The Massive Flameout Of The "Goldenae" Blog - Against Black Conservatives

"My Blog" by Goldenae

Back when this blogger Goldenae came out, guns blazing against the evil Black Conservative back in August 2009 I had a decision to make.  

Despite seeing the transparent propaganda of a (no doubt) young Black Progressive-Fundamentalist I had to choose to put down yet another "full scrotum" that was spouting rhetoric or I would just wait to get a better read on this guy.

After a few posts with a massive pile on by fellow Black Progressive-Fundamentalist cheering him on as the next columnist for "HuffingtonPost" the guy is gone.

Yes I have subscribed to one of his message threads and thus see responses.  There is no new content to speak of.

He has reached the boundaries of his political competence after a few short posts.

MSNBC Panned For Its "Panty Bomber" Coverage

MSNBC criticized for response to terrorism story

My personal opinion:  I would rather see the "Locked Up" series on MSNBC than to have Keith Olbermann provide live coverage of anything.

Huffington Post Exposed - Black Progressives Lament

Nigerian Terror Suspect - Black Progressive Blogger Mission: Deflect To The Right Wing Coverage

You all are making this far too easy.

I dedicate ONE of my blogs at "watching" my ideological adversaries.  These operatives MAIN PURPOSE of their one blog is to hold up their ideological adversaries and disassemble their theories.

When politics becomes a matter of becoming a "team member" and holding up your adversary for ridicule while failing to make note of the incumbent power that "your side" has over your key interests and how baldly they have delivered for you - you have LOST despite your wins on election night.

So is the case with the "Democrat Who Is Black".

He no longer is inclined to inspect the competency of the federal government now that it is in favorable hands. His job is to fend off his Conservative critics.

Jeruseluem Under Seige......... By The Israelis

The Birthplace of Jesus Is ‘Under Siege’ This Christmas

I saw that the article was from "Think Progress" and I should have known better.

Why doesn't anyone define a baseline for "religious tolerance" for the ENTIRE REGION and then make note of where Israel is on this index. 

As millions of Americans celebrate Christmas with their loved ones today, one group of people will commemorate the holiday in a state of virtual “siege.” Palestinian Christians in the West Bank city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ, are living under an occupation that is squeezing the city’s only hope for economic recovery — tourism.

The Israeli “security fence” — a sometimes 8-meter tall barrier that contains guard towers and barbed-wire fortifications that the World Court has ruled is illegal — cuts deep into the Palestinian city, and severely restricts travel and supplies. The United Nations estimates that between 50 to 70 percent of the agricultural land used by the citizens of Bethlehem has been confiscated by the building of Israel’s fence and settlement expansion. As a result of the occupation, fewer than 30 percent of visitors choose to spend the night there. ”When tourists see the wall, they think they are going into a war zone,” Adnan Suboh, a souvenir shop owner told the press. ”They are afraid.”

Meanwhile, Israeli officials have let few Christians from the Gaza Strip travel to Bethlehem to make pilgrimages for Christmas. While the Strip has nearly 3,500 Christians, the Israeli government has only offered travel permits to those below the age of 16 or above the age of 35, and “only 200 Christians from Gaza” have been allowed to make the trip

Citadel Broadcasting Files for Bankruptcy

And I was just debating someone regarding how I would not take a traditional broadcast radio station if someone gave it to me.

New media such as the Internet and wireless is going to put this baby to sleep over the long run.

Now The NAACP Has A Problem With "Rap" When Its A "Red Neck Rap"

NAACP to talk about 'redneck rap'

I don't even need to go and pull up any of the abundant lyrics of offensive words about Black people said by Black hip hop artists to show the ridiculous and selective antics of the NAACP.
PW’s African-American Cover Image: Black Beauty or Big Mistake?

Sensitivity over Black images that are put forth by White people in the media reign.

I wish that this same aggressive rebuke was seen in regards to what certain "protected Blacks" are allowed to do as they tarnish our image in more meaningful ways.

Why Doesn't Rachel Maddow And Other Activists Focus On These Prisoner Violations?

