Armstrong did not set Negro-Cons Back...

As I traverse the Blogsphere and read various articles and listen to all the talking heads, the one thing we see happening is all Negro-Cons and Conservative alike are abandoning Armstrong Williams. This is not the least bit surprising being that Negro-Cons have no sense of loyalty and are more interested in keeping in tune with what their white counter parts have to say than bonding amongst themselves to produce something worthy of the attention of Black men and women. Not one Negro-Con or white conservative have stood up for Armstrong with their so-called Christian convictions and said, he made a mistake and had a lapse in judgment as do all men at some point, and now that his mistake has been made known, it is time to correct it and embrace our brother as Christians do, Not one Negro-Con has said this; the reason being is they are some pathetic men and women who only care about themselves and personal gain. Read what the Negro-Con Lashawna Barber had to say. She first tells us about how Christian she is and how much she agree with the conservative agenda but then she goes into this brouhaha about how Armstrong have set Negro-Cons back, as if they were actually upward mobile. Lashawna like all other Negro-Cons are only looking at how Armstrong actions will affect them being that they are already considered handkerchief heads. Message to Lashawna and other Negro-Cons, Armstrong did not set you back; he only confirmed what we already suspected and knew about Negro-Cons. Now do the Christian thing and forgive your brother. LOL

There may be something else going on. Williams has not been in good graces with the Christian conservatives after the gay scandal several years ago. This issue is the last nail in the coffin for them.

Well he can now begin a career as a spokeman for the Hair Club for Men ... he'll be just as believeable in it as any commentaries after this point.

So Armstrong actually is gay??

Was that part of the scandal you're referring to, EG?

Well, FAHEEM since you encouraged this... I will gear some comments to what LaShawn said:

"Reinforcing the black-conservatives-are-sellouts stereotype, Williams has just handed to liberals, on a plate made of pure gold served by a well-dressed butler in a most tastefully decorated setting, enough fodder to keep them gobbling for months to come." - L. Barber
_______________________________________________________

I just want to highlight the irony that goes along with what she spoke of:
"Reinforcing the black-cons-are-sellouts stereotype."

What's funny about this is how the stereotypical or Black consensus idea about "Airing Our Dirty Laundry" - aka Putting Our Business Out In The [WHITE] Streets, conveniently, was something B-CON's denounced as something not worth viewing in that light. That it didn't matter how Whites would or could use Bill Cosby's comments, for instance.

Now, all-of-a-sudden, B-CON's are concerned about reinforcing stereotypes and how things come across...

Interesting...

EG, you may be right. I believe as another Blogger commented, The USA Today newspaper is not known for getting the inside scoop and I can not think of one story they broke due to the investigation they did for the story on behalf of their Paper; Which means that Armstrong Williams was dimmed out by someone or some group of people, to embarrass him, possibly Bush or Rod Paige. The question is who? And why? But I thank them for it!

Nmaginate, it is indeed true that Armstrong Williams is gay, not that it matters one way or the other, it is just that he hides it and was sued some years ago for sexual harassing a male employee that worked for him I believe.

Ethnically speaking... "Ohhhhh!!! Snap!!!" rofl

Sorry, I didn't know that. And, no... it doesn't matter to me who and what he was/is in his sexual orientation. I guess explains why he always came across as a weird cat to me.

Hmmm.... Faheem... He must turned on somebody or they just wanted to make a point about whose in control when it comes to the CONservative movement. Much to their shagrin, "A Nigg-r Ain't Sh*t" there even when he/she is in their White laps.

Damn... That's some gangster sh*t!
Just when the silly mofo's believe the godFather loves his dog... He shoots the b*tch.

Look at how the wagons circled around Condelezza Rice, Colin Powell or Clarence Thomas whenever something is said about the actions or statements. Then compare it to how no one is defending Williams. Williams has stauntly defended Rice and Thomas for years but he is left to fend for himself on this issue. Why? The only thing I can surmised is the sexual harassment lawsuit in 1997 that was settled out of court.

La Shawn is so taken aback about this because she owes her success to the same type of white backing and promotion that Armstrong does. LB has demonstrated little intellect, wisdom or even righteousness (she claims to be a Christian…which does not say much for Christians then). Yet, she probably has the most popular Black Blog due to the fact that it gets plugged by white conservative media and blogs. I do not doubt that she benefits financially from this added attention and traffic coming from white conservative referrals.

