You’re not going to believe this…then again, maybe you will. There are people selling bumper stickers with the words “Don’t Re-Nig in 2012” (among other nasty slogans and pictures). If you were offended by the Tea Party rally signs in 2008 showing then candidate Obama as an African tribesman with a bone through his nose, then you are sure to find any of these bumper stickers way over the line.
We always knew there would be this kind of sentiment among the underbelly of American society. But the fact that they are so blatant about it, just blows my mind. I’m sure these people will claim it is their First Amendment right to say what they want and I don’t dispute that at all. What I dispute is the absolutely disgusting nature of what you are saying. My response to these jerks is “You sir or madam are not worthy enough to clean the floor that President Obama walks on.”
Personally, I cannot imagine slapping a sticker like that on my car and driving around with it. Perhaps we should look at it as a blessing because before they kept their ugly thoughts pretty much inside their dark, evil hearts. Now that they are desperate and ready to share their internal racist slime with the world it should be that much easier to combat–I hope.
This kind of evil gets passed on from one generation to the next and until decent people of all races stand up to it, it will continue. First they came for the African Americans, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t African American. Then they came for the Hispanics, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Hispanic. Then they came for the Atheists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t an Atheist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
