Is he a liar? Is he a racist? Or is he just misunderstood?

I am going to be channel surfing tonight between watching those who dats play the Lions and the republican presidential debates. This is because I really want to hear what these republicans are saying. I haven't made up my mind who I will vote for come 2012 just yet....

Anywhoo, you gotta love that sister in New Hampshire who confronted Rick (I should be in a) Sanitarium.

"At a campaign event outside a pharmacy in Hollis, New Hampshire Saturday afternoon, an African-American woman confronted Rick Santorum over recent comments he made that the NAACP and others have called racially insensitive.

While speaking about welfare reform last week, Santorum was quoted as saying, “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.” The candidate now denies that he said “black,” claiming instead that he said “blah.”

At the campaign stop Saturday, the woman — who slipped away from the event before ThinkProgress was able to get her name — asked, “Why do you have a problem against black people?”
WOMAN: Mr. Santorum, why do you have a problem against black people? We are the only ones who need aid? The statistics show that it’s not the popularity [sic] that’s the most needy.
SANTORUM: I didn’t say that. I understand that.
WOMAN: OK, then why’d you say that?
SANTORUM: OK, we gotta go. I didn’t say that. " [Story & Video]
Honestly, I think people are focusing on the wrong issue with Rick's statement. It's not so much that he said something that was racially insensitive while speaking to like minded people. (Welcome to A-merry-ca) The bigger issue is that he is flat out lying about what he said. If a man can lie about something as obvious as this, what else will he lie about?

Still, there are some folks who do not believe that Ricky was being racist. They believe that he was merely trying to reach out to us Negroes.

"NAACP President Benjamin Jealous denounced the comments as "outrageous," and even Fox News host Bill O'Reilly had to remind Santorum that his comments were specious when you consider that "most of the people, as you know, on welfare are white people." Then Santorum made the whole thing worse by denying that he'd even said "black" and insisting instead that what he'd actually said was "blah."

Blah, indeed.

In this weekend's Saturday-and-Sunday New Hampshire primary-debate double-header, if he doesn't take the opportunity to -- in Senate-speak -- revise and extend his thoughts on blacks and welfare, he'll just wind up being the latest in a long line of GOP politicians who not only can't connect with the black vote, but can't even make a convincing case that they've tried. Santorum tried -- and awkwardly failed -- to articulate a position that you hear all the time from black conservatives: that government assistance hurts African Americans over the long term. The problem for Santorum is that it doesn't sound as if he truly understands that message." [Source]

Yes, reaching out is nice. And I would more than welcome an open and honest dialogue on matters of race. The problem is, of course, that when you are talking about republican politicians, it's a thin line between scapegoating and reaching out.

The current crop of Republican "social conservative" candidates for president are doing their level best to "channel" Ronald Reagan in their stump speeches. This is the reason we have so much emphasis on "digging up" Ronald Reagan's mythical "Welfare Queen" which he enjoyed denouncing during his first presidential campaign. Gingrich started it with his suggestion that ghetto kids have no role models to inspire them to accomplish anything in life. He followed it up with a suggestion that these kids should be put to work cleaning the toilets in schools thereby replacing highly paid school janitors.

Gingrich later added another racial charged dog whistle to his stump speech calling President Obama "the food stamp ppresident". All the other candidates (except for Ron Paul) noting how the media has been picking up Gingrich's racial sound bite have started using them in their speeches. Hence you have inarticulate Ricky trying to get into the act by saying what he wants to do for black or "BLAH" people, declaring his ignorance for all to see of the fact that white people are the majority of people on public welfare.

Thus you can see how these Republican "parrots" are simply incapable of original creative thought. Gingrich, simply because he is an old Washington inside politician decided to harken back to the Reagan era, a time that he feels most comfortable with, decides to channel Reagan's propaganda that all black people are lazy and shiftless and are supported by government welfare. The net result is that all of the other candidates (except for paul and Huntsman) are now rushing to incorporate some form of Gingrich's racially tinged euphemisms into their "socially conservative" speeches.

If the American people are watching these idiots, how can they come to the conclusion in November that any one of these self-serving clowns is prepared to guide America through the difficult waters of so many major global iconoclasms upcoming in the 21st century?

@parvenu:

I know one thing, they pissed a lot of white folks off talking about eliminating welfare and food stamps. Yup! They started a fire that they won't be able to put out. White folks was talking about them so bad (10,000 and something worth of comments), until I almost felt sorry for them. Notice that I did say "almost" and NOT "I did". I was ROFL because they had laughing so hard.

46 million. 46 million Americans on food stamps. Thats a record. Another Obama first.

*they had me laughing so hard*

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Yeah, I wonder why 46 million Americans on food stamps. Could it have something to do with shipping jobs overseas? Or laying off thousands of workers so CEOs can get those millions in bonus checks? Or because of the Republicans trickle down economic strategy? Or AIG, bankers, etc., scam?

