Presidential Donkey Punch

The MTV Video Music Awards started the week off in grand fashion, and as usual, it had nothing to do with the ‘greatness’ of the awards show.  

MTV is a lover of controversy, and the VMA’s provided plenty of that in the form of Kanye West, or Kanye Mess if you want to follow popular Internet dialogue.  When Kanye West stormed the stage and essentially ripped whatever joy Taylor Swift felt for being the first country star to win an MTV VMA award straight out of her heart and stomped it flat in front of millions with his proclamation that Beyonce made a better video.

Needless to say, the crowd, the fans, the celebrities, and even Kanye’s betters (yes Kanye, there are a lot of people who are better than you in both financial terms, entertainment terms and everyday importance) all rallied against the fool and filled the start of the week with attacks both politically correct and the more common unfiltered commentary.

Even the president had words to say about the matter.  

It’s not every day Obama slams Kanye or anyone else with weighted words.  Obama’s labeling Kanye a “jackass” has become the best news of the week, in a move I call the Obama Donkey Punch.  

There is something a bit ridiculous about the whole situation now though, and that is the political nut jobs that have jumped up and screamed foul at the president’s comments, saying they were “un-presidential.”

Hey there pro-politically correct people! Your case here is as ridiculous as the Redskins being sued by Native Americans for defamation (you don’t see them suing Disney for Peter Pan now do you?)  

Political correctness is a cancer that has been left to fester and spread through American society by those with unrealistic expectations and a wish to protect everyone and everything from feeling bad.

I’m sorry, life is about experiences and interactions, both good and bad, and between good and bad people.  To say that something is unacceptable simply because it doesn’t sit well with you, yet it had not physically harmful (like murder) is a social crippling mechanism.  You prevent people from ever communicating the truth and instead put them behind a blanket filter that sets the rules for what things are okay to feel and think.

What is the point of having a free will in a free country if we are unable to exercise it?

I am not an Obama fan. That is easy to discern from the commentary of many of my articles, but I will say that Obama had every right to say what he did about Kanye.  

Kanye is a jackass and no one will disagree.  Obama simply stated what was on everyone’s mind and what everyone said to begin with.  I would rather have a President be candid in his commentary and run without a filter in the matters that don’t require political manipulation (such as healthcare).  Obama’s the first President who was really in touch with the majority of things going on outside of the political spectrum, and I can respect that, even if I don’t agree with his policies.

Plus, the Obama Donkey Punch is just awesome.
