MSNBC has yet again implied that political criticism of Obama is racist after talking head Richard Wolffe mused that Republican opposition to Obama making a speech on a date that clashed with a presidential debate was down to “the color of his skin”.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Last Word, a vehemently statist broadcast hosted by Lawrence O’Donnell, who previously attempted to portray Ron Paul as a Ku Klux Klan-supporting bigot, Wolffe played the race card in explaining why people have lost respect for Obama.
“The interesting question is: What is it about this president that has stripped away the veneer of respect that normally accompanies the Office of the President? Why do Republicans think this president is unpresidential and should dare to request this kind of thing? It strikes me that it could be the economic times, it could be that he won so big in 2008 or it could be, let’s face it, the color of his skin. This is an extraordinary reaction to a normal sequence of events,” he stated.
Wolffe is an MSNBC regular, having appeared numerous times on Chris Matthews’ Hardball and previously filling in as a guest host for Keith Olbermann.
MSNBC has a history of race-baiting and attempting to characterize legitimate political criticism of Barack Obama as racist.
Back during the Obama Joker poster era, when depictions of the President as the fictional character out of Batman were deemed racist by the establishment media despite identical images being produced of Bush as the Joker for years before, MSNBC host Carlos Watson insinuated that calling Obama a “socialist” was secret code for a racist slur.
