Barack Hussein Obama is an Arab. Except when he’s a black man. Also he’s a scary terrorist. Except when he’s a white flag waving wimp.

The Chicago Tribune is picking up on what the rest of have known for a while now: The guy who originated the ‘Obama is a Muslim’ rumor is an anti-semite nutjob. Of course, this doesn’t stop the demented conservative base from embracing everything this lunatic says as gospel. It is no small irony that the people who fret about Obama’s ‘shady connections’ are so willing to associate themselves with ranting racist garbage. What is strange is that they are so vigilant in ‘moderating’ away comments from their posts but eagerly allow such toxic individuals to get right next to them to whisper in their ears.

Another comment that will soon be ‘moderated’:

You are a coward who can’t even defend his own stupid provocations. Your mouth is writing checks your spine can’t cash. However, I am appreciative of you providing yet another fine example of right wing wimps who like to talk tough but run away squealing without even crying ‘uncle’. Go put on some clean pants and try to act like a man from now on.
Thank you.

Now, Dear Reader, what would make the Furious Buddha so antagonistic? Since ‘Political Byline: conservative liberatian opinion ‘ has already deleted the post that is the focus of my outrage, you must go here to see what the clever mouthbreathers did. Yes, that really is a picture of Obama and a noose with the caption ‘The fucking solution’. Even though the big brave conservative libertarians have removed the article, ‘Washington  Scandal’ has preserved the post in it’s entirity. 

It would be easy to dismiss this blog post as just another troglodyte cousinhumper shooting off his mouth, but according to alexa he gets enough traffic to put him in the top 900,000 sites on the web-which doesn’t sound like much but it’s a lot more traffic than I get, Dear Reader, and he had people like Michelle Malkin linking into his filthy little post. Out one of side of their mouths these people sneer that Obama supporters cry ‘racism’ at every criticism and out of the other side they cheer every repugnant racist catcall that comes from their crowd.

Forty or so years ago, people called Dr King a ‘communist’. Hoover’s FBI worked with conservatives in the media such as Pat Buchannan to spread baseless rumors about him. They attacked him with dogs, threw bricks and stones at him, and when they first heard that he had been murdered felt something like joy in their dark tiny hearts. I would have not compared Barack Obama to Dr King six months ago but the confederacy of dunces that has arisen to oppose him looks very familiar to me.      

The Dow flucutated over a 1000 points on Friday. This year’s nobel prize winner in economics describes our current financial crisis as resembling the Great Depression. And the right wing is shrieking that the Democratic nominee is an ‘Arab Terrorist’ and the GOP candidates are encouraging them. They are so irresponsible that it is difficult to believe that they are actually doing these things, but when the chips are down people tend to show their true faces. And it appears that the true face of the right wing is not pretty at all.

***Update. The wingnuts really are allowing the most deranged among them generate their talking points. Here at this prominent PUMA blog they weave elaborate accusations that Obama was born in Kenya and isn’t an American citizen at all. Let’s see how long this comment lasts:

I find it interesting that you are running with the same theories that can be found on ‘White Nationalist’ blogs such as ‘Stormfront’. Doesn’t the fact that Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, wasn’t in Kenya at the time he was born, and was in fact, demonstrably in Hawaii at the time he was born refute your ‘theory’? Unless, of course, there was some sort of miracle surrounding the circumstances of his birth that allowed him to be in two places at the same time. That’s about the only way your ‘theory’ could work.

I won’t link to the Stormfront article directly, but here’s the google search that will lead you to it.

UPDATE II***
That took about two minutes. I tried again for my own amusement.
Sorry. You obviously deleted my comment because my laptop freaked out and cut a portion as I hit post, leaving it an incomplete thought. Here it is in full. I’m certain that you are a decent person capable of fair political discussion and weren’t just deleting my comment because it disagrees with your premise. I’m certainly not accusing you of racism, just pointing out that you are propagating the theories of racists.