These Negroes are like trained pets. They know that they will get a Scooby Snack and their heads patted and rubbed if the roll over, sit, speak, stand, bark and fetch the stick for their white conservative owners. Conditioning behavior is not rocket science. You simply reward the pets when they do what you want and or chastise and punish them when they do not obey their trainers wishes.

These Negro cons are like the Rap Video Hoochies. They say that they are not being exploited, because they actually want to appear on video showing their tig bitties and bog biities. Thus, they argue, how can they be selling out WOMEN, when they are volunteering for this and profiting at the same time? This is the exact same black conservative argument that they CHOSE the ideology and white conservatives are not exploiting them. We should call them the white conservative video hoes. When you see the footage of the republican conventions and other gathering, you can see the camera pan to the smiling, standing, clapping and buck dancing black Negroes hoes.

There DISGUSTING.

And you are pitiful. Commenting on black America and having a young child but you have no idea about the NCLB which is the biggest change to educational policy in 30 years.

But you get up on your little blog and insult people who actually spend some time actually learning the issues that affect our people.

Nigger please... get mirror.

But they why bother, you are so down you don't vote. Oh yea and you have NO plan. You just introspect like a woman on Oprah. Not even looking for a solution.

You guys are messed up.

What kind of tissue do you like, SCOTT?

Kleenex or Puffs?

All this crying: "You guys..."
... because your every angle explodes in your face.

Why do you run so much SCOTT when I ask you simple questions? Apparently, you have NO ANSWERS to go along with having NO PLAN (yourself).

I will have you know that I have planed, prepared and am now Performing my PLAN Scotty boy. However, I cannot suggest that what works for me, my life, my family would work for everyone. Thus, I am not trying to impose or force my plan upon others. What works for me might not work for them. With a young child, I only plan on the educational system to supplment the education I provide for her at HOME....not depend on it.

Also, like i noted before, you Negro-Cons dont have a plan.....you are simply followers. Where are your independant proposals that you present to the white conservative base for implimentation? YOU HAVE NONE...and even if you did....they would be REJECTED and you have no leverage with them to compel them to accept it. Thus, even though you all are aligning with the position of known racist....you have no problem with it....because the enemy of your enemy is your friend. You see the black traditional leadership as your enemy...thus, many of you Negro-Cons align with the traditional enemy of black leadership, which is white racist. Brilliant strategical move...I must say....cut off the nose to spite the face, I believe this strategy is called.

Disclaimer: Haven't read any of the comments; this is strictly regarding Faheem's post.

Faheem, I skimmed Lashawn's post, and I failed to notice ANY CRITICISM OF BUSH! Yes, Armstrong Williams is a scumbag. But remember, it's simply unethical for Armstrong to do what he did; it's outrightly illegal for the government to pay the media to push its agenda. That is called PROPAGANDA. It's fascinating to me that Armstrong gets lambasted by the "negro-cons," for what he did wrong, but nary a peep is heard condemning their beloved Dubya.

ROMAL...

I was thinking the same thing.
But, of course, with that Frame Of Reference (more like a Frame Of Deference for them) it is not at all surprising.

Selective Deference towards Bush/government....
Acquiescing to White Supremacy by any other name.

You know a person's mindset by the things they Take For Granted or what they Grant As Acceptable with little or no thought as to the contradictions and inconsistencies they present to their so-called strongly held beliefs/ideology.

Here is something Interesting, Armstrong has said he is not the only one that takes money. This is from a Green Room talk with David Corn.

http://www.thenation.com/capitalgames/index.mhtml?bid=3&pid=2114

"I asked if Williams had yet been contacted by the inspector general at the Education Department, the agency that had awarded the contract that supplied him $241,000 for promoting the NCLB measure within the African-American community. Representative George Miller, the ranking Democrat on the education committee, and other House Democrats had already called for an investigation. Why should the IG contact me? Williams replied, noting he had been merely a subcontractor. Any thorough investigation, I remarked, would include questioning the subcontractor. He scratched his head. "Funny," he said. "I thought this [contract] was a blessing at the time."

And then Williams violated a PR rule: he got off-point. "This happens all the time," he told me. "There are others." Really? I said. Other conservative commentators accept money from the Bush administration? I asked Williams for names. "I'm not going to defend myself that way," he said. The issue right now, he explained, was his own mistake. Well, I said, what if I call you up in a few weeks, after this blows over, and then ask you? No, he said


There are others, and they all know about one another..... sick sick sick...
