Black History Month in Mitchieville February 27, 2010

Posted by Michael in History, Politics.

Here is a little known, and fascinating, history lesson about the Republicans and their commitment to civil rights, the Democrats and their dependency on the KKK, and the hundreds of white Republicans who were lynched (1,300!) for their belief in the equal rights of blacks.

Thanks to The Mayor of Mitchieville (Geezer’s brother by another mother).  There is more at his site.

Isn’t it odd that the Democrats are now assumed to represent blacks, while they promote policies that continue to emasculate and impoverish black families and culture?

If you are black, do you really think that Walter Mondale liberals are your friends?  If so, you need a reality check.  Those liberals are your oppressors; they are the instruments of your servitude and marginalization.  They are why you don’t really matter.  They are why so many of your young men are in prison, on parole, or on probation.

It’s worse in the inner cities, like Baltimore.

Who are the Uncle Toms today?  In my opinion — Charles Rangel, Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and their ilk.  They are the ones who are collaborating with white Democrats to create a culture of dependency, inadequacy and despair in their own communities, especially among the men.  Just take a quick look at what the liberals have done to the schools in minority communities.  No wonder your young men end up in jail.

Black women are actually doing OK.  Under the liberal Democrat system, they are non-threatening,  they can move on up, and they are in fact doing so.  They are two-fers in any affirmative action program, because they count against both female and racial quotas.  Problem is, when they move up, they can’t find black males worth mating with.  So they are pretty much forced to go white, or not have children.   Meaning, we white males take the best of black women, and dilute their racially-specific genes.

Meanwhile, the most desperate of black women get paid to have babies out of wedlock  The outcomes of a policy that subsidizes fatherless children are a permanent black underclass of cheap labor, who are now challenged by illegal Hispanics, and a thriving prison industry which leads all nations in the rate of incarceration.

During Black History Month in Mitchieville, the fearless Mayor did not forget the source of President Obama’s inspiration, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Race relationships in America is an awkward topic, one we tend to avoid because it is burdened by guilt and denial.  My hat is off to the Mayor of Mitchieville for having the balls to propose an honest conversation.

David Barton taught me about Fisher Ames and his contribution to the Bill of Rights and the Northwest Ordinance.

2. Cathy - February 27, 2010

Great post, Honey.

… and the Dems keep trying to cover up the fact that
Martin Luther King Jr. was a registered Republican.

3. Cathy - February 27, 2010

Old, white, LUTHERAN pastors & church leaders (not so handsome dudes either) were the only ones who recognized the vision, passion and potential of a tenacious and courageous black female teacher, ROSA YOUNG to help her keep her school thriving after she had been turned away by her own church body and others she had approached for support.

Her endeavors laid a firm foundation that grew a teacher’s college and then a university in Selma Alabama. Concordia University, Selma.

What bothers me the most about modern black slavery (inner city welfare) is the energetic striving, outlandish rationalizations, and political footwork it takes to close out the rest of society in favor of insulated ignorance, a violent life, and perpetual third class status.

I’m not an expert, I just lived with a lot of folks in this one neighborhood in Hartford that were raised with diametrically opposite values and concepts of how the world works than I was.

The Man really does work hard to keep these people down. The secret of The Man’s success is mainly in framing The Solution (work, self-sufficiency, telling politicians to fuck off and MYOB) as The Man.

5. Michael - February 27, 2010

From an economic perspective, a perpetual underclass of readily available black labor actually makes some sense from the perspective of The Man. It keeps those pesky unions from getting uppity.

That’s also why a big underclass of illegal Hispanic immigrants gets a benign glance from The Man.

It’s all about labor force economics. Somebody has to pick the strawberries, repair the roofs, and change the bedpans, and we don’t want to pay too much for that.

6. lauraw - February 27, 2010

It keeps those pesky unions from getting uppity.

How’s that been working out, though, really?

7. Michael - February 27, 2010

>>>How’s that been working out, though, really?

Pretty good, actually. Outside of the public sector, the union movement is on its knees, a relic of the past representing less than 10% of U.S. labor, and dwindling. They have utterly failed to capture the interest of the growing sectors of America’s economy.

