Cornell West versus Ta-Nehisi Coates

Cornell West versus Ta-Nehisi Coates – Why Obama is not like Malcolm X

By Dark Politricks
Secular Talk

Ta-Nehisi Coates is the neoliberal face of the black freedom struggle, says Cornell West, progressive black elder of the liberal movement.

He doesn’t see Obama as any kind of shinning light for the black community, whereas Ta-Nehisi Coates says of him with genuine euphoria:

“As I watched Barack Obama’s star shoot across the political sky … I had never seen so many white people cheer on a black man who was neither an athlete nor an entertainer. And it seemed that they loved him for this, and I thought in those days … that they might love me too.”

He also compares him to the last black hero since Malcolm X, where he seems to have missed a few things that President Obama did whilst in office out of his admiration list. Things such as:

  • Increasing the wars the USA was in from 3 to 7 and who knows how many “off book” banana republics the CIA are trying to turn over at the moment.
  • Drone strikes increased allowing PS2 and Xbox generation kids, experts at shooting from the sky to play real life or death scenarios. Sat in a box in Las Vegas they control drones across the world and take out buildings and people who may or may not have any connection with whatever extremest force the Mossad/CIA have created to ensure that the DOD sends troops over to fight there.
  • The implementation of the NDAA which gives the POTUS god like powers and lets him kill even US citizens abroad or at home if he feels they are a threat to the country.
  • The increased surveillance state where scanners at airports show off genitalia to brain-dead FDA staff, or you may be lucky to get a pat down and an accidental finger slipped somewhere. Not nice for the kids to watch for sure. Are there are any studies out that have shown how many terrorist plots these scanners that can easily be bypassed have stopped?
  • The crack down on whistle-blowers and truth to power speakers. He may have let Chelsea Manning out of jail as his pardon present for leaving, but he was the one who put him there in the first place. The war crimes and torture committed by US troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and other places is a very long list. Videos put up on YouTube of burning Korans and soldiers pissing on dead bodies of people they had just killed, is not the kind of “freedom” that the rest of the world wants. The latest attempt is the Democratic Red Scare and the nonsensical call to label Dr Jill Stein a Russian Agent and ask her to appear before a committee at Congress. It will surely blow up in their faces when she uses cool clean logic to blast them out of the water with real policies that were not heard by the majority during the last election, and hopefully leaving a committee room full of red faces.
  • Allowing the CIA and NSA to do pretty much what they want, whilst selling arms to the most despotic regime on the face of the earth, Saudi Arabia. If one country needs to be taken out of the Middle East it’s the Saudi’s who are using their alliance with Israel and the USA to increase their battle with Iranian forces. Forces who have helped removed ISIS militants from Syria along with Kurds and Christians.
  • The let off of Wall St after their collapsing of the World Economy in 2008. He should have jailed at least some Banksters like Iceland did. Now out of office and collecting $500,000 payments for after dinner speeches, it looks to a lot of people that he is being paid back from the den of inequity he didn’t prosecute or crack down on after they gambled people’s wages and pensions away on the stock market.
  • The non prosecution of George W Bush and Dick Cheney for war crimes including a preemptive war on Iraq (outlawed by US judges as the worst crime a country could commit against another after WWII at Nuremberg), the torture of enemy soldiers at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib many who were just people picked up by the Northern Alliance and sold to US troops who had nothing to say, nothing to admit and no part played in any anti-US battles. Remember the Taliban are mostly the name we have given the people who already lived in the area we attacked illegally. The Afghani’s asked for evidence of bin-Laden’s guilt twice and were denied it, as well as offering to hand him over for a fair trial also denied by US HQ. Just imagine if the Chinese invaded the USA. They would be calling all those 2nd amendment tin can shooters a similar name.
  • There are many many more incidences which I could mention but we could go on all night.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
