An Ode to Barack Obama for President of the United States of America

November 4, 2008

by Muisi-kongo Malonga

We now stand at the edge of history,

Impatiently waiting for our fate to reveal itself,

Will we soar in open skies or will we plummet deeper into a perilous abyss?

Only we can decide,

Armed with paper and pen,

Ballot and staff,

We will begin to rewrite the story of this land,

Erasing the exclusion and isolation that waved at us mockingly as an estranged flag was tossed and tussled by torrential winds,

Perhaps now those stripes and bright stars will symbolize a dream in which we all can stake a claim,

Perhaps that brilliant red will represent the blood that runs through all of our veins and not just a silent response to the bloodshed and genocide of oppressed masses,

Perhaps the blue will now be symbolic of friendly welcoming shores and not the muddy pain-filled waters of Katrina and the middle passage,

And white, that ever illusive color, will no longer be emblematic of unattainable power, prosperity and freedom but instead of peace.

The promise of a great and just nation lays just meters ahead,

Stay the course, do not surrender until your ballot is cast …

One thought on “An Ode to Barack Obama for President of the United States of America

  1. Susu

    Blessings be to Barak Obama. We who believe in the idea of opportunity for all must recognize that Obama will be constantly vilified by the media propagandists. We therefore must be prepared to support Obama’s positives and respond to the propaganda machine led by people like the Judases Roosh Limbug, Shorn Connity, Levinstein, Cunnilingham, Unkooltar, the Faux-tongued Networks and the propaganda machine that copies Nazi Germany’s propaganda machine to a ‘tee’ by people who ought to know better.

    Hence, Black America’s media must be on guard. Writers, radio announceers, rappers/hip-hop artists, the African-American public of about 50 million people, the global Black/Africoid popualtion of about two billion people — we must all make sure that these racist propagandists ond copiers of the old Nazi propaganda machine will not be allowed to ‘tar and feather’ Obama while we sit round like cowards and say nothing in Obama’s defense.

    Who made Shorn Connity, Roosh Limbugstein, O’really, Leevin, Cunni-lingham, Unkoolter and that nest of rat-mouths GOD? WHO MADE THEM GOD? And who gave them the right to insult Black people and to spread lies, innuendo, and propaganda about Black people and our leadership?

    When the propagandist Roosh Limbug admits that he does not believe any of the propaganda that he spreads over the airways — yet over the past 20 years, people like Roosh, Shorn and others have caused America to decline, go into wars, loose its standing, loose billions, promote sending trillions to the Middle East to build walls, settlements, empires for religious entities and rebuilding other nations — THEN THESE PROPAGANDISTS ARE TO TAKE THE BLAME FOR DISTROYING AMERICA.

    Yet, you hear the same Shorn, Roosh, Levin, O’really and that gang of rat-ta-tat mouths siding with the TRAITORS WHO OPENED THE SOUTH TO FOREIGN AUTO COMPANIES, WHILE THEY REFUSE TO HELP THE AUTOWORKERS OF THE NORTHERN STATES RECEIVE LOANS (THAT WILL BE PAID BACK WITH INTEREST) FROM THE FEDS.

    It is people like Roosh, Shorn, Levin, Cunnilingham and that nest of tricksters WHO PROMOTE THE SENDING OF BILLIONS TO PARTICULAR NATIONS IN THE MIDDLE EAST TO BUILD WALLS AND SETTLEMENTS.

    Those who support Obama should never go to sleep — THE PROPAGANDA MACHINE WILL BE WORKING OVERTIME — AND ‘WaObamas’ (Obamaistas) must stand firm and fight back.

    By fighting back, Obama must establish a media network (HARPO, WHERE ARE YOU IN THIS ENDEAVOR), that brings out the truth. WHenever the propaganda machine goes out on its ‘MOUTHORGASM’ OF LIES AND INNUENDO, A NETWORK CREATED FOR PASSING THE TRUTH SHOULD RESPOND WITH THE TRUTH.

    O’really, Rooosh, Shorn, Levin and that nest of propagandists have gone too far. Enough already. They are responsible for the LACK OF CONFIDENCE THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD HAS IN AMERICA, BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN INSULTING, DEGRADING AND SPREADING RACIST LIES AND PROPAGANDA ABOUT AMERICANS AS WELL AS OTHER NATIONS WHO ARE FED UP WITH THEIR LIES AND TRICKS.
