Birther Nonsense a Window into White Souls

Categories: Get Off My Lawn

SHZ_GetOffMyLawn_TitleImageV2.jpg
Last week The Associated Press did a story about the disgust and dismay of black Americans confronting the birther issue. "I find it hard to summarize in mere words the amount of pain and rage this incident has caused," one man was quoted as saying at the top of the story.

The story quoted black Americans who described the whole birth certificate scenario as a manifestation of "the idea that when a black person accomplishes something there must be something wrong."

But I can't help thinking the whole thing will be good for white people in the end. It's like a national mirror in our faces. What we see is not good.

We look at those Teabaggers in the three-cornered hats craning around like they're looking for flying saucers, telling us they don't know how the president got here, and I hope most white people have the OMG! reaction.

Is that really how we look?

One of the big discoveries many of us made when Obama became the Democratic candidate was that way more white people than we ever would have guessed have been living in all-white enclave-America all this time.

White people stopped talking about race 20 years ago. Who knows why? You couldn't count on the response any more? You could screw up your job?

But when Barack Obama became the candidate, race was back on the table, and ... OMG! The stuff that came out of people's mouths! I remember thinking when it started that this might be one case where it would be better for people to go back in the closet. And just stay there.

The most salient thing was that tons of white people in this country have never been around social equals or social superiors who are of color.

Obama-birth-certificate.jpg
That settles that...as if.
Americans are weird about class. We say we don't have classes. Then we worry 24/7 about which one we're in. But all human beings have excellent GPS for rank, whether you call it class or not. We are ant-hill sensitive to who's in what position. That GPS is pretty damned accurate, and we can't turn it off.

In the 21st century American meritocracy, the Obamas are unmistakeably ruling class -- all of them, the President, the First Lady, even the kids. They walk the walk and talk the talk.

So here's what happens. The whitey-whites from Whiteland have never been around a ruling-class black family before. They can't turn away from this one, because we're a media-saturated culture, and the first family is everywhere.

So the social-class GPS comes in loud and clear: "Ruling class, higher than you."
But the racist radar comes in loud and clear too: "Black."

And the two messages collide. In the racist mind, both things cannot be simultaneously true. I think the shrinks call that cognitive dissonance.

That's where all of this comes from -- the three-cornered hats, the staring around for flying saucers, birtherism and that moron Donald Trump. It's racist white people trying to solve their cognitive dissonance problem by denying the Obama family's fundamental reality.

I guess it's not anything new. It's why racist white people won't meet black people's eyes when they pass on the street. They're trying to make them all invisible men. But it's so extremely stark when you see it on television, and they're talking about the president of the United States, asserting that the president is not the human being he seems to be, that he's some kind of Manchurian candidate fake.

That's at least three things. It's deeply disloyal to the country. It's really, really wacko. And it's monumentally stupid.

I believe in my heart of hearts -- call it an article of faith -- that most white people stare at that stuff on television and see it for what it is: all three of those things. I hate the pain that it inflicts on the hearts of African-Americans, the hearts of all Americans who see the ugliness in it. But I still say it's a cleansing pain.

It was high time we white folks got a good long look at ourselves in the mirror. It's going to be good for us in the long run.

 If the birther issue is a window into white souls, the fascist intervention on business, the hatred for whites, the usurping of our Constitution, the senseless embrace of environmental extremism, and obamas' megalomania is like a telescope revealing his ineptness , dereliction, racism, and his contempt for everything loyal, legal Americans hold as sacred! obama is similar to the movie "The Mouse That Roared", he was questionably qualified for a Chicago dogcatcher job and "shizamm", he woke up POTUS!  You have to admit he's batting a perfect thousand, he's screwed up EVERY segment of Amnerican life!

WANT PROOF THAT THE DEATH OF OSAMA BIN LADEN IS ACONSPIRACY?

