiarism talking point is just ridiculous. That was a pretty amazing leap to go from politics to words said in a movie to Spike Lee to racism…so therefore Obama blah, blah, blah.
Come on. You sound like a child. A dumb one.

Juantarde on February 21, 2008 at 10:24 am

I am no Obama fan. Yet, I don’t see anything unusual about his lifting lines from other rabble-rousers of yesteryear for effect. That is not the scandal to me. All public speakers inter-mix the the lines and points of others as they see useful (yes this video makes BO seem comical in just how much is not original). Almost every great speaker that I have ever heard (even in church) will say: There is very little under the sun that you will ever hear is “new” (original).
The “newness” of Obama is the present “packaging” which is already getting old. Barak’s campaign is one endless platitude about hope, the future, us being the change etc. The mental condition of the target audience allows it to receive this tripe as political manna and it swoons. The scandal is that his followers and the MSM receive/pass it off as substantive.
What is most pathetic is that we will have to choose between BO and McCain. Now that’s a “choose your poison” scandal.

BB on February 21, 2008 at 10:29 am

This fellow Obama is really dangerous. He is playing to the fears and dreams of all the Leftist MoveOn, Media Manure influenced emotion based voters.
He is promising change. His listeners understand this as either – all my debts will be paid, I’ll get over my addiction, now my girl will really love me etc. There is no possible way that he can bring any substantive change that will do anything but create greater ruin and danger for America.
He has promised to close Gitmo, prevent torture of terrorists even if it means more innocent civilians die here and he wants to impoverish us by giving away almost a trillion dollars to African and other tyrants to “help” the poor. Any money that has ever gone there has ended up in the hands of the tyrants at the expense of the populace.
He believes in the false religion of global warming. Even if the U.S. wanted to do something (which they shouldn’t) China, Russia and India will never do anything so only we and our weakened economy will suffer.
In short, this man is all bluster and no substance and potentially and great danger to the peace and prosperity of America.

re: Living Color
Their guitarist (Vernon Reid) was terrible.
I could never understand the hype this guy enjoyed from the MTV crowd and other well-known guitarists. His ‘technique’ was appalling, almost spastic. And his tone was rather harsh & brittle.
Methinks there was a good amount of weird white guilt involved, especially when he was compared to Jimi Hendrix. Reid was not Hendrix, and neither is Kravitz.
I also recall a quote from either Reid, or the singer (Corey Glover) from their heyday: “When people said ‘disco sucks’, what they were really sayings was ‘black people suck’.”
That’s what they said.

guitarguy on February 21, 2008 at 11:00 am

Whichever one of them said it, they were way off. I knew plenty of Black folks like myself who hated Disco also, because it was one of the most damaging things that ever happened to Black popular music. Disco literally killed off soul, R&B, and funk. It literally took the “soul” out of Black popular music. And what it did to Black radio was atrocious. Stations I grew up listening to began to change their format and their monikers to “Disco 101.5FM” or some similar mess. However, two landmark things did arise out of this musical wasteland and both were at the opposite end of the spectrum….Hip Hop, with its harsher and harder beats, arose partially in response to the inane “gaiety” of Disco, and the “Quiet Storm” format emerged and became extremely popular on Black radio, using jazz-tinged R&B ballads (such as those by Luther Vandross) to offset the constant soulless Disco beats that were prevalent in radio during the late 1970’s. So to counter either Reid or Glover, I feel Disco just plain sucked.

“OldSSchoolW,please tell us why a black politician doesn’t deserve money and political power.”
A Democrat black politician absolutely doesn’t.Why, you ask?
Detroit,Marion Barry,Newark,Cleveland, Gary,Ind.Baltimore,New Orleans( LONG before Katrina ),Atlanta,Philadelphia,Most major cities in Florida,Memphis,Houston,Chicago,Indianapolis,Oakland,Los Angeles,St.Louis/East St.Louis….want me to go on?
Forty years of destruction in cities such as these, all at the hands of black mayors and their cronies ,both deliberately and through just plain incompetence – and still destroying with no end in sight, because they have been allowed to get totally away with it, because of their race; no matter how destructive a job they’re doing, just Blame Whitey,and all the criticisms immediately stop. So much for “racism” and “oppression”.

