So we've returned from a lovely night of warm dessert at my cousin's home. All was good until the Miller beer started flowing over the lips of my step father and my cousin's husband. Oh boy. I had to move myself across the room way down by my uncle. And I did my best to keep him out of their conversation and keep him centered on words with me instead. I succeeded. But I glanced over at my LoverBoy when I kept on hearing about our "Muslim President" and his horrible wife....THE worst First Lady ever....how dare she demand that our children can't eat certain foods. If they want to eat it, they should be able to eat it. Oh dear.
And it continued on and on about the Jews, Israel, Saudi Arabia, debt, deficit and the horrible nation that he's allowed to happen. My ears were on fire. Redder than ever. Absolute hate. Disgust. They hate, hate, hate our president. And not just strong dislike. I mean hate to the core. It was some of the worst conversation, phrases and words I've heard in person. It all sounded so mainstream. So simple, cheap, easy words. Common phrases and sentences filled with zero depth, no thought. No educational background, church-driven, fear based. All fear based.
I still think it would be much easier if people would simply admit that they are bigots and hate black people. That would cut right through all of the false rhetoric and straight to what they are actually meaning to say. Boy Boy Needs to Go Home Now.
