A teabagger complains that racism in America is President Obama’s fault.
Wayne Allyn Root, a Fox News contributor and occasional Republican politician, says racism wasn’t a problem until Obama “brought it back,” and what’s worse, Obama has made cops too “scared” to shoot black people.
“It’s like we’re reliving the 1960s with Barack Obama,” Root said on a radio program yesterday. “He didn’t come in to help us end the specter of racism, he brought it back, folks.”
Root offered some more old-fashioned race-baiting. “Is it not a racist overreaction by the police department that is scared to death of being called racist to allow people to loot and burn and do nothing but stand by while stores are being looted and burned because the people doing the looting and burning might have dark skin, and therefore if you hit one of them, if you arrest any of them – if you kill one of them in a gunfight – you’ll be charged with even more racism?”
Root says he plans to run against Harry Reid in 2016, presumably on a platform of making sure cops aren’t afraid to shoot black people.
