Inauguration 2009

Posted by obama the antichrist on January 20, 2009

0109obamas

Ok as you may know, I am anti-Obama. I know this is a major day in USA and I am proud to be alive during it. Now with that being said i will move on to my post

I started watching as soon as the Former Presidents were introduced. I laughed so hard when President George H. W. Bush tapped the side of a saluting soldier (he is so old and i love old ppl 🙂 ) H. W. and President Clinton were so buddy-buddy it sorta shocked me. These are two men with opposing view points who seem to be best friends.

Unimportant things happened…Obama’s girls were beautiful and Blessed Wife Michelle was still dressed to capture the eye….

Then Diane Feinstein [(D)-Cali.] started off. She sounded proud and excited and honored to be introducing Barack Obama.

The celloist was amazing and Aretha Franklin did well

Obama came up to be sworn in.

Then his speech…Ok this is where i lost it and laughed

At one point he said something along the lines of how things need to be earned. Ok so what is spreading the wealth but giving money to people? Some of the people who voted for him do/will NOT work to earn that money. Ok my rant is sorta done…

I was informed later that Rev Lowery gave the closing benediction….and here is the last statement

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around — (laughter) — when yellow will be mellow — (laughter) — when the red man can get ahead, man — (laughter) — and when white will embrace what is right.

ok so…What the crap was Obama thinking? I mean, if you support a racist (ie allowing them to give YOUR inaguration’s closing benediction) doesnt that make you tolerate racism? I dont think anyone wants bigotry to conclude this historical moment. Plus, i am personally offended that he targeted the white people while Obama was sitting there already sworn in. If the whites were so bad (i think he means racist) how did Obama get into office? According to the Census Bureau, whites make up 66% of the US.  And yet, Obama still won…

Congrats to you Obama.

    it means that the lazy the ones who want everything and not want to work for it voted for him. Now, i know there are people who have disabilities and those who are old, so we need to help them. But my point is as i said before those that sit on their butt and watch TV and is a single mother/father with 5 kids out of wedlock who demand the govt give them money cuz they “deserve” it make up a part of Obama’s support. My intention was not to aim at those who cant get work it was to aim at those who refuse to get work

    it was a good strong speech, positive, inclusive, albeit a bit stern but that is called for at this time. great delivery, no notes whatsoever. he’s a no-nonsense leader. now his work really begins even though he’s positioned and segued soon after he was elected. the man doesn’t waste any time.

    That certainly did come across badly OTA. But the post is from the heart and I enjoyed the read.

    Racist without malice:Sometimes without meaning to a person can harber a “racist” attitude towards a certain race. Mainly just a preconceived idea towards a group of people they may not be familiar with. A lot of whites and blacks are racist without malice. This group of people can grow past these hidden feelings.

    On the other hand a closet racist is someone who has strong racist ideas and beliefs but doesn’t voice them unless they are around friends who share the same kind of tendencies. These are the worst kind of racist. They do more damage than an out and out racist!

    Out and out racist: this group of people are usually of lower intelligence and the main threat from them is violence. Fear of punishment usually keeps this group in check.

    This is just my own feelings on the racist issue.

    I have to speak up here… first… I don’t believe OTA said anything racist.. where? If this is the line: Some of the people who voted for him do/will NOT work to earn that money. There was NOTHING racist there… and this is true… there ARE people who will not make an effort because why should they when the democratic government will support them for nothing? There is a family living near me who fits this group of people… and btw.. they are white.

    And also… I agree with OTA’s oppinion of the line… “and when white will embrace what is right.” Implying that whites do NOT do so now… what?? Uh.. then how did he get elected?? oh those people must have been pink?