What about the United States makes it a more worthy target for condemnation by left-wing forces in the news and activist community?

Why are these captors seen as inferior?

Psst: - I Am Watching To See If Field Negro Runs With The Senator Chuck Schumer Story

Its a good thing the flight attendant was not Black then some loyalties would really be tested..

Spokesman: Sen. Chuck Schumer Regrets Insulting Flight Attendant

The "Depressed Negro Ensaring Others" Disease

The "Depressed Negro Ensaring Others" Disease 

This label might change over time but it adequately fits a phenomenon that I have noted amongst some Black folks.

THEY are depressed as individuals over the conditions in their own lives and the conditions that they see in certain communities.  From this they attempt to project their own discontentment upon all others in the Black race.  Any of us who dare say "NO NEGRO - YOU are depressed.  I am not.".

Recall a few years ago I made reference to my operating instructions:

"MY willingness to connect to YOUR discontentment does NOT depreciate my good standing as a BLACK MAN."

Some of the very same people who reside in this condition are also the most recalcitrant in their willingness to consider their own mindset and assumptions upon which they operate under.  Indeed THIS might be the problem. 

The reason for the community depression is an index of how many people in a given area share this same level of consciousness.

Instead of looking for an OPPRESSOR they need to develop a new consciousness.

Leftists Go After Senator Lieberman's Wife - Seek Removal From Breast Cancer Board

Notice that none of them address the dire fiscal concerns that Senator Lieberman has point out in the bill under consideration.

Memo to Celebs: Get Lieberman's Wife!

A day after Sen. Joe Lieberman said he won’t vote for the Democratic health reform bill as currently written, a progressive public policy blog is trying to oust his wife Hadassah as global ambassador for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer group.

And Firedoglake is hoping to enlist Hollywood stars that work with the group.

Among the stars it is contacting: Ellen DeGeneres, Christie Brinkley, Andie MacDowell, Christie Brinkley, Cynthia Nixon, Ellen DeGeneres, James Woods, Jennifer Tilly, Marcia Cross, Mimi Rogers and Neil Patrick Harris.

Firedoglake contends that Hadassah Lieberman’s ties to the pharmaceutical industry -- she once did public relations for a firm that handled Pharma clients and subsequent consulting for some drugmakers -- should disqualify her.

Of course it’s little secret that the real target is her husband.

“We are asking ... high-profile celebrities who are associated with Komen to demand that no more money raised for cancer treatment be given to Hadassah Lieberman or any other ex-Pharma/Insurance strategists,” said Firedoglake in a statement.

81% Of Dems Want Lieberman Punished For Health Care Filibuster

(Note: I am violating my ban on syndicating content from "The Huffington Post" only because this story is done as part of my monitoring of this propaganda site)

More than 80 percent of Democrats say they believe Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn) should be stripped of his powerful chairmanship in the Senate if he ends up supporting a Republican filibuster of health care reform, according to a new poll.

The liberal action groups Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America commissioned a survey several days ago, in which they asked more than 800 voters whether Lieberman's position on health care should affect his status as head of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Eighty-one percent of Democrats said they would like to see the senator's chairmanship -- which he was allowed to keep despite campaigning for Sen. John McCain in 2008 -- taken away should he sustain a filibuster. Only 10 percent of Democrats said there should be no punishment. Even fewer (nine percent) said they had yet to make up their minds, underscoring just how divisive Lieberman is within the party.

AJC's Cynthia Tucker Replaces Gibbs As The "Obama Press Secretary"

Prior to reading a Cynthia Tucker column I always prepare  myself on which crafty way she will find to blame:

  • The church for the HIV/AIDS problem due to homophobia
  • The Republicans in Georgia for any problems in the state as she looks past the "Local Democrats"
  • The conservatives at the national level - for all of the problems in the world
  • The Bush Administration for anything that was missed in the list above
As expected Ms Tucker holds true to form.  She justifies Obama's Nobel Peace prize as justified because he has burst the bubble of "American Exceptionalism".

