NB Commentary: This is the most ridiculous mind fuck they got going. Or is it?
This is probably going to be one of my most incensed rants of all times, well so far anyways. I just don’t get it and I have been trying to stay out of it. Colin and his flag protest is so old and so tired and so not an issue to me. Why? Because I have not saluted a flag in over 45 years. Why? Because why should I? What does saluting a flag prove? That I am an idol worshiper? That I do as I am told? That I believe the 2 verses that are sung? That I would rather go along with the crowd than stand out and be different? That even though the flag is supposed to represent “freedom” and all that bullshit that I believe it does?
What are national anthems? They are lies, they stir the hearts and minds of the people to think that there country is so great and so awesome that they will go on the battle field holding the ding dong piece of cloth and risk being shot to smithereens. Okay, so they don’t do that anymore, but they sure as hell put that flag on every ding dong bomb they make, every missile, every drone and every ground to air missile, not to mention all the other military might that they have invading the land and sea. So what does the flag really mean….? It means imperialism and the right to be “imperialistic” world wide. Hell, these folks had the nerve to plant that piece of striped cloth on the moon for crying out loud. The moon?? The Moon?? To say what, to mean what, to do what??? How nonsensical is it to plant a flag on the moon to say, my ass was there and don’t you forget it!
Of course, they also say there’s no wind up there and so having it on the moon, well it could be there forever right? My question is, are there any other flags on the moon? And if so why?
Folks rattle on and on about the constitutional right of an individual to protest, yet the police have the right to tell you to take your ass and your protest somewhere else if they deem it necessary to do so or that you are “disturbing” the peace. And it ain’t about color, though I would like to throw in the race card as well. But if anyone saw what happened to the “Occupy WallStreet” folks they would know that it ain’t about color.
It’s all about control. Control the narrative = mainstream media, Control your behavior = laws, Control your independence = Police.
So, I just recently found out what the last verse of the song was. Why am I not surprised. Seriously, did they really stop singing that part because the song was too long or was it too embarrassing to sing it? And I wonder how many folks of all colors would sing it anyways if it was part of the program. Don’t you ever wonder about that? Like who were these people who wrote songs like “Save a Wretch Like Me” turn abolitionists. Were they really all that or were they too a part of controlled opposition, cause all we got is the Civil War, thousands dead and Jim Crow.
I fail to see the honor or the humor in pledging allegiance to a flag, that has no real value in the real scheme of things and instead has been a symbol of American Empire. Check it out. We have to revere it, honor it, handle it in a certain way, march with it hung a certain way, fold it a certain way, and at one time it was a crime to even wear anything that had the flag on it. Now folks want to protest, but due they put down their beers at home when the anthem is played? Do they stop smacking on their hot dogs in the bleachers at the games? Do the fans even care about the anthem or even know the words to the first two verses?
These anthems are marching orders, they are incantations and are mind control to rally the masses around some symbol without having them realize or even care what the symbol means. Why do countries have flags?? What does it do for their self esteem? And we all know that some of the most ruthless countries in the world, including the US are the biggest flag wavers.
Actually, pledging to a flag is a form of idol worship, and this form of idol worship should not be taken lightly.
I did not want to get into this debate, but when I saw that our illustrious President got into it, I knew straight up that this was a “MIND FUCK”. What is a Mind Fuck, it’s propaganda, pure and simple. Here we now have a raging debate about a piece of cloth that most folks realize that it does not live up to the so called standards that it purports, that is, the country behind the flag has been letting its people down across the board, but alas they give the people this flag to pledge to and to quiet them down, cause they should not even think about how they are being brain washed into believing a lie.
This thing is so comical, I laughed all day as it has monopolized the twitterverse, instagram and Facebook. The memes were hysterical. But, even though folks are making fun and some aren’t taking it seriously they are still paying attention to it and to him and making all kinds of videos etc. He and his propaganda is trending now, and like that madness with Beyoncé, folks are equating this to some kind of radical black power statement. “Power to the People,” “Black Power,” “I’m Black and I’m Proud” and the latest of him joining the Nation of Islam??
Uh oh, that fro gone have to go!! But I digress.
Then the President weighed in on it.
Back in the day, we would call a person like him “shady”, and I call him “Slim Shady” and let me tell you why.
