Musician Charlie Daniels: Obama's actions 'disastrous'

Musician Charlie Daniels: Obama's actions 'disastrous'

Snip: Country music legend ( :rofl:) Charlie Daniels on Friday published an open letter accusing President Obama of being socialist, elitist, and naive.

..."Am I accusing you of being a Muslim? No I'm not," he writes, "But the jury is still out a little bit on that subject in my mind, because many times your sympathies seem to lean in that direction. You need to watch who you bow to Mr. President." :scared:


Oh noes! A man whose sole contribution to music occurred when I was in pigtails is now criticizing the President! Who will they bring out next??! The granddaughter of that lady in the "where's the beef?" Wendy's commercial??! :scared: :scared:

6. Good Lord. What is in the water these days. Where's the wingnuts burning Daniels' CDs?
Remember the brou-ha-ha over the Dixie chicks when they offered extremely mild criticism of the pResident?

So where's all the outrage at Daniels' insulting the President? Mmn-hmn. At least Geico seems to have pulled the commercials for a while. Haven't seen them lately.

7. I'm sorry, but I see this as a sad sign of the times.
Mr Daniels was a supporter of Carter who used to write songs about national unity. It's a shame he's gone to the dark side, because we could use more unity right about now.

Well the eagles been flying slow, and the flag's been flying low, and a lotta people say that America's fixing to fall. But
speakig just for me, and some people from Tennesse,we got a thing or two to tell ya all.This lady may have stumbled, but she
ain't ever fell. And if our enemies don't believe that, they can all go straight to hell.We're gonna put her feet back on
righteousness and then, God bless America again.

And you never did think that it would ever happen again in America did you? you never did think that we'd ever get together
again. well we damn sure fooled ya. we're walking real proud and we're talking real proud again here in America.Ya never did
think that it would ever happen again.

from them sound up in Long Islandout to San Francisco bay, and ev'rything in between it is our home. and we may have done a
little bit of fighting amongst ourselves, but you outside people best leave us alone. 'Cause we'll all stick together, and
you can take that to the bank. that's the cowboys and the hippies, and the rebels and the yanks!you just go lay your hand on
a Pittsburgh Steeler fan and i think gonna finally understand.

and you never did think that it would ever happen again, in America did ya? you never think we'd ever get together again.
well we damn sure fooled ya.we're walking real proud and talking real loud again here in America. ya never did think that it
would ever happen again.

And if you remember this, you are just as old and crusty as me.

This isn't really a response to you. It's a response to the idea.

This is not, strictly speaking, a sign of the times. It's a sign of all the times.

Daniels' is a racist. I know this personally because I know him personally. He's not a friend. He's not someone I call up and go hand out with on weekends, but he's someone I've met several times, and he would know my name.

But it's not actually about him. I just know where he's coming from, and it's the same place people just like him are coming from.

They're racists.

The difference between Carter and Obama is not one of political ideology. Here's the truth. Carter was much more liberal than Obama is. That's fine. I still like Obama. I liked Carter. I was personally more conservative than him on economic issues. In any case, people like Charlie Daniels look at Obama, and they see one thing.

Pardon the word, but it's apt. This is what they see. Delete this post if you must. I am only expressing the truth of what others perceive. And I'm not going to put asterix in it as though that makes it better.

What Charlie Daniels and others like him see is a nigger. THAT is the difference between Carter and Obama.

I am sick, sick, sick, sick of it. We act so shocked that Obama is held to this standard to which no one else has been held, and we ask ourselves why, why, why. And we may say it quietly among ourselves, and we may think it without saying, but that doesn't do a damn bit of good.

Those people out there, those Obama haters who think we in here are idiots, they know this, but they won't admit it because they're so full up on their white privilege that they can't. It kills their liberal fantasy. Obama is well aware of the racism against him. That's part of why he is as conservative as he seems to be. (There are other reasons he "seems" to be that way, but that's another subject.)

I don't believe in the liberal fantasy anymore, not that I really ever did. Obama got elected, yeah. But we're still a racist nation, and the sleeping racists were woken up by his election. THAT is why all this idiotic bullshit leveled against him has gotten so much play on CNN. We are still a racist nation. Obama is wrong, is bad, because he's black.

Muslim has nothing to do with it.

11. My gawd, you spoke the truth.
Those racists are everywhere. And they've been after Barack Obama since the day he threw his hat into the ring.
