What Fresh Hell Is This?

The Rancid Racism of Donald Trump

While Donald Trump was crowing that he is somehow the winner (in being proved wrong?), he couldn't help but let out more racist dog-whistles and code:
The Donald wants to know how it could be possible that President Obama went to Harvard. [How could a black man go to Harvard?! Must be affirmative action!]

The Donald tells President Obama to "get off his basketball court." [Forty years ago, he would have demanded that Obama "put down the watermelon."]
Donald, it's a wonder that that thing on your head doesn't scurry away in embarrassment.

No other president has ever had to prove that he was an American. The birthers will never be satisfied by anything like facts because they can't stand that someone named Barack Hussein Obama, who looks like Barack Hussein Obama is president.

Oh dear. You do know that pointing out racism is much, much worse than racism itself, yes?

Actually, how did Obama get into Columbia? It is supposed to be more difficult to transfer than to get in initially. And I believe Obama has admitted in his biography(ies) that he used drugs in high school and at Occidental.

But ... whatever. He did get in, and apparently did well at Columbia, well enough to convince Harvard Law to let him in.

Maybe he convinced Columbia that he needed to get an ivy league education so he could be elected President so he could preserve the tax cuts for the wealthy enacted by a previous President.

He strikes me as the kind of guy who would do okay during the interview portion of the applications process.

"Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Harry Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, blasted President Obama's anti-business administration in an explosive interview. Alford, a 2008 Obama supporter, labeled the administration "Marxist" and "fanatical." "They might as well put on the brown shirts and swastikas," he said." Just another racist out there!!!

Well, rich, I listened to the interview, and Alford admitted to voting for Bush twice. Not a Democrat to begin with. Alford apparently has an axe to grind with the current Department of Education on their cutting funding for financial aid grants to technical institutes and other professional type programs, which Alford says would significantly affect African Americans. I thought you conservative types were against giving handouts to poor people. Certainly you want to destroy public schools by slashing teacher salaries, removing their health benefits and cancelling their retirement programs, so that the wealthiest 1 percent can pay less taxes. Meanwhile, Alford made the brownshirt and swastika remarks in response to Ingraham's remarks about Michelle Obama leading the charge to restrict advertising unhealthy snacks to kids in school. so we have gone from Nazis being the people who committed genocide to Nazis being the people who restrict advertising.

But you're right, if you can find one black person who criticizes Obama, then any white person can say anything they want to, and can't be held accountable for it. Why not just skip the middle man and lynch Obama now?
