CBC’s Cleaver: We would be ‘marching on the White House’ if Obama weren’t president

posted at 5:45 pm on September 18, 2011 by Tina Korbe

The members of the Congressional Black Caucus continue to be outraged at the “unconscionable” rate of unemployment among African-Americans — but they’re not employing the same tactics to force the president to pay attention to their complaints as they would ordinarily, CBC Chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) admitted in comments published today in The Miami Herald.

As chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, [Cleaver] has been at odds with President Barack Obama over his administration’s response to the soaring unemployment rate in the African-American community.

Nearing 17 percent, joblessness among blacks is at a three-decade high and almost twice the size of the overall unemployment rate. The black caucus wants the president to do more.

But the group’s efforts are freighted with political sensitivities, given Obama’s unique role as the first African-American occupant of the White House and the sometimes untethered animosity that his election has triggered.

“If (former President) Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver said. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

In effect, Cleaver is saying that the CBC has dealt differently with this president precisely because he’s black. How is that OK? Either we envision a world in which we are judged by the content of our character and not the color of our skin or we don’t. What do Cleaver and the other members of the CBC dream of?

It’s nice, at least, that Cleaver doesn’t want in any way to contribute to a climate of hate. But, then, what would you expect from the founder of another Congressional caucus — the nine-member “Civility Caucus”? Certainly, you wouldn’t expect him to sit idly by as members of the CBC told Tea Party members to go to hell or referred to Tea Partiers as “the real enemy.”

Oh, wait. Cleaver did do that. It took Andre Carson’s outrageous remarks and Allen West’s threat to leave the CBC to spark any hate-mitigating reaction from Cleaver at all — and, even then, he was in no hurry to disavow Carson’s vitriol. Eventually, though, Cleaver met privately with West and convinced him to stay. But with his comments today in “The Miami Herald,” Cleaver again implicitly endorses the identity politics that so inform CBC members’ approach to the issues, in effect arguing it’s OK and even encouraged for CBC members and others to hold Obama to a different standard just because of the president’s race. Seems to me like such a backward approach for the chairman of the CBC to take.

Update (Ed): Cleaver should have been noted as (D-MO), not (R-MO).  I’ve fixed it above.

when you are multi-racial.. you usually pick the race that will get you the highest status.

upinak on September 18, 2011 at 6:00 PM

If anyone in the press had a sense of curiousity, that would be the irony of the century. In the Jim Crow days it was the white racists that determined that “one drop” of “colored” blood made you so, ensuring you the lowest status.

Now we have black racists doing the opposite, for the opposite effect. Cleaver is no different or any better than David Duke.

Journolist Operatives,remember!?
=================================

July 20, 2010
How far were Journolisters willing to go to help Obama win the election?
**************
***************

Jonathan Strong, at the Daily Caller, quotes from that email list known as the Journolist:

Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC…”
Kill ABC because in an ABC News debate, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos had pressed Obama with questions about Wright.

“…and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”

As a reminder, Cleaver has never been on Team Obama:

During the course of the Democratic Presidential Primary, Cleaver endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton.[2] Cleaver claimed that African American superdelegates who supported Clinton were subjected to harassment, threatened with primary opponents and called “Uncle Tom.” He said they were told, “You’re not black if you’re not supporting Barack Obama. … It’s ugly.”[3] On March 30, 2008, he was interviewed on The Sunday Edition on CBC Radio and said he realized he was on the losing team: “Even though I don’t expect the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the Indianapolis Colts, I cheer for the Kansas City Chiefs.” He also explained his support for Trinity United Church of Christ and its former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.[4][5] According to BlackMissouri.com.,[6] U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. of Illinois asked Cleaver, “If it comes down to the last day and you’re the only superdelegate? … Do you want to go down in history as the one to prevent a black from winning the White House?” “I told him I’d think about it,” Cleaver explained. Cleaver said during the course of the primary he’d be shocked if Obama wasn’t the next President but made it clear he still supported Clinton until she suspended her bid.

He is clearly conflicted. Hilary and Jeremiah Wright? That being said, if I were a conspiracy theorist I’d be wondering if Hilary put Cleaver up to this.

It’s because his mother was a white girl from Kansas….Oh wait. It’s because Obama grew up in the black part of town and can relate to poor people…Oh wait, he grew up in Hawaii and hung out at the beach with the stoner white kids. It’s because his father was a important African American….Oh wait he was a Kenyan who left his family. It’s because Obama has light black skin and calls himself black….That’s it! Gotta have the brother’s back!

Michael K. on September 18, 2011 at 10:20 PM

First of all, let’s be honest, the CBC has “settled” for policies that have been detrimental to the black community for years. Their continuous blanket support for the Democratic Party has led to the plight in their community. So, how, they will lie about the tea party, in order to not criticize the person whose policies have directly affected their constituents, because he’s black.

What they should do is yell, the way they haven’t yelled at the Democrats, and tell Obama they didn’t elect him to go backwards and, if that’s the best he can do, they’ll recommend that people vote for Republicans next time around. Trust me, CBC, that will get some results, if fact you’d be surprised at the results you’d get. The only problem, you’d actually have to vote for people.

They might learn a lesson from the election in New York. People there were unhappy with Obama and they voted accordingly, wait and watch to see what changes that brings about.

Can we all agree that this great affirm-ative action and tolerance (special treatment due to skin color) experiment has been a huge flop?