 

Scam artists have cornered the market on affiliate marketingeducation. Their sites use aliases, bogus whois info, and registrations indifferent states and countries. What are they hiding?

 

After many years researching, a link appeared on ArmandMorin’s blog to Al-Qaeda. A number of these con artist's faces matched up withthe FBI’s MOST WANTED TERRORISTS.

 

Here are wanted terrorists, some for U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya & Indonesia. Do these two places ringany bells?

 

Search Google Images for;

Many get rich quick scams serve as product placement for newcutting edge internet technologies, and logos, some sold through Clickbank. Thepeople appearing in testimonials are part of the expansion of this organizationand are often pitching other high priced products and services. They all linkto one another through their marketing strategies and ability to optimize insearch rankings.

 

Between the aliases the use, and the way in which they speakabout things, everything they do has double meaning. Here is a code of look alikes pitching all sorts of stuff who are interconnected.

 

Selling a program on making millions online is ProfessorJames Bradley who looks like the Pentagon bomber Bill Ayers.

 

Jay Conrad Levinson is behind a number of “guerilla”marketing and advertising books. He looks like George Soros, who’s last name isa (palin)drome. Soros has been credited for collapsing a number of nation’scurrencies.

 

The Super Affiliate Handbook is sold by someone who lookslike Jill Biden, her name is Rosalind Gardner. Some appear to represent people,more in how they pose, rather then a direct look a like. Stephen Pierce appearsto represent radical Van Jones, Brett McFall-Austan Goolsbee, JohnChilders-Andy Stern, and Jay Abraham as Ayman al-Zawahri.

 

Problem with your Google Adwords PPC ads and can’t get astraight answer? You could try Yanik Silver who looks a lot like Sergei Brin,but he probably won’t know. He sells 33 Days to Online Profits (prophets.) Whynot try Perry Marshall, who looks like Obama’s priest Reverend Pfleger? Hesells The Definitive Guide To Google Adwords, infringing upon Google’strademark.

 

Many more can be seen at Lorrie Morgan Ferrero’sRed-Hot-Copy.com blog such as; 72 Virgin Records Richard Branson, & White HouseParty Crashers the Salahi’s with Valerie Jarrett’s daughter.

 

The Rich Jerk sent out emails promoting Stompernet in Atlanta Georgia.The staff included Brad Fallon, an airline pilot, and Eben Pagan selling aseminar "Get Altitude". 3 days after reporting this code to the FBI,Delta in Atlantacanceled a large number of flights due to safety reasons. In the Youtube videosrelated to the Rich Jerk, it appears that Mark Cuban is the Rich Jerk. He’s thebillionaire who owns the Dallas Maverick’s basketball team. Think O'bomber orBarrac-uda Palin would play for him? Another guy claiming to be Robert JohnsonRich Jerk is Tony Rezko.

 

Obama announced his run for office on Oprah Winfrey’s show.Have you ever noticed that Oprah’s shopping friend Gayle King looks a lot likeWhitney Houston? Did you ever think that her name could be a code, Whit_neyWhite-Hous_ton House?

 

In my strongest opinion this is the last piece of thepuzzle, Osama Bin Laden is also a spokesperson, and a look-a-like. Osamarepresents Obama/Biden (Bi)n La(den.)

 

NOT CONVINCED THAT THE DEATH OF OSAMA BIN LADEN IS ACONSPIRACY? THEN WHY HAS THIS BEEN DELETED REPEATEDLY FROM MAJOR NEWS SITES?

"Whitey Whites from White Town"..."Teabaggers"...I find the title and tone of this entire article offensive. I did not vote for this President, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with the fundamental difference between a conservative and liberal philosophy. Nothing more, nothing less. My conservative philosophy of government does NOT make me a racist. Disagreeing with this President does NOT make me a racist. But it will get me accused of being one every time. I will vote for and support any man, woman, black, white, red, yellow or anything in between, if they are fiscally conservative.Type your comment here.

