The Hypocrisy, It Is Strong with Them... 

I'm not sure which pisses me off more -- the screaming whiny racists who have their panties in a major wad because -- gasp! -- the President of the US is going to talk to their kids on Tuesday, or the MSM who is turning this bullshit non-story into, well, a story.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard the meme. President Obama is going to address school children nationwide on Tuesday, encouraging them to stay in school and get an education. And a bunch of rightwing racists assholes have kicked and screamed and whined, claiming that this is Communist Indoctrination, and "NOT MY KIDS", and the media has deigned to grant legitimacy to this total horseshit.

And... the hypocrisy is thick in the air. Where were these people when Ronald Reagan addressed school kids? (I was a "victim" of this in elementary school.) Where were they when W read "My Pet Goat" to school children... oh, that's right, as 9/11 was happening? Hell, where were they when the Presidential Commission on Physical Fitness forced generations of kids to run around the playground, do pull-ups and feel useless because the four jocks on campus skewed the shit out of the bell-curve? Thank JFK, LBJ and Nixon for that one.

And... weren't these the same people who screamed to the high heavens that any criticism of the president (from 9/11/01 to 1/19/09 inclusive) was treason?

There are two simple solutions to this bullshit. First, the MSM needs to ignore these whining bigots, or at least point out the contradictions above at every turn. Second, the rest of us need to point out that, well, they are in fact racist assholes, astroturfing outrage when none is deserved.

Once upon a time in America, it was considered an honor when the president spoke to you, no matter who the president was. That was the rule from Washington to Bush I. Somehow, the rules changed with Clinton -- but only because the neo-cons did almost as much to damage the office of president in the 90s as Nixon did in his two terms, the only difference being that Nixon did it himself, while Clinton had it done to him.

Well, welcome to 2009, when a bunch of racist assholes conveniently manage to call any criticism of their fascism racism (blind morans) and attack our duly elected president with inacurate lables of facism or commuism. The same people who wanted to hang the people who criticized W are conveniently ignoring their old rules, and are applying their new.

And it's time for the Media and the People to call "Bullshit." The President of the United States wants to talk to the children on Tuesday. Not so very long ago, all good patriots would encourage their children to listen to the president. The only reason old, rich white people are complaining now is... well... President Obama is not old, not rich and not...

Ssssh. White. And this manufactured tempest in a teapot is just the last gasp of racism, of the scared white people whose greatest fear is that people with darker skin than theirs might actually have something to say, and these racist douchebags can all go fuck themselves. If Saint Reagan was good enough to shovel his propaganda down the throats of children of a generation ago, Saint Obama is good enough to tell the current generation to stay in school. It isn't about the person, or shouldn't be, if you're a good American. It's about the Constitution and the Office of the President and Our Country.

If you oppose the president, after all, you are a terrorist. And all of you whining assholes don't want to be labelled as terrorists, right?
