It's kind of nightmarish that it seems totally normal now for someone to oppose something or someone that's political by condemning it as evil in religious terms.

Okay, anonymous commenter, ordinarily I'd let it go, but this really is rather egregiously bad:
"Obama IS a "conservative black"
In the 1980s or 1990s, he would be. But this is 2012, year of the Michelle Bachmann and the Rick Santorum. Conservatism don't mean shit to reactionaries.
"- Like Bush, he is favor government surveillance like (Renewed Patriot Act)"
This is rather annoying, but what choice does he have? It would be political suicide to oppose it. The right keeps pressing for these things, and crying "weakness!" and "terrorist sympathizer!" if you don't play ball. Not to mention the critical part: the American people aren't that far behind them.
"- Like Bush, he condones torture (Did not shut down Guantanamo or other black sites)"
Okay, this is ridiculous. Obama has CONDEMNED torture. He promised to close Guantanimo, and he failed to deliver. What the heck does that have to do with torture? "Condoning torture" and "failing to close down a prison where torture once occurred, but no longer" are two totally different things.
"- Like Bush, he invaded an oil-rich nation (Libya)"
I'm starting to hate having to defend Obama over this stuff, but REALLY? You think that Obama and NATO went to war with Libya because they have oil?! Need I remind you that we don't have a dog in that game, and that it is primarily Europe(where gas is crazy expensive) that uses a fraction of Libyan oil? And one other thing: was there NO other mitigating factors at work there? Like, say, a civil war, perhaps? Besides, criticizing Obama for being a warmonger makes no sense. He ended the Iraq war, is ending the Afghanistan war, and unlike Republicans, he doesn't want to launch a Jihad against Iran.
"- Like Bush, he bails out corrupt corporations using taxpayer money with no oversight"
You can disapprove of Obama's new oversight organizations, but lying about their very existence? No. And are you disapproving of the GM bailout that saved the American auto industry? Congratulations, you agree with Mitt Romney.
"Obama goes even further than Bush by using the Espionage Act to crackdown on whistleblowers who dare to expose corruption. (He did this 6 times so far)"
To be fair, the White House is leaking like a sieve. And you think Republicans would be any better at this? You'd have to change the public's "middle" FAR to the left before you can expect this kind of shit to be unacceptable again.
And finally, here's a short list of why Obama ISN'T the second coming of Bush:
• Healthcare- yes, he used the old Republican idea, but he would have gotten nowhere with the Public Option, and now millions more people are saving money and are insured.
• Foreign Policy- Unlike Bush, I don't cringe when people look at what our President does or says.
• Economy- Bush tanked it, Obama improved it. Now Republicans are blocking the American Jobs Act, and things are slowing down, but it's not worse than when he started.
• Human Rights- Obama approves of Gay Marriage and Women's Reproductive Rights. He also signed the Fair Pay Act.
You see similarities to Bush? I don't.

The blacks who follow Obama do NOT know Jesus. They are under the curse of Canaan. They do not respect authority and refuse to believe in God’s word.
In other words, "Dem boys are all uppity and don't know their place!"
9/15/2012 10:17:21 AM
Just another way of saying "I hate you if you don't follow my political beliefs".
9/15/2012 11:46:39 AM
Cursing the evil ones? You mean like all the tornados that have been hitting the Bible Belt this year?
9/15/2012 1:18:33 PM
Nice to see the religious showing their true colors once more.
Good is always repulsive to the ultimate evil that is religion, because it cannot comprehend good.

"God bless the descent people of this country"
God bless people who are going down.

Fundies Make Me Sick
The fact that you believe that means that you're a terrible human being and have no mind of your own.
9/15/2012 3:36:26 PM
Followers of Jesus are not allowed pray for his to curse others. This is blasphemy - or didn't you know? How could you be so ignorant! Who is your neighbour; turn the other cheek, etc.
How do you know anything about the personal and private lives of those you choose to call Obama followers? Have you been peeping athgough keyholes again? Naw. You are pullingit out of your arse.

The Crimson Ghost
Oh Jodie. Your ignorance & racism is showing.
And btw-I don't particularly respect authority-esoecially of the religious flavor & I CERTAINLY don't believe in god's word. I am as white as you can possibly get; a quintessential WASP.
9/15/2012 4:47:37 PM
... they will not be in Heaven with us.
Damn! And I bet they've been looking forward to sharing heaven with you.
9/15/2012 6:05:12 PM
"They do not respect authority and refuse to believe in God’s word."
Doesn't your bible expressly state that all leaders are appointed by god?
Why are you disrespecting the authority of the man your god placed in power, and refusing to believe in your god's word?
You are SO going to hell.
9/15/2012 7:02:51 PM
I am thinking that you would not be here Jodie-moonbat, if Ronnie Raygun had not let your parents out of the locked wards so that they might breed.
Now go! ...or I shall mock you a second time, you silly Fundie buh-igot!

What was Mitt Romney's standing with black voters? Oh, yeah, ZERO PERCENT. I have a hard time believing 94% of black people "do NOT know Jesus."
9/15/2012 8:27:09 PM
So...only those blacks who disagree with your politics are under an inherent curse from God?
Does that make the ones who agree with you honorary whites?
9/15/2012 8:33:08 PM
Yes, blacks should definitely take on the religion that was forced upon their ancestors instead of something based on their own culture.
9/15/2012 8:50:30 PM
In the words of my mother: If you're anything but a heterosexual rich white male, and you vote republican...you're voting against your own interests.
And how do you know about heaven? For all you know, heaven could be a haven for liberals and moderates! You know, the people who probably follow the bible more than you do?
9/15/2012 9:09:07 PM
So, to boil it down, you don't care so much about color, but liberals and Christians who don't believe exactly as you believe repulse you. Liberals and those other Christians are not descent people. A**hole.
9/16/2012 7:32:59 AM
It might as well have been:
"Anyone who disagrees with my views will be considered inherently evil, and card-carrying, self-evident sinners."
9/16/2012 8:16:08 AM
"The blacks who follow Obama do NOT know Jesus"
...is that as 'in the Biblical sense'?!
9/16/2012 8:21:39 AM
What is the "curse of Canaan?" The Canaanites were a savage middle-eastern race that practiced infant sacrifice. African peoples are not Canaanites.
9/16/2012 9:04:05 AM
You are a racist sack of shit. I'm sorry you can vote.
9/16/2012 9:33:07 AM
"They are absolutely repulsive to me, but I am grateful to God that they will not be Heaven with us."
Wanting anyone who disagrees with you to be tortured forever. You're just a bastion of Christian love aren't you?

"The blacks who follow Obama do NOT know Jesus. They are under the curse of Canaan. They do not respect authority and refuse to believe in God’s word. They are absolutely repulsive to me, but I am grateful to God that they will not be Heaven with us."
And I'm glad I won't be there with you as well. I'm black, AND I voted for Obama, and plan to do so again. I respect the SECULAR authority of our President, which apparently you don't. The "conservative blacks", as you put it, are Uncle Toms of the HIGHEST order, (as are conservative gays, btw), for voting against their best intrests (ie. non-discrimination laws, and anti-voter suppression)
Oh, and my grandmother is more of a Christian than you'll ever be. Cunt.
