Why Are they Calling Us Racist?

obamasolutionRacism in the United States is an ugly chapter that has not yet been completed.  In recent months, some who tend to lean to the far  right (my apologies to those with one shorter leg) have been wondering why people have been accusing them of being racist.  Driving home from work today I even heard Rush Limbaugh attempting to rile up his audience.  Taunting his dittoheads, he told them that “they” call you racists for disagreeing with Obama.  He then went on to say that in “In Obama’s America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, ‘Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,” Limbaugh said.  In the past he has criticized Obama’s black handshake and has referred to him as a Halfrican American.   It was a childish shameful tirade  and attempt at spin.   I think you know that  people are not being accused of racism simply because of thier views on healthcare reform.  You’re a grown up.  You know better than that.  People don’t think you’re racist for disagreeing with healthcare.  They think you’re racist for cracking racist jokes.  They think you’re racist for emailing racist images.  They think you’re racist for being racist.  Is it that far fetched.  We have seen this since the campaign.  Do you not remember people at McCain rallies with monkeys depicting Obama.  Do we not remember the Republican staffer who carved a B in her face and blamed a black assailant?   Have you not seen the signs at Tea party rallies and the 9-12 march depicting President Obama as a Muslim terrorist?  Or the one that said Africa has lions, we have a lying African? 

Personally, I think there are people with valid concerns about healthcare reform.  I do not think the majority of Republicans are racists.  But one cannot ignore the fact that there is a vocal element that is indeed racist.  And you cannot just dismiss this as a few fringe KKK lunatic nuts.    Some of it is coming from GOP officials.  In South Carolina, a GOP official posted a comment on Facebook comparing Michele Obama to an escaped Gorilla.  An advisor to  the State’s Attorney General Henry McMaster posted about an escape of a gorilla from the Riverbanks Zoo.  The update was followed by  a comment from former State Senate candidate and GOP activist Republican Rusty DePass. “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors — probably harmless.”  In Tennessee, a legislative staffer for Diane Black sent out an email depicting the 44 presidents.  Obama’s picture only depicted his eyes.  Dean Grose, the Republican Mayor of Los Alamitos, California sent out an email depicting the White House with a watermelon patch.  The caption read “no Easter Egg hunt this year.”  He resigned in disgrace.  You may also recall the Chaffey Community Republican Women’s Club which sent out a mailer depicting President Obama on Food Stamps surrounded by watermelon and fried chicken.  That piece of work was attributed to the group’s president racist16_400Diane Fedele. So why are they calling you racithumbnailCAH4BVPKst?  Beat’s the heck out of me.

  1. Perhaps the pictures will help with your point(s). There are days when it is much too exhausting to verbalize the issues.

    You sir, are awesome.

  2. IF OBAMA IS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, THEN THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP HIM FROM BEING RE-ELECTED.

    (AS TO ROPES, REMEMBER, HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE BEING EXECUTED WITHOUT PRESIDENTIAL PARDON IN THE UNITED STATES EVERY YEAR. EXECUTED BY THE HUNDREDS IN TEXAS AND OTHER STATES, BY ROPE, BY ELECTRIC CHAIR, BY LETHAL INJECTION, BY FIRING SQUAD. MAYBE THE MOST BY ROPE. THE EXECUTIONS ARE NOT PUBLIC, BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE, LIKE SADAAM HUSSEIN, ARE DE-CAPITATED WHEN THEY ARE HUNG BY THE NECK.)
