It's no secret that we here at P.E. keep an eye on the rabid radical right in order to gauge how far down into the sewer of paranoia, mendacity, and hatred they are willing to sink in order to justify their bigotry. We know they're willing to post scurrilous fake news stories that attack the POTUS in order to justify their bottomless hatred of our American president.
One only has to look at the lying bigot they're supporting for the presidency in order to understand their toxic, odious mentality.
Here's an example:
It isn't surprising that Trump is their hero and their candidate. He feeds into their darkest paranoia and ignorant claims that President Obama is not one of us, but "The Other," -- a traitor. (Trump was a champion of the birther idiots -- himself being the biggest birther idiot of all time.)
If you've hesitated to believe that our fellow Americans can be this crazy, this willing to soak themselves in malignant lies and calumny, the above poster will disabuse you of that doubt.
These people aren't merely voicing disagreements with President Obama's policies, they, like all deeply disturbed fanatics, take it to another level and accuse him of being a traitor to the United States of America -- with no evidence whatsoever to back it up, because there is none.
A poster is all they have -- that and their sweaty paranoid fears.
The above poster that they gleefully pass among themselves gets it all wrong of course. Right now, President Obama's approval numbers are in the 50s -- higher than were George W. Bush's at this point in his presidency, and on a par with President Reagan's at this point in his presidency.
MR. OBAMA IS AS POPULAR NOW AS WAS THEIR HERO, RONALD REAGAN, AT THIS POINT IN HIS PRESIDENCY.
Let that sink in as your read their sad, hateful little blogs and news sites.
The American people, through their approval and support, believe that PRESIDENT OBAMA IS MOST DEFINITELY ON OUR SIDE.
A majority of Americans approve of our American president. They do not share what the above poster represents.
The above poster's slanderous smear represents everything that is evil, false, and traitorous in our beloved country. To hell with the rabid right wing creeps who pass it around.
