With Less Than a Month Left, It's Time for the Right to Go Full-on Racist

Posted by Paul Constant on Mon, Oct 15, 2012 at 1:59 PM

Back in 2008, as Election Day approached, Republican racism really kicked into overdrive. Republicans were calling Obama a Muslim terrorist, they were obsessing over Michelle Obama's nonexistent "whitey" tape, and videos of Republicans spewing crazy racist things became a blogging trend. Thankfully, because we as a nation have grown and had an important conversation about race, that's not going to happen during this election cycle.

HA HA HA just kidding! Over the weekend a Romney rally attendee wearing a "Put the white back in the White House" t-shirt went viral. And this video of Tommy Thompson's son in a meeting of Wisconsin Republicans saying that they have a chance to send Obama "back to Chicago, or Kenya" is another sign that the gloves are coming off.

Thompson has since apologized. So everything is fine! The end.
