Fox News Presents: Barack Obama's Hip-Hop Jamoree!
"Obama's Hip-Hop BBQ Didn't Create Jobs"
That was on the front page of Fox News' website today. That is not a joke-- that was the front page story. And that is the only mention of the word "jobs" on the entire front page. I take that back-- they DO mention jobs a second time. It's one lonely quote from Jay Carney that says "The White House doesn't create jobs." I'll get to that momentarily.
Leave to Fox News to take anything that President Obama does, and make it into a "black" thing. I'm surprised they didn't just call this "Blackie Blackerson Blacks it Up Black!"
This is all in tandem with the job's report that was released today, which wasn't horrible...but it didn't set the world on fire either. Last month, there were 117,000 new jobs added to the economy, dropping the unemployment rate from 9.2 to 9.1 percent. Again, not great...but it's something. All of this still doesn't mean that the economy is growing at all. It's really painful for an economy that relies on consumers, when employers in certain sectors just are not hiring. And that's the key there-- CERTAIN SECTORS. I work in the advertising industry, and there plenty of jobs available. If you're a designer, or a programmer, or a project manager, you have tons of options. These are very marketable skills, but not something that all people can do.
It's probably safe to say that the bulk of job seekers out there are people that work in manufacturing-- assembling products, shipping products...factory workers. Since many American companies are reticent to hire because of fears of either rising taxes or health care costs (things they don't worry about when they employ people over seas), there are barely any jobs being created in the private sector. Which means that the government should step in to help pick up the slack. But Republicans won't allow that. So, we get a circle jerk involving people not willing to do anything to help Americans get jobs on either side of the equation; they are getting screwed by the public and private sector at the same time!
People at Fox News are not going to look at these facts. You can't fit that kind of information into a pithy headline. So they opt for "Blackie" bullshit. I mean seriously, look at that front page. Or, if you have the time, just look at it here:
POLITICO EXCLUSIVE -- The President’s private 50th birthday bash, not listed on his public schedule: His gift to the press corps was a travel/photo lid shortly after 4 p.m., prompting what pooler Julie Mason called “general cheering in WH workspace.” An hour later, the party started…
--… with dinner in the Rose Garden, accompanied by “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band. Then the First Lady and his daughters presented POTUS with a cake, and everyone moved into the East Room for performances that included R&B singer Ledisi, and Herbie Hancock. Stevie Wonder came up at the end and sang a medley ending in “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.” DJ Cassidy played Motown, hip hop, and ’70s and ’80s R&B.
--The president asked everyone to dance -- and they did!
--DINNER: BBQ chicken, ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta, salad.
--DESSERT: apple, peach, huckleberry and cherry pies; chocolate cake.
--GUESTS: Al Sharpton, Patrick Gaspard, UBS Investment Bank President Robert Wolf, FCC Chair Julius Genachowski, Leader Nancy and Paul Pelosi, Secretary Tim Geithner, Secretary Arne Duncan, U.S. Trade Rep. Ron Kirk, Secretary Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Rep./DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Virginia Gov. and DNC Chair Tim Kaine, Anita Dunn and Bob Bauer, Robert Gibbs, David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Valerie Jarrett, Michael Strautmanis, Pete Rouse, Bill Daley, Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, Denis McDonough, John Brennan, Rahm Emanuel, Tina Tchen, White House chef Sam Kass, Julianna Smoot, Marty Nesbitt, Eric Whitaker, Linda Douglass, and many more.
I'm cutting it off here, because it just goes ON AND ON AND ON like this. They cite three news sources that discuss the party...and that's it.
To certain people, this just reads like a bunch of niggers and their nigger-loving friends dancing, and eating chicken and ribs, and listening to jungle music. Seriously, there is NO REASON why the President's 50TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION should be front page news on ANY reputable news organization's website. Turning 50 is a milestone in any normal human being's life. It's like turning 16, or 21-- it's a big deal to most people. I don't see how this is front page news, with the piss-poor job market being mentioned along with it. I don't remember Fox News bitching about George W. Bush playing golf while there were wars going on. Granted, he later took it upon himself to stop playing golf while kids were dying...big of him, huh? But I digress...
It's clear what Fox News is doing with this Obama hip-hop birthday bullshit. I mean, you look at that page there, and you see NO MENTION of jobs other than in that headline. It's just the menu and the guest list, and his insistence on people dancing...at a party. Wow, that's some dangerous black shit right there! And that's all this is-- make no mistake. It's race-baiting garbage. It's showing the Fox News audience how this guy is throwing "hip-hop" parties, while the economy and job market (a national catastrophe 10 years in the making) is falling apart. And they have the nerve to quote Jay Carney saying that the White House doesn't create jobs. Yeah, I thought the "job creators" created jobs! You know, the wealthy people that don't want Clinton-era taxes, or adequate health care for their employees...those people. You scoff at the idea of government interfering with the job market...then protect those that are supposed to create jobs, but don't want to contribute to the economy...and now, when Carney says exactly what all GOP people would normally agree with -- that the government should stay away from the work of the "job creators"-- you have issue with it. Is there one person with half a brain among the Fox News mouth-breathers?!
There is no news here. It's obnoxious. It's ignorant. It's sad. It's Fox News!
