The first thing I saw on my social media page after the Mid-term election results were confirmed was “God is Good”! There must have been hundreds of like comments one after another proclaiming or maybe asking God to take care of us. I agree if there was ever a time when we need his mercy – it is now, because we have just been delivered unto evil. Tuesday’s results affirmed some of the most extreme right-wing radicals ever elected to Congress in recent memory. Make no mistake the new crop of radicals have one goal and purpose, which is to destroy the black man – President Obama!
Let’s take a look at just a few of the extremists: Glenn Grothman, who won Wisconsin’s 6th District. Grothman wants to eliminate weekends and believes “no people…care about Kwanza…” He co-sponsored a bill that equated single-parenthood with child abuse. In addition… agrees with Joni Ernst, known as the castrator, that there should be a personhood amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Everyone knows the Tea Party’s agenda to take back their country. The question then becomes – how far they want to take it back. Yet, white America voted these people into power in most cases overwhelmingly.
Then there is the House Speaker from North Carolina elected Senator once tacked an anti-abortion provision to a motorcycle safety bill that would have closed all but one of North Carolina’s abortion clinics. He also compared welfare to reparations, claiming the United States has “redistributed” “trillions of dollars over the years” — amounting to “de facto reparations.” In addition he, Tillis has stated, “What we have to do is find a way to divide and conquer the people who are on assistance.”
More frightening was the election of Mitch McConnell as the leader of the pack. This is the guy who has said on many occasions that it is his intent to “make this president a one term president” and to “repeal Obama Care”. For sure, we will see the war mongers come out and see that the rich get richer be it from harmful trade agreements and deregulation. Let’s not forget the privatization of Social Security and Medicaid. We will see investigation after investigation and yes – IMPEACHMENT of the president.
White America can take credit for this because they voted against their own interest to show their hatred for President Obama. I’m reminded of that old saying be careful what you ask for because you might get it. The history if this gang is clear. They have done nothing but obstruct and say no to everything that might benefit the American people. Now has the burden to produce!
It’s incumbent upon these far-right wing radicals to show it can accomplish something. My sense in these far-right radicals, who have said, they want their country back will take a from the time of reconstruction and we know how that worked out. Now might be a good time to ask God to Bless America because we’ve got some difficult times ahead. And that’s my thought provoking perspective.
