"A Painting In The White House Depicting Obama's Racism
Is this what Obama preaches about being non-bias? Or is this what he learned by sitting in Rev. Wright's church for 20 years? As The Revvvverend Jessie Jackson says keep the racial hate alive! Or something like that. Is this what America is all about? Or is it all about having a racist President in the White House? What’s next ? Having a painting of Mexican illegal’s jumping the border on his wall? Or a painting of Dick Cheney shooting his friend at a Hunting Accident. I have a great idea, why not have a really big painting of the DRUNKEN Ted Kennedy swimming away for the drowning Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick. I’d go for that one. I’d even vote for having a painting of Obama Blaming Bush for all his woes. Or maybe a painting of Moochie Obama walking down the streets of Spain in her African costume and all the little kiddies following her just like the Pied Piper. Or a painting of Moochie on Vacation captioned "Let them eat cake""
I'm not going to link to the blog that posted this pile of strident, incoherent, and illiterate pigshit. Why give the blogger more traffic. My regular readers will guess correctly who it is.
That he or anyone else of his ilk can interpret hanging an American iconic work of art in the White House as a "racist" action on the part of President Obama illustrates how devoid of basic human decency many on the fringe have become since the election of our first bi-racial president. Only this blogger's morally depraved readers will agree with his ignorant, bilious rant.
Honorable people will see it for the tragic example of mindless bigotry that it is.

The people visiting the above quoted blog, as well as the blog host, didn't bother to do one ounce of research on why the Rockwell painting is hanging in the White House. The woman who is the subject of the painting, Ruby Bridges, suggested that the White House allow it to be featured there. The commenters at that blog swallowed the blogger's lies whole--just like, I might add, those who blindly follow and believe the misinformed leaders on the right: Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, etc.
"On Wednesday, Ruby Bridges — the now 56-year-old woman depicted in the Norman Rockwell painting "The Problem We All Live With — described to Politico's Josh Gerstein her efforts to convince President Obama to hang the painting in the White House."
If I were to point this fact out to those bigots, they'd accuse me of "blaming Bush."
