A MESSAGE TO STACEY ABRAMS

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree 

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY 


A MESSAGE TO STACEY ABRAMS 

 


Thank you, Ms. Abrams for all you're doing, and I want to thank you in advance for all you're destined to do, because I predict that you've got an illustrious future before you. Just seeing sisters like you and Joy Reid on the television screen represents the writing on the wall for Jim Crow. You represent his dying gasp, just as surely as Harriet Tubman symbolized the the  end of slavery, and you're going down in the annals of history in the very same illustrious way. These people don’t know it, but it’s Black women like you who are their most formidable foes, and you always have been.  

. 

So I'm really feeling you, because on a much smaller scale, I also dedicated my life to fighting bullies on behalf of the people - I only lost one battle in 20 years. And now my daughter, the President of her chapter of the California School Employees Association, and Son, a former federal agent, and now an investigator for the state of Arizona, is engaged in the same battle. So we closely identify with you.  
. 
The biggest case I ever won, I won because one quiet and unassuming sister summoned the courage to step forward while our brothers were cowering in the corner in fear over their own self-interests. And ironically, her courage served to improve their lives. But I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, because the very first time I laid eyes on you, that quiet and heroic sister came to mind. Your intelligent and quiet demeanor says it all. For you, it’s not about trying to become a superstar, it’s about moving our people forward. God bless you. 

.

HERE’S WHY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS IN A STATE OF HYSTERIA

. 

Conservatives have been in revolt mode ever since the election of Barack Obama. And Obama's success as President made the situation even worse. Trump's inability to measure up to President Obama made the situation intolerable for those who based their self-image on cultural superiority rather than personal accomplishment, because it contradicts the very foundation of White supremacy.  
 
It was Donald Trump's inability to compete with Obama that led to "The Big Lie", the insurrection, the growing attacks on non-Whites throughout the nation, and the over 361 voter suppression laws proposed by Republicans in 47 states. It's a simple matter of radicalized conservatives lashing out in fear and desperation over a demographically changing America.  
 
In the eyes of bigoted conservatives, Trump's inability to compete with Obama not only debunked their claim of White superiority, but constitutes the ultimate assault on the nation’s White supremacist tradition - and the fact that Trump lost the 2020 election to the former subordinate of Barack Obama only served to poured salt in the wound.

ODE TO THE BLACK WOMAN
.
ALL 19 SISTERS RUNNING FOR JUDGESHIPS IN TEXAS
WON THEIR RACES
.
In response to my assertion that Black women have always been the backbone of the Black culture, one brother responded by saying,
"So does this mean that the black woman is responsible for a good portion of the Ills of the black community? Checkmate."
.
No, good brother, there are many contributing factors to the dysfunction within the Black community, including racism, poor economic conditions, an underfunded public school system, and absentee Black fathers. If many of us had to depend on our fathers for our survival, a large number of us would have long since starved to death. Your perception of Black dysfunction has been forged by the White media.  The corporate media uses the most dysfunctional 10% of  Black people as a model to portray the entire Black community.  If White folks were portrayed as inaccurately as Black people, we'd think all White folks were barefoot Hillbillies.
.
So while some, like yourself, may want to attribute Black dysfunction to Black women, I think the majority of us credit Black women with enabling the Black culture to survive - and prosper - IN SPITE of the atrocious conditions that has been forced upon us. So I'd say your view on this issue has been corrupted by the media, is grossly slanted, and overly simplistic, just like the views of many in the White community.  In short, you're falsely profiling your own people
.



. "Jun 3, 2016 - Black women are now the most educated group in US, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Between 2009 and 2010, black women earned 68 per cent of associate's degrees, 66 per cent of bachelor's degrees, 71 per cent of master's degrees and 65 per cent of all …




"The percentage of black students attending college has increased from 10 per cent to 15 per cent from 1976 to 2012, while the percentage of white students fell from 84 to 60 per cent. By both race and gender, a higher percentage of black women (9.7 per cent) is enrolled in college than any other group, including Asian women (8.7 per cent), white women (7.1 per cent) and white men (6.1 per cent)."



