BARAK OBAMA HAS DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY ALONG MANY LINES

A meme from “Go Left” appeared on my Facebook news feed stating the following: “People yell that President Obama has divided America. But Obama didn’t divide our country, their unwarranted hatred of him did. Electing him was like turning on a light in a dark room and exposing the cockroaches.”

There are differences of opinion on how we should govern ourselves because our founding fathers set up our nation that way. Because of the way this nation was set up, we have the right to voice our opinions without fear of government reprisal.

There’s not one issue with which I agree with Barak Obama, and I have the right to say that. Since Obama has been in office, he has “trashed” Republicans repeatedly. Plus in the first term of his presidency, he called upon folks to listen for any comments that disparaged his policies and agenda. This is in contrast to former President George W. Bush, who, many times indicated that Americans had the right to disagree with him. President Bush even met with parents, spouses, and other family members of those military personnel who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but were against the wars.

Barak Obama was elected to the presidency to be the president of all Americans, not just Democrats, not just blacks and other minorities. Instead of being the president of the United States, Barak Obama didn’t waste any time in interjecting himself into a local level dust-up in which he had no business becoming involved. This incident involved Professor Louis Gates, Jr., a black professor, who was returning to his Cambridge, Massachusetts home after a trip to China. Finding the door to his house jammed, he was trying to open it when he was arrested by police Sargent James Crowley. Sargent Crowley was responding to a 911 call in which the caller reported there were men breaking and entering Gates’ residence. Gates was never charged.

On July 22, 2009, six days after the incident, Barak Obama said the following: “I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that…the police acted stupidly…there is a history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.” Subsequently a “beer summit” was held at the White House where Professor Gates and Officer Crowley were treated to beers with Obama.

Again, this was something in which the current president should have never involved himself. It was a low-level local matter. If the local NAACP wanted to get involved, that would probably be okay, but the incident was nothing close to the level where the leader of the free world should be putting his priorities, including protecting the people of this country, aside to become involved in a local dust-up.

The cases of Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were also local level incidents where the president had no business interjecting himself into, much less sending a representative to the funeral of Michael Brown, a thug who, before he was shot, robbed a convenience store and then while being apprehended, tried to take Police Officer Darren Wilson’s gun away. Subsequently, representatives of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, which arose out of the Michael Brown shooting, was predicated on a lie, and currently advocates the killing of law enforcement officers and the destruction of property, were invited to the White House.

Not only has this president sought to divide this country along racial lines, he has sought to divide us along socio-economic lines. He has constantly harped that the rich don’t pay enough in taxes and has told low and middle income individuals that the rich are evil and anyone who is rich somehow became that through nefarious actions. He has further indicated that the rich, particularly the rich Republicans hate the poor and want them to suffer when, in reality, it is the other way around. Because no one ever got rich receiving entitlements such as food stamps and welfare from the government, we want as many folks as possible to be off these programs so they can prosper.

The president and his henchmen have also led lower and middle income individuals to believe that the Republicans don’t care about the environment by constantly preaching the doctrine of man-made climate change. This administration and its followers have also indicated that Republicans want dirty air, dirty water, and to throw Grandma off the cliff (a phrase often used by conservative commentator, Sean Hannity). In the liberals’ quest to gain as much control over our lives as they possibly can, they have demonized fossil fuels and fracking, an innovative way to safely and efficiently extract oil natural gas from beneath the earth’s surface. Fracking was developed by the private sector oil companies…the government had nothing to do with it, except for trying to shut the process down. Because of this innovation, energy prices have decreased, giving low income and middle income individuals some much needed relief.

Of course, the liberals would have you believe that they are champions of lower and middle class individuals and that the Republicans only champion the rich. Well, the “tolerant” left won’t even acknowledge that there is information available that refutes man-made climate change. They are so anxious to cram that theory down our throats and to preach to the American people that unless we immediately get off fossil fuels and go to green energy, we’re doomed. But as President Obama indicated, the price of energy will necessarily rise. The president wants energy costs to rise so we’ll use less of it. If this president and the liberals were really champions of the poor and the middle class, they would be anxious for any discovery out there which would delineate the climate change theory.

