Disrespecting The Office Of The Presidency
Why, all of a sudden, is there such a brazen and persistent disrespect for the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America? Just this month, alone, there have been at least two occasions where there was little or no respect shown to the highest office in the land.
Taking center stage, of course, is Congressman Joe Wilson's spectacle. Wilson seems to think that his action was just moral indignation. And why shouldn't he? Many in his party still think that Obama is not even a legal citizen of the United States. Some also believe that the president is a closet Muslim, and a dangerous subversive socialist. Many of the extreme whackjobs are sure that Obama is the Anti-Christ, and that he is going to fulfill the prophesies of the New Testament and Nostradamus.
Another issue that some people decided to use to disrespect the president was his speech to school children. These people were told, by all the conservative talk show host, that Obama's speech was a propaganda tool, aimed at turning their children into some kind of Hitler Youth-and they believed it, without question! Listeners were advised to make their kids stay home that Tuesday. They immediately obeyed, and kept their kids home on the day of the president's speech. Why? The speech was only a positive motivational message asking kids to stay in school, study, and contribute something to society. There seemed to be no problem back when Ronald Reagan or George H.W. Bush did it.
Looking more closely at these events, it does not take much reasoning to conclude that there is some other issue here, because all these accusations are baseless. There is a hidden agenda. This is all about race.
