Civility: Obama a “Rockefeller Republican in Blackface”

Posted by on Nov 12, 2012 at 2:52 pm

You know at this point I’d gladly take a Rockefeller Republican in lieu of the far left radical that is Obama. Anyway, people are allowed to crack racial jokes about Obama if they’re black and have the proper street cred.

Academic and activist Cornel West blasts Barack Obama, just days after the first black president’s reelection.

“It’s very sad. I mean, I’m glad there was not a right-wing takeover, but we end up with a Republican, a Rockefeller Republican in blackface, with Barack Obama, so that our struggle with regard to poverty intensifies,” West said of Obama.

He then said Obama is to the right of former Republican president Richard Nixon. “Oh, that’s what we have,” West said after the host of the show wondered whether the activist was being too harsh. “Richard Nixon is to the left of him on health care. Richard Nixon’s to the left of him on guaranteed income.”

Actually Nixon did quite a bit to expand the federal government, but a lot of good that did him with the left. At the same time  when Obama leaves office Nixon will look scandal-free.

    Look up the word “meretrecious” in your dictionary. You should see a picture of “Academic and activist Cornel West.”

    But…but…only conservatives and white people ever make disrespectful, racist comments.
    If you’re anyone else, it’s just witty and edgy.
