Democrat says Opposition to Executive Order because of “Person Of Color Being In The White House”

Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) happens to be a well-known racist – or at least someone who enjoys employing ad hominem attacks instead of facts. He has made several comments about Republicans and their supporters being racists, and when given the opportunity, has always reinforced those comments instead of rescinding them.

Like earlier this year when while speaking on the Nation of Islam, radio Mr. Thompson said,Republicans are only anti-big government and anti-Obamacare because President Obama is black.”

Well, the Congressman is at it again.

He was on the Joe Madison radio show last Friday when he chose to call his opponents racists for disagreeing with President Obama’s Executive Amnesty.

“The president, by executive order, which everybody agrees — who has a real brain — that presidents since George Washington have had executive authority privilege to do certain things. He’s not doing anything that the Bushes, the Reagans, the Clintons, and other presidents all the way back to Eisenhower, as it addressed immigration. So but again, this is just a reaction in Bennie Thompson’s words to a person of color being in the White House.”

Sadly, not only does Congressman Thompson lie by claiming the opposition is racist, he also misunderstands Executive Orders and their history.

President Obama’s order on Amnesty goes far beyond the usual purview and de-facto creates a new law, simply at the flourish of the President’s pen. This is not how things work in a Constitutional Republic… that’s how things work in a Monarchy or Dictatorship. America is neither of those.
