declares national emergency, compares Obama to Hitler, barfs up debunked
claims, endorses McCain. Oh, and he’s not a racist.
By Randy Harward
For reasons ranging from insubstantial-yet-cool to somewhat
noteworthy-throwing raw meat at their fans, covering The Who without sucking, releasing
at least three classic metal albums, bucking censorship lynch mob the PMRC, just
plain rocking balls-W.A.S.P. rules. But band founder and frontman (and erstwhile New York Doll) Blackie
Lawless, is a stone cold, mouth-breathing, egomaniacal, pseudo-intellectual
Today he had his publicist send out a letter titled, “Read
in Case of National Emergency.” The title alone is ridiculous, but with each
line it gets-one would think, impossibly-more retarded.
One needs not expend the energy to ignore the fact that, in
an actual national emergency, the last guy we’d turn to is the singer of a
shock-rock band that peaked early and exists now as an ego boost to its
increasingly unreliable and unhinged sole original member. That much is
forgotten one or two paragraphs into the idiotic epistle. By the end, the jaw
of any sentient being with at least a GED will scrape the toes of their shoes.
Lawless declares his love for the country and Constitution,
and that he’s not a John McCain supporter-he’s an equal opportunity
government-hater, suspicious of Democrats and Republicans alike.
“I grew up and lived with the ideals and philosophy of the
‘counterculture’ generation,” writes Lawless. ‘Peace and Love’, ‘Flower Power’,
‘Stop the War’, ‘Never Trust Anybody Over 30′. ‘Stop the War’ was absolutely
correct! Vietnam was a disaster and more than 50,000 U. S. soldiers died for
that mistake. But the rest was a load of naïve, idealist, ‘we can change the
world’ CRAP! Not that some of those sentiments weren’t a good idea. It’s just
that this generation of self-serving, selfish, spoiled brats has now come of
Lawless henceforth blames these “brats” for perpetuating
“the greed and the lies of the Wall Street bailout and a laundry list of other
political atrocities too numerous to
mention [emphasis added].” He also says they probably think the founding
fathers are “some new rap group,” calling that “an indictment on their parents”
for not teaching them “the values and history of this nation.”
He then bemoans Americans’ gluttonous, vain, financially
irresponsible lifestyles, and how the people who touted the “Woodstock/Marxist
scream-dream”-who he refers to as “yuppies” (weren’t they largely Reaganites?)-are
the ones in charge of the extremely biased liberal media that has “conspired to
deceive, manipulate, suppress the truth, promote their candidate at all costs
and bury any story that does not put a halo around the head of that
candidate.” You know the candidate of which he speaks, but Blackie spells
it out for us. “It is with this that the American People are brought Barak
To support his Obama paranoia, Lawless proceeds to fall back
on debunked, or at least satisfactorily addressed, theories including but not
limited to how Obama’s “redistribution of wealth” comments (“he is a Marxist in
Socialist clothing”), and has supposed terrorist ties. ACORN, Rev. Wright/America-hating,
tax increases, etc.
“This man is a product of that extreme leftist-Marxist movement
that has been building in this country for over 40 years. He is a product of
the Harvard far left. He is the face and mouthpiece of a movement that is hell-bent
on breaking up the U. S. Constitution and reassembling it to conform to their
vision. He is a lawyer, the Democratic Johnnie Cochran, in which every time he
speaks gives a closing argument. He is the embodiment of the New Democratic
“Never in the history of the United States has any presidential candidate had a
shroud of controversy surround them as has Obama. If someone would have told me
two years ago that anybody with these associations could get nominated for
their party, or even dog catcher, much less President of the United States, I
would have said your [sic] insane.”
Speaking of! Lawless explains that the reason he started
this letter with the first seven words of the Constitution is “to reference a
radio interview Obama did in which he says the U. S. Supreme Court did not go
far enough in attempting to provide reparations to African-Americans and that
the Earl Warren edition of the Supreme Court was not liberal enough. That Court
was probably the most liberal in U.S. history.” Lawless says that “life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is “not a guarantee of wealth or any form
of happiness, but the chance to raise one-self up” and “this government never
has, nor ever will, nor ever should provide for anything more than this.
