I tweet about Jimmy Carter's phony attack on the 2party system and Roseanne lectures me about not smearing (even though I did not smear and gave a reasoned critique) - and here she is on Smiley & West smearing the Green Party as not racially inclusive when they had a Native American VP nominee in 2000, a VP of Venezuelan descent in 2004, and a black female Presidential nominee in 2008? Sour grapes much?
This is sooooooooooooo phony!
I attended a Smiley & West book Rich & Rest of us book event in the east L.A. area a few months ago.
As usually Smiley & West go on b******* about Obama and their solution is to keep voting for him.
I interrupted their speech and I asked “What about third parties” when they opined something to the effect “What can we do”? regarding how Obama has acted as GWB’s third term in so many ways.
West gave me a smart ass reply to the effect “My grandmother supports justice but I’m not gonna vote for her.”
Tavis ignored the topic of alternative parties. When it came time for the book signing I asked West to pray about it and he replied with a dismissive grunt.
And now to see Roseanne smear the Green Party as racist when they’ve had racial minority candidates as VP or President in the past 3 election cycles is appalling. Sour grapes!
Dr. West you cannot concede to the lesser of evil!!!! Dr. West you’re on record as supportive of marriage equality for gays. So what is your message to gays? Only fight for equal rights in blue states where you know you can win and give up?
Woman’s rights, racial equality, and LGBT equality all started out as un-winnable battles. And that was before the internet age?
We must not be stuck on stupid voting for the 1party system of corporately controlled Democrats & Republicans of war, poverty, and erosion of civil liberties.
If you keep voting for the lesser of evil you’re in an abuser/victim cycle and it will NEVER get better.
Hold Obama’s feet to the fire? Yeah right. He says it’s ok to kill a US citizen if he wants. Open your eyes!
If you really want to hear someone take Obama to task, listen to Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report on Making Contact: http://www.prx.org/pieces/78999-obama-2012-the-lesser-evil#description

Smiley & West:
I will keep calling you out for doing the wrong thing so long as you continue to justify and make excuses for and avoid the topic of doing the right thing and voting for alternative political parties. I’ll bring it up at the next event and the next one until you do the right thing and denounce the 2prty system.
You’re better than this.
