An Open Letter to People Who Hate Obama More Than They Love America

This excellent article is from 2012 and is even more on target today…

An Open Letter to People Who Hate Obama More Than They Love America
by MinistryOfTruth

I meet you all the time. You hate Obama. You hate gay people. You hate black people, immigrants, Muslims, labor unions, women who want the right to make choices concerning their bodies, you hate em all. You hate being called racist. You hate being called a bigot. Maybe if you talked about creating jobs more than you talk about why you hate gay people we wouldn’t call you bigots. Maybe if you talked about black people without automatically assuming they are on food stamps while demanding their birth certificates we wouldn’t call you racist. You hate socialism and social justice. You hate regulations and taxes and spending and the Government. You hate.

You like war. You like torture. You like Jesus. I don’t know how in the hell any of that is compatible, but no one ever accused you haters of being over-committed to ideological consistency. You like people who look like you or at least hate most of the things that you hate. You hate everything else.

Now, I know you profess to love our country and the founding fathers (unless you are reminded that they believed in the separation of church and state), but I need to remind you that America is NOT what Fox News says it is. America is a melting pot, it always has been. We are a multi-cultural amalgamation of all kinds of people, and yet you still demonize everyone who is not a rich, white, heterosexual christian male or his submissive and obedient wife.

You hate liberals, moderates, hell, anyone who disagrees with Conservative dogma as espoused by Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. You hate em.

Well, here are the facts, Jack. If you hate the Government then you are unqualified to manage it. If you hate gay people more than you love America than you should take your own advice and get the hell out. There are several countries that are openly hostile to gay people, but they are full of brown people and you don’t like them much either from what I understand. It looks like you are screwed, but that’s not what I am here to tell you.

Now that you have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at President Obama and it still hasn’t worked you are panicking. Obama’s approval ratings are still near 50% despite your best efforts to undermine the economy and America’s recovery at every step you can. You tried to hold the American economy hostage to force America into default on its’ debts, debts that YOU rang up under Bush, so you could blame it on Obama and it failed. You’ve used the filibuster more than any other Congress ever, going so far as to vote against providing health care access to 9/11 first responders. You remember 9/11, don’t you, it’s that thing you used to lie us into a war in Iraq, and then when Obama killed Bin Laden and ended the war in Iraq you told people that he hates America and wants the troops to fail. You monsters. You hate Obama with a passion, despite the fact that he is a tax cutting, deficit reducing war President who undermines civil rights and delivers corporate friendly watered down reforms that benefit special interests just like a Republican. You call him a Kenyan. You call him a socialist. You dance with your hatred singing it proudly in the rain like it was a 1950’s musical.

Frankly, you disgust me. Your hatred nauseates me. Your bigotry offends me. Your racism revolts me.

Dear haters, I am openly questioning your patriotism.

I think you hate gays, Obama, black people, poor people, all of us, women, atheists and agnostics, Latinos, Muslims, Liberals, all of us, I think you hate every one who isn’t exactly like you, and I think you hate us more than you love your country.

I think you hate gay soldiers more than you want America to win its wars.

I don’t even think you want America to win wars, you just want America to have wars, never ending wars and the war profiteering it generates. You love that kind of spending, you love spending on faith based initiatives and abstinence based sex education (George Carlin would have loved that one), you love spending on subsidies for profitable oil corporations, you spend like drunken sailors when you are in the White House, but if it is a Democrat then suddenly you cheer when America doesn’t get the Olympics because it might make the black President look bad. But oooh you love your country, you say, and you want it back. Well listen here skippy, it isn’tyour country, you don’t own it, it is our country, and America is NOT the religiously extremist Foxbots who hate science, elitist professors and having a vibrant and meaningful sex life with someone we love if Rick Santorum doesn’t approve of it. Rick Santorum isn’t running for America’s fucking high school dance chaperone, he should probably just shut the hell up about sex, but he can’t because he has nothing else to run on.

Republicans can NOT win on the issues. They’ve got NOTHING. All they have is a divide and conquer class war that pits ignorant racist and bigoted people against the rest of us in a meaningless battle of wedge issues and the already proven to fail George W. Bush agenda again of tax cuts for the rich, deregulation, privatization and war profiteering and nothing else, so all they can do is blame black people, gays the government, anybody and everyone else for their own failings. The party of personal responsibility, my ass.

But they love multi-national corporations, just ask a gay hating and racist religious extremist if they think Corporations are people and they will gladly agree, but if you ask them if gay people are people they aren’t so sure.

