Black women have the power to elect the next POTUS, just like we did for the current one.
— Anna (@AuntLulie) February 24, 2016
The statistics do not lie. We’ve always know that our vote counted, but never have they meant more than they do now. The Democratic candidates are vying for our votes, the Black vote. and above all the BLACK WOMAN’S VOTE.
And thus our open letter to you Black Men and Women
First, some BACKGROUND on Ms. Harriet Tubman.
Harriet Tubman escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist. She led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom along the route of the Underground Railroad.
Harriet Tubman – Mini Biography (TV-14; 2:47) Watch a mini biography of legendary Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman, who routinely put herself in danger to guide thousands of slaves to freedom.
Harriet Tubman was an American bondwoman who escaped from slavery in the South to become a leading abolitionist before the American Civil War. She was born in Maryland in 1820, and successfully escaped in 1849. Yet she returned many times to rescue both family members and non-relatives from the plantation system. She led hundreds to freedom in the North as the most famous “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, an elaborate secret network of safe houses organized for that purpose.
Now to have Hillary Clinton roaming the countryside, declaring she is Black America’s Lord and savior, our 21st century Harriet Tubman? I.DON’T.THINK.SO
OPEN LETTER TO BLACK VOTERS:
Dear Black Men and Women,
We do not need to be SAVED by anyone, and especially Hillary Clinton.
Please do not fall for the “I can bring peace and justice to the Black community.”
Please do not fall for the “White people need to look at their racism.”
Please do not fall for Hillary’s fake compassion for your poisoned children, your murdered and dead children.
The Clintons have never done anything for black people except exploit, impoverish, imprison and execute them – a.k.a bring them to heel – and in the process, irreparably damaged and destroyed a generation of black men, women, children and families.
Black women…black people, wake-up. You are being hoodwinked. Again.
Any truths raised about Hillary is swiftly shouted down and defensively counteracted with shrills of ‘witch-hunt’ and ‘Salem revisited’…’a mob mentality’ determined to take her down because you know, Hillary is inexplicably deemed ‘feminist hero’ and hence perceived attacks can only be ‘sexism and misogyny’ ..
Never mind that in 8 long years, neither the so-called feminists – always on the ready to run interference on Hillary’s behalf by shutting down not only the slightest hint of criticism, but even legitimate perspectives that are even remotely contrarian – and any commentary that doesn’t conform with the preferred narrative of Hillary as ‘sacred’ and the greatest – and completely ‘off-limits’…These are usually met with instant screams of ‘misogyny and sexism’ – whereas the same chorus of offended women and men, simply shrug, and never seem to find anything sexist or misogynistic, racist or even offensive, about the blatantly vicious, malicious and non-stop dehumanization of the first black First Lady –
Not once in 8 years has Hillary – that ‘close and dear friend’ of President Obama’s – not once has she or her often hostile and complicit ‘PUMA warriors’ ever spoken out against the vicious attacks on her only Democratic FLOTUS successor – or offered words of support for or solidarity with Mrs Obama – even as Laura Bush often has…It’s actually obvious that Hillary and the first black First Lady – except for a few obligatory appearances at one or two events years ago – have no relationship whatsoever…And if in the end, Mrs Obama formally gets on the Hillary coronation bandwagon – and no matter how much the usually sincere and completely genuine Mrs Obama fakes it, it will most certainly only be at her beloved husband’s behest and prodding – and only for his sake…Neither Hillary or her ‘sisterhood’ of predominantly white ‘feminists’ – and the few black ones desperate for validation – or the entire Democratic hierarchy for that matter – deserve Mrs Obama’s loyalty or support…They’ve had so many opportunities, but have never been there for Mrs Obama – not even while she’s been so viciously maligned for no reason at all – and in ways that would have brought a lesser woman to her knees – and prompted an immediate blanketing of the airwaves were it Hillary being attacked…Turns out vicious and very personal attacks on the black First Lady, as with those on most other black women…are not considered or covered as ‘sexist’, ‘misogynistic’ or even seen as offensive…Because as usual, black women aren’t seen as worthy of chivalry or protection…or deserving of that rallying around and that respect automatically and liberally bestowed on all others.
