The debate that took place in North Carolina on MLK Day shames all freedom-loving Americans and shows just how Americans have lost all social conscience. From the time of Ronald Reagan to this present moment Americans have grown poorer and more callous than ever. It is all about self: I, me and my.
Juan Williams was set-up by Fox News to ask Newt Gingrich about his racist remarks concerning President Barack Obama and poor black children. Next Gingrich calls President Obama the “food stamp president” and says that little black children don’t have work models in their lives and should be allowed to work as janitors in their schools.
Gingrich cries out “I am just giving the facts,” but the truth is he is race bating in South Carolina, hoping that electability doesn’t trump ideology. Mitt Romney has won as the anti-Obama candidate. People are overlooking his religion and his throat-cutting profit taking as a venture capitalist at Bain. Gingrich has not been able to turn a single voter away from Romney by showing the jobs lost and profit taken by Bain. So he is just playing the race card because his only goal at this point is to hurt Romney. Winning the presidency is not a goal at this point.
On this, of all days, the Republicans in the debate audience applauded the sarcastic Gingrich and booed the token black, Juan Williams.
