First off, Happy New Year everyone. Now let’s get down to business.
The racist right started the New Year with a resolution to get President Obama out of the White House using the only weapon they’ve been using for the last three years….It’s not their brain!
From the Washington Post:
Can you imagine how the incident would play out if an African-American congressman made a crude remark about First Lady Laura Bush’s body? It certainly would have taken more than an insincere apology to wash that sin away. That scenario never happened — hopefully because those congressmen were raised with a measure of common decency. I know that America’s first family – an image this country presents to the world — is traditionally granted a certain amount of respect across party lines. […]
What is it about her simple message that gets some folks in such a tizzy? Michelle Obama isn’t advocating a diet of roots and berries, only moderation in a country suffering the effects of an obesity epidemic, with diabetes on the rise in young children. She is sharing the advice in a way that emphasizes healthy eating and exercise, rather than the deprivation diet of a photo-retouched supermodel.
You would think a message to take a little care with what we consume would be welcomed. But no, folks like Rush Limbaugh and Sensenbrenner prefer to inspect every item the Obamas put on their plates. Those two might better spend that time looking in the mirror, but self-awareness has never been part of their package. Of course, if the first lady were a size 0, they would be saying she encourages anorexia.
Not only is this disrespect crude, it also proves yet again that you can’t go wrong disrespecting a black woman in the United States of America, even if she lives in the White House – and in some constituencies, especially if she lives in the White House. Sensenbrenner’s nasty rant made me sick and sad because it brings to the surface the ugly history of how black women are viewed in America, stereotyped and dehumanized, our bodies everyone’s business except our own.
And they hate being called racists:
It’s like this: Michelle Obama has made it her business to get up into everyone’s grill about what foods they should and should not eat. Even going so far as to get an expensive ($4.5 billion) and intrusive “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” signed into law. Ergo, criticizing the Moochelle’s bad eating habits along with her robust badonkadonk is all about the Obama’s perpetual hypocrisy and would still be the subject of attention even if she was a WASP.
I mean, c’mon, really; if the First Lady was a white drunkard and decided to go on a crusade passing legislation limiting the number of beers one could drink at the local sports bar, would it be racist to point out the inherent hypocrisy in that? I don’t think so.
But, you can’t tell that to a Libtard, that’s for sure. Every single criticism of the Obama’s must somehow be linked to racism; because, after all, in a Libtard’s Lilliputianesque mind, the Obama’s are perfection personified and anyone who doesn’t agree with that sentiment can only be a Right-Wing, Neo-Nazi racist:
Remind me again who you losers are not racists, cause it’s not working! They want to get brutal.
Nothing wrong with that. I am too.
Especially racist assholes. And ignorant bigots. Or to be brief, conservatives.
As I commented on your website, BullshitDog:
Utter B.S. Republicans live off the public dole and I would bet you have also. You kids will grow as ignorantly, lazy and racist as the rest of you wingnuts. You teach your fat kids to hate and the list of other Americans that you hate grows daily. There are few decent people who call themselves Republicans because they see those still clinging to that racist, illiterate group of whining, unpatriotic, anti-Americans, worthy of their countenance. You appear to be part of the whining group.
