Hey Newt? You’ve got some racism in your eye.
The GOP is catering to the lowest common denominator. It boggles my mind that we are still talking about whether or not Obama is a citizen, and whether or not he hates white people, and whether or not he’s the devil reincarnate. The right complains that “libruls” are quick to race-bait; the right doesn’t like to be painted with the racist brush.
Well, maybe the right needs to tell Newt “Contract with America” Gingrich to shut his sconehole because this shit is offensive, it is absurd, and considering the number of American citizens who come from countries that have been historically raped and pillaged by colonialists, it’s a really fucking dumb political strategy:
Gingrich says that D’Souza has made a “stunning insight” into Obama’s behavior — the “most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama.”
“What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”1
“This is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president,” Gingrich tells us.
“I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating — none of which was true,” Gingrich continues. “In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.”
Really? Obama is out of touch with how the world works? A guy who went to Harvard Law, studied the Constitution, taught constitutional law, was a community organizer who championed the rights of the poor and voiceless, is out of touch with how the world works? Meanwhile Newt and other members of the Asshat Brigade are trying to sell the American people on the idea that if we extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, somehow that’s going to create jobs and reduce the deficit (when economists on both sides of the aisle are citing evidence that the richy riches don’t spend tax cut savings (thus stimulating the economy) but rather add it to their pile of money. And, the Asshat Brigade keeps spewing this nonsense even though Americans just aren’t buying it.
Come the fuck on, people.
If you want to read the D’Souza’s article, you can find it here. Be prepared for a brain explosion or two. It’s the most ridiculous shit I’ve ever read. Here are some snippets:
