Mitt Romney’s campaign is inching closer and closer to being accused of racial insensitivity. An adviser to the Romney campaign said the GOP presidential candidate would restore the Anglo-Saxon relationship with Britain, since Obama’s left-wing tendencies has made it hard for him to do, plus Romney was “better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Obama, whose father is from Africa,” the Telegraph reports. In other words, the white guy knows how to get along with Great Britain, not the black guy, right? In Mitt Romney’s eyes, the black guy just doesn’t get the whole Anglo-Saxon heritage thingy, right? Can you spell racial insensitivity? I seriously doubt the adviser could explain what the Anglo-Saxon heritage means. I shouldn’t be surprised with this latest dig from Romney since he is part of a religion that discriminated against blacks until the late 1970s:
In 1978, the church abolished a long-standing practice that kept black men from seeking priesthoods and black women from participating in temple ceremonies. In 2006 Mormon president Gordon B. Hinckley publicly declared the faith open to all people. Aw geez, only two years ago? That doesn’t bode well for this religion, no matter what people say. Source
Um, I grew up in Jamaica, which is a part of the Commonwealth, does that disqualify me from understanding the whole Anglo-Saxon angle? Please, spare me the bullsh*t. It is quite clear that Mitt Romney will literally say anything to get in the White House. Newsflash to Mitt Romney, in addition to whites in Great Britain, there are blacks, Indians, Asians, Latinos and Middle Easterners.
As the Republican presidential challenger accused Barack Obama of appeasing America’s enemies in his first foreign policy speech of the US general election campaign, advisers told The Daily Telegraph that he would abandon Mr Obama’s “Left-wing” coolness towards London.
