Klayman: Obama is Just Like the KKK

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, went on the Alan Colmes radio show and spouted his usual mishmash of bizarre conspiracy theories and empty accusations. But he trotted out a new obnoxious comparison, saying that Obama is just like the KKK for some nebulous reason.

Later in the show, Colmes remarked, “You can disagree with his policies, you can think he’s taken the country in the wrong direction, but to impute him with some kind of evil intent? Really?”

Klayman said Obama is evil. “He does have evil intent, because what he’s doing is, he’s doing exactly to people other than his own people what he didn’t want to have happen to his people. That is evil. It was evil when the Ku Klux Klan did it, it was when J. Edgar Hoover tried to destroy Martin Luther King,” he said.

Colmes asked, “Are you trying to compare Obama to the KKK?”

Klayman declared, “It’s evil that he’s trying to destroy Christians, Jews, and whites.”

Colmes asked again, “Are you comparing Obama to the KKK?”

To which Klayman admitted, “I am. I am. He is as equally as bigoted as they are.”

Colmes asked, “Exactly how? Exactly how is he comparable to the KKK?”

“Because he’s making us pay a price,” he said. “You know it’s not you or your kids, it’s not our fault that people before us had slavery, that was wrong. And we tried to correct that.”

Klayman also said that blacks have more rights than whites do, just after previously saying he is not a racist. When Colmes asked what rights blacks have that whites don’t, he came up empty. He tried to assert that Obamacare is racist, and has to do with covering blacks only.

Gee Larry, I don’t suppose you could quote the president saying anything remotely like wanting Darren Wilson’s “head on a stick,” can you? Or cite some specific way that he’s making you “pay a price” for slavery? Or point to the provision in the Affordable Care Act that applies only to black people? No? I didn’t think so. But making shit up seems to be your particular specialty.

    Wait — Klayman is now endorsing Obama? Putting him on the side of the Good Guys who saved the Nation from carpetbaggers and niggers?

    Ed’s Staver/Klayman duopoly always makes me feel a bit sorry for Andy Schlaffley, the third leg of the “dumbest lawyer” trinity. He’s too insignificant for Ed to even notice. Even RationalWiki has taken their Conservapedia Wigo off the main page.

    He’s also forgetting Orly Taitz, who I guess has been dropped because she’s only a part time lawyer in between real estating and dentisting.

    point to the provision in the Affordable Care Act that applies only to black people

    The ACA is intended to provide medical insurance to poor urban people [wink, wink, nudge, nudge, know what I mean?].

    … making shit up seems to be your particular specialty.

    Then howcum he “came up empty” right when making shit up was most needed?

    Good name for a band.

    Yes, the “thinking” here can only be, the ACA disproportionately benefits poor people -> black people are disproportionately poor -> therefore the ACA is racist. Never mind why black people are disproportionately poor. It’s certainly not Larry Klayman’s fault. He tried to correct that. As long as correcting it didn’t involve, you know, letting them have any of his money.