PilotX said...

At least they didn't go down to Philadelphia,MS and start spouting off about states rights. Oh yeah, that's right Rick Perry already said he wanted to secede from the union. Not only do these clowns want to restart Jim Crow but the civil war. Gotta love southerners and the party they support.

PilotX said...

@ Granny. Maybe it's the fact they have been bamboozled into believing unions are bad and they can only trust corporations. Just look at right to work states and compare wages and benefits to non-right to work states. But hey, if the majority of people in these conservative states want to kowtow to corporations that's their right.

Yeah, i ponder that to. Could it be democrats want to get as many Americans on welfare so than can than claim if you vote Republicans, they will take your check?

PilotX said...

"Could it be democrats want to get as many Americans on welfare so than can than claim if you vote Republicans, they will take your check?"

I doubt that. I'm from Illinois where most hard working blue collar union folks vote Democrat because they are more friendly to labor historically than Republicans. Fun fact is many people on public assistance don't vote so that idea isn't very strong.

Why is obama and the dems embracing Republican trickle down economic strategy?

Why would aig,bankers,etc be driving people to food stamps.

They and wall street gave more money to obama than any dem or rep in the last 20 years.

Although they did ask Paul about his racist newsletter.

Freedom has failed.

I am not advocating a return to bondage, but black people cannot run a city. Once a city becomes more than 30% black is ceases to function.

We need to function together as a society and use the talents of everyone as they are. Our idea of equality is deeply flawed. We are equal as human beings, but not in all human endeavors.

The daily stories of black savagery in this country are normally reported only in local media. The story from the Ocala Star Banner, contains no references to the race of the attackers and the victim is silent about the fact that the seven youths who ganged up on a 13 year old girl and beat her into unconsciousness are blacks named Zantavia, Ladricka, Javaris, Alphonso, Bria, Lamiracle, and Jebria, and that the victim is white.

In liberal America, if you're white, and you're harmed by blacks, society doesn't care a flip about you. You are expendable.

Girl Beaten Unconscious Over Bus Seat: Cops
7 teens charged with battery, disorderly conduct
By the Associated Press
Posted Jan 7, 2012 4:33 PM CST
(AP)--Seven central Florida teenagers were arrested after authorities said they punched and kicked a 13-year-old until she was unconscious while on a school bus. The victim told authorities that yesterday was her first time riding the bus and no one would let her sit down. About 75 children were riding the bus bound for a middle school in Ocala, a rural city north of Orlando. The victim said someone threw a shoe at her and she threw one back, according to an arrest report.

One girl allegedly asked students if they wanted to hit the victim, then instructed the teens to form a circle and began hitting and kicking the victim. Several witnesses said they saw the girl fall to the floor and "appear to have a seizure and pass out," according to the arrest report. The victim, who is not being identified, was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with a concussion, severe bruising on her head and muscle spasms. Seven teens, ranging in age from 12 to 15, were charged with battery and disorderly conduct.

Where is this magical land "liberal" America? I'd like to visit.

"Why do you need so much special care based upon skin color? Why can't you just be an American?"

I've been asking this for years but seems as though conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and now Newt and Santorum like to distinguish people like me as somehow unAmerican. This has been a problem for years. Why not ask this of no Slappz and others who regularly lambast Black people or do you only ask this of Black people? Strange.

Well Field, lately I have been pretty good about ignoring trolls but sometimes I just can't let ignorance and misinformation just sit. Like the moron who "heard" United will be laying off pilots. I mean c'mon why even write stupidity like that? Even the dimmist among us know we're heading into the summer months when there is more flying and we're actually hiring. Damn, the lengths they go to feel special.

Why would you come and hang out on a predominantly black blog? Aren't you afraid that we might do something to you seeing how we are savages and so violent and all? After all, if you are that paranoid of black folks, looks like you would hang out on Stormfront or Fox Nation. That would make more common sense, but well...


Oh, before you ask, this blog is listed as Afrosphere blog and friends, which would mean white friends as well, but I take it you are not a friend since you come here to disparage and insult us. However, Field gives you the okay to hang out here.

Bullshit. FN is much more than what you what it to be. It appeals to a much wider and broader audience that cuts across all races than Blacks like you selfishly want to admit. That's why Whites and all races come to meet here. Unfortunately there are a "few" Negroes like you who want to define FN as Black. You want an all black blog? Start your own, but don't be arrogant and define Field's blog to suit your needs. You are a disgrace to our race:

"That's why I love the blog "Field Negro" so much. Field, as he's known to his fans, has the sense of reality that it takes to call out the (CowPuckey) of blame beating by those who are in positions of power and their lackeys. Because of his handle and his unabashed way of writing about racial issues, Field is often cited as a "Black blogger." What he is, however, is a first-class detector of blame deflection and an excellent student of history. If you want to write about the past and future of repression there's really no other perspective to take - which is why everyone should read Field."

