    and their Obama bashing is honest racism and actual conservatism.

    Not batshit at all, just Southern.

      None of these folks said anything that seemed racist. They bashed Obama and democrats in general for wanting to spend without balancing the budget in their eyes, and they bounced the idea that he was closing ww2 memorials to cause the most pain, but they never ventured farther than that.

      Racism is a huge fault in anyone, and it probably played slightly into their viewpoints, but I didn't hear anything I would consider even a dog whistle. Just a lot of misinformed economic discussion .
