QOTD: The Obama psychosis


“The Obamas didn’t make the system, the system made them. Michelle Obama can ‘code switch’ and appear relatable because her status has been profitably branded to left-leaning constituents. Black Americans have historically been the most left leaning constituency and thus the most important to neutralize. The Obamas expanded war, austerity, and the militarized police state without protest. Their record doesn’t shine a light on Black people, it does the opposite. It associates Black people with the worst excesses of this vile and decrepit imperialist system. The fact that there are many who see this as a progressive development is outright frightening and an indication of the work we have to do to struggle against the psychosis produced by living within this American nightmare.”
