Valerie Jarrett, Who Asked You

Soon to be President Pompous Ass and his patronizing tone are getting on my nerves and he hasn't even been inaugurated. First friend and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett is equally presumptuous, telling Americans when they should and shouldn't be upset.

You do not need to have demonstrations in front of the White House to convince this president that there is a disparate impact in the African-American community around issues such as health care and education. He’s got that. The campaign stood for change. It stood for a grassroots, bottom-up drive toward a better country. That does not have to be confrontational. It can be engaging.”

Pardon me Val, but could you just STFU? It is up to citizens to decide that they should or should not demonstrate and yes, sweetie, presidents have to be confronted. Your smooth "don't worry your pretty little heads" talk does not intimidate me or millions of other people either. Only a fool would choose not to confront the powers that be, and my mother didn't raise one of those.

You know what Val, sometimes engagement doesn't work. Sometimes presidents and their advisers just don't give a damn and they have to hear to things they would rather ignore. So if you look out the White House window and see me or others demonstrating, you will just have to get over it.
