As @Verucablue on Twitter said, Obama is the PRESIDENT, not the leader of Heaven's Gate. Jim Greer is an arse. No question about it. Any adult in power should not be talking about our president as if he's a cult leader or the leader of a socialist country.
They perceive the "indoctrination" as PART of Obama's larger socialist plot. They have it all mapped out. They've been talking about this for at least two years now on fringe sites. Every move Obama makes is an indoctrination of sorts. I've concluded that these wingnuts are simply racist.
Obama's presidency has triggered a kind hate and idiocy that I've never seen before. The racism in this country is both overt and subtle. These wingnuts in power could never be overtly racist, so they deem Obama a cult leader. It's wingnut code. On the fringe sites, where people are anonymous, they don't hold back on the overt racism. They say exactly what they mean.
This is what they believe: Obama is a black radical leader, who's going to destroy "white culture," take away guns, indocrinate the youth into socialism and put all the black people in power. Deep down, that's what these people are afraid of--black people in power. Obama's presidency is a signal to them that the world is changing and they don't like it one bit.
What really offends me is the media validation of these people, treating people like Jim Greer as if he isn't a nutjob. He's a crazy hater. Treat him like one. Don't make it seem like any point he has to make is legitimate. We live in a country with 300 million people and you'd think that lunatics rule the country. Their voices are heard above everyone else's.
