These neanderthals have been carrying their anger around since the 1964 civil rights legislation was passed. Finally God has given them the right to display their posteriors for all the world to see and it's not a pretty view.
These classless and un-Christian imbeciles, these ignorant hoodlums, have altered images of the president to look like an African witch doctor and his wife to look like a gorilla. Charming. Their comments have been subtle, they have been crude and behind everyone of them is racism, pure and simple.
Presidents have always been fair game for cartoonists and the target of jokes on late night TV but these images and slurs are anything but funny. They represent hate, and worse, it's based on race and the color of a person's skin.
TeaParty.org, a Houston-based group founded by Dale Robertson, yesterday sent an email fund-raising solicitation, obtained by TPMmuckraker, headlined "Obama Pimping Obama-Care, One Last Time!
The photograph (to the right) -- showing the president as a stereotypical African-American pimp, sporting a pencil-thin mustache and a zebra-striped, fur-brimmed fedora, complete with a feather -- illustrated the theme.
ABC's Sarah Netter has compiled a review of racism over the past year as it pertains to President Obama.
Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader: Before the election, Reid described Obama as a "light-skinned African American, with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
Rod Blagojevich, former Illinois Governor: "I'm blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.
Mike Parry, Minnesota State Senator: Twittered, "My opinion is that our president is arrogant and angry. The fact is that he is a black man."
Bill Clinton, Former President: Reportedly told the late Sen. Ted Kennedy of Obama, "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee."
Russ Wiseman: Arlington, Tenn., Mayor: Lashed out at the president on his Facebook page for being a "Muslim president."
Lynn Jenkins, Rep. R-Kan.: "Republicans are struggling right now to find the great white hope."
De. David McKalip, Fla. neurosurgeon and health care reform opponent: sent out an email containing an image of Obama as an African with doctor.
Gary Frago, Atwater, Calif., Councilman: Sent several racist e-mails, including a comparison between Obama and O.J. Simpson and a crack about Michelle Obama posing in National Geographic.
Rusty DePass, S.C. GOP activist: Responding to a Facebook post about an escaped gorilla from the Columbia zoo, he wrote, "I'm sure it's just one of Michelle's ancestors."
Sherri Goforth, Tenn. State GOP Staffer: Forwarded an e-mail image of presidential portraits with the one of Obama appearing only as a set of white eyes on a black background.
Mike Green, S.C. GOP activist: Tweeted, "I just heard Obama was going to impose a 40% tax on aspirin because it's white and it works."
Rush Limbaugh: Obama was "behaving like an African colonial despot." He also called Obama "an angry black guy." During the campaign, Limbaugh was flamed for playing "Barack, the Magic Negro" to the tune of "Puff the Magic Dragon" on his show.
Diann Jones, Texas GOP Leader: Forwarded an e-mail to local Republican clubs calling a state-sponsored firearm tax "another terrific idea from the black house and its minions."
Sean Delonas, Cartoonist who depicted two policemen, one with a gun, standing over a dead chimpanzee with the words, "They'll have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill."
Buck Burnette, Texas Longhorn Lineman: Posted on Facebook, "All the hunters gather up, we have a #$%&er in the whitehouse."
Chaffey (Calif) Community Republican Women, Federated: published a newsletter with an image of "Obama Bucks" - food stamps with Obama's head on a donkey surrounded by fried chicken, watermelon and ribs.
David Storck, former Fla. GOP Leader: Forwarded an e-mail written by a volunteer that said, "I see carloads of black Obama supporters coming from the inner city to cast their votes for Obama. This is their chance to get a black president and they seem to care little that he is at minimum, socialist, and probably Marxist in his core beliefs. After all, he is black - no experience or accomplishments - but he is black."
Geoff Davis, U.S. Rep, R-Ky: "That boy's finger does not need to be on the button."
Geraldine Ferraro, former Democratic vice presidential candidate, commented while working for Hillary Clinton's presidential run, "Obama's candidacy wouldn't have been so successful if he weren't black."
SPECIAL NOTE: Huge kudos to ABC News writer Sarah Netter. In an era when research is anathema to most reporters, she deserves a bucket full of praise. As a former news librarian and sometimes writer, I appreciate the time it took to research, compile and write this article. Printed out this is an 11 page article - with a generous amount of white space. Not only does Netter provide dates and background, she also does, or tries to do, a brief followup on each incident - apologies, non-apologies, evasions, excuses, etc..
