Racist Smear On Romney By The Soros Media: "You're Too White"
This has to be one of the most disgusting and misleading pieces of campaign filth I've seen in quite some time.
It's the product of a new Soros funded media group entitled 'The Message', composed of Razor & Tie co-founder Cliff Chenfeld, former Media Matters for America president Eric Burns, former AOL chief creative officer and co-founder of theknot.com Michael Wolfson, and former New York Times journalist Andrew Zipern.
The setting is a supposed 'briefing' Governor Romney prior to his speech to Democrat front group the NAACP.
They have an obnoxious actor who is introduced as the 'inventor' of the Willie Horton ads used in the 1988 Bush campaign( which, by the way, were factually correct) and the man who 'built the Swift Boats with his own two hands.'
He then has a roundtable of supposed Romney advisers mouth talking points about 'why blacks don't like Romney', which include attacking his religion and accusing him of latent racism, the usual garbage about how voter ID laws are a plot by Republicans to keep blacks and young people from voting and how voter fraud is a myth, and supposed 'racist' comments by Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck that Governor Romney is supposed to have 'condemned'.
It finishes up with the actor telling Governor Romney that he is 'so white, You're so white you make white bread look like pumpernickel' and bringing in a young black actor ( whose presence in the room all the 'white advisers' are shown being noticeably uncomfortable with) that they plan to pay to stand behind Governor Romney during his speech and act like he's a supporter.
Because of course, no black person could ever possibly approve of Governor Romney's message of economic empowerment, job creation, a strong foreign policy and reduced government.
In short, aside from being outright liars, the people who produced this ad are as racist and anti-black as they come, because they assume blacks are so stupid and self-destructive that they will lap this up unquestioningly at a time when black unemployment is at an all time high due to this president's policies.
This is not an official Obama campaign message, which gives this president plausible deniability. But there's absolutely no question in my mind that his campaign knows all about it and approved it.
Is President Obama going to disassociate himself from this and condemn it publicly? Don't hold your breath.