I choose to take Ms Tucker to task.   Why is it that when there is a long list of human rights violations around the world (Watch Al Jezeera English to see it on full display) yet only the American military actions seem to trigger a backlash that has full traction?   If we are not "exceptional" why all of the "exceptions" in the dogged pursuit of justice against the violators around the world?

Why the financial demands upon the United States in regards to spending against Global Warming.  (Sorry - its now called "Climate Change")

I will believe that "American Exceptionalism" is dead when left wingers like Ms Tucker stop EXPECTING it.

Obama and the new world order

5:00 pm December 11, 2009, by ctucker

If John McCain had won last year’s presidential election, Americans would still have to adjust to a changing world order. Our elected leaders have spent the past several decades telling less developed nations to be more like us, and, by golly, some of them have gotten the message. So the United States no longer stands alone astride the globe.

McCain would likely have executed a different foreign policy — with less emphasis on diplomacy and more on go-it-alone militarism. But he could not have stopped the emergence of China and Brazil as rising powers. He could not have stamped out Islamic extremism through force alone. Nor could McCain have prevented the inexorable tide of globalization, which has decimated the U.S. manufacturing sector and created widespread economic dislocation.

No matter what the United States does, the world is changing, as is our place in it. Barack Obama understands that, and he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his recognition of a new world order as much as for anything else. His insistence on acknowledging his nation’s shortcomings, his landmark speech in an Islamic capitol, his refusal to perpetuate the myth of American exceptionalism — all reflect an understanding of a world in which U.S. power and influence have limits. Indeed, Obama — a black man with a Kenyan father — is a walking, talking symbol of a world no longer dominated by Eurocentric interests.

Needless to say, the prospect of an America that may have to share the world stage has created more than a little anxiety in some quarters. Dick Cheney isn’t the only person having trouble with a presidential bully pulpit that does less, well, bullying. Lots of average Americans have the sense that the America they knew — the one that dominated trade and commerce as well as military affairs — is under attack by some unseen conspiracy.

That helps explain the hysteria that erupted on the right in October, when the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize was announced: Because Obama does not practice a foreign policy of bluster and swagger, the prize was seen in those circles as rewarding an America of weakness and decline.

Obama’s challenge, then, was to give a Nobel acceptance speech that outlined America’s role in a changed world without ceding leadership on important issues, including U.S. security. He did that with a clear-eyed and robust reminder that the United States still occupies the central spot on the world stage, with a great capacity to do good in the world — even through force of arms.

“Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this: The United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms. The service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform has promoted peace and prosperity from Germany to Korea, and enabled democracy to take hold in places like the Balkans,” Obama said.

The president didn’t give up his prerogative to act unilaterally in defense of his country. And he didn’t shy away from the “hard truth” that nations will sometimes “find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified.”

But Obama did emphasize the obligation of the United States to lead by example — to prohibit torture, to abide by the Geneva Conventions, to close the offensive prison at Guantanamo Bay. Our values are more persuasive than our bullets and bombs, so we ought to keep them in good working order.

Still, the critics who believe Obama’s Nobel is premature have a point, as he acknowledged. He’s no Gandhi or Mandela or King. He has sent men and women to die in a distant war, even as he speaks of his quest for peace.

But Obama has reinstated time-honored American values of respect for the rule of law and for the fair conduct of war. That, at least, restores our moral claim to the leading role — even on a stage where the U.S. is not the only powerful actor.

AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa - Focus On "GOP Threats" But Not Local Democrats Who Run The Black Community

AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa - Focus On "GOP Threats" But Not Local Democrats Who Run The Black Community

"AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa" - who left the Democratic Party - NOT BECAUSE every voting district with 35%+ Black folks is controlled by them and he is not satisfied with the results - but because......the Democrats failed to adequately respond to the RACIST attacks on Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign is at it again.

Look folks - I do pattern matching and when you Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chasers make it too easy to detect it is no longer fun.

