This song is in response to Jerome Doolittle’s post from Ezra Klein about Tom Coburn and the death wish Coburn made for Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia. It appears Senator Coburn inherited the genes of the people who lynched a a family in the hills of Okemah, Oklahoma many years ago, since their spirit lives on in Senator Coburn, as evidenced by his recent comment.
No wonder Woody Guthrie left Oklahoma. It appears that the genes of the killers who are revealed in this song are still around in the minds of at least one of the people of the Oklahoma hills and plains. My apologies to the good people of Oklahoma, wherever they may be. So let’s hear about that genetic background from an almost forgotten Woody Guthrie Song.
My apologies to my Democratic friends who might find this analogy disgusting, but I’m still disgusted about unnecessary attacks on Bill Clinton involving a prosecutor named Ken Starr and cigars and blue dresses and what was done to Howard Dean, and how John Kerry was treated and the many, many people who were dragged through the mud by Republicans in the years since Karl Rove and Lee Atwater arrived on the scene. People dragged through the mud for no good reason at all. All of the people involved in those episodes and many, many more are nothing but modern day lynchers of good men and women’s reputations. And one can make an analogy that those opposing the health care bill will likewise be killers of the babies and sons of young ladies like the one singing this song if the health care bill fails.
Furthermore, I offer my apologies to the people who unknowingly elected a person who carries around death wishes in his head; for you, I would offer the words of Christ: Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do. Maybe next time election time comes around they will think about Coburn’s comments about Senator Byrd when they cast their votes.
UPDATE: It appears that teabaggers from all over the country are now praying for Senator Byrd to die. One teabag caller on C-Span noted that Senator Inhofe was absent from the floor and wondered if the praying had “backfired” on them.
Think Progress has the story and a video and Taggan Goddards political wire also has a video post. Go there to watch the disgusting video. In light of these new developments, I am no longer letting Oklahomans who voted for Coburn off the hook and the teabaggers doing this praying are going to have God strike them or their relatives down sooner or later. Christians don’t pray for other human beings to die. The Ten Commandments demand that. Only pagans, people who have inherited lynching genes do. And there appear to be a lot of you among the teabagger, maybe all of you.