How many programmers do you know who are union labor? Many of them should be, but the downward drag of the black underclass. illegal Hispanics, and outsourcing to India and the Phillipines, all easily available sources of transient labor, keeps them in line. Plus, they want to be perceived as professionals, and not be stigmatized with the blue-collar image of unions.

8. Dave in Texas - February 27, 2010

If you subtract government employees, the national unionized workforce is holding around 3%. Steady decline since the 70s.

However if you add em back in…

9. Michael - February 27, 2010

However if you add em back in…

. . . the union movement is still declining.

The Information Economy is hostile to unions, because it fosters labor market mobility, and thus, freedom of choice. Thanks to the intertubes (meaning, the IP protocol), the search engines, the websites like monster.com, and the trillions of capital dollars invested in the fiber optic and wireless networks that make all this possible and cheap, buyers and sellers of labor can hook up in seconds globally.

Ask Geoff or Brewfan whether they would join a union for a 10% increase in pay, a dental care benefit, and greater job security.

Eh, you don't have to ask, because I know the answer.

public sector union membership flat from 03 to 09, around 8mm

While the population continued to grow.

Meaning, Obama has irrevocably hooked his wagon to a lame horse — his union fans at places like the SEIU, the NEA, and the ATLA.

He can’t help himself. Unlike Bill Clinton, he is not reactive or teachable. Obama is just plain stuck in the politics of the 80s.

12. GrumpyUnk - February 28, 2010

Michael, have you ever read about The Deacons for Defense and Justice?

An amazingly brave bunch of blacks who armed themselves and fought against the Klan in the 60’s.

I’ve got a good book on them I’d send to you if you’re interested.

13. Retired Geezer - February 28, 2010

That is an Amazing video.

Thanks for linking it.

14. Vmaximus - February 28, 2010

Democrats killing Republicans. I thought things were over the top now. how wrong I was. I bet the Dems wish they could go back to the good old days.

15. Tushar - February 28, 2010

When I had recently arrived in US, a co-worker told me that I am a democrat, because republicans are white racists. He pretty much tried to make the decision for me. My bullshit detector went through the roof. I read and did research and reached my own conclusion. Sadly, many newly arrived people drink the cool-aid right away.

16. lauraw - February 28, 2010

When I had recently arrived in US, a co-worker told me that I am a democrat, because republicans are white racists.

Oh my. That wasn’t ethnocentric at all, telling the brown guy to what party he belongs. Nope. Looks fine to me.

*eyes roll across floor

17. jwm - February 28, 2010

I am gobsmacked. I consider myself fairly well informed, but this video absolutely floored me.
I. had. no. idea.
Someone with the funding ought to get this broadcast on every major network, and on every prime- time broadcast. This needs media saturation. It needs to be shoved in the face of the Obamanoids, the Sharptonistas, and the Jacksonites.

Paging Micheal Steele: Your nuclear option is armed and ready. Launch that puppy!


18. Tushar - February 28, 2010


it is amazing the way the democrats think they own blacks, hispanics, brown folks, gays, women… pretty much anyone who is not a white Christian heterosexual man. One of the reasons they are so vicious to Palin is that they think they own the franchise on first woman President, first gay President etc. Now that Obama is in, they would allow a black Republican President. The prize has been won. This is one of the reasons they never talked about the historic nature of Condi becoming the first black woman SecState.

19. Michael - February 28, 2010

Condi was not black. That’s impossible. She worked for Bush.

*googles Condi picture*

Great tan.

20. Amiri Baraka, Poet Laureate of New Jersey - February 28, 2010

She’s black, just not black-black.

21. geoff - February 28, 2010

Amiri Baraka, Poet Laureate of New Jersey

New Jersey would have done better with that “Pants on the Ground” guy.

22. Vmaximus - February 28, 2010

My bosses ringtone is pants on the ground. I snicker every time he gets a call still.

23. Vmaximus - February 28, 2010

I am so unimaginative that my ringtone is the CTS Brring Brring. Yes I am old school. That is all. Carry on.

