Obama Speech Inspires More Mass Weeping And "Conversions"
Despite the fact that Barack Obama threw his grandmother under the bus by accusing her of being a racist, his speech continues to cause mass weepings and supposed conversions on the Left. I say "supposed conversions" because if someone "converts" from Hillary to Obama, is that really a conversion? It is more like trading one leftist for another leftist. Such was the case today on the heels of yesterday's DUFU EDITION which demonstrated mass Drama Queen weeping on the part of tearful DUmmies. Today it is the turn of the KOmmies to break out the hankies in this KOmmieland THREAD titled, "The Speech and my Mom the White Grandma." This KOmmie thread has the entertaining advantage of injecting a weeping granny "conversion" story into it. So break out the hankies, folks, as the KOmmies melodramatically weep over Barack Obama's Toss Granny Under the Bus Speech in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if Maude Frickert would weep over that speech, is in the [brackets]:
The Speech and my Mom the White Grandma
[WARNING: Severe Drama Queen Alert.]
My Mom has been a diehard HRC supporter from the start.
[Right there you know this will become a melodramatic "conversion" story.]
She has a Hillary sign on her bedroom mirror. She has steadfastly resisted the rest of the family's onslaught in favor of Obama. And we have really worked hard.
[At least we should be grateful that this isn't a "lifelong Republican" conversion story.]
My Mom grew up white and poor in Detroit. And scared of black people.
[The same granny whom Obama tossed under the bus?]
She also worked and volunteered for years helping poor often black people in her new town.
My adopted daughter is from Liberia. I also have kids from El Salvador and Ecuador. My wife from Argentina.
'Race' is ever present in our lives
My Mom, the white grandmother of my black daughter, watched the speech.
And she cried.
She sat quietly for a few minutes without saying a single word...
[Mumsy will also be crying and sitting quietly in shock this November when the election results come in.]
Then she got up, walked into her bedroom and took down her HRC sign.
[The symbolic conversion. Very necessary for just the right melodramatic touch.]
My Mom has said some of the same things as Barack's grandmother I'm sure.
[Mumsy was also a racist like Obama's granny although I have no proof of it.]
But yesterday, a page was turned.
An Eighty-two year old woman changed.
I am ready to believe our nation can too.
["I guess what I'm trying to say is, if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change." ...Sorry, Rocky's already been there, done that.]
And that my kids, black white and Latino can be proud of their country even on the subject of race.
This is not a diary against HRC. It is simply an attempt to document the incredible leadership one candidate is already exercising in this campaign.
I love my Mom, and today, thanks to Barack I can love her more.
[Barack brought my family together encased in a warm coccoon of LOOOOOVE!!!]
There is less between her and the rest of my family.
Yes we can. Come together.
[Thanx to the Obamassiah. Now we open the floodgates to the other tearful KOmmies...]
Just wow is all I can write through the tears. Bless your mom.
[The first few tearful drops of the flood that is to follow. Break out your life preservers, folks!]
I wept while reading Obama's speech. Then I wept again while watching it. I have teared up again and again reading the many personal accounts of how Obama's words have caused change and healing. Your story just got those tears going again. Thank you for sharing your story.
[The KOmmies are trying very hard to match DUmmie flood levels in the Obama speech tears department.]
Pass me the tissues. weeping here
[How about if we just toss you a mop and bucket?]
For some reason, truth, beauty, and bravery bring tears to my eyes much oftener than ugly mean things.
[I disagree. A vicious rightwing victory in November will cause your tears to flow at a much higher rate.]
I will not cry! I will not cry! As God is my witness, I will not...oh crap
[We just FedExed you an emergency supply of hankies.]
I can't read my usual political blogs at my desk because I keep breaking out in tears.
[My DUFU fans can't read your hilarious Drama Queen Queen antics without breaking out in tears of laughter.]
My door is shut and my overactive tearducts are overacting. must be the pollen.
[Or perhaps an allergic reaction to rational thinking.]
My German colleague is used to my getting emotional over something I read online, but I'm glad I have tissues with me today.
[ACHTUNG! You vill only kry on my kommand!]
My eyes are watering and I'm blinking back the tears.
[Sure signs of mental constipation.]
It's past 1:30 a.m on the East Coast and I'm dripping tears on to my laptop, sniffing and smiling at the same time as I read the words in your simple but oh, so powerful diary. It's been that type of time, these past couple of days. Thank you for sharing this with us. It truly is good to hear that people are hearing what Barack has to say and are being moved and inspired by the hope he encourages us to have in our collective future together.
[Yes, Kommies. Keep crying. Perhaps the flood level tears will wash away the fact that Obama's speech did him NO good.]
I watched a southern woman cry while she watched the speech yesterday.
[I watched an Aleut Indian woman cry while she watched the same speech. BWAAAAAAHAHAHA!]
I believe that this speech will have a rippling effect through the pond just as RFK had said in a speech. As many have said, this was the greatest speech on race in this country since MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech.
[Just a pond? You KOmmies and DUmmies are crying enough to fill an ocean.]
Barack Obama...has made this grown man cry more times than I care to admit. God Bless the United States of America. And may God save the next president of the United States, Barack Obama.
[November results will make you cry. Hard. Very hard.]
I haven't stopped crying since the speech. Off and on, all day, in the car, at the sink, at the desk....I just break out in tears. My heart is broken for the hatred that has been sown in our past, and for the hatred that continues on the right today. No matter what happens, I can only hope that yesterday's speech lances the boil of the right, and begins a healing. Their own obvious self-condemnation, and unrealized self-loathing is being projected out onto us all, and poisoning our country. I think they're afraid to see Barack's inner light for fear it will expose the darkness in their own souls, so they have to try to take him down to their level. We can't let them succeed.
[Bitter tears will soon be flowing from this KOmmie's dark soul.]
I can't turn off the waterworks and your diary made me cry again.
[Welcome to the Drama Queen Waterworks.]
I cried, like everyone else, but the chills came first.
[Followed by the thrill running up your leg, Chris.]
I'm in tears here. If the only accomplishment to come out of Sen. Obama's speech was being able to touch just your mother and make her reevaluate her long held beliefs, then I'd say that Obama's words have achieved their goal.
[So you won't be crying in November when Obama loses because his speech had NO effect on the general electorate except to alienate them?]
As with Barack's speech, your diary brought me to tears. Your mother is another example of the audacity of hope coming true.
[The Audacity of Hype is certainly bringing mirthful tears to my eyes.]
I watched the speech a few times. It could have been so great, but he threw his own grandmother under the bus.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
I just yesterday posted online about how my 81 year old, white, avid HRC supporting Stepdad -- who was raised in Kentucky and still uses the "N-word" to refer to African Americans -- was brought to tears when he watched Obama's speech.
[Why don't we just all join together in a mass Cryathon inspired by our Obama Savior?]
my 78 y/o mom also heard the speech. She also cried. She's a fundy right wing nut, and I still love her. I think Mom will vote for Obama.
[Ever stop to think that your "fundy" mom was just laughing so hard that she was crying at your tearful Drama Queen antics?]
