BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER -- Mychal Massie
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic." The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.
I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
