Forget what Morgan Freeman said, Forget what Jimmy Carter said, Forget what I said. It wouldn’t matter. Any American who knows about racism in America, knows about its elevated state, knows about the impact it currently has on politics means nothing! Racism has successfully been disguised as Patriotism. The right has done it. They’ve succeed. They have managed to use their anger, their hatred, and their denial to banish the obvious fact of racism and managed to turn it into “playing the race card”.
They can successful attack non-whites and disguise it as Patriotism, but if anyone calls them out on it, it will be successfully labeled as “playing the race card”.
“playing the race card has been done so many times that no one cares anymore. It’s the classic last gasp effort of those who have already LOST the argument.” A statement used to deny, defend, or pretend racism is dead just because Barack Obama became President! And you can’t mention the fact that the Ku Klux Klan is a RIGHT-WING hate groups, cause they’ll keep using that “Democrat created the KKK line” even though that’s true.
Throughout Yesterday, I’ve reading almost every single Obama hit piece there is:
“Obama Fundraising Suffers Huge Drop-Off”
“Obama’s Rehabilitation Tour, or ‘I Promise I’m a Leftist’
“Allen West: Obama intentionally killing the economy”
and many more. And they are all motivated by one thing:
Racism…oppps! I mean Patriotism. Patriotism to take down a president, even when it means the country goes down. At the very beginning of the Presidency of Barack Obama, Conservative Talk Radio Host, Rush Limbaugh uttered the most famous words “I hope he fails” and with that, the meaning of the word “Patriot” changed completely. Now meaning a white, christian conservative who wants the president to fail by any means. I don’t want to bring up anything, but notice how Mr. Limbaugh or his ilk has never said anything good happening to American coming out of Obama’s failures, since it doesn’t have to be said. Nothing good will happen to America when Obama fails. Just like when Bush fails, and when Reagan fails!
In the fall of 2008 is the beginning of the tea partiers. Tea party activists truly took root when Barack Obama became president, and thus created a new form of Patriotism, the kind where a party goes after a President for doing “unjust” laws, especially when that President is doing the same things his predecessor was doing prior. The right knows this, but like their racism, they deny it.
A poll came out last week stating more Americans view Obama the “same or worse” than Former President George Bush, with mostly the same because he continued most of President Bush’s policies, make more wars than Bush, and sides with the right like Bush. But alias…the power of racis…..sorry..Patriotism blinds the right of that fact.
A side note: Funny how the right never cared about black conservatives, but now since they are beginning questioned for their raci…I mean, Patriotism. They’ve got two.
Of course, here’s the most greatest example of Patriotism. How people questioned the eligibility of a President, even when it’s been answered. No other President has had their birth certificate questioned and legal moves lied about by these racis…sorry..Patriots than even before. Also another use of Patriotism. Racist, vulgar, and bigoted Name-calling. Sure it’s the same as Bush, but how many times Bush had his citizenship questioned? How many times Clinton had his religion questioned? That doesn’t matter to rac…stopped myself there. That doesn’t matter to Patriots like Lloyd Marcus who calls Barack Obama an “evil man” in every one of his
Hate-filled racist rants Patriotic articles.
All joking aside, The Obama presidency has really called out the full-on racists from under whatever rock they’d been hiding for a few decades, and on rare occasions when I allow myself to read a major newspaper comments section, it’s pretty clear that these guys spend ALL their time tapping out racist garbage on their keyboards at five in the morning. They hate Obama for so many manufactured unreason that they’ve lost count of them. Apparently, it’s hard to keep track of all the people feeding us our unreason these days. Blink, and we miss ten of them…. But seriously, one can only hope that this kind of blatant, open contempt for a president of African descent marks the last gasp of the Old White Guard: you know how it goes – progress always calls forth a backlash, just as MLK Jr. would tell you. The Obama presidency has been painful at times because of the vileness of the opposition, but who really should have thought it wouldn’t be? A smooth ride was never in the cards.
But who am I kidding? All one this is just Patriotism!
