More Conservatives Think President Obama Is A Muslim–Racism At Play
I really have to laugh at these findings. Be mindful conservatives thought Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. We know how that turned out. Also be mindful that it was conservatives who told the lie about WMD’s over and over in hopes of making it ‘a truth’. The same has been done for years regarding the president’s religion.
The increase in voters who think the president is Muslim is more pronounced among registered Republicans, especially conservative Republicans. In 2008, among both conservative Republicans and Republicans overall, 16 percent said Mr. Obama was Muslim. Now, 30 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of conservative Republicans think he is Muslim.
Over and over there is just more and more proof of the racist attitude that conservatives harbor when it comes to President Obama. No one can convincingly say that these conservatives would feel the same about a white man. This has nothing to do with religion, but everything to do with the fact a black man was elected to the Oval Office, and conservatives can not get over that fact.
The problem for conservatives is that unlike having games expunged from the record like that which happened under Joe Paterno there will be no walking back American history. Barack Obama will always be the first black man elected president.
It drives these right-wing white men nuts that a black man sits in the White House and governs them. That is why there is a continuing charge leveled about the president’s religion. It is just one way to undermine a black president.
What tops this whole crazed story off is that so many of the conservatives cling to their Constitution and claim to care what it means. That is bunk!
If one reads the Constitution, and takes note of what it stands for, will soon discover that a person’s religion should not matter when it comes to governing this nation. There would be nothing wrong with an Islamic president of the United States.
I suggest if Obama were white and Muslim there would be less of a problem.
That Obama is Christian but black remains the problem for conservatives.
