Here’s an uncomfortable and difficult question – If we’re so racist, wasn’t it an act of either rampant evil or gross stupidity to install Barack Obama as POTUS during a time when America and its government absolutely had to pull together?
Put aside your ingrained knee-jerk reaction and actually think about that question for a moment or two or, hopefully, a bit longer.
If America truly is such a racist country and that racism is wholly and solely a “White Problem,” what was anyone thinking by putting a Black man in the White House during a national crisis? If the Liberals, Progressives, and Blacks are right about the American people they had to know that no good would come from such an act, that Obama would accomplish nothing while in office, and that this would further imperil our nation.
If we accept their postulate – though we know the danger of such postulates – that any and all dissent against Obama is because Americans just can’t stand the thought of a Black man as POTUS, then the only question left is whether or not the Liberals, Progressives, and Blacks installed Obama with the full expectation of his being balked at every turn due to racism.
If they knew in their hearts that this would happen, then it was an overt act of evil on their part. It would have to be classed an attempt to destroy America. If, on the other hand, they thought that things wouldn’t go that way and that Obama would be allowed to do whatever he wanted while in office, they were just stupid.
Either way, evil or stupid, if the Liberals, Progressives, and Blacks are right about America being a racist nation, their voting for Obama in 2008 was not done with the best interests of America in mind. That’s something that they really can’t get around or make excuses for.
