Is The Washington Post Trying to Macaca Mitt Romney?
Senator George Allen was running for reelection six years ago as a Republican from Virginia. The Senator was being touted for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. He would have been a much stronger candidate than Senator John McCain.
On August 11, 2006 Senator Allen referred to an Indian campaign aide of his opponent, Jim Webb, as a “macaca.” Macaca turns out to be an ethnic slur in the Belgium Congo and may be used against those of Indian descent. Who knew that?
The Post hammered Senator Allen daily for his racism based on the use of macaca. The once heavily favored Senator lost reelection by 8,805 votes.
The Washington Post decided the election.
President Obama came out yesterday in favor of gay marriage, a position I support.
The Washington Post today published an article reporting that Mitt Romney in high school engaged in pranks and hi jinks, including harassing a gay student. He didn’t like how one student wore his hair (bleached blond hair hanging over one ear). One classmate held the student down while Romney cut his hair. We are to believe that Governor Romney was a homophobe in 1965.
Is there any other evidence for this than memories of 47 years ago?
Since when did the media start fly specking the college records, much less high school records, of Presidential candidates?
Why did President Obama get a free pass on his alcohol and drug usage? How about a deeper look at Barry’s drug habits?
Why did the media cover up his cigarette smoking?
Why didn’t the mainstream media fly speck President Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayres, a domestic terrorist who still wakes up every morning hoping that capitalism has died?
Why didn’t the mainstream media fly speck the President’s relationship with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and his Black Liberation Theology, or even Fr. Michael Pfleger?
Will the Washington Post spend as much resources on the young Obama and his treatment of Coretta?
What about President Obama’s academic records?
If Mitt Romney’s supposed high school activities are an issue, then what about President Obama’s birth certificate? I am not a birther; I believe it is a non-issue, but it sure looked like he was covering up something.
The tone of the blog is intended to instill class warfare against the Governor. The Governor attended Cranbrook, a prep school. The article describes Cranbrook as “the prestigious Cranbrook” on a “handsome campus, studded with Tudor brick buildings and manicured fields.”
We knew 2012 was going to be a vicious, negative campaign, but this is absurd. It’s the economy, stupid!
