Obama Goes Too Far On Gay Marriage, losing Black and Independent Voters!

May 16, 2012

Barak Obama has finally pushed Black Americans to make a choice about him, based on his record. His recent evolution in support of Gay Marriage, while telling Blacks to “stop whining” was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  My Democratic friends both Black and White openly acknowledge their disappointment in Mr. Obama’s performance as CIC thus far, and are not supporting him in November.  His arrogance and self-importance has become a topic of conversation among even my most liberal friends.

 

I received calls over the last few days from disgruntled Blacks that are verbally and factually more Charles Butler than me, in their disapproval of Mr. Obama.  I hear in Black churches across the land Black ministers that still support Mr. Obama are losing credibility with their congregations.  Interestingly enough I declared on election night of November of 2008, “Besides being a historical event, the election of Barak Obama would increase Americans interest and participation in the political process and governance of the country, and that will not bode well for Mr. Obama.”

 

Black Americans have overlooked President Obama’s neglect of any meaningful dialogue, legislation or action on their behave at any time in his political, professional or person life.  He has eluded anything remotely connected to Black Americans.  This includes the overt exclusion of a Black American from a formal cabinet post, (Eric Holder is clear that he is a Barbadian, not African American), which has not happened in decades.  Since election day I have compared Mr. Obama to Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter and in the last week the parallels could not have become clearer with the Putin/G8 debacle, refusing to address the Russia’s preemptive strike threat on the U.S and NATO, and Gay Marriage support.

 

Mr. Obama’s support of Gay Marriage is tantamount to and or exceeds President Carter’s gaff of “I asked Amy what was the most important issue … and she said nuclear weaponry” moment.  Mr. Obama claims that Sasha and Malia influenced his view on same-sex activity.  I think as an adult and loving parent their views should have been alarming to him, instead of revisionary.  He should have used it as a teaching moment to say: homosexuality is forbidden in the eyes of God through the written word, and he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and created the Great Flood to do a RESET.

 

I heard from friends that at their (Black) church services the pastors were declaring last Sunday that it was Obama’s white liberal mother’s side of him that influenced his to support of Gay Marriage.  I have shared more than a few laughs about that the last few days. Too funny!  Totally not P.C. but I am just repeating a reoccurring incident that’s out there among friends.

 

Remember, when polled most White Americans thought of him as half-white in their reason to vote for him.  Black Americans like Africans are not tolerant of homosexuality from a moral perspective as reflected in the Prop 8 vote in California last year.  It’s connected to a strong social conservative perspective and belief in the Bible.

 

However, the Black church has long been a haven for Black homosexuals in the choir and for their generous contributions to the collection plate.  The Black clergy has long had a dichotomy with the gay issue in its ranks and congregations.  Booker T. Washington often criticized the Black clergy for the proclivity to sexual indiscretions and promiscuity.   In the Black American community openly gay ministers were/are popular and well-financed.  I can remember people speaking of Prophet Jones and Sweet Daddy Grace in the 50’s and 60’s.  My family strongly disapproved of both men and thought they made a mockery of religion and the race with their feminine behavior.

 

The Obama’s have been given a pass by the Black clergy and Black media for their overt transgressions over the years against Black Americans and their interests.   The Obama’s have taken healthcare away from the poor at University of Chicago Hospital, cut funding to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the first year in office refused to do commencement speeches at HBCUs, ignored Black contracting projects, supported the racist employment system of big unions, and the list goes on.  The media appointed Black Leaders would have yelled racist and racism at the top of their Democratized voices, if a Republican President had blatantly ignored Black issues, and the urban agenda.

 

Obama has disrespected Black America with disregard “in your face” style similar to Woodrow Wilson.  His speech last year to the Congressional Black Caucus was one of the most racist, and embarrassing I have ever heard directed at Black Americans.  In the spiritual style of a Black preacher Mr. Obama told Black folks to “Stop complaining, stop whining, and take off your bedroom slippers…” In other words Aunt Jemima take off that head rag, house coat and house shoes and make some noise for me.  He has never spoken to any other group that way?  The members of the CBC were upset and angry and publicly criticized President Obama for his remarks.  The audacity of this weak, feminine, girlie man-acting dude was an affront of the highest nature. 

 

My observation is that the Black vote is irrelevant in 2012, as it was 2010.   Mr. Obama’s campaign and others are not concerned about whether they have Blacks vote for the ticket or not.  They are seeking the Latino vote.  Dave Plouffe seemed almost giddy in his book about the campaign and the fact that they didn’t need to spend any serious money to get the Black vote.  The irony of the strategy is that Barack agreed with the decision not to spend advertising dollars with Black media across the country.

 

We cannot allow politicians or Hollywood to define our morals and values.  Regardless, of the version of the Bible or the translation it is still the same, homosexual activity is unacceptable and unnatural behavior in God’s eyes.  Those of us that believe in the scriptures as written and interpreted over the years, have the right to practice our religious beliefs.

 

It is time to elect a President who believes that marriage is between a man and woman.  It is time to elect a President who teaches his children morals and values and not the other way around.  It is time to have for someone to represent the American people and the world.  It is time for America to embrace opportunity and justice for all.

