I wasn't the intended recipient of this e-mail. The only visible addresses are from one person to the same person.  My guess is that the e-mail was sent to a group of people using the BCC line which allows the sender to address multiple people without giving the receivers the e-mails addresses of the others.  

The sender is Texas and I am a Defense Logistics Agency employee in Pennsylvania.  I don't know the sender who seems to be a mid level Senior Executive Service at a related agency.  Since we are in the same global address book it looks like they made a mistake in addressing the message.  

There is no good reason to broadcast the sender's identity just because they hold opinions that I find offensive.  The sender frequently authors internal articles in a public affairs type function.  

It looks like they found an article they find informative and interesting which needed to be shared.   Below the fold it is offered up for your comments.  The formatting got a bit odd when I sent it from work to home.

Maureen Scott nails Obama - The first President that hates America.

The sender could better express the wonderful thoughts of Maureen Scott so they repeated the final points before repeating the entire blog.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

* Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

* Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

* Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.

Subject: The Architect of Destruction

Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to Richmond, VA, in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions, as do I.

Our Pledge of Allegiance, a military band playing the National Anthem, and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, inspire her passion and views. Her life is guided by a firm belief that truth is the most important virtue, and that God knows what He is doing with her. She is my guest writer today, for I could have never said it better. Please take the time to read and listen to this good American woman. I believe you will be glad you did. I give you Maureen Scott.

The Architect of Destruction

By Maureen Scott  

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors...it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America.  Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a grandfather or uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America , penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

                      That's why it can sometimes be a good idea to try to find the source of an email, before copy and pasting it into a diary.

                      We still want to give adherence to copyrighted material on this site. And even if you got it from an email and that person quoted the whole thing, it doesn't mean we can do the same thing here.

    Maureen Scott's views. She can wrap it in all the militarism, patriotism, and religion she wants but only a willing fool would buy into her predictable and pathetic brand of RW crazy riddled with fanciful lies and the now all-too familiar conservative deceit. Ms. Scott offers nothing of value to the national discourse on how to move this nation forward but instead resorts to the usual RW bullying one expects to hear from self-involved middle school adolescent Heathers who don't like the new guy because he doesn't wear the right shoes.

    Ms. Scott's fear of the "other" is on full view for all to see; the insecurity she wears on her sleeve could not be any more obvious, unattractive, or disgusting. Her smear of Obama is nothing new, interesting, or revelatory. All she has accomplished is to immortalize her derangement in words. At least her hateful self-deluded diatribe will make it resoundingly clear to her descendants exactly who the nutcase was in the family.

    And anyone who actively peddles her inanity and insanity should be embarrassed and ashamed. But that would require that they possess even the slightest degree of capacity for critical thinking or reason. Unfortunately those traits are in exceedingly short supply in conservative circles.

  •  Having read "Dreams from My Father" (10+ / 0-)

    i can confirm that nothing she alleges about Obama's upbringing is true.  His Grandfather fought in WWII and yeah, he bounced on his knee. Yes, he grew up in a place that is respectful and patriotic toward America, where do you think Pearl Harbor is?

    Yes, we have heard Barack Obama speak lovingly of America, it's heritage, it's majesty and potential - that's what his 2004 Convention Speech did where he said there's not a "Blue America and a Red America, there's the United States of America".

    This seems like a ton of projection when she talks about "not respecting the opinions of others", rather she and her ilk refuse to respect the opinion of any who may find deficiency and/or the need for improvement in America.

    They think it's fine just the way it was.

    The only link to anything factual seem to be Obama not putting his hand over his heart for that one "Star Spangled Banner" photo during the Democratic Primaries of 2008, and the fact that ever since he's been President the Republicans have been in total obstruction mode, as if he has some universal remote to control their recalcitrance.

    But what's most insidious about this is the presumption that any man like Obama, and it's clearly implied any Black Man, must harbor  a seething pile of resentment against America for some imagined historical slight.  Be it the minor issue of Slavery, or Jim Crow or Segregation or being blocked from Voting or perhaps even the near capital offense of Breathing While Black.  

    "Why can't they just get over it and shrug it off, the way the Irish did the Potato Famine and Jews have with Aushwitz?"

    Yeah, well, since it was American Choices that has brought about the equivalent of ongoing Black Holocaust in America, it becomes a bit hard to forget - but we should all strive to end and improve.

    Unfortunately that isn't on the agenda for the intended recipients of that letter.

  •  facts are wrong, not just conclusion & conjecture (6+ / 0-)
    It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a grandfather or uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free.

