Getting to Know Obama’s Happy Warrior, “Historian” Michael Moore, Better

Moore: Founding Fathers Suppressed The Vote; Calls It A “Founding Principle Of This Country”

video from realclearpolitics:

On MSNBC’s “Last Word” tonight, activist and filmmaker Michael Moore discussed what he believes is the origins of voter suppression and how to get people who aren’t going to vote to change their minds.

“Voter suppression was one of the founding principles of this country. Our Founding Fathers suppressed the vote by saying only white male property owners could vote,” Moore said about voter suppression.

Moore begged “Last Word” viewers to find someone they know isn’t going to vote and change their minds by taking them out to lunch and the bar,.

“Just take someone,” Moore pleaded. “We all know somebody and make it your mission tomorrow to take that person out to vote, take them to lunch, take them to the bar afterwards. Do whatever you have to do that its legal to get them to the polls.” Transcript below.

MICHAEL MOORE: Let me say this, because I don’t think this has really been pointed out. Voter suppression was one of the founding principles of this country. Our Founding Fathers suppressed the vote by saying only white male property owners could vote. And through the 200 plus years, we’ve chipped away at the voter suppression … blacks could vote, then women could vote and now the blacks had to — we had to have Civil Rights laws.

There’s been voter suppression since the beginning. So my plea to the 90 million people that are expected not to vote tomorrow, according to the USA Today poll — my plea to them, if they’re watching, is to please … so many people fought for this right. It was so hard because we have fought voter suppression for 200 plus years in this country. Exercise that right. Go to the polls, don’t stay home. It’s only 20 minutes, and it’s free! It’s your country.

Selfishly — I’m saying it too, because the poll said that they asked the non-voters, ‘if you did vote, how many of you would vote for Obama?’

43% for Obama, 18% for Romney.

So clearly there is a goldmine there of people that could vote for President Obama. And I encouraging people on my website, Twitter, and all of that. I want to get a million people to the polls tomorrow that otherwise wouldn’t have gone by asking.

Just take someone. We all know somebody and make it your mission tomorrow to take that person out to vote, take them to lunch, take them to the bar afterwards. Do whatever you have to do that its legal to get them to the polls.

 (Comment:    Few Americans have been so celebrated by Obama’s Democrat Party than its Happy Man, Michael Moore, the well known  leftwing story film maker.  
Unlike Mr. Moore I was a public high school teacher for more than a decade of my life.   
Mr. Moore seems shocked, really shocked  that 225 years ago our American founders suppressed voting when founding our Republic.
I am sorry he had such an inadequate education when he was a boy in Michigan.    Most lefties are educationally deprived,  I have noticed.    They severely pick and choose information regarding mankind’s struggle to live in a free society.      Although many values held by the then civilized in the world might be held as  equal or even ‘superior’ to ours of today…..whatever ‘superior’ might mean….. the American experience developing a representative republic was truly revoltionary in the world of that day.     Women, children, Negroes, members of Indian tribes, Tasmanians and others not born in America to Americans, and such were not allowed to vote.    
Voting then was considered a privilege and a duty of learned men.   With the landing of Marxism upon American shores, voting has lost its privilege status in favor of  decision making by committee of the unelected…..selected by Obamaling bureaucrats in power rather than by citizen vote.
Today in our USofA,  being learned no longer has  value…..only ‘the equal’ is valued, even worshipped in Marxist corners……When all humans become equally subhuman, that is,  when thinking becomes identical one person to another, will  America finally reach to heights of Obama-Moore perfection.
A couple of years ago across the sea again in England a wealthy lefty married her dolphin.   Michael Moore has, no doubt, already studied the possibilities of registering husband-dolphins for Barack Hussein Obama’s third term re-election try in 2020.)

How is it Possible the Economically Depressed Black American Communities Still Votes Marxist-Democrat?

Black Depression

by Walter Russell Mead   at the American Interest:

The October employment numbers deepened the gloom among African Americans and those (including the Via Meadia team) who believe that the United States as a whole cannot progress as it should unless African Americans are getting ahead too. As a report from Think Progress reminds us, in October, African American unemployment rose almost a full percentage point to 14.3 percent.

As we’ve noted in earlier posts, unemployment is only part of the story. America’s Black middle class is facing a crisis of historic proportions. African Americans were among the biggest losers in the housing bubble; well intentioned but ill advised policy changes intended to get more low income families and marginal households into home ownership kicked in just in time to lure African American families into the housing market at the peak of the bubble. The loss of wealth and savings has been nothing short of catastrophic; decades of progress in building net worth for middle class and lower middle class minority families have been wiped out since 2007.

