Rudy Giuliani disappointed that “Americans are afraid to be racist any more”

21 Feb

NEW YORK–days after Rudy Giuliani told a group of Republicans that President Obama “doesn’t love America,” and then observed that the president had “grown up white,” the former New York mayor expressed his frustration that “it’s like no one supports racism any more.”

“Forty years ago, sure, we were mostly past the dogs and fire hoses, but you could still call someone ‘uppity’ without getting in trouble,” said Giuliani, speaking to a chapter of the Juan Peron Fan Club. “It’s like you can’t impugn the patriotism of the President of the United States without having your motives questioned.”

In a conciliatory moment, Giuliani, who at one point went more than four minutes without mentioning 9/11, also observed that “while President Obama hates America, and wants to surrender to the communists, he has a lot of good athletic skills, and can probably learn a trade or something.”

Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), at whose fundraiser Giuliani made his original inflammatory comments, condemned the former mayor’s remarks. “Of course we’re all thinking that kind of stuff,” Walker said. “But we only say it out loud at closed-door fundraisers.”

    As an argentine that believes Juan Peron destroyed a great nation and installed a government of mobsters, I have to say that Peron was not a racist–be it just for the fact that there were no black people at all in Argentina. He was simply a fascist thief and a thug.

      No, I agree, fair point–not trying to say he was a racist; I was trying to imply Giuliani has a Peronist approach to the exercise of political power
