Latest Right-Wing Meme (Again): Calling Obama Un-American; King: No American Experience; Limbaugh: He’s “A Foreign Agent”
Rep. Steve King of Iowa believes President Obama is a “Muslim Marxist” who “does not have an American experience,” according to remarks he both made and agreed with at a town hall meeting.
KING: I’ve just started to think about what we need to do and I have made this argument for a long time now that I am in the business of seeking to embarrass the administration into enforcing the law, particularly with regard to immigration.
BYSTANDING CONSTITUENT: He won’t do that. He’s a Marxist! He’s a Muslim Marxist.
KING: He’s at least a Marxist. And he surely understands the Muslim culture.
CONSTITUENT: He surely does. That’s where he grew up with, that’s his culture.
KING: He doesn’t have an American experience. He does not have an American experience.
CONSTITUENT: He didn’t grow up in America.
Rush Limbaugh, meanwhile, is busy calling Obama “the first anti-American president” and refers to Obama as “a foreign agent.”
