Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

Barack Obama gets a pass for being Blah

Just when you think that you have heard it all, along comes something so mind-numbing that it really makes you scratch your head.

In this case, via ThinkProgress,…

David Horowitz,… former “New Leftist,” born-again (in a political, not theological sense) Neocon, speaking at the “Defending the Amercian Dream Summit,” [typo intentional], , asserted that…

No one will say it out loud. I will: It’s because the color of his skin is black.  It is because Obama is a minority that nobody will hold him to a standard or confront him with what he has done.

I guess that means that…

— Rush Limbaugh (“Barack the Magic Negro”),

— Newt Gingrich (“the Food Stamp President”),

— Michele Bachman (“Gangsta Government”),

— Allan West (“There is no race code. It’s a fact, since President Obama has been in office, you’ve seen a 4 to 1 increase in food stamp recipients in the United State of America.”),

— Glen Beck (“This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture….I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people, I’m saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist”)

and others are nobodies.  Actually, Mr. Horowitz might be onto something….


  1. A free pass?? The Republicans have been unrelenting in their racism

    From a comment I posted in a diary about the Missouri rodeo clown showing just how post-racial we are:

    Right. Because there is no racism in America … Chief Justice John Roberts said so just a couple of months ago!!

    By the way, this isn’t racist either:  Protesters Greet Obama’s Motorcade In Orlando With ‘Kenyan Go Home’ Signs

    Ms. Jones is obviously just being sensitive … to reality. From October 2012, a yard display in California (clearly before post-racial America):

    … on the chair are two watermelons, and hanging from it is a noose. Nearby a go-back-to-Kenya sign. […] A neighbor says that the chair and watermelon, etc., is okay but maybe “the noose is a little over the edge.”

    The noose is a little over the edge???

    And don’t forget to give credit to the sponsors of the summit, the Koch brothers:

    This weekend’s conference was funded by Americans for Prosperity and attracted a number of influential conservative activists. Along with Horowitz, several potential Republican contenders in the 2016 presidential election – including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) – also spoke at the event.