OldSchoolW on February 21, 2008 at 12:05 pm

I wouldn’t compare anyone in Living Color to Jimmy Hendrix, but I would compare Hussein Obama to Malcom x. Especially after the anti American comment his wife made. YOU CAN’T DRESS HER COMMENT UP NO MATTER WHAT. THE ACORN DON’T FALL TOO FAR FROM THE TREE. HIS STYLE IS TAILOR MADE FOR THE UNINFORMED AND GUILTY WHITE LIBS. NO THERE ISN’T A BIT OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIM AND CLINTON, AND JUST A BIT MORE WITH MCAIN. At least MCAIN has served his countries military and as Oliver North pointed out he went to Iraq to address the troops PRE SURGE, when it was still extremely hazardous. Nobody else running did that.

samurai on February 21, 2008 at 12:10 pm

OldSchoolW says, “no matter how destructive a job they’re doing, just Blame Whitey,and all the criticisms immediately stop.”
Huh?? Can you site some recent examples of that? I lived in both Atlanta and Houston, and the political battles there were pretty intense, as the media in both cities never failed to take shots at the mayor if they were going down the wrong path. I don’t remember “blaming Whitey” stopping any criticism (and it didn’t stop former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell from being indicted and going to jail). And I don’t remember Atlanta or Houston being on verge of “destruction”….both seemed to be very prosperous cities during my time there.
I have also seen the new young mayors of Washington DC and Newark NJ working hard to overturn years of cronyism and corruption and both still catch hell…mainly from other Black folks. “Blaming Whitey” is not going to solve the problems of their cities or get them off the hook if they do a poor job. The problems they face were not created overnight and will not be solved overnight. Much of the criticism Mayor Nagin of New Orleans received was from other Black folks, and rightly so. As someone recently said to me, for high-achieving Black folks, “blaming Whitey” played out in the 1990’s….no one is going to listen to anyone saying “The White Man kept me down” in the 21st century unless they are truly delusional. At a time when Black folks like Oprah Winfrey and Robert Johnson are raking in billions and Black entrepreneurship is at an all time high, the person who “Blames Whitey” for their failures is either a fool or a liar. And as I said before, any person, Black or White, who still does believe “blaming Whitey” will get Black politicians off the hook today is still replaying old 20th century tapes in their head and/or reading some very racially slanted literature.

No offense meant to anyone’s appreciation for the music of ‘Living Color’. But it does remind me of something a former co-worker said to me (after he made the mistake of asking my opinion on matters musical):
“Never discuss music with a musician.”
Very funny, and very true.
(For what it’s worth: I’ve been playing since April 1971.)

Jibber Jabber,
I live in an outer suburb of Cleveland; and quite frankly, the inner city, that is run by and for black people, is like its own African Republic. The problem is that precisely the type of people who “blame whitey” are the only types of people left there – welfare leeches and ne’er do-wells who happen to be black. You see, the successful black people left along with the successful white people; yet the race-baiting mayors, councilmembers, and even federal level clowns like Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones, still manage to blame whitey for everything and continually get elected. In fact, Tubbs-Jones ran unopposed in ’04, despite her abysmal record.
Cleveland City schools spend more money on schools than nearly any district in the country, yet are basically incubators for the funcitonally illiterate until they either drop out or graduate unable to read a restaurant menu. Cleveland has a 3rd world style government; with 24 councilmembers in a city of around 450,000. Columbus has over 1 million people, and has 6 city council members. The cycle of destruction in Cleveland lasts mainly because black politicians have managed to “hoodwink” the black underclass left in Cleveland, as well as white-guilt liberals, into not holding them accountable.

