“Birthers are Racist”
What else would you expect from the son of an imam who has been given a free ride from the enemedia? Â This guy’s record is worse than Tokyo Rose or Mata Hari, but he still gets airtime. And gets paid for it!
In an interview with Jay Leno, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria dug into Glenn Beck, responding to Beck’s characterization of himâ€“Zakariaâ€“as an “America basher and useful idiot.”
Zakaria told Leno, “I’m an immigrant. I’m not an American by accident of birth, as Glenn Beck is. I’m an American by choice. I came to this country.”
In the same interview, Zakaria also implied that birthers are racist:
Look, I think that some of this [birtherism]â€“maybe there are people who feel genuinely worried about thisâ€“I think some of it is being used by politicians as a coded way to talk about race, and the fact that he’s [Obama’s] different from us, whatever that means. I think it’s a great shame. Because first of all, it’s unbecoming, it’s un-American. Secondly, look at this last census. What does it mean to be different from us? You’ve got 50 million Hispanic Americans. You’ve got a country that is increasingly a mixture of minorities. Look at us, we all have funny last names.
