Republican Senate Candidate Says Obama’s Blackness Is Shielding Him From Impeachment by Jason Easley for PoliticusUSA
"In an interview with the Daily Times Herald, Iowa Republican senate candidate Sam Clovis claimed that President Obama’s race is saving him from impeachment.
Clovis said, “I don’t think so, and I’ll tell you why. It’s not that what he has done would not rise to the level where it might be impeachable. I don’t think it’s a practical, pragmatic issue. And simply because I don’t think the nation is ready for it. You know, within this generation, we went through the impeachment of a president, and it didn’t end well, and now we have a situation where race is thrown into the cards as well. Whether we like it or not, race is an issue.”
Clovis was asked if Obama was white would he be impeached. He answered, “I wouldn’t say that I think people would.”
He was asked if he thought the only reason why Congress isn’t going after impeachment is the color of the president’s skin. Clovis answered,”I would say there are people in the House of Representatives right now that would very much like to take the opportunity to start the process. And I think the reason that they’re not is because they’re concerned about the media.”
This is an example of Republicans trying to have it both ways. On one hand, they are claiming that the president has committed impeachable offenses, but, on the other hand, they can’t impeach the president because he is black.
Republicans always claim that President Obama has committed a high crime, but they can’t name anything that Obama has done that is grounds for impeachment. The Republican Party is so deep into their blind hatred of the president that they aren’t making any sense.
It isn’t the media reaction that Republicans need to worry about if they were to try to impeach Obama. The majority of the country would be outraged, and the impeachment crazed Republicans would certainly be thrown out of office.
Cowardly racists like Sam Clovis don’t belong in the U.S. Senate, and his dog whistle impeachment cries will get him the deserved scorn of a nation."

My Comments…Jason Easley is on point!
White Racists are such Cowards. Unless they have on a robe with a mask and riding a horse or in a car at night, they are either apologizing for things THEY say… or THEY are trying to come up with convenient excuses to keep from saying things they want to say and things they want to do. If you are going to be a racist, BE a racist.
Racists will remain racists until and unless we …Black Folks and White Folks…call them out. Have you called out a racist recently?
