This came to us via email by a reader that said they’d like to remain anonymous as they don’t really want the IRS showing up at the door.
Dear Mr. President,
I am sorry your Dad turned his back on you. I am sorry your Mom kicked you out of Indonesia and sent you to live with your Grandparents on an island where you didn’t surf. But mostly I’m sorry that you are taking your issues out on the rest of us.
My mom and dad made it through for better or worse, and although we had black kids, Jewish kids, Hispanic kids, a ton of Waps[sic], Pollack’s and Kraut kids in my school, we never noticed the difference. Our folks worried more about the content of character of the kids that we hung out with than their skin color.
You and Mr. Holder can kiss my butt because my folks were no cowards. They were Americans.
My Dad was also a cop. When you said that the Cambridge Police acted stupidly in arresting a highly agitated Professor Gates, you insulted them and my Dad.
When you said that people cling to their Bibles and guns because we are afraid, you alienated the best of us. And, by the way Mr. President, I have heard you say many times:
”The Holy Koran…..” yet I have never heard you comment on the “Holy Bible” or “The Word of God”….. That is an insult to me and over two hundred and forty million of my American Christian Brothers and Sisters.
Last week, in a speech that was supposed to be about the barbaric Islamic State and protecting the American people, I watched you stand in front of the United Nations and proclaim to the world that the United States has it’s own racial and ethnic tensions in places like Fergusson, MO. Yes we do, but in the last six years, you, Sir, have made those tensions worse.
I did not vote for you, but like many of my friends and family, I prayed that your historic election would heal our land. You have been such a disappointment, yet still, I want to give you the benefit of the doubt. I am waiting for my apology. If you truly want to unite us as Americans, perhaps you should stand up and say, ”If I had a son he would have looked like Alton Nolen….” or better yet, “If I had a son, he would have looked like “Jah Keem Yisrael?”
And speaking of Islamic Terrorists….oh, wait, that’s right, you don’t, just ask the folks at Fort Hood. Americans don’t operate out of fear. That’s not who we are. That’s not in our DNA.
If a foreign culture that denigrates women, kills gays and has to wait until they get to Heaven to get laid wants to bring war to our land, then when the time comes, we Americans of all colors, of all political backgrounds, will do what we have always done and take care of business.
Until then, Mr. President, stop disrespecting us.
