An open letter to Maureen Dowd
I just finished reading your opinion piece in the New York Times online.
I don’t make it a habit to read The Times, but I was told of your piece by a friend.
I just wanted to cordially invite you down here to South Carolina so you can enjoy some of our fine Southern hospitality. After all, the Queen City of Charleston, only 45 miles from my door, is always touted worldwide as being a friendly and polite city. In fact, it was voted the most polite city in America for at least ten years in a row by USA Today. Come sample our great weather, our fine cuisine, our charming antebellum homes, our beaches, and our warm smiles.
And then, get your ass out of here and go home, and please, screw off. I mean that in the nicest way possible.
See? I didn’t even use the F-word, like I so dearly wanted to.
Is it any wonder people here don’t like Yankees? I’ve lived here for almost 9 years now and finally consider it home, and started calling my neighbors “my fellow Carolinians” instead of just “these people here”, and the locals consider me one of them now too. Madam, I was born in Washington, DC, like yourself, and most recently lived in Maine before coming to South Carolina. I have lived amongst the Yankee-est of Yankees for a goodly portion of my 40 years.
Even the White House is distancing itself from your trash. Race-baiting might get you readership amongst the Liberals in New York and Chicago and Los Angeles and San Francisco and Washington and Mecca’s Vineyard, but down here, and in the hearts of true American patriots, it gets you a fine view of our middle fingers.
You see, true American patriots, whether we be Southerners, Northerners, Midwesterners, etc aren’t calling out the Obama administration because we’re racists. Sweetheart, we’re way above such chicanery. We’re simply refusing to accept the socialization and bankrupting of America.
In nine short months, Obama and his minions have unraveled a nation that took 233 years to form. They’ve nationalized the auto industry. They’ve nationalized the banking industry. They’ve nationalized the mortgage industry. They’ve bankrupted children who won’t be born yet for a hundred years paying the trillions in bailouts and pork and graft. They’re trying to nationalize health care. They think illegal aliens are heroes. They play the race card all too often. They free terrorists from Gitmo to kill again and want to empty it completely. They continue to suck Saudi Arabia’s teat for oil rather than let us drill our own. They keep sniveling about Global Warming when it’s been proven to be a tax scam. They hide behind their Hollywood mansion gates and say the government was behind 9-11. They funnel billions to ACORN so that they can stuff ballot boxes, commit large-scale voter-registration fraud, and help people defraud the IRS and other government agencies.
And, by God, we have had enough.
The mainstream Liberal media is content to say that the crowds who gathered yesterday to protest this regime numbered barely in the tens of thousands. You make it sound like it was a small gaggle of crackpots and kooks and nothing to report about, when even the British media is reporting the crowd in DC alone to be near 2 million. Add to that peaceful 2 million the thousands upon thousands at rallies in cities across this great nation, and you don’t have an angry mob, you have a movement.
A movement to take back our country from the people you pander to.
Perhaps you owe the good people of South Carolina, and of every other state in this glorious Union, an apology yourself? We’re waiting…