Some of President Obama’s political opponents are using these numbers to bludgeon the administration, but politics aside, the crisis of the Black middle class is a crisis for the whole country. The Think Progress report repeats boilerplate liberal, blue model orthodoxies about the situation but if anything it understates the severity and significance of the problem; the biggest sources of middle class employment for African American workers (government and manufacturing) are drying up and for a variety of reasons African Americans are less likely to benefit from the new jobs that are opening up or to have the access to capital for small business start ups.

But ritualistically invoking the classical tropes of blue social policy won’t help Black America. Traditional blue model approaches are no longer feasible: funds for new urban initiatives will be in short supply for the foreseeable future, affirmative action in education is in retreat, manufacturing will not again provide enough high wage jobs to support a growing middle class, and government hiring (direct and in organizations like the USPS) cannot and will not expand at the rates that would be required to pick up the slack. Neither wholesale industrial protection nor strict immigration restriction (both policies supported by some in the African American community in the hope that these measures would increase demand for low skilled labor and therefore create employment opportunities and raise wages for, among others, African American workers) will be adopted anytime soon.

If President Obama loses next Tuesday’s election, the incoming Romney administration will need to think hard about policy responses to the crisis in precisely that element of the African American community that provides social stability and a ladder of hope. And if President Obama wins reelection, his team will have to come to grips with the devastation the last four years have brought to his most loyal supporters and, one hopes, begin to think seriously and realistically about policy changes that might do some good.

Blue has failed, but Black isn’t going away. The last generation of social policy aimed at helping more African Americans join the middle class. But now the middle class itself is passing through a wrenching transition, and we need a new conversation about what this means for African American families and young people launching careers in a changing world.

Good American, Mitt Romney, Captures the American Spirit

Mary Lou and Floyd Stewart sent me the following ‘testimony’ to their  reaction from  the latter days of campaigning by Mitt Romney to become our nation’s savior from Obama Marxism expanding further .

Please read their note and perhaps you can feel the faith and confidence I have along with them  that this good soul and bright and rational American is just what this nation needs in this time of its crises. 

The epistle from the Stewarts:

You’ve got to believe this man would be a gift to our country !!!!
A remarkable story from a longtime D.C. political operative of just how personally moved Mitt Romney was following a campaign stop in Red Rocks Colorado where over 10,000 enthusiastic supporters greeted the man they hope will be the next President of the United States.
Got this feedback earlier today and thought you’d like to hear it. You know, I’ve gone from just trying to defeat Obama to really trying to help Governor Romney be this country’s next president. I’m really starting to believe there might be something very special about this man. This took place out in Colorado. Just a couple days ago. Probably my favorite campaign trail story that’s come back my way so far this election. Wish I had been there. I’m going to try and get a little poetic on you here. Hope I pull it off OK and do this story justice. Feel free to help me out a bit in the telling. I would be embarrassed for people to know just how bad my spelling really is. And sadly, that’s not a joke. -INSIDER
As the governor was en route to the amphitheatre they were told the crowd was showing “strong numbers”. What greeted him was a lot more than just “strong numbers” though. It was a massive wave of thousands and thousands of supporters. Before going on the governor apparently peeked out a few times and was shaking his head in disbelief at just how many people were there to see him. He was told by organizers up to a thousand more were turned away because there simply wasn’t any room left. People said you could feel the size of the crowd under your feet backstage. Somebody had passed out a ton of “thundersticks” and the people were banging them together and making this amazing rumbling noise. There were some real veteran campaigners backstage and I’m told they were all blown away by this crowd in Colorado. It really was like some big time rock show. Just a huge response for the governor.
So Governor Romney goes onstage and gives his speech. The crowd just totally embraces him. From beginning to end. Every word. They are fired up. Loud. Positive. Cheering. Just an amazing moment for the campaign. Everybody backstage were all smiles and peeking out at all those people and shaking their heads. This is the kind of moment in a campaign you never forget. Ever. Nobody who hasn’t experienced it can really understand this feeling. You’re looking at a candidate being transformed right in front of your eyes into the next Leader of the Free World. They go from being human into something just a bit more. It’s all those people. That energy. It kind of fills the candidate up and makes them bigger than life. And you are watching it happen in real time. Right then.
The governor returns backstage and he is smiling and shaking hands, taking congratulations from everybody around him. He’s saying how great it was. Somebody yells out he’s going to win Colorado and the governor laughs and says he thinks so too. And then something very interesting happens. He moves away from the group of people just a bit. Maybe ten or fifteen feet or so. Just enough to have a little space to himself. And enough people notice that the area gets a lot more quiet, and they are trying to watch the governor without looking like they are watching the governor. They can all kind of tell something is happening right then. It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment. And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.” And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.
I’m 100% convinced Mitt Romney was shaken to his soul right then and there. I think at that moment it was sinking in he might really be the next American president, and it humbled him right to his core, in every nerve of his body. And as he was saying that little prayer, you could hear the sound of thunder from all those thundersticks outside. Like this huge low rumble that just surrounded all of them at once. A quiet little prayer, and the sound of thunder.
The sound of God.

