Detroit Councilwoman to Obama: We Voted for You, Now Bail Us Out

My Fox Detroit, December 5, 2012

The city of Detroit faces a major financialcrisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.

City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. {snip}

“Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that,” said Watson. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”

Nearly 75 percent of Wayne County voters pulled the lever for Obama in November.

“After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. He came home with some bacon,” said Watson. “That’s what you do.”

    Total IQ for the Detroit City Council…

    9 members x 70 = 630.


    Why does this scene remind me of a scene from BIRTH OF A NATION?

    All that is missing is the banana.

    This is so sad it is almost funny except it is the future and it is suicide.

    • The__Bobster

      Did they have their shoeless, two-toned feet on their desks?

  • You Are Now Enriched

    Any White students who bring up in class this enlightening and enriching development in afrovoodoo Diversity politics will be deemed a hate filled Ku Klux racist, unless, of course, they do so in a way that blames White privilege.

    If they display changed attitudes and corrected behaviour, they will be given a social justice achievement award for having “come far”.

  • Obama still would have won Michigan backing out Wayne County. But Flint and a few other Michigan cities have a lot of blacks, too.

  • The__Bobster

    Glad to see the mindset of the typical Bantu right out in the open. They don’t even try to hide their motivation anymore. You vote to steal YT’s stuff.

    • Yorkshireman.

      I do believe it is illegal to buy votes in USA, But surely this is exactly what happened. On the other hand, if this what actually happened, there is recourse under the miss-selling act to insist on compensation from the seller to the buyer for misrepresenting what was offered on the assumption that it was genuine.

  • So CAL Snowman

    I wonder what would happen if the people of Austin, TX had said to Bush, “you won, we voted for you, now pay us.”

    • Strider73

      Austin is a liberal Democrat town, but unlike “Detoilet” it isn’t an open sewer.

    • Yorkshireman.

      This may, at face value, nothing to do with this post. But I offer, for discussion, the latest proposal by the UK government to offer two billion UK pounds to provide wind turbine farms to Uganda in order to supply green electrical energy to that failed African nation.where child soldiers are recruited, boosted by drugs and armed with AK47 weapons in order to bring black democracy to a totally black country. Now compare that with Detroit,


      If they are Black, then it is only normal.

      If they are Mexicans, then it is only normal

      If they are White, then they are racists pigs fat hate filled honkey whiteass RACISSSSST.

  • Jefferson

    Wayne County also has some very White suburbs with very few Blacks, like Livonia for example. Did most Whites in Livonia also vote for the Kenyan as well ? If the answer is yes, than Livonia suffers from the White guilt disease big time.

    • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

      Whether they also voted for him or not, you can bet the residents of these White suburbs are preying for this bail-out. The alternative is, they are set upon by the North American pavement apes of Detroilet.

  • NYB

    It’s a slippery slope. If Washington pays Detroit’s bills one time, they can hardly say no to Detroit’s inevitable next crisis.

    Any municipality with a budget shortfall could then invoke the ‘Detroit precedent’, and the U.S. becomes ‘welfare nation.’

    • Günter

      It already is.

    • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

      oops…too late

  • HamletsGhost

    Blacks have a cargo-cult mindset. They see voting as praying for goodies from their big chief in Washington, to come flying in on Air Fo’ce One to hand over a big fat check just in time for Christmas.

    The sad thing is, it actually might happen.

    • StillModerated

      The Ford reference was worthy of extra credit. Headline: Obama to Detroilet: DROP DEAD!!!!

  • Guest

    I hope Obama does bail out “her people.” It would be good for whites to see our black president directly transferring millions of our tax dollars to black ghettoland Detroit. One large welfare check.

    • Günter

      Like our leaders haven’t already transferred trillions to black ghettoland over the past 50 years? While we did nothing about it, or even cheered them on? Obama will have no trouble at all throwing more money at Detroit. Taking money from the productive and industrious and dumping it into the bottomless hole of transfer payments to the welfare class was exactly what he was elected to do.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        He’ll have no trouble at all, except there’s no Constitutional authority for him to do so. If congress doesn’t appropriate the money, our First Shoe Shine Boy is stuck like Chuck.