 

The Obamas’ declare an interest in obesity in school children when they know that in 2009 in the Chicago Public School system almost 400 were wounded and 144 killed by gunfire in 2009.  How can children run and play in these warzone-like neighborhoods.  Barack Obama goes to war in Libya, but will not declare a stop to Black school children being killed in the streets of Chicago, a few blocks from his Kenwood home, (not to mention other urban centers) something is missing.

 

The majority of Black Americans are social and fiscal conservatives by the classic political definitions.  Mr. Obama is a classic liberal, converted Christian (from Islam), and an admitted non-African American by life experience.  If Blacks give him a pass on the Gay issue they deserve the continued exclusion from the national discourse that emanates from the White House.

 

After all, how can anyone take a group of people serious that continues to vote for a party label instead of their own self-interests and candidates records?  I am sure the great Black leaders of the past like Booker T. Washington, Frederick Douglass, Charles Houston, Thurgood Marshall are turning over in their graves from the embarrassment of Black Americans continued lack of intellect, and sophistication when it comes to exercising of their “right to vote”.

Think About It This Way with Charles Butler Podcast June 25, 2011

June 26, 2011

Podcast of June 25th TAITW

Greetings:

The show was interesting and to the point we started with Byran Reilly, Sr. Policy Analyst at Heritage Foundation discussing international trade and its effect on the economy and working Americans. His first question is whether he was “the education or entertainment?”. Of course he was the education participant for our listeners. Listen in and learn about the KORUS trade agreement from a different perspective than MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, et al.

Mr Mark Levin, guest on all the channels above including Fox News, we discussed the underfunding of pension plans and the malfeasance of state legislations across the country. Very engaging segment. Tune in and hear what is really going on at the state and federal level of entitlement programs.

Voter ID laws, I have been on radio stations around the country discussing how the Black elite are misinforming and miseducating Americans about the Voter identification laws to drive them back into Obama’s camp. The pollsters in Obama’s camp know Black people are not voting for him and express openly they are voting Democratic. It is ironic that it took a Black American president to expose the gross injustices by the party to this loyal constituency.

Flash Mob cover up by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPD Supt. McCarthy, the 911 tapes show that Black youth were terrorizing a predominately white North Beach area with their ignorant antics. Fighting, loud music, loud brash behavoir. The coup de grace was Falsh Mopping on Magnificent Mile, They can behave like animals in the Black community just don’t bring outside. The young folks will get the lesson.

Memorial Day and an Unpatroitic President

May 30, 2011

Think About It This Way With Charles Butler May 28, 2011

As we honor the meaning of Memorial Day I cannot help but think of the current undermining the will of the People by the first Black American President, Barak Obama, on illegal immigration, Libya, Afghanistan, Medicare, Stimulus, the economy to name a few.

President Obama and his administration have used many tactics to subvert the President’s constitutional responsibility to enforce the laws of our great nation.  This is a president that picks the laws he wants to enforce and ignores others.  He does it all with a smile and a wink, while he attacks the basic moral principles and values the majority of us hold dear.  Barak Obama has to go 2012, for the good of the country.

He launched his campaign in El Paso, TX two weeks and mocked the people of Arizona that passed a state law written on federal law to enforce illegal immigration.  He said “They won’t be happy until they get a moat with alligators along the border”.  He lied about the fence being built, he stopped the funding and the fence is less than one percent.  He lied about the safety of the border and the Sheriff Babeu, of Pinal County along the border says different.   This is a President that cannot be trusted to speak the truth at any time.  He is always in campaign mode and has not switched to governing the country.

President Obama plays the race and class card, hoping to divide Americans once again.  He has bamboozled the American people for the last time, because I think most of us are on to his little game.  Black Americans state openly that they will not vote for him next election.  So, President Obama appoints Rev. Al Sharpton the Ambassador for Black America.  It is an insult to all Americans and especially Black Americans to be humiliated by the sheer buffoonery of the appointment by President Obama.  An Ambassador works for the U.S. State Department and reports to the Secretary of State, in this case Ms. Hilary Clinton, Al does not!  An Ambassador represents the American people, not a racial or ethnic group!  Where are the Jewish, Polish, Sudanese, Jamaican, Chinese, Korean Ambassadors, do you start to get my point.   Al Sharpton doesn’t represent my interests or the interests of most Black Americans in this country.  His reputation is not held in high regard in spite of the media and the Black and White ruling class attempts to provide a leader for Black America.

We need to send a message to President Obama about his perceived lack of strength and respect by other world leaders on the global stage.  His lack of engagement about the consequences of the decisions he makes; like sending U.S. jet fighters into Libya and taking off for a party in Rio, killing Gadhafi’s grandchildren and not acknowledging the mistake to bomb a residence, taking credit for killing bin Laden while prosecuting the CIA agents that gave us the intelligence, letting Israel embarrass him in the Oval office, and then Russian president Medvedev do the same thing over the missile defense at the G-8 meeting.

All of these things seem like a lack of attention to detail.  We cannot afford this amateurism by the Obama administration any longer.  Someone should tell him that real lives are being lost and money spent that we don’t have on his foreign policy give-aways.

God bless you all and God bless America, we only have a year and few months to weather the storm.
