Am I the only one that is terrified that we, as a country, are experiencing a whole new wave of vicious racism? I am so tired of people saying we are no longer racist because we have a black president. If anything, the racisim in the United States seems to have reached a fever pitch since President Obama was elected.
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is just more proof of completely unacceptable racism. When talking to Slate, Walsh said:
Why was he elected? Again, it comes back to who he was. He was black, he was historic. And there’s nothing racist about this. It is what it is. If he had been a dynamic, white, state senator elected to Congress he wouldn’t have gotten in the game this fast…They were in love with him because they thought he was a good liberal guy and they were in love with him because he pushed that magical button: a black man who was articulate, liberal, the whole white guilt, all of that.
Really? Really? Did you think of all this on your way back from a Klan meeting? How many white freshman are there in the House right now, you fool! Are you really going to tell us that Rand Paul won his seat in the Senate because of all of his experience? Click here to read the full article.