There’s Sandra Bland, her mother and Sandra’s story — All of it completely ignored, and even dismissed and never covered by, or rallied behind by ‘feminists’ – until of course it proved convenient – a useful and singular narrative to advance Hillary’s political ambition and aspirations to the White House….And then – and only then, did Sandra’s mother become a useful prop…and Sandra’s story, along with other tragedies, appropriated for Hillary’s exploitation and specific political purposes.
And now after blatantly rigging the Democratic party process and torpedoing the positive, transparent, uplifting and ethically focused democratic process and party President Obama sought to institute and promote.. we’ve now returned to the pre-Obama days when the party and process was corrupt and broken – and the Democratic party ‘leadership’ having now returned us to their corrupt ways of old – and elbowed out and knee-capped every potential Democratic competition and pettily shut down any opposing voices within the party – with all hands on deck, has preemptively cleared the field in preparation for a Hillary coronation. And with the enthusiastic assist of the entire Democratic establishment we are commanded to fall in line – or else…We are alternately threatened and cajoled with endless references to President Obama’s legacy and the Supreme Court being in jeopardy…while we are told that the hierarchy who deviously masterminded this unholy and undemocratic coronation, are banking that without any options left, and with the fear and threat of a potential Trump presidency looming, that they can rally those of us holding out, behind Hillary.
They are convinced that every one of us Democrats will eventually run to the polls to make sure that there is never a ‘President Trump’. That’s the plan. Their ace in the hole. An arrogant and corrupt Democratic ‘leadership’, oblivious to, and entirely discounting the glaring fact that there are many more of us who all the wiser, and see through their charade, and will not kowtow or have our intelligence insulted….and they forget that as then Senator Obama so eloquently warned, the ground has indeed shifted right under their feet…and the old play book no longer works – at least not on those of us awakened in 2008. We are now the completely jaded, unimpressed and frankly, unconvinced – Unconvinced that beyond her often re-worked and fine-tuned platitudes, constantly re-booted before our very eyes – Hillary’s choreographed and contrived and blatantly phony style (learned from years of political exploits which often employed and exploited racism – and based entirely on explicit manipulation and exploitation)…..And his – Trump’s – over the top and exaggeratedly offensive public rhetoric… in the end, many of us are unable to see any real difference quite frankly – and beyond the public rhetoric – we are ever so hard-pressed to distinguish between Hillary and her (and Bill’s, until very recently), ‘gracious’ and ‘generous’ and ‘very likable’ friend, and fellow New Yorker, Donald Trump.
For years now, Donald Trump has been everywhere spewing – after all, he’s been the most prominent and vocal proponent of that anti-President Obama birtherism – and for all that time, Hillary was in fact not offended, and had absolutely nothing to say about Trump and his birther movement …and Bill, when asked directly about it a couple of years ago, only gushed about just what a great and generous friend Trump was and has always been to him and Hillary – and how much he enjoyed their golf outings together…Bill actually rejected the premise that race or racism had anything to do with the obstructionism President Obama faced.
How sad then that black folks, allow themselves to be exploited and duped again and again – and willingly turn themselves over to be used and walked all over through blatantly manipulative and shallow overtures, and hollow platitudes delivered in insultingly affected manner – and choreographed appearances and pandering speeches -including one on race to some black people in Harlem, peppered with a few gratuitous allusions to, and pronouncements of her own ‘white privilege’ and other such familiar memes entirely offered to and delivered by Hillary via her speechwriters and spoon-fed her courtesy of the loyal house negroes on staff and only for the purposes of momentarily appealing to black folks and their now valuable votes calculated as necessary for that all-important firewall that’ll ensure a Hillary coronation….’Loyal’ house negroes many of whom have long hitched their political and financial fortunes to the Clintons – and entirely flattered by any attention shown them by the Clintons – including Bill’s hostile and angry insults of ‘bastards’ hurled at them and black folks in general…That was just of course only a term of endearment by Bill Clinton…had to be… How incredibly sad that black folks can be so easily fooled again and so easily manipulated by the hollow and contrived speech of this woman and her husband who’ve only ever cultivated, maintained and exploited black people for their own personal and political purposes and advancement –
A usually unapologetic neo-con hawk, who proudly touts her association with Henry Kissinger and boasts of his support for and endorsement of her .. A desperately power-hungry and callous opportunist who will stop at nothing to advance herself…even if it means pandering to and begrudgingly espousing ‘sensible’ incremental ‘progressive’ change to black folks she sees as beneath her – and only to shore-up her firewall..
