Terry McMillan goes on anti-Romney, anti-privatization, race-baiting rant



Obama’s faltering savior status has really gotten to Terry McMillan. The “Waiting to Exhale” author apparently just couldn’t stand it anymore, and she took to Twitter to lash out at all the conservative evils that are making our current president look bad:

When I criticize Mr. M, you'd swear I was the only one the way his base comes after me. They take it so personally. He's not presidential.

Unlike, say, this guy.

McMillan went on to praise the government for bringing us … civility?

Were it not for many levels of government this country would not exist. There would be no civility, roads, bridges, etc

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

And were it not for the people, there would be no government. Or railroads. Or bridges. Terry can’t seem to remember who works for whom. Elizabeth Warren must be squeeing so hard right now.

Education should be free. Period.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

These future great American thinkers couldn’t agree more:

McMillan continued:

Were it left to Republicans, corporations would run this country. My bad. They're almost there. They screwed it up in 2008.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

Corporations? Eeeewwwwww! Icky corporations with their icky money … we need to keep them out of politics. Money and influence should only come from politically reputable sources.

Republicans want to privatize everything that has made this country great. Look what greed has done, Enough is never enough for corps

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

Terry, dear, you’ve been hanging out with Matt Yglesias, haven’t you? You two kids should hold a garage sale to rid yourselves of all those private possessions that remind you of your greed. And while you’re at it, feel free to redistribute some of that pesky $40 million personal fortune that’s clearly weighing so heavily on your conscience.

The fact that Mr. M & GOP want to cut education and medicaid says it all. They've got theirs already. Except for their dumb base.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

Like Pauley Perrette, McMillan has the amazing ability to hear dog whistles hidden in Mitt Romney’s words. Maybe we need a Q-Tip, but we failed to hear Romney brand 47 percent of Americans as dumb.

Ooo, and speaking of dog whistles, what would a McMillan rant be without a little race-baiting?

It is hard for me to believe that in 2012 white men are telling women what we can & can't do with our bodies. Who made them God?

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

There are more white people on welfare and getting food stamps than black people. And they will vote against their own best interest.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

Right. It’s in Americans’ best interest to stay completely dependent on the government. Upward mobility? Faith in personal ability? Screw that stuff!

I think Republicans are scared because there are too many people of color in this country, hence: voter suppression, privatization, etc.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

What’s truly scary is that in this day and age, McMillan has so little confidence in “people of color” being able to take care of and think for themselves without having their hands held by Big Daddy Government. Americans are suppressed when they’re reduced to little more than pathetic Julias who are told they can no longer take ownership of their property and their individuality.

Republicans are responsible for the tax codes that allows them to milk the loopholes and pay little or no taxes. Whine about 47%? Please.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

Republicans think we're bowling pins.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

How so? Because while Democrats believe that once you’re knocked down, you stay there, but Republicans believe it’s possible to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and face the next obstacle coming your way?

Mitt Romney is not competent enough to be President of the United States of America. As should be obvious by now.

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

No, Terry. What’s obvious is that unless the empty chair in the White House finds a new occupant in November, we’re headed down a very dangerous path.

Taking a break from Twitter until the election. Need to focus on finishing a draft of my novel. Will miss you guys. Register to vote!

— Terry McMillan (@MsTerryMcMillan) September 19, 2012

That’s the smartest thing she’s said so far. Register to vote. Remember in November.
