Mychal Massie begins his April 28 WorldNetDaily column by dismissing the racist comments of Cliven Bundy:
The past two weeks have been a race-monger’s dream. Cliven Bundy responded to an interview question that has allowed the press to portray both him and those of us who support him as racist.
But the truth is, even if Cliven Bundy were the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, racism wouldn’t be the issue. The issue is a rogue federal government. The issue is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which was handed scathing reprimands by Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Nevada Circuit Court in September 2012 and May 2013 in his finding for the Hage family, whom the BLM targeted as they did the Bundy family.
Amazingly, that's not the most offensive thing in his column. That comes in yet another example of his pathological hatred of President Obama:
Now come the alleged comments of Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, that were secretly recorded while he was having a dispute with his girlfriend. The recording then mysteriously found its way to TMZ for TMZ to present as an exclusive. During the dispute, Sterling opined to his girlfriend (who is black and Mexican) that he was upset by her public association with certain blacks – among whom was Magic Johnson. If we are to believe the tape has not been doctored, Sterling indicated he did not want his girlfriend to bring these blacks to basketball games.
And as quick as you can say “Mac-Daddy sissy,” Obama, with the blood of the Benghazi Four (Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty) on his hands; the IRS scandal; Fast and Furious (and the blood of Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata also on his hands); unemployment at unparalleled highs; America becoming a food-stamp nation; Japanese reports that Michelle plans to divorce him (supposedly over his countless affairs); and “If you like your insurance you can keep it,” he finds time to feign insult over Sterling’s comments.
Obama called Sterling’s alleged comments, “incredibly offensive racist statements.” He continued: “We constantly have to be on guard on racial attitudes that divide us rather than embracing our diversity as a strength. … The United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that’s still there, the vestiges of discrimination. … We’ve made enormous strides, but you’re going to continue to see this percolate up every so often … and I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why statements like this stand out so much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves.”
Obama’s comments were morally opprobrious and boorish but obviously not out of character for him. Obama has done less to further the racial unity of America and more to exasperate and, indeed, to exacerbate racial and religious tensions in America and around the world than any American leader before him.
Massie has apparently decided to channel another pathological Obama-hater, James David Manning, who delights in slurring Obama as a "long-legged mack daddy."
Massie then indulges in another depraved lie of the kind he cannot stop telling about Obama:
A true leader would have taken the opportunity to tell the world that even if the alleged recording of Sterling were accurate, Sterling doesn’t represent America. He is one person, and in America, unlike the rest of the world, he is entitled to his opinions even if they are offensive.
As the mess of ellipses in Massie's earlier quote of Obama indicates, he edited out a lot of Obama's statement. In fact, Obama did pretty much say what Massie demanded him to:
I don’t think I have to interpret those statements for you; they kind of speak for themselves. When people — when ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk. And that’s what happened here.
But the facts have never mattered to Massie when he has a heady froth of Obama-hate going, as further illustrated by his assertion that "Sterling has done more for blacks than Obama."
The liar just can't help himself.
