One can only assume Fox News has something to do with this. All I want is for people to be more like me. I have my phone next to me at all times, Google is my home page. I do my own research. When I hear something that I have no clue about, I make sure I look it up & do the research myself. That doesn’t seem to happen lately.
Case in point: President Obama is a Muslim … Uh, NO he’s not. But still people believe this nonsense. This can only happen for two reasons, in my opinion. The people who believe it are racists. Yeah, I said it … and I’ll say it again. The people who believe President Obama is Muslim, ARE racists. I even read one Facebook comment stating that he has a picture of the President praying to Mecca. Really? Post it. Did he? Of course not. It doesn’t exist, unless it’s been photoshopped. I mean seriously, you don’t think Fox News would have been all over this during the campaign? They weren’t. All they talked about was Rev. Wright.
The other reason is that the Americans who believe this are too lazy to do their own research, and just take what Fox News says as gospel. That really ‘grinds my gears,’ as Peter Griffin would say.
The other one is that President Obama was not born in America. Good grief. Really? That’s all you can come up with? I feel sorry for the President. First black President in this country’s history and he has to deal with people hating him for his skin color. What century is this? What country am I in? It’s embarrassing.