Dear haters, you are the cruel, heartless misinformed assholes who would sell America out to Haliburton in a heartbeat, you would rather pay ZERO taxes than you would see a newly born baby get access to quality health care, you cheer when we discuss denying health care to young people with preventable diseases, and you boo when we discuss the First Ladies plan to cut back on childhood obesity. You are a cross to carry and a flag to wrap yourself in away from being the people who Sinclair Lewis warned us about, but I guarantee that if Fox News told you to dress that way you would, because you are the same blind, ignorant and closed minded dunces who drove this country into a civil war years ago because you are bound to the notion that some men are more equal than others. In short, the reason I proudly wear my union army hat is because of seditious sell outs like you who constantly fuck over working class Americans so a foreign entrepreneur like Rupert Murdoch can get a bigger tax break. If corporations are people, they are neither American patriots nor capable of love. Just like you.

So stop wearing your hate with pride. Stop celebrating your anti-science, anti-math ignorance. Stop using code words to mask your bigotry like “family values”, especially when you hate my family and when you stand on the same stage as a guy who has had three marriages or if you share a seat in the Senate with a guy who cheated on his wife with hookers while wearing diapers. You should be ashamed. I know that you are just doing this to motivate your misinformed hate cult base because if they actually knew that your ideas will make them poorer than they are now, they would never vote for you. You are doing your best to impoverish your countrymen so rich people can get bigger tax breaks and you can keep on delivering corporate welfare to the special interests who have bribed you, and I am disgusted by the way you gleefully parade your hatred with aplomb. I don’t think you do love America. At least, not as much as you hate everyone in America who isn’t exactly like you.

You should think about that, and maybe get some help.

And for the record, I do not hate you. I am embarrassed by you and nauseated by your cruel and thoughtless behavior and your all consuming greed, but I do not hate you. I forgive you and I hope you can change someday, but I don’t hate you. You have enough hate in you for the rest of us as it is.

The GOP Stands With Putin

Tracy Knauss nails it…

G.O.P = GUSHING OVER PUTIN. The GOP leaders would rather support a communist leader, and former head of the KGB, than support their own president, even in an international crisis!! It’s amazing what having a Black Man in the White House can do. It can cause the closet racists and bigots to come out into the open and form a national party of supposed patriots. And it can make the GOP leaders praise a Russian despot over their own POTUS. Face it, the GOP HATES women, they HATE Blacks, they HATE Latinos, they HATE Gays, and yet they LOVE Putin. What a crock of cascading crap that is. But that’s today’s GOP. They would rather embrace a communist despot than salute their own commander in chief. Traitors much? That’s the new GOP leadership. And that’s just one more reason to NEVER vote for a Republican. Remember this, come November.

You cannot make this up. All those years of hating on Putin and Russia and now a complete turnaround. The disrespect shown toward this President is beyond the pale. During a crisis like this, all Americans are expected to support our leader, ESPECIALLY Congress.

I am so ashamed of these anti-Americans and haters.  This is our year to turn this mess around.

As a commenter at the link wrote:

A good leader sees war as a last resort! Can you imagine if McCain had become president in ’08!?! We would still have the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war and we would be at war with Iran, North Korea, Syria, and a push for Russian war!

The GOP is as insane as their racist voters. 2014. You know what to do.

What happened to Black Wall Street on June 1, 1921?


Many racists in America like to point out that African Americans should become entrepreneurs and build their own communities for prosperity, rather than rely on government assistance and settle for low-paying jobs. If you don’t know history, if you don’t understand the climate to prevent blacks from getting an affordable education today, housing, fair loans and not be herded off to prison for crimes overlooked for whites, you could not possibly understand that blacks HAVE successfully been independent of the system and thrived. All that was destroyed, not just in Tulsa, OK, but in several other communities. Jewish communities are all over the U.S. We have the Amish doing the same thing. Look at the Mormons. But blacks doing for themselves?  Oh no, we can’t possibly allow that. Yet these people and politicians will continue to point fingers and say blacks are lazy and apathetic.

Every American who cares about this nation should read this story. It will explain so many questions about what happened after slavery, Jim Crow and the escalation of racism today. It’s a story about power, envy, jealousy, hate, oppression…and evil. ~Marion Young


What happened to Black Wall Street on June 1, 1921?
San Francisco Bay View

Black Wall Street, the name fittingly given to one of the most affluent all-Black communities in America, was bombed from the air and burned to the ground by mobs of envious Whites. In a period spanning fewer than 12 hours, a once thriving Black business district in northern Tulsa lay smoldering – a model community destroyed and a major African-American economic movement resoundingly defused.

