Ever the sniveling bigots, far-right pundits react to Obama’s race speech in predictable fashion
To no one’s great surprise, President Obama’s impromptu speech about racial issues Friday afternoon (see HERE) aroused a chorus of negative reaction from the right-wing noise machine.
A few conservatives who can walk upright — David Brooks, for example — lauded the president’s remarks (see HERE).
But the media gurus to knuckledraggers on the far-right of the political spectrum reacted more characteristically, as we see HERE:
Fox News’ Greg Jarrett: “Is The President Reducing Racial Tension Or Stoking Racial Tension?” Fox News host Greg Jarrett responded to the remarks by speculating on whether the president was “stoking racial tension.” He later wondered, “Doesn’t the president now run the risk that he is going to provoke even more demonstrations, and let’s hope not, but potential violence?”
Sean Hannity: Did Obama Compare Himself To Trayvon Martin Because “He Did A Little Blow?” On his radio program, Sean Hannity talked about Obama’s remarks and wondered if Obama compared himself to Martin because “he smoked pot, and he did a little blow.”
Fox News’ Todd Starnes: Obama Is “Unpresidential,” “Race-Baiter In Chief” Who Is “Trying To Tear Our Country Apart.” Fox’s Todd Starnes reacted to Obama’s remarks on Twitter by calling him “unpresidential” and alleging that he “is trying to tear our country apart.” Starnes added, “I thought when you got elected president – you were president of all skin colors.”
Fox News Contributor Tammy Bruce: “I Had No Idea Obama Sucker-Punched A Watch Volunteer & Then Bashed His Head In. Who Knew?” Conservative radio host and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce reacted twice on Twitter, claiming Obama’s remarks were intended to distract from other stories and tweeted, “So Obama ‘could have been’ Trayvon 35 yrs ago? I had no idea Obama sucker-punched a watch volunteer & then bashed his head in. Who knew?”
Fox Nation: Did Obama’s Remarks “Make The Racial Divide In Case Worse?” (See image above.)
Pamela Geller: Obama’s “Thugocracy” Is “Too Eager To Publicly Lynch Geroge [Sic] Zimmerman.” Conservative commentator Pamela Geller reacted to the president’s comments by calling him a “buffoon,” “racist,” and “eager to publicly lynch Geroge [sic] Zimmerman.” She argued that the president is guilty of “sedition.”
Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro: “Shorter Obama: Look At Me! America Is Racist.” Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large of Breitbart.com, argued on Twitter that Obama “helped ignite this ginned up racial melee” and said that Obama called America “racist.”
Washington Times’ Emily Miller: “Obama Is The Most Irresponsible Presidnet [Sic] In History.” The Washington Times’ Senior Opinion Editor Emily Miller reacted to the president’s remarks on Twitter.
