"Any black who votes for Bush should be strung up and shot"

Shay at Crispus has been dealing with friends -- not unlike I have -- who are so vehemently against President Bush that their hatred is tangible.

"Voting for Bush is Voting Against Your People"
This is what the husband of one of my best friends told me yesterday, and my friend concurred. The husband also said, "Any black who votes for Bush should be strung up and shot" (I kid you not). Ouch!

This comment was in response to portions of this Washington Times article that I was reading to them. They're hotly opposed to the war in Iraq, and absolutely hate President Bush. In fact, awhile back my friend's husband said that he hoped the economy doesn't improve just so it would help Bush lose.

No one can tell me why their hatred for the man is so strong. Many people immediately point at the way, but when you point out that their level of hatred was just as strong prior to the war, their arguement falls apart.

Many are lost in the strawman arguement over the Electoral College, and even when faced with the reality of how the Electoral College works in general, along with how it played into the 2000 election, their emotion gets beyond any semblance of logic they may have.

It's pretty sad that so many allow their emotions to rule over and above any sense of logic they may have.

"Strung up"? I take it somebody's irony detector wasn't working when he said that.

Yeah, his irony detector wasn't working! I was taken aback by the lynching imagery, given history. I was also taken aback by the shooting imagery, but they support gun control so I don't have to worry!

These are the same people that gush about their compassion and peaceable natures. Okay then, Hitler loved his dog.

They make it sound as thought Bush has done something specific and detrimental to the black community. To say that any person voting for Bush should be shot is to say you hate Bush; to say that any black person...etc. is to say that Bush specifically and deliberately harms blacks.

Oh well, I know this arguments are unwinable anyway.

Strung up and shot? Didn't that used to be called a lynching and isn't that what "nigger" hating Klu Klux Klanners used to do because of their irrational hatred of people whose skin was darker than their own. . . and wasn't it devout Christians of all denominations and Jews who were in the forefront of movements to end slavery and then in the forefront of the civil rights movement? People like President Bush who takes his religion seriously. Yes, I believe they were.

In fact, more Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats (you could look it up). Al Gore's sainted father a senator from Tennessee voted against the Civil Rights Act, as did many other southern Democrats.

Most Blacks, Colored-People, Negroes, African-Americans or whatever name they wish to be called have no historical perspective. Keeping them in the permanent custodial custody of ignorance, welfare and victimhood means big bucks to their so-called leaders and the teachers' unions whose vise-like grip on the throats of liberal politicians are full accomplices in the dumbing down of public school education.

Bill Cosby, a traditional liberal Democrat, has finally spoken to the obvious. If his impeccable credentials and his long history of public service count for anything, perhaps it will give other well known Blacks the courage to speak out in agreement and break the back of the self-defeating Oreo cookie brand of racism practiced from sea to shinning sea.

"In fact, awhile back my friend's husband said that he hoped the economy doesn't improve just so it would help Bush lose."

I don't think that that's an uncommon mindset among Bush haters. They don't even care if their idignant emotional rantings (Al gore I'm looking in your direction...) are emboldening terrorists and thus endangering soldiers and civilians as long as they think that they can hurt Bush.

You know you've got some serious mind control going on when someone convinces you that tax cuts (keeping more of your hard-earned money, even if it's "only" $300) are bad and tax increases ($300 X 10) are good.