Obamasnots Live in Canada, too…..Some actually Grow Up and Discover the Real Obama!

Camille Paglia is quoted in the article from Toronto’s main newpaper, the Globe and Mail I hope you all will read below.   What a lovely mind she possesses to recognize a basic truth about  our American Obama matters.    

Her claims provoked the following thoughts of the Obamasnots I know and work for.  I was a snot myself for years when I taught at the University of Minnesota high school and had finished accumulating my 700 plus quarter credits of actual learning.

Aware of my snotty condition I purposely  chose  to teach in an American urban working class community in the mid 1960s when our country was still civilized.  I thought I needed to be ‘leveled out’.  

  I met the real America and fell in love with its soul.

I now own a landscape garden business, and have for the past 22 years.   We have been hit hard by the Obama absence as a problem solving president.   Personally, I knew he was a fraud by following his corrupt campaign against Hillary.    Hillary was a spectacular conartist as well, but I recognized and respected her as being an American one however.   But I was aware of Obama’s racist background with his father fingure, Jeremiah Wright,  and his leftwing and Marxist training at Harvard and Columbia.     I discovered his connections to Marxist, Saul Alinsky’, tenets regarding community organizing in Chicago later in the presidential campaign as John McCain was limping along stumbling through his loosing.

Honestly, I had great hopes that he was not a charlatan democrat despite all of the signs he had at least black racist sympathies.    I followed him closely by pain of television.    When he threw  his grandmother under the bus as a white racist, because  she confessed she felt threatened when alone on the street when nastily dressed and sounding black youths approached her, I knew Barack Hussein Obama had a serious  evil streak.

Democrats advertise his speech as the 21st century’s “Gettysburg Address”….remember?     I knew then that the entire country’s  democratic fabric was in trouble.

Most Democrats I know, the both sexes, are display many, many college educated snob moments……nice people in  their own fellow snob stations, but condescending to anyone  in the landscape business especially toward anyone who works up a sweat.

Generally, these good people when among lefties, are magnificently ignorant about anything outdoors and their guys admit that and don’t bother to dictate that which they know nothing about.   Not so the lefty female.     She does lefty learnings from the great bureaucracy that commands  a child’s knowledge of the flower garden to gain the title of “Master Gardener”.

Now, fat with status she can instruct a simple home owner, usually a friend with  the same  lefty persuasion  that any arborvitae that yellows up in Spring has a disease and should be ripped  out immediately before it spreads……despite their plants names being Yellow Ribbon, or Sunkist.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing…….and such is the case in Canada as well.

Canadians, perhaps even a majority,  think snottily about us American conservatives.   Our Christianity isn’t dead yet and we are only now destroying our family structure  with the wars of gay marriage and bigamy and polygamy  on the battleflelds now and into our future.  

We haven’t even been feminized enough  to force  all or our state governments  to ban capital punishment.

Both cultures are in a state of decay…… Mitt Romney, our exceptionally fine  candidate for the presidency  has become especially  aware of this decay during this campaign by the tongue of his opponent……….but not the college educated Obama Marxists determined to determine citizen life of university preachings forever more.

Please read the story of good Canadians spying on our present American disputes regarding an articulate Iago -Obama conniving to exact revenge from the country he was taught to hate against  a gentleman of religion and class,  of  family and business,  with education and grace:

Why Obama doesn’t deserve to win

Margaret Wente        at    The Globe and Mail,   Toronto

“If Barack Obama loses the election, my friend Jim will be one reason why.

Four years ago, Jim voted enthusiastically for hope and change. This year, he’s voting for Mitt Romney. “I like Romney,” he says. “When folks saw and listened to him right next to Obama, he looked and spoke more like a president than Obama did.”