"Btw, most people know the airlines aren't doing well. When the time comes and it will be soon, a pilot like you will be let go."

OK, I'll play. Are you referring to airlines in general or United specifically? You must have missed our last quarter results. We did pretty well and now pilots are included in profit sharing. So pray tell, when is this so called hard time coming when a pilot like myself will be let go? Be specific, curious where you get your information.

"It's still winter and summer of 2012 is a long way off and you have no idea whether business is going to be good or not."

Um, this is where your ignorance really shows. Manpower planning has to forecast several months into the future to properly staff the airline. It takes months to ramp up the fleet and train pilots so if one were be ready for the summer flying schedule one would have to begin preparations in the winter.

"Obviously you don't know that the airline industry is suffering greatly and some airlines are bankrupt."

Um, maybe you should tell that to Delta, Southwest and United as all had strong results and profits. Sure SOME airlines are bankrupt but then again some aren't. Wow, you are certainly the genius.

"When the time comes and it will be soon, a pilot like you will be let go."

Or maybe a pilot like me is better informed about the state of the airline and actually talks to manpower planning and knows what is really going on vice speculating from the trailer park. With retirements alone I'll move up a thousand numbers in the next few years.

"Now see, I tried to help you out by giving you forewarning and what do you do? You ignore it and assume it's wrong."

I do appreciate your help but you're a bit out of your league and if I need advice in your area of expertise such as screwing your sister/cousin/wife I'll definitely ask but as it concerns aviation don't be too offended if I kinda ignore your ignorant ramblings. Thanks for the attempt, it's cute you're trying to bond with me.

Yeah, I could explain to you how vacancy bids work and manpower projections and such but I'd probably be wasting my time as you seem to know so much more about my job but strangely are never specific. BTW the latest projections show a deficit of pilots and a need to hire but then again why would I know more about my industry than a racist internet troll. I bet you could impress your racist white friends at stormfront but I'm not buying your act. Until you include specific names and financial data you are just another ignorant white male jealous that a Black man has a better career and is much smarter and better looking than you are;-) But like I said, it is kinda cute how you take an interest in my industry.

US Major Airlines Report Over $1 billion in 3Q Profit
Posted on | November 23, 2011 | No Comments

The spike in jet fuel prices did not prevent the country’s seven largest airline companies from earning $1.09 billion in combined net income for the three months ended Sept. 30, paving the way for expansion and increasing the need for new pilots.


United Continental Holdings, parent company of merger partners United Airlines (UA) and Continental Airlines (CO), posted a best-among-US majors third-quarter net profit of $653 million.

It does not make logical sense for a person to constantly tell black people that they want them to stay away from them, but yet they can't stay away from black people.

BTW, Field's blog as well as other blogs, mine included has always been people of different color groups. That's not the problem. However, like I said before why would a person come around black people, if they want black people to stay away from them, especially if they are so fearful of them?

Several witnesses said they saw the girl fall to the floor and "appear to have a seizure and pass out," according to the arrest report. The victim, who is not being identified, was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with a concussion, severe bruising on her head and muscle spasms. Seven teens, ranging in age from 12 to 15, were charged with battery and disorderly conduct.




This is typical black behavior. If this had been whites jumping on a 13 year old black, the mdeia would be all over the story demanding hate crime charges. The media censors race when it comes to minority on white crime.

The daily stories of black savagery in this country are normally reported only in local media. The story from the Ocala Star Banner, contains no references to the race of the attackers and the victim is silent about the fact that the seven youths who ganged up on a 13 year old girl and beat her into unconsciousness are blacks named Zantavia, Ladricka, Javaris, Alphonso, Bria, Lamiracle, and Jebria, and that the victim is white.

In liberal America, if you're white, and you're harmed by blacks, society doesn't care a flip about you. You are expendable.

Girl Beaten Unconscious Over Bus Seat: Cops
7 teens charged with battery, disorderly conduct
By the Associated Press
Posted Jan 7, 2012 4:33 PM CST
(AP)--Seven central Florida teenagers were arrested after authorities said they punched and kicked a 13-year-old until she was unconscious while on a school bus. The victim told authorities that yesterday was her first time riding the bus and no one would let her sit down. About 75 children were riding the bus bound for a middle school in Ocala, a rural city north of Orlando. The victim said someone threw a shoe at her and she threw one back, according to an arrest report.

One girl allegedly asked students if they wanted to hit the victim, then instructed the teens to form a circle and began hitting and kicking the victim.

A Conservative Teacher said...

Slow the roll... what did he say that was racist? That he called people who's skin color is black 'black'? That might not be politically correct, but it doesn't demonstrate racism.

