New Alpha Unit. This post is about the increase in death threats against the President since Obama came into office. There are five times more death threats against Obama than against Bush. I found this intriguing. The normal response is to say that this is due to racism. However, that may not be the case. I thought about this for a few days, and I finally decided that it must be due to White racism, and can’t possibly be due to anything else.
I suppose one could argue that the threats are due to his liberalism, but that seems a little dubious. Is Obama really all that more liberal than Bill Clinton? Not really, or not by much anyway. Hell, Hillary is his Secretary of State. Anyway, Richard Nixon was about as liberal as either Obama or Clinton.
That leaves race. It’s got to be race. White racism against a Black President.
AU told me that when Black Hank Aaron was moving in on White Babe Ruth’s home run record, he started getting lots of death threats, all from Whites apparently. As he got closer and closer to breaking the Babe’s record, the death threats went up and up.
I always thought Blacks were paranoid and nutty about this “the Whites won’t let us succeed”, and “every time a Black man succeeds, the Whites try to tear him down” stuff, but it looks like there is a grain of truth there.
People are scared. Really scared.
They’re so scared they want to kill. They want to kill the one who’s making them feel this way. This is a dangerous situation.
Barack Obama, please stop scaring the hell out of these people.
You just don’t know what these people are going through. If you did, you’d have no problem dealing with the reported 400% increase in death threats against the POTUS since George W. Bush left office. It would be clear why there was a mad rush to join certain support groups since you got elected.
Some of these people are in such a bad way that they’ve not only called for you to be killed, they’ve called for your wife to be killed. They’ve called for your kids to be killed. One called for your wife and kids to be killed in front of you.
Damn. That’s messed up.
I don’t know what you’d call this kind of mindset. “I don’t like what’s going on in this country, so somebody needs to die! And his little kids, too!”
You must act, Mr. President. What you need to do is put on a white suit. Be sure to have on a white shirt underneath. Find a red bow tie and put it on. Next, get one of those puffy chef’s hats, and put that on.
Find a nice, steaming bowl of farina and hold it up. Smile really big.
You’ll look just like the Cream of Wheat man.
They’ll recognize you, then. They’ll know for sure that you’re not gonna hurt ’em. And that you’re only here to serve.
