Baby Jesus wept

Nothing like mixing the birth of Jesus - Emmanuel, God is with us - and racial bigotry.

Chip Saltsman, former campaign manager of presidential aspirant Gov. Mike Huckabee, is seeking the headship of the RNC. Saltsman sent out a racist Christmas CD to RNC committee members, I assume to garner their support. On the playlist is "The Star Spanglish Banner" and the Limbaugh-approved song, "Barack the Magic Negro."

Ta-Nehisi Coates' take:
Get it? Negroes!! Spanglish!! No?? Clearly your [sic] too PC. Seriously, where do people get this idea that the GOP is racist? It really is one of the great mysteries of our time. Oh well. Saltsman's got my vote. Even if he doesn't [sic] believes I shouldn't have one. He's still got it.
Adds Josh Marshall:
... it really does seem like the RNC chairmanship race is down to a straight-up match between the black candidates and the racist candidates.
Baby Jesus wept.

“a Christmas gift”
Hmmmh! Let’s see, A long time ago only Jews were God’s chosen people, then comes Jesus and teaches people about the love of God for his creation, he is crucified, dies and rises from the dead and promises to come back to judge humanity, his 12 disciples convert people regardless of race and ethnicity and we have a universal church.
Then we get the Christian(followers of Christ) right and they judge people by the color of their skin, they talk to God daily but do not have the humility that the saints had after talking to the Lord of time, space and creation, they think he is their personal genie, “name it and claim it” They become increasingly xenophobic and spread their hate around the world even on Christmas day, the birth day of the aforementioned savior who died for the sins of the world. It is indeed a shame. “And Jesus wept.” For this reason there will be final judgment when humanity will realize how we have wronged God and each other by abusing his creation.

These are the same people that believe Jesus was a blue-eyed Anglo-Saxon, not a man of Jewish heritage.........go figure.

Anon 3:31, don't forget the King James Version being the literal truth of God.
