Firing Obama. America’s REAL Test on Race.
To a great degree, the election of 2008 was a real test for the evolution of American society when it comes to the complicated condition of race in the nation. Had a nation, with such a diabolical history on racial treatment, been sufficiently healed to actually elect a black man to the office of President of the United States?
On that November night in 2008, the answer was clearly, “yes”. All across the nation and the planet, eyes filled with water as Barack Obama strolled to the podium in a packed Chicago park as the President-elect. A camera close-up showed Jesse Jackson crying like a baby that was just denied a snow cone. Juan Williams of Fox News blubbered on camera as it struck him that a black man had just been elected to the most powerful position in the universe. It appeared to the masses that America had evolved, passed the threshold on whether it remained a “racist country”, and had finally buried the ghosts of slavery, discrimination, segregation, and lynchings passed.
Then a disturbing challenge to the new feeling of racial reconciliation arose – the first term of President Obama.
It became clear from the outset that the whores of socialism, social justice and racial politics – primarily and nearly exclusively Democrats – couldn’t leave their well-rooted habits of race baiting behind. Although American racial history was made with the election of Obama, the old guard that stemmed from the civil rights movement couldn’t be delivered from their well-practiced modus operandi of making everything about race. The water was poisoned early as any opposition to the President’s socialist agenda was quickly labeled as racist and summarily thwarted to a great extent.
For two full years, with complete control of the federal government, the Democratic Party went about its traditional business of degrading race relations in the country.

Could one go on with an exhaustive list of usurpations this administration has committed? Of course. And, would not the chronicled response of the Left be the same? Of course. All of the opposition to the usurpations stem from the innate racism that lingers in America.
But the threats of the ObamaZombies boil down to one essential truth in their warped minds: NOT TO VOTE FOR OBAMA FOR A SECOND TERM? RACIST!
The Left and the Democratic Party are composed of the certifiably insane.
America FAILED the first test of racial evolution. America DIDN’T hire the best person for the job by electing Mr. Obama. They elected him with a heart conditioned through affirmative action. “It’s the black man’s turn, this time”. And what has been the result? Barack Obama has done a horrific job as chief executive of the nation.
Therefore, the REAL test for America on the issue of the evolution of race relations has yet to be completed. That evolutionary advancement may become clearer as the election returns for 2012 roll in.
Recognizing that Mr. Obama has failed at the job for which he was hired – namely leading the nation out of economic illness – can the majority white electorate, after having elected him, turn around and FIRE Obama for making things worse?
Or, will the avalanche of charges of “racism” over the past four years intimidate the electorate into voting for the under-skilled, under-prepared, under-performing first black president again because of the fear of being called “racist”?
Well, let us go ahead and FIRE Obama – regardless of the potential consequences — because that’s the REAL test of our racial evolution. Do we as a nation acknowledge, despite someone’s skin pigmentation or office, that if the person in question has not done a good job that they need to be fired?
Let us go ahead and FIRE Obama. Because here’s the good news: He can’t file an EEOC complaint or sue for dismissal due to racial discrimination. America hired him regardless of his race. Now, we have the right to FIRE him, no matter the fact that he’s black.
To FIRE Obama means America has truly evolved, racially.
