In this trying time in US history, we are being told by the media that we need to blindly follow this "Great Leader" as he plays the Pied Piper and leads us off a cliff. However, If we choose to think for ourselves (like the forefathers of this nation did when they formed this great experiment) and challenge these radical ideals and policies, we are called racist. Janeane Garofalo said the Tea Parties were about hating a black man, and that it was "racism straight up." As I recall, Martin Luther King Jr. famously dreamed that his "four children [would] one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." In some way we have lived to see his dream.
We have seen the content of Obama's character, and we have found it wanting. His Utopian vision of society -- a socialist vision -- is antithetical to American values. It is not racism that drives us to criticize Obama's policies, it is Patriotism.
As many of you know, Obama is half white; therefore, I will direct any further criticisms of Obama to that half. But then, the racist epithet just doesn't work anymore -- the times, they are a changin'.