“It is ironic that Obama’s supporters so often refer to him
as a new John F. Kennedy. Senator Obama should be reminded that it was JFK…
that said ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for
you country.’ That is the true American spirit!
“[Obama supporters’] belief is win… at any cost… the
Constitution be Dammed [sic]! If that’s not prejudice, I don’t know what is. If
it is true that ‘What is past, is prologue’ then we need look no further than
Obama’s books. His blueprint is there in black and white. Literally and
Uh…wow. But it gets better. Or worse:
“The books Obama has written about himself are very clear as
to his true ambitions concerning his leftist, Marxist views but the average
person will not take the time to read them. In the 1920s while in prison, a
young Adolf Hitler wrote Mein Kampf… which
outlined his entire plan for world domination and the extermination of the
Jewish race. No one would read it, and then when they did it was too late… any
book that was not approved by the Nazi Party was burned. The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx at one
time was required reading in our schools. This book is Obama’s ‘how-to’ guide
with his ideal of the ‘redistribution of wealth’… Somewhere Karl Marx with his godless,
utopian vision is laughing in delight.”
It’s not like we expect Blackie Lawless to be a fountain of
wisdom. It’s just that the hubris, the undiluted delusion of this letter, is
astonishing. Lawless-who plays a guitar adorned with the Confederate flag, just
like many other “undecided” voters, is simply justifying his latent racism. It
can’t be because he’s made an informed decision based on both candidates’ stances or qualifications ‘cause all he has to say
about McCain is:
“I will vote for McCain, not because I believe in all he
stands for, but as a mandate against Obama, to keep him from becoming president.”
[You can read the entire letter below. Wouldn’t want him to
be able to say we took him out of context.]

by Blackie Lawless
“We the people of the United States’. These are the first 7 words of the
Constitution of the United States of America. As I stood in the reception area
of the Pentagon in Washington D.C. early this year, a large recreation of that
Constitution was posted on the wall. It’s the first thing you see as you enter
the building. “We the People of the United States”, I stared at it
and said: “I’d die for that idea”!
I’ve written in the past, I love my country, but I’m scared to death of its
government. That idea for me has taken a new twist in this coming election.
I’d first like to point out that I am not a John McCain supporter. I have been
critical of the U. S. Government for years, and I, like most of my fellow
Americans am angry and frustrated with the lying, manipulation and partisanship
of the elected officials, both local and national, Democrat and Republican, of
The Founding Fathers of this Country wrote this Constitution, with all it’s
Amendments, as THE Cornerstone that this country would be governed by. We
Americans now find ourselves on the eve of, without a doubt, THE most important
election of our lifetime. In a time of World uncertainty, the volatility
of the global financial Markets, the Middle East at war, Russia invading
Georgia, Iran and North Korea attempting to develop nuclear weapons and with that
Iran threatening to “Wipe Israel Off the Map”, the entire world is at
a dangerous point in history.
I grew up and lived with the ideals and philosophy of the “Counter
Culture” Generation. “Peace and Love”, ” Flower
Power”, “Stop the War”, Never Trust anybody Over 30″.
“Stop the War” was absolutely correct! Vietnam was a disaster
and more than 50,000 U. S. Soldiers died for that mistake.
But the rest was a load of naïve, idealist, “we can change the
Not that some of those sentiments weren’t a good idea. It’s just that this
generation of self-serving, selfish, spoiled brats has now come of age. They
are the ones that now have perpetuated the greed and the lies of the Wall
Street Bailout and a laundry list of other political atrocities too numerous to
mention. The weakness of true conviction to teach their children about the
values and history of this Nation. Their children know nothing of Thomas
Jefferson, John Adams, Washington, Lincoln or the understanding that this Great
Nation was built on the Dreams, the Tears, the back breaking Labor, the
unending sacrifice and the Blood spilled by the generations before them that
sacrificed their all, including the men and women that gave their lives, and
the ones that will give their lives in defense of this “Great
Experiment”, this Great American Dream. If you don’t think so, go up
to most any of their kids on the street and ask them about the Founding
Fathers. More than likely they’ll think its some new rap group. It’s not just a
glimpse into poor enlightenment. It’s an indictment on their parents.