.
ODE TO THE BLACK WOMAN
.
I have to scratch my head when I hear young
Brothers calling our sisters bitches and hoes;
the Black woman is our most precious asset.
Sister’s are the very womb of our culture,
and if it weren’t for her, we would have
long since been relegated to the
ash heap of history.
.
Sister’s have been standing by us
to help nurture us into adulthood
and reinforcing our manhood
for centuries.
.
When we were helpless,
hungry, and abandoned,
SHE WAS THERE . . .
to suffer with us,
and nurture us into manhood.
.
When we were beaten down
and told that we weren’t shit
by the White man,
SHE WAS THERE . . .
to nurse our wounds,
and assure us of our value.
.
When we ran the street
in a misguided attempt to seek our manhood,
SHE WAS THERE . . .
to rein us in,
and convince us that we were
more than our vision of ourselves.
.
And once we gained the wisdom
to become real men,
SHE WAS THERE . . .
to defined our manhood through
the image we saw reflected in her eyes.
.
So 
"THAT BITCH," 
and 
"THAT HOE,"
is our most precious
possession . . .
She's the ONLY thing of value we have
in this world,
and the only one who’s ever
given a damn about us -
and she didn't have to be
taught these things -
she was BORN that way,
 . 
and we’d be lost without her.
.
So wake up, damn fool!

BLACK FEMALE WEST POINT GRADUATES

SO
THIS IS
DEDICATED TO ALL 
OF THE BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMEN 
IN THIS WORLD 
WHO PUT UP WITH US 
SO SILENTLY, 
STAND BY US SO LOYALLY, 
AND LOVE 
OUR CRAZY ASSES 
SO PASSIONATELY 
AND 
SO UNCONDITIONALLY.
.
.
ON THE OTHERHAND,
THIS IS THE DUMB SHIT 
FAR TOO MANY OF OUR BROTHERS
ARE INTO

.
MY SWEET AND PRECIOUS BLACK SISTERS,
HOW DO YOU PUT UP WITH THIS DUMB SHIT?
I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT,
BUT I LOVE YOU 
FOR LOVING US ENOUGH 
TO SUFFER THROUGH  IT,
AND I THANK YOU FOR MY NEW
AND ENLIGHTENED LIFE.
I ALSO WANT TO THANK GOD 
FOR BLESSING US WITH YOU.
*
MAY GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU,
BECAUSE YOU'RE NOTHING LESS 
THAN SWEET,

THE REASON THIS REPUBLICAN IS CONFUSED: HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PARTY

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree 

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY 

 

THE REASON THIS REPUBLICAN IS CONFUSED: 

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PARTY 

. 



Michael, the reason you’re confused about what’s happened to your Republican Party is because you’ve been manipulated from the very start. The Republican Party has never been what it professed to be, but now it’s become the victim of its own manipulation.  
 

SEN. MITCH MCCONNEL'S
HOME STATE
The Republican Party is made up of three factions with confluent interests. The first faction is the rich, or what Alexander Hamilton referred to as the “wellborn”. They previously controlled the modern Republican Party for their own interests. The second faction is made up of White supremacist bigots who the first faction uses as their citizen army. The rich uses their hatred and anger to create division. The third faction is the mainstream conservatives like yourself that both the rich and White supremacist factions use to reinforce their number.
.
For decades 
they’ve been manipulating people like yourself into voting against your own interests by catering to your religious beliefs, patriotism, and the belief that you’re the defenders of “the American way”. The problem with that is, the established has brainwashed a large portion of the American people regarding what "the American way" entails. We've been taught, for example, that unfettered capitalism is the "American way," and "socialism" is un-
American. But the truth is, capitalism means to give priority to the  rich, and socialism is to give priority to the people. But the rich uses the fact that socialism has been tarnished over the years by it's abuse, to convince us that it's un-American to give priority to our own families.
.
So a huge part of conservative propaganda requires that they keep us blind. 
That’s why the Republican Party is anti-intellectual, and why you're currently confused. The Republican Party is dependent on catering to the emotions, so it’s totally dependent on blind adherence to conservative propaganda, or put another way, to total nonsense. The reason for that is simple - their totally contrived philosophy is so blatantly ridiculous that it can’t survive in an enlightened environment. 
.
Conservatives specialize in cutting our throats and then blaming our suffering on the class beneath us. That's how they keep us divided. That's also why they fought like hell for a trillion dollar tax cut for the rich, but now that President Biden wants to help the Average American they've rediscovered the "evil" of deficit spending. It's insane, and we have to be totally brainwashed to accept it.
 

