Let's cut through the bullshit here, much like Chris Matthews did on Morning Starbucks with Joe today. The GOP strategy right now is simple: The Democratic Party is a bunch of niggers, with a nigger leading them. Do you want to be a nigger lover or, even worse, a nigger yourself?"
Sure, if the only other choice is being a Repug.
With this being an incredibly white ticket of an incredibly white political party (90% of Republicans are white), what the GOP is doing in this election is to make a last stand for the innate good of the white male, the white patriarchy, if you will, as knowing best how everyone should behave. When they say, as Romney has, that they are what's best for women and non-whites, the not-so-subtle message is the same as every pasty European who ever confronted the natives after walking off a boat: "We may want to strip you of all your natural resources and enslave you, but you can put your trust in us. As long as you don't try to stop us, we won't hurt you."
In other words, it's not the rage of Barack Obama that's driving this election. It's the rage of the white colonizers who are afraid of losing any of their power over the colonized.
They are scared shitless of the changing demographic in America and can't do a damn thing about it except lie, cheat, and steal the vote to keep everybody who doesn't not-think like them under their heel.
Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, white, black, brown, red, whatever, we're ALL niggers to them.
All those so-called "good" Christians seem to have forgotten, or choose to ignore, this too:
Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They're all precious in his sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world
I can hear them now: "What do you mean Jesus gives a shit about them after they're born?! You must be some kinda commie!"
I know that had nothing to do with the first part of the post but I threw it in anyway. It's all part of the wingnut mindset they want to impose on us.
