Why Twitter (and the Right) Needs To Grow Up

.
Tonight, the “Twittersphere” is abuzz with the hashtag #ObamaDogRecipes.  And the reason is simply childish.  It is an excerpt from chapter two of Obama’s Dreams from My Father:

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”

.

Let’s get real folks: people in other countries eat dogs.  And cats.  And horses.  And many other things that we gastrointestinally-feeble Americans deem disgusting or wrong.  This has been happening for millenia, and continues today.

.

Get over it.  Grow up.

.

In modern times, dog is eaten more than most people realize.  It is consumed in the following countries:

Canada, Switzerland, China, Vietnam, North Korea, South Korea, New Zealand, Taiwan (illegal, but allegedly still occurs), and Japan (imports dog meat from China).  In Canada, it is legal, and acceptable, to sell dog meat – so long as the meat was inspected by federal inspectors.

Dog meat is also eaten and considered a delicacy in India, Ghana, and East Timor.

.

I understand that it is fun to crack jokes and make fun of the sitting president – Jay Leno has made a career out of it.  If the left wants to make a stir about Mitt Romney’s story about a dog on the roof of his car – Let Them!  Who cares?!  The Left will show their true colors, but don’t allow them to drag Conservatives into the gutter alongside them.

In the current political climate, let’s all try and stay focused on the task of restoring our Country and Constitution… and leave the childish games to the children.

    Yeah, it’s not like he put the dog on top of the car.

    Shhhh. Treena is actually a GOP operative. See the GOP is pretty piss poor at marketing their message so occasionally they will put in a fake poster that is so hysterically over the top so that party loyalists will easily slap it back down. It’s kind of silly but but… but…

    *ring*
    Hello?…. Really? The GOP doesn’t do that? …. so… she really believes it? OH! Oh. Ooooooooooohhhh.

    So. Anyone got a tranq gun and a net?
