Via Breitbart, State Sen. Louise Lucas, part of President Obama’s “Truth Team” and an official member of the campaign was on the John Fredericks Morning Show and said:
What I am saying to you is Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to a segment of the population, who does not like to see people other than a White man in a White House or any other elected position.
Let’s be real clear about it… let’s be real clear Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like Barack Obama in any elected or leadership position. We know what’s going on here and some people may be afraid to say it but I am not. I am not afraid to say it.
He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position. Senator Miller said it before she died and I agreed with her. They don’t want President Barack Obama in office as President and for all the reasons that you and I and a lot of other people understand.
There comes a point where you don’t even know what to say anymore. I’ve written 85 pieces under the “Obama” tag. Virtually all are critical, and most are angry. But they are all reasoned, even if only to a squirrel. At no time have I suggested that skin color has anything to do with my acknowledgement that the President is a miserable failure at uniting Americans, supporting business, igniting the economy, crafting helpful foreign policy, and a lot more. According to these good folks my reasoning is irrelevant, as I am seething with unconscious racist rage and hatred.
- Unemployment rate? Racist!
- Deficit and debt? Racist!
- Arab world in flames? Racist!
- No budget? Racist!
- Spending cuts? Racist!
Are you sensing a theme?
And when I point out that I like Herman Cain and Allen West just fine? “White guilt!” they explain.
And just in case that didn’t wake you up:
That looks like a literal call to kill white people, including innocents. But I’m told not to believe my lying eyes, that this is a mistaken honkey/cracker interpretation, and that my seething unconscious racism taints my narrow white brain without me even knowing it. That, in fact, there’s no reason for concern. The innocent tweets above are simply enthusiastic appeals to all African-Americans to gather together and become more involved in their communities. If I weren’t so pink, I’d understand how simple that is to comprehend, but racism. And racist. So sit down and shut up, cracker.
