I Hate to Keep Harping on This…


But, I have to keep harping on the near feeding frenzy amongst Obama supporters. Just from last week’s two political posts, I got three threatening emails and three vulgar comments which I deleted. One of the emails threatened my life. I turned that over to both the FCC and local law enforcement. It’s no sense in trying to deal with people this neurotic.

You can say this was simply an isolated case. The vast majority of Obama supporters are law abiding citizens caught up in the historic moment. Fair enough. I’m sure it was an “isolated case” with a young woman being robbed at an ATM. When the robber saw she had a McCain bumper sticker on her car, he mutilated her by carving a “B” onto her face. I’ll let you figure what message he was trying to send there. [Editor's Note: Since posting of this blog entry, this case was proven to be completely made up by this disturbed young woman]

Of course, there was also “another” one of those “isolated” cases in Longwood, FL where a home was shot up by shotgun blasts. The man, the manager for the Central Florida Republican Party, said he always has gotten along with his neighbors. His sin is having two John McCain signs in his front yard. The victim, Rog Coverely said, “Democrats are far more aggressive in Seminole County.” Yeah, I’d say you are right, Rog. Getting a shotgun blast to your house is a pretty good indication of that.

In my very best Katie Couric imitation, “Oh and now we have another accident” in Washington D.C. where some church-state group called “Americans United for Separation of Church and State” has sent a letter to the IRS due to Roman Catholic bishop Arthur Serratelli’s condemnation of Senator Obama’s position on abortion. You see, Bishop Serratelli thought that this pesky old thing called Freedom of Speech extended to blasting The Annointed One on just one single issue; abortion. But, that didn’t stop “Americans United etc.,” from going after him anyway!!! God Bless those people! Now, let me go Google and see where they wrote the IRS about the racist “Rev.” Jeremiah Wright’s blasting, from the pulpit, whites, jews, mom, apple pie and Chevrolet. Um…eh…uh…well, there doesn’t appear to be any. I’m sure they did. It just isn’t being reported for some very good reason, right? Seriously, what part of the following quote is not a violation of church and state; “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost.” Isn’t that a bit of a political statement? Just a wee bit?

But, it is only one issue, right? I’m sure “Americans United etc”., just accidentally missed that one. I’m sure they even missed this one; “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.” Wouldn’t that be, let’s see…how did “Americans United etc” put it? Oh, yes, now I remember, “illegal partisanship?” I will wait for “Americans United etc.” to belatedly call out Rev. Wright over these remarks. Seriously, I will wait. And wait…and wait…and wait…