24. Lipstick - February 28, 2010

Mr L was in a meeting last week and a guys phone rang. It was a person’s voice saying “Ring…Ring… RING… RING!”. Cracked the whole room up.

25. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

She’s authentic man!

26. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

Jury duty today, bring out the guilty!

27. kevlarchick - March 1, 2010

Dave you should post a comment here at IB whilst being questioned by the lawyers. Judge will dig that.

28. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

They don’t like me taking pictures either.

Great, now he’s pissed.

29. Enas Yorl - March 1, 2010

You should “double-dog-dare” the judge to find you in contempt of court. They always get a kick out of that too.

30. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

Already did my Al Pacino With Justice For All bit.

I don’t think he likes Pacino.

31. kevlarchick - March 1, 2010

Lawyer to DiT: are you a citizen of the State of Texas?

Lawyer: do you possess a valid driver’s license?
DiT: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns

Lawyer: do you have an occupation that would prevent you from serving the county as a jury member?

32. skinbad - March 1, 2010

Dave dominates a jury room.

33. Tushar - March 1, 2010

Lawyer: do you have an occupation that would prevent you from serving the county as a jury member?
DiT: YES. **Shows the Judge his lock-picking kit**

34. Pupster - March 1, 2010



*clown horn sound effect*

35. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

I did that. Also did not sit well with chick judge

36. Pupster - March 1, 2010

How did you get the clown horn past the metal detectors?

37. Retired Geezer - March 1, 2010

Tell the judge you’ll bring in Michael as a consultant.

38. Michael - March 1, 2010

Tell the judge she looks hot in that robe.

Then wink at her every time she looks at the jury panel.

39. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

Me and the defense atty ain’t gettin along

40. Russ from Winterset - March 1, 2010

Dave, you should tell the judge that you’d make the best juror ever, because you can spot guilty people at first glance.

41. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

I said he looked guilty

42. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

Are you wearing clothes?

43. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

You’re not allowed to ask me that. I found out questions about clothes are off limits when I asked the judge what she had on under the robe.

Didn’t know that was a no no.

44. Cathy - March 1, 2010

Russ — Did someone we know participate in a certain famous bacon festival in Iowa this past weekend?

45. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

Didn’t know that was a no no.


46. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

Did you invite her back to your place for a dip inthe hot tub yet?

47. lauraw - March 1, 2010

Didn’t know that was a no no.

She must be a lesbian.

48. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

She is kinda hot

49. Tushar - March 1, 2010

I was watching some ‘SNL Best of Adam Sandler’.
His Operaman skits were hilarious.

50. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

I was not selected.

I am shocked.


51. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

Did you ask her is she was a lesbian?

52. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

Right before the county DA struck me off the jury, yeah. You think it was cause of that? I wore a tie today.

53. Russ from Winterset - March 1, 2010

Cathy – the tickets for the baconfest sold out in 25 minutes when they went on sale back at the end of January. I was figuring that since they moved to a larger facility with 3X the capacity, I would be safe ordering my tix that afternoon like I did last year.

I was mistaken.

54. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

I wore a tie today.



55. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

god you’re a bitch.

56. wiserbud - March 1, 2010

god you’re a bitch.

You love me.

57. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010

beside the point.

58. Pupster - March 1, 2010

I wore a tie today, too. I had a preliminary interview with another firm, who is considering my firm as a partner on a project.

Architect walked in in jeans and black sweatshirt, looking like he hadn’t showered in a few days. Electrical engineer walked in in jeans and thermal underwear shirt, 2 day beard. I probably won’t get the project BECAUSE OF THE TIE!

59. geoff - March 1, 2010

I probably won’t get the project BECAUSE OF THE TIE!

I’m sure they could see right through the sartorial splendor to the real Pupster beneath. After all, you’re…ahem…you.

60. Pupster - March 1, 2010

Yeah, but I only wear a tie when I’m trying to be somebody else.

61. Dave in Texas - March 1, 2010


Not a bad call.

62. Cathy - March 1, 2010

Sheesh. I thought TIE simply says, “I’m wearin’ dis ‘caus you’re special!”
