The mood in the country has gone from bad to worse. Just when you think the country has truly evolved, by electing a black man to the presidency and by finally overcoming the big insurance lobby to get a start on reforming health care for all Americans, the dark side of democracy which perpetuated slavery for over 100 years comes back to rear its ugly head in the shape of a tea bag.
I refuse to dignify the tea baggers with the distinction of calling their cause a movement. A gang of rednecks who can’t stomach a black man in the oval office are out here trying anything to make the president of the United States fail to accomplish anything no matter how good it is for the country. They call him socialist, they say he is not a born American, they call him a dictator, they just stop short of calling him what they really want to call him and it rhymes with bigger. They call him uppity. Those in my audience of color know full well what that means. The tea baggers are mobilized and determined to destroy anyone who assists the president in accomplishing anything.
Where was all this “patriotism” while the Bush administration was really taking away personal freedoms. Where were these voices as they led this country into a war for oil. Oil which the country has not seen a drop of, by the way. Where were their voices as that administration thoroughly destroyed any good will we may have had in the world? Conspicuously SILENT!!!! Oh, I see, they saw no threat in any of that behavior because a twanging Texas buffoon and his master, the then vice president were the right skin color.
Politicians who have stoked the high pitch of the dangerous rhetoric and atmosphere of hate and calling it just politics deserve to be called what they are. A bunch of race baiting, fear mongering, hypocrites who would rather see defeat for the other side at any cost should be and largely are, rejected by any thinking human being. Call it all by the name it deserves, BIGOT!!
Refuse to be afraid of becoming the America that we can be. A land where neighbors care about each other regardless of what color they are, the name they use for their creator, and who they sleep with. America deserves better from our elected officials and must hold those that would bully the citizenry into following their path of “win at all costs”. It is all about power and control of the masses.
