A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
Obama Vs Putin: The President Lacks The Angry White Man’s Anger. . . And That Angers them.
Obama vs Putin . . . this standoff is slightly-more complicated and complex than it appears, more than merely a crumbling empire pitted against an collapsing empire. . . beyond a cultural conflict; this is a vintage Heavyweight battle hand-crafted for MTV’s old celebrity claymation bouts – two bobbleheads battling for who’s got hold the claim to fame for the biggest penis on the globe; the Mary Jane lovin’ half Black college professor, “Cool Breeze,” or the nasty little Napoleonic KBG/SS Assassin . . . .
Good versus Evil . . . ? Black Vs. White? Same thing uh?
In this corner of the world . . . a classic analytical gentleman Boxer in Obama, on his bicycle, movin’, stickin’, jabbin’ – scoring, seldom being bullied into a corner . . . going against a cocky caged pitbull bar-room brawler – a “big” little-man with a “little man” complex.
Look at it as Muhammad Ali vs any Great White Hope – either of the Quary brothers, Great Britain’s Henry Cooper . . . Say even Sugar Ray, the “Original 1957” Sugar going against Jake Lamotta . . .
But perhaps the most interesting aspect of this bout are the political spectators and bystanders who you’ve got on the sidelines commenting, playing Monday-morning emperor . . your Republican TEA Party Warhawks – “Captain Hindsight n’ Major Obvious” doing all this moanin’’, groanin’, bitchin’ and complainin’’ talking about how Obama ought to be, if not readying nuclear missiles, at least talkin’ bout Putin’s momma, playing the political dozens instead of taking the hi’ road . . .
Yes, that’s right, with Obama being a “Officer and a Gentleman,” and not a high-strung Redneck . . . this. is infuriating the good ol Boys – from John “Rifleman” McCain to Rand Paul and Shawn Hannity. They want Obama to think n’ react as they would . . . like a angry, mean, hostile and paranoid White men would . . . “overreact” and attack anything which moves. Shoot first, think about it day-after-tomorrow.
Listen to McCain; “Crimea has exposed the disturbing lack of realism that has characterized our foreign policy under President Obama. It is this worldview, or lack of one, that must change.”
Obama’s administration, McCain wrote, supports the perception that the U.S. can “pull back from the world at little cost to our interests and values. This has fed a perception that the United States is weak, and to people like Mr. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, weakness is provocative.”
Mitt Romney blamed President Obama in naivete and inability to anticipate the actions of Russia in the ”There is no doubt that the ingenuity of the President on Russia and his inability to understand Russian aspirations, led to a series of foreign policy problems we are facing,”
They want Obama to ‘think like” General George A. Armstrong, but instead the President thinks more akin to Chiefs Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull . . . can you get to that?
Remember 1960’s TV, Big Valley . .. “The Barkley’s’, just think about it – the “Right” can best be best-represented by ‘Nick” – while Obama is “Jarrod,” reasonable, charming a lawyer. Or, if you were a Bonanza fan – The GOP ‘s posterboy is ‘Little Joe” . . not “Adam,” who was obviously a Democrat.
“Hoss n’ Heath’ are Moderates . . . Independents?
Obama will outmaneuver Putin, economically and mentally – go from playing “rope-a-Russia- dope” to bobbin’ n’ weavin’, get on his bike, make Putin have to geographically and logistically cover the entire four-corners of the globe , the President will stick n’ jab, out-point Putin in the world-wide court-of-public opinion, never allow the “Little Red Emperor” to launch that big Russian bomb . . .
See, what the “Right” embodies is Pete Rose, Jimmy Connor, Bill Laimbeer, Bill Romanowski , Jack Lambert, Danny Ainge – great gladiators, nonetheless assholes; mean, nasty, bulls in a fine china shop types . . . Richie Incognito and Tom Cousins.
Here you go . . you may not dig this my Caucasian reader, but dig this; with no personal disrespect for the great Chicago Bear barbarian, Dick Butkus – but that “enforcer/punisher” type maniacal bully – that’s how White men, “real men” “real Americans” relate-to and seek-to imitate and employ this mentality themselves.
As a WASP culture I’d have to conclude the WASP mindset tends-to think along these lines, it’s a Nordic-Viking/Scottish/Irish Redneck/Aryan/Cowboy cultural thing . . . I don’t know? Nevertheless that’s how “these people” see it. I think it speaks to the popularity of Ultimate fighting, the NHL, Pro-wrestling/ Redneck Reality Shows and school shootings . . . . Blend it up all together and you’ve got one angry, pissed off White man.
Think Rush Limbaugh and Tom Cruz . . . .
The overreaction the GOTP desire from this President reflects the traditional American mindset which got the US into Korea, Vietnam, South America, and the Arab World . . . and present-day “Conservative” perspectives. It’s the snowman calling the snowball “White “. . . The bloodshed Republicans are willing to have someone else’s child spill mirrors an arrogant attitude and perverted empirical perspective of the world.
These Redneck frat boys want to pitch a tantrum in the middle-of-the-living room . . . with all the family over the house, in-laws n’ all. This is the spoiled brat “screw the world “mentality on display.
Please note; most of the President’s punk-ass warhawk critics dodged the bloodshed-filled conflicts of their era. . . like Big George Bush n’ Little Dick Cheney.
Recall how Pat Buchanan and the ‘good ol’ boys” wanted President Obama to disrespect the late Hugo Chavez and even the whole “Bowing” issue with the Japanese . . . talk about “arrogant Americans.”
That ‘mentality” is partially why the American Empire enjoys the global reputation that it does . . . .
Would it be fair to say this President has a different opinion and perspective of “empire building” and “empire implosion” and the role the American empire ought play in “policing the globe.’ This entanglement is the embodiment of a Gentleman versus a Caveman . . .with the neanderthals at ringside screaming for blood.
