Racists v. Obama
August 25, 2010 § 2 Comments
One thing that is driving me nuts these days is the extreme right wing in the United States. In particular, the morons who consistently assert that 1) Barack Obama was not born in the United States and 2) Barack Obama is a Muslim. This on-going idiocy exists for one simple reason: racism. The only reason why people question whether Obama was born in the United States is because he’s got an ‘unusual’ name, that includes the name “Hussein” as his middle name. If his name was Joe Smith, this debate wouldn’t exist. And this leads to why these eejits are accusing him of being a Muslim: he’s black and his middle name is Hussein. The fact that these morons continue this assault on Obama leaves me feeling, one the one hand, depressed at the state of humanity today. On the other hand, though, it occasionally occurs to me that if this is the best these feeble-minded folk can come up with, maybe Obama’s not doing such a bad job after all?
Seriously, what I do wonder is why no one on Obama’s side (i.e.: the Democrats) actually fights back and calls these idiots what they are: racist, moronic idiots.
Because they need to, they should. Because the idiocy of these racists leads to events like this, where a cabbie in NYC was asked if he was a Muslim before he was stabbed. There are consequences of the hatemongering begun by these morons, by playing on and exploiting the fears of people. As far as I’m concerned, the racists who attack Obama in this way are responsible for idiots like this guy who stabbed the cabbie in New York because he is a Muslim.
