Texas Dangers In Reaction!


Have you heard the one about Texas? Some folks there, including the governor apparently, believe that the federal government is planning on invading the state and setting up martial law. Of course this could only happen under the "lawless administration" of President Barrack HUSSEIN Obama, we all know that. (Arrggh!) Maybe when our first black president finally leaves office in a few years in a respectful and orderly way just as have his many predecessors, these lunatics on the fringe will be able to relax their sphincters and turn their paranoid attentions back to black helicopters as they should do.

Here is more on this truly staggering exercise in public institutional stupidity. I am planning on using this article in my classes today. I think I picked a choice moment to talk about satire. (Sheesh!)

  1. Wow, did they realize he was cuckoo when they elected him?

  2. Good choice on comic book covers to illustrate this. My guess is Governor Abbott is stalking around his office in his Confederate Captain Doom jacket - while he manages this “threat.”

    1. I really like this Rocke Mastroserio cover, a much overlooked talent.

  3. Obama has always been widely liked in Europe from before he was even elected and the sheer hatred directed towards him from the American Right is amazing even by their standards. I suppose his biggest crime in their eyes is getting elected twice. I see all this stuff on YouTube comments about what a terrible president he is and how he's ruined America which makes me wonder how he got re-elected. From over here the Religious Right and the Tea Party appear not that far from fascism but the fact that Obama got elected twice shows they don't speak for America whatever they seem to think.

    1. People will deny it all day and all night, but much of the animus against the current president if about race. It drives some people completely bonkers in this country that a man of color sits in the oval office. I've always said the Tea Party will disappear when Obama ends his second term, and return to being the Republican Party proper.

      Though the extreme right wing is very very loud here and have succeeded in framing many of the debates to the delight of media which adores conflict, most folks are reasonable and just want to have their leaders help them solve problems and get ahead.
