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.
