Is Obama The Last Black American President?

Hat Tip to Faultline USA

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

Obama is, in fact, America’s first black President, but he may well be America’s LAST black President.



No, I don’t mean the practice of racism, I mean, instead, the CLAIM of racism.

We’ve had 5 years of abject failure by the Obama Administration and a refusal by the democrats to take responsibility for the crashing and burning of their progressive agenda. They continually blame racism for Obama’s failure.

If one even disagrees with Obama’s direction, he/she is promptly called a racist.

Well, we are sick of it. We have had it up the the gunwales and then some. So, we’re not going there again, for a very long time, if ever.

Look. We gave it a chance. In fact, America bent over backwards to accommodate a black president. Many of us think, myself included, we bent way too far.

Obama’s Administration was to have been a “feel good” presidency for the political left. They could point to a black man in the White House with vest busting pride and stroke each other over their open-mindedness and their diversity and all the leftist hogwash they regularly spew through the left wing propagandists in the mainstream media.

On inauguration day, 2009, they immediately circled the wagons around Obama with the intention of defending him … no matter what.

Well, it has now been five very long years of “no matter what.” Yes, they are STILL defending him, but they have grown weary, and their jobs are now endangered as a result of their unquestioning loyalty to an obvious Marxist president. The jobs of the press corp are not so much endangered as are the jobs of the democratic legislators in the Congress.

The press can bleed readers and subscribers for a fairly long time before having to cut their losses. Politicians can’t bleed voters in like manner. In the past couple of weeks the democrats have been hemorrhaging voters. Thus their throat constricting fear.

As Election 2014 hoists itself over the horizon, panic has seized the hearts of many, if not most, of the democrats in the US Senate and the House. With good reason.

Americans are fed up.

It takes a lot to stoke the spark of rebelliousness in Americans. We put up with Great Britain a long while before rising up and throwing off the king’s yoke. Once the American passion for freedom has been fanned into a flame it soon grows into a firestorm.

The democrats are staring down the barrel of a fiery maelstrom straight out of Hell itself … and they know it!

Those on the right — AND the left — no longer feel constrained and are speaking boldly against America’s first black President’s lies and broken promises, promises not made in good faith to the American people.

In the past few days as I watched and listened to the democrats railing against their very own Obamacare law, William Shakespeare’s words as spoken by Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude, rolled through my consciousness: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” (Hamlet, act III, scene II) The democrats words sound hollow and insincere as did the words of the Player Queen to whom Hamlet’s mother was referring.

One must wonder how all this sniping and back-biting — and a few flat-out frontal attacks by those who have spent the greater part of the past five years defending him must feel to our deeply narcissistic leader. Obama’s skin may be black, but it is seriously and legendarily thin.

Obama and his supporters would do well to remember that no matter what they may call it, this is NOT racism. It is POLITICS and it is a bruising, bitter, blood sport when played in the American political arena.

Black politicians, especially those interested in running for the highest office in the land, should learn that as long as they have coattails their fellow politicians (of the same political persuasion) will happily ride them to acclaim and even victory. BUT — stumble so that it reflects badly upon them and they will happily hang you with those very same coattails and leave you swinging to and fro in the wind. Mr. Obama has to be feeling the falling away of the many layers of protective insulation he has enjoyed for five years now. It cannot be a pleasurable feeling.

So, our advice to any black politician considering running for President of the United States: insist that your followers, your supporters, your entourage, never allow the word racism to pass their lips. Americans having endured eight years of that lame excuse will not even allow the shadow of that politician to fall upon them.

As I said above — we’ve had it with being slammed by accusations of racism when it is noting more than good ole American politics.

  • couldn’t agree more. Most people won’t call me racist because my skin is brown (and isn’t that stupid?) but it wouldn’t matter. I’ll call a spade a spade any day of the week, and if their only response is “racist,” then they just demonstrate a lack of imagination. Like parrots, or kids who used to say “your mother wears combat boots”. Meant to intimidate and silence, or sometimes just to be mean.

  • And we still have three more years to go with this race card nonsense. Let us hope it gets bad enough to impeach the rascal.

    The problem is that prior to 1960 there was indeed racism towards the blacks. Thanks to a lot of effort by all groups (blacks, whites and others) there was a turnaround most notably in the South. But many blacks discovered that there was an advantage to being the victim and money and power to be had by playing the race card. In short racism was too profitable to let it die. So many who play the race card for fun and profit continued to do so. But as real racism against blacks continued to die the fun and profit grew less and less. Something had to be done. Hence the hate studies at colleges and fraudulent and contrived racial incidents to generate anger in the base. But the base became more then angry with the 24/7 hate filled rhetoric they become racist hating the whites. Now we have a complete reversal with most whites genuinely having no racism and most blacks being racist. Oprah could think of no other reason for someone to shout out that Obama lied except that he was black. She was apparently unaware of the name calling and disrespect that Bush went through and concluded that anyone disagreeing with Obama must be racist. Today it is so ingrained in blacks that there “was” racism so there must still be racism and therefore it is OK and even right to hate all whites because they are white.

      and the democrats were responsible for the racist actions until the Republicans stopped them

  • It’s a shame that our first black President was one with dispicable character.

  • What a great article Findalis! And you are so right on! It has never been about the color of Barack’s skin, it’s always been about his POLICIES. Barack Obama doesn’t hate America because he’s black (well…half) but because of his past associations and who he aligned himself with. Communists, Socialists, “ists” of every sort … they embedded him with a hatred for America that has been evident ever since he’s lied his way into office. Liberals, desperate to defend their “god” always use the race card when there’s nothing else. They know the media and just about everyone else is scared to death to be called ‘racist’. But you’re right, we are tired of it and it has gotten tired and old. Because that’s not what we are about. Lead the nation, no matter what the color of your skin is and you have respect of all.

    The real racists are those who voted for BHO because he is supposedly black (actually he is bi-racial, so the laugh is on them).

    For anyone who cast a vote for him in part because of his skin color, they should acknowledge they are racists, not me. That action is the very definition of racism.

    I did not vote for him twice because he is an unqualified, unpatriotic, deceitful, windbag marxist.
