Quote From Audacity of Hope....

I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds change in an ugly direction”. BARACK OBAMA from The Audacity Of Hope which is titled in Indonesia “Assault Hope: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse”?. It is arguable that “Assault Hope” means “Jihad”.

But I guess this is of no consequence as long as we have a black president, right?

The actual quote from the book is from page 261 and is as follows: "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

Perhaps you should be more informed in your quest for "uppityness".

Blacks are about 13% of the population. Hispanics/Latinos are another 13%. Asians and "other" are another 6%. The 70% support from about 30% of the populationisn't enough to elect a President.
Many people voted for Obama based on race but it took many more (who voted because of party, policy or against Palin) to elect him President.

I'm not on a quest for uppityness earthlychic I have simply embraced a moniker which was thrown my way as an insult but I kind of liked it, but that's not the point.

The quote was not taken out of context, I find that reasoning troublesome as should you.

But Barack Obama is now the President
Elect and I pray that he will lead this country in the right direction and make the right decisions.

I don't have time to bicker anymore the votes have been cast. It's praying time!

The fear with Obama is that he was not properly vetted, he has lied, and took private funds from rich supporters who we all know he will owe favors, and lots of them. Black folks voted for him simply because he is black. John Lewis said it was great to see the decentant of slaves as president-when his father was native african, and his mother is white, so the odds are very slim that any of his family were ever slaves. Jessie Jackson, who only several months ago wanted to castrate him, cried when he won. I can understand totally the idea and importance of this event-but i do not know how this will impact the black folk two largest excuses, slavery and racism.

Here's something else Obama said:

Obama appeals to devotees in Virginia:
"I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here, but we're going to have to work. We're going to have to struggle. We're going to have to fight."

And here is an exerpt from the writings of Chairman Mao:

"The ill wind of opportunism is falling, the righteous wind of socialism is on the rise.
By the end of this year the victory of socialism will be greatly assured. Naturally there will be many struggles ahead and we must struggle hard"


But hey - we've already seen the first two textbook-steps toward installing Socialism - 1) incite class-warfare 2) eat-the-rich.

Hope-n-Change!
