A Good Rant by Angry Black Lady about how Whiny Liberals got us into this Republican Mess

Liberals, It’s Time to Stop Bitching and Start Organizing. Just Shu...

 We’re four Senators and one President away from Thunderdome. Still wanna primary Obama?

I’m doing one of those rare things where I repost another blogger’s work in full because I can’t say it any better, and I fear my head would explode were I to try.

 

I do want to draw attention to one thing in particular, and that is all thePRAISE ED bullshit on MSNBC this week. How dare he pretend like he’s some fucking working class hero when he was leading the FUCK OBAMA movement during the midterms?

I wrote extensively about how the left was shooting itself in the foot, not only by refusing to vote, but also by refusing to participate in any GOTVactivities on behalf of Democrats because Democrats needed to be taught a lesson, that’s why!

Yeah, yeah, I’m an Obot. Do you know what being an Obot means? It means being fucking practical. It means not spending days on end looking for any way to attack Democrats and the Democratic leadership. It means not referring to Democrats as “house niggers.” It means not calling Obama a liar when he tries to get something done and is hamstrung by Congress (Gitmo). It means not expecting Obama to speak out for your little pet projects and stomping your foot when he doesn’t. It means stop looking to Obama to tell us what to doIt means stop trying to convince black people that Obama is fucking...(I’m looking at you, Arianna.) It means stop expecting that your progressive utopia is going to shoot out of Obama’s ass. It means stop fucking lying and start fucking working.

We have to do it for ourselves. We need to organize at the community level.1

Sitting behind a keyboard typing about how many penises Obama took from you simply pushes the Teabilly/GOP takeover onward.

Seriously. We need to take this fight to the streets and to Fox News’s front door. Fox News is killing this country. It is brainwashing people into thinking that they should be attacking one another. They are dividing the middle class and then pitting the two sides against each other and they are doing it on behalf of the Tea Party and the GOP.

So enough already.

If you want to be a nihilist and talk about how we’re fucked and there’s nothing we can do about it, then go get your smelling salts and your fainting couch and get the fuck out of the way.

If you want to talk about “Well they got the leadership they voted for; you reap what you sow” then get the fuck out of the way.

We are 4 Senators and 1 President away from total fucking apocalyptic ruin. Let those of us who still give a shit go about trying to fix this mess.

The rest of you? GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WAY.

We have a Governor here who talks to 20 people at a Golf Course and claims he talking to the "Tea Party" Thousands of teachers or unemployed march and they get very little coverage.

There's a place in the world for a raaaaaaaant...(to be sung to the tune of "There's a place in the world for a gambler:")

 

Words are powerful weapons, probably the MOST powerful of all, imo.  In the midst of being attacked both from the right, and from the far far far left, when other "rants"---wheterh written or spoken on tv and radio--------------- are being used to tip the national mindset------------, i LOVE it when somebody DOES stand up and say it!!  Sing it out LOUD, "Angry Black Lady"!! 

 

 

anyway, i am fired up right now anyway, about the base of the leftwing, FINALLY getting stoked up!!  THOUSANDS of LEFTWING people marched in INDIANA yesterday,

 

almost no nat'l coverage..........baffling. 

 

 Maybeeeeeeeeee we should said we were teabaggers........not sure.

i effin LOVED every word of this, and just about stood up and cheered!!!  Eggzactly how i felt during the 2010 elections, all the progressives sitting on their hands, "oh, but guantanamo is still open, so, i can't vote" they whined as the rightwingers zoomed down the tracks towards them...............facepalm.

 

EFFIN LOVED IT!!! WELL SAID!!  I *love it* on those rare moments, i read my own thoughts, that were written by someone i don't even know!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, young voters for some reason didn't vote in the last mid term elections. Cluelessness is a more likely reason than wanting to "punish" Obama and the democrats.

I like the rant. Sometimes you have to get it out of your system. =)
Comment by Doone has Fremdschämen on March 11, 2011 at 7:22am
I have linked before to the stats by Nate Silver on 538 about the big drop in the percentage of young voters in the 2010 election compared to the 2008 election - by young I mean people under 40 and the increase in voters over age 55 in the 2010 election to the 2008 election.  It was not a "wave" election for Republicans as much as a decrease of enthusiasm for Democrats which caused a lower voter turnout for Democrats.  Hopefully, in 2012 Democrats will be more interested in voting.
Comment by Adriana on March 11, 2011 at 7:18am

Rants never help, in my opinion. Neither is calling for unity in the Democratic party and then telling people to get the fuck out of the way.

 

But the blogger does have a point that many people did not go to vote in the mid-term elections and we are seeing the results now.

 

Fox News is doing a huge disservice to the country but they are able to do it because there are a lot of racist, xenophobic Americans with a religious mentality who have bought the drivel of free market capitalism and fear of government, hook, line and sinker. They are the fertile soil for Fox News hateful seeds.

Wow.  I must not understand politics very well.

 

I guess I will get out of the fucking way.
