The Blame Obama Syndrome

HT_obama_tw_jtm_141122_16x9_992

It seems like whenever something wrong happens, there’s only one person some people (mostly conservatives) will blame, and that person is President Barack Obama. ISIS? Blame Obama. Any mass shooting anywhere? Blame Obama. Natural disasters? Of course, blame Obama.

As you can see it’s quite comical, if not totally sad and insane. The right has this nagging habit of finding things, virtually and literally anything, to blame the President with no matter how nonsensical it is. The argument is that liberals blamed the previous president George W. Bush on everything. So, why can’t conservatives do the same with Obama?

Barack Obama may not be the greatest president this nation had. But there are a few things he did that deserve some props:

The economy has grown considerably.

Job openings have risen and unemployment dropped.

The stock market doubled in value after Obama took office.

Gas prices has been dipping in prices and is still dropping.

Osama Bin Laden, the man responsible for 9/11, was killed under his watch.

Obamacare.

And yet, the Right continues to dump all over the Obama administration’s accomplishments and instead find the most preposterous reasons to find fault, no matter how outlandish. If a cop is killed somewhere in this country, well, it’s obvious that it’s Obama’s fault.

When you think about it, it’s similar to when people blame black folks for everything wrong with this nation. Rape? Blame the black man. Single mothers? Blame the black woman. Gangs? Blame black youth. Since Obama is a black man in the highest office in the world, it’s safe to make a reasonable connection between blaming him and blaming black people. Black folks are this country’s scapegoat whenever a crime or something ridiculous occurs, especially when a white person is a victim. This syndrome of blaming Obama for everything is not much different. In fact. it’s basically the same.

The sad part is that after Obama finishes his second term in office, he will likely still be the target of the Right’s bullshit just like black people will continue to this nation’s scapegoat. We have already seen conservatives try to discredit and demonize the Black Lives Matter movement by pinning recent notable mainstream murders of a policeman and two newspeople onto the movement as if it was advocating violence against cops and white people. And it has been gaining traction among the Right since.

It’s obvious to anyone that blaming Obama and black people for whatever happens is nothing short of racist and pathetic. Since Obama took office, it seems that racism came out of the closet and became more and more overt. Sadly and almost ironically, the right blames Obama and black people for that too, because to them the real victims are the ever-so-innocent white people. Obama and black folks are the usual suspects of white racist paranoia garbage, and I blame that on white racism and their douche bag disciples.

  1. Having grown up in the south I left at the age of fifteen thanks to my father; however my father tried to tell me to stay away from Blacks. I respect my father but I will not follow any idea that prevents me from seeing anyone and everyone as Equal. From the richest to the most poor anyone expressing an objection to Obama’s achievements is just a Sudo-Racist that has been indoctrinated with KKK ideas that are objectionable and anti-American. Blacks have not stood by me in the private sector but crumbled from White intimidation form White Supremacist outlaw bikers. In fact it was Blacks that tried to intimidate me but became scared when instead of being scared of them, I made them my friends. Having just been discharged from the 82nd Airborne having fought beside Blacks and members of the Klan as well it was a letdown for me to see how cowardly some of these Black fellow workers were. This was in 1965. Now in 2015 it is time we come together and stand up to all the Sudo-KKK believers.
    White Supremacist hold all gangs to the code of the street and all these gangs Blacks including Bloods & Crips, Latinos, Asian, Native Americans all hanker down to the Aryan Brotherhood who have made treaties in prisons with them holding them to a war with Police Officers and society. Those gangs stalk me and my multicultural family as I have Blacks in my family (do you have Latinos or Whites in yours?) gangs are destroying families in America. This is done because America is a failure in enforcing Equality. The Republican political party are nothing more than White Supremacist in political disguise; never helping to gain equality for all citizens and immigrants.
    If I respect you and your family no matter what race you say you are why is it you cannot respect my multicultural family? And should anyone still be uninformed there is no such thing as race in this world; only an evil intent to separate. http://www.newsweek.com/there-no-such-thing-race-283123

      Although your post has nothing to do with the title of the post, I still respect your comments to a certain extent below. I respect them because everyone should be looked upon as equal. However, once must not forget that when dealing with racism stemming from an individual of ANY race, you’re also dealing with an evil spirit that has been unleashed against the world that has resulted and rooted in social conditioning by the so-called ruling group (Esau/Whites). The Bible refers to Esau as “The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation forever. (Malachi 1:4). Edomites/Whites are the descendants of Esau.

      White people would love to see nothing more than for minorities, especially those of Spanish descent and Blacks to fight each other through dumb ass turf wars. However, through the fog of 400 years of conditioning and deceiving pretty much the entire world, it’s unfortunate that a lot of black and brown people are unable to see through the BS and come together against the wickedness of whites in general.

      And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Revelation 12:9).

  2. The blaming of Pres. Obama goes hand-in-hand with white supremacy. As if to constantly say: AMERICA IS FAILING BECAUSE WE HAVE A BLACK PRESIDENT! Even some of the most uneducated whites know that Obama has done a decent job as President but they cannot bring themselves to say that in public for fear of appearing to other whites as siding with the supposed enemy (black people).

    Generally, white people (Edomites), look beyond Obama’s political and presidential accomplishments and instead, focus and zoom in on his race. Once again, the white gaze is a dangerous thing to contend with because they continually nurture a warped, elevated sense of themselves as a whole and refuse to deal with reality as a group.

    Even among the pseudo-KKK, whom you speak of, as soon as they reach a perceived financial success they don’t hesitate to call those ‘whites’ beneath them ‘white trash’. It’s a narcissistic white supremacy we are talking about here with many that turn on each other to save themselves. I’d say the average white nationalist is a sociopath narcissist. Funny thing is most that do post on sites such as ‘stormfront’ are well to do people in the upper middle class to wealthy. Very dangerous mindset for the rest of us marginalized non-whites.

    Thank you for your post and good luck to you sir.
