It’s hard to think of anything conservative America hasn’t blamed on Barrack Obama. I’ve often wondered what might have been if America’s first black leader wasn’t shackled with “Hussein” as a middle name. “Hussein” is a terrifying moniker, punctuate that with “Obama” to witness battalions of righteous “patriots” clucking over the demise of a nation.
Donald Trump wasted no time, collecting his indignant bouffant long enough to offer $1 million for Obama to produce his birth certificate. Trump managed to grandstand a percolating sentiment grumbling in the belly of disgruntled America – holy crap, our President is Muslim. Overnight, a nation built on principles of inclusion, freedom and constitutional rights, locked their doors anticipating certain implementation of Sharia Law. Truth no longer mattered, Obama’s fate was sealed.
Conservative America managed to wriggle away from George W. Bush’s excruciatingly long fart by blaming Obama. Never mind Obama’s re-election – conservatives claimed is was part of some insidious horror. Petulant right wing bullies spun asinine tales of failure – the economy, foreign policy, education, racial tension – in their minds, Obama stood to take down a nation of reasonable patriots.
As the Baltimore riots elevated racial tensions, Donald Trump took an opportunity to open his vacant mouth. Perhaps encouraged by Lou Dobbs at Fox News..
“I think there is a war on law enforcement in this country, and it was corroborated if not condoned by this administration.”
Or Keith Ablow..
“If you want to tear down the system, you might be taking your cues, by the way, from a president who has given the appearance that there is every justification for any level of anger at our country because we’re such despicable people.”
Trump wrote in a mocking Tweet…
“Our great African American president hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”
How dare Trump call himself an American? How dare legions of “talking heads” at Fox blither righteously over failure of a black man to right civil wrongs orchestrated by decades of abuse and white entitlement? What is wrong with you America – can’t you see what’s happening?