RICH CONSERVATIVES

  

Conservatives have always been known for walking around with flag pins in their lapels and spewing their "bone-spur" brand of patriotism. Going all the way back to the very founding of this nation they’ve always used false patriotism and deception as weapons to promote their self-serving agenda to undermine the interests of the average American. As a result of that attitude, they have always been the most insidious enemies of American democracy. That’s why when our founding fathers speak of American enemies they insert the phrase, “Both foreign and domestic.” 

. 

As I've pointed out previously, when conservatives first arrived on these shores, they brought with them the European notion of class distinction. They have always suffered from the distinctly undemocratic attitude that the only inherent value of the average American is as servants to cater to the whims of the upper class. Alexander Hamilton, one of this nation’s conservative founding fathers, believed that the rich and "wellbornshould be given a permanent share in government. He said: 
. 
“All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and wellborn, the other the mass of the people…. The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge or determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share in government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second, and as they cannot receive any advantage by a change, they therefore will ever maintain good government.” 
. 
Hamilton supported a lifetime appointment of the President (after being selected by congress, instead of the people). Can you just imagine that, Donald Trump FOR LIFE!!!?  Obviously, Donald Trump could, and that’s what led to the Capitol insurrection. But the founding fathers were brighter than we are, so America dodged that bullet during the Federalist Convention that took place between May 14 and September 17, 1787. 
. 
Since most of the founding fathers came to America to escape the aristocratic class system in Europe, Hamilton’s desire to preserve the class system was resoundingly defeated in favor of an unfettered democracy, but that didn’t mean that people of Hamilton’s point of view would quietly go away. Instead, they became the conservative coalition, and lowered their profile as blatant aristocrats but continued to pursue their agenda by using their wealth, power, and various other strategies to divide the people to achieve their objective. That’s what we see todayThat accounts for why conservatives tend to be specialists in obstructionism and division, and why the American people ALWAYS suffer under conservative governance. And then came Donald Trump. 

 

DONALD TRUMP

 

Trump suffers from a pathological sense of entitlement. He’s never earned anything on his own merit in his entire life, that’s why he's so incompetent and intolerant of disloyalty. He's never had to actually earn anything in his life. His father simply gave him everything. Even when he wanted to go to college, he just paid someone to take the SAT exam for him, and his older sister did his homework. Then later, his father got a doctor to lie to get him out of the draft allowing him to avoid serving in the Vietnam War. As a result, Trump thinks that's the way life is supposed to work. He thinks he's "The chosen one", and the world is obligated to cater to his desires.  
. 

Then after his father died, and his gross incompetence sent him into bankruptcy and every American bank turned their backs on him, that's when Putin stepped in and took his father's place. That accounts for Trump's unwavering loyalty to Vladimir Putin. The Russians, literally, saved Trump from financial disaster - and they may still be propping him up to this day. That's undoubtedly why he's been so secretive about his financial records. Trump is such a braggart that if he didn't have something to hide, and if his business acumen made him look good instead of the incompetent illiterate that he is, he'd have his financial documents highlighted in strobe lights in Times Square. 
. 

So Putin knew that as a direct result of Trump always having the road paved for him throughout his life, he never had to develop the character, intellect, or fortitude that most of us are forced to develop just to survive. That made him a severely flawed individual, easily manipulated, and the perfect puppet.

.

The Guardian reported that Yuri Shvets, sent to Washington by the Soviet Union in the 1980s, was quoted in the book, American Kompromat, by journalist Craig Unger, that Trump came onto the Russian radar in 1977 when he married his first wife, Ivana Zelnickova, a Czech model. During that time, Trump became the target of a spying operation overseen by Czechoslovakia’s intelligence service in cooperation with the KGB." He went on to say, “Trump was the perfect target in a lot of ways: his vanity, narcissism made him a natural target to recruit. He was cultivated over a 40-year period, right up through his election.”

