The Birthers and Jim Crow 2.0

From The Root:

These loud-mouthed robber barons bedevil national Republicans. But the party knows the fear and anger they stoke is nonetheless as useful as ever in the heat of battle, because convincing poor whites to hurt themselves remains a powerful tool for blocking reform. The ugly mobs of GOP operatives-turned-grass-roots activists at this summer’s town hall meetings are only incidentally fighting health care reform. Their real purpose is to show how frustrated whites can direct their anger at Democrats. Feeling poor, white and out of sight? It’s because that black guy’s trying to reshape America without you. Get him!

Fox’s Glenn Beck said it best: “Everything that is getting pushed through Congress, including this health care bill, are transforming America, and they’re all driven by President Obama’s thinking on one idea: reparations.” And Limbaugh, back in November: “The objective is an expanding welfare state. And the objective is to take the nation’s wealth and return to it to the nation’s quote, ‘rightful owners.’ Think reparations. Think forced reparations.” (Your lips to God’s ears, Rush.)

b Says I Hate My Readers

I hate my readers. How do I know? Cuz b tells me so:

I’ve read your blog for 5 years and I like it a lot. But if you dislike blogging or your readers so much maybe this isn’t the best occupation for you.


Something tells me that you’re still angry at ‘Michael’ (I think was his name) for expressing his opinion of your Ingersoll quotes.

Either that or this is some demonstration of your general disdain for your readership.

and again:

You really don’t seem to like most of your readers.

and again

You shouldn’t get so mad at your readers. If they didn’t like your blog then they wouldn’t read it.

Isn’t b precious? I swear I could put b on a plate and sop him up with a biscuit. Rest assured b, I love all my readers as if they were my very own children whom I had to put in front of Obama’s Death Panels to get rid some of the not so bright ones (if you know what I’m saying).

Wait, does b think this is my occupation? Paging Dr. Emanuel
