Tennessee Republican Party always proud of America Ad
The southern conservative Republicans are using the fear and race cards to attack Sen. Barack Obama by way of his wife Michelle. They are trying to send the message that she, and by-means-of guilt-by-association, Barack, is not patriotic and doesn’t love America. Why mustn’t she love America? Because she hasn’t always been proud of America.
In the conservative Republican worldview in order to be patriotic and love America, one must always be proud of America.
“The Tennessee Republican Party has always been proud of our country.”
In a four minute video, released May 15, they interplay Michelle Obama’s proud of America statement (which was edit to make her look bad) with several Tennesseans offering why they are proud of America. The video ends, as shown above, with the closing: “The Tennessee Republican Party has always been proud of our country.”
Since the southern Republican Party has always been proud of America, they must be proud as well of the south’s history of slavery, lynchings, cross-burnings, house-burnings, the Ku Klux Klan with their white robes and hoods, the double standards of Jim Crow laws, and the uncountable acts of terrorism that whites have committed mainly against blacks.
What an incredible admission! And on top of that, to brag about being proud of these insidious acts, which don’t belong in any modern civil society, is just amazing to me. This is nothing short of admitting that they are nothing more than a bigoted, racist, xenophobe, white supremacist organization!
Next time, I’ll briefly illuminate some of the past events that the conservative Republicans yearn for.
