A Moonbat’s Conception of the Voice of God

Please forgive me: Maya Angelou died recently and I didn’t even mention it. I didn’t realize that according to the highly revered (if only by liberals) Bill Clinton, she spoke with the voice of God:

“God loaned her His voice. She had the voice of God. And He decided He wanted it back for a while,” Clinton said at the memorial service, held this past Saturday at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where Angelou taught as the Reynolds Professor of American Studies since 1982.

To honor the former Speaker With the Voice of God, let’s have a little poetry:

Dancin’ the funky chicken
Eatin’ ribs and tips
Diggin’ all the latest sounds
And drinkin’ gin in sips.

Puttin’ down that do-rag
Tighten’ up my ‘fro
Wrappin’ up in Blackness
Don’t I shine and glow?

Hearin’ Stevie Wonder
Cookin’ beans and rice
Goin’ to the opera
Checkin’ out Leontyne Price.

Get down, Jesse Jackson
Dance on, Alvin Ailey
Talk, Miss Barbara Jordan
Groove, Miss Pearlie Bailey.

Now ain’t they bad?
An ain’t they Black?
An ain’t they Black?
An’ ain’t they Bad?
An ain’t they bad?
An’ ain’t they Black?
An’ ain’t they fine?

If I had written that myself in a drunken stupor as a joke, it would be regarded as racism at its most vicious. But that really was written by Maya Angelou. The poem is aptly entitled “Ain’t That Bad?” It’s bad, all right.

Pretending that a child’s finger-paintings belong in the Louvre next to Rembrandt isn’t helping anyone. It would be far more constructive to encourage black writers with literary talent than to hype race-obsessed moonbats like Maya Angelou, who play into the stereotypes fondly treasured by condescending liberals.

maya-angelou
Moonbattery acts fast: from Shakespeare to Maya Angelou in only 4 centuries.

On a tip from Mr. Mentalo.

    Yes, thanks Dave for not mentioning her passing, like the rest of the fawning media did!

    After hearing all of the nonsense about how great she was, I did a search on the Internet and read some of her quotes. Although many sounded good, they were ALL very similar to other people’s quotes and/or things in the Bible, of which she changed the wording slightly. Too bad she didn’t give God the glory for those sayings.

    Since she was BLACK and a FEMALE she is treated like a god by the left and by those on the right who are weak.

    All,
    The navajo Indians have and interesting concept. Once a person dies they don’t ever mention them again. The believe that if they talk about the dead, the dead will continue to walk among them. When a moonbat dies we should follow the same concept we have enought live moonbats without adding the dead ones!

    Joe Queenan once said of a certain actress, “If she’s alive, she’s the worst living actress. And if she’s dead, good.” I feel the same way about “poet” Maya Angelou.

    Nevertheless, Angelou was a heroin of lefties, because she was black and female and because…because…because she was black and female and lefty. I guess.

    So let the frothing, slobbering encomiums begin! I know why the caged bird covers both his ears with his wings.

    Odd, but looking at this particular moonbat, here are some facts I discovered:

    She goes by and is commonly known by a false name. Here real first and middle names were never Maya, they were Marguerite Annie. Why is it so common for moonbats to go by false names?

    Her parents had a “calamitous marriage”, as moonbats often do (i.e. they have calamitous marriages and children that go through such experiences often become moonbats themselves).

    Like Obama, Angelou’s experiences weren’t all bad, in fact, like Obama, she actually spent significant time in the lap of luxury as she was raised by her paternal grandmother (initially for four years), who made wise investments and was quite prosperous, even during the Great Depression.

    Allegedly, at the age of eight, while living with her mother, Angelou was sexually abused and raped by her mother’s boyfriend, a man named Freeman. Or so she told her brother, who told others. The man was convicted – one hopes the evidence supported his conviction, but there’s no justification for what was done to him, though still some might say it was poetic (cough, cough) justice: he was murdered essentially by vigilantes.

    Curiously, Angelou CHOSE to become mute for almost five years shortly thereafter, One might say she felt guilty for his death, which suggests to me there might be some question concerning her initial allegations. IN HER OWN WORDS: ” I thought I would never speak again, because my voice would kill anyone ”

    Note she did not rightfully point out, if indeed her allegations against him were honest, that it was his misdeeds that eventually led to his death. She specifically blamed HER WORDS, as if THEY were somehow to blame, not anything he had done as she alleged.

    Shortly after Freeman’s murder, Angelou and her brother were sent back to their grandmother.

    When Angelou was 14 (after roughly 5-6 years, I calculate), she and her brother moved in with their mother once again, who had since moved to Oakland, California.

