Please Tell Me This is Fake

Someone please tell me this isn’t real.  The more I talk to other people about Obama, the more I feel like I sound like a right wing whakjob.  Because this shit is the kind of thing that paranoid right-wing fantasies are made out of.


Only I worry this time it’s not a fantasy.  Looking at the writing on the walls that’s visible for clues, it would appear this is the 18th and Vine District in Kansas City, MO.  The tag on the video says an Urban Community Leadership Academy, and that the teacher has been suspended.

I point this out not because I think Obama’s campaign is going around training the brownshirts, but because I do not wish to elect anyone who inspires this kind of regimented and blind loyalty.  That is dangerous to our Republic.  Think what you want about McCain, but he’s a typical politician.  He’s an evil I know.  I don’t know who Barack Obama really is, but I do know the depths of hell to which this kind of loyalty leads.

UPDATE: Sadly, it’s real.  It was done before Obama was the nominee, and the school seems to be taking appropriate action.

  2. I think it is time for a post comparing primitive tribal instincts to political party affiliation. The right does it too, but not as much as the left. There was lots of violence by the left in the 2004 election and I suspect it’s going to get worse…

  3. I suppose this is the initial cadre for Bama’s “civilian defense force” which he is going to fund to the same level as US armed forces.

    And it would appear that the Dear Leader will be issuing the orders to these troops.

    Castro has his Young Communist League, Chavez has his equivalent, why should’t Bama? Call them the Bama Freikorps…Marx should have something appropriately inspiring them in their mission “to get into your face”.

  4. Wow. Now that, there, is some scary-assed shit.

    Welcome to the New World Order. Big Broth… uh, I mean, Barack Obama will be taking care of you, so try not to fret your little heads…

  5. If Obama gets elected, the ones who get sent out to confiscate our “semi-automatic assault guns” might look and/or sound something like this group in the video.

  6. This is the preview for things to come if Obama is elected.

    It also higlights a major aspect of this election. It is not fact driven. It’s not that facts don’t matter. It’s that people who need to hear then the most (those who still don’t know how far-left Obama really is) don’t get these facts from the media. They don’t go to the blogs like this, they don’t read long data rich threads, they don’t watch scary YouTube kids-singing videos. We keep going down in polls because people listen to the huge propaganda machine–and take that BS at face value. What we need is an arsenal of conversation changers. These attention grabbers that make an impact in 5 sec. And THEN those whose opinions still can be changed may start reading more. Obama’s side if excellent in this. They have pros working around the clock on all sorts of visuals that go straight to the emotions level, bypassing the logic. Just take a look at this or this to know what I’m talking about.

    Can you name a single memorable anti-Obama poster that speaks to the center-leaning Democratic voter? I can’t. And to expose who Obama really is we need some of that. With my blog and Facebook page I’ve started a new repository to fill this gap and hope it will take off and will be used. Your comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

  7. I am quite literally disturbed. I watched that video with this disgusted look on my face generated during the chanting of “ALPHA! OMEGA!”

    Alpha, Omega, indeed. This guy’s the effing Antichrist.


  8. You guys are completely losing your shit.

    That style of step chant shit is very popular with black fraternities, it’s got nothing to do with brownshirts or anything like that. And you seem to be looking only at the visuals and not paying attention to what they’re saying—which is essentially, because of Obama’s success, they feel empowered to be come engineers, architects, so on and so forth. Would we rather they feel inspired to be drug dealers or gang members?

    And I watched this yesterday when a right wing friend of mine linked to it by saying “The enemy is training,” and I seem to remember one part where they say they are going to be responsible members of their community. Once again, how does that make them the enemy? Or dangerous? I thought this is the sort of self-confidence and responsibility we wanted from inner city youths?

    What, may I ask, is the problem here? Am I missing something?

    Talk about Pants-Shitting Hysterics.

  9. I don’t think it’s paramilitary training, though without having the cultural context, it would appear that way to the uninitiated. I had no idea this was popular with black fraternities. I’m not sure that makes it better though.

  10. Yeah, it would appear that way to the uninitiated—but hell, look at us! And we get all pissy when people call us dangerous nuts.

    All I’m sayin is that nobody seems to have listened to the things those kids are saying, which are overwhelmingly positive, good things that we want more young black males to be saying and feeling. And yeah, it’s hard to understand some of what they’re saying, as they seem to be emphasizing volume and speed over enunciation, but I heard enough to realize that there was nothing negative about this display or the things they said (unless I missed something nefarious in there)?

    It’s this sort of thing:

    But instead of chanting about their frat, they’re chanting about being productive members of society. This is good, no?

  11. Yeah, it would appear that way to the uninitiated—but hell, look at us! And we get all pissy when people call us dangerous nuts.

    I don’t disagree, and I’ve taken heat from a lot of gun rights activists for pointing out a lot our own shit doesn’t help us either.

    Actually I wasn’t aware of this cultural context. But what’s with the fatigues? In context, that makes this less frightening, and I’m glad there’s a context. But someone still thought it was a good idea to put this up on YouTube?
