The movement to stir up fears about and discredit Barack Obama - - accelerated by interlocking claims that he's foreign-born, a Muslim, or an anti-American Socialist/Marxist/Communist or worse - - are race-based, as this Tea Party video makes abundantly clear.
How zany, how destructive is this fear-mongering bunch?
On Wednesday night, the far-right talk show host Michael Savage on Milwaukee's WTMJ AM 620 compared Obama to Pol Pot.
Savage has been denouncing Obama for sometime, and in recent weeks has been urging Donald Trump - - an admitted Tea Party enthusiast - - to run for President and has given him air time to push the birther position.
The President of the Harvard University Law School Review must have faked his way in, like he faked his way into the US Senate and the Presidency.
Remember when Trump was bragging about his relationship with "the blacks?"
Who talks like that?
Who thinks like that?
Besides Trump...this guy. [That Tea Party's self-described "Huckleberry" whose video was linked in the opening paragraph of this posting.]
And a tip of the hat to CBS's Bob Schieffer, who told it like it is.
