WND Writer Attempts 'Satire' In Call To Elect White President, Any White President
Be careful, kids, another rightwing writer has attempted satire. The writer is Mychal Massie, WND's most prominent black person who can't stand what Obama has done to America, and his satirical notion is this: we shouldelect a white Christian conservative who governs as badly as Barack Obama, so that no one will ever be accused of racism again. Funny? It is almost as if Jonathan Swift himself had arisen from the grave and proceeded to stalk the countryside, consuming human flesh and leaving a trail of flames and destruction in the wake of his reanimated corpse.
You know that Massie is an expert political writer, because in his serious-not-sarcastic introduction he invokes a sacred set of Worship Words that will resonate with the reader:
For We the People, Obama’s time in office has thus far been tantamount to a march through hell with the complete deconstruction of America strapped to our backs and with despair and immiseration clenched in our teeth.
Stop laughing at that metaphor, please, he has not gotten to the satirical part yet.
You see, Mr. Massie believes that Barack Obama "has traded on the color of his skin the way prostitutes trade on sexual favors" (still not satire) and that "the Obama sucklings, complicit with a pathetic and biased media, label all criticism of Obama as racist" (nope, not yet). And so, he figures, the only way to escape this is to make sure that " the next president be a white Christian Conservative" (there it is).
You see, if we had a white Christian conservative president, "we can criticize his (or her) policies without concern of being called racists." Even better, there are some problems with the current president that would be avoided altogether, and wouldn't need to be criticized at all!
It would be expected of that person to adhere to the highest standards of integrity, truthfulness, transparency, and protocol. A white Christian Conservative’s wife would be expected to exhibit social grace and decorum consistent with the office her husband held, and not comport herself as a demimonde or slattern in expensive designer clothes.
Oh, that's not actually satire -- Moochelle is just a big fat graceless slovenly cow, HAW HAW!
But on to the really funny reversals of expectations, the very heart of satire. Note how Massie subtly gets his point across without "tipping his hand" that he is using what we in the satire business call "obvious sarcasm":
If a white Christian Conservative were president, we wouldn’t be called racists for condemning his economic record if the number of unemployed (not seasonally adjusted) Americans rose from 91.6 million to 92.594 million, which is an increase of nearly a million people in one month and which is what happened from March 2014 to April 2014 under Obama.
And we would not have to "make up" unemployment numbers that suggest that nearly a third of Americans (including the children!) are unable to get jobs, either.
Also, we could yell "Benghazi!" at the top of our lungs without anyone accusing us of being racist. Idiots, maybe, but not racist. Also, did he mention that Michelle Obama is Marie Antoinette? If only she weren't black, he could say that without being called a racist.
We'll give Mychal Massie this much: he makes us yearn for the National Review's hilarious soccer jokes.
Follow Doktor Zoom on Twitter. He would make fun of Mychal Massie, but that would probably make him some kind of racist.
