Protesters who gathered outside Desert Vista High School during the president’s speech in Arizona yesterday apparently didn’t get the memo from the Supreme Court that racism is over.
Obama foes at one point sang, “Bye Bye Black Sheep,” a derogatory reference to the president’s skin color, while protesters like Deanne Bartram raised a sign saying, “Impeach the Half-White Muslim!” [...]
Deanna Bartram, a 17-year-old University of Arizona student from Black Canyon City, lashed out at people who call her racist for not supporting Obama. She believes Obama supporters use the “race card” against her because they disagree with her political message.
“Obama is ruining American values. He is ruining the Constitution. He needs to go back to where he came from because obviously, he is a liar,” she said. “I am not racist. I am part Indian. Obama’s half Black, half White.”
“He’s 47 percent Negro,” shouted Ron Enderle, a 77-year-old Chandler resident who said that he and his son served as Marines and his grandson is currently serving in the Marines. [...]
Judy Burris said that she blames Obama for racism in America reaching heights not seen since the 1960s Civil-Rights Era.
“We have gone back so many years,” she said. “He’s divided all the races. I hate him for that.”
He needs to go back to where he came from, because obviously he’s from Kenya.
But I’m not racist.
There’s no end in sight. And if there comes a time when President Obama and Hillary Clinton share a stage on the campaign trail, fasten your seat-belts. The racism and misogyny will be brutal.
