I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a 65-year-old, white Christian conservative male who has worked hard his whole life and is a loyal patriotic American. For over 200 years, that would have made me a normal American citizen. However, after just 8 years of Barack Obama’s influences, American culture has changed and I am no longer considered a normal American citizen.
Like many of you, I receive tons of emails that are forwarded from one person to another, most of which has some kind of well-intentioned message, but my normal routine is to delete them as I just don’t have time to read them all. However, one such email was brought to my attention and after reading it, I had to share it with all of you as it truly reveals the negative impact that Barack Obama has had on American culture.
The email read:
“What has happened to me? A rather thought provoking note!
I used to think I was just a regular guy, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.
I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.
I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man.
I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
I (and most people I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.
I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens and I honor those who served in the Armed Forces, which now makes me a militant.
Please help me come to terms with the new me, because I’m just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt new found changes in my life and my thinking! I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
Funny all of these changes have occurred in the last seven to eight years!
As if all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with. I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!”
It’s truly sad to see how one man could destroy 200 years of proud rich heritage. I know it wasn’t Obama alone, but most of this took place with his blessing and his policies that brought liberals out of the woodwork. With the help of liberal judges appointed to the bench by a liberal president, only the minority perverts and other liberals are now considered normal.
In less than 10 years, millions of Americans, including myself, have been transformed from being a strong, well-accepted and respected part of American society to being a persecuted and despised group of people considered to be more dangerous than anything else.
One can only hope that under a Trump presidency, some of what we’ve lost can be regained. If so, then and only then can America be great again.
