Mitt Romney Stops Using Racist Dog Whistle, Uses Racist Megaphone Insteadon July 25, 2012 at 12:28 pm
That Obama just doesn’t understand us white folk!
It’s not even August yet and Romney has abandoned the (not so) subtle insinuation that President Obama is a “foreigner.” That’s great! Or at least it would be if Mittens’ campaign advisors hadn’t decided to go for the blatant accusation that Obama doesn’t understand what it means to be “Anglo-Saxon.”
We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”
Hmmm…Anglo-Saxon? As in “White Anglo-Saxon Protestant?”
Now, for all you conservatives that are about to whine that I’m overreacting or “why do you liberals always have to play the race card?” may I remind you that conservatives have taken great pains to demonize liberals for “wanting to be European socialists” or turning America into a “European style dictatorship?” Now we’re supposed to believe that Mitt Romney is suddenly embracing our shared history with Europe?
Riiiiiight…makes total sense.