    Angelou admitted to “a 30-day disappearance”, to working as a nightclub dancer (semi-nude or completely, or not?), and serving as both a madam and sex worker at a San Diego brothel. Now, who is to blame for those decisions and actions she made? Probably, according to moonbats, anyone but her.

    Now bear in mind lots of people make mistakes and this is not my point for bringing these things up. But in the popular myth regarding her, you don’t hear these facts, do you?

    From this point on there are also GOOD things to say about her – she became an accomplished dancer (apparently with her clothes on?) and also began to pick up several languages – she apparently had either an innate or learned linguistic ability superior to average.

    Married in 1951, she trashed her vows and divorced about 3 years later.

    She became involved in the Civil Rights movement.

    She was ardently PRO-CASTRO.

    She had an affair with South African “freedom fighter” (often moonbat code for “terrorist”, as evidenced by it’s copious use to describe Palestinian terrorists these days, among others) Vusumzi Make – good luck finding anything but platitudes about him due to moonbats and their revisionism.

    She was a close friend and associate with Malcom X (another fake name).

    It appears that, like her mother, she perhaps had several ‘boyfriends’ during this period. I wonder if her son was ever molested by one or more as she claimed she was? Was he her only child? Did her choices and lifestyle adversely affect him? These things I don’t know.

    Her second marriage lasted about 8 years – one wonders, why bother when you’re not going to really try?

    Like Obama, she seems obsessed with herself, though she is featured in over twice as many biographies (7 to Obama’s 3).

    She holds multiple college degrees, though none actually earned.

    She’s a moonbat hero who, like other moonbat idols, seems to have been handed more than she’s actually earned.

    Credited with several things though I wonder, are the accolades true or appropriated and are they deserved, such as Obama’s clearly UNdeserved Nobel Peace Prize.

His admittedly heinous crime (if really guilty) was bad, but did any of those who participated in his murder get tried, convicted and punished for what is arguably a worse crime?

    Curiously, Angelou CHOSE to become mute for almost five years shortly thereafter, One might say she felt guilty for his death, which suggests to me there might be some question concerning her initial allegations.

She specifically blamed HER WORDS, as if THEY were somehow to blame, not anything he had done per her original allegations. I wonder, was there any hard evidence other than her word that he really did anything?

    And I also wonder a couple of other things:

    Though I understand the concept of statutory rape, was the alleged rape forceful, against her will? Or was this a case where she saw how her mother acted and, wanting attention she wasn’t getting, actually ‘seduced’ her mother’s boyfriend to some degree – and mind you this is not me saying “she asked for it” as an excuse of any sort. What they guy ALLEGEDLY did, if in fact he did it, was wrong and there is no excuse. I’m just wondering if it was consensual to any degree or if she had some sort of role in bringing the event about.

    In an interesting coincidence, I attended a funeral once where one of the speakers stated, “If you have anything bad to say about the deceased, say it now or let it go.”

    Wise advice, though I know a few who failed to follow it and it only made them more whiney and miserable.

    ONE MORE THING. Take a look at that picture of her. For someone who’s had as full and good of a life, overall, as she has according to moonbat myth and legend, doesn’t she, like so many moonbats, look like she’s got some huge uncomfortable thing shoved up her backside?

    Dave,

    You must have been really preoccupied that week in order to have missed all of the obsequious bum-kissing that went on over Angelou after she passed away….. lol.

    But then it’s really no different than the way she was treated in life by the “self-enlightened liberal” luminaries that fawned all over this woman of dubious talents, throughout her life. (People like Obama and Oprah for example….) And does anyone doubt that these same people could not, nor would not, have cared less about her, had Maya Angelou been white?

    As a fellow human being, I’m sorry she has passed on, if she was still of adequate health that she was still enjoying this life. She seemed to be a pleasant enough person.

    However, I will not miss her writing pretentious piles of crap that her sycophants referred to as “free verse poetry”, nor will I miss that phony accent that she developed over the years, as a peculiar affectation. Incidentally, wasn’t it Robert Frost that said something like: “Free verse poetry is a lot like playing tennis without a net”……

    Seems her ‘poem’ could’ve been written in any jook joint in Florida. (I know because I had the unhappy job of inspecting some of them in my working days with the health department. I never got the satisfaction of closing any, though I tried.) She was probably boiled as an owl on ‘gin and joose’ when she wrote that doggerel: bad meter, clumsy rhyme… but why pile on?

    Compare the scribbles of this moonbat to Longfellow’s ‘Skeleton in Armor,’ Henley’s ‘Invictus,’ or Poe’s ‘Annabel Lee,’ then weep for our dying culture.
