Chris Rock: ‘The President is Our Boss…Our Dad’

Rock

Comedian Chris Rock, most known for his extensive and eloquent vocabulary most often centered around unique applications of four letter words, decided we needed a civics lesson from his own personal perspective after meeting with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-Constitution group.

According to Rock, the President is now the daddy to the nation, and we best do what dad says regarding gun control or there will be trouble:

My initial thoughts after viewing this was thank goodness for him there is a market for his filthy mouth because clearly he isn’t smart enough to otherwise survive on his own. And while he did to his credit manage to get a GED after what unarguably was a tough upbringing, he must have missed some of the very basics of civics which has served as the foundation of our Republic, and allowed it to survive in good times and bad.

Simple, basic concepts like how healthy discourse is essential in the democratic process, even if that discourse involves disagreement with our elected leaders up to and including the President. Or how our Constitution provides for all Americans certain inalienable rights, and while he and the President and Mayor Bloomberg may not like all the rights outlined in that Constitution (obviously the 2nd Amendment in the macro view, but apparently the 1st Amendment as well if we are to just be quiet and do what The Man says), but they are rights that shall not be infringed on whether they like it or not.

Last, and most poignant to Rock’s comments, the President is not the King or our daddy. Too many in our society may see the government as their parent to provide for their every need, but President is not that parent. We fought a War of Independence in order to break free of a Monarchy to form a government of, by and, for the People. People today who live in some of the worlds most oppressive societies, such as North Korea, regard their country’s leader as a parent and are forced to pay homage to them as such. If regarding the President as father is the way we are going, we have truly big problems ahead.

Oh, and Mr. Rock, did you regard George Bush as your father when he was in office, and give him the respect due the same? I suppose we could find the answer to that in some of your past comedy routines.

            I’m willing to bet that blacks are way better educated and have a way better standard of living after the Civil Rights movement than before. more blacks in universities and high-paying jobs than ever. You can thank liberalism for that.

            Obviously you haven’t been watching TV interviews of black athletes lately. These “student Athletes”, many of whom were forced, by the NCAA, to leave college early with partial degrees in Black history studies, playground fundamentals, the essentials of point guarding, and basket weaving, are great examples of what happens when one fails to send in their yearly contributions to the United Negro College fund and minds are lost.

          • chris

            Does this happen to every black student athlete, or only a few of them? Like all public and private programs dedicated to helping people out, there are success stories and there are stories of failure. Do not focus on the few people who didn’t benefit and then make the argument that the whole program is a failure.

            How do you explain their unemployment numbers?

          • chris

            First of all, it would be nice to see black unemployment numbers during the 1960s when the Civil Rights era began, or even earlier, however that data simply doesn’t exist, probably because blacks were still second-class citizens, but I’m willing to bet that the numbers were way worse than they are today. Then starting from 1972 until now, you can see in the popular graphs that black unemployment stays about double that of than white unemployment, and even higher during recessions. Right now black unemployment is around 14.5% while white unemployment is a little over 7.5%. Historically it’s not unusual to see this disparity, and I’m willing to bet that as we see the economy improve over time the black/white unemployment gap will get shorten again.

            Long story short, don’t blame Obama for a problem that has always existed.

        It has set up a system so that the likes of a 3rd world punk such as C.Rock looks to a Messianic Narcissistic 3rd world Punk figure that has no problem using drone attacks on US citizens…………as a “daddy”…….its even beyond “low information” or “free stuff”…….its pitifull watching people willingly sucume to essentially slavery.
        The problem is there is now a majority willing to accepts the Likes of Obama and his 3rd world outliook on ruleing (notice I didnt say governing)…….This same ilk will rip a Phil Mickleson, Will accept lies about a Sarah Palin, a Clarence Thomas…………..all becuase they are told to.

        • noblindersonme

          sbarklikearabiddog, no one tells me to attack a neocon, unlike your side that is prodded like a pit bull, into racist attacks . I only attack a political ‘leader’ when that individual proves they warranted that criticism with their behavior .
          When Bachman makes a ignorant statement about history , then I will rip her. When Palin does the same , I will rip her . I will call her ‘ a quitter’ not because I am told to do so , but because it is an accurate description of how she quit on her state !
          As for for Clarence Thomas, the whole truth will NEVER be told , so I guess YOU are just as quilty of accepting lies told about Anita Hill – arn’t you!!!
          If a democrat like John Edwards shames our nation ,I WILL RIP HIM! I don’t know what you are referring to about Mickelson , but if it is a personal attack on his personal life I will say that is wrong! All I know about his personal life is that he is a very loving husband who has suffered along with his wife through her cancer scare! We can pray for them. If he said something politically dumb , THEN I will rip him . You want to defend a guy like Gingrinch who dumped HIS wife when she had cancer and someone who says politically stupid things too, that is your stupid business!

            if you knew anything you’d realize that same concept applies here as when discussing the % of people who commit crimes. Blacks make up less of the population yet comment more of the crimes….but post more pictures if it helps you sleep at night….37 are born to white women, except there are more white people, whereas 26 are born to black women whereas the population is much lower …. next time I’ll bring crayons to explain it if that helps.

