Tancredo: Send Obama Back to Africa
At a tea party in South Carolina over the weekend, former GOP presidential candidate Tom Tancredo said about President Obama: “If his wife says Kenya is his homeland, why don’t we just send him back?”
Absolutely unbelievable. This kind of unabashedly racist rhetoric has become completely open on the right wing: “Send ‘em back to Africa!”
Also at this rally: Dan Gonzalez of the whacked out Constitution Party, who declared that the Obama administration is “the end of America right here,” predicted fighting in the streets, and said that the GOP is owned by the Rockefellers. (Hmm, that sounds familiar.)
And what would a reactionary right wing rally be without some gratuitous gay-bashing?
I’m a tolerant person. I don’t care about your private life, Lindsey, but as our U.S. Senator I need to figure out why you’re trying to sell out your own countrymen, and I need to make sure you being gay isn’t it.
