The loony right has something new to freak out about since Obama issued a greeting to those who celebrate Kwanzaa just like he did for Christmas and every other major religious holiday, even ones celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs. And just like President Bush did every single year:
Remember when conservatives raged after President George W. Bush issued messages marking the celebration of Kwanzaa each and every year he was in the White House? Neither do they. That’s why the right-wing blogosphere is apoplectic that Barack Obama followed Bush’s lead in recognizing a holiday many African-Americans celebrate each year.
As he did in 2009 and 2010, Andrew Malcolm made sure his readers knew that President Obama and the First Lady issued an official White House statement marking Kwanzaa. Tammy Bruce quickly retweeted a message declaring, “Obama celebrates Kwanzaa…Idiots,” adding, “Oh freaking brother.” …
Had they simply followed Dubya’s practice of “clicking around” the “Internets,” they would have discovered that President Bush issued official Kwanzaa statements in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and2008.
But Bush only did it because Obama used his secret Muslim time travel machine to go back in time and perform a special voodoo ritual that clouded his judgment. It’s all part of Obama’s master plan to let gay Muslim terrorists take over the country and put Christians into FEMA concentration camps, where they’ll be forced to eat arugula with dijon mustard and watch Lady Gaga videos.