Hillary constantly vacillates between entitled establishment – and over-rehearsed and unconvincing ‘populist’ … faux strength and faux compassion. Always trying to prove something by immediately defaulting to whatever hard-line position there is on offer, that will hopefully enhance and elevate her ‘tough presidential’ bona fides, before eventually switching over to a variety of pandering positions when focus groups and polls commissioned by her out-sized, overrated and overpriced brain trust and slew of expensive advisers, don’t quite bear out or support her original unprincipled stance…
Always all about her and her ambitions and shoring-up that firewall here, there and everywhere – to ensure her coronation as she did in New York after she carpet-bagged her way to the Senate…and as she’s once again doing today trying to wangle her way back into the White House obsessed only with the idea of being the first woman…
Even with every advantage and having every Democratic operative and talent working for her – and with the entire establishment behind her – and working for her as if their lives depended on it – even those like the CBC who can’t even be bothered usually to show up on behalf of their own constituents or the black President… or do the job they were elected to do … even with everyone holding her hand, singing her praise and doing her bidding, Hillary still falls short – even against the unassuming Senator from Vermont who was only supposed to be a foil for her rigged coronation — she’s proven again and again to be frankly quite mediocre, and the embodiment of poor judgement in every one of her initial calls on every important issue.
How could there possibly be anyone left who still believes that Hillary hasn’t had multiple opportunities over the last 30+ years to actually do stuff – to make a real difference – including for black folks, other minorities – and everyone else for that matter — and yet she’s not only fallen short, she’s hard-pressed to show anything she’s actually accomplished – without appropriating – and only by association of course, stuff that has been accomplished by others – E.g the President. The Clintons are only ever really good at taking care of and promoting and advancing themselves, lining their pockets – often under the guise of ‘public service’ or ‘charity’ …amassing a slew of beholden flunkies who are paid to eagerly play and whose loyalties are bought and locked in – and of course punishing their real, imagined and perceived enemies. They are renowned for their vindictiveness…something one suspects President Obama was happy to try to avoid when he offered her the Secretary of State position as a peace offering for him winning over her fair and square…And even then, she and Bill couldn’t help themselves…when they weren’t via their high-profile and equally hostile friends, bad-mouthing, contradicting and undermining the President and his administration, they were building private home servers to conduct official State business and only to circumvent and outwit the President – and to withhold as much information as possible from him and his staff…
And yet all you hear is how this woman is going to “get things done”?
Her time as Secretary of State was like a non-cancerous(?) growth on the bum, entirely unremarkable…for all intents and purposes, a vanity assignment that effectively stalled progress – and was no more effective or relevant than those ubiquitous celebrity U.N Goodwill ambassadors handed out like fancy cookies to favored celebrities – or as reward for support to certain politicians….a peace offering of sorts from the President who was too smart to risk having her too close as his running mate and Vice President. And as she prematurely quit the position hoping that President Obama would lose re-election while alternately through her high-profile friends trying to slander, undermine and dislodge Joe Biden … pushing for the President to discard Joe in favor of her and only to set her up to run this year…But President Obama wouldn’t bite…
And we all remember, as John Kerry immediately went to work racking up accomplishments right out the door, the media helping her try to save face by scrambling to put together a list of nothings that she accomplished in her time as SoS. What we do know is that she added one more undeserved high-profile title to her resume in preparation for this 2nd go at a presidential run. We also know that her time supposedly as our nation’s top Diplomat, accomplished precious little for our country – but was incredibly beneficial for the Clinton Foundation who enjoyed massive donations from Foreign nations and entities.
Now as she cheaply panders to firewalls of every stripe – riding President Obama’s coattails to the hilt – as part of her most recent re-booting of course – and only after her focus group results showed she needed the President’s coalition to win… those bloody ‘bastards’ and ‘eggheads and blacks’ – the same ones she and her advisers mocked and glibly dismissed in 2008 as she shamelessly dog-whistled her way ahead, first waiting for an event similar to what befell Robert Kennedy to happen to then Candidate Obama all while in hot pursuit of those ‘hardworking white folks in Appalachia’ and elsewhere.
We are told that all those perfectly sensible progressive goals and programs that good Democratic candidates like then Candidate Obama ran on, are now essentially pie in the sky…We are told that the unassuming Senator from Vermont is selling ‘false hope’…That it is ‘class warfare’ to expect the wealthy and Hillary’s Wall Street friends to pay their fair share and stop short-changing our country….We are told that the same basic programs citizens in other civilized countries enjoy are not doable here – and out of reach for us in the supposedly greatest country in the world.