The generation that was going to change the world certainly did. Their gluttony
for botox, living on credit cards, busy being fabulous and its all about me,
me, me cause I’m better than you. “All You Need is Love”.. I’m sorry
pal, you missed the boat, all you really need is some guts and character. I’m
disgusted and ashamed to be part of it. Instead, that generation with
their ‘Woodstock / Marxist” Scream – Dream are the ones which now control
the majority of the mainstream media in this country. That includes almost all
Television and almost all Newspapers. They are the ones that now bring the
extreme liberal, radical 60’s utopian vision of their world to the American
people. The extreme liberal bias of the mainstream American Media which are now
controlled by these “Yuppies” have conspired to deceive, manipulate,
suppress the truth, promote their candidate at all costs and bury any story
that does not put a halo around the head of that candidate. It is with this
that the American People are brought Barak Obama.
This man is a product of that Extreme Leftist – Marxist movement that has been
building in this country for over 40 years. He is a product of the Harvard far
left. He is the face and mouthpiece of a movement that is Hell Bent on breaking
up the U. S. Constitution and reassembling it to conform to their vision. He is
a lawyer, the Democratic Johnny Cochran, in which every time he speaks gives a
closing argument. He is the embodiment of the New Democratic Machine.
When I was a kid everyone I knew were Democrats, but these are not your fathers
Democrats anymore. They are part of some liberal elite that looks down on the
ideals that made this Country great. This Leftist Machine has hidden the
truth from the American People (and the World) and continues to deceive at any
Right now, as I write, the L. A. Times Newspaper has a videotape, which it
refuses to release to the American Public, which shows Obama at a farewell
dinner celebration for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Spokesman
Rashid Khalidi. He was also a spokesman for Yassir Arafat. In this tape are the
recorded verbal attacks on Israel and the Israeli People and reference to
Israel as a terrorist state.
Reportedly, the Domestic terrorist Bill Ayres, who as part of the “Weather
Underground” terrorist organization bombed several U. S. targets including
the Pentagon and the home of a U. S. Judge and killing 2 policemen in the
process, was also at this dinner. Obama has been close friends with
Khalidi and Ayers for many years. The oath of President requires that the
President will “protect the United States against all enemies, both
Foreign AND Domestic”. Guess he didn’t read that part!
Now, what should be of utmost concern to the American People are the repeated
denials by Obama, that he has no ties to any of these people. If he has nothing
to hide why not be truthful with the American Public and request the L. A.
Times to release this videotape for us all to see. If it turns out to be
nothing then at least the truth will be served. From Obama’s 20 year
association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright who has repeatedly said:
“It’s not God Bless America, No, No, No, It’s God Damn America!
Obama sat in Wrights church and listened to this Treason for 20 years.
Wright also performed Obama’s marriage and Baptized both of his children. Obama
was an organizer for Acorn, the group now accused of massive voter registration
fraud. Some working for Acorn have already been jailed for this. Obama was also
Acorns lawyer for a time. Obama recently donated over $800,000 to Acorn.
He accuses Americans for “clinging to their guns and religion”.
Never in the history of the United States has any Presidential candidate had a
shroud of controversy surround them as has Obama. If someone would have told me
2 years ago that anybody with these associations could get nominated for their
party, or even dog catcher, much less President of the United States, I would
have said your insane.
My reasons for starting this letter with the first line of the Constitution is
to reference a radio interview Obama did in which he says the U. S. Supreme
Court did not go far enough in attempting to provide reparations to African-
Americans and that the Earl Warren edition of the Supreme Court was not liberal
enough. That Court was probably the most liberal in U.S. history.
It is not the job of the Supreme Court to be liberal or conservative. It is to
interpret the Constitution. period. It is not to legislate from the bench based
on the “general consensus of the people” as stated in a recent
Supreme Court ruling, but rather to make its rulings based on the precise
wording of the Constitution. If at some point “the people” wish to
have any new amendment to the Constitution based on their modern day ideals,
then all 50 states must ratify it..period. This is the Obama quote from
that interview with radio station WBEZ.FM in Chicago. This is not taken out of
context. It is the entire quote:
“The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of
wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in
society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the
Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential
constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at
least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way,
that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what
the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you,
but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your
behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil
rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court
focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and
community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together
the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive
change. In some ways we still suffer from that”.
