That’s not a word you hear enough these days. It’s a nasty word, and is meant to be. At its most neutral, it merely designates someone born out of wedlock. Since the national rate of bastardy exceeds 40%, being a bastard is, sadly, becoming the norm.
Especially among blacks, where some 70% of births are illegitimate. If there is any good news, it is that the total numbers of such births have declined significantly in recent years. As for your half-black president, he’s a bastard. Perhaps you knew this, but not for partisan reasons.
Why do I label Obama a bastard? Because it is literally true. From the overly-sympathetic Washington Post, the simple facts:
[Barack] Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961.
In other words, Obama Sr. was not legally married when Obama Jr. was born. Well, we can’t blame Obama for the fact that his father was deficient in the morals department. Sins of the fathers, and all of that.
But the sycophants in the mainstream media just have to let us know that Mitt Romney and Barack Hussein Obama are really both quintessentially American. This is in the “best defense is a strong offense” category. Because it’s pretty easy to paint the dog-eating, son of a bigamist Marxist Kenyan and former Indonesian Muslim as being weird. So, we’d best make sure that Americans know that those pesky Mormons are just as weird. Except they’re not even close to Obama on the weirdness scale.
A sample from the Post? In the article quoted above,
For both presidential candidates to have fathers born outside the United States — what could be more American than that?
Yes, there are a lot of us, me included, whose fathers were born overseas. But my parents, as were Mitt Romney’s, were American citizens and married to each other when we were born. Obama’s father was not a citizen, and his parents were not married. Big difference.
To channel my inner Seinfeld, not that there’s anything wrong with that…
Mitt Romney is the son and grandson of non-polygamous American citizens. Barack Hussein Obama is the son and grandson of Kenyan wife-beating polygamists. And that tasty dog meat when Obama was being raised in Indonesia by his Muslim step-father speaks volumes as well.
My suggestion to Democrats: don’t let anyone in your ranks say anything about how weird Mitt Romney is alleged to be. It will backfire.
