Hey progressives, let me explain why you should detest Obama

A multitude of left wingers read this blog. They generally make their presence known by sending me volumes of lovely emails and Facebook messages. Here’s an example of one I received after my last post about Obama. This particularly articulate liberal showed great restraint as he voiced his disagreements in a coherent and scholarly fashion:

“Matt, your a racist piece of sh*t. I hope you die you assh*le. Stop repeating the same f*cking sh*t you hear on FAUX NEWS. You don’t know sh*t. Your just another Hannity Koch Brothers KKK piece of white trash. Obama doesn’t care what you think about him anyways lol. Hes trying to fix the problems while all you do is bitch about evrything. I can’t believe anyone reads your retarded rants.”

That’s pretty much par for the progressive hate mail course. He hit all the requisite points: I’m a racist… I deserve to die… I get all of my information from Fox News… I’m stupid… [Random Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh reference]… So on and so forth. But despite all of these biting and psychologically penetrating criticisms lobbed in my direction, I do not get angry. Honestly, I feel a profound pity for these poor souls. They’ve betrayed their ideals and sold their integrity to a politician, and for what? They blindly storm the gates anytime anyone defies their leader, yet they battle without the armor of truth.  It’s a suicide mission. They suffer from some sort of political Stockholm Syndrome. They remind me of the masses in North Korea who literally worship and deify the pudgy effeminate dictator who starves, enslaves and persecutes them.

Obama has been an unmitigated disaster in all respects, yet these willing patsies feel compelled to unconvincingly rationalize every folly and felony committed by him. In the end, they get nothing for their ignoble efforts. They try with all of their might to sell a steaming bag of bull crap to anyone who will listen, but whether they succeed or fail they are always all the lesser for it. They’re like used car salesmen forced to wear tacky suits and hock clunkers to soccer moms for zero commission. How could I be personally offended at someone for degrading themselves in such a manner?

No, I want to help them. I want to reach out to them. I want to tell them it will be OK. Liberals, are you still there? Listen, it will be OK. Free yourselves. You are sentient men and women with free will. You don’t have to stand up for Obama. It doesn’t matter what the media says, or what your crusty old professor told you, or what you see in pop culture. Those people are all manipulating you. Untether yourselves from their slimy grasp. Break free from the chains of complacency and collectivism which bind you. Obama is a tyrant. You don’t have to pretend otherwise. Call him what he is and feel no remorse.

I’m not telling you to adopt my ideology, I’m telling you to adopt your own ideology. At least become what you said you were during the Bush years. Actually stand for the passions you feigned. The truth is, liberals — at least liberals circa 2000-2008 — should despise Obama just as much as any conservative at any rodeo or gun show despises Obama. Maybe even more so.

The One Percent

Progressives, you hate corporations and you resent the corrupting influence of money in politics? Well, guess which millionaire president cuddles with Goldman Sachs executives every night while he falls asleep on a bed of money? The guy has raked in millions of dollars of campaign contributions from corporations and big banks. And he gives back — oh does he give back. Obama has handed trillions of dollars in bailout cash to bankers on Wall Street and fat cats in swanky corporate offices. Obama loves the rich. He’s done more to steal money from the middle class and give it to the one percent than any president before him. Even the programs designed for “the poor” are actually just schemes to line the pockets of the wealthy. Why do you think PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Walmart, Kraft Foods and biotech behemoths like Monsanto all lobby hard for food stamp legislation? Because they make billions off of these “compassionate” welfare schemes. Did you know that JP Morgan Chase rakes in the dough every time someone in one of 23 states signs up for an EBT card? You probably didn’t. But now you do. Until, that is, you force yourself to forget it, and this is precisely the problem.

