Being an Australian I don’t really take much notice of US politics, but as Rupert Murdoch and his acolytes here such as Andrew Bolt have been championing Sarah Palin and Rupert’s own Glenn Beck and their Tea Party rallies, I knew that something evil was afoot. They have tried to assure us that there is nothing racist about their opposition to Obama but I am not so sure. Here are just some of the signs and other stuff that have been pictured at these Tea Parties and made by people sympathetic to their cause over the last year and a bit, as well as some from when Obama was campaigning for president. It’s pretty stupid and scary stuff.It’s all pretty horrible and evil stuff. There may be a lot of legitimate concerns about Obama’s presidency but it seems that too many Americans are just racist and don’t like seeing a black man as president. Any legitimate concerns are overshadowed by the absurd racists who keep doing this shit. Of course we are meant to be in the 21st Century and racism is supposed to be a thing of the past, but it seems that there are many out there who are still stuck in the 18th century.
