Obama Plays the (Other) Race Card
Oh my dearsweetjesus; how bizzare and tasteless. Is Obama advancing a new theory of violence against poor Latinos by "bitter people" of the "regular white" kind...?
"A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year. If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it’s not surprising that would happen."
"Why should I drop out before xenophobics can attack to prove my point about immigration?" Obama rhetorically asked -- but only to establish his pro-Latino position.
Well there goes all that talk about unity, change we can believe in and practicing a new kind of politics. Obama's done gone and hurt poor Rushie's feelings in the heat of battle.
Not to worry, though; he only did it to send a big wet kiss to his homies in Puerto Rico, in kumbaya fashion of course.
Now let's wait and see if we ever get to hear a little equal opportunity outrage from the blogosphere and mainstream media after such unequivocally and absolutely provocative remarks, shall we?!? But please, don't do anything stupid while you wait forever...