    WHILE PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA TAKES THE STAGE AT HIS 2ND INAUGURATION HE TALKS ABOUT OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE EVERYONE GETS THEIR “FAIR SHARE” AND A “FAIR SHOT”….

    IN GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZED HOUSING EVERYWHERE ACROSS AMERICA, PEOPLE ARE SITTING IN THEIR LIVING ROOMS WATCHING THE INAUGURATION ON THEIR BIG SCREEN T.V.’S AND CHEERING HIM ON….

    We felt like this was the perfect time to share this IMPORTANT story with you. Recently, our good friend Michael (a local realtor) shared his experience with Leisa and I about an “Obamasupporter” he encountered while showing homes to a low income, working family in Pontiac, MI.. We asked him to please write it down so we could share it with you. YOU SHOULD BE SITTING DOWN WHILE READING THIS:

    As a Realtor for the past 28 years I thought I’d seen or heard it all… Until now.
    I was showing homes in Pontiac, MI. one afternoon recently and showed up at a home at the 4:00 pm time my appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let us in and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the banks accepts less money than is owed on the home). After some chit-chat, she proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also lived in the area) were buying each other’s homes via the short-sale process. I mentioned to her that I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions. She smiled and said “We have two different last names so no one knows the difference”.
    She went on to tell us that each of them owed over 100K on their homes and were in the process of buying each other’s homes for about 10-15K cash. To top it off, they were each receiving $3,000.00 in government provided relocation assistance at the closing.

    My buyers and I were amazed that she was outright admitting to fraud and yet, she continued. She began to tell us that the best part of her scheme was that because they currently were not working that they (both) are now receiving Section 8 Vouchers. I said I thought those were for renters and she said “That’s the best part; me and my sister are going to be renting each other’s homes so we don’t even have to move, and Obama is going to give us each $800.00 a month to pay the rent!” She then picked up a picture she had framed of Obama and did a little happy dance around her living room and while she kissed the picture she was singing “Thank you Obama…. thank you Obama.”

    So here is the bottom line… Both of these scammers got at least $80,000.00 in debt forgiven, $3,000.00 in cash for relocation (when in fact they did not relocate) and to boot, you and I will now be paying (through our taxes) $1,600.00 in rent for each them each and every month…. perhaps forever!

    Is it any wonder why so many people have decided that all they have to do is VOTE for the Democrats and they will be taken care of for life at the expense of the taxpayers? I would not be at all surprised if they are receiving food stamps and whatever other programs are available for anyone who is willing to lie to get assistance.

    These women went from working and paying about $900.00 each in mortgage payments to staying home and getting paid $800.00 each per month to live in the same home they had been living in and all they had to do was lie on a few papers. This craziness has to stop! I’m sure this kind of fraud is going on each and every day all across the country and no one wants to touch the subject of entitlements because they might OFFEND someone or lose a vote or two.

    By the way… she had an almost new SUV in the driveway, three flat screen TV’s and a very nice computer set up in her living room which was furnished entirely with nice leather furniture.

    I’TS THE NEW ‘AMERICAN WAY’…..

    For all of the “do-gooder’s” who voted for Obama to help the less fortunate” ….CHEERS…..they are now the “most fortunate!” How’re things working out for you??

Rob Port -the man who last summer couldn’t whine loud enough that the debate over ‘civility in media’ was a direct attack on HIM ! remember how he took his thin skin to forums in Grand Forks and tried to put on a ‘face’ for the ‘media’ there with his phony tales about his ‘fairmindedness’ etc.
    yeah there is that port ‘taking the high road ‘ when he wants to appeal to the masses , and there is the real port who peruses the daily news scene and only seems to post stories that suit his needs and feed the angry mongrel dogs here.

    This week we saw the right instigate ‘jokes’ about first lady Michele , and her ( Gawd I hate to even type this in- (big butt),,,) . yeah there is a level of civilty that is sooo wonderfully wholesome in the neoconservative circles!!!! and it wasn’t just coming from the ignorant neanterdahl levels of GOP , it came from the ‘ comedians of the right like Rush Limbaugh! And what the hell difference is there between Rush and Chris Rock! Both really just say outrageous s** to provoke and ‘entertain ‘ their audiences! Rock does make no pretense about his being a ‘comedian ‘ while Rush always frames his gutter act into ‘Talent from god bullsh*t!’.
    Anyway, ‘shockers!!! , guess which story port chooses to highlight and post here!
    example # 12 ,235 in Say Anthing’s blog attempt to just throw the only kind of red meat his mongrel followers wil snap at!
    BTW mongrels – all this crap should cease ! No respectable liberal would tolerate personal attacks on a first lady. Smart ass sbark? did the left ever attack Laura Bush with such vileness ? No they didn’t ! ( and if one can dig up even the smallest incident of a cretin attacking Laura , I can asure 99% of liberals found it to be disgusting! Why does it seem OK with you guys? and guys- almost all attacks on Palin and Bachman etc, were ones of substantive policy! That is fair ground guys ! I attacked Palin for the ridiculous statements that came out of her mouth , her pol views, ( attacking fed spending all the while being very eager to accept that spending when her state got it, for instance). Never did I attack her motherhood or her looks !
    WHY why why is it Ok here ?
    and just scroll down and read the sab crowd and their’ intelligent?’ comments . Is this the civility in society you said you were so proud of Port!

