Chicago’s Black Community Organizers to Obama: Just Quit!

By Eowyn @DrEowyn


When I first read the headline of the article below, “Must-See: Black Activists in Chicago Tell Obama to ‘Just Quit’ After State of the Union Address,” I cynically thought to myself:

“Nyah! It’s just blacks who are disgruntled because their messiah hasn’t delivered on all the goodies they thought he’d promised.”

But as you’ll see when you read the short article below, the black activists — at least those interviewed in the video — really seem to be seeing through the Fraud in the White House.

Maybe there really is hope . . . .

Caleb Howe reports for Independent Journal Review, Jan. 30, 2014:

Tuesday night, activists in Chicago were interviewed shortly after the President delivered the State of the Union address, offering their perspective and feedback on what the President had to say.

Rebel Pundit has released video of those reactions, including remarks from J.R. Fleming of the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign, Joe Watkins, Founder of V.O.T.E. (Voices of the Ex-Offender), and Mark Carter, of V.O.T.E., among other activists.

Mark Carter commented, “We’d be better of with you cutting off your presidency right now. Just quit.”

Obama’s blame game is not selling, with Fleming saying “the reason why our economy is dying is because the President’s approach as always is to place blame.”

Mark Carter adds “In Chicago, there are no Republicans, no tea partiers,” clearly putting local and national hardships squarely on Democrats’ shoulders.

Also taking hits were raising the minimum wage, the influence of unions, the President’s lack of specificity or prescription, and even the now infamous cup of cocoa.

President Obama’s troubles keep piling up. His approval ratings are down, his signature initiative is a disaster, and his speeches aren’t the salve they once were. Losing black political activists in Chicago? That is a warning sign even the aloof Obama can’t ignore.
