Boo-hoo! Jumping on the ‘Deeply Offended’ Bandwagon …

Written by Candace Hardin on July 15, 2014

It seems that a parade goer was deeply offended and afraid of the outhouse float of the Obama presidential library that was exhibited in Norfolk, Nebraska. The person in question is a native of Kenya. She seemed to feel that it was a racist statement. As the article below states, perhaps she never saw the Luckovich cartoon of another outhouse labeled the Bush Presidential Library.

It is always politically correct to malign President Bush, but not the current administration’s illustrious leader.

Of course, over the last six years, everything is a racist statement. Especially if the statement disagrees with the current administration or any of its loyal, robot minions.

If any person has the gall to think for themselves or investigate matters thoroughly, they also fall into the racist category. It has become a useless, all-purpose, knee jerk, flaccid word for the liberal left.

Due to the fact that this “offense” is a total non-issue, it seems that Eric Holder has started an investigation into the “incident.”

It is a good thing that he doesn’t have time to address things like Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal or the border crisis, he has to save himself for complete and total nonsense. One person feels offense and because of this person, it is a big deal to the local parade officials and the Attorney General of the United States.

I have something that deeply offends me as well. Being that it has been on my mind for a long time, I feel it needs to be fully addressed by someone official. I am sure I am not the only one who has this concern, so I invite anyone to join me in my quest for justice in this totally unfair situation.

I am going to share with you what offends me.

When I was a girl, I was sure that I would grow up to be Barbie.

I would have the Barbie corvette, camper, Malibu dream house and a killer wardrobe. I would have legs from the floor up to there and breasts that would never sag.

Barbie has had several very successful careers, too. She was a model, a doctor, a flight attendant. etc.

My career was destroyed by the financial powers of Wall Street, et al. Now, I am lucky just to work at 40 % of my previous salary.

So, I want to know who is going to make all of these shortcomings up to me.

Obviously, compensation has not been made and I want you to know I am truly offended. Since it is so fashionable to be offended, I want to jump on the bandwagon.

Anyone who disagrees with me, is a racist and anti-Barbie.

Complete and total drivel? Yes, and so it all of the other offended folks out there in the world.

Grow up, and walk away if some little bit of bull residue bothers you. The world does not revolve around you. Surprise!

Since I am making a call for justice, how about the Attorney General apply himself to the real and highly illegal scandals that have come up in the current administration?

Is that too much to ask?
