Alan Colmes Agrees With Obama: Middle America is Full of Xenophobes
And now to add to the ever-lengthening list of Obamessiah apologists comes TV and Radio talker Alan Colmes to say that Barack Obama is right, Middle America IS filled with racist, overly religious, gun-nuts.
On his LiberalLand blog (the formerly secret blog he was hiding from the greater world), Sean Hannity's co-host said the following:
And just where is he wrong? Pointing out why people may be bitter or frustrated, that there is xenophobia, that people sometimes cling to religion or feel paranoid about the government and embrace guns doesn’t mean you hate or disdain a portion of the population.
First of all people do not "cling" to guns and religion because of what a government does or does not do. It is especially demeaning to people's religious sentiment to say that government is their reason for "clinging" to their religion. And secondly, Obama did not mean to say that people were merely frustrated. He was clearly trying to paint Middle America as racist, gun-nuts that were too stupid to understand what was going on around them.
It is also impossible, Mr. Colmes, not to see that he was singling out a "portion of the population" when he was quite specific in his target. It is also telling that he was speaking before some elite, West Coast liberals, too.
You have quite a dilemma, Mr. Colmes. If Barack really doesn't feel disdain for all those Middle Americans like you say, then he was pandering and lying to those West Coast lefties before whom he was appearing.
So, your only choices by which to assess Mr. Obama's remarks, Mr. Colmes, are two. Number one he really disdains Middle America. Number two, he doesn't and was just lying to the West Coasters. So he either hates a large segment of the country, or he is a panderer and liar.
Neither choice shows your messiah in a very good light, Mr. Colmes.
No wonder you tried to keep your blog a secret. Were I you, I would have too.