I am a white person and i am so unbelievably disgusted by what i see the Republican / tea-bagger parties saying about our president. It is disgusting and I am ashamed. I used to consider myself republican but i cannot support these racist, lying corrupt fear mongers any more. Some significant changes would have to happen before i would consider going back (first and foremost get out of bed with the religious right... go away you self-righteous, arrogant, intolerant, hate mongering, noisy MINORITY!)

It is so obvious that he is trying as hard as humanly possible to make concessions where possible and compromise but they slap him in the face every time. If he gives them an inch he gave them the wrong inch, If he gives them that other inch they turn it around and say he is shoving it down their throats... it is pathetic, sad and petty.

I know you wont read this Mr. President but please know there are some (i hope many) white people who appreciate everything you are doing. Just by being there and being better than these idiots you are changing peoples perceptions. The level of self control you exhibit when dealing with these people and the complete utter nonsense they spew is remarkable...I don't know how you do it honestly.

While i may disagree on a few things, i know that the environment you are working in is practically unnavigable with all the petty politics, backdoor deals, lying and corruption. I firmly believe that you are trying to do what is the best for the American people, even if that is contrary to what your political party, or the other politicians in Washington are doing.

Please keep fighting... you are doing a lot of good.

Here's more proof that the Osama Bin Laden killed story is aconspiracy;

Sarah Palin never existed until months after I contacted theFBI. Her family & history is fabricated using logarithms. She became amedia magnet to flush out Barack (O’Bomber) Obama’s socialist “organizedcommunity.” Maverick Sarah (Barrac)uda) Palin, is short for palindrome, such asSOROS. Maverick McCain’s likes ABBA, another palindrome. First forum to hack meonline was FIB Scams 101 with the owner called Mama. Palin coined the term“mama” grizzly. Under investigation for insider trading of a search companycalled Mamma, was Interstate 77 American Airlines Stadium NBA Maverick MarkCuban. On 9/11 flight 77 American Airlines hit the Pentagon. Palin’s daughter “Willow,” is short for Willow Run Airport off I-94, her birthday 7/7/94.“Piper,” also a plane, shares a birthday with Bruce Willis (John McC(l)ane theguy who fights the terrorists in Die Hard.) Sarah’s “siblings” are HeatherHeath Bruce & Molly Heath McCa(n)n. “Trig” shares a birthday with 3congressmen from WI, IL, and MI. “Track” shares a birthday with Adolf Hitler.Obama shares a birthday with Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat. “Tripp”Palin has multiple birthdays, like Yasser.

In my strongestopinion, Osama Bin Laden is a conspiracy, a spokesperson, and a look-a-like.Osama represents Obama/Biden (Bi)n La(den.)

I think it's important to note that according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, about one in three so-called "birthers" - those who erroneously believed President Obama was born outside of the United States - nonetheless approved of the president's job performance and held a favorable opinion of him.

That doesn't sound very "racist" to me.

I couldn't finish this article. You incorrectly label all whites as birthers and teabaggers. I am white and I am appalled by those groups. You lump me in with ignorant inbred hicks. That's who birthers and teabaggers are; uneducated, bungled and botched simpletons. I don't know a single person who questioned Obama's legitimacy as candidate. So you're not just a little wrong you're very wrong. I'm not the exception to the rule, Birthers are the exception to the rule. They are the minority of whites. Just like the Islam group that stands in times square and calls me the devil and spawn of all evil is the shitty part of your race, Birthers are the shitty part of mine.

How about a little more journalism and a little less spreading the hate?

Shouting "racist" as many times as Mr. Schutze has done here only demonstrates his inability to make a coherent rational argument not prone to hysteria.

A newspaper columnist writing "the blacky blacks from blackland" in today's America would most likely be looking for a new line of work. But we live in an upside down world where the line is only drawn at offending minorities.

