So, okay…let me see if I got this straight.
Not only did we just have a guy who showed up at a New Hampshire town hall meeting of the president packing a serious looking open-carry rig with a 9mm pistol but now if I understand right we had some chick outside another Obama related event with a sign saying something about kill President Obama, kill his wife, and kill his kids.
What the &#$@!
Look I know there are plenty ‘o crazies in the world. Plenty of people who think violence is cool and think Death Wish was a warm and fuzzy movie.
But these were probably the same people insisting we respect a president who didn’t know what he was doing at all (yes, the Shrub known as George), and they have the balls to come armed to the current president’s events and/or encourage violence not only toward him but also his family. These are the same people, I’m guessing, who thump their Bibles and push out their chests when they talk about the moral high ground of the U.S. and the need to post the Ten Commandments and make marriage follow biblical rules and herd up all the homos to re-educated ’em.
Aside from the crazy factor, what I see here is a huge disrespect to President Obama. The notion that you can treat the man this way when he’s president and the notion that you wouldn’t immediately haul these people away from questioning and possible jailing boggles my mind because that’s what would have happened with the idiot guy in office.
But put a dude in office in a messed up economy that the right-wingers created and he’s got some functioning brain cells (though not enough cajones politically some days, I fear) and all of a sudden you can just treat him like some thug who waltzed up on your lawn.
Wonder why there’s so much more open, blatant disrespect of this guy…bald-faced hateful boldness…threats to his family including kids…rejections of his citizenship…notions that he must be sympathetic to or beholden to all sorts of Muslim folks…
Well, we know it’s not because he’s BLACK, right?
After all, he got elected in a nation where only 12% of folks are Black. Couldn’t be that we have any racism anymore…
Yeah. Right. Suuuuuurre.