    Obama's great uncle was at Normandy and his grandfather was a WWII vet, IIRC.

    It's interesting to contrast Obama to his half brother Mark, also born to a white american woman. Mark would likely be a US citizen because of his mother, but lived in Kenya, went to  US-colleges, and later lived in China and Hong Kong. Whereas Obama spent his formative years in Indonesia and Hawaii. His Hawaii years, told from his autobiography, come across as similar to many young kids in my midwest town: rather laid back, because grandpa and grandma hang out at home.  They watch TV, chit chat with friends,  eat boring food.  What I'm saying is that many of Obama's years were fairly typical american fare whereas Mark's were not. It was the access to his Grandparents that personally ground Obama as well as americanized him with a transplanted midwest culture.

  •  Just wondering . . . (5+ / 0-)

    if I understand the situation correctly. You and the email sender work for a federal government agency? Does it have a policy for employees on the use of its email system?
    I think it must and I think that using it for sending personal messages would be prohibited, especially if the content is inappropriate.

    Some years ago, in the private sector, I worked for a very large corporation that was obligated to maintain control of what its employees were sending electronically. The solution was an application that screened and filtered messages for surveillance.  A team reviewed what employees were sending and this type of email was pretty commonplace.  It was also a violation of the company policy on the use of its system.

    This type of email monitoring is considered the norm today for top tier companies that need it for legal and regulatory compliance. It may sound intrusive but the company isn't paying its employees to send trash. You'd be surprised what some people send in attachments from their desks at work.

    I can't imagine that your employer doesn't have a similar policy.

        In the private sector, the employees are informed about the monitoring of email so that they have a fair chance to change their behavior. After that, they don't have any excuses.

        The company was only interested in protecting itself. Once an email is sent, it can be forwarded to other destinations, with resulting consequences.  

        In Defense, I'd be concerned about the content of this email. If it was sent by active duty military personnel or support, it would be asking for trouble. Defense is different but the message is far enough over the line to raise questions about performance and loyalty.

        If I decided to report it, I'd do it anonymously.

          He asked my name and I spelled it out for him and asked him if his e-mail was hacked or he just hated the president.  The response was even worse, he asked me to just delete the e-mail.  If this is a violation of regulations or law he was asking me to destroy evidence.  

          I work with plenty of people who would find the Ms. Scott a truth teller.  Most of them are decent people I disagree with but like.  I believe having smug attitudes of superiority is a great aid to reaching high levels in corporate or government bureaucracies.  I'm sure if they bothered to check out who the other recipients of the email were they could find a whole series of similar exchanges.  I just don't think anyone would want to check.

          I could be wrong.  As a Government employee if have to sit through an ethics class every year.  Our ethics lawyer seems intelligent and is always very good about getting through the lecture decently and most important quickly.  But an investigation is a lot of trouble, the sender is in a parallel organization and it would be very easy to just send  any complaint away and forget it.  

          Ethics is a tool to get rid of troublemakers, things done by higher graded people are of course correct.  

          I'll send it up just to test my preconceptions.  Anonymous reports just seem unmanly.

      Sorry wasn't clear enough.  The sender seems to have an SES position.  You know people that:

      The Senior Executive Service (SES) is comprised of the men and women charged with leading the continuing transformation of government. These leaders possess well-honed executive skills and share a broad perspective of government and a public service commitment which is grounded in the Constitution. The keystone of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, the SES was designed to be a corps of executives selected for their leadership qualifications.

      Members of the SES serve in the key positions just below the top Presidential appointees. SES members are the major link between these appointees and the rest of the Federal work force. They operate and oversee nearly every government activity in approximately 75 Federal agencies.

    and saw a headline of the Globe(?) tabloid that said: Woman murdered because she knew where Obama was actually born.
    ODS is huge and it must be profitable in some way.

    upon heaps of crap. It actually disgusts me that I live in a nation that has some of the most dumbed down people ever and so gullible! That old if you fall for something you can fall for anything is so true. I have coined all kinds of terms for ODS, amazing that we have 3 more years to go of this. But I rather go through with this than another 3 years of a war we shouldn't have been in, so I am sure there will be more posts illustrating the idiocy of these looneytunes. But I still am happy that I have 3 more years of this administration as opposed to anything else as a choice.

    but the hatred of President Obama is shared by people you wouldn't expect. The RWMJ David Mamet, for example, has published an anti-Obama rant in Playboy magazine. It's of the "Obama is a Marxist" flavor and, except for the (slightly) better English, is as RAI as the craziest Tea Bagger.
