Does that mean we love his white half?
Via Campus Reform:
A prominent university professor delivered a speech last week in which she accused conservatives of disliking President Obama because of his race.
“No one predicted the virulence of this hostility to Obama,” Professor Linda Gordon of New York University said, speaking before a crowd of students. “I believe that much of it is racial and that it is compounded by his rational, considered, intellectual style.”
She added that such hatred is “an aspect of long standing American anti-intellectualism.”
Gordon was also largely critical of the Tea Party movement in her hour-long address, arguing that that they hold “an unrealistic notion of individualism” and “deny the facts.”
In an exclusive interview with Campus Reform, she stood by her comments, adding that there is a “radical, racial dimension to the Tea Party.”
Gordon said she was basing these allegations on statements she had read from the Tea Party, but could not cite any specific statements that had led her to her conclusion.
