The Nation of Islam’s leadership is known for saying racist things, mainly anti-Semitic, decade after decade. Just a couple of months ago, NOI leader Louis Farrakhan said that white people would be “removed from the face of the earth,” because God had decided it was necessary, adding that “Allah will fight this war for the sake of his people.”

There’s a word for that: Genocide.

That context in mind, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) appeared on Nation of Islam radio over the weekend and added racist fuel to the NOI’s fire.

“I’ve been in Washington. I saw three presidents now. I never saw George Bush treated like this. I never saw Bill Clinton treated like this with such disrespect,” Thompson said. “That Mitch McConnell would have the audacity to tell the president of the United States — not the chief executive, but the commander-in-chief — that ‘I don’t care what you come up with we’re going to be against it.’ Now if that’s not a racist statement I don’t know what is.”

Thompson adds at 2:40 in the video that the governor of Mississippi was against expanding Medicaid through Obamacare “just because a black man created it.”

At 3:00 into the video, Thompson adds opposition to Obama is “all about race” and “when a black man comes with an idea [for Obamacare] there’s something wrong with it. Again, it’s race creeping into the picture.”

At 4:47 in the video, he says the anti-government attitude has only been around since Obama was president.

“Now all of a sudden, government is the worst thing in the world since a black man became president.”

Thompson also called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” and said that “he doesn’t like black people.”

BuzzFeed has video of Thompson’s racist remarks.

What BuzzFeed doesn’t have, at least not yet, is video of any Democrat stepping forward to condemn Thompson for appearing on the National of Islam’s radio program, much less making his series of vile remarks.

George W. Bush was treated with tremendous disrespect; Clinton did not get the disrespect he so richly deserved. If Obama were given the treatment he deserves, he would not remain in office.

He never saw Bush treated with such disrespect? He doesn't remember that little impeachment thing with Clinton? The man is either a liar of extremely poor abilities, senile or a complete idiot. Is that racist of me?

Obviously, as a disciple of John the Bupkis...he will not allow himself to be questioned.

The Messiah came to us riding on the back of the Democratic donkey.

God Damn America. Allah will kill the white, Judeo-Christian devil.


And that hate will not be questioned.

“I’ve been in Washington. I saw three presidents now. I never saw George Bush treated like this. I never saw Bill Clinton treated like this with such disrespect,”

Ha ha ha. That's pretty funny.

Well, when you're right, you're right.

once more there is a pass for hate speech, if it comes from Muslims or blacks, or black muslims.

If Mr. Thompson has been in Congress since President Clinton, he needs to go home. Career politicians corrupt the political process. If his constituents don't fire him after all that time, he should patriotically resign.

I think we should stop attempting to deal rationally with any individual who publicly announces that any objection to Obamacare is racially motivated.

Bennie joined the House of Representatives in 1993, has been there (cough) a disgustingly long 20 years. And he, like all of his democrat colleagues in the House, neither read nor understood the 2000+ page monstrosity euphemistically named the Affordable Care Act before casting an enthusiastic "yea" vote.

So whatever criticism Bennie tries to level now at ACA bashers is moot, not to mention irrelevant.

Black Congresscritters, male and female, seem unduly ignorant. Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, some other representative from California, Hank Johnson who wondered about Guam tipping over with military buildup, Elijah Cummings whose office may well have helped the IRS target tea party groups, which is why he was so adamant about shutting down the investigation...impeached federal judge Alcee Hastings whose district re-elected him after he dun time, William "cold cash" Jefferson, bribe money to the tune of $90,000 in his home freezer...

(the 800 # elephant in the room...)

Keith Ellison is another black representative who has cozied up to Louis ("the vicious anti-semite") Farrakhan. Obama's church under JWright gave Farrakhan some sterling citizen recognition award.

In the interests of fair and balanced bashing, it can be noted that all of those together have a hard time adding up to the baldfaced lying Caucasian and chairwoman of the democrat party, Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Debbie's free and easy lying is loaded with chutzpah.
