In case you may have noticed, my posts have been rather brief lately. I am away on business so not much time to write.
When I return to my hotel room, I do catch up on the news. At home I know which channel is which. FOX NEWS is the only news I can stomach. Here in a foreign cable channel land, Afrocity is fumbling with the remote control in an attempt to get the hell away from MSNBC. Sometimes I pause to hear Rachel Maddow say something so utterly stupid that I have to watch. Of course she was covering the town hall meetings from the right wing nose bleed seats. On Wednesday she gave a chilling account of a loon who showed up in New Hampshire with a knife and gun in his truck during Obama’s visit. She then peppers her statements with inflammatory language like “assassination”. This is what the right is encouraging she implies. We want someone to assasinate Barack Obama. Shaking my head I flip to the Food Channel. Watching some chef julliene a kiwi fruit is better than watching this junk.
Did you see this headline???
Give me a break. Don’t flatter yourselves.
The media will continue to play the race card again, and again and again. Meanwhile George W. Bush was the president who was actually assaulted with deadly footwear during a foreign press conference in 2008. Karl Rove was rescued from a Code Pink citizens arrest while he was on a public stage.
To date has anyone harmed one arugula leaf on Obama’s head??? No spit balls or paper airplanes carrying cyanide powder have flown his way. Somehow the health care debate has again turned racist. Call President Obama a socialist and that is equivalent to the “N” word. Accusations of socialism are now racist. You didn’t say the “N” word but you certainly were thinking it when you called Obama a socialist.
Watch this town hall meeting held Thursday night by Sean Hannity. Notice how it is mentioned that socialism is a strong word. You should also take notice of the crazy liberal Obamabot on the left.
Overall this was a good discussion. I was proud of Hannity for doing it. He had a fair amount of Obama and McCain supporters. Excluding the crazy woman, everyone seemed to have their heads on straight. It was also nice to see the African Americans in the audience were not drinking the race Kool Aid. It gave me some hope that citizens are beginning to wise up and open their ears to what Obama is actually saying rather than bobble head nodding at the eloquence of his words. Is Obama watching any of this? If so, the expats from Kool Aid Mountain had better use some protection against future brainwashing attempts. Something tells me that Barack Obama is not the type that is easy to break up with.
