The conservative media, driven by “Movement Conservatives,” are falling all over themselves, wrapped in a Confederate Flag of white fear.
President Barack Obama is black, and it’s only beginning to sink in with Movement Conservatives.
What is a Movement Conservative? This from Sourcewatch:
Movement Conservatism is a self-serving and socially malevolent cabal of mega-corporations, right-wing think tanks in Washington, their archconservative foundation benefactors, and an intricate nationwide network of linkages in the communications media, religion, higher education, and law. It has been called the “conservative labyrinth,” and common to all its elements is a theology of “free markets,” an ideology coming to full bloom in the Administration of George W. Bush. Today, the G.O.P. seeks to impose it at every turn.
America has a black president. America could have a black president for eight solid years. Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Lou Dobbs, G. Gordon Liddy, and Glenn Beck are terrified.
All they can do is fan the flames of racism, white fear.
And it turns out Barack Obama is basically just a moderate-to-slightly-liberal politician.
