WAAH! – POT CALLING KETTLE! WHO’S THE REAL RACIST HERE?
What the heck did Hank Aaron think was going to happen after he made the claim that republicans were like the KKK because the majority of the right thinking citizens disagree with Dear Leader’s policies and such…hmm?
So, since he came out with that comparison regarding this matter, he’s now been receiving tons of mail…some of the responses are now being labeled ‘hate mail’ and such. Nevertheless, what the hell did he think was going to happen? Did he think everyone across this land would remain silent about this issue? Is he really that dense? Did he not expect backlash and disappointment and disgust from others…especially those of all races that used to admire and support him for many years? I’ve heard many conservative talk-show hosts express their disappointment in him right after this brouhaha started. Heck, they all said they had previously held him in high esteem since they were young, but no longer do in any way, shape, or form.
Aaron created this mess, he’d better learn to live with it. He has no one to blame but himself…period!
Here’s one of many reports I’ve read this morning. See what you think, there are also a lot of links inside if you want to check them out via the link provided:
Obama’s approval rating is at 40 percent – with 53 percent of Americans disapproving of his disastrous policies.
So now Aaron is receiving hate mail and some of it is racist.
CBS Local reported:
Hall of Famer Hank Aaron has been receiving racist letters following comments he made seemingly comparing Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan.
The 80-year-old Aaron told USA Today Sports last week: “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go. The bigger difference is back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
Since the comments went viral, USA Today Sports reports that the Atlanta Braves front office has been deluged with racist letters and emails regarding Aaron.
“Hank Aaron is a scumbag piece of (expletive) (racial slur),” a man named Edward wrote in an email, according to USA Today Sports. “My old man instilled in my mind from a young age, the only good (racial slur) is a dead (racial slur).”
Some letters call Aaron a “racist scumbag” and “classless, racist.” Others said they would never attend a Braves game again until the team fires him as senior vice president.
In the original interview, Aaron stated that there is still room for improvement for race relations in the U.S.
It would be interesting to see how many of the hate emails DID NOT include racial slurs.
Aaron needs to apologize for his outrageous remarks.
Now, read this and see if you’re shocked…especially considering the source it came from. The picture above puts it in a nutshell:
