It looks like Mitt Romney is going to run a full-on race-baiting campaign. He thinks that “American Exceptionalism” is “White Male Exceptionalism” and nothing else. Today he released an ad that turned up the volume of his racist-dog-whistle campaign to eleven.
In it, he lies (of course) about the Obama Administration granting two Republican Governors the wavers they asked for to the Welfare Reform law. The point of the Romney campaign is to see if white voters will still respond to the racist memes of Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms and the other neo-Confederates that took over the Republican Party when Nixon and Reagan shamelessly decided to embrace their hate as the future of the GOP and the Conservative movement.
Sure, white racists are killing people to celebrate their ignorance, but Mitt is running for President for Pete’s sake. So don’t look to him to exercise any judgement.
For the next three months, Mittens and his wingnutopia minions will be bringing the crazy: and the hate. It is only a matter of time before Mitt openly runs as the last hope of white America. His entire campaign is based on screaming that the President is a Ni-CLANG! in various modes of code-talking. Without that, he’s got nothing.
