Full story: KLAS-TV Las Vegas

Shortly after President Barack Obama declared himself an American-born citizen with papers to prove it, Baratunde Thurston declared himself a disgusted black man.

Old time racists will dig and dig until they find something to discredit a minority. They will check the MD's credentials before allowing him to perform surgery or research the degree of a college Professor. None of this would be done to a white person holding the same position. In the end they show themselves as fools. Obama will benefit from this as he slides into a second term unopposed.

Educated people see this blatant racism and hate mongering for what it is, racism. The right wing leads their uneducated teabagging base into hate for anyone that doesn't look or think like them. They hate all minorities from different ethnic groups, gays, women, liberals, non-theists, the Jews, Catholics, union workers, immigrants,...... Does this sound familiar to anyone?? They even hate the intellectuals as they are proudly anti-intellectual. The Repuglican party does not want anyone smart enough to talk back to them and their un-American activities. If you're not angry at them, you're not paying attention. Or you are buying the lies that they're are telling you.

Apparently, anyone who doesn't like Obama personally or politically or doesn't like his actions or his ideas or his character or anything else about him is a racist.

Does that make this guy a racist to?

This guy must be pretty educated and doesn't like what Obama's doing, so he must be a racist. This guy called Obama a Marxist, so he must be a racist. This guy compared Obama to the Nazis, so he must be a racist.

Oh wait I forgot. Only white people can be racist, so this guy just really just doesn't like Obama personally or politically or doesn't like his actions or his ideas or his character or anything else about him isn't a racist. Idiots.

This is part of the liberal approach. If you can't defend your positions, just demonize your opponent.

Seems weak and rather childish, doesn't it?
