President Obama has taken an unprecedented amount of hatred from his detractors on the right. You know, the ones with “ODS”, otherwise known as Obama Derangement Syndrome. The folks who blame everything that is wrong with their lives on the president, despite the fact that their lives were plenty shitty long before January of 2009 rolled around.
The examples of Obama-bashing and words used to describe him are everything but endless.
He is a tar baby, a liar and a Nazi. Together with a socialist. Don’t forget fascist.
Which is like saying someone supports both the NAACP and the KKK.
Does anyone remember the good old days of Secret Service and protecting the President? One time, a conservative young couple was arrested because they failed to leave a speech given by then George W. Bush. The man and woman both had on tee-shirts with the word Bush, overlaid by the universal against sign.
Just like in the movie Ghostbusters.
Wow. A t-shirt.
Early in Obama’s Presidency a person strolled into a town meeting with a machine gun.
And now, a page on Facebook called “War on Freedom” made a meme, seen at the top of this article in case you missed it, with a picture of Obama and the message “I vote we take this f**k*r out and hang him”.
The part where some idiot on that page made the offending meme might not even be the worst part of this. No, the worst part was where – at the time the image of the meme was captured – 80 people had shared the meme on Facebook, which means that those people liked the message on the meme so much that they put them on their own Facebook pages.
Lovely, huh? Hopefully, you don’t have friends on Facebook who advocate such a message.
The entire “War on Freedom” page was finally removed after many complaints came rolling in to the guardians of Facebook.
But there are more of them. Countless Facebook pages are devoted to our President and all permutations of racial stereotypes, including apes, afros and fist bumps.
Not to mention the multitude of pages that are calling for his demise.
Right Conservatives, it’s never about race.