Anti War

Liberals, you were “anti-war.” What happened to that? Pick those signs back up. Take to the streets again. News flash: Obama has troops occupying more countries than Bush ever did. He’s got military on the ground in 24 African nations, he’s deployed forces to Yemen and Syria and Libya and Egypt. Three times as many troops have died in Afghanistan under Obama than under Bush. I thought you wanted to bring these men and women home? Obama’s got them spread all over the globe. Come on, guys and gals. Put a flower in your hair and sing a folk song about the evils of war. It’d be just as relevant now as it was during the Bush years. He’s got a proxy war in Somalia and a drone war in Pakistan that has killed thousands of civilians. He opened a military base in Chile and he still maintains a “presence” in Iraq. Obama hearts war. Plain and simple.

Civil Liberties

Liberals, you’re all about civil liberties? Isn’t that what you claim, or claimed? Obama has been Dick Cheney on steroids when it comes to civil liberties and privacy. He signed the NDAA into law. He assassinated American citizens. He oversaw a massive expansion of the surveillance state, including monitoring the phone records of every American. He extended the Patriot Act. He mandated the Insider Threat Program that requires government employees to profile their coworkers. His Justice Department has spied on journalists, and all of his agencies have been absolutely brutal on whistle blowers. Obama never met a civil liberty he supports and wishes to protect.

The War on Drugs

Liberals, I thought you hate the War on Drugs? Good Lord, Obama has spent 300 million dollars trying to keep medical marijuana away from cancer patients. Sure, the DOJ announced a relaxation on mandatory minimums for some drug offenders, but does that negate the billions Obama’s spent fighting this “war” you once opposed? This president is a neo-con when it comes to drugs.

Evil Guns

What about guns? Don’t you hate guns? Fine, your man is doing what he can to take them out of the hands of law abiding Americans. But doesn’t your distaste for violence and “gun culture” extend beyond the borders? This president has shipped automatic weapons (you know, the scary kind) to criminals and murderers all over the globe. He sent them to the drug cartels in Mexico. He sent guns and grenades to militants in Egypt and Syria and Libya. He sent weaponry to Somalia. Obama is a HUGE fan of guns, just not when they’re in the hands of American citizens.

Race

Obama doesn’t even pass liberal muster on racial issues. He was supposed to help lift minorities up and bring them to new heights in American society, instead they’ve suffered mightily during his tenure. Black unemployment has skyrocketed, the median income of black families has dropped, and the wealth disparity between blacks and white has doubled under Obama. Maybe it’s the white half of him that’s causing all of that. I don’t know.

You guys should be more angry at him than I am. He’s simply been everything I knew he’d be, you all are the ones he used and betrayed. I knew he’d be a nightmare, but you folks thought he’d be your dream come true. Now, was this your dream? THIS? Really? Look around you. Look through the haze of your partisan passions and see reality for what it is.

Ok, you all have always been pretty enthusiastic about abortion and Obama certainly carries your mantle in that respect, I’ll give him that much. He’s your man when it comes to funding and supporting the murder of babies, but beyond infanticide he’s been precisely the opposite of everything you once claimed to be. It turns out that tyrants and narcissistic power mongers are generally interested only in enriching and elevating themselves. You are the footstool he used to get on top, but now you’re just as screwed as the rest of us.

Liberals, you are not slaves. You are independent human beings. I’m not asking you to come to church with me and become a radical right wing fundamentalist Christian like yours truly (although you’re more than welcome to do so), I’m just asking you to have the guts to be what you said you were. And that means you’ll have to oppose Obama, because he’s not on your side. He’s not on anyone’s side.

    There is not, nor ever has been any evidence of that.

    They are vassals and serfs born 800 years too late.

      I feel sorry for Libs,for they are too stupid to realize the kind of rule Ozombie wants. He wants a totally government (governdebt, my word) society who will cow down and be the good little sheeple the Elite want. They claim Republicans to be haters of the middle class, but anyone with common sense and a love for America knows different.

  2. Sue Knight says:

    Nice find. That loser-lib you quote brings up the Koch brothers. What a moron. Someone should tell him and the rest of the loser-libs that the Koch Brothers helped to fund the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) and served on its Executive Council

    http://americablog.com/2010/08/koch-industries-gave-funding-to-the-dlc-and-served-on-its-executive-council.html

    The O-bots aren’t exactly brimming with intelligence. Sad, really.

