When I first thought about writing this story this morning, I wasn’t too sure about it. I have talked to many TEApubs who’ve told me that the President is a racist that hates all of us white folks, but it was hard for me to believe a public official would say something so asinine openly. Then I ran a search on the terms “Obama hates white people” and I couldn’t believe how many hits came up! It seems that not only does the extreme right believe this garbage, they they aren’t shy whatsoever when it comes to expressing it.
According to The Portland Press Herald, last week Governor Paul LePage of Maine spoke at a fund raiser and “meet and greet” for the Governor, his wife and Rick Bennett the new party chairman, saying that he believes that the President might have been one of the best ever had he chosen to highlight his bi-racial heritage. He went on to say that he thought he hadn’t done that because he, “hates white people…”
If this was an isolated incident, it may have been laughable — but it is not. This is a theme that consistently runs throughout the dogma of the extreme right.
Back in July of 2009, Glenn Beck said on Fox and Friends, “I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people. He has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.” If that is not saying that he doesn’t like white people what the hell is it saying? To his credit, Brian Kilmeade did point out to Beck that most of the people who work for the President are white.
Here is TEAvangelical nutcase Bryan Fisher claiming that President Obama learned to hate the white man and America from Jeramiah Wright.
And here, Topconservativenews.com makes a feeble attempt to tie him to the radical guy in the video below. Don’t ask me how they make the connection — it is beyond my ability to comprehend the thinking(?) of these Neanderthals.
There’s no shortage of examples which illustrate how often the right tries to make the President out to be a racist who hates all white people and would subjugate us to the black men who they seem to think he sees as our superiors. Not a one of them ever explains why he doesn’t hate the white mother and grandparents who raised him, or perhaps they think that he does hate them — after all, logic is not a strong point with these guys.
