Morgan Freeman Needs To Make Up His Mind

Morgan_Freeman,_2006

Actor Morgan Freeman just cannot get his story straight! One has to wonder if the actor, now 75-years-old, is getting a bit senile in his later years, or if it’s another case of simple race-baiting.

In September of 2011, Mr. Freeman accused the Tea Party of being racist, saying they were out to get Barack Obama because he’s black. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Mr. Freeman stated:

“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.'”

Now, less than a year later, Mr. Freeman is arguing that Barack Obama is not America’s first black president because his mom was white.

“First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him … they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America. There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president — he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”

However, Mr. Freeman very well may be wrong on his newest claim, that Barack Obama is “America’s first mixed-race president.”

While none of these claims have been verified, according to Wikipedia, there are other possibilities for “America’s first mixed-race president”. Of those possibilities are:

  • Thomas Jefferson- it is said that his mother, Jane Randolph Jefferson, was of mixed-race ancestry.
  • Andrew Jackson- it is claimed that his father was a “light-skinned slave.”
  • Abraham Lincoln- it was claimed that hiss mother, Nancy Hanks, was of African descent.
  • Warren G. Harding- was “accused” of having African ancestry by William Estabrook Chancellor, one of his “racist” political opponents
  • Calvin Coolidge- it was claimed that his mother, Victoria Moor, was of a mixed-race family
  • Dwight D. Eisenhower- it was said that his father was of mixed blood from Africa, and his mother was mulatto

The difference in these examples and Barack Obama is that it is proven that Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was white. However, we do not know with certainty that none of the above examples are true. Therefore, it cannot be said with certainty that Barack Obama is “America’s first mixed-race president.” We just do not know that to be an absolute fact.

What we do know as fact is that Martin Luther King, Jr. said:

“I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Morgan Freeman, Van Jones, Barack Obama, and all the other race-baiters are spitting on the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. every time they bring Barack Obama’s race into the argument. These are the people that continue to judge a man by the color of his skin, rather than the content of his character. Otherwise, Allen West, Herman Cain, or any other Conservative black man would be given the same respect they tout for Barack Obama.

Now that Morgan Freeman doesn’t accept the fact that Barack Obama is America’s first black president, we will have to try for someone like Allen West. Now there’s a candidate Conservatives can support with pride!

America’s Race Issue

 

The race issue is not new to America, but in recent years it has been used as a tool to divide us. We all know that there are groups in our nation that are truly racist, but that label does not apply to the majority of Americans.

Some of the more recent events to bring race back into the lime light is the recent accusation by Morgan Freeman that the Tea Party is racist; and Obama calling Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain an Oreo. The Democrats and their liberal backers continuously try to label any threat to their agenda as racist.

Mr. Freeman needs to quietly attend a Tea Party gathering and meet the people he accuses of being racist and learn what color they go by. He needs to get to know the many Tea Party members that come from many different races and backgrounds. What about these members that he calls racist that are black? Are they prejudice against their own race? Mr. Freeman, we will let you in on the great color secret of the Tea Party: the colors are red white and blue.

It would seem that Obama is under the impression that Cain has a soft, sweet center. Again they forget the red and blue. Of course, Oreos are on most American’s list of favorite treats- and what a treat it would be to see Cain take over the oval office!

Oreo from the racial view normally means a person that is half black and half white. Obama used Oreo to say that Cain is nothing more than a “white man” in black skin. Wouldn’t this be considered the pot calling the kettle black?

What makes a black mans beliefs different than that of a white man? Just because one’s skin is darker or lighter than another does not mean they cannot share the same beliefs. I know and have many other friends of different races than my own that share most of my beliefs. The common bond is the belief of conservative values andor that America is still a Christian nation no matter what Obama and the liberals say.

The color of a person’s skin does not mean that they are limited to what they can believe. That holds no truer than here in the United States of America, where each of us have the right and freedom to choose what we believe. Isn’t it the left that supposedly condemns the stereotyping of any group? The Tea Party has been stereotyped and labeled ever since we have started to band together and stand up for our beliefs.

For Herman Cain and anyone of the Tea Party that has taken offense to the remarks from the liberals, just remember: they attack us because they have realized that we are here to take our nation back and we are the ones who will keep their socialist dreams from coming true.



 

What Does Morgan Freeman Think Of Herman Cain?

On the same weekend that Morgan Freeman was saying the Tea Party is “racist” and that they want to “get the black man out of here”, Tea Party voters in Florida were voting for a black man.  I think the real “problem” is that they were not voting for the black man that Morgan Freeman wanted them to.

Sadly, this is what Liberals do.  They will try to discredit and ruin the lives of fellow citizens just to win a game.  Everyone is a pawn or a useful idiot to them.  In my mind, their disregard for the well being of their fellow man is on par with the mentality that goes behind human trafficking.  But, I digress…  Here is a video I made summing up my thoughts on Morgan Freeman’s cruel and inaccurate charges.  I hope he sees it.  Better yet, I hope he apologizes for demonizing people that don’t agree with him.  I won’t hold my breath.