JasonBourne81 on February 21, 2008 at 3:02 pm

anti-Semitic? I don’t ever recall the Nation of Islam a black centered organization on the Islamic faith being anti-jews.
To say Spike Lee is a racist, or insist that his movies are racist is downright foolish.
You really should do some research on the nation of islam, malcolm x, and barack obama for that matter because your information is completely off.

jefo on February 21, 2008 at 3:22 pm

Farrakhan has a long history of Jew hating. I once attended a Farrakhan speech in an auditorium in Newark NJ. Speaking of Jews he said, “I am not an enemy of the Jews, but if one of them should happen to assassinate me I know what you will do.” The Fruit of Islam guard sitting directly behind me said in a voice seething with hatred, “We’ll burn down their Synagogues! Burn em all down! Goddamn, right!”
I looked up at Farrakhan on the stage and thought, this must have been what it was like listening to Hitler speak at a rally in Nazi Germany.

FreethinkerNY on February 21, 2008 at 5:35 pm

This montage was excellent. Thanks for the work! It speaks Volumes.
But guys, the big question is not about race. It is not about gender. It is about who has the best mind to temporarily occupy the most important public position in the world, one that may affect the quality of the lives of your children and grandchildren. What you want in that position is someone who has real integrity and substance. This montage raises some questions about BO but let’s admit that the Phrases he ‘stole’ are not exactly proprietary (someone’s property) or the result of some original scholarly research. So “plagiarism” is a not a term that could be properly applied here. Nor is it “stealing,” in my opinion. I can understand how Democrats could overlook the above when their other choice is Hillary who tries to conceal the real workings of her evil, male-hating, communist mind behind stupid platitudes.

BBJR on February 21, 2008 at 11:36 pm

Dear JasonBourne81,
I know Cleveland very well too – lived there once for three blessed years. Cannot ever forget the unique experience even several years afterwards.
Blacks are burglarizing, vandalizing, destroying, stealing everything there. All council members, all city inspectors, all judges and prosecutors there predominantly black, and all well ripe for prison. They take bribes quite OPENLY. I have seen under four circumstances. Black prosecutors never start a case against black, who crimed against non-black, and are lenient even in case of murder. Some say – too many blacks in prison? – No – not enough.
Public schools, especially on east side and in East Cleveland all are black and all are terrible. Students, as young, as 9, or even 8 y/o, sell illegal drugs not only on the street, but in the very schools. And don’t tell me that it cannot be true – I witnessed it myself many times. During first three hours of school at least half of kids in the class is sleaping – head on the elbow. I have seen it myself. They are too busy during the night. And their night activities I also witnessed many times. So – don’t tell me.
It was several years ago, but my friends, who are still living there, are telling me by phone and email that situation is actually going worse.
On the other hand – and let me speak frankly about it – the unemployment in Cleveland, as well as in my current city, is horrendous. Horrendous! Nothing to do with official 6 or 7 %. People need to live somehow – to eat, to pay, at least from time to time, for rent (they usually not pay at least half of the year and move from place to place, ruining small and affordable ladndords), for the utilities (they usually steal gas, electricity and water, but it’s not always come through smoothly). So – they break into houses (and now, as my friends inform me – even more often, since in Cleveland there are more and more abandoned houses, much more than even when I lived there) – they steal pipes, bathtubs, sinks, taps. faucets, showers, aluminum stripes, doors – everything. Sell drugs openly. I do remember that I have seen there many mini-brothels (whore-houses, as they called it, as I remember). How many times I overheard conversations between them (in the shop, gas station, library, court, etc. – on the topics like – how to treat gonorrhea. How many people I have seen in the summer time with the lesions characteristic for AIDS! And syphilis is raging.
And – illegal guns. Boys, as young as 12, have them, and, occasionally, use them.
And in the city, where I live now, too.
And the Mosque is always there, preying its fish in the dark water.

Yes, but Black Bigots,like those that have ruined cities like those I listed – from Coleman Young up to today – are the TRULY sick bigots.And unlike myself, they have always had total protection to be as bigoted as they want,hence,the freedom( Which they claim they still don’t have!?!? )to destroy the cities they should never have been given charge of, slavery or no slavery,lynching or no lynching,segregation or no segregation. The words of the old ,so-called racist elders have been proven 100% true:They…can’t…run…the… place.

