If you can't get enough of the propaganda wars -- We're on the path to socialism! The president's a foreigner! The government's trying to kill old people! -- get a load of Glenn Beck above. He and Rush Limbaugh are now arguing that President Barack Obama hates white people and their culture.
We presume this stems from the Henry Louis Gates affair, where the president's words were ill-advised, but by no means "death to honky." And it's hard to argue Obama has ill-will toward whitey, since that would include his own mother and grandparents. Yet that hasn't stopped conservative propagandists from pushing the theory. After all, nothing scares their followers down on the farm more than Angry Negro Man.
