NPR Admits Opposition To Obama May Not Be Due To Racism But Because Hes Terrible
Downtrend.com ^ | 5/13/2014 | Brian Anderson

We’ve been told over and over that opposing President Obama’s socialist anti-American agenda is due to deep-seated racism and not any conservative values one might hold. Now, the National Public Radio (NPR), of all media outlets, has posted a piece on their blog saying that there might be something more to disliking Obama than just racism. I know, I’m shocked too.

This refreshing revelation from a decidedly left-leaning news source starts out with a great premise:

There’s no question we’re living in a time of divisive politics, when roughly half the country is likely to hate the president, no matter whom he or she might be.

And back it up with a good quote:

“If any white Democrat had pushed through a billion-dollar stimulus plan and a takeover of the health care industry, he would have been equally detested by conservatives and Republicans,” says Whit Ayres, a GOP pollster and consultant.

Maybe “white privilege” is at work here. It’s insidious, you know. Even liberals have to fight it in themselves.

Name one of Ubama’s policies we would support if he were a white East Coast limousine liberal, NPR.

Yeah, they are about to switch over to a more pragmatic Marxist in a pantsuit.

Pray America wakes up

Color has nothing to do with it. He’s a Marxist, he’s incompetent, he’s a puppet and he hates America. I don’t like people like that and I could care less what color their skin is. If you are out to destroy my country, I don’t like you.

Here’s a link to the NPR article...they hardly blame 0’s mistakes, over the color of his skin. Completely softball the issue.

The comments at the lib link are so telling of the REAL issue we’re dealing with....

I'm not so willing to applaud NPR for stating the obvious. I suppose I should credit this as progress (not progressive.

HUH????

Here is NPR's title:
Race Alone Doesn't Explain Hatred Of Obama, But It's Part Of The Mix"

They clearly stated race was an issue, contrary to this goofy article.

I agree. Read their comments. They don’t have a clue. They double down on racism. True believers are all that are left.

Getting ready for the big switch... It isn’t racism, its... sexism.

I guess I can't get to the comments on my stupid phone. But the article starts with a premise and goes non-stop to fulfill it, facts be damned.

The liberal press knows more about Obama than they have been telling.

Bob Beckle on Fox's The 5 even made a few conservative leaning comments today.
