Instead of giving thanks for living in the "greatest country on earth", they seem hell bent on sending me back to mine.
Of course I am quite used to it by now. Having a popular blog called The Field Negro will bring out the ugly in folks who have harder time picking up a book than a jug of moonshine or a crossbow.
I also blame Colin Flaherty, he is the man who has been using my quotes (taken out of context of course) to sell his pathetic book. A book, by the way, which seems to be doing quite well. (The white victim industry is booming these days.) To folks like Flaherty, the only good Negro in America is the passive Negro. The one who capitulates to, and acknowledges, white privilege. If this Negro is supposedly educated, all the better. (I see you Thomas Sowell and Clarence Thomas.)
Anyway wingnuts, please keep the hate mail coming; it motivates me.
And to think I almost quit blogging.
Speaking of winguts, here is some more news you will never hear or see on any of Rupert Murdoch's stations.
"So now, Right-Wing "Christian" extremists are making death threats against President Obama, and on Facebook. The administrator, "Everest," for the Facebook group Christian American Patriots Militia begins his post on November 19th, with:
"We now have the authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him."Well, it's a federal crime, i.e., a felony to make threats against any president.
A large number of people on Facebook have claimed they reported the post and site. Some folks even say they contacted the FBI and Secret Service. Apparently, the authorities are fully aware, watching, and waiting. The penalty for someone making a threat is far less, than if someone attempts to make good on that threat. And the authorities will be right there waiting for them, ready to snap them up." [Source]
This is scary stuff, given that it's been 50 years since another young president was cut down by a sniper's bullet.
Eddie Murphy used to joke about it , but it sure isn't funny anymore.
Still, I know quite a few people who would be happy. I hear from them damn near every day.
