White Supremacists for … Obama?

That we’re living in Bizarro World almost goes without saying, these days, and if you needed more proof, well, then, here it is: “In an informal survey,” reports Esquire magazine, “three out of four white supremacists prefer Obama.”

Yes, you read that right: some of the country’s most unabashed bigots are coming out for Barack! If you think the whole idea of an “Obamacon” is absurd, then what about an Obama-nazi? Too far over the edge? Well, not according to one Erich Gliebe, Lider Maximo of the National Alliance, the biggest neo-Nazi group in the country:

“Obama might be a better candidate for our cause because he?s racially conscious. One of our big things in the National Alliance is to raise the racial consciousness of our people. Young whites in universities, they?ve been stripped of any kind of racial identity. Obama may be a racist in a positive sense for his people—that will awaken a lot of the whites, knock some sense into them. They?ll see that non-white Americans are allowed to be proud of who they are, to be racially conscious, to talk about their people or their community without being attacked as being racist.  … Perhaps the best thing for the white race is to have a black president. My only problem with Obama is perhaps he?s not black enough.”

O-kaaaay … and it isn’t just Senor Gliebe, oh no: Rocky Suhayda, the Fuehrer of the rival American Nazi Party, not wanting to be left in the bandwagon’s dust, also jumps on board:

“White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally I?d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters.”

Tom Metzger, former Grand Dragon of the KKK and currently Supreme Nutball of the “White Aryan Resistance,” concurs:

Obama, according to his book, Dreams Of My Father, is a racist and I have no problem with black racists. I?ve got the quote right here: ‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother?s white race.’ The problem with Obama is he?s being dishonest about his racial views. I?d respect him if he?d just come out and say, ‘Yeah, I?m a black racist.’ I don?t hate black people. I just think it?s in the best interest of the races to be separated as much as possible.”

These people are crazy, of course, as are all racialists: they have race on the brain, and very little else in their brains. But it just goes to show—in an incredibly perverse, Bizarro World kind of way—how widespread the Obama-mania has become, and how readily people succumb to mass delusions.

Oh, by the way, the one black racist interviewed by Esquire is, naturally, for McCain. Going by the name of Yahanna, this dude declares:

“Every black leader that has some form of power has given black people false hope, when in fact, the closer they get to the white establishment, the more they become an actual enemy to black people. … McCain is definitely the better shot for black people.”
