Wow. Oh, yes he did. (Mediaite):
Former South Carolina Governor and Fox News contributor Mark Sanford wandered off the Appalachian Trail again Sunday morning when, in yet another completely isolated example of a Republican being totally-not-racist even though he sounds racist, said that President Obama is going to “come out and throw a lot of spears” at Tuesday’s upcoming debate.
Gov. Sanford first praised former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney‘s performance at the first debate, then predicted that “You know, obviously Obama will come out in this case much more forcefully and he will throw a lot of spears.”
Tongue firmly planted in cheek, Mediaite reporter Tommy Christopher wrote:
Completely coincidentally, and not at all related to this, the term “spearchucker” is a racial slur against black people, but what would a 52 year-old white guy from South Carolina know about that? Also, he didn’t call President Obama a “spearchucker,” he just said he would be throwing spears. That’s completely different.
I guess Sanford had his Klan sheet at the cleaners so it wasn’t available to wear during his Faux News appearance.
“But I’m not racist…”
Moving north to New Jersey, the race-baiting continues with the re-emergence of a familiar image of Barack Obama, this time in a display in Bill Skuby’s storefront in downtown Spring Lake.
The picture shows Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, naked except for a primitive loincloth, with a bone through his nose, witch-doctor style. Underneath the image, a caption is written in black and white: ‘ObamaCare – coming soon to a clinic near you.’ The ‘C’ is depicted as a classic Communist hammer and sickle, a symbol not as regularly seen since the fall of the Soviet Union.
…Skuby, 66, a Spring Lake resident, saw nothing wrong with displaying his anti-Obama visual, which has been up since last week, for the world to see. “A lot of people feel the way I feel, but are just afraid to say it,” said Skuby, who said that public response on the street in front of his store ran “70 percent positive” in favor of the display’s anti-Obama sentiments. “It always comes down to the race card.”
… “My son married a girl that had a biracial kid. She is every bit a part of our family as the other two in this picture. I’m not racist. And as long as my grandchild doesn’t think I’m a racist, I’m perfectly fine with all of this.”
