I also love how Republicans (and so-called Libertarians) try to claim that no Republicans have said anything racial regarding Obama. Sure, none of the big nasty words have been used. That would be political suicide. But the subliminal stuff has been used repeatedly. Particular Southern expressions.
Who was that said, "That boy
can't be allowed to have his finger on the button"?
Who was it that referred to Michelle Obama as Obama's "baby mamma", a hugely derogatory term used against black women?
Who was it that keeps referring to Barack as "disrespectful", which in the old south was a term used to describe affluent blacks when they didn't yield the road, or look white folks directly in the eye.
Weren't flyers sent out in New Jersey that stated, "Black Ruled Nations most unstable and violent in the world. The United States of America will be next! Why should we seal our fate by allowing a black ruler to destroy us?" Which party did that come from exactly?
Which congressman was it that said Obama was "uppity" and when told the term was considered derogatory towards Blacks, particularly Souther blacks, and the congressman didn't back down? I can't remember his name. He was definitely a Republican though.
Nope. No signs of race baiting here.