    • Joseph

      Naw, if spending did somehow come out they’d come up with one of those comparisons where they would dilute the cost out over as many people as possible, like the entire population of Detroit so it is as close as possible to dividing by infinity and say “It amounts to less than the cost of a new shirt per day to bring hope and change to a near-homeless child.”

      The money for all of these appeals to the gullible and good-hearted or guilty whites will be spent almost entirely on sham distribution organizations and program administrators (community organizer comes to mind) and any benefits which go to a “family in need” end up feeding something like Flo-tilla who was speaking in the video, or lotto tickets. We have guys here who go down to the mission and get their free breakfast and whatnot then try to sell the stuff to folks riding the bus and I’m guessing they are not using the anticipated proceeds for college tuition.

      Whites have been bombarded by this for so long- it is like the people who walk downtown and just hand over a buck to the pan-handlers so they can be left in peace. They don’t even pay attention anymore. It is just part of the way things work now like gravity or sunlight.

  • Joseph U

    The last thing this planetoid needs is some more bacon.

  • If you ask me, bailing out Detroit would be like throwing money into a hole.


      Good thing you didn’t say a “black hole”. To many puns intended.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    I’ll be happy to see DeToilet paid.

    Will they take fire, fusion and steel, or do they prefer lead?

  • shmo123

    The only question I have is: What is there in Detroit worth saving?


      They are not interested in Detroit. They each want a welfare check. They could not care less about the city. The “city” is just an excuse to get a welfare check. The City be Damned. In fact, the more stinkin the City, the more they will get.

  • Tom in MI

    Bacon to go with her ham hocks?

      Big black women always have food on their mind.

      and black-eyed peas, turnip greens, and Schlitz Malt Liquor.

    Gimme dat ting gimmedat gimme gimme gimme dat ting oh yeah!

    What a load oxygen wasters. Bring home da bacon, indeed. I can hardly wait for Little Smoking Emperor Barry to announce that we’re broke. No more money, peoples

    • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

      Sadly barry and his merry band of fellow bantus believe we’ll never be broke as long as the treasury has ink and paper.

  • MadMax

    Here’s a hood produced exposé on Detroit:

    It’s good for a few laughs.

  • David M.

    The gangsta council wants their God, the Thief-in-Chief- Obama, to take money from the productive class and hand it over to the non-producers. How truly typical.

  • Günter

    I’m sure they’ve had contact with Obama on this for a long time. They know it would look bad if he bailed them out immediately, so they’ll put on a show that Detroit’s looking everywhere for a way out, and doing everything it can to make it on its own. Then, finally, right when Detroit’s on the precipice of bankruptcy, Obama will magically come through with an aid package. They might even stall it for a little longer, for example, find a way for Detroit to get some of the state money they’re owed without complying with the existing consent decree like they’re supposed to. Then Obama will step in after that money’s gone.

    It’s an absolute certainty that Obama will bail them out. This is the kind of thing that he does, this is exactly the kind of redistribution of wealth that he’s all about.


      So many stupid White people didn’t pay attention.

      Obama is a Community Activist. He admits it. Even the main media said it over and over.

      “Community” is African code for “our race and our race only”. Obama is doing everything he can for his race and his race only.

      This is no surprise to intelligent smart White men like me. But I am rare.

      • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

        You’re right “community” is one of Obama’s code words for “our race and our race only”… the other is his constant use of, “the American people.”

  • Detroit = De-toilet…

  • Michael_C_Scott

    Watson is a city council member but still does not understand how government works. Spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives; President Oogabooga does not have dictatorial fiat power to spend tax money that the House and Senate have not yet approved and allocated.

    Perhaps DeToilet could try and sell some municipal bonds. I’m sure a few of the investors who trusted Bernie Madoff would be dim-witted enough to purchase them.

    • Or, Oogabooga could order it by fiat, and watch Mr. Useful as a Teat on a Bull cry and fall all over himself negotiating with himself and cry some more while he figures out how much of it he should concede.

      Obama makes himself a Fuhrer, Boehner proposes an alternative plan to phase it in over five years.

  • Webtruths

    Why spend even a moments concern on a demographic that votes for you at near 100% rates already? Obama would rather court the Mexicans or any other race that despises white America.