    • Wow, hate much? Those loser libs beat you, didn’t they? Who did you vote for Sue Knight? When was the last time you volunteered for a campaign? Ever do any community/charity work? Sue Knight, let me guess, you worship Reagan as a true conservative God? All our problems are from ‘liberals’?
      This is why my party is dying a horrible death, people, enlightened people, like Sue Knight.
      Change is best started at the local level, democracy is an ideal. If you people are self described patriots then act like it, if you want freedom, you have to be willing to grant same. Sue Knight, inform yourself, because right now you are fueled by heat speech and divisive rhetoric. BtW, more white, conservative Republicans rely on entitlements than black Democrats, and I won’t even go into Corporate welfare and Superpacs that support the likes of Palin. Look it up, maybe you are hating the wrong people..lol

      • christinewjc says:

        Speaking of “being informed” and “looking up stats on entitlements,” Mark, perhaps you might need to do more research.

        Voter fraud by Democrats was rampant in the 2012 election (probably the 2008 one, too). Check out the stats for yourself: http://www.thenattyconservative.com/i-d-in-order-to-vote-how-widespread-is-voter-fraud-2012-facts-figures/

        Obvious evidence of a stolen election does not constitute a loss. It is called cheating!

        Oh…one more thing. All of the states and counties that had voter ID laws went to Romney. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

      • mytorpor says:

        39% of every welfare dollar goes to black American, while 38% of every welfare dollar goes to white America. Blacks make up about 13% of our population. Whites make up about 70% of our population. So while blacks and whites take about the same percentage of the welfare dollar, as a percentage of population, blacks far outnumber whites in taking welfare dollars. 50% of every child born today is born to a black mother and 73% of those mothers are unwed and have a very high chance of ending up on welfare! 97% of blacks voted for Obama, so they are liberals. Obama has DOUBLED the financial disparity between white and black Americans in less than five years and vastly disproportionately put more blacks on welfare, unemployment and disability rolls. The only Conservative welfare recipients are the ones looking to get off via a well paying job. Liberal welfare recipients are lifelong and generational.
        Since liberals continue to vote against their own self interest, I would have to agree with Sue Knight….most are not too bright. Take yourself for example….you accuse Sue of hate speech and divisive rhetoric, then post even more hateful and divisive rhetoric. At least she was telling the truth!

      In regards to the Koch Brothers’ “democratic philanthropy,” the antique term is “bribery.” They’ve donated to PBS for years…who recently declined to air “Citizen Koch,” a documentary that criticized them…a mere coincidence? http://www.prwatch.org/news/2013/05/12118/pbs-killed-wisconsin-uprising-documentary-citizen-koch-appease-koch-brothers

    While I will admit that I voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 (no one else gave me better options!) and I don’t call myself a liberal or conservative by any stretch. I will criticize Obama when need be (which is happening more often than not nowadays, haha), but to label him the worst President in history is a stretch. I know you didn’t say that in your blog here, but I’ve seen it all over the place, and you did say he’s a disaster. Bush was AWFUL as our President. Obama doesn’t hold a candle to that type of destruction. He’s coming pretty close, though. But shit do these idiot liberals make the rest of us rational people look terrible. *facepalm* I will apologize on behalf of them for being idiots and whatnot.

    • Really? Obama doesn’t hold a candle to Bush?

      What type of destruction?

      What are the criteria that you are using to evaluate “worst President in history”?

      Please be specific in answering the second two questions above.

      And what relevance does “Bush was worse” really have when it comes to whether or not “liberals” (leftists actually) should be opposing Obama NOW? Granting for the sake of continuing the discussion that “Bush was horrible”, Bush is gone. Obama is the one in power now. Fiercely opposing Bush now is meaningless, empty, naught but preening and posturing.

      If what Matt has written above is true (and you haven’t raised any objection to it), then what explains the failure of leftists to oppose Obama? Is it REALLY Bush’s fault that lefties can’t even muster opposition to crony capitalism, an imperial presidency, failed economic policies, incoherent and chaotic foreign policy, and near total disregard for both civil liberties and the constitutional restrictions on the gov’t?

