” A Spade Is A Spade”

I hate to belabor the “lipstick on a pig” issue, but I think the BO got a taste of what he and his race have been dealing us for too many years now. I saw his speech the day he said the infamous words. I want to believe that he said them only as a humorous way to make a point. If that is not correct, then I have to believe that his speach writer had the genius to sneak this old saying into his speach as a deliberate attack on Gov. Palin with one of two outcomes: 1.) It goes unnoticed and he has sneakily attacked Governor Palin, 2.) if it gets noticed, as we know it did, he can cry foul and blame the McCain campaign for mis-interpreting his remark. My guess is that his speech writers don’t have the brains to be that devious.

 Now to my point. If I were giving a speech and wanted to stress a fact, I could use a very old saying such as “let’s call a spade a spade.” I would deliver the speech with great naivete thinking I had used a tried and true saying to stress my point. It is my belief that I would be attacked immediately by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farakan,  Clarence Page, and other notable blacks for being “racist.” I’m sure they would demand an apology, and reparation back to the first slave brought to the shores of North America. 

I think what the BO got was a dose of his own medicine, and he didn’t like the taste.

  1. As a matter of fact, the word “pig” has been, and is used daily to refer to women who are easy. I know the spade phrase was probably invented in reference to blacks, but it has also become so common as to be used just as I described, to stress facts.
    My analogy is merely intended to emphasize that BO used a phrase that got him in trouble, and he didn’t like it. As a racist white male, I too hate it when I am taken to task for using the phrase I used to make the analogy, but I suppose that is okay.
    If we are to become a nation without racism, we must learn to deal with all of this petty non-sense.
    By the way, since when did “hockey mom” become a code word for white middle class mothers? I’d say it refers to a mother who trucks her kid back and forth to practices and goes to the games.
    I also happen to live in a small town, and I happen to have many black neighbors, so your argument is nil.
    If you re-read my post, you will also see that I really didn’t buy that BO made the comment to be insulting. I did, however make the point that he didn’t like the taste of the reaction he got.

  2. Terrible analogy. Has the word pig been used as a constant insult when dealing with women. Spade, the n-word, uppity and boy, etc has been used countless times when trying to demean black men/women throughout our history with whites.

    So unless you are saying that McCain, Cheney, Lincoln and the countless other people in government who have used that statement were using it to refer to a woman or Palin herself your argument holds no water.

    It is funny that people such as yourself would find it so easy to believe that Obama would be trying to insult this lady in such a way, all the while they use, for lack of a better term, code words when throwing crap out to the public.

    Small town values – small town like a family doesn’t usually contain those who are not like us.

    Hockey mom – we know damn well hockey moms, soccer moms and all the rest were used as a coin phrase for 30 to 40ish white middle class mothers.

    Need I go on? This is the pot calling the kettle black. McCain is trying to play victim all the while crying that Barrack was trying to play victim. It is a shame that people are so easily sidetracked from the REAL issues. If McCain is for change then he would run on that instead of running on Palin’s victimization.

    Thanks.

  3. Nice language, did I touch a nerve? Of course BO didn’t say it first, the saying is many years old. It has been used by politicians for years to stress that painting an old idea doesn’t make it new, and I’d like to believe that is what BO was stressing, You missed the entire point of my post, but judging by your emotional outburst I don’t believe you were thinking very clearly.

  4. DUM FUCK GO ON YOUTUBE YAH OLD FUCKING BAG.MCAIN SAID IT FIRST BARRACK IS JUST TELLING ON HIS BITCH ASS. YOU FUCKING RIGHT GIVE BACK WHAT AMERICA STOLE BITCH WE BUILT THIS COUNTRY AND THEY STOLE ARE IDEAS. BLACK WALL STREET BITCH
