IT IS VERY SAD AS YOU BEING A BLACK PERSON AND TELLING LIE’S ABOUT OF GREAT PRESIDENT. PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE CALLED UNCLE-TOMMS. YOUR JUST ANOTHER WHITE MAN’S UNCLE-TOMM TO TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF BECAUSE YOU CAN’T DO IT ANY OTHER WAY BUT TRASHING OUR PRESIDENT. SHAME ON YOU. I HOPE YOU FAIL IN LIFE, YOUR DOING A GREAT JOB OF GOING THERE NOW.
I received the above email Saturday. This poor tortured soul is representative of that element of the human species who having bought a lie, finds that he doesn’t know what to do with it now that he has it. He’s angry and resentful against me, because the lie he bought hasn’t done for him what he thought it would.
I find it fascinating that his kind call me a liar. What exactly am I lying about? A google search of “Obama lies” returns 53,700,000 similar items. It’s reasonable to expect not all of these are true. With that said, how many of them would need be outright false, before it made my comments about Obama lies?
Why is it that any man, woman, or child who refuses to buy into the plantation mentality and hate whitey is called an “Uncle Tom?” Why is telling the truth about Obama viewed as trashing him? Why does he deserve what no other president has been afforded, a holiday from criticism?
Notice Eugene’s “shame” on me comment and his wish for me “to fail at life.” Let’s return to my first paragraph. If his life is so wonderful being filled with hatred and resentment, why would he take time to be derisive toward me? If anger is such a reward why take time to attempt to insult me?
What he doesn’t realize, then again even if he does, that notwithstanding, it’s not me he’s upset with, it’s himself and his inner turmoil. He bought a lie and it’s not what he thought it would be. He received an invitation to come to an elaborate dinner – the problem is when he arrived, he found the dinner to be a Feast of Barmecide instead. And now he is bitter, but rather than look in the mirror and tell himself the ability to change is his decision to make, he would rather lash out like a petulant little child. This is what the people who bought the lie are reduced to. Name calling and envy. In this individual’s case, finding he was unable to compete in the war of ideas, he resorted to name calling. Not being able to gain traction through name calling, he stooped to a left handed, condescending attempt at insult by making what was understood to be an attack on my 92 year old mother. He thought I was not intelligent enough to know he was saying “f*#* you” to my mother while pretending to say hello to her. It was vulgar and morally opprobrious, but obviously not out out of character for him.
Well guy, tell me how that’s working out for you. Does it make you feel better? Especially when you try to insult someone, who couldn’t care less what you think.