Up here in Canada, a large majority of us still belong to the Obama tribe. If Americans were smart enough to think like us, Barack Obama would win by a margin of at least three to one. We can’t fathom why fair-minded people would vote for Mitt Romney. Most of my Canadian friends believe that Romney voters are either callous capitalists or dupes and fools – mouth-breathing Tea Partiers, country-club Republicans, closet racists, or working-class types who’ve been tricked into voting against their own interests.

Jim is none of these. He was thrilled to help elect the first black president. He choked up at the inauguration. He believes that universal health care is a moral imperative. He thinks the Bush regime’s reckless misadventures in foreign lands were total disasters. He believes in a decent safety net and sensible business regulation. But President Obama isn’t the postpartisan, centrist bridge-builder he told us he would be. “Obama is, in fact, a lefty, and given a free hand we really would become a debt-laden, sinking, entitlement-heavy, socialist basket case,” Jim says.

Mr. Obama’s appeal among minorities remains as strong as ever. But white Americans are breaking up with him across the board. In 2008, he was behind by 12 percentage points among white voters. This time, according to a recent Washington Post-ABC tracking poll, he’s trailing by 21 percentage points. (Mitt Romney with 59 per cent, Mr. Obama at 38 per cent.)

Plenty of Americans feel overlooked by both parties. Jennifer Erickson, a married mom in the swing state of Iowa told the Des Moines Register that the way she sees it, Mr. Obama champions the poor and Mr. Romney is for the ultra-rich. “Either way, the middle class loses.”

She’s not the only one who feels abandoned. The pro-Obama punditocracy is full of misery and reproach. They generally agree that the man in whom they had invested so much hope has been a crushing disappointment. “Obama never espoused a cause bigger than his own political survival,” wrote Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen in a poignant cri de coeur. “I will vote for Obama with regret. I wish he was the man I once mistook him for.”

Camille Paglia is harsher. In her view, the Democratic Party has lost all connection with the working class. As she told Glenn Reynolds, “I don’t see progressives. All I see is white upper-middle-class liberals who speak in this unctuous way about the needs of the poor.” (She’s voting green.)

To Canadians, Mr. Obama’s achievement in rectifying the barbarous injustices of the U.S. health-care system is reason enough to re-elect him. Americans don’t see it that way, though. A large number of them liked the system pretty much the way it was. They would have preferred small fixes, so that people with pre-existing conditions would be covered and nobody would go bankrupt paying for their kid’s cancer treatments. Instead, they got Obamacare – a bloated monster of a bill that only a bureaucrat could love. Nobody understands it and nobody knows how it will play out. Maybe it’s better than nothing, and maybe it’s worse. At any rate, it will do nothing to control costs, which are soaring.

But the worst thing about Obamacare was that it was awful politics. By ramming it through Congress when he did, Mr. Obama sacrificed the chance to carry out serious financial reform, and also to build consensus with the Republicans on other vital issues. Obamacare may have been a moral victory, but it was a failure of strategic leadership. As Democratic congressman Barney Frank told New York magazine, “I think we paid a terrible price for health care.”

Then came the campaign. Mr. Romney moved to the centre, but Mr. Obama didn’t. The President’s entire campaign had been built on demonizing his opponent as a charmless, rapacious plutocrat. It all went off the rails when Mr. Romney showed up at the first debate and impersonated a normal human being. Now Mr. Romney’s flip-flopping, which used to be regarded as a flaw, has become an asset. Democrats have tried to portray him as a heartless opportunist who will say anything to win. Instead, voters like my friend Jim see him as a pragmatist who will govern from the centre, despite his campaign platform. They also agree with David Brooks, the conservative columnist who used to admire Mr. Obama’s temperament and character. Mr. Brooks now says that Mitt Romney is “more likely to get big stuff done.”

The trouble is, this time around Mr. Obama hasn’t bothered to campaign on the big stuff. He has campaigned on little stuff. We know where he stands on free contraception (not exactly the biggest priority for voters these days), and we know he wants to tax the rich. But what’s the long-term plan? What’s his vision for the next four years? If he has one, he’s kept it to himself. Amazingly, both candidates have managed to spend the entire election campaign avoiding any mention of the fiscal cliff, or the fiscal abyss that America is falling into even if it avoids the fiscal cliff, or the steps the nation will have to take to save itself from economic oblivion. There’s a herd of elephants in the room, and they’re all invisible.

The more I listen to my American friends, the more convinced I am that Barack Obama doesn’t deserve to win. Sure, he was dealt a rotten hand. But he squandered his political capital and his opportunities. The trouble is, I’m pretty sure the other guy doesn’t deserve to win either. Good luck, Jim! You’re going to need it.”