OldSchoolW on February 22, 2008 at 7:29 pm

Debbie, THANK YOU for this excellent clip showing just what a contrived, made up FRAUD Obama really is. The American people have been DUPED and it’s downright scary! Not only is Obama a copy cat candidate using the words of his buddy Patrick and also stealing lines Denzel in the Malcolm X movie, it’s very disturbing to see – like in the movie – that he has strong ties to extremist and radical political and church groups.
He claims to unite people across race lines, yet most every association he is affiliated with PROMOTES extremism and racism.
He is a member of the Trinity Church of Christ, ?headed by a former Black Muslim (Jeremiah Wright) who is a harsh anti-Israel advocate.? From their website, the church?s core mission is a ?non-negotiable commitment to Africa, and seeing the world through an African perspective.? **This mission apparently lacks any reference to the U.S., God or Jesus.
Blogger Ed Laskey quotes Wright as saying, ?The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for almost 40 years now,? and routinely compares Israel to apartheid South Africa and considers blacks ?The Chosen People?. Just last December, Wright gave extremist Louis Farrakhan the church?s Lifetime Achievement Trumpeteer Award. **Farrakhan is known for calling Judaism a ?gutter religion? and depicting Jews as ?white devils,? ?bloodsuckers?.
Wright also once traveled with Farrkhan to Tripoli to visit Col. Muammar al-Gaddafi, a known terror supporter.
George Soros, multibillionaire promoter of groups that have been consistently harsh and biased critics of the American-Israel relationship, supports Obama. A 2004 Accuracy in Media article by Cliff Kincaid, says Soros ?was convicted in France of insider trading and specializes in weakening or collapsing the currencies of entire nations for his own selfish interests.?
James Zogby, one of Obama?s campaign advisors, is the founder of the Arab American Institute and senior analyst with the Zogby polling firm. Discoverynetowrks.org says Zogby has ?repeatedly denounced Israelis and Jewish-Americans, while voicing support for a string of violent terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere.?
Zbigniew Brzezinski, the ex-national security adviser to Jimmy Carter, is Obama?s foreign policy adviser. Politico.com quotes Dr. Arie Kacowicz of the Hebrew University, saying that Brzezinksi has ?a history of certain hostility towards Israel, as seen in the first Camp David meetings of 1978.?
According to news24.com, Obama continues to have a strong relationship with his cousin, Ralia Odinga, head of Kenya?s Orange Democratic Movement who recently ran for President of Kenya.
And midnightsun.org says when Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi. The site also says Obama?s bias for Odinga was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila?s ?stooge.? **Note – when Raila Odinga lost the presidential election at the end of December 2007, he claimed the vote was rigged and his tribal followers went on murderous rampages. Dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire on New Years Day.
If Obama?s ties to controversial extremists isn?t a WAKE UP call for all Americans, I don?t know what is.
Thank you AGAIN and please keep up the good work.
Also folks should check out savagepolitics.com for a more UNBIASED perspective of the 08 race.

The bambooled video inspired this one. Taken from a clip of The Distinguished Gentleman, it’s a parody of an Obama acceptance speech, but it’s not far from the truth. There is no content to his speeches which is why this rings true.

No Pasaran,
It is quite obvious that you don’t want to take a substantive argument seriously. It will cause you to lose faith in your ill-conceived religion and your cliche-laden candidate. So you mock your opponents in the argument to avoid the serious issues.
The video clearly shows that B. Husein O. is pandering to his audiences as if they are a bunch of complete morons. If they lap it up like hungry cats lapping up milk, then they prove that they are a bunch of complete fools. What a shame! I believe that African-Americans are capable of rational, well-informed thought, but B. Husein O. makes them look like idiots.
Of course, I have not seen any of Spike Lee’s movies. I have read the reviews, however. I have not given them any credibility because he claimed that black professional athletes were paid less than white professional athletes immediately after Ken Griffey, Jr. had just signed the largest contract in major league baseball history. Anyone need any other proof that Spike Lee is a racist bigot? Add to that, his making of the Malcolm X biography. The trailers make the movie look like the black bigot’s version of that movie the the Ku Klux Klan used as a recruiting tool (the name of which I cannot remember–Birth of a Nation, perhaps).
To compare B. Husein O.’s platitudes to Spike Lee’s movie is quite infomative.

