A Black President Visits A Red State – Causing White Sheets To Sing The Blues On Facebook


When President Barack Obama visited South Carolina on March 6, it was par for the course for Gov. Nikki Haley to greet him at the Columbia airport. So what if they’re polar opposites politically, right? That’s what governors do. And Haley even posted a photo of their quick handshake on her Facebook page. See?

But apparently the gov hasn’t minded that page since originally posting the picture on Friday afternoon, because the horrid, ugly, juvenile, and even openly racist comments to that post have yet to cease. (Almost 3,000! And Haley has yet to have them removed, too.)

Of course, there’ve been many counter-comments, which show the positive and purple direction this red state is moving in, but still … how low can some rightwingers go? See for yourself in this “Best of the Worst” compilation.

It wouldn’t be South Carolina if the comments didn’t include a religious theme.

Wouldn’t Secret Service want to look into these people issuing threatening statements?

There’s been no Death to the Birther Movement, apparently.

Of course, racism runs rampant on that thread.

Add in some “I’m not racist, but …”

There are even some racist replies to other commenters.

And, of course, “some of my best friends are negroes” (or “half breeds,” in this case).

Is it any wonder this was Obama’s first visit to South Carolina in seven years?