Many people don't meet the eyes of others on the street for fear of offending: "What are you looking at it?" We don't live in a land of rainbows and unicorns, but a coarse often uncivil and violent society. I also suspect that Mr. "Get off my lawn" is nothing like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino (only a masquerade artist ;)

"The Obama family's fundamental reality" was put into question BY THEM and ONLY BY THEM. His grandmother started the ball rolling by saying that he was FROM KENYA. Later his wife said the same thing on two different occasions. If this issue is an unfair distraction then they have only themselves to blame.

I wouldn't really be surprised if Obama is creating another distraction RIGHT NOW by holding back on the OBL pictures to create more distrust... and will then pull them out of a hat in time for the 2012 elections, saying, "You didn't believe me did you, well here is the proof."

This isn't leadership, it is a worse cynicism than that practiced by the public.

You made some good points... but saying that white stopped talking about race 20 years ago and that the entire birther thing is about race is a contradiction. Black people are too sensitive about racism, its just ignorance and needs to be dismissed as that.

Wow, what a horrible piece of anti-white propaganda.

Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

This Birth topic is tragic really, specially from a white person's point of view who feels the pain of being associated in any way with those wacoes just because of our similar skin color. And yes only racist people can be clinging to this pathetic topic to cover up their dismay at having been proven wrong: everyone can achieve the best no matter what your race is.

However I do think the real problem here is how mass media encourage and support them because they are 'fun' to cover. The media are showing how irresponsible they can be by not upholding a code of ethics (do they even know what that is anymore??). We need to send birthists back into their white trash inbreeding shack but we also need to have all media in this country look in the mirror and see what they have really become: circus ringmasters.

Great op-ed, Jim! This entire birther situation really has me pissed off still, even after the President's heroic decision-making that led to the death of Osama Bin Laden. Anglos who think like those you reference in op-ed only reinforces for me what my parents instilled in my siblings and I that we have to do things 3 times better than a white person to even be considered 'worthy' enough to place an application asserting that we wanted to be considered equal. That's a hell of a load to carry yet we carry it and have passed that on to our kids. Hopefully we'll get to the point (as you have suggested) where that's a family legacy that we can lay to rest...

Ever since I first heard Obama speak, I was impressed. He has not failed me since then, either. It is so nice to have a President again who speaks clearly, literately, and with forethought.

The birthers show just how much of a complete idiot they are. McCain wasn't born in the US, and they didn't question him?!

I have been totally amazed at the incredibly stupid things that I've heard supposedly intelligent white people say about Bush and President Obama.

Good news folks.

The birthers and social conservatives are making so much noise right now because they are drowning in their own "stuff". The mindset that supports racism as we know it is also the mindset that created most of the problems we are dealing with world wide. Their little world perspective is going away because it didn't work.

I have been blessed with interacting with college and high school kids lately. They are going to be in control much sooner than most of us believe possible. The good news about that is they have the wisdom to see the errors of our ways. And they are not going to make the same mistakes we have.

I keep going onto Fox News forums just to see what they're saying about Obama. I'd say 95% of the posts are just foul racism and paranoid rants. Someone needs to do an article on those things. I'd love to get a journalist that would choose one of the posters and hunt them down and ask them why they said what they said online and see if they say the same in real life.

Liberals controlled Congress completely for four years, from 2006 to 2010 with Pelosi and Reid. Democrats controlled the legislature and the executive with Obama from 2008 to 2010. That's two years to lay the ground work and two years to enact any damned law they wanted.

I realize that for some it's difficult to talk to the youth today, much less listen to them, but their world is much smarter than ours. They've seen first hand how small and destructive a small world mindset can be. They don't want any part of it.

One of the great things about the youth is they are searching for ways to make a difference because they've seen what happens to people who are only concerned about making a buck. They don't want to be their parents. They don't want to live like that.

They understand what their parents can't comprehend. Our lifestyle can't be sustained much longer. The kids get it.
