Where’s that cartoon of the guy flogging the dead horse?!
I’ve said from the beginning that
1. I don’t “hate” him, and
2. It’s his ideology, not his skin color that has me up in arms.
But I have to confess that that has changed. I do now freely admit that I hate him. I despise his haughty arrogance, and his condescending manor. I hate his groveling before our enemies and slighting our friends. I hate his absence of understanding or common sense when it comes to our national security and our troops. I hate his Marxist tendencies when it comes to his plans to dismantle our economy. I see red when I see his trampling on the traditions that made this country great and promoting notions that is guaranteed to DESTROY OUR NATION.
It is becoming a visceral hatred that doesn’t want to do harm to him, but is ambivalent about seeing harm come to him. Honestly, if a bus hit him tomorrow it would take everything I have to suppress a grin.
The worrisome thing is that I know that I’m not alone. I have overheard more expressions in racial terms than I have in the last thirty years. The post-racial president has set race relations in America back to the sixties (or worse). Surprisingly, where I am seeing it coming from is more from the middle and from the left than from the right.
The left has always been racist and racially exploitative, so there’s not much new there. But I know several people who are squishy moderates that I would never have expected passing along jokes with a racial theme. But there it is.
I expect things to get much, much worse before we ever catch a glimpse of anything better. The driving force - as demonstrated by this article, is that minorities (blacks) have been given a huge expectation by 0b0mba of a massive payoff and they don’t GAS about anything else except getting it. At the moment they are still queuing up for all their free stuff, but that is gonna change. When it fails to materialize - and it WILL fail - then we’ll see a change in the polling.

A hearty +1 to everything in that comment.
I’m afraid the feelings I have for the whole lousy tribe of them is too close to hatred for comfort. As a Christian I know that’s wrong, in other words, a sin. I pray for forgiveness for that ‘way too often these days.
I’m instructed to pray for my enemies, and I try. The best I can do for Bambi and friends is to pray that God makes their way straight when they walk in His way, and frustrate them in their endeavors when they do not.
Good thoughtful post, by the way. Thanks for sharing it.
