Another day, another story of right-wing rage against the African American guy in the White House, how it constitutes a public menace to all of us, and how we had better not sit out this election and turn the country over to these lunatics. Thanks to the Arlington County (Virginia) Democratic Committee's superb Deputy Chair Maureen Markham for sharing (bolding added by me for emphasis).



Dear Friends,

I wanted to write and tell you about an experience that I had in Maryland on Highway Route 40 today. I had been to visit my parents in Delaware and was driving home to Arlington. Often I avoid the heavy traffic on I-95 and take Route 40 to Baltimore. I was stopped at a traffic light, about to turn right to jog over to join 95 and take the tunnel under the harbor, when a dark sedan pulled up alongside me, beeped, and the driver motioned for me to roll down my window. It was not an isolated place and in broad daylight with lots of other cars around. I thought the person wanted to ask directions or something so I put down the window. The driver was a normal-looking young white man, maybe 35 or so, with short sandy hair. He leaned forward from his open window and said to me ďDid you vote for Obama?Ē

I should say here that I have two bumper stickers on my back fender. One says ďPeace is Patriotic.Ē The other is a round circle that says Obama-Biden. I answered "I sure did." Then he got loud and excited in a sneering sort of way and asked something like, "Are you happy now with the way things are going?" I thought ďuh-ohĒ but I answered again, "I sure am." Then the guy went off his rocker and started verbally accosting me saying something like, "I hope to God someone shoots you dead, you liberal Pig..." Sophie started barking and I said "Oh thatís nice" as I rolled up my window. He lurched forward, cutting me off in the lane and beeping his horn and I made my right turn, glad to get away from him.

....................


Please, if you are not paying attention to your local elections this fall, now is the time to get involved. If you voted for Obama and are now disappointed because he is not Left enough, think what it will be like when they try to undo what he has managed to accomplish. If you voted for Obama and are now disappointed because he is too Liberal for you, do you really want to go back to the Wild West days when people wore guns in holsters on their hip? Do you approve of people trying to threaten and intimidate others just because they voted for a Black man for President? Did you all really think that we could turn around 8 years of war and decline in just 18 months? Do you really want to hand over the reins of government to the people who drove us into the ditch and who have stubbornly refused to be part of any solution to pull us out? These people would rather see Obama fail, and the middle class suffer, and the country pulled apart by strife and conflict than do anything to make things better. This is not putting country first. Donít let this kind of cynicism succeed!

Please folks, donít sit this one out. If we fail to participate, and the other side wins for lack of enthusiasm on our part, then truly Fear will triumph over Hope. We just canít let that happen! Donít let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to pass this on.

Still a Hope Monger,
Maureen

The sad thing is, this kind of rhetoric is how they talk and act, not conservatives. These people are so dishonest that it borders on the absurd.

It's almost sad as to what they have to stoop to in order to get support.

It's one thing to have a legitimate issue and a legitimate disagreement. It's another when you have to make shit up.
