It is certainly ugly out there. Montana's Chief Supreme Court Justice, U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull, is retiring after having been found sending racist emails denigrating our President.
I was looking around the web this morning and found this, the Media Research Center Director of Media Analysis' Tim Graham wants to know why the liberal media haven't talked about the white girlfriends Obama once used to date when he was in his twenties, as if that means anything, the laws of mixed race dating and miscegenation long having been ruled illegal.
Graham made news again recently when he called out new MSNBC host Karen Finney for not being quite black enough.
The second most senior representative in the House, Don Young, talked last week about the "wetbacks" on the family farm of his youth in California.
Google did a graphic the other day celebrating the late farmworker rights advocate Cesar Chavez. It set of a firestorm of nasty tweets from people like Glen Beck and Dana Perino and this beauty from a historically confused sort, who mixed him up with the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
Rush Limbaugh blames one person for all this racism. Three guesses?
Rush Limbaugh took the criticism further on his Monday radio show, responding to a caller by complaining that that “it may well be the case” that the president “inspires racism” in people and claiming that Obama “is indeed a racist and he promotes racist behavior whenever he can.”Call me an old fashioned romantic. I kind of long for the days when we all attempted to live together and tried to put the racial crap aside. Hope that we can get away from this stuff.