In happier news, congratulations, Herman Cain, for winning the P5 straw poll in Florida last weekend.  You truly had  a breakout week in Florida to include your inspiring performance at the Google/Fox News debate.  We salute you.

 

Tea Party Only Half-Racist

If we are to take the preposterous stance promulgated by leftists like Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton and now, Morgan Freeman, that anyone who opposes President Obama’s policies and ambitions is doing so solely on race, then let’s make sure we are being accurate – The Tea Party can only be half-racist, because Barack Obama is only half-black.

His mother is Caucasian and therefore Obama is technically the first “half-black” President.  The first Fully-black President is yet to be elected.  So, by definition, those who oppose Obama can only be “half-racist”.

Let’s apply this on a larger scale.  Up until the 2008 election, according to the logic (or lack thereof) supplied by the race baiters, everyone who ever voted in a presidential election from 1789 on would have to be classified as racist, for they did not vote for the black candidate.  Of course, most would raise the fact that up until 2008, no minority (or half-minority) candidate had ever been selected as a nominee of a major political party, but why let pesky things like facts get in our way now?  Every Democrat who voted in the 1988 presidential primaries, and did not vote for Jesse Jackson must have been a racist.  For that matter, those who voted for Michael Dukakis in the general election should also be considered residual racists.  All Kerry supporters in 2004 are also guilty of racism – they didn’t vote for Al Sharpton.

It could even be said that supporters of Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008 are at least half-racist themselves.  You see, when given a choice between Obama and the fully black Cynthia McKinney, who was the Green Party nominee in ’08, they went with the half-white guy.

Rush Limbaugh has a phrase – demonstrate absurdity by being absurd.  For those who have had their funny bones surgically removed (I like to call them Liberals), you may need to look up the meaning of a joke – a story with a humorous climax. Reading an article like this might make a sane person exclaim, “half-this, half-that?  What’s the difference??!!” – EXACTLY!!

I am not considered to be a minority by conventional means, but I can imagine that those who TRULY had to endure discrimination and condescension based on the melanin content of their skin would be pretty upset when charges of racism are thrown around in such a cavalier manner.  It desecrates their sacrifices and it minimizes their struggles.  And… it’s just flat down untrue.

A wise man once said that he had a dream that, “my grandchildren will be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  Electing a man of color was indeed a significant step for America, but that wise man’s dream will not come to pass until we elect someone President for one reason and one reason only – they are the best candidate for the job.

A Hero's Response to Morgan Freeman

Emery McClendon, husband, father, retired Air Force, Christian, amateur radio guy & Tea Party activist

While the majority of the media focuses on talking heads and high profile political types when it comes to responses to Morgan Freeman’s recent accusation that the Tea Party is racist, one Tea Party activist has a unique perspective.

Emery McClendon, Tea Party Organizer, Air Force retiree and regular guy with a 9 to 5 job in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, has a lot to say about those allegations.

“My initial reaction was ‘What movie is coming out? Is he trying to get attention?'” says McClendon. “The motivation is, I think, to use this as a publicity stunt. It’s a complete reversal from his previous statements on ABC.”

The previous statements McClendon is referring to are from an interview with Mike Wallace of ABC in which Freeman explains the way to eliminate racism is to stop talking about it. He also thinks that Black History Month is “ridiculous” and renders Wallace speechless when Freeman asks him about white history month.

“I’m going to stop calling you a white man and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man,” Freeman says in the 60 Minutes interview.

Freeman’s latest film, Dolphin Tale, was just released this month.

McClendon began his activism with the Tea Party in 2009 following the Rick Santelli rant about housing subsidies. McClendon saw an opportunity to get involved in framing the future of America and began work assembling the largest gathering at the courthouse square that Ft. Wayne had ever seen. More than 1,000 people from the Allen County and surrounding areas came to hear multiple speakers, experience patriotic comaraderie and protest excessive spending and overreach by the government.

McClendon now travels the country encouraging others to join the Tea Party movement.

When asked, “at the hundreds of events you’ve attended with Tea Party activists, how many instances of racism have you experienced?” McClendon wastes no time with his answer. “Absolutely zero.”

“For all the racist comments [from the media, politicians and Hollywood] to come out, I think it’s fear. Fear from the Congressional Black Caucus, fear from the establishment types, etc.,” says McClendon. “They don’t know what to do with this movement. The tea party came on strong and happened fast so they’re afraid of it.”

McClendon also thinks that many of those who are accusing the Tea Party of racism have never been to a Tea Party event. It irritates him that so many people on television who have never even been to a Tea Party rally are making racist accusations without doing any investigating on their own.

“People want to know what the Tea Party is really all about. They should at least take the time to go to at least one event and see what they don’t see on TV. I’ve witnessed firsthand how attending just one event can change opinions.”

To learn more about Emery McClendon and hear him speak at an upcoming event, you can simply Google his name for hundreds of hits or follow him on Twitter, www.twitter.com/kb9ibw which references his amateur radio handle. He is also an organizer for Ft. Wayne 9-12 project, featured on MSNBC’s “Faces of the Tea Party” and the recipient of Americans For Prosperity’s Activist of the Year Award.
