    This hurts my heart.

    • Pick6 May 19th, 2015 at 9:38 pm

      My reaction, too. 🙁

      • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 9:44 pm

        and also pi&&es me off.

        • Pick6 May 19th, 2015 at 9:55 pm

          I get POed sometimes, too, but what we’ve seen since Obama was elected has gone to such depths, it’s a sad thing for our nation. It’s been startling to see respect for the office and person of POTUS deteriorate, and disgusting to see the worst offenders call themselves and those of like mind “patriots”. Makes me very sad to think about what these times portend for future presidents. What a picture we’ve been painting for the world to see, huh? SMH

    • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 9:42 pm

      i didn’t even want to open it.

    • ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 20th, 2015 at 8:21 am

      I’m beyond that point

      It just pi**es me off

  2. labman57 May 19th, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    Of course, you know how FOX News will cover the story:

    “It’s Obama’s own fault. If he wasn’t so damned uppity, then good God-fearing patriotic Americans would not feel compelled to lash out at him that way. Oh, and it has nothing to do with racism …”

    • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 9:43 pm

      how many of them are likely to be repuking fkaticians, creating a new acct spewing their ignorance?

      • Pick6 May 19th, 2015 at 10:00 pm

        That’s a thought, but Twitter abounds with jerks who post stuff like that all the time.

        • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 10:12 pm

          i started a twitter account a couple of years after it came out, and i never used it. i just didn’t have time to follow people nor did i want people following me. its been months since i’ve even opened my facebook. if i get notification from someone about a picture, i MIGHT click on it. otherwise, nah, i’m good.

    I share this planet with many others and enjoy the company and friendship of good people.
    We have better things to do than spew hate towards others.
    I’m hanging with the right crowd.
    Time to smile in the face of bigotry and stupidity.

    • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 9:55 pm

      those cows are beautiful.

      I love this pic 🙂

  4. Foundryman May 19th, 2015 at 10:34 pm

    Man, that is some real hate right there. How can any decent person align themselves with the same political ideology that draws this type of trash?

    • ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 20th, 2015 at 8:29 am

      That’s an easy answer: they are not decent.

  5. Republicans_are_Evil May 19th, 2015 at 11:18 pm

    The GOP is the new face of the KKK.

    • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 11:25 pm

      yes. yes they are.

  6. William May 19th, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    The right, having long since run out of reason, leadership, credibility and a platform consistent with American values, must now turn to something as benign as the color of a mans skin. The anonymity of twitter simply strips away their façade words.

    • whatthe46 May 19th, 2015 at 11:58 pm

      they have proven themselves to be such ugly people. man, wouldn’t it be nice if someone could hack twitter and find out who’s the writer behind the mask? i see a lot of rwnj fkaticians names popping up if they could. talk about rocking their world.

      • arc99 May 20th, 2015 at 1:24 am

        To borrow what conservatives say about Muslims, not all conservatives are ignorant racists.

        However, all ignorant racists are conservatives.

        Has anyone ever seen a pro choice, pro gay rights, pro universal health care, pro affirmative action, pro feminist, anti war, anti Patriot Act racist?

        Me neither

        • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 1:45 am

          i have nothing to add.

        • ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 20th, 2015 at 8:28 am

          Sorry – hate to tell you but my brother and his family are all registered dems or indies but they are ALL massive racist, homophobic bigots..

      • ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 20th, 2015 at 8:27 am

        One of them cost herself thousands of dollars per month in business about 10 days ago when she went off on yet another hateful rant about her massive holy christian hatred for the n word

        I was standing there in her place of business and she was belittling POTUS and the ACA (which saved my life – so her hatred for it tells me she wishes I’d died) and I just put all of my big fat hundreds of dollars worth of purchases down on the flat surface that happened to be in front of me at the time, turned on my heel and walked out.

        I swore to myself I would never darken her business again if she ‘treated’ me to another hatefest that proved she wishes I’d died.

