Los Angeles-BC They came to city hall, armed with their Starbucks, Smartphones, laptops, I-Pods filled with music. Signs read “We need real jobs!” and “we are pissed and stuff too!”
On the grassy knoll, a Bivouac was set up complete with left over from the sixties types that had managed to hitchhike up from the dumpsters that they call homes in Venice Beach.
These protesters had everything they needed to stage a full blown protest with all the protest elements. Noise, slogans that make little or no sense whatsoever and old guys that seemed to be the leaders.
The only thing they didn’t have was a cause. It seemed as if no one knew why they were at any of the protests happening across America. Most said they were angry, but when asked to explain, none of the people asked seemed to have an answer.
I have heard what the talk radio crowd is saying about these protests. Most seem to ridicule the protests and the protesters themselves, passing them off as idiots and losers that have nothing better to do because they are too lazy to work.
Well that may be true in most cases. But I am of the opinion that President Obama is the real focus of the public ire in this situation, but because he is half black people are simply afraid of being labeled racists or even worse, having black “protesters” come down and beat them with baseball bats and bricks.
That’s why these protesters don’t want to state their cause, plain and simple. They are afraid of being labeled racist not by the black race, not by the very democrats of which most of the protesters belong to, but by the media itself.
Because that’s exactly what the media will do. If these protesters had the courage to challenge Obama on his policy or lack thereof, Keith Olberrmann, Anderson, all of the contributors of Huffington Post and Ariana Huffington herself would be calling these protesters racists.
Its no small wonder these people are mad as hell and don’t want to take it anymore. They were sold a bill of goods in Obama, sure. But more importantly these protesters were sold a bill of goods by the media.
After all, it was the media that threw the best qualified person on the field of three candidates under the bus.
John McCain didn’t stand a chance and is so spineless that its hard to tell what party he belongs to at times. Obama had no experience and the media knew it.
But then there was Hillary Clinton who had already been in the white house for eight years with her husband Bill Clinton.
Hillary knows how Washington works and in my humble opinion was the best in this field.
The media decided to throw the woman under the bus in favor of the half black guy with no experience whatsoever. In Obama they had a half black man that would make history and prove to the world that America is not a nation of bigots.
I guess no one in the media worried about his lack of qualifications and experience.
Here we are almost three years later, and all of the “change” Obama promised us has fallen by the wayside in favor of name calling and blaming a republican lead congress that has only been at the reigns for eight months.
If I had the time and didn’t have to work like the other 90 percent of Americans, I would go down there and re-direct the protesters energy at the people they should be protesting against, the American media.
After all, its the media’s fault we are in this current predicament we find ourselves today. They propped Obama up and made us believe that he was the man for the job of President of the United States.
You can check the archives of this website and find countless articles that I wrote at the time that say just what stated above.
I could not believe then as I cannot believe now that the media ditched Hillary and that the people (many of who are probably out there protesting right now) were stupid enough to choose the half black man over the woman.
There. Now that I have cut to the nut of the protesters, I am off to work on this fine Saturday afternoon. JD
