Black Is Back Coalition Magnifies Grassroots Forces

The betrayals and predations of the Black Misleadership Class can be overcome by out-organizing them.“Our objective is to replace that misleadership, not just to complain about it,” said Omali Yeshitela, chairman of the Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations. Black is Back seeks to “provide the ability for all of these” grassroots organizations “to come together and to magnify their presence many times over,” said Yeshitela. The coalition recently held its national conference in Harlem.

Obama and the New Jim Crow

The Obama administration seems to believe it is immune from effective Black criticism.“It’s sad to see us pimped like that,”.“All of our suffering is rendered invisible because they know we will be highly protective of them.” The administration has “that kind of power, that kind of bully pulpit, but they can’t say a mumbling word about the New Jim Crow – and they’ve been in office for five years. That’s disgusting!” Dr. West spoke on the latest edition of Black Agenda TV.

Big Majority Of Americans Opposed To Defunding Obamacare

Republican leaders on Capitol Hill don't support the effort to defund Obamacare and, according to a new poll released Wednesday, neither do the American people.

The latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll showed that 57 percent of Americans disapprove of "cutting off funding as a way to stop some or all of the law from being put into place." Only 36 percent said they approve the idea. Kaiser has found consistent opposition to the proposal since 2011.

US Neocon Hawks Take Flight Over Syria
Architects and key backers of 2003 invasion of Iraq have some advice for the president as he presses for US attack on new Middle East country
In an echo of the tactics they used to promote U.S. intervention in the Balkans, Iraq and Libya, a familiar clutch of neo-conservatives published a letter Tuesday urging President Barack Obama to go far beyond limited military strikes against Syria in retaliation for its government’s alleged use last week of chemical weapons that reportedly killed hundreds of people.
Signed by 66 former government officials and “foreign policy experts”– almost all of them strongly pro-Israel neo-conservatives – the letter, which was released by the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), called for Washington “and other willing nations [to] consider direct military strikes against the pillars of the Assad regime” as part of more ambitious strategy to support “moderate” Syrian rebels and dissuade Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

so not attacking Syria will make Iran think it can keep developing nuclear weapons??
you traitorous dupe! and you must be anti-Semitic!
so why do you hate Israel? closet member of the Muslim Brotherhood?
O'bama painted himself into a black corner--he is supporting weapons to Al Qaeda. O'bama will blow up a couple of camels and a couple of tents--just like Clinton. There is no game plan ---- O'bama wants out of the corner.

Back to the issue and current events....

The war in Syria is between the pro-Iranian Assad government (Shi'ite) and an invading Al Qaeda jihad (Suni).
The winner of that war will have chemical weapons facilities and stores.
Who here wants Al Qaeda to have chemical weapons to use in their terrorist attacks here?

Russia will give Assad the most modern anti-ship missile systems they have. These systems are just as good as ours. It is a certainty US ships will be hit by these missiles. It is a certainty US sailors will be killed. It is likely US ships will be sunk. It is certain the aircraft carrier will be the most significant target, and these missiles are capable of sinking it.

Who here wants perhaps thousands of US sailors killed just so Obama can help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons?

If we have to become involved, we should kill the existing enemy of the United States. We should help Assad kill the invading Al Qaeda Suni jihad army.

Otherwise, there should be no US involvement.

The commemoration of the March on Washington has been ruined. President Obama, the global assassin, protector of Wall Street, and reigning Great Mass Incarcerator, will star in the production on the National Mall.“Dr. Martin Luther King serves as a mere prop in the ceremony.” In their embrace of Power, the organizers have desecrated the Black American legacy of struggle Proximity to Power has always been their Dream.”

For those who seek an independent Black politics that is faithful to the historical Black consensus for peace and social justice, the inclusion of President Barack Obama in the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington is a desecration. The ancestral sanctum is to be utterly defiled by the presence of the very personification of imperial savagery and a ballooning domestic police state.

Of course, the organizers of this monumental self-debasement – this obscene groveling at the feet of Power – see Obama’s participation as the ultimate testimony to Black progress. Proximity to Power has always been their Dream. Dr. Martin Luther King serves as a mere prop in the ceremony, which seeks to draw a straight line from the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, through the 1963 mass march, to the First Black President’s embrace of the 2013 commemoration – a kind of holy trinity.

