“I’m not quite sure what it is about pasty white urban liberals that makes them think they have the right to judge the ‘authenticity’ of someone’s race, but it must be tied to the same poorly oxygenated part of the brain that makes them blind to the fact assigning a skin color an ideology is racism of the first order itself.”

The media gives space to the neo-cons as they are the zionist sponsored batch and the most extreme of the teabaggers. They are also as phony as the fundy Christian movement, another zionist started and lead fascist movement to promote zionist policy. The neo-con teabaggers’ purpose is to give zionist puppet obama and his merry corporate welfare crew some opposition to fool the wad with…
If you say so, friend. Right at the moment, “zionist puppet obama” is doing one helluva misdirection job in the Middle East. I’m glad you’re the only person who can see it for what it truly is though.
Update: “So, you say, why is ‘zionist puppet obama’ so relaxed about Iranian nukes? Oh, don’t be so naive. Ayatollah Khamenei’s the biggest zionist neocon corporate teabagger of them all.”