These are things he would NEVER say in front of a national audience. He only
says and does these things when he thinks his base group is listening. In this
interview he is making it clear that if elected, he would nominate Supreme
Court Justices that will put forth his agenda’s, “redistribution of
wealth”, his idea of “economic justice” and “redistributive
change” which are other words for reparations for slavery and a Marxist
redistribution of wealth which is no more than welfare.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in The Declaration of Independence about ‘Life, Liberty
and the PURSUIT of Happiness. This PURSUIT is not a guarantee of wealth or any
form of happiness, but the chance to raise one-self up. This government never
has, nor ever will, nor ever should provide for anything more than this.
It is ironic that Obama’s supporters so often refer to him as a new John F.
Senator Obama should be reminded that it was JFK in his inaugural address that
said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for
you country”. That is the TRUE American Spirit!
On the issue of taxes, in effort to “spread the wealth around” he
first defined the rich as making $300,000 then he said it was $250,000 then he
said $200,000, then a few days ago Joe Biden said it would be $150,000. So,
what’s the real number? This is more about him not being truthful with
Will all of his tax schemes of taxing anyone who makes over $250,000 (or
whatever it is) a year destroy our economy, yeah, just like Jimmy Carter did in
the 70’s and Herbert Hoover before him. It’s not the individual that makes that
much money that’s the issue. If this were only about individuals then that
could be argued. But what he doesn’t tell you is what it does to
businesses. Most any business that creates that much revenue MUST employ a
number of people. If the business is taxed upwards of 30% or more then those
jobs are gone.its that simple.
There have been a lot of charges about racism in this election from the Obama
side. I personally have never been a racist. Any of you that know me, know I’ve
said many times that after my Father, Muhammad Ali has been the biggest
influence in my life. But there definitely is racism in this election.
96 to 97% of African-Americans polled in this election say they will vote for
Obama. Never in the history of this country has ANY candidate ever had such
overwhelming numbers from any group. White, Black, Hispanic, Asian or other.
The traveling Political, Racist, Circus called Acorn, which Obama worked
with for years, is creating and sponsoring voter fraud across the country by
registering illegal immigrants, the Dallas Cowboys and Mickey Mouse. This is no
joke. Acorn has actually done this and much, much more. Their belief is win ..
at any cost.. the Constitution be Dammed!
If that’s not prejudice, I don’t know what is.
The books Obama has written about himself are very clear as to his true
ambitions concerning his Leftist, Marxist views but the average person will not
take the time to read them, In the 1920’s while in prison, a young Adolf
Hitler wrote “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) which outlined his entire
plan for World Domination and the extermination of the Jewish race. No one would
read it, and then when they did it was too late.. any book that was not
approved by the Nazi Party was burned. The “Communist Manifesto” by
Karl Marx at one time, was required reading in our schools. This book is
Obama’s “How To” guide with his ideal of the “Redistribution of
Wealth”. If you don’t think so, go back and look at the above radio
interview. Somewhere Karl Marx with his Godless, Utopian vision is laughing in
If it is true that “What is Past, is Prologue” then we need look no
further than Obama’s books. His blueprint is there in black and white.
Literally and figuratively.
I will vote for McCain, not because I believe in all he stands for, but as a
mandate against Obama, to keep him from becoming President. Yes, I will
cling to my guns and my religion, and continue to believe in the Constitution,
the Cornerstone of our society and trust that this is STILL a “Government
of the People, By the People, For the People”.
The point of all this is, that no matter whatever any of us encounter in life,
look for the truth. The truth can and will stand up to anything. If that truth
cannot stand up to scrutiny then you must see it and call it for what it truly
is. If any would be Messiah comes along and he looks like it, acts like
it and smells like it then you call him what he truly is. a Marxist, in
I challenge all Americans to go back and READ the Constitution of the United
States, READ the Declaration of Independence.

God Help Us. . God Bless America
