As a liberal writer I recently discovered the best way to find out what is going on in the crazy part of America is to infiltrate their Facebook groups and pretend that I am just like them. My boss calls it trolling but I’m like an embryo troll as one of my colleagues put it. I’ve only been at it a week and my brain already feels like it may explode from the abundance of ignorance I’ve subjected myself to.
Yesterday, while perusing the timeline of one of my terrible alts, I came across the usual “Obama is never going to leave office because he’s a Kenyan tyrant” type post that is so popular on the right:

Here is some of the patriotic stuff that can be found on his Facebook page:
Behold! Your typical right-wing, pseudo-Christian patriot who wants to kill the first black president by lynching him. I don’t know about you but I totally believe that a man who would like to see our president assassinated, who doesn’t respect our democracy and wants to elect a xenophobic hate-monger totally loves our country.
