Sludge washes over us

In America there is a large crowd of angry white people and few African-American wannabes who have been in competition to make the most absurd, racist and vile comments about President Obama. Whether it’s calling him the anti-christ, a nazi, a communist, a racist, a socialist, a secret Kenyan or Muslim or making fun of his looks, the sludge keeps piling up. I’ve never seen such hatred for one man since Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.  There are few facts to back up any of these accusations and facts really aren’t the point.

 

We know that none of these things are true but it’s useful; for the accusers to poison the atmosphere. We need to bring out the hoses and rinse away the sludge. Let’s have a true and honest discussion about President Obama and what we think of his positions. It would be asking too much to hope that the haters would be flushed down the sewers.
