So I had a revelation today, I was watching Donald Trump talking about President Obama’s ‘fake’ birth certificate and I thought, “Wow. In 2011, it’s now ‘hip’ & ‘cool’ to be a racist & a bigot.” – And we have Republicans to thank for that.
I think the very beginning of this epidemic started with Sarah Palin during the 2008 Presidential election. The moment she spewed the words ‘palling around with terrorists,’ she gave a free pass for all racists in this country to rear their ugly heads and come out from the depths of hell and proudly claim … Oh wait, they don’t claim to be racist, they just attend a rally carrying a sign that says, ‘Go back to Africa.’ But no, no, that’s not racist at all.
I don’t ever recall, in my 37 years of existence, so many prominent politicians/pundits being so overtly and proudly racist. Then claim not to be racist.
Rush Limbaugh: We can start with the BIGGEST racist of all, and never admitting he is a racist, Here are some of his gems.
“We need segregated buses… This is Obama’s America.” – What did you mean by this Rush? And I mean your ‘spin’ answer. We ALL know what you meant. But even a comment this brazenly racist will never be admitted to be racist by you. Coward.
“Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.” – In my humble opinion, I think Rush was proud when he thought this up. Like he thought he was so clever to be the one to come up with this gem.
By the way, just Google ‘Rush Limbaugh’s racist comments’ and these are just a couple out of hundreds of racial, hateful, bigoted comments. Limbaugh isn’t only a racist, he’s a pathological liar. But that’s another blog.
Newt Gingrich: This cheating loser has been spewing some amazing racists comments since he’s considering running for President. He’s obviously pandering to the Tea Party. Who wants a President who’s been ‘palling around with Tea Baggers?’ The biggest racist venom that he said was this:
“Our President is trapped in his father’s time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost”
Really Newt? You think the President of the United States is having a Séance every night to ‘contact’ his dead father? That statement, Newt, IS very racist, and actually, it’s quite possibly THE DUMBEST thing I’ve ever heard come out of someone’s mouth. What’s worse than you? The dumb Americans who actually buy & eat up the lies and venom you are telling them.
YOU are a guy who cheated on TWO wives. One was battling cancer. Yeah, that’s the kind of guy YOU are. YOU cheat on your cancer stricken wife. THAT’S YOU. YOU handed your first wife divorce papers in the hospital, while she was battling cancer. And YOU told your second wife you were leaving her the day she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. So when this third one is in need of some help from her husband, I’m sure she can look forward to you leaving her too. Because that’s what YOU do, Newt. You bail. You bailed on TWO wives who needed their husband when they were sick. And you LEFT. So much for ‘in sickness & in health.’ – right Newt? Maybe you should hold a Séance & try to contact Jesus & ask him how you should live the rest of your life. Because you have NO integrity. You don’t know the meaning of dignity. And you, like Rush, are a LIAR.
Peter King: This tool, is just as important as the scum on the bottom of my shoe. He is convening meetings to talk about Muslims in this country. MY country. America. Evidentially, these racists think that America is ONLY a Christian country. Everyone else is NOT allowed the freedom to practice their own religion. Except, FREEDOM OF RELIGION is part of the FIRST Amendment. These Republicans tend to think the only Amendment that matters is the Second one. Freedom of Religion was added to the Constitution by these same fore fathers these racists want you to believe were the greatest Americans ever. I’ll repeat, Peter King: THE FORE FATHERS ARE THE ONES WHO PUT FREEDOM OF RELIGION IN THE CONSTITUTION.
Do you understand that? Should I dumb it down more for you? And where were YOU the years Obama WASN’T President? You didn’t seem to care about Muslims the years Bush was America’s dictator? It’s a big coincidence that you now have concerns for America being attacked by Muslims living here, NOW that we have a black President. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what you’re doing.
Peter King’s unbelievable Xenophobia seems to be contagious. This whole fake anti-Muslim movement should have been put to bed with three little words. FREEDOM OF RELIGION. Here is a site listing all of his racist remarks about Islam.
Does anyone see a pattern emerging here? Seems like the ones causing all the problems are old white guys. Old white guys who want to control a woman’s reproductive system. Old white guys spewing all this racist venom the past two years. These Republicans/Tea Baggers have made it ok to be overtly racist. Yet, nobody owns their racism. In fact, the biggest response is this: If you’re against President Obama, Dems call you a racist. Well, no, that’s not true. That’s the excuse the Tea Baggers are using to quantify their racist statements and many racist signs at their rallies.
Tom Tancredo at a Tea Party Convention last year, told the Tea Baggers that “people who could not even spell the word ‘vote’, or say it in English, put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House.”
“His name,” Tancredo said, “is Barack Hussein Obama.”
This is racist, Mr. Tancredo. IT IS. And how anyone can come out and say it’s not is beyond stupid. Another thing I’ve notice, and this is just kind of food for thought. Common sense … if you have to start a sentence with, “I’m not a racist, but …” YOU ARE A RACIST. Someone who is not a racist would never say anything that would require that disclaimer. I’ve seen that phrase used quite a bit within the last two years. Maybe I’m just naive. Period. Remember some old white guy (of course) going to a Palin rally with a Curious George Monkey with an Obama bumper sticker wrapped around its head? That old guy was so proud of what he did. And nobody at that rally had the sense to ask him, “Why?”
Like seriously, “Why the monkey? Would you like to share something with the rest of the class?” All of us know exactly what you mean by it, why don’t you just share it out loud? Don’t be ashamed. Be proud to be a racist. Be proud to hate non-white people, Own your hatred. At least we know you’re out there and can be spotted a mile away.
I think what is amazing, is how unbelievably stupid these racists are. And the closeted racists. i.e. The Tea Baggers. I mean there are actual human beings out there who really thought/think President Obama wants to turn white people into slaves. I don’t even want to elaborate on that because it might be the most ridicules thing I have ever typed. I had a chiropractor two years ago who seriously thought that Obama was going to seize all American’s guns. Another person thought that Obama was going to ban fishing. Do you people even read these words? Do you say them out loud before you believe it?
FYI: We Want Our Country Back is code for We Want Our Country Back from the Black Guy
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again … IF YOU’RE A BIRTHER, YOU’RE A RACIST. There is NO reason at all to believe President Obama is anything other than American & Christian. When the FACTS are presented to Republicans/Tea Baggers, they are simply ignored. This isn’t even about President Obama’s policies. It’s about President Obama’s skin color. Plain & simple. And all of you Republican politicians/pundits who are too cowardly to actually say, “The President IS American”, you’re just as guilty. You’re pandering to a new Republican base consisting of racists & bigots. I hope you’re proud of yourselves.
Ladies & Gentleman: The new Republican Base: Enjoy!
