Ignorance is not bliss. It is the certain foundation for disaster.
Notwithstanding the corporate media manipulated, euphorically misguided, color-conscious support of Barack Obama on the part of so many Black people and other people of color; those who are the most insidious at cleverly and effectively perpetuating ongoing economic disenfranchisement, corporate plutocracy, U.S. wars, extreme environmental degradation & destruction and racism are, in fact, the White liberals, the so-called ‘progressives,’ and the phony left in the United States. After a year and a half of the Obama / Biden / Rahm Emanuel regime’s having continued and expanded upon the policies of George W. Bush in all but name; these liberals, so-called progressives, and the phony left continue to be complicit in their die-hard support of Barack Obama. This is not mere coincidence. It is by conscious design.
Instead of politically educating and seriously organizing for real systemic change, these people chatter on incessantly about the activities of the right-wing, while studiously ignoring the fact that Barack Obama is the right wing - only a sneakier and more articulate version of it. They are complicit in their egregious silence and support of the corporate / military Obama / Biden / Rahm Emanuel regime. Their complicity facilitates the right-wing and the extreme right-wing.
Even as the contradictions of blood-sucking national and global capitalism continue to manifest themselves, with everyday Black, Brown, White, Red, and Yellow peoples as its targets and victims; these fake progressives, et al, bury their heads in the sand. Even as the human rights and the hopes and dreams of everyday people nationally and globally are systematically eviscerated by this articulate, insipid conjurer, Barack Obama, they seek to ignore or defend the indefensible.

Silence is not golden, and ignorance is not bliss! The actual scoundrels are those who cling to delusion and who knew and know better!
The blue pill of illusion from the corporate / military Obama Matrix has thus far managed to silence and neutralize many Black and poor people of all colors, but this will not continue forever, as the severe, biting, and inevitable vampiric contradictions of global corporate capitalism ravage the peoples of this nation and planet. Patience is a revolutionary virtue. Revolutionary patience however, does not mean being lethargic or inactive. It simply means that we must prepare for the coming conflicts. And indeed, they have already begun.
What many either ignored or forgot is the time tested adage with reference to this sleazy, blood-sucking U.S. system, that accurately says, “America Is Like A Melting Pot - The People At The Bottom Get Burned And The Scum Floats To The Top.”
We must be critical thinkers, and act accordingly. We must educate, agitate, and organize on the local and national levels. The only change that “we can believe in” is complete systemic change brought about by the no nonsense work of everyday people.
Onward my sisters and brothers! Onward!
