Red State shows its Racism

by ProfessionalSmartAss

Red State headline:  "Obama surrenders to Iran".  But look at the photo they chose to use.

This was the first story this morning on Red State.  It was written by Streiff, one of Erick son of Erick's more delusional team members.  However, the implication couldn't be more clear.  Not a surprise, as the comments there are often full of racist content, but this is the first time I've noticed something this blatant on the front page.

RedStater's are clutching their pearls at the moment.  Apparently, per a RS thread by Robert Hahn, Obama used the word "teabag" to describe the tea-partiers.  The actual quote they are claiming is "Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care?"

Utilizing my (as yet) unbanned RedState id, I snuck in to see what's big news over there.  Perusing the actual editorial posts (not the individual comment threads/diaries) one finds lots of talk about SC Appointee Sotomayor,  accusing Obama of palling around with Terrorists (i.e. Chavez), Obama supporting dictators (Zelaya), etc.  The one thing that is curiously NOT being talked about, is Sarah Palin.  Nope, nothing going back all the way to July 3rd.