He is always throwing shade. He never ceases to amaze me how he throws shade like he is the star athlete on the Shades Basketball team. His throwing shade in this situation was all I could bare in avoiding this topic in my blogs. I really did not want to get caught up in it. I know it is straight bull shit and the masses are being manipulated by this guy who wore an Afro just to show off his protest.
Back to Obama, I mean “Slim Shady”. So, here we have the leader of the so called “free world”, the very man who wants to gather up the American’s guns say that Kaepernick has the right to sit down. Of course he has the right to sit down. He better not stand up!!
And how they call this taking a stand is unreal for me. Of course later he comes out giving his millions away, but what did he do before he had millions, what did he do before he was chosen to be the star of the “gossip mainstream media”?
But again, that is not what got me ranting… What got me ranting is that here we have the Willie Lynch syndrome taking wings again. Here we have one “light-skinned brother, standing up for another light skinned brother.” Don’t get me wrong, we all black if you ask me and I ain’t about that color stuff, but of all the times that Obama could have stood up for the rights of Black folks, he stands for the right of this brother to sit down because it’s his constitutional right, and yet if that brother said he wanted to own a gun, especially a high powered military grade rifle, Obama would be quick to NOT SITE his constitutional right, but would ask had he had his head examine. Do you see what I mean? It’s the hypocrisy of it all. On one hand you have rights on the other hand you have none. So why throw the Constitution in there on a day when you wanna speak out for your bi-racial brother but not throw it out there for those folks who want their guns. In fact, why haven’t you spoken out about police brutality that has been waged clearly against black men and women of all shades? What about their needs to be represented? Instead you quietly write into law a executive order to protect police, a Blue Lives Matter Bill of sorts.
How is it that you can be so smug about Blue Lives and militarize them to the hilt when you know those Blue lives are brutalizing Black Lives. Where do you start with the Constitution and where do you stop??
And that my friends is what has me writing like a bangy chicken over here because hypocrisy boils my blood. The whole do what I say and not what I do or better yet, listen to what I say and ignore what I do.
African Americans have seen the 1st Black President disappoint them over and over and over again. Ignore their issues, put band-aide on cancer (ObamaCare) cry over the deaths of little white children and give lip service to Trayvon Martin while he meanwhile ignores the homeless, even the veterans, and the poor in this country, who by the way are predominately black folks.
When he first came into “power” and he said he would not address the Bush Administration war crimes, I knew then he was a shoe-in for the oligarchy, the bankers, the power elite. I knew then that he was a puppet and all them crying black folks who prayed over him and laid their hands on his head and all that, that he would not and will not and has not come up to the plate for African Americans. He, like Kaeperkick only black when they want to make a point or when they are being “used” to make a point other than that… the are brothers of the cloth.. The biracial cloth, they can identify with the fact that, yeah, but being biracial don’t give you no props in this racist country. Being a house “N” don’t exempt you from being a “N” no matter what, cause Willie Lynch is alive in well in all of the US system and his impact can be felt far and wide.
Willie Lynch focused on how to subdue slaves by dividing them and conquering them or controlling them, and whether his was real or not, his method prevails to this day. It hits African people hard as they fight among themselves, distrusting each other and especially having issues with those “high yella” ones who thing cause they got the massah’s blood and live in the massah’s house and got more of the massah’s money that they are better than the rest of us, until the massah puts his foot so high up that the “high yella’s” can’t speak, that they realize that racism hasn’t died, we are not post racial, we are living in the belly of Racism/White Supremacy.
My message and final comment is, it takes more than sitting down and wearing an Afro to fight for the rights of African people to live in peace and not be fearful of being pulled over on a routine traffic stop. But I am grateful that he did it and I hope he continues to hold on to his principles until he sees major change, not window dressings, not pats on the back or on the head, not promises, but real change.
Besides, saluting a flag is the most ridiculous thing a person can do as far as I’m concerned, and since this is my blog, I can say that!!
I just keep shaking my head as the masses are played like a fiddle cause dude came back and knelt for the soldiers. Huh? How does “support the troops” motto play into this? Aren’t they being brutalized by the same system that brutalizes Black folks? Aren’t they force to salute a tyrannical regime? Shouldn’t all the soldiers drop their guns and fight no more for this charade? So yeah, They got us, trending on another trend. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
