Getting Crazier

Newsmax runs an article advocating a military coup against the duly-elected President of the United States.  No, seriously.  Like the late unlamented Jesse Helms before him, John Perry insults every man and woman who wears or has ever worn the uniform of the US Armed Forces.  Repulsive.

Meanwhile, Cong. Trent Franks (R-Crazytown) declares the president an “enemy of humanity,” which I suppose is a step-up from being merely the Anti-Christ and Glenn Beck and his flock continue to push the bizarre “Obama hates white people” meme.

Everything Old is New Again

Glenn Greenwald agrees with me that the Right Wing Howler Monkey Media Chorus attacks on Obama’s legitimacy have less to do with race and more to do with their refusal to admit that anyone but themselves are fit to rule.  We went through exactly the same sort of paranoid, delusional idiocy while Bill Clinton was president.  Certainly, there is a racist element out there that despises Obama for daring to be a black man in power, but I feel certain there are more people who hate him for being a Democrat than there are those who hate him for being black.