  7. arc99 May 20th, 2015 at 12:58 am

    To all the conservatives who insist that criticism of the President has absolutely nothing to do with race, I would say only that in order to actually believe that, this 62 year old black man would really have to be as stupid as many of you think all black people are.

    Sorry to disappoint you. As far as I am concerned, you have two choices.

    1. Admit that you were wrong and bigotry is a significant factor in the hostility towards this President

    2. Go f*ck yourselves

    Your choice.

    • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 1:44 am

      nicely said, true and i hate you had no choice but to say it. it is what it is.

    • Anomaly 100 May 20th, 2015 at 9:29 am

      I’m going to jump in here and only give them option #2. I’m so sick of their hatred.

    • fahvel May 20th, 2015 at 12:01 pm

      i support #2 all the way.

  8. Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 2:02 am

    U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama II is a good president and at the end of the day, he will go down in history as a great president, a great man.
    He has had to battle foes that are bound and determine to
    convert America into a feudal state of Masters and slaves.
    They want Americans to be ‘At Will’ employees, fired for any reason or no reason at any time. They want an American military to fight for their corporate interest, go to war to get that Oil or any other natural resource they covet.
    There are others that do not have the best interest of America at heart and only want to use America. Obama as stood up to them as well.
    Not easy because they control a lot of the finances, media of the United States.
    Just ask Cynthia McKinney.
    Obama is a president that does have the interest of the
    ordinary American at heart and wants to do what is best.

    • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 3:05 am

      “They want Americans to be ‘At Will’ employees, fired for any reason or no reason at any time.” well, that’s already here in good old TX.

      • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 3:21 am

        In Florida as well.
        They want to erase the Unions so that they can force employees to work under unsafe conditions, send the kids of the working class, middle class to war for the benefit of the the 1%.

        After President Obama is gone, I don’t think that a Democratic President will be that much different from a Republican President, because they want ever more and more natural resources that are not to be found on our shores and are willing to go to war to get them.

        And it will not be the children of the 1% doing the fighting and dying.

        • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 3:39 am

          “After President Obama is gone, I don’t think that a Democratic President will be that much different from a Republican…” i have to disagree. we have hillary who was married to a democratic president, she worked for this democratic president, she’s not much different from Obama, she will keep things going as smoothly as it has been going. she’ll be challenged much like Obama, but i think she’s up for the task.

          • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 3:47 pm

            Hillary is to the left on issues like abortion, same sex marriage, gay rights, etc. But Hillary is a War Hawk and the people that back her want, war and more war. They want to go after Syria, they want to bomb Iran and who knows what else they want. But they want war and they are H illary’s backers. So that is why I believe that Pres. Obama will be the last president holding that line.
            The Republicans are not only governed by the people that back Hillary, they also are backed by people like the Koch brothers and they will go after any nation that has resources that we covet. And if they cannot make a deal with that country for those resources at a price that we dictate, they will attack them.

      • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 3:22 am

        This is a hard video to watch, it can be emotionally cutting. Dahlia is a powerful speaker and she does not mince words.

        Dahlia Wasfi Epic Speech on War –

        NO justice, NO peace.

    • ohpaleasegivemeabreak May 20th, 2015 at 8:32 am

      Yes – history will be very kind to him and history will be very unkind to those who opposed him – like those creepy criminals who met while he was dancing with Michelle at the inaugural balls to decide that they were simply going to do anything and everything they could to destroy his presidency with no regard to whatever the collateral damage to the country would be for the people who pay their salaries.

    Barack Obama For President ’08 Tribute “Wake Up Everybody”

    • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 2:28 am

      i cry everyday for the loss of my first born baby. it’s been 6 yrs in Feb. and just when i though, i had not a tear left to spare, i see this. thank you so much for this Gadea. it was tears of joy. it was tears of a blessing i cannot put into words. you’ve just overcome the ignorance and hatred that we read about and view and hear on a daily basis, about a man that had the nerve, the courage, the audacity, to prove ignorant racist wrong. you’ve over shadowed those post, by posting something beautiful. this takes the spotlight out of that hate. this is what America is. this is what we are about. this is who we should be. my heart hurt so bad when i saw those words of hate. now my heart feels some sense of calm. thank you so much.

      edit to say. don’t you EVER do that to me again.

      • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 2:50 am

        U.S. President Obama is a giant of a man, a great man,
        obstacles have been thrown in his path, disrespect openly shown to our president and yet he has stood tall and soared over it all.

        But it has hurt him, you can sometimes see the pain in his face. I am so glad that he has Michelle there to soothe that away and has the love of his daughters.

        I let President Obama know via emails that he has done a great job and that he is appreciated.

        • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 3:03 am

          thank you.

          • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 3:32 am

            This is one of the reasons, why I say that President Obama is a great man. Because by hook or by crook, they have tried to push him into attacking countries like these. Great pressure has been applied, but yet he has resisted them and it has not been easy.
            They want President Obama to attack Syria, to attack Iran, he has said No each time.

            Dahlia Wasfi Epic Speech on War – NO justice, NO peace.


          • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 3:57 am

            President Obama, well he isn’t their house “” and that pi&&es them off. the fact that we aren’t in a war, the fact that he doesn’t want a war, the fact that he has accomplished so much, despite their determination to set him back, has done a brillant job. war means money for them. take over means power to the 10th degree of anyone who has what “we want” makes me sick.

      • Gadea May 20th, 2015 at 2:52 am

        I am really sorry for the loss of your child.
        That is pain that never goes away and is difficult to explain to another person. But it is always with you.
        It’s a person that was a part of you in a way that nothing else is. It’s very hard.

    • whatthe46 May 20th, 2015 at 2:35 am

      you should tweet this to him. i will for one, share this with everyone i know. p.s. still crying.

    • StoneyCurtisll May 20th, 2015 at 11:26 am

  11. Suzanne McFly May 20th, 2015 at 6:27 am

    I typed a supportive tweet to him saying how happy I am with a President who can rise above the hatred that is constantly thrown at him by those who are less than him. We need to flood his board with supportive tweets and show these hateful rejects that he still has support from the majority of us.

    • Anomaly 100 May 20th, 2015 at 9:28 am

      I sent a supportive tweet, too. Something like, “I see Jade Helm has begun.”

    I can pretty much guarantee they none of them would ever dream of saying that directly to a Black man’s face.

          This is where this site gets pretty hypocritical. If he was call you a name like “racist [pig]”, he would probably get banned. At the very least his post would get deleted.

          • allison1050 May 20th, 2015 at 3:22 pm

            I strongly doubt that.

  15. oldfart May 20th, 2015 at 11:52 am

    Racism is alive and well in this country and still President Obama was re-elected twice.
    Therein lies my hope for this country.

  16. Bunya May 20th, 2015 at 1:49 pm

    I’ll give these guys credit for claiming their bigotry. Many of the racist pigs who dislike the president prefer to cowardly veil their racism by referring to him as a “Kenyan born, commie, socialist, member of the Muslim Brotherhood”.

  17. Jake May 20th, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    Congrats, with 275,000 re tweets you found 2 morons.

    • Julie G May 21st, 2015 at 12:07 am

      Try They have screen shots of more than two. One even posted a joke.What do you call the first black in the White House? Ni**er. Regardless, even one is too many. Morons is too kind. Deplorable, despicable and disgusting, maybe.

    While we’re on the subject ….. “Anyone who uses the term “politically correct” is a BIGOT trying to excuse something he’s said, done or thought that is offensive to thinking people. The term was invented to shield the bigot’s inner embarrassment and salve their sensitivity to being called out. It’s time we turn on those who use “politically correct” with united conviction.”

    Obama being in the White House wasn’t a victory for blacks. It was a victory for whites. And those whites who didn’t take part in that victory can’t deal with it. So they resort to the only thing that makes them feel comfortable…ugliness.
