In 2008, then-Sen. Barack Hussein Obama—with a little help from his friends in ACORN and the New Black Panther Party—usurped the presidency, and began to fulfill his father's Kenyan anti-colonial dreams.

Despite campaigning on an anti-war platform, immediately after seizing power, Obama and his Democrat [sic] party uber alles launched a historically unprecedented "War on Whites."

No doubt, white Christians have borne the brunt of the attacks from the self-styled "Black Jesus" and his disciples, but Obama has proven time and time again that he's an equal opportunity offender.

Even white people who worship the almighty dollar are now feeling the heat.

Elsewhere...

Donald Trump used Twitter to show off his compassionate conservatism.

Continuing his Twitter rant started on Friday, demanding that American healthcare workers infected with the Ebola virus not be allowed back into the country for treatment, bombastic businessman Donald Trump tweeted that healthcare workers "must suffer the consequences," for their humanitarian impulses.
The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!

And he wasn't alone...

Christian crusader Ann Coulter joined Trump's lack-of-pity party.

In her syndicated column Wednesday, conservative columnist Ann Coulter called the American doctor infected with Ebola and now receiving treatment in Atlanta a prime example of "Christian narcissism."

In the column, titled "Ebola Doc's Condition Downgraded To 'Idiotic,'" Coulter called Dr. Kent Brantly's humanitarian work in Liberia nothing more than the efforts of an ego-driven Christian and "the first real-world demonstration of the economics of Obamacare." [...]

She suggested American Christians are simply tired of fighting the "culture war" in the U.S., which is why they "go on 'mission trips' to disease-ridden cesspools."

Meanwhile...

Dr. Ben Carson tried (read: failed) to inject some sanity into the discussion.

Carson said Americans should educate themselves on the virus but said government health policy should be to protect the country against a "worst-case scenario."

An example of that scenario involved a hospital lab worker being bribed $1 million for access to urine that contains Ebola.

"Someone comes up to a lab worker," Carson hypothesized, "He knows he's got the urine; 'How would you like to have a million dollars?' A little transaction there…"

"Such things have been known to happen," he said.

We're all gonna fucking die!

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.
