Bryhn, I might be so "blind" that I fail to see how referring to the president as a "lyin' African" doesn't cross that racist threshold. Furthermore, I can't quite connect the repeated "President of Kenya" references with any specific policy disagreement. |
From the "Obama Waffles" to the "Black House" jokes: The right has shown a new (old) level of classiness. Any time y'all want to expand that tent, the 21st Century is waiting.
Oh, O.K., how silly of me. You are so right. That confirms it, you have convinced me that the majority of these people disagree simply because he is black. I guess I'm racist, too, because I agree with the majority of the town hall protestors. I am against a public option/single pay system, I am against deficit spending into the trillions, I am against abandoning ground missile defense in Poland, I am against prosecuting the CIA, etc. I am against so many things that he wants to do. This administration is proposing some of the biggest changes this country has ever seen, so it is quite possible that this many people could be upset simply because they disagree with those changes.
I am sure there are those that have issue with his color more than any other reason, but I am confident it is not the majority. To paint that kind of label with such a broad stroke is shallow.
I will not be concerned with criticizing the president in fear that I will be labeled a racist nor should anyone else.
