America, we have a problem. And I am not talking about the usual problems, like the fact that Republicans are trying to take away your health care, take away your social security, take away your jobs and as soon as they have made your life as miserable as possible, they give you machine guns and send you on your merry way.
No America, these are just small insignificant problems. According to Joe the Plumber and his website however, our major problem is the President of the United States, who happens to be a Democrat… and who hapoens to be black!
Joe the Plumber. You remember him right? He is the same one who skyrocketed to Republican fame back in the 2008 election when he was seen on video asking then candidate Obama a question about his tax policy. Mr. Obama answered, then included this phrase in his answer, “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
This statement was obviously taken out of context, but Joe was seen as a Republican hero for it. According to the Republicans, Joe got the President to admit his secret wish for “wealth redistribution and socialism.”
Joe the Republican hero plumber, also ran loosing campaign for the House of Representatives.
And now, Joe is back and he is armed with a website. And in one of the articles on Joe’s website the author details his reason for a white Republican in the White House.
That article, written by Kevin Jackson, challenges you to admit that you just miss the good old days when your President’s face was as white as snow. Now–you might start feeling like a little bit of a racist after coming to terms with your desire to have a white man leading your country, but don’t worry: the article was written by a black guy, allowing you to use it to justify your bigotry!
Isn’t this exciting?
Jackson, the monumental idiot, feels that:
election of a recognized black president was not supposed to change anything. In fact, it was supposed to (1) ease any perceived racial tensions, and (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race. So America would be more free than ever to discuss the issues.
Not the case. And that is why having a white Republican president is best for the country.
So because Obama didn’t magically wipe out all racism, and North Carolina still exists, we need a white Republican in charge?
What in the hell are you smoking, Jackson?
The nutjob continues to prattle on about how blacks have never been called racist for being critical of a white President, accuses Democratic Presidents of racism (of course), and–the coup d’état, claims Ronald Reagan “ushered in a veritable Renaissance for blacks,” citing an article written by Michael Reagan, son of Ronnie…who certainly would never misrepresent his father’s legacy!
Joe, of course, uses the fact that a black man wrote an article that happens to, in a twisted way, justify his bigoted and horrible world views, to claim that it’s not just right to want a white Republican man in office–it’s the American way!
Well, Joe and his ilk’s sick version of America anyway