      and to reply to rob’s query directly about Rock’s behavior with George Bush. I would bet a considerable sum Rock did slam Bush when he was Prez, and 99% of it was due to the war he probably had a lot of issues with!!! ( Bush did say the biggest failure of his term was not finding those wmd’s). and Rock probably kept his profane and harsh remarks restricted to that! Can you say that about the right today who seem to have no compuction about childish attacks on Michelle and Obama’s two girls! I remember attacks on Laura and the twins were very very rare, and I doubt Rock sunk that low!
      All first ladies have a pet project , a personal charity they focus on , I can’t even remember what Laura’s was , THAT”s how non- controverisal it was !! But the rabid angry right is just relentless with it’s attacks on Michele – HOW DARE SHE ASK AMERICANS TO EAT HEALTHY!!! you Rob, have lead such charges!
      Chris Rock -‘ you are a black kettle”, Rob Port -the pot’!

        I have no doubt that you remember attacks on Laura and the twins as being rare… Senility is a terrible thing.

        Speaking of senile, since when is force of law “asking”?

    Conceiving, carrying, and birthing, a baby must be more tedious, and painful, than having the flu x 50. Why, other than a profit motive, stupidity, or love, would a woman, willingly, put herself through such an ordeal, when there are so many ways to prevent pregnancy? Certainly, one wouldn’t become pregnant to masochistically experience the flu x 50 effects, would they?

    Hmmm….interesting theory he has there. George W. Bush was RBB, Hannitized & Sparkie Arbuckles dad. Who’d have guessed?

  • chris

    Only tin hat-wearing nut jobs like you would focus directly on his “dad” reference and find something sinister about it. The guy is a comedian, and he says funny and off-the-wall things. He even got some laughs out of his comments in spite of the seriousness of the topic.

    Well what do you know … Barack Obama is my daddy. Now this explains why I have thick curly hair. I’m a bi-racial. Holy Balls.

    Chris Rock utters Ngggr fifty times during a typical performance, Plus C-nt, Ho, Honky, Bitch, F–k, and his audiences, many who are black, think he’s cutting edge for doing so. Even the rogue cop killer thinks Rock is the cat’s meow, although he has attacked fellow officers for using the same word. I’m trying to think of a word I might call a Swede, for instance, that would cause him to attack, perhaps kill me, and damned if I can think of even one. I wonder if this phenomenon, the penchant to attack someone with lighter skin over a word of perceived disrespect, is also prevalent in the many nations of Africa? If so it would go a long way towards explaining their constant warring with their neighboring states.

    Many will attempt to explain what has caused the killing rage that has overtaken the rogue cop in California. Here, I believe, is a simple explanation for his killing spree. If you had been saddled with the name Christopher Jordan Dorner, when all your friends, and acquaintances, were named Tavaris, Tashad, Leodis, Jarius, Kheeston, Crezdon, or even Jorvorskie, you’d feel ostracized from your peers, also. And really, wouldn’t thirty three years of constant ridicule for their non Africanized name be enough to send any like minded person over the cliff? You’re welcome…

    Chris is simply speaking his mind.

    Soon the Academy Awards will be upon us and, once again, there will be efforts made, by Hollywood’s elite, to lavish prizes upon this, or that, black actor, actress, songwriter, or singer. The topic, that of black talent, has recently arisen because of remarks made by Chris Rock, and the extremely talented, Jamie Foxx. This years nominees will, ostensibly, be honored for their excellence in movie making when, in reality, they’re being honored, primarily because of their skin color and, liberalism being what it is, their race must never be allowed to feel left out, or ignored. The same vacuous sentiments were at work in awarding the Nobel Peace prize to Barack H. Obama, but I digress, It strikes me as odd, but I suppose his “Troubles” had something to do with it, that the quite talented, O.J. Simpson has never been honored. Surely his work in “The Towering Inferno”, and his uncredited, but equally stirring, real life trial scenes, are enough to warrant a lifetime award. His award, fashioned from Mercury rather than Gold to, more easily facilitate passage through bars, would be a fitting tribute to his memorable acting abilities, and suitcase hurdling prowess.
