I find the video to be folly on all counts and much like all the garbage tossed at the base fodder of the “conservative” movement a great disservice to all. It also discounts and discredits the very credible and plentiful faults that is the Obama presidency.
Willie JR Fleming: Appears to be a very legit community organizer with a focus in schools and housing areas. I fail to believe “conservatives” who enjoyed Flemings remarks in the video would be as supportive of his actions which include leading occupations of foreclosed properties. I also imagine a number of Flemings new fans would shudder whence hearing a black man speak out against profit motivated evictions of black people.
Paul McKinley: Ex-con who has won the primary to be the Republican candidate for the 2nd district congressional race. He is not officially backed or appreciated by the IL GOP but in an area that has never voted (R) some relevance is desired. Sadly he is unlikely to be seen as credible,as of 10 A.M EST his campaign website was pending deletion/renewal per GoDaddy.
Meghan Kyle: The female in the video. I couldn’t find anything about her. I think she would rile the average conservative in real life real issue settings.
Mark Carter: Mr Carter was highlighted in many corners for his Obama should just quit commentary. He along with Joe Watkins are tops in an organization called Voice Of The Ex-offender. I couldn’t find anything about the organization although I did find stuff about similar entities.
All in all do I think these folks represent any kind of dent in the 85% support of Obama? Hell no! I can only say that the rightospheres embrace and amplification of the cheesy video in fact misses the real point.
The black community in America isn’t the monolith most people declare it. It is indeed true they are absolutely owned by the Democrats. It is equally true that the blacks seem unified in their obliviousness that the Democrats have caused most of their communities problems. They are not however just mind numb robots. In fact any time spent in a predominantly black area will reveal a very palpable sense of something that consists of a mix of despair,acceptance and apathy. I’ve done it and can’t quite capture the words for it.
The Obama presidency has done nothing but ill for the black community. Although I am of the camp that any POTUS is a POTUS for all Americans I get that blacks actually bought into “Hope & Change” to a level no lily-white suburbanite leftist could dream of. That there is dissatisfaction amongst blacks towards Obama is understandable but the right,especially the white folks,should not think that the real dissatisfaction is with BHO alone but with the entire system,a system that the majority of the black community and the majority (all) of those in the video see as fixable only by government and taxation.
