Barack Obama Also Sending Secret Code To Blacks

News

That Barack Obama, so articulate and clean and Harvard-y ....yet, did you know he was of African descent? This sort of slipped by during that whole two-year presidential campaign, but "OWN THE IDIOT CABLE-NEWS CYCLE" webzine The Politico has some "fresh" gossip and it goes a little bit like this: The Black People, in this country, it's almost as if they have their own "slang," comprised of dual-meaning words and phrases used to undermine White America. And Obama, he is hep to this particular jive!


You know what will be a fun thing to report, on a political blog? When The Politico is closed down and folded into Gawker like every other website. Meanwhile, we shall maintain our boycott by linking to the latter instead of the former. (We still link to Ben Smith, though!)

While we wait for the Economy to mete out its horrific justice, enjoy this "inside peek" at whatever the fuck Obama is up to with all the "we straight" and basketball and "South side of Chicago," which is just a lyric in a very white Jim Croce song, right? RIGHT?

It's a good thing The Politico made its only African-American reporter do this article, for authenticity. In case you missed this historic civil-rights advance, "Nia-Malika Henderson, a Newsday reporter and one of the few black print journalists who covered Sen. Barack Obama on the campaign trail, is joining Politico, the political newspaper and Web site that promised to improve its staffing diversity after its sole African American reporter left last month to write a book."

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