        *

        During the spring of 2001, the George W. Bush administration ignored warning after warning from the intelligence community that a massive terror attack was planned inside the US (a furious CIA analyst even cornered George Tenet at one point and screamed “You are going to get thousands of Americans killed”). Despite the fact that the majority of the attackers were Saudi nationals, we went on to invade Afghanistan, and then Iraq, a country that had NOTHING TO DO WITH the 9/11 attacks. Thousands of American troops have been killed, thousands more will bear scars for the rest of their lives, and the only “winners” in this scenario have been defense contractors.

        George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act into law. You can try to make this about Obama all you want, but the fact of the matter is that every hideous precedent that has been set in regards to spying is a direct product of George W. Bush’s actions.

        And, in a particularly egregious move, frothing right-wingers are trying to re-write history to make Obama responsible for the initial government bailout of the banking industry. The Emergency Economic Stabilization act of 2008 was signed into law on October 3, 2008 by the President. Who was the President on that day?

        For every email Matt gets from a “frothing idiot liberal,” he’ll get twenty from rational people who can prove their points, but of course, he’ll never share THOSE ones. Kind of like how most conservative talk hosts screen their calls carefully and rarely, if ever even HAVE someone on their show with an opposing viewpoint for REAL debate (at least, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Glenn Beck never do).

        I don’t know if George W. Bush is the worst President the US has EVER had, but he’s the worst President we’ve had in MY lifetime-and I was born during the Nixon administration.

        For more about the Bush White House intelligence failures leading to 9/11 and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, read “The Finish” by Mark Bowden (oh, that’s right…Obama got Osama bin Laden…of course, President Obama was accused of taking a ‘victory lap,’ but if Osama had been bagged during Bush ’43, they would have carved Shrub’s face into Mount Rushmore).

        And, for more about the Bush Bank Bailouts, check out “Too Big To Fail” by Andrew Ross Sorkin.

        • “And, in a particularly egregious move, frothing right-wingers are trying to re-write history to make Obama responsible for the initial government bailout of the banking industry.

          George W. Bush, who signed a law for which Senator Barack Hussein Obama voted. So Obama is as responsible as Bush. Not more so…

          As for the rest of your diatribe, you’re simply proving Walsh’s point. Patriot Act? Obama could have had it repealed in 2009-2010, when the party that he leads had control of both houses of Congress. He didn’t, but he seek to have it EXTENDED past the original sunset.

          Instead of opposing Obama vigorously, your response is “Bush did it to”, or it’s close relation, “Bush started it…. “

      • Paul says:

        *George W. Bush, who signed a law for which Senator Barack Hussein Obama voted. So Obama is as responsible as Bush. Not more so…*

        Read “Too Big To Fail.” It’s the size of a phonebook and full of big words, but basically details how the heads of the banks played a giant game of chicken with the federal government and won, and how Hank Paulson, the Secretary of the Treasury (and the ex-CEO of Goldman Sachs, in a characteristic display of the incest between the big banks and Congress) went to George W. Bush and basically told him the world was going to end (kind of like Colin Powell with Iraq) unless taxpayer money was poured into the banks. And, Bush’s financial policies (the 2001 tax cuts and two unfunded wars) are what caused our economy to collapse in the first place.

        Obama spoke in favor of TARP because he felt the money WOULD help people who needed it, and the TARP funds issued after he became President went to home ownership programs and the GM bailout. And, as much as you guys would like to re-write history, Obama is NOT ‘as responsible’ as Bush…not unless he signed the original Act into law, which he did NOT (and boy, would I have loved to have been a fly on the wall the day Hank Paulson tried to explain credit default swaps and toxic assets to our dumbest President).