Thus, we’re just as divided along socio-economic lines as racial lines.

And let’s not forget religious lines. Even though this president claims to be a Christian, he never misses a change to disparage Christianity. However, when it comes to Islam, he constantly advises the American people to not judge the nation or religion of Islam based on the actions of a few. Of course, after Dylan Roof, the shooter of black church members in Charleston, was seen in a picture on social media with a Confederate battle flag, anyone who so much as owns a Confederate flag belt buckle was labeled a racist, a white supremacist, etc. The president has also referred to Christians and gun owners as “clinging to their guns and their Bibles.”

I don’t see how anyone in their right mind, could say that hatred for Barak Obama divided this country. It was Obama, his administration and liberals at all levels who have divided this country, not the unwarranted hatred of him as the “tolerant” left would have you believe.

JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT CAN’T GET ANYMORE RIDICULOUS!

Earlier this week, MSNBC host, Melissa Harris-Perry took offense to a conservative guest, Alfonso Aguilar, using the term “hard worker” to describe Congressman Paul Ryan in his quest to be elected Speaker of the House. Ms. Harris-Perry argued that the term, “hard worker,” diminished the experiences of slaves.

While Ms. Harris-Perry agreed with Mr. Aguilar that Paul Ryan was a “great choice for this role,” she also said, “But I want us to be super careful when we use the language, “hard worker.” Ms. Harris-Perry further indicated that she kept an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall, because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like.

To a baffled Alfonso Aguilar, Ms. Harris-Perry also intimated that you don’t call Moms who don’t have healthcare, hardworking. Instead, you call them failures.

This is so ridiculous that it will certainly go away. But to think that we have people as demented as Ms. Harris-Perry on TV as news anchors and analysts is scary. Of course, liberals are going to say, “What about Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity?” I’ve never head Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity say anything disparaging about black people as a race. Sure, they may denigrate individuals for their liberalism, but, again, I have never heard either one of them put down black people.

A few hours ago, a Facebook friend who is black and far-left, posted an article on vox.com that was entitled, “Even Walking is more Dangerous if you’re Black.” The article insinuates that white drivers don’t yield to black pedestrians like they do to white pedestrians. It was also insinuated that this could perhaps be subconscious racism. The far left has been pushing the notion that all white people are inherently racist. So, I guess this is one more thing liberals will use against whites, in their quest to annihilate them.

Let me add another thing. At night black people are harder to see than someone white. And while black liberals tend to blame the white people for all their problems, this is one problem that the white person had nothing to do with. Black liberals, you’re going to have to take this up with the man upstairs. In the meantime, if you’re going walking at night, it’s best to wear light colored clothing. In fact wearing light colored clothing at night is recommended for all people.

In addition to the above, a liberal Facebook friend shared a split photograph. The top of the photograph was a still shot of the deputy that flipped over the desk of a black girl when she refused to leave her classroom after being ordered to do so for bad behavior. The bottom of the photograph was a picture of police, after arresting Dylan Roof. Roof was walking with the police and did not seem to be resisting arrest. The captions on the photos read as follow: (1) How you arrest a black girl who refused to leave a class; and (2) How you arrest a white man who shot 9 people at church.

First, the picture of Dylan Roof doing the perp walk was taken after he was arrested and he appeared to show no resistance to arrest. The picture of the deputy turning the black girl’s desk over in order to get her moved from the classroom was taken during the altercation in which she refused to leave the classroom. The two really cannot be compared. Furthermore, the deputy, Ben Fields has been fired and the altercation has been denounced by Richland County Sheriff’s Department. So what more do you want? What more can be done?

This particular photograph originated at the Facebook page of Jonas Saintilus. After visiting his Facebook page, it sure looks like he is a radical Muslim. He claims to be a soldier of the Nation of Islam who studied black empowerment, ancient history, science, and knowledge of self at new world nation of Islam. In addition to having anti-white photos on his website, one of those photos stated the following: “The only white man you can trust is a dead white man.”

I intend to confront my liberal friend with this. This guy appears to be radical and dangerous.