 The night’s carnage left some 3,000 African Americans dead and over 600 successful businesses lost. Among these were 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores and two movie theaters, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half dozen private airplanes and even a bus system. As could have been expected, the impetus behind it all was the infamous Ku Klux Klan, working in consort with ranking city officials and many other sympathizers.

The best description of Black Wall Street, or Little Africa as it was also known, would be to compare it to a mini Beverly Hills. It was the golden door of the Black community during the early 1900s, and it proved that African Americans could create a successful infrastructure. That’s what Black Wall Street was all about. 

The dollar circulated 36 to 100 times, sometimes taking a year for currency to leave the community. Now a dollar leaves the Black community in 15 minutes. As for resources, there were Ph.D.s residing in Little Africa, Black attorneys and doctors. One doctor was Dr. Berry, who owned the bus system. His average income was $500 a day, hefty pocket change in 1910.

These are Black-built, Black-owned buildings that were occupied by bustling Black businesses before envious whites rioted and destroyed them.

It was a time when the entire state of Oklahoma had only two airports, yet six Blacks owned their own planes. It was a very fascinating community.

 The mainstay of the community was to educate every child. Nepotism was the one word they believed in. And that’s what we need to get back to. The main thoroughfare was Greenwood Avenue, and it was intersected by Archer and Pine Streets. From the first letters in each of those three names you get G.A.P. And that’s where the renowned R&B music group the GAP Band got its name. They’re from Tulsa.

At the end of the day, June 1, 1921, this is what remained of Black Wall Street. Lost forever were over 600 successful businesses, including 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores, two movie theaters, a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half dozen private airplanes and a bus system.

Black Wall Street was a prime example of the typical Black community in America that did business, but it was in an unusual location. You see, at the time, Oklahoma was set aside to be a Black and Indian state. There were over 28 Black townships there. One third of the people who traveled in the terrifying “Trail of Tears” alongside the Indians between 1830 and 1842 were Black people. The citizens of this proposed Indian and Black state chose a Black governor, a treasurer from Kansas named McDade. But the Ku Klux Klan said that if he assumed office that they would kill him within 48 hours.

 Here, the businesses that had been the economic engine of this most prosperous Black community in the U.S. are identified.

A lot of Blacks owned farmland, and many of them had gone into the oil business.

The community was so tight and wealthy because they traded dollars hand to hand and because they were dependent upon one another as a result of the Jim Crow laws. It was not unusual that if a resident’s home accidentally burned down, it could be rebuilt within a few weeks by neighbors. This was the type of scenario that was going on day to day on Black Wall Street.

When Blacks intermarried into the Indian culture, some of them received their promised “40 acres and a mule” and with that came whatever oil was later found on the properties. On Black Wall Street, a lot of global business was conducted.

The community flourished from the early 1900s until June 1, 1921. That’s when the largest massacre of nonmilitary Americans in the history of this country took place, and it was led by the Ku Klux Klan. Imagine walking out of your front door and seeing 1,500 homes being burned. It must have been amazing.

Survivors we interviewed think that the whole thing was planned, because during the time that all of this was going on, White families with their children stood around the borders of their community and watched the massacre – the looting and everything – much in the same manner they would watch a lynching. The riots weren’t caused by anything Black or White. They were caused by jealousy.

A lot of White folks had come back from World War I and they were poor. When they looked over into the Black communities and realized that Black men who fought in the war had come home heroes, that helped trigger the destruction. It cost the Black community everything, and not a single dime of restitution – no insurance claims – has been awarded the victims to this day. Nonetheless, they rebuilt.

 We estimate 1,500 to 3,000 people were killed, and we know that a lot of them were buried in mass graves all around the city. Some were thrown into the river. As a matter of fact, at 21st Street and Yale Avenue, where there now stands a Sears parking lot, that corner used to be a coal mine. They threw a lot of the bodies into the shafts.