        *Patriot Act? Obama could have had it repealed in 2009-2010, when the party that he leads had control of both houses of Congress. *

        That’s a common right-wing myth: the truth is that the Democrats had a super-majority for two two-month periods, one of which was during the 2009 summer recess (and Ted Kennedy’s illness kept him from voting for several weeks): http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/did-the-democrats-ever-really-have-60-votes-in-the-senate-and-for-how-long/

        *Instead of opposing Obama vigorously, your response is “Bush did it to”, or it’s close relation, “Bush started it…. “*

        There’s a legal term called a “precedent,” which boils down to, “once it’s been allowed, it’s difficult to stop,” and the fact of the matter is that we wouldn’t be having this discussion today if the Bush White House had listened to pleadings from the intelligence community in the spring of 2001. Outgoing President Bill Clinton even WARNED Bush about increasing terrorist threats because he had dealt with the INITIAL bombing of the World Trade Center (and brought the original bombers to justice).

        Nice try, thanks for playing.

  4. Buck Tiss says:

    I think you are all right. Everything is broken, let’s sit on our ass and argue about it. !!! Great Ideas !

    • Nick says:

      Hahaha! Well said XD. Nothing moves politics along like the comment section of a one-sided internet blog.

      • More of the same but never an original thought, as usual. You people throw around blame and are quick to label others, same old, same old…Obama has done nothing, nothing different than any other President, it’s a corporate world and all policy is designed to please the donors…don’t take my word for it, I only worked on the hill but of course, you people are the experts because you read a hate filled blog or two….99% of the time these politicians spend in office, they fund raise, that should tell you all you need to know…I just wish for once there was a solution offered instead of the same hate filled racist rant we have grown accustomed to. I didn’t vote for Obama and I do not think he has done a great job…He inherited a mess for sure and obstructionist doctrine by the hypocritical conservative left hasn’t helped, God knows these conservatives want no government when it comes to helping the unfortunate and paying their fair share, but all the government they an handle when it comes to telling others how to live…you people want freedom but are just not willing to give same

    I am so glad I found your blog. You are most definitely a kindred spirit. Linked here: http://bobagard.blogspot.com/2013/08/footstools-for-obama.html

  6. Sam says:

    I’m a lib, and I have to agree with this. The last 5 years have NOT been what we wanted. Had plenty of arguments with Dem friends who punched the button for him ’12. Democrat doesn’t equal liberal these days. Of course, the Dems are forced to track the hard right turn of the GOP in the last twenty years, so let’s not lay all this on Obama personally.

  7. Simon Frost says:

    “The truth is, liberals — at least liberals circa 2000-2008 — should despise Obama just as much as any conservative at any rodeo or gun show despises Obama. Maybe even more so.”

    I’m a liberal and I agree completely. Obama is a disgrace on all the points you list above.

  8. Vicky says:

    If You Are A Christian, Why Would you Encourage Anyone To Detest Someone. Jesus Said That By Our Love They Would Know That We Are His Disciples. Your blog Is Full Of Half Truths And Some Outright Lies. All The thingsTHat You So Self Righteously Accused Liberals of In The First Part Of Your Writing You Do With Abandon ThroughOut The Rest Of Your Blog. It Is So Called Christians Like You Who Turn Sinners Away From Christ. You Say, “I’m A Christian And This Is Why You Should Detest Your President.” Shame On You.

  9. Paul says:

    Here’s why I detest Obama: I WANTED a Marxist in the White House. I WANTED “income redistribution.” I’ll give Obama some credit: he IS trying to implement A national healthcare policy (we didn’t have one before-our “national health policy” was “try to get a job with good benefits or if you can’t, pray you don’t get sick”) but what SHOULD have been an easy, reliable single-payer system (like the kind that has worked in Germany since 1883) got watered down into the Affordable Care Act. I know you hicks keep screaming that it’s “SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!” but it was originally conceived by the Heritage Foundation, championed by Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich, and finally implemented as “Romneycare” under failed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a giveaway to the PRIVATE insurance industry.

    Then, there’s Wall Street. When Obama was sworn in, the Dow Jones Index was at about 7,949. Right now it’s at 15,976.

    Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden and may be bravely trying to reform our health insurance industry (of course, the REAL issue is why medical costs are so high to begin with, and THAT won’t be reformed until we get brave enough to investigate single-payer), but that motherfucker is the worst socialist I’ve ever seen.
