I have to ask if this is where we are. The day after election day in 2008, I was shocked at the vile attitudes from people who appear normal. He was called a communist, a nazi, a muslim – everything “except a white man” as the saying goes. In private it was surely worse.
Today I received an email, surely by accident as I have a catch-all email account.
My daughter walked into the living room and said “Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, forget the College tuition, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out of the window; take my TV, iPhone, iPod, and my laptop. Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house.
Then disown me and never talk to me again.
And don’t forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any one that wants it.”
Well, she didn’t put it quite like that.. she actually said…
“Dad, meet my new boyfriend – Mohammed. We’re going to work together on
President Obama’s re-election campaign.”
Hmm… racist and anti-muslim in one. Way to go white supremisist!
Next I saw a truck with a number of bumper stickers with Obama’s campaign logo. It was a crew cab dual rear wheel, turbo ram with a camper topper. When I looked closer I could read the sticker. Beside a photo of Obama was the caption
Does this ass make my truck look big?
Clever, but no. It’s your big truck with that bumper sticker that makes you look like a big ass.
Are we not past this hatred and racism?
