Really Sad, But True!

The following is important. It’s written by an individual who shares observations of the last seven years. I hope you’ll read along and consider Mr. Schaeffer’s words. I think God agrees with him.

The Slow Lynching of President Barack Obama

“I’ve just spent the last 7 years writing over 200,000 words in blogs and articles in support of President Obama. My blogs on the Huffington Post alone would add up to a book in support of the President of over 300 pages. Weirdly, I just realized that through all my writing, this has been the first time in my life I’ve personally gone to bat for a black man. It just happens that he’s a president. But my emotional stake in his life is now personal.

So I’ve changed from a white guy who used to read news about some black man getting shot or beaten by cops or stand-your-ground types who assumed that the black man must have “done something,” to a white guy who figures that the black man was probably getting lynched. I’ve changed ideology but I’ve also changed my gut intuitive reactions.

I’ve changed because if this country will lynch a brilliant, civil, kind, humble, compassionate, moderate, articulate, black intellectual we’re lucky enough to have in the White House, we’ll lynch anyone. What chance does an anonymous black man pulled over in a traffic stop have of fair treatment when the former editor of the Harvard Law Review is being lynched?

One famous liberal commentator wrote a book on how Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neil could disagree and still be friends. Why, he asked on many a TV show promoting his book, couldn’t President Obama be like that? Because, I yelled at the screen, those two men were white Irish Americans and part of a ruling white oligarchy.

Because, I yelled, you might as well ask why Nelson Mandela didn’t talk his jailers in South Africa into seeing reason.

Because, I yelled, the President is black and anytime he’s reached out he’s pulled back a bloody stump.

Because, I yelled, liberal white commentators have been as bothered by a black man in the White House, who’s smarter than they are as much as right wing bigots have been bothered.

Because, I yelled, President Obama has been lied about, attacked, vilified, and disrespected since Day One.

Because, I yelled, this country may have passed laws so blacks can vote and eat in a white man’s world, but in our hearts we’re stuck in a place more like 1952 than 2013.

We’ve been watching a slow motion lynching of a moderate brilliant family man, a father, and faithful loving husband. The Republicans in Congress are so dedicated to lynching the President they’ve been willing to shut down our government and risk the future of our economy.

Evangelical “Christians” have been so stuck on putting a rope around this black man’s neck they have denied their faith and been the backbone of the lying Tea Party who spawned the so-called “birthers” and the rest of the white people driving our news cycle.

Roman Catholic bishops have denied their tradition of helping the poor and been so eager to destroy this president they aligned themselves with white Evangelical bigots and tried to stop health care reform, all because the President wants to give women a fair shake. The bishops even called him “anti-religious” because the president wants insurers to pay for contraception.

This is a slow motion lynching of a black man who is so moderate and centrist that he favored Wall Street enough so that the Left is all over his case. He’s so “radical” and “leftist” and “hates America” so much, and “coddles our enemies” so much, that he killed bin Laden and used drones to kill our enemies. He’s such a “socialist” that he presided over the revival of our economy from the worst recession since the Great Depression, and led us to the present day stock market boom. President Obama is such a “Marxist” that he tried to give insurance – not socialized medicine – to all Americans.

President Obama never answered back to the disgusting southern right wing rubes from the former slave states that have tried to belittle, mock and stymie his presidency shouting “You lie” in a million ways, while actually meaning “You lie, nigger!”

And did the “enlightened” Left have President Obama’s back? No. They carp about his “failure” because a website was slow to get running! The white privileged “progressive” few were too busy blaming him for getting lynched and telling him how to craft policy while a rope was put around his neck again and again and tightened with each filibuster, each lie told on the radio, each self-defeating scorched earth action to stop him from succeeding, even if it meant taking us all down too.

We don’t like to admit who we really are. So we make excuses and blame the victim. I’m ashamed for our country, a country my Marine son fought for in two stupid wars this president has been working to end. And I’m still rooting for the best, smartest and most decent man who has been president in my lifetime. I pray for his health care reform to succeed. I pray for his immigration reform to succeed. I’m amazed he’s gotten anything done, but he has, even while the lynch mob gathers again and again to laugh, lie and spit and claim he’s “failed” while “liberal” commentators nod sagely and talk about his “mistakes” as if President Obama has been playing on a level playing field.

We have a lot to do to heal this country of the damage done by the right wing Obama-haters and the Left wing know-it-all pundits who did not have his back because they don’t have the honesty to admit that we still live in a backward racist swamp of prejudice. Maybe in 50 years our country will be worthy of someone of President Obama’s forbearance again. For now we can just hope that the hatred of the Republican Party for our first black president doesn’t drive us to the brink of ruin again as they strip food from the mouths of the poor, and try to get people to not sign up for health care, just to get even with the black man they swore to destroy from the day that “uppity” black who is smarter than all of them put together took the oath of office.

