Written by Larry Gellman/Huffington PostThe Right Wing purveyors of hatred, fear, and anger have adopted a new strategy. Unfortunately, it seems to be working as well as their old one.
Until now, they have focused on spreading lies and distortions about President Obama. He is a socialist and a Nazi (an interesting combination) wants to kill granny. He wants to ruin our wonderful health care system — which is working well for virtually no one under the age of 65. He wants to run up trillions in debt — but Bush already did that. He wants to take away all our freedoms and liberties–but Bush already did that. He wants to take away our guns–but he let patriots bring assault weapons to a meeting where he spoke.
You know the drill and the litany. I thought it had gone about as far as it could go. But, as we’ve all learned, never underestimate the power of racism and hate.
Today we broke new ground. The haters on the Right are now basically saying that the election never happened. Obama didn’t really win and he’s not really our president. If he was really president, there would be nothing new or controversial about his desire to do a video address to school children regarding how important it is to study hard and stay in school.
