Oh yeah, we’re post-racist all right…

October 17, 2008 § 9 Comments

Yes, yes you are trash. Or is that too insulting for self-respecting landfill materiel?

Just some freaks? Really? How about fine Americans like this one (h/t)?

I sidled up to one of the Obama supporters and asked why they were there, what they were trying to accomplish.

As he was telling me a large, bearded man in full McCain-Palin campaign regalia got in his face to yell at him.

“Hey, hey,” I said. “I’m trying to interview him. Just a minute, okay?”

The man began to say something about how of course I was interviewing the Obama people when suddenly, from behind us, the sound of a pro-Obama rap song came blaring out of the windows of a dorm building. We all turned our heads to see Obama signs in the windows.

This was met with curses, screams and chants of “U.S.A” by McCain-Palin folks who crowded under the windows trying to drown it out and yell at the person playing the stereo.

It was a moment of levity in an otherwise very tense situation and so I let out a gentle chuckle and shook my head.

“Oh, you think that’s funny?!” the large bearded man said. His face was turning red. “Yeah, that’s real funny…” he said.

And then he kicked the back of my leg, buckling my right knee and sending me sprawling onto the ground.

or these fine Americans? (h/t: Mike the Mad)

Upon entering Starbucks, I immediately realized that the McCain/Palin folks were having a little meeting. …

As soon as the last member of their group came in, they prayed.  In their prayer they begged that God “deliver the country from the evil socialists” and even prayed that “Obama find God”.

… The next person lamented that their whole office was voting for Obama.  The McCain/Palin supporters called that person’s co-workers “sinners” and said that they “needed Jesus”. …

They talked a little more about how Obama would destroy our country with “free health care” and “gay marriages”.  The feared his daughters would probably play loud rap music in the White House while world leaders were staying.  They feared that Muslim would become our official religion.  One of them even feared that “the Muslim language would be taught in schools.”  Priceless.

… One woman even thought that God may be punishing the country by giving us Obama.

At that time, I decided to pull out my laptop.  You see, I have an Obama sticker on it.  Well, one of them noticed and gave the rest of them a look and said SHHHH!  One of the men didn’t notice and kept talking.  He said that “Obama is part of a sleeper cell and he will use our own nuclear weapons against us.”  One of the women nodded her head in agreement.  Finally, the woman who noticed me said in a soft voice, “there’s an Obama supporter behind us…BE QUIET”.  The group suddenly got quiet.

They changed the subject for a while, but on the way out the door one of the men told me “you are a disgrace to white people if you vote for that man.”

People, you are a fucking disgrace to Americans if you spout this shit. If God is doing any punishing, it is foisting the likes of you on this great country.
