On today’s episode, we have a statement from a certain commentator at a certain UNREAD website. See if you can spot the tell:
We felt this sense of pride that America had transcended its centuries of institutional racism and elected a black guy as our Commander-in-Chief.
It’s like a fart in an elevator, right? Even if you wanted to escape it you can’t.
But you know, some folks love to complain about CONTEXT. So here’s the whole paragraph.
Eight years ago today, January 20, 2009, my wife and I stood, holding hands, in front of our couch, watching as Barack Obama took the oath of office. We felt this sense of pride that America had transcended its centuries of institutional racism and elected a black guy as our Commander-in-Chief.
That is some kickass GS13 fed to fed writer/editoring, is what that is. “Look at my virtuous virtue signaling while simultaneously crankstomping my virtue by using a most decidedly un-PC pejorative to describe our checked-out Lightbringer and SCOAMF President!”
I’m tempted to say words fail, but there’s this post I’m writing, so…no.
Thank God President Trump is here to lead us out away from this kind of idiocy and into a whole fresh new brand of idiocy.
