    Pat Boone tells President Obama he’s tired of hearing Obama use the word ‘racist’
    BY Deborah Hastings
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    Singer Pat Boone, 81, has written an online letter to President Obama, saying the African American leader uses the word ‘racist’ too much.
    Pat Boone, the former 1950s crooner and an ultra-conservative fundamentalist, is asking President Obama to stop using the r-word.

    "Mr. President! For God's sake, and America's sake, quit so often calling crimes that involve a black person 'racist'! Boone wrote Thursday on the conservative site WorldNetDaily.

    Boone, 81, who had string of sugary hits in the 1950s and 60s, expressed disdain that Obama refers to racism as a present and prevalent problem in the United States.

    "As the president who came to office, a black man promising to bring people together, a man ideally suited for that job since you were born both black and white, you had a God-given chance to actually proclaim and demonstrate that racial divides and prejudice had greatly diminished and that our society was truly becoming colorblind," he wrote.

    Boone said Obama has instead portrayed America as a racist nation.

    "We are not!" Boone exclaimed.

    The former pop singer is a Tea Party member, vehemently anti-gay marriage and proclaimed he was "a birther" when Obama first sought office in the 2008 election. Birthers contended that Obama was not an American citizen and had been born in Kenya, not in Hawaii.

    Trayvon Martin, 17, who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman inside gated community in Florida.
    Boone also claimed that Obama's birth certificate may have been doctored to show he was born in the 50th state.

    Race, Boone said in his online column, had little or nothing to do with recent killings of unarmed black men by police, including the cases of Trayvon Martin in Florida and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

    After referring to Brown as "a very large black man" and referring to people of "the black persuasion," Boone also claimed that the June 17 slaughter of nine black worshippers at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C., was less about racism and more about hating Christianity.

    "Though this had a racist element, to be sure, it was more than that and of far greater significance to America than that. This boy wasn't just a sadist, or even criminally insane - he was carefully prepared and led by the Devil himself to kill as many Christians as he could.

    "The fact that they were black was an excuse more than a reason," Boone said.

    Conservative Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly went on a similar rant Tuesday night when he screamed "Most Americans are not racist. They're not!"

    People conveniently forget that Michael Brown had just ATTACKED the police officer in Ferguson. Brown was fighting to get the officer's hand gun.

    If people better understood the absolute filth which is ghetto culture, there would be no division.

    For some reason, educated and successful black people feel more in sync with gutter criminals than they do with the rest of America.

    And if he had killed the Officer Darren Wilson, obama would not have cared at all. To him, officers' lives don't matter.

    Pat,

    This might not have been the best week to publicize your thoughts in a letter.

    Why are the anti-Obama messages that always get mainstream pub, the religious fanatical loons who really have nothing to say other than Obama's pushing some left wing agenda nonsense. I really need to hear some cogent message from someone who isn't doing a mix of anti-psychotics.

    If people sat down and listened to the messages instead of the rhetoric, we might actually have a shot at some change for once.

    Respect for Our flag should start at the top, don't you think?

    Or at least not include the insanity that Satan was using Dylann Roof to kill Christians.

    He's been doing this for years. Wash, rinse, dry, repeat. Nothing like the rhetorical musings of a silly old man whose hey-day was in 1955 to get you going in the morning, yes? Well, why stop there; let's have ourselves a look-sey at America's second favorite crank, next to Dennis Miller (or would that be the late James Garner?). After all, he rejects evolution as a "false religion;" famously defended Mel Gibson; and questioned whether it was possible to be both a U.S. citizen and be against George W. Bush. Oh, and he thought Vietnam was a great effort (guess when you ain't doing the fighting, it's literally no skin off your nose, yes?).

    Here's a gem from his "column" in the World News Daily, which is the "news" source of choice for those who find Fox far too academic and leftist in its orientation:

    "A secretive cabal of Communist manipulators, trained in the malevolent disciplines and Machiavellian methods of Saul Alinsky, had taken an interest in a young black/white college student, originally schooled in Indonesia, who’d sought out Marxist professors (as he revealed later in his own autobiographical book) at Occidental College. In this young Marxist they felt they had a potential candidate for high elective office, first at the state and then possibly on the national level. He had a good mind, was glib and articulate and, according to a fellow Marxist at Occidental, was surprisingly angry. He was ready to foment a total overthrow of what he called “the colonial oppressor of Third World countries”! This cabal had lots of money, so they got the young man admitted to Columbia and then Harvard, where he somehow was maneuvered briefly into the president’s chair at the Harvard Law Review. He never wrote anything of record (except calling the Constitution “a flawed document”) or distinguished himself in any way, but it looked good on a future resume. Then, in my dream, this young anti-American man had brief jobs as a “community organizer” in Chicago, utilizing the disruptive, divisive and deceptive tactics he’d learned from Alinsky, and then went in a blinding scramble from state senator in Illinois to the U.S. Senate for a couple of low-profile, near invisible years … and then, in an astonishing coup, was “elected” president of the United States!"

    "Secretive cabal of Communist manipulators?" Yes, Mr. Boone, Harvard and the University of Chicago need a good old fashioned McCarthyist "purge" to expose the "cabal" of "Communists." Then again: Last time I checked my 401(k) balance, things were doing pretty well; so if that's Marxism, then bring it on! Thanks Obama indeed.

    What a putz.
