During an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday, Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity that President Obama wants America to be as it is was before the Civil War. This comment was part of an overall conservation about the not-so controversial “secret” Breitbart tape of a college age President Obama introducing Professor Derek Bell at a Harvard rally.
“???Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand that that gravity, that mistake, took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin.”

So let me get this straight. Sarah Palin is accusing President Obama, of wanting to take America back to a time when men of his color were slaves? How does that make any sense? Why on Earth would President Obama want to make himself a slave, when he is the leader of the free world? That scenario, of course, is the wet dream of conservatives, but not the President. Conservatives like Hannity and Palin would love nothing more than to see African Americans in chains. With the possible exception of Glenn Rice. Palin apparently likes one black man.
Sarah Palin has once again demonstrated how important education and reading is to our society. This is clearly a case of not knowing anything about American history which is something Republicans have a lot of experience with. It’s either that or Republicans are just desperate to accuse President Obama of anything they hope will stick.
