Jesus was a Community Organizer – Pontius Pilate was a Governor!!

During the Republicans’ wretched convention they launched a foolish attack against Barack Obama’s experience as a community organizer.  Response to these ignorant tirades has included reactions from those who have worked their whole lives to help the less advantaged – namely community organizers.  Why would the Republicans spend a whole night of their convention attacking ordinary people?  With the nation watching, the Republicans mocked, dismissed, and actually laughed out loud at Americans who engage in community service and organizing.

During my Ph.D. program in Rural Sociology I studied community development (organization).  During the past two decades I have worked with groups of farmers, citizens and others to organize their efforts to make improvements in environmental quality, economic development, and social justice.  These are clearly the types of efforts we need to give a higher priority if we really want to improve our nation and the world.  In this article I document the reaction to this attack on community organizers and explain the kinds of important work that they do.  It will also be clear why Barack’s experience as a community organizer will be the key to  success his of his GRASS ROOTS campaignin November.

Rednecks Have Run America For Far Too Long!!

(NOTE:  This was written before Barack Obama became president.  See Update below)

The pollsters and pundits have “discovered” a class of people living in America that will never vote for Barack Obama. These Clinton voters are described as “white, low-income, rural, and poorly educated.” There is a simple term for such people – REDNECKS. This article exposes their blatant racism, male chauvinism, and other forms of backward thinking. They have been the guerrilla fighters of the culture wars on the side of the right wing fundamentalists.

Best advice to Obama is to ignore them – as we all should. They are a useless vestage of a past filled with hatred and fear. It has become “campy” to laugh at jokes about “You might be a redneck if.” So keep reading to LOL about the rednecks that are stuck in the mud and the past. It is time for the hippies to take back control of our culture and world from the rednecks – before it is too late!!  Be sure to read:  Your Vice President Might be a Redneck If: This exposes the real rednecks in Sarah Palin’s family and entourage.
