Former 'Religious Right' Republican to Obama: 'You're going to be vindicated'
I predict that in the future historians will judge the opposition from Congress to President Barrack Obama as pure racism. There will be no other logical explanations. He has been accused of being a far-left liberal, radical, socialist and communist. None of that is true. He was a center left politician. That only leaves racism as an explanation to the stiff opposition to his rule. –SJ Otto
From Daily Kos:
Frank Schaeffer is an American author, film director, screenwriter, public speaker and painter. He is the son of the late theologian and author Francis Schaeffer. He is also a self-proclaimed “former member of the Religious Right and Republican Party.”
On April 6, 2016, Schaeffer decided to make a video describing what made him leave the GOP and express his appreciation to Barack Obama whom Schaeffer now calls “a great president.”
In the beginning of the short video, (which would not copy to this blog. To see it, go to the original article.) Schaeffer blasts angry viscous racists...
“...who are trying to get back at Obama who committed the faux pas of being a black man, who also brought our country back to economic health, ended two wars, kept our country stable and prosperous during a time when he inherited the worst situation possible from probably the biggest fool we’ve ever had for a president.”
The artist adds his son, a Marine, was sent to the Iraq war, which was “an unnecessary war.” Scheffer’s son made it back safe, but many of his son’s friends did not. Schaeffer says he left the party because he “couldn’t stand the hatred anymore, the anti-gay bias, the anti-black bias, the anti-women bias and the kind of bullshit Donald Trump is spouting.” Schaeffer in his tribute talks about how President Obama has forged ahead in spite of these obstacles.