Loser on February 24, 2008 at 11:10 pm

I feel stupid, folks. I just did the sensible thing and went to wikipedia.org to find out tha the movie was, in fact, “The Birth of a Nation,” a film directed by D. W. Griffith. If you want to see the info on this film, follow this link:
I still maintain that Malcom X (Spike’s movie) is the black racist equivalent.

Loser on February 24, 2008 at 11:25 pm

“No Pasaran,
It is quite obvious that you don’t want to take a substantive argument seriously.”
Rest assured, should you ever post one, I’ll take it seriously.
“It will cause you to lose faith in your ill-conceived religion and your cliche-laden candidate.”
My atheism is not a religion, it’s a lack of religion. Obama is not my candidate because he’s far too right-wing for me. I would never vote for a conservative, even a moderate one like Obama.
“So you mock your opponents in the argument to avoid the serious issues.”
Well you tell me what the alleged “serious issues” are, and I’ll debate ’em.
“The video clearly shows that B. Husein O. is pandering to his audiences as if they are a bunch of complete morons. If they lap it up like hungry cats lapping up milk, then they prove that they are a bunch of complete fools. What a shame! I believe that African-Americans are capable of rational, well-informed thought, but B. Husein O. makes them look like idiots.”
So how does George W. Bush make white people look? After all it was white people that voted a man with an IQ of 96 into power not once – but twice!
“Of course, I have not seen any of Spike Lee’s movies…”
…but you are going to review then anyway. How very right-wing of you.
” I have read the reviews, however.”
Ohhhhhh, so that’s ok then.
” I have not given them any credibility because he claimed that black professional athletes were paid less than white professional athletes immediately after Ken Griffey, Jr. had just signed the largest contract in major league baseball history. Anyone need any other proof that Spike Lee is a racist bigot? ”
Huh? Is this what passes for logic in wingnut universe these days? The best way to demonstrate Lee’s alleged racism would be to show real proof of him saying or doing something racist, rather than quoting his views on baseball player’s salaries.
Just so that you know, refusing to bow down in front of white men, does not make black men racist.
“Add to that, his making of the Malcolm X biography. The trailers make the movie look like the black bigot’s version of that movie the the Ku Klux Klan used as a recruiting tool (the name of which I cannot remember–Birth of a Nation, perhaps).”
The trailers riiiiiight. I mean let’s not get carried away and actually watch the movie before we condemn it, hey?
You have the nerve to accuse me of avoiding substantive argument, while condemning out of hand as racist a movie you admit you have never seen!
“To compare B. Husein O.’s platitudes to Spike Lee’s movie is quite infomative.”
It tells us a lot about you, but precisely zero about Obama and Lee.

Fear is the basis of most arguments that try to get you to believe (or not believe) in something.
My first question is this: Have you ever either seen the film or read the book? I suggest reading the book, it is phenomenal. But as much as the book is an autobiographical account of Malcolm X’s rise to power in the Nation of Islam, I (and many scholars) would argue that the book is also about transformation. At the end of the autobiography, which unfortunately coincided with the end of X’s life, the man had undergone a significant spiritual transformation. After his Haj to Mecca and subsequent return to America, his ideas, speeches, etc. changed. Toward the end of his life he was transcending “racist” thought, feeling that he had been wrong in his past thinking. On his spiritual Haj, he was surrounded by whites, blacks, Arabs, and Asians with one purpose, to worship the same God. And the experience changed his life.
My second question: Have you ever heard these words? “YouÔø?ve been bamboozled. Snooked. Hoodwinked. Suffice it to say, youÔø?ve been somewhat misinformed. The shrimp that youÔø?ve been eating donÔø?t come from us. ItÔø?s pond-raised. Overseas Ôø?” These lines come from a commercial for the Southern Shrimp Alliance. So are they too being racist for using Malcolm X lines? The video Debbie Schlussel posted does not prove anything, not a great argument at all. She’s just tapping into the fear that most us have, and use when making decisions. Artists borrow from one another all the time…in film, literature, etc. It’s called intertextualism!
I couldn’t find the video for that shrimp commercial, but the link to an article is below. Just to back up my argument.

