Linda Harvey: Obama "the most racist president in US history"

See also

Like many religious authoritarians, Linda Harvey of Mission America does not understand that denying preferential treatment to Christians is not discriminatory against Christians.

On her radio show last week, Harvey was livid that Oprah Winfrey had asserted that "there is a level of disrespect for the office [of the president] that occurs" and that some of it is driven by race.

Harvey responded by declaring that Obama is not only anti-black himself, but that he may be "the most racist president in US history.

"Why? Because he supports equal rights for LGBTs, of course.

"Obama's policies have produced more youth homosexual behavior, not less" Harvey complained. "No, if the definition of racism is to support policies that harm people of color, then Barack Obama is the most racist president in US history and Oprah Winfrey is his cheerleader. We need God’s help to raise up new leaders for America, ones who will protect and defend America and Americans, let’s all pray for that."

First and foremost, that is not the definition of racism. Racism, plain and simple, is the belief that people, based on traits of belief or genetics, are inferior and/or do not deserve the same rights as others.

Ergo, to suggest that Barack Obama is racist because he has supported equal rights across the board is nothing short of atrocious, too much so for it to be chalked up her usual stupidity.