While we are at it, most liberal ideals are flops.
Imagine if our country only had a conservative party. That is progress.

By the way, the violent flash mob violence epidemic going on in lots of urban areas are about 99.8% black participants and most of the motives are racial. Beating whites just for the fun of it.

If we had one instance, just ONE instance where a mob of white teenagers beat an AA just because he was black, we would be hearing about it all day, every day for weeks. But when the opposite happens, crickets.

But just wait, in some of the areas where these flash mobs are taking place, there is Concealed Carry. Sooner or later the mobs are going to cross someone who is carrying. Then there will be outrage when the evil white devil pops some caps into some poor, misunderstood black “children”. It will happen.

landlines on September 19, 2011 at 12:52 AM

I’m sure this will be taken the wrong way by some, which is why I’ve never expressed it, though I’ve thought it for quite a while, since the 2008 primary season, actually.

It’s understandable that any minority would cheer the opportunity to put one of their own in the White House. Considering the history of black Americans, the event could well be viewed as a second emancipation. At the very least, a very big deal.

However, therein lies a trap. Into which many have fallen in this case.

Women will tell you this. They have had to be better then equal in the past to receive even modestly equal treatment. Equal wasn’t good enough.

In this case, the rush to embrace a black man may, in fact, cost another deserving candidate a chance at the same office in the future.

When you get your shot, you better put a superstar up there.

If this were an acting job, even Matt Damon could do it. Or, in this case, Denzel. In fact, if the Presidency were and acting job, Barack Obama might be darn good at it. He’s certainly willing to read any script on any given day as if he really means it, even if it’s 180 degrees from what he said yesterday.

Unfortunately, it’s not an acting job. Electing a man who was, and remains, a public relations creation, and handing him the hopes and dreams of all people of color in America, was a tragedy.

And a singular mistake by those who would see that barrier fall, black and white and others among them.

The man is simply a buffoon whose hubris knows no limits. He is hardly the figure to carry the torch for black America. He risks having that torch drowned in a tidal wave of debt and knuckle-headed decisions by himself and the cast of nincompoops with which he has surrounded himself. It could take a while to light it again.

Cleaver is clearly of the “old school” of black politicians in that he earned a divinity degree, but he also grew up in projects and is a Kansas City pol, its first black Mayor, under whose tenure the degeneration of the city accelerated. So naturally he was elected to Congress.

He always impressed me as a guy who wanted to do the right thing and had a sense of morality, but who lacked the fortitude to fight so much for the high road where it does not fit the political interests of his Party and allies.

Swageloc fittings cathcphrase is/was “Swagelock-A name you can trust”. We had our rep trained to bring a chocolate cake out to our plant every visit. He forgot one time and brought us a bunch of pocket protectors instead. We ridiculed him in fun and someone took one of the pocket protectors and crossed out their catch phrase and wrote “Chocolate Cake you can eat”. One of our new hires was a black dude. He saw that and thought it was a racial slur of some kind and brought it to management. Result: all white guys got talked to and forced to retrain in our Diversity and Inclusion department. Even though there was nothing but jest at the Swageloc rep in this whole thing. This was in 2003. Thats when it hit me square between the eyes that diversity, inclusion, multiculturalism, and tolerance really didn’t mean what I thought it did!! It has gotten much worse since then.

Lonetown on September 19, 2011 at 5:11 AM

“If (former President) Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver said. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

So, the CBC who disagree with Obama’s (lack of) policies regarding black unemployment won’t complain about Obama because he is black.

Yet, according to the CBC, those who dare to speak out and disagree with Obama, because of his policies, are reduced to people who just “hate Obama because he is black”?

So, it’s ok for the CBC to hate Obama’s job performance, but they won’t say anything because he is black, but it’s not ok for Conservatives to hate Obama’s job performance because he is black…. And Cons are the racists?

sarainitaly on September 19, 2011 at 5:19 AM

The CBC has sold its “people” into the bondage of dependency upon an institution – the federal government – that they and their fellow travelers on the left have turned into a bloated wasteland of misplaced priorities and crippled by an unsustainable fiscal policy.

How did each of the CBC’s membership spend their thirty pieces of silver?

The Congressional Black Caucus is the equivalent of the mindset of a black Ku Klux Klan. They are elected by the color of their skin and are racist in every thought they have. As long as they do not incite violence towards others of different skin colors, let them hatemonger all they want to.

I HATE the race card being played. However, I also hate it when people assume that most blacks are how you assumed them to be.

Most blacks like 80-90% vote for an ideal that chains us all

whether malevolent or ignorant I don’t care it pisses me off

the Jewish vote is near the same and that sucks too

I don’t give a sheet if fifty blacks got jobs over everyone else if they are more qualified

I am merely portraying it as I see it

I am not forcing racism on anyone,the government is and if there is more of it we can be sure the biggest douchebags will be pulling their pay from the private sector

sorry if truth hurts but it’s pretty clear

But isn’t that the message that the CBC sends?

CBC’s Cleaver: “We would be ‘marching on the White House’ if Obama weren’t president we weren’t racists.”

Yes, we are racist rat bast*rds, but it’s OK because we’re black racist rat bast*rds. That’s allowed. It’s you white devils who have to tape your mouths shut and dole out government benefits as part of the never-ending payment for past sins you had no part of.
