I did not like the majority of the Bush Administration policies that ended up practically destroying this country, but one thing is this, I never stated anything against his wife, Laura Bush nor his girls, Jenna and Barbara. I wish the other side or I won't even go there, I wish the racists of this country would see likewise with Malia and Sasha Obama.
Since, Barack Obama ascended to the presidency the security has been and will continue to be at the all time highest to protect he and his family. It should be. When you have nutjobs over at freerepublic's website spilling and allowing vile comments against not President Obama, but his daughters makes you believe that America is really not that great.
Kids should be off the table, period. Especially kids the ages of 11 and 8. The Obama Girls have done nothing to deserve the nastiness, un-American and un-patriotic comments that have been thrown towards them from the ignorant, crazy and unstable folk that frequent freerepublic.
I have read some of the comments and had to close the browser, it was that bad. But, I do know this, that the Obamas are doing something RIGHT to trigger the hate that is coming from the freerepublic website. I guess the racists are coming out of the closet with a blast since they believe their Americanism, patriotism and whiteness is being challenged from the highest post in this land. Just like the swimming pool incident in Philadelphia, the racists are coming out with no shame.
In the end, it won't work. We saw this show during the campaign in 2008. Everything was thrown at the Obamas and it did not work. The majority in this country denounce and reject bigotry and racism, especially the kind coming from freerepublic and what we saw at the McCain/Palin rallies. Is it sad and discouraging that these nutjobs are out there saying the things that they are against Malia and Sasha Obama? YES, but they are the minority NOT the majority. Remember, that.
David Shuster from MSNBC will cover this story on Monday, during his 3-5 time slot on MSNBC, as this story is starting to get major traction and the so-called "conservatives" are shamefully exposed.
Read it all, here. And from The Vancouver Sun.
Another point of view, Malia's hair.
