Sarah Palin Co-Opts MLK to Attack President Obama, Commenters Spew Racism

Caribou Barbie weighs in, while her followers provide the hate

Next one up in the Co-Opt MLK Sweepstakes, the always dim-witted Sarah Palin, who uses the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to accuse President Obama of “playing the race card.”

Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.

This asinine turnspeak is always a winner with the knuckle-dragging right wing base. Here’s a sampling of the comments for her Facebook post, in which complaints about being falsely accused of racism are juxtaposed with incredibly hateful racism, often right next to each other:

Be careful of what you wish for… We are judging them by the content of their character and it is not good.

[…]

Pin the tale on the Honkie. He is blaming racism for him being the worst president in history.

[…]

This president had set race relations in this country back 50 years. We were finally making headway until he took over and ruined it. For this and a host of other reasons, I declare his presidency an epic fail!! Shame on him!!

[…]

I am white and now have a dream my four children will one day live in a country where they aren’t prejudged because they are white.

[…]

everytime some one goes against Obama hes gonna play the race card but he needs to look the mirror and decide who hes gonna be racist against because he is white and black!!!!!!!!!!

[…]

We do judge on content of character and we’re called racist for it.

[…]

Obama could have been one of the greatest presidents this country ever knew if he hadn’t played the race card, loved the USA more then his Muslim faith and fought to prevent socialism and bring back our American values and pride.

[…]

Amen, Sarah. I don’t believe it is the white race that is prejudice in the year of our Lord 2014. Seems to me that it is definitely some misguided black people that will not let the nations problem with color, die. I believe they are doing it purely for personal reasons, their pocketbook.

[…]

Hitler aka Obama has undone everything n set this country back a 100 years more..

[…]

This administration has done the most to divide the races since slavery.

[…]

He would be very disappointed in the first black president and the obamaphone foodstamp “ain’t nobody got time fo dat” crowd that exists now

[…]

Obama just can’t get over the fact that he’s half white.

[…]

Don’t for get the fraud, voting several times and illegal voting. threats by black panthers, oh and the dead that voted for him. Not race hes as much white as black, but hes muslim.

[…]

Maybe he resents being half white.

[…]

The problem today is blacks hating whites and feeling that we owe them something because we are white. Most of the whites migrated here after slavery.

[…]

Today’s blacks are more racists than today’s whites. Today’s blacks want a handout and don’t wanna Put in work to get it like MLK.

[…]

The content of their character IS the problem!

[…]

the white,s do not have a race problem with the black,s the black,s have the problem,they are really better off, than the white,we have to work for what we get, you just hold your hand out.

[…]

It is not about the color of skin. It is the content of their character. Clean up your acts. Quit being a race of ghetto gang banging thug criminals wanting your entire life paid for. Quit being the true racists in America. Try making MLK proud instead of ashamed.

[…]

No one can prove what race he is…he could just be Arab….a lot of Arabs are mixed. We have seen enough birth certificates and none are accurate. He doesnt even know his exact birthday. He cant even prove who his Mother is…in all honesty. His so called book wasnt written by him, and it is a fairy tale that, in his mind, actually happened. This guy has no known ACTUAL proven past, and what there is…cannot be seen…why is it hidden? No one verified his SS#. His marriage is a sham, due to his “background” that “is proven” and I have no respect for a woman who would live as she has. Maybe some day..she will disappear as his other.”lovers”. This whole nightmare is just allowed to continue with no recourse. Where is the strength and honesty in this country? How can we recover from the embarrassments we have faced. around the world… with the deception connected the Obama legacy?????
