This cannot end soon enough, and I fear the worst. This morning driving, more than half of the Obama signs along the side of the road had acquired an "N" stenciled above his name over night. Classy bunch I live with.
But, let's face it, the stencilers are being fed by McCain and his ugly crew. My New York Times informed me this morning (before I had a chance to shovel some undercooked oatmeal down my throat) that "socialist" is the word people attending McCain rallies most use to describe Obama.
Now, I am an older gentleman who remembers the word being used to describe Eugene Debs who died more than a half century ago. Let's face it folks, the word "socialist" hasn't been part of the discussion since at least the Eisenhower Administration.
So, what's going on here? It's simple. "Socialist" = "Nigger". You think I'm kidding? Well, my 85 year old mother will instruct you. She says, about Obama, "There's something about him I just don't like". I say " You mean because he's black?" "Oh no, I would never say that", she replies. Of course, she's right. She would never say that, nor would anyone else.
So, we say "He's a socialist" Wait, you say, "what's that got to do with being black?"
Well, I say, plenty. "Socialist", during my formative years meant "crazy", "radical" "eastern european", "shady".
What it means these days, or what McCain and his scum cronies have latched onto is that it means "He's not one of us". So, you can call Obama a socialist and you are basically saying he's not one of us, he's the black devil.
For this reason alone, McCain should be drawn and quartered. I know he's a "war hero" (we lost that one by the way), but dude has dined out on that shit for 40 years. Enough.