This and That…

There’s so much going on these days in my personal life so I haven’t been posting lately. However, I AM reading your blogs here at WordPress, and I AM keeping up with events. So know that if I am not commenting in your great posts, I am still reading your great content, my friends. Here’s are a few of my thoughts on current events…
 
 
RACIAL ENTITLEMENT – Really, Justice Scalia? Have you gone mad? Even two other justices called you out on your gross, disgusting statement which leads me to believe Section 5 of the Voter Rights Act will not be struck down, and you were simply being your disgusting self. It’s a sad day to see the Republican Party has installed men like you who are neither for justice, equality or this nation. Melissa Harris Perry takes aim at Scalia…http://video.msnbc.msn.com/melissa-harris-perry/51017508
 
 

ASPARTAME IN MILK WITHOUT A LABEL? Big Dairy Petitions FDA For Approval – No one in their right mind would willingly use aspartame. It has been linked to all sorts of disease and illness. Yet, big dairy is trying to shove this down our throats without warning. This is a good reason to eliminate milk from your diet.

Crazy Pro-Gun Republicans Claim Obama is Raising Private Black Army to Massacre Whites – So how does an African, socialist, marxist, communist, alien (yes, some idiots believe Obama is from another planet!) convince blacks to create a private army? Word to these racists: blacks represent 13% of this country and don’t arm themselves on the order that paranoid whites do. Too bad the GOP is blocking social programs. We need massive mental facilities and rehab for these nuts. http://tvnewslies.org/tvnl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=27426&Itemid=39
 
 
A dear friend wrote: WE ARE WITNESSING THE REGURGITATION OF HATE FROM THE DESCENDANTS OF THE CIVIL WAR…THE POTUS HAS CAUSED A RUMBLING IN THE GUT OF THE GHOSTS OF THE CONFEDERATES AND THEIR OFFSPRING! THE EVIL THAT WE ARE WITNESSING IS THE BY PRODUCT OF THE CONFEDERATE SOULS AND THEIR PAST AND PRESENT ALLIES WHO ARE WILLING TO BLOW THE BIT##H UP RATHER THAN SHARE THIS COUNTRY WITH THOSE THAT ARE NOT STRAIGHT… WHITE AND RICH!!!! … THE SAME COUNTRY THAT THE DUMB ASSES TOOK FROM THE NATIVES….AND HISPANICS THAT THEY BLOCK EVERY DAY AND WHO KIDNAPPED AFRICANS FROM A FAR AWAY LAND TO CLEAN UP THE MESS!

THESE SAME CONFEDERATE APPARITION DESCENDANTS ARE THRASHING ABOUT IN A EXORCISTIC RAGE BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEIR DAYS ARE NUMBERED!

BURN IT…BURN IT ALL! JOHN BOEHNER…YOU AND YOUR HOUSE WILL PAY AND PAY DEARLY…..

(Note: While my friend talks of burning it all down, I understand him to mean the system is broken, immoral and needs to be torn apart. I fully agree. I believe the only solution is a revolution at this point. ~Marion)
 
 
Piranha cover-up in South Carolina. The people of South Carolina are just now learning about the piranha in their waters. Ignorant, irresponsible fools who dump unwanted deadly fish, reptiles, animals chemicals and the kitchen sink into the environment are responsible for this.

THE MARKETING OF MADNESS: ARE WE ALL INSANE?
“In this film you’ll discover that many of the drug side effects may actually make ‘mental illness’ worse. Psychiatric drugs can induce aggression or depression. Some psychotropic drugs prescribed to children are more addictive than cocaine. Psychiatric diagnoses appears to be based on dubious science. Of the 297 mental disorders contained with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, none can be objectively measured by pathological tests.

Mental illness symptoms within this manual are arbitrarily assigned by a subjective voting system in a psychiatric panel. It is estimated that 100 million people globally use psychotropic drugs. [That’s 1/3 of the population!

The Marketing of Madness exposes the real insanity in our psychiatric ‘health care’ system: profit-driven drug marketing at the expense of human rights.

This film plunges into an industry corrupted by corporate greed and delivers a shocking warning from courageous experts who value public health over dollar.

Obama Family Chili Recipe


 
 
President Obama and the First Lady prepare for Inauguration Day with an official swearing in ceremony on Sunday, January 20. The next day will be the ceremonial swearing in, followed by a parade and balls. Schedule is here. This is only the 2nd time in my 62 years that I have been excited over a President’s inauguration (2009 being the first) because it wasn’t until Obama was elected President have I ever been proud to be an American and feel part of this society. If your grandmother had been born into slavery as mine was, and you had spent all your years dealing with racism, you’d probably feel the same.
 
 

I would love to attend the parade on Monday and celebrate with all the people for this historic event. Seeing as I will have to watch it from home, I decided to prepare this Obama Family Chili recipe for my family. It’s a healthy, tasty one!
