President Obama has enraged right wing talking heads once again. His crime: telling the truth. In President Obama’s address to the Turkish Parliament, he acknowledged that America is a “majority Christian” nation but not a “Christian nation.” The right wing spin machine is in full gear in an attempt to rally the remnant of the White Southern evangelical base that remains loyal to the Republican brand. By feeding their bigotry and engaging in revisionist history, the right-wing Klu Klux Klan-servatives are playing the “I told you he (Obama) was an unpatriotic socialist Muslim” card.
