Who’s Your Daddy?

I guess Chris Rock was supposed to be using his celebrity to seriously promote and advance President Obama’s gun controlling proclivities, but surely he must have been trying out a new comedy act. Like many liberals, Rock simply doesn’t get it. The President of the United States is not our daddy, as he asserted today. Nor is the First Lady our mama. The President is also not our boss. The reverse is actually true; presidents are elected to represent–to serve–the people. As American patriots well know, we the people are not going to blindly follow a politician, for that’s the stuff cults are made of.

Chris Rock said:

The President of the United States is, you know, our boss. But he is also, you know…the President and the First Lady are kinda like the mom and dad of the country. And when your dad says something, you listen. And when you don’t, it will usually bite you in the ass later on. So, I’m here to support the President.

In all fairness to the comedian, he didn’t have a clear mind while making those comments; he was under the influence–of Kool Aid. It’s interesting that he wasn’t so committed to "honour[ing] thy father and thy mother" when President Bush occupied Pennsylvania Avenue. But I digress.

I respect Americans who understand the proper role of government–who support liberty, not liberals. For that matter, I don’t have much respect for those who support so-called conservatives over common sense either. As far as I can see, there’s not a more consistent voice for liberty than Governor Palin. We need her, and other like-minded people, to continue that stand for our nation because, unfortunately, more and more people are starting to think like Chris Rock. What a joke. But it ain’t funny.

Chris Rock can keep his daddy; I’ll stick with our Founding Fathers.

    I used to like Chris Rock.  He used to make some hilarious points about the education, welfare, crime and other issues. 

    Now, he’s just another Obamaphile. It’s clear that color matters more to him that substance.  And had Romney been elected, I seriously doubt he would have said that Mitt and Ann Romney should be treated like America’s parents.

    I’m absolutely flabbergasted because this sounds to me like voluntary servitude.  And to hear it come from an African-American, the very people who were slaves, who had masters, who were "taken care of" by the master.  If the world made sense, no group would embrace personal freedom more tightly than African-Americans.  No people would protect their self-autonomy more than African-Americans.

    It just boggles the mind.

    • Adrienne Ross

      You make excellent points, conservativemama. But there’s also a certain "loyalty" that resides within the black community, and that’s what we’re seeing a lot of with this President and his fan base.

      • conservativemama

        Yes, you’re right, but it breaks my heart because this lousy economy is hurting African-Americans more than any other group.  And for those who were moving into the middle class, home ownership and the like, they’ve had their standard of living wiped out with the housing crisis.

        What will be interesting to see is what happens after Obama?  The next president probably will not be an African-American. What happens with the African-American vote? I mean, I know it will go for the Democrat, but how strongly?

        As for the antidote, Dr. Carson’s speech earlier today, with President Obama on the dais. Fantastic.

    The only ROCK around here for me is YOU, Adrienne!

    (as in You Rock!)

    Love posts like these.

    • Adrienne Ross

      Wow! Thanks for such a kind comment, Isabel!

  • Norcalo

    This is some sort of idolatry.

  • Steve_Flesher

    Sad that you have to point out something which should be so obvious but once again you do a wonderful service to liberty and the Governor.  Thanks, Adrienne!

  • mymati

    To me this is very interesting, I can look back at the writings of Bastiat and he speaks of exactly this kind of pressing of the socialist agenda from the "stars" of his day, political writers that proped up the ideas of socialism but kept themselves in a separate class. I swear Bastiat could have been writing about our own troubles except that he lived 160+ years ago. If you have not read "The Law" you can read it here it is well worth the time.

      Hi MM, It’s Billy :)

  • Suki Pero

    Adrienne, I really appreciate how clearly and simply you summed up this entire Chris Rock statement.  It borders on some type of cult and blind following that I absolutely do not get or understand.

  • n4cerinc

    Thank you for posting this, Adrienne. "In all fairness to the comedian, he didn’t have a clear mind while making those comments; he was under the influence–of Kool Aid"<- Understood, we will go easy on him. lol. 

  • cudaforever

    Thanks Adrienne, well-said !! I like the part where you said he is under the influence of KOOL-AID :) He ai’nt my Daddy or my boss that’s for sure. I already have both of those :)

    Michelle Malkin has an interesting observation…

    “That was a bizarre little appearance there,” Malkin said. “It looked like a hostage video to me.

    She went on: “Maybe it’s dawning on him
    in some sector of his brain that this is not good for his career…”

    Chris ROCK-Head :) His head seems full of rocks!!

  • DocBarry1

    chris rock comments is another example of his comedy – u don’t take him serious – if his words were meant as his feelings then he can keep them – I want none of it

    • Adrienne Ross

      Doc, he wasn’t trying to be comical. He was serious. If you haven’t seen the clip, check it out.

      • DocBarry1

        THANKS -I just did and you are right – how sad, he is out of his mind

  • Mr.L

    Liz MacDonald of Fox Business said this yesterday about Chris Rock’s dopey comment that Obama is the "Dad" of the country: "Richard Pryor is screaming from the afterlife after hearing that. Obama is not my Dad, he is my employee–he works for all of us and if he was really a "Dad" he’d get on a budget just like most middle class Dads across the USA are forced to do in these times."

  • Patriot41

    How wonderful it would be if we had the same caliber of leaders today, that we reflect upon in the days of our founding fathers.  We do have such people in this nation today, but they are looked upon with scorn, because of their love for this nation, respect for our Creator and the morals and ethical guidance that He provided for mankind.

    Rock can have his supposed mother and dad in the White House, I will take the Father in Heaven and my mother country as the founders intended.

  • MaMcGriz

    This latest display by mr. rock shows more money than brains, more hubris than class, and more racism than loyalty.

    Good work, Adrienne. Thank you.

  • Jthom26837

     Great piece you wrote, Adrienne. I definitely was wrong back when I was a young bone head at the time. Actors and actresses are people too. Unfortunately, they like to go for the things that make our lives harder. Chris Rock is a good example. President Obama and his wife, Michelle are not our bosses, it’s the other way around.

     I Stand with Sarah Palin!!

    • cudaforever

      Except for Chris Rock is 48 :)
