President Obama has been lied about, attacked, vilified, and disrespected since Day One. In this
country that may have passed laws so blacks can vote and eat in a white man’s world, but in our hearts are stuck in
a place more like 1952 than 2014.
We’ve been watching a slow motion lynching of a moderate brilliant family man, a father,
and faithful loving husband. The Republicans in Congress are so dedicated to lynching the President they’ve been willing
to shut down our government and risk the future of our economy.
Evangelical “Christians” have been so stuck on putting a rope around this black
man’s neck they have denied their faith and been the backbone of the lying Tea Party who spawned the so-called “birthers”
and the rest of the white people driving our news cycle
Roman Catholic bishops have denied their tradition of helping the poor and been so eager to
destroy this president they aligned themselves with white Evangelical bigots and tried to stop health care reform, all because
the President wants to give women a fair shake. The bishops even called him “anti-religious” because the president
wants insurers to pay for contraception.
This is a slow motion lynching of a black man who is so moderate and centrist that he favored
Wall Street enough so that the Left is all over his case. He’s so “radical” and “leftist” and
“hates America” so much, and “coddles our enemies” so much, that he killed bin Laden and used drones
to kill our enemies. He’s such a “socialist” that he presided over the revival of our economy from the worst
recession since the Great Depression, and led us to the present day stock market boom. President Obama is such a “Marxist”
that he tried to give insurance – not socialized medicine – to all Americans.
President Obama never answered back to the disgusting southern right wing rubes from the former
slave states that have tried to belittle, mock and stymie his presidency shouting “You lie” in a million ways,
while actually meaning “You lie, nigger!” .
