Mitt Romney’s Racist Comment–Facist Base Of GOP Applauds
It was one of the most disgusting lines thrown out by Mitt Romney this entire campaign season. Trust me, I have watched this election cycle day in-and day out for over a year. What Mitt Romney said in Michigan crosses the line by three miles in every direction.
It was racist.
It was mean-spirited.
It was needless.
”I love being home, in this place where Ann and I were raised — where both of us were born. Ann was born at Henry Ford Hospital. I was born at Harper Hospital. No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate — they know [laughter] that this is the place [swelling laughter and applause] that we were born and raised.”
What is wrong with the Republican presidential candidate that he thinks such a statement is required to instill some excitement among the base of the party? What is wrong with the Republican Party that they have such low-brow members, that after such a statement is made they applaud? We know the Republican Party is becoming more fascist as the years go by, but here in broad daylight with no reason whatsoever to make such a racist statement, Romney opens up and smiles about it.
I have stated over and over that racism drives much of the anti-President Obama message over these past four years. The Tea Party–teabaggers–are racist through and through, and have no way to handle the fact there is a black man making decisions for the nation in the Oval Office. It is embarrassing for the nation to have Romney and his uneducated party members making asses of themselves in public.
The Mormon Church has never been friendly, or open-minded, to blacks, and the uneducated boobs in the Tea Party are not able to understand how they are being used in election cycles by the Republican Party.
This whole group of conservative mis-fits and nit-wits must be soundly defeated come Election Day!
Later Romney was asked by Scott Pelley, anchor and managing editor of the “CBS Evening News,” what in hell was going on.
PELLEY: “Why did you say that?”
ROMNEY: “We’re in Michigan – Ann and I both born in Detroit. And, of course, a little humor always goes a long way. So, it was great to be home – to be in a place where Ann and I had grown up, and the crowd loved it and got a good laugh.”
PELLEY: “But this was a swipe at the president, and I wonder why you took it.”
ROMNEY: “No, no – not a swipe. I’ve said throughout the campaign, and before: There’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor – you know, we gotta have a little humor in a campaign, as well.”
PELLEY: “You threw a little red meat at the conservative wing of the party, there.”
ROMNEY: “No, this was all about being home in Michigan, the place we were born and raised.”
PELLEY: “But once and for all, for the record, you believe that Barack Obama is the legitimate president of the United States.”
ROMNEY, with strained smile: “I’ve said that probably 30 times by now … 31 certainly won’t hurt.”
