Don't let the Right Wing nuts convince you that their hatred of Obama has ANYTHING to do with his policy decisions. Ultimately we know what it has always been about.

This image comes to us courtesy of the Daily Kos.

You know in reality, as has been pointed out numerous times before, Obama is really not THAT progressive. Nor is he especially radical in any demonstrable way.

In fact for many who really thought they were getting a very liberal, anti-war President who was going to prosecute the Bush administration, while doing away with George W's devastating tax cuts for the wealthy, he has been somewhat of a disappointment. Really more of a moderate than a liberal.

Essentially the ONE thing that set him apart from every President who came before him, is the color of his skin. Period.

So you can waste your time listening to a million rationalizations, or justifications for the anti-Obama sentiment among certain people in this country if you so desire, but ultimately it always comes down to this.

    I agree. I don't understand why everyone's so afraid to call it what it is: Republicans are racist bullies who can't stand the fact that a black person is our President. The only reason they don't like him is because his father was a black man. They better get used to it though: President Obama WILL be re-elected and WILL be our President until 2016. And there's nothing they can do about it except whine like petulant children. Pathetic.

    The poor GOP, outed once more as a bunch of assbackwards racists. But with each generation, with more and more biracial relationships and marriages, there are less of them. It may not be happening fast enough, but it is happening...the racists are slowly dying out, just like the GOP. GOP decided to embrace the racists and it will ultimately lead to their end too.

  9. They tried to deflect their racism by whining about people using the "race card" when in fact their racism deserves more than a "card." A whole fucking star war ship full.

    They think they are so clever with their derogatory little sound bites and racist little pics depicting President Obama in tons of juvenile settings.

    Ok we get it y'all are some inbred, racist dicwads. We know already.

    Frankly I haven't seen or read this much idiotic juvenile bullshit from white folks since I read "Little Black Sambo" and saw "Birth of a Nation."

    It's RACISM but these retarded repugbaggers are too chicken shit to admit the obvious.

    These people don't believe African-Americans/Black/People of Color are on par with their inbred asses. It's white supremacy all the way. They love slavery, jim crow, racism, segregation and all the violence that comes/came along with it.

    This makes me ashamed of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA

    Yup: all that feverish talk about contraception, abortion, and gay rights is just Southern Strategy.

    Like Anon7:11, I wonder how the people who see this respond to it. I find it shocking. But I think that's the appeal of the "energizing the base" strategy. It allows those who have secretly harbored these putrid views to express them openly for a change.

    It's up to the rest of us to make short work of this if/when we contact it.

    (I remember this same issue re women's rights, until I gave up. I mean the observable hidden hostility, even when it was not okay to express it.)

  15. It has ALWAYS been about race. They have been dumping on President Obama since the day that he was elected, and before any of his policies was even put on an agenda.
    They keep saying that he is destroying the Country yet, they can never specify how. He campaigned on HCR, and he won...by a lot. IF most Americans were against it, he would not have won. And really, how can they be so stupid as to be against fellow Americans getting health insurance?
    They blame the President for the bad economy, like he inherited one that was doing so well.
    These republican clowns are just plain bigots, and they don't hide under their hooded white sheets anymore.

    Dear Driver,
    Thanks for totally negating years and years of progress.

  21. I just had a conversation with an avowed Republican woman on Facebook and I expressed my concern over the rhetoric coming from the likes of Santorum and his extreme right wing agenda. I thought that she, being a woman, would be as concerned as I over the assault on women's productive rights. She was not. In fact, she got defensive about it.

    And then, I saw the picture of that offensive, racist sticker and now I'm kinda sick about the attitude of some people. I know it's out there, but I'd like to think that there are more critical thinkers out there than racist, misogynistic knuckle draggers.

    I'm sure glad that I'm a liberal.

  23. Anonymous9:13 AM

    Santorum is once again feeding these fires as Palin once did (and still does on the rare occasion anyone wants to hear her speak).

    He and Gingrich are both piling upon the President this morning regarding "religion." Might buy that Santorum is a religious zealot, incapable of subtle thought, but Gingrich is simply a racist. That Santorum might be a racist is certainly an issue I would embrace. He is that stupid.

    All the GOP seems to want is silence both women and people of color - sending them all back into the shadows.

    That people are being so blatant in their hate I place the fault squarely at Sister Sarah's feet. She revived the right's sense of entitlement to hate.

    Why isn't anyone in the GOP standing up and saying this kind of stuff is wrong?

    I am a frequent user and supporter of Paypal. I was shocked when I looked at the merchandise being offered for sale through Paypal on http://www.stumpysstickers.com/

However, I am sad that Paypal has given a means for these unevolved souls to profit from their ignorance. I hope that Paypal will reconsider supporting this atrocious website.

    They said this race would get horrible and it is already. Between Santorum and the son of Billy Graham - my blood pressure is up there today.

