Chicago Unchained: The State of the Union 2015

This is a response by Chicago activists to BHO’s state of the Union address.

These are the same people that spoke out in advance of the 2014 elections.

Kudos to them for speaking out.  They need to understand that the Democratic Party has never helped them.  Not ever.

    “He doesn’t care about us.” LOL< welcome to the real world.

    • Hardnox says:

      Indeed… more than likely they are disappointed that the “free shit” hasn’t yet arrived as was promised by so many of their leaders.

  2. Liz entrekin says:

    To be fair, neither has Republican politicos. There Are more fiscally and morally responsible in the Republican party attempting change. Make it shameful to be Democrat and the general public Might stir. Apathy Group seems to have the greatest party following and until that group is ousted it is doubtful any inroads can be made in returning fully to the United States of our forefathers vision.

    • Hardnox says:

      Right you are Liz. The establishment R’s have been worthless as well but they only represent the minority of R’s. The rest do see the obvious problems and know how to fix it albeit a tough task given the climate.

      It is difficult if not impossible to remove entrenched oposition.

    “Who do you work for?” They haven’t been paying attention, or they’d know who he works for and it’s not them. They’re part of the useful idiots that voted for him and now he’s done with them. Stepping stones – that’s all they were.

    HISTORY
    NO RATIONAL REASON – I’D JUST RATHER BE A JACKASS
    On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find. (Via Grand Old Partisan)
    On April 20, 1871 the Republicans passed the anti-Ku Klux Klan Act outlawing Democratic terrorist groups. At the urging of President Ulysses Grant, Congress passed the Ku Klux Klan Act. Also known as the third Enforcement Act, the bill was a controversial expansion of federal authority designed to give the federal government additional power to protect voters. The act established penalties in the form of fines and jail time for attempts to deprive citizens of equal protection under the laws and gave the President the authority to use federal troops and suspend the writ of habeas corpus in ensuring that civil rights were upheld. Founded as a fraternal organization by Confederate veterans in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan soon became a paramilitary group devoted to the overthrow of Republican governments in the South and the reassertion of white supremacy. Through murder, kidnapping, and violent intimidation, Klansmen sought to secure Democratic victories in elections by attacking black voters and, less frequently, white Republican leaders. Republicans led the charge on civil rights and women’s rights. This list was originally compiled by Michael Zak at Grand Old Partisan and then posted at Free Republic:

      Thanks for sharing.

    • Kathy says:

      Gene, I agree with Hardnox – that’s a hell of a list, and finally I have some of the ‘history’ all in one place, where in other places I’ve only seen bits and pieces of this. If you don’t mind, I’m going to copy this and share it when I need a boo-yow answer.

    Guess one could call this “GEE, NO SHIT”. Welcome to our world as well, brothers and sisters. How many of YOU voted for the fool more than once ? Just because “he looked like you” ?

  6. vonMesser says:

    How about someone on the left answering this question:
    ……….Why do you support Democrats no matter what they do TO you, and
    ……….do not support Republicans no matter what they do FOR you?

      It is Amazing what all is being brought to light on Obama’s illegal actions. I doubt you missed but here is a quick list of all his fires burning and most are traced back to his executive orders and “notices” that are now hitting the dung heap. And yet, as of today NO ONE is beginning impeachment proceedings. THOUGH House conversations and questionings are showing a stronger stance.No wonder he has aged so much in photos, hes using a lot of energy in bullying, commanding, rages, and strong arming tactics.

      1-IRS – targeting groups, full harassment by these and other agencies for audits etc
      2-NSA over-reach on communications spying including illegal cookies, stong arm tactics! And hidden cable diversion of businesses and people both national and international.
      3-Attorney General-Fast and Furious, Ferguson and urging racial divisions
      4-Benghazi
      5-US Customs/Immigration. DACA. DAPA
      6–Shadow Immigration same as 5 but probably more involved
      7-Obamacare
      8-Budget and Taxes
      9-Guantanamo & release of prisoners
      10. Illegal exchange of highly dangerous prisoners without following the law and reporting to Congress before any action
      11-FCC. Net neutrality and moving internet to FCC control
      12-Keystone
      13-Public speeches
      14-Global warming
      15-UN resolution concerning gun ownership and financial/one world government
      16-trillions for bailouts and handouts
      17-executive budget which at least doubled after he took office and explosion of employed in his departments and staff
      18-international political screw ups
      19-EPA over-reach and bully tactics
      20-His appointments to many offices and positions most of which have resigned or come under scrutiny
      And his personal staff which last week showed the resignation of his last original staff
      21-Illegal seizure of assets on Suspicion of tax evasion or misconduct without court order forcing protracted and expensive court action to have them returned
      22-Veterans scandal on benefits
