Linda Harvey Calls President Obama “Racist” For Supporting LGBT Rights

The  always lovable Linda Harvey, founder of the ultra conservative antigay organization Mission: America and the unofficial “Face of Hate,” is running her mouth again. This time she’s making outrageous claims about President Obama and gay people.

The Christian conservative radio host called President Obama the “most racist president in U.S. history” because he supports abortion and LGBT rights. She also accused his policies of producing “more youth homosexual behavior.” Harvey also called Oprah his “cheerleader.”

Harvey was responding to remarks made recently by Miss Winfrey, who said she believes “there is a level of disrespect for the office [of the president] that occurs” because of his race.

Right Wing Watch posted the audio file of Harvey’s radio show, in which she said:

“I could not disagree more with Oprah Winfrey. Is Oprah unaware that she defends a black president who was re-elected to a second term? It’s not skin color that people object to with Obama, it’s his ungodly values that endanger Americans of all races and backgrounds.”

Thanks for clarifying, Linda.

“The slaughter of unborn African American babies, even those who could live outside the womb, the president is apparently okay with that,” she continued. “Young African American males disproportionately contract HIV. Obama’s policies have produced more youth homosexual behavior, not less.”

Evidently, Harvey didn’t get the recent memo that President Obama just pledged to spend $100 million to fund AIDS research.

Then she delivered the real kicker.

“If the definition of racism is to support policies that harm people of color, then Barack Obama is the most racist president in U.S. history and Oprah Winfrey is his cheerleader.”

Our only response to Harvey’s latest remarks is giving yet another eye roll. Though we love the mental image of Oprah dressed in a jumper and waving pom-poms in the air.

    I don’t know why sane Americans are so bothered about what people like this woman says. In the UK, people like this woman don’t get airtime. Who cares what some mad bitch says?

    Oh, sorry, it’s to create a story and generates copy. I remember now.

    @Sohobod: The reason? The reason is because she has a very large radio audience and there are millions of people who believe what she says. One needs to understand what the idiots like this woman are saying so we understand that battles we face.

    This is more than “to create a story and generate copy.” This is a fight we’re waging here in the United States for our very lives.

    Being in the UK, you are not involved in the day to day hate war that is being waged in the United States; therefore it is impossible for you to comprehend what is going on here.

    You both make really stupid points.

  • tada-no

    I never heard of her or her radio show, so I doubt there are millions who are listening to her nonsense so stop the excess drama. She like the Phelps family only thrive because they are constantly paraded in media. Why would they shut up and give up when their trollish, outrageous remarks get front page reporting.

    she needs to experience a “blanket party”

    @marc sfe: You are absolutely correct. No one seems to recall that Hitler’s NAZI Party was voted into power; there was no coup, no assassinations, no putsch. To me it is our economic policies that are in great need of change. 30 years of conservative economics has been a disaster for ordinary Americans.

    “Gay” is a race of people? She’s dumber than the dirt that fertilized her birth.

    I’m way the hell up in Canada and I know who this crunt is. Don’t underestimate the superstitious evangelical Americans and the armed servile toadies that lick their boots. Thank gravity there’s a border.

    I’d give her a nasty look, but apparently she already has one. The thing with people like her is that the more they spew their hateful bile, the more they convince others to come around to our side than the other way around. Keep it up Linda, you’re only digging a deeper hole for yourself and your ilk.

    @ 2eo

    Yeah, sorry, I’m stepping on your toes. It’s your job to make stupid points on this site.

  • krystalkleer

    the only people that listen to her are the brain dead ghost followers that emptied their piggy bank when they thought the world was come’n to an end 2 or 3 times a couple of years back…or those in the south that forgot to take the dishes outta the sink before they pee in it!

    Well she’s a fossil.

  • GymJockTX

    Man, what is it with this site suddenly “MODERATING” and then NOT POSTING any of my Comments? Did I say pee-pee or doo-doo?

  • Kangol

    This nutty [email protected] hag Linda Harvey needs to get help. Fast!
