Cynthia McKinney Scores Major Endorsement

Lest we forget, there are other people running for the Presidency besides Messrs. Obama, McCain and Mrs. Rodham-Clinton.

And, indeed, Green Party candidate McKinney has just received her first major endorsement, as is proudly noted on her campaign’s website:

Welcome To Our President Cynthia McKinney

18 May 6248 KMT/2008
Greetings of IMANI (FAITH) President McKinney:

May our Divine Creator and Beloved Ancestors find you and the extended family in the best of spirit and health. Welcome back to the land of the original OHLONE people, to what is currently called the “california bay area.”

It is so disappointing not to be able to greet you personally this weekend—when WE are commemorating the birthdays of freedom fighters EL HAJJ MALIK EL SHABAZZ (Brother Minister Malcolm X), Mother Yuri Kochiyama and HO CHI MINH—due to a previously-scheduled family commitment.

However, it was a pleasure to speak to you briefly after the Green Party presidential candidates’ debate here in January; and, at our march and rally commemorating International Workers’ Day on the First of May.

Like thousands of other activists around the “united capitalist prison states of america (u.c.p.s.a.)” and our world, i want to applaud you for your decades of advocacy and action for truth, justice, reparations, human rights, democracy and peace. As a union organizer in chicago, new york city and the bay area, WE always knew that you, as a member of congress, had our backs on issues from living wages to struggling against the oppressive “welfare reform” and “free trade” agreements.

While a leader in our movements for self-determination and reparations, you consistently worked with us to build a powerful united front of Afrikan people (and supporters) here in the u.c.p.s.a. and around our Diaspora to begin challenging the imperialist governments and corporations which accumulate(d) their unjust riches by super-exploiting the labor and land of enslaved and imprisoned workers.

WE are all so proud that you stood tall and proud, even though mostly alone in the congress, in demanding the release of and amnesty for our hundreds of imprisoned and exiled Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, Republic of New Afrika, Black Liberation Army, American Indian Movement and Puerto Rican independence political leaders, and called for hearings on the repressive “counter intelligence (sic) programs” past and present.

Having lost 155 members of the community/labor alliance that i led in new york, and another 12 members of our N’COBRA, it was you who rightfully and righteously called for a full examination of the role of the fascist regime of Cheney/Bush in the events leading up to, during and following 11 September 6241/2001. And, justice-loving people around the world were extremely encouraged that you introduced impeachment proceedings to expose the continuing crimes against humanity perpetrated by Cheney/Bush and corrupt republican and democratic party officials.

All that said, you have always inspired us. That is why WE have traveled down to georgia to work for your re-elections in past years; and are supporting your current candidacy. Your platform offers all of our movements—for reparations, freedom for political prisoners, workers’ rights, peace, true democracy, justice for the victims of the Cheney/Bush “hurricanes” and floods, immigrant rights, etc.—real hope and an alternative to the corporate republican and democratic parties.

And, as i have been expressing to my family, friends, co-workers, extended networks and in my articles, WE do indeed have an opportunity to work for the election of both a person of integrity who is also of Afrikan ancestry and a woman. No, not Senator Barack Obama, a former community organizing colleague and friend; or another former chicagoan, Senator Hillary Clinton.

They are both slugging it out to show who can best represent the interests of the minority corporate invaders, occupiers, torturers and war profiteers. Their calls for “change” offer no concrete solutions for the majority of the people suffering in our communities and around the planet.

The campaign of Sister President Cynthia McKinney, however, is a major step towards independent spiritual, political and economic visioning, unity and action. Until WE meet again, i wish you and all those assembled today…

Justice, Peace, Love, Prosperity and Continued Blessings!

There is a candidate who attracts even bigger crackpots than Mr. Obama? Who knew?

Though, come to think of it, Ms. McKinney does have it all. She is black, a woman and a certifiable leftwing lunatic.

And as such she should make the perfect compromise candidate for the Democrats.
