Anatomy of A Wingnut Smear: FASCISM On The March In The US of A

It began with the Teabagger proto-fascists, masking their racism and fear of the President's name and skin color behind idiotic 1774 costumes (tendentiously fascistic folks are BIG on uniforms). Then Newt Gingrich, angling to corner the fear and loathing constituency of right wing haters, fueled the flames of bigotry and odium, as he did before with the Islamic Center controversy in New York, by raising yet another fearsome boogie man — which he and tag teammate Mike Huckabee knew, going in, to be false — our MAU-MAU president. (Can't you just picture Newt and the Huckster leading the witch hunt and burning in the Salem Witch Trials?) Incidentally, it's no accident that "mau" means evil in Portuguese; it's malo in Spanish — close enough. Obviously, Newt and Mike are trying to nail down the Obama haters and fascist sympathizers in the Latin American community. Here's Newt (he got a great reception in the wingnut media), throwing his bomb:
“What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”

“This is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president,” Gingrich tells us.

“I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating — none of which was true,” Gingrich continues. “In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.”
Just to put this psycho-babble in language us regular people can understand ...When Newt claims such speculative garbage is the “most accurate, predictive model for his (Obama’s) behavior” he sounds like every racetrack tout trying to sell you on a can’t lose system to spot the next  Kentucky Derby winner.
“This horse here, Newt The Fearandloathing Grinch, is a cinch to finish first,” says the tout … “followed by Racist Huckster. Our system rates 'em higher than that crowd favorite … (lowering voice conspiratorially) They say he was born in KENYA! He just don’t fit in with our North American thoroughbred colony, know what I mean?”
Mike Huckabee, doing penance for having having had a surprise outbreak of decency when defending the First Lady from her racist critics, the Pigman and a despicable racist cartoon published on Breitbart's site, quickly fell back into the fascist fold, with a vengeance. He doubled down on Gingrich's smear, with plenty more of his own, to a wingnut radio host:
“What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya . . . One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American. If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.”
And to Mr. Taco/Falafel suckie-face, Bill-O The Clown, the Huckster recalled all those magical Boys Scout meetings most Americans never took part in. And Little League, too. Gee, I thought soccer  — that weird game foreigners play with their feet —was the popular kid's sport. Surprised they didn't invent a story about Obama playing soccer. I mean, legend has it that the Aztecs played it using the heads of their foes for balls. Imagine what Newt and the Huckster could do with such material! But Mr. Obama was partial to basketball — a true-blue American sport ... played by lots of black kids.
HUCKABEE: This is not a kid who grew up—
HUCKABEE: — you know, going to Boy Scout meetings and playing Little League baseball in a small town.
MR. TACO/FALAFEL SUCKIE FACE, BILL-O THE CLOWN: No, he is not a traditional—he is not a traditional guy.
The wingnuts may even have uncovered video of the Mau-Mau school they claim President Obama attended:

Finally, Glenn Beck closes the sale with night after night of wild conspiracies scaring the shit out of insecure xenophobic white people — ranging from Charlie Sheen (WINNING!), Planned Parenthood, to George Soros and a sinister Caliphate poised to engulf us all in a bacchanal of Sharia Law. Naturally, Beck works in the Birther conspiracy angle that the President wasn’t born in Hawaii but Kenya, etc. etc. in which strange inter-generational conspirators (possibly time travelers, possibly lizard people?) engineered it so that a phony newspaper birth notice is published and a look-alike stand-in named Barry with a killer three-point shot makes his way through high school in Hawaii.

In the meantime, the real Barack Obama was being SECRETLY schooled in the evil MAU-MAU anti-British, anti-imperialist … ANTI-AMERICAN doctrine to exact their revenge on the evil ugly white Americans 40 years later! WOW! This whimsical piece is titled:
