“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

President Obama Invites Racists to White House

It’s hard to believe that after all the guff the “mainstream” media and the rest of the Left has given the Tea Party movement for supposedly being racist (even though the Tea Party movement includes black leaders such as Lloyd Marcus, and supports black candidates such as Allen West, Tim Scott, and Herman Cain), President Barack Obama, America’s second black president (Bill Clinton was the first, you will recall) has invited a couple of bigoted racists to the White House for a poetry event.

According to NH Journal, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr, who goes by the name “Common,” is a bigot who not only glorifies cop-killing and misogyny, but also opposes interracial marriage.

But he isn’t the only racist invited to the poetry event.

Jill Scott also opposes interracial dating and interracial marriage.

Of course, it became clear during the 2008 presidential campaign that racism, as long as it is against white people, is perfectly acceptable to Barack Obama. Obama sat for some 20 years under the hate-filled racist “preaching” of Reverend Jeremiah Wright who believes God should damn America. So it should be no surprise that Obama is obsessed with the color of people’s skin and harbors more than a little disdain for “white folks.”

Based on my experiences, I think most Americans have an opinion similar to mine when it comes to skin color: it just doesn’t matter.  I’ve worked with and had good friends with skin colors ranging from white, black, brown, red, and yellow.  My best man at my wedding was a black man who hails from Obama’s adopted hometown of Chicago.  My children’s favorite playmates for most of their lives have been several children whose skin happens to be black. I have known black jerks and white jerks; I have been blessed by wonderful black Americans and wonderful white Americans.  I have worked for and had working for me people of virtually every skin color on the globe. The color of our skin was probably the least relevant characteristic any of us bore; as Martin Luther King Jr said, what mattered most was the content of our character.

The American people–including much-demonized conservatives–really don’t care what color your skin is. What the American people care about is a person’s politics, what they believe in, what their values are, the things they hold dear.  That is why patriotic Americans reject Barack Obama (because he rejects everything we hold dear–our heritage, our love of the Constitution, our belief in liberty, our embrace of the free market, our expectation of law and order, our belief in traditional values, our conviction that America is the last best hope of humanity) and why patriotic Americans flock to patriotic Americans like Lloyd Marcus, Allen West, Herman Cain and others who love America like we do.  Unlike Barack Obama and his fellow bigots, we aren’t willing to allow skin color to dominate and control our relationships.

For all the incredible good that has come from America, it is true that perhaps the greatest sin of America was in harboring slavery and discrimination against black Americans for so many years.

Yet it seems that for some, the half a million American lives sacrificed in the contest to end slavery in the 1860s is still not enough blood to satisfy them.  For some, decades of favored treatment through affirmative action programs is not enough penance to make up for the racist discrimination forced on America primarily through members of the Democrat Party.

It would seem that Barack Obama, along with some of those he extends White House invitations to, is among those who bear animosity toward white Americans.  Everyone is entitled to their views, but is someone who holds ‘white folks” in disdain and considers racists and bigots worthy of a White House invitation really suitable to serve as the president of the United States?

2012 may be our first opportunity to correct the mistake of 2008, perhaps even by replacing one black president with another black American–one who does not have a chip on his shoulder against some Americans based on the light tone of their skin.

  1. As always, most of the real racism is on the left side of the fence.

    It’s now scientifically known that, genetically speaking, “race” is flat-out meaningless. This is another indication that “leftists” really don’t care about science, except as a concept they can (illegitimately) attach to their ideas in order to get people to accept them.

    “America’s second black president (Bill Clinton was the first, you will recall)”
    Wait, what?

  2. Theodore Roosevelt invited author and activist socialist Upton Sinclair to the White House and Roosevelt was no socialist. There are other examples of Presidents inviting controversial people to the W.H. .

  3. This is a reference to a 1998 statement by Nobel prize winner Toni Morrison who said in a New Yorker article that Clinton was “our first black President.” In fact, Clinton was blacker than most black people:

    African-American men seemed to understand it right away. Years ago, in the middle of the Whitewater investigation, one heard the first murmurs: white skin notwithstanding, this is our first black President. Blacker than any actual black person who could ever be elected in our children’s lifetime. After all, Clinton displays almost every trope of blackness: single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald’s-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas. And when virtually all the African-American Clinton appointees began, one by one, to disappear, when the President’s body, his privacy, his unpoliced sexuality became the focus of the persecution, when he was metaphorically seized and bodysearched, who could gainsay these black men who knew whereof they spoke? The message was clear “No matter how smart you are, how hard you work, how much coin you earn for us, we will put you in your place or put you out of the place you have somehow, albeit with our permission, achieved. You will be fired from your job, sent away in disgrace, and–who knows?–maybe sentenced and jailed to boot. In short, unless you do as we say (i.e., assimilate at once), your expletives belong to us.”

  4. Roosevelt had more socialist leanings than you might realize. Besides, that still doesn’t excuse Barack Obama’s racism, or his invitation to bring racists to the people’s White House.

  5. Don’t you understand? It’s the right kind of bigot!

    That’s the difference.

  6. What about Ronald Reagan inviting a man to perform at the White House who wrote a song about ‘ killing a man just to watch him die ‘. Don’t think Reagan personally believed that is good at all. But in Cash’s great Fulsom Prison Blues, he goes on to say that was wrong to kill just to watch a man die

    I took the time to look up Common’s poem that is beong quoted and Common does the same thing as Cash IF YOU READ THE ENTIRE POEM AND NOT JUST FOX SOUNDBITES. Common clearly says in the last four lines of this poem, that OF all those terrible things that were mentioned in the lyrics of the poem, that one SHOULDN’T do them, just like Cash did when he said he killed a man just watch him die and then said but that was wrong.

    Wonder why all the lines and intent of Common’s poem never was mentioned by the conservatives.

  7. I’m pretty sure that by the time President Reagan invited Johnny Cash to the White House, Cash had not only left behind his life of sin by that time but had also repudiated it. To the best of of my knowledge, Lynn has not repudiated his vile dialogue.

    I’m just not seeing any change of heart or redemption in at least one of Lynn’s pieces–if I’m not mistaken, the one being most commonly quoted: http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Common/A-letter-to-the-law

    Or here’s one with profanity, glorification of the racist Black Panthers, out of wedlock childbirth, and more: http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Common/A-song-for-assata Again, I don’t see any repudiation by the end of the song, or to this day by the “artist.”

    Or here’s another one filled with profanity and derogatory references to women: http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Common/Communism

    Or here’s yet another filled with profanity and talking about using drugs, using women, bashing in skulls, etc. http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Kanye-west-ft-common-and-talib-kweli/Get-em-high Very wholesome. Something our President and First Lady would definitely want the youth of America to emulate.

    Or one about getting drunk and “poking” his girlfriend: http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Kid-cudi-ft-common-and-kanye-west/Make-her-say-i-poke-her-face

    Maybe you’re right. Maybe conservatives should have taken a closer look at more of this guys “lyrics.”

    Sounds like just another thug, not all that unlike the one that sits in the Oval Office.

  8. You know what, Brian? All I have to know is that the “rap” and “hip hop” culture currently infecting America’s degenerate vegetable youth is a deadly poison. And, for this bast**d in the White House to even give that destructive “musical art form” the time of day in our White House is a testament to how very evil that loser, Obama, is. There is no comparison to ANY past presidents, Democrat or Republican. Obama is an anti-American maniac, and either you don’t see it, or you agree with him.

    We live here in South Mississippi where black people and young, stupid white punks feed on that evil, backward, illiterate garbage crap that I would not deign to call “music.”

    Brian, you are attempting to defend the indefensible (as usual).