Was the racist thing that he said that black people don't need government aid to get ahead- that they are strong and intelligent just like everyone else and they need any more patronizing helping hands? This doesn't really sound racist- in fact, it sounds the opposite of racism.

And it doesn't appear that he ever said that black people are bad and are the only population that needs aid- so the statement the lady made was incorrect and he should have denied it.

I'm sorry, perhaps I'm not crazy like you all, but I don't see 'lying' and 'racist' anywhere here. I think you're seeing things that aren't there.

We have never previously discussed anything Omar inane ranting on your part do not a discussion make.


What abuse? Why do you hate yourself so much? Your self hate drips like venom from each and every word you post. Why do you feel so inferior that you can't hang and must cry and whine? You aren't a victim, you aren't being abused by others through they having a different opinion. Your lack of proficiency in various points of life aren't the fault of anyone else, nor will anyone accept responsibility for your ridiculous views and destructive nature. Who in the world taught you that you had a right to have a view and no one else could oppose it otherwise you become a victim? How in the world can you live with yourself knowing all the while that you do nothing but excuse the essence of failure that you are by continual whining and crying.

If someone engages you and this makes them "empty and meaningless" do you even have enough intelligence to understand what that makes you? Well obviously you don't or you wouldnt support the infantile views that you do, views that cannot withstand even the most minute scrutiny without your needing to fall back on crying your eyes out like a little baby screaming how; if but for the unfairness of the world you would be better, smarter, tougher, richer, but alas you have the right stuff but the "world" is against you.

If you can't handle the world then get off, but do yourself a favor and stop being a whiney little bitch. No one respects a man who is nothing more than a bag full of whining and crying bullshit.

Note; while a coherent thought might take you eons to gather this took a minute. So you can know that you arent an important part of anyones life at all, rather like a weak fart simply an afterthought and foul annoyance.

But we also ignore the same tendencies exhibited by Jews, Latinos and Indigenous sistas and brothas. Most ethnic minorities in any society tend to have similar responses but white people never show empathy to understand this very human trait. Interesting.

Jews? Have similar responses? You're out of your mind. When it comes to diversity of opinions or where the battle lines are drawn, no one tops Jews for having differences.

In 2008 virtually all blacks voted for Obama. Jews -- about 50%. In the coming election, the Jewish percentage will drop, but, sadly, not to zero.

US Major Airlines Report Over $1 billion in 3Q Profit

THIRD Quarter profits -- the period that ended September 30, 2011.

That was then, when fuel prices were lower. Oil priced closer to $100 a barrel in much of the heavy travel time of the FOURTH Quarter.

IN any case, results in the Airline Industry are always Volatile. Always.

Every once in a while airlines report periods of healthy earnings. But most of the time they don't.

And during the good periods, the unions demand wage and benefit increases, while at the same time, the cost of new, fuel-efficient aircraft goes up.

Luckily, interest rates are low, which means airlines can finance planes at good rates -- but the low rates also lead to higher prices for the planes.

As always, the airline industry will expand and contract. The size of the industry will reflect the size of the population.

Alright, what American President said this?

“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”

See what I mean?

"If someone engages you and this makes them "empty and meaningless" do you even have enough intelligence to understand what that makes you?"


It makes me rational.

I will ask you the question again, and I will continue to ask it until I get an answer worth a damn.

Do you know of any happy well-balanced person who spends every single day of his life hurling abuse at people he doesn't know?

I don't, and clearly, you don't either.

So why are you pissing your life away like this?

What has caused you to be this way?


"Well obviously you don't or you wouldnt support the infantile views that you do, views that cannot withstand even the most minute scrutiny without your needing to fall back on crying your eyes out like a little baby screaming how; if but for the unfairness of the world you would be better, smarter, tougher, richer, but alas you have the right stuff but the "world" is against you."

I've never once said the world is against me. I've done very well for myself, I have an MBA, a great job, live in a beautiful 17th century home (I'm sure you've seen my blog), and a family to be proud of. My life is sweet.

"If you can't handle the world then get off, but do yourself a favor and stop being a whiney little bitch. No one respects a man who is nothing more than a bag full of whining and crying bullshit."

There you go again - projecting your misery on to others. I don;t cry and I don;t whine because I have nothing to whine about.

"Note; while a coherent thought might take you eons to gather this took a minute. So you can know that you arent an important part of anyones life at all, rather like a weak fart simply an afterthought and foul annoyance."

No actually it makes you non impactful, less then nothing and pretty much inconsequential the rest of your spiel is your usual useless and infantile physcoblog babble from the 70's. Get a grip pally you are way, way out of your depth and your techniques are laughingly at best described as affirmative action type, outdated, overused, overly simplistic to any but someone like you and just a plain joke.

Lastly in parting, no rage here at all I would say nice try but again you are really scraping the bottom of the intellect barrel if you can't even be original with your poor attempts at baiting.
