Taking Advantage of the Handicapped

Taking Advantage of the Handicapped
David Schlecht

I’m sure we all remember back in our school years and those few sick kids who would take advantage of the mentally handicapped by calling them names or telling jokes about them, just so they looked better.

We were young, indeed, when we learned that it was wrong to take advantage of the weak. We learned that there was something wrong with people who did that. We learned that it was a sign of weakness when someone had to capitalize on the indefensible.

Fear and Hatred are two of the strongest emotions that make us weak, that handicap us. If you’re afraid, it is so much more likely that you’ll make a mistake. The same goes for hatred. Some of us are just doing the best we can with what we’ve got and nobody has the right to take advantage of us. No one!

But, there is an organization that is out there every single day trying to take advantage of the weak and the handicapped and even those who are too busy to pay attention. Are you being taken advantage of?

How are we being taken for a ride? What are the tricks? What are some examples? I’ll share the secrets with you.

The organization that is out there trying to make their lives better at our expense is using fear and hatred and just downright taking advantage of the naive, handicapped, or uneducated.

What examples of fear do you hear regularly? If you’re over 40, you remember the fear that was relentlessly fanned about the scary communists. Russia, the Soviet Union was the big scary monster in the dark. We even had drills to hide under our school desks in the event of a raid. Regular fear sessions. Who was encouraging the fear? Who was fanning the flames of fear of the Soviets?

Then came the Muslims. The same organization ran out of the fear when the Soviet Union collapsed so they needed a new boogy man to fear. So, they started fanning the fear of Muslims. Now that bin Laden has been killed, they’re, again, running out of things to make us fear.

They make us fear the brown skinned Mexicans coming to steal our jobs. They make us fear the gays and the gay agenda. They make us fear teachers forcing our kids to be gay or want to do sex. They make us hate and fear the liberals, the commies, the fascists.  They make us fear that Obama is coming for our guns.

They make us believe that Obama doesn’t have a birth certificate so they can sow fear that our president is a secret Muslim. They make us believe that Obama wasn’t born in America and fear that¬† we have an illegitimate president.

They make us fear and hate the blacks, the orientals, the hispanics, the Arabs.

Now, stop and think about all the bad things that I’ve been describing. How many of them are things we need to continue to fear? How many of them are manufactured by the Republican party to keep their voters uneducated and upset about the things they hate and fear?

The Republican party is making fools of every single Republican voter out there. If you don’t believe the lies, why do you vote for the liars? Why do you vote for the party that is taking advantage of the less educated among us? Why vote for the party that has to use hate and fear to get you to vote against your own best interests?

Are you a Republican? Are you waking up yet?

I know, the Democratic party is just as bad. At least that’s what we’re led to fear.