. 

So with Putin's help, Trump began to formulating “The Big Lie” months before the 2020 election, because even though he would never admit it, Trump fully recognized his shortcomings as President. But in spite of his incompetence, Trump was desperate to hold on to power, both because he was cognizant of the legal challenges that awaited him outside the White House gates, and also because his fragile ego was much too weak to tolerate a loss. A loss would validate everything that Trump had dedicated his life to hiding - that he's a fraud, a daddy's boy, and an incompetent wimp. But worst of all, it would mean that he couldn't standup to the former subordinate of that "uppity" Black man, Barack ObamaThat’s why Trump couldn't conjure up the class to attend President Joe Biden's inauguration, and even to this day, he’s still claiming that he won a landslide victory – and that’s in spite of over 60 (SIXTY!) losses in court before judges that he appointed, and his former attorney, Sidney Powell, admitting the claim of election fraud was a lie. 


"THE BIG LIE" 
PREDICTED EIGHT WEEKS 
BEFOR THE ELECTION

 

THE RISE OF THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS 

 

Just prior to his 2016 election Trump stumbled upon his White supremacist base, and they were his mirror image. They were also arrogant, narcissistic, and insecure, and they too had been  given their stature in society - not by wealth, but by virtue of their White skin - and both they, and Donald, were desperate to hold on to their life of entitlement by any means necessary - and neither wanted to ever be forced to compete on a level playing field. 

.

These people had been in revolt mode ever since the election of Barack Obama. And Obama's success as President angered them even more. Then Trump's inability to measure up to President Obama made the situation intolerable to them, because their self-image was based on their delusion of innate superiority rather than personal accomplishment, and Barack Obama's excellence contradicted the very foundation of White supremacy.  
. 

The fact is, Trump's inability to compete with Obama led to "The Big Lie", the insurrection, the growing attacks on non-Whites throughout the nation, and the over 361 voter suppression laws proposed by Republicans in 47 states. It's a simple matter of radicalized conservatives lashing out in fear and desperation. 
. 
In the eyes of bigoted conservatives, Trump's inability to compete with Obama was intolerable. It not only debunked their claim of White superiority, but it constituted the ultimate assault on the nation’s White supremacist tradition - and the fact that Trump lost the 2020 election to the former subordinate of Barack Obama only served to poured salt in the wound. 
.

So Donald Trump and his radicalized conservative followers formed an unshakable bond, because they were both the products of desperation, a sense of entitlement, and insecurity. Like Trump, as a direct result of society paving their way throughout life, they never had to develop the knowledge, competence, and common sense that most of us had to develop just to survive. That resulted in their becoming insecure, intellectually deprived, and highly flawed individuals just like Trump – and they knew it. So like Trump, their entire lives have been dedicated to desperately hiding their shortcomings, which accounts for their braggadocious and over-the-top personalities. So also like Trump, everything about them is a fraud. 
. 
So these diehard Trump supporters suffer from the very same insecurities and fear of the loss of entitlement that Trump does. And both Donald, and his followers, are desperate to avoid having to compete on a level playing field, because then, their many shortcomings would be revealed. Clear evidence of that insecurity is reflected in their chant that "You won't replace us."
.
As a result, Trump and his supporters have managed to take over the Republican Party from the rich due to their numbers, symbiotic relationship, and unshakable bond. And they’re both desperate to hold on to an undeserved stature in society, and willing to do anything - including staging a revolt against the United States government to do it. 

. 
Having to compete on a level playing field, and possibly not being able to measure up to non-Whites would be a fate worse than death for these people - Trump knew that for a fact, due to his experience with Barack Obama. So Trump and his followers have a common cause, to promote White supremacy, and while Trump is unwilling to give-up his own life (because he's a coward), he's more than willing to fight to his supporters' last breath in defense of their cause. That's what makes them so dangerous - Trump is ruthless, and his supporters are dumb. For that reason, it's absolutely necessary to indict Trump for inciting insurrection, and send him to prison for life. That's the only way we can send an unequivocal message to his cadre of idiots that this is America, so What you smell ain't cookin'.