    That was flat out wrong… words like that continue to separate us instead of bring us together… It looks like Obama has already made his first mistake…

    Geez, here we go again, the person who said something about RACIST was…… the ANTICHRIST himself.

    and when white will embrace what is right.

    did you happen to hear the red and yellow parts, too? did you hear the people laughing? can we tell a joke? at the same time i would understand that it wouldn’t be funny if you weren’t in the “in” group, and therefore maybe it shouldn’t have been said in mixed company. But we don’t have to front because it wasn’t said to be racist. That’s what you’re not understanding. The statement was public.

    depends on what kind of interpretation an individual gives it, of course. maybe it’s the mixed company thing but if someone takes it as racist, that’s their choice taking a negative interpretation. it wasn’t meant to be racist…the joke had everybody in it. ota, i see why you get mistaken for being racist. hehe

    ok but why is the white not right (i like to rhyme too)

    black will not be asked to get back – refering to the bus and all the racism back then

    when brown can stick around – the illegal immigrants

    when yellow will be mellow – who are the yellow ppl? why are they not mellow?

    when the red man can get ahead, man – american indians ok this is sorta racist why are the Indians behind, they are rich in their traditions and i see nothing wrong with them as they are

    and when white will embrace what is right – everyone has faults but yet this rev feels the whites need to be reminded by their wrongness. If he said something like this about blacks, then they would be the ones more pissed off. I am not saying i would be happier if it was any other race cuz bigotry is pure evil in itself. And only Avenue Q can get away with making a “joke” like this and noone would be offended cuz its a musical and it is a fun play on taboo things seasme street style; also it is making fun of all races not just one.

    I know i am nit picking but i dont care!

    Ya know for a man all about “change” OTA is right, there isn’t much showing for it.

    I put down “martian” when I’m asked about my ethnicity and I can. (I’m Dutch, but I don’t get a line for “Dutch-American”.) But to single out races of people? Last time I checked, yellow was derogatory to the Asians. And if he’s going to single them out, where’s the Indians*? The Arabs? Huh?

    The Indians? What do you mean by “Indians?” in the context you used, I would assume Native Americans…and they were “singled out” as well.

    Probably not, it’s late and I have blood instead of coffee now. The only Asian I ever asked about it claimed it was offensive. And yes, he took office yesterday, but if the whole campain was on change, then let’s start “changing” the terminology to Americans, not based on your color, it IS 2009 isn’t it?

    Arabs are all kinds of colors as far as I can tell from dark to light and even brown, but the comment I took to be Hispanics as well. Arabs come here and sticking around doesn’t seem to be as much of a problem as the immigrants.

    And yes, Indians in that context was Native Americans.

    I am sorry OTA I did not mean to pick on you to hurt your feelings its just it was easy and I like to try to bring some humor, my sense of humor is different but still, and if you recall I picked on mostly everyone else as well. 😀 Also OTA where I live it is either goto school or goto labor pool and hope you get work for that day, or do criminal activites for money. Those are our only options since there is a surplus of workers and limited jobs. This is apparent in a lot of places. And why should a person move out of thier home to go live on the streets of a bigger city when they might not get a job there? It’s not a majority that are lazy and milk the system it is a minority. I am talking about people who have nothing wrong with them and still get disability. I know mental disabilities can affect you just as bad or worse than physical disabilities but not all mental disabilities are fakers and not all of the people in the welfare system refuse to work. But a minority makes the majority look bad. I mean you can only send your resume out so many times and if you are not willing to try to access the financial aid available so you can learn a skill or trade, or carrer then that person is worthless. But if that person does and does not work because he or she is a full time student and can support her/his family or her/his self by not working and only going to school, would you say they are lazy as well? You know as well as I do that a full time A student does not have a lot of time for work unless you don’t want that A and Academic Scholorships being an A student gives you. But there is my side, based on facts from the SSA. Which is the agency that controls Welfare.

    fyi: the “white will embrace whats right” was not born out of nothing. the Rev. was making a play on a famous saying from back in the day:

    if youre white, your right
    if youre brown, stick around
    if youre black, stay back

    i thought his play on this saying was clever and numerous, and most people didn’t seem to mind.

    that being said, i do think it is a tricky line to walk in recognizing the significance of obama’s election in the face of the nations overtly racist past, while recognizing the advances that have been made, often due to the efforts of well intentioned whites..