    Santorum will never be elected president nationwide IF he wins the normination for the Republicans (doubt he will really). His stands on religion, President Obama and intruding in women's rights absolutely take the cake. He obviously is very out of touch w/Americans across the nation.

    And then we have the younger Rev Franklin Graham (who has close connections w/Sarah Palin's - are we surprised?)come out today and question President Obama being being a christian and even suggested he could be a Muslim and stated that President Obama is thought of as the 'son of Islam'! But, he thinks Gingrich is a christian and showed he didn't think much of Romney's Mormonism.

    Does he not know that President Obama met w/his father at his home where Rev Billy Graham gave President Obama his blessing? The son is nothing like his father, but we already knew that!

    I can hardly wait to see with this group is going to do when President Obama is reelected in a landslide!

It makes me sick and has made me really question the people that I have called 'friends' for the past thirty plus years.

    Jim Crow may be coming soon to a state near you

    The rise of the Tea Party seems to have subsided in American politics as an electoral force, but the central sentiment from which it rose - racism - seems to be have new life breathed into it by the 2010 elections that put rabid right wing radicals in charge of state houses. There is now a real possibility that between the Teabaggers running the states and the appointments to the federal courts stacked by conservatives from Reagan to Bush Jr., the Voting Rights Act is under assault.

    Rick Santorum's dog whistle: Obama's "radical Islamic policies"

    Sure that was a gaffe...

    Rick Santorum’s spokeswoman Alice Stewart said in a TV interview on Monday that Santorum was referring to President Barack Obama’s “radical Islamic policies” when he said the president’s agenda was driven by “phony theology” — but then quickly called up MSNBC after the segment aired to say she misspoke.

    “There is a type of theological secularism when it comes to the global warmists in this country. That’s what he was referring to. He was referring to the president’s policies in terms of the radical Islamic policies the president has,” Stewart said on “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

    This is not a misspeak. This is a dog whistle. This is a dog whistle telling the Republican primary voters and wingnut candidates for various offices that it was time to start running on the racist and Islamophobic theme that President Obama is a black (Kenyan) Muslim.

    It HAS been mainly about race. If they haven't been exchanging blatantly racist e-mails among themselves, they have called him a socialist, a Marxist, a Commie, a Muslim, and a whole bunch of other mutually contradictory things. Some macho idiots have even called him gay. All of this is intended to convey that to them, he is not
    "one of us." It only underscores their bitterness, anger, and disbelief that McCain-Palin were soundly rejected in 2008, as they should have been. I shudder to think what this country would have been like with them at the helm.
    These same fools were willing to put up with a hot-headed, impulsive old man like Mcain and a clueless, hateful idiot like Palin just because they are white.

  46. Ok I called budweiser by phone (1.800.342.5283) and spoke to Treavor about this mess. He said he would pass it on. I told him there will be a countdown clock on when they decide to get in touch with this nut and make him take down the budweiser stuff. I told the rep it has nothing to do with them unless they refuse to ask the nut to cease and desist.

    You can tell from the enlarged detail insert pic that the sticker is taped to the inside of the window -- presumably so no one tears it off as would be possible if it were stuck to the outside of the window (or they just don't want the sticker there when they return the SUV for a newer model).

    I liked the superglue suggestion, and the "paste Obama stickers over it." I really like the idea of getting this to go viral. Contacting the credit-card companies is good, too.

    But the awful thing is that after Pres Obama wins the election, we will still have to live with/work with these disaffected people. Much of the criticism of the President has come from his trying to include, compromise as needed, get what we can, and move forward. And yet, we have to go with what we have. Which is a big problem. But no one better to address it than our talented President.

    Not surprising that people don't want to discuss economy, global warming, wars: too hard, too complicated. Let's just call each other bad names.

    However, don't discount the power of these racists: between dirty tricks and voter fraud, they are are going to do all they can.

    Remember Denial runs deep in the GOP. They deny woman the right to make their own medical decisions, they deny people the right to marry whom they choose, they deny people the right to sleep with who they choose, and in the manner in which they choose to do so. They deny that industry/business needs regulation. They deny that there is global climate change. They deny peak oil. They deny evolution. They deny everyone's religion, but their "own" as being "correct".

    They deny their own actions when they are caught in direct conflict with what they preach so vociferously. So of course, they will deny that their actions towards President Obama are racist and radical. And they will believe every word out of their own mouths.

    Yes, we all know that Denial, or shall we say, a lack of self-reflection and realization, is a common character trait for most of the hard line conservative Republicans.

    But that doesn't mean we can't call them on it for each and every instance it occurs.

    I have to share this. My grandparents were lifelong Republicans until George W. Bush ran for POTUS. Neither of them voted for him the first time he ran or for his re-election. They also voted for Obama and have stated they will vote for him again. Their reasoning? They don't like what the Republican party has become and refuse to be associated with 'people like that'. They also believe the Republicans are actively turning into Christian racists who want to turn back the clock on the US (and my grandparents are a very religious traditional couple).