God bless you Mr. President. I’m praying for you. I am so very sorry. But take heart, in the long reach of history the door you opened will stay open for the millions of Americans of all colors, genders and beliefs who will follow you.

They will bless your name. So will history.”

  1. Hi Warrioress,

    Have you heard of Orango , the unfinished racist comedic opera by Dmitry Shostakovich made in 1932, during the communist era, at the very same time the nazis gained ground in Germany ?
    The USSR -then the most atheistic regime- was yet involved in racist experiments long before the nazis.
    Unfortunately , many people do not know how far the soviet scientists along with political propagandists were involved in the spread of infamous clichés tied to black people , with the support of the most powerful Americans and Europeans atheist associations.

    Let’s go back to Orango and the nasty story championed by this so-called hilarious opera.
    Orango ( means Orangutan) is a metaphor – or a subliminal message spread for ideological purposes – that depicts the black men in western countries who convert to Christianity.
    This could be Nelson Mandela , Barack Obama , Martin Luther King or Ben Carson…
    The atheists used to see blacks as half-ape, half-human ; that’s why Orango was supposed to be born from an ape , and eventually converted to Catholicism.
    Atheists like to mock religions and Africans ; before WW2 , atheists claimed that Christianity is so stupid that even n***r can become religious.

    Brief summary of the Tolstoy-Starchakov proposal for Orango :

    Act I — In a scientific experiment, a French biologist impregnates a female ape with human sperm. A journalist finds out and publishes an exposé that ignites a political and religious uproar. The biologist continues his research in secret and when the ape conceives, he ships her to a colleague in South America. In due course, he learns that the ape has given birth to a male hybrid which differs little from a baby born to a woman. Correspondence between the two scientists continues until the summer of 1914, when war breaks out in Europe.

    Act II — One evening after the end of World War I, a stranger knocks at the French biologist’s door, introducing himself as Jean Or, the adopted son of the biologist’s now-deceased South American colleague. The biologist recognizes the hybrid offspring of his 20-year-old experiment, introduces him to his daughter, and offers assistance. Eventually, the young “man” finds work on a newspaper owned and edited by the very journalist who had originally exposed the scientific experiment in which he was conceived. Or(ango) flourishes, becoming involved in shady dealings, blackmail and financial speculation. He rises rapidly to become the newspaper owner’s closest assistant and, ultimately, his successor.

    Act III — A rabid anti-Communist, Orango now wields enormous power, financial and political; he is an arbiter of taste and fashion. But he is frustrated in his desire to possess the French scientist’s daughter. She joins her father — now a communist sympathizer — and others in a campaign against the newspaper magnate. Orango marries a Russian émigré who has become a Parisian courtesan. His hatred of the working class and the Soviet Union festers. With the years, atavistic features in his face become more apparent; he becomes more and more like his mother. A scandal erupts after he tries to rape the scientist’s daughter and Orango is finally unmasked. He embraces the Catholic church for protection. But a world crisis breaks out and Orango goes bankrupt. The Pope rejects him. Orango goes mad. He degenerates entirely into an ape. His wife sells him to the circus. He is shown in a cage….

    Do you think that this story was born from scratch ?
    No , it wasn’t…
    Atheists really fancy hybridization.

    What I mean to say it’s that atheists were very much involved in racism during decades so that the Christian community must always stay suspicious when an atheist publicly claims his loath of racism.
    That said , this white atheist who supports Obama may be sincere ; but I think it’s legitimate to take the words of atheists with peculiar caution.

    Weirdly, atheists know a lot – that’s what they say – about Crusades and other religious wars but never have heard of the peculiarities of atheism in the demeaning of black people.

    Have a good evening !

  2. Well bust my button! I could have written this post exactly as it is. Will you please get out of my mind. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing this post. I strongly believe God is on president Obama’s side. This country is 100 % better off than when he took office. And despite all the scheming and plotting the economy continues to improve. Every sector has seen growth and Wall Street continues to rake in record profit. But all those achievements are still too little for the doubters.

    Thanks again! God bless

  3. This is sad in many ways. The most important line is, “…Mr. President, I am praying for you.”
    On a Baptist forum, one of the posters has this for his signature (now for almost seven years): “Have you prayed for the president, today?”
    More Christians need to be convicted by those words.

    That said, there is nothing Christian about supporting the murder of babies, Planned Parenthood, or sodomy.

  4. No labels no color. He is the President, I never really noticed he was black. The problem today is people tend to look at things as black and white, when the only difference is a few shades of gray.
    Well written post! God bless America and President Obama.