We are told now – after every effort was made in 2008 to expose Hillary and to show us just how much we really did not want her…that she is now the only and best option for us …that she is our saving grace – and rather amusingly, and with a straight face too, by the very same folks who helped expose her, that she is the only acceptable heir to President Obama…This even after she and her flunkies callously went to work as Joe Biden mourned his son, doing what they termed ‘opposition research’ on Joe Biden and his grieving family – and releasing in drips what they considered potentially damaging stuff that was meant as a warning shot and to deter Joe from running…preemptively thwarting any ideas or plans he had about running as the President’s traditional and rightful heir.
MANY of these so-called black leaders who’ve been largely M.IA these past 8 years, but are now out in full force – darting from New Hampshire to Nevada and back to South Carolina and Atlanta…and trying on every t.v station they could possibly get on…Desperately trying to outdo each other to win the Clintons approval…and testifying each louder and harder than the last person, that Hillary is indeed God – and that her ice cubes are infinitely colder – even more so than President Obama’s – they tell us that Hillary will lead us to the promised land.
Again, what has she ever really accomplished on behalf of the America people – or black folks specifically in 30+ years? With all the fancy titles she’s had – and all the high-profile positions she’s been parachuted into undeservedly – because truth be told, she would not typically have been considered or placed in most of these positions under normal circumstances. We keep hearing all these prepared retorts about some vague thing or other extracted from some other thing…nothing ever really makes sense or quite cuts it … and yet her surrogates will shamelessly parrot these vague and empty non-accomplishments with a straight face….we do know however, that she’s been very handsomely remunerated by that group of disenfranchised folks on Wall Street…she is after all as someone aptly described her, a gold star ‘Goldman Sachs Concierge’…
Charged with herding black folks to Hillary to secure her firewall to her coronation…These shameless and corrupt hustlers and political opportunists who have sold their souls to the Clintons for a a few pieces of stale shrimps, a sip of cheap cocktails – and for a few special ones, the ultimate…a pat on the head from Bill and Hill …and for that, they are eager and willing to lead black folks to the fire ovens for the Clintons. They’ve all been around for years – and done precious nothing – They offer no solution or defense to their constituents killed in cold blood at the hands of rogue police officers…they turn a blind eye and scurry away as their constituents are poisoned …they’ve always lacked judgement, honor and integrity — and yet somehow they’ve all manged to remain in office all these years courtesy of black folks…and gerrymandering which has worked out quite well for most of them.
Dear black women, dear everyone…please stop being bamboozled and kowtowing … we are free now…Stop indulging the Clintons and their sleazy dead weight flunkies who try to force-feed us them and they by extension at every turn…we all deserve so much more and so much better…we can’t go back now….we is free ….and we now know better…and we have the scars to prove it too.
For anyone worn down and ready to hop on the Clinton bandwagon, please remember for all her schmoozing right now in this season of want – you’re just a firewall to one woman’s political ambitions and quest for ultimate power – Her resentment though temporarily hidden away, is still very much alive and kicking…And contrary to her glib name-dropping of the President, and he graciously playing along – there is no real friendship…this is a a deal and only a deal…Real friendships are not negotiated by political operatives and attorneys…Real friendships look more like what the The Obamas and the Bidens share…The Clintons have never forgiven the Obamas for winning the presidency…and try as the Obamas have to reach out, the Clintons have held on to their bitterness and grudge which they’ve takenout on the First Lady and her daughters too.
Don’t allow the CBC to con you – and only for a few shrimps for themselves from massa, they will willingly mislead and conspire to lead black folks to that slaughter house……
The desperate quest for power and hypocrisy…
Never forget, that anyone who wants power this badly, so badly that they are willing to lie and do just about anything for it, must be denied it at all costs…Those who crave power least deserve it most – as they are less prone to be corrupted by it – or to abuse it…
Black People, no more Bushes, no more Clintons, no more dynasties.
The Clintons will only work to blunt President Obama’s influence and usurp his legacy if they ever get near that white House again…they want it all …for them, there’s no room to share or space in the democratic party or on the world stage for two big dogs…
They’ve had their time…time for another American family to enjoy the White House.
