Citizen Burdens, Leadership Woes by Andrew Stergiou 11/19/2008
Focus America, Focus, Al-Qaeda No. 2 insults Obama with “racial epithet” the article is almost immediately posted on Yahoo News, via the Associated Press.
Yahoo Buzz and 1 hr 5 minutes later it received 562 votes to be buzzed and 192 poorly thought out responses many of which joined Al Qaeda in speaking their piece criticizing the president elect.
Many of those American critics of the Republican brand of lunacy continued to maintain the Karl Rove type slanders which were so prevalent during the 2008 elections.
Often as a radical socialist veteran of the counter intelligence attacks on the left which were perpetuated by the Democrats and Republicans I am a wait and see type of guy. Because it is nice to see what one jumps into as one of my cats learned as she jumped onto the stove to gorge herself on food I left there, I often wait and see to see how matters develop before I comment and act.
I don’t always have to wait to form my views through insight to understand because I am not one of these legalistic liberals weighing and balance all the supposed facts. I stop to weigh all the fact because I don’t claim people are objective I state in fact they are subjective
Existentialist and often irrationally emotional histrionic and demagogues weither they want to be or not.
Now twenty minutes after that article posted that article was buzzed 695 times and was commented on 247 times. Exponentially the drama increases, minute by minute, but for the most part, most of the people miss many of the subtle points raised by Al Qaeda which for the most part Americans write off in their contempt for the organization.
The number two of Al Qaeda has done what up until now no American in the mainstream press has done in relation to Barack, he put Obama into a traditional historical perspective by comparing him to Malcolm X. The same Malcolm X, celebrated in book form by Alex Haley.
Perhaps Ralph Nader compared Barack Obama to Malcolm X when he asked
The same Malcolm X, memorialized in the 1992 film of the same title, directed by Spike Lee, starring Denzel Washington as Malcolm X, Angela Bassett as Dr. Betty Shabazz, and Spike Lee as Shorty.
The same Malcolm X movies nominated for numerous awards:
Berlin International Film Festival award,
Nominated Golden Berlin Bear Casting Society of America award, Chicago Film Critics Association Awards
Golden Globes, USA
Kansas City Film Critics Circle Awards
MTV Movie Awards
Political Film Society, USA
Southeastern Film Critics Association Awards
I hope my reader forgive me as I reprocess the historic cultural data related to the film Malcolm X because all too many Americans are perhaps inclined towards selective memories which is the focus of this article.
The same Malcolm X immortalized and idolized by tens of thousands of kids wearing their “X” embroidered insignia bearing baseball caps insignias, just like Master Spike Lee by my fellow native born Brooklynite.
Undoubtedly Al Qaeda was inappropriately quoting Malcolm X in their repeating his comments regarding “house negroes and field negroes”. Inappropriate because unfortunately as feudalists Al Qaeda, doesn’t give a damn about “house negroes” or “field negroes” regardless of what country they live in, nor even if they are Moslem. What Al Qaeda only cares about is their self-serving radical Islamic agenda like when they bombed the World Trade Center and didn’t care who was in that building, “house negroes”, ”field negroes”, my mama, your mama, pregnant, or not, or Mohamed’s Jesus’s , Mose’s, or Buddha’s mama. In fact Al Qaeda was so ignorant that they did not care as to the tactical and strategic political effects of their terror attacks, merely so long as it was a self-glorified attack.
Malcolm X clip on youtube.com giving his speech on “house negroes and field negroes”:
So what is at stake? Several issues are at stake!
If someone was to ask President elect Barack Obama if he had ever seen the 1992 Spike Lee movie “Malcolm X” perhaps he would say he had, but do all the white sensitive folks want to raise the issue? I think not especially with them spinning all the “important issues” relating to the economy now.
Do the flag waving redneck yahoos of America want to admit that they have joined an unholy alliance with Al Qaeda, the radical right Evangelicals, Nazis, fascists, right wing fiscal conservatives, and the Catholic Bishops in attacking a man elected to become the next president of the United States without them seeing what he will even think or do?