I have been following your commentaries on B. Obama – and am exceedingly grateful to you for your research – and boldness – in ‘putting it out there’. I very much share your aversion/suspicion/antipathy to the man – and, as well, I share your frustration with the many otherwise-intelligent friends and family members who seem to have fallen under the man’s spell.
Many have been seduced into his camp after reading his books, especially ‘Dreams of My Father.’ While I haven’t read the book, I have come across some excerpts from it that make me think that my intelligent friends and family have actually been ‘bamboozled and hoodwinked’ by rhetoric – and have not seriously thought about content. Now, it may be that these excerpts have been ‘cherry picked’ for their emotive content (and possibly taken out of context); but I do think they still present undercurrents to B. Obama’s personal identity that make him very much unsuited for the office of president of the United States. Some examples:
The book includes obvious undercurrents of racial ‘isolationism’: “there were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it
came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalto to the black masses, to strike out, and name names.” Perhaps choosing to hang out with the ‘black masses’ back in college was the factor that attracted BHO to Jeremiah Wright’s ‘unashamedly black’ church. Echoes of a ‘separatist’ (and therefore divisive) movement of earlier days.
And, then, probably even more relevant to modern times are the undercurrents seen in a couple of excerpts that suggest a stronger connection to Islam than the man admits to, saying, for instance the person who made him ‘proudest of all’ was his half-brother, Ray. “He converted to Islam”. Perhaps there was more to Ray’s conversion that we don’t know about; but, on the face of it, it seems a puzzling statement from someone who claims to follow another faith.
Another statement related to Islam that sent my ‘antenae’ up. And I ask you to read this following quote carefully; ‘parse’ it – that is, look out for what consitutes the subject of the paragragh, and then decide what is the ‘far-off land’ that BHO is working toward, this future new world that he is hoping to populate. “If Malcolm X’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation, that hope appeared in a distant future, in a far-off land. In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future and populate this new world.” If you look carefully at the grammar of this statement, it reads that the new world Obama is seeking to populate is, in fact, one where ‘some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam.’ Repeat: ‘as brothers in Islam.’ Now, that may just be an error in editing, an overlooked grammatical mistake – or it may well be a true indicator of the measure of the man.
In either case, since we are in these days dealing with the future of the country, common sense would insist on finding out more about Obama’s motives in making these statements. Perhaps then we might get to learn what are his real motives and what really makes the man tick.

I just paid an ‘interesting’ second visit to Pastor Wright’s Trinity Unity Church web-site. The first visit was two days ago, when I could swear I read a 10-point vision that was all about black values, black community, black anti-‘middleclassness’, black economics, etc, etc. Today’s 10-point vision, though, bore very little resemblance to that black-centered vision.
Can anyone tell me: did I just imagine that previous black liberation-style 10-point vision? or was it really there, and has now been changed? And if it has been changed, was it changed because TUCC has really changed their value system to one that is compatible with different peoples dwelling together in harmony? or is it simply a cosmetic change, put together quickly in response to this week’s broohaha?
These are indeed interesting times.

I figured that somebody would be creative enough to think of a movie and connect the obama words to spike lee’s joint. And I’m sure that John M. supportors are looking for reasons to not vote for Obama for McCain is not providing reasons why he should be any different from Bushs’ Admin. But this is not the way to go at it. Fact is every politician uses words of others who’ve spoken before them…McCain does the same on his smart days when he can remember to do so…If you want to do something creative like this…know that you can do the same for McCain.
Personally I dont think either one of them will hold their end of the bargain when elected…but I do feel that a focus on the middle class will produce a solid positive shift in our economy. for people to start hitting on his race or religious affiliations and his character lets me know that they cant argue with his plans for the US…the problem is not his background…its the state of the US….lets stay on the real issues and find out which of the two liars will possibly have a better effect on the house (which is the real leaders of the US) I think Democrats have a better chance to get things moving with the house right now than the repubs.