For the Black Misleadership Class, the great social movement in which Dr. King played such a pivotal role was brought forth, not to confront Power, but to integrate it. President Obama is the perfect blending – the literal embodiment of Black Power, in the warped worldview of the 2013 organizers. Dr. King has no place in this abomination, except to mark the tolling of the bell on his dream to overcome the three evils inherent in imperial capitalism: racism, militarism and materialism.

Your Beckian links make me laugh.
Perhaps you would like to respond to the content of the post. Here it is again for your convenient reference. Please identify any statement that isn't accurate:

Just one example:
Before President Barack Obama departed for Israel earlier this year, he took time to consult with Mohamed Magid.
White House officials have praised Magid's organization, ISNA, as a pillar of the American-Muslim community.
We know from the Muslim Brotherhood's own documents that ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood front -- they say that explicitly in one of their 1991 secret memos. Internal Muslim Brotherhood documents, captured by the FBI, name ISNA as one of 29 American-Muslim organizations with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
They said their work in America is “a kind of grand jihad, in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.”
Obama is a key player in this “grand jihad”.
ISNA began in 1982 in Plainfield, Ind. A founding member, Sami al Arian, was convicted in a U.S. federal court of conspiring to support the terror group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Adurahman Alamoudi also worked closely with ISNA for years. He's currently serving a federal prison sentence for funding al Qaeda.
ISNA's founders were even given a tour of the White House in March 2013.
In short, Obama is part of the jihad, and is working toward the destruction of the evil United States.
Perhaps that explains why Iraq devolved into chaos and the Taliban are once again a threat in Afghanistan, and Al Qaeda went from hiding in caves to taking over countries since Obama was made president.

It is a funereal occasion.

“For those that spent much of the next 50 years jockeying for greater opportunities to join structures of power, there is no shame in hosting the nominal head of Empire at a great public ceremony.”

Not that the actors were so different in 1963. But, back then, the grasping Black classes had not yet been launched on the trajectory that would give them a stake in the imperial order. Their status was still aspirational. Years of tumult would unfold – and Dr. King’s assassination – before the system would deign to offer serious silver to the Judases in his entourage and the larger movement. For those that spent much of the next 50 years jockeying for greater opportunities to join structures of power – the “burning house” that Dr. King feared he was leading his people into – there is no shame in hosting the nominal head of Empire at a great public ceremony. Rather, such an event is the pinnacle of success – especially for folks that imagine they have a special, complexional relationship with His Highness.

It has been so long since the dissolution of the Black Freedom Movement, the pretenders to Black leadership have forgotten how to speak the language of struggle. Non-violent “direct action,” Dr. King’s preferred tactic to “create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue,” has degenerated to mean simply marching down a street on a sunny day.

The 1963 march was not an example of direct action – quite the opposite. The purpose was to gather as many people as possible for an orderly and “dignified” demonstration of the movement’s mass following and broad support – and then get them out of town by sundown, as promised to the powers-that-be. The last thing the organizers wanted was that a quarter million marchers create a “crisis” in the heart of Washington – a scenario that Dr. King hoped to organize in the summer of 1968, but was interrupted by an assassin.

“The pretenders to Black leadership have forgotten how to speak the language of struggle.”

The 1963 march was so accommodating to the Kennedy’s demand for orderliness, Malcolm X dubbed it the “Farce on Washington.”

“It ceased to be a black march; it ceased to be militant; it ceased to be angry; it ceased to be impatient,” said Malcolm.“In fact, it ceased to be a march. It became a picnic, an outing with a festive, circus-like atmosphere....”

It was also the biggest show of massed humanity in the history of the Nation’s Capitol – which certainly made the intended impression. But, accommodation with Power is not what created the movement that brought the throngs to Washington for the one-day “outing,” nor did strolling in the park carry that movement forward in the ensuing years of confrontation with power.

The 1963 March on Washington was sanitized by the organizers, themselves, whose goal was to impress the nation – including other Black people – with the size and the breadth of the forces the leaders could call on at that point in time. It did not seek confrontation on that day, although its immensity served as implicit warning that masses of people were deeply committed to social transformation, and might not always be so orderly.