Two hours and forty-two minutes after that message by Al Qaeda was posted, 782 Yahoo! Buzz votes, and 287 Yahoo! Buzz comments later the American people have to have gotten the message that they will have to adjust their thinking radically to understand and address the circumstances.
The Associated Press pumping the story for all that it is worth releases after the first message, two hours and 15 minutes later another clip of comment from the “great” (sic) leadership of Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda praying on black emotions and sentiments substituted the words in the Arabic “slaves” for “Negroes” that could only mean they are poorly advised in translation or that they intentional mistranslated what Malcolm X actually said. Either way Al Qaeda spells no good.
In Al Qaeda’s smear and condemnation of president elect Barack Obama, General Colin Powell, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as "house Negroes.", they attack every hard working honest American of African decent.
In Al Qaeda’s use of the word “slave” they show their ignorance for not all American “negroes” are descended from slaves, but also of kings, and as their ancestors were not brought here in slavery nut arrived as Obama’s father did as an immigrant.
“In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the latest message was just "more despicable comments from a terrorist."
Al Qaeda ignorance today regarding American politics and American history is as self-evident, and abundant, as when they attacked the World Trade center in their stating:
“Obama's election has not changed American policies”
For even if Barack Obama does nothing else, even he never hold office, one thing is sure, America has been permanently changed.
Al Qaeda uses much of a rhetoric I have heard all too many times before in that is purely emotional in nature and added nothing constructive to the American World dialogue stating:
"America has put on a new face, but its heart full of hate, mind drowning in greed, and spirit which spreads evil, murder, repression and despotism continue to be the same as always”
A defeat and victory for America, is not the same as a victory and defeat for Al Qaeda so their statement regarding “Obama's victory” means nothing. In fact every defeat for America is not a victory for Al Qaeda.
Just as acknowledgments “that President George W. Bush's policies were a failure and that the result was an ‘admission of defeat in Iraq.’ means two different things for America and Al Qaeda.
In that Al Qaeda’s ," al-Zawahri’s confusion equating “support for Israel” as “a stance of hostility to Islam and Muslims is why the Palestinians have not resolved their problems (nor address them).
Unfortunately Al Qaeda would like to buried under the hills in Bora-Bora, as they don’t give a damn about themselves one can safely presume they don’t give a damn about anyone else.
As for my fellow dumb ass Americans 824 Votes
Buzzed! Comments (310) later in what is magnified at the instigation of the mainstream press (for who read independent bloggers such as myself). Via syndication services such Delicious Digg Facebook Propeller Reddit Stumbleupon we can hear the angst the pain, the suffering but now is the time to do something about it.
But still we hear the well organized rabble of all the aforementioned hate mongers, not that I think or don’t think Obama will live up to what is implied in his election promises, and those of his opponents.
I am waiting to see what happens for unlike the right-wing rabble that have responded online:
I don’t think Obama is an Arab!
I don’t think Obama is a Moslem! (yes Virginia there are non-Moslem Arabs, and maybe he will become a Moslem??),
I don’t think Obama is a socialist in my traditional sense of Karl Marx, Fabian Socialism, Anarcho Socialism, or any other kind of socialism. Not even social-democratic socialism!
I don’t ask that Obama’s birth certificate be produced because not only am I sure he is an American citizen, but I have faith that if he was George W. Bush, John McCain, and the Republican Party are not only able to address the issues from their own perspective but to appropriately act on it.
Not that I don’t worry for the fate state of this country and President Elect Obama as he all too similarly reminds me of another bright young mind in 1963 named Kennedy. That there was an unholy alliance in the street amongst the rabble unwittingly screaming for his blood based on innuendoes and rumors, gossip and hearsay, halfwits and fools, terrorists and child molesters, beggars and thieves.
Oh by the way Malcolm X had his critics, as did Martin Luther King, and Robert F. Kennedy, as will Barack Obama and probably I will be one of them, for I am one of those “mean nasty big bad terroristic socialists boo woo”.
Anyone know where Osama Ben Laden is so I could put a bullet in his head? Contributions anyone?
