Top Virginia GOP Donor: Having African-American President Fomenting “Black-on-White Violence”


According to top Virginia GOP donor – and, based on these comments, a clear victim of severe, probably terminal, “Obama Derangement Syndrome” – Marion “Pat” Robertson:

We are having a tremendous amount of this black-on-white violence and I have a feeling that instead of bringing racial harmony, having an African-American president has exacerbated the problem…He seems to be wanting to bring division among people instead of bringing them together; he is one of the most divisive leaders this country has ever had. And, it just seems he wants to rub the edges raw every chance he gets to talk about the rich, or talk about the privileged, or talk about the impoverished middle class, blacks and whites and so forth. There’s always something there to stir up controversy.

Translation: a) Obama is “divisive” because he’s black; b) Obama is rubbing things raw by talking about the same things (rich people, the poor, the privileged) that Jesus did. Hmmmm.

Of course, this is the same top Virginia GOP donor who has said: Gays Destroy Society, Want Christians in Jail; that gays are really straights with “chromosomal damage”, that Planned Parenthood backs genocide and inspired Hitler, that “Wild” Liberals Support “Society of Death” , that…well, you get the idea. And meanwhile, I haven’t heard Robertson’s “dear friend” “Bobby” McDonnell condemning his continued spewing of hateful remarks, nor have I heard Ken Cuccinelli uttering a peep about them either (by Cuccinelli’s own reasoning, he needs to denounce Robertson immediately or else he must condone his remarks!), nor have I seen Virginia Republicans returning all the money they’ve received from Robertson over the years. To paraphrase Ken Cuccinelli’s own language, “Will Cuccinelli speak out against Pat Robertson now?” I’m not holding my breath waiting for him to do so, that’s for sure.
