An Appeal to Racial Fears

John McCain and Sarah Palin were backstage, and Lehigh County GOP Chairman Bill Platt was warming up the crowd of 6,000 at a rally here for the Republican ticket.

"Think about how you'll feel on November 5 if you wake up in the morning and see the news, that Barack Obama -- that Barack Hussein Obama -- is the president-elect of the United States," Platt said. The audience at the Lehigh University arena booed at the thought of it.

"The number one most liberal senator in the United States of America was, you guessed it, the ambassador of change, Barack Hussein Obama," he added.

The GOP's highlighting of Obama's middle name is the most overt use of racist stereotyping since Willie Horton. The Red Meat crowd has been conditioned by the GOP to associate Hussein with the Sand Ni##ers restricting access to America's Middle-East crude oil reserves .
