A Look At A Racist Friend Of Mine Looking At Michelle Obama’s Convention Speech

While many people like to deny it racism is a deeply ingrained problem in our country today. I have a friend on FaceBook (really he a professional acquaintance who I have never actually met in person) who I think is both infected with racism and surrounds himself with close friends who support and or encourage that racism. Looking at the conversation they had as Michelle Obama gave her tremendous speech at the 2016 Democratic Convention I think reasonable people can recognize the problem we all face. While the conversation was “public” I am still choosing to hide their identities.

J.C. My FB Friend — Of course the POS No Class Racist Michelle Obama brings up how she wakes up every morning in a house built by Slaves ….

D.S.A. (female) — She should feel right at home since it’s the democrats that kept them that way!!

J.C.  — Everything’s about Race….Black this black that and then that Fuckin Slave Bullshit…She has it so bad .

J.C.  — Now this Racist Skank says America’s Great ….meanwhile she’s always HATED this Country and White People!!

L.G.I. (female Italian surname) F them all!! They all hate white people!! Such double standard bullshit!!!

L.G.I. —  #whitelivesmatter 👍👍👍 😃😃😃😃

J.C.  — You Racist!!!!…..you’re not allowed to say that ….lol

L.G.I. —   no shit!!! I’ve been flagged on FB a few times!!!! 😂😂😂😈

M.Y. (male Italian surname) — fuck her, she’s the racist

J.C.  — She’s always been ….her and her Racist Savage Fuck Husband ….

J.L. (male Italian surname) — And then they wonder why the country is so divided right now

J.C.  —  A Black First Lady/First Man talking about slavery at the DNC for no other reason than her own racist agenda!!

J.B  (male Italian surname) — A few more months and there be gone,negative energy not needed we need trump.

J.L. — I just ordered Trump signs and stickers

J.B.L. (female Italian surname) — Go Joe Lombardi! Me too.

J.C.  — Watch out for these Savage Fucks ripping your signs off your lawn

J.L. — Oh no they won’t, not here

J.C.  — Atta boy Joe….bang bang!!

M.A.M. (female Scottish surname)  — She’s an asshole like her husband

J.C.  — Michelle …don’t insult assholes…lol

J.L —  That’s racist against assholes

While there were many great moments in Michelle Obamas speech with respect to this kind of hate speech I found one passage particularly apropos:

“…See, because at that moment I realized that our time in the White House would form the foundation for who they would become and how well we managed this experience could truly make or break them. That is what Barack and I think about every day as we try to guide and protect our girls through the challenges of this unusual life in the spotlight, how we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith.

How we insist that the hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country.

How we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.

For the most part conservatives, liberals and celebrities and the pundits all praised Michelle Obama’s speech but there was still a lot of hate inspired reaction out there.

Oh, For Fuck’s Sake: A Gentle Talk With My Republican, Democrat, And Undecided Friends

It’s hard to look at the headlines when you’re facepalming. But I see my Facebook feed alight with various opinions on the election, all of which are wrong – so rather than screaming OH, FOR FUCK’S SAKE at all of you individually, let me pull you into the corner and have a brief but compassionate talk: To My Moderate Conservative Friends: This is a tough time for you.

John Oliver has the takedown of Donald Trump’s Republican convention you’ve waited for

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver on Sunday concisely summarized the Republican National Convention in one sentence: “He just brought a feeling to a fucking fact fight.” Throughout the convention, Republican speakers – including Donald Trump – argued that the crime rate was skyrocketing, unauthorized immigration is going up, the economy is getting worse, and terrorism is killing a record number of Americans.

10 Great Reasons to Avoid Organic – We Love GMOs and Vaccines

I don’t know if I would say “Reasons to Avoid” but certainly, the reason so many people have for going organic are bogus and scientifically untrue.

10 Great Reasons to Avoid Organic

Join the We Love GMOs and Vaccines mailing list! 1) Organic is a production term- it does not address the quality, safety or nutritional value of a product. It is a myth that organic farming does not use pesticides or chemicals. You can find the “approved” list of organic pesticides here.

Yes, you do have an obligation to vote for the lesser of two evils. Here’s why. | Washington Post

Yes, you do have an obligation to vote for the lesser of two evils. Here’s why.

Do we have a duty to vote for the lesser evil when election choices are equally unappealing? Alternatively, do we act rightly if we vote for a third-party candidate whom we prefer on principled grounds even if he or she stands no chance of winning? Many people are seriously pondering these questions.

The Only Living Trump Supporter In Silicon Valley

Listening to Peter Thiel speak tonight at the Republican convention I was reminded of an article I read the other month…

The only living Trump supporter in Silicon Valley | John Naughton

The most interesting discovery of the week was not that IBM, Citigroup and Microsoft were unwittingly running ads on (and therefore providing funds to) an Indonesian jihadi website – though they were – but that Peter Thiel is supporting Donald Trump in his bid to become the next president of the United States.

and then this one this evening…

Donald Trump, Peter Thiel and the death of democracy

Tonight, tech billionaire Peter Thiel will speak at the Republican national convention and make his case for why Donald Trump should be the next president of the United States. Most of the media is baffled by Thiel’s endorsement. And it’s true that at first glance the two men aren’t an obvious match.
