Breitbart “News” Says Dark-Skinned Teen Actor Is “Obama Look-Alike,” Commenters Wish Death on the President

A real life racist cliché
Wingnuts • Views: 32,296

Breitbart “News” crack journalist Tony Lee has yet another BREAKING BOMBSHELL SCOOP today, a US Customs and Border Protection advertisement that features a dark-skinned Central American actor who “dies” trying to cross the border into the US.

What?! A dark-skinned actor? To the Breitbrats this can mean only one thing, because they do all look alike, don’t they? OBAMA LOOK-ALIKE DIES IN US BORDER PROTECTION COMMERCIAL AIMED AT MIGRANTS.

Of course, if you watch the video they posted you discover there really isn’t much of a resemblance at all; the actor is a teenager.

This absurdly stereotypical post gets the Breitbart audience all worked up, of course, because that’s what it was designed to do; they react by wishing death on the President.

On July 4th.

Be still my beating heart.

[…]

Fake? Damnnnnit quick toying with my emotions! I was happy at the news until I found out it was a commercial.

[…]

Obama is waging war on the traditional white-European American demographic. He is crushing them economically and he will further use the people from foreign countries to batter the citizen culturally and politically. His disdain for America is deep and he will do whatever he can to destroy her.

[…]

We all know what we’re wishing…

[…]

And they said there are no FEEL GOOD videos any more!

[…]

Obama the illegal alien. A cameo appearance!

[…]

We couldn;t be so lucky! I pray every day AF 1 goes down.

[…]

The only thing wrong with that video I that they used a look alike………

[…]

Speaking of diversions I wonder what the Muslims in the White House are planning while the country is being distracted by the illegals.

[…]

I don’t want to see him die like that…I want him to get cancer and a bad doctor…..

[…]

I have NEVER thought of this before and can’t believe I am about to say this. I think it’s time our country had Her first military coup.

As I write this, there are almost 800 comments in the thread, just dripping with hatred, overt racism, xenophobia and calls for revolution and military takeover. And lots of comments calling for the President’s death.

That’s what these kinds of posts are intended to provoke — it’s the Breitbart “News” business model.