So out of all of the issues that we have in Black America:

  • Unacceptably High Black Unemployment Rates
  • The MSNBC "Locked UP" Series blowout in which all but one jail in the 6 segment series had a majority Black prison population
  • The Anger Of The Congressional Black Democratic Caucus at Obama 
what did "AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa Focus" on?


You see Black folks will not prosper in this nation until we get those damned Republicans (and Rush Limbaugh/ Sarah Palin) under control.

AverageBro - I'm A Racist
This is interesting.  Despite the fact that it is clear that the key tactic used by comedian Jenean Garafolo and various Black and White leftists to call the "Tea Party" protesters RACISTS - now there is some indignity shown by "AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa" that someone has made a comedy video over the practice.

Next we have Rush Limbaugh -

You see - all Rush Limbaugh needs to do to confound the comedic claims of "AverageBro - The Liberal Kappa" is to go to various public Black themed blog sites and see how much focus there is upon the "WHITE WOMEN" bedded by Tiger Woods.

It is clear that the bigger problem with Rush Limbaugh is that he is not fearful of being called a RACIST by the usual suspects and thus "going there" where so many others fear doing.

In any event notice the strong rebuttal to the claims that appear on the blog - there were none.

Talented Leftwing Political Cartoonists

I have to give credit to the AJC's political cartoonist Mike Luckovich.  Even though I know that he is going to skew things left prior to even opening his work - I have to give credit to a comedic talent when I see one.

This guy is pretty good.

The Trotter Group - Consortium Of Black Opinion Writers

The Trotter Group - Members

I have to keep my eye on this group.   Named after W. Monroe Trotter - famous antagonist of the great Booker T. Washington who fought in tag team unison with WEB DuBois.  It was telling that both DuBois and Trotter supported the campaign of Woodrow Wilson - a racist who said something to the effect of "any Negro who voted for me with the assumption that they'd see advancement of their cause will soon see how mistaken they were".  I've previously labeled Woodrow Wilson as a "Racist Progressive".  These two men only saw a "progressive" and were made happy.

My inclination to cast the Trotter Group as a bunch of Black Progressives (per the presence of Derrick Z Jackson, George Curry, Tonyaa Weathersbee and DeWayne Wickham) is tempered by the presence of Gregory Kane who is not in their same mind frame. Jackson and Curry in particular are good for writing pieces that are contemptible to my soul.

By Derrick Z. Jackson

ON NOVEMBER 12, 1914, William Monroe Trotter, editor of the Guardian newspaper, went to the White House to confront President Woodrow Wilson. Trotter had supported Wilson's election, but lynching was flaring up, and segregation was more rigid than ever. Trotter asked Wilson where he stood.

Wilson replied: "Segregation is not humiliating, but a benefit. ... Your manner offends me." A 45-minute argument ensued during which. Trotter said: "Two years ago, you were regarded as a second Abraham Lincoln. ... Now we colored leaders [who supported Wilson] are denounced in the colored churches as traitors to our race."

The argument made the front page of The New York Times. The mainstream press characterized Trotter as a poor representative of his race, possessing "superabundant untactful belligerency." Many African-Americans publicly criticized Trotter's judgment, too..

However, W.E.B. DuBois praised Trotter for his fearlessness and unselfish devotion to the higher interests of the Negro race. Oswald Garrison Villard, a grandson of William Lloyd Garrison, said that perhaps "one has to be rude to get into the press and do good with a just cause!"

Trotter was perhaps the most "rude" African-American journalist this nation has produced. The first African-American Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard, Trotter was uncompromising. He attacked both racists and the African-American accommodationists.

He and DuBois drafted the Declaration of Principles for the Niagara Movement of leading African-American opinion makers, saying: "Persistent manly agitation is the way to liberty. ... We black men have our own duties ... to respect ourselves, even as we respect others. But in doing so, we shall not cease to remind the white man of his responsibility.

We refuse to allow the impression to remain that the Negro-American assents to inferiority, is submissive under oppression and apologetic before insults."

Trotter's legacy of lone wolf protest, which included confronting the president of the United States, cannot be forgotten. Thus we, African-American columnists of this nation, call ourselves The Trotter Group.
