Washington, DC. Aside from weathering a paralyzing snow storm, representatives in our nation's capitol have been battling a whirling shit storm, thanks to statements made by former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani. The remarks, delivered at a fundraising event for dead fish impersonator and Koch brothers' favorite sex toy, Wisconsin's Governor Scott Walker, hinted that President Obama may be just a tad lukewarm in his affection for the country he leads. Said the former mayor:
“I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He
doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way
you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
Okay, that's more than a hint. But Giuliani, who has descended from
"America's Mayor" to America's crazy fucking racist uncle banging on the
attic floor, was not done. Holding forth at Fox News, the convicted
leg-breaker's son doubled and tripled down on his belief that President
Obama basically hates everything America stands for. So there.
What brought this all about, of course, is Obama's ongoing refusal to
call ISIS thugs and other terrorists of Muslim origin "Islamic
terrorists." The President holds that this appellation (preferred by
anti-Islam bigots, Islamophobes and harpies named Pam Geller by a margin
of 10 to 1) gives these criminals legitimacy they do not warrant. It is
for precisely the same reason the president does not refer to
Republicans as "treasonous, reality-denying shitheads." It's more than they deserve.
But as much as we effete liberals would like to deny it, the
increasingly irrelevant former mobster's son does have a point: Barack
Obama was not brought up in a stereotypical Italian crime family and is stunningly, undeniably not white.
President Obama demonstrates this by regularly appearing in public as a
Black man. He showed his sneering disdain for white women everywhere by
marrying one Michelle Robinson and shortly thereafter producing two
chocolate-toned children that will never be mistaken for Italians. He
displays an elitist contempt for NASCAR and is unable to distinguish
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. from Jimmie Johnson, and further, could not give a
fuck. He would instead prefer to watch tall Black, athletic men fly
through the air and slam basket balls than watch white guys drive around
in a circle. He doesn't bowl. His iPod is tellingly bare of country
music and he never starts a speech with, "Like Charlie Daniels says...."
Even worse, he vacations in the communist state of Hawaii instead of
Branson, Missouri. He refuses to man-up and be a Real American by
slaughtering God's creatures for sport and idle amusement while
shit-faced drunk. He doesn't go 4-wheeling, preferring to preserve
Nature as opposed to digging tire tracks into her. And most damningly
obvious of all, he seems to prefer ending and preventing wars than
starting them for no fucking reason.
Rudy Giuliani is right. Barack H. Obama is no George W. Bush. And for that, we can all be grateful.
Next week, Obama hates Israel because he refuses to convert from Islam to Judaism.
