When I see the Obama Family on TV or see President Obama I  usually smile.  Almost every time.  Because I simply cannot believe I lived to see this nice looking brown-skinned family in the White House.  It makes me feel clean somehow  – as if our country has considered the  good of the people and the nation and gone for a youngish, smart and hard-working chief of state .  I don’t think I’m alone in this  either and I hope not because he needs time and support to unglue the mess we’re in and make things better.  After an eight year ordeal with Mr. Bush – you’d think the GOP and its many sects of adherents would get behind him, tell their own people to support him and start to go forward in these difficult times.  (Drum roll – enter Steve Martin) But nooooooooooo.  And not just noooooooo, Nasty no!  Vicious no!  Name calling no!
 
 
No respect for the man at all, but that also means no respect for the office.  Every speech, meeting, movement , gesture is derided and dismissed instantly as a sign of what?   Oh, wait. “He’s a communist, he’s a socialist, he’s an unnatural citizen, he wants to steal from the rich and share the wealth with the rest. He thinks Americans – across the board, should have health care.  His very name is a traitorous betrayal – Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.  Now that’s not right.  He must be a Muslim and since he’s named after his black African father – he must have been born there too. He  has absolutely no use for the Jews and he hates whites in secret.  His wife’s arms are too bare and she is far too fit;  she is too tall, how dare she wear nice outfits,  and to top it off they have the same kind of dog that Ted Kennedy had.  That really is  over the top.  How dare he, she, they and the dog”.
 
I have a name for these people; these disruptive, Constitution chewing, greedy, mad tea partying GOP members.  I call them White Sheet Republicans.  I do not believe a single one even listens to the policies of or direction this president wants to take us.  I don’t believe they would even reject of it if it were suggested by a moderate GOP member.  They might mumble and growl and not agree with parts  – but I suggest the name calling would be minimal.  We must keep in mind that, under their protective covers they will do whatever it takes to keep their ball rolling backward.  They are extremely sore losers.   They believe  Sarah, Glenn and Rush are truth-telling, extreme intellectuals.  They gloat over lies that are told to discredit the current administration.  I would  suggest – that beneath their 800 thread count uniforms they make even make faces.  This is a group of vicious, nasty people.  People I would not break bread with.
 
 
But why “White Sheet Republicans“?  Are they ashamed of their party? Their platform?  Naaaah.  It’s because of what slips out far too often.  Because they feel the need to preface almost every nasty crack with, “don’t get me wrong, it’s not because he’s black” and because we absolutely know that it is very much because he’s black. And the proffered apologies are sung to the tune of Dixie.  Is it because he is not a son of the Stolen, descended from slaves.  None of these people’s people even stole his forebears – he has symbolically not sat in the back of the bus. So,  as much as he is rightfully embraced by most African-Americans – he really does present a unique and estimable president who speaks to all of us.   
Under the sheets, however, this doesn’t even register.  “”Bananas, chimpanzees, zoos, thick lips, nappy hair, doesn’t act or sound black “. (I suppose a disappointment to many in Dixie)  all creep out from under their hems. Of course it’s because he’s black.  God knows what a White Sheet GOP kaukus sounds like. 
 
 
Somewhere these White Sheet Republicans assumed  (probably before the Civil War) they would never have to worry about some Darkie running for president.   Both the old and new money, the right schools, the stiffest upper lip, the right address would keep that from ever happening.  Damn it, the Founding Fathers owned stolen black folks and there isn’t anything in the Constitution that says a slave can be president.  They are chattel. And so even the ones way down South living in the kudzu believe it too.  They may have tolerated Affirmative Action, but that tolerance did not include any action that could allow you to be President of the United States.  So when you read the vitriol and angry, personalized attacks on Mr. Obama – picture those White Sheet Republicans spinning out of control watching  Birth of A Nation, Bamboozled and all taking notes.  And be very concerned about all of them because they are definitely out of control.

Cross Your Fingers and Repeat After Me: “I Am Not A Bigot”. January 28, 2010

I would be stunned and relieved if even one of the loyal opposition to our current administration – instead of vehemently protesting “I am not a bigot” (sounding like you know who, who was “not a crook”) would say something like this:  “Well, I can’t say that I’m completely comfortable with having a black man as president.  I never thought it would happen in my time and it is such a new concept to me that it may be pushing buttons I thought I had overcome”.  Wouldn’t that be refreshing and honest?  Wouldn’t it help to explain why this president has been lambasted with some of the nastiest, vilest and unnecessary comments I have ever heard in my life about a sitting president.  For all the names I called Bush – and I did, I never imagined some of the things Mr. Obama has been accused of.   How does the GOP and its Republican zealots get anything else done?  Granted the arrival of Facebook and Twitter has brought us all to a new and possibly dangerous place in society.    And I suppose if we had these networks four years ago the fur would have flown then – but the people who actively hate our president are vitriolic and relentless.  If I had ever imagined Obama’s presidency was going to be a battleground of dirty fighting I might have continued my move toward Canada and said goodbye to Hollywood.

Rush to Judgement January 15, 2010

I thought by now I would have recovered from Rush Limbaugh’s screed on de black folks, de President and de Haitian disaster but I am not even close.  Is he a bigot, a crazy man, a crazy man bigot, an asshole, a piece of shit or all of these and some other things I can’t even imagine reading about in Grimms or Mein Kampf? (Yes – I said it).
 
Well – first of all and most important of all and down at the base of it all is color.  In this case black.   I believe, in my heart of hearts, that every morning white people wake up and think that the leader of the US will be white and when they realize it isn’t so, they flip out – in private and in public.  They just flip out.  They tear their white sheets and go insane.  Anyone who denies this is a hypocrite or has not had the fabulous advantage of living on this planet and seeing how black people have been demonized – after they built it all for ol’ white men.  If anyone can get past this self-evident truth, then maybe because Obama is the act that followed the clowns – no one can take it seriously. How could they really.   They are still recovering and laughing nervously at the last 8 years plus.  Worse still is that people all over the planet seem to really have some hope for the future of the future with this man in the White House.  Now if you subscribe to the conventional thinking that no one actually has any use for black people you will see how this conflict can arise. 
 
And so, Haiti, some little half an island near the US with odd, but close ties to this country, gets hit by a huge act of nature; a 7.0 earthquake, that knocks them flat. Flat, literally.  Knocks them dead and lost and damaged. And as if that isn’t bad enough – this is a little, struggling country whose population is at least 80% black.  Are you beginning to see a theme here?
 
Tune in to Rush, the fat fool who gives junkies a bad name,  whohas the President of the United States of America cackling evilly and rubbing his hands together because he can really ride this one to …where????  How can this one be exploited?  Oh sure – there will be scams and the bad people will not be rehabbed by this disaster – but to think- worse – to say – no worse  – to broadcast that Mr. Obama is happy this happened because he can make points with black people – of all shades – is – what?  What is it?  What do you call this kind of thinking?  What we do know – what we can posit without much fear of argument is that now we KNOW that Rush Limbaugh is a bigot.  He is a big, fat, bigot.  From the instant he uttered his screed on Haiti he showed us his hand and he is holding a deck of race cards.  From now on every person who listens to him and likes his beliefs will have to also know that he is a bigot.  That if he says the sky is blue – he is a bigot.  That if he says he didn’t have a heart attack – he is a bigot and if you like his message then you have been listening to the utterings of a bigot.  What does this make you?  A bigot?  I don’t know – ask yourself but know this – Rush Limbaugh is a bigot.  He almost makes Pat Robertson look like…less of a bigot.
